|4 days 19 hours ago||Next year||
Hard to make an assement of next year without knowing a lot about each team on the schedule but its hard to come up with a meaningful arguement that the team will perform as well as 2016 version. PSU and Wisco on the road is just about as difficult as OSU and Iowa and I can't assume that MSU will continue to be a total mess. Also not convinced playing AF and their crazy offense with a young defense is a cakewalk...
Also as good as people expect this class to be... freshman typically are not good, WR and OL in particular, and these are the areas we seem to be in need of.
I expect OSU to be significantly better and UM to be signifcantly worse so unless something unforseen happens I'd be assuming 9-10 win ceiling.
|6 days 16 hours ago||fair||
i'll certainly be watching and excited for a win but it'll still feel like a pretty big let down from where i thought this team would finish 4 weeks ago
|6 days 16 hours ago||Gotta agree||
A month ago it was CFP or Rose at worst.... this feels like a big step down
|1 week 5 days ago||Yes, yes it was||
At what point did UM get back down to the 1 yard line?
Snuffing out a punt fake and sitting on the 1 yard line are not equal elements.
|1 week 5 days ago||Totally agree||
I can't imagine a scenario (outside of injuries) where OSU isn't as good or better in years to come and UM graduates so many senior starters. Hard to feel too excited about next year.
|1 week 5 days ago||Can still get worse||
OSU on a CFP run would have to qualify as unmitigated rock-bottom...
between this and last years MSU game, you have to wonder whether fandom is worth the heartache.
|1 week 5 days ago||There is nothing positive from Saturday||
Losing a ton of senior starters, missing conference and national championship opportunities, letting OSU off the hook and probably propelling them to the playoffs. Let's not kid ourselves, every single part of that was bad and a massive disappointment and whatever comes of the bowl season (CFP ain't happening) is a let down from where this group was a month ago.
Perhaps even worse, OSU could be 2 wins from another CFP championship and there team, in all likelyhood, will be better (more experienced) next year.

Isn't there an LSU full back commit coming up for the Illinois game?
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Helps OSU||
a player they probably didnt need will get replaced by a "higher regarded" position player. Sucks for the kid but it probably helps their class overall.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||is it possible to be on "decommit" watch?||
Do we unbuckle or debuckle.... whats the protocol???
|13 weeks 1 day ago||I don't follow recruiting close enough to know||
but it seems unusual to have this much attrition in a short period of time. But i guess its possible that OSU, FSU, etc also have decommitments like this on a regular basis too. Perhaps the kind of question Steve could answer.
i'm not suggestiing its a big deal or not a big deal... the timing just seems unusual.

ESPN is a waste of your time... Thus ends todays public service announcement
|15 weeks 4 days ago||double post||
|15 weeks 4 days ago||You dont need money||
but it certainly helps sustain things over 16 weeks
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Pecking order||
This sentence struck me as surprising, although maybe it shouldn't...
"Michigan has lined up both VT and Washington in 2020 and 2021 and then starts series with UCLA, Texas, and Oklahoma. Canceling Arkansas is one thing; cancelling any of the latter three series is a much worse idea."
Is the majority opinion that VT and Wash are bigger draws then Arkansas? UCLA, Texas and Oklahoma seem like no-brainers but i would have put Arkansas over the other two. Perhaps that's just an irrational desire to beat the SEC.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Relegation||
I always thought this would be a good solution for NCAA "realignment". Let the current Big 5 be the top level league and then line up the remaining conferences below each league as the 2nd division. A N. Illinois for Purdue swap could be interesting, even if its only temporary.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||And just like that...||
every bit of good will Warde has accumulated has gone right out the window... count me among those who hate this.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Wondering||
how many Oline players we take in 2017 given the 3 already committed and some of the high level guys still being targeted.
|43 weeks 4 days ago||My question is||
How long before the SEC asks the NCAA to ban this as well.
|43 weeks 4 days ago||SEC hates themselves some Michigan||
feels like this was a back channel complain by the SEC to ESPN since they are joined at the hip these days....
|43 weeks 5 days ago||Trajectory||
there has to be some middle group for people who A) do not want JB fired and B) question the health of the program. I am one of them and my biggest gripe is that after all that success with the NC game and final 4 apperance, etc the recruiting never seemed to take off. That always struck me as a bit ususual.
Maybe it does just come down to paying kids vs. not paying them... sucks that this is where NCAABB is.
|44 weeks 1 day ago||Count me among those||
who have no interest in seeing the ND series renewed on an annual basis... for a multitude of reasons
|44 weeks 5 days ago||ya and Fuller didn't make sense||
because of the timing... could just be a typo but the tweets came out close to the same time
|44 weeks 5 days ago||Scouts tweet||
I also thought the tweet below was a bit odd since, to the best of my limited knowledge, Michigan isn't recruting any of the top 5 CB's in the East who are announcing on NSD. Fuller is one, but he announces tonight.
|46 weeks 1 day ago||Exactly why||
The Swenson stuff doesn't bother me... you may not like recruting but at least its an open relationship on both ends. The player can walk away and the college can walk away at any point prior to signing on the dotted line and if that's what's in their best intersts, then so be it.
|47 weeks 5 days ago||Was that the mystery visitor?||
i thought that was all a lot of hype and no substamce... is there still solid evidence that some top committed player from the UA game with a connection to Gary is a surprise visitor in January?
|47 weeks 5 days ago||Jordan Elliots quote||
seems pretty interesting when it comes to DB's... even if you assume Hill and Long are 2 of the 3, who is the third? Hudson? Hill also seems to be trending towards one of these guys who seems like he'll commit for forever and then never does.
|48 weeks 4 days ago||Sent from the future...||
How is the date listed as January 6th
|48 weeks 4 days ago||Any chance||
that Long's decision impacts Hill... either in terms of space for a CB or just overall commits we can take? Also curious if most recruitniks think Hill is more important than someone like Fuller or even Hudson despite the star difference
