Ron Bellamy? RUBAS?

09/24/2018 - 8:14pm It’s a possibility. There…

It’s a possibility. There are 4 slots for 5 P5 champions and ND. That assumes that no conference gets 2 teams in. 

It could easily be ND, Bama, Stanford and then your pick of the B12, ACC, and B1G champs.

What is the SEC’s big non conference win?

09/24/2018 - 3:46pm Maryland and Indiana should…

Maryland and Indiana should also be double digit spreads.

09/24/2018 - 2:06pm It's a bit of both. When we…

It's a bit of both. When we played ND, we looked pretty average, but against the cupcakes (lol Nebraska), we looked like rock stars.

I actually LOL'd reading this and promptly emailed the article to my wife who then complained that I have too much time on my hands

09/24/2018 - 10:07am Vegas odds are not…

Vegas odds are not reflective of accuracy, but of trying to get the even bets on both sides. Vegas doesn't make money by wins or losses and doesn't even care who wins since they make the vig.

09/23/2018 - 8:47am OP, I’m from Jers and almost…

OP, I’m from Jers and almost all of my HS friends and fam went to RU. 

They don’t care about the jokes about their football team. Go to a game. Their tailgates are awesome and maybe 40% of the people don’t even go into the stadium. 

That said, don’t make fun of the academics. That will piss off RU fans ASAP 

09/22/2018 - 3:42pm No, but I wasn’t looking for…

No, but I wasn’t looking for it. Maybe Michigan didn’t need to show it today. 

09/21/2018 - 7:53pm BK not only kept his job, he…

BK not only kept his job, he’s like the longest tenured coach at ND since like Ara. 

09/21/2018 - 7:52pm Look, I know a kid died, but…

Look, I know a kid died, but if child rape (PSU), teen rape (MSU) and wife beating (OSU) of multiple victims doesn’t move the moral compass, why should one kid’s death?

09/21/2018 - 2:10pm Yes, but they are a distant…

Yes, but they are a distant 4th and our hatred of Scott Frost could have them replaced by UNL at 4 if Nebraska stops sucking.

Our Football Rival list goes like this:

1) OSU

2) MSU

3) ND (note MSU jumped ND after we stopped playing annually)

...

4) PSU

5) Iowa (because of the lack of medical care for Speight)

6) UNL

...

7) Minney, Purdue, Northwestern

...

10) Rutgers (only because they have beaten us and MD hasn't)

11) Maryland

09/21/2018 - 10:41am OP, thanks for the info but…

OP, thanks for the info but I stopped reading here

Now obviously we can't blame this all on Drevno. He's only the RB coach

 

I understand Drevno isn't  popular guy around here, but blaming him for USC's offensive trouble makes no sense. He's the RB coach. It's like blaming JBaugh for our own O troubles. Sure he may be a contributing factor, but there is an OC & HC above him.

09/20/2018 - 10:10am I think it's due to the…

I think it's due to the uncommon humidity in September. I mean, it's 75 degrees outside, but 85% humidity. That's not common for mid-September.

09/19/2018 - 3:04pm It’s not what has Gene done,…

It’s not what has Gene done, it’s what he hasn’t done and that’s get in Urban’s way. 

09/19/2018 - 12:53pm Their QB is a walkon. If…

Their QB is a walkon. If Martinez plays, he may be limited and will likely not finish the game. I watched the game Martinez played in and Nebraska will be very good very soon, just not this Saturday.

09/19/2018 - 12:10pm If you don't tailgate on…

If you don't tailgate on Saturday, here's my usual plan:

Start on South U (maybe TDs or Charlies), walk through the diag to the MDen (maybe grab a drink at one of the bars close to there) and then head to Main St and grab a drink at Connors and then head to the game. You can also stop by Dominick's and walk through the B-School and Law Quad and skip MDen.

The bars certainly have people, but are usually not super crowded. It's a pretty good way to see the campus and get in a game, if you are short on time.

09/19/2018 - 10:27am This is the thing about Ohio…

This is the thing about Ohio. In football, the Browns and Bangles have been terrible for a long time and the only game in town is OSU. Almost everybody is an OSU fan in the state of Ohio and OSU is very good and wins championships, which fuels loyalty to the team (maybe/ maybe not for the actual school).

We could go into politics and sociology, but that's not the point of this blog, so...

09/18/2018 - 4:36pm Maybe the OP's contact was…

Maybe the OP's contact was referring to strength and domination vs. pure beefcake size and we are seeing the new S&C guy pay off?

09/18/2018 - 3:40pm We just need to trust…

We just need to trust Harbaugh. He can't bend the rules or bring in quick-fix JUCOs, so it will take time.

It's nice to see validation of his methods by "professionals"

Also, this likely explains why he's not putting the young guys out there just yet. He knows they need to gel and playing in cupcake blowouts is just part of that process

09/18/2018 - 2:10pm Great. Then we can get their…

Great. Then we can get their linemen!

09/18/2018 - 9:40am I was watching the OSU TCU…

I was watching the OSU TCU game on Saturday and a bunch of OSU players were also cramping.

Without stats showing that Michigan is cramping significantly more than other teams, my guess it's just because we all watch Michigan games so closely and notice it more.

Also, it's been super humid this season (I'm in the NE and it's been 80%+ every single day since Aug 1)

09/17/2018 - 7:57pm The real cash cow is the…

The real cash cow is the hospital visits. Michigan’s looking for those. Especially for the suckers with Insurance. 

09/17/2018 - 9:18am Lol. Refs are always right…

Lol. Refs are always right and even when they aren’t, the most that happens is a “statement” after the game.

Similar to dealing with police (not political), but if you don’t listen to them and you are 100% correct, it’s best for all if you cooperate and complain later. 

09/16/2018 - 9:41pm Do you know why it’s not SEC…

Do you know why it’s not SEC Black Saturday? Because they all play cupcake non conference games. 

Maryland should have played Towson and Rutgers Monmouth. 

09/16/2018 - 9:03pm This is every employees…

This is every employees dream. Stuck in a shitty company, but have enough cash squirrels away. Fuck it. 

09/16/2018 - 12:45pm Alternatively, could just be…

Alternatively, could just be because the WRs aren’t true freshmen and have some playing time under their belts. 

09/15/2018 - 10:59pm That’s wrong. They have the…

That’s wrong. They have the players to make their own luck. It’s why we never seem to win these types of games. Need players to show up. 

09/15/2018 - 10:58pm TCU Yackaty Sax ing this…

TCU Yackaty Sax ing this game away. 

09/15/2018 - 6:36pm Metellus has been great…

Metellus has been great today, though (the PIs have been BS and random all around). 

09/14/2018 - 2:08pm Thanks. I will (not so much…

Thanks. I will (not so much for the Michigan game, because I get FS1, but I want to cut cable if and only if I can reliably stream them). 

09/14/2018 - 12:06pm Depends on what their…

Depends on what their discretion is based on. If it's based on a protected class (age, race, sexual orientation, gender...) it's not exactly what they should be doing.

If it's based on football player status, well then I don't know.

09/14/2018 - 10:37am The reddit streams go in and…

The reddit streams go in and out and are tricky (since the sites are laced with spy/ malware). I tested the NFL Streams last night and it hasn't changed since last year. The NFL ones kept crashing or pausing too.

How are the Discord server streams?

09/13/2018 - 11:20am It's easy to ignore the…

It's easy to ignore the trolls, but what do you do with dumb ass posts like "Is DPJ good?" and "Should we run up the middle, or call all of our trick plays?"

They seem genuine, but are awful.

09/12/2018 - 9:37am Last year, I took my son…

Last year, I took my son around South U and then to Main St. we went to a couple of bars and got light food and drinks. 

I don’t think kids enjoy actual tailgating, unless there are a few kids their own age and they like playing the games. 

 

09/11/2018 - 11:18am Agree, the only downside is…

Agree, the only downside is that more injury potential for Shea, but once M is up 14 or 21, they need to treat the game like a practice.

09/11/2018 - 11:16am Forbes' website is a…

Forbes' website is a disaster to read, but how is the cash value for UCLA so much less than the "Annual value"? I mean they are a similar sized school to the rest, so I'm assuming it's not just in free jerseys and equipment.

Also, we should have hired Louisville's AD, because whomever it is/ was that negotiated the contract is a boss.

Teach Higdon Tru, teach brother...

09/10/2018 - 9:47pm I don't know what your views…

I don't know what your views are, but now more than ever, any political discussion among non horrible people is appreciated. About 50% of eligible voters don't vote so maybe sports blogs should talk about this. Also Kapernick. 

09/10/2018 - 9:44pm If defendants cannot cross…

If defendants cannot cross-examine their accuser the whole justice system is fucked. This is a basic right, especially if/when? the accuser is the government.

09/10/2018 - 8:20pm That's what I think. He'll…

That's what I think. He'll rest this week and play against us, but Gary and Winovich and Co will destroy him. If Frost weren't a dick, he'd rest Martinez against us.

09/10/2018 - 4:02pm I think that if Shea is hurt…

I think that if Shea is hurt, both QBs (Peters and DCaff) will play and that Harbaugh prefers DCaff, because he knows (or has the feeling) that Peters is transferring, because I don't think Shea leaves after this season.

09/10/2018 - 4:00pm Agree, Frost took a team…

Agree, Frost took a team that was hot garbage last year and turned them around quickly. Their QB is a true freshman as well.

09/10/2018 - 3:55pm I don't know exactly which…

I don't know exactly which group it is, but I have heard it referenced before and "applied" to a couple that denied (or ignored me).

09/10/2018 - 2:11pm Northeast >100 miles from…

Northeast >100 miles from the coast and south of the Buffalo snow belt is usually pretty unaffected by natural disasters.

09/08/2018 - 8:27pm My conspiracy theory is that…

My conspiracy theory is that Peters and DCaff are about equal, but Harbaugh knows/ thinks Peters will transfer at the end of the season and figures he’ll give DCaff more work. I think it may change if Shea gets hurt. 

09/07/2018 - 11:55am Maize and Blue, Dominick's,…

Maize and Blue, Dominick's, Rick's (if you aren't too old), Law Quad, B-School, South U, Main St. are what I generally do when back in AA.

09/07/2018 - 9:48am Sam is UM's PR.

Sam is UM's PR.

09/06/2018 - 1:11pm Michigan will put up a lot…

Michigan will put up a lot of points, but I think give up some big plays. If I'm an OC against Don Brown, the answer is to bomb it and pray it works out.

42-17

09/05/2018 - 1:57pm It's not entirely clear…

It's not entirely clear. Last year, Harbaugh called the play, but took suggestions from Pep and Drevno (and maybe others?), but from Internet rumor Harbaugh did actually make the decision.

If Harbaugh is making the decision this year, maybe he's not asking Pep or Warriner (McElwain has said he's not asked)? That's my guess based on rumor and what UMBig11 is saying.
