Talk to Brian, he might recommend someone. As long as it's big ten related I think it would be a great addition to this blog. I would be happy to contribute in any way I can.

I use Covers' Power Rankings. Every one has their own, and Covers has been touted by alot of third parties as remaining unbiased. Basically it's a proprietory algorithm that relies on wins, losses, strength of schedule, and every statistic known to man. ESPN has their own, and they are usually pretty close to Covers. I like to use them because they take alot of bias out of the equation and rely on numbers. If you haven't checked out Covers, you should, they have awesome statistics and matchup info. They also have an App for those of you who can't ever remember where the line was when you made your bet (that would be me).

Great diary, well written. I looked at Gardner play 2 years ago and thought he had great potential. He has an awesome arm, he's fast and makes people miss, and he stands tall in the pocket. When I saw the turn overs he made I chalked them up to inexperience. I figured the coaches would take pure talent and nurture him into a great qb. Mechanics can be taught, situational awareness can be taught, reads and schemes can be mastered. I haven't seen much progression from 2 years ago. Gardner still has that talent; I think the coaches cheated him out of possible greatness.

Michigan dominating will fix all of these problems, except maybe the wave. I was introduced to it at my first game in 2004. I participated with vigor, and it's still something I look forward to.

Under Roger Goodell, slapping around a woman is worth a two game suspension. Taking your helmet off and swinging at a player and missing is worth a 4 game suspension. He has been more lax than the ncaa and just as arbitrary.

Interesting post. Anyway you could adjust your data for strength of schedule? I can see an 8 or 9 win season, but right now I'm too deflated to be overly optimistic.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||Nice picks||
I'm a little worried about the Penn State game. But, i figured I'd give them a shot. Their rush def. is impressive but it came off two teams ranked 125th and 116th in rushing. Of course, half of that could be due to playing Penn. Home dogs are over 60% win so far ATS, hopefully I can ride that out.
I think next week I'll post this on Wednesday so I can include some O/U action. If you have any other suggestions i would welcome them.

So, whats the message here? Pay your 60 million dollar fine and we don't actually care what else happens, as long as we get your money. Then we can donate it to child abuse prevention and look really really good.

First I would read this http://www.legalgamblingusa.com/states/michigan-online-gambling.html
I rarely bet online. The only service I have used is 5 dimes. http://www.5dimes.eu/sportsbook.html
They have bets on everything; I'm talking Rat Race kind of bets.
Usually I make bets over the phone.. I've got a guy.
I try to make one or two bets a week. I like to Parlay picks, 3 per parlay, or four if I see something really obvious. Parlaying is actually pretty stupid as it destroys your odds of making long term money. But I like it because it gives you more picks for your money. I see it as fun money. It's like going to Cedar Point. If I get a refund at the end of the day or free season passes, cool.

9-3 is still doable. The shutout hurt our pride. I have always thought we were still another year away from relevance. Firing Hoke would be bad for the program. The talent is coming in, it will get better.

Why all the hate? There's an easy correlation with the coaching problems. Michigan and Notre Dame are very similar programs. And how long till ACC teams are considered on par with Big Ten teams? He obviously doesn't wish MI was Notre Dame; he just wants to feel the optimism Notre Dame feels, now. They turned their program around faster. Who wouldn't envy them?

I started getting worried about this game after watching him play week one. I wouldn't be surprised if he's a Heisman contender.
