Totally agreed. Once you are out of the playoff race, the season is over. The bowl game is all about building something better for next year. Why waste practice reps and snaps on guys who aren't going to be part of the team next year? The justification for playing seniors or early NFL entrees who WANT to play is that their experience and mentoring is still very valuable to underclassmen.

But I really don't think that players skipping non-playoff bowl games is a big deal. Once a player skips a playoff game, we can talk about there being an actual issue.

I know it shouldn't but this cracks me up

Great work! Somewhat surprising, because the narrative of people being far from home getting homesick or not liking the new environment seems like it would have some validity.

Let's not open that can of worms.

Detroit is trying to attract more tech jobs. My wife was paid to learn how to do web app development for an agency that is funded by Gilbert. He funds tons of similar companies that are trying to attract young people and build up the braintrust in the city. (The issue that it totally ignores the native Detroit population is a whole other beast...)

IMO, a big problem is that Quicken Loans is a terrible sham company and it runs much of the city.

12/10/2018 - 1:27pm I went to school in Detroit…

I went to school in Detroit from 2013-2017. Lived in the city for two years, and Grosse Pointe for the other two. 

The changes to the downtown area and area surrounding the Wayne State campus (aka "Mid-town") have been very drastic. Tons of new development. But, the prices there are absurd. For a one-bedroom apartment in the city, my wife and I were paying $1400 a month. It was a very nice apartment, but that's an absurd price for Detroit. However, that choice was entirely our own. We chose that mainly for convenience. My wife worked a block from our apartment, and I could walk to my school and the DMC campus.

There are plenty of very very nice apartments and houses you can rent in surrounding neighborhoods (such as Woodbridge) for ~$200-$500/month. Nicely updated, very charming. The issue is that petty crime there is rampant. You have to assume that your car will be vandalized at least a couple of times. None of my classmates who lived there had issues with break-ins, but one person had their car stolen.

And all of this ignores the fact that there is little or no money being put into the neighborhoods that have made Detroit infamous. Detroit is such a huge fucking city. The vast majority of native Detroiters don't live in any of these areas. They aren't seeing any impact on the city's "revival" and can't afford any of the new stuff anyways. 

It's a complex issue for sure...

Wow this is a bottom 10 take I’ve read on this blog.

Michigan under Beilein is never going to get a Zion or Embiid. Outside of that tier, we are recruiting very well. Michigan isn’t going to recruit someone with All-NBA level potential, but we are recruiting great college players.

I feel like Brian is intentionally trolling us by not giving us a take on Meyer retiring.

My wife and I share an Amazon account, so I found out I will be playing Red Dead Redemption 2 after Christmas.

12/05/2018 - 1:17pm The only thing worse than…

The only thing worse than losing to OSU once would be losing to OSU twice in two weeks.

Alternatively, no Michigan season in history would be as good as one that included two consecutive victories of OSU.

However, I don't really think it makes sense to use the same system as the Big 12 when there is such a huge rivalry slotted for the last week of every season.

My team is number one in points for and against. Still managed to eke out the top seed, albeit with 4 losses. Have 200 more points than the next closest team.

You had me until the Northwestern comment. You can’t retain the “sanctity” of college football and let Northwestern into the playoffs.

I agree with everything except 3. CFP has totally negated the stage of the other bowls.

His odds of playing time are better at Cincy than they were here. That’s a pretty big deal.

The term arm punt has nothing to do with the quality of the pass. It only has to do with the fact that the target isn’t necessarily wide open and you’re just giving them a shot to make a play. See any jump ball to Braylon Edwards against MSU.

Can someone explain why Michigan would willingly violate rules, but not be willing to compete with the likes of OSU, Bama, Clemson, etc.?

As long as it is above board and the payment info is publicly available, I'm all for little other regulation.

The admission standards may be slightly higher at Michigan, but you're kidding yourself if you think it is appreciably harder for a top notch athlete to pass by here compared to OSU or Bama.

11/26/2018 - 7:06pm This game made me totally re…

This game made me totally re-evaluate my conception of the Big 12. Oklahoma probably has a below average defense, but our defensive metrics would be so much worse if we played in that conference. Oklahoma, WV, Texas, TTech, and OKST would all put up 30+ on us.

I think the score against OU would be similar to The Game, at best.

11/26/2018 - 7:01pm To me, this is worse. It was…

To me, this is worse. It was easy to tell that Rich Rod was a terrible fit and an anomaly. I don't think there was anybody who expected Michigan to have suddenly sunk to the permanent hole of a Kansas or Rutgers football program.

Now, however, it feels like we have hit our ceiling. And the ceiling is a good team. For me, that is way more depressing than a couple terrible seasons. 

11/26/2018 - 5:56pm Anybody but Oklahoma. That…

Anybody but Oklahoma. That team would do terrible things to us. Don't need to be fucked while we're still down.
