If Caris stays healthy he, the last 2 years would have looked a lot different. I have only seen 1 player dominate a road game for Michigan like Levert dominated that Illinois game last year, and that guy is Jamal Crawford. I think Caris has a bright future.
|2 days 7 hours ago||7-11 seems optimistic?||
They will be favored in 6-7 of their remaining 12 games. Projecting that out, you get a 8-10 record. How is 7-11 optimistic. I will eat a whole bag of lemons if this team doesn't win 7 B1G games.
|2 days 7 hours ago||The End||
|4 days 23 hours ago||Prediction||
All of you are way too pessimistic. Big W for the good guys tonight. Irvin has a career night.
|1 week 1 day ago||Interesting||
But I literally just watched Coleman-Lands miss back to back wide open 3's. Shitty happens, but I think that 3's made against us will regress to the mean.
|2 weeks 55 min ago||Great article||
It's a shame what happened to Caris at Michigan. Injuries derailed what could have been a jersey retiring type of career. Wish him nothing but the best, and I am betting on him to be rookie of the year. Only 20 at 35 to 1, but let's hope I am collecting my money in june.

16-13. You heard it here first.

|2 weeks 2 days ago||novel concept||
It's a nice idea, but it will never ever happen.
What is less likely to happen is to scrap the 9 game conference schedule. Play 3 OOC games and play your 6 divisional opponents. Then play cross divisional games, using a World Cup formula, East #1 plays West #2. West #1 plays East #2. Then vice versa. Best 2 teams from each of the P5 Conferences play for a Conference Championship and berth in to the CFP (6 teams, 5 autobids and 1 at large).
It keeps the importance on the regular season, and greatly strengthens the end of season and keeps the tradition somewhat.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Disagree with that thought process||
That just means we were not as close as we thought and the B1G was probably overrated
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Wrong||
I hate when fans spew things that are NOT true.
Clemson won the ACC in year 3 with Dabo.
They appeared in the conference championship in his first year.
They waited 7 years to play in the National Championship.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Actually this is somewhat of a perfect storm||
This is a perfect storm. I really do think staee will be garbage next year and my worry is not in Dantonio staying, because he is Lloyd Carr, msu version. When met with a superior opposition he will fail more often than not.
My worry is PJ Fleck. I was really hoping he would leave Western and get a big time job. Now, I worry that he is waiting for Dantonio to retire or get fired. PJ Fleck is the only coach that sparty could land and make me pause, literally the only coach.

never thought I would see the day that they closed the gap to 10 wins, which might happen this year. In the words of the great Al Davis, "Just Win Baby!"
|9 weeks 9 hours ago||I will be there||
wearing full on Michigan gear as always with the hidden camera glasses.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||If he doesn't respond in the next 10 minutes||
If he doesn't respond in the next ten minutes, put your email address down. I have an 11 am conference call and then I have to go.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Nailed it!||
The 8 players are Manny Harris, Deshawn Sims, Novak, Hardaway, Burke, LeVert, Irvin, Stauskas
What is your email?
|10 weeks 2 days ago||No||
2 early in his tenure that were Amaker recruits, 1 low 3 star recruit and then 4 players from the Final Four Team and 1 current player.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||50-7||
50 AND 7 is not correct. 50 is correct. 7 is not.

Close but not quite, reread your answers.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Been to every game since 2000||
Saw Henson run a naked bootleg to win, and haven't witnessed victory down there since then.
In 2002, I went with some college buddies, fairly tame, lots of yelling and unwitty banter.
In 2004, more of the same, although I did witness a friend of a friend receive a full beer on her head.
In 2006, shit really hit the fan. I took my girlfriend, now my wife and she was assaulted in the bathroom. I also had 2 random guys come up to me on the walk down Lane Ave and sucker punch me or throw a shoulder in to my chest. Keep in mind I was with 3 other women. When we left, a couple beer bottles were tossed in our direction, but thankfully missed.
In 2008, literally nothing happened.
In 2010, I sat in a suite with some high rollers from Columbus, again, nothing happened.
In 2012, we sat in the Michigan section which is 5c. Other than a few idiots inside the stadium yelling obscenities it wasn't bad.
In 2014, eerily similar to 2008, more pity than hate.
I expect this year to be fairly similar to 2006. I have a parking pass for the lot outside the stadium.
Parking/Tailgating - I would suggest not tailgating. I disagree with the statement above, about getting there early. The best approach is to try and get there at 11:30 and park in a fairly big lot. If you get there early and try to tailgate and don't have Michigan colors on but don't have OSU colors on they will figure it out. I have honestly parked every year with this philosophy and never had a problem. And I always wear my Woodson jersey to this game and I have it on before we get in the car.
Walking in to the stadium - Keep your head on a swivel, walk in groups. There will be other Michigan fans walking in as well, try to pair up.
Inside the stadium - Don't interact with anyone that is clearly drunk (remember they serve beer at the stadium).
Leaving - If we win, you need to migrate towards a section/area with a lot of Michigan fans. Stay and enjoy the moment or leave right away, but make sure you do it with a larger group of fans.
|11 weeks 9 hours ago||Just like hoke never stopped a real offense||
Both coaches were absolutely terrible as evidenced by their tenure at Michigan and afterwards. Both will probably be looking for a job in a couple weeks.
|11 weeks 9 hours ago||Lol||
You want to credit the coach who led michigan to their worst offensive output of the modern Era? Michigan scored 250 points in 2014 and was so inept one offense that it was laughable, but sure coach hoke is responsible for that 2011 offense being so prolific. Don't get me wrong, richrod's defenses were just as epically bad, but to credit hoke for 2011 is like sticking your head in the sand.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||How many tickets does each school get?||
I seem to remember it was 25k per school, but could be wrong.
There are only about 2.5k active donors with at least 400 priority points, meaning the school is only offering at most 7k tickets with this offer (1k donors have 750+ points = 4k tickets and 1.5k donors have between 400-749 points = 3k tickets).
I know they will reserve some tickets for the students and band, but the numbers don't add up, unless the ticket allottment per school has drastically changed since the first game in 2011.
Edit: I found an article stating that Iowa only had 10k last year, so maybe it is only 10k, which would make the above numbers more understandable.

We are not trying to get beat by Alabama 38-0.
|12 weeks 20 hours ago||I really want to hear harbaugh's post game||
I thought his play calling and general coaching was very Brady Hoke Hokeish, bordering on Lloyd Carr turtleneck. Not jim's best effort.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Same here||
I got it at -3. I wouldn't touch -24.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Like it||
However, somewhere there needs to be dantoni's comment about pride before the fall and selling results.
|13 weeks 6 hours ago||Hang on||
Western crushed Illinois, beat northwestern on opening weekend (never easy) and has scored 30+ on pretty much everyone. Their offense is legit, defense is upper tier Mac level, but given what I have seen this year, Western would beat just about every team outside the top 20, so 10 may be high, but 30-40 is just as ridiculously low.
|13 weeks 14 hours ago||Until we beat them||
I still believe they will play their best game against us and it will be a dog fight to the end. Don't fall for their trap, we need to play our best to win down there.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Probably Not||
I would bet my entire 401k that Michigan beats Michigan State this year, so the point about Michigan State is going to be moot in 18 days. It's going to take some time to compete with Ohio State. They are loaded, top to bottom, and while Brady recruited well, he didn't recruit at that level. Michigan will be competitive with Ohio State this year, probably struggle against them next year, but then be competitive with Ohio State year in and year out. Get some perspective.
