Are you telling me after all this talk about spring/summer workouts the OL hasn't improved all? If this line can't block and the coach can't seem to solve the problem, after all this time, then I guess this will be another messed up season. WTH is going on with OL?
I keep hearing, THIS IS MICHIGAN! Well the MIchigan I grew up with always had a OL, and a very good rep across the nation for that very reason. This cannot be the case, just can't.
Still holding out for the best but if that team goes to South Bend and folds, there needs to be a change. We won't even talk about Oct 24 and Nov 29th.

I've never been invited and I love BBQ! With some mac and chees, patoto salad, and some greens. MMMMM, MMMM, GOOD! :-)

Congratulations to this Michigan squad! I loved it, now take care of business at MSU and Ohio. Great game by everyone.
|33 weeks 4 days ago||Delusional Lion fans!||
I've been a Lions fan forever and I know it doesn't matter what coach they have, these players (Lion's players) need to be accountable for their play, and actions. They don't want to win, nor play together. They are all about stats, and getting their face on television.
I say fine them, dock pay, or whatever you want to call it for dumb play, penalties, and lack of discipline. THEY HAVE NO PROFESSIONAL WORK ETHIC, and you as fans continue to pay for b.s. and fake as promises. They get your gauranteed money (seat licenses, and season tickets), and you're left with why can't they do this, or if they would do that.
Firing the coach does nothing! The NFL will shuffle is A$$ off to another team, and Detroit will continue to play like crap for the next coach.
AND YES I WILL TUNE IN NEXT SEASON!
Restore the Roar!
|33 weeks 4 days ago||Not exactly a month to prepare but close enough.||
If they can't get the team ready for this lower tier bowl. Next season will be more of the same. Losing to MSU, OSU and Nebraska.
We as fans don't have much invested in the day to day preparation, but watching the final result is devistating. 7-6 record reminds me of teams like San Diego St, Ball State, but not Michigan.
You may believe this record is just a phenomenom, but it's getting worse and worse in the last three years. Michigan's football team embarrassed themselves on Dec 28,2013. NO PRIDE AT ALL!
|40 weeks 3 days ago||Tried to listen to it but turned it off.||
This is the worse offensive output I"ve ever seen. The coach doesn't seem to have any answers, so to me, the team wouldn't either. The season is a wash, they can't win at home now, and haven't on the road. So what do you think?
|42 weeks 1 day ago||Coaching with passion on the road!||
All I will say is Coach Hoke and Borges better not go into this game playing percentages. Just coach the game with attitude. Trying to run Fitz will be a major mistake and doing a few trick plays in the first quarter will be a waste. You win the game in the second half.
This game will show how tough Michigan really is, and whether or not Michigan has MAC coaches or B1G coaches.
|44 weeks 6 hours ago||Michigan's defense is suspect at times.||
But they play hard and will have errors. There isn't a perfect defense in this world. Some will make a claim for MSU but I think they play more physical than Michigan. Michigan has a great coach in Mattison. So if he makes a mistake, so be it. But Michigan is always in a position to win, and the players have to push through adverstity.
The issue I have is the middle of the field. Would someone please close that leak! It's wide open all the time, and if I see it, every offensive coordinator sees it!
|44 weeks 3 days ago||Brady Hoke regime I like most of the coaches, reserved on Al||
My issue isn't about the loss. It's about how Michigan loss, and the coaching decisions seem to be at it's weakess during road games. For example, a few years ago at MSU, Denard was getting pummelled, they kept running him. At Nebraska, Denard gets hurt, they bring in the wrong qb (everyone knows this) and states to change Devin back to qb would have been to much of an adjust, REALLY!? Then turnaround in one week and he's the starting QB for the rest of the season. Last weekend, and at UConn kept trying to use a runningback that is clearly saving himself for a chance to get in the NFL. By the way he averaged almost less than one yard a carry against Penn State
Playing it safe on the road you must have a running game. If you don't, the only option is to attack. These coaches don't attack, they play it safe, ooops, play the percentages.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||Big Al and his pro style offense.||
No Al Borges is. When watching the game, check how deep Fitz is behind the QB, if he's way back, he's running. If he's closer to the QB it's play action. It's predictable!
|44 weeks 3 days ago||Michigan vs Penn State final- simply out coached!||
Everyone can point at one or two things about each player, youth, and lack of effectiveness. But the biggest thing that I don't understand is this. Your QB is getting more yards than your runningback (the only one they keep using), how is that? How is that runningback still playing, and no one else gets a chance?
These coaches claim they have all this talent but somehow they never make it in games. In (4)OTs you used a runningback that was ineffective for (4) qrts, to waste crucial downs in OTs, by running up the middle (hadn't been successful for four quarters) but kept setting up for a fg everytime. Never threw the ball to the endzone once. But the coach on the otherside did whatever it took, including going for it on fourth down (and was losing at this point), to win a game. Why didn't you do whatever it took to win this game?
Does Michigan have MAC coaches or BIG TEN coaches?
|45 weeks 5 days ago||Devin Gardner||
I think Devin did a great job yesterday, and even with his past mistakes he's still a great QB. Happy to have him wearing the Winged Helmet. He's just having a familiar year, but just later than most qbs, the sophmore slump (I know he's not a sophmore). Most second year qbs seem to go through this, and if you know the game, opposing teams attack new qbs. People forget, this is Devin's first full year at qb, mistakes are going to be an issue. Some mistakes bigger than others, it's up to good coaching to help prevent bad habits.
|45 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan's win over Minny.||
First I hope the Minnesota's headcoach, Jerry Kill is doing well this morning.
As for the game there was a lot, we as fans were trying to see, and may have missed. But from MY view I think the coaches did exactly what they had to do. They took the game out Devin's hand, and tried to establish a run game (which from my view, needs more work).
Devin looked defeated at times and he wasn't doing a bad job. His confidence has been shaken, and establishing a run game is crucial.
Fitz, is not a threat, hate to say it, and I really mean that. Green, nice to see some of his potential but they won't let him have game experience. My question, where are the rest of the backs? The coaches always claim to have talent but never use it. But I knew they would be in a bind when Al said he wanted one runningback to carry the load, one back, REALLY?
Here's one thing that bothers me, Devin Funchess. The kid wanted to play WR, they wanted him at TE. Funchess claims to have embrace the TE position. Coaches, hey Funchess! How about playing some WR? Funchess, ok! Coaches....damn he's good! I understand they had a need at TE but the kid is good, and a threat! So as fans we will have to see what they will do with him at the next game.
Granted I'm being sarcastic but it's obvious this team is lacking something, and I hope the coaches and players get it figured out this week. Because Michigan losses to NW, OHIO, and MSU if they don't. Two out of the three looks like they have more talent and are willing to use it. The third, well, it's East Lansing, and Michigan doesn't look like a tough team (soft).
|1 year 39 weeks ago||On probation, so prepare to drop on Nov. 24th.||
So the probation department decided to take urine samples on Nov 24, and all their clients (Tressel, the osu team, and even Urban who escaped Florida's probation) have to meet at the horseshoe.
It's all a part of their terms of probation.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Maryland coming to the B1G, and you ask what's next?||
I will tell you what's next! I have another reason to visit D.C. in the fall and party my ass off! That's what's next.
Welcome to the B1G, losers!
|1 year 39 weeks ago||BEAT OHIO WEEK!||
This is a major game! Michigan loss to Alabama, in every aspect of the game. The Notre Dame game, well let's just say, bad night but still could have won. Notre Dame didn't beat Michigan, they ended up winning.
Now here they are, going against an undefeated team ( who's division is so weak they were predicting Purdue/ Indiana to win it). Michigan has a chance to redeem themselves for losses to Bama and ND.
A win in Co-rumbus (spelling intended) will make this season a success, in everyway!
So GO BLUE beat Ohio, and ESPN's favorite coach (love child).
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Buying and Selling.....||
I will agree osuck-u will have a team that will be hard to beat. That's only because Urban had a whole year to scout every team in the Big Ten (working Big Ten games for ESPN). As for Notre Dame, yeah Michigan has a lot to worry about. This game is a trap game and Michigan seems to have the injury bug.
MSU is going to be a victory for Michigan, no questions asked. As for the rest, who cares, they're not on Michigan's schedule.
The biggest factor that outweighs all that.....Michigan has great coaches, period.

I don't know the facts of the case but hopefully it's something that will never happen again. As for Urben, fools gold. Remember, it's all about him!
|3 years 32 weeks ago||Coaching concerns...||
This has become very uncomfortable! What is going on? NO ONE seems to want this job!
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Personally I don't get it!||
I think they are to small but according to dewitt262's stats, it doesn't seem to be the case. So what is the issue? Everyone knows about the youth but where does the fundementals start showing. These guys didn't just start playing football April 2010.
GET A REAL DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR AND LET HIM COACH THE DEFENSE!
|3 years 39 weeks ago||This loss isn't solely attributed to Michigan's defense.||
The defense didn't stop Wiscy but they did get in there way. In the first half the defense put the offense in position to have the lead, and build on a lead. The offense did nothing! The defense clearly played hard, but became worn down. The offense seems to score only when the opponent scores.
My questions (2), why did they wait until the second half to turn it on? Why does RR continue to try fgs when he obviously doesn't have anyone who can kick one?
|3 years 39 weeks ago||It' s great to be in the new millineum!||
Now let's have a game!
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Game at Wrigley, one endzone.||
Now this has become truly odd! This venu was obviously a bad idea, and it makes the Big Ten look awful for allowing it.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Braylon is Braylon!||
If he is mentoring a young mind, then he must give that mind the best advice. Ultimately the decision still comes down to that young mind. Apparently he was on the fence with Michigan and decided to go elsewhere. He made the decision, not Braylon.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||The defense needs more players.||
The offense does put the defense on the field at a faster rate. The offense sputters when it shouldn't be, and three and outs puts those guys right back out there. But the defense needs to produce more three and outs themselves. Holding teams to 3rd and 11, then giving up 25 yards doesn't make for a good defense ever!
There should be a real infuses on DE and LB in this years recruiting class, as well as a new defensive coordinator. Someone who will bring real enthusiasm to a low octane defense. Someone who will make this defense a punishing defense.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Michigan football, home game, pride...||
All this is on the line. Their season will be much improved when they win this game. Yes I said it, Michigan will win this game!
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Lights at the Big House.||
I could never understand why they would spend 226 million dollars and not put up lights? I knew at the time they didn't want night games, but 3:30 games tend to bleed into the night. Oh well, I'm happy to see someone with a brain has decided to correct it, and I'm looking forward to the first night game being played in the Big House! GO BLUE!
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Don't really care about the stats, this year.||
They don't have a losing record for the season, and I pray they can finish on a winning note. Logic says no, but why not believe in the unforseen.So praying for the best!
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Championship football players?||
Are there anymore? Seems to me all the star players have their own agendas, and it's promoted before they get out of high school. When I think of champion players, David Molk, Mike Martin, and Denard come to mind. Humble but dedicated to the game.
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Seen it!||
Kind of embarrassing, but exciting at the same time.
