I GET IT
|9 hours 53 min ago||I like the idea||
pumped up crowds are good for the team and recruiting and exposure, so yes, every year would be cool, it's the 21st century, not 1976.
|2 days 11 hours ago||A real game is more fun for the fans||
that's why, give something back to the fans, give us some football in april. I miss that we haven't done that in a while, I'd like to think we do finally have enough players, esp with so many incoming guys too.
|3 days 15 hours ago||I'll tell you where the refs pissed me off||
the lack of traveling calls on AZ and some iffy 3 second violations that should have been called as well.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Tough loss||
to a great team. However, I would like to see Walton play less, give more minutes to Spike and have Caris play the point more when needed. Walton just needs to be brought along more slowly, his play really hurt us, when he was in the game I feel like his +/- was in the negative in a big way, I wonder if someone can confirm that.
We will get better, just sucks to lose.
|6 days 7 hours ago||This is a great point you make||
we as a collective need to stay on the lookout for douchery, in whatever form. It's like I always like to say, being nice should come easy, being an asshole takes effort and generally indicates an unhappy person, easy choice really.
Thanks Brian, I'm really glad you worked hard to get this accomplished, I really appreciate all the work you and the staff does, we are truly lucky to have you guys, keep up the great work!!!
|1 week 1 day ago||I feel bad for Mack Brown||
he's a class act and was always respectful to people, sad age we live in. I understand Texas has struggled the past few years, but he did a lot for that school and won a lot of games, some big games at that.
Additionally, if Saban did take that job, would De'shawn really de-commit and give us a chance to get him or does he follow Saban to Texas, who knows.
|1 week 3 days ago||WTF?||
I'm getting really tired of a bunch of you guys, cut it the fuck out with your poor little me whining attitudes.
We are Michigan damnit, we will be getting better, Peppers will be coming here, he's got a great head on his shoulders, he realizes that a Michigan degree is >>>>>>>>>>>> than a Bama degree. I don't care if the NFL playing days are affected or not.
NFL careers can be pretty short, the rest of your life isn't, the connections of having an M degree will matter at that point, so quit feeling sorry for yourselves, quit posting asinine crap and buck the fuck up!!!
Hey Jabril, I look forward to rooting for you in an M jersey, winged helmet and Go Blue!!!
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||I was always impressed by the job||
Martin did at GVSU, I think if our staff continues to struggle (the jury is still out) then we should consider him at U-M in a couple of years if he improves Miami O to respectability, his resume' would be even more impressive.
I certainly hope though, that we will never need him cause Hoke finally got things going consistently in AA.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||OT||
Ark leading LSU 17-14 at the half in Baton Rouge, that's why you never know, I think if we came to play tmrw with great effort and a good plan, that point spread will be made to look ridiculous, which I already think it is anyway.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Just love the way||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Like the way||
we have come out to start the 2nd half, keep the pressure on boys
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Good half||
of basketball, Irvin shooting better, too bad we lost to Charlotte, should have beaten them.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed||
Walton can be really eratic at times and doesn't recognize on breaks as well as he should and needs to finish better.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Irvin sure likes||
to jack up a bunch of shots
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Early season observations||
- Jordan Morgan is still so clumsy
-Walton needs to play smarter and have better recognition on the breaks
-I think we need to play Donnal, the hell with red shirting, why do that in BBall anymore, we need a big who can score and we might as well play him and get some experience for next year when we will really need him
-Please get healthy Nik, please
|2 weeks 5 days ago||You know what||
I hope the team shuts up all you guys predicting a blowout, fuck that, I think the team will play their hearts out and show everybody up!!!
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I think Morris||
is a better pro-style QB, just maybe we would be better with him, maybe, I wouldn't know, since the game means nothing to us from a championship standpoint, why not find out.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Nothing personal directed at you||
but boo fucking who....U-M needs guys that don't give a shit about that and have an attitude of getting after it. Not fearful guys of what the offense might or might not do. Worry about your own side of the ball, if a recruit has a fearful attitude, take that crap elsewhere, I don't want to root for guys like that anyway.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||This is why we shouldn't||
put our eggs in one basket, go after all the guys that the staff finds intriguing and take the commitments as they come.
Fuck the guys that tease you and leave you dangling and all bummed out, Hand did what was best for him, well we need to do the same damn thing.
|3 weeks 2 hours ago||In 2010 at SDSU||
Borges was the OC of a team that had a QB throw for over 3,500 yds, a RB who had 1,500 yds and not one but two WR's who had 1,000 yds receiving. These were guys recruited by Chuck Long, except for the RB, who was a redshirt freshman.
That's why I just don't get it, that QB, Ryan Lindell, was able to read defenses well, maybe that is one of the huge problems. In 1998, Borges was the OC at UCLA and helped improve Cade Mcnown into being an awesome QB that year and he sucked in the NFL with NFL coaching.
In 2004 at Auburn, Borges was the OC for a team that went undefeated, had a quality QB who has done pretty decent in the NFl and not one, but two RB's who had 1,000+ yds rushing and both were 1st rd. picks.
The reason I mention these things that many people on here are already aware of, is he showed he was able to coach talented guys and coached them well, why are we not succeeding now with him? This is a mystifying question for me, is it the players? The QB? What?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I've never been as apathetic||
about The Game as I am now, with RR, I knew we would get smoked and he wasn't going to be around for much longer, but with Hoke, knowing he will be here at least another year or more, unless we become a contender again, it's just so depressing.
I've been a fan for 40 some odd years and I just don't like what I see or what I'm hearing from him, he seems clueless to me, I'm sorry, he just seems lost and his act is getting old quick. I just hope Brandon injects some influence behind the scenes, cause this crap just can't continue.
One more thing, I hope they give Morris an honest shot of starting next year, I appreciate Gardner's desire and dedication to the program, I just don't see him being a QB who can read a defense or dump the ball when he has to, among other things he does that are immensily dumb.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||This sounds almost too good to be true||
I bet Herbstreit is behind this again?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Look||
I appreciate Devin's dedication to the program, but he has hurt us way too much this year.
It's not all his fault, Borges, lack of a QB coach, O-Line, etc., but he is not good at reading defenses, holds the ball too long, doesn't use good judgement in the pocket on when to run, has made a myriad of mental mistakes.
I just hope Morris gets a fair shot at the QB job, I want Hoke to keep his promise of giving young guys a fair shot of starting or playing more. I'm sorry but Gardner has been a huge issue for us this year.
Get mad at me all you want, what we're seeing on the field tells the story. I will say that Funchess had a really bad game today and that hurt a lot.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I wish it was true||
and would happen, unfortunately, I don't believe it will, we're stuck with this coaching staff for now. How long will it take to change Brandon's mind, who knows?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Ok guys, don't know how many are noticing this||
Charlotte, which used to be UNCC, North Carolina Charlotte, upset us in the 1977 NCAA Elite Eight, had we won that game, I think that would have been our first championship.
We need to exact revenge in a cruel way 36+ years later, I'm still angry about that loss, let's do this!!!
|3 weeks 4 days ago||wow, we won||
need to hit our FT's way better than that, still won despite that
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Coach B||
please put in our best FT shooters
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I like our momentum||
going into OT, I hope we keep up the hustle
|3 weeks 4 days ago||OMG||
please make a 3 to win the game
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Please make||
your FT's Glenn
|3 weeks 4 days ago||finally||
called a travel on them
|3 weeks 4 days ago||When Kenpom had us at -3||
they didn't take into account that we were playing against both FSU and the refs.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||mother fucking||
refs can kiss my ass, fucking assholes
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Levert||
playing awful right now
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I just don't understand||
these refs, that earlier sequence was fucking BS and Mitch gets bloodied and the foul is on GRIII? say what?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||GRIII||
was really lazy on defense there again
|3 weeks 4 days ago||that tall gangly||
ass dude of theirs is getting away with a lot of shit, like traveling, moving picks, flailing arms, etc., just bull shit
|3 weeks 4 days ago||let's cut||
into their lead more, D up boys
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Another thing that the refs are not calling||
is the moving picks by their bigs, just horrendous
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Comment # 1800 for me||
Ray Liotta would be proud, I need some 1800 right now after watching these refs let FSU flail their arms all over the place with no calls
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Take Walton||
out of the game please
|3 weeks 4 days ago||these refs||
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe this will help||
I've been to DF and there is an area called Zona Rosa that is a hip area with many Cantinas. While I was there in '97 for a business trip, I was able to watch M beat ND 21-14 in some bar down in that district, go there and find a sports type cantina and the game might be on, good luck.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Watching the FSU/VCU game||
and I think FSU would pose a bigger challenge for us, although I think we'd beat them. I'm rooting for VCU, I think we would beat them by double digits again.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Good Synopsis Ace||
I was also concerned with the lack of boxing out and Walton needs to play smarter, he's a frosh so he has some leeway right now, but he definitely needs to be better by the time conference games start.
Irvin looks like he will be a good contributor too, I'm loving Nik and Caris' games, it looks like they will be the leading scorers on the team with Mitch & GRIII right behind them. Glenn still has some work to do offensively, it's almost as if he's not sure what to do with the ball when he gets it, I hope he is more aggressive this year, otherwise I really think another year of college wouldn't hurt him.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||John Harbaugh||
coaching Michigan would be so awesome, talk about having veritas on the sidelines, yes please. Sorry Brady, I'd like to give you more time unless we can get John harbaugh, we would be able to stay in the direction we're going and Mattison can stay.
|4 weeks 21 hours ago||I wouldn't mind||
an all Maize Jersey and pants with Blue lettering, I think that would look so cool with our helmets, pretty badass. I don't like what's pictured what so ever.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I appreciate Fitz dedication to the program||
but I think it's obvious to most observers that Green and Smith are better options. Sometimes the RB's can make the O-Line look better too, this game proved that, I loved the way both backs hit the hole and didn't hesitate while running downhill.
I hope we also go with a type of offense that Devin can excel better in, like in OT, man ball can wait just a bit longer, I want to win games.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I hope||
that stating Fitz starting is a "we'll see" situation, is just coach speak and that he saw with his own eyes that the 2 frosh RB's are better than Fitz.
They ran harder and hit the hole quicker, they certainly weren't any worse at blocking, pretty hard to be worse to begin with. Please play the 2 frosh so that they don't even think about transferring and more importantly, getting some experience for next year.
Look, I appreciate seniors and what they've done and been through, but the better players need to play, it's a very simple concept. Hoke needs to decide, are we going to coddle players or try to win while still treating players fairly.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Observations||
- We need to shoot better and get McGary in the rotation more when he gets more stamina going.
-Walton and Irvin looked a bit shaky, they're freshmen, they'll get better
- At the end of the game, we did a bad job of trying to get open and go for 3's.
- Morgan and Horford had bad games, especially Morgan.
- It wasn't the worse loss, we can learn from it, it's still a great team that will contend all year.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||team needs to settle down a bit||
especially the freshmen
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Hey De'Shawn||
come to San Diego St., we have real earthquakes out here! I hope Saban goes to Texas and pisses off all these Bama recruits, fuck this shit. It sure does feel like SEC pays players.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Academics my ass||
what a bunch of BS, the last 2 weeks keep getting better (by better I mean worse).
I just have a feeling the past 2 weeks of play really hurt us here, thanks again Al Borges!
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Academics my ass||
what a bunch of BS
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Why are some of you||
saying Bama when we don't know yet?
|4 weeks 5 days ago||ok||
here we go, back from commercial and I sit here putting my life on hold
|4 weeks 5 days ago||wow, milking the fuck out of it NBC Sports||
Dungy's dad went to U-M, so there you go, follow him young De'Shawn Skywalker!!!
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Quit asking him questions||
and let him choose, ugh!!!
|5 weeks 8 hours ago||Good effort, good victory||
this is a fun program to watch, I'm so glad it's ours!
|5 weeks 9 hours ago||Hi LIU Brooklyn||
please pleas keep beating Indiana
leading them 65-63 with under 5 to go
|5 weeks 9 hours ago||Team looks really good||
I really like Walton & Irvin, 2 awesome additions, makes up a lot of what we lost with Trey & THJ
BTW, thanks for the streams guys, very cool.
|5 weeks 11 hours ago||One of the most important things to me is||
that I hope they give Shane Morris a fair chance of winning the QB job, don't start Gardner because he's a senior, start him if he is better, so far he has been weak at reading defenses and getting rid of the ball in a timely fashion, can't keep doing that.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||We would be winning more||
we would never had gone 3-9 in 2008, Mallett would have stayed and played for Les, Cam Cameron would prolly be our OC right now....so yeah, much better off.
Thanks for being a great sailor Mr. Bill Martin, asshole extraordinaire.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Nothing but positive thoughts and best wishes||
to your wife and family, may she come out of this fully healthy and able to live a happy and wonderful life going forward.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Hire the coach||
from N. Illinois, why not
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Hoke is in over his head it appears||
I just hope Morris gets a fair chance at winning the QB job next year
I hope Hoke hire a QB coach, fergodsakes
I hope Hoke quits giving me excuses after losing 3 of last 4 games
I hope we don't see a bunch of players transfering, sitting Wilson, if I was him I'd be pissed off as fuck, he's not the problem, stupid decisions like that ain't helping, especially when Furman's PI was so bad, all he had to do was step in front of the WR, way to shake things up Hoke.
Hoke is becoming a joke and I'm not laughing
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Somehow||
this doesn't make me feel any better....but yeah, Go Lions!!!
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Game||
|5 weeks 5 days ago||wow, things are getting mighty interesting||
too little too late maybe
|5 weeks 5 days ago||you can't score if you don't have the ball, usually||
Oregon wasn't scoring even when they had it most of the game
|5 weeks 5 days ago||despite that TD||
Mariotta can kiss the Heisman goodbye
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I actually thought||
FSU was better than Oregon going into this game to begin with
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Oregon is getting a worse beating||
than we did last week, don't you think?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I'll take||
17-0 at the half against Oregon any effing time.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||What a great half of FB||
by Stanford against a team like Oregon, so impressive!
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Wile has a bigger leg||
Wile should have been the the guy kicking the 52 yd FG at the end of reg vs PSU...he kicked a 49 yarder vs MSU against the wind with no problem and plenty of leg, Gibbons barely made his chip shot with the wind after it hit the upright. LMAO back at ya.
Things shlould be somewhat better than they are, I'm willing to wait and was a staunch supporter of his hiring but I don't like what I'm seeing in many cases.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Is Josh Garnett playing at all?||
is he getting positive reviews? anyone know?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Man, I loved that screen pass to Gafney||
and miss having it for our offense
|5 weeks 5 days ago||What kind of team do we want to be||
I look at Stanford and Oregon and Baylor and I want to be mostly like Stanford with a substantial desire and abilty for trickeration.
On defense, I want to attack and light people up, this is what I want.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Well, after skimming through some of the comments||
I see the bickering going back and forth and it's really starting to depress me. reading some of the Ace Williams stuff and the Bleacher Report and and the comments, man oh man, hard to read and put up with, but alas, this is the plight we are in right now.
Whatever you believe or not, Mattison has the defense playing timid to me, we attacked in his 1st yr and since then we have gradually become a more bend but don't break D, I want to attack, dare people....this has disappointed me, I hope it changes.
Some of Hoke's decisions have been head sctratching, honestly, for one, Wile should be the damn FG kicker, he's obviously better, but the senior guy starts, and that guy has been struggling and everybody knows it. Also, seemingly not developing these highly rated recruits is worrisome at best.
We played with a swagger in 2011, now, I don't see that as much, something is wrong and it's very concerning.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||BYU is stupid||
they should try and team up up with San Diego St. and try to joing the Pac 12 or Big 12 or something like that.
SDSU should be attractive to the Big 12 especially cause then they can get SoCal market for TV and recruiting.
|6 weeks 14 hours ago||Ok, maybe the Pipkins point is too early too tell||
but Wile does have a bigger leg, he kicked the 49 yd FG with ease against the wind and Gibbons barely made the chip shot with the wind after it hit the goal post. Also, Wile should have been the one to kick the 52 yarder at PSU at the end of the game, these are bad decisions, plain and simple, the results tell you this.
|6 weeks 14 hours ago||For me||
I feel like Schofield should have been moved to LG and Magnuson at RT, ride with Glasgow and Kalis in the interior...Miller was not a good blocker. If Schofield is good enough to play in the NFL, teams would give him a chance to try at RT at that point, moving him to LG where he played well before would only improve his resume', not hurt it. Imagine how good the left side of the line would be that way.
We need a QB coach, plain and simple, Borges is not getting it done in that regard. I'm not sure about Gardner moving forward either, he doesn't read defenses well, is this because of the lack of a QB coach?
I also wonder if Montgomery leaving has hurt our D-Line play. Pipkins was supposed to be a stud who dominated the guy in front of him and he's been meh since enrolling, why is this? I also believe there is a leadership void sans Kovaks. I don't like bend but don't break defenses, I like defenses that are in attack mode and daring teams to move the ball.
Why is Wile not the regular FG kicker, he's obviously better than Gibbons, are we in the business of coddling players feelings or winning?
Many things are amiss, I just hope Hoke can figure things out, right now, I'm concerned and hopefully it will improve but Hoke seems too stubborn to me thus far, he needs to look at himself first.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Nice cut to the||
basket by Caris
|6 weeks 1 day ago||need to finish||
at the basket better boys
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Wayne St.||
is playing tenacious
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Not the most impressive outing thus far||
might as well work on plays like it's a practice I suppose
What level is Wayne St in? Are they as good as it seems here?
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Goaltending?||
|6 weeks 1 day ago||I like what I'm seeing||
from Spike, Irvin, Walton, Horford and Caris....he looks good at the point
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Well||
after watching Inside Mich FB, Hoke was asked why Wile kicked the 1st FG and not Gibbons, he said kicks that are 50-ish yds or so are better with Wile but Gibbons is basically still the FG kicker.
Why is this? Wile kicked a 49 yd Fg against the wind like it was nothing while Gibbons kicked a gimme that hit the upright and barely went in. Are we concerned about Gibbons feelings or winning fucking football games?
This really pisses me off, also, in 1997, the O-Line was young as hell and they kicked ass, this youth shit is excuse after excuse, I'm sorry, but something is wrong, I don't know what it is and have no answers, I just wish the coaches did.
This is from a staunch supporter of the Hoke hire, I'm just concerned at the lack of improvement, this is not a coincidence, something is amiss.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||I'm also in the whatever boat||
good luck to him, we're fine and will continue to be fine.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||if this were a real game it would be ugly||
but being an exhibition game, I say something like 85-60
|7 weeks 3 days ago||wow, PSU can score||
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Hey Penn St., assholes||
thanks for showing up, I'm still so mad Hoke gave that game away like that, never, ever coach scared....ever!!!
Our program will be fine, just not enough veterans on the team yet, one more year I guess.
What are the chances of us going undefeated the rest of the way? If we did, we would be 13-1, too bad it looks like that's a tall order right now
|7 weeks 4 days ago||If UT & GT are good academic fits, which they are||
they would also be tremendous additions from a TV Footprint, you'd have Atl & the Greater Dallas area and the recruiting base it would add to the B1G, I think those are 2 of the best possibilities out there if we are indeed expanding to 16 teams.
Also, the new logo could be B16, cause the 6 looks like G, amirite.
|8 weeks 16 hours ago||Oh, you bet your sweet ass I'm excited||
I grew up with the great '70's era and was spoiled with great basketball for 3 decades and then the SUV flipped over, ugh!
Let's just say I'm so happy to see our program being back to it's rightful place, top ten material, year in and year out, we're there now, this team is capable of winning it all, at least a sweet 16 or better.
I think in many ways we will be better than last years team, Walton is the real deal and maybe every bit as good as Burke, his advantage is he doesn't have to carry the load as a frosh like Trey did. Gonna be another fun year.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||After getting hosed by the officials in the NCAA 'Ship||
I'm just so glad to see Louisville fans get their feelings crushed.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Peppers||
can't do it all by himself, his team mates need to stop fumbling
|8 weeks 4 days ago||this comment is||
just plain dumb, come on man.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||I guess he's a decent enough QB||
but his team mates are making him look good, especially Peppers.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||what a hell of a catch||
QB just threw that ball up there, nice catch by that Washington kid
|8 weeks 4 days ago||dumb play call||
on that 1st down, had to waste a TO....just give it to Peppers
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Poor Peppers||
has to do everything, the PC QB is meh
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Peppers is||
every bit as good as the hype, he is an incredible player, no matter where he plays on the field. It's obvious that he should be put in the Charles Woodson role as soon as he gets on campus.
And oh, just go ahead and give him the # 2 jersey without further delay, no brainer.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||This Froholdt kid||
must be pretty damn good to have all these high caliber programs pursuing him, especially being a Euro kid. Hope he goes Blue!!!
It'll be nice in a couple of years from now when all our talented recruits just fill in adequately for the departed guys, I think we're pretty close to that now, just not quite there yet, man RR really held us back for half a decade as it turned out.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I'd like to see Magnuson||
play RT and put Schofield at LG where he has prior experience and that would make the left side of the line pretty formidable. Eric showed some nice ability when he came in for Lewan, I didn't notice any drop off hardly.
I would also like to see the coaches, especially Hoke and Borges play with the talent they have and not force them into being something they're not. If that's what we have to do to be successful, well then so be it, I'm willing to be patient as a fan for what we will be like down the road, I want to win, I don't care how.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||36-13 Texas||
I didn't assume extra point that time
|9 weeks 3 days ago||so true||
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Who knows with that conference||
Baylor is unproven IMO. That conference won't last, I think Okla, Okla St., Texas & Texas Tech will go to the Pac "16" eventually and the other teams will have to fend for themselves, maybe the B1G should gobble up Baylor to get into Texas when we go to 16 teams.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Texas just scored again||
|9 weeks 3 days ago||nice run for a TD||
high scoring game sparty, who knew
|9 weeks 3 days ago||stupid sparty penalties||
helping Ind stay in the game. I hope Sparty commits dumb penalties against us.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||How come we don't get to play Purdue||
while they really suck? I think Hazell will make them better, but man, it would be nice to blast them this year.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Interesting game and day so far||
Sparty is looking better and better every week and Ind is going to be a pesky team for us, we better be ready for them next week.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||I'd love to see||
JMFR play and be able to endure the rigors of the game, would be awesome for the rest of the season to finally have our best defender back.
Norfleet was very concerning to me catching punts, I hope he works those issues out because he can be so explosive with the ball, just needs to secure it first. I wonder if his problem is wanting to run with it before he catches it or a deer in the headlights type thing.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Personally||
I think they've been saving Jake for this PSU game, they can use him in disguise formations unseen yet this year.
I loved using Funchess as WR, that's his strength right now and our advantage, I want to see way more of that the rest of the season.
I'd like to see our DB's turn their heads back towards the QB more like Blake did on the pick 6.
And of course no TO's by DG is what we want, tough team to beat if we don't turn the ball over.
Get well soon PeeWee, we'll miss ya buddy.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||The cool thing about getting these commits||
is that they will probably sign the LOI in November and we won't have to worry about a de-commit. Yay for early signage!!!
Anyone have film of this guy?
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Duly noted||
I should have indicated that I meant for this year, 2014.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Seems like||

|10 weeks 5 days ago||Just a thought||
does UCLA struggling here with Utah mean that Utah is way better than Nebraska?
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I got news for you guys||
I bet that opening game in 2015 at Utah will be on FS1
Also, that will be a tough game for us, they'll be all jacked up for us, we better come ready to play that game.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||My main concern||
is the way Devin holds the ball, one little bump from his O-Lineman's butt created a fumble for a TD, someone please address this with him.
And also as others have asked, what's the policy of changing up players who are not performing at a high level, why aren't we putting in other guys to see what they can do?
|12 weeks 2 days ago||I doubt the coverage issue becomes a problem again for a while||

Yeah, big Tigers fan here too, I also get MLB extra innings, have 3 TV's on the wall and one of them was on that sorry ass game till the top of 9th, I turned the station and later noticed the Tigers were coming back and put the game back on and it became an awesome game!
|12 weeks 3 days ago||I'll save a spot for you||
next time, more than welcome, husband or dad too if you want!
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Hey SoCalWolverine||
thanks so much for creating a post thanking me, I'll tell you what, all of the folks who showed up were super cool and classy, Sandy and myself feel like we've made a bunch of really cool new friends, definitely will do it again, and we have room for more.
Thanks for coming everyone, at least we won the damn game, hopefully it will be character building, being down 14 in the 4th QT and coming back like that, Devin surely has to be more careful with the ball, holds it to loosely.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||just email me||
I left the email address on the OP post, I really don't want to post my home address on here.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Will do buddy||
Looks like we'll have about 10-12 people here, pizza is the thing and M football is the game!
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Thank you||
Nice to be appreciated, wish you could make it as well, oh well. Make a note of my email and drop me a note sometime and we can create an mgoblog family out here, you gotta be cool folks, you're an M fan , afterall.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Much obliged||
very kind of you to say so, I felt bad for people not being able to watch and it pissed me off about the gameplan money grab from espn.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||I appreciate that Balrog||
I figure some are just joking and some wanna be wise asses.
It's almost making me say fucki it, but I'll honor my word, already spoke to a couple of cool guys and I should know by tmrw, you can bring a spouse, friend or whatever, as long as they're M fans.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||I get||
ABC in NYC because I'm grandfathered in with DTV
|12 weeks 5 days ago||It's all good man||
I just wish people would cut it out with the dumb child molestation jokes, that shit ain't funny with all the freaking creeps out there, seriously folks.
I'm trying to do something nice for M fans, I could just watch the game with my GF and not give a fuck about anybody else, if some of you want to continue joking like that, take that shit somewhere else, I don't have time for it.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Ok, now I'm worried||
should I be creeped out by this?
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Haha||
you're just jealous cause you can't come over, and with all your friends and family gone, you must so lonely! :)
What up Turd!
BTW, I was in Michigan for that rededication game, I must be super fast to be able to do what you claimed.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Well since my GF will be here||
I prefer no 14 yr olds, they can stay at home. You can bring significant other if so desired, it would be fun, let me know.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||hey||
I live on Rose Canyon, right off the 52 just east of I-5, kitty corner freeway from mount soledad,
just 5 minutes from PB
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Because I'm||
grandfathered in from the late 90's, I decided to keep the national affiliates and my wisdom is paying off. I pay a fee monthly for these channels, ABC & NBC in NYC & L.A., $3.50/month for each.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||thanks a lot for the kind words||
I lived in PB for 20 years, fun times,,,I live 5 minutes from PB
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, I wonder||
how Delaney and the AD's feel about that great expansion now?
|12 weeks 6 days ago||For all you SoCal folks, especially in San Diego||
If I get the blessing from my GF, I'm thinking about having a viewing party at my house, I get ABC NYC, cause I'm cool like that. I will post a thread on the board tomorrow if she gives me the thumbs up, I live near La Jolla, kitty corner off the 52 freeway.
|13 weeks 7 hours ago||BTW folks||
I believe you can purchase individual games on the gameplan for like $20-$25 or something. It's worth it, going to a bar and dealing with a crowd and you'll spend way more is a hassle.
|13 weeks 7 hours ago||Good question||
I've been with DTV since 1995, back in the late 90's when they started adding the Networks to the package, the san diego affiliates were not joined yet, so they offered me NYC & LA ABC & NBC and after the san diego affiliates finally joined sometime later, I was able to keep the out of town affiliates because I was grandfathered in.
I knew it would pay off at various times and this is a case where it does. I pay $3.50 a month/each for both ABC & NBC to have them, it's worth it, if I ever drop them for even one month, I can never get them back even if I wanted to, that's why I kept them.
|13 weeks 11 hours ago||Sweet, bring some single malt||
and you're welcome to my house brother!!!
|13 weeks 12 hours ago||I guess if there are enough people wanting to do this||
Mich football party at my house, let me know if some of you in the area are interested.....BYOB YO!!!!
|13 weeks 12 hours ago||sorry man||
I will edit the title, I had not considered your plight, I was just so happy for me, I got hasty about it.
|13 weeks 12 hours ago||LOL dude||
sarcasm all around, I don't care as long as I get to watch my beloved Wolverines, all is right with the world!
|13 weeks 12 hours ago||I just looked at the Saturday ABC schedule guide in NYC ABC||
affiliate and it finally shows Mich v UConn.....and the San Diego local ABC channel was earlier showing KSU v TX, now says game to be determined, gee, I wonder what they're going to show.
|13 weeks 14 hours ago||Man oh man||
If I wasn't going to be able to watch this game, I would be one pissed off dude.
However, luckily for me, as a DTV subscriber since 1995, when they 1st started showing the local affiliates on DTV, the San Diego channels weren't available yet and I was able to get the NY & LA ABC & NBC affiliates and now I'm grandfathered in and can keep them for the fee I pay every month, this BS is finally paying off after all these years, as I'm sure the NYC ABC affiliate will show our game, whew!
My overall solution, fuck you UConn and don't ever schedule a game with these assholes ever again! What a fucking cluster fuck this is for one of the hugest fan bases anywhere.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Bama just||
cannot stop TAMU
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Johnny is the Man-Ziel!!!||
he good, haters gonna hate it!
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Our game today||
gave me a fucking headache, so glad we luckily won. We really deserved to lose today, I'm really concerned with the defensive playcalling, why isn't Mattison being more aggressive?
Whenever we were aggressive on D, we stuffed them, fuck that passive shit, what are the opinions out there?
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Bama is going the wrong way! :)||
|13 weeks 3 days ago||I love that Bama is TAMU's||
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Will we even get the ball again before the half?||
come on Michigan
|13 weeks 3 days ago||no fucking pass rush at all||
Mattison needs to change things up
|13 weeks 3 days ago||playing like shit today||
they better wake the fuck up and fast
|13 weeks 3 days ago||O-Line needs to wake the hell up||
need to push better
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Welcome Sean||
hope you have a fulfilling career at U-M.
I gotta say, nice player for a walk-on, shoots well, has good hop, nifty around the basket, likes to play defense. Redshirt and then maybe a couple years down the road he can be a great practice player and get some minutes here and there.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||He's a tough guy||
The best thing that happened for him was Hoke becoming coach, it allowed him to showcase his talents. He might not be tall or super fast, but WR's at Michigan need to be able to block, run good routes and be tough in general for this staff.
The guy has good hop, great hands, runs well after the catch and is hard to bring down cause of his stocky build, I bet Tom Brady would love to have a guy like Gallon on his team, Jeremy would be able to catch a lot of passes if that was the case.
He might not get drafted high, but he has a chance to catch over 70 or 80 passes IMO and over 1,000 yds receiving this season. Someone will draft him in the middle rounds and he will definitely be playing on Sundays, he's got a lot of talent and ability.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Pretty interesting||
that you feel the need to take a dig at me for using the word "shoulda", when you consider all the crap grammar being used out there with texting and twitter, you're an asshole and you should STFU.
If Gardner was made to be the focal point initially and had gotten the majority of the 1st team reps and the offense was geared for his talents, he might have done better and been better prepared to be the QB from the beginning....but obviously this is all conjecture on all our parts and we're basically guessing.
All I was doing was giving my opinion, I don't deserve to be attacked anymore than you do.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||How old are you to post garbage like you did||
1st of all, you can disagree with me without needing to tell me to STFU. Also, DG is obviously a better QB, a real QB, unlike Denard, who shoulda realized who he really was and play an "athlete" position from the get go, that woulda helped his stock for the NFL way more. Denard was a turn over machine, especially when he threw the ball, he might be a great person but he's not a QB.
Your opinion is your opinion, not the gospel, so get over youself.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Just think about||
how good we would've been in 2011 & 2012, had Gardner been implemented as the QB from the start of Hoke's tenure. It pisses me off for last year especially, maybe Bama game is still a loss but much closer, but ND & Neb. were easily winnable with DG at QB and later in the season the ohio and bowl game would've have been way more winnable with a more experiencd DG and Big Al opening up the playbook more, especially against ohio in 2nd half.
Also, if that was the case, Mich is in the BTCG last year and playing a Wisc team that runs mostly and we were solid against the run, I feel like we would have been 11-2 or 12-1 going into a Rose Bowl game against Stanford, alas. Clowney thing would never have happened either!
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Just came here to say Go Blue!!!!!||
will check in from time to time, I'll be on Maize n Brew.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Interesting that he mentioned Glasgow getting time at C||
I wonder what he and Borges felt about Miller's effort in game 1, I thought he played very effectively. Maybe he just wants a bigger combo of guys in there in case ND D-Line is playing off the blocks too well, hopefully thi is a good problem and not a bad one.
ND did give up a lot of passing yards to a QB who isn't experienced and it's Temple, also I noticed the ND D-Line was getting pushed downfield way more than they did last year. With our O-Line being more stout and I think we're drastically improved at Center and having a much better QB in Gardner, I like our chances, we show up to play well and it's our game for the taking.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Why did the Pats even||
cut him, he's been the best punter in the league since he went into the NFL, I don't get it.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Kelly stating M is not really a rivalry||
is such bull shit, he's trying to save face for dropping us off the schedule. I want to beat down that asshole really good this week and shut him the hell up.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||I could see Gibbons or Washington||
getting the #98 Jersey, also Cam Gordon, all well deserving.
I like our chances very much next week, team looks solid and well coached in all 3 phases of the game. I think there will be a huge emphasis on the team not wanting to lose it's last home game to ND for how ever long that will turn out to be.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||You're welcome||
glad I could help.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Let me chime in here||
I have 3 TV's on my wall, all with a dedicated DTV Box, I have all 3 connected with a dedicated audio input on my receiver so that I can switch the audio at will.
Now mind you, I only have one of the DTV boxes connected with an optic audio wire while the others are hooked in with patch cords(RCA Wires, White & Red).
The audio is definitely sucky from the patch cord ones and just fine with the optic connection, but it's especially weak today, I don't know what the reason behind it is, but I'm sick of having to raise and lower the damn volume.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||TAMU is in trouble today||
Rice has some big boys and nise skill guys, their QB is good.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||haha, ohio roughed punter||
gonna have to wait a little longer to go for 2 pts again Uban Asshole!
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Urban trying to get his Oregon on.||
going for 2 pts again, can you say douche" I mean do you really need to do this to Beefalo?
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Been on the SBNation MSU site||
bantering with those guys, trying to be nice, I was made to feel welcome by the regulars from BYB, I'm on there a lot. Thy are not happy with their QB situation. Dantonio needs an OC, their defense is being wasted with a horrible offense.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Treadwell was MVP of that game||
he changed the complexion of the game in the 2nd half, gotta admit.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Duly noted JGB||
I'm sorry if I crossed a line with my mentioning it. The comments on there are not all yes TD at all, mostly competent comments with good dialogue.
It just gets so crowded on here with the live blog, that it gets frustrating sometimes, thanks for listening man.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Vandy still alive||
what a great game.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||I wonder how long it will be||
before they call a penalty on the defense for a guy hitting the back of his head on the ground, I wouldn't put it past them anymore.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Come on Vandy||
the only school that has good academics in the ess eee see, time for a TD drive to win this thing!
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Sorry guys||
but I thought the 2 blogs were friendly with each other and do cross over stuff/stories.
Also, on Maize N Brew, every comment shows up without the mods deciding which do or don't, just sayin', don't hate fellas.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Dammit, USC||
just had to go and ruin a good narrative of them possibly sucking and losing this game, eh, maybe they will still struggle tonight.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Hey guys||
I'm gonna be commenting on Maize N Brew for the CMU Game, many of you should join me, it's the best format out there for game threads, SBNation that is.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Nice drive by Ole Miss here||
they mixed it up really well.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||good game this Ole Miss/Vandy game turned out to be.||
football late is great!!!
|15 weeks 5 days ago||USC is gonna struggle again in the Pac 12||
Could easily lose 4-5 games by my estimation.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Hawaii 5 USC 3, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA||
must've been that Earl Weaver Special (3-run HR)
|15 weeks 5 days ago||espn has one thing going for it||
Joe Tesitore, what an awesome voice and he seems fair. I really like that guy, he should be the # 1 Play by Play guy, but not with that shithead, Herbstreit, he has the worse voice and I can't even hear him sometimes, not to mention his damn bias we have to listen to.
Does anyone else for Ole Miss know how to catch a ball besides Treadwell?
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Man, Treadwell looks like he's||
a junior, big bodied and fast and can catch, damn you Treadwell!
|15 weeks 5 days ago||You know||
Rutgers looks like it could be a decent program in the future, will make our division even tougher. I actually think they should switch MSU to the west division and bring Purdue to the east division to make it more interesting.
Just gaurantee our game with Sparty as a cross over, don't beat me up guys. I think this way we can at least count on MSU to beat our division oponents to help us out more.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Sorry about the caps earlier||
I pressed caps lock and didn't realize it.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Man, Treadwell looks like the real deal||
TOO BAD HE WASN'T SMART ENOUGH TO COME TO U-M AND DOMINATE AS A FROSH WITH GARDNER THROWING HIM THE BALL. SOMETHING REALLY FISHY ABOUT THAT WHOLE THING.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||So do we now worry about Minny afterall?||
|15 weeks 5 days ago||A welp for Minny defense||
untouched 26 yd TD run up the middle.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Minny defense||
looks suspect, UNLV moving the ball on them at will.
Ind already up 7-0
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Dammit UNC, blew a chance there with||
that fumbled punt.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Come on UNC||
stop them here and get the ball back and then score another TD, specifically on Clowney's side, thanks in advance!
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Will be interesting to watch IU & Minny||
do some scouting, I got 3 monitors on my wall, I'm spoiled.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Thank goodness UNC scored a TD||
maybe they can stay competitive afterall.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||So?||
UNLV vs. Minn
Ind St. vs Ind.?
