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.
A guy can dream.

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?
|7 hours 8 min ago||Since I was about 17 I would||
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.

You should present your own examples and we can decide whose are better.

Sounds fun but just make sure you hide your cooler during the tailgate.
|1 day 57 min ago||I have to agree. Funchess||
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.

Everyone already knows what I look like.

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.

You can't trust anyone named Lars
|1 day 4 hours ago||Agreed. Which is hilarious||
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.

Probably should have included him but he only started one game that year.

Jourdan Lewis. Interception return on opening drive.

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

Ghost of Hoke might literally be vomiting this very moment.

Two kids, two c-sections. It's incredible how desensitizing having children can be.

Just wait until you witness your first transvaginal ultrasound.
|1 day 17 hours ago||My wife was pregnant during||
My wife was pregnant during the 2009 season. I got the "all in" ticket pack where you got tickets to every game but always in different seats. When I checked out there was a section with "special requests." I noted that my wife was pregnant and I would appreciate aisle seats. I ended up with aisle seats at every single game. I really appreciated that they accommodated us.
Basically what I'm saying is, the best thing you can do is call the department and ask.

|1 day 19 hours ago||Serious question: have||
Serious question: have studies ever been done to discern whether there is an advantage to playing home games almost a mile above sea level? It would seem like that would at least help you out in the 4th quarter in a tight game. I know that cyclists have spent months working out at high altitudes and then freeze their blood for later use when competing.
I only bring it up because approximately 48 hours does not seem like enough time to acclimate appropriately.

I wince every time I read about how Hill "broke his jaw." Just sounds awful.
|2 days 6 min ago||This is because Schefter and||
This is because Schefter and all the other NFL disciples probably reference the same one or two sources, and it was probably some guy who knows Harbaugh from the NFL, not from his Michigan days. Of course Harbaugh isn't going to confide in some random guy about his love for Michigan. He's going to talk to his Michigan buddies about it. So some random guy who knows Harbaugh tells Schefter et al that Harbaugh "wants to win the Super Bowl more than anything" or you can let your imagination fill in the blank.
