Like the idea. Not really fair to judge soccer solely on penalties though. They do play an extra 30 minutes (which is an extra 1/3 of a game) before resorting to that.

this is only a good idea if the conference goes to two divisions with promotion and relegation. no way that is happening because we cant have anything nice but man that would be fun!

If Warriner did everything he could to report the DV, then he stays. Anybody who protected Smith's interests over that of the victim should not be employed by a university, especially the University of Michigan. To say otherwise is hypocritical.
Quite plausibly all he could have done at the time was report it to the head football coach, especially if that coach assured him that it was being handled. Obtaining the facts will be difficult, but at a minimum, I would expect the athletic department and Harbaugh to be asking him some tough questions.

7 more saturdays without football. Make sure your wife uses them wisely

This sounds like the luck metric on kenpom. “We expected you to win this many and you won more/less”. So I think a reversion to the mean is due for JH

The real problem is that these championship games (one random game) decide conference champions. NCAA should have conference champions in their playoffs and put it to their conferences to figure out how to do a better job of deciding their conference winners. Can you imagine if a Bo team won a B10 championship but another team went to the rose bowl because some Very Important People thought the other team was "better". Just because conferences screwed the pooch doesn't mean the NCAA should start picking teams out of their asses. The best playoff is a championship of champions. The real issue is the champions as currently being determined are crappy because the conferences broke themselves trying to get all the Cable Subscribers.
Now get off my lawn.

I'm still nervous about our QB situation. Jury is still out as to how Speight performs when a D can stop our run game without committing 9 to the box. Only Wisconsin could do that to date. Our defense can hold anyone below 20 but am nervous our offense is not balanced enough to score that many against elite defenses.
Speights QB rating is really good but think that is more of a testament to our run game, who we played and harbaugh calling harbaugh plays.

Really like this post every week. Can you add field position per drive? If I understand these stats right this would give us the expected points per drive and a better understanding of actual field position since my guess is we are on the lower end of total possessions each week this skewing our ranking in the field position category

|12/04/2012 - 2:14pm||An idea from the NFL||
It would be interesting if instead of protected rivals they did like the NFL does:
You play the two teams that finished in the same place in the pod the previous year. So if you win your pod, the next year you play your seven divisional games and then the previous years winners of the other two pods.
|12/04/2012 - 11:48am||Pods suggestion||
I like the pods idea.
However, I think that M and OSU need to be in the same pod, for the same arguments this site as made for keeping them in the same division. I would essentially switch OSU and ND.
Pod A Pod B Pod C Pod D
Minnesota Michigan Notre Dame East 1
Wisconsin MSU Northwestern East 2
Iowa OSU Illinois PSU
Nebraska Indiana Purdue East 3
The horizontal groupings are the teams that would play every year, even if the pods are not paired as divisions.
