Peppers at 10, which seems low.

I would guess that it wouldn't be difficult to work out a deal to get those teams and others like them into a conference like the Big 12 or the Pacific 12, or even the ACC. (Just please not the Big Ten)

OSU may be on the verge of a 5 year undefeated streak, but at the same time Urban was in a similar situation at UF where he recruited insanely well but as his coaching staff disintegrated and he had to keep bringing in new guys things began to fall apart. There's obviously no guarantee that anything like that will happen again but his team sure looked apathetic for the first 11 games of their season last year.

I felt that way too. I kind of liked it for personal reasons, but it was one of those things that I knew was so, so, so stupid from a business perspective that it made me angry just knowing how stupid it was on a larger scale.

Divide FBS into two divisions - Power 5 and non Power 5. It is so stupid that Eastern Michigan competes for the same championship as Michigan. Make a rule that you must play 11 games against an upper division (I.E. Power 5) opponent in order to be considered for the playoff or any January 1 bowl game.

Dawson reminds me of so many guys from the last two coaching staffs who were considered freakish athletes but we're raw and could never seem to reach their potential. That guy is a beast and I really hope Harbaugh can get him to produce.

This might sound crazy but when I saw him at Ford Field, it seemed like his body type/athleticism reminded me of Randy Moss. Obviously he has to work on a lot of skills to get anywhere near there but he has so much playmaking ability.

I'm really interested to see how Drake Harris and Mo Ways do backing up the starting WR's, because I think that will determine how the freshman receivers will be utilized. If Ways and Harris start looking like they can step into the starting roles next year I think we will see maybe 3 or 4 of the 5 freshmen move to DB, especially if we land two top 50 receivers in this recruiting class like many expect us to.

I can certainly understand why an outsider would think that Michigan's D line may take a step back this year, given the fact that people tend to assume that ANY freshman (even Gary) is completely ineffective until proven otherwise, and nobody believes practice hype at all until they see it on the field, even given Harbaugh's track record for not lying about how players are doing in practice.

I'm guessing that Harbaugh is playing mind games with him. I may be way off but O'Korn is an extremely confident guy, which is good, but maybe Harbaugh just wants to make sure he doesn't lose his edge and keeps battling. Rudock's problem when he came from Iowa was a lack of confidence, and once he won the job Harbaugh never backed down and stood by him, kept boosting him up as The Guy. In other words, Rudock needed his confidence reinforced and that's what Harbaugh did. It obviously paid off for him.

Harbaugh does not make playing time decisions based on fear of injury. I have a feeling that he would consider that playing scared.

Not that I think he didn't deserve to be fired, but if he'd gotten one more year I don't think we would have been saying that. Can you imagine Denard in his wnd year as a starter in that offense?

|3 days 5 hours ago||Something else to consider||
The run game really struggled last year, especially against better-than-average or above run defenses. There is a pattern here that hasn't been talked about much.
2005 SD YPC: 4.5
2006 SD YPC: 5.5
2007 Stanford YPC: 3.0
2008 Stanford YPC: 4.9
2011 SF YPC: 3.5
2012 SF YPC: 5.1
2015 UM YPC: 4.2
2016 UM YPC: ???
That is insanely good improvement in the run game from year 1 to year 2 at each of his coaching jobs. At this point it isn't a coincidence, and there is every reason to believe that this year has potential to see the most dramatic improvement, given 4 returning starters on the O line, and that there is a ton of depth at RB. I could easily see them reaching 6 YPC on the season.
(EDIT: I might add that 5.1 team YPC in the NFL is ridiculously good)
