It didn't look that bad when the games were scheduled, but the three non-conference opponents for Michigan are all at unusual low points for their programs. Maybe it's best that way - it's a long season for college kids, and the playoff structure penalizes serious non-conference challenges.

With the Big Ten East so strong and the West so weak, the goal is only to get to Ohio State with a spot in the conference championship on the line. Get there and win the championship and you're in the playoff. Anything else, and you're not.

Hard to say if Michigan is overrated. It's a talented team and McCarthy might be a big upgrade at quarterback. They've done what a top five team should do against that competition.

I don't think I've ever seen a team have seven different quarterbacks complete passes in one game.

Man do I feel for Marcus Freeman. At least I'm very certain that somebody will scoop him up on staff pretty quickly. This ND team is a total disaster.

It's more than that. Miami people are awful. I've lived in South Florida, I hated it. UF and FSU may hate each other, but as people we share a lot of common bonds. North of Ocala is basically sweet tea/South Georgia. Miami is like the LA of the south.

Bummer, South Alabama tried to salt the game away on a 4th and 2, got sacked, and UCLA pretty much marched down the field for the GW FG with 2 seconds left

Cal vs ND is fun, 17-24

Cal is driving to tie it with 37 sec left.


EDIT: failed Hail Mary. Cal had a couple bounces/chances to pull it in though

I'm quite of the opinion that power 5 conference teams (assuming that's still a thing) should only play other power 5 teams.

BTW, the awful decision was Troy taking the safety, not the Hail Mary.

Aw, stop. Arkansas is a good team and I am jealous.

Iowa leads a terrible Nevada team 17-0 at half. It should be much worse, but alas, Iowa has very little offense.

But we have a real athletic freshman RB whos looks exciting.

True, but I don't think you prepare for winning games like that by playing games like this. Some patsies, sure. And yeah they probably weren't supposed to be this bad originally, but I think there's a lot to be said for having one decent non-conference opponent from a major conference. Just one. Not a row of them, but somebody that when you push, they don't fall over; they push back. Most of the time, if an early close loss takes you out of the playoff, you didn't deserve to be in the playoff to start off with.

I think there might .... might ... be two quality teams in the Big Ten this year. It's looking highly unlikely there are more than that.

We just talked about this. I think there's a solid chance Michigan is overrated, though the 'as always' bit is hilarious. Any given game, you never know, but there's a huge gulf between them being overrated, and them being overrated enough to make Iowa favorites against them.

The Harbaugh years have been overrated.

Iowa is the burr in Michigans saddle. We have the exact type of defense that always screws Michigan. It is a weird dynamic, but Iowa is UMs underrated nightmare.

SDIT: With the exception of the ass kicking we took last year in the Champ game

EDIT EDIT: I didnt say Iowa would be favored

Arkansas probably gonna pull this out, but even so, it has given me a chance to explain the whole Petrino thing to my 18 year old daughter who did this half hard laugh, half jaw drop when I finished the story with a picture of Petrino at the press conference.

All of a sudden, UF is down to USF. No points in the 2nd half, 11 minutes left.

Well, UF escapes thanks to a botched snap and then a dropped hold on the attempted trying FG.

We got lucky tonight. I won't complain if we dropped 2-3 spots. We did come back twice when we were behind double digits. There's been years when we would have folded.

A&M is doing decently with their QB change. Hogs have them next and hope we are better prepared.

Michigan and Iowa haven't played much in recent years, and the whole 'right kind of defense' thing doesn't make a whole lot of sense given how much Michigan has changed their offense in that time period. 2016 is basically the only game at all that matches up to that narrative. And that's their only win (in just three meetings) in the Harbaugh Era.

In 2013 they lost six of their last eight and had trouble scoring against lots of people, lost to Nebraska, needing lots of overtimes to beat Northwestern, etc. Go back further than that and you're a decade back, much different approach, and you have typically struggling Michigan teams not doing well against Iowa and also doing well in general. It's just as often been the defense that is the issue than a problem with scoring points, particularly if you're looking at the three Iowa wins from 09-11.

I can only say that it ain't going over great here in the batcave in Athens, GA.

We wondered if they might try an 80 yard field goal with 4 mins left to try to cut the lead to five.

ESPN article recapping the Hogs close escape. The below caught my eye, not sure how real it is.

I have fond memories of Petrino and his success at Arkansas so would love to give him (yet) another shot at a major program. But I'm not sure Louisville is the best place for him.

Arkansas is now 3-0 for a second season in a row and has critical SEC West games against Texas A&M and Alabama upcoming. Petrino, meanwhile, will likely be hired back at Louisville by 2025.

UW looked great last night. Came out and punched MSU from the start. Let up a little in the 4th quarter but I can't complain at all. DeBoer has brought a great change in culture and Penix is the real deal. We have always had talent, it is all coming together now.

Pretty much the entire AJC writing staff has been ready for a move for more than a year. Which is a little odd because, contrary to some markets/medias, that's not really an angle they take very often. If anything they usually err far to the other side of those issues with every team they cover.

I've gotten a hunch that he might be about as popular with them as Jim Donnan was.
