I get chronic migraines--5-10 a month. It's awful. I feel for the kid.

Not sure why Minnesota is a tossup. Yes they crushed us last year, but we crushed them the year before, and they are going to have a hard time replicating their offensive strategy of "Cobb, Cobb, Maxx" without Cobb and Maxx. Think that should be "lean to win."

Everyone knows Harbaugh is a weirdo who can rub some people the wrong way. Speculating on whether that could happen at Michigan is fair game, IMO--especially given recent history here.
OTOH, I think it's pretty obvious that this is a unique match, JH being Mr. Michigan Man Incarnate and all. But I felt that the article had enough positive commentary, including from Rich Rod (who basically said: "JH needs to do X to win at Michigan and he had great success doing X at Stanford."), that it wasn't just corny Skip Bayless-style contrarianism.

From now on I will only refer to the school in Palo Alto as "Samford."

"How to block," Kalis said. "Moving forward. Using hands and body to keep opposing defenses from sacking our quarterback. Stuff we would never really practice or have knowledge of before."

Clemson would be a good fit but I too doubt whether it would be a big enough draw to justify leaving Arizona. OTOH Clemson does probably afford a better shot at the playoff, the Pac-10 being much more grueling than the ACC. (At Clemson you'd have a much more realistic shot of that one loss or fewer season.)

|1 week 9 hours ago||The 11W excerpt||
Gardner doesn't exactly have a high opinion of Borges, does he. My opinion of Borges shifted a bit last year, when it became clear that, at the least, our offense's problems weren't *just* his fault. But that excerpt suggests that the players were frustrated with his playcalling all season, that he had it in him to call plays that were better suited to what the offense did and didn't have (i.e. good skill players, a QB who could run, and a bad OL), and that he was literally the only one (well, presumably Hoke too) who didn't realize that OSU was ready for the final play.

Harbaugh is an elite coach, but hard to say he's "better" than Urban Meyer, who has 3 national championships and is 38-3 at OSU. We may be able to say that eventually, but right now it's premature.

MSU will be good but I think #5 is too high. Remains to be seen how much of a loss Narduzzi is (and I suspect it's significant enough to cost them a game somewhere), while they lose all the skill players on offense (Cook aside). But at least it's a better team to overrate than ND, which some other outlets have in their top 5...

I'm guessing a lot of people who signed up just wanted to look at the pictures other people posted--unless I'm missing something about the registration process (which I may be). But if that's true, I'm not sure "cheating" is the best term to use here.

Best case scenario is obviously 12-0 then glory. Likelihood? Almost zero. The best *not crazytalk* scenario is a very lucky 11-1. Likelihood? Slim. The best *realistic* scenario is 10-2. Likelihood? Slim-to-moderate.

You must be traveling forward in time from the year 2007. Possibly earlier.

Best case is baffling--both games are at home. Yes, we will probably lose both, but it's not inconceivable that we'd win one. We almost beat OSU in 13, when, on paper, we had no business almost beating them

|3 weeks 9 hours ago||The fact that it's away is a||
The fact that it's away is a problem, and yes, our teams last year were fairly comparable. The wildcard here is how much of what we perceive of as our "talent" was shaped by poor player development under the old regime, and how much improvement we can see from the change in staff within one offseason. Along with luck, the main reason we won 5 more games in 2011 than 2010 was that the new defensive staff upgraded "bad" players (according to their 2010 performances) to "good" and "good" players to "really good." We will see if there is a similar kind of fix possible from 2014 to 2015, but it's not out of the realm of possibility to think that our "decent" OL might start to play up to the recruiting rankings of its individual members.

I mildly disappointed in Three and Out (good read overall but I felt he was a bit too close to his subjects to affect the necessary degree of critical distance). But I'm very excited to read this.

At which of those other places did he field a defense that gave up 458 points in a year?

I mean, it's not untrue, but it's also a convenient way for him to gloss over the many, serious mistakes he made here--imbalances in recruiting, basically anything related to defense, etc.

All attempts to rank universities are, in the end, flawed. You simply can't do it with any degree of accuracy.
