No one has any real insight right now. Wait until after signing day and spring practice are complete. New coaches have been winning big early. Not that long ago Auburn went 3-9 (0-8) in the conference to playing for a National Title the very next year. We have a lot of ground to make up but by no means are we talentless. We have what many consider the best coach next to Belichick. We will surprise a lot of people this year. It's not like OSU routed us the last few years. We've played them tough and now we have a capable coach that "wanted" to come here. He's to big in ego not to fix it. I see is going 9-3 with a upset to end OSU dreams of back to back.

If Oregon wins it makes the offseason easier to deal with. If OSU wins than that's all we will hear about for seven months. I don't even think I want to watch. Living in Cleveland I thought about going to the event tonight with Brian and JUB but the thought of being there with OSU fans is unbearable. I am a Ann Arbor transplant and I don't think people really understand how awful and negative OSU fans can be. I don't see that party ending well regardless of the outcome of the game.

With the 3rd string QB. Everything just sucks!
|34 weeks 4 days ago||I can't make up my mind???||
I always look forward to Michigan football games. I always hated this week because it was the end of the season, not because we knew a potential beat down was coming. Now I am at a time when I could care less either way. On one hand you want to watch because you still want to believe that a win is possible. On the other hand you sort of know what's going to happen and you don't want it to ruin your day. Either way you know it will. I am just wondering who else is feeling this way? I feel bad like I'm giving up on them but they make it so easy to do. I just want it to be over with but either way it hurts. It seems like so long ago where we went into this game and it was for something, and we were actually the favorites. I don't think we can count 2011.

Maybe a change before OSU?
|39 weeks 6 days ago||Hopefully it's Saturday!||
A game where the team is playing for their coach and he is coaching for his job. There's enough in the line for this team that a win could go down as one of the biggest the program has had in a long time.
|40 weeks 1 day ago||What have you seen?||
What stands out this year that makes anyone think we have a punchers chance to beat them. This game means more to them than anything else on their schedule. We have struggled mightily against any half way decent team. I know the whole rivalry thing makes you want to believe we can surprise them. Players aside, does anyone believe Hoke and his guys can out coach anyone?

That was the way we should of been playing for the last 5 years of the LC era. We looked unstoppable. If not for TWO Mike Hart fumbles in the red zone we hang 60 on the defending champs and some guy that now coaches in C-Bus. That was the last time we played with a chip on our shoulder.
|40 weeks 2 days ago||Harbaugh?||
For either Harbaugh to work here it will have to be sooner than later. They would have to leave the NFL in December or early January to save any chance at a good recruiting class. With both their teams in the playoff hunt I don't know if their egos will do that. The only way I see it happening is by extreme beatings at the hands of MSU and OSU. That forces the school to make change fast. I hope for the best but right now I just don't feel confident in anything we do. Watching football yesterday it felt like a week where we lost and didn't even play a game. What we think is football is so far removed from reality I almost don't know what football is anymore. I don't see any teams trying to do this "man all" crap and win.
|40 weeks 3 days ago||Stark?||
It make me feel like we're one of the worst teams in football. It is numbing to think of how far and hard we have fallen.
|42 weeks 2 days ago||He looks scared.||
He looks scared to make a decision. It seems like he is trying force himself to do what the coaches want instead of what he wants to do. Whenever he rolls out and runs it opens so much more up for everything. Is second to run they showed Hoke with this look of disgust on his face like he was mad Devin ran. Even though we scored it's almost like he was mad we didn't do it with a RB.
|42 weeks 2 days ago||Not if he keeps getting hurt.||
More losses and more injuries for him in pointless games might effect his draft stock. I thought in the beginning of the year when people said he was gone next year was a good thing. It was supposed to mean we were having a good year. Now he he'll be gone and we'll having nothing to show from it but his first game against, it doesn't even matter.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||I was thinking that same thing||
It would of been one of those plays burned into Michigan-Ohio replays for the rest of time if we won.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||It's hard to look at next year||
untill the bowl game. That game will hopefully ease some of the pain of the losses this year. It will be interesting to see how we play against what will probably be either Florida or Georgia. Thats assuming the Cap One Bowl picks us.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Denard....||
Whatever the reason I can't buy him not playing the 4th qtr. I know they called it "a coaches decision." You have only so many chances to be a legend and I'm not taking away from the dozens of moments he has had in the past. But for all the criticism of him and his QB skills he had the chance to not only raise his draft stock but to become a player we put in the same level as a Woodson or Howard. He had the chance to in reality get 200 yds and maybe another score or two that game. OSU was giving up some big plays and Denard was already making them pay. Your final regular game a chance to dominate OSU for 2 years in a row. I only wonder what if he had played in the 4th.

I feel like Brady quit on this game. Most disappointed I have been since he's been here.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Would love to see Mattison||
Would love to see Mattison choke slam Borges for this crap.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||We can't be this awful can||
We can't be this awful can we? I like Hoke but his stubbornness is killing me. Put Gardner in and bench Fitz the rest of the season.

Tom V saying Denard reinjured nerve in elbow.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||I hate them more now then ever....||
Ohio is a worthless mess of a school. Their fans are pathetic. I live outside of Cleveland and all the sports talk radio is concerned with is the worthless Browns.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Denard...||
Why did they not try to run at least one time at the end? They still had a timeout. Actually had a few extra minutes to talk because of the review as well. The defense is so much better then last year. After watching the LSU-Bama game I can't help but wonder if well even score that game. Those are some great defenses.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||It is what it is....||
If it's Hoke then that's what it is. Why did he wait? If he really tried for the others and they said no it makes me wonder how screwed we really are. Now if Hoke is the guy theres no way he is worth the 5 million that has been thrown out there for the big names. Another somber point is our recuiting class might be doomed this year. I love Michigan but this is a low point that I never thought I would go through.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||He will be sorry...||
He's taking over a team that is in the bottom of the league. Haven't had a winning season since 2002 and they don't have any stability in the front office. He is a hard ass ( how well did that work out for Singletary) pro athletes don't respond to that attitude they revolt. I hope he foes well because he's from Michigan but I see him being fired by the end of his third year. The NFL will always be there Michigan won't.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||I have never hated anything more...||
In my life then OSU. I have absolutely now respect for them. I watch this game and I just want to go all incredible hulk on my tv. I think if our situation wasn't so bad right now I might not be as angry. I just want them to get their asses kicked every game. I don't care about the Big Ten's rep I only care about Michigan! And for the love of god why are they chanting like Penn St? Can't they come up with anything original?
|4 years 29 weeks ago||At least Devin did not play||
At least I don't think he went in did he?
|4 years 35 weeks ago||UGH????||
So what if we get them to the Rose Bowl. It means we beat OSU and our bowl game will now be a New Years Day game.
|4 years 38 weeks ago||Done the tour twice.||
It is amazing. The first time you run through the tunnel and hit the field it is a overwhelming experience. Bring a camera and take a lot of pictures. When I went Crisler was open and my friend and I went on to the court and took some pics. I don't think we supposed to be there but oh well. I would encourage any Michigan fan to do the your at least once. The best part is playing on the field. You get about 30 minutes of field time.
|4 years 38 weeks ago||It's hard not to be angry...||
rbgoblue is right. A decent defense and we may be contending this year for the Big Ten. As good as this offense is just think how good they would be with a defense that was in the 50-70 range nationally. When was the last time we got a turnover in our favor? Get this team the ball 5-6 more times a game through turnovers and a few more punts and we may be looking at 8-0 or 7-1. I have no opionin anymore on RR he can play offense but who knows what is wrong with the defense. I just wish we didnt have to go throgh this. We need to figure it out fast. 2011 is a cakewalk compared to what 2012 brings us. If we blow it up now I will be afraid.
|4 years 38 weeks ago||Now that hurts....||
Seeing that date. I can't belive that was the last big Ten win other then Indiana. Friggin Minnesota. It really has been along time. I am just shocked to see it in writing like that. It really is impossiable to defend.
|4 years 38 weeks ago||Can you blame him?||
No coach has had such a rough start at a school then him. Coming to a school like Michigan it should be a lot easier then this to win. He knows what he is up against. A lack of upperclassmen on defense, angry fans that just want to beat a rival not named Notre Dame and a uncertain future. I want him to stand up and lead this team to the promised land I just don't think he is going to have a chance to see his plan carried out.
