|1 day 2 hours ago||I enjoy it||
I like being out in the fresh air with my kids trying to find the right pumpkin and eating apples while picking them. Then going and getting donuts and cider. It's not the most exciting thing to do, but I do find it to be fun. It also is coupled with a nice fall drive, which I really like. Driving through the fall colors on back roads.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Not sure, but might be opportunity rate||
The defense has faced a lot fewer snaps than other defenses have, so opportunities are way down in comparison. As others have said, I'll take the defense that holds an offense to negative yardage for most of the game rather than need a high amount of turnovers.
This is far from a bend don't break outfit. This is a wall of unyielding mass.
|6 days 4 hours ago||Sample Size?||
I'm guessing it's sample size issue. Michigan has not let any long sustained scoring drives, so the amount of snaps the defense has played is much smaller than the amount most other teams have seen. This makes the few big plays they've given up, a higher rate per play than other teams.
3 and outs will hurt the defenses ability to reduce this stat, vs giving up long 11 and 12 play drives, bu tthe 3 and out is the better scenario.

It's a simple question.
|1 week 1 day ago||Michigan has played 137 seasons||
When they lay a beating like that, I don't see the issue you have with people enjoying it. This is a bye week, and Michigan added to the record books. I felt similar when Denard had a huge start against Connecticut, only to surpass his crazy yardage against Notre Dame. Jake Butt breaking records, Mike Hart, Gallon, these are all records that are being broken for a team that has played a lot of seasons. Since the amount of games has increased per season, and the bowl games count, as well as freshman being allowed to play, a lot of the career records might not be as impressive. However, in this case, this is a game during the modern 85 scholarship era, where Michigan dominated a team so bad, they got hugs when they earned a first down.
Fans on a message board during a bye week talking about a historic beatdown, is not going to derail the season or the team.
|1 week 1 day ago||I do||
I expect this defense to break a lot of teams spirit left on the schedule. Did you see some of the post pressers from the PSU game? And PSU is doing not bad.
|1 week 1 day ago||Drinking depended on which side of Division||
you were on.
|1 week 1 day ago||I was at the game||
just wasn't sure if that was the one he was talking about, because he had the score slightly off.
|1 week 1 day ago||67-65||
|1 week 1 day ago||What game||
was the 69-67 game?
|1 week 1 day ago||Winners Ball||
I believe a lot of those scores came during the time frame when the person who scored got the ball back.
|1 week 2 days ago||Glad I wasn't the only one||
It looks like a grey tshirt.
|1 week 3 days ago||7minutes and 16 seconds before first score||
And last score was with 3:44 left. That means 78 points were scored in less than 50 minutes of play
|1 week 4 days ago||At least there wasn't 200 recruits||
There to watch the band give up and play the opposing teams fight song
|2 weeks 25 sec ago||Rutgers is able to recruit like michigan is||
The public school is not able to do so. This is not an apples to apples comparison. There can be a huge discrepancy between high school players as people hit growth spurts at much different times.
I have to believe that most of the tough guys on here would not last a week, and probably not a day on Michigan's scout team getting crushed by Kalis and such. Yet feel no problem calling out some high schoolers.
|2 weeks 1 hour ago||Clowns in the woods?||
|2 weeks 1 hour ago||I played soccer through high school||
growing up and was on both ends of curb stompings. I'm definitely not against lessons learned on both ends of that spectrum. However, there was never a safety concern. I did play games where teams have taken cheap shots and it was a danger. It really is not worth it to suffer a major injury in high school sports if it can be avoided. This isn't near the same as PSU taking the field goal type thing. That is two teamsable to recruit similar type players with players getting major spotlight and scholarships.

how much access a koala has to the interwebs.
|2 weeks 2 hours ago||Recruits recognize real||
I read last year where other head coaches attending the same camps as Harbaugh would just make an appearance. Kids recognize Jim's passion for the game and his love. I'd guess that Harbaugh camps are still some of the top in attendance. I believe he can also spread out across the nation with coaches attending different camps. That means Michigan could be in 30-50 camps, yet each individual coach would only be at 10-15, depending if they hit up 2 in a day.
I'm sure Harbaugh has read through the new rules and knows exactly how far he can push them to be within the rules. I expect another revision next year too.
|2 weeks 3 hours ago||Really unbelievable||
how these kids can come back from this. His knee went backwards the other way. I thought it was going to be a career ender. Very glad for him that he looks to make it back. Is it assumed that left tackle is his final place on line, or was there an assumption he might switch over to right tackle? Glad he proved reports wrong this year and held onto spot and graded out well.
|2 weeks 3 hours ago||Here's my take||
|2 weeks 1 day ago||You can see Chryst try to explain||
to the reciever that it wasn't pass interference since he caught the ball. Reciever did not even come back for ball.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I think top 4 is fine||
None of the replacements or jumps has been an issue for me. I think our wins will continue to look better as the year goes on, but Michigan will have a chance to jump to number 2 with a win over OSU. Right now, I'm not confident enough that they are better than OSU right now. I agree that they have time to get there, just like the writer did. The O-line is improving (Newsome is a big loss though) and running backs continue to trust the O-line. Speight has room to improve with recievers. His chemistry with Darboh and Butt has been great. I think the timing and throws can be even better and need to be to be a playoff team.
If Michigan was pushed back to 5,6, or 7, then I'd be frustrated.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||a lot of jet sweeps||
that he got last year have gone to some of the younger wide recievers. He's still had some, but I wondered if his cuts aren't fully 100%. With the jet sweep requiring a hard cut upfirld at some point, I wonder if his ankle isn't there yet. It'd also explain why we havent seen him burn the CBs like he did last year with his cut and accelerate.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Is that an unsportsmanlike penalty?||
Who calls it usually? Backjudge? If Harbaugh could hear it, I'm suprised none of the refs could hear it.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||It looked very bad on replay||
the knee going backwards looked really bad. I hope for his sake it is not career ending, or something that will be a cronic issue through life. I wouldn't be suprised if he is out for two seasons between surgery and coming back from conditioning. At least he can get a red shirt next year to recover.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I agree here||
I don't see Michigan not beating any of the teams until OSU.
When it comes to OSU, the Michigan offense is going to have to play great to win. Their defense is easily as good as ours, so the difference will be which offense can step up. Michigan's offense is going to have to keep improving to beat OSU this year. If they played right now, I don't think it is a win. There is a lot of weeks in the season to get there though. No matter what, it will be a very tough game.
The QB competition will be vrey tough next year. Speight will have the lead, but I am sure O'korn still wants his day, and Peters will be wanting to get his time as well. For now, it looks like Speight is the man to get it done.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Does anyone know how hard it is||
to come back from a foot break? I've broken bones without any negative effects, but didn't have any screws added. Hope he makes a quick recovery. I wanted to see Michigan go up against this LB corps. I think Michigan would win either way, so I wanted to see the best they had.
|3 weeks 57 min ago||Won't start||
Means he will miss first snap and NOT listed as a starter. I think that is punishment enough.
|3 weeks 2 hours ago||I don't think your references are dated||
They all make perfect sense to me.
