The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

Michigan beer for a Michigan win.
|1 day 3 hours ago||It will be interesting to see||
It will be interesting to see if the offense looks more like Stanford of San Francisco as an end result. I think its going to depend largely on who wins the QB position each year. I will be very sad if Ty Issac doesn't turn into an absolute stud here. In his recruiting film he reminded me of my favorite Michigan running back of all time: Ty Wheatley. I'll take that every day of the week and twice on Saturday.
|1 day 3 hours ago||This is sort of cheating but you're not the police||
so you can't stop me.
If we win Utah I find 10-2 likely. If we lose to Utah 8-4 is where we'll be at the end of the regular season.

9-3 win over MSU OR OSU, not both.
|1 week 1 day ago||And Boise State was mostly||
And Boise State was mostly garbage from 1968 until 1999. Things can change. You might well be right that they return to that era of football, but we can't assume it. We sound petty and ignorant when we don't recognize what Dantonio has done there.

we're going to wait for you to plan something or wait until you're really busy with worth or family stuff THEN release the start time.
|1 week 3 days ago||Saban's tree is pretty good....|
|1 week 3 days ago||well, there has been recent||
well, there has been recent scuttlebutt by Steve Lorenz on twitter that Williams pass catching had really improved and he was looking like a potential option. so that's a leaset a little surprise to some people...
|1 week 3 days ago||The difference is Lloyd ran||
The difference is Lloyd ran as clean of a program as you can for 13 years meanwhlie wining our only modern era NC, 5 BTT and being a fantastic representative of the program.
He's got some cache to offset those things.
Brandon contributed virtually nothing to the program and could have easliy overruled Lloyd -- he was the AD for R'hllor's sake.
Lloyd's not perfect and I'm not thrilled about a lot of his tenure and afterwards but he's still a top 3 coach for us all time.

yea but what about Demar D- /consumed by a horde of spiders
|1 week 3 days ago||okay, thumb way to see who||
okay, thumb war to see who gets to keep their post 1, 2, 3, 4, I declare a thumb war.
|1 week 3 days ago||fooled by a long circulated||
fooled by a long circulated spoof article? take a lap.
|1 week 3 days ago||I thought it was horrible.||
I thought it was horrible. I'll give it at least half a season but Jesus that was slow, the acting was bad and there felt like a ton of just wasted screen time. ambitious to take on 90 minutes for a preimere so that might have been hurting it.

not even close. JUB is Nas, Dave Brandon is Meek Mill.
|1 week 6 days ago||I am very angry, still about Dave Brandon's||
lack of fortitude or leadership when its needed most. I am embarrassed for Brady Hoke to be treated like that by a "friend" he's still loyal to to this day. But I'm proud people like Dave Ablauf and the medical staffers were/are a part of our great institution. Its a goddamn shame the highest paid and most powerful man in the room disregarded everything they had to say. Its deeply disappointing that this silhouette of a man was appointed and allowed to run roughshod over the athletic department. I am very sad for the people who left on their own -- or worse got fired under his watch. Thank R'hllor its all over. Hopefully we all remember this era forever and learn from it.
|1 week 6 days ago||probably unreasonable and unlikely outcome||
but I'd totally accept a long run of Harbaugh til retirement, then he can slide into the now vacant Patriarch of Michigan Football role

|1 week 6 days ago||well yes, we did. but the||
well yes, we did. but the feelings we're going to get by reading this book are not warm fuzzies. Its going to be a trash tornado of sadness and anger BC of how terrible of a person, AD and Alumni that dude is.
|1 week 6 days ago||As fun as getting kicked in||
As fun as getting kicked in the nuts by the ex you really, really loved and who is now dating a dude even you find likeable and attractive.
|1 week 6 days ago||You're overselling it a||
You're overselling it a little bit, but by and large you're probably not wrong. Still, that hasn't precluded BYU or Utah from out performing us in recent years. Harbaugh is a huge X Factor, but I'm sure in due time we'll be a very good to great team but I wouldn't be surprisedif they both beat us. They are well coached; Wittingham and Mendenhall have necessarily shown themselves to be guys who get more out of less talent.
|2 weeks 53 min ago||I will be pleasantly||
I will be pleasantly surprised if we enter B1G play with only one loss...the two Utah teams aint no joke...

Tyrone Wheatley. I'm pretty sure washington still has PTSD from that bowl game
|2 weeks 4 days ago||IIRC||
both NFL and college have narrowed the uprights quite a bit since the 70s
|3 weeks 1 day ago||that's been done about a||
that's been done about a dozen times. wanted to do something different.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||BC my other options were to||
BC my other options were to piss my pants at the Jeff Moss Article or the Cowherd-Utah news. and I could give a flying fuck about either of those.

plus if the story is true it was his choice to come here to play for Bo but his dad told him "like hell you are"
|3 weeks 2 days ago||This is cheating,||
But Justin Abdelkader. He was just the guy that I hated wasn't on our team. I was happy that State won the NC with him as captain because he was just a fun hockey player to watch (and local). Now that he's a Red Wing, well...that's just about perfect.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||They are huge on character.||
They are huge on character. Owner Bob McNair won't sign off a a draftee/signee if there are virtually ANY red flags. Fans aren't huge fans of it bc it can be challenging to find and keep good talent. But if you hold up your end of the deal they are very loyal.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||tough to compare years||
tough to compare years because for large chunks of last year you and I would have started on the Eagles OL. IDGAF what system you run if you don't have a line or have many injuries to it, forecast: pain.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Marcus Mariota is a 'system guy'||
but Chip Kelly is showing that that 'system' works at all levels and the Norv Turner's and other crusty antiquated farts are making it too difficult to play QB. It doesn't have to be that hard.
The NFL has long been (and continues to be) a league of "Do what's safe, don't take chances" so they use shit that is either 1) ancient, harder to teach, harder to learn or 2) things that have had success for a long time elsewhere.
They creates a lot of these "transition problems" themselves.
