I'd like to see a B1G team win the MNC and end the SEC streak. I think they can beat Florida State. So go Bucks.
I hope that Spary still gets a Rose Bowl bid.
We of course will enjoy the Whatever Bowl.
|1 day 21 hours ago||The Game brought me down off||
The Game brought me down off the ledge. I had railed against Hoke and Borges in several threads. But what we saw in The Game was a well-coached team going toe-to-toe against a talented team coached by one of the best in the college game. Maybe it all came together for the offense on Saturday like a lightning bolt, I can't say. Maybe it was just a matter of everything they'd been taught gelling.
But what we all saw was significant potential. When firing on all cylinders, this team has a great deal of potential and grit. Moreover, the team played a disciplined football game, except for the fight that erupted. This was the offense we were waiting all season to see.
I was wrong about this coaching staff. Maybe it really was just a case of needing the time and the experience of this season to put everything together.
As a result, I'm looking forward to next year. I think we're going to see a much improved team next season, with BIG championship potential. I can't wait for the bowl game.

Not sure that's a good trade-off, since that will happen anyway by simply watching Borges' offenses.

I just cracked up. Thank you.

I know you were kidding about these, but they're actually kind of cool. And I generally dislike alt uniz.

I can't rank it among the best games because I'm still trying to remove the stake that was driven into my heart at the very end.
However, I'm extremely proud of the fight and pluck our team showed, and it was a very well-played and exciting football game.

It showed the potential of the team when playing well, so yes, it did change expectations for me.

I would like to see OSU play for the MNC and win.
I'm tired of all the complaining about the B1G.

Devin is maturing as a quarterback, and let's face it, he played much of the season under very difficult circumstances with that O-line.
Yesterday's game shows his true potential.
To anyone who says he's not a great Michigan quarterback, look at the record book. He's definitely one of the best, and next year will be phenomenal.
|4 days 21 hours ago||The world loves a good||
The world loves a good redemption story, and we certainly saw one today.
I was pessimistic these past few weeks as the team seemingly drifted backwards, but maybe what we saw were the ups and downs of growing pains.
|4 days 21 hours ago||I agree that it's unlikely||
I agree that it's unlikely that Hoke would have replaced them absent Brandon putting his foot down. This game was redemptive in many ways for the program.
Whether a change will be made or not, there is reason for hope.

It was an awesome showing.

Considering that our main field goal kicker was out, and that we couldn't stop OSU's offense toward the end of the game, on balance I have to think that the 2 point conversion was the right call.
Might as well go for the win in regulation.

Proud of our guys. I was one of the guys who said we didn't have a chance. I was very wrong.

This was a good, close game when I certainly didn't expect one. I think it was good coaching to get the team to play this well and not mail it in.

I woke up today feeling a glimmer of hope for a monumental upset. I can't explain why.

Pelini's a good coach. I don't blame him for being sick of all the speculation about his job, and the lack of support he is getting from his AD.

I'm going to stop reading your anti-defeatist whine-material, because the last redeeming aspect about your posts has died for me.
I'm going to go elsewhere to read interesting, fun posts making clever comments about how bad the team is.
Since you're leaving, don't feel any obligation to answer this post.
Now that Brandon has confirned that Hoke is the coach who will be with us until the NCAA outlaws football as a sport, we'll have plenty of opportunities to enjoy hand-wringing and complaining for many wonderful years to come!
Future joiners of this blog will be able to say, "Michigan was once good at football? Really? Tell us about those days, great-grandfather!"
|6 days 6 hours ago||The last dynamic offense we||
The last dynamic offense we played was Indiana, who put 47 points up in a game where we scored over 60. We will not have that kind of offensive success this game; it's more realistic to predict that we'll see lots of 3-and-outs.
It's certainly reasonable to think that with OSU's dynamic offense, we could see them put up more than 50 points, but I think we'll see a score in the 40s against our defense.
I could see us not scoring a touchdown, but in all probability we'll be able to get one.
|6 days 18 hours ago||I don't know what you guys||
I don't know what you guys are talking about, look at our mighty defensive stop against our rival, Akron.
Those guys will think twice about trash talking us again!
|1 week 2 hours ago||I think Brandon has done a||
I think Brandon has done a disservice to Michigan from the beginning. The decision to fire RR after three years was foolish. The way it was handled showed inexperience. Hiring Hoke was not a stellar move. The mascot trial balloon angered Michigan traditionalists. He is on record stating that he would like to have advertising within the stadium.
He has greatly and unnecessarily expanded the marketing staff, when that money could be spent on more productive things.
He wasted thousands of dollars on skywriting "Go Blue" over MSU's stadium - absolutely a bush league move.
And now, naturally, he is supporting the guy he hired who isn't doing very well with the talent he has on hand.
Hey, as long as we are stuck with this staff, I hope they do very well. I'd love to be wrong.
You ask who'd be a better AD - how about the Louisville AD? Look how well their programs are doing with far less in the way of resources. There are lots of good ADs out there with real athletic program experience.

These guys have been to enough rodeos to know this is the end of the line. Saturday will be their last game as Michigan's official coaching staff. They'll be allowed to coach the bowl game as lame ducks.
It's in their faces.

I think I hate the way Al Borges has called plays this year more than I hate OSU.
And I do think it's childish to call OSU "Ohio."

Brian, you expressed exactly what I've been thinking, but in a more organized way.

Glad you charted this. Not that a chart was needed, the eyeballs certainly told us this in general terms, but it helps to see exactly how the offense regressed from game to game.

Don't worry, guys, Dave Brandon has our backs:
Jet packs. For the entire team.
And if there's a loss, golden parachutes for the coaching staff.

"Men, I've got some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that Dave Brandon has replaced Coach Borges."
Devin Gardner jumps up, raises both arms over his head, yells, "Yesss!" and gets on his knees and says, "Thank you God for saving my life."
"I guess you didn't understand what I meant, Devin. I meant that Dave Brandon has made himself the new OC."
There is a stunned silence in the team meeting room. Devin crumples to the floor. After the sound of a few throats clearing, and crickets, Lewan says, "OK, Coach. What's the good news?"
"Gentlemen," Hoke begins, "I am thrilled to announce that Krispy Kreme has improved its glazed donut recipe!"

I think he'll wear a flak vest this week instead of a coat.

Nebraska won the division last year. That's relevant. In fact, their record over the past few years is superior to ours. And in recent years, they also went to the championship game for the B12.
Sadly, Michigan's become the significantly less relevant team.
