Isn't there a site rule against hot girl pics and gifs? I thought that was a thing.

My girlfriend is hot and Bolivian. She would disagree with you.

UMBig11 has been wrong about several things this past season. I trust that he's connected somehow b/c Brian has vouched for his insider connections. But he's claimed to know a few things that just haven't been true. Remember the "Peppers will be suspended for the 1st half versus Hawaii" rumor?

Um... Did you miss the part where I said "There's nothing wrong" with this?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I was thinking the same||
I was thinking the same thing. Many of the recruitniks claim that this kid is quiet and doesn't seek out attention. If that was really true, then, why did he drag the speculation out so, so long? It seems to me if he was leaning this way the entire time, he could've avoided all of this by simply reaffirming his commitment.
Of course, there's nothing wrong with an 18 year-old enjoying all of this. It's his life and we're the people commenting on a thread about his college choice. It's just... seemingly contradictory actions if a kid really does want to avoid the spotlight.

That's the best nerd joke I've heard in a long time.
I literally LOL'd, as the millenials would say.

Watch the 2015 OSU game. Then watch the 2016 OSU game. Then re-evaluate your "things haven't improved" comment.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Hoke's classes were never||
Hoke's classes were never THAT high. I think he had the #6 and #7 classes (or something like that) in back-to-back years, but not 3 Top 10 in a row, with a #1 class. Plus one of those classes include all the O-line busts that, in retrospect, was clearly overrated.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Which leg did he hurt during||
Which leg did he hurt during Spring Ball in 2014? Was it the same leg? I have no idea if that even makes a difference in terms of recovery. Hopefully the damage is not severe enough to force him out of all pre-draft workouts.

Nope. I read PFTCommenter regularly and I still couldn't decipher about 30% of what was written on that blog post.

Wasn't it UMBig who implied that Peppers was going to be suspended for at least the 1st half of the Hawaii game? This is not the first time he's been wrong.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Michigan has hired those||
Michigan has hired those coaches before the recruits committed, but you are correct--that seems to be a distinction without much of a difference. And it is legal per the NCAA.

Thanks Gregg!! I was only 90% sure last night this account was you. Now, like you with Greg Little and Josh Rosen, I'm 100% sure!

We did ok with Rashan Gary last year. And Asiasi.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||It depends on what you're||
It depends on what you're looking for when you say "overrated". If you are looking for beautiful women, there probably isn't another city in the world (per capita) that has the talent of Miami.
Wynwood, Coconut Grove (although locals will tell you the Grove is overrated), Coral Gables, or Brickell--mostly everyone will find something to their liking in one of those neighborhoods.
Also, you can have a great time in Miami without ever going to South Beach. I'd recommend avoiding it entirely.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Definitely in the 247/4||
Definitely in the 247/4 recruiting site era. I think the 98 class had the #1QB, #1RB, and #1WR in the nation (Henson, Fargas, Walker(?)). It would be tough to top that, ever.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Yes.||
|7 weeks 23 hours ago||Conservative calls versus OSU||
Conservative calls versus OSU were, in part, due to Wilton not being 100% healthy.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Not sure I would go QUITE||
Not sure I would go QUITE that far, but I could see a rematch playing out similarly to the Bama-LSU 11/12 championship game. Michigan would still dominate the OSU o-line early, and with a healthy QB Michigan would be able to open up the full offensive playbook and get enough of a lead to force Ohio State to pass. Once that happens, game over.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Maybe not, but you can||
Maybe not, but you can certainly expect to win with a defense sacking JT what, 8 times? And holding OSU to 150 yds in 3 quarters. Also, Ohio State has exceptionally-talented players trying to induce Michigan into said mistakes. The refs just have to call the game consistently. There is a difference.
I get the "refs didn't lose the game" for something like Iowa, when there was an isolated, dubiuos call at the end of the game that did have some potential impact on the outcome, but was not as influential as 12 other plays Michigan didn't make. The frustration from yesterday is NOT from one isolated, dubious call. There's a reason Harbaugh said nothing about the face mask on the Iowa punt and everything about the refs yesterday.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||You just put words in your||
You just put words in your own mouth. In your first reply, you made no mention whatsoever related to bad officiating.
Now, you say "[w]hat I did say is that turnovers were just as big of a factor". No, originally you made no comparison between the impact of bad officiating versus the impact of the TOs. Like I said, you put words in your own mouth.
So... What does that make you?

Did it land at the 15? I thought it landed close to the 10, but I may be wrong.
Regardless, the key error in that series of plays was Grant Perry's running into the punter. The argument at the time (on my Twitter, at least) was that the penalty didn't hurt UM b/c the Buckeyes promptly went 3-and-out again. However, if you remember the first punt, Peppers fair caught the kick at the 30. The 2nd punt was downed at the 5. The running-into-the-punter penalty cost Michigan 25 yards of field position. If Wilton is standing at his own 23 yard line instead of in the end zone, does he even throw that ball?
|8 weeks 1 day ago||It is also a fool who denies||
It is also a fool who denies that poor, one-sided officiating played a huge role in the loss.
I can make 2 statements:
1. Without the 3 turnovers by Speight, Michigan wins the game despite poor officiating.
2. WIthout 5-6 questionable to outright wrong calls, Michigan wins the game despite the turnovers.
Those statements are not mutually exclusive; they can both be true. Therefore, asserting that poor officiating cost Michigan the football game, in and of itself, does not imply that crucial UM mistakes also cost Michigan the game.
The difference is that in 1 case, there is an exceptionally talented football team trying to induce Michigan to make bad plays. The refs just have to call a consistent game. An error-free game against an opponent like OSU is an unreasonable expectation. A fairly called game from the officials is an entirely reasonable expectation.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I think they were cowards the||
I think they were cowards the whole game. Every borderline call went OSU's way. PI calls were horribly inconsistent AND one-sided.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I hope he leaves, because it||
I hope he leaves, because it is the best decision for him personally. In my opinion, once he is able to concentrate on a single position, he will be a much better defensive player. I understand Michigan using him the way they did, because he is so much more talented than the other options, but in the NFL he won't have to play 15 positions, and he'll only have to excel at 1 (or 2 or 3 maybe).
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Even if Alabama loses,||
Even if Alabama loses, they'll still be the only SEC team in the playoff. Everyone else has 3 losses except A&M, and their 2nd loss was to a team with a losing record.
|11 weeks 19 hours ago||Not accurate at all. Several||
Not accurate at all. Several scenarios where Michigan can make it in without winning the BIG.
|11 weeks 19 hours ago||Very easily, and in fact I||
Very easily, and in fact I think it's likely if Wisconsin, Penn State and Colorado all win out. Under that scenario, if Michigan beats OSU but loses in the Big 10 championship game to Wisconsin, there would be only 2 undefeated conference champs--Clemson and Alabama. The other 3 champs would have at least 2 losses (Wisconsin, Colorado, and whoever from the Big12). In this scenario, Michigan would have 4 wins over teams in or close to the Top 10 in the CFP rankings, including head-to-heads over 2 conference champs. They're in under that scenario, ahead of any other teams except Clemson and Alabama.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||The 97 team gave up 24 to||
The 97 team gave up 24 to Iowa, only beat a bad Notre Dame team by a TD at home, and let Ohio State back in the game after being up 20-0. No team dominates every single week--particularly in today's college game with the wide diversity of offenses. After 8 games, we have enough evidence to judge. You are just wrong.
