"(I) think about 'The Lion King,' Simba gets hit over the head and (he's told) 'the past can hurt,' " Harbaugh said Monday afternoon. "'You can either run from it or embrace it and learn from it.'

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.

After all of the criticism. Support is appreciated and it appears, warranted.
|1 week 2 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?
|1 week 5 days 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.

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.

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.

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.
|3 weeks 1 day 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.
|3 weeks 1 day 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.

Corrected. More credit to Isaac then.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly.||
Glasgow got there really fast for a center. That was a beautifully developed play.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||That was proper running||
Isaac didn't have to wait for Glasgow; that was the play and that's how a running back is supposed to run. Wait, wait, wait, see the hole, explode into a higher gear past the D before they can see you coming. Smith is great fighting after contact, but he just runs full tilt at the line and often misses the hole as a result.
It takes patience to watch the line develop a lane, as well as trust in one's blocker to sit behind him and follow him in as he creates a path. That's what Isaac did perfectly on his run.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly||
We're going to be okay. No one was predicting a perfect season, and the running game is showing more than the last couple years, while Rudock seems more solid with fundamental quarterback skills than we've seen in a while.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Tired||
Tired of all the attacks on Rudock. He hasn't played badly enough to warrant so much criticism. Does anyone remember when Denard went down against Nebraska and Bellomy's ankle was messed up? Or when Devin was pulled last year and we got even worse?
So far Rudock has to solve the interceptions before Big Ten play, and we likely won't beat MSU or OSU without developing a deep threat, but those things can improve, and Rudock has still played pretty well, not great, but serviceably. Regardless, let's give the new Wolverine some time to join the family and get comfortable in the offense before we turn on him. He's our guy, and he can win for us. I for one am going to support our quarterback rather than rip him after three games on our team.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||That's not true||
Rudock is accurate with short throws, especially slants over the middle or routes to the sideline. He is very inaccurate at the long ball, consistently overthrowing.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Yes but,||
What was the method of gathering these players for the study? That's crucial to reliability. If they asked for football players who thought they had CTE to join that's going to have a drastically different outcome from a random sampling. And of course opt-in might* cause more CTE-concerned/prone players to agree to the study over those who doubt they have any symptoms.
How did they come up with the 79% of all football players, contrasting the 96% in this study?
While I think CTE is a serious issue, I'm skeptical of this particular study until I know their methods.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Frankly,||
I'd rather not be named on their trophy. A random northern team lost to them rather than Michigan. I only want to see Michigan in win columns. I think this is their loss; they didn't think this one through.
|4 weeks 18 hours ago||Well,||
Madonna dropped out of Michigan, I think after her first year. So maybe he isn't prima donna or pre-Madonna. Maybe he's Madonna.
|4 weeks 19 hours ago||Maybe...||
We don't want to crucify every person who comes through the program. Brandon and Hoke and Borges filled our quota for quite some time. Geez, we're two games into Harbaugh. Support the team.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||In contrast,||
You are worth wasting a point on.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||If you watch it closely||
Chesson stutter-stepped just slightly a couple steps before the ball got to him. That might have been the difference between a reachable ball for a lay-out and what we saw. It seemed to me last year (or was it two years ago?) he had some trouble judging distance with his speed on some throws. I'm not totally sold on this one being as bad as it looks on Rudock.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah||
We did that the second time. Wife didn't like the recovery time, of all things. We're trying again natural in a couple weeks. Pray for me brother!
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Better yet||
Just wait until you've seen your first level four tear (from vagina to rectum) as your wife gives the miracle of birth by literally pooping a child through your sacred place.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Gonna say it||
Schuetz comes across a lot better than NU from this. His response is all class, and though defensible, their firing seems a bit petty. He wrote it nine freaking months before he had any idea he'd be offered a job by them. Who isn't critical of their school in a fan-like way at times?
This is unfortunate, but I think he proves himself in his exit. I'd rehire after I hear how graciously he's taking it.

Sounds fun! Might be a serious weekend. That would be a month tour for me.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks!||
I'll add that to the list to try.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Any other recommendations?||
I'll be in TC this weekend. I moved to Florida ten years ago, so this is guy's weekend away before kid three.

They need someone to out him on a major site before it'll get any real traction. 2014-2015 full circle.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||I tried to stop people from booing||
All but once. When Hoke put Morris back in after he wobbled off and seemed to lose consciousness for a moment, I boo'd. Loudly.
