Fact is if they were smart, they'd look in the mirror and realize it's they're own damn fault that they're not favored in this game. But sure, disrespect, right.
|4 hours 54 min ago||I don't agree||
I think our passing game is underrated, especially with the TEs and how Harbaugh seems to hold things back when he doesn't need them. Plus Rudock continued to show improvements each week. Our biggest strength (DL) matches their most injury-depleted and thus weakest spot (OL). Our run game is the one area they match us well in.

BYU may have been exhausted, but that's a really flimsy excuse for anyone to get beaten 31-0.
|5 hours 7 min ago||I think||
Cook will be pressured, it's not even a question at this point. So I can see him try to force a ball to a well-covered Burbridge at some point...I like Lewis' chances to get a pick at some point.
|5 hours 25 min ago||Thanks for posting||
Valenti to was super annoying to listen to last week (apparently M fans were overlooking Northwestern??? That was news to me). Well, Saturday shut him up real quick.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Exactly||
And id add..we've had these plays. Butt screen...Chesson jet sweeps...Smith's rumbling TD...etc
|6 days 5 hours ago||Also...complacency?||
What complacency? They haven't won shit yet. The team knows this. I highly doubt they become complacent because a bunch of writers think they might be good enough to play in championship games this year. They don't care about that. They care that they've beaten OSU and MSU once each in the last ten or so attempts.
|6 days 5 hours ago||True...||
But you know what? It's felt like everyone has tried to tear Michigan down any opportunity they got over last decade. I'll take the positive press for once, even if the "can they win the Big Ten?" Talk feels premature to us fans who have lived through the last 7 years of incompetence and are weary about such early season projections.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Yeah...||
I mean, at some point you have to actually win something to even HAVE a bandwagon. Then we can really talk about those who jump off the bandwagon. What do the Lions have? I mean, woo how they made the playoffs that one time. I had a foot on the bandwagon....then Drew Bree's scorched them and I took my foot off.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Deserve?||
Quite frankly I don't know why a fumbled ball in the Endzone is automatically a touchback if it goes out of bounds, and the other team gets it. Actually it's kind of arbitrary...had the ball gone out of bounds at the half yard line, the Lions retain possession, but in the endzone they do not. It's completely arbitrary when you think about it. Why should the other team just get the ball back without a clear fumble recovery? Just spot the ball where the fumble occurred, and play on. So "deserves" does not enter into the equation at all.
|1 week 5 hours ago||You also forgot||
The part where Seahawks player intentionally knocks it out the back of the Endzone, which is a penalty that would have given the Lions the ball on the 1 with 1st and goal. But naturally the ref didn't think that was flag-worthy. So really, this loss has it all, right on down to being jobbed by the refs and an obscure rule.
|1 week 1 day ago||I think he's gotten better at turnovers||
Yeah I know he had two on Saturday...he's got to do better holding onto the ball when he gets sacked (though that was a 4th down play so the impact was minimal). And I'm sure he wants to take back that across-the-body dangerous throw that led to the INT, even though it wasn't directly his fault that Houma bobbled the ball to an opposing defender.
|1 week 1 day ago||Especially||
Since it happened on what looked like a ho hum play. Thought oh maybe he just rolled his ankle...nope. Major bummer.
|1 week 2 days ago||I would say||
How bad Texas is. TCU barely beat Texas a Tech a week ago. Texas should have at the very least given TCU a game, even if they still lost by double digits.
|1 week 2 days ago||Some of it has to be Chesson.||
He has had opportunities but has yet to show any ability to catch a ball downfield. At least one of his attempts he got a hand on it and I'd argue should have been caught.
|1 week 3 days ago||Fucking refs||
Invalid fair catch signal my ass.
|1 week 3 days ago||Guess we shouldn't be surprised||
This team still has quite a bit of Brady Hoke in them. Especially on the road.
|1 week 3 days ago||Rudock doing his best Denard impression||
Nice. (Denard would have scored of course lol)
|1 week 3 days ago||Congrats||
You won the challenge and got 2 1-2 yards. Can we just play football now?
|1 week 3 days ago||Oh hi BTN2Go||
Nice of you to show me the fucking game finally.
|1 week 3 days ago||Ok seriously BTN||
What the fuck.
|1 week 3 days ago||BYU||
BYU is completely dominating the stat sheet. Problem is they cant get out of their own way...poorly timed penalties, bad turnovers, missed field goals, dropped TD passes.
|1 week 4 days ago||That's not true!||
They got to see Denver play last Monday.
|1 week 5 days ago||This||
The BTN is not dumb...Michigan games are its cash cow. It will be on TV, people. Relax.
|1 week 6 days ago||Now that I think about it...||
They should have included the play that got them over 100 yards for the game. And then flashed "OVER 100 YARDS!" On the screen. Clearly that was the highlight of the game for them on offense.
|1 week 6 days ago||He would have held a town hall||
And sent LochDawg to run it. And THEN completely ignore all student input.
|1 week 6 days ago||...||
....Well, they did technically shut out Michigan for a half. So there's that. I guess.
|1 week 6 days ago||What a difference a year makes.||
The season was totally and utterly over after that demoralizing Minnesota game and Morris debacle. I'm one of those who cling on till the last moment before jumping ship on a coach or team, and yet 5 games into the season it was totally clear Hoke was a dead man walking...conversations were had about what he needed to do to keep his job, but the odds of that were always extremely low given how the first 5 games played out. The rest of the season was sleepwalking. Losses were just shrugs. Wins were sludgefart wins. It was sad. The Michigan season was objectively DONE after one single conference game.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||They're not targeting him anymore!||
CJ actually bailed Stafford out many times. But...Stafford isn't getting him the ball nearly enough. What happened to "throw it up in the general vicinity of CJ and see if he can catch it"? Remember when Stafford's problem was throwin it to CJ too much? That's been the Lions best play the last few years...and right now CJ is being severely underutilized, all in the name of "respect the run".
|2 weeks 1 day ago||The Lions are so fucking dumb||
How the dick do you let a guy behind you on 4th and 1 with 13 seconds left in a half? I get that you want to defend the first down and prevent a FG attempt, but a TD is absolutely unacceptable in that situation. Take away that TD and the Lions had a real chance to win.
