He doesn't hate us, we are a big part of his glorious money machine. He just wants to avoid any possible controversy and just rake in the dollars. He doesn't assign referees, and he sure isn't going to say that he or his underlings screwed up with referee assignments. What takes place will be done quietly and out of the view of the media and fans. Let's see what our AD is able to do. Bet you you will notice a few changes during the summer in terms of referees, their assignments in the fall, and how the coaches are allowed to rate them after games. It will all be on the QT.
|3 days 20 hours ago||How about we do something constructive?||
Take all the posts and video from both fan bases and use it to show that this group of referees were incompetent and should be fired. Yeah, the game is over, but the way to fix it is to bang on the league office's head to act to provide the entire conference with better football officials. The simplest explanation (incompetence) is usually the best one. That's why Michigan's coaches went through the film and made a video of all the missed and wrong and questionable calls. They understand where the real battle needs to fought.
|3 days 20 hours ago||WRONG!||
We scored a touchdown on the very next posession in large part due to the field posession we gained on that drive prior to the fumble. So, blame the interceptions, but you are dead wrong about the fumble as it turned out we got the 7 points anyway.

More likely he used a fake BUCKSTACHE!!!!!!!
|3 days 22 hours ago||QB and O-line||
QB and O-line were known to be our question marks this year, and they showed themselves at Iowa and at OSU. Tough to lose 2 games by a total of 4 points, but in year 2 of Harbaugh with 1 real recruiting class we are making huge strides. Let's see how those 2016 guys play as they fill in the holes in 2017.
|4 days 20 hours ago||We all are.....||
Look, sometimes you just get beat by your own mistakes and the referees. It happened. All we can do is go win our bowl game and finish 11-2. That's another step forward after 2015. Our weaknesses that were well known at the beginning of the season at QB and OL led to us losing 2 games by 4 total points. The QB will be back next year, the OL remains a question mark, RB depends upon a redshirt freshmen and the incoming class. The defense is assumed to have drop-off, but we don't really know how much. We get MSU and OSU at home, we get PSU on the road. We'll see how Harbaugh's first two full year recruiting classes fill in the gaps. Onward and upward.

Always most important in ranking teams, so B1G Champion will not pass us. Clemson loses, we're in. Book it.
|6 days 4 hours ago||Hokies||
Virginia Tech beats Clemson, they fall out of top 4. Ever hear of the verb Clemsoning? Blowing a game you should kick ass in. They're famous for it. Clemson has no top 10 wins, 3 top 25 wins. They drop below us if they lose.

NFL referees are NOT full time!

Not too soon at all, just the facts!
|1 week 4 days ago||Better Idea||
Let's start a Go Fund Me to to hire the right people we need to "explain" to the entire referee crew of the game what happens to those who screw us over........Bet we don't have that problem again!

The great thing is that it's his decision. He gets to make it based on what he thinks is most important and what his priorities are.

Sometimes those family things work out a lot better than the star ratings systems project....

My freshmen year at Michigan. We did not complete a pass in that game!

Itaewon district of Seoul (near US Army base) has bar called Nashville where everything is American. Definitely will have game on live.

Team needs to go out on the field in the snake pit and MAKE good things happen!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||3 Yards||
Extra points are put on 3 yard line in college, not 2 yard line.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||It's 2016||
Witness the events of the past week, no one and no advanced stats based on the past knows anything this year. It is CHAOS time. Beat Indiana, go to Columbus and play hard and smart, and anything can happen!

The injury was to Henne's throwing arm and he should not have played against OSU that year of 2007.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||OSU GAME AIN'T OVER YET||
We had a Murphy's law game at Iowa, and lost by a single point. OSU had a Murphy's law 4th quarter at PSU, and lost by 3. It happens. How many undefeated teams left now? Quite honestly, no one knows how the next games play out. Do we rebound? Do we fall flat on our face? Is the outcome of the OSU game versus Maryland important to how they or we will play come Nov 26th? Who knows? My prediction at the beginning of the year was 11-1, many people had us anywhere from 9-3 to 11-1 based on the schedule, talent, and our known inexperience at QB and concerns for LB and O-line.
To say this team does not have the toughness or talent to beat OSU is another meaningless statement. PSU did, and it was a shock to most all. NW did, and lost a squeaker at OSU. OSU's slaughter of bad teams means about as much as ours. Better to have our Murphy game at Iowa than at Columbus.
Now we will see what this team is made of, including its coaches and players. The reaction after a loss tells more about character and effort and heart than any Murphy's law game. We can only wait and see.

Which part of no politics did you miss?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Stop the Whining!||
Gee, we're 9-0 with a team kicking a?! and taking names and all we get is whining about too much focus on MSU or that our defense gave up some outside runs.

Do you have an Ohio concealed carry permit? A very handy thing to have when dressed in Michigan clothing in Columbus!
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Michigan Fingertip||
Michigan player got a fingertip on that field goal that hit the cross bar. Can't remember his name. Also, Gerald White fumbled down inside the Illinois 10 that day in the 4th Qtr.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||College Football Tiered Rankings||
I would suggest a much better and more logical way to tier teams is to use a more objective and relatively well proven measure of a team's performances that takes into account strength of schedule and scores and other relevant factors like the Sagarin ratings. It clearly shows the tiers through last week's games as:
LSU (likely to move)
Texas A & M (likely to move)
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Points Allowed||
Defenses take away things from offenses and to do that they therefore also have to offer up other things. The fundamental nature of the game as our defense seeks to dictate what the opponent's offense does and impose our will on them.

Shouldn't their uniforms be all orange?

Until 2:30 pm CDT, then ice water during game so I can focus! Go Blue!
