I agree with you despite all the negs, Tru is a far better option than Evans for the #2 RB.

Tru should be 2nd on the depth chart. Evans has extremely poor YAC.

We'll beat Wisconsin because it's at home. If it was away, I'd probably have us losing.

But we will win that game, and be undefeated at home for the year.

09/05/2018 - 7:47am Hear me out, this might…

Hear me out, this might sound crazy but - a hurry up offense in the red zone. The last two years we've seen Michigan flounder in the red zone. I'm leaning towards it being due to the fact we're a bit too predictable when the field is compressed. A hurry up offense in the red zone would -

1) Skew timing of routes / snaps towards our advantage

2) Offset the timing of blitzes / disrupt the preparation of the defense

I've switched over to Maize n Brew mostly. I'm kind of getting tired of the bullshit on this site.

They'll pass along any price increase to the consumer. They always do.

08/26/2018 - 5:48pm None of the players you…

None of the players you cited have put up numbers that are all that impressive. Neither were Tarik's but he passed a few names on your list to become what would have been a starting spot in our game at ND.The onus is on Shea to get the ball to them this year, and the line to have a decent pass pro.

08/26/2018 - 5:34pm Good Lord I hope I'm wrong,…

Good Lord I hope I'm wrong, but I feel the people up-voting and discounting Tarik's injury are in for a somewhat rude awakening.

We could easily lose the ND game because we have no passing threat, they shut down Shea's ability to run because we have no passing threat, and our defense is on the field the entire game.

It would be great if we could see a passing game that was in the upper half of FBS statistics. We didn't have it for the 2nd half of 2016, all of 2017.

You think ND doesn't know that we can only throw to our TE's?

Your #1-3 choices are correct, but I would switch the #1 and #2 though.

08/26/2018 - 3:16pm He was WR1 on the depth…

He was WR1 on the depth chart - obviously a guy who was such a small contributor being a starter shows the lack of talent we have at WR or the fact that he was that much better than everyone else. You can choose which of these two facts you want to believe, but the reality is the same - we lost our starting WR for most of the season.

People on this board are insanely dense, I have no idea why you are getting down voted.

Remember Drake Harris? 5 Star WR with constant hamstring issues? Never really played more than a few downs at Michigan? Is it that unreasonble to suggest that Tarik's outcome holds a similar fate? Hell no.

Please cite some data where we had a player twice injured, nearly a full season injury in both instances, and was a solid contributor after he came back. I'll wait.

I could easily see Tarik being out costing us a game or two - this entire offense has to prove it can move the ball in the air before I believe it. If you were a defensive coordinator game planning for Michigan, why the hell wouldn't you stack the box with 11 guys at least 10 yards from the line of scrimmage, until proven otherwise?

We haven't had a solid passing offense since the 2nd half of 2015 season / first half of the 2016 season. This is reality, and anyone who doesn't acknowledge this is deceiving themselves.

I want this team to succeed, but holy crap people - at least reconcile what you want to happen vs. reality.

I agree that we need a big body receiver. Enough of the 5'11/6'0 tweeners, get a 6'2 guy who can move and catch. In a country of 340 million people and a University with the resources we have, we've got to be able to get someone out there - right?

08/25/2018 - 9:19pm WHAT THE FUCK.

WHAT THE FUCK.

08/25/2018 - 9:19pm Agreed. The people that are…

Agreed. The people that are trying to hand wave this off are crazy. This is a terrible development. I think it's reasonable to remove a game from the 'W' column predictions for this.

We desperately need a passing game, and this guy was going to be a key piece of the 2018 campaign. This is huge loss.

08/17/2018 - 9:22am RAIDZ2 is a pain is more or…

RAIDZ2 is a pain is more or less impossible to expand, when that time comes. Based on the striping/parity of the file system, you can't swap a drive out and expand the pool.

I very much recommend a RAID1 ZFS configuration. It's mirrored drives of the same capacity. 2TB drives are reasonably cheap these days. 4TB is obviously better. I have a thing for capacity in the power of 2.

With a ZFS box, you want a computer case that has 1) at least four 3.5 drive bays 2) preferable six or eight drive 3.5 bays. I ended up buying a Lenovo TS440 on sale years ago and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made; it's a workhorse. It has six SATA ports - I have a cheap SSD for the server OS, and four SATA ports with 4TB drives.

I also have 2x2TB drives in drive bays 5 and 6. I found out you can flash the firmware of a specific LSI raid card which will disable the RAID on the card itself (you don't need RAID on the hardware level, because ZFS is doing it for you) and it will pass the disks to the operating system as if they were connected via SATA - https://www.ebay.com/itm/LSI-SAS-9211-8i-8-port-6Gb-s-PCI-E-Internal-HBA-Both-Brackets-IT-MODE/152937435505?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

Anyways, let me know if anyone else has questions - I could talk about this all day. It took me two or years to finally do a build and pull the trigger after doing all this research, but I'm glad I waited and did Ubuntu + ZFS on Linux (ZoL).

08/16/2018 - 3:15pm Ha! I'm surprised you're…

Ha! I'm surprised you're asking this on MGoBoard but you've found the right guy to help you. I was very close to doing a FreeNAS build and then I thought - "wait, why don't I use Ubuntu  + ZFS on Linux?", which is very well supported (tons of questions on stack overflow) and is Linux based (again, better supported than FreeBSD). So that's what I did - I installed Ubuntu 18.04 on a Lenovo TS440 server and have six out of eight drive bays full.

Why Toyota makes so much more money than the Big 3 - https://dailykanban.com/2015/03/toyotas-tnga-tps-2-0/

FCA/GM have higher EBITDA margins than Ford though, they tend to make more profit per vehicle.

Not a single automaker has made money on electric or autonomous vehicles thus far. Marchionne's 'wait and see' approach was the right one.

And when time does come to invest in those technologies, the industry commoditizes innovation very quickly - you can pick up self drive integration from Delphi/Continental/etc.

Congrats, Ford stock is the same price today as it was in 1989. Even with the dividend, it's massively underperformed the S&P500 during the same 30 year period.

With inflation, it's even worse.
