Of course it will be stopped. That gimmicky offense will never work in the rough and tumble big ten.

Fournette. A game breaker at RB would make this offense deadly I think. D is stacked enough I would try and improve the offense.

Lost some respect in my book. UM should come first to me. I don't even know the Harbaugh's.

Removal of freedoms should always be of concern even for something trivial.

Agree with this thought. But at the same time, even if it is small, it is a stand for justice and freedom. Politically and financially driven compared to China? Yes. But in the end, it's still a good thing. Small steps forward I suppose are still a good thing.

Well this tread is going to go down in flames. But alas, I feel I must contribute to that. I'll try and be respectful in my discourse.

Haven't tried it. Maybe I will. But I honestly don't really want to play with other people. I'm just not good enough at them. I liked to play the originals just whenever I wanted and not have to go anywhere for them. And do I really need another thing to get caught up in? Ah, I'll probably end up trying it.

But under Harbaugh, they actually show it on the field. With Hoke didn't he not even name captains the final year in an effort to fight the complacency and entitlement that has set in over the previous year's?

Feelings without any supporting evidence? It's like every political/social discussion I have with my parents.

Man, that's a rough way to end the 1st half. Germany was very much in control and had a few decent chances to get a goal. But they certainly showed their class. I think Germany gets an equalizer. Pretty interesting game so far
|2 weeks 4 days ago||This is like saying 'owning a||
This is like saying 'owning a home is a great thing' as a justification to pay 30% over market price for the home. Yes it is good to play ND, like it is to own a home, but only at the right price. And the deal Manuel struck was not the right price to most people here.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||But that's my whole point. 2||
But that's my whole point. 2 losses get you boned. Unless you're a 2 loss SEC team I imagine. Stanford was the best example of this in recent memory. TCU got boned because their conference (Texas) was stupid and forwent a conference championship team. Stanford played 9 conference games plus a conference championship game. Went on the road to a B1G school that won 10 games and lost. Their second loss was to Oregon when they actually had Vernon Adams. They played a really tough schedule, and played well, and had a lot of great results. And their reward? Left out of the playoff in favor of a worse MSU team who fluked into 3 wins.
So when everyone talks about SOS being important, I'm not hearing it. All that matters is that you don't lose more than 1 game and you win your conferece (unless your the SEC). That's apparently ALL that matters. We as fans like to see great games between great teams, but if you want your team to have the best chance of making the playoffs, just do what OSU does under Meyer: play no difficult non-cons and get your 1-2 feathers in the cap during the conference season. They learned their lesson duing the Tressel era when they scheduled truely difficult non-con games a few times that they didn't pull out and it cost them a shot at the championship early. To make the playoffs give yourself the easiest road possible.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I wanted ND back too, but||
I wanted ND back too, but only on terms that were favorable to UM. UM doesn't need to capituate to another school for a headline game. UM was having no trouble lining up other good non-conference games without ND.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Yep, my goal is for UM to||
Yep, my goal is for UM to make the playoffs. That's all anyone cares about. No one outside of UM and OSU cares that MSU got the weirdest and luckiest brakes to make the playoffs. Play 1-2 quality teams a year that can give you a feather in your cap, and make the rest of the games winnable. Then turn the season into a 2 game season where you can get hot for a short while and hoist a NC (see OSU 2014). If you want to accomplish running a marathon, you don't have to do the Pike's Peak marathon. You can go down to San Antonio where it's a net downhill. No one asks where you got that '26.2' sticker. All that matters is you completed the marathon to get it.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Exactly. Having Stanford||
Exactly. Having Stanford left out of the playoff this year in favor of Oklahoma and MSU just confirmed, again, that no matter what they say about schedule strength, wins and losses are all that matters no matter who it comes against. UM has enough big games and a conference championship they'll have to play that the only thing that matters is winning all your games.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I would. They're not||
I would. They're not terrible, have had some good seasons in recent memory without being elite. They certainly aren't Vandy or UK. Joined the SEC early 90's. I would say it's akin to playing PSU in the non-con. Cache in reputation with a much higher chance of actually winning than playing a dangerous or better coached team.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Seriously. Two ND games in a||
Seriously. Two ND games in a row, lose a high profile home game, make the playoff chances worse, lose money, and put ND in the middle of the season in 2019. I thought we were done getting fucked by our rival's AD's. After Red, I'm not sure how I feel about Manuel right now. This just pleads of desperation on UM's part. And UM is not desperate. Have one of the best coaches in the business and a decent non-con already lined up. It would not be difficult to make good non con games.

I would totally rather have a home game against Arky than away at ND. Love the ND game but don't need them enough to get the schedule boned. A home game against an real SEC school is great to boost a playoff resume and one UM is likely to win against Arky.

Yeah, screw that guy for realizing a team sport takes a while team to win. A real ball player would just play 1 v 5 and win championships just like Jordan did.

Goo god. UM did not get very lucky. PSU got lucky to have a score line that close. They barely got 200 total yards! Hack averaged like 4.5 yards attempt! That's crazy bad. UM had like 120 yards in penalties and two stupid turnovers themselves. It was a beatdown that was marred by sloppy play on UM parts.

I imagine NFL people are looking at him as a hybrid space player. But since that nomenclature doesn't fit into the current standard football lexicon, whoever will slap either a 'lb' or 'DB' label on him, but he's such a freak combined with modern defenses that he'll be used uniquely.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I mean he's really only an LB||
I mean he's really only an LB in name. He is a freak athlete, but this isn't an LB at all in the traditional sense. When he's at the combine, he'll be working out with DBs I think. Eric Berry still is probably the best NFL comparison I can think of.

I agree with this. Everything UM innovated was a way to win. Then somewhere UM went away from innovation to an attitude of 'keep everything the same as possible'. Get back to the tradition of forcing college football to change and keep up with Michigan.
