They counted them correctly, the number just needed to be updated to reflect our 47 preseason all-Americans.

Ghostofhoke was a legendary hall monitor in the fourth grade. Still holds the school record for most demerits issued and is revered among his classmates for demonstrating the talent to invent arbitrary complaints at such a young age.

A network could staff the booth with James Earl Jones on play-by-play and the football genius version if Christopher Walken, and still people would scream "worst announcers ever."

I live on the west coast and know a lot of Arrizona alums. Their general attitude toward Arizona's football program is (a) yes we love it, and (b) yes we fully acknowledge it's a total joke. If you watch the video from that perspective, it's terrific. Something like that would be a disaster at M where football is taken seriously, and for good reason. But in Tucson that's a riot.

Which is presumably why the OP doesn't want to spell out exactly where he got his information from and how.

Tebow, Manziel, and RGIII were awesome college QBs. Michigan is a college team. So I am not sure what your point is with that.

Obviously the S&P+ rankings are more accurate than the FPI or Ed Feng model.

This was very, very helpful. As somebody who's been really trying to learn the game better over the past several years, I can't stress enough how much I get out of these posts and the reall strong comments that inevitably follow. So, thanks Seth, Space, Magnus, et al.

Sparty finally figured out that they are less likely to misspell the words if they just take something from us and modify it, rather than come up with their own stuff.
|4 days 5 hours ago||Northwestern||
Honestly, Northwestern might not be a bad pick to win the West. They will probably be solidly average on both sides of the ball.

I think they have this poll about once a month.

You can have coffee, just no cream or sugar. And no cup--you have to drink straight from the pot.

The moms should probably make this a sticky thread.
|5 days 8 hours ago||Woodson||
I was at UM from 1993-97 so I will add another vote for Woodson, with Wheatley a close #2. Braylon Edwards was another amazing talent but he wasn't as consistently dominant as those two.
|5 days 15 hours ago||Constraint Theory||
Constraint theory holds that an offense will prefer to run its base play unless an opponent "cheats" to stop the base play, in which case the offense will run a constraint play to punish the defense for cheating.
If Harbaugh is truly an adopter of constraint theory, then to be a pass-first unit would suggest that Michigan should adopt a pass as its base play. That's not the worst idea in the world. A simple hook route to Butt, a smoke pass to Darboh, or any number of short or even intermediate routes to Chesson could probably be reliably executed against straight-up coverage.
I still think Harbaugh would prefer to build his offense around Power O or some other inside running play. But I agree we're likely to remain a pass-first unit both because of the limitations of our O-line and because of the surplus experienced talent in the receiving corps. Interesting balance for Harbaugh between doing what he most prefers and adapting to the current roster.
Nice diary, dragonchild.

TCU has declared war on Ferris State.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Hurst||
Even if he gets a high draft grade, it's not certain Hurst leaves. Plenty of guys have come back with less room tk improve their stock than Hurst will have.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Fair enough||
But then you also have to be okay with soft-ass zone coverage.
|1 week 16 hours ago||OSU & MSU||
I think Sparty is the team that's in for 4-5 losses this season. I think their offense will be okay, but not great, and their defense isn't the dominant unit from three or four years ago. OSU will still win 10+ games I think; ridiculous amount of raw talent and their offense is mych more plug & play.

Hey, be nice to the OP. Tomorrow he has to catch an early train, has to be to work at nine. And if he had an aeroplane he still couldn't make it on time.

If Sunday is the "penultimate" day of rest and relaxation, then you must have Monday off.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Baylor||
Although I agree with your overall position, Baylor's fourth game is against Oklahoma State. So I am not sure they can just sleepwalk to 6-0. 5-1 though maybe.
Also, there's a Northwestern State??

Hugh Freeze is not a good enough coach to win the SEC.

Do they even have a QB?
