The responsive mobile sight is extremely frustrating to view in locations with limited or intermittent reception, see eg, the NYC subway system. 

11/13/2017 - 1:50pm KFaTAotW totals

The totals for KFaTAotW are off. Brian gives #1 = 3 points, #2 = 2 points, and #3 = 1 point. When he started doing ties, against Cincinnati and Air Force, he split the points among the tied players. But since Purdue, each player in a tied position got the full amount of points.

I️ think the new rule makes sense. The are fake points we’re talking about. But the tied players from the Cincinnati and Air Force games should get a retroactive bump. New totals would look like this.

10: Bush

6: Hudson

2: Kinnel, McCray

01/29/2016 - 1:36pm What about OL experience?

Question for the next case study: Any correlation study on OL experience & YPC.  I would have guessed that that has a larger effect on YPC than RB exeperience (which looks to be near nil).

Mortell made up the category and then awarded it to himself. Well played, sir, well played.

I believe this is not the first time he's done a similar thing. Makes sense, he wants championships and better players around him.

The_Knowledege is hedging again.   "Will unhappiness turn to happiness eventually?"  -  Logically, that must happen. If the hire succeeds, fans will be happy.  If the hire fails, he'll be fired, and fans will be happy. 

10/05/2014 - 1:49am My take on Rutgers. Fans were

My take on Rutgers. Fans were docile, my only away game comparisons being Penn State and Uconn. Fans would make comments towards us but with no vitriol. Fans had a very low football IQ. I think I knew more of their players (2?) than the season ticket holders around me. They could not grasp the concept of horse collars, PI, clock stoppage, and Gray Nova having not being good before. Student section was solid, loud and coordinated. Michigan fans were about 20 to 25%. Good showing, but UConn last year was legit 50-50. Not sure they would have rushed the field but for the police presence to prevent people from rushing the field. Bathroom situation was silly and slow. One side of the stadium, the end zone away from the video board, looked like a high school stadium.

Nice place, but that's Buckeye country.  I suggest your Hotel room, less you get heckeled with comments about The Horror.  

02/13/2014 - 1:03pm Aarball...bench reaction

My favorite part about Aarball is the Ohio bench reaction --- there is absolutely none. Whenever an M player puts up a 3 in a similar situation, the bench rises in anticipation of a bucket. The Ohio bench seems to already know the disappointing outcome before anyone else, like an inverse bizaro Josh Bartelstein.

I mean #TheRuturn doesn't lay out a time table for return to the court, but the fact that he's rising and grinding suggests progress on his condition.  It's good news, at the least.

I was suprised to see the night games and afternoon games with higher viewership than the early games.  I guess there is less competition among other games and/or the west cost is waking up late.  Do you think this is part of the reason Michigan had so many late games? Putting a desirable team in a "high output" time slot should result in even higher ratings. Also, how does playing on BTN effect viewership numbers?


I'm actually curious about a team like Uconn.  They played 5 (!!) night games (Townson, Maryland, Michigan, Louisville, & at Temple).  I remember being suprised that M was a night game, because they already had 4 night games scheudled.  How much do they benefit in viewership by playing so many night games?

01/22/2014 - 10:16am Cheerleader reaction on the pull back three

On the orginal broadcast angle of the pull back three, look at the female cheerleader under the basket seated closest to the M bench.  She senses impending doom as the Stauskas releases the ball, has a near double face palm when it drops, and then quickly composes herself (there was still time for the perfect cheer).  Pretty classic.

I was also bothered by the fact that the flag in M-Wolverine's avatar displayed an M logo that is no longer licensed Universite and discontinued several years ago.

M-Wolverine sucked.  Glad to see him go.  I'm a frequent reader for many years, but I don't comment often.  I'd specifically avoid commenting on threads where M-Wolverine was involved.  He would really be suffocating to discourse.  I was frankly suprised to see him banned, but kudos to Brian for pulling the trigger.

I haven't read FFFF in about a year. Ace's break down skills have become much better and I really enjoy the mini picture paging. FFFF is now required weekly reading. Good job, Ace.

I moved since the football preview was sent out.  Can I update my address for this one?

09/25/2013 - 10:15am GIF Suggestion - Missed One - First Down Fail

The last Uconn offensive play, where it was 4th and 29, the receiver (frighteningly) caught the ball for a 26 yard gain.  A full 3 yards short of the marker, the receiver pops up and signales first down.  Pretty sweet fail.  I saw it live, so I’m not sure if there was good video of the move, but I saw it later again on SC highlights too. 

09/23/2013 - 10:28am Defensive Stat

Gardner was credited with one (1) tackle.  I believe he touched the DB down after his first INT.  (I realize there is no need to touch a player down in college, but that's what it looked like to me).

Yeah, I'm sure there's a Clowney cam each game.  It's what the people want to see.  That being said, it is a bit lame.  At least Manziel is on notice of the camera.

09/08/2013 - 5:56pm Devin Photo, all timer

Good god, that top Devin photo is an all-timer.  Upchurch takes nice game photos, but this one packs so much meaning into one photo, I'm amazed.  There's UTL2 (and all the hype/riveraly assoicated with that), Ole' 98, and Devin's ferocity.  It's so artistic it almost looks like a drawing. Bravo sir, bravo.

Red Bank Catholic (RBC) is ranked #10 in New Jersey by Max Preps, so this isn't against terrible competition. FWIW, Pepper's Parumus Catholic team is #1 in the same poll. It was updated today.

I've spent several hours reading these today.  I hate the preview crunch. We're only half way through!

Co-sign the OP. Big fan of Myerburg, and he is a good follow on twitter. This was a remarkably detailed preview when he's pumping one out for every FBS team. He did miss the Marvin Robinson transfer, saying he was in competition for safety, but I'll let that slide. Very fair preview and prediction from an "outsider."
