To all the haters who want to paint Michigan as overrated based on their "lackluster" OOC schedule; Colorado and FCU, better than expected. Notre Dame, worse than expected.

That guy, almost certainly inadvertently, summed up the Penn State fanbase's problem in one succinct statement.

While there are plenty of fanbases out there that are reprehensible in their own unique ways, Penn State's occupies a strata all their own and it's really just disturbing and infuriating all at the same time.
I hope we drop 70 on them.
|3 days 19 hours ago||What?||
That's not a crazy take. Current CBS rankings for 26-40
26 - Western Michigan
27 - Iowa (welp)
28 - Notre Dame
29 - LSU
30 - Ole Miss
31 - TCU
32 - Toledo
33 - Oklahoma
34 - Air Force
35 - Oregon
36 - Oklahoma State
37 - North Carolina
38 - Central Michigan
39 - Arizona State
40 - Memphis
NDSU has already taken down one of the teams on this list (LOLHawkeyes) and it's easy to see that any of the MAC teams on this list would be vulnerable to an upset at the Bison's hands.
|1 week 6 days ago||Yeah...||
This was the epiphany I had on Saturday watching the game, because initially, I had the impression that Harbaugh's offense didn't look all that much different than Carr/DeBord's offense, but results are definitely not the same.
Then it hit me, if this was a Lloyd-coached team, we'd spend 2 quarters running into the teeth of that 9 man front trying to wear them down. It would either work or it wouldn't. If it didn't we'd start to take shots downfield through the air around mid-way through the 3rd and wind up with an underwhelming 17 to 24 point victory.
With Harbaugh and Drevno, there's no hesitation. Stack the line against the run? Send FCU home "Air Speight"....
This is better.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Hate them?||
There's no reason to hate Appalachian State. Hate Bill Martin for scheduling the game in the first place. Hate the coaching staff for not having the team prepared to face a quality spread team. Hate the team for taking their opponent lightly.
Hating an opponent for having the audacity to come into our stadium and beating us is not focusing on the right thing. Losing to ASU is an embarrassment that isn't likely to go away any time soon, but the only ones to blame for that is Michigan.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||How?||
Because the average consumer of sports media is ill-informed, easily manipulated, and thinks the output of venues like ESPN and SI represent the pinnacle of sports journalism. Taking the contrarian position on everything to bait the general public is a pretty tried and proven formula for garnering ratings / pageclicks / comments. See Sharpe, Drew and Valenti, Mike.

Greenville, South Carolina.
Full confession; I looked it up.

I replaced the NFL with the Premier League. Get my Sunday sports fix before lunch, and the rest of my day is free for whatever. Couldn't be happier.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed||
No hockey representation? No Marty Turco? Brendan Morrison? Jack Johnson? Dylan Larkin? and yes, Red Berenson?
How about great Michigan baseball players like Barry Larkin, Chris Sabo, and Jim Abbott?

Dave Brandon and Brady Hoke - Bad for Michigan
Jim Harbaugh - Good for Michigan
You can thank me later.

Setup or not, when someone throws you a softball down the middle of the plate, you swing away at that shit.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||With all due respect, a 17||
With all due respect, a 17 point lead going into the 4th Quarter is hardly a done deal worthy of putting in your back-ups, regardless of how lopsided things may have gone up to this point (see: Braylonfest).
That said, I would hope that against MSU, Harbaugh would manage the game correctly, which in the context of your question means if the victory is sewn up, he protects his most crucial personnel from potential injury while giving his younger players valuable live game experience. There doesn't even have to be some underlying message being sent with regards to this, it's just the correct move. Running up the score against a team in the middle of your season,regardless who it is, is playing to your ego; it's needlessly risky and foolish. I would hope Coach Harbaugh is smarter than this.
And regardless, neither MSU nor OSU fans are going to back off their current level of obnoxiousness. If Michigan goes into East Lansing and easily handles MSU this year, Spartan fans will write it off as a one time anomaly. We caught them in an odd rebuilding year, but nothing has fundamentally changed, etc. The only way their collective psyche will be shaken is when we string some wins together or beat them when they're a strong favorite and that won't be settled in one game, certainly not this season's game.

This idea terrified me. I feel like it could only end badly; like Old Biff stealing Doc Brown's time machine and going back to 1955 to give Young Biff the sports almanac kind of badly.

I'll accept losing to the rival that least impacts our chances of making it to Indianapolis in December. Smart money puts that as MSU, since I don't see them getting through their schedule with just one or zero conference losses.
So, yeah, if we're hoisting the Big 10 Trophy in December, I couldn't give a damn what those cretins in East Lansing say about us.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||If Sparty Is Opposed...||
...to back-to-back home games in Ann Arbor, we could just realign the B1G divisions again, put them in the West and f#*k them if they want a protected cross-divisional game with us.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Real or not, MSU getting two||
Real or not, MSU getting two straight home games against us a few years ago played into the narrative that they had leveled the playing field against us. Having the B1G turn around 5 years later and swtich things back in favor of Michigan getting two straight home games would just reinforce the reality that nothing has really changed in the grand hierarchy of the conference. That would be fun.

And the idea that a guy like Ginn could beat Bolt in a 40 yard race isn't so far-fetched since Bolt is a notoriously slow starter.

We can just beat them by a couple of scores and have the trick plays not matter. Let's do that.
