This is the happiest I've ever seen the fanbase after losing to OSU.
It's a nice feeling.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||With an injured Gardner and||
With an injured Gardner and Wile in for Gibbons? I think it was the right call. And based on this thread and my Facebook feed, that seems to be the majority opinion.
Shame it didn't work, but it was a hell of a game. This is the best I've felt after a Michigan loss in a long, long time.

Which browser are you using?
At least in Firefox, it's as simple as right click -> "This Frame" -> "Open Frame in New Tab/Window" (depending on your preference).

You're probably right.
But on the other hand, we'd probably have lost by even more because old-school Michigan never went for quarterbacks that could run like Denard and Devin can.
Most of my time at Michigan was with Carr as a head coach, and the one thing I hated more than anything in those games was when the play calling was:
10 RUN BALL UP MIDDLE
...no matter what. The single biggest disappointment about today's game, for me, is that we returned to exactly that for the second half of the game.
Smith didn't make 2.5 yards per carry. Rawls didn't even make half a yard on average. At some point, when things aren't working, you need to try something else.

When RichRod was fired, people wanted a return to the Michigan of old.
Looks to me like that's exactly what we got.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Did you stop to consider that||
Did you stop to consider that "our offense is going downhill" because our starting quarterback can't throw the ball and our starting running back has a broken leg? Those MIGHT have played a factor. Doesn't excuse the play calling in the second half, but it's not like a different offensive coordinator could have kept those injuries from happening.

Michigan lost four times this year.
The first was to Alabama, currently #2 in the nation.
The second was to Notre Dame, currently #1.
The third was to Nebraska, who is #14, is 9-2 and is likely going to win the Big Ten championship game.
The fourth is OSU, who would probably be #3 in the nation if they were eligible to be.
Take a step back from the ledge. We lost to damn good teams. I'm not happy about today's game or Borges right now, but this season wasn't the trainwreck some of you are making it out to be. Could it have gone better? Yes. But we're still far, FAR ahead from the 3-8 disaster of a season that we had my senior year at Michigan.
Besides: we still get to go to a bowl game. OSU doesn't. :D
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Bullshit. There were||
Bullshit. There were definitely calls that went our way that shouldn't have, most notably that possession call with less than a minute left.
I'm all for ref bashing when it's warranted. I really don't think it is here.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||What is there to say? Even||
What is there to say? Even with the exttra help from the blown possession call with about forty seconds left, we couldn't put it away. Ohio played well, and did so for the entire game. They earned it.
There's always next year...
|2 years 1 week ago||Seriously. Skyrim is $60||
Seriously. Skyrim is $60 right now, and I know I've heard about some major bugs (especially on the PS3).
On the other hand, I just got Fallout: New Vegas during the last Steam sale for around $15 for the base game plus all of the expansions.
Waiting definitely has its benefits, especially when you're as broke as I am.

Same here. That game was amazing. Took me forever to get it (until the Steam sales this summer), but I got completely addicted once I started it.

"The Hoover Street Rag does something long and complicated that I don't understand. Parody of a bad NBC hour-long drama?"
Sort of close. It's a parody of Community, one of NBC's half hour comedies that airs on Thursday nights.
By the way: Community has amazingly strong writing and acting, and is consistently hilarious. I recommend it wholeheartedly. Bonus poinst because one of the writing staff, Megan Ganz, is a Michigan alum and former editor in chief of the Every Three Weekly.

Snyder would face immense political backlash if this happened, and even proposing it could kill his chances for re-election. I don't think he's arrogant (or dumb) enough to try it.
