Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.

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.
|3 weeks 2 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.

This was actually intended to be a humorous response to a tweet that LSAClassof2000 made earlier today...

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.

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 30 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 use the MGoBlog ipad app almost exclusively. Thanks for your consideration.

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.

...bEcause we do not have to pay them as much to be our punching bag as we do a low FBS team. Thus we keep more of the roughly similar gross revenue. Doesn't make it right , but that is the answer to your question.

Would argue for four touchdowns and one two point conversion.

My son was a classmate and basketball teammate of Gary's at Parchment. I am not qualified to say how successful Gary could be as a football player at Michigan, but I can tell you he is a great young man and I am excited both for him and for U-M.
