I swear after reading the second opponent I turned around to see if you were standing there watching me. Damned near died with the garage.
This is my favorite MGoArticle of all time.
|1 week 6 days ago||Agreed||
This is about what I predict, too. We've used up all the good karma in this series the last couple years.
|1 week 6 days ago||John McKay||
That was John McKay, not John Robinson, but I agree. Most quotable coach ever. I'm pretty sure he's also the guy who said "Well, we didn't tackle anybody today, but we made up for it by not blocking anybody."
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Not for me||
I despise these unis. I hate them more than the bumblebee unis, and I didn't think that was possible. I had a couple pleasant little daydreams involving Adidas personell and homicide while watching this game.
I guess I'm just old, but I believe that unless you're wearing a suit, you don't combine the same color and shade on top and bottom. You don't wear light tan pants with a light tan shirt. Maybe it's just me.
Also, I didn't think I had to say this, but apparently I do: 'shiny' and 'fabric' are two words that should never EVER go together.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||No WR please||
I respect Gardner so much as a person, but I really really really hope he does not go back to WR. He had an entire offseason to practice that position and he was awful. Terrible. Seriously bad. It's just not a position for him.
Tall and fast does not a WR make.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Good luck!||
I despise soccer with every fiber of my being, but I wish the very best of luck to your daughter. I hope she invents whole new ways to kick *ss.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||My favorite||
My favorite feature of the week. Thanks, BiSB. Wonderful as always.
I must say, though, I disagree with you and Brian (and probably almost everyone else). I do not find incompetent offense more frustrating than incompetent defense. I wouldn't trade this team for any of RichRod's teams.
Maybe I'm just old.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Give 'em credit||
Gotta give 'em credit. It's not easy to have a 12 play, 55yd drive.

Holy hell it's Dan Quisenberry! Logged in to upvote the 30 yr old reference.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Nice win||
Nice win. Not as big as we want. 31-13.
RBs continue to miss holes.
I continue to throw things when Green runs the ball.
Countess looks better, but not stellar.
We all worry and obscess some more.

Prof. Jerry Hathaway. Duh.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I am broken||
Ok. I concede I am broken. I am actually made somewhat pessimistic by everyone else's optimism. Clearly this is x% because I am a dysfunctional old man and y% because I'm a Michigan football fan.
Thoughts on what those numbers are?
(and oh yeah, DIE LIKE THE DOGS YOU ARE, NOTRE DAME!)
|14 weeks 10 hours ago||One vote in favor of the series||
I found this series both funny and informative. Pretty sure that was the whole point.
Thanks, guys. Job well done.
|15 weeks 13 hours ago||Nonsense!||
The spring game just proved how spectacularly dominant our defense will be!

|17 weeks 16 hours ago||Seriously?||
I can't believe I just read the line "Seems like their motivation is to keep more kids in the NCAA's clutches."
The NFL could give a rat's ass about the players. It cares about its teams and its quality of product. I suspect their theory is fewer 21 year old draftees = fewer draft busts, since an extra year is always useful for evaluating the player's actual ability.
I don't have an opinion on whether this is a "good thing" or a "bad thing" for players, but assuming the NFL is just out to get them is absurdity.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||Do they have to be current coaches?||
UAUM and MGoStrength have it dead-on. John Cooper should be EVERY Michigan fan's favorite coach. God I miss him.
Alternate: First Bucs coach John McKay. Most quotable coach ever:
"I have a 5 year plan for taking this team to the playoffs"
"Well we didn't tackle anybody today, but we made up for it by not blocking anybody."
"Would you care to comment on your team's execution?"
|17 weeks 6 days ago||Absolutely||
This is almost exactly how I watch soccer, except I don't record it or watch it.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||Nice Essay||
Welcome, Jane! Thanks for the excellent article.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||Grrr||
Am I the only one who gets annoyed that we change the official defintions of words because people are stupid?
I probably am. I should change my user name to Old and Grumpy.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||I love this series||
I love this series. I realize it doesn't work for everyone, but for me it does exactly what it's supposed to: It introduces me to a lot of players I don't know while entertaining me with witty, snarky writing.
Thanks guys. Keep it up.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Johnny Black and Diet Coke tonight||
Not able to start yet (still at work), but soon. Very soon.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Welcome!||
Welcome to the board! A plus1 to help you get going.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||'91 ND||
This is the game for me too. I was surprised to get so far through the thread before it was mentioned. I was at Michigan from '89 to '93 and it was the loudest I ever heard the stadium.
Maybe I'm just remembering it wrong, but it seemed like ND always beat us back then after we outplayed them. We HATED Notre Dame. Many of us hated ND more than OSU! (This has since been wholly rectified).
That was another game that felt like we should be up by 20 but it was super close. That diving catch is one of my clearest memories of those 4.5 years.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Misleading||
There's a chicken-and-egg issue here. Teams that win a lot have a lot of rushing yards, but that is in part because they're ahead a lot.
I'm not saying a good rushing offense isn't important. I'm just saying statistics seldom tell the whole truth.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Pretty sure he understands||
Pretty sure he understands that, hence he "misses" those days.
Dude. Seriously. You're a dick.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Culture||
It's just a local culture thing. Football (particularly youth and HS) is a bigger deal there. Basketball is a bigger deal in Michigan.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Hayes and Beyer||
Maybe I'm missing something but it seemed in the spring game that Justice Hayes has the best vision of our RBs. I think he's the surprise starter. You can argue that Beyer's already established and so can't "break out" but I think he'll be 3x as noticable this year as he was last year.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||You know...||
You know you're free to not read them, right?

6-4. 6-9 with the afro.
