I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
Welcome back Bi-Polar Michigan fans! We missed you!
Thank you for this public service announcement.
You mean we're not going to win a national championship this year, and that we're probably going to go something like 7-5/8-4? OMGZZZZ
Of course we're going to win a national championship this year.
Point for the title alone. Love it.
Reading this board right now, I'm pretty sure we deserve to be the first team to win the Tears of Unfathomable Sadness award without actually having lost the game. That hasn't happened before, right?
Boise State won last week during a bye.
In which case, I'm not sure which is sadder - winning the award when you got a win, or winning when you had a bye.
I shall meditate on that as I read this board.
Thank you. +1
I was just sitting down to post the same thing when I saw this.
Missed you like a canker sore...
Wouldn't it be like You miss me like... Cotton Candy.. or Michigan winning football games.
Not you Bouje! Those you mention in the subject...
Amen, we are what we thought we were, no more no less,they will be ready next week. We aren't good enough to be picky about wins yet. Deep breath everyone.
"we are what we thought we were." I don't think anyone thought DR would be that good, or the O-line. And Stonum? Had a great day today. It's just that the offense has taken a great leap forward (perhaps on the shoulders of one player), but the defense has taken a much smaller one - good enough against UConn & ND, not so much against UMass. So, maybe the "improvement gap" is what is causing everyone to complain.
Maybe it would be more precise to say that "the defense is what we thought it was." But even then, there are bright spots. Mouton?
I'd rather have the defense get shreded today against Umass and get a few weeks to learn from it then blow Umass out and get destroyed by state in a few weeks. I'll take the panic.
This is correct.
I believe DR getting pub for his stats is great, but it's no substitute for UM performing well as a whole. When's the last time we had a Heisman winner on a team w/ more than a couple of losses.
Considering we have only had 3 winners its really hard to compare. If Drob keeps it up he wins heisman even if we go 7-5/8-4.
name a heisman winner from any losing team.
We're not a losing team. Unless your trying to say we are going to finish with a losing record.
Tim Tebow 9-4
Bo Jackson 8-4
George Rogers 8-4
Im sure there are more too.
QB, ND, 2-8 in 1956
UF went 9-4 the season Tebow won the Heisman, the fourth loss coming to U-M, of course (after balloting).
Not bad, but they weren't contenders either.
Think you're cool for "calling out" alleged bi-polar UM fans? Think you're making a bold prediction that we'll blow out Bowling Green? No one's talking about Bowling Green. I think that I, and a lot of other rational, educated Michigan fans, are looking ahead to the conference schedule and see NO WAY for this defense, as it's currently comprised and coached, to stop anybody. Period.
So then your predicting a 0 in the win column for big 10 wins?
where I said that, but since you asked, I see 4-5 losses in conference. Because of the defense. Which is a major concern to anyone who knows anything about the great game of football. Which apparently a lot of posters on this blog do.
who was expecting us to win more than 7 or 8 games this year
"I DONT SEE HOW WE CAN STOP ANYONE IN THE CONFERENCE. PERIOD!!!!!!"
If we can never stop them, then we will never win a game in conference. I disagree. Completely. You're an idiot.
You're like George Costanza when he pushes the little kids out of the way during the fire.
that comment was to be taken literally, but it's obvious you're a tool that likes to try to call out disappointed fans in the heat of the moment. Fellow Michigan fans I might add.
Dude, I remember when you first arrived on this board and were a freakin leper. You got shouted down regularly for being such an ass. Then you learned to operate more respectfully and survived your initial carpet bombing. Congrats. Looks like you're back to your old tricks.
I'm calling you out for a fucking stupid comment.
End of story. If you want to bring up my posting history that's fine but ya know what I don't care and anyways I have more points than you therefore my penis is bigger than yours!
(that's what it means right?)
It means you overcompensated for getting the hell negged out of you when you first arrived by dinking and dunking your way to a huge point total.
Riiiiiiight, man. That's what it means. It also means your big penis is located above your neck.
And yes I am a prick/douchebag/asshole/dick head.
Just shut it.
(Though that's one of the many reasons I stay away from Magnus...)
4-5 losses in conference is still really - really - not that bad. I think most of us expected 7-5 or 8-4 and not contending for the Big Ten title this season.
I'd be thrilled with the CapOne bowl this year. Something to build on for next year.
Only in my wildest dreams were we going to improve from a 5-win season to a 10-win season, especially when the back end of our schedule is loaded with the B10's best, and we miss out on two of the biggest cupcakes in the conference.
And they aren't exactly known for their "stout" defense.
This + a lot.
People don't think I am but I am.
You know what happens when you look ahead? You get caught with your pants down. Kind of like Michigan's D today.
...this is the sort of reaction Bouje speaks of...
something Bo said:
"we're going to encourage each other"?
You may have to prove the rational and educated part another way, cause this post isn't cutting it.
Indie rock thread for GY! something E was bs and was not appropriate for today.
Rebut my post if you're going to neg me. Don't be a bitch.
"Rebut my post if you're going to neg me. Don't be a bitch."
I'd just add make it an intelligent rebut. Not just a "you mispelled this" or "you suck" kinda thing.
Why is it not OK to express discontent after watching the team play poorly, but just fine to shower them with non-stop praise when we play well? I understand that fans sometimes get a little bit irrational at times, but the people who are upset about the defense have a legitimate cause for concern and have every right to say so. It isn't time to jump off the deep end yet, but sometimes there just isn't a silver lining no matter how hard you look for one.
Because they were IRRATIONALLY high last week in a last second win against ND and IRRATIONALLY low this week in a win against UMass.
I guess that's just human emotions they are just irrational idiots.
It fine and yes the defense played like crap today, but alot of people are jumping off the deep end. Yes be considered but there is no need to be angry in a win, when we probably played down, and each game is its own.
Agreed. If anything, it seems as if M is pretty much on track to meet "expectations" 7 wins, give or take one. Does anyone else think the make-or-break game will be MSU? It just feels as if a win would take off a lot of a heat. A loss, it seems, would be hard to get past, no?
