|2 hours 30 min ago||We have actually shut them out a fair number of times.||
We did 14-0 in 2000, 31-0 when Harbaugh was playing(1985), 42-0 in 1983 and a couple more times under Bo in the 70's. So 5 times in the last 45 years. Hell, they have only won 14 times in the span, unfortunately almost half recently.

Gerdeman tends to have some solid analysis. While I don't set aside specific hours to read it, I thought it generally came out on Monday so by Tuesday at lunch I thought it was odd it wasn't out.
|1 day 9 hours ago||The Baxter advantage||
|1 day 11 hours ago||I was at that game||
As someone who had season tickets for a long time and been to a lot of M games, it was somewhat surreal.
|3 days 3 hours ago||Why did someone down vote that?||
|3 days 15 hours ago||I will be there. Section 19||
|4 days 5 hours ago||They don't.||
Or at least not where I was looking.
|4 days 6 hours ago||Last year 41 of 129 teams had a kick return for a TD||
Many teams had 2. UAB had 4. And that is just kick returns for a TD.
So roughly 1/3 did. I think our 6 season drought has to be one of the longest.
|4 days 6 hours ago||Probably harder in the NFL||
Less skill discrepancy among players and better punters and kickers
|4 days 6 hours ago||Yep||
Per NCAA official stats.
|4 days 7 hours ago||Good info.||
Any idea if we have the longest drought?
|4 days 7 hours ago||They are not as rare as you might think||
There have been 24 kick returns and 36 punt returns (including blocks) for TDs this year. So 60 in about 300 games or 10% chance per game for any given team.
|1 week 3 days ago||I think our offense will do enough.||
I could see us winning a 17-3 type game.
|1 week 3 days ago||Not to be a downer||
But the 97 team only gave up 26 points though 5 games. But this defense is amazing.
|1 week 4 days ago||Yet Notre Dame is at Clemson at 8 pm||
I never really understood why the Michigan game seemed to be one of few moving. Their must be a ton of games along the coast. Maybe I only pay attention to Michigan because that is all the matters really........
|1 week 5 days ago||Seems masterful so far.||
But I guess it only makes sense. He was a successful NFL coach. Even guys like Saban failed there. It's probably why no one in the media thought Harbaugh would return to Michigan. Not many successful NFL coaches do. The only one I can think of is Bill Walsh and he only stayed at Stanford for a little while I believe.
|1 week 5 days ago||Brian - have you ever UFR'ed Bo's offense for a game?||
Especially from the 80's when Harbaugh was QB. If so, are there similarities to what we are running now? If not similarities, is it fascinating or boring?
|1 week 5 days ago||Field turf question||
How does heavy rain really affect it? I assume it gets slippery but I also assume there is adequate drainage where heavy rain isn't much different than normal rain. But I really don't know.
|1 week 6 days ago||My predictions||
Mich 37, Maryland 13
Mich 21, NW 10
|5 weeks 4 hours ago||Hate to disappoint||
But I was reading it over Labor Day weekend and was so mad about Brandon that every 5 minutes that I put it down.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Softball because M with chance to win National Title||
I hate the Blackhawks so some motivation to hope they lose but probably wont watch much of the Stanley Cup. I generally only watch hockey until the Red Wings are out.
Now if M wasnt in the softball game, I doubt I would even know the final game was on......
|18 weeks 6 days ago||It seems like most people got tickets that wanted them this year||
I have a friend with not too many priority points and he got the two he requested and was actually offered a third.
Do they always have an interest list? I am pretty sure that is how my friend got his tickets was by signing up on an interest list last year.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||I re-upped after dropping out for 2014||
I has season tickets from my time as a student in 1988 through 2013 (unfortunately, started and ended on a dramatic 1 point loss- Hurricanes and Buckeyes..but many great games in between.).
Prior to Brandon getting canned, didn't regret the decision at all. But an amazing amount of good happened all of a sudden and I am damn glad I was able to get back in.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||It's a decent course.||
I have done a fair amount of races and I think it is good. I have run it twice. It's not NY or Chicago but there is a decent amount of fan support. Belle Isle does seem to be windy as another poster indicated.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Great question||
There are so many big games that one play would make a huge difference. The 73 tie with OSU, the phantom TD in the Rose Bowl, the Miami Hurricanes onside kick in 88, Colorados Hail Mary, Texas's FG in the Rose Bowl, our onside kick in 2006 against OSU, heck, even the non lateral to Breaston on our crazy last second play against Nebraska in the Alamo Bowl.
Then you have so many big hockey games were a goal versus a post would be huge. In basketball, Weber coming down and passing to Rose to nail a 3......maybe a late play in the M 2013 national title game.
But my number 1 would be Bo's last game. Take back the holding flag on the fake punt and M likely wins that game to finish 11-1 with a potential share of the National Title. It would have been an awesome end to an awesome career.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||On the way!||
Tickets weren't too bad. I bought 13th row lower bowl mid ice for $45 last night from the box office. Upper bowl was $20. For a championship game, that seems reasonable. Premium games at Yost are $30 I think.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||One thing that helped the CCHA tourney was closer teams.||
Now Minn, Wisconsin and Penn St are all far. Before teams like Ferris, Western, Bowling Green all reasonable drive. Even ND and Miami not a terrible drive.
|30 weeks 6 days ago||3 of those QBs started in Rose Bowls||
Harbaugh - 86 season
Brown - 88 season
Taylor - 89 season
If we get 3 Rose Bowls out of the 10 on the roster this year, I think most of us will be satisfied.
|36 weeks 1 day ago||The Lions winning the Super Bowl would be very surprising.||
Agree with other poster on 1 playoff win in 57 years. Plus their last road playoff win was 12/22/57 at San Francisco. Yeah, Eisenhower was President.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||A 3.1 is pretty poor compared to M admission standards||
I would think he would almost certainly not get in w with a 3.1 unless he had real high test scores or some other unique talent. As a datapoint, my son is currently deferred at M with a 3.8 and a 32 ACT.
