Your description is fair, but your question was when was the last time a backup wasn't terrifying.

 

10/15/2018 - 4:26pm I'm not actually very…

I'm not actually very frustrated with this, but the fact that Michigan fans CAN get as loud as anyone only makes it more frustrating that it doesn't happen every week.

10/15/2018 - 4:23pm I'm not sure I qualify as a …

I'm not sure I qualify as a "it's not loud enough" person, but what I want is this:

I want what we just had on Saturday. UM up by two scores, Wisconsin with a third and short, and it was LOUD. I want that. But I want that when we're tied or behind against any opponent for a noon game.

We don't get that.

It was okay when Denard was the backup to Forcier.

I am of the opinion that the Big House is usually quieter than it should be. However, I was at the game Saturday and it was indeed a great, excited atmosphere that was loud. Not UTL 1 loud, but very loud.

10/12/2018 - 2:24pm 31 - 27 UM.

Thing to make…

31 - 27 UM.

10/12/2018 - 10:16am But your numbers here are…

But your numbers here are completely arbitrary. It also doesn't take into account that maybe we are just really bad on the road whereas some teams might be relatively immune to others' home field advantages. You're introducing irrelevant variables by including road performance when evaluating home field advantage.

A more robust approach would be to look at opponent performance at the Big House vs. other stadiums of teams that are a similar quality to Michigan (especially on defense). Football performance has a high degree of variance, so a proper analysis would need a very large sample of games, likely spanning at least a couple decades.

10/12/2018 - 9:05am Your metric for deciding if…

Your metric for deciding if we have a strong home field advantage is flawed. If we have a bad home field advantage and every other team has a very strong one, your measuring stick would give the same result.

10/11/2018 - 1:58pm I think you're a little…

I think you're a little wrong here. The preface of the article states they are highlighting one OL player on each team in the PFF Top 25 (so not just 25 random observations). It isn't the rank of OLs, but rather the ranks of the entire teams, then talking about one OL player on each of those teams. I guess PBE is just listed for additional information.

Also <oembed> is good for embedding content straight into your post; it's a super useful tool that is underutilized by users here. Works for things like twitter, youtube, gfycat, etc. Not so much for articles.

There's a pretty comprehensive list of sites that support oembed requests at this LINK. Scroll down to section 7.1 for the list.

Mr. Pibb and red vines equals crazy delicious.

One right does not erase a wrong. You can appreciate when people do good things while still holding them accountable for mistakes/being assholes.

Ahh yes, integrity is indeed a useless thing.

10/03/2018 - 3:02pm I agree, people without a…

I agree, people without a filter don't do well here. They just get roasted by this crowd.

10/03/2018 - 2:49pm Then that's a case of a…

Then that's a case of a player getting horrible advice from their current program/counsel and that would be very unfortunate. Shouldn't be up to the player alone to discern the details of the rules, especially when the program leaders should be incentivized to explain to them the full cost of leaving their program.

10/03/2018 - 12:09pm This is only for non…

This is only for non-graduate transfers. That has always been the case for any mid-season transfer; this is not a new rule. The new rule just means that if they play in 4 or fewer games, that year won't count against their four years of eligibility.

10/03/2018 - 11:57am People hate it because most…

People hate it because most people don't use these stats to predict outcomes, they use it as a ranking system to brag about their team's performance this season.

Fighting handcuffed beats just laying down on the guillotine though.

Those would be some LONG games.

If it makes you feel better, we have Don Brown instead of a Big 12 "defense".

You did it right but you have to click the <> Source button to use <> tags.

You mean they "lost" to Purdue? Because they technically won that game.

Chase Winovich with 1.9 TFLs? Something's not right there.

Edit: Unless he has 7.5 TFLs and this is 1.9 per game?

Fortnite is a fantastically well-made game. Microtransactions are an irrelevant part of it. It's also a game centered on murdering everyone with guns and explosives, so depending on child's age, not super appropriate.

Why try to project game results before the game is played at all? If you wait until after the game is played to discuss it, you have much more data!

My kid is 2 years old and is obsessed with trains. He has seen something like maybe 3 or 4 episodes of Thomas. He now says "aren't you a cheeky one?" to his toy trains. Parents beware.

Menna's may be literal garbage, but it's pretty tasty at 2 AM. Caveat: have only been to Kalamazoo and Ann Arbor locations.

Stingy sting sting stingaroo exposed me as not-working at work with audible laughter. Once again Opponent Watch, you are dangerously superb.

Just randomly picked 4:11 to start watching the highlights and immediately shocked. WTF this guy is SO fast.

The question is will it be 7 ypc or 35 ypc?

He wants to pilot.

I'm starting to think maybe this guy is a troll, but this comment looks like he's trying to respond to other comments, not the OP as if he weren't.

Turnover chalice... what have you done, Miami?

Please don't let this meme infect mgoblog.

09/14/2018 - 11:29am I agree. I've been to…

I agree. I've been to parties in AA that have been issued noise violations and treatment was certainly not as strict as the policies outlined by OP. The only thing that moves the needle at all is if there was really a discrepancy between what's released from the PD about a MSU football player vs. anyone else. I'll save my moral outrage for actual atrocities committed at MSU, of which there are many.

6 months seems awfully harsh for legitimate new users though, right? Maybe a 5 post per day limit for young accounts or something to limit trolling but allow new users to converse?

09/13/2018 - 3:56pm No I'm not!

No I'm not!

Warning, do not go that instagram link if you're hungry. About to gnaw off my own arm.

You're not wrong.

I think there's a second reason. What does it tell your players if you put in the young guys before they've earned it on merit?

No, we'll have to wait for the UFR.

09/12/2018 - 2:17pm  Interesting stat here:

 Interesting stat here:

They rushed for 181 yards on 13 carries (13.9 avg) from the shotgun and 79 yards on 12 attempts (6.6 avg) from under center. The 6.6 yards per carry from under center is great, but you have to realize that 61 of those yards came on two carries, which means they averaged just 1.8 yards per carry on the other 10 attempts.

This is somehow the opposite yet exactly the same as an old man yelling to get off his lawn.

To be honest, I actually enjoyed Draftageddon.
