I think this represents how high and low ranked they have been in the poll this season, not where they were on ballots this week.

Fickle, these kids.

Did the actions of a few fans make the entire Detroit fanbase a "trashy, racist," "moronic prick fanbase"?
Also, the fantastic Oral History from Grantland in case anyone forgot:

Aren't they only rewarding the students for the Michigan State game?
What happens for Arizona, Wisconsin, and Indiana?

So they will probably have us play early on Thursday to avoid the play-in teams playing the early game after playing Tuesday night. 12:00 or 2:30 is my guess.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||If Syracuse or K State win tonight...||
We will fall to a 4 probably.

Devin Hester is the best kick returner in the history of the NFL. Denard once made an appearance on the kick return team. I'm not sure we can go there yet.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Hardaway||
Did he really go 1-9 from 3PT? Did not seem that bad while watching the game.
His ability to drive into the lane stood out to me, at least early on, when the team was struggling to find offense elsewhere.

I'm not sure you can make a realistic case that Trout has been "figured out" when his OBP in September is .380.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||UZR||
If you want to use some advanced fielding statistics, Mike Trout has the second best UZR among CF (11.7). Cabrera has the second worst UZR among 3B (-10.6).
UZR = ultimate zone rating. The number of runs above or below average a fielder is in both range runs and error runs combined.
Defensive metrics and base running is why many sports writers have Trout over Cabrera. Ultimately, I think it comes down to the fact that the Tigers made the playoffs, and the Angels did not.
If the Angels had called Trout up before the end of April, the Angels probably make the playoffs, and Trout ends up with even more ridiculous numbers.

Why do you need to do 1-1-1?
Right now it's 2-2-1.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Agree with this.||
Recent MLaw grad here. Outside of the top schools, there is not much difference. Take the scholarship, or don't go at all (and I would lean toward the latter).
If you do well, after your first year at Wayne State, you can attempt to transfer to a top school like Michigan. But even that is no guarantee as I still have friends that graduated from UM in the past couple years who have yet to find steady employment.

|2 years 29 weeks ago||According to Rothstein...||
"Michigan safety Josh Furman has been suspended from the football team and is due in court April 23 to face three misdemeanor counts of domestic violence, assault and battery and illegal entry, court records show."
No felony charges.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Florida||
I think you're confused. Florida is 23-9 right now. Winning SEC would make them 25-9, not 31-9. They also ended the regular season on a 3 game losing streak. They're currently a 6 seed in the Bracket Matrix, unlikely to get a 3 I think, but maybe a win over Kentucky would change everything.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Dawson||
State could also drop to a 3 because of the impact of the Dawson injury. Obviously, that would be more likely with a loss to Wisconsin.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Who would bump us from the 3 line?||
Right now, according to Bracket Matrix, the current 3 seeds are Marquette, Michigan, Baylor, and Georgetown. The 4 seeds are Wisconsin, Indiana, Temple, and Florida State.
Georgetown is in the most danger of getting passed at this point since they are lowest ranked 3 and lost the earliest in their respective tournament. Indiana and Temple are done. That leaves Wisconsin and Florida State to pass us. And I guess if Louisville won the Big East tourney they could move up to a 3.
So in terms of rooting interests today, as bad as this sounds, we root for State, Duke, and Cinci in the Big East final. Or we just beat Ohio.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Clearly Minnesota||
Minnesota is who we want to play, but I'd say it is unlikely. NW caught a huge break with Ralph Sampson being sidelined with a knee injury.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Preseason Rankings Say Otherwise||
Michigan State was unranked to start the season, while Michigan was ranked #18.
I think the argument you make for Beilein is that he took an unheralded group of players while Tom Izzo won with more star 4/5 star type recruits, not that expectations were so much lower for Michigan.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Vandy in Nashville in Round 2?||
Seems unlikely as top 4 seeds are generally protected from having to play early round "road" games. Vandy is located in Nashville, I think.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Iowa RPI||
Iowa's RPI is 139 right now (not sure if that is updated with the Wisconsin win last night). They'd need to get that up to 70ish (I think 75 is the worst to ever make it) to have a real shot. Not sure if wins over ILL, Neb, and NW plus a couple BTT wins will do that.
Edit: Not updated for yesterday's win, but the worst RPI in the Big Ten as of yesterday behind Penn St and Nebraska.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||#2||
I think it's more likely NW beats Ohio in Evanston than Wisconsin winning in Columbus.
But both would be nice.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Indiana||
I think it was Indiana. Not positive though.
Edit: Nevermind. Beat them once in 91-92 season.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Here's why it is a discussion...||
"Michigan's not going into Selection Sunday on pins and needles, even if they lose out."
Because the writer of this site mentioned it? And commenters are saying that is probably not true. Obviously, we're playing very well, and in the hunt for the Conference title, and no one is saying we are going to lose out. At no point did anyone refuse to say UM is a good team.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Not on bubble now||
Clearly, we're not on the bubble now, but losing 5 games in a row to close the season, 6 if we lost the 1st BTT game, and we'd be 19-13 (9-10). That would put us squarely on the bubble.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Burke Blocking Call||
I think Burke was still moving there if ever so slightly. A 50/50 call if anything.

1st round loss in BTT would make us 10-9. That should seemingly be enough.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Meaningless||
Not sure how it would be meaningless in football, especially if conference champs got an automatic berth to play in a 4, 6 or 8 team playoff. It would actually mean everything.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||This||
It is mostly about shot selection this year. Last year I think he shot something like 38% from 3. This year he is shooting 27% from 3. Despite this, he is leading the team in 3 point shots attempted by a pretty good margin. He's shooting 55% on 2p fga. Just needs to take better shots and not force so many.
