Are we talking about the same OU that has given up 46 and 47 points in regulation in the past two weeks? and gave up 48 to Texas? and had to use OT to get past Army? Their Offense may be good, but their D is downright offensive. ...

They probably won't get past WVa. Look at the three teams in that scenario: Michigan (road loss to #3 ND), OU (neutral loss to 20-25ish Texas), WVa (road loss to 15ish ISU). They match up well with a one-loss Ohio St, but not with Michigan.

What if the selection committee is looking at:

  • Bama 12-1 (Loss to UGa)
  • Georgia 12-1 (Loss to LSU)
  • Michigan (loss to ND) or OSU 12-1 (loss to PUR)
  • ND 12-0
  • Clemson 12-1 (loss to BC)
  • Wazzou 12-1 (loss to USC)
  • OU or WVa 12-1 (Loss to Texas/ ISU)
  • UCF 13-0

Chaos. I'd be rooting for it if we weren't a likely victim of it. I still think we have to beat our final four opponents with authority to avoid the risk of chaos.

I always prefer to use the definite article "teh" with "Rutger", because, as Michigan's arch rivals are wont to do, they but a "The" in front of their name (see: "the Oiho State"). Since Rutger would probably bungle the spelling of "the" as much as they do with the forward pass, it's "teh Rutger" as far as I am concerned.

Did he also have 5 INTs, because Rutger threw that cherry on top of their passing prowess vs MD.

Perhaps he's trying to avoid mixing "boat raced" with "motor boated", which has an entirely different meaning.

I advise everyone to read this thread on twitter. It's an exercise in critical thinking. D'Comproni shows a zoomed in picture of Bush being held back and claims it was because he was going after a "50-year old grandma". A responding poster posted the full pic and he's actually yelling at one of the MSU "stormtroopers". Wow, Jim, you're not only a shit bag, but a lying shit bag. As George Carlin said of Mickey Mouse: "I hope [Jim] dies lonely and forgotten behind a soiled baseboard..."

10/16/2018 - 11:48am I think what he's saying…

I think what he's saying with these rankings, based on S+P and SOS, is that PSU should be ranked 4th. It shows that they are under-performing, which is true.  MSU/ PSU was a game where PSU vastly out-performed MSU, but failed... failed to pick off somewhere close to 4 passes that were right there for the picking - including a straight drop on the last drive. This is how you lose a game when you are playing a team close to #50 at home when you are close to #4. 

10/15/2018 - 1:21pm They may have to pass better…

They may have to pass better than 2-17, 8 yards, and 5 INT versus teams like Maryland to make it happen though. Maybe.

I'd much rather play ND again than any of Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Texas, Clemson or Oklahoma.

There is a decided negative slope on the graph below, with a strong correlation. Teams with above average sack rating tend to have less plays per holding call in their favor. Michigan's position on this graph is astounding.

They'll call holding on Higdon to make sure it happens.

I just glad that Chase didn't get called for holding, himself, ala Higdon.

Texas seemed to turn the lights on mid-way through the USC game. They are a very talented team, but they played like crap before half of that game - losing to MD and eeking one out against Tulsa. 

10/01/2018 - 9:42am He wasn't wrong in saying…

He wasn't wrong in saying any of that stuff though. They did lose to Arkon and Duke. They also lost their #1 back. It was a neutral site game at best for NW... None of that was wrong, but that's why we play the game. NW came out and hit a couple big plays on us. NW is not good though. Besides the aforementioned losses to medicore teams, they blew a 17-0 lead at home to a team that had never come back from a -17 hole under coach Harbaugh.  After the 1st quarter, that was a 20-0 game, and should have been more with out some specious calls to keep NW in it.

Actually from his position, I'd use the overhead elbow.

Despite being a joke, this is actually one of the reasons why I always block ads. You simply cannot trust served ads... Then there's the NSFW ones and the blinky-flashy ones that send you into a seizure and the cookie-based ones that think they know about you but are horribly off...

Ditto. And since I am in Florida, I had to explain to the FSU and UF fans that I am not laughing at them for getting waxed by Syracuse or Kentucky, but rather laughing at the Rutger... which is kind of like the Syracuse of the ACC or Kentucky of the SEC...

This is the same sentiment I have. I spent 7 years in Cleveland. Almost to a person, they'd be nice unless you said you (A) went to Michigan, (B) support Detroit area sports teams (except the LOLions), and (C) root for the Steelers instead. Then it was pure nastiness. Fuck em. Fuck em all.

Absolutely. He's getting double and triple teamed on most plays and blatantly held on others.

Even so, it's brutal. I went to LSU @Florida a couple years ago. It was a 3:30 kick and fortunately for me our seats were on the shaded side of the stadium. The east side was baked for most of the game - including the visitors bench. LSU was decidedly worn down by the 3rd quarter.

This is one of the nice things about Discus - you can block users from your feed. That type of feature would make it so the trolls end up yelling at an empty room.

I was one of a few students who commuted to main campus. I had a 9:00 am class on the second floor of the College of Pharmacy, so I didn't have a clue what was happening. I arrived to class and was the only one there. I looked outside and noticed the leaves changing and a bright blue early September Michigan sky. As gentle breeze fluttered them, I checked my planner to make sure I was in the right place, but before I could get there, my classmate opened the door and told me the news. We sprinted to the break room and watched in horror as the news came in. This is a moment that is burned into my memory.

Not sure why we cannot fit a sensor at the top of the goal posts... this is technology we should use.

Vegas Insider has us as -35.5 right now with an open of -34. SMU is really bad. They got hammered by North Texas (down 36-0 going into the 4th quarter) and had a monsoon-aided 9-0 lead turn into a 42-12 rout in a rivalry game with TCU. Ah, the old Iron Skillet game. I think we cover rather easily. 59-10.

Western got eviscerated by a mobile QB (Dungey). We do much of the same, M 59-6.

I'll wait until after the NW game to make any predictions. WMU and SMU won't tell us much. Who knows on Nebraska right now.

Houston is a solid team that was riddled by injuries. I can see them doing it. Denver too, but Keenum? Woof... I just don't see the Browns winning more than 6 games this season.
