|2 days 20 hours ago||Remember Carr?||
Not much different than our fan base with Carr.
|2 days 20 hours ago||I agree||
A ring of honor or equivalent is great, don't retire the numbers.
|1 week 17 hours ago||This seems right||
I thought the defense was always in a good position to stop Indiana but they were just missing tackles. Strangely, this makes me feel better as that seems like more a fluke thing and easy to fix.
|1 week 3 days ago||Based on last year||
I find it highly unlikely the committee will take 2 from one conference. You will have to win your conference or be independent to get in the playoffs. And as we saw last year, being an independent will be a disadvantage as will not having a championship game.
|1 week 3 days ago||Not realistic in regards to pac 12||
You can't say the pac 12 is out but say a two loss Michigan is in the conversation. I suspect in three weeks we will be talking about several two loss teams for the playoffs.
|1 week 3 days ago||You are wrong||
Under the current structure, there is no way a team that is not a conference champion is getting in. Mad being the exception for obvious reasons.
|1 week 4 days ago||You might be surprised||
Football players make relatively little money in endorsements, Peyton's Manning being a rare exception. And outside of Jordan, most athletes don't get endorsements that last long in retirement.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||What?||
Why is that ironic?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Not in the huddle||
He ran around the huddle, to say he was init is a stretch.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Yes||
And I wish they would make more!
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Simple||
Because he hit him in the helmet with his helmet. I think most are upset with the inconsistent manner with which targeting is called. If Bolden was ejected against State, then the second targeting hit on Jake yesterday was beyond a doubt targeting.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||How so?||
I have never seen Vegas use an Athlete's name in their advertisements, unless of course said athlete was being paid.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Not so fast||
From the numbers I have seen, the NCAA games did not make that much money at all. I would bet EAsports was pretty happy to be able to pull the game and not have to worry about taking the blame.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Surprised by the positive reaction||
This is a terrible idea. Do you then just switch the divisions every to make sure they are balanced? You say it was obvious from the start, but the last two years it has not been that unbalanced and who knows what it will be in the future. Maybe a better idea is to divide the conference by region and just tell the teams to beat who is on your schedule. Oh yeah, that is what we already. It works better than trying to balance it when you have no idea who will be good from year to year.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Exactly!||
At the end of the day, I am very happy with the direction of the program. A fluke loss, especially this year, is not the end of the world.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Bolden yes, Henry no||
The refs were terrible, but the Henry call did not end up costing us anything as we stopped them on that series on 4th down and ultimately probably ended up with better field position. That said, the defensive holding call on Lewis, which was wrongly called on #86, cost us an interception and was a very questionable call.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||You hit it||
Big time colleges, or at least those that think they are big time, have been reluctant to hire assistants recently. Durkin is safe for now.......
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Assume you mean he should have got more||
He should be out for the playoffs. That was not even close to a slide, it would be nice to see baseball get this bush league stuff out of the game.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||You got one thing right||
Polls no longer matter. 4 teams are going to the playoff and they will all be conference champions. So you have to win your conference and hope you do so convincingly enough to not be the one left out. Polls and talk before the conference championships are meaningless, as last year showed.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Worth every penny||
I have worked for several D1 universities and there is no doubt he is worth every penny and the same would be true even if he was paid from the academic side. A winning football or basketball program has a huge impact on donations, applications, grants and more.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Betting bs reality||
Could this be purely a function of the fan base? These lines are based on how people will place bets, I would have to believe the much larger Michigan fan base had an affect on this number.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Already announced||
It's at the Cal game this week I believe.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Heading your way||
|8 weeks 3 days ago||I have my doubts||
It's hard to go from getting no votes straight to top 25. That is a lot of teams to jump after beating a team that was only ranked 22nd. Voters tend to be hesitant about teams jumping other teams that did not lose, which is one of the more frustrating things about polls.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Michigan ranked?||
I'd be surprised if Michigan is ranked by than.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Sick of this||
While it may be true, it has certainly shown that Treadwell made a good choice for himself. It is hard to imagine he would be as much of a well known name had he come here. Especially given our QB play the last two years.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||UFR||
I suspect that the OL will look better upon further review. I think much of the problems came from the RB not using his blockers.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Moving on from Smith||
It goes without saying, but Isaac and Johnson are much better at seeing and taking advantage of the holes. Time fo Smith to drop on the depth chart.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||seems about right||
I graduated as an engineer and there were a lot of other graduates that were a bit disappointed what they ended up earning. Many people focus on what the top or average students get, they forget what the bottom students get. Michigan does have a good size engineering school, but it also has a huge liberal arts school, those graduates make very little.
I have mentioned this before on this board and I will say it again. As great as a Michigan degree can be for the top performers, if you find yourself in the middle or bottom of the pact you are no better off than those in the middle or bottom of the pact from any other school and your salary will reflect that. Thus that average number is not as high as some might expect. There is a lot of data that shows if you are in the middle or bottom of your class at an upper echelon school, you would have been far better off going to a lower ranked school and finishing higher in your class. I guess this goes to the old philosophy of making sure you are the smartest person in the room.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Pretty encouraged actually||
I have not been impressed with either of State's victories. I think Oregon was very unimpressive and suspect that victory will look fairly unimpressive with time. I am not saying Michigan is a lock to win, but I think it is closer than this thread seems to imply.
