Beilein interviewed for the Piston's job and didn't end up wanting it. It may be he's exploring the idea, it may be he wants to get paid more to stay...

Similar story... My friend that went through the fire academy had a teacher that worked for Detroit FD. They would get reports of fires on the 5th floor, show up, obviously no fire but legally they have to check, smell an obvious aroma of gasoline on the 3rd floor as they're going up, and when they got to the top people lit the fire underneath them and they had to repel down. People are fucked up...

The next recession is going to hit Detroit hard... When money gets tight, the nightlife in Detroit is going to plummet, and the housing market will go with it.

Detroit still has the same infrastructural problem, no reasonable/easy public transportation to/from the city to the suburbs. Needed the Qline to go all the way to Royal Oak, and need something similar that goes up Gratiot (to St Clair Shores), Grand River (to Novi), and Michigan Ave (to Canton or even Ypsi).

But according to the previous post, Harbaugh is going to the Packers, and since Meyer isn't retiring until after the Rose Bowl, technically we don't know this yet...

I don't see much effect on this year's class. Not many kids are going to decommit from a B10 champ going to the Rose Bowl... But I see a lot of variation based on what happens next year.

If Ryan Day leads them to the CFP, their recruiting probably stays at the level it is or even increases because now OSU is seen as having an elite YOUNG coach that could be there for the next 20 years.

If Day goes 8-4 next year, the whole appearance of OSU changes to recruits. It won't be seen as a one-year slip-up, but as a decline due to Urban leaving.

Anything but an OC/DC at CMU probably isn't a good move financially or career wise for him. If he does get offered that, he should definitely take it, and it would show how much people within the program really respect what he's done.

The narrative will then be that it was because "he was on his way out and lost focus". Just like they were setting it up to be because of his health this year...

11/29/2018 - 11:07am I was specifically…

I was specifically commenting on being blown out by OSU shouldn't change his mind since Tennessee has been blown out much more often by much worse teams...

Also, being on a top 10 team that has yet to make it into the playoff is better than being on a team that dreams of being ranked in the top 25 in a couple years.

11/29/2018 - 10:32am Yeah, why go to a top 10…

Yeah, why go to a top 10 Michigan team when you could go to a 5-7 Tennessee team that just got blown out by Vanderbilt last weekend? And got blown out by WVU. And Alabama. And Florida. And Georgia. And Missouri.

Assuming favorites win this weekend, Michigan will have taken away two CFP appearances from OSU, that they were cheering against Michigan when they happened.

1) Fumbled snap on the punt, if it doesn't happen, they go over MSU in 2015.

2) Michigan vs. ND. If Michigan wins that game, ND is probably #7 behind us at #6 right now, and OSU would control their own destiny assuming Alabama wins.

At this point I see him as being the same as Lee Corso... They are both too old that they can barely put together a coherent sentence, but people still enjoy them for the association with the past.

I can't find the link/post anymore, but I followed the instructions someone posted a month of so after the new site came out on how to essentially make your own MGoBlog App. I don't get many invasive ads through that...

11/27/2018 - 10:15am Yeah, the most you can get…

Yeah, the most you can get the CFP predictor up to is 1%. Along with a ton of other unlikely things, I think OSU would have to lose, and have Haskins have a season ending injury and look like a completely different team without him.

11/24/2018 - 11:05am Oh is that today?

Oh is that today?

11/21/2018 - 12:45pm Why is the QB edge to OSU?…

Why is the QB edge to OSU? Patterson has a better QBR this year and is a better runner. Unless you are chalking that up to the OL advantage (this feels weird to type).

Also Coaching I would put in favor of UM. Meyer has never done anything that has impressed me strategically. Harbaugh has with his game plan last year, and even in 2016 when Speight couldn't throw more than 20 yards. Meyer is aggressive going for it on 4th down, but in the past with their OL and Barrett there is no way they were being stopped on 4th and 1 or 2...

11/20/2018 - 3:46pm Idk about that now. They…

Idk about that now. They brought him out last week and it led to a penalty... If I'm OSU, I would rather had Haskins that can fall forward a yard or to than Martell who is getting zero YAC...

11/20/2018 - 10:25am As long as they don't get…

As long as they don't get Morehead to come back, I would still be happy with Frames leaving. It would cause some chaos with their recruiting class this year. Also, with McSorely leaving this year, they are going to regress no matter what. If that can be associated with a new coach instead of being inevitable due to graduation, it could set them back a few years.

11/20/2018 - 10:22am Agreed. The offense if…

Agreed. The offense if definitely setup in a way to pick-on defensive tendencies or counter things we've shown earlier in the game (see Scissors on front page). Plus, like announcers love to say 20 times a game, they "give body blows that wears down the defense".

11/20/2018 - 10:04am Don Brown effect. He makes…

Don Brown effect. He makes adjustments for the defense better than any coach I've ever seen.

I really want Harbaugh to give him a 1st half timeout he can use whenever he wants. I would love if he could call a timeout and make quick adjustments on the first scripted OSU drive rather than wait until they've potentially already scored...

11/20/2018 - 9:25am I actually thought this was…

I actually thought this was pretty clever by the reporter...

Given that that was a big part of the conversation in the offseason, is there maybe more significant pressure going into this game than past Ohio State games you’ve coached in?

 

“I always look at pressure as life-giving to energy.”

 

Is there more life giving energy going on?

 

“Yeah, sure. Fired up about it. Can’t wait to watch our guys compete.”

I believe it.

As soon as odds were put out there and you could win a decent amount of money on betting that Urban Meyer would be the HC of OSU next year, they knew something...

If you bet $100 that Harbaugh would be our HC next year, you probably win $1

From my memory, it did seem like we went more to the left side on short yardage plays this past week which could be bad for two reasons. It's a tendency that OSU could pick up on and it's a sign that there is a drop off without JBB.

We use running as the core of our offense. OSU hasn't been able to run the ball all year. Our QB is the more mobile one for the first time in forever. We want rain...

There might be more sources, but if not this is really bad reporting IMO.

This article references the article about Haskins going pro, where he offhandedly mentions Shea going pro. In that article he doesn’t say that’s based on any recent rumors/info, just that he is expected to. Like everyone thought all season until a couple weeks ago when insiders started hearing differently.

idk if he’ll go or not, but he probably should. He has the top QBR of any qb eligible for the draft.

Since rankings don't really matter until the final week... I would love to see the committee send a message and rank Alabama #2 after this week, and then move them back in front of Clemson after they beat Auburn. Send a message that scheduling stupid games at this point in the season could hurt your ranking.

You should not be allowed a 5th year if you haven’t gotten a degree already... Most players now finish is 3 years because they take classes year round.

11/05/2018 - 3:02pm If we're expecting him to…

If we're expecting him to act like a pure pass-pro tackle, it's probably not going to go well. But he made a good choice to hold on Black's TD... The DE would've gotten an easy sack otherwise and we would've lost 6 yards.

1st and 20 > 2nd and 16

Herbstreit is usually one of the best announcers, but he really struggled this game.. He didn't know the rule about being where you start the slide (and if I know it yelling on the couch, he should know it). He also said a block in the back was a bad call on a PSU punt return. It was a bad call, because it should've been targeting...

11/05/2018 - 1:40pm Can and being likely to are…

Can and being likely to are completely different. I think OSU is a really bad matchup for MSU. MSU stops the run, not the pass. OSU this year tries to throw the ball 100 times a game and not run. Unless they get to Haskins a bunch, I don't see this game being close.

FPI gives them a 40% shot, which seems way too high to me.

11/05/2018 - 1:21pm I thought of a hypothetical…

I thought of a hypothetical this weekend, this seems like a good place to discuss....

If you could give MSU any number of points to start out with against OSU, but Rutgers would also get that many against us... How many points would you risk?

I think I'd go 24. Still a safe win for us, and probably an 80-85% chance MSU can pull it off with 24 free points.

11/05/2018 - 12:45pm I've seen similar called…

I've seen similar called before. I'm pretty sure returners are taught not to make any arm motions that could be even remotely mistaken for a fair catch.

The fair catch wave isn't for the refs, its for the players sprinting down the field fighting off blocks. You can't expect them to differentiate between a fair catch wave and pointing downfield. Especially when teams might be trying to replicate the fake fair catch we saw earlier in the year...

I heard the same as you on tv, thought it was funny as hell. “We own Penn State” is even better. Pretty impressed the crowd was able to sync that up to be honest.

Yeah, I kind of think we lucked out with his situation. Seems like he'll be happy finishing his career at UM. Hopefully he gets a well earned raise that pays him at the levels of a mid-P5 head coach.

It should go to the loser of PSU v Wisconsin next week, or whichever coach makes worse decisions.

Why do you think we'd hop ND or Bama? I think in the case you describe:

1) Clemson
2) ND
3) Bama
4) Michigan

Good catch, forgot about Oklahoma...

So then there isn't any precedent for them putting a 1-loss SEC team in over a 1-loss B10 champ.

11/01/2018 - 10:43am I wonder how close the OSU…

I wonder how close the OSU/Bama decision ended up being last year, since the worry is this being the same scenario just with Michigan replacing OSU.

I really don't think it's the same though... OSU's 1 loss was a 31 point rout from an 8-5 Iowa with a losing conference record. Our 1-loss would be a close road loss to an undefeated ND in week 1. I also think that Michigan brings more money to the CFP/ESPN if they make it than Bama going for the Xth time.

edit: Also, it's the first day of November... At least one of Clemson, ND, LSU, & OU will have a bad slip-up.
