|1 day 6 hours ago||It took you||
2.5 quarters to realize what the outcome was going to be?
You must have been having flashbacks to the 1999 Illinois game.
|2 days 7 hours ago||While true||
That Wisky is similiar in style to UM, Wisky didn't exactly dominate the MSU game as the final score would suggest. MSU turnovers fueled the 24 pt margin of victory. MSU actually out gained Wisky and held Wisky to only 122 yds rushing at 3 yds/carry.
Now that game was a month ago though and the wheels seem to be coming off the Sparta train. Ruining UM's chance at an undefeated season is about all MSU has to play for now. As long as UM doesn't have a rash of turnovers and/or give up some big plays on special teams they should win. I'm expecting a dogfight early with UM pulling away in the second half.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Houston's chances of winning AAC||
Are on life support. They are 2 games behind Navy the loss column and Navy holds the tiebreaker in since they beat Houston. Navy needs to lose 3 of their last 4 conference games for the Cougars to have a chance at the division title.
|3 days 6 hours ago||It kind of is||
When RR was winning Big East titles the Big East was essentially a mid major. Miami and Vatech had left for the ACC.
|3 days 6 hours ago||Oregon||
Will give them a challenge in the injury department. Oregon is missing 2 d linemen, 2 linebackers, an offensive lineman, wrote and rb.
|4 days 4 hours ago||You know your defense is a wrecking ball||
When the opponent could play their first or second string QBs who are nursing injuries but might not because it wouldn't change the outcome of the game but could damage their ability to win a game later in the year. Instead they might send their 3rd string QB out as a sacrificial lamb.
|4 days 6 hours ago||Yeah||
It's kind of funny that in a 78-0 win, the defense grades out at an all time level but the offense seemed to only grade out okay.
|4 days 10 hours ago||Is it really that good?||
UNC had 462 total yds. 197 yds rushing at 5.3 yds/carry. They gave up 48 pts to UNC and UNC also missed a 42 yd FG.
WMU had 437 total yds. 287 yds rushing at 5.3 yds/carry. They gave up 34 pts to WMU and WMU missed a 43 yd FG.
Nebraska had 423 total yds. 203 yds rushing at 4.1 yds/carry. They gave up 31 pts to Nebraska and the Huskers had one possession where they fumbled on the Illini 12.
Purdue had 459 total yds. 231 rushing yds at 5.6 yds/carry. They gave up 31 pts to Purdue in regulation.
Michigan's offense should smash Illinois. Any team with a pulse (and even Purdue) has rushed for 200 yds with a good yds/carry against Illinois.
|5 days 1 hour ago||Georgia||
Had a miracle run to the final four in either 83 or 84, but yeah, until the mid to late 80s Kentucky was the only consistently good program in the SEC.
|5 days 1 hour ago||This||
I find that true with almost all pro sports - the intensity is so much higher in the playoffs. I hardly watch much of any regular season for a pro sport but I'll watch some of the playoffs.
|5 days 1 hour ago||I wanna find||
The closest brick wall and run through it!!
|5 days 3 hours ago||Was thinking the same thing||
Chesson needs to have a BIG second half of the season if we're going to see him on All-American teams.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Yeah||
The OP had Florida and Michigan as the only teams to do in it the last 30 yrs. OSU and MSU are the only other teams I can think of that have done it no matter how far you go back.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Heck||
You can go back more than 30 years and the list of teams that have won both an NCAA title in football and basketball isn't going to get much longer.
OSU and MSU have won both. Who else???
|5 days 5 hours ago||Don't count on Speight||
making the Rudock leap. Rudock had almost two years of starting experience under his belt when he came to UM. Rudock's leap most likely happened because he finely became comfortable with the offense, plays and wr's.
Speight doesn't have the experience Rudock had. It doesn't mean Speight isn't going to improve during the second half of the season, but I'm not expecting him to make a Rudock type leap.
|5 days 5 hours ago||'Save it' side||
With Harbaugh I don't worry about saving stuff. This isn't the old days where UM was going to run 4-5 different running plays and 4-5 different passing plays all game. Harbaugh seems to have a different game plan each week. Now granted the core plays are a part of each game plan, but you see comments from opponents about how Michigan was running plays they had never seen on film.
|5 days 5 hours ago||No Florida??||
I realize most of Florida's accomplishments are in the last 25 yrs, but they have a pretty impressive resume over the last 25 yrs.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Yeah||
Was watching the baseball game and for some reason when I saw Perry my brain started thinking Evans.
|5 days 23 hours ago||Looks like Drake||
If the rumors about Drake Johnson being healthy are true, he has a much better chance of getting some carries.
|6 days 6 hours ago||The committee's poll||
The committee hasn't done a single poll yet. Their rankings don't come out until at least next week.
AP, Coaches, etc. don't really mean anything anymore.
|6 days 6 hours ago||So when||
OSU's gimmick offense scored 42 points against Alabama in the semi's a couple years ago, it was only because Alabama had inferior talent?
|6 days 8 hours ago||The funny thing is||
FEI doesn't like Michigan's schedule so far. FEI has UM with the 77th hardest schedule played so far (Rutgers and Hawaii are massive hits).
FEI has Bama with the 30th hardest schedule, Clemson 27, A&M 37, OSU 59 and Washington 122.
|6 days 9 hours ago||Kaepernick and Smith||
Not sure I'd say Harbaugh 'benched' Smith. Smith got hurt and was out for a while. Kaepernick played well enough that Smith lost his job.
When you say Harbaugh benched Smith, I get the vision that Harbaugh replaced a healthy Smith with Kaepernick.
|6 days 20 hours ago||He didn't exactly bomb with NE||
Problem was he took over NE the year after Parcells took the Pats to the Super Bowl. Carroll went 10-6 (first place in AFC East and went 1-1 in the playoffs), 9-7 (wildcard, lost wildcard game) and then 8-8.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Awful second half||
Michigan just dominated the first half. They had the ball 4 times and went on 70+ yd td drives each time. One of the best 30 minutes I've ever seen from a UM offense. Second half was a different story.
Purdue kicker actually missed a go ahead FG with something like 2 minutes left. UM ran the ball on first and second down to burn all of Purdue's timeouts. It was 3rd and decent yardage with two options - run the ball and hope for a first down, if not, punt and not leave much time on the clock for Purdue to get in FG range. The other was pass and if you get a first down game over. UM called a pass play...incomplete. Purdue got the ball after the punt and went down the field and kicked the winning fg.
|1 week 5 hours ago||At least||
give us the mid-season defensive report before you put dratageddon up there.
|1 week 7 hours ago||Yeah and||
at least according to FEI, UCF's defense is ranked higher than PSU. FEI has UCF's defense at 29 and PSU at 43.
|1 week 8 hours ago||I'll preface this||
by saying I wasn't in the hire Mullen camp. To Mullen's credit though Prescott wasn't exactly an 'elite' recruit. On 247 he was a 3 star and ranked around the 600th best recruit.
|1 week 1 day ago||You wouldn't need to be nervous||
Air Force and Georgia Tech have been running those type of offenses for a while. They are decent programs who cobble together a real good year every now and then. While it is an offense you don't see every day, if it's in your division you see it every year.
|1 week 1 day ago||Why?||
There's only two undefeated teams in Pac-12 play; Washington and WSU. Every other team has at least one conference loss and WSU's schedule is pretty favorable - ASU, Oregon St, Arizona, Cal, Colorado and Washington. Every team other than Washington and Utah already has 2 overall losses.
It's going to be interesting to see how things shake out in the Pac-12. If Washington goes 13-0, the next best overall record in the Pac-12 will probably have at least 3 losses.
