Gallon was supposed to leak out to the right, but he got chucked and couldn't finish the route.

The comparison is distorted by all the non-conference home games played against cupcakes. The way to control for that would be to compare only home and away conference records over the time period. That would be a better comparison.

Devin Gardner's 584 yards of total offense was one yard short of the Big Ten record of 585 set in 1980 by Illinois QB David Wilson vs Ohio State. Wilson had 621 yards passing and -36 yards rushing The Illini lost that game 49-42.

|10 weeks 2 hours ago||1962||
I was about to turn 7 years old and it was my first Michigan game of any kind. Michigan was destroyed 17-0 by the Gophers led by Carl Eller and Bobby Bell. The game was not as close as the score indicated. Michigan could not do anything at all on offense, finishing with 50 yards total offense (96 passing and negative 46 rushing).
Michigan did have some promising sophomores on the team including Bob Timberlake, John Henderson, and Mel Anthony. Two years later they teamed with another great group of sophs - Jim Detwiler, Rick Volk, Frank Nunley and others -- to win the Big Ten and Rose Bowl.
My second Michigan game was also versus Minnesota and this time Michigan destroyed the Gophers, 49-0.

Thanks for posting, I didn't get to see the tribute on Saturday.
My mom was in a speech class with Tom Harmon at UM. A recent refugee from Europe, she had no idea who he was. After class one day, she came back and told everyone at the dining hall about this great looking guy that had given a great speech. She told them his name was Tom Harmon and they freaked out and she had no idea what the fuss was about.
That was my mother's "cool story bro."

All games will be on the ABC/ESPN family or BTN. As long as you have those networks in your package, you won't need anything else to get the Michigan games. It's possible some of the ESPN games will be on an alternate channel depending on local coverage and blackouts, but it will available somewhere on DTV.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||BTN Gamefinder||
Go to the BTN web page and go to gamefinder (link below). Enter your zip code and provider and will show which games are on which channel in your particular area. Unfortunately, it is only showing the games for Thursday right now, but should definitely have Saturday's schedule up by Friday if not sooner.

Donate the tickets for the games you won't use to a local Connecticut affiliate of Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club or USO etc. and you can get a tax deduction for the face value of the seats.

Brandon's profile sounds like someone that used to post frequently back in the Haloscan (is that the right word?) days. As I recall, his userid included the word coach. Same guy? I thought he made intelligent postings, but he seemed to have stopped at a certain point, perhaps because he was working with another site.

That is a Spanish team. The Israeli pro teams can have a few foreigners , but I don't think non-Jews are permitted in Maccabiah gsmes.

|26 weeks 6 hours ago||As someone who has attended||
approximately 150 NCAA tournament games over the years, I applaud this move. I have always avoided games in domes until the Final 4 this year. After attending the games in Atlanta, I agree that they should keep the Final 4 in domes. Though the view is obviously less than ideal it allows so many more people to experience the fun and atmosphere. If the games this year had not been in a dome, I would not have been there. I paid about $500/seat just to get in the dome, with a venue about a third the size I can't imagine how much tickets would go for.

Maryland has already announced that its 2015 home game with Penn State will be played at M&T Stadium (Ravens field) in Baltimore.
So that will leave the Michigan game on campus at Byrd.

Bill was Jim's uncle.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||I have very specific recollections||
of that play. Michigan subsequently missed two field goal attempts (one a 58-yarder), so the choice of kicking the extra point was the correct one.

He wouldn't be the third either. Stan Noskin started at QB for Michigan in the 50's. There is also a Jewish quarterback on the current roster - Alex Swieca.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||He had a Saturn dealership||
He did some of the commercials for them shortly before they shut down.
From Linkedin it appears he is now managing a Toyota dealership in Louisiana.
He was a great receiver, also had some success running reverses and returning punts at UM. He was a little unfortunate being with the Steelers when they had Lynn Swann and John Stallworth, so it took a while before he got some opportunities.
He was the same class that I was and he was with the Steelers at the same time I was living in Pittsburgh for a couple years (as was RB Russell Davis who was 2 classes behind). I ran into him at a jazz club in Pittsburgh in the early 80's.
|30 weeks 7 hours ago||1997||
In 1997, Michigan played a non-conference game at Breslin and beat the Spartans 74-61.
The team finished 19-11 in the regular season, 9-9 in the Big Ten with non conference wins over Duke in Durham (a 2 seed in the tournament), Arizona (at Auburn Hills) who was a 4 seed and won it all, at Michigan State, St Johns (at Uniondale LI), a neutral court win over Washington State, a win over LSU at Auburn Hills, wins at Crisler over Ball State, Cleveland St, Bradley, and Detroit, and two non-conference losses in Hawaii to Memphis and Pitt.
Michigan lost 6 of its last 7 games and did not get a bid to the tourney. My recollection is that in the analysis of who should get an at-large bid, the non-conference win at Michigan State was totally ignored. All the pundits lumped it into the 9-9 conference record.
Snubbed, Michigan went on to win the NIT in Fisher's last year.

Tight end Fred Davis from Toledo won the Mackey Award at USC and is now in the NFL with Washington.

The other red flag was the "too good to be true" nature of the offer. Scammers, both internet and traditional con men (who have burned me in the past), appeal to either the prospective victim's greed or altruism. THe really good ones appeal to both, eg,victim is providing some sort of help to someone in need (person stranded without money), but will come out ahead and benefit personally in the end.
|35 weeks 6 days ago||I am surprised that there has||
I am surprised that there has been little comparison made between the situation at Rutgers and Bobby Knight at Indiana. Knight engaged in similar behavior for years. It was only when a disgruntled former staffer had the video of him choking Neil Reid that Knight was put on zero tolerance probation (much worse behavior than Rice in my mind, though I agree Rice should have been fired the first time). Nobody called for IU president Myles Brand to be fired, in fact he was hailed for standing up to Knight for putting him on probation (though many criticized Brand for being so harsh on Knight. Later Knight was fired for violating his probation when he grabbed a student that called him "Knight." Of course, Knight had 3 national championships and Rice has a losing record.

And if they didn't cap the number of sports that each school can count, then Stanford would win by even more because it has more point-scoring teams that are not included in the rankings.

You beat me to it. I was also going to make the Hansborough connection. Hansborough is not that limited a jumper, actually. He and McGary move very well laterally on defense and have incredibly high motors. Hansborough's FT shooting was much better than Mitch's, which made him all that much more dangerous offensively, because he was a foul magnet.
