The two interceptions sucked but Speight had Perry on a wide open out route on the second one. That's not a play calling issue. Clearly they got more conservative after the 2nd interceptions but they were also shutting down the OSU offense and were on the 1 looking to go up by 10 early.
They gained 310 yards with some clear mistakes, drops, and missed calls against the #4 team in terms of YPG. This is post game coulda shoulda woulda analysis.

Kenny Allen missed two field goals in each of the games where he punted 7 times. He hasn't missed a field goal otherwise. Small sample size caveats apply but those seem to be related and having the offense rolling is likely to help him out.

Maryland (5-3, 2-3 B1G)
Last week: Lost at Indiana, 42-36
Indiana (4-4, 2-3 B1G)
Last week: Lost to Maryland, 42-36
I'm fairly certain one of them had to win.

No. It's a WaPo article. The photo credit is an AP source, the article is written by Chuck Culpepper, a WaPo reporter.

In that case, the 1,000th win would be the championship game of their 5th straight undefeated season. I could live with that.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Fun Fact:||
According to the same wikipedia article, Rutgers is the all time leader in losses with 631.
EDIT: my mistake, they are just the losingest program listed on the winningest programs page. Indiana is actually the all time leader with 658.

Whoever is first gets priority and then it doesn't matter. There is only one other option after that.

Right. That's why when I buy something from a company with a trusted brand name the workers don't get any of the money.

1. As I read it, #1 picks the 2nd team, #2 picks the 3rd team, etc. That would likely preserve regional rivalries.
2. Those teams probably have a recruiting disadvantage as it currently stands.
3. Iowa would have finished tied for 6th last year (using just conference record) so they could still have had their season.
4. If some teams have 11 regular season games it would make sense that everyone has that many. You can still have out of conference games to ensure rivalry games occur.
5. Status quo.
6. Same as above, each team only picks one conference member.
7. It isn't a whole lot different than it is now. Players that choose the Alabamas and the Ohio States can be pretty sure they won't be relegated but they may not get much playing time. It's essentially the same thing as the guys who have a choice at being a starter for a MAC team or a special teams/back up at a power 5 school.

I'm willing to bet they aren't looking ahead to the big Rutgers matchup next week.

It's not a "loss", we lost. Acceptance is the fifth step. Regardless, this team is ahead of where anyone projected it to be at this point so take what will probably be a 9-3 season and build from there.

He hired Bob Diaco who's had one year with a tire fire of a roster. He tried to hire Narduzzi before that so he clearly is at least paying attention to up and coming coaches.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||The statistics show the balls||
The statistics show the balls were within a range at halftime that would indicate they were within a legal range at the beginning of the game. Unless you think the Patriots had a devious plan to overinflate the balls, get them tested, then deflate them to a lower, yet still legal, level, then it doesn't really make any sense.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||You figure worst case on||
You figure worst case on these kids is that they have the desire and drive but not quite the talent so they end up being productive depth players and starters by the end of their careers while also creating relationships and building pipelines into talent-rich places that Michigan hasn't really recruited that heavily in the past.

I don't think it's a bad call but it's definitely not as obvious as it would be now. Allow me to submit this 2006-2008 NFL best hits video as evidence.

I'm pretty sure he wasn't predicting that Bolden would blow up into a slightly more above average player.

Having an experienced back up is very nice for you and I. Spending another year putting in all the work and time required to be an experienced back up is a totally different thing.

Having been a big name in California football for the last 8 years, it makes sense to try and capitalize on that and build some pipelines in the state.

As long as the hackers stick to small things like identity theft or domestic abuse and stay away from the large issues like under inflated footballs the NFL is willing to let it slide.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||Bellomy hasn't shown much but||
Bellomy hasn't shown much but neither have any of the other QBs on the roster. Assuming that neither of the true freshmen win the starting job, you'd probably want them to redshirt which would leave Speight as the only other option. Losing one of a not that large or experienced group of unproven players doesn't seem like a good trade off for that scholarship, especially this late in the recruiting period.
