"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

two games though. its two games plus a potential big ten championship game, rosebowl, or even a playoff game.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Wait||
So I'm not crazy right? Michigan has gotten f-Ed all year by refs, especially in big play? What did harbaugh do to Delaney?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||i actually||
think we'll be on the oustide looking in for the playoff BUT the first committee poll last year had OSU #16...
so....you never know.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||meh||
this is so hypothetical but ill play along -
i think the playoff committee could easily overlook our flukey lost to MSU, and if we beat OSU convincingly (14+ points) - you could see a path to us being ranked ahead of both MSU and OSU. but like i said - all hypothetical. theres still a half of season of football to play, but i certainly dont think we're out of the BIG title contention at all.
edit - also dont overlook the end of the season loss-factor, where the committee may put more stock into recent losses versus those earlier in the year. obviously that would also help us in this hypothetical osu/msu/UM round robin scenario.

As I hate him I've wondered how Meyer can't get a snif of the NFL? And at this point I wouldn't mind if the lions took him. Nothing else has worked, might as well try something new...

a young alumni, or standing section implemented in the stadium. i get my tickets via stubhub and sometimes it gets tiring sitting next to blue hairs.

Gets a direct wildcat snap, Michigan also wins by at least 14.

that was the turning point of the hoke era. (how prescient that it hinged on QB play?) but going into that game, we had just beaten MSU, were first in the division tracking to play for the b1g championship, after finishing a year where we just had won the sugar bowl.
but then denard gets hurt and the wheels fall off...

The lackluster announcers and that tiny kicker from ball state, I thought I was watching a high school football game instead of northwestern

i had forgotten about that memphis byu brawl. that was some sucker punch.
i guess this is what happens when you have to follow that byu honor code. its like that line from the simpons:
"no tv and no beer make homer go something something"

slip- his legs got cut out from him. #71 IIRC.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Put me down||
in the 10-2 category, with a win against one of MSU and OSU, the second loss being some random derp on the road.
I'll admit to being a blatant homer, but I still don't see this team doing any worse than 3 losses.

by the fact that most students keep their license (and thus their parent's homse address), for at the very least their freshmen year. any court hearings, etc for a violations are sent to the defendant's address. that's how my parents found about my MIP - not from the school.

"the corner" is one of the best books ive ever read, and "homicide" is right up there with it. both form largely the plot of the wire.

is going to claw their way back just to lose in some gut wrenching fashion in the end.

lindsay Lohan was good but the Walter white was hands down the best of the super bowl, imo

hope he does well. Seems like a great kid and deserves much better than what he got here (not just from the coaches, but the fans as well).
Odd to think, though, that out of our past two quarterbacks, one was drafted as a running back and the other will be drafted as wide receiver.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||Ha wut||
thats not at all what makes Ann Arbor famous. The two events you just mentioned take up a total of like 5 hours per year. And on top of that the naked mile is banned , no?, and hash bash attracts only like 100 people.
|46 weeks 6 days ago||meyer / nfl - question||
brian makes an interesting point that urban wouldnt be attractive to the NFL because of the type of offense he runs. Is this still the case today? Chip Kelly, Russell Wilson, and Colin Kaepernick (and I guess Andrew Luck, RGIII circa 2012, and maybe the future NFL Marcus Mariotta) are showing that the league can move a bit towards spread elements with more mobile QBs.
Look at what he did this year getting a third string QB to play for a national title. Look at Arizona Cardinals, a good team that was garbage after their first string QB went out. Pete Carroll, Chip Kelly, and Jim Harbaugh have dispelled the notion that college coaches can't work out in the NFL - I wonder if a bottom feeder team would take a chance on a guy like Urban Meyer? If i am an NFL GM and my options are some re-tread or Urban Meyer, you would have to at least consider Urban, no?

have close ties to that place. Them firing wannestach was a perfect example of "grass is greener" and now this is what, their 5th coach in 4 years? I think this is a good hire but it's still a barren wasteland over there, and basically has been ever since they moved into Steelers' stadium. It's an nfl town playing college ball in an nfl stadium and there is no school in America that gets less support from their students.
|48 weeks 5 days ago||Yep -||
I liked Nuss. Thought he was going to do well here. At the start of the season I argued that between Mattison and Nuss, we had (at the very least) the top3 tandem of coodinators in the conference. Not sure how things went so far south, but that is neither here nor there.
What this just makes official, as if it wasn't already known, we'll have another OC - 3 in 3 years - for our young offense. Hopefullly Harbaugh (if it is Harbaugh) can muster up some quick returns, or we're looking at another season of offensive despair.

with you but if I recall you are usually one of the biggest rr slappies when his team is winning...
|51 weeks 3 days ago||i tend to agree||
with your assestment a bit more, especially this part:
His best win in 5 years was 8-5 Florida. His 2nd and 3rd best wins were rivalry games vs decent, not great Ole Miss in year 1 and year 5. I cannot find a 4th best win in his first 5 years - it would be between Rice in a bowl and UM in a bowl. So in 64 (including 4 bowls) opportunities in 5 years I am at a loss to find a 4th quality win.
Mullen hasn't beaten anyone, really, and has padded his W/L total with the Troys and Alcorn States of the world. And fine, you want to say he's at the Purdue of the SEC. I get that, but we're not asking him to win the SEC Title Game - I just want to see an upset or two that proves he can get over that hump; merely showing up and losing close doesn't count.

a third time will get ya laughing.

on good authority that about 22 of those loses were due to lack of support. and he should have a full 11 more wins that came the year after he was fired. the adjusted record should be closer to 100 million - 0.

the podcast once it became the audio version of the mgoblog-RR-revisionist history hour.
Okay Ace - Michigan didn't pony up for Casteel - even assuming you're right, the only reasonable option to that was to hire Greg Robinson and force him to run a 3-3-5? Surely there were more than 2 defensive coordinators in the world in 2009. But nope - everything bad that happened to RR was because the amorphous "We" here at Michigan sabotaged his every move.
