The defense will be the rock that this team depends upon, but the offensive line is worrisome. I see losses to MSU, ND, OSU and one more. I hope that I am wrong, and I look forward to watching the team play.

This is glorious!
|1 week 4 days ago||Tim Howard is a beast||
I wonder if Hoke could get him to play FS?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||This looks like a really good player for both Michigan and Det||
The hockey people at TSN say he is like Darren Helm with good scoring ability (elite skater), and a couple of the hosts said that he had captain potential in the NHL. Given the issue with leadership at Michigan recently, this could be a really nice addition. Guys who play at high speed and are willing to be team players are nice to have.

1995 vs. Ohio State. Watching Touchdown Tim and both lines do their thing was epic. It was Buckeye Schadenfreude at its best!!!!!
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Standing ovation to the men of the winged wheel||
It is simply incredible that they pulled this off. Organizational belief and experience winning is huge!
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Good luck boys||
It is too bad that we couldn't make the playoffs the last two years, but it is hard to blame them. The defensive cupboard is rather bare, and, while the young goalie was better than expected, things don't look that much better in the rearguard next year.
There will always be new players to root for, and I have faith that Red and company will find some good players to fill in.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||This makes complete sense||
Shaka is from Milwaukee, and the expectations will be significantly lower than UCLA. I think it is a great move for him, and I am happy for him. We went to college together, and I think that he is one of the finest people that I have ever met.

The Stars PA announcer just said that Rich Peverly is conscious and headed to the hospital.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||I am not a fan of this||
Watkins is a good player, and he would fit nicely with Calvin. Having said that, this team has so many holes (esp. on defense) and doesn't have a 5th round pick, so I think that the only truly stupid move is to trade up. This seems like an especially bad idea given how deep the draft is. Detroit might have a legitimate chance to trade a back a few times to pick up picks if teams want to trade up to get Lewan, Evans or one of the DBs. Personally, I would love to see them draft Lewan if they stay at 10, and then slot Rieff at RT or LG.
Just my two cents.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||What a treat it was to watch Nick!||
What a classy guy and player! I wish that Detroit could clone him.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Absolutely.||
Make his a FS, like Rod Woodson was late in his career), and we have our replacement for Louis Delmas for a year. Draft a FS type to learn under him, and he can help teach the young CBs.
|19 weeks 21 hours ago||Great effort||
The broadcasters are so excited that they are cutting each other off. I wish I could see video of this! What a milestone moment for the team to take a top-20 team to OT!
|21 weeks 3 hours ago||I wish we could get Coon to play football||
It is clear he understands leverage, and our lines could use some help. Even if he could be a scout team helper, that would be awesome!
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Maybe, this is our radio broadcast team next year?||
One can dream.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks.||
I am looking forward to seeing the impact he has on Michigan!
|27 weeks 1 day ago||That's one!||
Eat it, Buckeyes!
|27 weeks 4 days ago||What a great show!||
It was great to see Stevie Y. and The Perfect Human, again! Let's Go Red Wings!
|30 weeks 3 days ago||Great hire!||
Kenyon football and Michigan grad school alumnus here! Chris Creighton has worked his way up the coaching ladder, and he is the kind of guy would value a chance to coach in FBS. While I am surprised that Curtis Blackwell wasn't in the mix given his work with Sound Mind, Sound Body, I think that this is a great hire. Creighton understands how to win with less talent, and that gives him a chance to be really good at EMU. We'll see how this works out.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Another thing about FEI||
We have been really bad in the Special Teams FEI in the last few years.
|32 weeks 16 hours ago||It couldn't happen to a nicer coach!||
Eat that, Saban! Now, if MSU can beat OSU, and Auburn loses next week, we could have a title game without the SEC and OSU.
|33 weeks 20 hours ago||Dave Brandon needs to look at Hoke's record in red letter games||
This is not pretty, and the same standard should be applied to him as was applied ot Rich Rod. Borges and Funk should be gone, minimum.
|33 weeks 22 hours ago||Has Taco played||
I don't remember seeing Taco Charlton on the field. Has anyone seen him get in today?
|33 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks for posting||
I am a little surprised and bummed that Rutgers is not on the list, because they will be joining the conference shortly. Maryland, JHU and Cornell should be really good learning experiences, and they can hopefully start to win a few more of the close games than they did this year. I would imagine that we are another couple of years out from being deep enough to be competitive against really good teams, but this ship is headed in the right direction.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||Princeton is really fun to watch||
I am heading down to watch them play Yale at 1 pm on Saturday to get me ready for the Michigan-Northwestern game. The starting QB completed his first 29 passes against Cornell a few weeks ago, and their OC is the anti-Borges. They spread it out, and are completely undpredictable.
|35 weeks 17 hours ago||I will be curious to hear what the deal with Thomas Gordon was.||
Was he hurt, or did he break team rules again?
|35 weeks 17 hours ago||Plenty of good seats available at Ford Field||
Motor City Bowl here we come.
|35 weeks 20 hours ago||This field position is brutal||
Let's hope we can flip a field here sometime in the first half.
|35 weeks 21 hours ago||Florida looks poised to miss the bowl season||
Given how poorly they are playing today, I would be surprised if they can get to six wins.
|35 weeks 4 days ago||Someone we haven't played in a while||
Our chances would be minimal, but I would love to play Georgia, LSU, Texas A&M or Oklahoma. Part of the fun for me in bowls is to see Michigan play another power that we haven't met in a while. To be perfectly honest, given how young the team is, it would be a good learning experience to play one of the above.
