Not one screen
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Not one screen
indictment on AL BORGES people. Wake up. The coming years of this offense will feature a statue QB, big RBs, and require 10-15 plays to score. It is 2013, college football is not played this way anymore, like it or not.
we have no marbles.
Time to fire up the netflix with the wife, have a great night everyone!
I can't wait for all the postgame speeches and rhetoric that means fucking nothing.
We talk a better game than anyone, though.
What a fucking joke
We're the nerds. Don't take that from us too!
I thought sparty's time was supposed to be up and it was going to be big 2 and little whatever again.
It is.... in recruiting rankings. As long as we win those, we can always point to some imprecise point in the future where we'll be better. Every year, that point is moved back another year.
About losing recruits (peppers, etc)? I sure am, though I certainly have no info. Why play here if you could play at bama, LSU, or a program like that.
I am. The Big Ten is a shit conference and we haven't even been able to win one title in almost a fucking decade.
Taylor literally didn't even try to make the tackle. Wow....
Very poor effort by Taylor there
What's Hoke's road record now?
6-10 with bowl games.
This is the most disappointing game I've ever seen us play.
It's actually only the fourth most disappointing game we've played in this season alone. sparty is much better than Penn State, and in another dimension from Akron and UConn.
Eh. How many sacks this game?
and to be able to see that after the Penn state fiasco...
See Rodriguez era.
Michigan State slowly taking the game from us, taking charge in the third then dominating in the fourth quarter.
And the team's quit...no mas they say.
God please have them score two more times plzzzzzz... Now u can see the true colors of Joke and company
Total, complete and utter fucking joke.
Can we just refuse a bowl game this year?
that is...bad. I think a bunch of us here on the blog could beat that
that about sums up the day...fucking wrecked us
wipe that fucking blood off your face Lewan...you have earned nothing...you talk talk talk, but you don't back it up.
can't block five guys at once. I don't think he played great today, but when the rest of the line is such a shitshow one guy isn't going to make that big of a difference. Also the talking was going on from the start of the game on both sides.
Fewest rushing yards in the history of the program! Just like the RR era, we keep setting the wrong kinds of records.
Physicalness gets you that... all those platitudes, and we have only gotten worse for it.
the better team won...
There are records and there is performance.
After Akron and UConn, the chorus was "BUT WE'RE STILL UNDEFEATED!"
This team is what it is.
It is the team that barely beat Akron. It is the team that barely beat UConn.
Two of the absolutely worst teams in D1
It is the team that lost to Penn State, who had only 65 (or something) scholarships (nobody has asked if they had only 50, would we have won?).
And it is the team that was blown out by Michigan State. While having a bye week to prepare this abortion of a game plan.
And this is only the beginning of the most difficult part of the schedule. This team is in for a world of butt hurt, particularly at the hands of Ohio State.
This team is worse than last year's. And last year's was worse than the previous year's.
I am not encouraged by the trend. At all.
Shut the blog down for the week. Nothing good about this game at all
Dude shut up. Don't be an asshole. Have some respect.
Gardner got no help from his O-Line today. He spent most of the day running for his life. He can't do anything to execute a gameplan when he has zero time to do it.
He could've played better, but this loss is not on him.
Go drink some water asshole
Last time we'll be ranked for a while. Three years in, not a top 25 team.
There was actually good news to come out of this game. Now that we know we won't win our division, there is no chance for us to lose twice to osu in the same season! Yay!!
Dear Coach Hoke,
1. Eat something.
2. Wear a shirt.
3. Wear a Headset.
as much as I hate this game... I really think we need to stick it out with Hoke for the next few years... that is all...
I am willing to give some of the staff more time, but if that doesn't get somebody fired I don't know what will. I am looking squarely at Funk for obvious reasons, the youth excuse on the o-line only goes so far when you look as horrid as they do upfront.
This coaching staff has hit rock bottom. Almost like the RR days re-lived! If we have a chance to grab Les Miles at the end of this season or next season we should. Hoke may not be up to it. But if we cannot get a big name coach we should let Hoke go through 2016, see if he can turn it around?
RR got criticized for not knowing anything about defense. When will Hoke get criticized for not knowing anything about offense?
It shouldn't fly for this staff when it comes to how horrid the o-line is either. The o-line is literally as bad as the RR led defenses were, that is a sickening thought.
Have you noticed how the last two searches went? Our first two choices "bowed out", declined interest, said no in each case. Les Miles does not want the job. Harbough did not want the job. Schiano did not want the job. I forget who the guy was / guys were the overtures or "rumor-tures" were buzzing about before him. Miles again, but I think was another before RR. So before we fire another coach -- let's consider _realistically_ who may be his replacement and what his first fully matured full cohorts may do in the year or two to come. Personally, I think RR was done -- his fault or no, the forecast had little upside. I see more positive in the forecast for Hoke (& staff). Reasonable people may differ about that, but let's learn from past that we're probably not going to get that huge name guy you want & think is going to make everything perfect by showing up
There would be plenty of coaches that would take the job if we didnt care so fuckin much about being a "michigan man".. Dave Brandon is a fuckin joke too... Being a top tier program like uofm and paying sooo much for a game i expect fuckin excellence not garbage... Urban Meyer comes in and with the same players that went 6-6 the previous year he has managed to stay undefeated... Why? What do they have more?? Easy schedule? Bullshit tired of hearing about it.. They cheat?? Fuck it i rather cheat and enjoy watching some football than be goodie two shoes and SuCk biiig time like we have been..
