|1 day 10 hours ago||History would say 2-3||
Given the schedule, that seems about right although I could see winning one of the tough 3.
On the flip side, we have a really good shot at winning all of our home games next year. But I see a 9-3 season for 2014.
Then in 2015, we edge up to 10-2 (losing at Utah and PSU), but win the B1G East and the B1G.
|5 days 6 hours ago||Don - do you think it would be bigger than the 96 upset?||
I feel it would be equivalent.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Come on Magnus||
No one wants to see a bunch of clearly articulated facts pointing to a loss! Why don't you white out the words and just add a few more pictures to balance it out.....
|5 days 8 hours ago||Mattison was our DC in 1995 and 1996||
We upset Ohio each time 31-23 and 13-9.
The 1996 season was very similar to this one. The Buckeyes were blowing people out, undefeated, 10-0, and ranked #2. Meanwhile we were 7-3 with a solid defense and an anemic offense under 2nd year OC Fred Jackson (Fred said our offense was like the speed of light but faster and like Atlas but stronger......). We had even lost at Purdue 9-3. Yet the defense kept us in the game and we rebounded from a 9-0 deficit at the half.
Michigan 20, Ohio 17
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Their 89 game against Illinois was a classic||
Leading 10-7 with under 2 minutes to go, they just needed to run out the clock. I actually think they could have just taken a knee but they chose to plunge into the line with their back, Hylant Hickson. He of course fumbled and Jeff George drove Illinois for a TD and the win.
It's actually a pet peeve of mine when coaches decide to run between the tackles when they could just take a knee. You still see it quite often. At the end of the first half, maybe the logic is that you could break a big run but it seems like the risk of fumbling and giving up points is greater than ripping off a 60+ yard run on the last play of the half. But you see it at the end of games as well. We may have even been able to just take a knee against Indiana this year at the end when Fitz rumbled for the TD but not sure.

5-4-1 vs Woody
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Like the chart.||
Any chance you could add Notre Dame and maybe the other 3 teams we played. Would be interesting to see where they fall compared to who we still have to play.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Moeller was the coach in 1991||
Bo gave up 40 to Missouri his first year and never gave up 40 or more again.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe it's supposed to be but it's not.||
The 1995 5-0 Purdue game in the rain/sleet was never more than 75% full for example. I was there and stayed to the end. It was cool actually, I just followed the line of scrimmage in about row 20 for the 4th quarter. Couldn't have been more than 25,000 there at the end.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||This board is extremely fragile as of late.||
Hoke is 24-8 as a coach. He has a Sugar Bowl win. Hard to crucify him over 1 loss. Plus, look at all the other top teams losing this year and every year in college football. Just this week, #5 Stanford at Utah, #8 Louisville at home against UCF.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I think they announce the higher of ticket sales or actual.||
In that mid 70s game, was it not a sellout?
|6 weeks 4 days ago||How do you get 30 with Gibbons 2-2?||
Wile makes one? We go for 2 after all 3 TDs? We miss all extra points after 4 TDs?
|6 weeks 4 days ago||42-28 Michigan||
Hoke to 19-0 at home!
|7 weeks 1 day ago||It is frustrating.||
Borges doesnt seem to make in-game adjustments very well. It is as if the plan was determined earlier and we go with the plan, regardless of how it is working.
I will say that our offense is much better than a GERG defense though. Our scoring offense is ranked 22nd right now and while I didnt look it up, I think GERG's defenses were ranked in the 100 range.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Great post!||
One question though. How many teams have tried to score a TD with under a minute and 80 yards to go? You mentioned 6 made it. I was wondering what the percentage was.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Treadwell||
Anything seems better. Doesn't Funk report to Borges? Don't see how the O Line issues don' t roll up to him.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Actually we were on our 45||
It was 4th and 1. I thought we should have gone for it. I would be curious what the Mathlete would think.
|19 weeks 1 hour ago||Totally agree Don.||
I remember going there as a kid around when it opened thinking how stupid a really steep big staircase is on a stadium used for winter sports. Olympia had charm like Yost. I understand a pro team needed more than charm, but Joe Louis seemed to miss the boat on everything but more seats. The Palace opened about a decade later and seemed significantly better.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||Agree with the above on Bo.||
Also Bo's Lasting Lessons, I think by John Bacon. 3 and out if you want the Richrod saga. There is also a book by Jon Faulk that is interesting, I can't remember the name.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||If you read the article||
They play ASU this year and next. They also play us this year and next. Not sure how you concluded they replaced us with ASU.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||I was just happy to see a M hockey thread!||
Given the new B1G hockey conference and the greatest schedule since I have followed Michigan Hockey (25 seasons, I am old....), I really think there should be more hype.
Hopefully, this year's schedule is indicative of future year's as well.
|30 weeks 4 days ago||We hired a guy named Bo once.||
He worked for some Ohio team. Come to think of it, we hired a guy named Mo that played for that same Ohio team. Those hires worked out pretty well!
|31 weeks 3 days ago||I am with you.||
I figured the blue jackets have about 7 fans. Hard to picture Columbus truck drivers yelling Let's Go Blue.....Jackets.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||They got it||
They just need to tie in regulation. They are up 3-0 with 1:19 to go and on power play.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||The Wings could do well in the playoffs.||
They have really come on of late. If Yale can win as the last team in, no reason the Wings can't win as a 7th seed.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||Comparable team to this year||
I think we will be in a position to challenge in the B1G for the title and be a 3-4 seed in the tourney. Likely make the Sweet Sixteen but probably not a Final Four team. Hope I am wrong on the latter part.
|33 weeks 4 days ago||There always seems to be outliers every game.||
I don't understand it. But I went to the 2002 ND game (atND) with 3 guys from work and 1 guy wore a Charlie Batch Detroit Lions jersey.........
|35 weeks 3 days ago||The B1G needs to win National Titles for respect nationwide.||
Since our win in 1989, the B1G has only 1title, State in 2000. That's pretty bad. During that timespan the ACC, Big East and SEC have quite a few. And it's not just blueboods like Duke, NC and Kentucky although they have 10 in that stretch I believe. Schools like Arkansas, Maryland, UNLV, Arizona, Syracuse each have a title. UConn came out of nowhere and won 3.
|36 weeks 22 hours ago||I like the high profile games.||
But I wish more were at home. Due to the Joe game against MSU, only 9 home conference games. Then the 2 Boston games, 2 Tech games and maybe 2 Ferris games is only 15 home games.
I count 33 games not counting playoffs. 15 home, 15 away, 3 neutral (Joe and GLI).
I guess there probably will still be the lesser games to fill out the home schedule like the exhibition games against a Canada college team and the Under 18 team. Sucks not to have any home playoff games.
Still, glad to see the Boston teams and I would guess we will get New Hampshire next year.
|38 weeks 2 days ago||Either||
Win the B1G tourney and make the Elite 8
Make the Final Four
Otherwise, this season isnt a success. Tying for 4th regular season is an underachievement so the team has ground to make up.
