Between Jedd Fisch and Jim Harbaugh I think we have the QB coaching thing pretty much covered. I think they are aware that JR is missing on the downfield stuff and I'm going to trust this staff to find the answers.

Concur, that was a great time to be a Michigan fan. Messner's CPU was over-clocked at all times.

I think a lot of schools based in large urban centers have a simialr challange. I lived in Miami, FL from 1985 to 1995. That was a pretty good run for the Whoricanes. But unless it was a marquee game they might not draw 25K fans to the Orange Bowl. Lots of things to do in Miami on a Saturday afternnon. On the other side of that, for the marquee matchups the stadium was loaded with people who were not committed fans.

On run plays the intial contact was always past the LOS. Granted, against a very stiff defense first contact was marginally boyond the LOS, but over the past few years how many TFL did we see behind the LOS?
Great first outing against a quality defense.

The National Poetry Contest had come down to two semifinalists: a Michigan graduate and a Buckeye from Ohio. They were given a word, then allowed two minutes to study the word and come up with a poem that contained the word. The word they were given was "Timbuktu".
First to recite his poem was the UM graduate. He stepped to the microphone and said:
Slowly across the desert sand
The crowd went crazy! No way could the Buckeye top that, they thought. The Buckeye calmly made his way to the microphone and recited:
Me and Tim a-huntin went,

Does anyone recall the Bryan Fortay story? Fortay was a massively overhyped QB in '89. During a home visit the Fortay’s reportedly asked Bo for a guarantee that young Bryan would start for Michigan. As I heard the story Bo terminated the visit. Bo was blessed with the gift of clarity.

I put three kids through private school in Virgina. You contact those instutitons, you visit, you get a picture of the costs and finalcial aid situation. You cross some off the list immediately. You go on successive visits. You get your short list. You have your measurables and metrics - and then you make a decision based on your gut.

I'd suggest that accumulating thousands of points in six weeks is kind of like being really good at Magic: The Gathering. Pretty meaningless in the big picture.

The model doesn't claim precision.
"Despite its simplicity, the model has predicted the game winner in over 70 percent of games since the 2005 season."
Feng clearly states that the model doesn't factor in the Harbaugh factor. Therefore your criticism is flawed. So assign a strenght to the H factor. Is he good +1, or +n wins in those toss-up games?
I'm going to go +1 on the H factor. +1 on the Peppers factor for 9.7 wins.

Good take. It shouldn't be a challange to listen to a podcast because people are too cheap to invest in a passable mic. I recommend using Apogee MiC 96.

I was at the '84 Sugar Bowl. The game was a downer but I banged two coeds from TCU. So there's that.
'88 Hall of Fame vs. Alabama - exciting win - Bo was in the hospital with a heart attack
'94 Hall of Fame vs. NC State - crushed it
'94 Holiday Bowl - Navy SEAL wrecked himself skydiving into the statidum

Isle Royale is an incredible hike. On a USGS toporgraphic map it looks simple because those maps don't reigister elevation changes under 15 ft. But between the roots and the rocks there's rarely an even step.
