Can you point to where you are getting the historical spreads from?
I have done some searches but haven't found anything. Thanks.

Bowden's birthday is November 8, 1929. He went downhill AFTER 70.
In seasons where he turned 65+
65 1994 10–1–1
66 1995 10–2
67 1996 11–1
68 1997 11–1
69 1998 11–2
70 1999 12–0
71 2000 11–2
So admittedly Saban is getting up there, but he will probably be great for at least another 5 and maybe 10 years left :-(

That's exactly what I've been saying since Sunday. Logged in just to upvote you.
Thanks for actually looking at the facts of the game.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks!!||
That works well. I had already read Steve's previous article but the search got me to it quickly.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Congrats on the kid!||
It's going to be tough but you're going to have some fun too.
Thanks for the write up. I remember being excited about Durkin too, but after the OSU game I am in Missouri. Show me something Coach Brown. I know you're good but let's see it on the field in the B1G.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||I was also looking at 2017||
And it does look bad. However, I think that college football teams almost always look bad somewhere when you look two years down the road.
So, I don't think it's that bad. Maybe see where things were at the end 2013? I haven't had time to do that but how scary would 2015 have looked in December 2013?
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Well put||
By the same logic Jourdan Lewis should be going to the NFL this year, but he isn't.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||No need to criticize||
Just asking the question is criticizing him. Let's not forget the story that Sam Webb related yesterday re OSU fans criticizing a possible recruit on a message board and him mother reading about it.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Most 18 year olds dont make business decisions||
Good for you, really, but it is easy to see an 18 year old saying my family is so important to my success that I need to stay home.
Is is likely that he has a better chance to play in the NFL if he goes Blue? Sure, probably.
But what if he needs immediate family support (for whatever reason) and so if he comes to Michigan he loses that support, making it a lot harder for him to play great football and had little chance to make it to the NFL.
Contrived? Maybe. But I think its a definite possibility.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||You are really new, so some more information ...||
UFRs are articles written by Brian after most UM football games. It lists out most of the plays, including formations, and points out exceptionally good and bad play, if any, on each play.
The best way to understand is to look at one:
Hope this helped.

How is he going to handle it when (if) his wife gets a position where she isn't away much or when (if) they have children??
|1 year 19 weeks ago||I prefer really good||
I prefer really good coordinators that aren't likely to leave in a year.

wrong but I am not so sure this time that the situation is clear cut. After all, he did win a wrongful termination lawsuit.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||That's a simple minded statement||
Example is the comparision of luck factors from 2011 to 2015, fumbles recovered.
Another real live (though dated) example is an NHL team (Colorado I think) whose best player was injured for almost the whole season, came back in time to get in shape for the playoffs and I think they got to the Stanley Cup or won it.
In one sense you are who your record says you are, but I bet most people would pick one team over another to play in a bowl game, same record, if they had a choice.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Coordinator?||
There are a LOT of coaches out there. Which AD and HC want to take the risk of hiring Sark as a coordinator? I don't see why a FBS school (or even an FCS school) would want to hire him, with the added risk of his "disability" relapsing and getting sued?
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Bad for Sark long term||
Sure he can get some money now but will he every get hired again??
I can say this because I am not (and will never be) in a position hire a football coach but there is no way I would hire an alcoholic that publicly sued his employer threatening bad publicity.
Sure Sarks going to make some money off of this today, and the lawyer is going to make money off of this (and will then go away), but will Sark make more money off of this if you look at the next 10 years?
I seriously doubt so.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Yep, I really believe this now!||
Brandon was truly a complete steaming pile of shit as UM AD
|1 year 20 weeks ago||You're right ... kinda||
You are strictly correct on the facts, but I am not convinced your conclusion is so strong. At Arizona, his record in the Pac-12 the last four years is 4-5, 4-5, 7-2, 3-6 for a total of 18-18. Not great, hardly, but given that over the past 4 years the Pac-12 can make a case for being the best conf in college football (and almost certainly they were the second best), that is pretty good. Combined with the fact the Arizona is not an easy place to win and he is basically somewhere around the #15 to #20 HC in the country. If he decided he wanted a good DC and a good special teams coach he might crack the top 10 but certainly wouldn't crack the top 5. RR is a very good coach, but he is not elite. We know that for sure now. Of course I don't think Lloyd or Moeller were elite (and of course not Hoke). Frankly if you look at Bo's football record after his first 5 years at Michigan, and he was HC for almost 25 years total, Bo was not quite elite either.
Arizona is not an easy place to win. People love to overlook that. Also I love it how so many people are jumping on RR THIS year when they are 6-6 and not last year when they had 10 wins and went to the Pac-12 championship game.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Yeah||
I am guessing it's his agent. Of course, he might actually be interested as well. But no doubt it's a no lose situation for him (and his agent) to express interest in the Michigan job.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||I don't think anybody's saying||
that our rivals are going to be bad, just that they are peaking this year and won't be quite as good next year. This year we came very close to beating sparty. Yes we still lost but it was very close and that should give us a lot of confidence (not just hope) that we can go toe to toe with them next year, even in East Lansing. And if the difference between msu and UM narrows next year, we may be legitamately favored in the game next year. OSU is another matter but there is more than hope that we can at leas make a game of it next year despite this year's blowout.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Well put||
He has commited to Michigan. Even if it's a soft commit, I don't see what Texas has to offer a UM commit.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||This is still bad||
Richt to Maryland is better than Durkin to Maryland but still not good. Richt is a good to very good coach. He could definitely raise Maryland up to 8 to 9 wins a season. And where is the link to this?
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Really good point||
If he's willing to play RB. I'm sure he still has hopes of being an NFL QB.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||I agree||
I am also concerned about that. I guess we have to rely on the coaching staff to handle that but it seems to me that if we bring in another 5th year grad transfer at QB (two years in a row) then only two things can happen, both bad:
1) The 5th year grad transfer does not play or plays vey little - Makes it less likely we can get another 5th year grad transfer at QB in the future
2) And worse, the existing QBs on the team think it's unfair: competition is fine, but if you have to compete with a 5th year QB EVERY year, then it's not a fair competition
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Obligatory||
I think Peppers is too short to go to the NFL after next year :-)
|1 year 21 weeks ago||I would pay to see that!||
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Exactly! I want OSU to win||
Exactly! I want OSU to win 151 - 144 in 40+ overtimes!
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Good point!||
|1 year 23 weeks ago||I thinks he's got a good shot at UDFA and||
if he plays well the rest of the season, he might get drafted in the 6th or 7th rounds.
