|2 hours 18 min ago||Utah 17 - Michigan 13||
This is a tough first game.
|7 hours 52 min ago||Jim Tressel has done a lot of good things for a lot of people...||
...regardless of what happened with tattoos and benefits at YSU, etc. He's probably my favorite non-Michigan coach, which I realize is not a popular opinion in these parts.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Harbaugh =/= a fan||
He has to hold himself and the team to a very different standard than we do. He can help the team succeed by holding them to a high standard. We as fans are much more likely to create negativity and pressure with our high expectations. And fans make themselves miserable, which spills over onto other fans.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Auburn||
That team was only two years removed from a national championship. And anyway, the bigger point is that guys like Saban, Carroll, Stoops, etc. didn't turn things around overnight. If someone is going to be unhappy because Harbaugh doesn't outperform those guys, then that's on them.
|2 days 3 hours ago||This season is going to be the first step in a...||
...difficult process. Nobody takes a 5-7 team and turns them into contenders in one year. Look at Saban's first year at Alabama, Carroll's first year at USC, etc.
This team could make a lot of progress and still finish with only seven wins. Luck - in terms of injuries, the bounces of fumbles, etc. - will have a big effect on the Michigan's record.
What I want to see is a program headed in the right direction.
|2 days 4 hours ago||But still No. 1 in our hearts, right?||
|3 days 20 hours ago||It wasn't long ago that Harbaugh was a jerk...||
...because he didn't let guys play cards.
|5 days 2 hours ago||Chance to look stupid:||
Drake Johnson will lead the team in rushing for the season with roughly 800 yards.
|5 days 2 hours ago||Rudock and sacks||
Rudock took 14 sacks in 2013 and 18 last year. DG took 34 (!) in 2013 and 24 last year.
Iowa surrendered a total of 22 sacks last year (1.69 per game - 37th best in the country). Michigan surrendered a total of 26 sacks last year (2.17 per game - 76th best in the country).
|5 days 4 hours ago||1-5 with 5 being the highest||
Or maybe it's 0-5, but I don't remember seeing a 0.

You are a mensch, Brian.
|1 week 6 hours ago||This is like...||
...a presidential candidate annoucing that he/she is not always very fond of babies and veterans. It's almost incredible.

Thanks for doing this.
|1 week 5 days ago||oh - don't worry||
Propriety and class will be the watchwords during its creation.
|1 week 5 days ago||How did I miss this survey?!||
I would have told you that I like having you on the blog because you make me laugh and that, after you die from natural causes, I intend to wear you as a hat.
Also, and I don't mean to cause a rift, but isn't RGard an ape and not a monkey?

I really hope people can enjoy a 7-6 season if that's what happens. This program is on the right track. But it might take a few years to get to where we want to be.
|1 week 5 days ago||Some people deal with these painful matters with...||
...irreverance. It doesn't mean they fail to appreciate the gravity of the issues.
FWIW, I use gallows humor to help deal with particularly difficult situations on a fairly regular basis.

...he needs to practice his puns. You don't want your sense of humor to Aussify.

He was at Weber State before transferring to Michigan.
|1 week 6 days ago||My sense is that Australian football players could...||
...take every punting job in American football. Kids in the U.S. don't grow up having to hone an Aussie football level of skill with respect to kicking.
I think O'Neill will likely be a extremely valuable this year given Michigan's likely struggles on offense.
|2 weeks 4 hours ago||Yep||
A quirk of Michigan history is that Desmond may not have won the Heisman if Alexander hadn't been hurt that year, because Alexander likely would have been targeted quite a bit if he'd been able to play.
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||Exeter||
I suppose Exeter is fine for the jocular type, but I've always felt that the serious-minded boy must attend Eton. This is especially true if he is a hemophiliac.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I remember the last time Michigan won 7.7 games||
It was 1991.4. People were pretty disappointed, though that team was in a very different situation than Michigan is in now.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I like them||
They remind me of the basketball team's Cazzie Russell-era uniforms.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I hear you||
I suppose my own discounting of him is that I don't care at all what he says in an interview. His relevance to Michigan football was totally eclipsed in my mind the moment Harbaugh arrived in AA.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Do we really need to point out Hoke's flaws at this point?||
He's gone. He tried his best, was a good guy, and did some good things for the program. Let's wish him well.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||well played||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||OP||
Go for a run or play basketball or something. You'll feel better.
