No, I'm actually robot
|18 hours 1 min ago||I remember being furious with Ecker at the time||
What the hell was he thinking? He didn't even ATTEMPT to keep the play alive, he just dove out of bounds.
|19 hours 52 min ago||Not surprised by this at all if true||
But I wonder, if we are to believe you are so well-informed, why did you believe this past Monday would be the day, when virtually all the evidence indicated that the decision would not be made until after the NFL season was over?
|20 hours 9 min ago||Not to mention the barbarism of using two spaces after sentences||
Ugh. This isn't Columbus. This is a civilized community, people.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Um I don't think so||
he may just decide he prefers the NFL. It would be a shame in my opinion, given that if he restores the program he'd have a statue next to his idol, Bo. But in the end it's Harbaugh's decision.
|2 days 13 hours ago||If it doesn't happen, I'm heading to my bunker||
|2 days 17 hours ago||So if Jim Harbaugh elects to stay in the NFL||
what do we do to Gregg Henson/Jeff Moss/Steve Lorenz?
|3 days 7 hours ago||Remember when Hoke had turned the tide of the rivalry?||
Nothing has even happened yet this time and people are claiming that we are saved and back to the top.
I know the Hoke comment was mostly treated as a joke initially but people really did start believing it after he beat OSU his first year. Everyone was claiming that Hoke's recruiting would ultimately destroy Dantonio and that OSU was just a tire fire (that was before the Urban hire but then even after the Urban hire people laughed and made comments like "wow good job hiring a coach Michigan has never lost to"). Then some random paper made rankings of Big 10 coaches and Hoke was like 4th behind Urban, Dantonio, and Bielema, and some here had the audacity to claim that Hoke would eventually beat them all...
Sorry I have to do this but seriously a reality check is in order. Last I checked Harbaugh is not our coach and Michigan is 2-6 against Dantonio and 0-3 against Meyer (1-3 if you count the Florida game...)
|3 days 7 hours ago||Agh but none of this has happened yet! Except Herman||
and if we don't get Harbaugh we may be worse off for that, having lost a good backup option...
|3 days 7 hours ago||Nothing has even happened yet||
and we are talking about "seismic" shifts...
|3 days 10 hours ago||When it's official Harbaugh is staying in the NFL||
we'll talk about which of these stupid threads jinxed it, and how many decades it will take before we beat OSU again.
Last I checked Harbaugh is not the coach yet. All that has happened in the past day is that some NFL guys who had their heads in the sand finally acknowledged that Harbaugh was giving Michigan "some thought." Also some mysterious Twitter user who everyone was lambasting as a fraud just a few days ago has a thread with ~200 replies.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Hey I'm normally pretty optimistic about stuff||
except when it comes to Michigan football. I became a concious fan in 2001. Michigan has gone 2-12 against OSU during that stretch. I became a "diehard" in 2009. Michigan has beaten MSU just once since then.
This is just what I have come to expect. As an undergrad student and grad student I feel lucky to have seen one victory each over OSU and MSU in 6 years, seeing as many of those who came before me saw just one. Even then, Michigan won those games by the skin of their teeth against "down-year" rival teams.
I was in seventh grade for Michigan's last great victory over OSU.
|3 days 16 hours ago||My prediction on what will happen?||
It will look like it's happening all the way to December 29, at which point Harbaugh schedules a press conference. All the insiders say it's happening and Brian and Sam Webb finally cave and announce that it is. Two hours before the press conference some no name NFL guy tweets that a Godfather offer has been made from the Falcons or some other random NFL team. The press conference is cancelled half an hour before. The next morning it is announced JH is staying in the NFL. Mgoblog and the city of Ann Arbor erupt in flames.
|3 days 16 hours ago||I still have not||
The only way I will is if Jim Harbaugh himself utters the words "I will be the next coach at the University of Michigan" or something to that effect.
|3 days 20 hours ago||If so, that doesn't bode well||
He will be getting a flurry of NFL offers pretty soon that he hasn't seen before...
|4 days 8 hours ago||You might want to get out more often OP. Just sayin'||
|4 days 19 hours ago||To say the "entire" fanbase wanted it is a bit extreme||
I'd guess most U-M fans were hardly aware of his wrongdoings. The crusade against Brandon, while righteous, was spearheaded by mgoblog, which still represents a minority of those who call themselves Michigan fans.
That being said, the tidal wave of bad press was surely getting to be overwhelming and the student outcries were strong. So there was really no other option.
|4 days 19 hours ago||talk about an argument to the extreme...||
The point is the guy was already here for three and a half years. U-M already put a major investment into him and now he's going to be thrown out on the street
|4 days 21 hours ago||This is part of the concern I have w/ the Frank Clark situation||
Not that he shouldn't have been kicked off the team and punished, but after he gets out of prison what's going to happen to him I wonder? Has he been expelled? Will he ever get a degree? Obviously his girlfriend is the victim here but what about the future? I don't think it's inconceivable that if left on his own the cycle will just be perpetuated and more people will suffer in the future just so that here in the present day we can entertain the belief that justice has been served.
|4 days 22 hours ago||There already is a different standard though||
a lot of these guys wouldn't have the slightest chance of attending college if they weren't playing football.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Sadly if anything it worsens our chances I think||
Harbaugh will want to prove this season's failures are just an aberration.
|5 days 19 hours ago||My prediction for this game is Harbaugh||
Let's be honest though we're going to need something to look forward to in the spring if this keeps up...
|6 days 6 hours ago||since you have amended your wrongs||
you will be spared the justice of the mgoblog gods. This time.
|6 days 6 hours ago||OP SUCKS! YOUR THREAD IS BAD, AND YOU SHOULD FEEL BAD||
All jokes aside I think this is a fine topic and a relief from the endless chatsports threads we had earlier. Alas, I can't comment much since I live a stone's throw from the heart of it all and have seldom been in touch with people over the last month who aren't Michigan fans but still care about sports to be plugged in on the situation.
|6 days 6 hours ago||On a side note though||
This is decidedly not off-topic, and for that you should be chastised.
|6 days 7 hours ago||Sure, it's semantics||
But Brian doesn't usually entertain bullshitters, so it's pretty significant that he's come out in support of this guy on Twitter and given him front page blog coverage twice.
|6 days 7 hours ago||Borges was hit or miss||
His gameplans ranged from brilliant (OSU 2013) to ludicrous (Iowa 2011). With Nuss, it was nothing but "miss" after Appalachain State.
Still, the Borges opposition was because no one wanted to believe that it was Hoke himself who was incompetent. The funny thing is, I do actually buy into the theory that Hoke wanted to retain Borges after 2013 but Brandon forced him to switch.

|6 days 8 hours ago||This would make sense||
I don't know how Brian or anyone else would verify it but it's definitely a possibility.
|6 days 8 hours ago||Me too||
Just who are you, not TOM BRADY!? How do I know you aren't stalking me this very minute?
