|3 days 2 hours 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.

The football uniforms with the basketball player on them hit a grand slam! Wooooo, free Papa John's for everyone!

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?

Tulsa is a slightly better version of Northwestern (sans seven footer), which I think bodes well for Michigan.

VCU is relatively safe in the field even with a loss here though this might push them to a First Four game in Dayton.

The Bracket Matrix updates lag behind and Michigan in the latest matrix. It would be a complete shock to not be in the field at this point.

Relax and chill out until tonight when we end up as the 9-seed in Kansas' pod
|28 weeks 4 days ago||This is standard||
Lunardi's picks all year long are all over the map and never make much sense. Then selection Sunday he moves things to align with reality so that he (along with 90% of bracket prognosticators with a brain) will correctly guess 66+ of the teams in the field.

100% in the field, toss-up whether or not we will have a first four game or not.
Michigan compares favorably to the following other bubble teams: Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Temple, Butler, Monmouth and Syracuse.
Michigan will be in the field, possibly the last bye given and you can count on Jay Bilas and gang hemming and hawing all week about "undeserving" Michigan.

Brian, which is/was a bigger pet peeve - refusing to throw bubble screens and take free yards or two first half foul autobench? Inquiring minds...

The only two games I see as near-guarantee losses are @Iowa and @Maryland, every other game Michigan *should* have a fighting chance or be favored.

Michigan should finish the first half of big ten play at 7-2, but it's hard for me to even count two "likely wins' in the second half (only @Minnesota looks like a win).

Penn State played Indiana without their starting QB or RB. I wonder if those two players were any good?
They lost to Northwestern.
They got clobbered by four touchdowns against OSU.
They squeaked by Maryland by one point.
While they may be a talented team, their resume does not instill the same fear or worry that Indiana or MSU did or OSU does. Michigan will take care of business.
|45 weeks 1 day ago||Wagner||
My thought is take a gamble on Mo Wagner's upside. Play him as many minutes as possible to start the season and hope he develops into something resembling a mini-McGary to compliment Doyle. Donnal has looked atrocious.
All the positions 1-4 on the lineup and coming off the bench look terrific but making a run in the Big Ten or to the NCAAs won't happen without some talent emerging at the 5 and it's not coming from Donnal.

Don't forget the hit by Northwestern player on Rudock's helmet in the first half that was initially called targetting then OVERTURNED BY REPLAY.
