At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”

|6 years 44 weeks ago||Well...||
I guess that was the whole point! They got it done though...
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Why?||
You never know what can happen.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Awww... I heare you!||
I have a 16 y.o. and I know what you mean. Well, at least your heart rate can relax a little for the suspense huh?
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Naw...||
I had fun, like I said... this of course dismissing mindless trolling like Mr. Maize4blue over here, we executed on turnovers and committed to the drive when we had the chance and that is what won us the game. The kids needed a faith builder, this was it. Great game, it was a nail biter but fun nonetheless. At least we beat a ranked team, that is what was the most important; trust me Tressell is taking notes.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||GoMIke!!||
Fantastic point! These young lads have to be won over to the cause. And RR is one more game closer to doing that. ESPN's Mike Mays made a similar commets to yours, with a huge win like this under their belt, their minds should be open to his plan more and he should get more results. This was a great win!!!
Second biggest come from behind victory in Michigan history... amazing win!
Hail to the victors valiant.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Ok, Einstein...||
when your comments become relevant to this specific thread, we'll raise an eyebrow to your cause. Until then, you're just hatin' .
|6 years 44 weeks ago||INTERCEPTION AND TD!!!!!||
Wisconsin botched a play and it was intercepted by Thompson... the game is now tied!
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Nice...||
Brandon Minor, scores off the Wiscosin Blitz!!!

You have more issues than Newsweek... I don't need a syntax lesson from bench troll. Go find another thread to spew on. You need to shut your mindless yap and respect opinions that may not be yours.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||You don't get the obvious do you?||
It is irrelevant that he was offered the job or not. Only that ESPN made a snub that was kinda off color. All else is just spurious lip dribble...

It's a blog... and open forum, i.e. you're supposed to respond.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Colin...||
grow some nads, really.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||First off...||
This is my column, I correspond in the manner I wish. I am well aware of the forum I am in - as to high horse because I depose stupidity... surely you jest. O' Reilly, you are funny... and that comparison is very telling. I am not insulting anyone... I respond to how I am responded too. You respond like an ass... you kicked in yours - pretty clear! This article was not a stat happy data dump... no one asked you to reply at all, if you don't like it... find another thread buddy, it's that simple.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Ok...||
here, try this on for size. Poeple don't usually have a problem with so-called "critiques" when that is what they are. Some people made sound and clear points and where answered as such. Most have been baby dribble... people can;t respond to that. It's madness... now think on that.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||"So we need to get rid of||
"So we need to get rid of the tradition of running zone left on the first play of every game? But on a side note - are you serious, you can't be serious right - cuz if you are serious you must be that Tuesday's the name (or whatever it was) who went on and on about how blood orgies are not a Michigan value. "
What the heck are you talking about? If you are trying to evoke the abstract to make the cogent... it works in the reverse - try being clear first.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||I am sorry...||
you are having trouble finding context... I will accept all resposiblity for that. There are winning ideas and loosing ones, we need get with, and stick to one's that are productive. It didn't think that was too difficult, but like I said... my bad if you didn't get it, and there was a typo.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Silence for you... is golden.||
Silence for you... is golden. You said absolutely nothing.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||60...||
Listen... No one loves Michigan football the way I do, but I must strike the same respectful cord you just did. Why? Because that's still subjective... there is always another form of team expression that may be viewed as more devoted. That is why I didn't call anyone out on that... I love the way you young folks here just love your teams, and don't like people talkin smack about your colors... speaking of which. I am totoally cool with that - Do you know how Michigan got it's Maize and Blue color?
I respect your commentary here just now... but you know there is no true love without accountablility. If you love your colors they won't run when the chips are down. However, if they make mistakes.. do we ignore them, you're not a friend if you do. So, food for thought on that one lol!
Hail to the victors valiant!!
|6 years 44 weeks ago||I may...||
may agree with that in part. I adore Lloyd Carr, but he was entrenched. Just because I went to school with Andy [not saying you made that point] doesn't have one thing to do with this performance or my credibility. Folks intejected that stuff without considering what the post was about. I digress... But I said it myself, we do lack depth but there are sevral reasons why we do, and only one pertains to anything any one coach can influence, the rest is the BCS... it has changed the game, period.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Are you...||
in school at all? do you know what literary prose is. The only people that have a problem with the post are those who never took the time to read, understand and reflect on what was said. What a flock of idiots here.... Don't ask me to verify what you cannot clearly understand. The article was about ESPN's calling Michigan out and nothing more.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||I know this...||
You don't know shit.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||All that was to say what?||
Isn't there a global warming over sight hearing you should be? With all that misplaced angst I'd behard pressed to see otherwise...
1. Conspicuously forced allusion to affluence and sophistication (Irish Coffee and Cuban cigar ritual) - check. Yeah, I do well.. and is my custom, what you have a problem with prose now?
2. Subtle racism ("kracka ass kracka southern bubba gump style option coach") - check. Racism - I am black... Eienstein, and I am sure you have idled your time away watching Chris Rock at some time, and to whose references where made in his stand up, so can the pie-pan deep social reverence, there are no points to earn here.
3. Poster who is silent until the first sign of struggle - check. since your point was not entierly cogent in the first place... I'll merely presume that low flying scud was meant to imply I was somehow one the ropes? Those cigars I enjoy smoking... cost money, and I make plenty of it. Because I know when to take careof business... sucks to be you right now.
4. Garbled, unintellgible conspiracy theory - check. were those new words you learned to imply something?
5. Attempts to assert their knowledge with claims to "insider status" ("I knew Andy Moeller" and "I almost red-shirted" (what does that even mean?)) - check. Did I open my mouth and make any scurrilous claims at all? Certainly not... just a brief background on who I am. I don't need to socre points with anyone... so can the crap hommie.
Yes, we are a 6" by 6" photo of a woman wearing a photo-shopped Michigan bikini as signature away from having a clean sweep. Well, you just make sure you clean up after yourself...
Give it a rest really.. your disarticulated bullet pointed malaise may have been important, but only to you.
Hail to the victors valiant!
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Marvelous...||
Joy? and your consensus governs what? Grow up puppy nuts... a true fan calls the cake by the cake. You frosting addicts have the nerve!
Lastly... I never attacked RR, I plainly stated why I feel we need to be eyes wide. Or do I need to spell it out for you too Behindstein.. here:
Not something I love broadcasting from the tree tops... it is mediocre at best and you know it. So spare me your remedial sideline fervor will you... you've impressed nothing but yourself [which apparently doesn't appear that hard to do]
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Quantum Err...||
"-Hence, what's the point of starting a thread reminiscing about him other than talking to yourself out loud? "
Though I understand your overall post, you must not have gathered the basic context nor the title of the artible. I was citing ESPN's lack of sensitivity to make such a brain dead comment. I didnt' go into analysis... so I didnt' need a "deeper" reason. My final comments on RR was hey I don't know enough of his successes that I have personally cared enough to investigate, but I do know what WV has done under him... but at 60-26 record is nothign to throw caution to the wind with. That was my point.. I dont' dislike him, he's done nothing to me... I never quiestioned this Michigan Man image.. which I thinkis all BS, there are traditions to adhere to that are mutually beneficial, and there are loosing traditions. We needed to sever ties with all loosing traditions and stick to what brings the glory back to the michigan name.
Hail to the victors valiant!
|6 years 44 weeks ago||There was no dig at RR, learn||
There was no dig at RR, learn the word nuance... I expressed concern that wasn't confident in what I know of the man. How is that a dig?
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Answer these questions...||
and then it will sort settle your own arguements before you even get started.
1. How do you know that Miles was formally offered the job?
That wasn't a question I raised, he was in consideration... that's all he needed to be. So the statement now can be: They offered the position to who would take it,and that seems to be the reality. You know how many Steve Spurrier nuts were on this blog last year clammouring for him, and that wasn't gonna happen. Miles and Rod... different situations. I never comments on the who or what... just that it was a cheap shot from ESPN. I dont' need to know Les Miles, and how is that releveant anyway? You are completely misunderstanding the context of the post.
Lastly, I am not concerned with who likes or dislikes Andy Moeller, what did that have to do with the price of tea in China? But specifically does lend quite a bit to credibility to who I know and where my cirecle of knowledge lies - though I never sought affirmation from you - and need dont' need it from you either, particularly if you can't even understand context.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Well...||
Well, I will say this. The Athletic department did it to themselves, they should have replaced Carr three years ago after loosing to OSU in the Rose Bowl. Our recruiting efforts were hindered even back then. But I think things will eventually be ok, I just don't know enough about Rod to trust much deeper. - so, like I said before ... this is where faith comes in.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||60||
Here's a rule to grow by. Get a life... for real. And learn to read the thread instead of partial responses then go on a rant. Don't' ever question the loyalty and knowledge of someone you don't' know, because you never know who they are. I went to Michigan, I attended high school with Gary Moeller's son Andy, we were in the same graduating class. I was going to red-shirt the team but ended up missing 6 weeks of school due to pnuemonia... so kindly tuck your pie pan deep Michiganism somewhere will you. True fans keep it real, and that means telling it like it is sometimes. But you wouldn't know anything about that would you. Don't ever dare attempt to consul me on your remedial definitions of fandom. I respect your being a fan but but be smart, your comments were not.
Hail to the victors valiant...
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Like...||
I was said. We aren't too deep, and there is no avoiding it. Being a realist [which is all I was saying] we have two more years of maybe 7-5 -8-4 type seasons until we get our wind under this spread offence and find talent that looks like it will work. I am impressed with what I see in Shavodrick Beaver, he is quick... athletic, and able to roll with the pocket. He'll integrate well into the Michigan spread. I am not hating but keepin' it real as they say.
|6 years 44 weeks ago||Wow...||
A little angry aren't we? Did you actually read the article? You're replies are completely disarticulated from the main theme or context of the article.
