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

I understand the negatives on pom-poms, but I have to say that, on TV, when it's a big moment and 7NA is playing and everyone is in rythm, it looks pretty sweet. It's like the whole stadium is pulsating.

I think they only do it for games already played, but they get a fan of each team to do a running commentary on the game. I think its a brilliant concept if you get the right people, though between the idioms and insider knowledge, pretty much everything went over my head the one time I tried to watch it. Still, I would love to see ESPN try this more with former players of each team, and tell them to go ahead and be as biased, funny, and irreverant as they want.

Dad went to MSU, so growing up in Michigan, I rooted for them, even though my mom was UM and my first cfb experiences were all at Michigan Stadium. Then we moved to Texas, and one of my few connections to home was M games (MSU not on national TV). I guess I officially switched with the 89 Rose Bowl. Then it came time to pick a school, M said yes, Dad said yes, Desmond caught that pass, and it was over.

that David Molk does indeed have teeth. Nice to seem him smile (and have ample reason to). I love that kid.
Brian, the opening to this post was brilliant. The more you know about these kids, the more you want to seem them rewarded. And dammit, if I have to teach 95% of Michigan fans in twenty years how this group of seniors saved Michigan football, I hope I can still link back to these posts to do it.

They have no quality wins. NC State is Minnesota bad.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Auburn is too high||
They have not put anyone away, even the bad teams on their schedule. South Carolina should have had a shot at a tying field goal if not for bad call with the clock and refusal to review. Not saying they don't deserve to be ranked, but no way should they be above any undefeateds in the 10-15 range.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Love this feature -- one request||
Could we get a brief recap of what the previous teams we've played did last week? Not the full write-up / preview report, but just whether they won or lost and their current record? Would be nice to get a gauge of our strength of schedule.
|2 years 13 hours ago||I doubt the Wings get moved||
First, move them where? They wouldn't get moved to the Southeast, and there is nobody to move out of the Northeast or Atlantic without splitting up the New York area teams or the Pennsylvania teams, which I don't think would be wise.
Second, there is a much more natural team to move into the Southeast in Nashville, which aligns better with southern teams like Carolina and the Florida duo than with the midwest.
Third, while flying across four time zones is murder during the playoffs, the Wings fit well in the midwestern Central Division with long-time rivalries against Chicago and St. Louis and a burgeoning rivalry with Columbus.
More likely, I see three options, none of which involve moving the Wings:
1. Winnipeg to NW, Minnesota to Central, Nashville to SE
2. Winnipeg to NW, Colorado to Pacific, Dallas to Central, Nashville to SE
3. Winnipeg to NW, Colorado to Pacific, Dallas to SE.
Personally, I would go with 1, which minimizes moves, is a better fit for all three teams, and brings back most of the old Norris cities.

Brian, I never would have taken you for a REK fan. I love that album, especially his vignettes, and that one is my second favorite (behind the guys sitting in the back yard around a window unit air conditioner).
And as for hitting bottom, as tough as this loss was, we were there. In the arena. Despised, maybe, but relevant. Hell, I love being despised. I'll take an OT loss in the national championship (an effective coin toss) over two bowl-less seasons and a decade out of the NCAA Bball tournament.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||I second Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer||
It's obviously Alabama and SEC focused, but a hilarious read. My only regret about it is that he really doesn't go into any detail about the end of the '99 season for Bama (a heartbreaking loss (for them) to Michigan in the Orange Bowl).

|3 years 38 weeks ago||I recall and Stassen confirmed that Maryland did this with FSU||
In 1996, Maryland played its conference home game against Florida State in Miami. They were trounced 48 - 10. Florida State went undefeated that year until losing to National Champion Florida in a rematch of their regular season finale.
