Word on the street is that Dantonio had fettuccine alfredo for dinner tonight. Someone start a thread!

I know this joke is tired - but this is obviously only because Urban doesn't want him.

Also, Matt Mcgloin is 2/4 right now with 57 yards and a 97 QB rating. In other words - cool story bro.

Well, I guess that's one more that will be cheering for Michigan come bowl time. Also, are they really that lazy that their mascot is a guy in athletic shorts wearing a cat head?

Cool. Obviously it really helped the team's performance.

Well, they've won 10 or more games in 3 of the past 4 years. Anyone care to look up how often Michigan has done that?

I think they will be pretty good as well, but I don't think it's out of the question that their defense takes a significant step back (i.e. being only top 20, rather than top 3). Their offense seems to have hit its stride, so they will have an above average unit on both sides of the ball. They will be a 9+ win team.

This is genius. Now you only have to waste 5 minutes and you can hear ALL the shitty pop music!

|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Our linebackers have played||
Our linebackers have played very well this year, if you've been paying attention to Brian's UFRs. While UFRs not the be-all, end-all when it comes to evaluation, they carry more weight than what some radio hacks say about our linebackers based on observations from one game against one of the top offenses in the nation.
EDIT: Ok, fine, Marcus Ray and Andy Mignery are not hacks, but my point still stands. The general consensus is that our linebackers are probably the strongest unit on our defense.

I question the point of writing "Dr. Steve" at the end of your post when it is not only displayed in the upper left of your post, but also in your signature.
That is all.

Which makes the loss all the more frustrating. Ending their 23-0 run and being 1-1 vs Meyer would have been oh so sweet.

About the ND game. In recent years it hasn't seemed like an overly tough road environment. In 2010 we pulled out the win and should have won in 2012. Not sure about who they lose/return, but my impression is that it will be your standard 8-4/9-3 type ND squad.
It remains to be seen how well MSU can recover drom losing almost everyone on D. If Narduzzi leaves it will put another huge dent in that D. I think we can pull out the win if our offense finds some identity (maybe a big if).
NW and Rutgers are gimmes. OSU will be undoubtedly tough but they will probably regress a little after losing their entire offensive line (after all, tjat happens to everyone, not just us, right? Right??) Either way it will be a close game.
I'm thinking 3-2 or 4-1 if things roll our way.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I really doubt that OSU||
I really doubt that OSU schemed conservatively on defense at all, much less after we were up 21-14. While the msu game was an embarrassment, this game was pretty indicative of how Borges wants to run the offense. I'm not sure why the offensive line seemed to play much better this game than any since ND, maybe chalk it up to the rivalry, but the play calling and execution in this game was where you expect it to be. At this point, I'm not sure canning Borges is the answer so much as riding out the storm that is this offensive line.

Did Borges just save his job?

"the staff has proven that they are completely inadequate in developing any sort of talent"
What the hell are you talking about? They took a squad that had never won more than 7 games and won a BCS bowl. I'm guessing guys like Will Campbell disagrew with your assessment, and I'm pretty certain there's a direct quote from Mike Martin saying that this staff is light years ahead of the previous in terms of developing talent. People forget that this is one of the youngest teams in cfb, yet somehow expect sophomores and freshman to play like juniors and seniors. Some of them are. But the number one problem on this team is youth, not coaching.

Wait, they added Gene Smith, like, on purpose?
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Hell, even if Michigan wins||
Hell, even if Michigan wins this game, they likely need to win out to go to the CCG. MSU has the easiest possible schedule (no Wisconsin, PSU, or OSU) and will probably not lose another game, unless they lose to Nebraska. The ideal situation would be a win for Michigan this weekend (obviously) and Nebraska beating MSU. That would give MSU two conference losses and virtually no chance at surpassing UM unless UM loses to someone they shouldn't.

I'm not going to claim that Borges was even close to perfect in games earlier this year, but it's probably hard to call an offense when your offensive line has absolutely zero push and shoddy pass protection and a quarterback that turns the ball over when he's under pressure. The offensive line showed up in this game, and it remains to be seen if that's more because of the opponent (like part of the story, but IU can't be much worse up front than Akron/UConn) or because they are starting to work together well.
