Even though we don't have "starters" returning...doesn't mean we don't have key rotation players returning who were quasi starters.
Case in point. Smith is our RB starter...even though other RBs carried the load more than him in some games this year.
Our weakness isn't a rotational player stepping up it's the question marks.
I'm worried about.
...and just for fun here are my projections at those spots
LT - Cole
Hopefully our pass rush is amazing next year...or the kids grow up fast.

I met a rival coach that said that he thought Luke was the most talented of all the kids...for what it's worth.

Before that last punt...he was arguably the MVP for Michigan in that game...too bad.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I agree||
Also, while watching with how big screens are common I don't know why they don't show synchronized pictures for replays for the viewer.
Two pictures or even four at a time.

Hahah...this was my experience as well!
Luckily I got 3rd place and someone else has to be commish.
Advice...all rules and ethics around trades need to be well established....and if you veto trades that both teams want...fair or not...the you're an asshole.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||Dumbass||
I'm so fucking sorry that your coach raped kids, and that makes is hard for you to recruit.
What a dipshit.
If you want to move on, ask everyone of those kids, and all of there family's for forgiveness, and once they move on, you can.
Until then, shut the hell up and live in the shit storm your school caused. If you get paid by a school that did this, then you take on their obligations too.
|44 weeks 4 days ago||Final Ranking||
I justed used the final ranking
|44 weeks 4 days ago||Couple of examples||
Here are some more examples to answer the comments above:
IF there was a 1st four in this system:
Some interesting teams that would miss the field:
Indiana vs. Iowa
There are absolutely flaws in this system (home vs away, margin of victory, teams ranked 150+, the arbitrary nature of a 24th ranked team vs 26th, etc)
When I looked at teams on the bubble I looked at how many top teams did you beat (Top 25), how you did vs. your peers (25-100), and if you lost to any bad teams (100+). I don't think losing to a great team, or beating a horrible team should mean much. I then put a ranking system together that generally matched that.
I'm a bit of a nerd and liked the output of the numbers...hope some of you found it interesting too.

1. I agree that an away victory is harder than a home victory. My thought process was to use a straight point system like the NHL which doesn't reward away victories. Does it matter? Sure. I like the simplistic approach though, as it allows you to know where you stand, and how much a loss/victory means.
2. I thought about this...and landed on a victory visa crappy team (over a hundred) should be worth 1 point.
3. It is hard, and will always be hard for mid-majors. Completely agree.
The fun part of this system, to me, is its simplicity, fairness, and ability to let you know where you stand.
It isn't perfect, for sure, and that wasn't the thought/intention.
Also to note:
1. It is based on final RPI (since it's easy to calculate)
|46 weeks 1 day ago||Horrible Home Refs...||
Am I biased? I just get used to having bad refs when we are away...but it always seems like we don't get the 50/50 calls or even the 60/40 calls otherteams do when we are home
|48 weeks 5 days ago||I can't be mad at Mich||
I can't be mad at Mich...I have no clue what is going on with this game.
|48 weeks 5 days ago||What just happened?||
Who knows the refs are blocked, the ball is blocked...but you can see up someone's ass so that's nice.
|48 weeks 5 days ago||Can't see!||
Move the hell out of the way!
Oh yeah your the official or another player blocking the camera...
|48 weeks 5 days ago||Ahhhhh||
You can't tell what is going on with this angle. God damn it. I'm pissed.

Let's give this kid a break and let him make the biggest decision of his life (to date) with a little less judgement.

1) Texas - Football is a religion in Texas...you don't have to sell it.
2) Bama - NFL pipeline
3) USC - weather, history and talent pool
4) OSU - history and talent pool
5/6) Florida / Florida St - weather, history and talent pool
7) Notre Dame - Catholics, history, TV
8) Michigan - History
...then it's SEC bagmen...

At 2:15 left Dawkins hit a jumper, and they awarded points to the wrong team...and never fixed the score.
Dawkins also hit a 3 with time running out to cover the spread...

I've had a few offers pulled on me, so I feel your pain, but I would say two things.
1. Having a company pull an offer usually means you would of worked for a jackass manager. Aka your life would be hell (unless you are a chosen one). If you make an unrealistic counter-offer and the manager really wants you, usually they will act as a buffer and get to a good middle ground.
2. Negotiating offers got me to double my salary in 5 years (Im an engineer that didn't start super high). Also, knowing that a company really wants you really makes you feel pride, and shows that they are willing to invest in you and your career.
The great thing you have is leverage. You have a job, and time to wait for someone that really wants you.
My 2 cents.

I may be in the minority on this site...but if you hit women or if you do anything that monsters do to others. If you want a second chance two things need to happen.
If you don't do #1 right away you don't pass #2.
I love Michigan football, but I love the rights of a woman to live fear free...More. I guess that happens when you grow up with two sisters and have two nieces.
