Obviously the refusal to call Michigan State a more important game is a sign of disrespect to Mike Dantoni

Regarding FEI, it still has some of the preseason projections as input, which is why you see weird stuff like Michigan having a better Game Efficiency (which is unadjusted for schedule) and clearly tougher Strength of Schedule than both Ohio State and Michigan State, but still being behind OSU and just barely in front of MSU. Those preseason projections are why FEI is more skeptical.

Wisconsin probably was looking at highlights of their tournament run to the title game, said "goddammit it looks like our players are wearing fanny packs" and that was that.

"This is the play that Ojemudia is hurt on, which is crazy: this is basically a non-contact injury."
Which is how you knew it was very bad.

He obviously either was showing it around on his phone, or sent it to others. Otherwise, there's no way anyone even knows about it to result in charges.

I don't blame him much for the roughing call. Needs to take a better angle to avoid blasting the punter, but I don't know how he didn't get a hand on that given where he was.

The cap is 85 at all times. Harbaugh can't stop someone from enrolling early, but they might not have a scholarship available to give for the winter/spring. Paying their own way, especially for out-of-state recruits, isn't a viable option oftentimes.

I didn't mind it, and an onside that goes farther than a typical one is a good option there. You don't put them practically in field goal range already. And I think it was calculated that either MIchigan would recover, or it would goad Maryland into passing the ball instead of just kneeling on it (which they likely would have done if the kick had gone deep). But if Maryland throws the ball, with that turnover machine at QB, you have a shot at getting the ball in great field position that way too even if you don't recover the onside kick. And then you potentially get another shot on the punt to either try to block it or a Peppers return.
Didn't end up working out, but didn't hurt them either. Kind of thing you can do when your defense is eating the other team for lunch and you have a returner who you think can break one.

Their defense has been very good. The stats and the eye test agree on that one.
Their running back is decent but their offense is not good overall.

Blows, if it had to happen a shame it didn't happen a game or two earlier to give him a shot at a med redshirt if he wanted it. Dude was playing great this year too.
Injuries: you get the death stare.

If you were a Michigan fan pre-Rich Rod you absolutely can believe a team going into a shell and letting the other team back in it.
Hell, Tennessee has blown 3 double digit leads this year, something that wasn't uncommon 'round these parts when DeBord ran our offense as he does there. Remember that old crazy stat how we were more likely to win if we were down a TD entering the 4th rather than up a TD?

|1 week 4 days ago||For any "buy at the game"||
For any "buy at the game" there's also ones to wait or to watch for certain prices, i.e., keep going to the site and looking. So, they get extra clicks for whatever ad money they get on their site, and the feature drives traffic there to buy as well, so they get whatever commission they get from your purchase.
If anything, this feature is a way better piece of advertising for them than any actual advertising they can do on the site, and since the feature tells you when not to use said sponsor's services in some cases, it's not the pure "sponsored content" garbage that is infesting publications all over. Provides useful, truthful information and recommendations, but still directs traffic to the site in a way a banner ad, or even simple mentions in content, never could/would.

They were both actually already good last year. More coaching, another year of training, and they're even better.
Too bad the younger brother isn't another Glasgow beef machine, instead he's a 6'1" 200 lb. guy currently listed as a safety on the roster. Wonder if he'll make the 3rd Glasgow walkon to end up contributing eventually.
Also, thank god Tressel lost his job when he did, because Graham was originally going to walk on at Ohio State and not Michigan. If he had gone there, Ryan may have followed.

The picture I've been getting from Maryland boards is we were going to have more fans there than they did this Saturday, so the night game atmosphere probably wouldn't have been a big deal

It certainly helps our chances when you've got mom on the visit and really pushing the academics angle. Anytime we can see that I'll take it as a positive for our chances vs. the Bama/Auburn/LSUs of the world

The edge of the probability cone still comes very close to that area, so I wouldn't bank on that just yet. If the storm center gets that close, conditions will be horrendous.
I don't know how far in advance they want to make the decision on whether to move the game time. Obviously, if they can wait another couple of days the predictions will be a lot better. They'll probably want to plan such that people will have time to get home before anything hits if it's going to affect the area at all.

I mean, if in the next month they announce that a contract is signed to resume the Michigan/Notre Dame series, it might be the greatest 1st year of an athletic director since ever.

LSU has a QB they barely allow to throw. He averages about 6.5 yards per attempt and has a grand total of just over 300 yards passing in 3 games. Thing is, few teams can stand up to that offensive line and their bevy of talented RBs (it's not just Fournette). And the QB can run too.
