the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

While I'm vehemently against moving The Game away from the last weekend of the regular season, I don't have too many qualms with playing around with the time. The major negative is that nighttime at the end of November is likely to be damn cold. But I don't think it destroys any pagentry of the game to move the time of day around. The ND night game has proven that it can enhance the atmosphere.

I'm pretty much a VT hater, but I've been to a game or two at Lane stadium and it's a legit college football experience.

#2 E-literate city sounds a lot less impressive if you say it out loud.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||So, Brian, what is your take||
So, Brian, what is your take on Beilein sitting Burke in the first half? You've long railed against this Beilein policy, but I'm not hearing a lot of dissent around these parts this time. Obviously that's because he ended with four fouls so it turned out to be the right decision. If he finishes with two fouls, the criticism gets louder, but unfortunately Beilein hasn't figured out how to peer into the future.
I agree with Beilein sitting guys based on this policy, because all minutes in a game are not of equal importance. Despite Albrecht going crazy, I would rather have Burke at the end than an extra 12 minutes in the first half.

Your feet do not have to be set to take a charge. Yes, that's usually a determining factor, but it's not a rule. Legal guarding position is all it takes. Obviously we're biased around these parts, but I thought he laid claim to the area before the defender and took it in the chest. I suppose I could see it going the other way but I think 9 times out of 10 the ref makes a charge call there.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||If they want to co complain||
If they want to complain about a call, I would pick the one on Carter-Williams where Hardaway gives him the chicken wing but it's called a block. Whatever though, it's water under the bridge and Syracuse had their opportunities at the end. One call doesn't make the game and if the shoe was on the other foot, I would begrudgingly admit that.

A more eloquent reply than mine. And I reiterate your stance that this isn't the place to argue about the Fab Five. But they ARE a part of Michigan history for good and for bad.
|6 weeks 18 hours ago||I disagree. Obviously there's||
I disagree. Obviously there's a lot more to this discussion, but denying the symbolizism of this team making it to the final four 20 years after the fab five is ignoring the historical significance. I don't want it to dominate the discussion - and I don't think it has - but it's a part of the story.

Not sure this so much bodes well for Ross as it bodes poorly for Gibbs. But, I'll still take it.

Fair enough for off the court reasons, but I loved watching him play. That man could shoot the rock.

I don't get the grumbling and I think Brian doesn't give Purdue enough credit. It's a road win against a team that just handled UW at the Kohl Center -- a tall task indeed. Terone Johnson is a stud and Purdue always plays good defense. They've obviously gotten much better as the season progressed. That's a top-tier Big Ten team next year with the same roster.
Sure, we could have played better, but you can say that for every game you play in conference.

It does look like Zeller flexes his arm as the motion occurs, which would indicate that he initiated said motion. Still speculation, but I think it's fair to say that you can't 100% put this on Nix.
Generally, I side with the team not coached by Tom Creen.
In other news, I just wasted 2 minutes of my life.

Unless one of those coaches was Matta, they all better go back to the drawing board.

Are you using R to analyze this data? The graphs look like R outputs. Just curious because I'm taking an R Data Analysis class on Coursera right now.

Good write up as usual. The loss doesn't hurt as much as closing a chapter on Michigan's non-pro style offense experiment and saying goodbye to Denard.
Also, I'm suprised there was no mention of Denard becoming the all-time NCAA QB rushing leader - passing Pat White.
P.S. Those uniforms were ridiculous. I encourage everyone to provide feedback to the athletic department if you agree. In the end $ are their analytics, but negative feedback probably registers too as it ends up hurting the bottom line eventually.

Not that we're in danger of losing any of those guys to MSU, but it pains me that Steve Mariucci is coaching since he's good friends with Tom Izzo.

Good to know. I'm sure he's devastated to have lost your respect. By the way, please post your full name and address so I can judge you if you ever make a terrible decision some time. It's fun to judge people who we don't know and have no stake over.

I think a combo of option 1 & 2 works best. You only get the best of the best with patches and it allows you to grow for the future.
I like the idea of expanding the use of the patches overall. I think it's a good way to honor former players and reward current players.
