"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

|1 week 20 hours ago||I would think they will still||
Favor OSU just because. Reading the aftermath of yesterday's game I have no idea what to expect from them. Their season is over, they don't care about their bowl game if it's not the Playoff and their best player may have checked out. I know they hate us but I've never seen that sort of self destruction after a loss by a team.

This make me want to hold my daughter even more when I get home from work. I can't even begin to feel their pain.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Never kick!||
Nothing good happens!
|5 weeks 4 days ago||They are both just as bad.||
I moved to Cleveland from Ann Arbor for work ( sad face ) I can tell you Spartan fans are whiners and OSU are just plain dicks. You can talk to them but they have an ego and really you can't blame them. We haven't done much in our end since the 90's. They all think we live in the past and it's sad but true in some aspects. The only way to change their thinking is to win.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||We're on to Minnesota.||
It was all so simple, kick the ball. This will either galvanize us or send us into a spiral. I hate that the bye week in next. This team needs to get back out there and play. There is so much to play for and the future is bright. I just wish this decade of pain would end. The season is summed up by two games. Let's lock our wounds enjoy some much needed alcohol and move on. A win against OSU will make this one much easier to look back on in a few years.

He admits on local radio that it's hard for him to say anything good about Michigan.

I can't believe that is in this article. He is not leaving after one year.

If there ever was a way to sum up the last several years that's it. Thank you for writing this. I needed that!
|45 weeks 5 days ago||Stop with the doom and gloom...||
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.
|45 weeks 6 days ago||Heart says Oregon Head says OSU.||
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!
|1 year 1 day 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.
|1 year 1 week ago||The bottom is about to drop...||
Maybe a change before OSU?
|1 year 5 weeks 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.
|1 year 5 weeks 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?
|1 year 5 weeks ago||2007 Capital One a Bowl||
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.
|1 year 5 weeks 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.
|1 year 6 weeks 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.
|1 year 7 weeks 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.
|1 year 7 weeks 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.
|3 years 3 days 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.
|3 years 4 days 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.
|3 years 4 days 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.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||I feel like Brady quit on||
I feel like Brady quit on this game. Most disappointed I have been since he's been here.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Would love to see Mattison||
Would love to see Mattison choke slam Borges for this crap.
|3 years 4 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.

|4 years 2 days 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.
|4 years 3 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 46 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.
