We're beating real teams here. It's like everyone forgot we looked better than MSU in our fluke loss.
|4 days 10 hours ago||Who else?||
Who else deserves to be top four besides Alabama? Not Clemson or Notre Dame. They'd get smoked by Alabama too. So basically, only Alabama deserves to be top four.
|5 days 17 hours ago||Been watching Bolden||
with my former team-leading tackler brother who was a linebacker in high school. He's been breaking down plays for me and showing me how BAD Bolden was all year. This isn't an off day. It's exposure. Brian's finally saying it too.
|5 days 17 hours ago||Appreciated, but no||
Bolden's problem isn't that he's too slow, it's that he's not good at a linebacker's only essential skill: he doesn't know where to be as a play develops. He consistently puts himself in the wrong place, fires the wrong gap, just can't find the football game on the field.
|1 week 8 hours ago||Actually,||
Actually, they did win that game because of Tebow. I watched it. He passed through the Steelers like they were a sieve for an amazing comeback at the end of the game.
|1 week 2 days ago||If we beat OSU, Iowa, and PSU||
We SHOULD jump a Notre Dame that wins out. Might not happen, but beating two undefeateds at the top of college football really should trump the two versus one loss difference.
|1 week 2 days ago||The problem is||
The linebackers were also out of position a lot. Sometimes firing the wrong gap.
|1 week 4 days ago||Although||
It's at least partly Wormley's fault. He'd take off to the inside then couldn't make it back to the outside to seal the edge. As an edge defender, whether there's a little hold or not, which to me it looked like the defender's hands were inside his shoulders but gripping him, it's his job to contain the edge at all costs. Just infuriating to see him let IU outside again and again.
|1 week 5 days ago||Is Rudock Tom Brady?||
Quarterback controversy in his last (or only) year, mass fans complaining and asking for another quarterback, after a game like tonight, the head for leadership and the steel factor make me question... could Jake Rudock be this generation's incarnation of Tom Brady?
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Double post||
Double post. First in five years. I feel initiated. Finally.

And I won't wade into a debate about LTT because I don't see the facts clearly. But I thought rjking was taking up a stand on an issue of women being exploited, which is underrepresented in this society in my mind, rather than trying to trash LTT.
The "despicable" comment is presumptive, at least until the facts emerge, so that I understand. I think restraint is the better part of fairness.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||We all have to let this take its course||
without judgment, so I'm with them and now you on that. May all receive restraint and the presumption of innocence until proven otherwise in this.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||I know||
It's a loaded word, and really should be only applied to people who are being killed are maimed for their faith. I almost edited it for that reason. But denigrating someone for his religious affiliation irks me. Point received.

Is a balanced, respected poster on here. Debate a point if you want. But the level of attacks against a respected poster with a long history of insightful additions to this blog are out of hand.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Persecuting a pastor||
Willing to stand up for his convictions enough, whether applicable in this case or not, to defend a woman in a situation in which they have often been abused?
This makes you a good person?
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Oh man||
The masses spoke? You listened to the wrong masses. Don't link.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed||
That's worth some credit, regardless of opinion.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Snowflake threads||
They may clear up the site post game, but they make the board post game a lot less entertaining. Those two or three hours of seeing tons of new posts on the board were pretty interesting. Now, even after a controversial game, the only news on the board is Snowflakes: Coaching, Snowflakes: Offense, Snowflakes: Defense.
I get that for efficiency. But people come here to talk Michigan football more than any other sport. Might as well step away if reading it is too much for you.

This is just too important to me, and it shouldn't be. But I have enjoyed the highs. Maybe I'll spend my Saturdays in more of life and less of football.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||It's funny||
This is exactly how I feel. I went through the same thoughts. If I've learned anything, maybe this'll be the last you see from me for a while.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Rankings||
The Big Ten is ranked higher in the AP poll right now than the SEC. Each have five teams and ours are higher ranked overall.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||It's not too much||
After all of the criticism. Support is appreciated and it appears, warranted.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||That is the best||
That is the best cool story bro I've seen seamlessly worked into a post. Who's got it better than us?
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I love noon games||
Tailgating woes aside, rolling out of bed and watching Michigan play is better than wasting all day wishing I were watching Michigan play. And that's why I love noon games. But there's no doubt a special energy enervates night games.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Logged in to downvote||
I don't care what your point was or whether you intended disrespect, but I will compulsively downvote anyone who uses the phrase "dead football coach" to refer to Bo.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Correction||
This should be a threading informing us if they actually did it, not telling people to do it. Just like recruit threads should be put up when there is actual recruiting information, not "Hey guys, has anyone heard anything about recruit X?
Otherwise we show up expecting to get information from someone who knows more than us and instead get peppered with questions or suggestions by someone who actually knows less than us. And that's no way to click a thread.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Thank you for this thread||
Rudock was a lot better than adequate; he was great yesterday, and we won dominantly because of it. It's the "fans" who criticize him because he isn't a Heisman front runner who are adequate, at best.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Nice, light-hearted way to do this LSA||
As a request for the mods and possibly our fearless leader to consider, could we start to clamp down on the personal attacks on Rudock? There has been a minority rabbling to spell Rudock with additional "D's" according to the level of his perceived incompetency.
Gerg was funny about a coordinator, but this is a student-athlete. Could we Bolivia "Ruddock" users and "Rudddock" and "Rudddddddock" users when they clearly aren't misspelling it, but trying to smear a student athlete using his name, rather than constructively analyzing his game?
Or at least mandate from the top that that isn't cool?
Edit for clarification: I'm not talking about people making fun of the fact others can't spell his name properly, but a small faction of commenters who have proposed he is Ruddock when he screws up, like Gerg.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Go away||
Before you start inserting curse words in our Quarterback's name. I feel the same for people who add D's as a statement of his ineptitude. Gerg vs Greg was fine. But this isn't a Social Security-aged man with a beaver. He's a student-athlete.
Show him some support. This blog is awesome. Brian and Ace and their writing are awesome. But some of the fans around here are starting to suck.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Welp||
Corrected. More credit to Isaac then.
