You never know what'll happen with Wilton or whoever we recruit until then. Also, by that point he should have a (hopefully) very veteran, dominant offensive line and a junior Damien Harris to hand the ball off to.

Whoever the QB is, he won't have a shortage of weapons to give the ball to. Especially if Peppers is still around.

Michigan is ranked #10, but mostly becaues O.C. Loeffler is breaking in a new QB.   MGoBlog is split 50/50 on whether we should start true freshman Blontavious Margolionezstein or 5th year-senior, former walk-on, Chad Collins-Brady (Wilton Speight is a returning 1st team all-B1G tight end and is wearing Riermesma's legends jersey). 

And of course, even though Michigan is starting five 5th year seniors on the Nation's best O-line, many of you are bitching that the true freshman 5-star kid from Ohio should should start at Left Tackle because he's "college ready." 

Coach Narduzzi's Gators are ranked #11.

Cincy and Air Force at home plus the big 10 slate

MSU / Rutgers / Minny / Ohio State

Should be an interesting season but only 6 games

Would have preferred this game during a 5 home game B10 season

1) did you see the '18 schedule. Isn't that the year we get Nebraska and Wisconsin in our crossover games from the West Division? No thanks. That schedule is hard enough.

(2) why the hell does Brandon feel like he has to revisit many of the bad memories of our recent past. First scheduling App State and now a return to Jerry-World.

(3) why the [email protected]&K does Brandon keep selling away all the potential good home and home series. Did he not hear all the criticism and bitching the first time he did this. The fact that Brandon doesn't seem to listen to or give a crap about the general fan base of Michigan really pisses me off.

He didn't hear it because it wasn't there. Maybe the donors and ex-players liked the idea. I think it's a great idea, especially in a year where he really does not have room for a home and home against a potentially tough team. This game basically replaces ND and in the years after this the already have a tough opponent scheduled. Or at least potentially tough. He got a what will be a prime time game scheduled with lots of exposure, which is good for the program. A ton of fans from Michigan will be there, so it's not bad for the fan base. And for once you can't say he is doing it for the money, because we all know they won't make more money on this outing.

The whole "exposure" thing is only good for the program if we win, or at least lose close in an epic thriller. If we go down there and get our asses handed to us again, the only exposure we will have gained is more along the lines of a laughing stock from a weak conference. This type of game should be between two perennial top-10 teams. Here's hoping we make it back to that point over the next three years, otherwise this game could do more harm than good.

A win over a meh Florida team does more to help us than a win over a good ND team. If we beat ND, everyone just assumes it's the same old Notre Dame. Even if Florida has a down year, it's still a traditionally elite SEC program, which does wonders for your SOS if you beat them.

Especially as a Big Ten team.

How do you figure?  While FL is a gamble, the rest of the OOC games aren't exactly examples of strength and the B1G could weak.  I think this is more of a recruiting move and to show we're back.  Gives Hoke 3 more years to get his players fully functional and rocking.  Assuming that is what happens.

Hate the neutral site games.  Just takes everything that's fun about the college game and flushes it down the shitter. 

Like scheduling these teams, just find a way to put them on campus. Theirs and ours. 

 

I see as usual, Don said it much better. /\

is a turd of epic proportions.  Maybe its Brandon's fault or maybe this is just the reality of college football these days where "elite" programs refuse to do home and homes, but either way it sucks.
