Lewan, Molk, Martin, Kovacs, and probably Hemingway would start on the 2015 team. Omameh and Kalis would be the guards. That 2011 O-line paved the way for two 1000 yard rushers.
|11 hours 6 min ago||10-2, 11-3||
I agree with The_Knowledge. If you want more details on this season, keep reading. This is from my annual prediction I email my brother:
M 17, Utah 6: Michigan comes out looking strong and convincingly beats a good Utah team, controlling them better than the score indicates. M fans get over-irrationally hyped about the coming season.
M 27, OSU 3: M overpowers a weak beaver squad
M 57, UNLV 14: UNLV gets a couple late scores as you and Anna (my brother and niece) get in the game as part of the 7th string defense
M 17, BYU 27: Expectations are brought back down to earth as M has trouble handling the BYU offense
M 21, M 20: Michigan squeaks by the terrapins
M 31, NU 16: puts to bed the M00N references
M 19, MSU 13: Cook is good, but Stribling makes his case for all-Big 10 honors with 2 picks, Peppers houses a return, the d-line is able to hold up against the sparties for the first time in ages. Taco Bell unsung player of the game is Wormley.
M 27, M14: The gophers don’t scare me this year. Last year was their year. Harbaugh >>> Kill.
M 45, R 7: payback for last season’s Gary Novapocalypse and the reffing blunder at the end. Darboh catches 13 for 130 yards.
M 44, IU 9: Rudock is really rolling now…
M 13, PSU 14: until he runs into Anthony Zettel. Losing him to PSU was a Uge transition cost going from Rich Rod to Hoke.
M 28, OSU 27: What’s your deal, Urban? Drake Harris has M fans salivating over what will be next season, but who will be throwing him the pigskin in ’16?
So that’s 10-2 and 7-1 in the conference. M and OSU both finish 7-1, but UofM gets the head-to-head tiebreaker.
M 31, Neb 10: Neb goes 5-3 in the west and wins a convoluted 5 way tiebreaker with Iowa, Minny, Wiscy, and Purdue. The west sucks and Neb proves it in the championship game. (remember OSU 59-0 over Wiscy last season?)
Michigan rises to #5 in the polls, but has too much ground to make up and misses out on the Final 4. We go to a NYD bowl and lose that because Harbaugh is bringing back Bo’s Michigan.
11-3 overall. If you think that’s farfetched, remember Hoke went 11-2 his first season. Harbaugh has better talent than Hoke had (except Denard) and is a much better coach. It could happen.

I don't mind the National Anthem so much, but I think singing America the Beautiful or whatever it is they sing during the seventh inning stretch nowadays is overdoing it.
|1 day 16 hours ago||pom poms and stuff||
I went to an Angel playoff game a few years ago where they gave out thunder sticks. Imagine having to listen to the person behind you (and 40,000 others) bang those things together for 3 hours. Talk about a migraine.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Minnesota||
I was one of the biggest Minnesota boosters on the board last year. That said, I think all the BTN talking heads are a year late to the party and Minnesota is not going to meet expectations this year. Losing Maxx and Cobb is going to hurt them this season. Leidner is losing his security blanket and will be exposed this year as a mediocre QB. Kill's the best of the ex-MAC coaches in the B1G (not including Urban Meyer since he only coached 2 years in the MAC many years ago,) but he's no Harbaugh.

When Utah joined the Pac-12, there were only 10 teams. Therefore, I don't think it's erroneous for him to say Whittingham took them to the Pac-10. That's what they were, until Utah and Colorado joined.
|4 days 8 hours ago||so what||
why does ABC/ESPN get to dictate our schedule? I mean, besides the gobs of money they throw at us?
Although I have to admit that the 12 noon start works fine for me on the west coast. Roll out of bed, have some breakfast, watch the game, eat lunch. If we win, see what the next game is. If we lose, crank up the Smiths and wallow in misery for the rest of the weekend.
|4 days 15 hours ago||two bold predictions||
One, during an unseasonably warm non-conference game, Ian Bunting calls timeout, takes two eggs out of his uniform, cracks them, and proceeds to fry them on his skillet hands on the 50 yard line. Yes, I just got done reading Brian's TE preview.
Two, the first time I hear Beth Mowins pronounce Jake Rudock's name, I will have a seizure a la Kramer listening to Mary Hart speak

|4 days 15 hours ago||Possible new coach||
It might be considered a long shot, but I think their next coach could be none other than Chuck Long. He played at Iowa, was raised in Illinois, and has head coaching experience at San Diego State, on second thought, scratch this idea.
|4 days 15 hours ago||Mike Thomas (NTMTOTMT)||
To me, he will always be Illinois AD Mike Thomas (NTMTOTMT). He's not the OSU WR or my brother.

Try telling that to Anthony Carter. OK, maybe you have a point.
|4 days 20 hours ago||There ain't gonna be no QB||
I have it on good authority from my brother's neighbor's best friend from middle school, that Harbaugh is serious about getting his best 11 players on the field. That means two TEs with Butt and Bunting, Harris at wide out and the three RBs in a modified, hybridized version of the old single wing formation combined with the wishbone. That's right, they are going to run the T-Bone.
|5 days 12 hours ago||experimenting with packages featuring all 3 healthy tailbacks||
The most "Bo 2.0" thing for Harbaugh to do would be to go in submarine mode and emerge with a wishbone attack.
|5 days 17 hours ago||We're starting with QB?!?||
This is the most surprising development of the off-season.

buy a t-shirt instead or send some beveled guilt his way
|5 days 18 hours ago||I've been waiting patiently||
this signals the dam has broken and we get 2-3 major preview pieces every day. I was wondering when this would start due to the early Thursday start.

you have 37 points in 4 years on the site. There's probably some truth to your joke. It's about time you opened your eyes, or do you do that to ward off blindness?
|6 days 12 hours ago||Jarrod Bunch||
will never be off topic. I don't know how you pronounce his name, but my brother and I would always call him, "jah-RODDDD BUNCH!" Easily one of my favorite players of all time, but I'm partial to fullbacks.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Aerodynamics||
reminded me of the time my sister called home from school to report that she saw a dead body lying on the concrete near Burton Tower. Turns out that the body was former M Regent Sarah Goddard Power. Needless to say, my sister was a little shaken up. Be careful with aerodynamics.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Van Hoose||
Someone over at BTN thinks Van Hoose is the best CB in the B1G. For him not to be drafted, wow. Of course, maybe the BTN talking head just ranks guys like I do, by how cool their name sounds.

in triple overtime. It's still bad, but you are not telling the whole story.
|1 week 1 day ago||The Georgia love||
I think I also voted for Georgia, but I don't understand why they scored so high. The reason I voted for them is that the family that lived across the street from me are big Georgia fans. They even have a personalized license plate (that's real important to me) that reads, "UGA FAN." But they moved, so now I don't care about Georgia. Yeah, they got the hedges and Herschel Walker went there, but what else is appealing about them?

How about a little warning? You really should be labeling those posts NSFZ (not safe for zoo.)
