Irony of using the word stretch when discussing NCAA and UM

Well, it won't be easy,  but if we can somehow get to 6-0, we're a lock since I assume by the time we get to the back end of the schedule where we play the B1G East all those schools will be ineligible and/or playing under an interim coach.

And extra stretching under RR.

08/06/2018 - 7:52pm if you're looking for a spot…

if you're looking for a spot to improve on the D, I'd agree with Safety.  But for most impact on the Team's overall W/L record, D really wasn't the culprit last year.  Yes, PSU torched our secondary and that game wasn't competitive.  But the next highest number of points surrendered was 31 to OSU. Everyone with eyeballs knows if we could complete a short pass that game would have been ours.  Wisconsin scored next highest (other than bowl game) at 24, and that only after our D fatigued following repeated 3 and outs by our offense in the 3rd/4th quarters.  Our offense should be able to put up more than 24 points in every game.  That's why I think all three of the performers (by the OPs criteria) would be on the offensive side of the ball.

The good news (not that my opinion matters) is that I think we'll see drastic improvements from our WRs, at least decent improvement from our OL, and even if you take Peters performance against Rutgers, Minnesota, and first half Wisconsin (pre-injury) as the QB baseline, it's really an upgrade over last year's aggregate QB performance.

nobody would accuse a doctor at MSU of doing anything uneth....  oh, nevermind.

08/06/2018 - 3:35pm no kidding about the review…

no kidding about the review format.  I recently completed mid-year reviews on my team and had a whole lot more meaningful detail than that.  I guess in that particular industry you can just hold up School X, Position Unit Y, years this and that, your results largely speak for themselves and nobody really cares what type of human being you are?

08/05/2018 - 1:22am She's just a long term…

She's just a long term investor.  Aggressively pay down your mortgage and when you have no more house payments you buy tickets and travel to all the games. Of course by then head coach Jay Harbaugh and his inherited championship program may be old news.

I'm 40 years old and have no true memories of listening to Robert Frost Ufer. But God bless his cotton picken Maize and Blue heart could he paint a picture with words and cadence, tone and inflection and above all else a genuine love of knowledge, sport and all things Michigan.

Tom Brady, Jerry Rice, Walter Payton.  Sorry, wrong GOAT list.

In that case I'll go with Galileo, Guttenberg and Berners Lee

06/22/2018 - 9:39am Underachievers, not…

Underachievers, not disadvantaged.

Admittedly haven't read the full article yet, so apologies if I missed the point, but Illinois and Rutgers have no business being on such a list because they both SHOULD be so much better than they are. Large schools with at least regional appeal, lots of resources, etc. I mean Illinois' biggest in state (a very populous state I might add) is Northwestern (who has a strong case to be on the list). Similarly, NJU is a huge regional school in a recruiting bed so amazing it produced Peppers and Gary just a couple years apart.

To me, however, the biggest historical underachiever is Minnesota. Huge school, great metropolitan campus, deep (but remote) history but never a B1G contender.

Not a doctor and didn't sleep at a Holiday Inn Express, but golly I hope that combo is the rare exception.

Congrats on the home. Even the cheapest swill should taste better in a place that's yours. And once you've paid the mortgage it will taste even sweeter (or so I assume - still paying mine)

It's a shame that in this era of modern medicine there are still so few published studies on effects of diets high in opposing quarterbacks on the human heart

03/15/2018 - 6:43pm More than any other part of

More than any other part of your post, I appreciated the crossing i's and dotting t's statement.  I try to use the same analogy myself because I would't want "dotting the i" to be confused with any buckeye tradition (and as I'm sure you're aware the first script Ohio was actually done by the MMB as a salute to their opponent).

High 2* at soooo much of life. 85th percentile in most things. I feel like years from now I'll look back and wish I settled for mediocrity in a few to be top tier as a dad/husband, but at least everyone will be fed and clothed.

12/04/2017 - 5:13pm That Mike Leach coached Air

That Mike Leach coached Air Raid offense is going to be playing in ideal field conditions and perfect weather against Sparty's secondary.  I have a feeling there are going to be some sick burns there that make the Harbaugh/Mork back and forth seem pretty kind.

Hold it at the Rose Bowl. Maintain tradition of the B1G champ playing there. Am I doing this right?

11/29/2017 - 12:47am And considering how much OSU

And considering how much OSU falls up in recent history (Wilson, Schiano... kind of an extension of replacing Tressel with Meyer), which displaced head coach would they land to replace them? Super recruiter Mora? Sumlin? With their deal with the devil luck, they wouldn't replace anyone with "champions in life" Butch or the shark lover McElwain. I'd be okay if they stick with the known commodities.

He took good not great recruiting to BCS and a show cause penalty before fleeing to the NFL

11/19/2017 - 6:48pm As others have said, I can't

As others have said, I can't imagine Harbaugh's seat ever getting hot. Outside a Woody-style punching of a player, he leaves on his own terms - retirement or NFL

I too love the 9am kickoff. Only problem is that on game days my heart clock is still on EST so when my wife asks what time the game is and I say noon, she doesn't understand I mean 9 PST

09/29/2017 - 9:27am Totally false narrative

Totally false narrative invented by pro-Bartman types. Fact is that we were this close to bi-partisan cooperation on all key issues, cures for all diseases and global peace before Bartman screwed it all up
