Top 100 on the only site that matters (247 Composite): TOSU 8, TTUN 1. We wouldn't even take the one they got - we have four WRs higher than him.
I think the question for next year is, will Josh move to guard to make room for Harry Miller at center? And how will he feel about that? Centers are generally more valued in the NFL than guards.
We have Archie's DNA in a petri dish at the Medical Center. So yeah, it's possible.
The Heisman is the stupidest major award in all of sports. It's supposed to be the best college football player in the country. In reality, it goes to the QB with the best stats of one of the four playoff teams. Ridiculous.
Because LSU gets a hell of a lot of credit for beating Texas by 7 in week 2, when Vegas has them losing to Oklahoma by 11 on a neutral site. I'm not at all sold on LSU. Georgia is the 2nd-best team in the SEC.
Let's not resurrection the spectres of 1998. After six games, we were ranked #1, outscored our opponents 232 to 55, and beaten everyone by 17 or more. No one saw Michigan State coming.
Bye weeks are always tough for us fans, but it comes at a good time for the team. After the Michigan State game and after the Wisconsin game seems just about perfect to me. Then the backstretch of five games (including the Big Ten title game).
We tightened our rotation for the MSU game, but I hope we can loosen it again for NW, Maryland and Rutgers, so the starters can stay fresh.
Man, I don't know if I can support a guy who doesn't eat ice cream.
Our DEs are deep, but the drop-off in production from Chase to everyone else is very obvious, and that is reflected in the number of snaps. We need Chase to be healthy and fresh the rest of the season! But the positioning of the two bye weeks should help with that.
You'd put him ahead of Olave?
Dobbins did make the first down. Forward progress.
I agree the PI call was bad, but that was a 1st-and-10 play, so it's not like we would have had to (immediately) kick a field goal.
Refs also granted Nebraska a first down in the third quarter that they shouldn't have, after looking at it a long time. Replay clearly showed the runner was a foot short of the yard marker he needed for the first down.
This stuff happens in every football game.
While I don't disagree in principle with allowing players to profit from their likeness, if some states implement this and some do not, it creates an uneven playing surface. Which in turn forces the NCAA to either set a nationwide policy, or just "excommunicate" schools in states that allow payment.
Kinda hard to see how all of this shakes out, but I just get the feeling that college football as we have known it will no longer exist in a couple of years.
I was under the impression there would be no math.
Agree. I wonder if the staff is working on moving Wint back to safety, for depth.
Watch Arnette on the first Werner play (the 4 yard gain). He tracks out of view as he follows a receiver, then re-appears at the end to seal the inside so that the RB has no cutback. That's impressive reading and closing speed. Werner made a slight error on the angle, and the RB got past him, but with Arnette there it was a 4 yard gain. Last year, this is the type of play that would have gone for 30.

I think it's good for the Big Ten long-term to have Nebraska regain their status as one of the great programs in CFB.
That SOS is really interesting, given that LSU is getting a lot of credit for their win over Texas. I doubt Minnesota could beat Georgia or LSU on a neutral field, but their ranking (or lack thereof) compared to SEC teams (Texas A&M anyone?) just illustrates once again the bias.
For awhile I was pissed that Clemson is getting so much credit for looking very pedestrian so far, when probably half a dozen teams would beat them on a neutral field. But then I realized that I want them in the CFP field. Makes our path easier.
He's a redshirt FRESHMAN. Chill.
Gill plays H and Williams is probably an X. But I agree that Gill and Harris are not advancing in their careers as their recruiting rankings would suggest they should be. We know it's not coaching, so there must be something else.
The WRs are pretty much the only thing Michigan can hang their hat on. I can't think of any other position group on their team that looks good.
Awesome analysis. Thank you.
One thing to note: if you freeze the Chase Young strip sack video (2nd quarter 2:14) at 11 seconds, you'll see why Chase is leading the nation in sacks. It's about one second into the play. Compare his position to Tyler Friday - Chase is already two yards into the backfield; Tyler is barely out of his croutch.
I was torn in that game, other than wanting both of them to lose. In my heart I was pulling for ND because I'm so damn tired of the SEC. But in retrospect, I saw elsewhere that ND has the 2nd highest likelihood of winning out, of all the top 15 or so teams (after Clemson of course), so I guess it was good they took an L now.
Better physical tools than Chase Young? I agree he came in the most raw but he may get to their level if he works hard.
