That's about it. Kansas is freakishly athletic, yet freakishly undiscipined. Florida and Kentucky are good. Trying to beat Purdue for a 3rd time in a row would be worrisome.

|5 weeks 5 days ago||You are correct||
and I did think about adding him to the LEGIT list, but I did not because his sample size is so small. But yes, it can be argued that he is yet another 3pt weapon. Just a remarkably good shooting team.
I loved our big men in years past, but many of them were a solid NO WAY from beyond the arc.
And I agree with Beilein that our bigs still MUST have a solid and respectable ability to score inside the paint to keep defenses honest.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Michigan shooters:||
Has M ever been this deep with solidly LEGIT 3pt shooters?
Irvin? NOW LEGIT.
And now that this team pairs their offensive prowess with cohesive and tenacious defense it is REALLY fun to watch!
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Louisville's KenPom rankings are:||
Oklahoma State is:

And Michigan's defensive ranking has been soaring upward.
Remember, to shut down Michigan's offense you have to be both athletic AND disciplined.

Would M still be the worst 10-8 team of the the 3-way (M-MSU-IA) tie?
|8 weeks 4 days ago||It will be a "must win" at home for NW?||
I expect that newly minted FT-against record to fall. The coin-flipping penis refs will insure NW gets the win.
At least figure skating ADMITS their "sport" is a subjective beauty contest run by judges.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||The turning point in the game was this:||
When Happ set a legal, but unnecessarily dangerous, pick and absolutely DESTROYED Walton. Up to that point Michigan was playing a polite, pretty lackluster game. They were content to take outside shots and play passive post defense.
Michigan's players saw their senior team leader leveled by that rough pick and were like "Oh, it's ON now MFers!" They played with a newfound piss and vinegar the rest of the way and that made all the difference.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||They're 6-6||
The above 4-2 scenario gets them to 10-8.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Walk-on DB from 86-89||
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Great hearing about Carlitos||
What a blast from the past! My brother was on the Michigan football team at the same time as Carlitos and I remember him telling me about this "total beast" that was wasn't even a starter (but should be!) and the general public doesn't even know about this guy. My brother said that Carlitos didn't get the playing time he deserved. That was back when the scholarship limit was over 100 and there were All-Americans riding bench.
Thanks for the update!

|16 weeks 11 hours ago||JUSTICE was served||
for all of our seniors who got screwed out of the win on Nov 26th. Michigan should've won the B10 and been in the playoff.
Remember: FSU played @Clemson ina barn buner down to the final seconds. Michigan beats FSU if they had Peppers
Ergo, I'm convinced Michigan would've played Clemson tough tonight.
The Buckeye frauds exposed indeed. And embarrassed the Big Ten. Thanks a lot.
Memo to Delaney: Maybe don't let your crappy refs gift undeserving teams into the playoffs where they will get summarily exposed and embarrass your conference. SMH.
|16 weeks 17 hours ago||Whoa there, I'm not being a hater||
I'm not questioning or attcaking Pep! I am saying it seems like MAYBE Harbaugh was unhappy with the late curveball and probably didn't handle it well.
FACT: Peppers wanted to stay on the sideline but was sent away.
Maybe don't shoot the messenger? Just thought this would be an interesting topic but CLEARLY it is still too soon and raw to discuss this...
|16 weeks 17 hours ago||I am NOT saying Pep faked it!||
I am only saying that Harbugh sending him to the pressbox was weird. Maybe Harbaugh was suspicious or upset about it?
|16 weeks 17 hours ago||Sorry to upset so many people around here||
I just think it's an interesting decision/reaction by Harbaugh that you NEVER see a coach make and it raises some eyebrows.
|16 weeks 17 hours ago||Bob Wojnowski||
via twitter: "...Said Harbaugh told him to go to the booth instead of sideline."
|16 weeks 21 hours ago||Dude, WTF. Versus MSU this year||
he was a monster. Wildcat TD, two HUGE 4th down stops, broke Lewerke's leg, other great runs, good returns, the PAT return...
HE was the difference maker in that game.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||My point is that we lost 33-32||
not 6-3. The reason we lost all 3 games this year was due, in part, to O, D, ST, and coaching.
Don't put that much blame on just the O coaches.
Bottom line, we didn't have guys that make plays in the clutch.
But if the question is, what element of the team was most CONSISTENTLY underperfrpming in the crunch? (which led to the losses)
It is the OL. And 2nd is not close.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Michigan just scored their most points per game since 1905||

beat me to the punch. I will buy it sight unseen.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||YES the 2016 team is better than 2006 team||
The 2016 defense is more legit than the 2006 defense, which got seriously exposed down the stretch. The DC is also superior to Ron English.
The 2016 offense scored way points more than the 2006 offense, so that side of the ball was better, too. The 2016 offense scored the most PPG of any Michigan team since the 1904 Fielding Yost team. I mean.. WOW!
And the offensive coaching of Harbaugh/Drevno/Fisch is superior to Carr/Debord.
So yeah, I say the 2016 team is HANDS DOWN better than the 2006 team.
The 2016 team got royally screwed out of the win in Columbus, the 2006 team did not.
This Michigan team should be 12-1 and in the playoff right now if not for those fucking refs.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||Hmmm. Tell me more about these||
"...hosts and escorts."
|20 weeks 3 days ago||It's all about DJ Wilson||
In our surprisng NYC wins he was a revelation.
In our surprising, bad losses he was a ghost.
The other players are known entities.
DJ Wilson was the pleasant surprise. If he turns out to be a mirage then this team fades back into mediocrity.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||But it's even worse that that!||
Those bullshit predictable wildcat plays helped wear him out. You cannot tell me Peppers wasn't GASSED on the last drive and in OT. He was unable to make the explosive open field tackles he normally makes.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Correct||
The OP's assumption is, frankly, pretty irresponsible.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||By my own own calculations,||
...it looks like forward progress was about 3-4 inches short of the 15-yard line.
I used the same geometric approach as you did. However, the biggest problem is that there are visual obstructions to critical information. So some assumptions need to be made. Your magnification of the pixelated view is much too inaccurate and should not be used.
It appears your assumptions slightly favor Ohio State/the refs.
If the call on the field was that he was short I would have a hard time with your analysis.
In my opinion, your conclusion should be that it was "too close to call and therefore the field ruling stands" NOT that he made it by a few inches.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Hey if Jabrill wants to come back...||
I'm not going to be upset.
Listen, Lewan came back. Jake Long came back. Henne. Harbaugh. Perry. Woodley. Graham. The list goes on and on.
Sure, if he leaves after his redshirt sophomore year because he will be drafted in the 1st round then I absolutely don't blame him.
But let's not PUSH him out the door! He's not a china doll.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||The accuracy of the blue line in this "study" is suspect.||
Also, the assumption that the green line is the correct "vertical" from this camera angle is suspect.
However, this does support the fact that it was very, very close and the call on the field could not be reversed.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Actually||
It was the 2 INTs that gave them their only TDs in regulation. And the offense gained all of FIVE FRICKIN YARDS in the entire 4th quarter.
That the D held them to only a FG at the end was nothing short of heroic.
I'm sure the OL are great guys and tried their hardest, but that's where the game was lost (other than the BS officiating of course).

|50 weeks 4 days ago||Totally agree with you man||
This is an eff you by Spike. Not cool.
I love Spike a little bit less for him choosing Purdue, when he knew full well that the one thing Beilein asked is that he please find a landing spot out of the conference.
I hope he appreciates those two free surgeries that Michigan paid for, and will now repay Michigan by trying to beat them. Jeez, Spike. Very undude of you.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||thank you, sir||
This was the point I was trying to make but you did it way better than me.
I was not trying to crap on Ace. He is a lovely person.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Ace, I'm surprised you list Teske at 6-11 and 210 lbs||
That height is at least a year old. He is now listed at 7-1 in every Ohio publication that I have seen.
He is also definitely heavier than 210 lbs since his weight in early 2015 was 215 lbs (when he was still 6-11).
Since that time he has since grown 2 inches and would assume he now weighs at least 225 lbs.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Agreed. The mosty charitable take on the Max thing...||
is that Beilein was being incredibly selfless, and forcing Max out of a less than ideal situation at Michigan so he could go find more PT elsewhere.
However, I think Beilein was surprised and disappointed when that "elsewhere" became Indiana. That stung him.
I choose to believe the above theory that John Beilein cared so much about Max that he was willing to risk some bench depth this year. And yes, it bit him in the ass.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||that could really be the case||
because Simpson is a totall badass. If he stays healthy we'll be in good shape.
My problem is that after seeing Walton this season, I'm wondering if a 100% healthy Spike isn't just a better player. Better shooter hands down, better passer, equal or better ball handler, way less turnover prone, and a better floor general. Walton used to have an edge on driving to the hoop and scoring, but that part of his game is GONE BABY GONE.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Not sure if you're doing the "funny spelling" schtick, but||
the word laser does not have a z in it.

|1 year 6 weeks ago||Put down the crack pipe||
A win vs Indiana gets M in with 100% certainty. 100 percent. Period.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Good points. And guess what?||
The only schools with more Big Ten Football Championships than Illinois are Michigan, Ohio State, and Minnesota.
Grange, Nitschke, Butkus, Grabowski. Yeah they do have some history to build on.
If Lovie can recruit then he might be able to do what Alvarez and Tiller did.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Ohio State's win today REALLY hurts||
They got their 11th conference win. I think this means M will need to post an 11-7 conference record to make it in. There is only so much room on the bubble. Being behind OSU in the standings instead of tied with them would end up dooming M.
This LeVert injury has really damaged a promising season.

Saban and Miles and other coaches run off lots of players. My concern is, will Harbaugh be joining their ranks?

|1 year 10 weeks ago||"Dude" I've been here longer than you, since 2004||
and we've ALREADY have the attrition you are referring to:
Richardson, Green, Strobel, Taylor-Douglas, Gant, Henry, and Cole. That's 7 guys who had eligibility remaining. And we still need 4 more guys to go.
That means we will have had 11 guys leave with elgibility remaining. And nobody is worried about the bad press, eh? Just me, okay.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||You haven't looked at it closely enough||
There are 10 5th year senios. 9 of them are valuable assets that we do NOT want leaving:
Bars (he gone)
It could be argued that those 9 are all starters at some point. You don't give the handshake to starters.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||All it takes is someone to say he's getting "run off" the team||
Sure, I can think of 4 guys right now that are dead wood (Reon Dawson, Jaron Dukes, DaMario Jones, and Brady Pallante) but is one of those guys going to give the Sharps, Rosenbergs, and Geensteins the ammo they need to drag Harbaugh through the mud all over again?

|1 year 13 weeks ago||HEY MISTER!||
Hating MSU is NEVER weird.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Better helmets won't solve the real problem||
The real problem is the violent changes of direction and/or stoppages caused by impact. Physics will tell you that your brain keeps moving unitl it sloshes up against the inside of your cranium. That is what causes CTE, which is the bigger problem at hand.
Unless a magical helmet is developed that can prevent sudden changes of direction/stoppages then this awful, awful problem won't go away. (Think along the lines of oppositely charged magnets, which if they weren't so damn heavy that might be an intriguing option.)
Ironically, one way to cut down on all of these violent head impacts is to REMOVE helmets from the game altogether. This would cause the players to voluntarily attempt to avoid violent head contact, like they do in rugby. Of course, as was discovered about 100 years ago, an accidental, violent head impact without a helmet can kill someone. So in the attempt to prevent cranial fractures, we unwittingly contributed to the development of CTE.
What a damn sad state of affairs.

WE'RE STILL PAYING OFF THE LAST EXPANSION!
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Wow.||
|1 year 19 weeks ago||It is evident||
that Jim Harbaugh has a reputation as the ultimate Head Coach Builder. Up and coming coaches from all over the country jump at the chance to apprentice at the feet of The Master.
Spend a year or two or three learning from Harbaugh and you are ready to be a successful head coach.
My God, this might be Harbaugh's finest quality. We will NEVER be without a top-notch staff of assistants!
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Yes those are beyond cool... and all the way to UGLY||
Those helmets look ridiculous. Save the airbrush for your custom van.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Yes, I noticed that hold, too.||
It was an unnecessary hold by the WR, but big plays get called back by dumb penalties that occur behind the play all the time. We could've used a flag there, but M was never going to stop OSU with their idiotic passivity, so it's not worth getting upset about the missed holding call.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||I wonder how much of Mattison's fingerprints...||
are on that gameplan for OSU. His defenses were equally inept at stopping the read option. He may have talked Durkin into staying the course.
Still does not excuse Durkin for that damn debacle. OSU could've hung 56 on our ass if they had wanted to.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||In that picture of Greg Jackson who is #48 in the background?||

Hoke wanted Harbaugh to squash the speculation and his intermediaries sniffing around while he still had the job. I think Hoke believes Harbs undermined him a little bit, so no way he's coming back and working for him.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Eh, his process stunk...||
but Sailboat Bill got lucky as hell and still managed to land THE hottest young coach at the time, bar none.

that SNL parody commercial for the "Happy Fun Ball." If anyone remembers that, the funniest part was the numerous foreboding disclaimers and warnings at the end of the commercial. A couple of them in particular seem pretty apropos:
Happy Fun Peppers may suddenly accelerate to dangerous speeds.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Peppers.

it is just an ankle sprain, nothing serious
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Simmer down, Betsy||
he doesn't need your standing ovation because he's made it perfectly clear to every Michigan fan that he is totally fine and not the least bit bothered by what he did.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Thank you||
for the best response in this whole thread
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Good one||
made me LOL
|1 year 25 weeks ago||You are SPOT ON||
but hey, let's give that dope a standing ovation at the next home game.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||Here's me:||
Reading the first few words. Okay, what? Is he setting up his Hot Take? Oh.. wait a minute...
LOLOLOLOL!! Well played sir!!!
|1 year 26 weeks ago||Hey calm down||
I never said I want him to crumble under it.
I simply said I want him to appear more SAD about what happened because I am also very SAD about what happened.
I don't think this sentiment of mine deserves to be shouted down. I never called him a name or wished ill upon him.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||Ok, I will say it:||
I wish he sounded at least a LITTLE BIT upset about his huge fuck-up that snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Ah, mistaken as a Hearst heir||

|1 year 31 weeks ago||No, it wasn't||
He's from the Chicago suburb of Lemont.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Game DAY?||
|1 year 34 weeks ago||This season||
I am going to get so damn emotional this season. I'm already tearing up just reading this post!
I need to prepare my wife and kids that they are going to see a grown man openly weep with joy.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Great idea||
I think that would excellent
|1 year 35 weeks ago||I've got another one:||
Holtz took the Gerry Faust TIRE FIRE and won a National Title in Year 3.
Fuck off, Brady Hoke. Fuck. Off.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||bleh, so pretentious||
Or how about you ease up on the pretentious use of language? I soon as I read that (incorrectly used) latin word I just KNEW this post wasn't written by Brian. Thankfully, that is not his style.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||I LOVE IT!!!||
I want my chest vibrating from the roar. I LOVE that feeling!
Quite frankly, I feel it's one of the main reasons to go to the game instead of watching it on TV.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||You have a point, but...||
going from Gerry Faust to Lou Holtz was pretty big.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||alluding||
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Thanks, bud||
It was Door #1. Irish whiskey for the win. Still like that song though.
Woo baby, this board is mean.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Read it again: the Steam song is being used by the ChiSox||
Reading comprehension: get some.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||the White Sox have been playing that song for decades||
I like idea that HOW YO LIKE ME NOW could be song Michigan Stadium adopts as their own.
Plus it's got way more James Brown style funky awesomeness to it.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Feel free to call Harbaugh a kindergartner to his face||
That oughta end well.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Football isn't a fashion show||
If they serve a purpose to help further the goal of championships then by all means put them on there!
Frankly, I'm pretty irritated by those who blather on like the sky is falling about a sticker. Unbunch your panties and find something important to worry about.
|2 years 3 days ago||OSU is so obsessed with Michigan||
I am absolutely convinced that they saw our record attendance and considered it an absolute necessity to top it. They've NEVER gotten 99k for their spring game!
They're keeping a very close eye on everything Harbaugh does and we have their full attention.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||To me it looks like a sarcastic smile||
Like "wow we have a long way to go..."
|2 years 4 weeks ago||To echo comment on previous post re: stickers...||
It isn't a goddamn beauty contest out there on the football field.
Our new, great head coach thinks the stickers are pretty damn important. His opinion on this subject is better than yours, because EVERYTHING he does has a calculated purpose in order to win football games. I won't pretend to know better than him or Bo and neither should you.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Well, c'mon he was probably partying to 3 or 4 am||
which still feels like a part of Saturday night. Then he took the test 6 or 7 hours later.
But yeah, he doesn't have his priorities straight, that's for sure.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||13 beers over the course of a Saturday afternoon/evening||
isn't a crazy amount of beers even for me, who weighs 100 pounds less than Glasgow.
Still, it was stupid and irresponsible of him to be drinking while on probation.
Maybe he's just like his former coach who "tried to drink every beer in Muncie, Indiana."
|2 years 5 weeks ago||AMEN!||
This isn't just a friendly game of checkers and it isn't just for fun.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||IF this kid ends up at Michigan||
and we don't play Flight of the Valkyries when he enters the game I am going to be very disappointed.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||You know||
|2 years 6 weeks ago||You have no idea what Malzone's ceiling is||
and neither do I.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||my God, I gave you too much credit||
you actually are a pretentious prick.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||/s... you know it's possible||
for football cleats to look good AND fucntion properly! Those traits aren't mutually exclusive.
So let's have both. That would be good.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Well now I'm going to have to send the AD an e-mail too||
stating that "we the fans" kinda like the big mesh look of the old school 70's-90's jerseys and that the pants should be a true pale yellow MAIZE matte color like they were for decades, and NOT shiny.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Oh, I objectively agree with what you're saying||
I just hope our NEW upper management agrees with the opinion of the upper management at Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, Auburn, Florida State, and USC.
Those programs think that UNIFORMZ add no tangible benefit. Their 11 National Titles in the last 16 years seems to indicate their opinion has merit.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||don't some people eat McDonald's because||
they think it tastes good?
Your post come off as pretty arrogant and elitist. Let's not feed the M stereotype.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||My "privilege" comment was sort of tongue-in-cheek||
If the program says "this is what we want to look like" then fine, whatever, we'll agree to disagree.
But it irritates when the AD trots out "well the players want it" as a reason. There are countless organizations that wisely reserve any decisions on their outward appearance to the public for upper management to make.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||There is a reason you need to get off my lawn.||
It is because it looks NICER than your lawn. Nobody is trampling all over it, like your lawn.
My lawn has no neon yellow weeds. And no stripey crabgrass.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||It's like someone at Adidas asked their designers...||
to design the very most ANTI-HARBAUGH shoe possible.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Can we please be done with "because the players like it"?||
Why is input on uniform decisions one of their privileges? That's not a player privilege at Alabama or USC (and the list goes on).
Get that Brandon-era stink the hell off our program.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||sorry, hate 'em||
Clowns and debutantes wear yellow shoes.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Sweet Harbaugh let this be true||
Nothing more bad ass than solid black cleats with white socks. CLASSIC!
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Harbs wearing THAT hat is no coincidence||
The fact he purposely sought out that specific hat makes me love him even a little bit more than yesterday. Whew, it's dusty in here.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||^^YES^^||
Really need to dump the word "return." Regardless of how JUB intends it, the fact is that it comes off as presumptuous and that doesn't serve M well here.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Zing!||
remembering that quote makes me think that kid doesn't belong on team HARBAUGH.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||That isn't a rule of language at all||
Santa Claus, Yoda, Frodo...
Capitalizing the word "Dumbass" is optional.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||He would be UGA's 30th recruit||
How is that NOT oversigning!!!
|2 years 10 weeks ago||This bugs me. Making career decisions based on the weather||
is a red flag. It just is. Many of the top companies in my chosen field.are in the Northeast. I would be a damn fool (and soft) to eliminate them because of the weather.
In the grand scheme of things, do you aspire for greatness or not?
p.s. The weather gets really shitty outside in New England, Green Bay, New York, Philadelphia, Seattle, Buffalo, Cleveland, Chicago, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, KC, Denver, and Washington.
That represents nearly 50% of your dream jobs, tough guy.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||Ok, old man||
you don't get the reference. No need to be literally ignorant then insult others.

Zordich to join Michigan staff
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – WYTV Sports has learned that valley native and Youngstown State Safeties/Co-Special Teams Coordinator Mike Zordich is leaving the Penguin program to take over as Safeties Coach at Michigan.
He joins fellow valley native and Boardman graduate D.J. Durkin who was recently hired as the Wolverines’ Defensive Coordinator.
Zordich spent twelve seasons in the NFL, five each with the Eagles and Cardinals, and two with the Jets. He also served as Safeties Coach in Philadelphia in 2011 & 2012.
The former Penn State All-American was contacted over the weekend by Michigan Head Coach Jim Harbaugh, and met with YSU Head Coach Bo Pelini before deciding to leave for Ann Arbor.
Sources tell WYTV Sports that Zordich was in Ann Arbor Tuesday finalizing his contract.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||I will be shocked||
if Bellomy gets to stay for a fifth year.
He needs get his diploma and a firm handshake.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Wooooo!||
Hail to the Victors!!!!!!
|2 years 14 weeks ago||It's gross how biased they are||
I'm about to mute these two fuckers.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||So M scores an icredibly beautiful goal||
and the fucking announcers just say it was bad defense by Minny.
Fuck these guys.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||I know right?||
WD, I was saying the exact same thing. These fucking announcers are so biased is this the fucking MN feed?
|2 years 15 weeks ago||Really, who says po-TOT-o?||
If they pronounce it like that then you really should call the whole thing off.
