Reflux problems really can mirror heart problems. My mom appeared to have a heart issue not too long ago. It took a battery of tests - and a surprising amount of time - to learn it was just a reflux issue. I have no idea about Meyer, of course, but what he described should not be taken as obvious b.s.

They lost one game to a very good program (as much as it pains me to say that) in weather that hindered their ability to take advantage of their presumed superiority in the air. And then one player questioned the offense's play calling and then quickly apologized. It's really premature to suggest they're imploding.

...at Maryland can make them a contender. It would be interesting to see whether that's the case with a good coach.

|2 days 9 hours ago||The Game is immune to the context of a given season||
The Game is not a means to an end - it is the end. Both teams will likely be as fired up as they can be. Yesterday is irrelevant.
|2 days 21 hours ago||I think he's counting rs juniors as seniors||
Michigan lists them that way, so it is confusing.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Agreed re: the first part||
I thought most of Michigan's penalties were self-inflicted wounds, though they were the victims of some bad calls too. Michigan is sloppier on the road.
|2 days 23 hours ago||Meh||
The young man wants to win. What he did wasn't ideal, but it's understandable that he'd be frustrated after that game - a game that likely killed his dreams for his final season. And he absolutely should enter the draft. He's the No. 1 RB on the class. You leave when that happens.
All of this being said, he should be suspended for next week's game. It's a moral imperative!

But I'm pretty sure I saw that he told a reporter he's okay.
|3 days 19 hours ago||It's second-tier relative to the staff's own priorities||
They went after Winston, Langford, Battle, and Bridges and missed. They went after Winston, Battle, and Langford for a lot longer and harder than they went after anyone they landed. Part of the class's ranking comes just from it's size.
I'm not throwing in the towel. I'm just saying what I see. I'm still going to root for the team - not that it matters, because what I do has no effect on the team at all.
|3 days 20 hours ago||I appreciate your spirit||
I lack it at the moment, but I appreciate it.
|3 days 20 hours ago||That seems like it might be an extreme overreaction...||
...but it also seems like the most likely outcome right now to me. I'm having a hard time imagining things turning around a great deal this year. And next year's recruits are a bunch of second-tier guys that the staff took after missing out on other players.
|3 days 21 hours ago||I'm finding it hard to see that as just a stumble or the first..||
...step on the path to something good. That looked like a 2010 RR defense trying to stop a good offense. The guys - especially the centers - often looked like they'd just met their teammates today. Watching them guard the paint was like watching a drugged flamingo try to fight a wild boar. It's really hard to imagine this team not getting absolutely crushed inside all year long. Max Bielfeldt would be the best center on this team by a wide margin.
|3 days 22 hours ago||Not a good half||
Team looks soft in every respect. Hopefully they'll grow.
|4 days 6 hours ago||Assume that most teasing you get is good-natured||
It won't all be, but you'll draw less negative attention when people see your "it's all in good fun and part of the rivalry" attitude. OSU fans are a little like bears - the less threatening you seem, the less threatening they're likely to be. Also, hit one in the nose with a stick only as a last and necessary resort to protect your physical safety.
|5 days 5 hours ago||I was really enjoying thinking of the OSU game as...||
...winnable. It doesn't feel that way anymore.
|5 days 23 hours ago||Like a lot of people in this thread...||
...I also don't like having to use new words or treat people with respect or distinguish between different situations. How come I can't just smash stuff? Where my country gone?
|6 days 26 min ago||PSU wins 31-24||
Lack of Glasgow and road sloppiness are the difference.
|6 days 5 hours ago||He had 4,300 total yards in 2013||
He's pretty darn good when he's healthy.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Let's do it!||
That would be fantastic. You don't stop adding top players. Look at what USC did under Carroll and what Saban's done at Alabama. Let Hill, O'Korn, and Co. battle it out.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Having a healthy Ryan Glasgow and/or Bryan Mone...||
...would be a good start. This has been an excellent season, and the program is very much on the rise. But Michigan did not look anything like a playoff team during the last month. They never did, really. And now one of their strengths - the DL - is down three guys, one of whom (Glasgow) was having an all-conference season. And Glasgow has been replaced with a guy who was very recently on offense.
I don't say this to knock the team. This season has been a lot of fun. The team deserves our admiration. But they are just not a top-four bunch right now.

He's MSU's coach. Of course he's going to say they deserve people's attention - and that appears to be where that back and forth was going.
|1 week 23 hours ago||Tight officiating||
I'm inclined to think that will often help Michigan as the season goes on given Beilein teams' typically low foul rate.
|1 week 1 day ago||Das ist gut||
Getting way ahead of things, next year could be an interesting combination of a loaded DL and a thin LB corp.
|1 week 1 day ago||Doom?||
What do you think the chances are of Michigan's front seven managing to pull things together without Glasgow? I fear death by RB against both PSU and OSU.
|1 week 2 days ago||I don't think that's fair||
They gave up a total of 38 points against Utah, BYU, and MSU. That's pretty good.
