I feel like we already get content about the conference in the weekly podcasts that wrap up the UM game, as well as how the rest of conference fared, and the opponent watch columns.  More content would always be welcome, but let’s not forget about the bevy of content already available during the season.

I was supposed to be there tonight...the weather interfered.  Go Blue!

maybe trying to avoid someone defending the decision and starting some sort of flame war?  trying to avoid having to send people to Bolivia preemptively?  who knows...

Idk man...I saw the rumor last night and thought it was debunked immediately, but then I saw more stuff on Twitter this morning (apparently the original fake tweet) and got excited...

Ok cool..but is Harris leaving Bama or not?  If so, is there enough mutual interest he could follow Gattis here?

yeah...I'm gonna go ahead and disagree with you there.  I want to be able to like the people I cheer for, and Art Briles/Urban Meyer/anyone associated with PSU under Paterno and the like are all people that I don't want to cheer for, regardless of the "success" they might bring, because the cost of that success is too high.

Playoffs expand to 16 teams, CCGs become nothing but money grabs that have no bearing on who makes said playoffs

12/05/2018 - 3:33pm if UM and OSU can possibly…

if UM and OSU can possibly play each other in the B1G Championship Game (due to being in different divisions b/c the format changes to take the top 2 teams), they should play Week 1.  Move the additional OOC game to week 12 just like the SEC and then play a secondary rival the week after Thanksgiving.  Everyone will hate it until OSU and UM play each other in the B1G Championship and the winner goes to the CFP.  Then the conference will be happy, the fans of the winning team will be happy and the fans of the losing team will point out how unfair they had to play the same team they beat at the beginning of the season twice or wallow in 2 rivalry losses in one season, while TWIS has a guaranteed column built around rematch.  

This obviously is something only fans of UM & OSU would be against.  Everyone else would love it. The Conference and TV execs especially.

12 team Keeper league, Auction Draft, FAAB

 

12-1 1st overall, 1st in PF, 12th in PA

Best Lineup:

QB: Mahomes

RB: Gurley (acquired via trade)

WR: Julio

TE: Kelce

Flex: MGIII

Flex: E Sanders

Flex: R Freeman

K: Zuerlein 

DST: Chargers

Last Tuesday I traded L Jackson Julio, and an injured MGIII for Kareem Hunt...so yeah...followed that up by trading Guice for Cohen Friday morning.

and of course the guy I send Julio and MGIII to is my first round matchup.  Looks like another early exit for me (this is year 4 for me, all three previous years have been 1st round exits to teams that either win it all or lose in the Final).

i am something of a good luck charm for my opponents

12/03/2018 - 4:43pm While your points are valid,…

While your points are valid, they don't really move the needle as they are all about the perception, rather than the reality of the program.

If UM wins its 11th game or loses it's third, the season's level of success will neither increase or decrease.  And "momentum" into next season is as ephemeral a concept as luck and Delaney intelligence, as they are all theoretical and cannot be proven to exist.

Go Georgia, Clemson, ND, NW, and Oklahoma.  Send those fuckers to Pasadena and keep them out of the playoffs...let them get embarrassed in the  Rose Bowl (hopefully) while UM mops up whoever in the Citrus or whatever other NY6 game.

My wife and I will be Indy, as we are every year...sold my tickets though...we have a dinner reservation downtown, but skipping that isn’t out of the question as we may wait until the game starts and then go to one of the nicer restaurants after they clear out of the fans on the way to the game. We will probably see a movie and turn in to our prepaid, non-refundable Airbnb and then head out of town first thing on Sunday.

someday...someday...

Nope...B1G East Champion and B1G Champion would salve any loss...who cares if that loss keeps you out of the playoff?  

I buy these damn B1G Championship Game tickets every damn year...I’ve seen more OSU games than UM games in person in my lifetime as a result...I’ve sold the tickets this year and last as a result.  I’m 38 and just want to see UM in Indy once before I die, and at this point I’m not sure it’s going to happen.

I would force OSU out of the B1G and to fold up all their athletic programs

11/25/2018 - 10:41am I agree with you about the…

I agree with you about the program needing to be completely rebuilt after the RR era.  Hoke, while not up to the high standards UM has and aspires to, did beat OSU.  

The point now is, UM is a distant 2nd to OSU and has a ton of ground to make up before UM can expect to be winning games against good teams for one reason or another.  Harbaugh is the only answer UM has, and any take that says he should be gone is a bad one.  The real festering issue is that this season may be as good as it gets of UM until Meyer moves on.  Dantonio is a dinosaur who can’t field a complete team and might win1/5 against UM if he stays.  Pretty much the same thing for Franklin and PSU.  UM can continue to pave the bottom half of the East while staying competitive with the best of the West and win 9/10 games every year, with the occasional 11 win regular season thrown in.  But after the last 20 years, I can no longer expect UM to beat OSU.  I’m beginning to wonder if it will happen again in my lifetime.  I’m 38...

At this point, I honestly expect OSU will find the next Saban when Meyer does move on, whether that’s this off season or 15 years from now.  It doesn’t matter because God hates UM and all their fans.

11/24/2018 - 5:23pm Oh god I hope Ohio State…

Oh god I hope Ohio State goes to the Rose Bowl...I don’t care what bowl game UM goes to...pretty sure I won’t be watching because honestly, who cares if they win that game?  The same crappy narratives will be spewed all off season and through 2019 until UM wins the damn East. 

Yes, I’m frustrated.  I live in Dayton Ohio and am surrounded by asshole buckeye fans as my notifications can attest.  Ohio State did enough today to dissuade anyone hat getting beat by 29 at Purdue was enough to keep them out of the playoff.  Unless Georgia or Auburn beat Bama, OSU is in.  And it sickens me.

Good things keep happening to bad people and I can’t reconcile it with karma or an all powerful God or anything else that would suggest that doing right is rewarded.

Considering that there has to be a ton of people watching just for fantasy football reasons...the TOs don’t hurt as much as the TDs and yards help, so it makes sense in that regard.

Only if you don’t care who’s playing that weekend (something about chickens, eggs, you get it).  I’ve gone to Indy every year and only skipped one game (last year).  Plenty to do downtown and the energy from the crowd is always a good vibe.

Not to go all Lumburg on you, but I’m gonna have to disagree with you there.  Galloway is always on OSU’s jock and Herbie isn’t much better.  

Yes, he got run out of C’bus, but not because he was unbiased, but rather because he was let biased enough for the OSU faithful.  Don’t give him too much credit, he still parades his kids in their OSU jerseys and buckeye necklaces at every opportunity on Game Day.

11/06/2018 - 5:45pm Besides hotel rooms and…

Besides hotel rooms and tickets, the other thing to consider is making a reservation at one of the dining establishments around the stadium, as they fill up early and stay that way until about 40 minutes before kickoff (or as soon as people realize they’ll miss the kick if they sit down for dinner).  St Elmo’s (world famous cocktail sauce), Harry & Izzies (sister location to St Elmo’s), and Ruth Chris were all booked when I went to set a reservation, but I will be at Fogo de chao at 6pm so it worked out.
