"Michigan is now at 17 commits in a class that should read the mid-to-upper 30s"
This is a typo, and should say 20s, right? Surelyrics we aren't replacing nearly half the team with this class.

Except it is a gun control issue. You're never going to beat common sense into every idiot who wants a gun.
What if someone else had been hit because this idiot was careless?

They most certainly could be, if they are unbeaten going into it. Urban has lost, what, 4 games in 4 years? Even if they are losing a lot 9f experience, OSU is a top 5 team until they prove that they are capable of being anything but that.

Damn. At first I thought that this was about the lead singer/guitarist for Megadeth, Dave Mustaine. That would be getting into ultimate offseason posting.

The fact that there are patents for aerosols to help mitigate the effects of global warming does not mean that the government or private companies are constantly spraying us with "chem trails."
Most of the chem trail conspiracy nuts look at completely normal contrails produced by commercial airliners and claim that they are evidence that the government is spraying mind control substances or interfering with the weather. It's insane.
Now, don't take that as me saying that there has never been anything sprayed into the atmosphere by an aircraft. But it's not happening on a wide scale and it's certainly not happening on commercial aircraft.
|1 week 1 day ago||Chem trails is one that gets to me||
Anyone who legitimately believes in Chem trails pisses me off. There are so many reasons why it is a stupid theory that it's not even funny.
That, and people who don't believe we landed on the moon.

For you metalheads, The Direction of Last Things by Intronaut is a really fantastic album. It's by far my favorite in recent memory.
|1 week 6 days ago||I'm going to take a guess||
I'm going to take a guess that most people on this board played football in some capacity or another. And I'm going to further venture that almost no one on here has had any neurological issues due to playing football.
As with anything, football comes with a certain risk. It's up to you to decide whether it's worth it. I believe it is. I don't have kids, but if I did, mine would be playing football, if they choose to do so.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||I think LB is a bigger area||
I think LB is a bigger area of concern than the run game at this point. The OL was not spectacular last year, but did show massive improvement over 2014. They finished out the year nicely against Florida, who has a pretty good defensive line.
I don't think that there is any reason to think that they plateaued in 2015 - I expect that they will again show improvement in 2016. And it helps that they have one of the best defensive lines in the country to practice against.
Linebackers, on the other hand, is a position group full of unknowns, and not too many exciting options. We shall see how they turn out, but I'm hoping that the rest of the defense can make the linebackers lives that much easier
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I'm not sure I agree with||
I'm not sure I agree with this. Why would you name a starter before fall practice even begins? Even if Harbaugh has a guy in mind, I take him as the type to induce competition by not naming a starter.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||A few of the guys that I||
A few of the guys that I marked in the table as first year starters fit into the same category as O'Korn or Speight - they may have had previous starting experience at a JUCO /mid-major or filled in a couple games for injured starters in previous years.
For simplicity's sake, I wanted qualify first year starters as guys who did not start the majority of the previous year for their team. It did not come up, but I would not have included 5th year senior transfers as a first year starter.

Is 'playoff' a new brand of epidural?

The thing is, I'd rather see Harbaugh win on the field than on Twitter. Michigan hasn't done shit yet. And something tells me we are not quite at the level that is required to take down Bama yet, either.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I may be in the minority||
I may be in the minority here, but 8 don't really like this kind of thing from Harbaugh. Perhaps it's the social media factor that irks me - if he had said this during an interview or something, I would probably think it's awesome, but there is something inherently annoying to me about talking shit on Twitter.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||"MSU does NOT have the horses||
"MSU does NOT have the horses to match us this year (or the coaches)."
MSU has kicked our asses all over the field for most of the last decade. Sure, they lose a lot, but Dantonio has shown that he can reload when most people don't expect him too. I hope we win, and I think we have a really good chance to, but I'm not sure how you can assume this will be an easy game.
Also, re: MSU coaching, while I won't say I like their staff more than ours, they have proven themselves to be one of the best in CFB with what they've been able to do at State. I think we have an edge in coaching, but it's not as big of one as you think.

We were also very close to losing to Minnesota and Indiana. I hear what you're sayong, but we could also have been 7-5 fairly easily.

Edit: I'm an idiot.
I'll read the article now.

I think Mike Leach would be a good hire for Baylor. Not sure if he'd go, though. He has the offensive mind to use the weapons on their roster effectively.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Is it just me, or is there||
Is it just me, or is there not enough of a gap to justify putting Michigan ahead of tier 2?
Also, I really hate this whole Urban Meyer at OSU thing so far.

To be fair, I'd like to see you try to convince people to move to West Lafayette. Like, willingly.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I agree with other who have||
I agree with other who have said that we should play them fairly regularly, but not every year. With the 9 game conference schedule, playing ND every year wouldn't leave much room to schedule other npn-conference powers. I'd rather see some variety in the OOC schedule.

It was summer IM league softball - a few friends and I threw together a team, and we didn't find out until later that the football team also had a team. We lost, but it was a close game at 6 to 4 or something like that.

I hit a double off of Zoltan Mesko in slow pitch softball - right over Nick Sheridan's head.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I don't think there are many||
I don't think there are many teams out there returning as much talent as we do. And we have pretty good depth pretty much everywhere. #3 seems lofty, but we are set up better than almost anyone else right now.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I don't get why people on||
I don't get why people on here don't think they can reload. They always bring in top ten classes, have Urban Meyer coaching them, and have lost like one regular season game since he took over. They also have a pretty darn good QB coming back and a lot of talent surrounding him.
OSU is not going to fall apart this season. They lose two games at the absolute maximum.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Millennials are||
Millennials are simultaneously the most educated and have the worst job prospects of any recent generation. But sure, we're lazy. By the way, thanks for messing up the economy and the ecosystem!
I realize that you in particular did not do these things, but if you're going to generalize then I am too.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I'm not sure how you||
I'm not sure how you rationalize having shot above Harbaugh. Stanford clearly regrets after Harbaugh left. Not by much, but it was a clear regression
|8 weeks 4 days ago||They return 7 starters, but||
They return 7 starters, but the guys who are replacing those that left are probably better than the returning starters for almost every other team we play. Not to mention, by the time we play them, they will be experienced.
I don't understand how you can overlook any Urban Meyer-coached OSU team. They will be great until further notice. I would be shocked if they had 2 or more losses heading into The Game.
