Let's be clear here: McCaffrey conducting business to look out for himself here isn't even in the same stratosphere as the way Brandon conducted business at Michigan.

Not a single hold, not a single defensive pass interference, no late hits, no unsportsmanlike shoving, nothing. Not a single goddamn call across 4 quarters and 2 OTs. Every bounce and every call went against Michigan. The world is a cruel, unforgiving place and as such I'll never let go of the resentment and hatred I feel today nor the anguish I feel for these Michigan players.

I, too, hope that it will be their best defensive performance agaisnt OSU in 20 years.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Hard for me to get excited||
Hard for me to get excited about fancystats (which I normally love doing) with the lack of a starting QB. Only chance Michigan has is to have the defense play their best game of the year, keep OSU under 20 and create some short field opportunities off turnovers or special teams.

I would love for the committee to go away and for conference titles to be a playoff quarterfinals. That sounds amazing.

This is as easy of a top 4 as there will ever be, no idea why the CFP committee didn't get it right last week. If you have anyone other than the 4 undefeated power-4 conference leaders then the playoff is a sham.

For perspective, the 1997 national championship team never scored more than 38 points in a game and averaged 26.8 points per game.

Today pretty much confirmed MSU played their best game of the year against Michigan. But that's what it takes to lose with dignity.

I'm still on the hunt for 4 club tickets for Illinois, paying well!

Is there a way to go about finding Jack Roth Club seat tickets? I'm taking my wife and two daughters to their first Michigan game ever at the Big House for Illinois and I want to splurge to make the experience as awesome and memorable as possible.

These guys are something special. I just hope they get to reap the reward of a win against OSU in November.

I would like to see a UFR of the 1997 Notre Dame, Iowa, Penn State, or Wisconsin games.
Obvious parallels on defense but honestly I feel like the offense is even more close to what Michigan had that year (Speight=Griese, Butt=Tuman, Darboh=Streets, Smith=Howard), it was a plodding, boring offense that never seemed to be dominant throwing or running but turned in just enough plays every week to win.

I've been distracted by football, will this be the year LeVert finally breaks out of his injury slump and carries the team to a deep tourney run?

YMRMFSPA: 1997 Brian Griese

Brian Griese (11 games): 175-277, 63.2%, 7.4ypa, 2,042yd, 14td, 5int
Look familiar? Speight is literally the exact same QB as Griese was in '97. I remember not being super inspired by his play that year. He'd hit a wide open Jeremy Tuman (TE) and drop in the occasional bomb to Tai Streets and the rest of the time he was totally pedestrian.
It's almost scary how many parallels there are with that team.
|17 weeks 1 hour ago||Eric Mayes||
Senior safety on the '97 team that went down in the fourth game of that year (Indiana, I believe?). He wasn't a superstar but definitely an emotional leader that the team rallied around, eventually carrying him off the field on their shoulders after beating Ohio State enroute to the national title.
Not a parallel I would have wished for, but in addition to playing Colorado, having a game-changing two-way heisman candidate, a vanilla offense with some great wideouts and a statue-esque boring QB, and an utterly dominant defense things are feeling eerily like 1997 around here.

OSU UFR is another small sign in the tea leaves that the stars are aligning for something special in 2016...

The football uniforms with the basketball player on them hit a grand slam! Wooooo, free Papa John's for everyone!
|25 weeks 6 hours ago||I think the most hilarious||
I think the most hilarious part is watching the presumptive poll movement. Let's say Rutgers does go on a tear and somehow... wins 7 games in a row (6 of which are apparently in the top 25)... that only jumps them from 25th to 16th.
I mean, they obviously think highly of the Big Ten having all but one of their conference games against ranked opponents (including Minnesota and Maryland, lol).
This is great comic relief.

My body is ready. I'm full on the hype train. Cannot wait to kick-off. I'm totally buying into the dream. Let's do this!!

If there was one decade and a half long stretch of football in my lifetime I woudln't want to review, that'd be it.

Article link says neither was a projected starter for this year so which is it, was the Evans guy an All Big Ten d-lineman or a backup?
