I took Hawaii +20.5 mainly because it was at a neutral site. I got it by 1/2 point. If in Berkeley I think Cal would've won by at least four TDs. As far as next week I don't think Hawaii will be able to handle our defensive line. Woolsey will get sacked and pressured many times. I think Michigan goes up by 35 points in the first half and starts playing subs in the third quarter. The -42 line is tough to swallow even though I think Michigan can cover it if they played their starters until midway through the 4th quarter. But I think Hawaii covers the spread very late in the game much to the chagrin of Michigan betting guy. I'm staying away from Michigan -42.

I like both Corso and Herbstreit. Corso is a bit of a wild card but entertaining. Herbstreit seems level headed, informed and fair even though he's a Buckeye. I don't think Herbstreit is making any wild proclamations stating that OSU is still the team to beat, well, because they are.

Probably Barry Sanders. Charles Woodson is right up there with him. Honorable mention shout out to Desmond Howard and Ty Wheatley.

Is this gif for real? Pretty funny if true.

Blazefire - I like you but you pulled the goalie on this one.

I will interject and this is pure speculation but there may be some NFL players that could seriously compete with Bolt if they had focused 100% on track as their bodies were developing. A lot of these guys were world class sprinters that chose to mold their bodies in high school more for football (and NFL dreams = $$$) than track. Speaks to the different sports culture in the US.

Being greatest of all time, to me, also means overcoming injury and/or putting yourself in positions and/or knowing your body well enough to avoid getting injured.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Phelps is a master of||
Phelps is a master of multiple swimming techniques over both long and short distances. Bolt is a master of a relative few. For this reason I'd have to place Phelps at the top of the GOAT (greatest of all time) list with a bit of a wide margin I might add.

Well, OP's use of the word was authoritative. So there you have it, it's a real word. I can dig it.

Hold up, is "supposingly" a real word? If so, that's pretty cool.
It's difficult to gauge intel from camp stuff. I think both lines will be great this season. There are a lot of veterans on the DL and perhaps the coaches are not requiring they go full out, i.e. they don't really need to prove much. OTOH, that would be unlike a Harbaugh team to not compete 100% all the time. So, I don't know. We'll see when the season rolls around but I have very high expectations for the defense.

The initial hit by Rashan on Bredeson had some force. I think if he hit me like that I'd end up halfway into the end zone.

The only thing I could think of after reading this is:
Don't believe the hype it's a sequel
As an equal can I get this through to you?

Phil Steele also picked both FSU and Clemson to make the final 4. It's a gutsy prediction because there's a high likelihood that it won't happen. Two teams from the same conference? Doubt it.

I loved Bo but I'd take Harbaugh 7 days and twice on Sunday.

I find it amazing that it took this long to finally evolve to a playoff. Even getting the BCS system took how many years? Although the old bowl system was nice because it was all we knew, I just look back on it and smh.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I wish we were lower ranked.||
I wish we were lower ranked. I mean, if you're in a Power 5 conference it doesn't matter if you're ranked 25th or 5th in the preseason if you win all of your regular season games chances are you'll be in the playoff. Teams may also be less "geared up" playing against #25 vs playing against #5. And having a lower ranking typically gets you a more favorable point spread if you're betting for Michigan.

That right there is a fine lookin' football player. Can I haz MOAR Rashan?

I like it. I like the stripes on the sides too. In fact, I prefer the road uniforms to the home uniforms. I know it may be blasphemous but it's just my opinion.

If you're talking about THAT game then it ended up #2.

Sitting here making hot dogs, drinking a vodka-Sprite Zero-Cran cocktail and thinking about what ESPN's #1 college football game of 2015 will be. Odds on Michigan-MSU? I put it at -500.

If Brian waited only 5 more weeks he could've done a first of its kind Florida-Hawaii UFR mash-up.

I'm envious of WD for two reasons: 1) he is 21 and 2) he can embed videos like a mutha...
BTW, my birthday is Aug. 30. How about a shout out on that day for my 1900+ MGoPoints collected from charitable MGoBloggers since 2008. Cuz my posts typically suck.

Is he sure he doesn't want to retire sooner, like this year er something? Hmm?

Or maybe he'll tear up the B12, as in make the other teams cry for mercy.

Nah, I don't consider that trolling. It's only trolling if you're wearing a Michigan jersey at a Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young concert in East Lansing during, and only during the song "Ohio". That would be trolling in my book.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||My first Red Wings game circa||
My first Red Wings game circa 1978(?). The year is fuzzy but my dad took me to Olympia and I remember how loud it was when the Wings scored. I also remember the wooden bench seating.
After that it was my first Tigers game in 1980. We sat in the upper deck behind home plate. I believe it may have been opening day. Champ Summers hit a home run...well, it may have been a grand slam now that I think about it. Too many alcoholic drinks in the past 36 years have faded my memory a bit.
EDIT: OK, I meant to say 22 years of alcoholic drinks. Yeah, I was gettin' blasted at 7.

To be a brilliant genius in any walk of life I definitely think one pre-requisite is to have a screw or three fairly loose.

Someties they do offer that type of bet. The bookies will put odds on a "rest of field" choice. But this typically only happens if one team or person is an overwhelming favorite. You see this quite a bit in tennis and golf.

The scene in "I Am Legend" where Will Smith is forced to kill his beloved dog. Man, that's always tough for me.
