Support your team!
snarky comments that really are not all that snarky, but we like to pretend that they are so we can feel better about ourselves. That's SOOOO much fun.
Said the guy most likely to be snarkily contradictory.
I like this thread. Better this than all of the "Fire Borges, he is fat. Fire Hoke, he is fat. Fire Funk, he is not fat, but he sucks" threads.
Also, you know what I find silly? People who click on a thread, claim to not read it, but then post a comment. If you don't like the thread, don't click on it. If you accidentally click because the title "Support your team!" isn't obvious to you, then move on to another thread. Why the need to comment?
If you cant get up for this game I question your Fanhood! Rah rah bullshit?! Dude this is the game! it's anything goes. How many of John coopers teams where supposed to blow us out and left AA with a L? We're not a bad team, we have talented players and we can win this game. People get snarky when Michigan fans bring up their past but, if we as Michigan fans have learned anything, it's that anything is possible on Saturday. Sometimes it's bad #thehorror or Colorado's hail mary but sometimes it's glorious 2008 Capital one bowl, Tim biakabutuka running for 313 yards on the PREVIOUSLY unbeaten buckeyes or even the Game in 1969. Anything is possible especially this Saturday!
Why is it going to be a beating? Because you say so? because we haven't played great football up till now? The last time OSU came to Ann arbor they where a beaten up team. Their offense struggled all year but they played their best game VS. us and at least made it close. Our team is capable of playing great offense and great defense we've seen it at times this year. I exspect the best to be played this Saturday against OSU. #Goblue
Why do you expect the best to be played this saturday? Because you say so? Because OSU has looked so vulnerable?
Yea, crazier things have happened, but it would be pretty foolish to expect anything other than a comfortable OSU victory this weekend
Appy State had succumbed to that mentality.
Weren't they coming off a three peat that year or they went on to threepeat that year? They probably would have beaten a bunch of FBS teams that year -- we just got unlucky. Not to mention Lloyd teams could never defend against spread teams (Syracuse with McNabb, Oregon in 2003 or 2004, App. St., Oregon the following week).
My point is that the only people that thought Appy State would win that game were the coaches and players on Appy State. Had they behaved in a manner that was in accordance with everyones beliefs, they would have showed up, got demolished, collected their check, and went home. The fact that they won x number of national championships in IAA should not have mattered against the #1 or #2 team in the country.
No not because I say so, because history has shown us that we don't roll over at home and historically we play a good game VS. OSU. You have no passion or loyalty. You're welcome to your opinion but you cant call yourself a fan. I'm pulling your M card
But do you know the difference between those Michigan teams and seasons and this one? We had All-Americans at skill positions and future NFLers on the lines. Biakabutuka was a first round NFL pick. We don't have any of those running out of the tunnel Saturday. Oh, we also had Woodson on that 1995 team. And Amani Toomer. And Mercury Hayes.
In 1993 you had Wheatley and Todd Collins. I'm sorry, the difference in talent is wide. Those teams would smash this team by 20-30 points. These are kids and anything is possible, but those teams that you reference for your hope had a lot going for them heading into The Game.
Biakabutuka made his draft status off the OSU game. I don't argue that most top big ten teams from the 90ies would slaughter any team in the big ten now. I've Watched OSU this year several times and they do look vulnerable. Their defense is vulnerable and their offense stalls. Most of the early teams they played they blew them out in the first quarter and let them come back later.
I watched the first 7 games they played and they looked very beatbale
But Nebraska's and Northwestern's D were both extremely vulnerable and they held us to 13 and 9 points in regulation. Narduzzi has owned Borges and gave the rest of the conference the blueprint on how to shut down this offense. Yes, we scored some points last week but didn't have one long sustained drive that put points on the board.
If a close game allows people to keep their jobs I would rather lose big so I don't have to put up with another season of primarily unwatchable, predictable, boring football.
I'm going into a 28 day program after Saturday's game to try and dry out for before the bowl game...
Will the 28 day program be too long? What happens if the bowl game is December 27?
I said TRY and dry out...obviously I'll be checking out early to make the trip to The Texas Bowl if necessary.
many other MGOBLOGGERS with you. Many are a hot mess of sweary angry drunkenness...
the Wolverines. More than anything right now Bo's words are what glue the team together. When, and I believe when not if, this program turns the corner players will point to this season's lessons learned under this staff as they fought through adversity.
The rah rah shit is getting old, I love it, just hope it stays contained in a certain (limited) number of threads. I wish the mods would just pin a thread to the top for all of the rah rah stuff.
However, the Borges glum and new OC threads are a MILLION times worse. So if this is what it takes to keep those threads from taking over the board (and the appreciation threads)...I'll take it.
And the raw raw stuff is 100 time better than the ANGAR threads after Coach X doesn't committ some kind of Samuari suicide at the presser after a loss.
Go Blue. We have a lot of recruits and commits coming to this game. Time to support the kids. Time to support the seniors. It's our last chance to cheer for them this year at the Big House. Save all of the fire this coach or that coach until next week. We all count down the days for this game. It's finally here. Go Blue.
How about, as a compromise, no one makes any threads whatsoever unless they are giving us new information (like info from a presser, recruiting news, etc.) or a completely new and dfferent topic of discussion?
Because in all honestly., no one needs to know or cares about each person's individual rah rah thoughts or offensive co-ordinator thoughts or coaching thoughts. So please stop. None of you are special
You have completely missed the point. If you dont care about it then dont come here and post. It's not about one fan, one player or one coach. If the Big house is a sea of red full of boos do you think we have a chance. The fan base has to get up and cheer this team
Remember Appalachian State! Anything is possible! Any given Saturday!
But appy st was a legit top 25 team. I have little hope this sat but there is always a chance.
Go Blue. Beat Ohio!
It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine!!!!
The students or season ticket holders know who they are selling their tickets too. I already know one individual who bought student tickets and know a few others drooling over cheap tickets to the game Saturday that just came available.
buy them all! This is our house
Students sell them on a Michigan Facebook marketplace, in general. I'm not sure what to expect this year but I can't think of one time the enemy has had a significant contingent of fans in the SS. The rest of the stadium, however... well, we'll see.
We have become Miami Hurricane football. Nobody shows up unless the team is good. I personally will never miss a Michigan game if we're 0-12 or 12-0. Apparently, some are not even fan enough to go to the Michigan Ohio game.
I am pretty sure Michigan still pretty much sells out the stadium every week with ease.
It's during Thanksgiving weekend and the beginning of Hannukah. A lot of people have traveling to do.
Yeah that's a massive exaggeration. There is no comparing the situation at UM which, if it doesn't really sell out every game, at least it comes real close, with Miami, which plays in an empty shell of a stadium in front of zombies.
I love everything...and everyone. Fire nobody.
Come on bisb thread lock until next Monday we know you have the stones to do it.
I have been critical of the coaching and we will see how it all shakes out in the next year or so, but I will support The Team come Saturday, win or lose. Go Blue!
Get behind the friggin team or submit your AD resume.
They win this game, it's time to shut it.
Recall Frank Clark going unblocked into Braxton Miller last year?
Well, I would like to see that again, Twice. Once with Clark 2.0, and Jake Ryan going full horizontal on him.
And Kenny Demens isn't around to blow up anyone on 4th & 2, but lets see Desmond Morgan mind-morph into #44 Chris Borland. He punished Carlos Hyde on play after play when Wisky played the BuckNutz.
I would like to see Chesson blow thru the safeties and have 5 steps of green turf in front of him, whilst Gardner lands the rock step for step in his hip pocket.
I would like to see Funchess crackback block so hard he loses his mouthguard again.
I would like to see Green drag not One but Two defenseless backs down the field for an extended gain.
And whatever other magic swirls around the bowl at Stadium and Main.
Of the week
I like it.
but did you really dump the dope? because I did, once.
could you do an "I hate everything" post, part II. That was gold. Hysterical.
Tickets to cheaters than sell your season tickets. I whine but I've missed a handful of games over the past 30 years. Put up or shut up. The people in front or behind you will forever know you lack true Michigan character . Yah, make some money on stubhub .... I guess we will see you when we can all pump your ego up with wins since your life has no other sound basis
You weren't happy with the noise level of other people? Or you got yelled at? Do you swear? My section has people who cheer and yell things (not swearing stuff) and they are fine. I'm confused as to what happened to you that you stopped going.
Also, what other 115,000 in football can you compare it to? just wondering.
Apparently the last time he went was in the 80's and he forgot his keys.
You were "fortunate enough to sit in the student section..." ONCE?
How many games have you actually been to? And how did your Michigan fandom become so fanatical, that you simply can't stand going to the games at all, because of insufficient fanatacism all around you?
I don't understand any of this. I think you must be making it up. You could buy a ticket for almost any game, and if you put your mind to it, I'd imagine that you could find a way to get into the student section (you did it once, you say) and enjoy yourself in whatever fashion you deem fitting.
Or buy yourself some season tickets in Row 99. And stand up as much as you want and yell as much as you want. I'm really mystified by someone who says that they "stopped going to Michigan games" because the atmosphere was insufficiently rowdy. So you do what; stay at home and watch on tv?!?
I'll be there, supporting my team, and those kids who bust their ass week in and week out for their school, for each other, and for all of us. This season hasn't gone the way we've wanted it to, but there's a lot to play for on Saturday. And I'm not talking about our pride and dignity.
Okay, well maybe that. But this is for the seniors, this is to gain some momentum back in the rivalry, and most importantly, this is to ruin any chance OSU has of going to the national championship. Can you imagine the pure sense of euphoria we'd all feel, and more importantly, the players would feel, after pulling something like that off? To send those asswipes back to Columbus wondering what could've been? If that doesn't motivate this team, nothing ever will.
We may not win on Saturday, but I expect this team to play its best game. Hoke, for all his supposed flaws, knows what this game means. He knows how important it is, and he's not oblivious to OSU's recent dominance in this game. I bet he more than any of us wants to turn that around. He will have the team ready to go. I hope we come out ready to punch those P.O.S's in the throat, and leave no doubt in their minds that if they want to beat us, they're going to have to fucking earn that win.
Clark? What you did to Braxton Miller last year? Do it again. Hit him hard, hit him often. Drill his ass into the ground. Make him earn every single yard. JMFR, same goes for you, good sir.
As I said, we may not win on Saturday, but if we make them earn the right to walk out of Ann Arbor with a W, well, at this stage, I can live with that.
Fuck all y'all
I'm a '91 grad and was finally motivated to make my first post. Ive been back to AA at least once every year since I graduated and every year I not only value my degree more and more but also the amazing opportunity I had to go to such a phenomenal university. I'm headed to yost and the big house this weekend (and down to Duke a few days later for that matter) to support our team and to NOT take any shit off of any Buckeyes while I'm there! Inside I might be torn apart by what is going on with the team but I'm never going to give those misbegotten savages the satisfaction of seeing me boo my own team or acting sorry that I am a wolverine for life. Let's show them what we can do this weekend dammit!
Great first post! Keep up the good work.
Great post, support the fellas and send the seniors off on a high note.
is a great day to be a Michigan Wolverine. Go Blue!
I'll be there for sure. This game at the big house happens every other year...whether UM is good or bad or the odds are in our favor or against our team why not try to enjoy it? Sh*t if you only go when you know we'll win or when UM is good you may only enjoy a home game once every 6 years or so.
Pardon my language but many UM fans are spoiled little whiny assholes. Hell I live in the heart of columbus (in all fairness it's really a great city outside of osu) and it sucks being around these fans. I'm gladly going to go up there and go to the game and cheer like hell for UM.
I was there two years ago and the place was fucking rocking
Win lose or draw this is supposed to be a fun week! Get in the freaking spirit will ya!
go root for someone else!
but my money's on OSU to cover.
Beat Ohio, leave it on the field.
