Don't take this wrong, but not caring about Michigan's record before he was born does not mean he'll start wwiii.

Lets just admit it: we care about the past because that's when we were good. 

09/25/2018 - 2:26pm Prove it.

Prove it.

Don't worry

It'll be fixed next year.

09/24/2018 - 3:31pm To make a pass, one must…

To make a pass, one must possess the ball.

To possess a thrown ball, one must catch it.

To catch it, one must have one's foot hit the ground.

So. .. If he didn't "complete the catch", how could he throw it?

09/24/2018 - 12:18pm Because wins are more…

Because wins are more important than non-athlete lives.

Do you even watch our division? 

09/22/2018 - 11:22pm Because he tackles people…

Because he tackles people. Sonse targeting is totally random, as you increase your sample of tackles, so will you increase your amount of targetting.

I believe it follows a Poisson distribution.

This does not relate to coaching. 

Google Image searches of Holly Saunders in the state of Michigan have increased by 100,000,000% .

Also, good coaching.

09/20/2018 - 11:45am This always baffled me. If…

This always baffled me. If we say "th3 buck stops at the top" , where is the "top"? Is it the HC, since he hired him? What about the AD, who hired the HC? Continuing, why not the President, who hired the AD, BOT who (I presume) selects the president, and finally* the voters, who elect the BOT? Like. . . isn't it arbitrary where we decide the buck stops?

I'm not saying either is exculpable, but the logic was always funny to me.

*in MSUs case. 

09/20/2018 - 6:22am Your words. Every fan base…

Your words. Every fan base says them about their QB  Recruit.


Therefore, they are given .001 grains of salt.

Well, mathematically speaking, trumps ethics = 0.

So [anything] > trumps ethics.

Think of projections as Gaussian Distributions in close proximity to each other. This will help you sleep better. And be more accurate.


Please don't read projections as point estimates. Read them as "this is the mean expectation. This prediction comes with Variance."

09/18/2018 - 1:17pm Astute.

So you're asking …


So you're asking "why things changed from last year?"

And your answer is "because the only thing that changed [losing high-impact performer; losing 2 starters]. . . .changed"

If Robbie Hummel can get 8 years, why can't Rahk?

09/03/2018 - 6:38am So you suggest he do that…

So you suggest he do that during an AWAY game?! This happened in OSU. He was hit witb a "you are opposing team; we are paid" penalty. And lo, there was much bereavement and bitching and moaning on Michigan Fan's part. "WHY won't he stop this madness?!" We cried.

And lo, he stopped the madness. And the team lost games. And the humans sought patterns, and found correlation. They told themselves it was causation, because -- [editor's note, we're not really sure *WHY*, we just think they are silly like that.] Well, because Reasons!!

And they were angry.

(Editors Note 2: we believe that had Michigan won, people would have delighted "wow, his new anti s really make the team better!")

09/03/2018 - 6:26am Lol, you ain't gonna…

Lol, you ain't gonna convince this man through logic.

"Jim Tressel was literally rigging raffles."

His response: "How can we not get instate recruits?! Ohio does it. But we won't use their re recruiting tactics, but will still reap the same rewards."

I think you can say "He should have been fired, he did a lot of bad things (office stuff, tardiness, etc)" and also say "but I don't personally know whether he's an abuser".

We can do regressions until Ed Feng climaxes. This will not disprove the point.

Holy stats Batman!

08/22/2018 - 7:27pm It's not just about winning…

It's not just about winning though. Recruiting is about branding too. Compare Clemson to OUSE.

Look, at Clemson, you can win games against anyone. 'bama, OSU, etc.

But at OSU you can BEAT anyone.

Any 4/5 star who has starts in freshman year went on to NFL.

Funchess, Manningham, Avant, Bellamy, Walker, Terrell, Tao Streets, Tommer, Hayes.

Going back to 1990.

They are definitely students first.

30 hour weeks of practice, lifting, and film.
10 hours of credits in communication.

Student-Athletes.  one quarter student, .75 athlete.  But it says it in the title so it must be true.

07/19/2018 - 12:58pm You don't get it.


You don't get it.

Soccer and basketball are contact sports.

Football is a collision sport.


Now, regarding scoring.
There are tons of ways to "score" that around counted as points.  For instance, in US football, a third down conversion is huge.  Or a turnover.  Those aren't points, but they make the game interesting.  But if you don't understand their impact, they're boring.  Same with soccer -- the only people who consider it boring are the people blind to the intricacies.

But this isn't gonna convince you.  I suspect you just want MOAR HITTING, MOAR SKOARING!

[Izzo walks into recruit's room]

"Belein will get you paid, but it’ll be later.  (I believe there’s a “daft” that they do.  I get a lotta guys in it, so some people call me Daft for short.  Which I am not.  Anyways.)  We’ll pay you right now, and we’ll pay for your family’s dinner.  You might have to pay it back later, but hey. . . $140 now, or $1 point 4 [quietly] million [back to loud] in the draft later?  Look. . . I don’t pay too much attention to numbers – heck, we don’t even require it anymore – but I know that 14 is a lot more than 1 point 4. 

And he's had a lot of kids drafted lately, but they come in with ranking a lot higher than ours.  100+ ratings!  And it still takes him 3 years to get Stauskas drafted.  Bring me a weird guy with one tenth of that ranking (top 32), and I'll get him drafted in 4 years.  Wouldn't you rather spend MORE time in college?

And they also fire people who enable!  I don't do numbers so good, but here in EL winning > ethics!

Give: 5 seconds of reading time.

Receive: millions to favorite school.

Reaction: complain that gift is not good enough (for him). States other people have giant egos.

Verdict: sounds legit.

See Magnus, this is why your site doesnt get as much traffic as MGo. Not enough political discourse.
