I hate the way all the best big ten bowls are lumped together on Jan 1. They should be spread out.

Call me crazy, but even though I'm a big M fan, I wasn't bothered at all by Marcus Hall's departure from Michigan a stadium. Given the context - a big rivalry game, a fight among the players, and a huge hostile stadium of fans screaming for your head - it's certainly an understandable reaction. I don't think he did anything wrong. People expect these players to act like angels even when we hurl abuse at them, and then we act all indignant when they react like humans.

This tweet brings up a good point. Would it help recruiting to make the numbers of recruits' heroes available to incoming players. It appears that the number is a strong pull on peppers. I don't like holding numbers back anyway, and if it brings in recruits, all the more reason to make the 2s, 98s, 21s, etc. available.

Exactly. I'm a Michigan fan, but I will pull for any big ten team out-of-conference.

Brown Bear is one of the few people around here who supported the team throughout the tough times this season.
|1 week 3 days ago||God damn defeatists all of||
God damn defeatists all of you. This OSU team may be great but some mediocre big ten teams played them strong. A win here is unlikely but not impossible. Where's Brown Bear when you need him? Brian says we go down 39-0? Frankly I'd rather him just not make the prediction at all. With all the self-hate and comments about our team and coaches, if Michigan wins this game no one here deserves to celebrate.

Michigan wins, 19-17.

Do you have a source for this? Not that I highly doubt it, but it seems etched in the programs' history. Also, I thought he was quoted post-game, which seems like a press conference context.
|1 week 4 days ago||I was there. Does anyone||
I was there. Does anyone remember how freezing it was? By far the coldest UM game I've ever been to. There was a lot of confidence in the stadium that year, in spite of OSU's ranking. We simply don't have that confidence this year, at least in the fan base. Hopefully the players don't pay attention to the pessimists on mgoblog.

I hate this sort of high school shit. Borges deserves everyone's support. If he eventually gets canned, he still deserves our respect. Our man is doing his best. I'm not pleased either, but he is a hard worker, he has hoke's support, and the players too.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly. Support the team.||
Exactly. Support the team. Respect their effort. It's a tough season, but all the hate around here is ridiculous.

I hate all the pessimism on this board, so I'm not even going to share my prediction that Michigan loses 17-13.

I'll bet that if the receiving team knows that you are going to onside kick it, the success rate is much lower. I'd like to see stars on expected onsides compared with surprise onsides.

As a man with no experience either playing or coaching football on any level, I demand that Al Borges implement Saturday's suggestions at once based on the fact that Saturday's suggestions seem to make good sense.

I think this is Spanish for “Stop running off-tackle into stacked fronts!”

It's true that we're 6-2, but even so it still isn't satisfying to bask in purdue's problems. Our program's offense is arguably in free fall right now. This is bad karma.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I don't see what getting rid||
I don't see what getting rid of hoke will do except tank recruiting. I think most all our woes come done to bad offensive coaching. Replacing Borges and maybe some staff would probably help. Just because we're angry doesn't mean we should demand the head of the HC.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I've defended Borges for||
I've defended Borges for awhile, but I agree that he may need to go. I have a serious question: why not let Borges go and keep hoke? Seems to me that hoke is great (recruiting, for instance). In other words, aren't our problems pretty much all on Borges' shoulders? I don't know much about how sidelines work, but to me this seems to all come down to the OC.

I think Michigan's players are out for blood after last week's humiliation. Michigan 24, Nebraska 17.

Someone here may know better than I, but didn't the great Michigan linebacker Jarrett Irons decline to enter the NFL even though he was a lock to get drafted? I haven't seen anyone else here mention him.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||It is tough to compare||
It is tough to compare fanbases' behavior when there are crappy fans everywhere. But I honestly think that UM has respectful fans, relative to the others I know. When I left A2 for Texas to go to college, I was horrified at the hatred and lack of support from the Texas fan base toward their own players.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Not sure why no one is||
Not sure why no one is talking about football. I think that crappy weather helps Michigan. First, crappy weather hurts offenses, and so helps even out the two teams' defenses. In crappy weather neither team moved the ball well and the game is kept close. A field position battle. I think crappy weather makes the fame a crap shoot, whereas I think otherwise May had a bit of an edge.

Space Coyote's frustration is related to the general decline in quality on the board. I hope the Brians and Heikos consider tinkering with the voting rules to address this

Another Texas saying that fits: you can put boots in the oven, but that don't make 'em biscuits.

Not to brag, but I was at the Big House when Slippery Rock played there in 1978 or so. At the time it earned the record for the most attendance for a Division II game ever. I think it took place during Michigan's bye week.
