But I don't have enough points. What does it mean to be a Michigan Man. To my knowledge, the phrase was most famously used by Bo when he fired Frieder on the eve of the NCAA tournament, stating that a Michigan Man would coach Michigan. I don't think it mattered to Bo whether one has a history at the University of Michigan, it was about dedication in the present. It was about ideals, not pedigree. Some outsiders (such as Bo himself) could exemplify those ideals, but not everyone can.

Season tickets sometime between 79 and 82. I was a kid and don't remember much beyond they were bad and hot apple cider was good.

My initial reaction when seeing the 2010 results was the same as yours. This season looks much better than that when you consider we could have had a (much) better record, while in 2010 they won all the close games.
On the other hand, there is something to be said for winning all of your close games.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Agree||
I think the short field favors the team that can run better, and that was clearly OSU. Also, as you mention, we were shaky from a field goal perspective. i was hoping they went for 2, and kind of surprised when they did. But the only way I think we could have won in overtime would have been to force a turnover. I think our odds of completing the 2 point-conversion were better than our odds of forcing a turnover before they beat us in overtime.

I have to get use to basketball again. I'm so used to reading about how our football opponents are terrible and then seeing said opponents do all the things the preview would suggest they couldn't.

Is it worth noting that USC "became relevant again" after firing their head coach?

Looks like both teams have some good young runners. Let's hear it for underclassmen who can execute.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Pure conjecture||
I thought I recalled reading that the timing of classes made it very hard to play football at Michigan and study engineering, but that Alabama was willing to tailor the program to meet his needs. More online classes maybe? Don't know if there's any truth to that, and my gut feeling is this was more about football than academics anyway.

I do not get the BTN. Early in the season this upset me. Now I'm kind of glad.

I appreciate your time in writing this. One question I have is why everybody seems to be giving Fitz a free pass. By the time he comes up on the defender, he knows he isn't getting the ball, but rather than putting a hat on him he stops and the play is blown up. It seems if he could lay a block on the defender, Gardner could follow off tackle.

Schoolgirls and Toussaint, both seniors, let the same blitzer run right by them for a sack.

I'm not really sure what to make of the scheme vs. execution argument. Actually, both seem to be broken, and there are two plays I will use to make my point.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Two runs||
I'm totally with you on those. I don't know if that's on Borges or if it came from on high, but I thought that signaled a willingness to settle for a field goal and hope the defense could hold the rest of the game.

Looking at the recruitment/ player maturity, we'll be pretty good to dominant in 2016.

That was my first time watching Stanford and I really liked what I saw. I don't think power or the spread is inherently superior, but I do think an individual can have an inherent preference for one over the other, and I liked Manball. Unfortunately, what Stanford was doing looked nothing like what Michigan is doing. I don't know what it takes to get there, but I hope we make it.

I have to feel that he just lost sight of the first down marker. He certainly wasn't ducking contact at other times.

I would think an armless deaf mute would be very creative. In a world designed for people who aren't armless deaf mutes, an armless deaf mute would need to devise creative solutions for the most mundane tasks in order to get anything done.

The whole Fitz issue was kind of baffling. I'm not sure what to make of a scheme that has Lewan leaving the DE to Fitz so that he (Lewan) can block air. That just seems like we were out schemed.

Don't know that I could bring myself to tip my hat, but today I feel like we were simply beaten by a better team, a sentiment I didn't feel after the PSU game.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Freshman year||
That was my freshman year and I was sitting in that end zone. I remember looking for the flag after the play with a growing sense of horror and incredulity. One of the more egregious screw jobs, in my opinion.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Physical||
How physical is Funchess, really? He's definitely big, but he's struggled with blocking, perhaps due to a lack of physicality. While I would like to see him throwing people around on the outside a la Burruss vs. Terrell, I don't think it is a foregone conclusion that will happen.
