|1 year 9 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 9 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 9 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.

I think you said it earlier...
|1 year 22 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.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||The presence of Braxton||
The presence of Braxton Miller when Urbs arrived is going to be a big difference maker.
|1 year 40 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)
|1 year 41 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.

He had a broken foot or some such in 2013 I think. Medical redshirt.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||That makes sense...||
As I believe he's gotten a rather large paycheck since the original hearing
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Hang on||
to the dang ball!
|2 years 1 week 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 3 weeks ago||I thought this might be about the offense...||
Because he seems to be getting a total pass there as well.
|2 years 5 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 5 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.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Desmond Morgan...||
Is a possible exception. Original rumor said 6 weeks, which is fairly serious. Also, haven't heard anything about Taylor's or Funchess's injuries or return times. Funchess on the sidelines with no crutches is probably a good sign.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Announcer totally serious||
Announcer just said "unbelievable this team isn't ranked in the top 25; they return all of their kickers!"
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Looks like||
Looks like we found a lineman! Pretty funny.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Because of their MW roots...||
Because of their Midwest roots, right?

I think he said puncho...
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Would've have voted for Brian...||
Would've have voted for Brian... but Hackenberg is a sizable downgrade from Miller (punting ability notwithstanding).

Somebody has been reading the HTTV 2014 mag....
