11/13/2018 - 1:05pm I meant in terms of us…

I meant in terms of us getting blown out and it never being all that competitive and not necessarily the style of the game

11/13/2018 - 1:03pm Also I know we got blown out…

Also I know we got blown out but that was a damn disrespectful preview

11/13/2018 - 12:58pm This is more likely to look…

This is more likely to look like the UNC game from last year than a win for Michigan. The offense just isn't where it needs to be yet to compete with elite teams. I trust Beilein will be able to get them where they need to be but they aren't there right now

11/13/2018 - 11:02am It makes the cost of being a…

It makes the cost of being a student more expensive and is incredibly unfair for students who don't have interest in attending football games.  It is a better model to allow students to seperately pay for football games if they want to go rather than to force them all to pay.

11/13/2018 - 9:04am They aren’t free, it’s an…

They aren’t free, it’s an activities fee built into the cost of tuition that every student has to pay regardless of whether they ever intend to go to a game

Given unbalanced schedules that’s a terrible idea 

11/12/2018 - 2:10pm His twitter doesn't make it…

His twitter doesn't make it seem like he is thrilled. Would be good to see him get some real run against Indiana. If timing is the thing holding him back the best thing for that is live reps.

11/12/2018 - 12:22pm Why you don't like what…

Why you don't like what their model says? They explain what goes into the data and it seems reasonable enough to me.

11/12/2018 - 12:21pm Its about probability. In my…

Its about probability. In my opinion its more likely OU jumps Michigan by destroying a top 15 team than Georgia beats Bama.

11/12/2018 - 12:06pm Can't edit but you are right…

Can't edit but you are right, Texas does have 3 losses. Given they are ranked #19 already though I am still confident they would end up top 15 going into the game with 2 more wins including one over Iowa state. So number of losses is wrong, ranking projection still feels accurate.

11/11/2018 - 1:19pm Poorly is relative but 4…

Poorly is relative but 4 yards a carry and giving up 200 yards rushing to a bottom 5 team is poorly for a top 5 team. We rested a lot of people and clearly didn’t want to be there but those are reasons to not worry about the future, not reasons that show we played well yesterday 

11/11/2018 - 1:05pm Kentucky is 7-3. Who exactly…

Kentucky is 7-3. Who exactly got left out you think should be in ahead of them?

11/11/2018 - 1:02pm S&p is opponent adjusted. We…

S&p is opponent adjusted. We dropped because we played poorly against a terrible team. If Georgia bows out it’s next couple of opponents we aren’t guaranteed to pass them in s&p. But that doesn’t really matter since the committee doesn’t use it

11/10/2018 - 10:39am A lot of people think…

A lot of people think Oklahoma’s offense is the best chance for someone to beat bama. I don’t think the eye test is as clear cut as you make it out to be. Have to keep taking care of business by blowing out teams like Rutgers and Indiana 

11/09/2018 - 9:30am Will be there. Got tickets…

Will be there. Got tickets for $70 this week when I saw prices weren't dropping and there doesn't seem to be that much inventory. I can't imagine a glut of tickets is suddenly going to hit in the next day or two and the ticket demand for this game from Michigan fans is exactly why Rutgers is in the big ten. Way too many east coast Michigan fans for the prices to drop too much.

11/08/2018 - 5:38pm Except the CFP rankings and…

Except the CFP rankings and S&P are ranking very different things. One is predictive of future performance, the other is measuring accomplishments to this point. So this doesn't really prove anything other than teams like BC and Syracuse have outperformed what statistics would suggest they should have done so far this season.

11/08/2018 - 3:25pm Sounds good, thanks

Sounds good, thanks

On your instagram, do you post recipes too or just picture?

11/08/2018 - 9:40am He extended more than a few…

He extended more than a few drives with his legs. Michigan getting back into that game was more about ND going incredibly conservative than anything else. We lost that game, it happens.

11/08/2018 - 9:04am Honestly now a loss doesn't…

Honestly now a loss doesn't do anything for Michigan because they have an injury excuse.

11/07/2018 - 6:17pm Hash bash was the 1 day a…

Hash bash was the 1 day a year I didn’t support legalization. Hated that day and everyone who showed up for it.

11/07/2018 - 2:18pm Oklahoma could jump Michigan…

Oklahoma could jump Michigan, I don't know why people don't think that is possible when we are going to be playing a 7-5 NW in the championship game.

11/07/2018 - 2:10pm Fivethirtyeight has a…

Fivethirtyeight has a projection for if teams win out, their model has a 1 loss OU in over a 1 loss Michigan. That is the scenario that terrifies me.

11/07/2018 - 10:23am Michigan is going to set…

Michigan is going to set basketball back a little this year and win a lot of games in the 50's. It is what it is and you play to your strengths but this isn't a team that is going to be great at shooting.

11/06/2018 - 3:49pm I wouldn't compare what we…

I wouldn't compare what we did to NW to ND. We were down 14-0 and trailed until late in the 4th quarter. ND never trailed and was up by at least a TD for most of the second half. Its two different performances.

11/06/2018 - 3:18pm If Michigan is in the…

If Michigan is in the championship game the game is going to sell out and be expensive.

11/06/2018 - 2:18pm I'm terrified of that game…

I'm terrified of that game being close. Not that we will lose but will just have so much anxiety from a close game and get a stupid injury late. Hell I'd advocate for starting Peters at Rutgers this week I'm so scared of getting Patterson to OSU healthy.

11/06/2018 - 1:42pm Because team strength and…

Because team strength and resume strength are two different things.

11/06/2018 - 12:11pm Not to hijack but the cost…

Not to hijack but the cost of tickets for this game refuses to drop. Any sense of whether buying now or later in the week is the right call?

11/06/2018 - 7:21am I’m not sure we want both Nd…

I’m not sure we want both Nd and osu to lose. I think one or the other is fine but both starts to get a little sketchy if ou and wvu win out and then ou wins twice. At that point we’d have no top 10 wins and our loss wouldn’t be top 10 anymore either. 

Id say a close Nd win, like 17-14 would be great. Nd looks mediocre allowing Michigan to jump them in the rankings but still remain a top 4 undefeated loss. Hopefully harbaugh is helping out his pal taggart with some scouting tips this week 

11/05/2018 - 4:14pm Bama is running with a bunch…

Bama is running with a bunch of small guys at the WR position right now so its not necessary but its certainly a little like the OT recruiting the last two classes where you'd really like to see some guys or you have a chance of 2020 guys having to start real young. Our WR depth could get real scary real fast if DPJ and Black go pro early if we don't land of Ford or some other outside WR target in this class.

11/05/2018 - 10:32am I don't think the school…

I don't think the school should be doing conditional acceptance of commitments (outside of things like outside of football behavior or academics). If you need to see more growth and development from a player tell them they can't commit yet. Once you accept a commitment they should get a spot in the class. I think players should be able to sign letters of intent whenever they want, things like coaching changes, academics, behavior issues can void it, but a scholarship offer should be real from the day it goes out. 

11/05/2018 - 10:24am You'll get shit on for this…

You'll get shit on for this but this is 100% a consequence of the staff being way too willing to take lower rated guys early in the process. They've had to force decommitments a lot of years. The coaches are obviously comfortable with it but it doesn't make it not shitty.

11/05/2018 - 8:37am Indiana isn’t a bad enough…

Indiana isn’t a bad enough team for this level of confidence

Was really hoping for a noon start for this one 

11/04/2018 - 7:56am I disagree we don’t have to…

I disagree we don’t have to worry about impressing the committee. Let’s say MSU beats osu. Even if/when we beat osu that would mean our best win has 3 losses and would just be top 15 at best. Our last statement would be a 7-5 nw team. 

Meanwhile ou could be playing a top 10 wvu team. Yeah if they beat them twice that would mean wvu had 3 losses too but only 2 losses in the regular season and 2 of 3 would be to ou as a mitigating factor. So ou could potentially have Moreno potential to make a statement at the end of the season.

11/03/2018 - 11:01pm Bama has dismantled any pro…

Bama has dismantled any pro style offense for a decade. We’d need to completely revamp our attack for that game 

11/03/2018 - 11:00pm If you are on of those…

If you are on of those people who believe a 1 loss Michigan isn’t a shoe in for the playoff today was a pretty mediocre day. Wvu bearing Texas gives Oklahoma a top 10 win and Iowa and nw losing means Michigan would be playing a potentially 7-5 team in the championship game so no chance to impress in that game 

11/03/2018 - 10:53pm Except he hit dpjs chest and…

Except he hit dpjs chest and not his head or neck so it wasn’t targeting. Since dpj was in the air jumping caused him to hit the chest. It wasn’t targeting and I thought it was pretty clearly not targeting 

11/03/2018 - 6:58pm Did Solomon come back?

Did Solomon come back?

11/02/2018 - 1:15pm Sounds like Gray is gone and…

Sounds like Gray is gone and Ford doesn't sound great if he isn't even convinced to give Michigan an official. Really need an OT and outside WR in this class.

11/01/2018 - 10:16pm He isn’t wrong and it’s a…

He isn’t wrong and it’s a smart move to try to influence the refs to look for it going into the game. Since franklin is a shit game day coach smart of him to try to gain some advantage going in.

11/01/2018 - 11:46am I agree its likely but I don…

I agree its likely but I don't think its quite as clear cut as you make it out to be, we could be playing an unranked 8-4 Northwestern for a conference championship while Oklahoma is playing a top 15 2 loss West Virginia. The committee members are human. If Oklahoma beats a superior team in a more convincing way as the last impression that could matter. Of power 5 teams we will likely have 5 wins over teams over .500 (NW, Wisconsin, MSU, PSU, OSU) Oklahoma will have 4 (Iowa state, Oklahoma state, Texas tech, WVU). 

I think to be 100% sure we likely want Iowa to win out and be the West representative since they would likely be top 15 in that scenario even though that likely drops NW to a pretty mediocre win.

11/01/2018 - 10:51am People fretting about a 1…

People fretting about a 1 loss Bama getting in over a 1 loss conference champion are being panic monkeys. They could do it last year because OSU had 2 losses. 

What I don't understand is why everyone is so confident Michigan clearly gets in over a 1 loss Oklahoma. I don't really care about what happens with Bama, its Oklahoma I am rooting the most against to ensure a playoff berth.

10/31/2018 - 5:08am This is such a short sighted…

This is such a short sighted view point because we lost. If we had beaten Nd but lost to say northwestern that Nd win would be the reason we would get in over a loss Oklahoma for example. Hell even with a loss the boost to the strength of schedule might be the difference.

yes it’s better to play Akron instead and go undefeated but if you do schedule Akron instead you better go undefeated or else you get ranked like Washington state did without much chance at the playoffs

10/30/2018 - 11:46am But there was upside for…

But there was upside for Michigan too. Let’s say Michigan beat ND but lost to northwestern. That win over Nd would allow Michigan to win a comparison with a 1 loss Oklahoma for the last spot. But if Michigan has a loss to northwestern (or Indiana or any other mid level big ten team) and the non conference is Akron, smu, and western we are in the same situation as Washington state is which is knowing that even being a 1 loss champ means you need help to get in. 

Scheduling a hard game gives you a potential buffer win against an upset and the cost is a loss that won’t knock you out.

10/29/2018 - 3:41am 1 loss bama isn’t getting in…

1 loss bama isn’t getting in over 1 loss Michigan or Oklahoma. They’d get in if we have 2 losses 

10/28/2018 - 11:07pm I think it’s 60-40 we’d get…

I think it’s 60-40 we’d get in over a 1 loss Oklahoma but it’s by no means a shoe in. If Michigan wins out that means both osu and psu have another loss. That leaves psu as probably a ceiling of like 15th and osu a ceiling of like 8th. Those are the only two teams you can say with any confidence will be ranked wins at the end of the year. It’s not going to be the strongest resume and it’s unlikely beating whichever team comes out of the west is going to provide any sort of boost while it’s theoretically possible ou could get a game against a top 15 West Virginia or Texas as their last statement 

10/28/2018 - 10:59pm According to the current…

According to the current rankings Michigan doesn’t have a win over a top 25 team. Given how Wisconsin has looked this year you can’t argue they should be top 25 and northwestern still has a loss to Akron to overcome. 

10/28/2018 - 9:04pm Penn states offense is still…

Penn states offense is still good. They put up 30 with an injured McSorley on a good Iowa defense.
