I threw up in my mouth reading this
U-Conn Game Open Thread
a better uconn team though. lol
Ok that just hurt :(
Announcers calling UConn the worst team in the country. I remember when they said that about Akron last week. I hope we never play a team that is not the worst in the country.
Who all wants to commit mass suicide.. Hit me up
That's it. I've bit my tongue long enough. This team is horribly coached. We've gotten worse each game! Ever since Hoke won the Sugar Bowl with Rich Rod and Carr recruits it has been downhill. Brandon should have ponied up whatever Harbaugh wanted to get him here.
I love hoke but there is a scary amount of undeveloped talent
Remember when Wisconsin sucked last year, and then they got a new O-line coach, everyone pulled their heads out their asses and they put up 70 in the BTCG? Maybe we need to make like a badger and do that.
We're being scored on by a team that ranks 122nd out of 123 teams.
bloomers of sh*te
See Shane Morris now?
All I can say is wow...just wow.
I'm trying to not jump off the cliff like some people on this board, but dear god this is bad.
We are very very very very very very very bad.
VERY, I might add
Appropriate to ask if hoke can coach? This team is one thing, but even think back to last year. Hail Mary to beat nw, lucky to beat msu. Easily could have been a 6 loss year.
No Michigan coach has had a better start on his first three years in the time you've lived. Shut up.
Was turning around San Diego when he came here, too.
Bunch of losers. We are a terrible team in every way.
UConn getting penalties for taunting. They're in a position where they can do that. Yep.
Nice we have a DE covering a RB. Nice.
Why are they playing Wormley so much?
Will give this team a kick in the ass for the rest of the season
Agreed. Even The Horror ended in a good season.
Exactly. If being embarassed by Akron isn't a kick in the ass, nothing is. This team is just not good. Hurts to say.
Wow. I can not believe that I am watching this implosion happen.
Eat a bag of dicks
an ass hat
We look like 2008 rich rod team all over again. Disgrace.
I think we have enough time for another interception.
Hoke has a headset on!
Dominoes at that.
Just not really that good, unfortunately.
Young and inexperienced, turnovers, just bad offensive line play... depressing.
Dont forget that "its all about the kids". We dont want to hurt thier feelings. Fuck that. We need a prick again as coach like Bo
At a friend's house and want to die. He's an Illinois grad and having a good time
Just punch him
weak. They can't block, cover or rush the QB. This team looks like a RR team! They won't win more than 8 games this year. OSU will destroy this team. UConn and Akron are two of the 4 worst team in FBS and Michigan can't stop either one.
Goodbye top 25. MSU must be laughing right now.
We just look like a poorly coached and poorly prepared team. It hurts to say rhat
SOMEONE MAKE A GIF OF WORMLEY CHASING WITH HANDS UP BECAUSE THAT'S HOW THE WHOLE SEASON FEELS
Gardner looks downfield for one second and then takes off like a chicken with no head.
WE FUCKING SUCK
I'm upset, too, but we need to calm down. Some of you take this WAY TOO SERIOUSLY.
more seriously than the players on this team.
I think you are both right
What the hell Miller!?
Glad u gave 98 jersey before they won a big ten title yet?
Can we bring back the spread?
This team FUCKING SUCKS. There is no fucking leadership. Take away all of their fucking wings.
This is an awful football team. I can't believe how bad this team is.
Michigan's offensive line is even worse than last year, if that is possible...
Alabama is only up 16-7 on col st??
Nobody will if we lose to UConn.
A team psychologist? #headgames
Originally I wasn't going to drink during this game. That has now changed.
...Need to out at halftime for more.
We suck. That is all
Kalis a 5* never saw a Towsen lineman.
This team lost to Towson...fucking Towson.
This where we say we'll come out better after halftime?
Please dear God let this half be over.
joy I have watching this is that I am watching with two Ohio fans and all I can say is, "Hahahahahaha even if you're undefeated you still won't get in to the National Championship game because the B1G is horrible."
It's time to ask if Hoke can actually lead and coach the team. Can he prepare a team with his guys. Yes he can recruit and talk about Michiganforgodssake. But can he coach?
Can't and won't.
It's good that we are not over-reacting or anything - 1 1/2 bad games and we won the first game
Well. That about sums it up.
to bed now
Our interior OL is awful.
I'm thinking we're going to go .500 in the big ten this season. No way this team will beat Northwestern or Ohio at this rate.
You expected three underclassmen with zero combined starts, one of whom is a walk on to be world beaters?
Shut up. Just shut up. Indiana has three underclassmen on their o-line and they look fine. You have no idea what you're talking about.
No one is expecting world beaters. Just that we not have the worst OL in FBS, which all available evidence suggests we do.
This is just depressing. Getting run out of the building by f'ing UConn. We suck dick
Just ONCE I'd like to see SOME emotion on the sideline. I don't want to see a screamer but I want to see him in some faces to let them know he's not pleased. He looks clueless out there.
As a Georgia grad, I suffer from this same rage that mark richt is so "classy" that he "never gets mad" blah blah blah fucking BLAH. If you can't motivate or rein it in I times of fucking apocalypse, sometimes you have to get the fuck on the anger.
I am on the fucking anger
is a ST and not WR.
Hoke wearing a headset won't change out turnovers, oline or poor coverage.
So we're not good?
We are not. We thought we were, for blowing out a Central team that had exactly 2 players, both went down early. If you watch that game, never had O line control even in that one. Then Gardner plays perfectly except two plays (back peddle sack for 20 yd loss out of field goal position earlier before the brain fart) against an ND team that turns out to be bad. Squeaker against Akron & 3 turnovers into trailing 14-7 against another bad team. Yep, we're closer to the bad team than te team we thought we had for about 2.5 quarters against ND
14-7 UCONN at the half.
get fucking angry Hoke...even Fred lost his cool when Barney or Wilma pissed him off
14 total points in the last two first halves. ohio scored more that in their first three possessions today
OSU was playing a FAMU team with no speed, no athletes, that had absolutely no business being in Ohio Stadium except for a $900k payday.
When did we swap places with Staee's offense?
in my entire life. This team is lacking in every aspect of what makes a good team.
I think we seriously have to start quesitioning whether Hoke is the guy to take this team back to prominence.
3-9 looked better?
You're dumb and looking for attention.
It's bad but
no he isn't the offense has regressed every year since hoke has been here and so has the defense...
The D is not getting any better this year, and it will be the worst year out of his 3 years thus far..
are both RR guys, BTW. So are Lewan and Schofield. Everyone else is Hoke's.
I think Hoke is awesome, but these ae facts.
this has been terrible, but losing to Appy State and Toledo was worse.
I'm trying to stay positive. It's not easy right now.
If they have less than 4 losses this year it is a success.... No pass rush, no running game and Gardner is horrible. I feel like the Rich Rod era is back
Y'all are way too crazy about this. I live in Columbus and will get lots of crap and I'm not overreacting. Goodnight. Sad to see mgoblog turn into MLive.
Good news is were gonna win TWIS this week.. YEAH!!!!
I'v not seen too many teams can correct the TO problem within a season.
Please sit Gardner, he is crumbling under the pressure!
Is Funk going to be around next season? How long have he and Hoke been together?
(Dumb question retracted)
I still love Chris Wormley covering a RB out of the backfield. NO WAY THAT COULD GO WRONG GUYS
Til the pain goes away
We are going to get prison raped in the B1G. Michigan must hold the record for the amount of streaks that their opponents have broken on them. Seems like 5 times a game I have to hear about "Well this X shitty team hasn't been able to do such and such for 10 years but they just did it".
Notre Dame isn't Big 10 equivalent?
Yeaaaaa, what is their B1G equivalent? Indiana? Purdue?
Drake Harris, will you be ready to play next fall?
because we fucking major balls
It didn't work against Akron. It isn't working against UCON. Please try something different. Please show to the Michigan fans that you actually know football and know how to make adjustments at halftime.
If you don't know, don't post
amen...need to roll gardner out every play like Notre Dame game
11-2, and 8-5. Do I have to bring up the 3 years before his arrival? STFU!!!'n
I mean, we are playing competitively against Akron and UConn. Both of which were almost unanimous bottom 10 teams in the FBS. The panic is justified because we're going to get stomped by Big Ten teams at this rate
On the road?
I've never seen a Michigan team so poor on each line.
Our OL and DL performance the past game and half (and arguably all season) is worse than anything we put out there in 2008. I've watched every game since 1995, and this is worst OL and DL I've ever seen at Michigan.
Which is doubly frustrating because wasn't Hoke a DL coach? I was hopeful after Mattison hire and the way he turned around the defense but the lack of pass rush is still evident.
The interior OL is worse than last year's. Amazing. Team has regressed.
Playing at this level, there's not a winnable game left on the schedule. These past two games are by far the worst teams we're going to play all year. I'm not saying I predict we're gonna lose out, because I'd like to believe we'll eventually pull our heads out of our asses. But Minnesota would beat UConn by double digits. Indiana would have had an insurmountable lead on Akron by halftime. We are playing like a bad FCS team. How is this even possible?
Yup we're going 3-9
If you think we would beat ND if we played them right now the way Gardner is playing you are on crack
We suck in ALL FACETS of the game...we must have the worst coaches EVER
Actually, our kicking game is quite good, as is run defense ... pass defense though..
i'd rather watch miley cyrus twerk than watch this.
i'd rather watch twilight on loop for the next week than watch this.
i'd rather have vegeta beat goku early in dragonball z than watch this.
Once you're shaken, thats it. He has comeback before but this is going the total wrong direction. The common theme with all our qb picks? Our qb coach. Borges. Time to hire a dedicated guy.
I hope we can see the #2 guy, heard he can actually throw the football to the correct player.
Borges is a very serious problem. Borges may eventually cost Hoke his dream job.
This oline is a fucking crime
I'm sure I'll get negged for this, and I know I'm not thinking rationally right now, but still, I don't care.
Fire Darrell Funk. I don't care if the O-Line comes out and improves in the next half. This is a joke, and an embarrassment to Michigan Football when teams like Akron and UConn are completely thrashing your offense and looking like the damn Pittsburgh Steelers. These are the kinds of games that must make Jake Long, Steve Hutchinson and Jon Jansen vomit with rage.
If this is the type of product we're going to see on the field going forward, I really have to question Hoke's ability to coach. He's an amazing recruiter, no doubt, but the problems aren't going away. They're not even getting marginally better. They're getting worse.
Neg me all you want. Call me a shitty fan. I don't care. We're way too talented as a team to get pushed around by these fucking scrubs.
Is the root of the problem. For all the 4 stars we loaded up on only Kalis is playing.
Regardless, our O-Line should not be so bad as to get pushed around and thrashed by the likes of UConn and Akron. Notre Dame, MSU, OSU, I'd absolutely get getting pushed around by. But these are two of the worst teams in America we've played the past two weeks, and they're completely kicking our asses on the line.
At this point, it's a coaching problem. You can't sit there and tell me with a straight face that UConn is out-talenting us. Fire Darrell Funk. This is an embarrassment.
Even last year our o line sucked
Still another half to go. Really surprised with the game so far but it could get better. Maybe.
Absolutely no urgency or passion whatsoever. Just pathetic... Not sure if I've been this pissed about a half since RR
How about last week? That was the last time I was this upset about this team.
Sad thing is I don't know what we can do to win. Offense can't even complete a pass or get more than one yard running, defense is getting gashed left and right, special teams is a disaster etc. etc.
We just don't have the ability to do anything right. Uconn looks like the more talented team.
What the fuck do they practice all week???
What the fuck do they practice all week???
football the first two games. To simply say he sucks now is sophomoric. This is all about the confidence, and his is lacking. Will be very interested to see how he responds in the second half.
Get your head out of your ass and open your eyes mgogoggles!
and weenies? Nein, danke.

Adjustment 1. Bench Fitz. Try someone else. It can't possibly be worse.
Why is it fitz's fault that the online cannot block worth a damn? he has gotten every yard he could this game
Just bought tickets after ND to make my first ever trip to the Big House to see the Indiana game. I think I am selling them.
Make adjustments with the personnel
Suprised that Hoke said he wasn't sure Devin's confidence had been shaken cause he sure looks tentative throwing the ball to me.
I noticed that he was tentative even before the INTs. His first completion to Fitz was late...then he had another completion to Funchess that was late.
He hasn't been in the game all night.
Go to Morris and see if his head is there...because that's where it is with Devin. It's 100% mental.
...and if Kalis doesn't get better...move Schofield to RG and put Magnuson at RT.
Kalis isn't the problem, the center Miller just doesn't seem like he's strong enough to play at this level.
This blows. I can't even enjoy the MSU final drive Schadenfreude with this horror show on national TV.
We seem to play up (or in this case down) to the level of our opponent. This team is young and maybe hasn't been pushed to their talent level yet. The lines need much more experience against upper level talent to see how they should be playing.
I have officially lost my shit with this team. I knew this was gonna be a roller coaster ride this year, but this team doesn't get it. Not yet at least. The special teams and offense are absolutely terrible and inconsistent.
Devin better get his head out if his ass, and Al, I love you, but you suck ass right now. Fing run power and bowl these pansies off the field. No more zone stretch plays!!!!!!!!!!!'nnn
M was pushing them around at least a bit, stopping them quickly on d. Not now, we let em in, and their coaches adjusted. We didn't.
I've never seen a post with one thousand comments. At this rate it might be two thousand
I had the same thought...
Just drank some ipecac to make myself feel better. This first half was a shit show.
This is emarrasing
To me anyways. Apparently to this year's team it's business as usal.
Lewan probably is regretting coming back to Michigan. Akron and now the first half of this game, he is looking bad. The whole line looks bad. Hopefully something snaps them back, but dang they suck...
Considering the Michigan Man Lewan is, I doubt regret about his decision to return is what is on his mind - anger at our performance would be my guess
If Devin can't get his mojo back we're in big trouble.
I haven't been this pissed off in a long time. How the fuck does the leadership on this team let this happen?
I don't think they're not passionate. Too many over reactions regarding they're urgency. Someone needs to get fired though, and that's probably Mr. Funk. Get rid of the Funk.
have a seat.
"We want Akron"! Nice
Our entire team, to a man, is in a shell right now. I can't remember ever seeing a whole team seize up so badly. At least under RR is was a talent deficit. We have no composure--even compared to a high school team.
As soon as things started to go wrong, everyone seized up like they were afraid of making another mistake. We're weak mentally
Lack of leadership..there, I said it before Spielman does. Unfortunately it's true.
last week and got tore up. Seniors need to make plays
Soooo I wonder if Hoke would still play Devin in front of Johnny Football
I'm wondering why Hoke is still playing him in front of Shane Morris.
Behind this line they'd both be getting killed.
Save me Mike Hart. Save me Robo Henne
...Hoke's slow decline to Charlie Weis status.
that some of the people preparing his gibbet will be the same noodles who slathered him with hot, wet love when he was winning.
Right now and wanna drink hard liquor with me?
Not trying to visit Blivia but I think I speak for everyone when I say you should make like a tree and fuck off.
The Over/under on Gardner interceptions is 20.
Terrible just terrible.
That's an easy choice. Over all day, every day.
He's certainly on pace for 20. It's a joke.
We need to call more plays that are quick 1-2 read type plays.
Take the thinking out of the game for him...just snap, 1 read, 2 read, run...no 3rd or 4th option. No 4 receiver progression.
Could not agree more.
Is there any validity to throwing a different ruining back out there?
Our line is awful. What's wrong with Devin? He looks like a freshman that's never played before.
...they were in trouble. I didn't see enough talent I be more than mid-bad-Big10, esp once Ryan went down. Esp worried re: no middle of O line. Looked exactly like that in opening minutes of CMU game & I said so. Shouted down here then, & rightly so as put them away completely. Then looked so good against ND, I re calibrated. Looks like ND is bad, then Akron, now this: looks like I was closer o right the first time
You are so smart
It's hard to run the ball when the defense doesn't respect the pass. Devin is in an epic funk right now. We desperately need to go to the bye week.
Glad to see that Sunday practice helped out...wtf
And i think he is horrible
Hoke's honeymoon = over
Curious to see if his attitude changes a little now that he's no longer untouchable.
...5 in bottom ninth to make it 6-5. Could they?
Some people in this board are a disgrace to our fanbase. I can't believe people who root for the same team I do have the nerve to pile on the kids who play for Michigan and call for the coaches' heads.
Hoke has brought more success to this program than we've seen in over a decade and the players are young and still have a lot to learn. Recruits and players read the boards. If you're not a Michigan man when you get in front of your keyboard at least try to preted that you're one.
Criticism comes with the territory.
While I normally agree with points like this, the way this team has been playing since the end of the ND game is appalling.
You take the good with the bad, but expect praise and scorn when deserved.
That the last two threads got deleted faster than we score a TD lol
is quick on the trigger. Maybe they can help Devin.
But if I recall, football outsiders predicted we'd lose this game.
I'm expecting the team to step it up in the 2nd half.
I thought the defense was fine but were on the field too much in the second quarter. Gardner didn't complete a pass in the second quarter. Gardner drops back and has less than a second to make a decision. This is ugly.. And the offense is 100% the problem
And when he has a throw he misses
Turn in #98
Run the read option
Michigan's entire problem is the O-line. Can't blame Devin when he has so little time to throw and no running game at all.
Michigans entire problem is coaching. Mostly on the offensive side of the ball.
Michigan has lots of problems, but the OL is the worst of them. I honestly think we lose this game if there is no change on the OL at half time.
The interior line are all underclassmen and have zero combined starts. One of the starters is a walk on who's out there trying his damn hardest. We knew it might be a problem and hoped that it wouldn't be worse than last year. It obviously is. Some people seem unable to accept/comprehend that fact and you can't really blame the coaches for it. They're certainly trying to fix the problem(look at OL recruiting the last two classes) but it will take a few years. What we see is what we get.
Better than our starter?
There will be snowflakes...
Play Morris, Green, change the OL. This product is crapola.
Right now. He's gone.
He is evidently bad at his job. And I doubt Mallory too.
Wtf we don't have pussies playing on the line
When he has his own upperclassmen recruits out there playing and there doesn't seem to be an improvement on line play.
Maybe sitting the starters for series will wake them up?
Hoke won't do it. He refuses to adjust
And michigan has had opportunities for turnovers and can't make the play. That makes the difference in the game right now.
I want to punch and choke someone out now
We should start a fight club this season. We all have lots of rage going during these games.
2600 posts on this thread before game is done?
I say over
We're definitely not this bad, but I've never seen a team so out of sync before. It's embarrassing.
We get the ball to start the second half - to say that the drive is critical is a huge understatement
Good news is, a couple weeks ago it looked like we'd play ohio twice. Now it would appear we will only have to lose to them once. I mean, it'll still be like the 48th time we've lost to them in the last 50 games, if my math is correct. But at least it won't happen again the following week.
Sit Devin's ass for series
Are you ready? Let's Go!
Al Borges needs to go. He runs a great clever play occasionally but his typical game plan is pure garbage.
try being a michigan fan down in alabama...especially when they're playing peewee league ball like this. i've had to resort to watching michigan games solo in the comfort of my own home! and this season isn't helping!
I'm watching on espn 3 instead of the local bar. I would be getting in a fight for sure
Confidence guys. LETS GO BLUE
NIck Sheridan have any eligibility left? At least he played his damn heart out.
borges better bring out his best RR impersonation this second half.
At least Devin's only on pace for 24 int's this year:)
Who was Glasglow blocking there? He was 30 yards downfield blocking air.
We are not good. Need to come to terms with that.
Take him out. Sit him immediately.
This is ready to play now? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!!!! PULL HIS MOTHER FUCKING ASS RIGHT NOW
holy hell. get Gardner out
I know I posted this last week, but I quit sports.
Everyone to check out the Tigers game.
i thought the game was over when hawk gave chris sale player of the game on local chicago tv.
How far down do we have to be till we get Gardner out of there
2012 Notre Dame
They deserve to lose.
entire Offense last year.Gardner is awful.
The oline got fucking owned there. Fucking killed
I am not a fan of pulling a QB every time he makes a mistake, but at some point a guy just needs some time to get his head straight. Why worry that Morris is going to do poorly? He literally can't be worse. We can't move the ball, and Gardner is turning it over every other play. What's the worst that can happen?
Bad play call.. Bad result. But still, Devin needs to sit.
is gardner on the take?
That is all.
This is a disaster
I'd like to see morris at this point
Next, we have a punt blocked and returned for a TD.
This may be the worst O-line I've ever seen at Michigan.
Game. Set. Match. Goodnight all.
Ok great the nightmare is oficially on. Time to turn the TV off before I throw my remote through it.
Lewan with the hold. Of course.
I don't even know what to say
Why is this team not prepared to play for the second straight week? This is truly awful. Brady needs to tighten up big time. Second straight embarassing performance. Lewan has played awful as well. He is our best player.....
He. Cannot. Block.
We are getting owned
Something has gone wrong
IT MIGHT HELP TO BLOCK, OL
WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON
2008 OFFENSE ALL OVER
I'm begging a coach to do Something. Bench Somebody! Make a fucking change
Put in the fucking 2nd team. They cannot be worse.
What an embarrassing display of football.
This is a fucking joke
is not pooping gold.
is going to be long and cold if this keeps up....
Gardner is a scared little boy out there.
That play would have worked like 3 years ago, seriously they knew that was coming sometime this game.
Time for Shane!
So with an O-line that is getting pushed back on nearly every play, you want to put a quarterback in who isn't mobile? That would go well...
Chesson is the only one that wants to play football on this damn team
convert him to safety. he's not afraid to hit.
We're going to have to throw the ball downfield. The little horizontal stuff isn't going to be there.
i fucking hate this team
Dude, are we going to wake up or let UConn tee off on us?
You're a fucking idiot!
To be featured in "This Week in Schadenfreude"
A defensive score looks like our best bet
We need three pick 6's to win.
Turning the game off. Can't watch this abortion. And we thought Rich Rod was bad. We're getting crushed in all phases of the game by UConn.
You know Rich Rod was bad, stop that nonsense.
Total shitshow. Just wow.
Hoke has changed the tide back, and the return of jerseys at the stores have been incredible in ohio
I need a drink. Is there anything stronger than 200 proof?
I'd rather hang out with my wife than watch this. And I HATE MY WIFE.
