|1 day 16 hours ago||Agreed||
Harbaugh's not one to forget. Lord knows, he might not forgive either. We'll just have to find out next year. For now, this is just another game that he needs to prepare for and win.
|1 day 18 hours ago||When he throws a right hook||
To a player on the sideline, then it's time to let him go.
|2 days 17 hours ago||At the end of the day||
The CFP chose the teams that had the four best records in P5 conferences (sorry WMU). This is regardless of which teams were played and beaten. Although I understand that logic, it brings up the point that, if this is how the Final Four will be chosen, why even have mid-season rankings that change, or even a committee to begin with? At the end of the day, the record is all that matters, so going foward, they should just choose the four best records at the end of the year and rank them accordingly. If there are matching records, then you can seed by strength of conference.
|3 days 19 hours ago||I wonder why people think Warde is staying silent||
Who says he's not? Since he's been AD, how much have we really heard from him? Shouldn't a good AD work behind the scenes instead of being front and center all the time, like a certain former AD? I'm sure Warde is doing the best he can to help Michigan, but he doesn't need to hold a rally or parade to do so.
|3 days 20 hours ago||So his "master plan"||
To get two teams in the playoff failed? Serves him right. The blog's current mantra couldn't be more apropos
|4 days 7 hours ago||I didn't realize that hurting your ankle||
Stopped you from remembering how to throw a football.
|6 days 8 hours ago||So on that last shot by Irvin||
There's two explanations.
Either, Beilein called that play, an iso for Irvin where he dribbles around and burns the shot clock. If that's the case, shame on JB. Or..
Irvin went into business for himself for the umpteenth time in his career, which, if so, shame on him.
It's been stated ad nauseum during the last few years, Irvin and Walton are incapable of displaying leadership on this team, and their actions back up that claim. Neither is having an "aneurysm" any time soon, and the team will suffer under their guidance.

Said the same thing immediately after Galloway's statement.
|1 week 12 hours ago||I know||
Did you see all those satellite camps we went to last year? I can't believe we keep getting away with it. /s
|1 week 20 hours ago||i didn't know ODU||
had a football team. Let alone a D1 team.
|1 week 1 day ago||This could be the most complaining||
In the span of one month ever in recent history. First, protests break out over what happened three Tuesdays ago, and many people still aren't over that. And now this. Lord knows how long this is going to last.
John Oliver was right. This is the worst year ever. It needs to die and burn in Hell.
|1 week 1 day ago||How about||
We get a group of people and chain ourselves to the outside of the Big Ten office building. Seems that's what any rational person in this situation would do.
|1 week 1 day ago||How many Fr and So are projected for Michigan next year||
OSU had 10 freshman or sophomores in its starting 22 this year and they were a blocked FG away from going 12-0. They didn't look like they had trouble rebuilding.
|1 week 2 days ago||One other issue||
Is that OSU is presumingly going to make the playoff having to play one less game. So, if the committee is hell bent on putting OSU in, they should take into account that Washington, Alabama and Clemson had to play one more game to earn the right to get in. If all three win, the only fair thing to do would be to put OSU fourth and force them to play Alabama in the semi.
|1 week 2 days ago||So if you look at it from a head to head standpoint||
Your Big 10 hierarchy would be:
OSU 2-1 (Beat Mich and Wisc, lost to PSU)
Michigan 2-1 (Beat Wisc and PSU, lost to OSU)
PSU 1-1 (beat OSU, lost to Mich)
Wisconsin 0-2 (lost to OSU and Mich)
So technically, the third and fourth best teams in the conference are going to play for the title. By this logic, Michigan should be ranked ahead of Wisc and PSU at this time. Even if PSU beats Wisc, it ends up 2-1, but have lost to Michigan in the head-to-head matchup. Wisconsin would only have one quality win against the other three, if it wins the title game.
|1 week 2 days ago||You don't need to know anyone||
If you want, just directly email that info to the national media college football writers like Forde and the like. If they feel it newsworthy, they'll jump on it. Email it to Mike Greenberg or Graham Watson at Yahoo, see what they have to say.
I'm not trying to make the seemingly sour grapes situation worse, I'm just suggesting this so things could change in the future. I want integrity just like any other fan.
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||The reason for that||
Is that Michigan has a direct path to the playoff if we beat OSU. That's boring. OSU's path is more complicated and can be discussed.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||That man is focused||
He doesn't have time to suffer fool reporters. He's got a game to win.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Bennie Oosterbaan is eighth||
|3 weeks 3 days ago||They have a stat that||
Michigan hasn't yet beaten a conference opponent on the road that has a win in the conference.'
That's not our fault.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I can't wait for Onwenu||
To be the QB in our new Kaiju option package. Speight would be the RB.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||What we really should be talking about||
Is how can the CFP leave an undefeated WMU team out of the playoffs if UW or Clemson lose. /s
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Harbaugh's such a good coach||
He even taught the beat writers to ask insightful questions for a change.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Figuring that Navy was going to beat ND||
And they did.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||We have now scored||
On 10 consecutive first-half drives.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||MD's offense is decent in space||
But in close quarters, it's not going to be effective. Missing FGs doesn't hurt either.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||It's fun when||
We can toy with teams like this.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Louisville probably knows||
They have to start picking up style points to be considered for the CFP. Good for them the rest of their schedule is mediocre.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Georgia Southern||
Up 14-3 on Ole Miss.
|5 weeks 12 hours ago||Clemson being ranked ahead doesn't matter||
Especially at this point. Even if we end up 3 in the final rankings, all that means is that we'll be the road team in a neutral site game. It doesn't mean we have to travel to Clemson. So there's nothing to concern ourselves about at this time.
Have they determined which semifinal is going to have which game? I think I'd rather play at the Fiesta Bowl.
