Interesting to see Peppers taking a handoff during the Glasgow section.

Feel free to delete if this is not kosher. Just thought some might miss that aspect of the photo.

My thoughts exactly.
Michigan's D has been dominant, but many of their best performances have come against inexperienced or bad QBs. That said, I can't imagine there will be a monumental drop off or anything.
I believe MSU's O-Line is pretty injured, so I expect the D-Line to get plenty of penetration and make life difficult for Cook. However, Cook is probably the best passing QB Michigan will have faced this season. I think Durkin and Co. can definitely game plan, etc. but don't be surprised if Michigan gives up more big plays and actual points this coming weekend.
I still favor Michigan in this game, though.

|36 weeks 4 days ago||The Big Ten Conference||
Nebraska already has a Big Ten feel to them that I can't imagine Maryland or Rutgers will ever have. So I wouldn't care in the slightest if Rutgers or Maryland left, though it's doubtful it would happen for many of the reasons already given by other posters.
In any case, I'd be happiest with a 12 team conference. 6 team divsions, and an 8 game conference schedule would ensure each team would play its 5 division opponents each year, and non-division opponents would go one year at the most without playing each other.
Today's divisions are swelling to the size of entire conferences of the past. At what point does it even feel like a cohesive conference anymore?
However, additional teams might be necessary to compete against the SEC, ACC, and PACxx.
From a pure 'feel' perspective I think Notre Dame, Pitt, and Cincinnati are intriguing.
ND - Obvious regional fit, tradition, etc. however, it seems like Notre Dame would just join the ACC if they had to join somewhere for football. For now, it seems like they would avoid a CFP snub if deserving, and as such they don't seem to "need" a conference.
Pitt - Pitt makes sense from a geographic perspective since it's not a new state, could again be a power, and it would give PSU an in-state rival. I'm not an expert on Pitt's academics, but they seem to be strong.
Cincinnati - I feel like OSU gets an unfair recruiting advantage by being the only show in town (state). Cincinnati would never have the cache of OSU, but lesser teams than Cincinnati have risen to prominence. I doubt Cincinatti's academics are all that great, but I haven't looked into it.

Morris has thrown 0 TDs and 5 INTs on 87 career passing attempts. But he has never thrown 3 in one game.

|1 year 30 weeks ago||The issue for a lot of people||
The issue for a lot of people is whether or not a good hire is possible with Brandon. Given his "hands on" approach, I can't blame legit candidates for looking elsewhere or for staying put. We'll see what happens if DB is still aboard when the next coaching search begins.

The idea of raising awareness is that by spending money making more people aware, the amount of money raised will be more than that which was spent on the promotional materials, i.e. pink jerseys
