Anyone else take wine with their college football? I've got a few of Merlot Minis (.187mL) to finish off.

Definitely.  In my old age more than a couple beers gives me a heavy feeling.  I've been getting into various red blends lately.

I take wine with any occasion, but not from minis.

Maybe splits depending.

Was at a complimentary wine tasting at our local restaurant last night and they were pouring over 20 bottles, one of which was $300 retail, and several were over $100.  The cheapest was $45.

There is a lot of profit in the wine biz.

My early read on the Wolverines were they reminded me of the '02 Buckeyes, with a near impenetrable defense and an uphill battle on offense.  But the Bucks had Michael Jenkins and Maurice Clarett.  The Wolverines don't seem to have much in the way of playmakers.  
Well those '02 Bucks had a WAY better OL than this Michigan OL. And you hit the nail right on the head- they had an elite RB in Clarett- who was just a true Frosh at the time- and their leading WR was an upperclassmen that was 6'3 and a 1st round NFL draft pick in Jenkins. Michigan's best talents at WR are all underclass men. Their leading upperclassman WR is a 5'11" Grant Perry who will not sniff the NFL draft let alone be a 1st round pick like Jenkins.

Not to mention the QB. Craig Krenzel was a better QB than either Speight or O'Korn. Krenzel wasn't going to win you games with his arm- but he sure as hell wasn't going to try to lose you games like Speight and O'Korn seem happy to do.

Haven't got to participate in these very much this year.  I like Michigan -7.5 against Indiana today. WVU REALLY needs to be what looks like an improved Texas Tech team today.  Hope everyone's team wins today.

He has good hands & speed someone will find a spot for him

Wasn't a perfect throw, but Perry should've had that. That's why you want a 6'2 or 6'3 WR and not a 5'11" one. 

Ty Wheatley has a cast on his hand. Explains why he hasn't gotten as much run as he should've. 

DPJ would've had a big play on that screen pass if O'Korn didn't throw such a horrible pass. DPJ would've had a touchdown on that deep ball if O'Korn didn't over throw him.

WHY they continue run Chris Evans in the I-formation- beyond me. He's not a real RB. He's a hybrid player who is best in space. 

Kareem Walker sighting. Has a great run for 10 yards. So naturally they take him right out of the game. One run- but boy that eye test tells me he's the best talent they have at RB. Higdon is too small, Isaac has ball security issues and runs scared despite being 6'3, 230. Evans isn't a true RB- he's more of a hybrid player.

I swear this coaching staff is just stupid with how they use personnel.

He'll get undrafted or drafted in the 7th round if he's lucky. He's small and his speed is just average- he's probably 4.6. Probably not getting drafted at 5'11, 180, running 4.6.

The Backyard Brawl brothers both have a chance to knock off a ranked team.
