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

My son was on it like you. He kept yelling at the TV "he dropped it - snap the ball" right up to the time the refs stepped in for the review.
To be honest I didnt see it and thought it was a clean catch. FWIW you would think they would have some protocol in place whereby the player making the play signals to the QB to hurry up the next play as he, more than anyone else, has to know the catch wasnt clean.
And totally agree with others that while I wish we would've won I'm not crushed we lost. Thought overall they played pretty good and a hellofa lot better than last year.

Would be me (I live down here)
or Eric in Dayon - he's cool as hell.
or Magnum PI, Benoit Balls and any of the other fellow "buckeye" brethern who are behind enemy lines as I am.
Or Zolton, Desmond, Charles, Elvis, Ricky, Kyle, ect., ect. ect.
You can have all the jerkoffs who go to school in Columbus thank you very much. I have no use for any of them.

I always see Wally Cox whenever I think of him
|3 hours 46 min ago||Inquiring minds want to know....||
I'm dying to know what Section 1 looks like in real life. I always pictured a dude about my age but short, thin and and wearing thick glasses.
And did he announce himself as "Section 1" when he asked the question or did you guys just recognize him?
|4 hours 12 min ago||Not to be critical OP but.....||
I really hate these posts.
They imply that a large portion of the Michigan fanbase is NOT supporting the team and therefore those few loyalists that do remain must "stay the course" in the face of negativism and that's simply not the case.
I read the following valid criticisms last night and again this morning to the board as well as the front page:
1. OL needs work for running game to be successful
2. Ruddock had an uncommonly poor day but was hurt by poor route running in at least one if not two of the picks
3. RBs missed some open holes
4. Rome (or in this case our offense) wasn't built in a day
But I also read the following:
1. Team looked better prepared and focused
2. Ruddock is unlikely to repeat that performance
3. OL did well in pass protection
4. We lost last night but the future looks bright
What do you see is untrue and what do you read that is overtly critical and not being said right now in the coaches meeting?
|4 hours 29 min ago||Won't happen||
1. He's a local kid
2. He was extremely over-hyped coming in leading people to believe he was (and still could be) the second coming of Drew Henson
3. He throws the ball real hard
4. He recruited actively for Michigan and was clearly the face of his incoming class
Hell I agree 100% with what you wrote but I have to admidt that after the pick 6 I'm asking myself "why not Morris for a series to see what he's got."
|7 hours 19 min ago||Offensive line impressed?||
Offensive line impressed? Maybe in pass blocking only-run blocking was non-existent most of the night (compounded by our RBs refusal to run into holes when they were there).
|16 hours 3 min ago||Yup. Been saying that all||
Yup. Been saying that all game. EVERY throw to him has turned out badly
|16 hours 5 min ago||Can somebody explain to me||
Can somebody explain to me why our rb's cannot grasp the concept of running to the areas not populated by defenders? Surely we must encourage them to "run to daylight" but player after player just seems content to find the closest pile of defenders and run into it.

I'm behind enemy lines (in Ohio) and I've gone "FULL HARBAUGH" today to honor his first game.
|1 day 52 min ago||You're right!||
I had completely forgotten about the Rose Bowl! Silly me - we DID put up 18 points against USC (prolly just forgot cause we played so damn flat)
2006 is the last year I remember. I had a bad dream about some seasons after that one but thankfully I"ve woken up.

A completely improbable and an almost impossible final score for a football game.
Things ARE returning to normal around here! Welcome back Michigan football.....welcome back.

This is hilarious. I was going to post the exact same thing, got called into a meeting, and then came back and saw this.

You've been here long enough. Did you HONESTLY think news that big, about Tom Motherfucking Brady, wouldnt get posted here nanoseconds after the announcement?
I honestly think the first thread went up within 30 seconds of the initial announcement.

Just a few quick questions before I head on over:
1. Which corner?
2. Which campus?
3. Are you guys Utah fans? That might be a tad awkward if you are (this is a Michigan blog)
4. WTF is a "Shasta"? The only Shasta I'm familiar with is an orange drink.

Wasnt the line "Your honor" (you know - like somebody talking to a judge) a pretty good clue I wasnt serious?
|2 days 56 min ago||I think it's wrong for people||
I think it's wrong for people to post sites where they can gain access to content that others have lawfully and legally paid for. And think it should be stopped immediately and anyone who does such a reprehensible act should be summarily barred from all further contact to and from ths site.

|2 days 3 hours ago||Really?||
I guess we have different standards of "excellence".
Take out the last 7 years and just go from 93-07 and our record is 140-48 or an average of 9-3. And during that span we lost four or more games 7 times.
The last seven years changed that by exactly one game per year.
|2 days 4 hours ago||He's right (unfortunately)||
Unless you're an old fart like me you really have very little memory of a consistanly dominant Michigan team year in and year out. Look at our record from over the past 23 years and we're 188-89 or basically 8-4 on average. That's NOT a near-term historical record that exactly resonates with shock and awe on the part of opposing players and teams.
But I think the end of that bullshit starts tomorrow night.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Yeah I think I agree with you||
Yeah I still think it was pretty dumb on Hoke's part but i do see your point.
You're right that DBs wasnt exactly our #1 issue last year.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Right on Mr Yost!||
This is a wonderful post. Sadly, all the jackwagon, jerkoff, shit-for-brains posters who this is aimed at will either not read it or think it applies to all the other jackwagon, jerkoff, shit-for-brains posters and not them.
Sort of like the board PSAs on not tweeting recruits.
