Good driver for a woman anyways. Heyoooo

10/02/2018 - 10:36pm Well, the post game win…

Well, the post game win percentage is based on the five factors:

If you win the explosiveness battle (using PPP), you win 86 percent of the time.

If you win the efficiency battle (using Success Rate), you win 83 percent of the time.

If you win the drive-finishing battle (using points per trip inside the 40), you win 75 percent of the time.

If you win the field position battle (using average starting field position), you win 72 percent of the time.

If you win the turnover battle (using turnover margin), you win 73 percent of the time.

Now from looking at the five factors box score, I don't see anything for explosiveness, but OSU had a higher success rate, won the drive finishing battle, and had better field position. Neither team turned the ball over. I don't agree at all that PSU dominated the game. They did blow a lead, but that game could have gone either way if they replayed it.

Actually, Bill posted an article a year or two ago. Teams projected to win 50-59% of the time won at a number in the 50s range (Don't remember exact numbers). Teams in the 60-69 range were the same, and so on. So everything you think is wrong.

He doesn't get any yards the OL doesn't create for him? Just a quick check of the stat profiles from Bill Connelly indicates that this is an idiotic comment. You made a bad post and you should feel bad

I've mentioned before that I coach at an in-state powerhouse. Our head coach thinks Bormet is going to make Michigan explode soon

Are they playing 2017 Michigan?

My assumption on your comment about Stanford and Miami having weak offenses is that you're being tricked by total yardage rankings. Stanford was 29th and Miami 36th in S&P+ offense rating. Not great by any means, but the total yardage being 79 and 60th can kind of be deceiving

I hate to break it to you, but we are going to see a lot of transfers under Harbaugh. If you want to see a program on a national title level, then it's simple. We are gonna have to bring in 25 guys a year and let some of them transfer out to make room for the next crop.

I actually just got married less than 2 months ago. We spent our honeymoon in Mackinaw City and St. Ignace. We took a cruise on the Ugly Anne boat tours that took us under the bridge. That was freaking amazing.

It COULD just be a bad day. But he also had an entire season of game action where he completed under half of his passes, so....

04/23/2018 - 12:28pm FanGraphs is projecting 68.7

FanGraphs is projecting 68.7 wins right now. It is what it is. They gave us a wonderful decade of fun and hurt themselves for now by being too all in. But I'm going to just enjoy watching the build back up. They still have a handful of fun prospects to get behind (Manning, Burrows, Perez, Faedo, Cameron, Rogers, Paredes), a few interesting young guys on the big club (Fulmer, Norris, Boyd, Jones, Candelerio, Jimenez) and the #1 pick in the draft. It'll be awhile before they're good again, but it could be fun to watch the build back up. 

04/08/2018 - 5:44pm Yet you opened up this

Yet you opened up this thread. So it appears that maybe you COULD still care a bit less

04/06/2018 - 10:42am If you wanna triple down, get

If you wanna triple down, get into wrestling. Michigan has 4 all-Americans back in a lineup that finished 4th in the NCAAs this year. 3 of those 4 have multiple years left. Michigan also has tons and tons of young blue chip talent coming up

04/04/2018 - 12:11pm Well he’s going to Michigan

Well he’s going to Michigan so...heel? But in our eyes he’s a face

03/28/2018 - 1:03pm Well he's pretty certain he's

Well he's pretty certain he's getting drafted anyways. He doesn't get past the 2nd round, and that's all there is in the NBA Draft

03/25/2018 - 6:37pm What an absolutely epic

What an absolutely epic weekend to be a Michigan fan. I'm so so happy. GO BLUE BABY!!!

03/23/2018 - 8:13am I thought I was done jumping

I thought I was done jumping around and going crazy after the first half. Then CJ Baird decided to hit a triple

CMU alum here for the posbang! Fire up chips!!!

03/18/2018 - 12:55am Micic had a great tournament.

Micic had a great tournament. He dominated everyone on his way to the final and scored 4 takedowns on Gross in the final. But you can't win when you get hit in a tilt. That's too big a score to overcome against a kid that good. He's certainly capable of winning a title though, and he has two more shots. Can't wait for next season already.

02/28/2018 - 6:47pm Just going off Kenpom,

Just going off Kenpom, Nebraska is indeed better than the SECs #8 team. But not better than the SEC #7

02/28/2018 - 6:38pm Besides Michigan (who

Besides Michigan (who Nebraska got at home when Michigan was on short rest), has Nebraska even beaten any other tourney teams? That's a major part of why their ratings aren't good. Their next best win is probably Penn State

02/28/2018 - 6:27pm The computers must have

The computers must have programed themselves to hate Nebraska 

02/28/2018 - 6:19pm Well, T-rank has them 47th

Well, T-rank has them 47th and BPI says 60th. So maybe it isn't Kenpom that's flawed. Maybe Nebraska just isn't as good as their record says it is. 

02/28/2018 - 6:15pm Well, I would have said he's

Well, I would have said he's done a really good job this year, but since they're so good according to him, I now think he's done a terrible job since they're on the bubble

02/27/2018 - 5:54pm I think Rashaad Penny is

I think Rashaad Penny is gonna be a beast. If you can move into the mid 1st or so, he could be a steal. He's currently valued at 1.09 in Feburary ADP over at

It's really a loaded RB class again. 

02/21/2018 - 9:25pm Lol, he's 14 years older and

Lol, he's 14 years older and grew up in PA. I've lived in Michigan my entire life, so it makes for a fun sibling rivarly. He really really hates Michigan. That long Lloyd Carr winning streak did it

02/21/2018 - 9:23pm Just barely, but they have a

Just barely, but they have a good shot to finish inside of it

Beazley actually beat that kid 7-6 in the blood rounds at NCAA's last year too

01/27/2018 - 8:57pm Do you coach youth wrestling?

Do you coach youth wrestling? I run 3 youth practices a week at Richmond. Where you coach at?

01/26/2018 - 8:21pm If it walks like a Spartan,

If it walks like a Spartan, talks like a Spartan, smells like a Spartan...Well, sir, it's probably a Spartan. 

01/26/2018 - 8:10pm You know, I thought MSU fans

You know, I thought MSU fans had pretty good reaction and response to the entire situation so far. But I was talking to my sister about it today, and I said that while I give them credit for reacting with outrage, it's pretty easy to throw fire at administration and non-revenue sports figures. It'll be interesting to see how they react when it's their heroes Dantonio and Izzo under fire. Suddenly, it's a witch hunt. Isn't that interesting how their moral outrage only extends to the point that it doesn't affect their football or basketball programs. 

01/26/2018 - 7:59pm You really think they're

You really think they're gonna let their former coach on the field after something like this? 

01/26/2018 - 12:25pm I think they should fire Izzo

I think they should fire Izzo and Dantonio. Ya know, just to be safe and stuff

01/15/2018 - 10:17pm It's almost like Michigan

It's almost like Michigan showed toughness to battle back off short rest after a big rivalry win. I don't know though. Is that tough? 

01/15/2018 - 10:18am If i knew for a fact that MSU

If i knew for a fact that MSU beating Purdue would result in Michigan winning the Big Ten, I would 100 percent root for MSU. So it does matter how it affects us

01/13/2018 - 4:55pm He's right. It is tough

He's right. It is tough losing to teams that aren't tough. Luckily we don't have that problem today though 

01/12/2018 - 11:07pm Nope, they wrestle at Cliff

Nope, they wrestle at Cliff Keen Arena. It's because they're facing Penn State

01/12/2018 - 10:38pm To be fair, PSU is a bad

To be fair, PSU is a bad matchup for everyone. Half their starting lineup is champs

01/12/2018 - 10:12pm Maybe you should hire a

Maybe you should hire a wrestler to shovel it for you. Wouldn't want you getting tuckered out lil guy

01/07/2018 - 6:47pm You can be as unimpressed as

You can be as unimpressed as you want, but OSU is clearly a solid team. So are we. 

01/07/2018 - 5:45pm MSU is #1 on Kenpom with a

MSU is #1 on Kenpom with a top 5 offense and defense. I think we only say nothing wows us about them because that's what we want to be true.

And OSU is only 5 spots behind us on Kenpom rating too. They're solid. I think we'll beat em when the game comes back to Crisler though. 

01/06/2018 - 10:09am On the most optimistic side,

On the most optimistic side, I think they could have 7 all-Americans and finish 3rd at NCAAs. Massa is probably the best chance to win an individual title. Coon might be the best wrestler on the team, but as others have mentioned, Ohio State has maybe the best wrestler alive on their team. Not many college teams have an Olympic champ on their active roster. It'll be a race between OSU and PSU for the title, but I won't be surprised if Michigan is 3rd.

Recruiting class does look amazing though. They have 3 of the top 12 recruits overall led by Joey Silva (#3 overall recruit)

Also, just to clarify my comment last night on wishing Skatzka had been the one win for Indiana: I coach wrestling. He was a 4x champ out of our program. I love Michigan, but the home town team comes first.
