the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

1979 Football Team - (9-0) Only team in school history that will have an undefeated team until a team goes undefeated and wins the state title.
1983 Football Team - (9-0) Lost in the first round which would be the district finals today. Holds the school record for the fewest points scored against a Saline team = 38 points for the season.
1990 Football Team - (9-0) Lost in the first round of the playoffs. Most offensive yards for a team until the 200?(Coach Glennis's) team.
1988 Football Team - (8-1) Lost 1st game of the playoffs.
1985 Football Team - (8-1) Lost 1st game of the regular season on a fathom TD. Won the first round against the #1 ranked team in one poll. Second round lost to another #1 ranked team in another poll/they went on to be the State Champions.
1981 Football Team - (8-1) Didn't qualify for the playoffs/old point system.

I agree, Magnus - even Coach Palka said he thought the team overachieved. I think a lot of people will be interested in to what extent he can build the program to maintain such success.
In re: Tater, though, I'm not sure a seven-point loss sealed by a late interception against the defending state champs qualifies as having nothing left in the tank.

Saline seats around 4,000, maybe a few more.
In my totally biased opinion, the highlight of the stadium experience is Saline's version of Carl Grapentine: Jere Hassberger, the incredible AP calc/physics teacher, former wrestling coach, and doctor in nuclear engineering via U-M.

Glennie wasn't so bad, and he cared about the community and his job teaching phys ed quite a bit. He also oversaw the new weightroom installation, making sure Saline had great equipment and a balanced conditioning program mainly centered on BFS.

Persistent health issues (back) forced him to give up football after a couple years at MSU.
|27 weeks 21 hours ago||in re: greatest Saline football teams...||
I had some correspondence with Saline legend Jack Crabtree a few years ago as part of a project for the SHS newspaper examining the greatest sports seasons in school history. On a whim, I dug through the old email box and found his rankings (this was 2007, but no team between then and now would come close anyway). Direct words of Crabtree:
FWIW, the SHS newspaper staff wound up going with the early 90s girls golf dynasty (threepeat state champs, IIRC) as #1 for all sports.

Awesome Infinite Jest reference, though given Brian's love for DFW that almost seems like brown nosing.

My understanding is that your calculations toss away plays where one team has a solid lead, figured by a sliding scale between time and margin, and that this is to compare only truly competitive situations of first team vs. first team. However, this method obviously must sometimes truncate plays that are still representative of competitive play, such as early in the third quarter last Saturday when U-M still had their first offense against the first Illinois defense. In an ideal world where time isn't an issue and you crunch stats all day, would you like to include more of those truncated plays?

But why not buy both and sell the extra again? Even if you sell it on gameday for face value, that's not so bad.

I know it seems too good to be true, but if you check out the video for this one, it definitely starts as Borges is saying "awful." Which would fit with last year's game being awful, referenced by way of metamorphosis, and all the way back...
So either the initial stuff is real, or Heiko came up with a brilliant way to lead into the single word he knew would get left at the beginning of a rough cut of the presser.

Ace, can you comment on the seemingly rather severe dropoff in average talent from the top three classes to everyone else? Does it pass your "eye test," and how much of that represents accumulated effects of ratings bumps for guys who commit to U-M, ND, or OSU?

I agree in re: run blocking. Pass pro was good even last week (though partially because of Bama's contain strategy). But the AF DL are all 260 lbs or fewer; one would hope Michigan could overpower them. It'll also be interesting to see in UFR if Fitz missed holes or if there weren't any for him.

Nice differentiation of possible poll purposes--Brian's written about this some time ago, when he was running the BlogPoll. IMO, the best thing about the BlogPoll is simply that it has a guideline, namely to be "resume-based" or reflection what has happened, as opposed to the AP/Coaches which both arouse endless confusion on whether they're prognostic or diagnostic (personally, I think SOMEONE in the MSM knows this and wants it to stay that way, because more confusion=more articles by different people=more commenting=more ad revenue online).
