|12 weeks 1 day ago||I think this is a really good||
I think this is a really good thread. I definitely let this loss down me a little longer than it should on a nice Saturday with family. It's crazy how lucky those of us are that a loss by a bunch of college kids we didn't even play in is our biggest heart ache for time being. I feel horrible for the seniors who put in so much time and just barely missed out on their chance to beat OSU, but they're off to bigger and better things now.
And remember, if some rival fan goes out of their way to rub it in that a bunch of college athletes they didn't participate in beat a bunch of college athletes we didn't participate in, there's probably a reason why that's the thing that brings joy to their life, and I feel bad for someone that miserable. Hope everyone has a great holiday season and New Year.

I think this is nonsense. For one, we definitely had a less than 50% chance of pulling off the two point conversion, and the D pretty much did stop them except for a garbage run on 3rd down by samuel and an iffy spot.
Secondly, the refereeing was truly bad and one sided. In my opinion (and most people's) it affected the game, in yours it did not. But regardless of the outcome, I'm tired of watching bad calls in big games and wanted to discuss how it could be improved in the future.

Not even kidding, that ref should be reviewed to be fired for a call like that. You can't let the crowd influence you like that.

Oh and the Swamp sucks. It's blazing hot/muggy and the atmosphere really isn't that great.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||The thing about Florida that||
The thing about Florida that I think a lot of people not from around there don't realize is that they think they're Michigan. They think they're a college football blue blood and a public ivy. I actually knew students there who told me that the university was equal to Michigan and to be considered by the Ivy League when they tried to expand south (LOL). So I don't know why you'd rather go there if both teams are down. Sure it's warmer, but it's in a swamp.

did the people here saying the refs gave it to miami even watch the game? or are you just truly dedicated heat-haters?

i can't believe i have to watch these cheese dicks celebrate. you aren't going to beat the #1 overall seed 8 v. 5, but they just looked like they wanted it more too. the wolverines are still champions in my heart. thanks for a great run, boys

|3 years 50 weeks ago||i think there is a problem||
i think there is a problem here and that is that we are both making different points. i'm not trying to compare anyone here to boise state, i am just saying that there are examples of teams with high classes doing poorly and poor classes doing better. while there is certainly a correlation between them, they do not guarantee anything. in your OP, you said that in the next 10+ years, UM/OSU will dominate the conference. i think this depends on what you define as domination. if you asked me, i'd guess that these two teams will win a combined 6+ of the next 10 conference championships, and more is a definite possibility... however, you did not say that in your OP that things are looking bright for UM..you said that they will DOMINATE with no doubt. what i am saying is that, while UM's future appears it will be very bright, it is not a guarantee. therefore, this is a commonly shared opinion i see around here that truly irks me and surely others. i mean, all you need is one injury, coaching departure, sanction, or anything else for a whole season or span of seasons to quickly turn to shit.
TL;DR: ohio state and michigan likely to be two best teams in conference for forseeable future, michigan hasn't been dominant for a long time so let's hold off on ensuring their dominance already.
|3 years 50 weeks ago||it is possible to have a very||
it is possible to have a very good team with highly ranked players (see: alabama). it's possible to have a very good team with not highly ranked players (see: boise state early 21st century). it's possible to have a bad team with highly ranked players - look at fsu and usc this year, people were predicting them to the BCS Championship game and they were mediocre. basically what i don' think you get what i'm saying is that it is preferable to have highly ranked players, but that doesn't GUARANTEE success. that's why it's, in my opinion, silly to declare michigan undenied dominators of the big ten in the next ten years when it's been that long since michigan has won the big ten. i want these players to succeed as much as you, but they aren't assured to be great because they have more stars. i'm also not sure you can say hoke and staff are just as good as ohio state's staff either...

|3 years 50 weeks ago||Oh it's absolutely very||
Oh it's absolutely very promising and much better than the alternative. However, nothing is guaranteed from any of this. Last year we went 8-5 and we haven't one a big ten championship since 2004 iirc.. While we're certainly looking very promising, football is played on the field. That's why it annoys me when people just declare us world beaters because of recruiting classes. They need to develop first.

i'm sorry but that's textbook homer. let's let michigan win a big ten championship before we declare them dominators of the big ten?
