Yeah, hopefully he's on the trip and gets a swag bag. But back and playing? LOL, noooooooooo that would be the dumbest burned redshirt ever.

Unless they hire Pruitt from Georgia. I could see that happening. Durkin made $800k and Pruitt made $850k so salaries are comparable.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Alabama isn't losing||
There is no way in hell Alabama is losing. Have you seen Florida the last few weeks?
The only chaos would be if Clemson loses to North Carolina, which is fairly possible. That would leave you with Alabama, Oklahoma, and the B1G winner. For the fourth slot, you'd have Pac-12 winner, UNC, and Ohio State. Since the committee values conf championships so much, I think Stanford would have the best resume of those three because of their win over Notre Dame. UNC has a terrible schedule (two FCS teams on it), and all Ohio State would have going for it is a win over a 15-20'ish ranked Michigan.
Plus, if it comes down to picking a second Big Ten team over a conference champ, they'll go with the conf champ if its close.

Supposedly he was told after the game he was coming back as head coach and the crowd support was in fact a factor. Prior to that, Les thought that was it for him. I mean, how do you fire a guy when an entire stadium is chanting the dude's name?
And Alleva is toast. Dude totally botched this entire thing.
|2 days 1 hour ago||No way Les leaves||
Les makes too much money to not come back. Plus, he has a ton of talent coming back and a great recruiting class coming in. No way in hell he walks out on that and his players.
The AD got outplayed badly, and will likely be the one looking for a new job.
|2 days 1 hour ago||LOL||
LOL, none of this had anything to do with ESPN. The Times-Picayune first reported the story weeks ago, and it just rolled from there with plenty of non-ESPN reports corraborating it. All of the talk was coming out of LSU -- not Bristol, CT. You think Les got carried off and was carrying himself like a man who coached his last game at LSU because of an ESPN report?
People are crazy with their ESPN hate, man.
|2 days 1 hour ago||We've been one of the worst in the country for years||
Brief period from 2011-12 where things were good, but its been bad for a while.
Forced Fumble Stats for Michigan
2015 -- 5 FF (114th nationally)
2014 -- 5 (122)
2013 -- 8 (102)
2012 -- 12 (61)
2011 -- 13 (21)
2010 -- 6 (112)
2009 -- 9 (89)
2008 -- 15 (23)
Subpar talent and bad coaching will do that to you. Gonna take a few more seasons to wash out the Hoke stink.
|2 days 4 hours ago||I pointed this out well||
I pointed this out well before the season (Michigan has been one of the worst in the country at generating TOs the last several years) and said it was a byproduct of years of shit coaching and recruiting and got raked over the coals and neg bombed to hell for it.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Doubtful. Don't think the Big||
Doubtful. Don't think the Big Ten will (or can) land teams in 3 of the 6 CFP/NY6 games.
|2 days 10 hours ago||You're capped on the number||
You're capped on the number of recruits you can bring in, but not on transfers. I think there will be plenty of transfers in the offseason to open up space.
|3 days 3 hours ago||No, it was mainly because the||
No, it was mainly because the Big House didn't have lights until recently and with a 3:30pm or later start it would've been too dark to finish at that time of year.
|3 days 3 hours ago||Ideally over the next few||
Ideally over the next few years this should be the spotlight game regardless of time slot.

Amen. Noon is too damn early for a game like that.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Resignation isn't the issue||
Of course Miles isn't resigning or announcing he's resigning. He's getting fired. If he resigns, he doesn't get that $15M buyout.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Not to mention its a whole||
Not to mention its a whole HELL of a lot easier to make the playoff at FSU than it is at LSU. I just don't see many coaches wanting to leave a situation like FSU for one where 10-win seasons isn't good enough.
Jimbo is already at $5M a season. To leave FSU for LSU, they would have to go into the $7-8M/year range. He'd need a significant "put up with booster bullshit" bonus.
|3 days 10 hours ago||This is the part I really||
This is the part I really don't like. Lewis will always be 26 to me. And Peppers 5. Let them create their own legacies in new numbers instead of shadowing in someone else's legacy
|3 days 12 hours ago||I thought the Legends jerseys||
I thought the Legends jerseys program was awful. The patches were huge and awkward (patches just seem tacky to me), and I really didn't like players switching from their original jerseys into a legend jersey since that completely killed the opportunity for them to make a legend of their own.
We have giant empty blue walls on both sides of the stadium. As others have said, I don't know why we can't find a class and sleek way of doing a ring of honor. Keep the numbers in circulation, and if you wind up with multiple great players on a single number - like the #1 - then so be it. I'd much rather keep great numbers in circulation.
|6 days 6 hours ago||Aaron Shea||
Think it was Brian that said this somewhere, but Smith as an Aaron Shea type FB would be awesome. If you could put someone like a Kareem Walker and Smith in the backfield at the same time, that would create all sorts of problems for opposing defenses.
|6 days 7 hours ago||King also has 8 INTs which is||
King also has 8 INTs which is the same as Michigan has as a team. Tough to argue he doesn't deserve to be a finalist.
Cash also has 18 tackles for loss, which is kinda insane.

That's meta as hell, but what does it mean for Michigan? Who was he silent committed to?

Except we have injures. That's why he said "right now"

Last time I checked, they had the W, and Michigan didn't.
|1 week 2 days ago||Never mind. Forgot that's a||
Never mind. Forgot that's a FOX game. Probably still Bedlam since the winner of that one likely wins the Big 12.
|1 week 2 days ago||Sounds about right. I think||
Sounds about right. I think the committee will drop Florida though. They've looked bad two games in a row now. Slide them down and wedge Ohio State somewhere in that 8-11 range.
|1 week 2 days ago||Could see them maybe going to||
Could see them maybe going to ND-Stanford. Especially if that's the ABC Primetime game. That's probably the biggest game of the week now.
|1 week 2 days ago||No way. Big Ten is in the||
No way. Big Ten is in the playoff as long as uncle Barry is on the committee.
|1 week 2 days ago||Here's my conspiracy theory||
Zeke Elliott just said he's going pro too. Amongst some other things...
But here's my conspiracy theory: Ohio State lost on purpose. Urban Meyer is going to one of the monster job openings like USC, Georgia, LSU, or maybe Texas.
Due to recruiting, he needs to take the job as soon as the regular season is over. If Ohio State is in the playoff, he can't leave early -- he would be obligated to stick it out and coach through the playoff. But if they are out of it, he can leave when the regular season is done. So to be out of the playoff, he needed to lose to Michigan State or Michigan. Out of shear principle, he can't lose to Michigan so they drop the MSU game on purpose. That way he can still beat Michigan next week, and then leave on a high note.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yeah that's the Spurrier you||
Yeah that's the Spurrier you would get week in and week out. Not an upgrade.
|1 week 2 days ago||Spurrier doesn't give enough||
Spurrier doesn't give enough of a shit to do it. If you think Corso looks out of it and unprepared wait until you see Spurrier up there.
|1 week 5 days ago||Who gives a shit if they were unbeaten?||
What does being unbeaten have to do with anything? Neither Iowa or Ohio State have played anyone of consequence. You don't get extra credit for beating them because you were the first good team they played.
