Yes. Barring anything unforeseen that last stat will change. We will end up with probably 2-3 times the number of three stars than OSU.

Partial Thread jack--where is our class ranked now?

If Martinez plays I'd be very comfortable hypothetically taking Nebraska and the points at that spread

09/16/2018 - 5:54pm I was a disheartening win…

I was a disheartening win IMO. It showed all of the exact same weaknesses as last year, against an inferior opponent. The QB and WR's are better, no doubt. But the jury is out on the rest of the team, particularly the o-line.

the OP's title should change to "Running Backs--Wrong Opinion."

09/16/2018 - 8:49am I don't agree with the…

I don't agree with the conclusion of this thought, but it is objectively true that OSU is way more talented than us. In fact looking at the last 15 years that has usually been true. We should have been losing to them most years because the majority of the time the team with best talent wins. Sad for us but true.

I'm always struck in these transcripts how dumb the media questions are. 

09/15/2018 - 9:44pm I am sorry for this but that…

I am sorry for this but that was unimpressive. SMU are not a good team. Maybe I'm beaten down and too negative lately but apart from clearly better QB play I'm not confident heading into the part of the schedule where we play actual good teams

This sounds like the absolute right way to coach this to me. It increased my confidence in Warriner and upholds the notion that they want the young guys to take over

this issue isn't a matter of differing opinions. You are right and he is wrong. She is objectively bad

Almost unlistenable due to Beth Mowins. Ouch.

Absurd.

09/10/2018 - 1:36pm I don't know, I totally get…

I don't know, I totally get the point about Gary and his double teams. But for a guy so universally discussed as a top ten pick I don't think you can write off his comparatively unimpressive TFL/Sack stats to that. I'm fairly sure Clowney et. al. got constant double teams as well, with much better top line stats. I'm not denigrating him in any way, but you would think against lower teams he'd feast with huge numbers. Maybe he's a great player but more of a second round pick?

Temper excitement until State IMO no matter what happens 

09/03/2018 - 2:58pm Well, both he and Seth…

Well, both he and Seth stated that they felt strange about how confident they were about the game, and Brian in several places mentioned specifically that he felt very confident in Don Brown versus a spread team.

Hmm, I didn't notice anything different in the interview

It has zero to do with elite tackle prospects. It has to do with not bringing in good tackle prospects. Plenty of good teams have 3 star tackles playing a hell of a lot better than ours

08/28/2018 - 7:06am I respect this opinion, but…

I respect this opinion, but disagree. I still think even the majority of people in power at the majority of schools are in fact decent people doing generally, the right thing. I maintain that it was just the same in the 70's as it is now, at OSU and elsewhere. Though I do concede that the money now involved does tempt people far more than it did in the 70's and previously. I wish there was less money involved. 

08/27/2018 - 4:53pm Thanks, that well may be it,…

Thanks, that well may be it, in which case I'd move from saying I don't get it to I disagree. Maybe I'm naive, but IMO most people everywhere, on mgoblog, college football, business, are decent people. And the many many mistakes that get made are a function of decent people (and some bad ones) making mistakes. I think it's flat wrong and way too cynical to say that overall there is no care for the players. And yes, many people cover for abuses because their legacies are involved and that's flat wrong too. But that is still way, way in the minority. 

08/27/2018 - 3:17pm Agree mostly. It is in no…

Agree mostly. It is in no way whatsoever worse than it was 10 years ago, or 20. And you could make a pretty good argument that it is in fact better today, with player safety rules, publicity of bad actors, paying players more, treating them better with better facilities, etc.

08/27/2018 - 2:22pm I'm with you, but perhaps…

I'm with you, but perhaps for different reasons. I don't understand Brian's ennui or feeling depressed about Meyer or college football in general because it has ALWAYS been sketchy about rules and cheating, paying players under the table, employing doofus people to run things, etc. Bear Bryant was cheating, his famous quote to his coaches was "pay them whatever the going rate is, I don't want to know about it." And in my moral universe of one, I could give two shits about whether players get paid under the table, and in fact don't think there's even anything wrong with that. I realize the post was about more than paying, but the point stands. This has been happening for 70 years, deaths and all. When Brian loved and was excited for football, there was literally no difference then from now. I'm not being critical, just saying I don't get it--everyone can have their feels on their own terms. 

08/25/2018 - 9:27pm Yes you're right--we can't…

Yes you're right--we can't believe anything we read anywhere. Despite scouts saying they have at least 3 guys on the d-line worthy of 1st or 2nd round picks. Question-will our d-line be great? Because that's what ESPN and other sources say. I'll ignore it though and wait to hear what you have to say

08/25/2018 - 1:54pm I'll go out on a short limb…

I'll go out on a short limb and say no way Bama wins the NC again. The odds are very much with me on the ability of last year's champions to repeat. They'll be in playoff but lose to someone.

08/25/2018 - 1:32pm I can't see us…

I can't see us hypothetically beating Clemson under most circumstances--their defensive line is the best in college football (or 2nd best) and in case anyone has forgotten our offensive line aspiration this year is "to be average at pass blocking."

08/24/2018 - 11:54am Question for everyone on…

Question for everyone on this side (that includes me). One thing I wonder about: does everyone believe completely in Courtney's integrity for the allegations? When I read that her own Mother spoke up for Smith, and a couple of other revelations, it made me question a bit. 

08/20/2018 - 3:56pm Yep. Without the fortunate…

Yep. Without the fortunate Denarding blessing we received, Tate would have been a damn good college QB

08/20/2018 - 3:54pm Year 1 of Harbaugh-…

Year 1 of Harbaugh- impossible to start QB he recruited

Year 2 of Harbaugh- only option was true freshman 

Year 3 of Harbaugh- he started Peters, who wasn't yet good enough

Year 4 of Harbaugh- he starts Shea

Harbaugh "recruited" Ruddock and Patterson. And had no chance to start his recruit in 2 of 4 years. Therefore your post is garbage.

Taylor wasn't really even that good in HS, so not sure why he'd succeed here

He did an amazing job at M, no question. But as someone who is very familiar with Ford and what is happening there, I can tell you that there are many questions about him--particularly among Wall Street investors in Ford, which this article summarizes. It is not an unfair article.

Why? Why not post on the largest by far site with the most traffic by far to see your stuff?

it is in August, when we are starved for football

Yep. It has been the custom on the board since I've been here to do the headline and then a key quote or sentence from the article before the link.

I'm a tv snob, but TCL is getting some quite good reviews lately, especially on Cnet

Agree on Spieth since it's a major. He hasn't been the same golfer though to me since he blew that lead at the Masters.

Speaking of the PGA, this is my least favorite major by a long way. There really isn't anything special about it, it's like a regular tournament except all the top guys play. The Masters has Augusta, the US Open is different because it's usually a brutal test, and the British is links golf and well, British. The PGA has nothing unique about it.

Two people on eleven warriors claim to know that Urban is resigning

08/01/2018 - 1:12pm Correct IMO. If he knew and…

Correct IMO. If he knew and said nothing, I wouldn't fire him since he has no ability to fire Smith--Meyer was the boss. and I'd say that if he coached any school

08/01/2018 - 11:28am Yes I also blame the coaches

Yes I also blame the coaches

Honestly that's a fact free take. I've counted two political posts from Brian this year. And yes some threads get lots of politics, but that's always been the case since I've been here

07/26/2018 - 3:33pm Take those stats about the…

Take those stats about the explosion on growth of employment and salary at the Athletic department and apply them to the rest of Michigan and most colleges in the country, and you get a large part of the picture of why college costs are the way they are

Dantonio is already elite, I think that's pretty clear, especially after last year's rebound

07/21/2018 - 8:44am Agree with a lot but not…

Agree with a lot but not Shea--he's getting way too much hype for a guy that hasn't played in the offense, and who actually got outplayed by his replacement last year after his injury. Their offense is very QB friendly, so it reminds to be seen how Shea will do here. I do expect him to be much better than anyone here last year though, so that will be an improvement
