Definition of Price Gouging

Noun

  1. The practice of raising prices on certain types of goods and services to an unfair level, especially during a state of emergency.

It's not that they charge rent, it's the ridiculous prices they charge.  I think these parents would be better off financially buying their kid a car and an apartment in a neighboring town, and telling Ann Arbor landlords to get bent.

He is a great recruiter, but if he was a great coach he would've been at least a DC by now, and most likely a HC somewhere at least in the Group of 5.

“Every year is its own chapter, but the story doesn’t really change,” said Ramzy Nasrallah, executive editor of the Ohio State site Eleven Warriors. “The story is that Ohio State’s aspiration is to be Michigan.”

Hopefully Davis has a steep learning curve he can climb.  It's going to be a very rough film session for him today.

13-2 in 3+ minutes, 6 possessions for both teams during the most game-changing stretch of the night.  Woof.

You just know Ubrz will be sending his game plan to Mullen.

I don't like this match-up, seriously. I don't think this is where our program nor fanbase wants to be while the Gators will be fired up to springboard the Mullen era.

11/29/2018 - 10:48am Okay, let's play using S&P…

Okay, let's play using S&P win probabilities.

Georgia has 57% chance of losing, Ohio State 12%, Oklahoma 18%, and since Milton is hurt let's suppose UCF has an astonishing 80% chance of losing.  Since all of these would have to occur, that would be:

0.57 * 0.12 * 0.18 * 0.80 = 0.0098496 which is about 1 chance in 100.  

Now, Georgia would have to get blown out b/c if they play 'Bama close and the rest happens, it's quite easy to conclude Georgia is the 4th best team ahead of everyone else.  What are the chances that happens? If Bama and Georgia played 10 times, how many times is it a Bama blow out?  Let's throw out 2 (which is crazy high).  The formula then becomes:

0.20 * 0.12 * 0.18 * 0.80 = 0.003456 which is about 1 chance in 300.  

Then again, let's say that without Milton, UCF will almost certainly lose to Memphis (who they struggled with even when they had Milton, 31-30).  Recall November 12, 2016: #2 Michigan lost to unranked Iowa (/throws up in mouth), #3 Clemson lost at home to unranked. Pitt, and #4 Washington lost to unranked USC.

 

11/29/2018 - 10:06am Georgia would definitely…

Georgia would definitely have to get blown out but I don't think OSU would have to.  If they play the way they did vs. Purdue, Maryland, and basically everyone on their schedule not named Michigan--and lose--I think the committee would reasonably conclude that this is the true Buckeye team and the Michigan game was an aberration, thus Michigan is better equipped to play other playoff teams.  I think the only way OSU gets in is if they blow out Northwestern, as well as have their previous flaws tested and demonstrate they no longer exist.

I attended school when Yost was probably it's best (98-03)

'90-'97 was just as good.

11/29/2018 - 12:28am They've played 4 times and…

They've played 4 times and Harbaugh has won the coaching matchup twice.  They are pretty much equals in my opinion. 2016 they lost b/c of turnovers and zebras, 2017 b/c of pure talent, but Harbaugh out-coached Meyer both of those years, so Ramzy can take his theories and shove 'em.  2015 was talent and coaching in favor of OSU (thanks for taking the week off, DJ) and that's how you get 42-13.  I would say OSU dominated the coaching Saturday and had a slight advantage in talent.  Michigan dominated the 90s b/c of John Cooper, flat out.

Harbaugh and Meyer will trade blows year-in, year-out but in the long run, if Michigan wants to be even with OSU, they're going to have to recruit on par with them.  A #22 class here and there won't cut it.

Now that I think about it, I don't recall our pass rush getting home against Indiana and their quick crossing routes, either.  When it did, Ramsey gashed us scrambling. The latter is probably why the DTs didn't try to beat their blockers harder.

My great hope for the NET rankings is that by season's end, they'll be pretty damned accurate and strongly demonstrate the silliness of preseason polls, thereby rendering them powerless.

Nah, the committee should just pick 'Bama's 2's for the 4 spot.

Georgia would have to take a worse beating than we just did.  Under your scenario, if the Dawgs played the Tide close there'd probably be a rematch in the semis.

But if Bama won 63-7 and the rest played out, I would love it.  No way the Bucks lose to NW, though.  If anything, Urbs will run it up to impress the committee.

Offense put up 20 in the 4th quarter when their D relaxed.

Offense had (essentially) 20 in the first three, one score coming when they handed us the ball inside their 10.  

Offense had 238 yards and averaged 4.3 yards per play through 3 quarters.

Space,

I don't know if you can answer this one, but I was curious why Michigan got zero pressure? Specifically, did OSU change pass pro schemes from what they've been doing all season? It just doesn't make sense that the defense with the #1 sack rate in the country got zero pressure against a team that couldn't block Minnesota's pass rush. I went to see Don Brown speak a few years back and know that he studies the pass pro scheme and attacks it, and for this game whatever attack happened was completely impotent.

Probably not the best idea to shame the team that just blew your doors off with the entire world watching when you were predicted by everyone to win that game.

For common opponent comparison, also look at the yards gained and allowed; e.g. vs. MSU Michigan was about 400 to 100, OSU about 350 to 275; vs. PSU Michigan 400 to 200, OSU outgained 500 to 400.
