lets be fair here. you didn't get into michigan being a bad student. you got into michigan because highschool was easy, and your what me and others called a professional "slacker"...I was like this in Highschool. didn't bother with homework, wrote papers the night of, played calculator games during class... I would be taking the weekly math test and figuring out the material for the first time on said test. I took all AP courses where possible and got out of highschool with a 3.2 GPA which in retrospect sucked, because I knew I was better than that, but I just was bored.

here is an idea i've kicked arround
4 16 team conferences. 8 in a division. 9 in converence games (7 against everyone on your side 2 on the other) 2 OOC games, 1G5 Tuneup, and 1 P5 "challenge game"
Challenge Game: Basically a rotating conference matchup game, so say Bama and OSU one there conferences the previous year. and SEC16 and BIG16 were matched up. 2nd game of the year OSU would play BAMA, lets say Michigan and Flordia were 3rd we would play them, home/away on these could be tricky but i'm sure a system could be devised. (this also could be changed to the top 8- the top team teams of each conference and be the new "bowls")
Playoff. essentially 3 round including the conference championship round.
Worst upper conference team plays best lower conference team every year to allow for new blood into the 64 team upper conferences.

I see it more as. Penn State or another school talking to him with something like "so Michigan didn't offer you because they wanted to see you first. must be on the second level on there boards. well your top on ours!"

I thinkn the staff is hedging there bets. all these Top 100 guys from out of regioin, are prolly going to wait it out till the end of the year. so if Michigan has a Playoff Run type of season like we think is POSSIBLE then we will do very well with that group. but if we have 2-3 loss season if we struggle at QB, then they will start pushing harder for these high 3 star low 4 star types they like.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||the fix is get rid of the 85||
the fix is get rid of the 85 cap. allow schools to sign 20 kids a year no more. transfers don't have to sit out a year but count toward the 20.
This would encourage redsirting, make teams loyal to the players they have since there is no bennifit to them transfering. would discourage teams from taking lots of transfers since a kid out of highschool gets them 5 years a transfer would be less than that.
the only big issue is that walkons would rarely be given scholorships unless they are a threat to transfer to another school to get a scholorship.

also they miss a lot of the east coast fans who would tune in to a game if it was say at 3:30 in the afternoon, but so many good games at 11pm or midnight START times its hard to tune in.

do not like...quite a few people from west michigan and other areas from more than an hour away not going to be able to make it. will be interesting to see if they have more or less than last year.

this is different. kinda awkward but i'll hold final opinion till later

think of it this way we had a better than expected year, and Rudock did a great job. But if you put a QB equivalent to Luck on our team we are prolly 11-1 and in the playoffs. Keep shoveling the QBs on and let the best fight there way to the surface.

something tells me they will be fine. they have 3 Freshmen QBs ont he roster from last year

something tells me kiffen is going to get the "firm handshake" at the end of the year from bama. hear rumblings from lots of bama fans that saban and him don't really have the same "vision"

Did you turn off the tv with 10 seconds to go against MSU and go to bed happy? (not a bad idea in retrospect)

plus the fact that there are hopefully intellgent people on the committe. they will look at the MSU game in the right light. still a loss but would be hopefully weighted appropriatly.
I think if we win out. and beat an undefeated OSU and an undefeated Iowa (who should be ranked in the top4 by that point I would have to imagin if undefeated still. That would be very hard to ignore.
still would require some upsets in other conferences

The only senerio I can see a possible CFP berth is:
We win out.
MSU loses to OSU and one other team
Iowa Wins out until the Big Ten Championship (should give us back to back top 5 wins
We beat Iowa.
would prolly need a bit more chaos to happen in other conferences but this is atleast plausable

I think it will be OSU, we would not get it do to worse overall record. and then OSU would have the head to head victory over MSU

Rrankings don't matter. just win. At this point were playing for a big ten championship. The only upset we are hopping for is one that results in a "Sparty No!" moment
