Doesn't Steve Deace write for The Right Stuff white supremacist/neo-fascist blog?  I thought I thought I read that at one point.  F that guy.

In the late 90s/early 2000s I recall a Wendys, Mark Pi, and maybe a chick fil a. Woody's was not a very popular spot as the south dorms are all freshman. Ohio Union was really starting to show it's age by that point. I do not recall any special activities happening there except when Al Gore spoke in 2000. I was there during quite a transition period. Karen Holbrook with the help of canpus partners shut down all the rowdy bars on South campus and put up all the new stuff. Unfortunately, it created quite a south campus void for bars for a while. That is also when Short North was a bit of no man's land. Not much for college kids until you got to the arena district.

Clemson has to get some bad luck eventually. They have been playing with house money for about 5 years. Time for them to revert back to the mean.
Comment 29 Dec 2019
On the surface when we lose to them, you can say it doesn't matter but it does. Clemson had to play only 1 half of football in almost every game this year...meanwhile, we are in slugfests the last 4 games with multiple guys getting hurt...which influences todays game.

I would never root for the Big 10. I root for the Big 10 minus Michigan. They can go 0 and whatever. Also, who cares what they think on Mgo. You play the best teams in the CFP and sometimes you lose. No shame in that. You know what is shameful? Michigan's record against OSU the last 20 years.

either way, 1 year of Haskins + 2 years of Fields > 2 years of Burrow
Comment 14 Dec 2019
Yeesh, never thought I'd hear the BIG 10 is weak from an ACC team but here we are. Wisconsin get beat by VA c'mon, that is a two score spread by Vegas. Whatever, we got stomped in 2016 and need to prove it.

I don't think it works out every year to be completely deserving teams but many years there are another 1-2 teams that should be given a chance.  Being realistic, nobody is going to go for a 6 team playoff.  It will be 4 or 8.  I think it is worth going 8 to allow those two deserving (sometimes) teams and a G5 school a chance at it.

Comment 12 Dec 2019

I like going to 8 as long as there are stipulations.  Like no more than 2 teams from one conference within the 8 total teams.  Or maybe you can have 3 teams from one conference but they all have to be within the top 8.  Something like that.

Best of the Group of 5 only if they are ranked in the top 15 or undefeated.

We would have literally just had the top 8 teams this year as Memphis is outside of the top 15 and not undefeated.

1.  LSU v. 8. Wisconsin

2. OSU v. 7. Baylor

3. Clemson v. 6. Oregon

4. Oklahoma v. 5. Georgia

I think teams get better over the year and while it is isn't really the case this year, sometimes a team drops a game early and ruins their season, even though they might be able to win it all by January.

Comment 11 Dec 2019

Nope. Nope. Nope.  I want them going into the off season with a ton of uncertainty just like the last one.  Ending the season with two losses, and losing to every decent team you played is a great look on Michigan.

Comment 09 Dec 2019

I think that whole game comes down to the line of scrimmage for our O and D.  If we can get pressure on Lawrence, keep him from scrambling, and force quick throws, we will keep them under 30.  Their receiving core is good but based on the size of those guys, it appears their threat is more downfield, rather than quick slants and crossing routes.  Get pressure and there is no time for an accurate throw.

If our O-line pushes around their D-Line, we will score 40+.
