McGary and Varejao have a lot of similarities. About the same size, both high-energy players, neither has much of an outside shot and both are below-average FT shooters. McGary has a higher ceiling, I think, because he is going to eventually pack on a little more muscle and be able to be a more physical defender, plus he can handle the ball better.

Michigan beat Kansas State and Pitt, currently ranked 10th and 16th respectively, at a neutral site. Both are looking like 4/5 seeds. If you want to argue that they weren't ranked at the time, then I'll bring up the win at Minnesota.
Winning on the road is tough, especially when teams make half court heaves. Ask Duke, who had a similar experience at Miami. Or Indiana with Illinois. Or Florida with Arkansas. I'm fairly sure that Michigan is the only team in the country whose losses are all to currently ranked teams, and it is pretty rare that a team plays 4 straight games during the regular season against top 20 teams. By contrast, msu was coming off games against Illinois, Minnesota, and purdue, two of which were at home. Michigan just looked tired. The time off, especially being somewhat bookended by penn state games (like a vacation in itself), is going to be a big help, as will having the two toughest games left at home.

Say what you will about Oregon's uniforms; at least I can read the numbers on tv.
|30 weeks 6 days ago||Pretty sure they did it right||
Same thing happened at the end of the 3rd quarter in the UTL game last year, which is why the Hopkins fumble/Denard TD was the first play of the 4th quarter.
Weird that it makes it possible to run a minute or more off the clock. Imagine if a team is leading by 2 with the ball deep in their own end, 3rd down, and 1:15 left. They end up just short on the next play and will have to punt with about 30 seconds left, enough time for their opponents to get into FG range. Just before the snap for the punt, the booth wants to review the spot. The call is upheld, and the clock starts again with a new play clock. Time runs out without a play.

Imagine if they brought in Vincent Smith with them. Brent Musburger's head would explode.

Also, it's amazing that Posey amassed 10% of the receiving part of the Ohio offense, given that he only played in a quarter of the games.
|44 weeks 5 days ago||The 2012 team would win by a mile.||
Most of the guys from the 1992 team are in their 50's. It wouldn't even be fair.
|50 weeks 1 day ago||Calm down, and||
go with the phloem.
|50 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed.||
That was the one that jumped out at me as well. I also see the Nebraska game as more of a pick 'em. While that game should have been much closer if Nebraska could stop fumbling kickoffs, I think Michigan would certainly be favored in a neutral-site game.
|1 year 2 days ago||No.||
Well, I would put Vandenberg ahead of Martinez and Scheelhaase, especially if you're talking about passers, but the B1G has a lot of running QBs and not many passing ones. Maybe the spread CAN work in this conference...
|1 year 3 days ago||There's something wrong with this post.||
Can't put my finger on it though.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Maybe we should pull Hunwick.||
Go 6 on 3. Apparently 5 isn't enough.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Wow.||
That is a gongshow call.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Gotta take advantage.||
Cornell is doing a bunch of stupid stuff, and they have to pay for it. And now De Swardt is done, so yay.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||wow.||
That would have been an unbelievable ending to the Ohio-UNC game.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||OT: D.J. Cooper is awesome.||
OT: D.J. Cooper is awesome.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Nice reffing.||
I like how the ref that was 10 feet from the play thought it was fine, but the one that was halfway down the ice called the penalty.
EDIT: the replay shows the ref shaking his head as if to say "no, that's not a penalty." Gongshow.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||And that's two!||
I thought this would be tougher.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO||
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Lowell in big trouble.||
Have to play the last 3:30 of regulation defending a 5 minute major. Good luck with that. Just lose quick so I can watch Michigan in HD.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||All tied up now.||
Miami has come all the way back. Hard to see them losing with all this momentum.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||holy crap.||
Miami scores twice in about 15 seconds. Now 3-2 Lowell.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Plenty of fans there.||
They're just dressed like empty seats.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Wow.||
Must have been a high stick.
EDIT: the net was dislodged? That's a terrible call. Also, you'd think the ref standing RIGHT BEHIND THE NET would have noticed it. I guess the CCHA hasn't cornered the market on derpy officials.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||NCAA is cracking down this year.||
Hits to the head are a point of emphasis. The Union player had his back to Chelios and his head down; he was defenseless. Chelios finished the hit and drove the Union player's head into the boards. This is exactly what the NCAA is trying to prevent, and the 5 minute majors for stuff like this have been pretty common. I wasn't sure if they'd give him the game DQ, but it wasn't surprising.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Common myth.||
The part about Fulmer is correct, but Michigan still would have lost if he voted Michigan second. Nebraska had 2 more first-place votes, but 4 more overall points. The discrepancy comes from Fulmer.
Note: this does not make Fulmer any less of an ass.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Not at all.||
Once the umpire signaled for time to start, it took about a second and a half for Leaf to even snap the ball. The exact same thing happened to Wisconsin in this year's Rose Bowl. The only way you can snap and down a ball in only one second is to have the center snap the ball immediately upon the official starting the clock, and that absolutely did not happen.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Michigan.||
|1 year 9 weeks ago||I don't think so.||
Should be Northeast (BC) vs. West (UND), and East (Union) vs. Midwest (Michigan).
