It's sad how much attention OBJ has drawn to himself over that night.  The focus should have been on LSU and its championship winning players...not an NFL player who doesn't know how to behave.

Chill out.  Nothing wrong with contributing humor into a thread.  From the upvotes, I can tell that 26 other people thought it was funny.

Just because someone doesn't have a definitive answer to your question (which, by the way, NO ONE has so far) doesn't make them a goon for being funny.  :)

Michigan is always #1.

After that, I'm definitely most intrigued for the Oregon game.  High profile OOC games are too rare these days.  This one is exciting on a few levels, but I'm highly conscious of the fact that it will likely be analyzed towards the end of the season as measure of the Pac 12 and Big 10's relative strength.

I can hear the TV promo now: *dramatic voice *

"Some rivalries form across a state line....this one forms over the western half of a state line..."

I agree with what others have said.  The transfer portal isn't the issue.  The way to keep college football from turning into a free agency frenzy is to enforce the 1-year sit-out rule except in transparent, objective, and rare exceptions.

Not anymore.  Too many debacles and controversies over what the call was.  So they make it extremely clear before the coin goes in the air.

Yes, I was satisfied.  It was a good year.  An excellent year.  We smashed all our other opponents and lost a close, tough semi-final matchup.

That said, I was still very disappointed with the loss.  Hopefully it provides a lot of motivation going into next year.

At first I thought you meant the CFP NCG end zones, which have sadly been all-black.  And I was going to agree!

But I now realize you meant in the Shoe.  I don't mind the scarlet end zones as they are.  But I wonder if replacing the white letters with gray would do the trick?

Comment 19 Dec 2019

As someone mentioned, this article is from 2016.  Anyone know if all the facilities and arrangements are the same this year?

That's an interesting point Joebobb.  Very unflattering company in that list for Michigan to be associated with.

But the fear about a rematch in the Leaders and Legends era was absolutely justified.  It didn't happen in those 3 years, but if we had stuck with that divisional alignment, Michigan would absolutely already have appeared in the Big Ten title game, probably many times.

97% based on the data you just linked to. (3,791 out of 3,910)  And 0.97 points seems a lot better on the long haul than 0.86 points.

  • Going for it more on 4th downs...absolutely
  • More situational 2 pt attempts...likely. (though 43% conversion rate x 2 points if successful means expected points per attempt is 0.86...much less than consistently getting the 1 point...am I missing something?)
  • Frequent onside kicks....doubt it.  The success ratio is so low, and the massive difference in starting field position makes this stupid in my book.  What was the math behind the constant onside kicks?
