|1 week 3 days ago||Well||
A powerful running back in a spread offense is still a spread offense. Hyde might not have gotten 8 yards per carry if M could have committed 8 guys to the box. Having Miller back there and receivers in space made that impossible. It wasn't just Manball.

Fans are looking at this team and seeing regression. I believe that they would accept the youth/transition arguement and be patient if this team was stuggling, but getting better. It is not. Both last year and this, the team has gotten worse over the course of the season.
Do we need to wait for a senior 5-star QB? Devin Gardner. NFL talent on the O-line? Lewan and Schofield. Playmakers at WR? Gallon, Dileo, Funchess. A 1000-yard RB? Toussaint.
I'm sorry, but there is plenty of talent here and this staff is squandering it. How can we trust that future talent will fare any better once we've waited for year 5?

Maybe if we win the turnover battle like 3-1 and get a score on defense and they miss an easy field goal... Wait, that happened today.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Jesus, I hate these coaches||
Jesus, I hate these coaches even more now. Gardner is like an abused spouse blaming himself.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Exactly! Gardner was a five||
Exactly! Gardner was a five star, elite 11 recruit with obvious physical talent and just look what this staff has turned him into.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||"Guys like Saban, Miles,||
"Guys like Saban, Miles, Harbaugh, Meyer etc. are not coming to Michigan."
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I would like to start a||
I would like to start a campaign against the notion that any coaching change would necessarily be painful. Just hire a coach that is ready for a program like Michigan, give him the support he needs, and he will know what to do. Example: Ohio State.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I think a lot of us were||
I think a lot of us were weary of the Hoke hire, but getting Mattison and then the 2011 season just disarmed our correct reservations. An elite CEO-style coach is already planning his next OC and I doubt Hoke is doing that.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I respectfully disagree.||
I respectfully disagree. Players drop passes and make little mistakes in every game. The issue is that our scheme only seems to generate handful of good plays per game and when someone drops the ball it a just gets magnified. These mistakes kill drives and turn TDs into FGs. They don't explain 158 total yards of offense.

Every week, every year.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Maybe we should have someone||
Maybe we should have someone coaching our QBs... I wonder if any other schools do that?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan is looking up at MSU||
Michigan is looking up at MSU and Iowa right now. Just a few fortunate comebacks away from being 5-6 right now.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||That first line was posted||
That first line was posted before the comeback Saturday night when they assumed we would lose and fire Borges immediately.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I second that.||
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Good morning, Coach,||
I am incapable of coaching a college football offense. May I also have $250,000?
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Yes, at this point they all||
Yes, at this point they all need to be double-fired!
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Borges' performance might be||
Borges' performance might be worse than Greg Robinson's. Robinson seemed to have very little control over his scheme and position coaches while Borges is in this family and is his own position coach. Not to mention the relatively better talent Borges has had to work with. Robinson was a just-okay coach in an awful position. Borges is in a pretty awesome position, and yet...
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah man, that's just what||
Yeah man, that's just what the Ouiji Board told them to do this week.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Can we go through a "terrible||
Can we go through a "terrible transition" like Ohio State did? Please?
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Remember when Hoke was trying||
Remember when Hoke was trying to call a TO on the goal line vs Notre Dame and everyone thought it was so cute because we scored despite the coaching. Good thing the coaches have been in control since then.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||They know||
Come on, man. You see the frustration in these players. Those kids know how foolish and futile this offensive "scheme" is (it seems that there are only one-or-two people in existence who don't). They know where the boos are pointed.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Honestly, there may have been||
Honestly, there may have been more hope for the team back in '08.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Amen, brother! I for one am||
Amen, brother! I for one am sick of being assumed to worship at the church of Bo. He was a great man, a great long time ago.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Low point||
I agree that it is a low point in our Michigan fandom, but the boos were entirely warranted and I t was clear to everyone that they were aimed at the play-calling. The coaches are defying the Michigan tradition of actually trying to win football games. It felt like the fans were trying to defend the players from these terrible coaches. It's a shame, but that is just how pig-headed this staff has been.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||And last year. I demand a||
And last year. I demand a senior Denard redo!
|8 weeks 4 days ago||B-. I am positive that Borges||
B-. I am positive that Borges will limit this team for as long as he is here. Game management and overall player development bodes very unwell for Hoke too. I am being kept from voting a C only by optimism and Hoke's stellar recruiting.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||You have to love the game,||
You have to love the game, the players, the atmosphere, the fact that college football is this precious and natural spectacle still relatively uninfluenced by corporate milquetoasts. I love Michigan and even in the worst defeats take comfort in the fact that I never wish I was anything other than a Michigan Wolverine.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||They don't have to be famous||
They don't have to be famous they just have to flexible and get the more out of their players. Borges does not adjust to anything and has turned our QB talent into quivering piles of goo for three straight years. And they payoff for our patience while we wait for the players to be just what he wants and good enough to "execute" is an archaic offense that was outdated a decade ago. He is an anchor around this team's neck and examples of more dynamic and forward-thinking OCs are everywhere .
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Seriously||
Defense holds Minnesota to a FG and 180 total yards while Devin gives them a 7-point freebie.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Honorable mention for when||
Honorable mention for when Musburger said "Butt was the target."
It made me smile through the tension of our narrow lead.
