at least it's not just us?

|5 days 14 hours ago||The problem with the Big Heart Race was ...||
that it was marketed as if it was affiliated with the school even though it wasn't.
That means that anything potentially shady that happens over there could have negative impact on the school itself, which is a risk that that the school shouldn't have to take on.
|1 week 1 day ago||This statement is really just a way to say||
that the staff at Michigan will always look at the holistic performance of a given player to decide if they will be on the 2-deep or not instead of looking at seniority, etc.
We hear it often in the context of some highly touted recruits so I think it's more of a way to assure them that they will get a chance to start...if they live up the expectations that the coaches have.
|1 week 4 days ago||Just wait a year...||
and your wishes will be granted :)
|2 weeks 2 days ago||This is just a rumor - I||
This is just a rumor - I would hold off on speculation until collarborated.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||It ranks up there only if...||
we put in the context of the dissaapointing 2013 season and how much heart the team showed in playing better than ever have been this season (at least on Offense).
Taken by the game as a stand-alone event I think it loses its luster a bit, although it probably will rank as one of the better games in the rivalry.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Wouldn't Nebraska be a shoe-in for this game?||
At least, that's what I was assuming given their Big 12 ties.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||When do we find out for certain?||
I have made New Years plans but depending on the location I'll consider a flight out.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I think it's reasonable to expect...||
that our defense to be better next year compared to this year since we don't lose much in the way of senior talent and we get Peppers(hopefully).
Offense is an interesting question since we lose Gallon and Lewan. I think our running game will be much improved but our passing game may take a step back. It'll all depend on how much Drake Harris and Amara Darboh live up to their billing. Hoping a more experienced & healthy Gardner will be the difference maker.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I would love to be proven wrong...||
but a Gator bowl trip is almost guaranteed at this point.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||How does the data look like...||
if we remove the tackles and just look at the interior line? I think that's the real crux of the issue.
Once you add the tackles in Michigan looks a lot better because we have a lot of experience there.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Isn't there a cap on early enrollees?||
I thought the cap was 6 but I guess I'm wrong here.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Wasn't this the main reason||
that Miller started out as center?
Gotta take the good with the bad, I suppose.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Looks like we're still ranked in Coaches..||
|10 weeks 5 days ago||From a pragmatic perspective||
I like the idea in theory but in practice this can really screw up teams that lose a lot of players from coaching turmoil/injuries. The inability to use true-freshman to pick up slack for those type of teams will mean potentially playing with less than 60 scholarship players at any given time.
If this is coupled with higher scholarship limits (maybe 100 instead of 85) then I think this is a reasonable move.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||This means that it'll be on ESPN3?||
If so then I guess it's fine...
|13 weeks 4 days ago||After re-watching the game...||
It looked like the D-line actually got decent push - the problem was that they all seemed to push into the same point and basically all cluster around the center of the line, making it easy for the QB to step out of the pocket and make a play or, even worse, tripping over each other and taking themselves out of the play.
It looked like they're so focused on beating their man sometimes that they don't have enough awareness of what's going on around them :|
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Wow - jumping tackle Woodson did||
1) Super impressive
2) Is it legal?
|13 weeks 5 days ago||This image disagrees|
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Eh, disagree.||
Michigan's performance aside Wisconsin got robbed of a possible win and some of the losses were much more competitive than I thought it would be - especially Illinois.
The ones that really hurt were ours and Nebraska :|
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Is it just me...||
Or is the Big 12 utter garbage this year?
|15 weeks 5 days ago||The last time something like this was hinted at in Twitter...||
it was a story about fly fishing with some SEC HC.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Green looked a bit gassed after just a few reps though...||
think he still need a bit more conditioning to be an every down back although he was in good in the reps that he did get. I think Smith is ahead of him for now.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Considering they moved to GA for all students..||
this is a good way to ensure that at least they'll get to their seats quicker
|18 weeks 4 days ago||How small is the 2015 class expected to be?||
Smaller than the 2014 class?
|21 weeks 1 day ago||Why would||
Why would he take a step down in power to take a NCAA head role?
|22 weeks 2 days ago||I believe the match up is against ACC...||
I wonder if that's the only tie in or if it'll also be part of a 3/3 rotation with some other conference.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||I think I see how parity schedule will work based on this..||
Seeing as how the crossovers will be 1 home&home + 2 rotating, it looks like the top schools from each division will be guaranteed home & home games with each other whenever they are available.
Notice how Michigan skips Nebraska on the 2017 schedule, suggesting that they will be part of the h&h in 2018.
I'm 90% sure that the 2019-20 schedule crossover for Michigan will be
2019: Neb, @NW, Illinois
2020:@Neb, Iowa(next h&h), @Minn

No offer, although maybe one would come later if they shifted on someone
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Just repainting the whole thing costs $6M...||
so this is pretty much what I expected.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||I hear they're both early enrollees...||
if so, sounds like we still have room for 4-5 more?
