You guys don't know what you're talking about.

Why do you guys think Boban is unplayable despite averaging 1.6 points per FG attempt? 

03/25/2018 - 2:15am .4x.4x.20-.30(whatever the

.4x.4x.20-.30(whatever the percentage on that Poole shot was)... that's still > 1%... 1 in 100 vs 1 in 10k, the situations aren't comparable. 

03/25/2018 - 12:47am It’s basically 0%... 11

It’s basically 0%... 11 second to go you’d need 2 missed FTs from a 90% FT shooter(1 %) + a super quick 3 pointer (30 % being generous), another foul with at least 1 missed ft or a turn over( 10 %ish) and a super quick 2 to tie or win (maybe 40% being ultra generous)

.01 * .3 * .1 * .4 = at most 1 in 10,000 to win or tie

Why are they fouling us? It's a 12 point game with a minute left.

Greetings from San Juan!

Red Cross just got here and their first move was kicking UPR students out of their dorms (which they had already paid for). Big surprise... *rolleyes* Many of these students live hours away and have lost everything back home.

meh, kinda cool that the last game of the series has Denard on the cover though.

simple solution is letting the players market themselves/sell their image/stop caring about how much they get paid for part-time jobs ect. No money would come from the university directly.

Where's the block button on this board?

There's obviously going to be some parallax, but using JT's hand for scale and distance I think a math person might be able to calculate approximately how far away from the line that ball was given the angle. 

I've read that first down is the middle of the line btw, not the edge of it.

I mean... this argument would hold more weight if it hadn't happened before. (see Kings vs Lakers western conference finals)

 

Refs don't even have to be aware of what's going on to have an effect. Just pick refs you know/suspect to have a bias in favor of teams you want to help/against teams you want to hurt. 

11/27/2016 - 6:15am if you start at the 25 the 15

if you start at the 25 the 15 yard line is the line to make, bringing out the chains would be less precise than using the line that's already on the field. 

11/27/2016 - 6:08am This conference is set up to

This conference is set up to have Ohio State win the whole thing as often as possible, going as far down as the officiating. 

Yesterday's game reminds me of the 2014 OSU vs Penn State game. That game ended in a 2OT victory for OSU too and featured inexplicably horrible calls going the way of OSU. Penn State complained and it was so bad even the head ref had a press conference but ultimately nothing happened and the officiating is as bad now as it was then.

As I've said before I'm done with college football until either the refereeing improves substantially or we leave the B1G(which, I'm not delusional, there's not even a .00000000001% chance of that).

11/26/2016 - 4:37pm I'm 100% done with college

I'm 100% done with college football until either B10 refs improve substantially or we leave the B10.

These refs missed a lot.

Many of you are complaining about the defense but look at the replays specially at the line of scrimmage. MSU could've stayed in the game even vs Bama with these refs. What's up with B1G refs this season? They cost Wisconsin their game vs OSU and could've easily cost us this game.

They just don't call the obvious holds. We should get jerseys that rip easily to shame them into calling it.

10/29/2016 - 4:05pm MSU OL was holding every

MSU OL was holding every single play. Any team can beat any team in the B1G. Blind refs are the great equalizer.

10/23/2016 - 6:37pm For the decade I think

For the decade I think Michigan, Miami and Tennessee lead the "doing less with more" ranking, Georgia would be high up there too though.

10/23/2016 - 9:46am If I were a wisky fan I'd

If I were a wisky fan I'd also say my team should've won that game. OSU got away with holding virtually every single play on offense and they got called for it maybe once. That's one of my biggest fears playing OSU, it's tough to beat them at the line if the refs aren't calling the obvious holds.

What did you study? I have a BS from LSA and the majority of my classes were not graded on a curve... actually, only a small handful were and I'm 100% sure you can get a BA from LSA  without taking a single one of them. 

10/03/2016 - 12:30am The easiest classes at

The easiest classes at Michigan are no harder than the easiest classes at OSU and Bama. Let's just be honest, if Mario Manningham managed to stay elegible during his time at Michigan pretty much anyone can stay elegible. Our standards are no different from those schools, we're not Northwestern. 

10/01/2016 - 8:27pm I wonder if some Bama fans

I wonder if some Bama fans thought the same thing when they lost 9-6 vs LSU in 2011.

Looks like the insufferable section of the Michigan fanbase is out in full force again.

Going by the data, people in Ohio seem to die less often than people in Michigan per mile driven, but they're both above average states. OP was complaining about Washington(Seattle area) and those drivers also seem to be better than Michigan's at not getting killed.

The worst drivers in America seem to live in Montana while the best seem to live in Wyoming. Minnesota and Massachusetts drivers also seem to be pretty good.

06/30/2016 - 4:50pm You are correct, most zika

You are correct, most zika infections are asymptomatic. Symptoms, when present, are several pegs below Chikungunya, dengue, yellow fever, and west nile virus.

This virus should only be a cause for concern for pregnant women and their partners, couples planning to have children within the next 15 months, and couples who aren't planning to have children but are having unprotected sex w/o any form of consistent birth control.

05/17/2016 - 4:54pm Nah, his height isn't really

Nah, his height isn't really due to hormonal "imbalances". Kid's family is just insanely tall, his dad and uncle are super tall too. Reminds me of the Plumlee family.

You can't quantify an alumnus' ties to the school in athletics fandom years because the two experiences are just not fungible. Arguing your bonds to the UNIVERSITY are stronger than the bonds of someone who actually attended the school is bordering on the insane. Perhaps to the athletic department, but certainly not to the University as a whole.

I'm approaching 30 and 6am is super early for me... Don't think that's ever going to change.

01/21/2016 - 12:14am All the facts will NEVER be

All the facts will NEVER be in and this is not the standard we have used to criticize other schools. 

Jeez... Michigan fandom turns some of you into flaming hypocrites.

01/20/2016 - 11:57pm This, exactly this.

This, exactly this.

01/20/2016 - 11:41pm You can't... most people know

You can't... most people know this, but they're just slow playing it and hoping some miracle happens between now and signing day that makes the impending oversigning excusable. Brian and most of the fan base will just shrug and say "playing time transfers" as if that's not exactly the same thing Alabama does(and what this fanbase criticized Alabama for doing every single year.) 

It wouldn't bug me as much as it does if these people would just admit that the faux outrage in the past didn't really have anything to do with the kids and everything to do with Michigan not doing it too. Kinda like what Brian asks SEC and ACC fans to do regarding satellite camps. 

01/20/2016 - 11:35pm slow approach and learn some

slow approach and learn some facts = let's not talk about it and hopefully it'll blow over

01/20/2016 - 11:25pm "and not hold onto guys that

"and not hold onto guys that they don't think will perform (e.g., Derrick Green)"

 

Speak for yourself, if Derrick Green wanted to stay I would absolutely want the coaching staff to hold on to him. A promise is a promise and if my alma mater promised a kid 4 years of education, I want them to keep it. 

01/20/2016 - 4:50pm The risk should all fall on

The risk should all fall on the schools because the potential damage from a decommit isn't in the same ballpark as the damage from a yanked scholarship late in the process.

You know what else Ole Miss has in spades? KKK members.

01/15/2016 - 3:01pm Have Indiana and Alabama

Have Indiana and Alabama players come out saying they're being forced to transfer?

How are those transfers any different?
