Cal has a number of returning RBs but none of them stood out in 2013, and Enwere would have a better shot at early playing time there than at M. M's best chance to get him to flip would be if Joe Mixon ends up at Cal, but that seems unlikely.

Stage 4 lung cancer is brutal. Hope the drug keeps working.
and f**k cancer. I myself had stage 1 lymphoma 12 years ago, but stage 1 is no comparison to stage 4.

I mostly agree with your ratings, but I disagree on Delano Hill. He had a total of one tackle. I find it very difficult to believe that he made the special teams significantly better than his replacement would have, and that his contribution this year was worth forfeiting his 5th year senior season in 2017.
True freshmen usually do not play well on special teams as they are usually much more mistake-prone than veterans. I wouldn't burn a guy's redshirt just to play him on special teams unless he's a kicker, holder, or returner.

I would get rid of overtime for any non-playoff game in any sport. The games are long enough already, tired players are more likely to get hurt, and if you can't beat these other jokers in 60 minutes (9 innings, 48 minutes, 90 minutes, etc) you don't deserve to win.
I also hated the term "deathbacker". It sounded like something out of a bad Jack Black movie.

This is a perfectly appropriate bowl against a perfectly reasonable opponent. I can understand people compaining about how the season went, but to complain about this bowl matchup is just silly. What the hell did people expect? We're 7-5 and no better or worse than our record.
|1 week 2 days ago||this is anything but a cake team||
K-State destroyed Texas Tech and played everyone tough. Their worst loss was by 10 points. I think we'll beat them if the offense can do most of what it did against OSU, but it won't be easy.

He has Wazzu in a bowl this year.
|1 week 5 days ago||because he's a freshman||
An unproven player should never get a reserved number. I could see Countess or Taylor getting a reserved number before the season starts, but none of the other DBs.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||losing||
This game was a perfect negative image of the Akron or UConn games. It sucks to lose especially to OSU, but I think everyone is a lot less worried about the state of the program now than they were a few hours ago.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||don't blame him||
2-point conversions work 40-50% of the time. Our run defense had been so poor, we were probably less than 50-50 to win in OT.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||last 4||
Since teams have figured out how to snuff our offense, the offense has scored 6, 13, 9, and 14 points in regulation. Even that's misleading because the two TDs against Iowa were off of short fields. This is basically a 10 points per game offense.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||OSU 27 M 10||
Their D isn't great but it's better than Neb or NW, both of which shut us down. I would be surprised if we get more than 250 yards or they get less than 350.

I think it should be a new post tag, along with "100% worst thing ever" and "i want a staple gun".
|3 weeks 10 hours ago||Cal is the other team I follow||
having spent 4 years there before my 9 at Michigan. Jared Goff does not play like Tom Brady. Maybe he plays the way Brady would have if he had been thrown to the wolves as a true freshman. He's built like a true freshman and he reads defenses like a true freshman.
That said I think the Bears can win between 3 and 6 games next year depending on how much they get from the dozen or so guys who missed most or all of this season with injuries. They lose only a DT, the kicker, and a handful of marginal players.

Pretty mild as far as trash talk goes. Still probably better to say nothing at all.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||weirdos||
The same weirdos who post after losses on every other Michigan board. This board wasn't like that for a number of years, but things ain't pretty now.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I don't think he needs to win 10||
I think 8-4 would be enough for 2014 as long as the offense gets straightened out. Going forward I don't know whether 8-4 indefinitely would be enough, though.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||agree||
Our defense isn't great, but it's functional and isn't underachieving relative to its talent and experience level. Our offense is an absolute black hole.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||the other guys could easily be worse||
Gardner is a below average qb at this point, but he has had some good games. Morris has yet to show any indication that he can play.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Funchess is unreliable||
He dropped everything that came his way today.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||we are not ball||
like any team with a functioning offense.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||option 2||
But I would say the same thing for every single returning player on the offense. Not a single one of them played well enough this year to be a presumptive starter next year. That includes Funchess, who dropped a ridiculous number of passes today.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||here's how||
1. In the 2nd half of the season, we went up against actual defenses.
2. Opponents also took advantage of game film that ND didn't have, and figured out how to stop us.
3. Indiana sucks. Any offensive stats compiled against them should not count.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||fire Hecklinski and Jackson too||
All our RBs are useless and can't block, and our only competent receiver is a 5th year senior Rodriguez recruit. Keep Ferrigno for special teams but fire the part of him that coaches TEs.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||uh||
what killed us was getting outgained by 250 yards. Without those TOs Iowa wins 27-7 or so and the 4th quarter is garbage time.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||the final indignity||
Giving up a 3rd and 12. That said, the defense played well enough to win (given Iowa's propensity to self-destruct) if the offense had done anything whatsoever.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||defense||
They always deflate as soon as the offense blows the game. Now they're giving up 20 yard runs to that fat slow RB.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Morris could be worse||
As bad as Gardner has been, we have no evidence that Morris can play at all.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||and||
we get into FG range
we can't hold on to the freaking ball.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||that's ballgame||
unless we score on special teams. This offense is utterly nonfunctional.
