|1 day 12 hours ago||It's almost the worst of all Beilein worlds so far||
The highly rated guys are hurt or badly underperforming. And no one looks like he'll be Novak or JMo for this team.
|1 day 12 hours ago||The good news is Irvin and Spike should get better||
The bad news is that everyone other than LeVert looks either lost, unhealthy, or just not good. Even the team's effort appears to be lacking at times. And they seem to have little fire (save for Caris).
Irvin should make a big difference if he can return to the form he showed at the end of last year. At least LeVert would have a running buddy.
It seems like we're a long way off from seeing anything out of the five.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Admittedly not an ambitious goal||
My hope for this game is that Michigan looks like they've previously discussed playing defense and rebounding.
|2 days 21 sec ago||Very interesting and much appreciated as always||
The flaw of running what theoretically should work rather than what works in reality reminds me of what we saw with Borges. I remember you often saying that given calls by Borges on what turned out to be failed plays made perfect sense on paper.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Wow||
Early returns on the Big Ten are not good - except for MSU.
|2 days 17 hours ago||I can't speak for OSU fans, I but can say this:||
Reflux problems really can mirror heart problems. My mom appeared to have a heart issue not too long ago. It took a battery of tests - and a surprising amount of time - to learn it was just a reflux issue. I have no idea about Meyer, of course, but what he described should not be taken as obvious b.s.
|2 days 17 hours ago||This is a mountain out of a molehill right now IMO||
They lost one game to a very good program (as much as it pains me to say that) in weather that hindered their ability to take advantage of their presumed superiority in the air. And then one player questioned the offense's play calling and then quickly apologized. It's really premature to suggest they're imploding.
|2 days 19 hours ago||But they literally have cans of swag at Miss. St.!||
|2 days 19 hours ago||People seem very convinced that the Under Armor money...||
...at Maryland can make them a contender. It would be interesting to see whether that's the case with a good coach.
|2 days 20 hours ago||this is very well done||

I even lost the boat I never had!

|5 days 1 hour ago||The Game is immune to the context of a given season||
The Game is not a means to an end - it is the end. Both teams will likely be as fired up as they can be. Yesterday is irrelevant.
|5 days 13 hours ago||I think he's counting rs juniors as seniors||
Michigan lists them that way, so it is confusing.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Agreed re: the first part||
I thought most of Michigan's penalties were self-inflicted wounds, though they were the victims of some bad calls too. Michigan is sloppier on the road.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Meh||
The young man wants to win. What he did wasn't ideal, but it's understandable that he'd be frustrated after that game - a game that likely killed his dreams for his final season. And he absolutely should enter the draft. He's the No. 1 RB on the class. You leave when that happens.
All of this being said, he should be suspended for next week's game. It's a moral imperative!
|5 days 19 hours ago||I can't find the tweet anymore||
But I'm pretty sure I saw that he told a reporter he's okay.
|6 days 10 hours ago||It's second-tier relative to the staff's own priorities||
They went after Winston, Langford, Battle, and Bridges and missed. They went after Winston, Battle, and Langford for a lot longer and harder than they went after anyone they landed. Part of the class's ranking comes just from it's size.
I'm not throwing in the towel. I'm just saying what I see. I'm still going to root for the team - not that it matters, because what I do has no effect on the team at all.
|6 days 12 hours ago||I appreciate your spirit||
I lack it at the moment, but I appreciate it.
|6 days 12 hours ago||That seems like it might be an extreme overreaction...||
...but it also seems like the most likely outcome right now to me. I'm having a hard time imagining things turning around a great deal this year. And next year's recruits are a bunch of second-tier guys that the staff took after missing out on other players.
|6 days 12 hours ago||I'm finding it hard to see that as just a stumble or the first..||
...step on the path to something good. That looked like a 2010 RR defense trying to stop a good offense. The guys - especially the centers - often looked like they'd just met their teammates today. Watching them guard the paint was like watching a drugged flamingo try to fight a wild boar. It's really hard to imagine this team not getting absolutely crushed inside all year long. Max Bielfeldt would be the best center on this team by a wide margin.
|6 days 14 hours ago||Not a good half||
Team looks soft in every respect. Hopefully they'll grow.
|6 days 21 hours ago||Assume that most teasing you get is good-natured||
It won't all be, but you'll draw less negative attention when people see your "it's all in good fun and part of the rivalry" attitude. OSU fans are a little like bears - the less threatening you seem, the less threatening they're likely to be. Also, hit one in the nose with a stick only as a last and necessary resort to protect your physical safety.
|1 week 20 hours ago||I was really enjoying thinking of the OSU game as...||
...winnable. It doesn't feel that way anymore.
|1 week 1 day ago||Like a lot of people in this thread...||
...I also don't like having to use new words or treat people with respect or distinguish between different situations. How come I can't just smash stuff? Where my country gone?
|1 week 1 day ago||PSU wins 31-24||
Lack of Glasgow and road sloppiness are the difference.
|1 week 1 day ago||He had 4,300 total yards in 2013||
He's pretty darn good when he's healthy.
|1 week 1 day ago||Let's do it!||
That would be fantastic. You don't stop adding top players. Look at what USC did under Carroll and what Saban's done at Alabama. Let Hill, O'Korn, and Co. battle it out.
|1 week 2 days ago||Having a healthy Ryan Glasgow and/or Bryan Mone...||
...would be a good start. This has been an excellent season, and the program is very much on the rise. But Michigan did not look anything like a playoff team during the last month. They never did, really. And now one of their strengths - the DL - is down three guys, one of whom (Glasgow) was having an all-conference season. And Glasgow has been replaced with a guy who was very recently on offense.
I don't say this to knock the team. This season has been a lot of fun. The team deserves our admiration. But they are just not a top-four bunch right now.
