|2 hours 20 min ago||You're kind of contradicting yourself||
Up top you said you don't count true freshmen as wr depth, which means DPJ and Collins wouldn't count as depth in 2017. You also said that anyone with less than 15 career catches doesn't count as depth either so until the wr's in the 2016 class pass the 15 career catch threshold, they wouldn't count as depth either.
|2 hours 46 min ago||To be honest||
if that's your criteria for WR depth, you're going to go into most years thinking UM has depth issues at WR.
|2 hours 51 min ago||1997 wr corps||
The wr's in 1997 aren't exactly going to go down as one of UM's better groups. The starters were Tai Streets and Russel Shaw and Streets battled injuries for a good part of the year. The combined stats in 1997 for Streets and Shaw was 43 receptions, 574 yds, 6 TDs.
|1 day 4 hours ago||OSU UFR||
I'd definitely be interested in seeing the UFR for the UM offense, especially in the first half and early part of the 3rd. They seemed like they were doing a decent job of moving the ball but would get bogged down near the red zone and settled for a couple FGs instead of matching OSU with TDs.
|2 days 21 hours ago||What?||
The problem with Hoke wasn't recruiting (in general terms). Hokes bigger issue was player development. The 2016 team that most of us think should make a run at the playoffs is mainly comprised of Hoke recruits.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Arkansas||
Maybe I'm not remember this correctly, but I thought Arkansas was added after ND gave Brandon the notice they were cancelling the series?
I'm guessing Brandon had to scramble to try and get the gaps in the schedule filled.
|5 days 5 hours ago||VTech||
Agree. Their last 4 seasons have gone: 7-6, 8-5, 7-6, 7-6 with the 7th win in the three 7 win seasons being a win in the bowl game (6-6 regular seasons). It'll be interesting to see whether the new coach can get them back to winning double digit wins on a regular basis.
|6 days 4 hours ago||Peterson||
Proven he can win without the talent of other teams - kind of. I'd venture to guess that Boise St had better talent than most of the teams in the WAC and Mountain West. I don't know if he'll ever really have that advantage in the Pac-12.
Boise did pull off some nice upsets but those were usually in bowl games where they had weeks to game plan, and the opponent might not have taken Boise that seriously. This isn't to say Peterson isn't a good coach, I think he is but it'll be interesting to see how he does at Washington.
|6 days 8 hours ago||Houston||
I'd guess with all the alumni from Texas, Baylor, TTech, TCU that the Big 12 already gets pretty good ratings in the Houston TV market. From a geography perspective Houston is a great fit, but I don't think adding Houston is going to cause a huge spike in the TV ratings in the Houston market.
|6 days 8 hours ago||Maryland||
I could be off but I thought Maryland's AD was in some pretty dire financial situations and the lure of the money that the Big Ten could provide was too good for them to pass up.

with the hot waitress at Hooters, you're not looking to spend a lifetime with her ...just a night or two rolling around in the sack.
|1 week 8 hours ago||As crazy as it sounds||
There's some running backs who played under Hoke who are in the NFL. I doubt Dunn has much of a shot at the NFL.
|1 week 1 day ago||Gallon more impressive college career||
Avants stats at UM:
169 rec, 2247 yds, 13 TDs
Gallon at UM:
173 rec, 2704 yds, 17 TDS
I wouldn't exactly that's far more impressive.
|1 week 1 day ago||Better players at the next level||
If what players did in the NFL is part of the criteria for the team, Avant should be one of the wr's.
|1 week 1 day ago||Joppru vs Butt||
How good of a blocker was Joppru? You criticize Butt a decent amount for his lack of blocking when it comes to the TE support in the running game.
|1 week 5 days ago||3 seconds in the lane||
I don't think this could be univerisally implented. In high school, middle school and even some of the lower levels of college (D3) you often times have a team with a player who is considerably taller than anyone on the other team. Take away the 3 second call and they'll just have that player camp under the basket.
|1 week 5 days ago||Also||
Simmon's play is assuming the best teams in the Western and Eastern Conference have relatively similiar records. If you have a team that leads one conference with 67 wins and another team leads the other conference with 55 wins, teams in the conference where the best team has 67 wins are going to get eliminated a lot sooner than teams in the conference where the leader has 55 wins.
|1 week 5 days ago||Travelling in the NCAA||
Maybe it's just me but I think the NCAA is getting a lot more lax in their enforcement of traveling.
|1 week 5 days ago||#9||
To me, in most cases this should be called as an intentional foul: 2 free throws and the team shooting the free throws gets to take the ball out of bounds after the second free throw. However, it's never called that way.
In almost all the cases of 'Hac a shank' it's pretty obvious the defender doing the fouling is doing it intentionally.
|1 week 5 days ago||To some extent yes, but||
my recollection of the fullback runs last year was that they were quick hitting plays. There really isn't any decision making process needed by the fullback until he gets past the dline. The fullback gets the handoff and hits a certain gap. If the gap is clogged (which it rarely was) then it's a minimal gain, if any. If the gap is open the fullback is quickly into the second level of the defense and from there, it's all about what the fullback can do on his own.
|1 week 6 days ago||This||
NY's Day is far and away the best date for the semi-finals. They found out NYE isn't that great of a date. If they want to have both games on the same day and don't do NYs Day, they are stuck with the early game starting during normal working hours for a large portion of the country. Other than that they could look at having the semi-finals on back to back evenings so they are both in prime time.

2006 was the year the regular season expanded to 12 games.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||What?||
U must hate March madness cause rarely do two #1 seeds meet in the final.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Kind of surprised||
Lindsey Vonn hasn't been mentioned. What she has done in women's skiing blows away any other female.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||In the running||
Michigan 67 - Illinois 65 (and no, that's not a basketball score).
|2 weeks 5 days ago||yeah but||
ND also has an open date on 9/7. Not sure why the game needed to be scheduled at the end of October when it could have in early September.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||His hands are absolutely tied||
How? No one was pointing a gun at his head saying he had to get ND back on the schedule in 2018 and 2019.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Oct. 26th??||
The schedule I'm looking at must be old because it shows UM playing Rutgers on the 26th with UM having open dates on 9/7, 9/14 and 9/28.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Some people||
might say that decent is a generous way to describe VaTech in the later years of Beamer's tenure.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Oline||
It'll be interesting. Outside of Newsome (or whoever starts as the 5th olineman), you have a bunch of 3 year starters. Couple that with what most of us think is a darn good oline coach, and you'd like to think they will at least be solid. In most years if you had 4 three yr starters on the oline, fans would be salivating at what could be an oline for the ages. It speaks volumes about how they've performed in the past that the oline is still considered a pretty big question mark heading into the fall.
