What helps us the most is that we will be somewhat better next year, while our 2 rivals will be somewhat worse.
I don't think we will be good enough in 2016 to beat 2015 Ohio State . . . but we won't have to. We only have to be good enough to beat 2016 Ohio State.
I don't have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you.

His 2013 class was insane.
Gonna take a lot to keep up with that.

I learned to avoid the two dollar steak special at Sizzler.

None of those 4 wins are in your lifetime.
|21 hours 32 min ago||But Elliott did not do it||
But Elliott did not do it alone. He had Barrett back there with him. Barrett is excellent at riding that mesh-point and then keeping or giving the ball up at the last micro-second. He had us chasing ghosts. Best I've seen at that since Juice Williams.
Fournette is in a more conventional offense where you can key on him. LSU has not been very productive against decent defenses this year, hence Miles near-death experience.
If we have a healthy Rudock, we can score just enough to win that game.

Let me know.
He never shows up to the Michigan - Ohio State games when we ask for him.

It would be very appealing to get to 10 wins by beating a brand-name SEC team in a New Year's Day bowl game.
If you would have asked us at the beginning of the season if we would take that deal, you would not have even gotten all of the words out of your mouth.
But part of me wants to see us get back on the horse and face our nemesis . . . a good spread team with a running QB. I want to see how Harbaugh and staff adjust with a month to prepare. You know that this is burning them up and they would like to have another shot at it. OSU is very good, but everybody knows this was not our best effort.
|21 hours 53 min ago||That's the thing with a||
That's the thing with a Harbaugh staff . . . they really are very good and you have to expect that they will be sought after at higher levels.
Recruits should expect this coming in. As they should at any elite program.
It does help us a little bit that Mattison is going to stay put, but that is an exception.

Ace's comment on Rivals: I understand wanting to evaluate a prospect in person, but if this is really their methodology, that's a rather huge conflict of interest.
Yeah, that's downright fraud. I used to think of the Rivals rankings as the final word, but no more after that. That's unconscionable.

Elliott holds offers from Alabama . . .
I stopped reading the list after that.

We couldn't tackle.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Yes, our DLine was depleted,||
Yes, our DLine was depleted, and our LBs are under-talented to face this kind of offense run by elite players. This was a perfect storm that no amount of scheme was going to fix it.
We held on as long as we could, but the masking tape and coathanger wires eventually came off and the thing collapsed.
We would lose this game 100 times out of 100 times with the lineup we were able to field on Saturday. It's just where we are right now. Time to move on.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Minny and Indiana exposed us||
Minny and Indiana exposed us on D. Those were games that we could have easily lost, and it would have been a fair result.
9-3 with a near win against MSU, some exciting pull-it-out wins agianst mid-pack teams, blowouts over lesser teams, and getting steamrolled by OSU is an extremely accurate reflection of our season this year. Extremely accurate.
We got a little ahead of ourselves mid-season, but still, winding up 9-3 is an encouraging place to be given what this team looked like last year.
|1 day 18 hours ago||The tackling was a problem,||
The tackling was a problem, but it was a tackling born of lack of talent more than technique.
Our LB's did not have the talent to consistently pursue Barrett / Elliott in any kind of space. This leads to them grasping at passing arms and legs, and getting tired doing it.
Give credit where it is due. OSU is an elite spread offense and you need elite athletes to contain it. Our LBs can be coached up all day, but they just don't have the speed to chase it.
|1 day 18 hours ago||This is good. I want the||
This is good. I want the Michigan coach to be pissed about getting blown out by Ohio State.
it always bothered me how complacent Rich Rod and Hoke seemed after losses like this. Where was the urgency?
This result sucked, and it is a result that Harbaugh will not let stand. Period.

Always the risk with a big recruiting weekend against a rival.
Coaches are used to it though . . . "We really need you at that spot. You'd be that missing piece we need. We need a baller like you"
|2 days 2 hours ago||Hell, I'd take Hill for no||
Hell, I'd take Hill for no other reason than he could give our D a good look at an elite running QB in practice. You know, do something every day in practice to prepare for Ohio State like Bo did.

Ohio State is not getting in.
You're the best team in the country to watch the Playoff on TV. Just like the rest of us.
Maybe they'll make you a ring or something.

He already knows how to beat MSU. He basically did it already. He does need to work on OSU though.
|2 days 3 hours ago||We compete with ND for the||
We compete with ND for the "Winningest Program of All Time" title.
We lead in total number of wins (but we've played longer), they lead in the more accurate winning percentage (which we used to lead until Hoke imploded).
It is a big deal. It's painted on the side of our equipment trucks.
Every ND loss is a big deal, and a good thing for us.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Oh, well. Fuck Ohio||
Oh, well. Fuck Ohio State.
They'll get to be the best team in the country to watch the Playoffs on TV.
|2 days 14 hours ago||They are the luckiest||
They are the luckiest motherfuckers in history.
They "beat" us on a one-in-a-million fluke. Then they get OSU on the one single day a year where the weather and Meyer's brain combine to form an inexplicable soggy bog.
OSU would have killed them today. And so would we.
But instead, they are going to play for the fucking NC (after Iowa finds some way to gift them the Big Ten championship game, of course).
They are 2012 ND, times two.

With freshman / inexperienced QBs.
|2 days 14 hours ago||And that's why Harbaugh is||
And that's why Harbaugh is here . . . to fix that. He de-facto did fix it against MSU with a team that went 5-7 last year. OSU shows he has a long way to go, but he is moving in the right direction.
|2 days 14 hours ago||We'll have to seriously||
We'll have to seriously upgrade the LB position to be favored to win the Big Ten next year. Meyer and his string of top ten recruiting classes are not going to just go away.

I really hope Harbaugh can get him a good long look in the NFL.
