Those off-field issues are kind of a big deal. Its like saying "cancer, despite a propensity for killing you, is a great way to lose weight."

Midseason is only 2 games away.
(Sheds a tear.)
|21 hours 57 min ago||Like....how? How is firing||
Like....how? How is firing BVG not an attempt at fixing the situation AND saving his job? I'm not even sure how those two things can be separate.
|21 hours 59 min ago||It'll be interesting to see||
It'll be interesting to see what happens at Oregon. Heard somewhere recently (Solid Verbal podcast maybe?) that they haven't fired a coach since the late 70s. So no one really knows how long the leash on Helfrich actually is.
|22 hours 41 min ago||Their defense is very good||
I know everyone wants to just focus on Lamar Jackson when it comes to Louisville, but they have a very good defense too. And there's more to Jackson than just scrambles. He's like Denard with an arm.
|22 hours 46 min ago||Especially since Michigan is||
Especially since Michigan is the top 3rd down defense in the country.
|1 day 2 hours ago||There's a decent chance||
Using ESPN's FPI, Colorado is favored against Oregon St., Arizona St., Arizona, Washington St., and Utah. That would get them to 8 wins. FPI currently has them dogs against USC, Stanford and UCLA, but there's a chance that changes after the numbers get updated after week 4. Either way, I could see them winning one of those games. That gets them to 9 wins. Throw in a bowl game win and boom, 10 wins.
Sunday AM Edit: The updated FPI numbers have them favored in all games but at USC and at Stanford. They also ranked Colorado as #29 overall.

63, 41, 45, and 49 points in each of the first four games. Noice.
|3 days 18 hours ago||It's completely counter to||
It's completely counter to his "the only way to get better at football is to play football." If you're playing football incorrectly, half assed, or "left handed" you're not getting better. You're just getting better at playing shitty football instead of playing good football.

Its Joel Klatt that used the word "politefully" -- not the writer. The writer was just quoting Klatt, who on a related note, really annoys me. Don't know why, but he just does. Like someone you just want to punch in the face for no good reason.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Petersen passed on USC||
According to Joel Klatt in that article, Petersen was interested in USC, but passed after looking deeper into the admin. Gotta give him credit for seeing the tire fire there and taking a hard pass on it.
Chip, however, was interested and wanted the job. After getting fired in Philly it would have been perfect Harbaugh-esque timing too.
And this was last winter too, after Sark got fired.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Bama's schedule||
Agreed, but I don't know who or when someone is actually going to test Alabama. Ole Mis certainly isn't good and didn't answer any questions for me either, but after that....um...at Arkansas on 10/8 maybe? Maybe Texas A&M at home on 10/22?
That's it. That's all of the tough competition left on their schedule. Tennessee is trash, LSU is trash, and the rest is cupcakes. Don't see anyone in the SEC East testing them in the SEC Champ game either (unless Florida turns into a good team).
Likely won't know anything about Alabama until the playoff.

|6 days 11 hours ago||Just depends on his options||
Just depends on his options and what he wants to do. If he comes back it'll likely be as a backup that rarely sees the field. It's a legit question on whether or not all the grind of football practice is worth it. You either move on after this year or next. Sometimes, you've just got to punt.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Yeah, that's what I'm saying.||
Yeah, that's what I'm saying. Post-football life is coming on fast either way. Tough to say that another year of grind and likely injury is worth it.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Honest question: does Drake||
Honest question: does Drake even want to come back? It's just been a nonstop string of bad luck and injuries for him. Maybe it's just time to move on and get started on life.
|1 week 31 min ago||He should also change his||
He should also change his name to Lamar Jackson.
|1 week 21 hours ago||It's the fact that we can't||
It's the fact that we can't run and their secondary is very good and very opportunistic. That's a problem for Michigan.
|1 week 21 hours ago||Hey||
Hey, first half Ole Miss is the No. 1 team in the country. That has to count for something, right?
|1 week 21 hours ago||Someone has to be ranked||
Its mostly because someone has to be ranked No. 8. And while Notre Dame isn't that good, they are still better than what other teams in that area of the rankings have played.
I mean teams 9-12 are Washington, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, and Georiga. Those are all interchangable.
|1 week 21 hours ago||33% chance vs Ohio State||
They've also dropped Michigan to just a 33% chance of winning at Ohio State. It had been around 45% or so. Frankly, I feel 33% is high. Ohio State looks terrifying and built to stop this particular Michigan team.
Still a lot of football to play though, so we shall see.
|1 week 1 day ago||None of those teams you||
None of those teams you mentioned, outside of Texas, are a top 25 team. And Texas is borderline after their loss to Cal. Comparing what Michigan did against some terrible teams to what other terrible teams did, doesn't relaly help make a case for top 5.
|1 week 2 days ago||Again, who would want him?||
Again, who would want him? NFL likes NFL coordinators and NFL retreads a lot more than they do CFB guys. Unless he wants to leave to be a coordinator I think the NFL head coaching ship has sailed.
|1 week 2 days ago||Westwood is amazing. Blew me||
Westwood is amazing. Blew me out of the water the first time I was there.
|1 week 2 days ago||If you're worried about||
If you're worried about cheating, college basketball probably isn't the sport for you.
|1 week 2 days ago||Doubt Mora jumps for a bigger||
Doubt Mora jumps for a bigger ship. UCLA is a pretty decent job. Would a place like Auburn be a step up or a better job? I mean, where's he going to go? He's like the Kevin Sumlin of the Pac-12.
|1 week 3 days ago||He easily makes a couple of||
He easily makes a couple of million a year with ESPN. And Gruden is ESPN's highest paid employee. Think somewhere around $10m a year.
|1 week 3 days ago||LOL, thought of that too.||
LOL, thought of that too. What shocks me is the amount that I know about WD's purchases and spending habits.
|2 weeks 2 hours ago||Brady Hoke approach||
"Imposing your will" is something Brady Hoke was fond of. Doing the same thing over and over and over, and then blaming execution when it continuously failed. Its nice to have coaches that will take what the defense gives them.

Braden got worked on those first two series.
