this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Tears and alcohol.
8-4 as an optimist
We will beat Nebraska and we will win at Iowa or at NW. No way we get within 20 points of OSU. That's my uninformed opinion.
as well. Unless Devin is really hurt. Then it could be 0-4 the rest of the way.
We'll beat Neb and NW, probably lose to Iowa and OSU.
Irrelevant. Predictions won't make any difference because no one every knows which offense will show up.
Right now this team is as scary as: 3rd Down and 13 with a schizophrenic OC in which 80% of the time he'll run tackle over and 20% of the time try to air it out using max protection with only 1 WR.
losses......... lots of them
Shit, booze, hangovers and apologies to whomever watches the game with me because my girlfriend tells me I need to apologize.
Probably not, that sucked!
Probably 2-2 or 3-1. I know it's STAEE but they are the #1 defense and we were on the road. It's probably not as bad as seems right now
Iowa and N'Western are road games. And we suck on the road (6-10 under Hoke). Given how we generally play against both of those teams, I'd count those as losses.
Just feels like 1-3 and 2-2 on the optimistic side. O line and RB pass blocking seems like the worst I can remember
Would be a success for this crap show.
2-2. Beat Nebraska and Northwestern, lose to Iowa and Ohio State.
"Alex, I'll take another crappy bowl game in Florida for a $1000, please"
Michigan will still:
I'm cool with that.
You forgot that they'll have good hockey and basketball teams.
None of those things has anything to do with results on the field. Hoke talks about "championships" and "toughness." I see neither.
Big picture doesn't matter we're talking about football here
But what does "Be Michigan" mean? We only are Michigan if we do Michigan. If we keep getting owned like this then "Being Michigan" will be a joke to everyone else. We had better suck it up right now. Hopefully we will.
on how bad DG ego and body have been bruised. The entire team was punished badly today. They were out manned to the point I believe their will has been broken.
They now know they cannot win the Big Ten Championship. If they split the remaining four games considering their coaching handicaps that would be a considerable achievement. BTW, if DG cannot play or is playing hurt they will lose all four.
We need a big time coach and soon.
There are not many coaches I would want instead. And I think very few, or none would leave their current jobs (in the NFL or NCAA).
Be careful what you wish for.
Harbaugh. Brady belongs in the mac
If you're interested, the latest Massy numbers pending update on Monday:
So, the prediction here would be a lean win, two games that could likely go either way, and a likely loss.
LOL....suck would be my prediction. A lot of well's will be said as well.
This team and program is a joke right now. 0 for November is certainly possible. We wont win on the road and OSU is going to smash us. So that leaves Neb....and with our propensity to give up big plays and not block anyone, not sure why anyone see's a win in this team left on the schedule.
6-6 is more than possible, but everyone will blame youth again.
You do see the staff hauling in top recruiting classes don't you. You do realize those don't pay off until at least 3 years down the road.
Just because you say youth isn't the reason doesn't make it so. Anyone who watches college football knows that teams this young are going to struggle.
Staee anin't that greaa
Itr's just because our o line is absolute garbage. We will beat Nebraska because their defense sucks and we will beat NW. Iowa and Ohio are going to be losses unless FUNK is replaced nowon the bus ride home in which case we'll beat either Iowa or OSU but not both.
Fucking enough with the Staee, enough with the they're not that good, just fucking stop already!
How bad is M then?
We'll lose to Ohio. I can see us losing to Iowa as well. We haven't performed well against competent defenses and have been inconsistent against poor teams, so who knows. I'd guess we go 2-2 over the next four games. This just isn't the year.
2-2. My wife hates Saturdays.
Actually, come to think of it, I'm starting to hate them myself!!
W vs NEB
W vs NW
L vs IOWA
L vs OSU
W vs whoever in bowl game
isn't beating the MAC #2 team in Detroit
Fairly symmetric distribution. 1 most likely. 0 a bit more likely than 2 I'm afraid. As follows:
Iowa on road, & they're improving? = Probably loss.
Ohio state: just hoping to keep it close to marginally not too too embarrassing.
NU on road & Nebraska at home? Likely get one of those, but dropping both more likely than winning both.
About what I'd expected at start of season given too much inexperience (& "players left after the great purges of the post Carr era") scattered in bad places: lines, secondary. Notre dame win momentarily upped my estimate, but then we learned: nope. ND is pretty bad too. So a win or two more from here is about as expected or better for this team. Maybe 1 loss worse (the horror in happy valley)
I'd be pleased with 2-2.
Sadly, you are right. I'm embarrased to admit our low standards, but 8-4 is starting to look like a fat chick at closing time.
of beating Iowa, Northwestern, Nebraska.
More than capable of losing all 4. Anything more than 1 win would feel fortunate.
7-5 if we are lucky
1-3 for this inept staff. However, 0-4 wouldn't surprise me. Somebody will have to explain to me, how this staff is any different that what we saw under RR. Oh wait... I know... RR wasn't Brandon's hire.
We're headed for a 7-5 season and no New Year's Day bowl. The formerly optimistic side of me is gasping for breath as it tries to convince the rational side of me that we'll go 2-2 down the stretch.
We can win the next three but when the Buckeyes come to town we will live the life of the smallest guy in the cell block............ As bad as we looked today, our upcoming competition doesn't look great either.
Pelini is probably done after this season. Northwestern looks to have mailed in their season. Not like Northwestern is a real away game anyways. Then lose to Iowa because M can't win on the road and lose to Ohio because of the season long issues M has had and Borges going for another 27 for 27 because he's so smart.
There will be a lot of whining, complaining, and over the top butthurt, regardless of whether we win or lose.
From stupidity? Of course.
From valid criticisms? I'm right there making them.
Your ideas about me have always been extremely misguided, because you can't see past your own nose.
Win vs. Nebraska, Nebraska is just not a good football team, and the home field advantage will help us get by.
Win vs. Northwestern, although I could easily see this being the game that Northwestern miraculously gets back on track and becomes an offensive juggernaut once again.
Loss vs. Iowa, Iowa's not that good but we can't beat anyone of any substance on the road.
Loss vs. OSU, this one could get extremely ugly. Urban won't hesitate for one second to hang 100 on us if he can.
8-4, Wild Wings Bowl vs. probably TCU or Texas Tech
