|1 day 1 hour ago||Especially early in the season||
when there is a lot of value in playing real games and identifying The Kinks.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Games started at 1PM throughout at least the first half||
of Bo's tenure.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Which QB has the Rusty Staub-like wheels||
and thus is sure to be completely disregarded once he throws the initial pass?
|2 days 2 hours ago||Bingo||
If there is easy money to made by the smart money, it will be made, thus gross mispricings should be corrected by the demand of the smart money.
But if that easy money has to overcome the vig, then that leaves room for some mispricing before it becomes profitable for the smart money to go against the "dumb masses". But then again, the smart money will be shopping around for a minimal vig in addition to the dumbest line.
|2 days 17 hours ago||In previous years, Sagarin would disclose whether he considered||
the data to be "fully connected" or not. Prior to being "fully connected", his rankings would be based on a preseason ranking, the weight of which would decline each week until he could jettison it when the data became "fully connected".
I'm pretty sure at this stage of the season, the data is not "fully connected".
|2 days 22 hours ago||Nah, I'd rather not schedule Eastern Michigan||
|3 days 10 hours ago||It was Elvis Grbac joining Matt Leinart, Heath Schuler & The Boz||
in going back to college.
|3 days 10 hours ago||I'm not thankful that Butt is back||
|3 days 10 hours ago||What's weird is that Mora wore a Colts pullover that day|
|4 days 9 hours ago||I self-diagnosed myself as having a condition of sober||
earlier this evening.
Luckily, I knew the antidote for it.
|4 days 12 hours ago||I got both of those punishments as a youngster||
|5 days 15 hours ago||Fire Mike Gittleson!||
(This is the Lincoln shot thread, after all.)
|6 days 9 hours ago||Umm...I don't think season ticket prices have tanked||
|6 days 9 hours ago||Miley Cyrus is also a spread master||
but that doesn't mean I'd want her coaching at Michigan.
|6 days 9 hours ago||If you go to the games,||
your financial support most certainly goes to the athletic department.
|6 days 9 hours ago||Those who stay...||
will be in Chapter 11 if BrandOn has his way.
|6 days 9 hours ago||I AM NOT a miserable, bitter asshole||
I am a sophisticated, accomplished asshole, thank you.
|6 days 10 hours ago||Next year you'll also have to pay for a PSL in addition||

|6 days 11 hours ago||Was it over when Golson bombed our secondary?||
|6 days 18 hours ago||McGuffie !!!|
|1 week 10 hours ago||0-16||
|1 week 10 hours ago||Michigan racked up 288 yds of total offense||
in the first half, but yet we only scored 7 points.
Hart & Henne were out w/ injuries for the 2nd half, so the offense ground to a halt.
The defense, as you note, couldn't stop a thing.
"Michigan couldn't do a thing to stop FSU."
Not true. My cupie doll worked wonders on the FSU kicker. They scored 51 points on 8 TDs. Their XP performance was worse than what you'd expect from a JV high school team.
|1 week 11 hours ago||On an absolute basis, Toledo was far worse than Appy St||
Sagarin ranked Toledo #134 at the end of 2008 w/ a rating of 55.65
Sagarin ranked Michigan #95 at the end of 2008 w/ a rating of 64.28
(Of course these rankings both include the game versus Michigan in each year.)
On a relative basis, the upset factor was similar, but only since Michigan absolutely sucked in 2008.
|1 week 11 hours ago||The Notre Dame win was at home (38-0)||
but was over a winless ND
|1 week 11 hours ago||C'Mon, bowl games in the 70s were futile||
But in major bowls in the 80s, Bo
• won the Rose 23-6 vs Washington in 1980
(Years are by season, not the year of the New Year's Day.)
|1 week 11 hours ago||We lost 19-17 on a Mike Gillette 49yd FG miss||
about one foot wide to the right as time expired at Notre Dame at night in 1988. (The Rocket's two TD returns came in 1989 at Michigan.)
If memory serves...(I was there)
In the loss to Miami, we were up 30-14 and had the ball at the Miami 40 with 10 minutes remaining in the 4th quarter, threatening to blow the Hurricanes out. A penalty stalled that drive and we had to punt. Miami got the ball, drove the length of the field for the TD and converted a 2 point conversion. Miami kicked off and we again had to punt. Once again, Miami drove the length of the field for another TD with about ~1:30 left to bring the score within 30-28. THey went for two, but their pass was intercepted in the flat by one of our DBs, who had an open path to return it for two points had he not been caught from behind, but he chose to play it safe an take a knee. Miami then went for the onsides kick, executed it perfectly with the ball bounding up into the air on the 2nd hop (new for that era), and recovered. After a few first downs, they were in field goal position, and kicked the FG but left a little time on the clock.
Michigan received the kickoff and after a few plays was at the Michigan 40 with about ~10 seconds left. We tried a long pass (not quite into the end zone) that was defended by Miami with a blatant pass interference shove, but the refs chose not to call it. Had the penalty been called, Michigan would have been at the Miami 45 with a couple of seconds left, in possible range for a record Mike Gillete 62 yd FG as he was making them consistently from 60 before the game. But the pass interference was not called, and so we tried another desparate heave on the last play (which didn't make it to the end zone either), and I believe fell incomplete to end the game.
|1 week 12 hours ago||It's worth mentioning that the Illini game was tied 45-all||
at the end of regulation, but I do remember joking about knowing we'd win if we held Illnois to less than 66 points.
|1 week 12 hours ago||Carr was 5-1 versus tOSU against Cooper||
including two wins against heavily favored undefeated OSU teams.
Against Tressel, Carr went 1-6. RR went 0-fer-3 and Hoke is 1-2.
