|15 weeks 4 days ago||Bama||
If the voters would just consistently put Alabama at #1, they'd be 4/10. Lesson here is not that #1 never wins; it's that most of the time, Bama is the smart bet.

There should be room for both "don't fucking treat women that way" and "I hope you get your life together to become a better person than how you have allegedly acted so far."

|1 year 36 weeks ago||Updated the post||
I updated the post to include some correlations between average MoV/GS for the year and the MoV in the next game. GS is slightly more strongly correlated, but both are pretty weak. If we could include strength of schedule considerations in it, that might make for a stronger link and is something I'll consider for future posts.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||I may be alone...||
I may be alone in this, but I like watching Michigan blow the doors off early and keep scoring points. At least I think I do... it's been a while. If it's not a team I'm rooting for, I prefer close games all the way.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Good idea||
I thought about this, but I'm limited by what espn still has boxscores for (the excel macros I wrote rely on the specific formatting they use for recent seasons). The more recent games are a possibility - I looked into doing the 1997 season and that was a no go.

|1 year 49 weeks ago||This is literally my story||
This is literally my story exactly. Made it even better that they'd just lost and I made them all give me repeated high fives.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||The presence of Braxton||
The presence of Braxton Miller when Urbs arrived is going to be a big difference maker.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||OLine||
I think the assumption is that the OC/OL is already a heavy load and that there should be another set of eyes on the OL (with TEs grouped with either Ts or WRs)
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Misunderstanding...||
I think the poster above is referring to the argument that more 1st rounders become NFL starters because 1st rounders get more practice time, starts, etc., which results in faster development and more opportunities to prove himself. Whereas a 5th or 6th rounder may have only a very few opportunities to prove himself before he's cut from the team.
Recruiting rankings can have a similar bias - 5 stars come in with certain expectations and consequently may end up higher on the depth chart, with more starts, more time on the 1st or 2nd team, etc.. You don't have the same issues of being cut from the team as you do in the NFL (at least not at Michigan), but the difference in starting position on the depth chart can be meaningful in terms of development.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Agree||
He had a broken foot or some such in 2013 I think. Medical redshirt.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||That makes sense...||
As I believe he's gotten a rather large paycheck since the original hearing
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Hang on||
to the dang ball!
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Played first game...||
I believe he played in garbage time in the first game. I recall some minor grumbling about it from the mgoblog powers that be - before there were bigger things to grumble about.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||I thought this might be about the offense...||
Because he seems to be getting a total pass there as well.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Scope - all UM games and some others||
Primarily looking for current season B1G games, and as many UM games as I can get. Looks like stats archive will work great for older UM games and ESPN will work just fine for current season (and the last 10 years as well).
|2 years 32 weeks ago||This is great!||
Will definitely use this site for all Michigan games. I was looking for a way to get box scores for older games than ESPN still had up and this will work wonderfully.

When people say win time of possession and keep opposing offenses on the sideline. How long your offense takes may change the total number of drives, but it doesn't change the effectiveness of the opponent's next drive. The only time it matters is end of half or end of game, when keeping the ball and using up all of the time remaining can prevent the other team from having an additional drive.
