Speaking of old Nebraska fans complaining about nothing, I've been looking for a place to dump this from Week 1, when the Cornhuskers ran for 498 yards in a 55-7 win:
My take....I am sorry but if the kids can't just whip their man at the LOS and score from 2-3 yards out with ISOs and Power.... no matter what the defense shows... that irks me...
RUN THE DANG BALL (IN A NON-SISSY FORMATION)!
To be fair, there are a few -11 and -12 helmet sticker posts as well.
Whoa there, let's not act like Conference USA doesn't exist.
The tricky thing is the different rating systems. AAA uses a five-diamond system, and a couple Columbus restaurants (M and The Refectory) are rated at four diamonds. Assuming a four-star rating from Forbes is essentially the same thing, Final Cut would be Columbus' third restaurant at the four-doohickey level.
I know that feeling, man. Consider this my restrained version of whining.
For the purposes of the preview, I'm including everyone that could forseeably fit in at the position. Because of that, I'm toeing the official line on Moore (that his career isn't over) and including Hubbard (because he converted once and might again). Still, you're right that their situations weren't clear, so I added clarification to their sections.
I'm not sure how Chris Fields ended up in the backups section since he was supposed to go under the 2013 departing players. Apparently I done goofed. Thanks for the correction.
Sure, but this is an article about 247's own ratings, not the composite.
There 32 five-star players in the class of 2015. For 2017, there are only three so far.
How good to see that in difficult times like this, our community unites with one voice. Blech.
From a Michigan perspective, you are correct that it's technically 2-11. You're also right that 2-10-1 makes a better parallel. Could you go along with Michigan fans believing it's 2 wins, 10 losses and an asterisk?
Thanks for the insightful reply. Something I left out because I don't want to get into it much: there are some party politics at play with Brandon in the board. Brandon is one party, and a couple of the critical board members are of the other. How much of it is political, and how much of it is dissatisfaction with Brandon? I don't know, but I bet it's more of the latter.
Something MGoBlog is big on that I to a lesser degree concur with is not caring about profit. The Big Ten schools have more athletic revenue than they know what to do with, and because they don't increase compensation for athletes they have nowhere else to put it than in buildings. There are prestige elements to having non-revenue sports that make sense for Michigan, whether the football team earns $80 million or $85 million.
Not in the works, but you can have the next best thing! The Land-Grant Brewing Company had a special Eleven Warriors flavor at last year's Gold Pants Social. Buy a ticket this year and who knows? Maybe they'll have it in stock!
This has not been a message of blatant shilling.
