"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."

Before the season, if you had to pick one conference to have four teams in the top 10, and the other conference to have one team in the top 10, I bet most people would have mixed up the SEC and the B1G.

That comment may rival Michigan's defense for the weakest thing of the night. JB will get lots of mileage out of this game to improve his team.

I read most of his post as arguing incompetence, not malice. "A pile of dumb calls", as you aptly put it, is indeed incompetence in my book. I'll grant you no proof of malice, even if he won't, and still insist that incompetence should be dealt with.

I cast an enthusiastic vote for 2015, too. I also remember reading about seemingly scads of non-coach additions to the film breakdown team. I'd love to hear an update on that and how they contribute to the process of making this team so much more prepared.

I guess by definition the items posted on the front page are on topic, but it sure seems like this one is OT by any reasonable measure. Or maybe it's just me that doesn't care about Notre Dame and everything related to them.

Whisper is that Smith has a turf toe, not ankle issue. That would be good news.

In other words the favorite is always listed as -n and/or the underdog is always listed as +n. Both mean the same thing. You can think of choosing the favorite and "giving" the underdog n points to add to their score to see who wins the bet.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Basically you are correct.||
Basically you are correct. If you see a line like Michigan -34, that means you can bet on Michigan to win by at least 34 and "give" the points, or UNLV and "take" the points. A .5 line is used to break ties, e.g. If a line is Michigan -7 and they win by exactly 7 that is a "push" where neither side wins money (or depending on rules the "house" may win ties).

Because it smells. Seriously, do a google search on "why does ohio" and see the top answers.

My wife's undergrad was from MSU, and MBA from ND. Fortunately (in this respect) she is not much of a sports fanatic.

Seth, I didn't intend to call you or MGoBlog out in any way and I am sorry if that is how I came across. I do appreciate you using your platform to raise these issues and meant to amplify that.

So you won't be surprised if Harbaugh pulls some surprises, or you won't be surprised if there are no surprises?

Not win the BTT, but get A BTT win.

The basketball team is "mediocre" this year BECAUSE (in part) Beilein is a great coach and improved so many players so much that they made the NBA early, creating a bit of an unexpected down period this year.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||I attest||
I made this one last weekend. After earlier posts, I navigated to MMMGoBluBBQ 's site and thought this one was a winner. It was.
Next time I will add a few more peppers and onions. But it was really good.

To quote the Boss: "you ain't a beauty but hey you're all right". Any win this time of year is a good win.

Not to be THAT guy, but I don't want to tempt KenPom fates.
If you are predicting the same thing as KenPom, shouldn't it be Michigan by 9 (based on the essentials block).
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Reverse Bets?||
This is a naive question, but can you bet the other side of these futures bets? For example, bet on Sparty not to win the title and get 1:10 odds? THAT seems like a bet worth considering.

Remember when we were concerned whether U-M could go 10-8 in the B1G in order to qualify for the tournament? Ya, me neither.

I consume most of my mGo content on my iPad; while I like the idea of providing the background context in a non-obtrusive way, the mouse over doesn't work so well on the iPad app.

The tickets must be redeemed by the student at the bowl site and are non-transferable.
