That's awesome. Thanks for posting it.

Who's got it better than us? Can you believe we're already - 1/2 way into Harbaugh season one - at the point of being disappointed like that? As opposed to being disappointed that our offense looks like a soft mush of oatmeal?
|1 week 3 days ago||Agree, but still||
the haters should be held accountable, just like they call for on the part of the players.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Uh, no||
Why would you think that?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Thank goodness none of us know where the others live||
We might do a lot worse than handle jacking
|2 weeks 2 days ago||None of us are going to be happy with a loss,||
especially to a rival. But looking at season 1 overall, if we go 8-4, yeah, I'll be happy, because it'll be clear that we're heading in the right direction. And after what we've been through? Yeah, I'll be happy.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I'd be happy with 8-4 this year. Sorry to annoy you.||
Our offense was LAST in the conference last year. We play at least 5 quality teams in Utah, BYU, Northwestern, MSU, OSU. If you expect us to be awesome in year 1 of Harbaugh you're just not realistic. I expect 7-5, will be impressed with 8-4, would be thrilled with anything better than that. Realism, it's a valuable thing.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||If you too were an original from the haloscan days||
you would know that handle-jacking was a thing that happened for a brief time where posters were able to use other poster's login names. There was chaos for a little bit when you didn't know if a post was from the real poster or a poser poster. So settle down and don't criticize your elders.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Some people on this thread are so effing entitled, jeebus.||
Yes, Rudock needs to improve. But as Harbaugh said, his job is to win games. We're 2-1 and could be 3-0 if Rudock's receivers run the right routes and don't slow down their routes. And that was against a good Utah team, first game of new regime, on the road, under the lights. Rudock's been in Ann Arbor for less than 6 months, working with the team for less than that, in a new offense for everybody. Our offense is competent for the first time in years, and relatively minor improvements will make it pretty solid. Numerous times Rudock has worked his way through his progressions and made good decisions. Yes, he's also thrown too many INTs. He's not perfect yet but fer gods sake, settle down and step off the high horse of perfection. Yes, Rudock needs to improve, but let's give the kid a little more time and support and see what happens.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||His comment is not screaming for mediocrity, that's dumb||
He's just being realistic. Our offense at least finally looks competent, and this is 3 games in to the season. You think he doesn't want us to be great? C'mon man.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Your post is garbage. Practice your grammar.||
You "got" no right to criticize Rudock if this is how you uphold your end of the bargain as a poster on this site.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||C'mon dude, this isn't 7th grade||
Show a little more class for the blog.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Or come face to face with day Lions||
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Man, that just kicks ass||
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Excellent read||
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I'm extremely impressed with Schlissel so far, but||
To say he's the best president ever is going too far. Maybe he will be, but he's too new for that honor yet.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Finally, a connection to Rosebush||
I pass the signs to Rosebush on both 10 and 127 often on trips to/from up north. Don't know why, but it always catches my eye and leads to "hmmm, Rosebush, I wonder what that place is like." Good to see an MGoBlogger from Rosebush. Now everytime I pass it I'll think, "hey, LongLiveBo is from Rosebush."
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed||
|13 weeks 2 hours ago||This camp is fantastic||
What a great thing to do, for all involved. Coach and his team making M proud.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Oh yeah, the Dino place in Ossineke is a must if||
OP is looking for the biggest ball of yarn-type stuff. I visited that place numerous times as a kid and it turned into one of those childhood memories that just stuck.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||I agree with everything in your tl;dr post, and here too||
I'm really disappointed to see how many people don't give a damn about ethics and integrity and only care about winning football games. This site has attracted a much wider membership over the years, and I suspect a lot of people who don't have any real affiliation with UM outside of being sports fans. That's fine in and of itself, but not when they want to promote an unravelling of UM's way of doing things. The institution is much larger than just its athletics, and the core values of the University need to be the foundation of all its activities. To hell with those who would sell UM's soul just to win games. They don't have a real clue what Michigan is about.
|15 weeks 1 hour ago||Wrong.||
And it's not about moral "superiority" either. It's just about us doing the right thing, doesn't matter what others do. If you don't think Michigan is about a certain set of values then you didn't get the memo.
|15 weeks 2 hours ago||WTF is wrong with you people. This isn't about what the NCAA||
Does when you break a rule. This is about doing the right thing. Jesus H, This Is Michigan. Bo would run you out of town.
|15 weeks 2 hours ago||That's ridiculous. So you'd be ok with us doing it like Saban?||
What BS. Michigan is more than football, but you'd be fine with us selling our souls just to win football games?
|15 weeks 2 hours ago||You're "entitled" to the job when they give it to you||
This is on the coaches to manage their offers. They can tell a kid when he's allowed to actually commit or when he needs to wait. If there is a mutual agreement on a commitment then it should be treated at least like a gentleman's agreement, and UM later backing out of the deal is not "the Michigan way."
|15 weeks 16 hours ago||I'd say it *could* be morally black and white, but we don't||
know if that's the case because we don't have both sides of the story. And we'll probably never know for sure in the future either, so this is tough. But if there's a mutual commitment, and we then back out of it, that would be bad. Yes, Harbaugh hasn't done it at MIchigan yet, and hopefully he won't. But if that became a thing here, it would be a bad thing in my view. Integrity > winning at any cost.
|15 weeks 18 hours ago||Is a greyshirt "doing the right thing"?||
I'm not here to argue this is the worst thing in the history of MIchigan football, but there is certainly info in here that should be concerning to Michigan fans.
|15 weeks 18 hours ago||Well this is concerning.||
First, this is an excellent, objective piece, Ace. A credit to this site.
As many have said here, there's info from "the other side of the story" that we just can't get access to, so I'm reserving judgement. But nonetheless, this is concerning. I don't want to be Pollyanish about it, but Michigan IS about integrity, and I'll still put that over "win at any cost." If we make a commitment to a kid, it should be honored.
