Had the loss to ND happened later in the season I might agree but being as it was the first game on the road with a new QB in a new system I'm not sure the H2H may matter as much. Considering how many ranked teams UM will have played vs ND, if both teams win out, UM will have beaten 3 ranked opponents and ND only 2 (based on current rankings) and UM will have one more win (BTCCG) than ND which all may muddy the water even further.

I'd prefer he not even put that out in the universe. It was one bad read against and underwhelming foe by a defense that has been stellar all year long.

That was my reaction when I read this:

"Pacheco rushed for 142 yards on 16 carries, and in so doing he proved that anybody can run against this defense."

Yeah DPJ and Nico are almost 1A and 1B. DPJ is at 67% (30/447) and Nico is at 61% (26/429).

DPJ is catching everything thrown his way, not hard to see why Shea likes throwing to him more than Nico or Tarik. Plus Tarik may take a few games to get up to speed.

Klatt take on B1G hose job at the hands of the CFP confirmed. Guess the ACC needs to get the committee some knee pads. Brought to you by Frank Beamer?

In 65 years in the B1G Minnesota has only tied for 1st in the conference twice and the last time was 51 years ago. So Rutger is not alone in their basement dwelling.

 

 

11/08/2018 - 10:59am You know, I always felt like…

You know, I always felt like Rutgers' claim to be the birthplace of college football was misplaced. When Rutgers played Princeton on 11/06/1869 they were playing "mob football" under FA rules with 25 men per side and no throwing or carrying was allowed, only kicking. That game was nothing close to what we consider football today, it was more like FIFA.

So I did some digging and what I found out is that what we consider football today really started in 1880. That's the year Walter Camp's rule changes of a line of scrimmage, 11 players per side and a center to quarterback exchange were adopted at the Massasoit Convention. Those simple changes transformed the game from a soccer/rugby hybrid into what we recognize as American football today. Of course many more rule changes came after that year from Camp and others that helped to refine the game into what we recognize today but the process really all started there. 

From there I searched to see who played the first game in the year the new rule changes were implemented. My thought being, that first game using the new rules would truly be when American Football started. To my surprise it wasn't a game between Harvard, Yale or Princeton but Rutgers and Stevens Institute of Technology (The Ducks) on 10/09/1880 in New Brunswick, NJ. Rutgers won 5-1 on their way to a 2-2 season. 

So there you have it. Either way you want to look at it the first game did indeed happen at Rutgers University.

"We" are not on the team. "We" are fans. "We" are not required to only worry about Rutgers, et al. "We" can discuss playoff implications at any time without any ramifications to the teams win/loss record.

Why do you think they're pulling the scholarship? His tweet said he decided they have too many DE's on the roster. Sounds to me like he doesn't want to compete for a spot on the 2 deep.

There's also the whole "not knowing how your season is going to play out and how that will affect your recruiting so don't wait to see before building your class" thing.

11-1 regular season (hopefully the loss is not in Columbus). We win the B1G and make the CFP and win the semifinal but lose the championship.

The only thing raw stats do is tell you history they aren't good at predicting the future.

Not to mention they both pick against their model, so what does that say about their faith in it?

10/30/2018 - 12:19pm I think their model may be…

I think their model may be missing a factor (hate level) for rivalry games as well as the missing home field factor.

10/30/2018 - 12:16pm You did but you also…

You did but you also admitted that your model doesn't account for that. Home field is huge and I have a hard time putting much faith in any model that doesn't account for that.

10/30/2018 - 11:46am Their model doesn't even…

Their model doesn't even factor in home field advantage to their own admission.

10/30/2018 - 11:29am At about the 9:30 mark of…

At about the 9:30 mark of the linked video in the OP you say Don Brown's defense is so aggressive they have trouble bringing the blitz home against top 50 offenses. I paraphrased that as struggle and don't think that's a stretch from what you said.

Not sure what ranking system you're using but here's what I'm looking at:

UW: OFEI = #17, OS&P+ = #10 (held to 280 yards, 2 sacks-2 TFL's)

Nebraska: OFEI = #37, OS&P+ = #45 (held to 132 yards, 4 sacks-14 TFLs)

WMU: OFEI = #39, OS&P+ = #28 (held to 208 yard, 2 sacks-8 TFL's)

ND: OFEI = #25, OS&P+ = #34 (held to 307 yards, 3 sacks-7 TFL's) 

PSU: OFEI = #32, OS&P+ = 22 (held to ? yards, sacks-TFL's?)

 

Adrian Martinez's stats for the season look a lot like McSorley's:

AM: Passing: 136 comp 205 att 66.3% 1656 yds 8.1 avg 11 TD's 75 long 6 int 146.0 rat

       Rushing: 83/408 4.9 avg 53 long 4 TD's

TM: Passing: 122 comp 231 att 52.8% 1628 yds 7.0 avg 12 TD's 93 long 4 int 125.7 rat

       Rushing: 110/617 5.6 avg 51 long 9 TD's

10/30/2018 - 8:54am I agree. I appreciate their…

I agree. I appreciate their attempt at objectivity but I don't feel the facts support their theory that Michigan's D will struggle against the PSU offense. UM held MSU (#14 S&P+) to less than 100 yards of total offense and UW (#10) to 280 yards. PSU is ranked #22 and I think the Michigan D will impose their will on them.

 

Edit: MSU is ranked #14 in defensive S&P+ and #102 in offensive S&P+

Shea got credit for the fumble but it sure appeared to be Higdon coming in too tight at the mesh point.

We need to focus on one game at a time, namely Penn State right now.

I'm not suiting up to play PSU, are you? Our focus has no bearing on their success.

10/25/2018 - 9:20am I think the bad post…

I think the bad post Halloween record may have something to do with previous years under RR and BH that often ended up having their goals dashed by that point in the season. 

10/25/2018 - 9:12am Most teams can't hang with…

Most teams can't hang with Michigan for 15 minutes let alone 60 minutes. A few have had some success in the first quarter but after that Michigan always takes control and I think it's high time to give Ben Herbert props for what he's done from a strength and conditioning perspective to make the Wolverines clearly so much stronger than they have been in recent years.

There probably should be a separate appreciation thread for Ben. 

10/24/2018 - 8:12pm Yeah as if we don't have…

Yeah as if we don't have enough challenges already. Why can't we just dome A2??

10/24/2018 - 8:10pm Nice one, thanks.

Nice one, thanks.

10/24/2018 - 8:08pm I read his comments a little…

I read his comments a little differently. He said Michigan is #1 then he mentions the crazy weather (read as: I don't like cold) and then he mentions Clemson. So my take on that is that Michigan would be the hands down favorite if not for the cold which means the door is open for Clemson.

10/24/2018 - 8:02pm Is it just me or does it…

Is it just me or does it just sound weird hearing a tough football player complain about weather. 

10/24/2018 - 5:27pm Many, not me, were…

Many, not me, were speculating because of a lack of information. JMFH doesn't like to give any details on injuries and I get why and have no problem with it. Unfortunately it does leave many of us wondering and some of us worrying needlessly that the reason may be a negative. Just the nature of people I guess. 

Not sure what you meant when you said:

because of other players making decisions.

I don't think it works that way. I think he still has to sit out next year. This was talked quite a bit with other recent departures like McDoom.

Leave it to a Suckeye to choose a part of the story that, even if true, is immaterial. That MSU line was going to interfere with UM players no matter what side of the field they were on.

Patterson is scaring the shit out of me with his reluctance to throw the ball downfield or not seeing open receivers. This was the main problem for the offense.

Don't get me wrong I like Tru and the attitude he brings with his game but he doesn't see the field like Higdon does. Hopefully with time he can develop that.

This is what stood out for me as well. Why leave now? It's almost as if this was an emotional response to something. Like he was angry about some perceived mistreatment.
