Jim McElwain: “Their guys were bigger and stronger. They whooped us. Plain and simple.”

“I thought we had a good plan obviously. As it turned out, the plan was pretty well foiled by getting whooped.”

DJ Durkin next year.

Kinda humorous, mostly serious. Texas may wind up being awful, but Maryland is showing real growth (in a program that has no business growing) and Durkin has coached for Florida before. 

I'm in favor of getting Durkin out of the division, myself, but the team that needs him gone the most is MSU, which is looking at a ceiling of 5th in the division if Durkin sticks around.

They are a very good foil for Penn State.  They hate them.

Not that we don't get up to play Penn State, but they really get up to play Penn State.

They can knock them off in one of those years where we might come up short in a Happy Valley night game and we need somebody else to give PSU a loss.

You want a good Maryland team. Especially since they run the spread and that helps the Michigan defense prepare for the tree loving horses asses. Awesome seeing Urb'z assistant getting smacked down in Texas. Fuck the the Longhorns. Those fat sows that call themselves men sitting on their gift wrapped oil money to bring wins for their favorite football team.

the grim reaper?  The undertaker?

Not sure why a team with a struggling offense in need of saving the HCs job would hire him again.  He seems really bad at coaching.  Seems like his only positive acheivement thus far is not completely tanking some ridiculously talented Alabama teams even though I'm pretty sure they were the worst offensive teams under Saban.
