Don't forget I predicted Michigan would go 10-3, losing all three rivalry road games and winning the rest and our mid-tier, New Year's bowl game.
We're three games in and so far my prediction is holding. And, all snark aside, I'll take that as a good year despite the frustrations the three losses will bring.

While I dont know the answer to your question I do know that back in the Paleozoic era when I was in school there were limits on how often a team could appear on TV in a given year. Once. That was it until 1977 - you got to see your team once a year on TV and once only. And until 1981 all games were on ABC except for the bowl games.
I dont remember ever seeing a Michigan - Michigan State game on TV because ABC usually waited for the OSU game to televise us. Man have times changed (for the extreme better BTW).

Let's be honest here - that match-up, as much as we might hate it, would be ratings heaven for any bowl able to pull it off. And if we're facing Arizona in anything other than the Rose Bowl it will be a pretty crappy bowl game that would kill for the ratings that game will generate.
And we thought Appy State II was a bad idea.....that game (if it actually happens) will generate so much buzz it will take on a life of its own.
|22 hours 57 min ago||Both you and Space are||
Both you and Space are probably correct in that the route prolly had one or more verts that I didnt pick-up on as I was watching the ball travel four yards and the watched Eckert run out of bounds. And you're also probably right that the players interalized the booing to think it was directed at them even though it most certainly was not.
I can say however that was the one and only time I remember doing it in some 30 years of going to games and I was definitely joined by most of the stadium which is way Lloyd noticed it and commented on it afterwards. Not quite sure how fans are expected to show displeasure with coaches and their decision-making however if booing is not allowed.
And while I agree Lloyd was no idiot I will happily engage the debate on the intellectual qualifications of Mike Debord as an OC. Just because he had the job doesnt mean he was any good at it nor did it make him smart.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Booing vs Supporting the Troops||
I remember once booing as loudly and as long as I could at the coaching staff back when Carr had Debord as his OC. I don't remember the year but what i do remember is being down very late in the game and needing a score to win. We had the ball and were faced with a 4th and 15 or something and play called had Tyler Eckert running a shallow drag route to the boundry and Navarre (pretty sure it was Navarre anyways) hit him for about a 4 yard gain and that was it. Turnover on downs and game over. So I boo'd as did most of the stadium at the abject stupidity of calling a play with a four yard pass to the boundry to a hulking, slow TE as one of the options.
On the way home that night I listened as Carr railed on the fans for booing the players cause they were trying so damn hard and that booing them just wasnt right. I wanted to jump through the radio and scream "it wasnt directed at them - it was directed at your idiot OC" so I learned that the coaches hear and believe what they want to hear and believe.
So to a coach booing = not supporting the troops. No matter how incompently the "troops" are being led.

I would like to learn about (from your perspective) the following:
1. Does the new GA system work? While better than the debacle from last year is it working enough so you guys get to sit basciailly where you want/expect to sit with a minimum of hassle and time in line?
2. Is the student section (as a whole) as engaged in the game as year's past? I'm not talking about the random sorority girl who's there to see and be seen but has the overall excitement level in the section itself diminished in your opinion. I'm sorry I don't know what year you are but unless you're a freshman it would be interesting to hear if the general malise that's gripped the alumni is starting to spread to the students. Apathy is far worse than anger.
3. Is it fun? At it's core attending football games MUST be fun for students want to do so. Sorry - there isnt a requirement they go nor is their a moral imperative the stands are full. They go for the same reason I used to go - it was FUN. Now granted it was a hell of lot easier to have fun back in the late seventies when you could sit whereever the hell you wanted to and could bring a freaking pony keg into the stadium and light doobies with no hassles but still, the game itself must be fun. Is it?
I appreciate you taking this project on. I'll be interested to read your diary and hear your thoughts.

It seems like most people around here have move well beyond the hate they used to have for us and are now in the "isn't that cute" stage of patronization.

Not so much.
|1 week 1 day ago||Way back in 2010 one of the||
Way back in 2010 one of the first threads I created was shortly after the Purdue game and just before Wisconsin where I made the case that Brandon needed to give Rich an extension immediately to keep recruiting in tact. After all we were 7-3, bowl eligible for the first time in three years and improving. Then came Wisconsin, OSU and MSU where my thesis was blown apart. I remember watching the OSU game that year thinking "this is it - Rich is done" and resigning myself to the inevetable regime change that was about to occur.
I had the same general feeling Saturday night. Maybe Hoke can rally and turn things around (I surely hope so for his and the programs sake) but I just dont see it happening right now. I want it to (I predicted we'd win 10 games this year) but I never expected us to get curb-stomped like we just did. That was both jarring and embarrassing.
Just like I didnt think we'd get curb-stomped by Wisconsin, OSU & MSU back in 2010.

"This is not an offensive coordinator thing. This is a program thing. It is never going to be any better with Hoke in Ann Arbor."

|1 week 1 day ago||I'm still pissed and||
I'm still pissed and embarrassed about Saturday night but I do have to ask myself - does anybody care? My expectations for this season have been severely tempered by the game - not that we lost (I sort of expected we would) but rather HOW we lost. That was not expected and is a very scary harbinger for the future. I mean seriously - does anybody in the Athletic Department from top to bottom see the results at ND as unacceptable and demand accountability? For example:
1. Two years ago, following a dismal blocking performance on the West Coast, Wisconsin's HC Brett Bielma fired the OLine coach the next morning and replaced him with a graduate assistant.
2. Last year, following a dismal late night performance, USC's AD Pat Hayden fired Lane Kiffin before he could re-enter the building when they returned home and replaced him with the OC giving them the entire year to conduct a coaching search.
Yes - I know actions above are not considered the "Michigan Way" but GODDAMN IT - neither is 3-7 in our last 10 games and neither is getting our ass kicked and shut out at Notre Dame. Saturday night sure felt a lot to me like the end of the RichRod era when Wisconsin then OSU and finally Mississippi state crushed us and it didnt seem like the staff had a clue how to fix things.
What the current staff is doing now is NOT WORKING! Anybody who can read a scoreboard can tell that unless 3-7 is considered "working" and something needs to change IMO.

Interesting question but I thought you were going to ask about the previous possession which is where I thought Rich made a poor choice (although it worked out for him). 4th & inches from mid-field with 2 minutes left on the clock and UTSA with only one TO left. He punted and gave them the ball on the 20 with a TON of time to either get a FG or a TD for the win. Got the INT a few plays later but still - why give them a chance?
That was the one that was a head-scratcher to me. The one you referenced was with so little time on the clock I dont think there was bad choice to be made.

As the game ended we serenaded the dejected domers with "there go the Irish" as they left the stadium and then walking down those ramps literally screaming "IT'S GREAT...TO BE...A MICHIGAN WOLVERINE. IT'S GREAT....TO BE....A MICHIGAN WOLVERINE" high fiving everybody and everything in maize n blue. Then back to the tailgate where we were joined by the players family's and we sat on the curb and drank bourbon and smoked cigars until late in the night (thanks for the stogies Mr Rivas).

I think Funk was dealing with some fairly signficant personal issues last year that were compounded by being forced to work for a coordinator who is looking more and more each day like the desease, not the cure.
That said I do think it's premature to judge him based on a single game against an overmatched opponent. But "so far - so good" at least.
FWIW I think we're going to learn more and more as the year goes on just how dysfunctional the offense was under Borges. Nobody really wants to say anything yet but my guess will be that will change somewhat if the offense does continue to produce results missing from the past couple of years.

I'm so freaking confused by these Legends numbers and how they are given out I've given up trying to understand it. What I don't get is if a player from the past is great enough to have their jersey retired then leave the damn thing retired and don't play this random player de jour allottment of legend numbers every year. I have no clue what number players are or were and if we should be honoring the current player, the past player or the future player when they dole them out again.
As stupid as it seemed at the time - Service & Freedom on the back of the Air Force jersey's were easier to figure out than this nonsense. I think there's a reason we are the ONLY school fucking with our retired numbers in the manner we do. It's stupid.

A man walks into a bar on the 10 the floor of a hotel and sits down. The guy next to him says "buy me drink and I'll jump out that window- fly in a circle and then fly back in". So the guy buys him a drink and sure enough the guy does exactly what he promised.
Now the guy cannot believe what he just saw and asks the guy how in the hell did he do that. "Easy he says - you can do it too - let me show you. All you have to do is hold the bottom of the bar stool like this, take three step and then launch yourself outside the window. Once airborne make sure to hold your arms out like I did for lift and then kick your legs if you feel you're losing altitude. Anybody can do it if they try."
So the guy does exactly as he was instructed and then promptly plummets 10 stories to his death. As everybody's looking out the window the bartender walks over to the first guy and says "You know what? You're an asshole when you've been drinking Superman."

If you want to watch the game with me take the Sonny S over to Middle Bass ($6 one way and runs every hour on the half hour back and forth) walk about 1/4 mile to the General Store. They converted that to a pizza/bar this year and I know Ed the owner and he told me he'd put the Michigan game on one his big screens in the bar so I know we'll have it.
If you want to watch at PiB I would recommend NOT going to Frosty's unless you like having beer "accidently" spilled on you repeatidly. As stated above - it's a "bro bar" and with OSU against Navy on at the same time the crowd will be in no mood to hear or watch anything Michigan. The Roundhouse might have it on one of their TVs (maybe) but good luck getting anybody to change a channel if they don't. MadDog will come on at 2:00 though and he's funny as hell. Tony's Garage is no more and now goes by "Reel Bar" and that actually might not be a bad bet. Last time I was there (about a month ago) they had a LOT of different games on multiple TVs BUT they will have a band playing in the afternoon so be prepared for dancers.
Serious though about watching the game on Middle Bass though. I'll be at the bar with my wife and one Michigan Hockey's ex- assistant coaches FWIW

I still shake my head and wonder how that is possible. Watching Bo's teams growing up and then Moeller, Carr and the steady progression of All American lineman it is still hard for me to grasp that.
It would be like reading an opponent saying a road game at Michigan was "playing in front of the smallest crowd we've ever seen and we've played at some very small schools".

Offensive line starts shaky but slowly and steadily improves throughout season till at the end we're not discussing it anymore. Running back remains unsettled with all three players showing flashes of brilliance but nobody hammering the job home. Gardner will get knocked out of a game at some point with an injury and Morris will play well in relief and will start (and win) the following week before Gardner returns. Mini QB controversy ensues but is quickly put out when Gardner has best game of year his first game back. Finish second in the east to either OSU or MSU but win New Year's bowl game over upper tier SEC school like Georgia or Auburn and finish season in top 10.

deferred gratification The ideological principle which encourages individuals and groups to postpone immediate consumption or pleasure in order to work, train, invest, or gain in some other way an enhanced return at a future date.
To me it's basically why some people (like my late Father) would always save 25% of his paycheck no matter what and thus had a signficant net worth in his later years while others (like me ex-wife) believed that if you had $100 that only meant you could borrow $1,000 right now.

I am VERY optimistic about this year for the following reasons:

4. Our defense is freaking loaded with talent
5. We have one of the best defensive coordinators in the country and he is about to unleash the dogs of war with an attack-oriented scheme
6. Our young, currently struggling offensive line has roughly two months to gell prior to the MSU game and the meat of our schedule.
7. Our special teams look rock solid
8. Our wide recievers are big, fast and extremely deep in talent
9. JMFR will be fully healed from his ACL tear and ready to wreck havoc on opposing offensives
10. Brady Hoke is willing to take chances on 4th down and plays to win, not to not lose
I guess I'd turn the question around and ask why should anybody be overly pessimistic about our chances? I honestly dont understand that.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||No it hasn't changed. I||
No it hasn't changed. I still think we run the table outside of the three rival road games maybe steal one of those (ND perhaps) to get to 9 or 10 wins pre-bowl game. Fortunately the schedule is back-loaded so the line has time to grow and mature between now and when things start to get really tough.
I'm not as pessimistic as some about the results of the scrimmage. Offensives ALWAYS look worse than defenses for the simple reason that the defense usually has a pretty good idea of what's coming based on personel and sets. Think of it like gameplanning against Borges - most defensive coordinators worth a shit knew what he was coming with and aligned accordingly. Plus the o-line was missing two starters so not sure how much you can read into what 60% of our starting o-line was able to do against a defense who knew what play was coming and wasnt worried about misdirection or constraint plays.

It's undeniably gorgeous, opulent and is probably the women's Field Hockey center to end all women's Field Hockey centers but I'm sorry - this thing bothers me. Watch the video and look at the jaw-dropping wonder of the ladies as they view it for the first time. They built a fucking Taj Mahal for the woman's Field Hockey team on the backs of the football fans by charging ridiculously high annual seat licence fees and then funnelled those monies over to construction projects for sports like these so we can say Michigan stands alone in the women's Field Hockey stadium race. I'm sorry but I don't give two shits about the quality of the women's Field Hockey team center and the fact that the football fans were forced to subsidize this cathedral pisses me off.
I have zero problems if people want to give money to build these facilities - have at it. I think it would be fantastic if all the players parents and lovers of women's Field Hockey got together and raised money to construct this. I would totally support their efforts. But to force people supporting one sport (football) to donate money so they can build all these new, wonderful mansions for the other sports is hurting the abillity and willingness for people to attend the sport they DO care about by pricing it way higher than can be reasonably justified.
