Only because they are using ELO as the basis of their rank, which isn't only about record but about the relevant rankings of each team that you beat or lose to. 

11/21/2018 - 3:22pm Bowl performance isn't…

Bowl performance isn't relevant to their analysis, which is about hype going into The Game. The elo scores are calculated based on performance before the game.

Nope, don't remember. Pretty sure we didn't play MSU that year.

Mentions UM as an example of a fine academic institution at around 15:20:

The Coliseum is as close to USC as Michigan Stadium is to Michigan. Possibly a little closer.

Now the Rose Bowl on the other hand...

Who? 

edit: Nevermind, just saw the Bio link in the OP

I assume time of possession is correlated with defensive performance though. Our defense doesn't let opposing offenses have the ball for very long.

Gotta expect this will be the most likely response here, but personally I still I think these things are fun to think through, so I appreciate OP thinking it out. 

11/09/2018 - 10:41am That's so great. 

So do we…

That's so great. 

So do we think he has calmed down a bit in the intervening years? A little older and calmer now?

Or was this just a huge game and he sounds more excited because we're hearing him and editing for the exciting parts?

Doesn't seem to me like the right thing to do. The people who donated money to Ace wanted Ace to have it, as opposed to (or in addition to) all of the millions of causes we can all give money to. 

11/04/2018 - 3:58pm Will he be gone or will he…

Gone, or head coach. 

11/04/2018 - 2:13pm True, but we also…

True, but we also appreciated him before this thread.

Honestly, it was good to see crime scene chalk outline guy up and about.

Am I the only one reading the OP as satire?

10/20/2018 - 10:57am Ugh.

Ugh.

The story about him locking Adam James in a closet was contradicted by several witnesses. It appears to have been made up by Adam James (Craig James’s son) who was spoiled and lazy and wanted to retaliate against Leach for his perceived mistreatment. Read up on it!

All the other teams that have given up more yards have also played many unranked opponents.

Man I could not place why that face looked so familiar, and then it hit me...

I think the title is missing that this benefits SafeHouse Center in A2 and Washtenaw County. 

SafeHouse Center provides support for those impacted by domestic violence or sexual assault and provides free and confidential services for any person victimized that lives or works in Washtenaw County. Their services include emergency shelter for those in danger of being hurt or killed, counseling, legal advocacy, and support groups.

For how much praise Don Brown gets, the dude has questionable 3rd down defense strategy.

Michigan had the #1 3rd down conversion percentage defense last year.

Nah. Everyone overreacts to everything. The most recent datapoint is always irrationally salient.

When things are good, they're never as good as they seem, and when things are bad, they are never as bad as they seem.

The jinx caused the PSU touchdown but it's now been cashed in and will have no effect on the game going forward. 

08/20/2018 - 9:11pm Well, jokes on them.

They…

Well, joke's on them.

They're going to lose their integrity AND the game against Michigan.

Yeah there doesn't appear to be a direct link to one's user profile. It's a strange oversight. 

You can't upvote/downvote an OP any more, but to vote on individual comments it's the little thumbs up thumbs down below it on the right side.

The recruit didn't use that word. It was just the OP's word in his summary. What the kid actually said was:

 

“It felt like Michigan thought they were superior and the big boss to Michigan State. They thought, ‘You have an offer from Michigan, so you should be going to Michigan since you have the offer.’ It was as if they didn’t need to recruit me or better their relationship with me. That was the first thing they did wrong.

Speaking of unnecessary space, this column of comments takes up like 20% of my screen.

I think comments could be wider and still have ad space on the sides.

Testing!

I like the collapsible threads, that really helps reading through a lot. 

06/02/2018 - 1:02pm interesting

Sources say that after several weeks at Minnesota, Viramontes was starting to show signs of a repetitive stress injury to his shoulder. "All that constant rowing," said a person close to Vicious Vic, "Day after day, rowing the boat, rowing the boat. It just finally got to him."

Can't really say I'm surprised.

04/08/2018 - 2:00am harbaugh

I agree, Harbaugh did not come off as a great motivator. 

However, I do think he came off as a good teacher. I think he is good at getting conceptual points across. The baby thing was wierd, but I understood what he meant about the importance of keeping the ball.

The scene where he was teaching the guy to snap the ball I think showed how good of a teacher he was in just getting across the fundamentals of how to do something. 

04/07/2018 - 2:47am later

Later in the series it becomes clear that Pep calls the passing plays while Drevno calls the running plays. It made me wonder if having the passing and running games totally split like that led to some kind of incoherence in the offense overall. 

04/06/2018 - 3:14am Yup

My thoughts through 4:

- This is awesome. 

- Rashan Gary is so sensitive. Love him and his mom. 

- Speight is irritating but its hard to pinpoint why

- Pep Hamilton is clearly calling the plays. I like how he talks to the players. It's not clear at all wtf Drevno is doing during the games. 

- Don motherfucking Brown!

- Winovich is a beast

- Loved Mo Hurst driving the Uber, but he needs to put his phone away while driving

- Also, Don motherfucking Brown!

 

03/09/2018 - 6:00pm I think

It's frowned upon to respond to the top comment solely for visibility and not because you are replying to the content in that post, because surely everyone thinks their post should be visible and then everyone would just respond to the top post. 

I personally think it's a huge weakness of this strange hierarchical posting tree that it's virtually impossible to read the newest posts. You either need totally linear posting, like a typical web forum, or a hierarchical tree with collapsible nodes that chance posiiton with upvoting like reddit. 

02/28/2018 - 11:05pm I bet

I'm guessing there will be at least 114981 people watching the game tomorrow. 

02/28/2018 - 10:55pm 3rd

3rd page of this thread appears to be glitched so I'm posting here. 

02/28/2018 - 10:53pm Making a post

In order to make a post!

10/28/2017 - 3:38pm Well

I wasn't sure which team to root for until I saw the OSU uniforms. 

09/17/2017 - 3:15am A certain game in October

Rutgers?

09/11/2017 - 11:21pm Oops

Really though this whole thing is a total misunderstanding. What I told Speight was that he needed to keel himself. Just thought he needed to be more even. 

09/11/2017 - 12:29am No

No, I was creating a word for the dislike or contempt for cities

09/11/2017 - 12:24am Hmmm

Is that comment about Ann Arbor misogyny or is it misocivy? (misopoly?)

09/09/2017 - 10:47pm Urban

I think Urban just put in his pizza order. 

09/04/2017 - 11:09pm I liked this

I liked this part: 

 

Based on this small sample size of just one game, I think more teams should replace 10 starters on defense. It’s like shaving certain parts of your body — the new defense will appear to come in thicker and fuller.

08/10/2017 - 6:53pm and

they will look to see what other indicia of sales he has

And probably also what other sativa sales he has.

08/04/2017 - 6:15pm Not legal

Not from a legal standpoint. But from a moral standpoint I learned that the harm caused to the victim may have been greater than I had imagined given the original description.
