Have a running bet on dinner, loser buys and at least I got a hot dog when she lost at U-M here freshmen year. Instate tuition guys, and her choice.....
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Not a popular move||
With whom is this not a popular move? A few internet posters?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||It would appear||
That our coaches do not accept your premise about what the relevant question
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Harbaugh said||
That Speight had improved during the year in practice and had passed Morris. Said he started trusting him to throw the ball to the right man and make the right read.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Not what Harbaugh said||
At after game press conference, he said that Speight was his no. 2 QB, not Morris.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Speight||
He had three 3 and outs before winning drive, let's hope Rudock is healthy for next week.

Anybody please post it here for those of us who are Twitter challenged....

Note that he said no escorts, otherwise sounds like a typical 1980's party st Michigan to me.

Wear your t-shirt over your sweatshirt!
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Wrong||
Shane has been seen in practice by Harbaugh and Ruddock is the better QB based on the decision to start him and keep him in.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Ruddock||
What Harbaugh sees is Shane Morris at practice and that is why he plays Ruddock.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||REBUILDING||
We are still rebuilding, whether we like the word or not, and we have yet to determine when we will be rebuilt or if we will be rebuilt and whether our current coaching staff can rebuild us,. That is evident from the game, and now we have to see how the rest of the season pans out before we can say these kids are unmotivated and accept defeat so easily.

Make me think the seat is not as hot as portrayed by the BTN nor ESPN. Maybe just a little warm..........

|1 year 24 weeks ago||1997 UM vs PSU Game||
A stomping that put us at no. 1 at PSU, 38-6 and it was not as close as the score indicated!
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Sure we might be 8-4||
Thus, Hoke extension talk is way too early which was the main point. We have been mediocre overall since Bo died before 2006 OSU game, let's see how this season plays out. His players are now here on O and D and had some time, we need to see progress both in terms of performance on the field and wins.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||HOKE EXTENSION TALK TOO EARLY.......||
I think we ought to be waiting until the season is over before we talk about extensions for Hoke, the key is improvement from last year both on o-line and offensive running game. Defense to improve but not as much as offense. We are not considered top 25 material this year by many experts, so an 8 or 9 win season would be outperforming last year.
For those who want to replace Hoke, who do we get instead? Not sure I see anyone available that would take this job that would be an instant and obvious improvement. Plus, Hoke goes, and there goes our D coordinator for sure.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Hope for Progress||
Best we can do is hope for progress and health, I doubt we can become a Championship line in 1 year, but servicable with a mobile QB and some weapons on the outside and a screen game, maybe........All we can do is wait and see at this point, lots of work to be done between now and Appalachian State!

Found a way to win this game, would have lost it last year.......
|1 year 38 weeks ago||GR3||
Great play, and using Stauskas as a decoy was a smart strategy!
|1 year 42 weeks ago||What about Charles Woodson????||
We were 8-4 the two years before we recruited him, so it is only part of the equation.....
|1 year 44 weeks ago||No Train Wreck, but had some talent.....||
Must have, because we went 11-2 Hoke's first year, so if not a train wreck then what is the right phrase to say what Hoke inherited? A mediocre B1G program??? Sort of where we are right now.....
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Honestly, Rankings Matter more at end of season,,,,,||
We were ranked fairly high early on this season before our losses to Charlotte and ISU. My reality is that the top for this team is likely to be a 1st division finish in the B1G (top 5?) and a sweet 16 appearance given what we have seen so far this basketball year to date. Anything beyond that would be very surprising to me. However, we have some games coming against MSU, Wisconsin, OSU, and Iowa that will tell us whether we have improved enough to do better than this.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||When you coming to PSU Coach Schiano?||
Interesting comment, when do you think you will be coming to the B1G at PSU?
|1 year 46 weeks ago||I Root for Michigan and B1G In Bowls/Non-conference||
I just don't get this concept of rooting against MSU and OSU except when they play us or if a loss in conference helps us win a division title. Guys, that is the kind of thinking that prevails in places like Columbus and East Lansing where they remain focused on how we do instead of how they do. Like it or not, we are living through the tear down and rebuilding phases of Michigan football since Bo died in 2006. A little humility and grace might be a good thing to acquire, before we get all arrogant again (boy, I hope we get good enough to be arrogant again someday!).
But, if you have to define yourself by rooting against your big rivals, I guess that is your choice but not mine.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Fort Schembechler back in force....||
People are always trying to read more into what comes out of the Fort than what is said, and have been for any number of years since I can remember being a freshmen in 1976. They confuse non-full disclosure (i.e. They are not going to give us intimate details of all the goings on) with there somehow being a wall of secrecy to be breached. Instead, Hoke is who he is, says what he thinks, does not air his dirty laundry in public, and people try to analyze it like he is one of the old Soviet Union politburo members.
Like you, it is time to accept Hoke at his word, and judge him by both his words and deeds. There is no super secret agenda or special insight to be gained by parsing his every statement. Reality is that the team is 7-5, was very inconsistent over the year on offense and on defense, appears to be short of experienced talent and depth, and hopefully those issues are being addressed and fixed by the current staff. 2014 will be another year to see if the team improves and we have an upward trajectory or if we are doomed to B1G football purgatory for another 2-??? years. All we can do is wait and watch and hope!

That was the trip to play Oregon and not UCLA you are thinking about. And we were in that game with a shot to win.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Not Allowed to Diss Michigan QB's||
Once, back in 1984, while attending a Michigan vs MSU game, our boys and especially our QB at the time starting for his first year (Jim Harbaugh) were not playing very well on offense. So, I casually mentioned to my buddy and roomate at the time, that I wish Harbaugh would get dinged up because he is not playing well and I would like to see if our back-up QB would be better (Chris Zurbrugg). On the very next play, Harbaugh got his arm broke, and we wound up with Bo's worst season going 6-6. Therefore, I am not allowed to criticize or comment or make any statements regarding Michigan QB's during games whether in attendance or watching on tv! There's my superstition after destroying our 1984 season!

Watching all these multi-colored fields make me wonder when DB will be changing our field color to Maize and what corporate sponsor will be funding it? (Aflac, Dominos, who has maize as a color logo???)
Hint: Sarcasm here boys, sarcasm!
