Yup--a highly competitive Cubs/Dodgers NLCS is ideal from a UM football perspective.
|09/25/2018 - 10:22am||Depends on how the NLCS is…||
Depends on how the NLCS is trending. Game 7 is scheduled for 10/20 on FOX/FS1. The UM/MSU game will also be on FOX/FS1. No way FOX would put them head-to-head.

Look at the OP's comment history. Obvious troll is obvious.

Yup--the OL had Hutchinson in a reverse bear hug.
|09/22/2018 - 4:07pm||IIRC, Gary & Winovich both…||
IIRC, Gary & Winovich both got pulled with 5:00-ish left in the 2nd and UM up 39-0. Don't think I saw either during the remaining 35:00, for obvious reasons.
|09/21/2018 - 5:00pm||[WHOOSH]||
|09/21/2018 - 11:15am||Seconded. Also, the "top"…||
Seconded. Also, the "top" half should be cyan--pass sets and whatnot.
|09/19/2018 - 11:20am||Totally agree.
The only people who don't acknowledge that Meyer is morally bankrupt to the nth degree are those with a vested interest in his continued coaching success.

I have yet to see any ninja skills against a real team going back years...
Which is why they're repping it against the tomato cans on the schedule.
|09/18/2018 - 3:33pm||That was available all day…||
That was available all day. Why not run it all day? Because that's not how you become a ninja.
What percentage of the BAWWWWWWW crowd doesn't understand this? Because I don't think any of them understand this.
|09/18/2018 - 10:35am||Incorrect. Our tackles suck…||
Incorrect. Our tackles suck. Harbaugh's offense is stupid and unimaginative. Don Brown needs to play more zone. Gary and DPJ aren't living up to their 5* rankings.

No way--we'd totally adapt... and simply touch ourselves during the day.

Wrigley & Comiskey, too. And MLB has to actually compensate their players for their work.

It moved a little just thinking about this.

Pretty sure S&P removes anything that happens when the difference is 2+ scores, as well.

You do realize that stats like S&P and FEI are opponent-adjusted, right?
|09/15/2018 - 11:36pm||Their backup qb did a hell…||
Their backup qb did a hell of a job.
He had 82 yards on 17 attempts. SMU's offense after the half was "throw pass to blanketed receiver, pray for flag." And the officials obliged.
|09/11/2018 - 9:51am||1,000% correct.||
|09/10/2018 - 3:28pm||I've always assumed that the…||
I've always assumed that the type of person you're describing isn't mad at the thing they're booing, but at life in general. It doesn't make it better, but it at least lets my brain rationalize the behavior.

In my brain, you're actually Marcus Ray.

|09/07/2018 - 9:53am||I still occasionally think…||
I still occasionally think about that game and shake my head. 2016 was the year, man. If UM doesn't get done dirty in The Game, they most likely win the B1G and are in the CFP in Year 2. Which changes outside perception of the program to the nth degree.
|09/05/2018 - 2:21pm||http://www.espn.com/nfl…||
To be clear, teams aren't "due" to decline and have a subpar record the following year; that's the gambler's fallacy. Teams with particularly good or bad marks during a year of one-score games are equally likely to be great or terrible in those games the following year. Our expectation is that they'll be average, which is what we call regression toward the mean.
On average, teams will go .500 in close games. Dumb luck.

A question for the numerous coaches who frequent here--is there a way to scheme a functional offense when your tackles are this bad? Or is it automatic DEATH?
|09/04/2018 - 9:02pm||Beating Florida in the state…||
Beating Florida in the state of Florida isn't a road win? Just because it wasn't in Gainesville?
Seems like semantics.

Does 2016 Penn State count as a big game?
Or 2016 Wisconsin?
They both felt pretty big at the time.

The U is comparable to B1G schools academic-wise.
|08/26/2018 - 8:34pm||See, you'd think that. But…||
See, you'd think that. But a couple very good buddies of mine are Iowa grads. And they hate UM.
More than Wisconsin/Nebraska/Minnesota despite the natural rivalries.
More than Penn State despite Sandusky.
More than Ohio State despite Urban condoning spousal abuse for a decade.
More than Sparty despite decades of enabling child molestation and sexual violence against coeds (and at least one canine).
No, they hate UM, because "They're so damn arrogant."

And wearing #2? Yeah, that works.

...but BMO's in Canada--gotta assume that the threshold's lower there. Also, remember that Chicago was rejected in the US's 2022 bid, too.

Remember reading a while back that Chicago apparently wasn't under consideration due to the seating capacity (only 61,500) of Soldier Field.

Format changes to 16 groups of three starting in 2026, too.

Of course Alabama has a Kenyan distance runner. Even their track & field bagmen are on point.

At any given point, each franchise prolly has a dozen-ish kids in their system who are legit MLB prospects. And those kids need to play in minor league games...
Rookie (anywhere from two to four teams)
...and each of those teams needs 25-ish players. Meaning each team has at least 150 minor league players who exist solely so that the dozen-ish with an MLB future can play competitive baseball every day. Hence the 40 round draft.

I mean, this would've improved UM's QB situation last year. Not exactly a high bar to clear.
|05/31/2018 - 5:33pm||I'd wager on a 3:30 kickoff.||
UM/MSU falls on the same day as a hypothetical NLCS Game 6, which would also be on either FOX or FS1.

Techincally, you're correct. Technically.
