One thing to realize is UW- Whitewater is a pretty big school for D3 and should really play in D2 but the UW system has all of its schools outside of a couple that are D1 playing in D3. Still impressive to go 100-6 but its not a completely level playing field.

That's what everyone was saying to starting Morris over Gardner. "Well he can't be a worse QB than Gardner so lets get him some experience". That worked out pretty well didn't it?

What good is $10k once you are out of eligibility if you are going to be a high NFL pick. An agent will hook you up with loans based on your future NFL contract the minute you are out of the NCAA. You want that cash to spend or to help your family while you are playing, afterwards 10k isn't as valuable.
|5 days 21 hours ago||To outside observers, losing||
To outside observers, losing 3 players to the NBA plus the only 2 bigs with starting experience on the roster while only bringing in 1 top 50 recruit is going to leave a lot of questions about the team. OSU brought in a very good class, Izzo has an unjustified reputation at this point, and Neb is returning almost everyone from a pretty good team. Also, the teams ranked 2-5 are not seperated by much, there is a bigger jump between 1-2 and 5-6 than there is between teams 2-5.
I also think people here are also overestimating Beilein a bit, the sample size is too small to have as much confidence as people have in him turning so many players into stars. People tend to forget the players who didn't turn into stars like Smot and a few others I can't even think of at the moment.

Can someone explain to me how the current president of the university having the highest paid salary in the university's history is something to be upset about? Shouldn't the current president make more than the previous president? And didn't MSC turn down a raise that would have doubled her salary?
Administration salaries are definitely an issue, but it's more than just the amount the top person makes. It's the positions added and the raises around the entire administration that are driving costs up, not just the big number the guy at the top makes.

If it were 2 months ago I would have said 30-40%, but now I doubt it will be that many.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||The few good players who did||
The few good players who did commit or were close to committing in the 2011 class did go elsewhere, but there were a lot of kids who never really gave Michigan a shot due to the constant negativity surrounding the program. The lack of quality OL recruiting in that OL class certainly wasn't by choice and the huge amount of attrition is evidence that they had to go after a lot of risky players who you might take a few of but not a whole class of.

By the end of the 3rd year the atmosphere around Michigan was so toxic he really had to go. I wanted him to succeed more than anyone but it wasn't going to work.

I was one of RRs biggest supporters and desperately wanted him to succeed but by the end of 2010 it was clear he had to go. The atmosphere was too negative, recruiting was taking a hit, and it just wasn't going to work. Had a feeling he would succeed at Arizona and hopefully those inside the AD realize when a new coach is brought in who isn't a Michigan man that you get much further by supporting him than trying to undermine him.

If you leave off the bbq sauce these qualify as low carb.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||My issue with boycotting the||
My issue with boycotting the Maryland game is that it's senior day and it seems everyone here is on the side of the players so why punish Devin Gardner, Frank Clark and the rest of the players who have given their all for the last 4-5 years? Why make their last game one with 80k people in the stands? Additionally, the PSU game will get a lot more viewers and bring a ton more attention to the boycott, plus Brandon is the one who has done so much promotion for the night games so it would be fitting to ruin his last UTL.

The only reason the NFL wants to improve their reputation with women is so they can get women to spend money on tickets and apparel. They brought this whole thing on themselves by trying to draw in women and families while not actually adressing the conduct of their players.

Letting meat come to room temperature before cooking actually isn't necessary and 45 minutes barely does anything.
Some great points about cooking steak in this article including the practice of letting it come to room temperature.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||While that is the restaurant||
While that is the restaurant method, it actually works better to take it low and slow to raise the internal temp to about 130 for med rare and then blast the outside. It gives more control and a thinner band of well done meat around the edge. A lot of restaurant cooking methods work well for the restaurant setting of getting food out fast and consistent but aren't the optimal way to do things. People have been following what restaurants do for years because "they are the professionals" but that's like imitating NFL plays in touch football where you can't run over someone or break a tackle.

Was glad to see Chesson out on the field after he got drilling trying to make a catch. He was hobling off the field after that and it looked like it could be a rib injury.

Weren't Spence's parents going to sue the school after the first failed drug test and suspension? Or was that a different OSU player? Thought they were adamant that he didn't do drugs.

Can we please wait until Morris has more TDs than interceptions to suggest he should start? What about at least 1 TD?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||How about a year long||
How about a year long suspenion without pay? I'm sure some charities could do great things with that $44 million check.

Would be amazing to send this series out with another 38-0 blow out like 2003 or 2007, but I would just be happy to have a comfortable win where the game isn't much in question after halftime.

Just don't look for him to lead the team in interceptions.

ND also lacks all the stars of that defense. Outside of Day and Smith, their defense isn't intimidating at all. If those two can have their impact limited via offensive scheme I think Michigan has a good shot.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I find it funny how people||
I find it funny how people here love Desmond Howard for always showing his Michigan bias but hate former OSU players who do the same for OSU. If you think all ESPN broadcasters should not show bias, that's fine but don't be a hypocrite. People make way too big a deal about former OSU players calling Michigan games. The alma maters of the commentators doesn't even cross the minds of the people setting up the schedules for the weeks games and it's not a huge deal.

Probably because with all the conference networks out there, sports broadcasting talent is getting thin.

I believe it rotates between the former BCS bowls, but I don't know what the criteria are for Rose Bowl selections when they don't have one of the playoff games.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Don't believe so, because||
Don't believe so, because this staff has done such a good job of keeping players in the program and the 2012 and 2013 classes were huge. If check the depth chart by class you'll see that there are only 16 juniors on the team which will keep the class from being huge. Should probably hit 20 though because you always have some departures.

Nice surprise, for some reason I never felt confident about him committing to Michigan.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||First, Peppers may be a||
First, Peppers may be a safety as well. Second, they took 6 DBs the class before and only 2 LBs. Third, while they often play only 2 LBs they like to rotate more at LB and they also need the ability to play 3 for teams like Iowa, Wisconsin, and MSU. Would have been nice if they could have taken Nicholson, but if these previews have shown anything, it's that there is very good depth at CB and Safety and there are at least 2 good db recruits committed in 2015.

Eli Apple was also a top 50 player and Webb was top 35, so Conley beating them out implies he's at least decent.

And Gareon Connely who is possibly their starting CB this year or their #3 CB.
