If you're talking historical, sure, but this year's team has been pretty dominant. They curbstomped FSU, beat South Carolina by 17 in Columbia, won by 20 @ Clemson. There will be some movement this week in the polls at the top as Virginia plays at Duke and home against VT. They'll be in Raleigh in 2 weeks as well. For Michigan, just keep winning, #1 will come in time.

Temple got paid $6.5M in buyouts. I think they'll be fine.

Wonder why he chose Maumee Valley and not St John's. Much better competition level and some of the best coaching in the area that has put out several high level players over the past couple decades.

This season worked out perfect for a 6-team playoff. Ohio State @ Notre Dame; Georgia @Oklahoma; Bama and Clemson with a first round bye.

Glad to see UCLA fire Alford so I can go back to hating them.

I'd wager a good bit of money that this kid plays baseball and is a middle infielder/ third baseman  with the way he throws the ball, especially on the run.

We're going to be in Toledo for Christmas and looking at attending the Air Force game. Haven't found much under $35, unless it's the last few rows in the upper bowl.

What are they charging for tickets? Not saying Michigan needs to go this cheap, but we go to FSU games during the week. Tickets are $12 for lower bowl general admission. We usually sit in the first 10 rows on the baseline.

Apparently, picture of Chase slapping hands w/ fans after game against Nebraska = Chase healthy

3-year outdoor durability is crap quality. Probably calendared vinyl that will peel and crack after a few years. If they don't say it's cast vinyl, I wouldn't buy it. I just print my own, buy that's what I'd recommend. Having rapid air or egress air adhesive is a bonus and makes install a breeze.

Same here. The driving up from Florida part. We own pants in North Florida though.

The best part about the piece is that it's been up for a couple hours and has zero comments. Freakin' glorious.

Unfortunately, drinking water tonight. Day 3 with no electricity. Hoping we get it before the game tomorrow.

re: Pass Interference... I thought the same thing live. Why is that DB allowed to jump on McKeon's back before the ball gets there?

I think the knock on the S&C staff is warranted. One thing you glean from watching tennis is every opportunity they get to replenish and rehydrate, they're doing so. Federer eats a bite of banana periodically throughout the match. Nadal has a special "recuperation" drink that he prefers during matches. I can only think of one instance in the current US Open of a player cramping up, despite the extreme heat they're experiencing during play right now. I don't know what the Michigan staff does specifically, but there's surely a problem; having two of your most important players sitting on the sideline simply cannot happen. 

09/01/2018 - 12:42pm Do some of these pass…

Do some of these pass interference calls we've seen so far this weekend seem concerning? Looks like they're calling it very close and any contact is being called.

North Florida here. I just checked on the google doc and it says it's going to be mailed out next week.

Sign up on Massdrop and request the A1E drop. They've run it maybe 3 times now, not sure if they will again or not considering the 2018 A8F is the new model, though they're pretty much identical other than the stand, which won't matter if you're going to mount it on a wall. 

My dad got the 65" for $2900, but on the last drop, the 55" was $2100. They shave off about $300 every new drop. The 65" was going for around $3500 at all the normal retailers (plus 10% tax in Alabama). Massdrop there is no tax, so we figure he saved close to a grand at the time of purchase.

My dad got into a Sony A1E after his plasma finally gave way. Ridiculous screen. Got it from massdrop with a really nice discount, plus no sales tax. I'm still using a Panasonic plasma. Would definitely consider a Sony OLED when the time comes.

Go with PSVue, they stream most of the sports stations at 60 fps, so you don't get the stop-motion effect.

Sam's has an app you scan and purchase your own items. I use it everytime, never had an issue.

Yes, you are correct. That is for 2 semesters. My major point still stands though, that these athletes can live pretty comfortably and still pocket a pretty decent amount of cash after graduation. My analysis was just a quick look. I bet if you dove into the numbers a bit, you'd find that I grossly over estimated cost of living.

04/25/2018 - 2:51pm I've said this before

I've said this before concerning paying athletes, but how much more do you pay them? With current room and board rates, an athlete that does not live in campus housing collects $14,816 per semester from the university. Minus living expenses (~$700 rent, ~$200 utilities, ~$300-400 food), you could walk away with a Michigan degree and north of $50,000 in your pocket, more if you require a fifth year to complete your degree.

You also have a marquee matchup with Miami (ytm) coming to town the second week of the season.

Not sure if I qualify as a jackass, but I thought the opportunity at Toledo was unbelievable. Returning 3 all conference receivers, good o line, RBs will be good again, pass happy offense.

03/27/2018 - 6:22pm The next "big payoff" isn't

The next "big payoff" isn't going to one-and-dones, it's consistently getting top 40-80 guys. Michigan is getting 60-130 type guys in the recent past and occassionally a higher rated player. If they can get to that next tier, Michigan will be a perennial power.

Basketball is a head count sport. If you're on scholarship, it counts against basketball.

For the record, FSU went with Forest when CJ Walker pulled a groin. I disagree with Cofer on the SIBMIHHAT metric. Michigan should be very mad if he starts hitting threes. He's an extremely streaky shooter, as most of FSU's players are. Angola has been solid all season; Savoy has really come on in the second half of the season. MJ Walker is a solid player who is going to be a top player in the conference the new few years, he's just been struggling recently. This game is a great matchup for Wagner as the only big FSU has that can stick with him is Kabengele.

Can't understand why Gonzaga went away from the zone. FSU has struggled all year against the zone.

03/22/2018 - 11:45pm I live in Tallahassee; I've been to a few games

I live in Tallahassee; I've been to a few games this year. They turn the ball over a ton and don't shoot the ball from 3 very well. Somehow, they're a team that figures out how to win. They play pretty solid defense. They're long and athletic, but I think Michigan matches up really well with them. It always seems like someone different is stepping up every game. They are very streaky shooting the ball. Angola is probably their most clutch guy, which should be an interesting matchup for Z.

03/20/2018 - 2:36pm He actually did it again on

He actually did it again on the next four free throws he shot. 

03/20/2018 - 2:34pm Interesting thing I noticed

Interesting thing I noticed while watching that "Last 90 seconds" video: when Devin Davis hit both free throws to give Houston a 1 point edge at 62-61, he actually should have been called for a lane violation on both shots. The first one was really bad and it looked like the ref at the bottom walked up and said something to him about it. The second free throw was really close, and I can understand it not being called live, but he did enter the lane before the ball hit the rim.

The post about him buying a new Dodge Ram doesn't look so hot either.

Still surprised Toledo hasn't been involved. Pass friendly offense that is in desperate need of a qb and is returning 3 of the conference's top receivers.
