Thanks for posting!  Good luck to Austin this year!

10/26/2012 - 11:33am Blocking Chart

Brian, have you considered adding the cumulative numbers for the year to the blocking chart, similar to what you do with the receptions chart?  I think it would be interesting to see how the UFR numbers for blocking compare to how each player has performed over the course of the year.

Very funny bit about THE_KNOWLEDGE already knew this was coming.  It will be entertaining to find out what THE_KNOWLEDGE's plan was to cope with the event, which THE_KNOWLEDGE clearly could foresee.

I thought I heard this was 1 of 5 regional covers.  Where does the 62 number come from?

08/15/2012 - 3:42pm Omameh

I hear that Omameh also gives a tremendous tour of Schembechler Hall!  Well played Heiko!

08/08/2012 - 1:36pm Dread

I don't recall ever hearing a player say they are dreading being a starter.  That seems odd.  I agree with most of posts here that there seems reason to be catiously optimistic about BWC this year, but isn't that quote a little disconcerting?

06/25/2012 - 10:06am New Hampshire

Without knowing anything about New Hampshire, I don't think there is a team out there that I would pick the Gophers to beat by 23 points.

04/25/2012 - 1:10pm College Stadiums

The University of Minnesota's stadium, for example (not that the Gophers will ever be in one of these games), does NOT have the required heating system that NFL stadiums such as Lambeau filed do which makes the field's surface playable in the winter.  When the Metrodome collapsed and the Vikings had to use U MN's stadium 2 December's ago, there were significant concerns about the frozen playing surface and player safety.  They did find a way to play the game, but at significant cost and according to some players (Chris Kluwe) at significant risk to the players. I am guessing this actually would be a significant concern at other Big 10 stadiums.

Was that their decision? “I think it’s their decision.”

I don't get it.

03/05/2012 - 10:55am re:

I think the OP acknowledges that, but he is saying if we're a 3, and Duke, MSU and OSU are all 2's, there's a 50/50 shot our sweet 16 matchup would be Duke because it wouldn't be a B1G team.

What does this mean for the future of Tacopants?

11/27/2011 - 10:03pm 0:00

There must not be a picture with the score and the clock showing zero, because one of the pictures from this link shows 3 seconds still on the clock and it has already changed to the 0 days since Michigan beat Ohio thing.  FAIL.

11/25/2011 - 2:03pm 24-12

LOVE the predicted score.  Beautiful.  #beatohio

11/23/2011 - 10:36pm +1

These are tremendous!  Can't wait for the rest.  #BeatOhio!

11/23/2011 - 10:20pm Hate

Mostly because they first hated me. 

Also because they lucked their way into the championship in '02 when they weren't even that good.

Finally, because they are dirty as sin and they just keep getting away with it.  Still.

10/19/2011 - 1:35pm Pants

Seriously, what happened to that dude's pants?  Anyone know what is going on in this photo?

10/18/2011 - 12:27pm FAIL

FAIL.  He was clearly not serious.

10/18/2011 - 12:26pm Great Point

Just a matter of time until it catches up with Dantonio too.

10/13/2011 - 2:01pm Disappointment

Read the title and thought this was going to have some kind of interesting point about humanity, and then it was just a generalization about OSU fans.  A very accurate, generalization, granted, but still...!

Doesn't playing on a bad defense usually make you seem worse than you are?  To me, if someone stood out on a bad defense they are probably very good, and someone would be more likely to seem better than they are playing in a really talented defense.  I'm talking about, in general, no opinion on the specific question about T-Wolf, because I don't really remember.

10/06/2011 - 11:13am Northwestern

Northwestern: 53 on offense, 85th on defense.  Obviously, this is mostly w/o Persa.  Still, seems like we should be able to handle this team. 

10/05/2011 - 11:52pm Rationality Junction

Love the concept and the the title.  Well done!  It does feel like we are at that juncture, with logic and passion telling us to go different directions.  Logic is coming around though too. 

10/04/2011 - 12:17am Agreed

Seems like this Buckeye should be commended for taking his head out of the sand, as opposed to my one buckeye friend on facebook, who posted:


Getting tired of the witch hunt aimed at OSU.

Which several people "liked" and to which another responded with "Amen." It is incomprehensible to me that anyone could continue to blame the media instead of blaming the chumbalones who continue to choose a few quick 'bucks' over their school and their teammates.

10/02/2011 - 12:36pm Looking Ahead

This is exactly what we should not be doing.  Beat the Wildcats!

10/02/2011 - 12:29pm Ohio

I wonder how they got their 1 vote?  Fickell?  I would be willing to bet yes.

10/01/2011 - 10:25am Michigan

38-10, Michigan

09/30/2011 - 2:47pm Score

39 seems like a tough number to get to.  5 TDs 2 safeties?  5 TDs a field goal and a 2PT conversion - why would we go for 2 though?  6 FGs and 3 TDs? Not this team.

09/28/2011 - 12:15pm Figured it out

Read it more closely and answered my own questions: the 10.3 is for our entire schedule, included games already played.  So, they gave us an expected win score of 3.6 for the first 4 games (10.3-6.7).  That seems too high actually given ND was a toss-up at best.  Not sure we would be ND more that half the time if we played 100 times. 

The good news is that this means they are actually predicting 10.7 wins for us at this point (4+6.7)!

09/28/2011 - 12:10pm Another interesting bit about that

FWIW looking at that expected win column, where it has us for 10.3, the only teams it has higher than that are Oklahoma, Boise, Wisco, and Stanford.  It is wins expected against your actual schedule, not a stat based on an average schedule, so thats why we can have the 6th highest expected win # but be ranked 10th.  I.E. even though it has LSU as the best team, their expected wins is only 9.6.    Something is off though because it also says it expects us to win 6.7 of our remaining games.  IIRC 4 plus 6.7 is 10.7.

09/28/2011 - 11:18am OHIO BOBCATS

And Ohio is ranked 30nd, ahead of the other Ohio at 32nd! 

I love this ranking and I hope it is very accurate.

09/28/2011 - 11:14am Interesting

Nebraska is at 54 in this ranking, wow! 

09/03/2011 - 1:16pm OSU kicking situation

Two chances at that filed goal due to an offsides penalty, and he missed both!  Nice to see...

09/03/2011 - 10:56am Game Day Crew Commercial

I just caught the end when Des had a Purse - what was that?

09/02/2011 - 9:05am This was fantastic

Thank you! 

08/25/2011 - 1:11pm Ignore

Sorry posted in the wrong thread

08/23/2011 - 1:26pm Thanks

Thank you Tom, and good luck.  We will miss you here.

08/18/2011 - 10:02am Agree

I was thinking the same thing - I bought a little too hard on all the predictions of future performance based on RR teams past performance to get too wrapped up in this kind of stuff this time around.  Still, its encouraging to see that Hoke's teams have exceeded some expectations. 

Great tag line too, by the way.  Apparently the magic happens just about everywhere for Mr. Omameh.

08/17/2011 - 9:15pm I did too - for the rest of you:

08/16/2011 - 9:17pm Bad Recruiter vs Cursed

Are those the only two options?  I'll take door #3.

08/12/2011 - 12:33pm OK Thanks

And this is funny because?  Again, sorry to be That Guy.
