destroy FSU in the Orange Bowl, put some more steel in the spine, work even harder, come back and beat all expectations for next year. I know this isn't popular opinion, but I think Michigan has a real shot at winning the B1G next year. The opening game with Florida will be an important one, "neutral field" game, young team, primetime. A win in that game and I think the snowball starts rolling downhill in a very positive way.
|1 day 19 hours ago||I agree...||
not being in the CFP doesn't mean we couldn't have won it. The chips just didn't land where Michigan needed them to this year, it happens. I bet if Michigan wins the Orange Bowl, they end up ranked 3rd or 4th, depending on how the other bowls and the CFP play out. I also agree that the CFP shouldn't negate a NY6 bowl win for any team, that is still an achievement and should be regarded as such. I think we are on the same page though. I don't want to see the Rose, Sugar, Orange, and Cotton Bowls deemed less important either. I just think fans need to keep things in the proper perspective. The CFP will always be the goal from here on out, but a Rose Bowl or other big bowl win (at least to me) still comes with all the grandure and recognition.
*If we are being completely honest with ourselves, the only fanbases that think the other big bowls don't "mean anything" are the ones with teams in the CFP. Which is the hottest of all hot takes, because if OSU was playing in the Rose Bowl and Michigan was still in the Orange Bowl, there would be gloating of intolerable levels.

Spot on my good man. The playoff has nothing to do with the watering down of bowl season. Allowing 5 and 6 win teams to participate in bowls is what has caused this. Another poster mentioned above that it might take a few years for the "traditionalists" to get on board with the CFP. To be honest, I just don't understand what the big deal is. Instead of there being a debate over who is the best (which happened with the old system pre-BCS), now it gets decided on the field. Sure we can continue to re-hash the "four best teams" didn't make it argument, but how is the current or even an expanded CFP not the best answer? I'd much rather be playing for a National Title in the Coney Dog Bowl, than playing in the Rose Bowl just because. However, if Michigan makes the CFP next year, isn't the Rose Bowl a semi-final game once again? So, there is something for everyone next year should Michigan make the CFP.

Michigan should be able to play and beat anyone! As college football fans, we can still want Oregon to be good and get their asses kicked by Michigan, should this chance arise. When people on the blog say, "I hope X team stays horrible forever" it sounds like they are saying "I hope Michigan never has to play them because we would lose". I want Michigan to play the best teams and destroy them, thereby making Michigan THE BEST!

that would autocorrect to balls. That would have been awesome.

I know it's not the whole play, but they really sell the ball fakes and leave Spike completely dumbfounded.....
|2 days 21 hours ago||Thank You...||
I've just never understood the obsession with knowing why kids get suspended or punished by the team. Kicked off the team would be a different story.
+1 because I am a shining beacon of integrity
|3 days 18 hours ago||Appreciate....||
the help and information you have. Some will ask you about the Wanglers, I won't, they are suspended, doesn't matter to me why. I'm more interested in Moe Ways, Harbaugh seemed to be chatting him up a little bit before the season started. He was clearly passed by Kekoa on the depth chart. Will he be sticking around or could he be a departure?
|3 days 19 hours ago||^My thoughts exactly...||
seemed pretty logical to me. With more time off for R&R, I figured it was a lock for him to play.
|3 days 19 hours ago||PAGING UMBIG11......||
Any updates you can give the board regarding injuries/recruiting/players staying that can cheer the board up?
|3 days 19 hours ago||Rule #76||
No excuses, play like a champion. Harbaugh wouldn't let you get away with anything less than your best, neither will I. Plus, everyone gets dinged for spelling and grammar on the blog, pretty certain it's a blog wide shtick. Have some fun with it instead of getting all defensive and butt-hurt. My giving you a hard time for your spelling doesn't make me a snob, definitely a smart-ass, but not a snob. Cheers bro, drinks on me!
|3 days 20 hours ago||Five things....||
1) Your first question is worded very poorly.
4) Insert comma after players in last sentence.
5) Players don't commit to a certain school for a variety of reasons. In these cases, I think the following two scenarios are the most likely: 1) Player wants to enjoy the process and get free campus tours, be showered in praise, etc. without tipping hat that they have already made a decision. 2) Player has not been offered by his dream school and therefore is not going to commit without fully knowing that offer from dream school isn't coming. I would much rather deal with both of these scenarios than to have a player commit, only to bolt as soon as another school offers him.

|4 days 15 hours ago||The Title....||
I really didn't know what to expect as I do not know the OPs personal interests enough to gauge what he finds interesting. I guess I was just hoping for more, never again. These vauge thread titles always leave me feeling underappreciated and empty inside.
|4 days 15 hours ago||I understand...||
what the comment is about, just not too sure how it applies? Considering they are over 100 FBS schools, and this tournament includes roughly <25% of them....how is everyone getting a "participation trophy"?
|4 days 15 hours ago||Not sure....||
how this qualifies? I will wait for an explanation though...this comment seems really thought out.
|4 days 16 hours ago||For The Record....||
FCS: 16 - 11 regular season games
Division 2: 24 - 11 regular season games
Division 3: 32 - 10 regular season games
*All from NCAA website*
So, two OOC games, 9 regular season games = not complicated!
|4 days 16 hours ago||I guess...||
I don't understand what the big deal is? These games would be HUGE draws and the NCAA loves MONEY. Eliminate the Conference Championship games and one OOC game. This would take the total down to 15 or 16 games depending on how you are seeded. Which seems more than doable to me, true athletes want to earn it on the field. I bet most of the above teams would be itching for a chance to win the National Championship.

Negged for complaining about people thinking your OP was stupid and attempting to justify it by bringing up other "stupid" posts that some us may find more important than yours. Don't worry Coach, you will live to fight another day, just wasn't your day today. Have a bowl of Wheaties with some Gatorade, come back ready to play tomorrow.
|4 days 16 hours ago||I'm confused...||
by the HOWEVA, does Coach Schiano actually talk like this? Or I am I missing a specific pop culture reference that seems to have gone over fairly well for everyone else? Also, judging by the negs on your OP and subsequent comments, this has been proved wrong.
