ACLs suck. Feel like we'll lose almost 2 years of Pipkins being quality because of the time missed last year and being subpar for who knows how much longer. Didn't even get a redshirt in for any of that either.

Yeah really. Wolverine Devotee, in 20 years when someone brings up Denard, are you gonna say, "Who the fuck cares about that guy? We have new players who are good."

There's another Jalen thread. Time to move the hell on instead of bitching about it every few posts, rehashing the same tired complaints.

"hey, how is your wife in bed?"
What? That's a very private affair that intrudes on someone's privacy. The biggest scandal in Michigan sports, in which said "wife" is writing a book and making a documentary about being in bed with you(!!!) is decidedly not private.
|14 hours 1 min ago||Yeah, not sure why Jalen||
Yeah, not sure why Jalen would give the two boilerplate answers given from the Clays considering, ya know, he doesn't have those sentiments. It's the biggest scandal in Michigan history and one of the biggest all-time in college sports. You think he should just be indifferent about it?

Have to agree with everything Jalen said in that article.
A book and a documentary? Is he really doing this to clear his name? Or try to make a boatload of money? I suppose if the others were involved he'd have to give them a cut.

Obviously Jalen is all for that. It's Webber who doesn't wanna talk to anyone.

Well, we've played 2 bad teams and an ND team that probably doesn't have a great line besides Sheldon Day, and he got in unblocked because of some communication problems involving Cole (presumably). Obviously he's not terrible, and he's done well so far, but let's see how things go against State. Who do we play that has good DEs?

Why would it be dumb? Pretty sure Oregon does that, and their offense seems OK.

Didn't Carr try it for a few games during one season and it went poorly? I'm not at all saying it's a bad idea; I really wish Hoke would do it. I just thought I remember some punts getting blocked or the punter running to the side and shanking it out of bounds or the shield getting pushed back into the punter. I guess they didn't practice it enough beforehand. They might have even deployed it after the season had already started.

You can see a guy go downfield. But obviously not a good throw at all.

Yeah a guy just started going in motion when they were called for delay of game.

I haven't been to a Michigan game in a while, and this is sad to hear. So everyone is supposed to chant both words? Is that what the problem was?
If it was changed, I'm not sure who you blame. Don't blame Brandon without knowing that's the case. Before Brandon was there, for a year(?) when I had student tickets, they screwed up the chant too. They made it "Let's Go Blue" chanted by 3 different sections. It was horrible for a couple reasons. First, it's not as loud because now it was 1/3 of the stadium instead of 1/2. And second, it was lame to only shout "Let's!"

"dealing with the move up to the Pac-12"
So the last few years they haven't been that good because they've been too busy unpacking boxes to practice as much as they should? They should have hired the movers who helped Mizzou and Texas A&M to the SEC.
I'm aware our track record against the Pac-12 generally sucks, but I also don't at all buy the fact that we lost to UCLA 14 years ago so that probably means we'll lose to Utah. Utah wasn't even in the Pac-12 at that time. So does that even count? Not sure how this BS theory works so help me out.
You're arguing it's just a reflection that the Pac-12 is better and has been for a long time, but there are plenty more data points than Michigan. Hell, Wisconsin played the most MANBALL of football and I'm pretty sure Alvarez was 2-2 in Rose Bowls. Also, the SEC is even better than the Pac-12 and yet Carr had a great record against them, so your logic fails pretty hard there. Do you think his final win against Florida was because he was calling on the victory spirits from the past or because they decided to finally use all that talent they had on the field and Florida's defense wasn't that good that year?

"It's not like Miami was doing much to scare Michigan...it was Michigan doing it to itself."
I don't get when people think Michigan making some serious mistakes isn't a problem. Just a problem with turning the ball over too much. No big deal. Turnover margin isn't relevant to a team's chances to win.
|4 days 9 hours ago||He looks like he's jumping on||
He looks like he's jumping on too many of his throws. You can see both feet leave the ground.
|4 days 9 hours ago||I don't remember him missing||
I don't remember him missing holes against App St. at all, nor do I remember anyone else saying he did.
|4 days 9 hours ago||I'd like to see him play||
I'd like to see him play against a team that's not terrible before I say that.
|4 days 9 hours ago||I will not be satisfied if we||
I will not be satisfied if we top out under Hoke as Pelini under Nebraska. OK, he's won 9 or 10 games, which isn't great but good, but he's also coaching in this shitty conference.

"No shit who cares, I just care about Michigan."
Getting annoying when people complain that there are threads about other teams. If you don't care, don't respond. Some people actually like watching other football games.
|4 days 9 hours ago||App St. did something against||
App St. did something against Carr teams. So did Northwestern. Sure, we didn't lose to every spread team we played, but it was almost always more of a struggle than it should have been.
|4 days 9 hours ago||Not sure I'd really call||
Not sure I'd really call those weird. The interception was just plain bad. Darboh needs to take care of the ball; I thought the defender smashed it out with his helmet which is understandable, but it looked like it came out when his butt grazed the ball. Marcus Ray mentioned too when he was fighting for that first down that he's still not wrapping it up while getting tackled. The short kickoff was probably a fluky kind of thing though.
But Michigan also had a bunch of penalties, some declined, during that time. I agree we shouldn't get too worked up about it, but they looked pretty damn bad for that stretch.

No way in hell a Big Ten team gets into the playoff even if they're undefeated the rest of the way. I'd take that up on a bet for charity like reshp1's thread.

Yeah, but he's getting owned by Iowa State. Shouldn't they at least be the best program in the state?
