|16 hours 49 min ago||The AD will report to Harbaugh and Beilein in reality||
|21 hours 2 min ago||If DB Dave Brandon had hired a Harbaugh or a Miles||
and otherwise tried to minimize his profile with the fans, then the fans and students would almost surely have put up with the DB act. Sure, we would have grumbled about him, but if the football team was winning, it would have been an annoyance.
Michigan athletics is very ambitious when it comes to extracting revenue from its fanbase, but like a slacker when it comes to going outside of the good-ol-boys network to find a winning coach or administrator.
Hopefully, this time the slackers in charge know that the minimum they can get away with is a Harbaugh or a Miles.

Many quit the team.
But those that stayed were champions, that very same year.

due to a player throwing his helmet in the air.
|2 days 17 hours ago||Yes, it is legal to review the spot of the ball||
The practical problem with it most of the time is that the player goes down away from any markings, so most of the time the spot of the referee is within the confidence interval of a TV-reviewed spot.
This time, the Maryland QB placed the ball right by the yard marker at the sideline, so the accuracy of the TV review was much better than the spot given by the ref.

Maybe it's the nerd in me, but sometimes I find these rule nuances to be interesting.
Unfortunately with the way this season is going, more interesting than the outcome of the game itself.

|3 days 15 hours ago||The only way I see to justify it would be||
to penalize Baylor for the very poor quality of the bottom half of their schedule, of which they chose three. (I don't agree with that judgment.)
The other thing that the committee could be doing is starting to stratify by conference. They likely wouldn't want to put BOTH TCU and Baylor in before Ohio State but would put Baylor above Ohio State should TCU lose or Baylor jump TCU. If that's what the committee is doing, then I think that is reasonable.

of lowered expectations for the short term outlook for the program.
(The Five-Stage Model of Grief)
When the punt return TD was called back, missing a chance to go up 14 points, and when we ran into the kicker turning a Maryland FG into a TD (shoulda been up 11, instead we were tied), I reacted much like I would when my kids played the Oregon Trail and ran into something this:

He's like Vince Lombardi, only better.
|4 days 11 hours ago||IMO, Hoke's fate was likely sealed long before this game.||
Hoke put his firing in play early in the season. If, as I hope, the back channels indicated that Harbaugh would come, then the deal was sealed.
Harbaugh or Hoke? Which one is the better coach?
For those old enough to remember, Les Moss was replaced by the Tigers in the middle of the 1979 season in favor of Sparky Anderson when Sparky became unexpectedly available.
Sparky or Les Moss? Which one is the better manager?
The Tigers knew the answer to that question and acted on that answer alone, without respect to the decent job Moss was doing.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Yep, we seem to be good against the rush||
except during obvious milk-the-clock-with-the-running-game drives.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Michigan gave away 11 points with two penalties||
on action that didn't affect the play. (The block in the back on Norfleet's called-back TD punt return and on Lewis' attempt to block the FG.)
Also, Smith cost us a first down on an illegal motion on 4th & 1 in which he had nothing to do with the play. Yes, Kerridge ran for 52 on the next play, but perhaps it would have been more useful to have that play still available later in the game.
Overall, I don't think the team played that badly today, outgaining Maryland 398* to 312. They just found a way to lose.
*Kerridge's 52 yard rush is included in the 398.
