Torrent-digger.  Just waiting to move to the next streaming-daddy.

Supposed to be Forde in title - autocorrect.  Mods can fix, perhaps?

Clearly Nova is bad this year... /s

Another consideration is the combined OOC schedule strength for the various conferences.  Big Ten doesn't play nearly as large percentage FCS/G5 teams as does the SEC.

Let's look back into the abyss some more!

Where are Rutgers and Illinois?  Those are critical rivalries that define each season!

Damn.  He will be missed.  Excelsior!

11/11/2018 - 9:35pm Obviously a guy with…

Obviously a guy with coaching acumen, but it looks like he hasn't coached at the college level since the 1980s - and never as anything more than a position coach.  I'm not sure the college environment would appeal to him or be a good fit, but I could be wrong.  Analyst position might be a good break for in between NFL gigs - better than an ESPN booth.

So, he's just some... buckaroo?

Our UCLA friend Jim Alexander has Ohio State at #3 and M at #6.  Interesting world.

What about Martellus though?  The FOX announcers loved that guy but he hasn't played much lately,

Are you just now noticing the the Big 12 doesn't play much defense?  This has been a thing for 20+ years.

Two of the largest hockey fan bases in the Big Ten and they relegate this game to BTN+

You believe we will give up 2 safeties to OSU?

That is basically why we have the internet.  Are you new here?

Starters are beginning to get banged up - put in the backups

Not a conspiracy guy, but it's curious that this outcome is best for the winnder of The Game (likely big East champ) to be guaranteed at least a chance for the CFP.  I never count out the sleaziness of Delaney.

11/09/2018 - 10:05pm Good to read about the win. …

Good to read about the win.  No access to BTN+

11/09/2018 - 6:49pm Could have been a nice…

Could have been a nice horror film-esque thread.  People come to see any updates on Dylan's injury, but instead the OP posts a picture of Dylan's collarbone, grotesquely separated from his body and on display for all to see.  At least that's what the title implied to me... honestly a little disappointed.

11/09/2018 - 9:53am Personally, I wouldn't mind…

Personally, I wouldn't mind a situation that would expose how much of a farce this 4 team "playoff" system really is - as long as UM isn't one of the teams that gets screwed over by it.

Classic Northwestern tactic of "some bullshit" - damned poetry, that

11/08/2018 - 8:16am I'm curious how the…

I'm curious how the recruiting worked out from that event - did we get commits from any of the players that were actually there that night?

11/07/2018 - 11:35am I don't buy the narrative…

I don't buy the narrative that Saban is an amazing coach.  He is a very good coach that found himself in two situations (LSU then Bama) that allowed him to create football juggernauts free from much of the restrictions found in other universities.  If he was a great coach, he would been successful in the NFL and MSU.

11/07/2018 - 11:31am Why would they go in Big Ten…

Why would they go in Big Ten now?  They ACC in everything but football (officially, de facto already) and the ACC would be easier for them to win.

No, I'm sorry... the correct answer is M00P

Just show replays of what Jordan Howard did to the defense 2 years ago.  That should be enough.

11/05/2018 - 6:59pm I'm aware.  I'm not saying…

I'm aware.  I'm not saying straight ticket voting should be illegal, I just think it's nice that (for now at least) people need to actually see the name of their candidate of choice before they vote.

11/05/2018 - 4:45pm Or better yet, not rely on…

Or better yet, not rely on Herbstreit so much for games.  He is an above average announcer, but not worth the money and attention ESPN throw a at him.  I would instead have them spend the same amount if money on a few no-name guys/gals that 1) are articulate and responsive enough to call a good game without gaffes and 2) are available to cover their regions without having to jet around the country.

Pour a glass of fine sipping cordial, dim the lights, find a comfy seat and savor every word of the game recap.

11/05/2018 - 2:06pm Say sorry.  Forgive.  Forget…

Say sorry.  Forgive.  Forget.  Cheer like hell for the school and the UM family.

11/05/2018 - 1:21pm The networks have way too…

The networks have way too much power here and wider ADs should see right through it.  What else are they going to show on fall Saturdays - off season golf?  The bigger schools will get paid regardless of what network shows what game, so they should be setting the terms and not the networks.

Because Michigan starting QBs never get injured.

11/05/2018 - 1:04pm Not worth risking Dylan's…

Not worth risking Dylan's long term health just to get him back for a post season game.  He is likely the QB for the next year or two at least - get him ready for it.

11/05/2018 - 1:01pm I think Peters is better…

I think Peters is better than the board is assessing him.  He made some mistakes last year, was hurt, and in an offense that didn't help him out that much.  I think he would do better this year, which should be enough to win all things considered.

11/05/2018 - 12:47pm Even with the double…

Even with the double standards in place, it is not impossible for UCF to get in - it would just require so much chaos near the top that it is almost impossible (and UCF being as flawless as possible at the same time).

11/05/2018 - 12:27pm I would not count on that -…

I would not count on that - would be hard to put in Bama (no championship and late season loss) over a 1 loss P5 conference champ (possibly 2 depending on the Big 12).

11/05/2018 - 12:25pm Winning the Big Ten was…

Winning the Big Ten was always the main goal before the BCS.  Since the BCS/CFP are still just glorified popularity contests, I still care more about winning the conference.

11/05/2018 - 10:22am Clearly it must be that OSU…

Clearly it must be that OSU doesn't really want him.  Right? (for the subtlety-impaired: /s)

11/05/2018 - 10:12am It does raise a serious…

It does raise a serious question about who gets this privilege.  So many of these voters seem like random people from small/regional newspapers.

11/05/2018 - 10:06am Since this issue was brought…

Since this issue was brought up (albeit obliquely) in the write-up, I somewhat like that people can no longer just straight ticket vote and Now actually have to look to see who they are voting in to represent them.  It just seems wrong to me voting for someone without knowing a little about them (or even their name), but that's just my opinion.

11/05/2018 - 8:59am I agree with this -we've…

I agree with this -we've seen OSU play down to competition too often, only to wake up and blowout teams afterwards.  Losing to Purdue on the road happens (which is why the Purdue Harbor term has been around for a while).  Almost losing to a 2-win Nebraska team at home, as a nearly 30 point favorite, will motivate them (and since one more loss locks them out of winning the East).

11/05/2018 - 8:55am Hey, when you have dead…

Hey, when you have dead presidents coming back to make posts about things on sports blogs, it's probably something important.  Good to hear from you again, Gerald!

11/05/2018 - 8:49am I say "understandable" since…

I say "understandable" since you could construct some reasonable arguements for putting either ahead of the other (as opposed to some of the other rankings the voters have, which can be mind boggling at times).  I personally would put UM over UGA just now, but it's all academic right now anyway.

11/05/2018 - 8:46am Normally, I think you would…

Normally, I think you would be correct.  However, since ND would be undefeated and have a win over UM, it may be hard for the committee to put UM before them due to the optics.

11/05/2018 - 7:50am I'm saying that, if that…

I'm saying that, if that voter was approaching the poll such that undefeateds do not drop (reward them for their record alone) it makes some sense at least.  If a voter was approaching the poll as a predictive tool (judging which team is actually better), then it would not make sense.  I am not saying that UCF is a better team than UM.  I bring this up in contrast to putting OSU above UGA, OU, and UM... which has no obvious justification that I can see.

11/04/2018 - 9:22pm Neill Ostrout has UCF at 4…

Neill Ostrout has UCF at 4 and UM at 5 - which at least makes a little sense since all four undefeated would be first in a reward based ranking (if that's what he's going for here).
