might want to have a conversation with you.
|4 days 11 hours ago||WR speed||
By no means am I saying that we have burners at the wr position but I think we might be underestimating how fast they might be. Only on the rare occassion did UM attempt a pass more then 30-40 yds down the field the last couple of years. If they did, Gardner was usually planted on the turf or scrambling out of the pocket by the time the receiver got 30-40yds down the field.
Not sure if we're going to see many passes thrown that distance if Ruddock is the QB this year. My memory might be off but from Brian's UFR's, it seems Ruddock is pretty good at the short to intermediate throws but his arm strength might not be great for the deep, deep ball.
While I think Harbaugh will get some burners at the wideouts my bigger concern with the wr's this year is route running and quickness. The precision of the route running and ability to make a quick change of direction during the route will be critical this year.

Recruiting the state of Texas is much easier for Nebraska when you can tell recruits they'll probably be playing in the state of Texas 2-3 times a year when they were in the Big 12.
|5 days 7 hours ago||I get what you're saying||
and taking a lot of the other variables out - he might only have 3 years of eligibility left compared to a new recruit having 4, but Williams would also have 1 year under his belt with the UM coaching staff plus he'd be 2 years older then a true frosh, so hopefully physically more mature and ready to play the dline.

|6 days 14 hours ago||Moeller||
After back to back 8-4 seasons in '93 and '94 there was some discontent starting to surface with Moeller.
|6 days 16 hours ago||True except for 2013||
2013 was one of the most prolific passing offenses in UM history.
|1 week 8 hours ago||highly regarded running backs||
Drake Johnson didn't seem to have that much trouble getting past the line of scrimmage when he got opportunities to play. Did the oline just magically improve once Drake started getting carries or was Drake the only running back that was able to find the holes the oline was creating?
Like I mentioned above, I'm not saying the oline was a strength but the running game seemed to get better once Johnson started getting carries.
|1 week 8 hours ago||Running backs||
The running game seemed to have pretty good success once Drake started seeing a lot of time. Heck, I think even Smith ran for 100+ against Northwestern.
By no means am I saying the oline was a strength but by the end of the year I didn't see it as a very big weakness. It would have been nice to see what the line looked like all with Drake as the running back. I'm probably one of the few on this board that doesn't think that highly of either Green or Smith (for various reasons).
|1 week 11 hours ago||Sumlin||
Kind of agree. He's been all offense and no defense pretty much at both places he's been head coach. He got Chavis to leave LSU to be the DC at A&M so we'll see if Chavis can get the D turned around.

without reading the link the UM AD just has really good accountants and they figured out how to show the AD supposedly has a deficit.
|1 week 3 days ago||Since 1980||
until the advent of the Big Ten Conference Championship game (a span of 31 years) there were only 7 years where OSU or UM didn't win or at least share the Big Ten Title. While other programs definitely got better and weren't the dormats they were in the 70's, the conference was still dominated by UM and OSU, just not to the extent it was in the 70's.
Big Ten titles won between 1980 and 2010:
13 - UM and OSU
5 - Iowa
4 - Wisky
3 - Illinois, MSU, PSU, NU
1 - Purdue
0 - IU, Minny
UM and OSU combined won/shared the conference title more times then all the others combined.
|1 week 3 days ago||To be fair||
has Tiger ever come from behind on Sunday to win a major? That isn't to say he's never not been in the lead on Sunday in a major he's won, but for the 12 majors he's won, he's been the 54 hole leader in all of them, no?
His loss to YE Yang in the PGA I think was the first time he didn't win a major after he held the 54 hole lead.
|1 week 3 days ago||Hitting out of rough||
In addition to the recovery time, the increased strength to hit out of the rough would help. It's similiar to baseball. The HGH/roids isn't going to make your swing better but instead of a deep fly ball to left center being an out, it's now a home run. In golf f you can get an extra 15-20 yds out of your swing that's huge.
|1 week 5 days ago||True but||
You're exactly right that every program 'fills in' their class with 3 and 2 star players. The top programs in recruiting though usually load up on 4 and 5 star players.
Below are four of the better programs year in and year out with recruiting. Shown are the number of 4 and 5 stars and the total number of recruits over the last 4 years:
Alabama: 17/26, 17/25, 19/26, 19/24.
OSU: 16/25, 18/24, 16/23, 14/27
USC: 13/15, 12/12, 11/19, 21/26
FSU: 13/19, 11/21, 16/28, 15/20
|1 week 5 days ago||Periodic overtime||
I'm assuming by periodic overtime they mean constant overtime.
|1 week 6 days ago||Considering||
the second longest current streak by an nhl team making the playoffs is 9, I'd say what the Red Wings are doing is pretty impressive.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Larry Coker||
wasn't all that great. Butch Davis got that program turned around. Coker just got lucky he was promoted when Davis left. Coker's record at Miami went: 12-0, 12-1, 11-2, 9-3, 9-3, 7-6.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Recruiting Rankings||
You can continue on all you want, but the teams that have in the BCS title games and are consistently in the Top 5/Top 10 in the country year in and year out are the teams that are also at the top of the recruiting rankings.
Yeah, not every 5 star pans out and yeah, some 3 stars turn into studs. In this day and age though if you want to be a consistent player in the NC conversation you need to have damn good recruiting classes.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||No doubt but||
Harbaugh has won everywhere he's been.
San Diego: 7-4, 11-1, 11-1. In 2005, Harbaugh's second year, San Diego won a conference title in football for the first time ever. The football program started in 1956.
Stanford: 4-8, 5-7, 8-5, 12-1. Stanford had gone 16-40 the 5 seasons before Harbaugh arrived.
SF: 13-3, 11-4-1, 12-4, 8-8. San Francisco hadn't had a winning record in the 8 previous seasons before Harbaugh arrived.
Is he guaranteed to take UM to the promised land? No. But if you look at his track record, all he has done is win at every place he's been head coach.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||What's your problem??||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Basketball players||
at least imo probably have it the hardest. At least with football most games are on Saturday and you're missing very little class time. With basketball you have games all 7 days of the week and due to TV they might have a game that isn't starting until 9pm eastern time. A weekday away game at say PSU means they are missing class the day of the game and probably not getting back to their dorm/apartment until the sun is almost coming up the next day. On top of that the amount of class time the players miss due to conference tourneys, the NCAA tourney and possible early season tourneys is huge.

Bill Russell: 11-1
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks||
Wasn't sure. Regardless, as of now the roster in 2016 for running backs is heavily tilted with upperclassmen.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Roll Man Offense||
That chart could be fairly misleading. I'd much rather see a chart that encompasses the results of all the pick and rolls each big man was involved with, not just how much the man setting the pick scored.
How many turnovers did the big men have off the pick roll? How many times did the player with the ball score off a jump shot or drive to the hoop? How many times did the pick and roll work good enough that an off ball defender had to help which freed up his man for an open jump shot.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||We need'em||
In 2016 Smith and Green will be Seniors and Johnson, who is coming off a second knee injury, a junior. Issac is listed on Mgoblue as a Junior for 2015.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||yeah||
As bad as Schilling was he at least had some good commentary at this point. He mentioned if you get the out at first, with first base open you can either pitch around or intentionally walk the Player of the Year from Florida.
To many bad plays in the field and no timely hitting for UM sealed their doom in this game.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Also, due to gender differences||
I would think that sliding head first for a girl could be painful to the chest area due to their breasts and that the breasts might add extra friction to slow them down on a head first slide.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, agree especially||
since if they throw home to get Romero, even if she's out you still have 1st and 2nd with only one out. Now a sac fly, past ball, infield hit deep in a hole doesn't score the runner from second like it would have Romero if she was at 3rd, but a base hit still probably scores from the runner from 2nd.
