Spot on. Bad decision, whether it was coach or player, to go after the punt. And the momentum completely changed after that.

I'm glad they were passing. We couldn't stop the run at all. Passing was merciful.

Love reading these types of posts. Great analysis despite the overuse of the word 'mitigate.' ;)

Who is the leader to start at QB for UM next season?

At least MSU is back to winning games by luck, strange circumstances, or controversy.
That's how it used to be: Michigan winning most of the games with Spartan victories coming amid fortunate bounces and one in a million incidents. So far, in 6 games, Harbaugh and his staff coached these players (recruited under another coach and a mediocre, emergency quarterback) to come within 10 seconds of a win over a team that had outscored them 64-17 in the last 2 games.
I expect a Harbaugh-led Michigan program to fully restore the rivalry by winning 2 of the next 3 at a minimum.

Certainly glad Michigan won, but, let's not go overboard here.

Guy reveals about as much as Hoke in his pressers...gets nothing but love.

Dantonio didn't "go to extremes" to find motivational material. Mike Hart flat out gave it to him on national TV. Might as well have pinned it to the MSU locker room door.

While that may be true, you wouldn't know it from this write up.
That said - great snarky writing! :)
|1 year 1 week ago||I don't know||
It seems kind of hypocritical and juvenile to taunt MSU fans for citing recent football history exclusively when referring to the 'dominance' of their football program over UM...and then turn around and use the recent UM basketball record to rationalize today's loss.
MSU won the game. They deserve credit for that.

I'm assuming that the article could be summed up by saying MSU and OSU aren't afraid of a Harbaugh led UM? If so, he's right.

"...people are admitted to a University because they have a particular skill, are expected to hone that skill upwards of 40 hours a week, and also get a meaningful degree in something totally unrelated..."

This is the best we can do? Wasn't Green the top RB in the nation? At least one of them. Something tells me he'd be doing better at another school/coaching staff. :-/

Gout is no joke. If you don't have it, do NOT get it.

"Willie Henry took the brunt of a Michigan State OL to the side of his knee, just like Denard took late hits and Mike Martin took a dirty chop block long after things had been decided. As per usual, Michigan shrugged at it."

Michigan wins by 10.

Maybe it's just me, but, MSU has not looked like world beaters really. I certainly think michigan could keep it close and contend in the 4th if the kids play their best game.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Norfleet has been severely||
Norfleet has been severely underutilized and devalued as an offensive contributor at Michigan. As one of the only, if the only truly explosive player on offense (speed-wise, anyway), he should have a MUCH bigger role on every series. Can you possibly envision him being involved to this minimal degree as a player for A&M, Baylor, Oregon, Indiana, Alabama, et al?

I didn't love the Hart comments at the time. Still don't really. That stuff always seems to have a way of coming back around and biting you in the backside.

Just flipped past and saw the Block M on the screen. Stuck around to watch the 30 second interview (Brady looked nervous on camera, actually) and then, for some reason, listened while those 3 blowhards laughed at Michigan. Desmond just smiling through it all. Then I remembered why I don't watch pregame, halftime, or postgame shows and quickly changed the channel. I do not need those guys to tell me what they 'think' or describe what I already saw.
/thanks for listening

Some bad decisions being made down in Florida. However, maybe it will take the focus off Michigan a little bit. Sheesh.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||To open with App State and||
To open with App State and end with Miss State. That's rough. I was 1993-1997.
As a band member, I personally witnessed: Gary Moeller/Lloyd Carr transition, Remy Hamilton with the game winner at ND '94 (Michigan fans rushing the field in South Bend), Kordell Stewart, Biakabutuka rush for 313, Purdue '95 (the coldest I've ever been), Purdue '96 (very disappointing), Tyrone Wheatley, Charles Woodson, Virginia '95 (Driesbach-Hayes to complete the comback and win 18-17 in the 4th quarter...also, Lloyd's first game as head coach), Bowl losses to A+M and 'Bama, Bowl wins over Colorado State and NC State. 4 years sandwiched between Rose Bowls.
That was back when we thought 8-4 was kind of a bad season. I remember being disappointed that I never got to march in a Rose Parade. Somehow, the expectiations have fallen since then.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Right on||
I like the fact that you're not calling people out in this post. I remember all the accolades Hoke was getting in 2011 and did think it was odd that some of the same people were piling on the "fire him" bandwagon now.
Michigan's struggles this year are a giant mystery to me.
Getting shut out at ND? Losing to Rutgers? 2-4 start? 10 men on the field multiple times? RBs making bad decisions? QB play regressing at an alarming rate?
I did not see that coming. It's all very confusing.

That. Is. Hilarious.
That's Lion football.
