They have to be getting close to the tipping point where it will not be possible to mathematically have enough .500 win teams to qualify.

The coaches love the extra 15 practices a bowl game gets you. Other than that, there's no real benefit to getting into Bowls 15-40. There is just not enough money in it to be worth it.

As the son of two Calvin alums, I went to Augustana...of course.

True. How many more songs would have featured bag pipes had he not passed.

It's a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll. They made it to the top. Glad they could enjoy it before this unfortunate incident.

When you look at the top 8 in each league, I doubt the actual list matches up very well with the list any of us would have put together. Granted, this is a one year look and bonuses have a big impact, but man, those are some odd names to be at the top this year.

This is not a subject I turn to statisticians or engineers to provide insight on. Show me a survey of high level athletes and let's see what the data says.

In fairness to Hoke, in the first interview with Dave Brandon at the introductory news conference, Brandon pointed out that Hoke was not a polished PR person and he was okay with that. I think the PR inexperience came in to play more with the Gibbons situation more so than typical weekday or post game interviews.
|6 days 15 hours ago||The old adage of learn to||
The old adage of learn to lose close, learn to win close, learn to win big I think is valid. I think Hoke needs to have a win big year because he has had two years of win/lose close.

I think Art Briles qualifies. What he has done at Baylor is amazing. Baylor may have been even worse in football than Michigan was in basketball when Briles arrived. He has to compete with Texas, A&M, Oklahoma, Okie St, and LSU for recruits in his back yard, and yet he has been at or near the top of the Big 12 the last two years.
|6 days 16 hours ago||You have partially touched on||
You have partially touched on the primary issue I have with Hoke's tenure so far. It just doesn't look and feel like a top coach getting things turned around. Recruiting has been good, but a great coach would have molded the past three years of players into something that showed promise despite not being as talented as the top teams. A top coach would not be pointing out youth issues entering his fourth season. A top coach wouldn't have the cluster situation Al Borges and the offense were the past three years. Seriously, does anyone think the Borges/Funk experiment would have lasted three years under Saban, Meyer, or Schembechler? They simply would not have accepted it. Hoke was lamenting about having to let go of a great guy and good coach, not once saying he didn't meet the expectations he has for the program. Hoke is a great guy, I think he does a good job working with the players, I simply don't see the expectation of greatness that is required at a program like Michigan.

There has to be some form of social convention change that dictates only one of the teams fan bases is allowed to riot. One team won, and the other lost. They should not get to have the same celebration!!!

There is a U-M Texas plate I see around my neighborhood peridocially. I assumed it was a purchased vanity plate.
Unfortunately, there is a Sparty plate in the parking garage at work on a regular basis also. I thought I was far enough away to avoid them.

Michigan has this set in it's arsenal. They have run it going back to Darius Morris. It's one of the ways Morgan has gotten wide open dunks, and how GRIII has had those baseline lobs wide open. The big difference being Kentucky has so much youth they don't run many other sets where as Michigan does. Also, Kentucky has so much athleticism at every position, this really is the best offense for them.

I hope they start on a second tower of footballs sooner than later.

I know the AD hate meme is strong on this blog, but there is absolutely no hate of UT's new AD because he refuses to schedule A&M in any sport. UT and A&M both hold this deep seeded hatred of each other to the point they don't even want to play. More so from UT fans because they can't believe their version of little brother grew up and left home. At least A&M fans say they have no problem playing UT as long as it is in a bowl or tournament game. Things are weird down here.

But 6-5 281 lbs Mason Cole might be. The coach even said so. It was in the quote I saw...completely out of context...on a blog....on March 31...before the spring game has even been played....so yeah, it's happening.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||How many final fours does the||
How many final fours does the typical elite team get in the span of 3-4 years? Most would agree 1, maybe 2. McGary was an integral part of a team that made the national championship game. I don't think flame-out is the right term.

I like to think of refs as dirty old bums, and I'm about to punch him in the mouth...you know, because he's a dirty old bum, and then I think, there's something special about this guy...and he calls a charge.

Some people just are not photogenic, yet somehow keep finding themselves in front of a camera.
Also, Rodger's looks like a little kid amongst the big trees Wisconsin has on that team.
