BamaMike, you're a rational poster, and I have always enjoyed reading your comments; even when they are not hassling the SEC.

Teams should get what they deserve in the rankings. I can't believe SC was #13 after that TA&M beating at home. Then to get beat by the Mizzou at home, SC should fall out of the top 25. Then to watch Georgia struggle to put away Tennessee...

Which doesn't make any sense, because OSU = mouse clicks. Also I'm confused because last week there were several headlines about Wisconsin's record breaking rushing yards. 

Comment 28 Sep 2014

Herman calls too many QB runs. I know it's part of the spread offense, but he needs to call more screens (tunnel or bubble) and a few more options. The shovel pass on the option would take the place of a lot of the runs. Barrett is not Braxton.

It was a panic situation so I'm not upset with him, but wouldn't intention grounding be better than a running sack? 10 yards plus loss of down didn't matter with less than 90 seconds to go.

While we are on this subject, how do you snap over the head and out stretched arms of a 6'6" QB? 

Comment 28 Sep 2014

I agree with everything you said, but sadly came to this conclusion games ago. His physical tools made him dominant in high school, but apparent lack of vision has held him back in college. 

Comment 23 Sep 2014

To me, this is more damning than anything else, because all the fans said Harbaugh lied, now they clamor for him:

"I've heard guys give excuses and said Jim Harbaugh lied about what Michigan steers you in, as far as where you go as a degree. That's the farthest thing from the truth, because I was accepted into Michigan in the engineering school, and they took me out of it and put me in LS&A. That's a fact. So before people talk about what Michigan will and won't do, they took away your dreams. I wanted to be an engineer. It just so happened that I graduated from the school of business. … Michigan has never talked about Michael Taylor being a Michigan business school graduate."

Just because you choose to do something that makes you contract an illness, does not make it any less of an illness.  People choose to stick needles in themselves.  They get medically addicted.  They have a medical illness.

Perhaps it is the terminology that is bothersome to you, but it is not a matter of choice(s).

California has way more talent for Stanford to choose from.  B1G territory does not yield enough talent (year in and year out) for Northwestern to be good enough to beat the rest of our league.

Comment 11 Sep 2014

SO much this ^^^!  People were on the internet complaining just as loud when these losses happened. 

I really enjoyed Tress as our coach, but everyone agreed Urban was a "modern upgrade".  Last time I checked, Urban lost at Florida a few times.

Wore standard road whites against Michigan State in the B1G Championship game.

Comment 10 Sep 2014

I'm also from Toledo, but have been living in Columbus from 1996.  It does have quite a few issues, and always had plenty of Michigan fans.

However every morning I drive by 3 _ichigan houses on my way to work. One has a block M mailbox, another has the block M flag, and another has Go Blue license plate frames and doormats.  Usually the flag comes down after their 3rd loss of the year, but the other 2 never change. 

Also Meijer (a _ichigan company) has several racks of their gear for sale right in front, along with the Buckeye gear.  Granted most of the people that buy this stuff are more Buckeye haters than _ichigan fans, but still.

Comment 10 Sep 2014

No DV, buy you even quoted it yourself... "of the century".  Last I checked, Archie was from a different century; one where none of the current players were born. Conceivably one where the current players' parents were not even born.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Despite all of the stuff mentioned in the article, we still could have won the game (or at least be in it for overtime) if a few more dropped passes were caught.

I have no idea why Tom Herman didn't call short stuff for JT.  Especially in the second half when you could see how the offensive line could not handle VT.  Just call three step drops or less, hit some slants and screens.  Watching the fourth quarter was brutal.  Every time they showed the blimp views of the wide receivers, everyone ran deep routes.  This just doesn't even make sense.
