Pick your poison; they're all lethal. DPJ looks like the next in line.

I don't think there's going to be a "next Zeke Elliot" for a while. Dude is shattering NFL rookie records.
It's not just his speed, but his vision, power, "juke-in-a-phonebooth" ability, patience, acceleration, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc,

Only B1G wins I'm expecting tonight are Michigan and Purdue. I'll go with IU as the upset to bring the challenge to another tie.

I'm really glad my job doesn't depend on limiting this offense.
Go show the world why you're the best d coordinator in the nation, Mr Brown.

20% shooting. You shouldn't win a game shooting 20%, and we won't.
Didn't show up today.

6 turnovers, 2/10 shooting, and terrible defense.
Irvin is OFF tonight!!!!
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||Yikes. Irvin is garbage||
Yikes. Irvin is garbage tonight. Gotta recognize that and get him outta there.
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||Looks like our legs didn't||
Looks like our legs didn't travel this game. We're slow, not moving on offense, and not boxing out on D.
Gonna have to hit some shots to win this one.

This game is hard to watch. Ugly offenses, no rebounding, terrible officiating, and awful announcing

SC is all over our guys on D. They are getting away with murder on our guys coming around on screens.

SC getting away with a ton of contact on defense. Jeez

Slow start. Gotta battle back. Starts on the defensive end. Can't let them get 2nd and 3rd chances.
|2 weeks 13 hours ago||Not trying to pick a fight,||
But are you implying OSU would run a successful offense if JT threw for less than 100 yards, and simply relied on beating Michigan through the ground?
Interesting strategy. Good luck. Glasgow, Taco, and Worm may say otherwise.

Notre Dame hung on and beat NW in a close one. Great game. NW looks like a legit bubble team. This could be the year!
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Shout out to Navy for making||
Shout out to Navy for coming in at #25 in the new CFP rankings!
Also, heads up on NW vs ND basketball. ND winning 58-56 with under 8 minutes left. NW looking like a potential bubble team! It'd be great to see them make the NCAAT this year!

Their playing days were way before my time, but I grew up watching tennis and was familiar with their names but not so much their history.
I watched that HBO doc and man, I never realized how much their competition with each other drove both of their success. I felt bad for Borg more than McEnroe after watching it.

I feel ya, but I also feel that this is our year. With all our seniors, we are loaded on both sides of the ball.
Last year doesn't make me anymore confident about this game, but I just feel like we have to get it done this year.
Beating OSU in Columbus would be our National Championship.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||My mentality is nervous. Can||
My mentality is nervous. Can I not be nervous about going into The Shoe against a team I've only seen Michigan beat 5 times that I can remember?
I'm always on your side WD, but if you can't see merit to the thought of a possible outcome where we lose 42-13, and the media calls into question if Harbaugh can get us over the OSU hurdle, then I don't know what to tell you.
Winning this game would be equivalent to when we beat Washington State in 1997.
This is our Championship game.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||So if Michigan loses 42-13,||
So if Michigan loses 42-13, you won't say we were overhyped this year?
I think there would be merit to that discussion if we are a no show, and our #1 defense gets steam rolled by OSU.
In my lifetime, I've only seen 5 wins. My optimism is very low anytime we play OSU. I'm deathly afraid of getting embarrassed again. A close loss won't feel any better. We need a win, for sake of the program, for Harbaugh, and for the fanbase.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Exactly||
Michigan is 5-13 against OSU (not including 2010) starting when I was old enough to understand football, and being able to brag about Michigan's success at school.
Our total margin of victory in the 5 wins is 45. OSU's total margin of victory in their last 2 wins is 43.
I'm sick of us losing, sick of us looking like a high school team against them, and sick of this "rivalry" being so one-sided that the national perception of this game is nothing more than an ordinary conference game.
Last year, we had a chance to do something special, and we got absolutely destroyed by OSU at home. If we get a similar result this year, Harbaugh's hype will have run out of steam, and he'll be facing a ruthless assault from all angles until he finally beats Urban Meyer and Ohio State.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I have my first ever marathon||
I have my first ever marathon in 19 days, and I'm more nervous about The Game than I am about running my marathon.
I'm seriously freaking out about this game, because there is so much on the line, and I don't want that same feeling I got after that '06 game. My stomach still turns inside out thinking about that game.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah||
I'm not knocking Jim on this at all. Those were some of the worst questions I've ever seen.
But it also seemed like Jim had a lower tolerance for these questions, and he needs to get back to work. It's all business this week, and he doesn't have time for these kind of press conferences.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Woof. I hope that was better||
Woof. I hope that was better in person than it read in writing.
Those answers (and terrible questions) makes it look like Jim doesn't have the time or patience to talk to anybody this week, outside of his football team.
Dudes on a mission. It's payback time. Let's go!
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Happened to me once. I||
Happened to me once. I realized that it won't save anything unless everything is 100% filled in.
It's easy to miss a box or game, and if you make the mistake of hitting save; bye bye all your picks.
It's made me triple-check myself before clicking save. Definitely an issue that should be an easy fix. I prefer ESPN over Yahoo for fantasy sports, but I wanted to see how I'd stack up against the MGoBlog community. Pretty good so far!

The leader is 208-152 for 3480 points.
7th place is the only other picker with over 200 correct picks, at 204-156 and 3309 points.
15 entries have 190+ correct picks, but obviously not much confidence in those correct picks as the leader. (for example, #45 is 190-170 for only 3043 points).
The lowest number of correct picks in the Top-10 is #8 with a 183-177 record, but has 3304 points. Dude hits big on his correct picks.

I've held the 6th spot for a couple weeks now. Still haven't cracked the top-5, but I'm super happy with being in the top-10.
I've always had success picking games straight up, but struggled picking with the spread. This is my first time ever having success with a spread pick'em.
