"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

- FACT - Probably right on the nose with that prediction
- FICTION - I doubt any one person is going to get more than a plurality of carries.
- FICTION - The passing game will be too spread out to cover this. Plus they'll work the underneath stuff a bunch, I'd imagine
- FACT - that's about 2 snaps per game. I can't imagine they'll keep him on the bench if he is what we think he is.
- FICTION - But it'll be close. Cole and/or Kalis will be 2nd team.
- FACT - I think it'll be MSU/UM
- FICTION - I think there'll be a lot of rotation at pass rush positions
- FICTION - Gedeon replaces Boldon for a majority of snaps during the B1G season
- FACT - Sure, why not
- FACT - 8 wins should secure a spot for some noon-time NYD action

I think Bolden is good, don't get me wrong. But I think Gedeon probably has more upside, and entering his Junior year, will be too good to keep off the field. There'll be a lot of split time...I'm just really high on Gedeon.
Plus, you know, #HotTakes

Navy and Vanderbilt.
Navy: I used to love Paul Johnson's flexbone offense there, and wished we had seriously considered him in 2008. They're also so easy to root for. It's literally watching American heroes beating up on Notre Dame with the most fun offense in all of football. What's not to like?
Vanderbilt: I live in Nashville and work for the Vandy medical center. I've gone to a bunch of games since moving here 3 years ago, and got to experience the height of the James Franklin experience. Zac Stacy and Jordan Matthews were really fun to watch, plus it's easy to root for the nerd school of the SEC. The Derek Mason era is going to be rough, but I suppose I'm a fan for life at this point...

This is the only Michigan athletics thing I have ever had a personal connection on, but the day before he accepted the job, my sister-in-law was in New York with some Amway bigwigs, and she found herself eating lunch with Hackett as part of the excursion.

I don't think that many, although the teams they have faced have been incapable of big offensive plays because they are terrible.
The only team to consistently take shots was Notre Dame. There were drives that were seemingly built out of the Tecmo Super Bowl playbook, where Rees just stepped back, and hucked the ball downfield. The plays rarely worked, but the receivers tended to be open, or would draw a PI/holding penalty from Dennard (who did nothing but commit penalties that game).
I agree with Mathlete: the key to this game is hitting those big plays, and forcing the MSU DB's to play against our talented receivers in space. We'll either draw penalties, or Gallon and Funchess will chew up yardage. This also requires Gardner to be solid, or at least Rees-ian in his passes (overthrowing everyone is preferable to turnovers).
ND had a fine gameplan against MSU (the best of any of their opponents by far), and it worked. It wasn't pretty, but you could see they were never panicked, and they simply bled MSU dry over the course of the game. It was punt-punt-punt for a while, but ND never got impatient, didn't make too many bonehead mistakes, and left with a fairly comfortable victory. That's the key.
My biggest concern is that the ND d-line was nigh on dominant throughout that whole game, and I don't know that we have that kind of talent up front to kill drives dead on the reg.

This is the holy grail. Just give up. Braver/smarter men than you and I have tried and failed to unearth it.
Just live with the delay, or put up with Matt Millen.
|2 years 13 weeks ago||Nashville||
Anybody trolling this thread looking for a friendly Nashville establishment, a small (but hopefully growing) contingent of us meet at Bar Louie in the Gulch. They have a decent beer selection, are not overrun with SEC fans, have many TVs, and the managers are Michigan grads.
They're very amenable, and when our crowd is big enough, they'll stick us in a private room.
Oh, and sometimes the awesome cook who lived in Sterling Heights will give us free nachos. Because he's awesome.
Bar Louie: 314 11th Ave S Nashville, TN 37203

Just culling from the dankest nugs of the shittiest fanbase in all of sports. Misogyny, victim blaming, and minimization ahoy!
A selection of comments from various Eleven Warriors stories about the Hyde incident (horrific grammar and spelling obviously not mine):
"The bitch is the agressor, but if Drayer's story is correct then [Hyde will] probably miss a couple games."
"Anyway in reference to hitting a chick there are exceptions."
"I hate the fact that he might have thrown away his season. There's very few circumstances when hitting a female is warranted"
"I hate when women assault a man, then hide behind their gender when there might be consequences."
"The fact that she went on vacation immediately AFTER that shows that the ordeal couldn't have been that serious."
"It was so serious that she put a young mans future in jepoardy yet she couldnt delay her vacation?"
"How about just be held accountable for her actions?"
"Women should really think about what they do or say about crying assault or rape."
"I think too many times we give the female species "free passes" on things of this nature."
"I thing she was entitled to get slapped."
As a social worker who has worked with male perpetrators of domestic violence...this is the kind of shit that they say all of the time. Always her fault.
In summation: fuck Ohio State forever and ever. And if you say or think any of these things, fuck you too.

Dipping is one of those things that is awful and disgusting, and you can't rationalize doing it, but you catch yourself doing it and enjoying it for no good reason.
Kind of like housing a large pizza or a dozen donuts by yourself.
What I'm saying is Kansas should have to self report every time Charlie Weis takes down a Hot N Ready by himself.

I so wish PSU was stuck with Air Force this week instead of Navy. Navy's defense is horrific, and their triple option is not as fearsome as it has once been (I still chose Navy in my Pick em, because seriously, fuck Penn State).
I think AF would probably drub PSU by two or three scores.

I think the offense is going to have a lot of fun on Saturday.
Air Force wasn't equipped to really stymie Idaho State (who was playing catch up for the whole game), so I don't think they have a prayer against Fitz or Denard. I think Denard senses it too. There was a twinkle in his eye at the end of that clip.

I know it's just Idaho State, but Air Force put up 629 yards of total offense, and their senior RB Getz went HAM.
Good test for Michigan. Slightly scary, but good test regardless. Should be fun.
