As poorly as the season was going, I still had hope that they would get it together by tournament time, but this has officially put that thought to rest.

But he was so excited to be starting his "dream job" at USC earlier this year...

"...but I guess it's nice to see an NFL guy get on board with the whole Michigan Has A Real Shot thing."
Well, to be fair, Schefter is a U of M guy as well. In fact, he started out as a sportswriter for the 'Daily' in college.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Harbaugh was in the||
Harbaugh was in the conversation in 08. And they went after him hard after the RR debacle, when he turned them down flat. Now, the university is going after him yet again. It makes UM look desperate, and the whole thing is getting embarrassing. It reminds me of the nerd asking the popular girl to the prom over and over again.
And if they hire that putz Schiano, I will throw up.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Nice collage||
That's quite an assemblage of middle-aged white guys. I wonder if any of them will ever actually coach at UM?
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Defense||
Well, they did make great halftime adjustments. They held KSU to only 1 real drive which ended in a FG. Their TD came after Morris' INT was returned inside the 10 yard line.
While the first half was a debacle, you can attribute some of that to the D being rusty after a month off and KSU having an excellent game plan. After Mattison saw what they were doing, he changed up the schemes and the D played brilliantly in the second half. He deserves credit for that.

I'll be there bright and early this Saturday just like I always am. And if the Big House is filled with red (as it always was throughout the Bump years), then shame on the fans. So it's been a ho-hum season, so what? Get over it, you crybabies.
Hoke's right about fickle fans. I remember when people were up in arms that an interim coach got the full time job (Carr). Then he won UM's first national title in 50 years, and everyone loved him. Then for the last 7 years or so of his career UM fans were calling for his head.
I think we all owe Hoke a chance here. After the attrocious RR years, Hoke actually beat State and OSU. He's only got one loss at the Big House, and this is only season 3. Give him some time. The season may have been a disappointment, but if these rumors about season ticket holders selling out on stubhub are true, that is just bush league. Win or lose, you go out and support the team.

It was the best special teams play I have ever seen. Just amazing. Dileo actually slid into the perfect position 7 yards behind the center. Gallon made a perfect toss to the ref who turned and tossed it to the other ref who ran and placed the ball. Everything just worked to perfection. Oh yeah, and Gibbons made a great clutch kick.

I cringe every time Gardner throws it. How many dropped INTs does NW have now?

OK, well had they gotten the 3, they still would've had 5 minutes and 2 timeouts to get a stop and score again. It was a horrible call.

They need to take the 3 to tie. Why are they going?!

Ha, Brady is still in his polo shirt while Pat Fitzgerald just put on a heavier coat. What a pussy.

This is incredible! D and special teams are really manning up today. If the offense can get a dang score, UM should get a victory.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||The osu game is without||
The osu game is without question the most important game every season. B10 championships and bowl games come secondary to The Game regardless of what Coach Hoke says. I remember an empty feeling in 04 after losing it even though we still won the B10 title. Will winning The Game this year "save the season?" Theoretically no, but it would be immortal and go down in Michigan lore for the ages.

Unfortunately it's not going to get any easier after this with Neb, @Iowa, @Northwestern and Ohio. *sigh* Well, there's always beer. Thank you, Founders.

Thank God for the bye week. Despite how bad they've looked, they're 4-0 going into the B10. I just hope they get things figured out during the bye. Hail to the Victors.

All right, we need a defensive stand and some solid halftime adjustments. It'll be all right in the 2nd half. Our talent will prevail over the course of the entire game. It's ugly now, but it can only get better.
