The problem is every year they had one weird loss and other than 2014 it happened to be the one loss they couldn't afford. 2013 conference loss to MSU, 2015 loss to MSU, 2016 loss to Penn State, 2017 blowout by Iowa, 2018 blowout by Purdue. 9 losses in 7 years is disgusting, but 5 of those losses are the reason Urban will retire with 3 conference titles and 1 national title instead of 6 conference titles and possibly 2 or 3 national titles.

I bet you said this last year. And the year before. And the year before.

Why does OSU bother running the ball at all.

After what happened last week you want our last game of the season to be against Alabama and Tua? Do you also wear a hair shirt?

I’m done with cfb until next August.

If anything, Auburn is the one loss Bama can afford.

He's 63 years old. I'd be surprised, both if they went after him and if he accepted.

Since 2007, other than 2011, 2012, and 2015, the team that won this game finished the season higher in S&P+ than the team that lost. Bill's numbers like us this year, but MSU is such a weird team that can consistently win without looking good on the field or on the stat sheet.

Not football related, but 99% Invisible is my go-to recommendation for podcasts. Cool, short episodes about all sorts of topics, usually things that make you go "Oh yeah that thing" like curb cuts or the standard Navy Chair.

In general? Minnesota last year. Against a good team? Um. ND in 2013? They went 9*-4 I think?

Against the spread.

Phew. We're going to the game, but have a wedding in Grand Rapids Friday night. This gives us a nice buffer Saturday morning.

What happened to Prevail and Ride, by the way? Did Thujone delete everything? His blog shows no posts for me.

We had 3 shutouts in a row in 2015, that's pretty destructive.

MSU is probably the worst team to evaluate with the eye test. When's the last time MSU looked good in a game? Hell, the season they won the Rose Bowl they almost lost to Western in week 1 or 2. They'll look awful each week and infuriatingly will still win.

Nothing's changed for me. 8-4, loss to ND (check), Wisconsin, MSU, OSU.

With the same amount of wins over ND,

09/01/2018 - 11:50pm Yay, we’re Texas with a less…

Yay, we’re Texas with a less-recent National Title game and less-recent win over ND. I’m sure we’ll beat Maryland though! And Rutgers, and other awful teams, and lose to anyone with a pulse because oof, they all play football and we play whatever but with Honor and Dignity and gosh darn. I just hope we win 1 road game this year against anyone other than Rutgers.

8-4 with wins over MSU and OSU, I'll take it.

I'll be there! Corral B. Hoping for ~9 minute pace.

05/31/2018 - 11:32am What's with the Georgian

What's with the Georgian graffiti on the picture?

 

EDIT: Ah, they're the twitter profile pics for the fake accounts. Weird, wonder where he found that particular pic.

04/13/2018 - 2:38pm Does it bother anyone else

Does it bother anyone else when people put part of their comment in the subject line?

04/01/2018 - 9:22pm What do you think the Crisler

What do you think the Crisler party policy is for spouses? I’m a current grad student, and my wife is an alum but her Mcard is expired. We’d love to watch there, I’m going to call tomorrow to see if they’ll let in significant others.

I'm out of the loop on plinko references, is it just referring to random results vs. chalk?

02/07/2018 - 11:32am They are also in the Big Ten

They are also in the Big Ten West and don't have to play MSU, OSU, PSU every year.

02/07/2018 - 11:15am The college football, and Big

The college football, and Big Ten, landscape in 2018 is on a whole different world than it was in 1997, especially when it comes to recruiting.

02/07/2018 - 11:08am Yeah I guess we could match

Yeah I guess we could match up with the Bobcats in a bowl.

Horseshoes and hand grenades.

02/05/2018 - 1:28pm Brian, what do you think

Brian, what do you think would be the best solution to the issues one-and-done causes? Would removing the rule be feasible or no?

01/29/2018 - 3:15pm Hey, some sweet, sweet

Hey, some sweet, sweet validation for yours truly. Feels good man.

I loved my undergrad time at W&M, and I've really liked my grad school experience at Michigan, but there's certainly some major differences between the two.

W&M not having engineering or med programs definitely hindered the academics. But I feel like I wouldn't have done as well socially or academically as an undergrad here as I did at W&M because UM is such a big school, I think I would have been too overwhelmed.

It was a massive change for me, going from a place with ~7,000 total students and a quaint campus you can walk across in 15 minutes to somewhere with ~40,000 students with multiple campuses and multiple schools of study. To me, it's a completely different sense of community and identity here vs. at W&M, not necessarily worse or better, but I think it can affect people in varied ways.

I haven't been there for dinner, how is it? I've gone twice for brunch and really liked it!

01/29/2018 - 10:52am Jolly Pumpkin, Frita Batidos,

Jolly Pumpkin, Frita Batidos, Tomukun are 3 of my favorite go-tos.

01/29/2018 - 10:50am A lot of the Main Street

A lot of the Main Street restaurants are overrated and overpriced, Gratzi is definitely one of them.

01/03/2018 - 10:47am Guess he really wants that

Guess he really wants that 4th loss to OSU.

Overall winning percentage is the 7th tiebreaker, we'd get eliminated at tiebreaker 3, with 2 division losses: http://www.bigten.org/sports/m-footbl/archive/081011aaa.html

10/12/2017 - 12:18pm Only two? Out of Penn State,

Only two? Out of Penn State, Wisconsin, and OSU, I'm assuming you're discounting Wisconsin?

I have OSU winning as my highest confidence pick in a pick'em for the win-win: I either get max points, or an OSU loss.
