Leave ND off the schedule. They need us more than we need them schedule wise. Until they join a conference, and have to actually participate in an extra championship game, they are only hurting themselves by taking us off their schedule. Hell, last year their schedule was pretty weak because all of the power teams they had scheduled (Texas, USC, etc.) weren't really ranked that high except for Clemson.
Why should we bend over backwards to renew that rivalry? Plenty of teams we could schedule that would be more interesting out of conference IMO.

He may not have fit the prototypical qb mold but his character and playmaking excitement were above and beyond. He stayed and weathered the horrible years of Michigan football and provided arguably one of the best nd rivalry victories I've ever seen. Without him, the excitement of seeing if/when he would break off that big run...well I just don't know if I would have even tuned in to Michigan football during those dark years. Seriously.

Think of raw talent as clay. In the hands of the untrained, it is a mess, unorganized, never to become anything worthwhile.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||It's for that reason I believe he is going somewhere||
Let's face it. He knows the jig is up with Harbaugh here. He can't possibly look any better than the past few years while Michigan has struggled to find the right coach. He's taken advantage of that and he lucked out big time yesterday. The only way to go is down now for him. He leaves now and he goes out on top at MSU. If not, he may come back down to Earth very quickly. Therefore, If he's smart, he'll move on and take one of the USC jobs.

|16 weeks 3 days ago||try reading comprehension||
Try reading comprehension. the OP said "wolves" which is much different than "wolvs'". I was just clarifying there is a huge grammatical difference. Nice to know you've made it easy to identify yourself as one of the forum douches though.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||He meant Wolvs'||
He meant Wolvs', as in short for wolverines. Not actual Wolves.
While I agree that it was sort of odd I highly doubt Herbstreit meant any disrespect. If anything, OSU has accused Herbie on many occasions that he didn't seem to be enough of a homer in their eyes.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||I suppose||
I suppose you are correct, there were more than a handful of games where they did score fast. That wasn't really my point. My point was there are greater merits to a skilled defense and mediocre offense vs a mediocre defense and a high powered offense.
Basically our current Harbaugh team vs RRod's as I described.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Offense is more exciting to watch. But..||
Offense is more exciting to watch, ala the Denard era w/ RRod. It was always exciting to see the team score in a minute or so but you saw what that did to our defense. In that case, the combination of an inept GERG with a 3-3-5 and always having the defense on the field meant they were lackluster and so you watched a prevent-esque bend but don't break defense that didn't let any of our opponents score fast but also never really stopped our opposition from scoring. You know, the type of games that created scoring shoot outs with Indiana for example.
Which brings me to my point that I think you are overlooking the merits of a great defense. The ability to create turnovers ala interceptions and fumbles on your opponent's side of the field and giving your offense a chance to put points on the board in a vastly shorter field to drive to score. Makes for great scoring odds. If you have only a good offense, and a crap defense, you don't get that and you have to hope that the offense can drive the entire length of the field and odds are.. they can't do that all game.

Is Michigan's best play of the day, the power sweep? I wasn't sure... they've only mentioned it about 5 times so far today.. I'm still unsure though. Thoughts?
|20 weeks 7 hours ago||UHF||
UHF, to be fair, did have Stanley Spadowski. That would probably make for ,at least, an entertaining commentary..
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Don't||
As someone who lives in South Bend, they are one of the most annoying and delusional fanbases in existence. Their fans are insufferable.

I have Destiny for PS4 and like you, have just started playing and also from an "elderly demographic." Well I guess if you call early 30's elderly. Anyhoo you are welcome to add me.

It's also my birthday. And i thought Christmas really masked people remembering my birthday... I think Harbaugh day takes that title now.

Show some compassion and don't be a tool.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||The difference is||
One is a 6-6 season tool and the other is a michigan alum and proven track record tool. Ill take the latter..
|1 year 17 weeks ago||I disagree||
I disagree. I don't think intensity can be generalized across the whole entire defense. To some degree sure but not entirely. I saw a few plays by Taco Charlton last night and a few hits by Jarrod Wilson that would make me think otherwise. I think largely the team just looks out of position at all times. Our secondary made Gary Nova look like Drew Brees reincarnated.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Not sure how else to word it.||
Not sure how else to word it. It was from yesterday's game of Arizona Vs. Oregon. You know the ticker that runs at the bottom showing scores and the like? it said NCAAF: Dave Brandon has been quoted in saying that he prefers to wait till after the season to evaluate coaching staff. So it was either quoted last night or early this morning on ESPNU. It did not give a source at the bottom on the ticker. My source is that I saw it on ESPNU. Don't know what else to tell ya.

Adapt or die. Guess which one we picked...
|1 year 26 weeks ago||Changing M football into a brand||
It's just another way to try and change Michigan football into a unique brand. The block M is becoming our brand logo. It's been Dave Brandon's goal from day 1. Its not a bad thing. I think it looks good and when we start winning our brand will become stronger.

I don't think Calipari needs to begativly recruit. Alot of his kids are nba stars. John Wall, Demarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans, Nerlens Noel, Anthony Davis... All lottery picks in the NBA. There's that and i remember him saying in an interview around March Madness where he doesnt care if his kids do the 1 and done thing. So i imagine no pressure to stay and be a lottery pick in the NBA makes the decision hard to pass up.

Need both or Hoke is in trouble. Fans and alums are getting restless.. The RROD years definitely provoked how dire this is.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Oy vey||
So that's why he was waiting so long.. Waiting for that result to make his decision for him. Well that's unfortunate for all parties..

Out of town in indianapolis working but most of my co-workers live in northwest indiana and were supposed to travel home today. Ironically enough we are all having trouble extending hotel stay because of the big ten tourney

End of story.

He was lifelong buckeye fan and ended up choosing Michigan. Kids are allowed to change their mind. It doesn't happen often for a lifelong fan but it does happen. Circumstances haven't exactly been in our favor after this past season.
