I 100% disagree with the OPs take on this. A two-tier system is exactly what targeting needs and I have been hoping they would go to something like this for years. Instituting what is basically a yellow-card/red-card system would be great.

Season cant get here slow enough. 

01/07/2019 - 1:48pm Mattison is 69 (nice) right…

Mattison is 69 (nice) right now. His best years as a DC are well behind him. Traitor, yes, but from a football standpoint this is a pretty great trade if I'm being honest.

12/18/2018 - 12:03pm We don't have a top 5…

We don't have a top 5 coaching staff. Top 15 maybe top 10. 

12/08/2018 - 7:19pm People can neg this guy all…

People can neg this guy all they want, but he speaks the truth.

I was wondering where Maizen went. Guess he just got a new account. 

12/07/2018 - 1:02pm That Michigan team still won…

That Michigan team still won the Big Ten tournament, was 2 points from the Elite 8, and finished 4th on O to Kenpom. All Hail Beilein. 

12/07/2018 - 10:06am I have long thought this…

I have long thought this ends with a 20 team super conference that eventually splits into two 10 team divisions with one division being the original Big Ten thus putting us back at square one and having the cycle go on in perpetuity. 

12/06/2018 - 3:19pm Rookie mistake on your wife…

Rookie mistake on your wife's part. My brother (and parents for that matter) uses my Amazon account. But, for Christmas shopping he signs in as a guest so no one sees what he is buying.

12/06/2018 - 2:19pm No.

No.

12/05/2018 - 9:44am Not all my takes are bad!

Not all my takes are bad!

12/05/2018 - 9:08am He is producing 8-4 seasons…

He is producing 8-4 seasons at Iowa State, surely he could and would top that at UM. If Harbaugh disappeared tomorrow, Campbell would be my choice. 

12/04/2018 - 3:50pm I feel like 60 is the magic…

I feel like 60 is the magic number. If Michigan can get above that number Northwestern is in trouble because it is hard to envision them scoring anything higher than that. It feels like a Northwestern win is a 57-55 sludgefart type of a game. 

12/01/2018 - 8:37pm I agree on the zone point,…

I agree on the zone point, but the first 2 games are a lot of trial and error with lineups and such as well as first live game action so there is rust to work off. 

12/01/2018 - 8:13pm If you excise the first 2…

If you excise the first 2 games on Torvik they are 1st on D and 8th on O. Championship level. 

12/01/2018 - 11:26am As a Grad Student at Pitt I…

As a Grad Student at Pitt I'm strongly considering going to the Michigan-Pitt volleyball game. I can literally see from where I am studying now the arena they will play.

11/30/2018 - 9:30am Based on the evidence we…

Based on the evidence we have, I doubt the football team would be able to salvage a season in hypothetical postseason play. 

11/29/2018 - 12:25pm I'm hoping a wing like Nunez…

I'm hoping a wing like Nunez breaks thru. Brooks can be the backup PG, Livers/Davis the backup 4/5s, but we need someone to backup the wings. What happens if Matthews/Poole get injured or in foul trouble? 

11/29/2018 - 9:53am If it were in my powers I…

If it were in my powers I would make OSU bad at football. 

11/27/2018 - 3:44pm I dont have basketball BPONE…

I dont have basketball BPONE for 2 reasons. Each game is not as important as a football game and Beilein has washed away any reason for BPONE. 

11/27/2018 - 3:42pm Agree with this. The only…

Agree with this. The only exception I can think of is a three way tie where each team's only loss was to each other like the Big 12 in 2008. In my eyes we are not division champs. Ohio State is because they won. 

11/27/2018 - 10:21am Predictive models measure…

Predictive models measure quality of opponent. It is a better model to use when you have to put wins buckets (1-50, 51-100, etc) and if you have 2 teams that have similar resumes it is a better model to use to say which team is better. After all, aren't we looking for the 68 best teams? 

11/27/2018 - 7:47am Just use Kenpom or Torvik. 

Just use Kenpom or Torvik.

And yet it seemed Gil was out there most of the time. A baffling personnel decision. 

11/16/2018 - 2:02pm I agree with this take. I…

I agree with this take. I will obviously root for Syracuse but I think they will get handled. They have the largest discrepancy between their fancystats ranking and human poll ranking. The ACC outside of Clemson is fraudulent trash. ND rolls 34-17. 

11/16/2018 - 1:25pm Literally LOL'd at this. 

Literally LOL'd at this. 

  • Someone from two weeks in the future drops in and gives you subtle thumbs-up.

Link? Source? This aint Nam. There are rules here. 

11/16/2018 - 11:53am The last 2 close games were…

The last 2 close games were started by John O' Korn. He is not the starter tomorrow. We should be fine. 

11/16/2018 - 10:09am I was just gonna post that…

I was just gonna post that Bredeson should have a star. He consistently grades out well in the UFR and PFF and is the #3 G prospect to Kiper. 

11/16/2018 - 9:05am I for one think that Urban…

I for one think that Urban should definitely give a new LT his first start against Chase and Gary. 

11/16/2018 - 7:49am Lot of Buckeyes are using…

Lot of Buckeyes are using this tact. An OSU fan at my gym says we are going to kick their ass everytime I see him. 

11/14/2018 - 9:09pm I noticed that MSU is not on…

I noticed that MSU is not on the revenge tour. Surely a team with a HOF coach and 2 lottery picks could have won at least 1 matchup with us. 

 

EDIT: Damn double post

I noticed that MSU is not on the revenge tour. Surely a team with a HOF coach and 2 lottery could have won at least 1 matchup with us. 

11/14/2018 - 1:25pm Not when Rutgers goes 0-9…

Not when Rutgers goes 0-9. Then its just an extra conference win for whoever played them. 

11/14/2018 - 1:12pm It's typically called SoCon…

It's typically called SoCon Saturday since that the is FCS conference most of the cupcakes come from. 

11/14/2018 - 1:11pm To be fair our 9th…

To be fair our 9th conference game is Rutgers. Not exactly a juggernaut. 

11/13/2018 - 8:47am I think at most,…

I think at most, Northwestern will be able to fill a quarter of the stadium even with a 2 week head start. UM/OSU will still have a home game in the Big Ten Championship game. 

11/12/2018 - 10:59am Disagree. I think it would…

Disagree. I think it would play out pretty quickly. Neither Louisville or Purdue are going to be in conference championship games so their seasons end in 2 weeks. Brohm is plan A, B, and C for Louisville so they should reach out to him right off the bat which they can do because they already fired their coach.

11/11/2018 - 6:57pm I have seen two so far. One…

I have seen two so far. One had Michigan -3.5 and one had OSU -1. /shrug

11/11/2018 - 1:31pm Thank you. This is my…

Thank you. This is my thought too. Paye is the only one I am currently worried about. 

11/11/2018 - 12:46pm It was definitely inflated…

It was definitely inflated by playing MSU in adverse conditions. In addition to that MSU is not built to take advantage of OSUs deficiencies at LB. 

11/08/2018 - 4:25pm No its Rutger. 

No its Rutger. 

11/08/2018 - 10:13am Cyan Air. The story of the…

Cyan Air. The story of the Rutger passing offense starring Nic Cage coming to a theater near you. 

11/05/2018 - 2:14pm They wont score more. This…

They wont score more. This offense is 128th in S&P+. They can do anything competently. 126th in the run game and 130th in the pass game. To make matters worse their defense is 114th against the run. Michigan can go through the motions and win by more than 28. 

10/31/2018 - 2:38pm What these B1G East teams…

What these B1G East teams have done is way worse than paying players. Also, Stalin was just as bad as Hitler. He just won the war so he viewed more favorably by history. His purges killed 20-30 million of his own people. 

10/30/2018 - 12:21pm Someone save the link for…

Someone save the link for this so we can revisit it in 5 years when Franklin isn't the coach at PSU anymore and Harbaugh has a powerhouse. 

10/29/2018 - 9:17pm Definitely thread worthy. 

Definitely thread worthy. 

10/29/2018 - 2:59pm They had trouble moving the…

They had trouble moving the ball because Nate Stanley was terrible. He was one hopping or airmailing open receivers the entire game. As far as run D goes, PSU's run defense is 54th in S&P+, MSU is still at #2 for a comparison.  

10/29/2018 - 1:05pm I agree with the first part…

I agree with the first part of you point but sub out the Buckeye defense for Iowa's because he shredded Ohio State. Iowa and MSU bottled him up. Interested to see how they perform on road. All their difficult games have been at home. 

10/29/2018 - 12:52pm Breaking: Penn State fans…

Breaking: Penn State fans think Penn State will beat Michigan, more at 11.

Injury wise: he came back in and played the rest of the game. Also, Vegas didn’t hold the line until later in the week. He is fine. 

I don’t think they have a positional advantage anywhere except maybe their CBs against our WRs.
