http://www.espn.com/college-football/game?gameId=401032087  Clemson has an 87.1 live win probability according to ESPN.  When is the last time anyone had that on Alabama with an entire half of football yet to be played?

I hope for his sake Metellus is put in a position next season where he can succeed.

They did have to overcome "Clemsoning."

It would be unfortunate if first-team practice reps & attention were given to players who planned on making themselves unavailable for games.

4/5 stars, 4 deep, every position.

I am opposed to any scheme that does not require Southern teams to play Northern teams up north, outdoors, in the winter.

The South has humidity that is impossible to prepare for.  It is to their advantage that many of the important bowl games are played in the South, that Southern teams are accustomed to playing in it, and that their Northern opponents are not.  There's a lot more parity in the NFL and alot more history so to prove my point I just used NFL data for a few select matchups.

Miami leads Buffalo 35-19-1 in Miami but Buffalo is 28-26 against Miami in Buffalo.

Vikings are 4-3 against the Dolphins in Minnesota, and only 1-5 in Miami.  

Packers are 3-4 against the Dolphins in Green Bay and only 2-6 in Miami.

Atlanta is 11-6 vs. the Packers in Atlanta (6-3 before the dome) and 5-12 in Green Bay

Minnesota Vikings lead series 11-4-0 vs. Falcons in Minnesota but are only 8-7 in Atlanta (2-5 before the dome).

It even works when you pit the two cold stadium teams against each other.   Green Bay is 28-29 against Minnesota at Minnesota (many played in a dome) but 32-25-3 v. Minnesota at GB.

Moreover, we saw it again tonight, party people!  Miami was favored by 2.5 points v. Wisconsin at Yankee Stadium.  But it got "cold," Miami froze up, and Wisconsin won by thirtysomething.

Playing in the South is a decisive advantage for Southern teams.  We need to have more games, more bowl games, more playoff games, and perhaps even the NC game in outdoor stadiums, during the winter, up North.  Bring on Bama, in Ann Arbor, in January.  

12/27/2018 - 4:39pm We don't have snow plows or…

We don't have snow plows or salt trucks.  Nobody has snow tires on their car.  Most of the people who were born here have never driven on snow in their entire lives. 

Consequently if it even looks like it might snow, all the government offices and schools preemptively shut down  -- just like with a hurricane.  The newscasters make a huge deal about it -- just like with a hurricane.  People are conditioned to associate snow, ice, and cold weather with the breakdown of civil society -- just like a hurricane.

Those who defy the advice to stay indoors are basically told to prepare for certain death.

Everybody who was on the G-Tech team on January 3, 2018 already lived through the terror of snow in Atlanta.  In 2014 it was even worse -- thousands of students had to spend the night at school or on a school bus.  Two inches of snow shut down the entire city.

When the mercury dips below 40, all Southerners feel a heightened sense  of anxiety and some experience PTSD level terror -- and that is precisely why I want SEC/ACC teams to play B1G teams up North in December/January

I am concerned that if we can't complete long passes against the Rutgers then perhaps we won't be able to complete long passes against the Buckeyes.

Contemplate losing to OSU.  Still concerned about making CFP.  Incomprehensible.

 

If we lose to OSU the season is a failure, even if we win the national championship.

K.J. Hill's one-handed touchdown catch was the most spectacular thing I saw all day.  His endzone Tom-foolery was the funniest thing I saw all day.

A man opens his door and finds a snail on his front porch.  

He picks it up and throws it across the street.

The snail looks up and says, "What the fuck was *that* all about?"

"Michigan’s OL confirmed indicators of development pushing Nebraska round."

"As a substitute, the Wolverines’ entrance 5 pushed their first Large Ten opponent round with out a lot problem."

“We had been feeling good concerning the holes that we had been making, and the backs had been ending them,” stated beginning left guard Ben Bredeson. “We had been completely satisfied about that.

"No. 19 Michigan turned to its floor sport early."

"Jim Harbaugh and the teaching employees dialed up the exact same play Higdon broke his first lengthy play on — a zone-read to the left facet, this time for a 44-yard landing run."

"By the tip of the primary quarter, not solely had the Wolverines constructed a 20-Zero lead, however they did it on 131 yards dashing."

“It was unimaginable,” stated Higdon, who rushed a game-high 12 occasions for 136 yardsand a landing.

"Nebraska (0-3, 0-1 Large Ten)"

"So, what’s gone into the obvious enchancment? "

We had been in a position to transfer them round as a gaggle,” Bredeson stated. 

"Quarterback Shea Patterson performed a comparatively clear sport, finishing 15 of his 22 passes for 120 yards and a landing."

"I’ve stated it from the start, they’re enhancing,” Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh stated. "

"The 19th-ranked Wolverines have eclipsed scoring 45 factors in every of the final three video games, whereas dashing for a mixed 787 yards throughout that span."

Clearly I am not learning the offensive line, however I might say in my 5 years right here, that is most likely the very best I’ve ever seen,” defensive finish Chase Winovich stated. “That is most likely a daring assertion — I do not imply for it to return off as (one) — however that is most likely the very best I’ve ever seen Michigan look from a complete standpoint.

“Offense, protection, particular groups. It was only a nice feeling.”

"Jim Harbaugh and the teaching employees dialed up the exact same play Higdon broke his first lengthy play on — a zone-read to the left facet, this time for a 44-yard landing run."  In other words, play-calling.

With practice, the team is becoming more proficient.  "I’ve stated it from the start, they’re enhancing,” Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh stated.

05/27/2018 - 9:15pm QB play makes 2018 better

 2016 was better in some position groups and 2018 is better in some position groups.  The difference is qb.  In 2016 our humble prayer was that our qb would not lose the game for us.  In 2018 we have a qb who is so much better that we can reasonably hope that he actually wins some games for us.  Therefore overall QB play makes 2018 better.

12/30/2017 - 11:23pm It's cool how the quarterbacks keep throwing the ball near the

receivers and then the receivers catch it.  Obviously we have our way of doing things but in this case I think the Wisconsin model is probably better.

My son's middle school basketball assistant coach is a UNC alum.  He arranged to bus the middle school team five hours on a school day to the UNC-Wofford game.  When the game was over the middle school team and coaches got back on the bus and drove five hours home.

McQueary walked in on Sandusky raping a child and quietly walked away without making any effort to help the kid.  Now McQueary is going to walk away with $12M.  Felt like this should be mentioned in the context of today's news:  "Penn State coach Joe Paterno knew of earlier allegation against child rapist Sandusky: Report"

09/07/2017 - 8:26pm Traverse City tidbits

In 1990 Michigan was in the middle of a five year streak of winning the Big Ten conference (1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992) under Bo and then Mo.  Traverse City Senior High won the Class A state championship in football in 1978, 1985, and 1988 under Coach Ooley.  In 1990 there were four Traverse City kids on the Michigan roster:  Chris Bohn, Mark Burkholder, Mike Nadlicki, and Dave Weurfel.  

In 1989 I moved from a Chicago suburb to Traverse City for the second semester of my senior year, met some really great people, and learned how to do an inverted keg stand.  Great place.  Beautiful.  Some of the finest folks you will ever meet.    

Always glad to see Traverse City kids on the roster.  Bodes well for The Team.
