The students were on break so it was relatively calm. They normally hate us.

My favorite part was watching Coach Chris Farley toss his jacket.

Virginia's defense, physical style, and all around play can handle Duke.

That match up and UM - MSU will be riviting.

My MGoD took me to the PSU game (which was packed) in the Maize Rage and I had a blast. Standing up the whole game, booing the refs, and screaming like a 20 year old was fun (although I needed to chug a Coke to rehydrate and sugar up). I dressed like a M lunatic and fit right in.

She probably went out to Ricks and I went home and slept...

Clemson won the game in the trenches where most games are won.

They also had no critical turnovers or penalties, which is related in part to the first point.

With what they have returning and who is coaching them, these two teams will be back in playoffs next year and the rest of the country will fight for two spots.

Enjoy this run and stop being worried about change.

Or just become an Alabama football and Duke basketball fan.

As I recall the few times Haskins was running for his life, he was a below average QB.  Not even sure he got his jersey dirty the whole season except for the Purdue game. 

The Lions need/want the QBs playing tonight .

Jordan Poole by the end of the year

I kid...maybe...don't underestimate anything he can do...his complete game including some damned good defense...seems to improve weekly.

Wayman Britt and Zack Novak were two great defenders by their senior years.

Agree on "we'll see". I'm more interested on who goes pro early and which coaches are leaving/coming in for both UM and OSU before I spend much time figuring out which potential newcomers will have an impact in the Big10.

None of the QBs compare favorably to the ones who will be playing Monday. I want to dislike Lawrence but that guy has it all, plays well under pocket pressure, and is still improving weekly as he is only 19. If he or Tua went to OSU, I'd be concerned.

01/03/2019 - 11:25pm Came back from the game…

Came back from the game impressed by the methodical, grinding, sometimes ugly winter break effort. We are miles ahead of last year

Playing two weeks against zone defenses and then matching up against a very good defensive man to man team and great defensive rebounding team was always going to be a challenge, especially early on.

Playing with out Livers, having several rim roll outs, and not really getting any 50/50 calls ( I'm being nice) and still the game outcome never felt in doubt due to our strong defense.

Poole is becoming one of my all time favorite players and did so many good things on the court. Love this team!

If you honestly don't know the answer to this question, you shouldn't post OPs.

01/02/2019 - 10:26am what a bunch of whiners!

what a bunch of whiners!

CFB has had mostly meaningless bowl games for decades.

The CFB playoff was designed to have the best teams play for the Championship, not to give anyone with a gripe a chance. If your team wants to play for all the marbles, don't lose to Purdue. 

Dynasties have existed in CFB going back to Yost and hasn't hurt the game's popularity. 

"Dynasty rivalries" are also popular in all sports ...and Clemson and Bama will not rule the roost for eternity. Miami, FSU, USC and Nebraska were going to ruin the game not that long ago because they "cheated and were unbeatable".

When attendance goes down at the power 5 conferences and TV viewship is down I'll buy some of these other points...

until then enjoy Beilein's team.

The length of games with excessive replays and commercials has pushed me to be more of a TV watcher (versus going to games) and channel flipper.

I want to see Alabama v Clemson.

Anybody who watches more than the Big10 saw that these are the two best and IMO entertaining teams this year.

So I see one of the Polgars is a coach at Webster and they spent $1,000,000 to be the Alabama of chess. Wow that is impressive!

I care because of Bob Ufer and had some of my best years and met some of the greatest people in A2. Definitely tribal.

Get pissed for a day after a bad loss in any sport but then move on. For football, the end of season flows right into basketball and hockey so it is easy. Beilein and his teams respresent everything a UM fan should want. The wins are very nice but it's just the humility, development of fundamentals and integrity that make me love his program from day one. Hutch is my second favorite UM coach for the same reasons.

Let see who they get at 8 first, and who they could have gotten at 5.

I am a Lion lifer at this what if game. check out http://www.tankathon.com/nfl

Mock picks....If we can get Ferrell at 8 I'd be happy. Ansah needs to go or cost a whole lot less.

Julian Love from ND would be a great second round pick.

Rashan Gary dropped a bit.  Too much of a gamble for a top 10 pick IMO.

Devin Bush going to the Bears would be a great late 1st round pick for them and the Lions would never score on that defense.

I HATE this organization. They can't do anything right... even losing.

I was very happy yesterday watching Alabama's Williams or  Clemson's Ferrell yesterday thinking how nice they would look in Honolulu Bluewith our top 5 draft pick.

Now we will probably trade down  now and take a punter from MSU.

The Florida and Georgia pipeline will continue

UM is developing many connections there and more will be coming in years to come.

A Rondale Moore type is a good comparison

Moore also is the opponent that gave OSU the most fits all season.

Smaller,shiftier, quicker, but probably not as fast in line 40..

He is a spread the field, one v one coverage problem and has the "it" factor like Mike Hart and Denard did using real quickness and creativity to break big plays.

A professional analysis from the DetNews earlier this fall..

“(Jackson) is the kind of explosive athlete who can score from anywhere on the field,” 247Sports’ Greg Biggins said. “He showed off his athleticism at The Opening testing off the charts with a 4.43-40, 3.85 shuttle and a 38 (inch) vertical jump.  And he is one of the most competitive players around. He should be a fan favorite because of his style of play and his big-play potential, and if he's used right in the offense, he'll be a major headache for opposing coordinators to deal with.”

12/19/2018 - 10:28am Watch out for Giles Jackson

Watch out for Giles Jackson

Michigan has not has a player like him and is necessary for today's elite college football and modern NFL. Tarik Cohen like.

Zach Charbonnet, another Cali kid, are going to be very nice surprises.

Duderstadt was a great Dean. I wish I had networked more but once I got into B school I checked out. Maybe I burned out?

He son is a sophomore and started out thinking he would be a ME but is now a ,Polysci and English major lol .... no, a CS major and possibly a second major in Math. He plays polo and swims for Caltech. Sort of like Northwestern back in our day. Last year they won their first SCIAC polo match in 16 years! The swim team is better and he just missed out on NCAA's last year. Still it is all about school first and getting a good internship now.

Have you seen the movie Quantum Hoops narrated by David Duchovny? Perhaps the greatest basketball coach ever at any level , Gregg Popovich, said his worst loss ever was to Caltech when he was at Pomona.

Chem E. during the Leach, Wangler, Smith era. Took the easier route afterwards and got a masters at Ross (before it was Ross). Went to the 83 Rose Bowl and thought I was in heaven. My son hasn't been in an indoor pool since he left Michigan and has played IM football in the Rose Bowl. Very proud and envious, but glad I don't have to do problem sets.

BTW your posts make me hungry.

Thanks for the recs. Will definitely try them on my next visit. My swim/w.polo son loves chicken and has a Michael Phelps diet said he's been to two of those fine establishments.

What did you study and how did you become a UM fan?

I know two (not kidding) kids who were delayed in getting into U of M because they didn't hit the final "send" button on their application unitl after the EA deadline. Now they have portals to check all this stuff including if they are accepted via EA. Guessing on the 21st this year there will be some really happy/depressed kids?
