Michigan shouldn't throw stones about upsets.
Don't forget Toledo!!
Why? Upsets happen to every team.
Shouldn't this thread be made after the NCAA tourney? What if the Big 10 doesn't win a 'ship or have any teams represented in the Final Four? Will you still brag about the regular season then? Will anyone give a sh*t?
I was just counting basketball and football. Hockey would count if we were in Canada.
Michigan has one in the basketball and a split title in football in the last 65 years.
I have given in to counting the '97 title as a whole one, so I will give you 2 (although Nebraksa would have spanked that tail).
What if they have 3 of the 4 teams?
Then they can brag, BUT, has that happened? Thread is dumb as fuk to make before the tourney before everything shakes out. Could backfire, real bad.
Hockey counts if we're talking about major sports. You can't force your southern views on the rest of us.
Nebraska would not have beaten us. Defense wins championships, you know that. We were first in the AP poll while the coaches gave Tom Osborne a parting gift.
I don't disagree but it's all in fun.
Wow...don't talk bad about Osbourne. He was the man.
Your basketball teams are only good at defense because the offenses suck.
I question all defensive stats from teams in the midwest lately. Playing bad offenses can make average defenses look decent.
i.e. Notre Dame, Michigan, and Michigan St.
Notre Dame was 1st in the AP poll as well. We saw what happened. The old college bowl coalition gave Michigan a parting gift, IMO by letting them hide behind the Rose Bowl and a game against Washington St (which you almost lost).
Here. I'll only make you watch the 1st half.
The Big XII wasn't exactly a juggernaut that year either.
The last three SEC teams Michigan has played have outscored them 126-56.
NCAA College Football Recap
I agree with what you said about defensive stats in the midwest, but 1997 does not fall into the "lately" category.. The Big Ten was actually decent back then.
I'd say the situation this year was a bit different. Nebraska and Michigan both went undefeated, while ND would have never been #1 in the polls without the help of TAMU, Baylor, and Stanford.
Washington St was not a bad team that year fwiw. Ryan Leaf obviously busted but he was a beast in college, they had a very high powered offense. It's going to be an endless debate over who would've won between Michigan and Nebraska that year, so no use in arguing this.
As if that's indicitive of how Michigan has fared against the SEC throughout history.. Please. Any win a school gained over us during the RichRod years is not impressive.
I think we will be saying the same about Hoke in 5 years. Maybe it's the school, not the coaches.
After Alabama's first drive, I was all , then during the rest of the game I was all
Hopefully we can meet again in a few years. Still don't see what this has to do with the SEC being a bad basketball conference this year and that their bitching about only 3 tournament spots is unjustified.
Lloyd seemed to do pretty well against the SEC
Do you say this stuff just to get on peoples nerves? I think you do. Haha, I've saw you say multiple times that you like Hoke and you think he's good.
I like you betteroff. You're a good poster.
SEC shouldn't complain or be unhappy. The conference was atrocious this season and didn't deserve more than 2-3 teams. Bama sure didn't belong because we don't have an offense and haven't since Grant took over.
