It feels like 20 years.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||It's nice to see a coach||
It's nice to see a coach freak out like Harbaugh did. I'd have to go back and watch it on DVR, but I'm pretty sure after at least two of those huge freakouts the defense recorded a sack or negative yardage play. They really seemed to be feeding off of his energy. So much better than blank stares and golf claps.
OSU's tears of unfathomable sadness taste delicious, but they will bring their A game next week. Michigan has a legitimate shot, but I'd sure feel better with Glasgow out there plugging run holes.

Hopefully. That is still a very talented team and I can't see them making the same mistake with Elliott twice, especially after watching the Indiana tape.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Michigan has been terrible on||
Michigan has been terrible on the road for the last several years against anything remotely resembling a quality team. The last quality win? Sugar Bowl? Capital One? Notre Dame 06'? Ouch.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Refreshing to not throw in||
Refreshing to not throw in the towel with :47 left in the half. Those are the small things that can turn into big things in close games. What a difference a year and an entire coaching staff make. Hopefully another difference is halftime adjustments, as in, I hope there are adjustments, especially on defense.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||Meh. After the initial||
Meh. After the initial shock, I mostly feel indifference towards the whole thing. After the unmitigated tire fire of the last 7 years this seems small. Yes, the manner in which the game was lost was shocking, but it was also a fluke. It was much more depressing for me to watch RR and BH teams go out and be totally uncompetitive with no signs of any meaningful player progression week after week, year after year, death by a thousand cuts if you will. At least now I know there is hope for improvement instead of staring into the black hole of 3 man fronts, stuffed animals, vigorous clapping and competitive practices.
|31 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, yes and yes. Exactly||
Yes, yes and yes. Exactly how I feel. Fuck the last 7 years because they are making it almost impossible to enjoy this run. I just keep waiting for the other shoe to drop, a 30pt blow out loss at the hands of a rival, a sudden complete regression on all fronts, teams doing what they havent been able to do all season against us. It goes on and on. I know its crazy, and our coaches are so much better than they have been in the past, but I just can't help that nagging negative feeling.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||I'm not sure I'll feel 100%||
I'm not sure I'll feel 100% like "its the way it used to be" until we can win games against quality (or even just decent) opponents on the road. Not to mention, the last several years have conditioned me against reading too much into September football.

After the last several seasons I am struggling to comprehend what is going on here.

Well the O looks all disjointed, hopfully the D keeps up the pressure.

|36 weeks 6 days ago||There is a lot of whistling||
There is a lot of whistling past the graveyard around here. I predict we will win, but again our O-line will struggle, JR is going to get forced into making dumb 3rd & long throws that will result in interceptions. I think we get one rushing touchdown on a short field due to a turnover and a passing touchdown on a moonball thrown into triple coverage. I'm going with 14-10 Michigan.
|37 weeks 2 days ago||I agree with C and D, I think||
I agree with C and D, I think our defense will be good, but it they could be even better if the offense could keep them off the field. The problem is, when your QB is having to force throws because of constantly being in a 3rd & long situation, interceptions are going to happen. In terms of B, I really wish Utah wouldn't have gifted us those garbage time points. They looked like they were in prevent, just letting us pick them apart knowing we were killing time. People shouldn't be hanging their hat on that series.
|37 weeks 2 days ago||I didn't see much in our last||
I didn't see much in our last game that leads me to believe we will win 8 games. I'm not quite sure where people are coming up with that. If you don't have a run game, your offense becomes one dimensional and your defense spends the whole game on the field. Fine if your QB is a Payton Manning type throw god, not so fine if your QB is a turnover machine. This has played out over and over again the past few years. We'll devour some cupcakes and everyone will be happy until B1G play starts. Then, once we face some real defenses, like we did at Utah, the wheels will come off. Harbaugh will get this fixed, but it won't be this year. I'm saying 6 wins.

Perry had some awesome blocks on the outside, I loved that.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||If I'd never watched a down||
If I'd never watched a down of Michigan football since 2007 I'd probably buy what you are selling. However things have happened since then, most of them bad and most of them started out in similar fashion to this. No run game, turnover prone QBs, defenses that spend too much time on the field and predictible one dimensional offenses. We blow or first game or have an underwhelming performance against a cupcake and people come out of the woodwork to proclaim how X coach is going to get it turned around and we are all overreacting. All that bullshit never lasted past our first trip to the B1G woodshed and guys like you were bitching right along with the rest of us.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||I'm confused as to why Mich||
I'm confused as to why Mich waited so long to go into hurry up offense. We were down 14pts almost all of the 4th and it seemed like things were moving in slow motion until about 2min left when the game was all but decided.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||It has nothing to do with||
It has nothing to do with being a fair weather fan. The fair weather fans are long gone after the last 8 years.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||This game was a shit show for||
This game was a shit show for Michigan. It's the same recipe we've seen the past few years. No run game, turnover prone QB, overworked defense and a general inability to put it together on the road. Hopefully JH does what RichRod and Hoke couldn't and find a way to fix this unholy mess with available players or else we are in for a long 4 years. At least Peppers looked good.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||I still can't figure out why||
I still can't figure out why they waited so long to go hurry up. We are down 14pts and acting like we are winning by 14.

Ruddock is DR without the winning smile and running ability upside.

At what point do we go hurry up for fucks sake? Does JH think we are winning?

We might win 6 games this year.

Bullshit. We are an entire O-line and RB corps away from bring a competitive football team.

Nothing the D does is going to matter until we get a run game.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||Someone hold me. Inept||
Someone hold me. Inept offense, servicible but overworked defense. Please no, this has not worked out well for us the past 8 years.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||I don't get it. If you know||
I don't get it. If you know its questionable why can't you go to hurry up and run a play?
|37 weeks 4 days ago||Changing the QB isn't going to change anything.||
If you have absolutely no run game, you could put Tom Brady in there and he's going to throw picks. The issue isn't the QB, it's the same issue that has plagued this team since 2007, no o-line and no stable running back. If you don't have a run game and your QB is anyting less than a throw-god, you are going to get hammered. Here we are, another year, another shitty run game. It's going to be a long season unless Harbaugh can work a miracle.

Do you guys think we practiced well this week?
