True Detective was filmed down here in Louisiana. One notable Michigan connection is the artist who did all the bad guy's wood work. He is from Detroit.

This comment is hilarious if imagined to be read aloud by the real Shakey Jake.

As a relatively old man around here, I want to make an ignorant statement about the Twitters, but I think it may be important nonetheless. First, I’ve never done a tweet. Second, I don’t even really know why people think they can say anything in such a short burst of letters. Third, relevant to Michigan, wouldn’t it be good for Michigan fans to tweet positive things about recruits to help offset all the jerks saying negative stuff? If everyone refrains from saying positive stuff, and the haterz keep saying negative stuff, it makes us look even worse. I like to post positive stuff on this board about recruits who select other schools because I figure they may read our stuff. Lets respect them by saying we appreciate their interest in UM, even if we were only second best in their final decision. Just curious, anyone think we should not say positive stuff about recruits here?

Unfortunate for us, but we will be ok without them. Good luck Erick and Marshon.

Michigan 24, KSU 18. Shane uses the long buildup to the game to adequately prepare, Michigan's defense holds to a reasonable degree, and our O line repeats it's success from the OSU game.

They say Morris really chucks the ball hard. I wonder if this will be too much of a change from Gardner's style. Also, if Morris gets anxious he might be even more inclined to whip it hard. I hope he is good and relaxed, as much as he can be, and that he gels with the receivers. Good luck to the kid. Hell of a stage for a first game.

All these comments and no embed, so no way to see the video. At least nothing viewable from my iPhone. There is no easy way to embed when posting and people screw it up all the time. Even the special thread dedicated to how to embed video is outdated. We need some simpler instructions for those of us who are not computer programmers.

Good proposal. I think this will pull things back in the right direction after a tough season.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||I hate the way all the best||
I hate the way all the best big ten bowls are lumped together on Jan 1. They should be spread out.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Call me crazy, but even||
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.
|14 weeks 1 day 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.
|14 weeks 2 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.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||I hate this sort of high||
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.
|14 weeks 6 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.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||I hate all the pessimism on||
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.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||As a man with no experience||
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.
|17 weeks 4 hours 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.
|17 weeks 5 hours 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.
