I think Gameday will be in Ann Arbor for the Michigan/Michigan State showdown. Two undefeated, top 20 teams. Lots of storylines.
Alabama/South Carolina is on CBS, thus I doubt ESPN will make the trip to Columbia. They'll go to Ann Arbor for a game covered by the ESPN family of networks. Not to mention I think it's more of an intriguing matchup anyways. The winner of this game on Saturday has a legitimate shot to at least be a contender for the Big Ten title.

CBS has a contract with the SEC, it's pretty obvious they are biased towards the conference.
It's also generally the same way with ABC telecasts and their bias towards Big Ten/Boise/non-SEC teams.

Peterson's a great player, one of the best defensive players in college football, but he's always been arrogant like that.
He also has a knack for cramping up when the game's on the line.

I've been following both teams' recruitements of Hart.
Dee Hart will commit to Michigan.
Bama is getting Isaiah Crowell.
If anyone is a real threat to Michigan in the Hart sweepstakes, it's Auburn, not Alabama.

Dantonio is, and has always been, a dick.
Bielema did seem pretty arrogant at Media Day though...I think he needs to be humbled.
But Dantonio gets on my nerves the most.

I'm actually from Huntsville, AL (the city where the rapists are climbin' in your windows and snatchin' your people up). Not from the "projects" but the nice part of Huntsville. I'd have to say this is the most national exposure our city has had in a while...not necessarily for a good reason. But this is funny.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||I actually like how we looked||
I actually like how we looked in this game, too...aside from the turnovers.
We moved the ball very well but shot ourselves in the foot in the redzone. I thought the coaches really gave us a good chance to win...it was just a terrible series of mental breakdowns on the part of Tate Forcier (mostly). Defensively, we played the best game we had played all season long.
The Mich State game is about to air...thought we looked pretty ugly in that game aside from a great comeback at the end. Really get to see Tate's leadership potential shine through along with Stonum showcasing his playmaking ability. It was a heartbreaker. I hope we cream 'em this year.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||I could tolerate losing to||
I could tolerate losing to Conn (early in the season and OOC) Iowa, Penn State, Wisconsin (three good conference teams)
I cannot tolerate losing to Notre Dame (shut up, Kelly), Mich State (little brother) or Ohio State (no explanation necessary).
By the way, the SEC and the Big Ten have three bowl tie-ins now...Capital One, Outback, and the Gator Bowl. If UM goes 8-4 a bid to the Gator Bowl is a very likely scenario.
I would love to see Mich go to the Gator Bowl and beat the hell out of the Auburn Tigers.

Wow...I'm sure the players guilty are shaking in the boots at the thought of being on a short leash.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||Exactly...Hart is a much||
Exactly...Hart is a much better fit for the spread offense style of running. Saban wants big physical backs who can run out of pro style formations. Not to say that Hart can't do that, but his skills would be best utilized in an offense like RR's.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||Been following Dee Hart's||
Been following Dee Hart's recruitment for both teams (UM and UA) for a while now.
I think he ends up at Michigan. UM's been his frontrunner since his recruitment started and Alabama has their sights set on one or two other RB's so I think the odds of them getting Hart are not as good.
Hart's gonna be one great player for whoever he ends up with but I think he'll wear the maize and blue.

Saw this yesterday...his public speaking skills are brutal.

Justin Turner is another good choice. He has big size for a corner but natural athletic and ball skills that will make him a true force in the secondary. I'm excited to watch him play.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||Offense - Stephen Hopkins. We||
Offense - Stephen Hopkins. We need a consistent big back on this team to run in between the tackles again and Hopkins is that guy. Will really be great in short-yardage situations when we need to pound it out instead of having so much pressure on the QB's to make plays for first/touchdowns. He brings a totally different running style than what we get from V Smith and M Shaw.
Defense - Jonas Mouton. His experience and knowledge within the system will pay dividends this fall and I expect him to go from an average joe at LB to having a surprisingly good season. Not to mention that he'll be able to better utilize his great blitzing and pass-rushing skills. The 3-3-5 will really display his athleticism.

Feldman is a sharp fella. I agree with his assessment.

Give credit to John Calipari and Rick Stansbury for the SEC's dirty reputation.
It's good to see the Big Ten do things the right way while still maintaining status as an overall strong conference in terms of competition and talent. Outside of the Big East, it could be argued that the Big Ten is the best basketball conference in America.

I agree completely.
That's why in my other post I said the Heisman is a team award. Ingram would've never won it playing for MSU or any other school that finished with an average record.
Unfortunately, that's how the Heisman works in this day and age. You have to be on a team that is atop the rankings. Look at the finalists from last year. They were from Alabama, Texas, Florida and Nebraska. The first three all finished in the top five in the country while Nebraska wasn't far behind.
It's not a fair award, but Ingram certainly deserved consideration for the great season he had. I don't get the resentment towards him from some Mich fans. Can someone explain it to me? Is it because he's from Flint and left the state? Ingram actually grew up an MSU fan, not a U-M fan.

This is the second time you've made some claim of Alabama fan's opinions that differ COMPLETELY from my own opinion and most of the opinions of other Alabama fans I know. I don't know what Alabama fans you've spoken with, but Ingram had a terrific season last year and proved time and time again that it wasn't just his O-line that granted him success. More than half his all-purpose yards came after contact.

I'd like to know what Penn State QB plans on torching our "pitiful" secondary.

"MGoDC made an excellent point yesterday that his O-Line did 95% of the work for him. "
This is the most absolute BS (and frequently used) claim I've seen against Ingram's Heisman Trophy victory...I don't know how often you guys even watched Ingram last year, but from someone who watched every single carry he had, did you guys even realize he was among the nation's top leaders in YARDS AFTER CONTACT? O-line doesn't help him there, boys.
I will say the Heisman is a team award and thus playing for Alabama helped him considerably. The Heisman is turning into a joke these days because they don't truly try to find the "best college football player" , they just give it to the best player on the best team.
But if you honestly think that his O-line did 95% of the work, you're blindly following what the national media is saying instead of researching it for yourself. Ingram may or may not have been the best runner in the country, but he was certainly deserving of consideration and it's not because he "had a good offensive line".

Care to expand on that opinion? Other than the fact that he's from the state of Michigan so there might be some bitterness towards him?
|5 years 28 weeks ago||The whole deal of U-M players||
The whole deal of U-M players being "overpracticed" absolutely pales in comparison to the situations at USC, Florida, and all these other places where agents are getting involved with the players and the players receiving benefits. I honestly don't think U-M is gonna get hit hard at all because of this. The sad thing is, I really doubt that many of the marquee programs in college football abide by the maximum number of practice hours each week. I still haven't understood why Michigan was singled out for it while others weren't investigated for the same thing. I doubt U-M sees any real tough penalties.
