I think Speight has the basis to be a solid player. One we can rely on. His movement was surprisingly good. And by midseason, he became brave enough to launch throws with defenders in his face.
He needs to get better anticpating where his receivers will be. The deep ball was not there early in the season, before he got brave, nor late in the season when he was clearly injured.
I hope OKorn, and Peters give him a fierce challenge, but if he can throw to the spot instead of the man, he will win the job.

I'm so upset about this game. The lines both looked bad.

It may be largely about Jackson, but if he goes to another job, Fleck could move there. It could be a stop for Les, but I doubt it.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||throwing early||
If Speight can get the ball out early, and throw to spots, as he did in the 2nd game, he will do really well. When he was pressured by Colorado, he started throwing at the receivers, or was his arm really that badly hurt.

It also looked like he wasn't throwing to spots the way he did last week. It was more like the Hawaii game where he was following the receivers. Maybe it was because they got more pressure, maybe it was the fumble.

Meyer made him the #1 draft pick. Harbaugh made him a quarterback.

When was the last time Maryland won that big? Sorry. No one knows the answer to that question.

I know we need to see how they play the rest of the way, but does an undefeated Houston get in the CFP over an one loss PAC12 ACC or B1G team? Clearly they would over a BIG 12 team. And not a SEC team. (Don't make me laugh.)

I don't know this architecture firm, but they seem to have only one idea (and honestly, I'm not a fan.)
The design is almost exactly the same as their proposal for the Chargers. (Though to be fair, it was meant to be for both the Chargers and the Raiders in Los Angeles.)

I went to school at UM from 1987 to 1991. I watched 4 opening season losses in a row to ND. Back then, one loss = no natty. It still influences the way I think about the schedule.
And yes, playing all 3 rivals away is "stoopid."
|35 weeks 4 days ago||I recall reading a few years||
I recall reading a few years ago that state governments have been reducing university funding for years. This was especially true after the economic crisis in 2008. The result is that the schools had no choice but to raise tuition. (Recall the older discussions of LSU potential losing their football program? Sorry about the implication of politics.)

I just love how they talk up how exciting a game was and then show 10 seconds of highlights, and usually only the best plays by the most famous player on either team, whether that team won or lost.

Since Marquette is in the final, it'll get my vote. My 74 year old uncle still plays hockey in Harrisburg, so I was pulling for Twin Ponds

When JB was brought to A2, wasn't he more know for his 1-3-1 defense than any offensive scheme?

And Sparty gets an easy road...again. And they get to play in St.L and Chicago. They may feel disrespected, but I bet they love this.
|50 weeks 2 days ago||jaded?||
I really like JB. We've seen what he can accomplish with the right players. That said, I can't say this team under or over acheived. It's probably what we all expected if we were honest with ourselves.
What's frustrating is to watch a team like Butler or Xavier or Gonzaga or Wichita State turn a one year wonder into years of success. Perhaps I'm a little jaded, but when I was in school, we won a national championship in basketball. We were top five every year. Then there were a few good years after that, if you all recall. I know we had down times, but Michigan has a storied basketball history.
So, what are we missing here? What is wrong? Is it bad recruiting or bad defensive coaching or something else? These problems can be fixed and they have to be fixed. (TCU football used to have a terrible offense, after all.) Next year will not be great either, but the year after, there has to be a step up. I really do not want to push out JB, but I recall someone saying something about a meritocracy. The crazy thing is, when I started writing this, I wanted to say that there's no way we should get rid of our coach. He should stay as long as he likes.
