Agree with other poster on 1 playoff win in 57 years. Plus their last road playoff win was 12/22/57 at San Francisco. Yeah, Eisenhower was President.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||A 3.1 is pretty poor compared to M admission standards||
I would think he would almost certainly not get in w with a 3.1 unless he had real high test scores or some other unique talent. As a datapoint, my son is currently deferred at M with a 3.8 and a 32 ACT.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||That is really weird to think about||
Hoke never faced Wisconsin and Andersen never faced Michigan. While, both short careers, seems a little crazy. But the 9 game schedule should help.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Out of curiousity||
Where is the shady part of Northville? I grew up mainly there and my parents still live there. I cant really think of anywhere I would be uncomfortable.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||As a Northville High grad||
Glad to see us high on the list! And ahead of rival Novi. Maybe I should pull out my varsity jacket, Al Bundy style.....
|9 weeks 1 day ago||this good||
I would say winning the Sugar Bowl in Hoke's first season and beating OSU in 2003 to capture the B1G Title were some pretty great days. Even beating Indiana in 2006 to go to 11-0 going into the OSU game was a great day.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Love the table but one question||
Is the weighted column correct? For Alabama for example, the weighted total is less than the regular total. It also doesnt seem to be the incremental amount. I am confused.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Any insight on special teams?||
They have been so bad lately that I would love to see improvement there. We must have the longest streak in college football without returns for touchdowns (Stonum kick return in 2009 against ND and Odoms punt return in 2008 I think are the most recent.).
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks for the updating btw.||
This is a great list.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Are the column headings correct?||
Aren't the seniors class of 2016? Or does the year refer to the last season they play?
|12 weeks 1 day ago||They did lose McGary, GR3, Stauskas, Morgan and Horford.||
While we expect Beilein to just reload, it's a tall order this year.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||It really does||
The game screams Big Ten. Zero offensive points......
|16 weeks 9 hours ago||You might want to check some facts||
Stoops also had Oklahoma in the National Title game after the 2003, 2004 and 2008 seasons. He lost 21-14 to Saban's LSU squad, 55-19 to Carroll's USC team, and 24-14 to Meyer's Florida team. I would say making the National Title game 4 times is pretty impressive. But even if not, its definitely, out of the ordinary. That may be the most any team made it in the BCS era.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||I found this post stunning to the point I verified it||
I find it damn near unfathomable that Hoke has only won 6 road game in 3.75 seasons! He is 6-11! That is crazy bad.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah||
He has garnered some up votes! But he should, his email post may have been the straw that broke the camel's back.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||That is the biggest win of the fall season so far||
Without Brandon, there is hope.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||I didn't either||
That is awesome. I think he has more than Brian!
|18 weeks 9 hours ago||I have always wondered about this||
People all thought it was great when Hoke said his goal in college was to try to drink every beer in Podunk Indiana when he was in college. And when he preached toughness. Why does Michigan always want to win on physical play? Being a strong academic school, shouldnt we try to win with smarts over physicality? Bring back Fritz Crisler's Mad Magicians!
|18 weeks 1 day ago||I think you are right.||
ESPN has what you have right now on their website
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Welcome back||
Glad this worked out. It must have been painfull for a while.
|20 weeks 2 hours ago||Pitchfork is such a better choice.||
Never understood why people go for torches.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||yeah he does||
About 18,000 to 6,000....
18,000 is a lot of points for someone to take down other than a mod.....
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Wow||
This has more potential than our football team....
|21 weeks 2 hours ago||So are you saying||
That our coaches arent good at halftime adjustments? I didnt see a conclusion?
|21 weeks 22 hours ago||Is he not toxic now?||
What more does it take? I feel like Brandon is more toxic than RRod was at this point.
|21 weeks 22 hours ago||Also put it in perspective||
While Ross is an enormous donor who has made very impressive donations to the University that have likely greatly enriched a lot of things, the University's endowment was $8.4 billion in 2013. I believe Ross has donated around $300 million or 3.5%. He is a big voice, but no individual donor is going to be the only voice.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||33-16 looking pretty good now||
In reference to your footer. The class of 2015 is at 28-17 with 6, maybe 7 games to go.
Plus, you were 3-1 against Ohio, 1-1 against ND, 2-2 against State and 2-2 in bowl games.
Although the class of 2011 is modern day worst, went 24-26.........0-4 against Ohio, 3-1 against ND, 1-3 against State, 1-1 bowl games.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Really both are pretty bad.||
While I agree that the defense is nowhere near the ineptness of last years running games, being 51st in scoring defense is pretty bad. Expectations in year 4 at Michigan are much higher.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Yes he would stay but||
How much evidence do you need? We are 3-7 in our last 10 B1G games and 3-10 against Power5 conference teams.
Hypothetically the Pistons can be NBA champions this year.
I was shocked he wasn't fired after Rutgers.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Well, on the bright side||
We are only 1.5 underdogs on Sagarin against Penn State after you factor in home field.
That makes it essentially a toss up.
That is better than I thought it would be.
