If I lived in Columbus I would agree.  I would also go to more games!  I definitely wouldn't want to do night games all the time.

In my situation I usually make it to 1 or 2 games in Columbus and 1 game (or bowl game) away.  For me it's like a huge celebration, not the normal Saturday as it would be if I lived in Columbus.

Is anyone else upset at the use of the word "projection" here?  

No.  I don't get upset over internet posts.

With that said I think Alabama fans would say the same things about LSU that we are saying about Michigan.

I used to agree with you, then I embraced the days events and now I'm a fan of night games.  For those of us who come from 300 miles away for the weekend they make for much better game day experiences.  I also disagree re atmosphere.  The biggest non-night game I can remember in the last few years was Miami.  That game had a good atmosphere but nothing like the night games imo.

I was going to write the same thing.  It's not like people stay for the 2nd half of a noon snoozer when we're up by 40.

I took a guy to a noon Purdue game a few years ago (his first game) and even I couldn't resist leaving.  It was something like 35-0 at half.  Putting that game at night at least gives us time to party before the game.

So how is that worse than the other 10 teams who had clearly worse seasons in the big 10?

In fairness their last one is 15 years after iu's.

I think the sample size is too small.  This class may end up being one of the best but if you use one of the boards which has been around longer you will find classes ranked as high.

for perspective on scout our current average is 4.14

In 2010 UF's top 20 were 6 5* and 14 4* with 6 3 stars to boot 3.93 average (Texas and usc had similar classes that year)

2007 UF and USC both had 10 5* players and had an average of 4.24 and 4.39

2006 USC 4.17

2005 USC 4.24

I don't think this class is unprecedented, but it's definitely in the upper echelon.  Those UF and USC teams won a bunch of games, so hopefully the pattern will hold.

We need to play the ball out of the back, we didn't even play good for us.  That game was brutal.  we have 320 million people, they have 42 million and totally outclassed us.  More kids is not the problem.  Is soccer is making changes, there's a lot to it, but in short there is more of an emphasis on touches per player, creativity, building from the back etc.

When did ESPN decide to distribute their own content?  I don't believe you can go direct.

Foxnews/Cable News and ESPN are two of the biggest reasons cable has some time left as I see it.  They are both live content providers you can't get directly.

Sling does nothing for me since it's $25 PER TV.  In my house that means $75 which is marginally less than cable and not worth switching for.

2008/2009 USC games.  We were "down" (relatively speaking) they were all revved up, I just didn't want to get blown out in the first game and wanted a win in the 2nd.  I got neither.
