West2, that 2 point play call was criminally stupid.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Coach Hoke....||
Would you like some meat, some other meat or maybe this other kind of meet? The Mone family is really a big believer in the Atkins diet. Looks yummy.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Yeah that's true,||
But he is one hell of an actor....

For them, the wins and losses don't matter to me. I think for their self esteem, they shouldn't have to be on a total loser team that never wins a game. That can be detrimental to their enjoyment of the sport. There is a "type" of parent that takes "winning" to the extreme, but that is another topic for discussion.
For the boys, sports to me is about learning skills, working hard, putting in the time to improve, being part of a team and a good teammate, learning to dedicate yourself to something (other than video games) that will teach you life lessons.
But for the Michigan football team, that has another set of rules for me. They are young men and a well paid coaching staff who dedicate a lot of time and effort into their craft. They have been chosen to play football at Michigan because they are the elite talent at a sport they picked to excel at. While I enjoy the Michigan man mantra and take pride that we are not a pay it forward type program like Ohio and the SEC, it still comes down to wins / loses for me in the end.
When I have to listen to my meathead Sparty co-workers make comments like, "I guess Michigan is happy just to have kept it close against Ohio". The Ohio performance gives me some hope for the future, but also miffs me to no end why these basic changes, were not done 2 months ago. It is getting old as a Michigan fan/alum to have to go, "Oh, well, there is always next year, to try and win a B10 title." This B10 title drought makes one of the backbones that Bo brought to Michigan, "Those who stay, will be champions", a joke after a while. There is nothing that should be keeping Michigan from winning a B10 title once every 4 years. It just shows how unlucky and mis-managed our program has been for the last 10+ years. That is what makes it just about wins / loses for me at this point of the program. Maybe when we get over the hump, my view may change. But until that day comes, no moral victories for me when it comes to Michigan Football.

Class of 85'....
|4 days 9 hours ago||Hell, even Ohio has trick 2 point conversion plays ready to use.||
And it loks like they stole the idea from Oregon.
|4 days 9 hours ago||We should have pulled out all the stops on our attempt...||
Can you honestly say that the 2 point conversion that we ran against Ohio, was the best one we have been saving in our pocket for just such an opportunity? I don't and that is why Borges has been and will always be our source of eternal pain and suffering until he is gone...
|5 days 6 hours ago||Yeah,||
It looked like Jim Delany was doing his best to make sure the refs handed him an undefeated OSU, to represent the B10 in the NC game. Hopefully Sparty can stick it right up those Ohio buck nuts....
|5 days 8 hours ago||Yep,||
agree on Al's fate. The throwback plays worked great. Because it was setup by great plays keeping the defense guessing the whole day. Not being used/called out of despiration because nothing else was working, like when we called on this play throughout Oct/Nov.
|5 days 8 hours ago||Here is my question for Al...||
that you can probably answer yourself, "Was that the goto, in you back pocket, absolute best 2 point play that we have in our arsenal?" If he says "Yes", he should be fired for not having a better play designed for just such a situation. If he says "No", he should be fired for the same incompetent play calling that comes up at the most critical point of all the other games this year, he screwed up.
Screw moral victories. This isn't Duke. Remember, this is Michigan for godsakes.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Yep, I was calling going for 2...||
even before we scored. It was the right decision, but th play call was absolutely stupid. Spread them out and give Devin options to throw to the left and right, with the third option to run. No bunch up together on the fucking goal line where one of our guys bumps into a defender and takes himself out of the play forcing Devin to throw into double coverage.
|5 days 10 hours ago||I think a couple of the refs today were Buckeye fans..||
today. That or Delany paid them off so the B10 gets someone in the NC game this year.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Yeah, no shit....||
Rock paper scissors. Rock... No wait time out Ohio. Ok let do this again. Rock. WTF Al. That was a terrible play call. I hated the formation when they lined up before the timeout. Spread them the fuck out and call something that has pass route options to BOTH sides of the field. STUPID STUPID STUPID. No moral victories here. Stand firm with the fire Borges point of view. He will ALWAYS find a way to fuck up when the rubber meets the road down the road. Might as well mitigate that now before it comes up in a game that really matters, since 7-4 was already a disaster season.
|6 days 15 hours ago||I'll go with||
41-13 ohio over Michigan. My rule with my wife is, if we are down by 20+ at halftime, I am turning off the game.

Statistically, the Tiger's offensive ranks declined each year under Borges and currently ranks 101st in the nation in total offense leading into the bowl game with Clemson. After talking with head coach Tommy Tuberville, the two agreed that Borges' resignation was the best course of action for a floundering Auburn offense.
"After speaking with coach Tuberville for the better part of 20 minutes, it became increasingly clear that Auburn needed a new offensive coordinator," Borges said in a statement Tuesday.
See the same downward pattern going on here. Hopefully Hoke and Al have a similar talk after this weekend....

I have no idea....

Bring out your dead......
|1 week 2 days ago||What the hell Coach Saban.,..||
You have only one 3 of the last 4 National Championship. WTF happened that one year? We will never forget and we will not forgive you (until you leave us for Texas or USC)..... And we return to a normal team that only wins a NC every 10 or 15 years.....
|1 week 3 days ago||You would have had me simply...||
With..."Titties and Beer"....
|1 week 3 days ago||Hey we could probably say....||
Our coaches would kick Ohio's coaches asses in a hotdog eating contest. But like in a my dad could kick you dads ass when we were little, kind of way... Or we could go for the "My AD has sold more pizzas than your AD...."
|1 week 4 days ago||Hoke always preaches||
You can't let a loss, carry over and cause another one. It looks from the data each loss is causing a worse offensive performance / result, every time they take the field. The more the coaches try to "fix the offense", the worse the team gets. That is just sad and incompetent in so many levels.
Great post. The truth hurts like a bitch sometimes.
