That's exactly what I thought too. 10 scholarships in 10 years or something. And when you can oversign to your heart's delight, well...

["Don't pay attention to it. I didn't even know that," Michigan junior tight end Ian Bunting said of the national championship odds]
Is this not a perfect example of the Observer Effect?

I would be surprised if Herman made a move that is arguably lateral or at the very least a marginal step up when he is almost certainly going to be the most hotly pursued coaching candidate in a matter of a couple years at most.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Obviously MSU is a rival, and||
Obviously MSU is a rival, and much more so now than before. BUT I have said before and I still believe that our interest in the rivalry purely comes back to the fact that MSU fans DO NOT SHUT UP and are, for the most part, some of the most delusional human beings on the CFB planet. For example, many of them believe that Michigan will never be a national powerhouse again. In fact, many of them believe Michigan never WAS a national powerhouse, but it was simply a media conspiracy to make them look like one for many decades. These are the people who believed Harbaugh hated Michigan and would never come back to coach here, and then when he did they now state that he is not a very good coach anyway so it really doesn't matter. And don't even get me started on what they say about last year's game.
The point is, if MSU fans were normal human beings, then we would probably think of MSU the same way we think of a team like Purdue or Northwestern. Yes, they are on a good run and I will readily acknowledge that, but so much of our rival-hatred for them is derived from their fans' attitudes.

I suppose the only real drawback is that you run the risk of having a very boring September- like this year for example. You have to take the good with the bad, I guess. I mean, we basically have one interesting game (Wisconsin) until we play MSU on October 29th.
|2 days 9 hours ago||I agree. I actually get kind||
I agree. I actually get kind of bored playing them every year, especially since lately they have not been the power they had been in the 90's. I would rather see us play against a team we don't normally get to play. I might be weird but I was actually a little relieved when they announced that the rivalry had been suspended.

I run a business with my wife and I can tell you there have been multiple attempted strangling incidents.

I am sure there will be all kinds of facetious answers but in an alternate life I always saw myself as a travel writer for a company like Fodor's or something. I had wanted to be a journalist when I was in college but was worried about the job market as well as the pay. Sadly I know better now, that it is better to pursue your passion than just getting a job.

I would have never seen that if you hadn't pointed it out, and I feel like it deserves more attention. Not because of the expected douchiness of the PSU fan but because he clearly is invested in finding ways to motivate himself. I like it.

He reminds me a lot of Brandon Minor. He's one I always wish we could have seen more of because he could have been a very special back in recent Michigan lore but his injuries abbreviated his career. To date Deveon has had a eerily similar career complete with the injuries. If he has a healthy season this may be our opportunity to see what Minor COULD have been.

I remember that. It was the summer before my freshman year of college. I lucked out because I was living at my parents house and somehow our power was out for only about 18 hours. My older brothers were both in town and had gone out drinking the night before and used my dad's car, which he had specifically told them to fill up with gas when they were done. Instead they let it run down to almost empty and then the gas stations were out of commission for three days. It was really fun seeing my dad get that pissed at my brothers.

I suppose if Michigan were my rival and I desperately wanted to rationalize any hope that they are not quite there yet I would probably say these same things while simultaneously ignoring Harbaugh's track record of developing offenses and particularly his run game.

But you probably already knew that.

I feel kinda bad saying this but I had already forgotten about him.

I guess I would rather see us play a team we don't usually get to see than play a 9th game against Purdue or something. I would love it if we scheduled a team like Oklahoma, Florida State, or any number of high profile teams we have hardly ever played on a yearly basis, but unfortunately CFB isn't really set up well enough for that to work out either.

I assume the price is driven by the venue and not by Michigan? If the AD is simply using a standard markup based on however much they had to pay for the tickets, it could be that Rutgers is charging more because this is their biggest home game of the year (next biggest would be Iowa and PSU). I'm not sure how these agreements work though.
