While I agree this would be a long term good thing for CFP...I don't want UM to be the sacrificial lamb to make it happen.

Therefore it's still a good thing. Because a 0 loss bama definitely would.
I'm flabbergasted by the number of people that are rooting for 0 loss teams to stay undefeated.
|11/16/2018 - 1:54pm||Okay lets break this down…||
Okay lets break this down...
"This could, of course, change, but currently, multiple sources expect Michigan to lose Patterson."
"This could, of course, change..." = We don't know for sure
"...but currently, multiple sources..." = but as of today there are some secret people I know but I'm not saying who
"...expect Michigan to lose Patterson..." = that are thinking privately that Michigan won't have Shea next year.
In other words, some randos not affiliated with Shea whatsoever are guessing he's not coming back.
Don't worry everyone. This could of course change, but I personally have multiple sources that expect Michigan to have Shea available next year.

USC has to be up there. UT (doesn't matter which one).

With the Nightman on the loose? No way. Can't even think about whoores in a time like this.
|11/13/2018 - 7:09pm||This is just wrong. You…||
This is just wrong. You think a 0 loss ND team with a head to head win over Michigan is better for Michigan's chances than a 1 loss ND team with a head to head win over Michigan? Assuming Bama wins:
If ND wins out, it's UM, OU competing for the #4 spot. 1 spot for 2 teams. 50%. Need to be best one of two.
If ND loses it's UM, ND, OU competing for #3 and #4 spots. 2 spots for 3 teams. 66%. Only need to not be last of three.
Give me the ND loss every time.
EDIT: I also want ND to lose because then they're only one loss away from eliminating themselves entirely. It's lunacy to think you don't want a 0-loss team ahead of a 12-1 conference champion (UM) to lose.
|11/13/2018 - 9:28am||Surprised no one has…||
Surprised no one has mentioned Minnesota yet. Not much of a rivalry, per se, and we don't exactly play them all the time...but at least that has history and trophy to it. Penn State is...ugh. I'd rather say we only have two rivals OSU/MSU than give Penn State the satisfaction of thinking they're one of them. They deserve the Illinois treatment.
|11/09/2018 - 9:28am||Yeahhhh. Don't think of it…||
Yeahhhh. Don't think of it as a Rutgers game. Think of it as a Michigan game in NJ. Over half of the stadium will be blue.
If Rutgers was playing Indiana I think it would be the ol' Brandon special. Two cokes and a ticket.
|11/08/2018 - 10:17am||Probably more ND football…||
Probably more ND football fans in NYC than Syracuse football fans in...existence.
|11/07/2018 - 6:49pm||I equate ND to be like the…||
I equate ND to be like the MSU team from a few years ago that got curb stomped by Alabama. Can't justify leaving them out, but today's version of Bama, Clemson, UM, UGA, and OU would all smoke ND.
|11/07/2018 - 2:57pm||Cool. It makes sense to me…||
Cool. It makes sense to me that they timed site changes for a bye week.
|11/06/2018 - 7:02pm||I think if Clemson loses a…||
I think if Clemson loses a close one to BC they drop below a 1-loss Michigan Georgia Bama and maybe OU. But would be above a 1-loss OSU.
I think in this scenario Bama ND and Georgia are in and UM is in with a conf. title but if OSU wins the big ten Clemson is in. OSU has an ugly, ugly loss.

|10/30/2018 - 8:07pm||Not sure why you're getting…||
Not sure why you're getting negged. I agree with this. There are a finite number of spots: 4. An undefeated ND team is guaranteed one of them. A 1-loss ND team is not. UM would win the Big Ten and win an extra game.
IMO there's no scenario in which an 11-1 ND team is ahead of a 12-1 Big Ten Champion UM team, even with the head to head. But, every scenario would have a 12-0 ND team ahead of a 12-1 UM team.
Root for ND to lose. And for those talking about "quality of loss" an 11-1 ND team is still a top-10 team.
Edit: Another way to think of this is would you rather be one of three one-loss teams vying for the final spot or one of four one-loss teams vying for two spots?
|10/30/2018 - 10:57am||I think we'll start at #6…||
I think we'll start at #6 because of the lack of quality wins compared to other one loss teams. But in the coming weeks we'll have great opportunity to easily climb above. If memory serves, the CFP rankings are fairly fluid on a week to week basis and teams aren't immune to dropping a spot even if they win that particular week.
|10/28/2018 - 12:15pm||To be fair, he asked for a…||
To be fair, he asked for a Michigan bar, not a sports bar. And I'd rather it be here with a comment + a quick reply and be done with it than another thread.
|10/27/2018 - 4:38pm||Personally I’d rather play …||
Personally I’d rather play (and beat) a highly ranked one-loss Iowa to get some extra credit for the CFP selection considering there may be other one-loss teams with viable resumes (e.g. OU). IF Michigan wins out, beating an unranked or lowly ranked NW for the second time won’t do much for the resume.

Two that were on the 2013 roster (Harrell and Dieng) and they combined for 18 points.

I had someone pour a whole coke on my head at the start of the game and the stadium usher shrugged and told me "welcome to east lansing. go green." girlfriend at the time laughed and said "go white".
granted, this was in 2007 so it's been a while. michigan won that game and my girlfriend was super salty so i figured it was as good of time as any to break up with her. I drove back to ann arbor and have never been back to east lansing since.

I think anyone that is saying Peters's game experience instills confidence didn't see the same games I did

No, not saying there's anything wrong with it. And not saying important details weren't excluded, either. t would be a totally unsurprising and accepted thing if it weren't for Tebow having a very well defined, Christian, wholesome, personal brand.
This article makes Tebow out to seem like he's taking an underage kid to a skimpy dressed bar and then when Meyer wanted to kick AH off the team, he acquiesced to Tebow's pleas. Made it seem like Tebow spoke out of both sides of his mouth, so to speak.
All I'm saying is this story paints Tebow in a more negative light than Meyer, which I think is true.
|10/14/2018 - 10:20pm||After reading that article,…||
After reading that article, Tebow seems to be painted in more of a negative light than Meyer.

I was at this game and the entire stadium saw the facemask and boo'd the refs incessantly. Only after it was put on the big screen and clear and blatant facemask (and the refs looked up and watched it) did they throw the flag.
I'm convinced that if the stadium screen operator hadn't put that on the video board, it wouldn't have been called. It truly felt like a "oh shit, well now we have to call it" scenario. Not an "ah we must've missed it" scenario.

Not all assholes have negative associations. Don't speak in generalizations.

So he warned at least one team not to draft Aaron and his friend Bill drafts him? Sounds like he's sandbagging Hernandez to other teams so he'd be available when it came time for the Pats to draft.
But maybe I'm just cynical.
But also, Urbz.

|09/11/2018 - 10:24am||When the DB is beaten that…||
When the DB is beaten that badly you don't throw to hit the WR in stride. There's too much risk of an overthrow. We saw so many overthrows on would-be touchdowns last year.
Shea threw the safe, correct, ball. Additionally, it's easier for the WR to turn around and catch the ball front-on with both hands up in front of his facemask than try to judge an over the shoulder catch at full speed.
|09/10/2018 - 5:09pm||Is it really all that bad to…||
Is it really all that bad to take an SEC Head Coach that won back to back SEC East titles (and worked for three years under Saban) and make them your WR coach?
Seems like a low opportunity cost steal to me.
|09/10/2018 - 11:26am||Yeah, I would take UM -32…||
Yeah, I would take UM -32. WMU is a much better team than SMU. My only concern with that line is how much of the game the 2nd and 3rd strings play and does that limit margin of victory at all.
|09/09/2018 - 9:57pm||Really? I don't think there…||
Really? I don't think there's anything illegal about it. Recruits that are best friends from the same high school openly say they're a package deal all the time. Michigan isn't doing anything illegal by saying "we will offer your brother if you come" either. It's well within Michigan's right to offer whomever they want.
Maybe I am jaded to the whole recruiting thing but I don't see anything technically wrong with Shea saying "I'll come to your school but only if you also offer my brother." The instances where the school finds jobs for family members is also legal but certainly more gray area, don't you think?
|09/09/2018 - 9:35pm||That's absolutely the way it…||
That's absolutely the way it works. It wouldn't be a new thing for Shea either. Ole Miss hired his brother, Sean, as Associate Director of Recruiting Operations.
|09/09/2018 - 9:10pm||No, probably not. But my…||
No, probably not. But my guess is this was part of the deal to get Shea in the first place.
