It's hard to isolate yourself from all of the negative noise around the program. The players have said as much. They try to ignore it, but it doesn't help.
We're all in this together. Having the players, coaches, fans, band, cheerleaders, the bus driver, everybody, all fired up at the same time to KICK SPARTY's ASS is what we need right now. So thanks, Sparty.
We can go back to bickering among ourselves next week.

They didn't execute.
Hard to figure it out. When they practiced defending it, they looked great.

If you're going to be showing "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" video clips, can I make a request?

But you should never announce your game plan like that in public.
See, this is why Hoke never tells us anything.
|1 day 2 hours ago||This was actually a dumb||
This was actually a dumb move on Sparty's part.
We've been walking around with our tail between our legs in a self-induced coma felling sorry for ourselves and hoping that big bad MSU won't hurt us too much.
This is the slap in the face we need to snap us out of it and remember "Oh, yeah we're Michigan. And you're just Michigan State. Now, where were we?"

Hoke should parade the entire team past it on the way to practice.
Wake up call. Time to show some fucking fight and pride.

It sounds trivial, but it's just one more thing that adds to the perception of decline. We couldn't even execute a simple thing like guarding the M.
It's the icon of how far we've fallen.

He could have made the vigil a sponsored event by LifeLock.

I'll put my money where my mouth is . . .
I want Brandon gone, whether it gets us a Harbaugh or not.
This goes beyond football wins and losses.

Mrs. petered0518 Harbaugh.
Mrs. petered0518 Long.
Mrs. petered0518 Mullen.
Mrs. petered0518 Miles.
Oops, there goes the bell.

We're big on revisionist history around here, but 90% of the CFB world thought Bo was an asshole in his prime. He did not care who he pissed off, just like his good buddy Bobby Knight.
We have a nice well-mannered guy now. How's that working out?
You need to have an edge to compete with all those other SOB's that have an edge.

But FL has to play a bunch of SEC west teams each year and those games count.
Urban Meyer has a much easier life than any SEC coach, and so would Harbaugh. It is what it is.
|1 day 11 hours ago||No.||

Plus, and I mean this in the most flattering way possible, he can out-douche even Urban Meyer.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Jim harbaugh + NSD in||
Jim harbaugh + NSD in February + fickle teenagers = a good 2015 class even with a late January hire date.
|1 day 12 hours ago||I second this. It's all||
I second this. It's all about trajectory. Does Michigan look like a program that can regularly beat OSU and MSU?
I think 2015 will be better under Hoke . . . but not better enough. He doesn't have the edge and acumen to go toe to toe with Meyer and Dantonio.

Muppets, Posbangs, Yay! Girls . . . we'd have it all.
|1 day 12 hours ago||He's got to get a win at MSU||
He's got to get a win at MSU or OSU and look convincing doing it (i.e. not because of an injury to Conner Cook or something like that).
6-6 with losses to MSU and OSU is not going to keep him here.
|1 day 12 hours ago||That was Brandon skimming||
That was Brandon skimming some off.
|1 day 12 hours ago||That was one of the worst||
That was one of the worst Michigan games ever . . . .because it did not have to be that way.
In the first half, both teams wanted to run but neither could. Halftime was 3-3. In the second hslf, USC adjusted and went to the quick passes. Michigan kept trying to run. Ball game.
We could have adjusted the same way USC did. We had the players. We also did what USC did in other games like 2006 OSU and the 2007 season Cap One bowl. But in the Rose Bowl we kept trying to re-live 1997.
This was my biggest fear about Hoke,that he would be DeBord 2.0. For a while it looked like that would not be the case. But here we are back to lizard brain under-center Manball. Ball game.
|1 day 15 hours ago||For those of us who don't||
For those of us who don't live in Michigan, how exactly does Regent voting work?
Is voting by local District, or does the entire state vote for the UM Regents? Why would most of the state care about a University of Michigan Regent?
Do you also vote for Regents at other public schools, say MSU? What's to keep people who don't like a particular University from trying to fix the votes and vote for somebody not necessarily in that school's interest?
Seems like an unusual arrangement. I'm curious how it works.

To this day I still can't watch that thing without getting the dry heaves.
We thought we were going to be Oregon East. Instead we became Oregon State East.

GMatt could possibly stay around a little while. What was his relationship with Harbaugh at Baltimore? I've heard some good things, but I've also heard things like GMatt was going to be pushed out.

Hoke will go coach at a mid-major program somewhere. Maybe he will wind up back at SDSU someday, where he has a good track record.

I hope he does that and pulls a DeBord Cap One Bowl on us.
Ha! There's not a prayer.

Gave you another upvote for honesty. It put you at a very cool 1111 total.

This is the best comment on this thread.
WE did this. This is not something Dantonio did to us.
He got their heads out of their asses and fielded a competitive program, but he still would not be able to walk all over mid-90's Michgian. We're the ones that allowed that.
And we're the ones that need to fix it.

I would not be too hard on him. Yes he snarked at everything that moved back then, which could get really old.
But imagine if Indiana started talking some trash about how they were going to dominate in the conference in the future. Our first response would not be restraint. Or when Purdue actually tried it with Danny Hope. Our reaction was to laugh, and rightly so.
You only know what you know at the time. Your only reaction can't be to assume that every team is going to turn into Alabama just to be safe.
