I'm sure this is untrue, but I'd honestly enjoy watching half the state of Alabama tear itself apart in utter chaos if it were true. Tuscaloosa would burn to the ground within 24 hours.

I know he's a highly heralded recruit and might be the most talented HS football player to come through this school in a long time. But I don't care if he's a 5-star phenom or a walk-on: you'd better damn well earn the right to wear that jersey.

Correction: the greatest upset in Michigan football that Michigan was on the winning side of.....
|6 hours 25 min ago||National title. Not even||
National title. Not even close. It's so hard to even get to the national championship in basketball, much less win one. Winning a national championship single-handedly changes the face of your program, vaults you to elite status, and immediately puts you into contention for recruits you wouldn't otherwise get. Plus, the prestige of winning a damn national title. And imagine how much it would've pissed MSU fans off to know we bested them at their own game.

How is a kid's age a rumor? Either he's one age, or he's not. How are there rumors about this?
|13 hours 11 min ago||I'm pulling for Sparty||
I'm pulling for Sparty because they're the lesser of two evils, and I could live with seeing them go to the Rose Bowl. But I could not live with seeing OSU waltz it's way to a national title off of fluke plays and a cream puff schedule. Knowing Michigan's luck:
|1 day 2 hours ago||Jesus Christ, man. Back away||
Jesus Christ, man. Back away from the ledge. There's a reason that no one outside of the ACC has won at Duke in over a decade.
|1 day 2 hours ago||They'll be alright. Mattison||
They'll be alright. Mattison knows what he needs in order for his defense to compete at a high level.
|1 day 2 hours ago||This game just goes to show||
This game just goes to show how extremely badly we're missing a guy like Trey Burke. I don't necessarily think we would've won this game even if we had him on the court tonight, but damn, the offense looks completely out of sync sometimes now that there isn't a presence like Burke on the floor.
|1 day 2 hours ago||In Michigan's defense, the||
In Michigan's defense, the bball gods haven't wanted any non-conference team to win at Duke since I was in middle school.

Man, every time we get close, Duke comes roaring back with 4-6 straight points.

What have we learned so far this season:
|1 day 3 hours ago||We simply can't buy a basket||
We simply can't buy a basket right now. We don't start sinking some soon, and we will not survive this game much longer.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Getting absolutely hosed by||
Getting absolutely hosed by the refs right now. That's two really bad calls that've gone Duke's way already.

Typical Duke call. So it begins.....
|1 day 5 hours ago||Given Georgia's current||
Given Georgia's current injury bug, I think we could play them pretty well. Good chance to beat them, too, if we can slow down Gurley.

The winged helmet is still the winged helmet. As long as we don't mess with that, then I'm fine. Besides, chrome actually looks pretty good.
|1 day 15 hours ago||At this point, with this||
At this point, with this coaching staff, every road game is a tossup, from OSU to Purdue. Our road performances are so woeful that until proven otherwise, I have zero faith that this staff can win a road game against a good opponent.
|1 day 15 hours ago||If he's smart he'll stay. If||
If he's smart he'll stay. If Saturday proved anything it's that he's still an athlete playing QB. Going 6/15 passing doesn't scream NFL ready.

I'm guessing part of it comes from Gallon's inconsistency. While it's not his fault necessarily, Gallon picked up a huge chunk of his total yards from 3-4 games this season.
|2 days 7 hours ago||I know Sarkasian has worked||
I know Sarkasian has worked wonders at USC before as their OC, but his coaching tenure at Washington never impressed me. They seemed like a perennial average to good team that could never seem to get over the hump. I know they recorded a few big upsets along the way, but he never really molded them into legitimate contenders. They were always a fringe team that never could take the next step.
|2 days 10 hours ago||If Borges can consistently||
If Borges can consistently call games like he did this weekend, I have absolutely no problems with him coming back. When he calls a good game, he calls a GOOD game. And the same goes to Funk, who's O-Line finally generated some consistency against a good rush defense.
I trust Hoke to make this judgment call, but if this doesn't work out next year, its not just Funk and Borges' jobs that are on the line, but I think Hoke's as well. Not that I hope it ever comes remotely close to that.

Good game, yes, but the best games I've seen involve Michigan winning. So, its not really up there....

They must be in the Urban Meyer Circle of Trust.
|3 days 9 hours ago||I never once said yesterday||
I never once said yesterday was a moral victory. I just said that Gardner made OSU's defense look like a bunch of scrubs, so there's no way they all of a sudden "knew what was coming."
|3 days 10 hours ago||If Borges was just more||
If Borges was just more consistent and called more games as effectively as he did yesterday, this could've easily been a 9-11 win team. But one game shouldn't save his job. His inconsistency is maddening.
If we get rid of Borges and hire an OC who knows how to get the most out of his players EVERY WEEK, not just 3-4 weeks out of the year, then I'd predict a 9 win season, potentially 10. Those road games are going to be rough, though, but the talent will absolutely be there, especially if Mr. Peppers comes into the fold.
All hinges on the trenches. Can we finally form a competent O-Line, and can the D-Line generate consistent pressure? If not, we could be staring at another 7-win season.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Woulda, coulda, shoulda. And||
Woulda, coulda, shoulda. And I call BS on OSU knowing what was coming.
If they knew what was coming, I'd sure like them to explain how their defense was gashed to the tune of 600 yards?

I'd be more than happy to see that. At least over the thought of a title game with OSU in it.
|3 days 14 hours ago||If we play like we did||
If we play like we did yesterday, we've got a chance. OSU loses a lot on offense, potentially Braxton as well, and on defense, loses 3 of 4 starters, and possibly Shazier along with them.
