The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

BR so no. But I don't really care what it says. It's nice that we can actually act like humans on this blog instead of saying the kinds of things that the neanderthals post on 11 Warriors et al, but I'm really getting annoyed by all the BJ's that are getting handed out to OSU/MSU this offseason by this very board.

I think that's one of those rationalizations you could make about a lot of game situations and circumstances.
|18 hours 11 min ago||Wilson's interception at the||
Wilson's interception at the end of the half had no effect on the game, so Michigan was essentially -3 in turnovers and still only lost by a TD. You would expect Rudock's chemistry with his receivers to improve from week to week which will hopefully help his down field accuracy but I am a little worried that may plague him all year and prevent us from taking the leap to being a very good offense.
The defense looked very good but their linebackers need to improve in pass coverage. I think this was a problem last year as well.

I guess there's always a chance Rudock could get hurt in practice or something.

The expectation out of East Lansing seems to be playoff or bust. At least their own fans seem to think they're a playoff team.

I don't get it. Are coaches not allowed to talk to professors?

I believe MSU is overrated. I'm not saying they won't be a decent team, like 10-15 nationally, but they are not a top 5 team, and definitely not a playoff team. While Dantonio's ability to find 2-3 star guys who turn out to be real nice Big Ten players has been impressive, you just can't sustain a top 10ish team year after year with that formula. The other thing is, Dantonio's success is largely rooted in having a solid group of upperclassmen. They are seemingly lower on quality upperclassmen than they have been in the past.

I plan on drinking a few Hofbrau's a couple hours before the game, but I want to be sober. I don't want my senses to be dulled while I enjoy the HARBAUGH

Can you get that around Ann Arbor? I found Hofbrau Oktoberfest at Meijer but I would love to try Hacker Pschorr.

QB oh-no, over the top to wide open Khalid Hill. 75 yards.

He won't feel lucky 20 years from now when he's overweight and suffering from cirrhosis, gout, diabetes and other horrible effects of long term alcohol abuse, amiright?

Since I was about 17 I would go with my dad to our favorite coffee shop near my parents' house all decked out in our Michigan gear. Then we would either head to the game or to their house to watch the game. Not to sound corny but it was a nice little tradition that made it special. It also was likely that it directly contributed to my coffee addiction (since I now subconsciously associate great coffee with Michigan Football). Anyway that shop closed a few years ago after a Starbucks opened a few doors down but I have always been fond of that tradition.

I have to agree. Funchess was underutilized, and he knew it. It seems like he quit on a lot of plays and maybe even on a lot of games. It sucks to not have him this year but it's not like there is this massive drop in production that Michigan has to replace.

As long as Blake O'Neill doesn't try to run for a first down on 4th and 10 deep inside our own territory, he can idle or do whatever he wants.

Re #1: This is a recurring meme among rival fans and even many uninformed Michigan fans. But it is also a fallacy. If Hoke is a terrible evaluator of talent, you would have to leve the same accusation at other coaches such as Urban Meyer, Mark Dantonio, Nick Saban and others whom Hoke beat for many of his recruits.

Agreed. Which is hilarious considering Booker said he was "annoyed" by the Jim Harbaugh hype. That's an incredible statement coming from a guy who's being talked about as a Heisman candidate this year.

Charles Woodson >> Jabrill Peppers
This is not the cleanest list as I was only eleven years old so my memory is not impeccable (also adjusted for personnel/alignment differences). But if you add this up you get:
1997 defense >>>>>>>>> 2015 defense
