That is all.
We should never have more than 10000 buckeye fans in Ann Arbor. It's pathetic that we have a ton of fairweather ffans who sell their tickets at the first sign of trouble.
My dad isn't selling his tickets. He's being a real man and bringing an excessive amount of beer to drink before the game. I suggest the same thing to everybody, whether you're going to the game or watching from home.
I love his attitude. Have fun. We will turn this shit show around one of these decades.....OH, and when we do....all of our enemies will have HELL TO PAY.
What about mediocrity from the fan base? I see Ohio gear every single damn day I leave my house and I live in North Carolina. I rarely if EVER see M gear. I get being frustrated with the coaches, but the players are the ones on the field today facing the odds. Support the damn team.
On a side note. I wore my M sweathshirt on BLACK Thursday and to my surprise I got one GO BLUE from some random person and saw a vehicle from Michigan with an M sticker. I did not see one single thing for the BUTTGUYS. Is it an omen? Hell yes it is!
Ehh just a function of geography. I see M stuff in NYC on a daily basis. OSU not so much
I live in Cbus and I get a few 'Go Blue's every time I leave the house in Michigan gear...which is esesntially every day that I havent been working in the last decade. There are plenty of football fans down here that dont care for the idiocy that surrounds ohio football.
When you don't have a job you can wear your Ohio gear and carry your brass spittoon everywhere you go. Other than gamedays I have to make do with my license plate surrounds.
I agree that not getting rid of Borges at the end of last year was probably the first major misstake that Hoke has made since his arrival. Borges' play calling is downright awful and the fact that even lay observers can predict Michigan's play based on alignment and spacing alone is sad.
It is not entirely coaching either. A lot of the Oline problems this year have including getting beat straight up one on one by dline and linebackers. Even Lawann has had games this year where he looked like he had never played football before--we might as well of not even had a LT against UConn--their DE and OLB had field days off their right side. If you know the basics and still get beat one on one that is needing to man up and probably an element of youth in our interior...not coaching.
Devin getting beat up every game and having no time, coupled with getting chewed by the staff about turnovers, has left him timid beyond measure--which is sad. Im not even sure how to fix this short of months of therapy and time to heal over the off season.
As a side note--I grew up in Grove City. Go Dawgs! Almost made the playoffs this year. Hopefully they can get back to form in the near future. Miss the 10 win seasons year after year...
Just enountered a Buckeye student roaming my fraternity house... not sure which "friend"/"brother" invited him... Can't wait to be at the Big House for a repeat of The1995 Game
You better hide all your coolers right away. He might be looking for a place to take a dump
Beat Ohio. Go Blue.
Borges, you are auditioning for your next job, for the love of God, end on a good note, beat Ohio State!
Do you currently go to IPFW?
No, I graduated from there after getting out of the Army. There are a lot of Michigan fans on that campus. Heck, one of my professors was a Michigan fan.
Fuck Ohio. Go blue. We all know anything can happen in rivalry games. Michigan players have stayed quit while Ohio players have talked crap. Ohio is looking ahead to the big Ten championship and national championship. Weirder thinks have happened. It would be so sweet to shut up all of the media, fans,and players that said Michigan had no chance. I'm one of those fans that stick beside the team no matter what. Once again... Go blue and beat that damn team down south
I always stick behind my team also, but that doesn't mean I cannot be realistic and believe M has no chance in this game.
Arkansas, who had not won a single SEC game, was a 26 point underdog to LSU and nearly won, @LSU. This is a rivalry game. It CAN be done.
To add to that, 27 point underdog USF lead UCF in the 4th, and 24 point underdog Oregon state lead Oregon in the 4th. They didn't win, but the games were much closer than estimated.
It's rivalry week. It's The Game. Anything can happen.
God you are fucking stupid. You didn't even spell your name right. Fuck off troll. Too bad we have the better end of the rivalry. Better record, better school, better .... everything.
I don't give a shit that the odds are against us, we have a legit shot at this. Do I think we will win, no, but ill be damned if im not there rooting on Michigan to beat those terrible buckeyes.
would've been a rough kick-off to the weekend if they had lost. If OSU can almost beat Michigan at Yost and Oregon State can nearly beat Oregon in Autzen, we can beat the Buckeyes at home today
Oh how I hate...Ohio State.
let's go blue!
if the defense is at full strength. We need James Ross and Desmond Morgan at 100%. Anyone knows if they are playing today?
And listening to Timmy go for 313. Let's do it again!
The BIG championship is gone. The home winning streak is gone. The 10 win season is gone. The entire world is against you, to include some of your own fan base. Your coach is under assault. This team has nothing left to lose, so why not win.
The scariest teams are the teams that have nothing to lose
If we win today I will hoist Borges high for all the world to admire and carry him out of the stadium on my shoulders victoriously!
let him back in afterwards?
there's only one thing left to do:
which is to realize that life is a game of inches;
that no matter what they take, they can't take our freedom;
that the force is with us, always;
and that somehow, today, we are going to shock the world.
will win. GO BLUE.
If Michigan wins this game, I'm going to start preparing for the apocalypse.
and oh yeah, FUCK OHIO! !!!!
Normally, I try to maintain a little detachment despite being a raging Michigan fan so I can effectively help to manage this board on a day-to-day basis. Today, however, I shall be doing this with my "Worst State Ever" shirt on, however, because my alma mater - in a few short hours - is about to play a team from that very state in its house. Go Blue!
Rivalry game or not, there's practically no way we can pull off a win. Stranger things have NOT happened. Nevertheless, I'll be in my seat cheering for my team until the Buckeyes suck the last bit of my soul from me. Go Blue.
Go Blue. Today is the day to play the game of your life. Win or lose today, I am still proud to be a Michigan fan living in enemy territory. I have waited an entire year for this game. I am wearing my "Worst state ever" shirt under all Maize and Blue. I am also the only one from my office who has to work today. The rest of them are ohio fans and got the day off. So F them and urban. Go Blue! Beat Ohio!
Stranger things have happened. Let's put it all together!
I'm tired of loathing, pity, and feeling sorry for myself. F:$k Ohio. Let's get a W
Just win for the seniors. Just win for the fans. Just win for good vs evil. Just win it for Bo.
I live in Ohio an I've had my Michigan flag flying from my flagpole all week. And all week I wore my Michigan gear everywhere I went and to work.
I may think the game will go badly but win or lose I'm a Wolverine dammit and very proud of it. Go Blue and beat Ohio!
Just got a new Michigan shirt and today, I'm wearing it. Just might be the thing to push us over. Go Blue!
Ohio delenda est.
Go Blue! Fuck the Bucks!
Fuck the buckeyes...Go Blue!
I have two (2) predictions:
1 - Most of the many Ohio fans in attendance (and there will be many) will embarass themselves with no self-awareness.
2 - We will prevail.
You can't have a legendary victory without being a legendarily large underdog.
this BlowGoo guy may be onto something
(and yes, I know, Go Blue!)
And I will throw in an entirely gratuitous "Go Blue!" at no extra charge.
...another valueless post to a valueless thread
with a win. Go Blue.
I do care who talk shit about my Michigan football team, especially a bitter rival who is coming into Our House. Pick your sorry broken egos and attitude up off the floor and get ourselves and players ready to kick some ass. Let's send those Ohio players back with some sore bones so they never forget THIS trip to AA
Anything can happen. Go Blue! Beat Ohio!!
you don't call them Ohio State. That right there is a victory today.
And groovy, man. Groovy.
The scariest teams are the teams that have nothing to lose. We aren't playing for a national championship or a big Ten championship. Hopefully this team comes out playing like they have nothing to lose and ends all National title hopes that Ohio has
I ain't drinking today. I only drink for M games when I know or have a feeling they will win.
This makes.... Sense?
I believe they are going to come out playing looser than we have seen in a while. I think we see the Notre Dame team that showed up, except with a better D. The longer we stay in the game, the more frustrated the Buckeyes become, thinking they should be blowing us out! Miller starts to panic a little and Meyer freaks out on him, showing his true colors! After the upset, we rush the field and the following week Hand flips his commitment, knowing all along he wanted to be at Michigan! This goes down as the key turning point in the Hoke era and we tell our grandchildren about this story for years!!
Here's to being optimistic and GO BLUE!!
From your lips to God's ears...let it be so.
What I've realized through this season, even though I knew it all along, is that I am a true Michigan fan. I have never once turned off the games no matter how bad the urge got. I've already been disgusted as far as I can go. So today I have no further to fall and be upset about. I think the players feel the same way. Do i think we'll win? Probably not. Do i think we can? You bet your ass. At the end of the day I am thankful to have these Michigan communities to come and discuss our team with. To sum it all up. Fuck you Ohio. Let's go ruin their season. Go Blue!!
You are a great fan and I feel the same! I never have and never will turn a game off early. I also have never been able to sleep the night before Ohio. Needless to say I was at meijer at 6am buying beer this morning
Fuck yes! Go Blue
I woke up today feeling a glimmer of hope for a monumental upset. I can't explain why.
Well, we might goan die, but as Sergeant Major Daniel Daly cried to his men as they charged the Germans at the Battle of Belleau Wood in 1918:
"Come on, you sons of bitches, do you want to live forever?!"
I'm At the game and have service! What a day folks
Play for pride boys!!!
Beat those buckeyes!!!!
On my way to the game now. It just doesn't feel like it should. Been too many long drives to A2 this season but nothing like this. Not optimistic about the game but hoping for a great day for the players......especially the seniors. Go Blue!!!
but hoping for the best. Mattison, blitz like a mad-man! Borges, open up the playbook and let Devin go out guns blazing!
Let em hang, boys! Beat Ohio!!
At the gym this morning and had a guy come up to me and say he had a dream one time that his Miami Hurricanes would beat Florida State 19-18 that year and it happened. Came up to me today and said he had a dream last night that Michigan beat Ohio. Lets hope he's right. Either way another thing to be thankful for. That piece of shit Urban Meyer doesn't coach our football team and represent our school. Have no respect for that guy whatsoever. Go Blue
With a shit covered stick!
GO BLUE! BEAT OHIO!
Fuck 'em. They've got 11, we've got 11, let's just go win the goddamned thing. We've got the talent to do it.
