    1.) 123/213 (57%), 1,445 yard, 14 TDs, 10 INTs. 128 QB Rating

    2.) 102/195 (52%), 1,440 yards, 14 TDs, 11 INTs. 127 QB Rating

    Crompton is #1 and Snead is #2. Can't argue with the stats. I'm not trying to say Crompton is getting drafted, but there's a possibility. And I guarantee that he gets picked up as a FA if he doesn't get picked. Look back at this thread in April.

    If those stats say anthing to me, it's that Snead has been worse than advertised, because MY GOD has Crompton been god awful more often than not. The WKU game definately skew those stats for Cromp by the way. Take out the first game for Cromp and see what you get.

    That's nice. Since Smokey is silly and is irrelevant to the team, tell me how exactly a set of wings on a helmet relate to the Wolverines? I don't know the exact story here, but weren't they developed in the '30s to help the QB spot receivers down-field AT PRINCETON?? Talk about silly and irrelevant to the team....also unoriginal. Way to copy an Ivy League team Michigan! :ha:

    At least the 'Power T' and Smokey are original designs and ideas.

    Oh, I completely agree that Crompton was terrible to start the season. Dig up the earlier UT threads..I'm in there bashing him with everyone else. But he's actually been fairly solid the past 3 or 4 games. You can attribute that to luck, terrible defenses, or maybe Kiffin has turned on his light. I don't know....but I can guarantee you that there are scouts out there that think Crompton has been hindered because he's had to learn 4 new offenses in 5 years. He was still a 5 star prospect and has solid physical tools. Someone is going to take a chance on him.

    If he finishes the season like he's playing now, which isn't out of the question, he'll end up with 22-23 TDs and 15 or so INTs. Not bad considering how horrible he was last year and the beginning of this year.

    Orange and White aren't the most popular colors in the world (especially when the Orange is Creamsicle Orange, so it doesn't surprise me your wife didn't much care for the uniforms. However, those are UT's colors and like em' or not (which none of us really care, but we're here to share with you our perspective) they are UT. Flashy uniforms don't really do a lot for us simple Tennessee folk, we just like our smash mouth SEC football. However, the new regime (Kiffin) might be breaking some headway with the black pants (possibly all black) and if he does then awesome, but again who cares.

    While I agree Michigan doesn't really need to make any new adjustments to their uniforms, the argument would probably go the exact same. They're simple, unchanged and possibly outdated, but they're TRADITION and they don't look half bad. Also, I believe Alabama, Penn. State, FSU, Texas and USC would give Michigan a run for there money for most recognizable uniforms of all time.

    Polls (Michigan, FSU, Texas ... it doesn't really matter)

    Look familiar? Princeton wore them first.

    Yeah, but Princetons were ugly. :) UT would probably be best suited by just doing modern piping and maybe a modern stripe eventually.

    If every player on the team gets the attitude that one loss ends your season then why play after the first loss?
    Maybe the the Titans as an example.

    It's a hell of a lot easier for championship hopes in college ball to diminish than it is in the NFL. College to pro margin for error is very disproportionate- 100+ FBS teams competing in 12 games for a championship is much tougher to accomplish than 32 of the same NFL teams playing for a SB in 16 game seasons. These days, the idea of championship teams losing in college is becoming less and less acceptable because the growing level of competition doesn't permit it. Period.

    What the Alabama player said wasn't a sign of a poor attitude- he's right! They can't lose at all if they want to play for a BCS title. If college teams lose a game, it had better happen early in the season while they still have a chance to climb up the polls again.

    Oh. And Michigan didn't 'copy' or steal the helmet from Princeton, just so you know. The guy that invented the helmet came from Princeton to Michigan...and brought his cool helmet design with him.
