While it's true that the margin is huge compared to historical numbers, it's a new scoring system that rewards degree of difficulty. Any comparison to the old scores is invalid.

Part of the trickery of that goofy touchdown play was due to illegal motion. You can't see it in the first view, but the replay shows the RB shifting sides in the backfield, but not getting set before the QB starts moving around making his fake audibles. The QB is still moving at the snap, so it is illegal motion. The first player must be set for a full second before the QB starts moving, or the QB must reset before the snap. Neither happened. It may seem minor, but when they have an illegal shift, it further convinces the defense that the ball is not about to be snapped.
It clearly fooled the refs too, because they wouldn't normally miss that illegal shift.

No, the Power 5 conferences' votes count as 2, so switching the PAC12 and a group of 5 vote is a three vote swing. 8-7 to deny the ban.

Plus UM Bielfeldt is a traditional 4, but UM doesn't use those, so he was an undersized center. He is too small to cover centers, and isn't a good enough outside shooter to play the 4 in Michigan's offense.

It was a great reply by O'Korn, and I only found it because of the OP, but fast isn't always best.

Offered assistant head coach job? Aren't all of the coaching positions filled? Recruiting and analyst positions are open, but coach?

The problem with the analysis is that it ignores the fact that the three data sets are not concurrent. Drake's carries mostly came after those of Smith's and Green's. How do we block for the effect of an improving offensive line, or changing skill of opponents. We can't know definitively whether the ball carrier or one of the other factors is more significant.

It's actually not incorrect in this case. "Ourselves" is reflexive. By separating them, we are instead speaking of our self, meaning who we are, rather than a reflexive reference to the subject.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||My issue with this is that||
My issue with this is that training can dramatically improve performance on these tests, and it would be difficult to know if someone's score was before or after practice. If you're comparing scores of someone who is well prepared to someone who isn't, you could be reaching the wrong conclusion as to ultimate ability.

Agreed, and I think Cowherd was just feeling defensive because Harbaugh questioned the nature of the questioning. If he hadn't done that, I think Cowherd wouldn't have left the interview with such a negative feeling.
