Night Game struggles?

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on June 24th, 2018 at 5:33 PM

Anyone have any idea what could be the problem?

Night games in the Harbaugh era-

  • 9/3/2015 at Utah, L 17-24
  • 10/31/2015 at Minnesota, W 29-26
  • 10/8/2016 at Rutgers, W 78-0
  • 11/12/2016 at Iowa, L 13-14
  • Orange Bowl v. #10 Florida State, L 32-33
  • 10/7/2017 vs Michigan State, L 10-14
  • 10/21/2017 at #2 Penn State, L 13-42
  • 11/4/2017 vs Minnesota, W 33-10

We are 3-5 and dangerously close to being 2-6 had the epic goal line stand not happened at Minnesota in 2015.

Don Brown is a Dude

We already know this but it is still nice to be reminded sometimes...

Some really cool stats highlighting just how dominant Don Brown has been as a DC over the past 3 years!

Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor is ranked #1, though in the article they rightfully point out Wisconsin has a great offensive line. Ohio St has 2 RBs in the list. But again, I think their offensive line has to be given credit, not just the RBs running ability. (That Ohio St offensive line was essentially built by Ed Warinner.)

This ranking is not a pre-season ranking. It's where Athlon predicts teams will be end the season ranked on January 8, 2019, the day after the National Championship on January 7:

This is not a preseason 130 ranking of teams going into the season. Instead, this ranking takes into account where we project teams to finish after the national championship in January. Athlon Sports projects where every team will finish in the final rankings at the conclusion of the upcoming season.

This will be one of the more interesting comment sections in this series.....

Though only having a short experience at playing football, 2019 OT, Danielson Ike, (6'6", 300) is already a 4 Star, and has an impressive offer sheet. Michigan, Stanford, Nebraska, Alabama, and Louisville, among others, are on the quickly growing list. Miami had held a "100%" crystal ball for him. But, the coach at Miami that had been recruiting him left Miami for a position at Alabama. Since then, contact between he and Miami has fallen way off.
