Unfortunately, the early returns on Hawkins at Safety are not promising. 

  • Gave up the how-the-hell-did-he-not-intercept-that TD against ND.
  • Gave up the uncontested TD pass against SMU.
  • Gave up the 80 yard TD run against Rutgers.

 

It feels like most of the really bad TD's UM has allowed this year have involved Hawkins.

 

 

11/06/2018 - 7:45am I don't really want to get…

I don't really want to get into this cyber fight that seems to be evolving here, but OSU most definitely did NOT roll Minnesota nor did they roll Indiana.

Both of those games were in Columbus and OSU only had a 9pt lead over IU in the 4th quarter and a 6pt lead over Minnesota in the 4th quarter. 

MSU is a better team than either Minnesota and IU, the game is in East Lansing and Dantonio has had good success against OSU while at MSU. 

IF OSU wins this game, I would be VERY surprised if they win by more than 10. I would be more surprised if OSU won by 14+ than if MSU won straight up.

Well, if you check out 247 you'll see that Crystal Balls have been pouring in for Zach Harrison to UM recently. 

Giggity!

Has anyone ever seen Murder Wolf and Don Brown in the same room together?!?

11/05/2018 - 8:24am Truth.

Truth.

The other thing that concerns me is that if OSU gets to The Game with a chance to win the division, that they will get some "help" from the refs again ala 2016 and it would actually cost UM a chance at a long elusive Big Ten title (just like 2016).

11/05/2018 - 8:03am I respectfully disagree with…

I respectfully disagree with the notion that UGA over UM is "understandable." Georgia got pummeled by LSU who has two losses while UM lost by seven to an undefeated Notre Dame squad.

UM is better than UGA and deserves to be ranked ahead of them.

11/04/2018 - 10:43am I actually expect either…

I actually expect either Clemson or ND to lose a game in the regular season which would probably move UM to the #3 spot if UM wins out.

Clemson plays a night game at BC which will hopefully be nice and cold so I wouldn't be completely shocked to see BC pull off an upset. ND still has to play Syracuse at a neutral site (the Meadowlands, I think) and at USC. I would be sort of surprised if ND doesn't lose one of those games.

 

10/21/2018 - 8:23am If PSU hadn't gacked up that…

If PSU hadn't gacked up that 12 pt fourth quarter lead against OSU earlier this year, UM would just need to beat PSU in two weeks (then beat Rutgers and Indiana) to have the Big East locked up before the game.

Thanks, Franklin!

Remember when Michigan was heavily pursuing Sitkowski?

Yeesh!

10/05/2018 - 12:28pm Yes.

Next question?

Yes.

Next question?

09/20/2018 - 8:59am Personally, I am expecting…

Personally, I am expecting ND to weasel out of the return date. In another 4-5 years we'll schedule them again, and again, the game will be in South Bend.

09/16/2018 - 8:44am The most obvious lesson: don…

The most obvious lesson: don't have a -3 TO margin. OSU's defense scored 2 TD's. TCU would have probably won that game if the TO's had been even.

How the FUCK is this troll still posting under the same screen name? At the very least, ban this account so he has to come up with a new alias to troll with.

That's not going to be good for anybody.

Urban got away with it. Please go away.

Well, they probably figured Urban wouldn't be able to remember anyway, what with his meds and all.

08/23/2018 - 7:35am Ehh...but does OSU/Meyer…

Ehh...but does OSU/Meyer really get kids to the league or does OSU just get kids who are almost certainly going to end up in the league anyway because they are already really good at playing football?

UM has done a better job of getting 3* types into the league (especially on the defensive line) recently than OSU and the few elite players UM has gotten (Peppers, Gary) have had no trouble getting into the league, either.

08/23/2018 - 7:27am UM beat OSU in 2016. The…

UM beat OSU in 2016. The homer officials just didn't like that outcome and decided otherwise.

08/20/2018 - 11:27am One could make the case that…

One could make the case that Meyer shouldn't have any National titles at OSU.

The year they went on to win it all was the year that they were gifted the win at PSU: remember the interception that obviously wasn't an interception to everyone but the replay official deep in PSU territory that gave the Bucks an undeserved TD or the FG that wasn't snapped for nearly two full seconds after the playclock expired without the officials calling delay of game? That was ten points that OSU should not have had in regulation in a game that ended up being decided in OT. That loss would have given OSU two regular season losses and they would not have gone to the CFP that year.

That game reminds me a lot of the 2016 OSU-UM game. The officials decided the winner, not the players on the field.

Kinda like, oh say, Tressel and Meyer, right?

07/31/2018 - 7:33am Well, let me state it this…

Well, let me state it this way: I like his film more than I did Kareem Walker's or Derrick Green's. Not exactly a ringing endorsement given the way their careers with Michigan went but still.

07/30/2018 - 8:50pm His film appears to have…

His film appears to have been sped up but he still looks to have quick feet and above average speed. 

I wonder why he was so lightly recruited?

07/28/2018 - 7:56am If the officials hadn't…

If the officials hadn't royally screwed UM repeatedly in the the 2016 version of The Game, UM would have made the playoffs even with Speight at QB.

I consider it to be more of a universal axiom.

The TAMU @ Bama and Nebraska at Wisco lines look...interesting.

Both TAMU and Nebraska have new head coaches who have been pretty good at their previous stops; I'm surprised that their new teams are such huge dogs with this book. If I were still a betting man, I'd drop some money on those two games for the dogs.

Don't worry about UNC in the Sweet 16. I'm a Lipscomb alum and we'll take 'em down, no problem.

After all, if there is anything that Hollywood has taught me over the years it is that the plucky underdog always wins in the end in super dramatic fashion. Just to make sure that LU "shocks the world", I will be humming the theme song to "Hoosiers" during the entire game. That should pretty much seal the deal, right?

Since we are specifically talking about WTKA in this thread, I will ask what I have always wondered:

Are you "Don from Ann Arbor" who alwasy calls in to The MGoBlog Roundtable?

 

12/31/2017 - 5:13pm Agreed.
I think the 2018 team

Agreed.

I think the 2018 team will be better than this year's squad but the end results won't be much better. 8-4 or 9-3 looks like the most likely outcome against that schedule.

Just wait until <year +1>, though...
