I don't like the authoritative and condencending tone of the OP.  Thus:

I don't think Hand will be able to flip Peppers.  I don't think Crawford will turn towards Ohio.  I think they are seriously considering their options, but that as the season settles and Michigan coaches are better able to reconnect, these recruits will feel strengthened in their relationship with the UM family.  And it IS a family.  We are MICHIGAN!

There were a couple holds that were not called and that INT was close too.

Baylor Texas game just got interesting.

What was the spread? Did that OU TD at the end make any difference?

If OSU wins tonight OK may well jump Sparty.  They could be very close to falling out of the top 14.  If Arizona St. beats Stanford they could be in trouble.

I guess its time for the real Big 12 Championship game...  Gotta pull for Texas  - gonna love tailgating with drunk Texas fangirls out in Glendale.

Good ending of the OU vs OSU game.

Did you see the kicker interview after the game?  That dude looks like the most un-football player I've ever seen make a hugh TD during a big college football game.

Good on him.

Who are you pulling for, BAYLOR or TEXAS?

I like the underdog, this year it is Texax. +2 Texas

The long-term program underdog, however, is Baylor. +1 Baylor

I'd like to play Texas in a bowl game - wouldn't happen with a victory. -1 Texas

It might be a little painful to see GERG bring such stability to Texas.  -1 Texas

Baylor 1, Texas 0

sigh.  Being so far down the bowl chain, I can't even root for an outcome that would benefit Michigan.

B10 gets crapped on a lot but the B12 is pretty shitty. Gerg didn't accomplish much, they beat an over-rated Ole Miss, surprised OU and got their ass kicked by okie state.

What a shitty play call there on the 4th down.

Not often you see a 3-0 game with no punts.  It's even weirder watching the ESPN Gamecast, especially when Baylor has the ball.

Edit: An another field goal miss

I like Auburn's coaching aggressiveness.  We need just a little more of that.  I like their speed up offense, going for it on 4th, onside kick.  misdirection running attack.  Yeah, I kind of like it all.
