to play football, not to play trumpet

M and ND are the two most legendary programs. Need to play each other, if not every year, at least every few years.
|1 week 2 days ago||Except as a college student from Florida||
You get the cold winter and the hot weather if you go home for the summer. If was only based on weather, I think M would struggle.
But the opportunity to play for an elite coach at a legendary program is probably the real consideration.
|1 week 2 days ago||Did they even score this much in the 90s||
I remember some good goaltending with Shields and Turco that kept our opponents from scoring. Sure guys like Madden, Muckalt and Legg got a lot of goals but this might be better. Would like to see the stats.
|1 week 2 days ago||Aside from the D||
Is this M's best offense ever?
|1 week 2 days ago||I think it is unlimited||
There are limits on how many can dress for games and how many can travel but I think the overall roster is unlimited. Could be wrong.

Did you take her or not?

You need to pick something off the first album like Sex Farm or Big Bottom or Stonehenge.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Awesome win!||
While Kenpom predicted, I don't think Kenpom adjusts for not having Lavert. This is a big win!
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||MSU||
I have never been for football. Big stakes next year. Probably the first time we will be favored there since 2007.
As for the fans, well I went to the Cold War (hockey) at Spartan Stadium and the fans were pretty bad. We had a group of about 15 and one of the guys in our group ended up in a fight although some other MSU fans did help break it up. That was a night game which probably isn't the best idea in East Lansing.
I went to Columbus as a student and saw us win. Their fans are pretty bad. We didn't have a problem but saw a lot of issues.
By comparison, I have been to Notre Dame 4x and Illinois once and never had an issue. Even went to the Texas-OU game once and that seemed civil although neutral site.

Per the website, 68% of the time, this guy is right every time.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||just stop||
before it becomes the Big 20 and they add UCLA, Texas, Georgia Tech, Stanford, A&M and Arizona State.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||OSU had 7 drafted in 2014||
With 9 early departures plus whatever seniors, this could be double. I am not saying you guys will be bare, but the players will be missed.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||So they lose 9 early departures||
How many senior starters do they lose? How many will get drafted? OSU holds the record for 14 in a single draft (2004).

Or got rid of Brandon.
|5 weeks 9 hours ago||It's Iowa tradition to get blown out in the Rose Bowl||
I looked it up and they got blown out in 1990 (last appearance) and a couple times in the 80s. They did win it in 1959 during the Eisenhower administration.
I never really realized how bad Iowa is, they always seem like a tough opponent. But they really haven't won anything.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Hard to say||
The 9-3 this year could have been 10-2 (that thing that happened) but also could have been 7-5 (Minn and Indiana).
I think similar to Stanford, the team may achieve a similar record next year, partly due to schedule. At MSU, at Iowa and at OSU are all very difficult games, we will likely be underdogs. And against Wisconsin and Penn State at home we will likely be only small favorites. The rest of the schedule looks very manageable so 7-5 would be a doomsday scenario and 12-0 the dream season in my mind.
9-3 would be my prediction if Carr was still coaching so will be interesting to see if Harbaugh can take us to a better spot.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||But a lot of those years it was other teams that tripped us up.||
2007 was Wisconsin, 2003 was Iowa, 2000 Purdue and Northwestern.
Penn State was as good this year at 7-4 as some of those teams.
|11 weeks 7 hours ago||Only against Notre Dame.||
I don't think you ever want a rival to win unless it directly helps Michigan. Better to have Saban win another.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Terrible||
How do we get 13 penalties for 117 yards and they get 3 for 30 yards?
I just hope it is home field advantage and we get the extra 87 yards next week!
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Wow||
What a collapse. Gave up 3 goals in last 10 minutes.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Penalty shots seem pretty low success.||
Almost seems better to have a powerplay.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||How much time left?||
I don't have access.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Ugly is ok||
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I dont think it is an automatic to punt there||
You run a play and get the first down and you win. If not, short of a turnover/runback, MSU has to complete a 50+ yard pass. I have seen coaches go for it in those situations.
Now in our case, O'Neill has been so solid, I think it was the best option. He had punted 45 times previously this year for us and I dont think he ever dropped the ball. Harbaugh probably figured we would struggle to get a 1st down running the ball had more confidence in O'Neill punting than Rudock passing.
Hoke, on the other hand, had some struggles with special teams. He might have had less confidence there.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Hopefully if works out||
Wasnt this the same model that had us at near 20 point favorites against MSU though?
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Are you sure?||
Definitely not practiced enough
|15 weeks 6 days ago||although.....||
I thought the guy receiving the snap did ok given that he seemed totally surprised the ball was snapped and he was hit immediately. The "center" on the other hand, not only seemed to incorrectly snap the ball but he also declined to bother to block......
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Help me out a bit.||
Northwestern still has the #6 defense in SP after losing 38-0 and 40-10 back to back weeks? I know we scored 14 on defense and special teams against them so maybe that is part of it but sure doesnt seem like a #6 defense. Makes me wonder if the SP ranking is even worth looking at. It has us favored by 17 in a rematch against MSU as well.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||We really need MSU to lose twice but.....||
I guess it would be possible if they got really blown out by OSU and then we came back and really blew out OSU the next week.
I think it is pretty unlikely tht will happen but it is possible.
