I had Michigan in my Parlay. I'm feeling better now. Hopefully they pour it on.

I took a look at Sparty's schedule and aside from us and OSU they play no one. The get the 4 bottom feeders from the Big 10 and then Nebraska. I will give them credit for scheduling and defeating Oregon but it looks like they caught the ducks in a down year. It will be interesting if they split with OSU and Michigan to see what happens with them. That schedule will probably come back to bite them.

Predictions? - If I was betting I would probably take Sagan, but I have a feeling Boonen finds his old form and shocks everyone.

I'm excited just because I think we will improve as the year goes on. You can already see signs of it. In the past, it didn't seem like that was the case. We may be a tough out by the end of the season.

Just starting my second year of law school. We had a good number of students from the East coast and I still remember watching their reactions. We had one professor who was from NY who had friend killed in attack. I still remember the discussion we had when classes resumed. He was very smart indivdual and you could tell how personal attacks were for him. I still remember him talking about how parts of him wanted to see Kabul "glow in the dark". It was obviously personal for everyone but the way the he discussed it really stuck out to me.

I was going to post this as well. I can't believe someone at Texas hasn't had a talk with this guy. Patterson needs to find a different job. This makes them look terrible.

I hope this ends well for the good guys for once....and I still hate basketball recruiting.

Cowherd continues to talk about Harbaugh because he believes it makes him relevant. I love that Jim doesn't even acknowledge him whether it is intentional or because Jim is in his own world. The only reason people are talking about Cowherd is because he is talking about Harbaugh.

OSU is loaded. I'm glad we play them in November when we will be at our best. I suspect we will be their toughest game all year. We will definitely have our hands full though.

If genuinely feel bad for the kid. He is a great football player. Our chances to win that game just improved immensely.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I guess I don't mind one||
I guess I don't mind one quality opponent, but we could be 2-2 for the second straight year after the non-conference. We could go 5-3 or 6-2 in the league and be 7-5 or 8-4. If we played cupcakes we would be 9-3 or 10-2 and feel a lot better about ourselves. I know it is sad but you are as good as your record says you are. Michigan could have benefited from a couple lesser opponents so they could get their mojo before the league starts.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||There is almost no upside if||
There is almost no upside if you play a quality opponent early in the year. If you win, it is nice but if you lose it puts you behind the 8-ball. I love seeing the games, but I don't blame people for playing cupcakes. I looked at our 2016 schedule and it is much easier to naviate than 2015's.

I love the way the kid plays but if he came back after we played them I wouldn't be sad. Yes, I'm aware am a lousy human being.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Peppers is the real deal. We||
Peppers is the real deal. We didn't seem to handle motion well tonight. They repeatedly threw to back out of backfield and we had no answer. I think the D will be good to great and keep us in every game this year.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Rudock killed us tonight, but||
Rudock killed us tonight, but the WR and Butt looked way better than I expected. O-line didn't open many holes but I liked the fight. The offense won't be explosive but we should be in every game this year.

Those aren't dreams, they are prophetic visions.

8-4.....3 and 1 in the non-league games. I'm not sure who we lose against. I'm still scared of BYU. We lose to MSU and OSU but give one of them the scare of their life. We slip against Minnesota or PSU. I think we will fell pretty good by the end of the year and see improvement that culminates with us crushing our bowl opponent leading to high expectations for next season.

..........because we have better football players. I've tried to keep my expecatations realistic, but I'm all in now. I just think we have a lot of skilled kids who are finally getting the coaching they deserve. There is simply too much talent on the roster and among the coaches to be mediocre.

These guys are professionals at not giving a definite answer when asked a question. I know it is by design but they could throw us a small bone couldn't they. Only 9 more days until all questions are answered.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||The Harris news is very||
The Harris news is very exciting. He could be a game changer for us. I'm reluctant to drink the Kool-Aid but the news is very encouraging.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Wow, this is horribly||
Wow, this is horribly depressing. Thanks for putting it together though. Some of it was like a blast from the past. It will be interesting to keep track of some of these guys going forward.

I'm watching in the privacy of my own home. I'm taking Friday off because I'll either be really happy and hungover on Friday or really sad and hungover.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||If I was betting I would say||
If I was betting I would say we would be 8-4 with a ceiling of 10-2 and a floor of 6-6. The Utah and BYU games scare me and we could be 4-0 or 2-2. Minnesota and Penn State would be the other swing games. I wouldn't be surprised if we upset OSU or MSU but will probably come up short against both. I just hope we see the team get better as the year goes on.

I feel bad for you Wolverine 1414. This exactly why I haven't ever started a thread on here. The fear of being "negged" is a good and powerful thing.

It is very unfortunate we will have to see his face during the pre-game but I'm confident we will have knocked that smug look off his face by the end. Seriously though, the pre-game will be brutal.
