|3 days 4 hours ago||My gut||
but they do sum to 8.8
|3 days 4 hours ago||Not even a M00N game?||
However, I expect this to be an M600M game (M-boom).
|3 days 5 hours ago||Opponent Win||
|3 days 5 hours ago||Why do you think it's called||
the Dr Peppers College Football Playoff?
|3 days 5 hours ago||+1 informative||
|3 days 5 hours ago||Actually, the away competition is MUCH worse than||
what we thought in the pre-season.
Preseason, we wouldn't have expected to sweep
Now I do.
Others have begun to say that the MSU game is winnable. Further, MSU's Oregon win looks a lot more pedestrian after Utah destroyed Oregon in Autzen. The home slate, in order of increasing difficulty
Then there's the B1G championship game against an opponent fromt the West that will be weaker than MSU & OSU.
So that's one rabbit out of a hat (OSU), three tough wins, and five taking care of business. Likely? No. But it's no longer crazy talk. Just a very possible long shot.
|3 days 6 hours ago||To me, the biggest question is WWWDW?||
What Would WD Wear?
I'm thinking about ordering this Khaki rainsuit and stenciling on an unsanctioned "M"
|4 days 2 hours ago||She also gave the Lou Holtz halftime address||
for someone who does not usually speak like Lou Holtz.
|4 days 2 hours ago||Then Hagerup told Brandon||
to quit drinking and go to bed.
|4 days 8 hours ago||So Edsall wasn't even partially aware?||
|4 days 9 hours ago||Bowling ball Chesson up to his old tricks in the pic above||
|4 days 10 hours ago||I didn't see it because ABC cut away at 34-0||
|4 days 12 hours ago||The 34-8 score in 97 understated the beatdown||
It was an absolute annihilation. ABC cut away in the fourth quarter as Michigan outgained PSU 416 - 169.
In contrast, the 27-0 1998 score hid a number of missed PSU opportunities/drives into Michigan territory, including a blocked 34 yd FG, a turnover on downs at the Michigan 1, and a missed 32 yd FG, and a drive that stalled at the Michigan 32. While Michigan was clearly the better team, combined with some turnovers, you could play woulda/coulda/shoulda and imagine a close game.
There was no imagining a close game in 1997, even by the most ardent PSU fan.
|4 days 16 hours ago||So have him switch jerseys to, say, #99||
"Yeah, it's me. Mr. Lineman. Yeah. Hi. Just a lumbering lineman, not the best athlete on the field or anything, nothing to be worried about. I'm just here to make your last hours on Earth as peaceful as possible."
|4 days 16 hours ago||Or the Dr Peppers College Football Playoff||
|4 days 16 hours ago||Or hurricane-approaching winds||
I'm going to the game, so please AMHG, don't do it.
|5 days 9 hours ago||Plus, it didn't feel like we scored 3 points in the M00N game||
|6 days 22 min ago||No, this team was built to win last year||
$9.7 million of Suh's prior contracts are counting against the Lions' cap THIS YEAR.
That's a fair amount of talent that could have been added to this team
Worse is Stafford's contract, which is likely the reason the Lions had to mortgage Suh's cap hits into the future, which is why they had to let him go.
|6 days 32 min ago||Suh's prime wasted||
|6 days 1 hour ago||The smart money was saying "take BYU -7.5"||
but taking Michigan and giving the points.
|6 days 1 hour ago||(No subject)||
|6 days 1 hour ago||Part of Cardale's game won't translate to the NFL||
The part where he can pick up a first down whenever there's less than ~7 yds to go by trucking the defender.
That was HUGELY valuable in the college football playoffs and should be again this year. It's not gonna work in the NFL.
|6 days 8 hours ago||Games w/ Potential (or certainty) To Cause Attrition||
from the ranks of those above us in the next two weeks:
|6 days 15 hours ago||Yeah, I'd also discount Ball State as a letdown game||
|6 days 23 hours ago||You just don't understand Charlie Weis||
He doesn't say it explicitly so as not to give it away, but when he says he has a decided schematic advantage he's talking about contract negotiations.
|6 days 23 hours ago||Nope, Utah didn't finish within two scores of Oregon||
|1 week 2 hours ago||We may very well sweep the away B1G games||
• The Turtles are Turrible
Stanley Jackson predicted on the BTN tonight that Michigan would upset either MSU or OSU.

|1 week 1 day ago||Suggestion for a new MMB tradition *||
After Jake Butt scores, the mmb should play "I like Jake Butt, and I cannot lie" at some delayed cue such as the extra point sailing through the uprights.
