|20 hours 10 min ago||This will be the first UFR I've looked forward to reading||
in far too long.
|21 hours 14 min ago||It's been replaced||
by Jamie Morris' new show. Sam was a guest. No Tom Beaver, so at least it has that going for it.
|23 hours 40 min ago||I wonder if||
anyone has stats for the actual time of posession? Not using the game clock, that's always struck me as a clumsy way to show anything. I'd expect the number of plays run to generally have a closer correlation than anything else.
|1 day 1 hour ago||You're allowed to be happy, but||
you have to draw a line somewhere. Comments that appear to be celebrating the severity of an injury cross that line. They show a lack of class from the poster and from a board that tolerates it.
|1 day 11 hours ago||I must be confused about what happens at factories.||
This one has a disassembly line?
|1 day 17 hours ago||9 kickoffs and 1 punt. I like||
9 kickoffs and 1 punt. I like that ratio.
|2 days 17 hours ago||Have we ever not had some attrition?||
When it happens every year, it's a lot safer to recruit like it's going to happen again. As the season goes on, the coaches will have a better handle on who and how much is likely.

|2 days 20 hours ago||Woo hoo!||
|2 days 21 hours ago||They didn't just say it,||
they went to all of his games last season.
|2 days 21 hours ago||It's not just helping their rankings,||
but their recruiting as well. We're doing well, but the lure of playing in the SEC is a factor for a lot of recruits.
|3 days 3 hours ago||Congratulations to Rutgers.||
That's a great start to their Big Ten tenure. This could a big season for building their program. They could do well if they can just keep a lot of the local talent at home. Joining the Big Ten was a big first step. Looking like a credible team instead of a doormat is the next. Too early to say they are, of course. They don't need to be good, just look like they're on the way up.
I find it interesting that there hasn't been a single mention of Mike Leach in this thread.
|3 days 18 hours ago||After he retires,||
there are going to be awards named for him.

|4 days 18 hours ago||This isn't going to make Hoke||
rethink his new policy on naming captains.
|5 days 2 hours ago||I don't really agree.||
Magnuson was in the two-deep for all of 2012 and redshirted. Braden barely played last year, despite everything. OL is a position group that typically doesn't see much, if any, rotation. I will grant you this doesn't look like a typical season.
I should also add that Magnuson missed spring practice and spent the second half of last season at guard. If the plan is to plug him in at LT, I'd think he could use a lot of reps there.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Unless Cole really struggles Saturday,||
I expect to see him at LT against ND. If Magnuson is a better LT, then why give him so many reps at LG and burn Cole's redshirt for just one game against a cupcake? I know you don't take any opponents lightly, but I'm hoping the plan is for a minimal amount of shuffling.
|5 days 13 hours ago||My favorite John Cooper story||
is that he only called the plays two games a year, vs us and in the bowls. Worked out well for him.
|5 days 15 hours ago||I don't think the last game||
I don't think the last game was on the board at all.
|5 days 16 hours ago||I would never claim to know the whole story.||
But I don't understand how Rice could prevent the video from being released.
|5 days 20 hours ago||I don't wear straw hats.||
I don't wear straw hats.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Except that's not what you said, caps notwithstanding.||
You just threw pulling his scholarship out there as a possibilty you didn't like. No mention of that being a surprise or of Michigan's track record. Using negative hypotheticals is a common way to impugn someone without actually accusing them of anything.
|5 days 21 hours ago||Not sure what you were looking at.||
Their OL has 133 starts between them.
|5 days 23 hours ago||Why add a negative hypothetical?||
This coaching staff and school already have a clear track record on honoring commitments.
|6 days 2 hours ago||It works well in real life.||
So why not on the internet?
|6 days 3 hours ago||Considering that he only mentioned Bosch||
as the backup LG, I think that depth chart was out of date as soon as Kalis got back to practice. I'll be very surprised if Kalis doesn't start on Saturday.
|6 days 13 hours ago||If your standard for elite RBs||
is elite in the NFL, then how many does all of CFB produce? One every 4 or 5 years? It's an impossible standard for any team to meet. I'm not sure why you would put Morris and Hart ahead of guys like Wheatley and Thomas. They were all elite college level RBs. Mostly they were top ranked recruits too. The difference was we sometimes had more than one on the roster at the same time. They don't go #17 and #8 in successive drafts just because the line made them look good.
|6 days 14 hours ago||It sounds exactly the same.||
RR named official captains at the end of the season his first two years. He went to the more traditional system his final season..
|6 days 15 hours ago||Funchess didn't just get moved to TE.||
He spent the entire conference season there. That's okay. I'll bet he's still be called a TE in most of the NFL draft analysis.
|6 days 18 hours ago||It means he's got a backup plan.||
That's probably a good idea, better than having Saban find him a job at Home Depot..
