shortly after NY's Day? Harbaugh would have to know which guys weren't coming back possibly before a bowl game to get additional guys enrolled early.
Also, just because a guy declares he's going pro doesn't necessarily mean he's off scholarship does it?

Clemson was up 24-9 so when ND scored they made it 24-15. Brian's view is you for two there to know whether you will be down 24-17 and just need a TD and PAT or whether you'll be down 24-15 and need a TD and FG.
|10 hours 30 min ago||What makes it even more interesting||
at least to me, is LB is a spot where next year we might need contributions from true freshmen.
|11 hours 53 min ago||Yeah||
Darboh and Chesson seem to have the outside receiver positions locked down and the slot hasn't really been featured much in the offense the last few games.
|13 hours 17 min ago||Was listening to||
Mike and Mike on the way into work this work and they had Danny Kannel on. He made an interesting point. For most of last year OSU struggled a bit - OT win against PSU, 7 point win against Minny, tough game against IU and tight agaisnt a 5-7 UM tean until the 4th. Their 3 game run in the Big Ten Championship Game and the playoffs was very impressive, but that wasn't the OSU team that you saw on the field for most of the first 12 games of last year.
He also mentioned that losing Hermann to Houston is probably having an affect on the offense too.
|14 hours 16 min ago||Indiana||
kind of worries me. They actually have an offense (unlike a lot of teams on UM's schedule). Outside of OSU and MSU (although their offense has been up and down and they've had some injuries they still have a QB who if Cook has his A game can cause some problems), Indiana is the only other team left on the schedule that appears to have a legit offense. Not sure if the defense will get IU's offense completely bottled up. I think IU will get some points and due to that the offense will need to put some points on the board. Thankfully, IU has a pretty bad defense.

Gameday trys not to have the same teams featured at their location too much. LSU still has games against Bama and Ole Miss where Gameday could visit.
|1 day 16 hours ago||The four year thing||
without looking it up the only one I can think of that comes close to Sparty.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Part of the reason||
was the 'spread' offense that he runs was new to Division 1 football when he took over WVU. A lot of teams were taken by surprise with it. Now, tons of teams run some type of spread or incorporate spread elements into the offense. It's still tough to defend but it's not a novelty offense that you only saw once a year.
|3 days 11 hours ago||How does Northwestern have 3.5?||
By your scoring system I see:
Stanford is +.5 (small home win over a good team)
Eastern Illinois is 0 (large win at home over a not good team)
Duke is 1.0 (small road win over a good team)
Ball St is -.5 (small home win over a not good team)
That adds up to 1.0
|3 days 13 hours ago||Kind of agree but||
part of that will depend on how a big a lead UM has and when Harbaugh decides to shut down the offense.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Give it time||
If UM beats Sparty, OSU prices will start to soar.
|4 days 9 hours ago||Vision for a running back||
It's kind of hard to teach. They either have it or they don't. That isn't to say it can't get better but it's rare for a running back to make significant improvements in this area.
|4 days 10 hours ago||Speilman||
said the same thing during the game - that college offenses have become so spread oriented that when a defense has to face an 'old school' offense like Harbaugh it's tough because they don't see it very often.
|4 days 10 hours ago||Dawson||
Coulda swore I saw him on the field a good amount this game, but he's no where to be found in the charting.
|4 days 10 hours ago||Leinart||
Didn't he win the Heisman??
|4 days 13 hours ago||I don't know||
if they run it up, but with it being the big ten opener we might see a focused MSU team.
|4 days 15 hours ago||MGoBlog staff||
Can you create a separate blog where the only discusssions/threads will be about the weather forecast for games????
|5 days 8 hours ago||I don't||
I want Sparty ranked #2 coming into AA. It'll make the victory over them even sweeter.
|5 days 8 hours ago||Bo Jackson||
said the hardest hitting team he faced was Michigan.
|5 days 11 hours ago||The kicker is||
if airports are shutdown the football team could be stranded there. Unless they wanted to take a loooong bus ride home.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Head to head||
always comes first. In a two way tie, head to head will decide the winner. If it's a 3 way tie and one team beat the other two, I'm assuming the team that beat the other two wins the division.
If it's a 3 way tie where say UM beats MSU, MSU beats OSU and OSU beats UM not sure how the tiebreaker is decided.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Expectations||
If any expectations have changed, I think the floor that most people had for this team has changed. If the defense is as solid as we think most of the teams of the schedule (with the possible exception of MSU, OSU and IU) are going to have problems scoring unless they get help from special teams and UM's offense.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Lloyd/Debord||
I get what you're saying with that but UM's offense in the first half against BYU didn't look like a Lloyd/Debord offense. Second half, maybe yeah but they were sitting on a 31 pt lead and I'm guessing didn't feel like showing any more of the playbook.
|6 days 1 hour ago||Needs||
I think they are all kind of needs but considering how empty the depth chart is at LB after this year, it'd be nice to pull one or two stud linebackers before signing day.
|6 days 1 hour ago||OSU-UM||
would not be an 'official' visit and he would need to pay his way. The cost of an 'official' visit is picked up by the school.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Struggle in Big10 play||
Even if we are close to the ceiling, I'm not sure about how much struggle there will be. The defense is playing at a pretty high level and there are going to be a lot of teams in conference play who are going to struggle to score against UM - I put Maryland, Rutgers, PSU, Minny and NU in this group. In most of these games, barring turnovers and special team blunders, if the offense can score around 20 pts, it might be a comfortable W.
|1 week 9 hours ago||Yeah||
I remember in the spring/summer when people were wondering why we were only getting commits from 3 stars. A lot of the higher profile guys probably want(ed) to see what the product on the field was going to be like. If UM keeps winning, and especially in dominant fashion, this years class should fill in nicely and then look at in 2017.
|1 week 9 hours ago||To be fair||
don't you think that's the best way to defend UM's offense - make Rudock beat you with his arm?
I'd much rather make Rudock beat me by making intermediate to deep throws than sit back with deep safeties in a cover two and let UM pound the ball in the running game.

Colorado not good. ASU not that good and based upon this past weekend I question how good Arizona is.
Utah, USC and UCLA are good.
