Those were the days:
|2 days 21 hours ago||C'mong. We know the answer.||
This is the part where we say "Beat Sparty" repeatedly all fucking week, watch the game on Saturday for about twelve minutes, and then get horribly, shit-faced, sloppy drunk and decide it wise mow the lawn in the dark with a mild head injury.
My prediction: MSU is going to roger Michigan all afternoon. This is not because of superior talent. Michigan has more 4 and 5 star players than MSU has, and this has been true dating back to 2008 and well before.
The difference is that MSU has had football coaches who actually coach and develop football players better. They're not imaginitive, but they're strong in coaching fundamentals. If you think this fact is going to be overcome by Michigan over a by week period, thenforget it. That's delusional.
Sure, okay, yeah.... I expect a few Sparty fuck ups on Saturday. They haven't played one game this year without some really dumb mistakes, but nothing to cost them a game. At least I'm not pretending those errors equal a Michigan upset. That'd be horseshit.
There is not one matchup of player or team that favors Michigan this Saturday. This is why I'm expecting the worst loss of the year, and quite possibly another shutout. Expect a lot of "Hold Me" posts, while UM fan visits to puppy and kitty cat webpages skyrocket on Saturday afternoon and Sunday. I'll be there with you, or maybe the emergency room. I haven't decided.
|2 days 21 hours ago||This is the fundamental problem with college football||
the referees are by and large terrible, inconsistent and incompetent. Refs at the high school level are the same, and ironically maybe a little better. I don't know about the NFL, as NFL football is virtually unwatchable, so I don't really care. At all. I just know that NFL refs are paid more, which tells us all something right there about how fucked up the ref profession has become. Do they do a better job at the NFL level? Is it more challenging. We know the answer to that question.
The refereeing at college football games has become so bad, it's going to take a few more blown calls like ND at FSU for someone to decide to something about it. But whatever that something is, as long as you have human intervention, you can expect a heaping helping of human error along with a super-sized order of bias.
People are talking about FSU vs. ND this week. For the last time, Notre Dame is IN NO POSITION WHATSOEVER TO BE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE REFS!!! They were undefeated beneficiaries of some of the worst refing in the nation. Ignoring that fact is just disingenuous.
When I was a little kid, it was Charles White diving into the endzone from 3 years out for 6 pts without the fucking football for the game-winning touchdown. I've grown up with that vision in my brain.
It's all shit thanks to ref fuckups. Expect more, not less.

|1 week 2 days ago||Michigan is one separated shoulder or tweaked ankle||
from the same level of mushroom cloud disaster, except we have no Tevin Colman and no legitimate OL to speak of.
Could matters be worse for UM? Sure. But what's worse? "Worse" is officially moving in after "just hanging out" with you since oh about January 2007.
|1 week 2 days ago||Exactly||
My response to this is "wait for it.....waaiiiit for it......

It's gonna suck you guyz.....
Thanks for the great preview Brian.
|1 week 5 days ago||I don't think this much matters.||
The boycott is happening anyway and there will be a shit ton of empty student section seats Saturday night. More comic relief at Michigan's expense. And the press knows all about this boycott, so announcers are going to call attention and play it up during the fucking broadcast.
So they've already lost the argument before it even started. The only ones who can help the troops are the generals who have been nestled comfortably in their plush little bunkers since the Minnesota game fiasco. Nobody is questioning the fortitude of the players. They are going to play hard as they do - whether home or away - in front of 110K or 3K fans.

|1 week 6 days ago||MGOQuestion: Flanksteak = Aracherra, right?||
Or are these different cuts?
Knuckle-dragging caveman everywhere may want to know.
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||If Michigan's defense can make Gary Nova look like||
John Elway, then WTF chance does Michigan have against Hackenberg?
This is the worst OL that Michigan has faced since App State, but I think I can safely bet my "Yes, I'm a douchebag!" fedora that the Nittany Lions roll out 400 yards of "ooohhhhh ffffffuuuu...." offense on Saturday night.
|2 weeks 13 hours ago||Hurray||
We suck again!!!!
|2 weeks 13 hours ago||I wish I had bacon in my name too||
It'd be awesome.
|2 weeks 18 hours ago||And endless train of people. All pointing and laughing at UM.||
And they're right....
You just knew a "feel good" story about Rodriguez was coming the minute they hired him at Arizona. It was only a matter of time. It's happened too because he's a brilliant football coach. People hate him with a passion. No fucking shit. People hated Bo with a passion too. Except they were our competitors, not colleagues.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Duke vs. Ga Tech and Cincy vs. Miami||
Should be quite good games as well.
Cincy has Munchie Legaux at starting QB so that'll be fun to watch.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Hmmm||
Last time Michigan was 2-4 (1967) they didn't fill Michigan Stadium either.
This is not a surprise.
Also, Penn State beat Rutgers on the road, so there's that.
Plus MIchigan football fans are fed up and pissed off at David Brandon. Can you fault them for wanting to tell Dave and his marketing dolts loud and clear to fuck off?
But he's not going to give a shit about 4,000 tickets, since the PA system will announce a lie anyway.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks for posting||
These were some great plays. I'm proud of the players. Khalid Hill really blasted that corner on his block.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||If there's any doubt that Michigan footbal cursed....||
So did we get the Florida 2005, 2006 or 2007 defense?
Or the 2008-2010 Baltimore Ravens defense?
No, we got the 1999 and 2001 Notre Dame defense. Lots of potential, but dammit.
When Hoke is told to hit the road at seasons end, I assume that GMatt will be gone with him.
And so it was written that Michigan football must, forever and ever, not have nice things.
