    How many games will Michigan win this season?

    • Ethan Weeter

      9-10. They have 2 losses and might lose to OSU. They have a good shot to win their bowl game if everybody comes to play. Last year, that team kind of quit on Harbaugh in second half against OSU, not big-time, but they definitely quit a little against OSU.

      They will get beat by notre dame and ohio State. Them 2 teams are more talented and better coached.

    Urban Meyer is worried about the "purity" of college sports? BS! Of course since he'll be at USC, he'll get to deal with it first hand. Geez, this guy!

    I am an OSU fan and do not think the third string QB thing will win you a National Title again.

  • Ethan Weeter
    Ethan Weeter Month ago

    Probably because Alabama can win a national title without the best QB. OSU and Clemson are not wining without their primary QBs. Neither will most any other school.

    I hate that college football will likely become like a professional sport and NFL might even suffer for it. Or, NFL will have to increase salaries so much that teams will have to compensate or go broke. No way paying amateur players will probably work out for the better.

    I went to High School with Urban, he can talk about Michigan. It's a not a big deal.

    I lose respect for anyone who would bring Urban Meyer on as a guest. He should be banned from anything relating to college football.

    That’s what I did. I focused solely on baseball and I was good but by the end of my high school career I was so burned out I was just done playing. Of course I somewhat regret that now but at the time I would’ve rather just went to college to party and relax and do normal stuff and things ended up working out alright

    It’s easy to police the payment/convincing the player to go to class thing...you suspend him. Just like they would on any given day anyway. Same with a job..you miss work..you have consequences/loss of pay. ::

    2015, when OSU went 13-1, I recall that one loss (MSU) being one where Zeke complained that it was bc he didn't get enough touches...and he was correct.

      justinTlME no no no. Your assuming I made the comment “like people would be surprised.” I go to OSU. He’s a professor here. I tried to get in his class. I know, and have known for a while, that he still lives and works here. Ain’t no surprise going on here. And it isn’t a conflict of interest. He likes Ohio state, but he could say nice things about Ohio state just because it’s nice. And he knows that because of his experience here. Again, you’re making an assumption

    • justinTlME
      justinTlME Month ago

      Logan Brittain what you’re pointing out is what I said first. It’s an obvious conflict of interest issue. He can sway recruits etc while on Fox’s dime. It shouldn’t be allowed.

    • justinTlME

      Logan Brittain I’m just saying, your initial comment makes no sense. He’s still in the program, why wouldn’t he say “our”.

    Paying athletes is going to be a big mistake. You get a free education which is why I thought you use to go to College. We all know that’s not true anymore .They play College sports to show case there talent to get drafted.into the NFL. Sooner than later in most cases. The innocence and purity of what’s left of College sports will be gone. Sort of like a mini Me to the NFL. 😞

    It's clear that Urban does okay in interviews but he is exceptional doing his analysis segments for Fox where he can be the teacher. He excels and is very likable doing it.

    Each player gets an allowance. Done. You already go to school for free, no college athlete should ever make hundreds of thousands of dollars from playing a sport for a school. That’s what the NFL is for.

    Auburn is #2 huh ??? And you’re a friggen expert with your own show ??? Wait til Tua disappoints you all over again. Straight up I am an Ohio State Buckeye fanatic but I hope Jalen Hurts wins the Heisman and beats Tua badly in the Championship game. I’m no expert but I believe that is what’s going to happen.

    I love how Colin and Urban like Auburn. How'd that work out for ya.... They should have lost to Oregon, just finally caught up to them. I would have hoped Urban would have noticed they have offensive diffencencies. Defense is respectable for sure, but they can only play so many snaps.

    The NCAA and colleges has created this problem by making college sports a business. The following are just the recorded finances. If they were not making a sizable amount of money, this wouldn’t be an issue.

    Colin.....too funny asking Urban Meyer about the Quarterback Position. I love Ohio State. I went to OSU and graduated from OSU and my whole family roots for the Buckeyes....but I've never witnessed an FBS Coach who understands LESS about the QB-1 position than Urban Meyer.
    I'm so thankful (not for JTB's injury) but that Cardale Jones got to play the last 3 Games of the 2014 season. W/O that injury, Urban Meyer and OSU sit out the 2014 CFP's ! You had to have witnessed how much better our OFFENSE WAS with the QB Urban Meyer never wanted on the field, tearing things up, right ? It was a NIGHT-n-DAY difference. Meyer was CLUELESS !
    I'm so thankful (not for JTB's injury) but that Dwayne Haskins got into the 2017 game vs TTUN because Urban Meyer had accepted defeat. The COWARD had GIVEN UP. Almost an 8 million dollar salary and he quit working while on the job.
    I'm so thankful i get to see Joe Burrow play as a QB-1 for LSU....Joe sure looked great here, every Spring Game => so I suspected and expected as much. Joe was sitting on the bench right beside Dwayne Haskins when Urban Meyer and JTB-IV lost 31 - 0 to CLEMSON. Our receivers were WIDE OPEN. Re-watch just the 3rd quarter if you don't believe me.
    I loathe Nick Saban…..but at least he understood a Pass First QB (TUA) would give BAMA a chance....at another NATTY.
    OSU went home with the worst defeat in the CFP's and ZERO POINTS. You can't win if you don't score Colin !
    Two different legacies.....and it was always about the QB !

    They are already paying kids in Div 1. Look up true cost of attendance, and kids getting $1600 a month dorm allowances and renting a place for 8 hundred and using the rest for spending money, on top of a completely free education with full tutoring, complete meal plan, all you can eat Nike gear.

    How about let them just major in football and quit worrying about it they're going to class. They don't want to do they don't have to make it an option. Who are we fooling anyway none of us are even remotely concerned about how they perform in the classroom. Never discussed or looked at cared about so let's stop worrying about it and get on with being realistic

    Colin, why do you and the rest of the media always want to compare this QB to that QB or this LB to that LB or this RB to that RB or this DE to that DE. Are you guys so clueless in the sports you cover you can't make a generalization about an athlete without comparing him to another or y'all just that lazy you throw in a successful athletes name just to give your story substance. Because at the end of the day you're too lazy to write your own story? It's laughable..
