He'll go late first round. Jourdan Lewis is a much better pick, he'll go first half of the first round. I love all Michigan players, but Jourdan Lewis was really the star of that secondary, somehow an underrated player. He'll have an excellent NFL career!

In that scenario I believe we would have won the East because we would have had the tiebreaker in the three way tie between us PSU and ohio.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I see these kind of comments||
I see these kind of comments all the time on all sorts of graphs. But I just don't understand -- the y-axis is clearly labeled, so how is it misleading? We make those visual adjustments all the time and use zoom all the time on cameras, while watching tv, etc. Is a slow motion replay that zooms strongly into the play to show a controversial call because it makes the ball look the size of the entire screen, is that misleading? Is a high school graduation headshot photo misleading because it leaves out 90% of someones body?
No, the contexts are clear like it is with this y-axis. We are zoomed into the 80-100 ratings zone for a closer look, what's misleading about that? A chart that went from zero to 100 and made everything look bunched together would be both less useful and misleading because the gap between a 3-9 State team and Michigan's recruiting is actually quite large.

The game is more important than postseason football. Nothing is more important than being ohio. Once you understand that, you will realize why you people are so hostile to your question.

This thread is bad and OP should feel bad about it.
|7 weeks 8 hours ago||Nobody's saying he is a 'B'||
Nobody's saying he is a 'B' coach -- we're saying he had a B season and we're looking forward to improvement when his results revert to the mean.
|7 weeks 8 hours ago||Nobody's arguing he was||
Nobody's arguing he was anything short of the perfect hire or that we could ever consider letting go of him. But I'm certain Harbaugh himself would agree that 3 losses in his second season is at best a B- for him. Doesn't mean he didn't do his best job, but sometimes the smartest and most hard-working students get less than excellent results.
If you give him an A++, I feel that's insulting to Harbaugh. That means you wouldn't expect him to do better than falling short of the conference title! I'm certain better seasons are to come, and if that's the case, you simply can't give him an A+ right now.

That's not rational - you're succumbing to the "i want to believe im rational by being contrarian" emotion.
Ohio is our biggest direct competitor in recruiting -- that's rational.

I'm just a Michigan fan giving my honest opinion. I'm sorry you feel reading it was a waste of time.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||These "lol rutgers" threads||
These "lol rutgers" threads are pathetic. Why any Michigan fan feels the need to spend time thinking about them is a sad reflection on our fan base. They're a bad team, I get it. I don't want them in the conference either but it says a lot about the dissatisfaction with our season that so many fans feel the need to dump on them.
We got a great recruit, it's a good story. That a really poor football program wishes they could have had him is not a story. Michigan fans are making rutgers a rival and it's pathetic.

Looking at the four factors when CA is on offense: it's sad we have a below average defense. I'm all for unbalanced, exciting teams -- whether an amazing offense or defense at the expense of the other. But if we want to compete for titles, we should at least be average in our weaker aspect.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||I think it's important to||
I think it's important to ignore non-conference games for the purposes of the conference champion. That said, they should just get rid of the divisions, just rotate through opponents on a 10-game conference schedule (respecting rivalries, etc.) and then have a championship game between numbers 1 and 2 overall in the conference.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||What about the effect on||
What about the effect on other players? Are there different guards and wings who get more minutes alongside one or the other.
Mo might be doing a good job on his own man, but maybe Donnal's help defense opens up more matchup opportunities at the other positions?

Harbaugh is getting $9M this year.
edit: that's partially a 2M retroactive raise from last year, so he will be getting 7M going forward. Youre right.

It's just the QB passer rating for the stats listed.
Basically, the interception numbers are the difference, but I agree with you Lewis has the better stats, it just doesn't mathematically equal a lower qb rating.

Is it actually "clinching" if you win the division on the last day? That's just winning it. Clinching implies there are games left to play but the division is already decided.

it's actually pretty pathetic how much we talk about that football team on this blog. we have a great football team in national championship contention, it's not like we don't have plenty to talk about without bashing rutgers. . .

I was a sophomore who knew nothing about Michigan football until I got to campus the year before. Bo's death was the first time I ever cried about someone I never met.

I just don't think exceeding expectations has anything to do with the defintion of hamper. If you run a race and set a personal record with an injured hamstring, you were still hampered. Same thing here. The OL has exceeded expectations in spite of being hampered.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Well, we lost our starting LT||
Well, we lost our starting LT to injury for the season . . . Yeah, if we're #2 team in the country overall, and our rush offense is #15, then it is, in fact, a weak point for our team relatively to the high standard set by our season so far. Hampered doesn't mean "bad", it just means not quite as good as it could have been, and with the Newsome injury and the not quite totally figured out rotation, our rushing offense is just that.

PFF basically is doing the UFR for every team in the country for every game. Imo,I think UFR is much more accurate for michigan, but mgoblog ufr simply doesnt exist for any other school. So in those cases, PFF is the best we can do to the extent we havent watched every snap of every other team.

You can estimate max speed achieved at ~25m iirc from my high school track day and maybe just assume constant accelaration?
