We've done the be good sports thing with Lloyd Carr, and there were a few time where that actually came back to bite us in the ass. Let's try ruthless for a while and see how that works for us.
|15 hours 23 min ago||Technically, Michigan has||
Technically, Michigan has beaten two ranked teams, although Colorado wasn't ranked at the time we played them.
Still, Bama is the clear #1 team in the country until somebody knocks them off.
Michigan needs to handle their schedule and if things go right, we'll get out chance to match up with the Tide.
|15 hours 45 min ago||Whoa, hold on....||
While PSU has cleared the toughest part of their conference schedule, it's not as if they are so good that every game remaining is a gimme win. The get Iowa at home and travel to Bloomington to play the Hoosiers. They'll probably be favorites in both, but neither game is a sure thing.
|19 hours 27 min ago||Upsets Happen, No Doubt||
The reality here, is this; MSU can't beat Michigan, they are completely overmatched this season. That said, Michigan can certainly beat itself; but if we keep the mistakes to a minimum and play the game we're capable of playing, there's not a damn thing the Spartans can do that would allow them to come out on top.
That said, does anyone think Michigan is going to show up this weekend and play their sloppiest game of the season after all the bullshit they've had to endure from Dantonio and his minions the past few years? Our guys are going to be laser-focused and pissed.
MSU is doomed and paybacks are a bitch.
|19 hours 34 min ago||How many freshmen have played||
How many freshmen have played significant minutes this season already? Michigan may take a step back next season, that's what happens when you wind up at the top of the heap, you usually only have no place to go but down. MSU almost certainly will rebound to be better next year, but their run of 11 win seasons is done and a victory over U of M in Ann Arbor is far from assured.
The league is showing signs of rebounding all around and MSU is about to turn back into a pumpkin.
|19 hours 43 min ago||Unloading?||
Spartans are unloading their tickets? No way, all the rhetoric I've seen from MSU fans on the internet is how they are all true diehard fans while Michigan fans are a bunch of Walmart, bandwagon hoppers. Now you're suggesting that was never true? Say it ain't so.
Show up. Be loud. Demoralize them.

Hearing the term "mediocre school" applied to the reason for decommitting from Notre Dame is just music to my ears.

Good seats for Michigan football season

Friday morning around 8 AM. Turns out MSU doesn't want a lot of publicity around this game anymore.

Brian Kelly went 2-2 against Brady Hoke. With Harbaugh on our sideline, BK can coach at ND as long as he wants as far as I'm concerned.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I don't see us losing to MSU||
I don't see us losing to MSU this season. I know the Hoke Hangover puts doubt in our minds, but their performances to date really seem to indicate a team that's taken a step backward. We're the better team this year and the bitter taste of last year's finish will have us focused.
Payback is coming.

If last season proved anything, it's that no team is unbeatable. OSU looked just as invincible in 2015 and MSU still went into Columbus and took them down. We will need to bring our A-game that weekend, but it's not an impossible task.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Real World Trolling Isn't New||
I remember when I was an undergrad at Ann Arbor back in the early 90's, some White Supremacist group ran a one-page advertisement in the Daily denying the Holocaust. The Daily also ran a long editorial explaining why the position of the advertisement was complete and utter bullshit, but that it was still important in a society that holds the right to a free press as inviolate, to not suppress these opinions.
Point being, bigoted, ignorant fringe groups are going to be bigoted and ignorant and will find a venue to air their point-of-view.

|4 weeks 15 hours ago||I Don't Agree||
During the Rodriguez / Hoke / Brandon interregnum, my passion for Michigan was curtailed. I didn't feel the same kind of pride I had as a student back in the 90's because it felt like so much of what made Michigan special was being eroded by crappy football and incompetent AD management, which is orders of magnitude less severe than the kind of tarnish that has befallen Penn State.
If a scandal the magnitude of the Sandusky affair were to befall Michigan, I can see some people turning their backs on the program. Not all would, of course. Honestly, I'd bet we'd react very similarly to the way Nitanny Lion fans have. We all want to believe we'd handle it differently, but don't kid yourself.
|4 weeks 18 hours ago||Correction||
Tressel didn't leave, he was fired. I'm sorry, I meant to say "retired".
|4 weeks 18 hours ago||Frustrated?||
Is there any evidence that he's frustrated with the state of his program? I don't think there is. He's got two Big Ten titles under his belt, a Rose Bowl victory, a college football playoff berth, and a stellar 8-2 record against their hated rival. He's taken MSU to heights not seen in 50 years.
Every time I see him speak, he's crowing about how MSU has risen to the level of being able to sell results, not hope, etc. He seems pretty comfortable to me.
Now if Harbaugh flips the script over the next few seasons, turns his sexy 8-2 record into 8-5 or 8-6 and starts bagging conference titles and even a National Championship; putting a big batch of tarnish on Dantonio's accomplishments, maybe that attitude changes. Of course, by then, Dantonio would be in his mid-60's rather than early 60's and it would be moot point as to whether he should seek greener pastures, because it's doubtful that avenue would be open at that point.
Bottom line, he's not leaving MSU.

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.

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.
|4 weeks 4 days 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.
|6 weeks 11 hours 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.
|6 weeks 6 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.
|6 weeks 6 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.
