It will mean deep and permanent BPONE 

11/19/2018 - 3:11pm Anyone who thinks this game…

Anyone who thinks this game is an easy victory is either a blind homer or doesn't know football. At minimum, OSU has equal talent, and IMO superior talent, to M, and they are playing at home with all the possible motivation there is. They are eminently beatable with a top effort from us, but it won't be anything like easy.

I get this but disagree. If Georgia narrowly beats Bama they deserve to be in and IMO, so does Bama. 

11/18/2018 - 11:31am Yes. I honestly don't give a…

Yes. I honestly don't give a crap about whether our not ESPN fudged the numbers. The fact is, and has been, that no matter what, UCF is worse than at minimum, the top 15 teams and probably more, no matter what they do. As an objective fact, they have nowhere near the talent level of any of the top 20 teams, they play in a conference that's even weaker than that, and there is no justification whatsoever for even having them within the top ten spots of the playoff rankings.

And they can save the we beat Auburn spin. An SEC team in a bowl with nothing to play for and no respect for their opponent can be beat, and it means nothing.

 The o-line didn't seem impressive to me today, Shea seemed pressured quite a lot

This was the biggest mystery to me: how could our pass rush be so largely ineffective against Indiana? I can explain most of the rest of our performance, but not that part

Haskins is very talented and will be a good pro IMO, but he's definitely not ready yet

Any idea why if he was the backup Peters came in before him?

IMO this is consistently true with Shea, he waits too long and doesn't trust himself or what he sees

Beans do not belong in chili ever

Sorry dude, you don't know what you're talking about. K thx

 

EDIT: sorry you're just wrong. Didn't mean to be snarky.

On the sample size of what, three runs?

Let's just hope he doesn't get a fifth star soon. 

11/07/2018 - 9:01am Yeah, he seemed the epitome…

Yeah, he seemed the epitome of a "try hard" good character kid, who was limited in talent. IIRC, he wasn't even the full time starter on his HS team as a senior

11/05/2018 - 12:17pm Milton is not and will not…

Milton is not and will not be ready to play against OSU if Shea gets injured. This isn't a Tua situation--Milton completed 49% of his passes as a HS senior. It's Peters or nothing if Shea goes down.

ESPN showed we'd be a 13 point dog to Bama on a neutral field

11/04/2018 - 10:18am There is no logical or…

There is no logical or rational reason why your original post should be disagreed with or criticized. It is simply objectively true that our offense- today - needs to be better to beat a Clemson or Alabama in the playoffs. That is obvious to any football watcher, or should be. We can be super happy about our team and its offense and still be objective, which you are being.

Please put Shea Patterson in bubble wrap until the OSU game

Great tribute Brian

11/01/2018 - 9:43am Yes, we should create a…

Yes, we should create a second tier because there will never be a justification for a non-power five team making a four team playoff. They have pitiful SOS's and objectively, not a matter of opinion but fact, less talent. Putting for example, an undefeated UCF over any power five team with one loss would be a travesty of justice and totally wrong. 

One caveat to the blanket statement above--if some non power five team played a non-conference schedule that included a couple top power five teams and they won, then they might have an argument.

10/31/2018 - 5:21pm I don't know about that. Don…

I don't know about that. Don't get me wrong--he deserves All-American status. But unless I'm wrong, haven't his TFL and sack stats fallen off from where they were? He once led the nation in TFL but he's way down that list now. AA selections often are heavily stat based.

There isn't a single person that I once liked that I will stop liking because I find out their politics are different from mine. Ever. I try not to the a dick that way

Yep, but it turns out he's pretty damn good on the defensive side, which of course was why the Lions hired him

Thanks. I didn't see that scene. Knowing the Browns as you do, was Haley a big part of the problem?

I think Mayfield is a future all star, though I haven;t seen many off their games to be sure

Why was he hated by his players? I know Hard Knocks is edited severely, but he seemed like a players coach on that show

Agree mostly, with the caveat that the up/down theory works very well in the NFL, less so in college

10/24/2018 - 8:34am Yes, he does an MSM version…

Yes, he does an MSM version of neck sharpies that Seth does every week. He's the only MSM guy I've seen that actually attempts to analyze pays and give insights

double post

10/23/2018 - 2:20pm I completely agree with this…

I completely agree with this. But I don't think my long history here shows that to be the case either (mistaken/bad positions and posts aside). And my point is the opposite of your first paragraph--on the contrary, I don't expect a championship, so finishing say, 11-2 this year will be a year I'm happy and pleased with. 

10/23/2018 - 2:17pm Oh I can't imagine and will…

Oh I can't imagine and will never be anything other than an M fan, M grad, etc. My point is that I'm not one of those "we should win Championships" or NC's or any of that. What I want for M is to be elite, consistently, (and it's arguable whether 9-3 meets that standard). That definition is different in my mind than "believing in championships." 

10/23/2018 - 12:38pm I agree except after Indy. I…

I agree except after Indy. I mean, expectations are looking up now, I like our program and am proud of our players. But I haven't really ever "believed" in the championship potential of our program, since I starting watching in the 90's. I was happily wrong in 1997, but apart from that we have been a 9-3, 8-4, occasional 10-2 program for 25 years (eliminating RR and Hoke). I hope I'm wrong again of course and in future. 

10/22/2018 - 8:07pm Did you see the guy swear at…

Did you see the guy swear at him first? WTF. You're new here, so I'll tell you something--this guy has delivered at least three pieces of inside info that was right, flat out. One was that Speight beat out JOK, a week before it was announced, and the Board erupted in hate and disbelief. So just calm down, and stop trying to debunk someone that adds value. Why does it make you mad? Let it go

10/22/2018 - 8:00pm This critique is nonsensical…

This critique is nonsensical dude. Everything you listed is the guy's opinion except the first, which WAS true, before it changed. So you don't like his opinions? Let's check yours. NM, not interested

Do you get that the value people saw in UMBig was the program info, right or wrong, that he delivered? If he delivered 3 things of inside value over a couple years (which he objectively did, as a fact) and got 10 things wrong, that's three contributions to the board of value.

Him 3, you 0. 

10/22/2018 - 7:11pm If we beat OSU and were 11-1…

If we beat OSU and were 11-1, I don't care what happens next, honestly. Make the playoff or not, win the bowl/playoff game or not, I'm good

10/22/2018 - 5:54pm Yep. I'm a minority on the…

Yep. I'm a minority on the board I'm sure, but if we never win a NC under Harbaugh but have consistent elite seasons and beat OSU/MSU often, then I do not care if we never win a NC

10/22/2018 - 5:50pm White was good in the NFL…

White was good in the NFL but yeah

10/22/2018 - 1:09pm What I don't understand is,…

What I don't understand is, why didn't he make the trip and stand on the sidelines? It was reported he stayed in AA. I get not playing, don't understand not going. 

10/22/2018 - 1:07pm Wow. this is great.

Wow. this is great.

You might have gotten mixed in with the real slappies at that time, who were saying Meyer was way overrated as a coach

Biggest offensive annoyances of the last few years for me (non-game results):

Hoke/Borges not being able to use Denard to advantage

Inability to do anything creative with Peppers on offense

Not using Evans as a receiver
