JV makes $20 million a year and Anibal will now be making $16 million so ... advantage JV.

Don't know if this has been mentioned yet, but aren't we the "home" team against Alabama? If so I really doubt we'd even wear white jerseys (regardless of whether they were bumblebees or the normal ones).

Apologize for nothing. Those who stay will be champions. Ohio State blows. Go Blue.

This is a thread of champions.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||You're right, the offense||
You're right, the offense folds against any good Big Ten defense. That's why they slapped up 67 on Illinois and 522 yards on Iowa.

You're right, Pat. A real Michigan team would've won 2-0. There's no room for "Fun Ball" in Ann Arbor.
Also, in the middle of the Lloyd Carr era:

North end zone: The defensive 2-point stop that changed the Rich Rod era.

I believe we're going to beat OSU every year.

We kicked off with 6:55 left and all 3 timeouts.
Doing it at any other time is more of a surprise gamble than anything else and not something you can really analyze.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||I guess I consider awful as||
I guess I consider awful as bad enough to lose the game. 535 yards is pretty absurd, but the defense kept us in the game when the offense couldn't move the ball in the 2nd half. Points allowed are more simply important than yards, even if they don't indicate a team's true performance.
We all know Michigan's defense is not good. I feel that this is a talent/inexperience issue more than anything else and there's really nothing that will fix it but more time. I also don't think they're totally horrendous. Different strokes for different folks, I suppose. Go Blue.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Well, Herron's healthy return||
Well, Herron's healthy return for Big Ten play certainly factors into my conclusion. Also, UMass does have a good offense. FCS or not, they looked a hell of a lot more impressive than Connecticut/Crist-less Notre Dame.
I'm basically trying to express the notion that we're not heading for a total implosion because of one bad game. Michigan's defense wasn't awful through 2 games with Jones/Herron and was in one game without them. Maybe it isn't a coincidence.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||If we go 5-7 Rich Rod is||
If we go 5-7 Rich Rod is probably gone regardless.
But do you really think we'll somehow manage to lose 45-42 seven times?
|2 years 35 weeks ago||I'm not necessarily implying||
I'm not necessarily implying that Herron >>> Banks. What I'm implying is that the drop-off from Herron to Kevin Leach is significant enough that Roh cannot play defensive end. Our pass rush suffers drastically as a result.
This also isn't the only reason the defense struggled; just one that I don't think many people recognized.

I'd flip Knight and Parker in your original post and give Dorsey a 30% chance.

I miss the late 90s.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||A lot of kids previously||
A lot of kids previously apply to and have the early enrollment option for their top 2-3 choices, so something drastic doesn't prevent them from getting a head start on their career.
This isn't slimy at all.

Edwin Baxter? He's playing?
|3 years 20 weeks ago||I don't understand how anyone||
I don't understand how anyone can claim there is a massive gap between OSU and UM when Ohio State only beat Michigan by 11 despite 5 Forcier turnovers and all-around sloppy play by the Wolverines.
Believe it or not, if Olesnavage makes a 24-yard field goal and Tate doesn't throw the interception in the end zone, you're looking at a hypothetical tie game late in the 4th quarter.
A sizable gap, yes. A massive gap? I don't see it.

If Michigan beats Ohio State today, I think I will cry.
I wish I were kidding.

Fuck you, State.

I lost to Illinois and Purdue in my NCAA 10 dynasty, but beat Wisconsin and Ohio State.
So we're in good shape.

This is something I can actually get behind.
One more win and I get to watch meaningful football into the winter months.
Whether it's against those adorable Hawaiians or not remains to be seen.

UM explodes in the 3rd and wins 6-3, sweeping the weekend series.
