So with a couple of tiny bumps and some recruiting luck, we could get:

- 3 of the top 10,

- 4 of the top 25,

- 6 of the top 100.

Wow. That's like Michigan-1998-class good. 

Hell, that's like Fab-Five good.

Protip:  Somewhere around the time your son reaches 15-16 years of age, you have to shift from intimidating him physically to intimidating him financially.

My 16 year old son can now kick my ass, but he knows he still needs money.

Was it the may God have mercy on our souls part?

11/13/2018 - 11:40am Because we are good.


Because we are good.

When we are good, he switches from snarky joke fest to actual coverage of what went on . . . because now it matters.

He doesn't find things so funny then and he loses his entertainment touch a little bit.

For what they pay in NW tuition, their tickets should be free.

Come to think, for what out of state students pay at Michigan, their tickets should be free too.

11/12/2018 - 2:48pm Me too.  The Egg Bowl is…

Me too.  The Egg Bowl is always great pure college football.  The record of the two team never matters.

11/12/2018 - 2:46pm It has the same feeling as…

It has the same feeling as 2003 did.  The better team is hungry and it's angry.

It's going to happen and its going to happen big.

ESPN will view it as their job to create controversy between teams 4,5,and 6. 

You can guarantee it, it won't matter who those teams are.

They are an entertainment channel, not a news channel.  They want to be entertaining, not accurate.  They would rather be completely wrong than boring.

If we are #4, they will pimp whoever is behind us, no matter who it is.  Count on it.


11/12/2018 - 12:13pm "Lifetime Achievement Award…

"Lifetime Achievement Award."  Seriously.

On paper they would not have a better resume.  But because they are Alabama, there will be calls for them to be in based solely on the past, irrespective of this season.

The committee is supposed to be above this kind of thinking, but it's not a certainty.


11/12/2018 - 12:11pm You had me at pound the snot…

You had me at pound the snot out of OSU.

11/12/2018 - 12:09pm Ignore 538 on this topic.

Ignore 538 on this topic.

11/12/2018 - 12:08pm The committee does not…

The committee does not instill me with confidence, but they are at least better than Joe Average fan. 

While Joe Average fan will go gaga over OU's offense and ignore everything else, the committee will recognize their pathetic defense and ding them for it.

Our only risk would be if OU makes a statement on offense and defense, and shuts out WVU like 50-0 while we struggle with NW.


11/12/2018 - 11:34am Hell, even if I'm a really…

Hell, even if I'm a really bad parent, I wouldn't want my kind wrapped up in whatever crap is going on in Columbus. 

That place is chaos.

There are too many other good options.


11/12/2018 - 11:13am BOOM.




11/12/2018 - 11:11am I'm still trying to wrap my…

I'm still trying to wrap my head around "Iowa State recruiting girl."

Gotta get him another one.  It will fix the "well covered" thing.


11/12/2018 - 10:35am Put 4 WR's out there, arm…

Put 4 WR's out there, arm punt it to whoever has single coverage, then wait for the PI call.

Oh, wait . . . that only works against us.


11/12/2018 - 10:31am Yeah, it's not like he's…

Yeah, it's not like he's going to sneak in and play QB.

Is he . . . . ?


11/12/2018 - 10:30am If we were able to beat Ohio…

If we were able to beat Ohio State 42-7 without Black, I'd bring him in so we can beat them 49-7.


11/12/2018 - 10:25am As long as Purdue is in the…

As long as Purdue is in the Big Ten West, it's a good job.

Indiana is jealous, they would have won that thing by now.

11/12/2018 - 10:21am We're blessed to be even…

We're blessed to be even having this conversation.

We still looked dominant through the air.

OSU's MVP of the game was the punter.  That's where they are right now, all those elite 4 and 5 star recruits be damned.

11/11/2018 - 4:28pm The media and average fans…

The media and average fans always overvalue offense and undervalue defense.  Always.

Some of the biggest "shocking upsets" over the years were not upsets at all, just a case of overvalued offense and undervalued defense.


11/11/2018 - 4:25pm True, but B1G CG winner >>…

True, but B1G CG winner >> SEC CG loser.

That's all we care about.


11/11/2018 - 4:22pm There is some truth to this…

There is some truth to this.  It still comes down to almost always just # of wins and losses.

11/11/2018 - 3:25pm Thanks.  It's better.  I…

Thanks.  It's better.  At least the AP is better, which is what I saw.  I didn't see the current Coaches poll.

I still think the Oklahoma at 6 is lazy.  They won a coin-flip game to an unranked team.

11/11/2018 - 3:17pm Defenseless OU at #6? 


Defense-less OU at #6? 

Two-loss LSU at #7?

Three-loss KY at #11??  That's criminal.

Were they even watching?



11/11/2018 - 3:12pm On paper, it's a no-brainer…

On paper, it's a no-brainer.  Alabama would not have a better resume.

If Alabama gets in it would be as some kind of "lifetime achievement award" for past successes, which the committee is not supposed to do.  They are supposed to pick based on this season's achievements.

If Alabama loses its CCG on a neutral field while having only one ranked win the entire season, that's not much of an achievement despite how good they looked getting to that point.


11/11/2018 - 2:59pm Loser of the SEC…

Loser of the SEC championship game will be out.  The committee will view it as a de-facto play-in game.

If you are the "Greatest CFB team of all time", then you would not lose your CCG on a neutral field.

Recall that when Alabama got in with a loss and no SEC championship, it was almost by default . . . it was over a two loss Ohio State who had a horrible loss at Iowa.  There was really nobody else to pick.

An Alabama that loses its CCG is not getting in over a Big Ten champion who's only loss was the 1st quarter of the first game of the year, on the road, at night, to an undefeated Notre Dame.

The committee wants to reward scheduling those kinds of games.  They will go out of their way not to penalize Michigan because of it if at all possible, otherwise nobody will ever do it again.

Michigan's message to the committee is this: 

"Look, we went out of our way to do exactly what you want us to do.  We scheduled a tough OOG, on the road, at night, the first game of the year while everybody else was scheduling creampuffs. 

We played the game extremely close and came up a little short.  We were perfect otherwise.

If you ever want anybody to ever do this again, you won't penalize us by leaving us out for another one-loss team that didn't step up."

Now he can go to the NFL in peace.

We're gonna beat Ohio State 42-7 too.

It didn't mean anything in particular to me, but the Cal - USC game is why I love college football.


11/11/2018 - 1:26am This is a great link.  He…

This is a great link.  He was a fantastic Michigan Man.


11/10/2018 - 6:39pm Took care of business.  Got…

Took care of business.  Got Shea some good passing reps.  Some nicks and dings on defense, hopefully nothing serious.

Time to go home.

When you have a really big lead . . .

The refs already hate Harbaugh.  He's not going to push it.  He's got Ohio State coming up.

Maybe he knew that's all he'd get.

11/10/2018 - 6:26pm Nobody else will take the…

Nobody else will take the job.  They even asked me and I said: "What, are you fucking crazy?"

We may burn his redshirt for that?

Well, that was Peter's drive.

Good job son.  

Now let's see what Milton can do.

8 today.

Probably not in blitz pickup or passes out of the backfield.

Somewhere on an Alabama blog:  If we were Michigan fans we would be freaking out that we suck and only gave 21 points and that Ohio State would own us

11/10/2018 - 6:03pm It's entering the 4th…

We're entering the 4th quarter and Shea has done stellar work. 

Nothing left to prove, get him out of there.

You could see that was going to be a fade before the play even started.
