|2 days 14 hours ago||Ugh||
At what point do we no longer have to listen to RichRod as an excuse? Here's hoping that Hoke works out, but he has now had more time in the program than RR did, and the further we've gotten away from the prior regime, the worse the team has performed.

You scared me into buying tickets ahead of time. Ended up finding 10 reasonably-priced tickets via SeakGeek. All advice was appreciated!

Readily aware of that possibility. Hopefully we're up 30 already and it doesn't matter. But with that in mind, do you know if I need a ticket for my 3-year old?

I suppose I should have been a bit clearer. Ideally they'd be together, but the same general location would work too. Complete non-starter? Should I just start searching broker sites?
|5 days 12 hours ago||Sure we were still pretty bad||
Sure we were still pretty bad in 2013 but you're comparing the worst games in 2013 with one of the best games in 2009.
The problem is there were a of "worst games in 2013" against which to compare that 2009 game. And Tate was a true freshman in 2009. Last year we rolled out a senior QB and two soon-to-be NFL tackles, and we still couldn't do anything on offense for most of the season. Save for a wonderful 2011 season, this program has not moved forward significantly from 2009 until now. I hope you're right about this season though.

You read through an entire post about soccer, a fact that was not hidden, because the picture at the top is of a soccer game, and then commented just to whine that the post was entirely about soccer? What are you, some kind of idiot?

"[A]dults are better than that at weighing their priorities and don't purposely break the rules and then play victim."
This is breathtakingly stupid. No one is condoning his drug use, but he IS a victim of a penalty that is grossly disproprotionate to the crime committed, as you and the NCAA have both acknowledged. There is no reason for the NCAA to force a kid out of school unnecessarily, which is exactly what they did.

It's been "well-documented" that rings deserve grains of salt? By whom? Pistons fans?

You're crediting Tom Crean for "coaching" Yogi Ferrell to score 27 points on 10 shots? The dude played lights out. I don't blame that on Beilein.

LOL. I stand corrected.
Also, you play baseball like a girl.

You're correct. There is no difference at all between the selection process and outcome of the actual games played.

You honestly believe that Notre Dame (or any other school with an UA deal) is going to be at a competitive disadvantage because of the shoes they're wearing?

But there was outrage over the football victory
I'm fairly certain no one was "outraged" that we won the football game.

That 2010 offense was also the first year that RR really had the guys he really wanted to run it, all of whom were young, most importantly at QB. And Denard was a true sophmore. The offense certainly struggled against good defenses, but it had a clear identity, and I don't think it was unreasonable to assume that it would have only gotten better as the players gained more experience. Comparing the only year in which RR was able to get his offense up and running to those from Carr's best years is unreasonable.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||We have had 2 offensive||
We have had 2 offensive coaching staffs in a row that could not successfully adjust to their personnel, and it has KILLED Michigan football.
I recognize that this is rehasing the past unnecessarily, but there's a huge difference between RR not adapting his his offense to Threet/Sheridan in year 1 (his failure to do so did not KILL Michigan football) and Borges' inability to figure out how to use Denard, one of the greatest athletes in the progam's history, in Borges' first two years. That really set us back. As did Borges' gameplanning this year. The offense almost never worked.
I wish Al all the best, but the change was entirely justified.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||?||
We'll find out NEXT year how great Malzahn is? He took a team that was 3-9 last season and has them winning at halftime of the national championship game. He's already established he's pretty great.
And stop trying to compare him to Hoke. their experiences as coordinators are not the same. Hoke has never been an offensive or defensive coordinator.

Good grief why do we need a Michigan alumnus coaching DBs? Why can't we just try and hire the best youch coach available for the job, regardless of where they went to school?

Michigan appears to be further back at this point than Zona. I think that much can be said.
You're inarguably the most clueless poster on these boards. I think that much can be said.
|34 weeks 14 hours ago||The chemistry issues need to||
The chemistry issues need to be addressed as do the well-discussed offensive and defensive problems.
So basically everything about the team other than the actual exectution on special teams needs to be addressed. Yeah, three full years in, we're in great hands with the current coaching staff.
|34 weeks 14 hours ago||"But it's almost four years||
"But it's almost four years ago now that he got canned, and people should just let it go."
The problem with that statement is that plenty of people on these boards, and more importantly, Dave Brandon, want to continue to blame RR for all of the Michigan football team's current woes. And what's not helping the matter is that as we get further removed from the RR era, Michigan (especially on offense) appears to be getting worse, while RR has taken a mid-level Pac-12 team and appears to be making them better.
