11/08/2010 - 4:42pm This as our D's best performance to date

There were breakdowns..sure, but they actually tackled and had 3 and outs. 

11/08/2010 - 4:36pm I think injuries have held Denard back more than anything

Just imagine his numbers if he doesn't go out against BG, and plays out the full game against ILL, and that isn't even adjusting for the fact that at least a couple of his INT's are totally attributable to his bum shoulder.

11/08/2010 - 4:30pm The QB chucked the football at the last moment

I was pissed about losing the sack, delirious about the win and impressed with the Frosh's presence of mind all at the same time.

11/08/2010 - 4:29pm That tackle by Avery on 3rd down right at the

1st down marker was unreal. I literally haven't seen a Michigan defenseman make a "You ain't going no further son" tackle like that for a looong time. 

11/08/2010 - 4:24pm I am not so sure they let Stew go

He still does have a darn good winning percentage and is mathematically in the race for a Big East title. 

11/08/2010 - 4:20pm How would that be political?

Fox claims to be a "un-biased" source of news. 

They would just happen to really like Shirwell's "Family Values".

10/28/2010 - 2:07pm Then you clearly haven't read his

supposed conversation with Bill martin after the 2008 season. That was hilarious.

10/28/2010 - 1:39pm Technically Woolfolk would also be a

returning starter since he was one when he got injured. 

btw, Magnus, wanted your take on the Demens hype and the Woolfolk hype. 

10/28/2010 - 1:25pm What they fail to mention or understand is that

DC's will gladly have Denard launching air missiles all day than hav him galloping all over them. 

Until he has a B10 game where he burns the secondary to a crisp, this meme will not die. 

10/28/2010 - 1:00pm Suggestion for alternate model.

Take the number of yards predicted for the offense and use the yards/point of the defense and THEN predict the outcome of the game.

(Hope this is clear, I can clarify if you need). 

Defenses that create a lot of turnovers will be better modeled with this predictive scheme. This will also account for bend-but-dont-break defenses that give up lots of yards but not too many points.  NOTE: Jokes about our "bend-over" defense will not be appreciated.

Your prediction is actually (loosely put) using two  random variables without a joint probability term right now.

10/28/2010 - 12:56pm I am breaking out the ol Simmons

"I am afraid to say anything"


response here.

10/28/2010 - 11:46am If I were you, I would check if the offer is

still open. If he is a big fan he might have already lost it already with all the bad luck they have had.

10/28/2010 - 11:06am Completely legit on an official visit

Pearl hosted a barbecue party at his home for players not on an official (maybe even during a non-recruiting period, I am not sure). 

10/28/2010 - 11:04am Harbaugh knows very well what is

involved with an NFL HC job ( I've seen him on the Ravens sidelines a couple of times). I am not at all convinced he would give up the perks of a college job for the NFL. If anything, he will jump for a big payday in college FB (LSU maybe?) .

10/27/2010 - 2:50pm Wow, the TW reference really hit home.

Brian regularly makes fun of the blame ND  fans put on TW's recruiting but fails to realize he is doing exactly the same. 

10/27/2010 - 2:47pm To be fair they weren't "beasts" under RR

either. They were barely serviceable.

08/25/2010 - 10:56am Yeah, that was funny.

Also you can't hit stop on the timer as soon as you see the screen in Windows because it only *starts* all the startup applications then. It still needs to start connecting to Wifi and start the AV software at a minimum. 

11/16/2009 - 11:21am Why doesn't Tiger Woods

win every single tournament he plays in? That i one of the dumbest questions I have ever seen around here.

I know people get shocked when favorites lose but one play, that takes a special kind of crazy to ask why they couldn't guarantee that they would get it.

11/16/2009 - 11:18am One of the interceptions was clearly a miscommunication between

him and wayne (read based on safety blitz). I would hardly call that a "terrible" throw.

11/13/2009 - 3:53pm What's your point?

What's your point?

11/13/2009 - 2:50pm Not begrudging at all I think.

Just curiosity I guess. Simmons always keeps track of his "predictions" and mentions it at the end of his picks column...fwiw

11/10/2009 - 1:00pm GBMW consists of the same morons

that claimed Omameh was tearing things up and was a lock for All-American. Why the hell are you reading them?

10/29/2009 - 12:38pm Stating the obvious (this includes

paraphrasing what Brian has been saying forever) is not contributing.

Also, asking a question and answering it yourself == LAME.

10/29/2009 - 8:07am It is remarkable how you manage

to comment in every single one of the 1000 threads every day without ever contributing anything..not even by mistake.

10/27/2009 - 12:49pm I think RR is doing an okay job (B-)

but your statement is retarded. So if try my very best in an exam and still answer very little correctly I still deserve an A??

10/19/2009 - 1:06pm RR is very internet savvy

I bet his bulletin board just redirects to MgoBoard.

10/07/2009 - 4:58pm I doubt if visiting

Sparty fans will have the requisite points to actually neg anybody.

10/06/2009 - 5:02pm This is awkward but I also wanted to apologize

I've been reading this site for a few months now and just signed up for an account and got over-excited and posted a lot today. Apparently thats a no-no around here.

I have learned my lesson and I will keep quiet for the most part now.Sorry for the trouble (I got an email saying I was annoying too many people).

10/06/2009 - 4:34pm Sorry my bad

I misread that.

10/06/2009 - 4:33pm Can we

get Dantonio's take on this already?

10/06/2009 - 4:32pm I think this years game might have made it

into the list piggybacking on the RoboHenne-BE game.

10/06/2009 - 4:31pm That should seal the deal right there.

Can't let her get away.

10/06/2009 - 4:28pm Not a great idea to rely on

past streaks especially this year.

10/06/2009 - 4:27pm Can't generalize like that.

When we have Sparty to drag our (B10) class level down, any mention of class is throwing stones when in a glass house.

10/06/2009 - 4:25pm No way they come in to the

big house and beat us. This is the last year Sparty even gets within 2 TD's of us.

10/06/2009 - 4:24pm Agred on Boo freep link

I go to detnews for all my news now.

10/06/2009 - 4:22pm I bet that 4-6 number

is padded a little bit in an effort to try and catch somebody offguard

10/06/2009 - 4:21pm Did they ever try a hard count to try and draw them off?

Or would this be something you wouldnt burden a frosh QB with?

10/06/2009 - 4:17pm Wasn't there talk of a light issue for

3:30 starts. Granted that might have been for Nov games though.

10/06/2009 - 4:16pm AA in the fall is pretty

but I would go to Gainsville or LA if I was looking for a pleasure trip.

10/06/2009 - 4:15pm That would be ND's old tagline

The new one is :

All your Burgers and mayo are belong to us

10/06/2009 - 4:14pm Hard to understand how you are twisting Tom's comment

negatively here.

10/06/2009 - 4:12pm This info really helps. I am curious

What do you guys(IA fans) think of the coaching match-up? Looking through my M&B glasses I would call that in our favor...

10/06/2009 - 4:11pm If we get to PSU 7-1

and then get Molk back..lookout, new years day bowl here we come.

10/06/2009 - 4:09pm Stanzi is the kind of QB that we don't match up well with

Hopefully we can just outscore them.

10/06/2009 - 4:08pm Speaking of Mr.Sheppard

Last saturday was the first time I saw and I have to say, I would MUCH rather have Tate or Denard. I just don't get the hype for that guy.

10/06/2009 - 4:05pm As long as Brian doesnt go paysite on us

I don't see why one would ever pay anybody for this info.

10/06/2009 - 4:04pm Agreed

A healthy dose of Minor rage is what we really need (for the good of the O and the D).

10/06/2009 - 4:03pm Why is Tate wasting time with that loser

I think he conveyed what he wanted in the presser.

10/06/2009 - 4:01pm Pearlie and Dequinta

definitely fall in this category. Losing them really hurt us and we didnt know until the last week so I am not sure if there was a lot of time for us to play defense ( no pun intended) on that.
