the team that lost 45-17 to Illinois, even playing? I thought that the season-ending-mercy-rule was applied to teams losing by 28 to Illinois.

I AM optimistic about next year. Not so much about the 2013 season.

2008 Toledo was ranked #134 by Sagarin versus #95 Michigan. A loss to Akron would have been close to an all-lifetime-worst lost, and surely an all-lifetime upset/differential.

So by that view, there's been a drop off, but we're not yet in the clubhouse. Not nearly as bad as 2010-2011, and nothing back-to-back (which is really causing the current O-Line problems), and nothing that a 2014 10-2 won't fix.

Something along those lines is fair game.
"Then I think to myself that maybe people in the south just need a secondary hobby."
Now you're lumping everyone in the South into a stereotype. I don't think that's helpful, and as you can see, something attracted some posters on this board to live down there.

2014 Michigan Football Schedule
So we're going 0-5 on the road next year, with losses to Rutgers and NW. Riiiiggght.

Devin with time versus Devin running for his life
|3 days 4 hours ago||You asked...|
|3 days 4 hours ago||That has to be put off until 2015||
both because of the crappy slate of 2014 games and the 7-5 record this year.
If you've got good seats, you are to be shaken for money in 2015.
|3 days 4 hours ago||If we see what we saw this year, Brian will need a new server||
I'm hoping that Al & Co can field a competent offense given a vastly improved interior line. No more Devin getting beat up with 7-10 sacks a game, not to mention the additional hits he took.
The coaching staff and team have to go out and make it happen. I think Brady deserves two more years to get his recruits in place as seniors. Let's see what these recruiting classes can do when they've got experience and strength training. But, holy hell, another 7-5 year would sure throw a wrench in that projection.
|3 days 4 hours ago||2014 Michigan Football||
Going 7-0 at home and at least 3-2 on the road seems like a very achievable goal (10-2).
|3 days 4 hours ago||Ohio had an uninterrupted pipeline of talented recruiting classz||
One year, it's Tressel signing a class coming off a BCS win against Arkansas, the next year it's Urban Meyer who was hired on Nov 28, 2011. A mere blip in recruiting. Fickell clearly was in over his head, but he never presided over a signing day.
RichRod's classes, on the other hand, were trending downward, and so today Hoke is dealing with the three-star 2010 smorgasbord and the near-disaster 2011 class, which Hoke had to mitigate given only three weeks from his Jan 11, 2011 hiring date.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Hoke is a delegator/CEO-type coach||
and so what he brings to the table is his ability to identify and attract quality coordinators.
If Hoke believes Borges is the best man for the job, then that's the horse upon which Hoke should ride into battle.
If Hoke is no good at picking an OC, then that seems to rise to the level of fatal flaw. What would make you confident in his alternate pick?
We shall see w/ results on the field. IMO, Hoke gets two more years so he is playing with seniors he recruited. (More than the three week haul he pulled off in 2011.) But if we go 7-5 next year, his seat is hotter-than-hell going into 2015. (Not.Gonna.Happen.)
|3 days 5 hours ago||Would it be any different w/ a newly constructed staff @ 7-5?||
"We went 7-5, but at least fans got to bathe in the firing of some of the staff."
(BTW, we're not going 7-5 next year.)
|3 days 9 hours ago||But Hoke must have or should have been involved in||
the decision to "just play for the FG" against Penn State.

The title should read, "Mattison and defense at the game?"
