|2 days 11 hours ago||So...||
...you're saying it was lucky for Michigan State to play the game under those circumstances?
Doesn't really sound like a curse.
|2 days 11 hours ago||It's rather amazing||
Worst defense in program history in 2010, and in 2016 it's arguably the best it's ever been.
|2 days 15 hours ago||They beat a stacked Ohio State team after that||
|1 week 2 days ago||You're right||
But it's a consideration, not an issue.

We know, by this point, what we get with RichRod. He's a clever, innovative coach who's good, but not the best. He'll put together some good teams and he'll put together some bad ones. He'll have some great games and some not-so-great ones. Good, but not elite. Honestly, that's not a sin. That's why I think Arizona's a good fit for him. There isn't the guillotine hanging over his head like there is at a blue blood.

Is it just me, or does that not seem all that bad?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Had 40 yards in the damn Super Bowl||
I'd take that
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Praise be to Tebow!||
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, it is strange||
Let's not forget that Brian Kelly won a bazillion national championships at Grand Valley (D-II) and did a great job with Cincinnati too. It doesn't mean that Notre Dame should be great, but I don't get why they're bad.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Hell, even Saban's only done it once ever.||
|4 weeks 4 days ago||You know||
Rankings honestly mean little to me anymore. I don't care to haggle over who belongs where. Honestly, pick any five consecutively-ranked teams and they could all beat each other under the right circumstances.
So I no longer care to argue. We're a consensus #4? Cool. Sparty's #9? Cool. Let's play.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Basically||
Football's a weird thing because so few games are played relative to other sports. A three-game stretch can swing the narrative of an entire season for good or bad, in college or the NFL.

Dude wrecked shit in the B1G.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Replace Dennison while you're at it||
Place is like an alien prison from Half-Life 2.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Well then.||
Honestly, if they went through the entire game play-by-play and evaluated each individual player and came out with a "dominant" score, then I'll trust them. I'll take that over some of the panicked hot takes people had during the game.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Sometimes I look back||
and wonder how the fuck that Michigan State team wound up winning the damn Rose Bowl.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah so, about that Notre Dame-Texas game.||
If you missed it, watch it. It was crazy good.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||My thought:||
Because Hoke's never been a coordinator, there'll be a natural learning curve. He can really only get better.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||My girlfriend goes to WMU||
While reading this thread with me, she was very happy to see the "maybe Western is actually good" comment, but decidedly less thrilled with the "Fleck won't be at Western long" comment.
She, like most of the Western female population, is quite a big fan of dreamy Coach Fleck.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||General Observation:||
Other teams this weekend came out completely flat and nearly lost to quite inferior opponenets. Michigan looked fucking good. That's all.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||So||
I've decided that I like Chris Evans.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Second guessing time?||
|7 weeks 11 hours ago||- Sixth round pick out of Michigan||
- Backup to mostly-capable franchise quarterback
- General manager pinched from New England Patriots
Basically, if Stafford goes down with an injury in game two, the Lions are destined to become a dynasty. Suck it, Packers.
|7 weeks 13 hours ago||O'Neil was really good before The Event||
He really did have a nice touch.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Jake Butt's a senior?!||
Say it ain't so
|8 weeks 16 hours ago||Pro football centers don't even have it that nice||
I was blown away and simultaneously had to wonder at the fact that this is a center built for college students.
|8 weeks 23 hours ago||My solution||
My solution is to get tickets in the student section. That way I get to stand all game.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Also a friendly reminder to the community||
Don't be a dick about labelling things OT or not, or arguing with each other about whether a certain post is OT or not, or otherwise insulting the poster's intelligence for posting an OT thread. Leave the housekeeping to the mods.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Read the Hoke article||
Even an old dog can learn new tricks! Hoping the best for him.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Heh. Whoops.||
For those of you confused, Michigan's recruiting department tweeted out a picture of a bunch of players Harbaugh has coached who made it into the NFL. Inspiring, right? Unfortunately, Ryan Shazier, who played for Ohio State, was also accidentally included in the graphic.
