the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

This will give us an advantage.

Plan on enjoying your dinner and don't worry about it.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||The only reasonable explanation||
The only reasonable explanation for this loss is that there weren't enough threads devoted to getting the word out.

No they don't. Ever.

Are they really going to be wearing white pants with this? I don't like the all-white look.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Damn it||
I was going to write the ironic and expected "This will end well" post but was too late in opening the thread. nm.

Not everybody's the perfect person in the world. I mean everyone kills people, murders people, steals from you, steals from me, whatever. I think that people need a second chance, and I've always looked up to Mike Vick, and I always will.

Denard and Brady on the same offense? There are not enough ermahgerds to describe the ermahgerdiness.

Pat - you jumped too early, jerk! Muah ha ha ha!

Mad props to Matt Wile for coming in and making that longer field goal. I don't think he's had any FG attempts during his time here and to hit that was absolutely clutch.

|31 weeks 1 day ago||"A Michigan Defense"||
I know this isn't a direct response to the recruiting aspect, but I always took "a Michigan Defense" to mean an unquantifiable, inspirational, and normally unreachable standard that preaches Hoke and Mattison's values for how Michigan should play on that side of the ball - competitive, tough, proud, resilient, disciplined - and acts as a motivational tactic for any defensive player.
In corporate speak, I guess I see playing as "a Michigan Defense" as the Vision Statement that the defensive performance should always be striving for but can almost never quite achieve* - it encompasses the values of what makes a defense great (as so many past Michigan Defenses have been), rather than listing the defense's mission (the goal this week is allowing only x number of points, making x number of sacks, creating x number of takeaways).
Whether you're Jordan Kovacs or Charlie Zeller, Mattison and Hoke have done a great job of instilling the mindset that each player needs to do their job in making this defensive unit a Michigan Defense each Saturday. This is because being considered one is the highest honor and ability that you could possibly achieve. It's a lofty goal to be sure.
*Mattison's proclamation after the unit's performance in last year's Illinois game, notwithstanding
|32 weeks 16 hours ago||Agreed||
I agree with this. It is the intention by both sides to commit to each other that is what Hoke stresses. I don't see the issue with Michigan and a prospective athlete having this verbal mutual understanding but is this a legally binding agreement? Of course not.
Also, +1 for the Tiffin reference.

FWIW, something weekly like this would go great on the front page. I like the name "Opponent Watch" too.

|34 weeks 5 days ago||All of the tackles||
How does one record 25 tackles in a game? I'm not even mad - that's amazing.
|35 weeks 1 day ago||2009 - Michigan 63, Delaware State 6||
Much like the 2010 Bowling Green game, RR's offense was rolling with a second-string crew of Denard and Vincent Smith. 727 yards of total offense, 461 on the ground. And David Cone: 3-3 for 54 yards.
I remember that their band's halftime show was quite good.

Row 80. My brother and I are making our annual trip from Ohio.
|36 weeks 1 day ago||Close, but Michigan win||
7-point game at the half, safeties bail us out of many missed tackles, freshmen get a lot of playing time on both sides of the ball and two bubble screens are ignored by Borges in the postgame presser.
