For now, Noah Spence remains inside the Urban Meyer Circle of Trust.

Bummer we don't get Indiana at home. They always seem to have our number when we play there. However, I'm more than happy to not have to play at Wisconsin. Guess I'll take that in the tradeoff.

Biggest? I'm inclined to say no. Rivalry games will always be bigger, but if we lose this game, it could be a nasty sign of things to come for the remainder of the season. If we lose on Saturday, in front of a home crowd, to what is considered right now to be a middling PAC-12 team, I could easily see this season spinning out of control. Even at this point, I don't think a repeat 7-5 season is that crazy to imagine.
Hoke continues to show a complete inability to prepare this team to play on the road against any team not named Purdue. So, MSU and OSU are likely losses (at this point), Rutgers could very well be a tossup, and even though Northwestern is a tire fire right now, so are we whenever we play road games. And then Penn State I can see as one of those games that we should win, but get outschemed and outcoached in. Or we have another 4th quarter meltdown as Hackenberg marches down the field for a game-winning TD.
I know I'm getting a little offtopic here, but I say if you can win Saturday, you can keep some slight optimism going and rack up a couple W's before the meat of the schedule hits. Lose (especially lose convincingly), and I think the wheels fall off the season, and everyone starts counting the days until we can see John Beilein and Co.

I'm okay with this. We're pretty well stocked at running back right now. I'm more than okay with Isaac having a year to learn the system, and get the chance to start next year (which I think he will) behind a much more veteran, experienced O-Line.

If it hasn't happened by now, it won't ever happen. It's been 20 years.

I wasn't expecting FSU to do anything, so kudos to them on this one.

As long as he wins football games, this will be an afterthought by tomorrow.

Guys like Burke and Stauskas might get all the glory, but Novak has every right to be included with those guys.
|3 days 8 hours ago||Maybe I should be, but I'm||
Maybe I should be, but I'm not that worried about this game. Minnesota can't pass to save it's own life, and their run game, while tough, should play right into our strength.
|3 days 9 hours ago||For the sake of the children||
For the sake of the children and all that is good and decent in this world, I pray that this matchup not take place. For one, if we lost, I would be concerned that Ann Arbor would burn to the ground.
RichRod would stay awake for weeks crafting up the game plan of his life to try and beat us. If we lost, it would honestly be rock bottom for this program. Yes, people, we can sink much lower than where we are right now.
That would have to be the final nail in Hoke's coffin, and I'm honestly not sure that DB would be able to retain Hoke if a disaster like that happened.
|4 days 5 hours ago||What are they smoking down at||
What are they smoking down at SB Nation? I mean, Northwestern in a New Year's Day bowl? Or even a bowl in general? At this rate I can't see them winning more than 3-4 games.

We have Tom Brady. That's infinitely better than all 3 of those guys put together.

As upset as I would be as well, would you even be surprised at this point if we lost to Penn State? For some reason (actually, a lot of reasons), I wouldn't be. They have a QB who has a knack for winning games in the 4th quarter, and he will be a huge challenge for our secondary. Granted, I think our D-Line can throw him around like a rag doll since their O-Line is a sieve, but I guess I'm just saying that I wouldn't at all be shocked if Hackenberg drives his offense right down the field to set up a game-winning TD.

OSU will mold into a good team, despite what we all want to believe. And so will MSU. Maybe good is a relative term in this conference, but they'll both be 10-win teams if I had to wager.

The Big Ten is in football what the SEC is in basketball. A couple good teams, and the rest is bottom feeding trash.

I really want Hoke to be "the guy." I really do. But he's coaching his way right out of a job.

Miami's head coach is wearing a red sweater vest. That's got to be it.

Everyone can call for Morris as much as they want. You all know Hoke will not put him in.
|5 days 9 hours ago||You'd think that our O-Line,||
You'd think that our O-Line, just based on sheer talent and size alone, would be able to blow Miami's D-Line off the line of scrimmage on every single snap. But no. We're not allowed to have nice things.

So where is Peppers? If Hoke is t going to play him, then what's the point of dressing him?

Just go on the BTN app or the website and you should be able to watch the Michigan game from there for the time being.
|5 days 10 hours ago||The team we're playing is on||
The team we're playing is on an 18-game losing streak. I'd like to think that our entire first team could be suffering from chronic diarrhea and we would still beat the shit out of Miami. Hopefully this gives guys like Darboh, Canteen and Chesson a chance to get some catches and valuable playing time.

Wow, it should at least be 28-0 ECU, if not 35-0.

I'm sure we were saying the exact same thing about Akron last year.

Have you seem this team play a road game? We've still got 4 of those left, and outside of maybe Northwestern, I wouldn't be shocked of we lost all of them. This team certainly can't be questioned on talent, but I'll believe it can get the job done on the field when I see it.

Someone please explain to me why adding Maryland to the conference was a good idea.
