It'll be somewhere between those two

10/19/2018 - 3:42pm We are gonna win this thing…

We are gonna win this thing by at least three scores. 34-16 is the closest I can go (The least I see us scoring w/minimum one defensive/ST TD, and the most I can see them getting with a ton of 50-50 balls to Felton), but I'm thinking 48-7.

It's gonna rain in EL Saturday--just not from the clouds.

"Prepare for this to be the positive outlier for the season"

Uh... that's your BPONE talking. The improvement this year has been steady, and I expect that it continues.

News actually changes. I miss when he used to hand out updates for free here instead of for money there...

Why are people all of a sudden hating on him as if it was all made up?

I hope he does whatever is good for his long-term health.

Rain: little to none or maybe some, but meteorology is basically a crap shoot

Impact: negligible. We're better in all phases, and I don't think it really matters if we run for 400 and pass for 150 on them or pass for 300 and run for 300 on them, or whether they run 50 and pass 120 or run 120 and pass 50.

Post value: Saturday can't come quickly enough

10/17/2018 - 11:07pm I hope we have all kinds of…

I hope we have all kinds of news like this just kinda sorta leak out behind paywalls etc., this week...

 

...and have it all turn out to be disinformation a la OU fake script vs Texas in 1999

10/17/2018 - 6:05pm The holding in particular…

The holding in particular both infuriates me and frightens me. It won't be called. We know that. They know that. So they will be doing it. All game. WTF. I'm pissed already.

10/16/2018 - 10:40am I think we'd still get a …

I think we'd still get a "working through something" for the first one and a "slowly incorporating new things on the second."

That one on the second, because I think it was (a) primarily designed to tell msu/psu/osu "there's something tricky that might come out of this personnel/formation", and (b) secondarily designed to tell a couple dozen visiting prospects "you too could appear in a highlighted play, on primetime TV, in a huge game, as a true freshman."

Mission accomplished on both counts.

But I would never expect Coach to give up something significant in a presser. I was actually disappointed that he gave hints at a changed blocking scheme, suggested by Eubanks. If it's something that he's "not going to say more about," then why give the hint at all? I'm sure that, with that much info, another staff will have no problem identifying it.

We don't have a "right" to know this stuff. It's fun that they have these pressers. So, let's ask some fun questions--get him telling the kinds of stories that he does on his podcast. Human interest things, or what a neat family the McCaffrey family is, or something about Tru's development from walkon to now, etc. Things that he has a unique perspective on and build the charisma of our program.

10/15/2018 - 3:41pm Harbaugh definitely cares…

Harbaugh definitely cares about family considerations, hometown pride, etc.

He understands the place of sports in life and how those things interconnect.

For him, strengthening the young men in their relationships and their roots is part of the big picture of making them great student-athletes.

He's a throwback to another time, and I love that about him. 

10/15/2018 - 3:35pm He doesn't need the 3.6/g…

He doesn't need the 3.6/g for the Ray Guy award.

He was selected to the midseason watch list.

With stats so readily available, NCAA "qualifying" requirements are kind of irrelevant. Anyone can look up and see that he's killing it.

He's a field position wizard for us.

10/15/2018 - 12:39pm Or psu or nebraska. Not the…

Or psu or nebraska. Not the same rivalry status, but their respective coaches make my hate flow.

10/14/2018 - 11:47pm NW running the table would…

NW running the table would give us a top quality road WIN... much better than a "good loss." 

And it would strongly support the truth that we are a completely different team than opening night 

10/13/2018 - 11:26pm FWIW I kinda wish we would…

FWIW I kinda wish we would have waited until OSU mop up duty. You never know what could happen with injury, and we want to be able to play him in the B1G championship, as well as both CFP games without burning the redshirt.

10/13/2018 - 11:23pm I don't know... As loose as…

I don't know... As loose as they were tonight, Wisconsin got away with even more than the usual amount of holding...

10/13/2018 - 11:13pm No, he's not. Stop it.

No, he's not. Stop it.

10/13/2018 - 10:33pm so WHY did we burn a game…

so WHY did we burn a game toward Milton's 4 for that snap earlier? makes no sense!

Any idea why we haven't seen Ben Mason?

You don't have to imagine. I can send you links to game video from last year, if you'd like...

I might have taken 27-7... which, incidentally, would be the score if those missed FGs had been TDs...

Wow. ND looks bad.

No, he's not. Stop it.

10/12/2018 - 8:54pm LOL AAC commercials now…

LOL AAC commercials now claiming to be not just "as good as" Power 5 but "often better"

10/10/2018 - 6:44am Pure technical performance…

Pure technical performance is more helpful. It allows you to see just how much your qb is being affected by competition level. Why would you want artificially inflated numbers against better competition? Are any pro defender going to be weaker than even the best D they see now?

10/09/2018 - 11:03pm Just think what Warinner…

Just think what Warinner could have done with him.

10/09/2018 - 8:24pm Easy fix though. 

(1)…

Easy fix though. 

(1) Conduct internal investigation

(2) Determine that Streets is an utter fool

(3) Return any money he ever donated, and ban his AAU players from playing for Michigan

To be fair, jail is the primary place that they do schoolwork and Bible study.

10/09/2018 - 1:14pm TBH what do you want the guy…

TBH what do you want the guy to write about? Local kid was Jim Harbaugh's first "prized" recruit. And it's an honest take from their perspective.

In fact, if I were he, I'd still be trying to ride a little Zach Gentry news to a little New Mexico fame. Maybe an article moaning about how if it's Zach Gentry throwing that fake-reverse pass instead of Grant Perry, it's a touchdown 99/100 times.

10/08/2018 - 5:59pm This sign is barely average,…

This sign is barely average,

but it'll still win the B1G West Division

10/08/2018 - 11:31am As a father of 8, I endorse…

As a father of 8, I endorse almost exactly the opposite parenting strategies. The sooner you start kicking food across the floor to the toddlers, the faster and stronger you'll be building their immune systems. Drop a pacy for an infant? Just suck off any dirty bits and hand it back to them. Anyone over 3 ought to be outside playing and rubbing dirt into any and every wound.

Basically, everything you've heard mocked in a parenting stand-up routine is actually good for them.

10/08/2018 - 11:27am We may win by 48, but we…

We may win by 48, but we certainly shouldn't be favored by that many.

(Not /s ... Wiscy hasn't shown me anything this year and is banged up)

10/08/2018 - 11:25am Actually, we will probably…

Actually, we will probably end up going quietly. Once we are up four scores, I expect us to run a lot of clock...

10/08/2018 - 11:19am He's getting ready to write…

He's getting ready to write the a new "offensive line improvement has been impressive" every week for the next month...

10/07/2018 - 6:03pm Kids for sure. I hear goat…

Kids for sure. I hear goat sacrifice is the main event.

10/07/2018 - 12:54am I like us for top 10 already…

I like us for top 10 already. I think we OUGHT to be #7, but that's not going to happen...

I also think that Wisconsin is overrated, and we are going to kill them.

Same with MSU. But rivalry game? But anger. Lots of anger. Like... winning by five scores worth of anger.

10/07/2018 - 12:53am Stanford should have dropped…

Stanford should have dropped past us last week...

10/07/2018 - 12:46am Maybe spoke too soon. Go…

Maybe spoke too soon. Go Utah!

10/07/2018 - 12:32am Wimbush played the game of…

Wimbush played the game of his life against us. I think we beat ND if they play Book in that game.

10/07/2018 - 12:15am Stanford's getting some…

Stanford's getting some comeuppance for the voters propping them up over us in this past week's rankings. This is what it ought to look like after tonight. It won't look like this. Lots of teams that haven't shown anything against good competition will be much higher. But this is how I see it, as Utah continues to mash on Stanford.

1. Alabama

2. Clemson

3. Ohio State

4. Georgia

5. Notre Dame

6. Penn State

7. Michigan

8. West Virginia

9. UCF

10. LSU

11. Texas

12. Oklahoma

16. Auburn

17. Oregon

18. Miami

19. Colorado

20. NC State

21. Kentucky

22. Wisconsin

23. Texas Tech

24. Iowa

25. Washington State

Dropped: Stanford, Michigan State, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma State

And WTH with the medically ignorant broadcast crew talking achilles... 

10/06/2018 - 11:24pm Really, I think that even…

Really, I think that even playing how we did, we win that game 7 times out of 10. And that win would look great now. I don't mind scheduling big-time games. I like how the team has progressed, and the players and coaches both attribute part of that to playing a big-time game right off the bat. 

10/06/2018 - 11:22pm NE running up over 500 yards…

NE running up over 500 yards on Wiscy. NW beating @MSU... I have a fairly high degree of confidence that we'll be 7-1 when we host PSU, coming off a bye.

And, I like our chances in that game.

So... 10-1 going into THE game. 

Plus that ND loss, though sad and stupidly unnecessary, looks a little better every week...

This season is feeling pretty good...

10/06/2018 - 9:24pm I thought they did better…

I thought they did better than we've seen in a while. That hold on Tru was terrible, but I didn't find myself going in and out of apoplectic at the officials all game. Sad that that's the new standard this season.

How's that Kershaw crack lookin' now?
