|01/09/2018 - 12:06pm||I completley understand.||
I completley understand. Football is a horse of a different color with limited data. But that data is all we have. How else do we judge teams? We are trying to avoid the old "Eye Test".
If we say UCF is one of the best teams in the country and should have been in the playoffs with out using some sort of data to compare them to other teams then we should just go back to the coaches and AP poll deciding everything.
|01/09/2018 - 11:05am||I dont think any team that||
I dont think any team that plays the 56th ranked SOS should be considered as the best team in college football.
UCF getting in to the playoffs would strenghthen the case for Power 6 schools to schedule nothing but FCS teams in Non conference.
Mount Union went 15-0. Maybe they should be the best team in college football.
|01/07/2018 - 10:02am||Playoff are fine as is. Leave it alone||
Here is why 4 is best and shouldn't change.
1) To date, no undefeated power 5 team has missed the playoffs. That means that at the beginning of the season every power 5 team has a ticket to the playoffs. The second after they lose a game they leave thier fate to a room of men and women. Until then they control their own destiny. Wisconsin wins the BIG champ game, they are in. OSU wins both games they lost, they are in. That is why you cannot (should not) complain if your team doesnt get in. They had their chance and blew it. In the NCAA Tournament 72 teams make the tournament and people still complain when thier team doesnt make it. We complain about 12 seeds not getting in!
2) This is a playoff to determine the best team in college football, NOT A CHARITY. UCF has no legitimate gripe. Yes they went undefeated. Who cares? They played the 54th ranked schedule. The lowest playoff team played the 7th ranked. Even if you expand the playoffs to 16, the next lowest SOS is Washington at 26. Play the Power 5 teams week in and week out and if you survive the meat grinder then you have earned a spot. Beating Memphis twice doesnt cut it. Yes, Alabama played Mercer, but UCF played Austin Peay. Alabama played 4 ranked teams. UCF played the same ranked team twice.

I do actually. My point is this. This thread has been talking about players who never played for Michigan many of whom were big hype guys who never did much at the school they played for.
I think about players who left us for other schools after playing for us who did make a difference. Think about what would have happened if Mallett stayed. Maybe Manningham and Arrington stay. Those two and Matthews (they might have made their decisions first, a historian could correct me).
Maybe we dont go through the horror we had for 5 years.
My comment also points to the fact that Ryan Mallett actually committed to Michigan. Its not actually a commitment if you dont sign on the dotted line.
|01/16/2017 - 8:40am||You mean verbally committing.||
You mean verbally committing. Which really isnt a commitment at all.
I know the difference, thanks though.
Im making the point that most, if not all of the other guys mentioned never did anything anywhere else. Mallett did, and he left a void not filled for 2 years. So we really could have used his commitment.
|01/16/2017 - 7:32am||Ryan Mallett, He was||
Ryan Mallett, He was committed to Michigan then he decommitted and committed to Arkansas. We probably could have used him. No offense Sheriden and Threet. Literally NO Offense.

The athlete had a great experiance with the Athletic Director. I would say that his opinion is more valid then all the non athletes. He had a direct relationship with the AD. His Michigan experiance was more directly influanced by Brandon than any non athlete.

"Let's hope the new AD can move things forward in a way that doesn't perpetuate these divisions within the University."
I read this as " Lets hope they hire an AD that agrees with me and convices everyone else to do the same"

How exactly does Brandons
How exactly does Brandons "branding" effect the football team? Does Dave tell Brady what plays to run? What personell to put in the game? Who to recruit?
I was a Hoke fan but lets be real. He had no track record of success. He has had his most successful season at Michigan with players that played most of their career under Rich Rod.
I fail to see how this is Brandons fault other than the fact he hired Hoke. (Which if this is your basis for wanting him out I can understand that, not with his "meddling "branding" strategies"
Im not a student at Michigan and I know Brandon is the devil because he had the audacity to try to entices students to show up early and because he was dumb to try and bring Michigan up to speed with other schools who had passed us by 10 years ago, with "Uniformz" and Neutral site games.
Michigan stopped trying to be "Leaders" before Lloyd left. Michigan,and its fans, have been riding past success.The sense of entitlement by current Michigan fans/students is embarrassing.
I also love how we couldn’t get the coaches on the top of our list 4 years ago, but somehow we are going to pull either Harbaugh from successful NFL teams. We all need a reality check.

Why? It pisses them off to no end. Every time a Ohio fan tries to correct me I reply. What is the name of your football stadium? What does the band spell out before the game? You don't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan your from...? What do fans yell out at any given time? (o-h-i-o). So tell me again how I am wrong?
Its the same disregard that they show me when they say TSUN.

The man is in charge of a multi million dollar orgainizaiton. Pay him what hes worth. If he was the CEO of a steel plant he would be getting performance bonuses as well. If people he had never met did a great job that earned the company a lot of money he would get a bonus. Likewise if people who he never met did a horrible job, he would be held responsible for fixing the problem or he would be shown the door.

I dont remember the team or year, but during the last minute of a blowout our #2 qb threw a PA bomb for a TD. After the game the reporter asked him why they threw the ball that late in a blow out. His response with a confused look was," It was third down and long...wasnt it?"

I agree. I've always like Pat Fitzgerald, thought he was good for NW. But that reaction was absurd. Might have given his team the impression that the game was over.
|10/13/2012 - 7:27am||Ross Douglas||
I coached agianst him last night. We refused to kick off to him. So he had no returns. Ran the ball well. 198 yards mostly in the first half, one TD. Gave him a "Go Blue" as I walked through the handshake line.
