|1 week 4 days ago||UCLA game||
We had a 10 point lead in the 4th quarter. In believe we had double digit leads in the 4th Qtr in all those games. That team should have played for the MNC.
|1 week 4 days ago||Henson was from Brighton||
But to add to your point, we've been really good at recruiting nationally since I've been following them in the mid-80s. Toomer, Hayes, Todd Collins, Jarret Irons, Griese, Brady, and on and on and on. I don't think we have the success of the 80s, 90s and early 00s without those guys.
|1 week 5 days ago||3 out of 12 years||
And we didn't win the Rose Bowl in any of those years. We also lost to OSU in two of those seasons. This isn't Purdue or Illinois. That's not good enough.
|1 week 5 days ago||1996 was comparable||
In 1993, we had a couple very close losses, but were coming off a couple blowout wins. And the 1995 team lost some close games, but we knew Biakabutuka was a beast and we still had Toomer and Hayes, not to mention Jarret Irons and a pretty good defensive line.
But that 1996 game @ OSU? I stayed in my dorm room and watched it by myself. We played so horribly the week before at home against PSU, not to mention the egg we laid at Purdue. I thought the game would be over by halftime. There was little to no confidence Griese. That's probably the best comparison out of the years you mentioned.
|1 week 5 days ago||At least those were to good teams||
Wisconsin went to the Rose Bowl, Ohio State the Sugar. And that OSU game fell apart because of our turnovers. We were moving the ball at ease in the first half of that game and it should have been a lot closer going into halftime. The bowl game I blame on the guys playing for a lame duck coach.
This year, we're losing to mid-pack B1G teams. It makes a difference in my mind though I see your perspective.
|1 week 5 days ago||Would've had 12 wins||
If Borges didn't go all Borges in the Iowa game and forget that we had Denard in the backfield.
|1 week 5 days ago||For Hoke to get 2 more years||
He needs to do a better job from here through next season. There's only so much blaming the other guy that you can do. And there's only so much blaming the youth that you can do. The players have to show improvement and another 4-5 loss season is not good enough in this dumpster fire of a conference.
|1 week 6 days ago||24-17||
Yes, you may have been too drunk
I think we got the go ahead touchdown late in the game.
|1 week 6 days ago||What's the difference between him and RichRod?||
They're both spread guys right?
|1 week 6 days ago||I thought this was Cooper's best coaching job...||
|1 week 6 days ago||They should've beaten us||
We played like crap most of that game. But a win is a win over OSU I guess.
|1 week 6 days ago||I won't ask your age||
But do you know the difference between those Michigan teams and seasons and this one? We had All-Americans at skill positions and future NFLers on the lines. Biakabutuka was a first round NFL pick. We don't have any of those running out of the tunnel Saturday. Oh, we also had Woodson on that 1995 team. And Amani Toomer. And Mercury Hayes.
In 1993 you had Wheatley and Todd Collins. I'm sorry, the difference in talent is wide. Those teams would smash this team by 20-30 points. These are kids and anything is possible, but those teams that you reference for your hope had a lot going for them heading into The Game.
|1 week 6 days ago||OSU just needed a tie for the Rose Bowl||
Good job Coop!
|1 week 6 days ago||I doubt this game is over by halftime||
Our D does not suck, so they should be able to keep it respectable going into halftime. But I doubt we have many extended drives and the D finally gets gassed in the second half.
|1 week 6 days ago||I sorta wish they'd wait a couple weeks to visit||
Wait until December when we're not getting the doors blown off by OSU. If anything, those kids may come away more impressed with OSU.
|2 weeks 7 hours ago||Are you assuming year 4 is a bounce-back year?||
If we are asking the same questions about this team next year, then Hoke is probably done. That would be three consecutive years of mediocre results. Also, isn't Hoke the DL coach? The position he coaches isn't doing that great either and needs to perform at a higher level in 2014.
I don't think any coach should be fired after three years. I thought firing RichRod was a poor move and I think this would be the case as well. You can keep a guy around just because he's winning National Signing Day.
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||I still support the team||
But now I find more productive things to do on my Saturdays. I'll still buy my Michigan clothes, probably watch whatever bowl game they're in as long as it's not on NFL Network and keep a glimmer of hope that OSU forgets how to move forward with the ball on offense.
But now I'm more interested in what the offseason brings.
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||Bowl games are not about fairness||
It's about taking the team who will sell tickets and get people watching on TV. Plus, Sparty probably will not qualify it they fall out of the BCS top 14 after losing the BTCG.
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||B1G Schedule||
RichRod's main struggles were against Sparty, Wisconsin, PSU and OSU. Those are the four most successful programs in the B1G the past 5-10 years.
Lloyd hasn't faced Wisconsin in three years, and this year was the first year we've played PSU (Loss). Our B1G schedule has been easier the past three years. We should be better in conference.
Swapping out Wisconsin and Penn State in 2009 and 2010 probably makes us bowl eligible in the former year and an 8-9 win team in the latter year.
|2 weeks 15 hours ago||Thank you for this||
I don't want Bama.
|2 weeks 15 hours ago||2006 @ ND||
A dominating road win over a top-5 team. As we see, just playing well on the road isn't easy. Plus it served as a springboard to a pretty good regular season.
As great as the bowl win over Florida was, there wasn't anything on the line except pride.
|2 weeks 15 hours ago||Our schedule was significantly easier in 2011||
That's helped us towards an 10-2 season regular season.
If we had Minnesota and NW on the schedule in 2010 instead of Wisconsin and Penn State, you could be looking at a 9-3 regular season instead of 7-5.
Conversely, if we had PSU and Wisconsin on the schedule in 2011, it's possible that we only split those two games at best.
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||Year 4?||
I do believe that with the schedule they had, and OSU firing Tressel that Michigan at least duplicates the record with Hoke.
1. I believe he would have made the correct D-Coordinator hire and gotten out of the way.
RichRod excelled at beating bad teams and the 2010 schedule was loaded with them. I think that reasonable people felt that he just needed to hire a top defensive coordinator and get out of the way.
BTW - I don't look at that bowl game as anything more than a team realizing they were playing for a guy who wouldn't be their coach in a few days.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Most were due to stupid 7 step drops||
that Borges continues to call. If the man had a running game to take the pressure off or a better designed passing game, you could fairly evaluate him.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Pass rush||
Pressure on the QB is the name of the game with all these pass happy offenses. We're not doing that very well. Our front four generates little consistent pass rush and our blitzes rarely get home. I would hate to see what would happen if we got stuck in the Gator Bowl against a Mizzou or Texas A&M.
We'll find out how good our defense is against OSU. But I'm not very encouraged after giving up over 150 yards on the ground to Iowa.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Well, Cleveland is in Ohio||
I will put that on all the truck drivers that came up from Columbus for the game.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Remember Brien Taylor?||
He can compete with Bush for worst #1 pick ever in baseball. And he'll end up serving more time in prison than Matt Bush.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||What about the standing TE?||
I think I hated that most about those Iowa teams in the 80s and 90s. It really annoyed me.
Oh, and Hayden Fry's mustache.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||/s ?||
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Kwame Brown||
He's more of a lifetime acheivement award nominee in my book. Bennett is still 20 so I'll give him a couple years before putting him in the "worst ever" category.
