- The team cannot turn the ball over three times and expect to win this game.
- Urban played to win; Harbaugh played to extend the game on the road. Advantage: Urban. Wilton Speight was right on the call following the overtime touchdown and that was to go for two. They kicked the extra point and then settled for a field goal. Look at Urban's face when he has to settle for a field goal; the man is going to go for touchdowns any time he plays us so Michigan must not quickly settle for field goals.
- The offensive line on the right side particularly Kalis made too many mistakes.
- Darboh had drops in last years game that didn't matter but his drops this year were key.
- The defense played lights out! LIGHTS OUT! The only thing that stopped them was being ask to do a tad too much. They were on the field way too long in the second half and the fatigue showed in overtime.
- Kenny Allen had an amazing game!
- Someone pointed out the salary of our coaches and called he/she a douche but it must be emphasized that our coaches get payed the money; they do to lead Michigan to victory.
- The officials were indeed horrible but when you play close and it comes down to a critical call then you can't be shocked if it goes against you even if it is a bad call.

I don't know how to be even handed with this comment. I was shocked to read Brian's degree is in software development.

I hope he rests in peace as well.
I would like to know the vote of 73 among the athletic directors. What could it hurt at this point?
|8 weeks 23 hours ago||Oversigning and Michigan||
Michigan has allowed fifth year seniors to sign with other schools. I know of only one instance where Michigan told a player who had a history of injuries that he shouldn't play (Pipkins). There is no complaints of oversigning or grey-shirting. This guy is being foolish.

Play action on first down would be nice and depending on where the throw is going most likely incomplete. I think everyone saw the same quarterback and he missed open receivers. I know a post above mentioned the four red zone trips with three field goals but Darboh was open on one and Speight threw behind him. What do you do?
Attempting somehow to keep the offense on the field when your QB is missing throws or playing nervously while FSU is selling out against the run is right things to do. Apparent to me that at the midway point of the fourth quarter FSU's defense looked gassed and we started running the ball better. The lead was Michigan's at that point and if A) we tackle the return man prior to a 70 yard return or B) Lewis actually gets a hand on the ball in the end zone then we are praising the game plan more considerably.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||Playcalling||
Thinking about the game in retrospect, the playcalling was the right way to go. If your QB cannot hit consistently mid-to-long range throws and you have no running game then selecting plays that can keep the offense on the field and the defense off the field is the right move. Michigan started running the ball with consistently in the fourth quarter and that is because they won the time of possession battle all game.
The two most dishearting aspects of this game was the mental errors on special teams and the defense. Our coaching staff made far too many right moves inspite of weaknesses. I know some might even blame the offensive line and they didn't look great but if Wilton had played with some constency early on then this is a blowout win.
I am not going to blame Spieght either as he is still young. Really just a bunch of bad breaks for the team this year.

I cringe when I return to a post and notice a few spelling errors. You nailed my sentiment.
My main beef with this thread is Bruce posted on a public forum that the recruit's mom happened to read. Any Michigan fan could face a similar scenario of posting a public comment on a site only to be addressed directly by the offended individual (or family). Bruce could have responded better but this is clearly not a case where he was "seeking out" a recruit or family member. He saw the need to respond and he is allowed to.
The downside of public engagement is you open yourself up to criticism and Bruce has egg on his face. The upside is when you feel the need to respond to someone the opportunity is there. Our coach takes full advantage of this with his twitter account.
This thread reeks of a piling on after a former Michigan player outed a guy who handleself poorly on the internet. I have readily joined in on the discussion but I would have been fine not knowing who Bruce was.
|18 weeks 23 hours ago||Actually||
Bruce should not have used the language he did in his second response but he is most certainly allowed to post in a public venue. Anyone of us could have made the first comment in our thoughts about another school and I have no doubt all of us have posted publicly on other websites or services.
I would have thank the recruits mom for responding explained my thoughts and refrained from using statements such as "I was joking" as he was not and "don't get your panties in a bunch." I don't think he desire to convey what he thinks is a mediocre program is wrong nor is he wrong for responding.
Gave you a downvote because I fail to see much of a difference between your public shaming and Bruce's. Looks as if you are attempting to a white knight in hopes that recruits might see it and gush.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Most fans||
Fans of various teams will spark interest in a particular bowl game. I will watch the Orange Bowl but will not watch the CFP or any other bowl game mainly because I do not have the time.
Knowing that Michigan has the team to compete in the CFP but is playing in the Orange Bowl produces anger. I will get over it I assume along with the rest of our fan base probably when next season starts. The worst part is having to wait another year to get a crack at OSU when the scoreboard should have had Michigan on top. Few will care that we beat FSU; it will be more about not beating Iowa and OSU.

First off scrub; don't respond abrasively dropping the f-bomb without knowing the intent of my post. For one, I don't care if Jim Harbaugh is fined from a money and punishment standpoint. I hope Jim Harbaugh isn't fined because coaches should be allowed to address officiating when it is less-than-stellar. Feel better scrub?
|21 weeks 5 days ago||General Observations||
I, for one, am growing tired of "the script." The script being that Michigan finds a way to lose; there is always an excuse. We sulk after the game is over and endure Ace's quick postgame post. Some of us move on after a couple of hours but atleast I was giddy for the first time in years when Michigan went up by 10 in the 3rd quarter.
This one hurt because Michigan lead up until the last second. I am tired and sad; I don't want to "wait till next year."
|21 weeks 5 days ago||Possibly||
He is a fiery individual but I would rather have someone passionate than passive. Just look at Urban when OSU was on defense in overtime. If the officials decide to punish the Michigan football team for the coaches behavior then that is on them. Coach Harbaugh responded correctly by pointing to their errors. I just hope he isn't fined.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||The comments||
Jim Harbaugh did not lose to Kirk Ferentz; Michigan lost to Iowa. Games played on the road against MSU, Iowa, Wisconsin, OSU, and even Penn State are going to be tough. Don Brown put the defense into a position to succeed and they only surrendered 12 points. The offensive coaching staff served up plays at several key times that if completed successfully would have given us anywhere from 5 to 19 point victory.
The offensive line had a horrible game. Wilton Speight had a horrible game. Khalid Hill who is used to ramming into a whole defensive line fumbled away the first possession of the second half. So many plays went wrong for Michigan because of the environment; our opponent's play; and maybe even the time of day. We played our first tough night game on the road in a hostile environment that Michigan has struggled in recently. Everything needed to go well and it didn't. Every phase of the game will need to be flawless against Ohio State. If Michigan losses it won't be due to coaching.
I expect Michigan to bounce back.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Poor blocking||
Poor blocking by the offensive line and Speights missing on all the long balls; that was the difference.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Couldn't care less||
Could not care less about us making it in the CFP with one loss if that one loss is against Ohio State. We must starting beating that school again. If Michigan losses then they will be out and the likely participants will be Alabama, Washington, Clemson, and OSU.

According to the article, it seems as if the incident was handled correctly by those in authority. For those who have asked, what is the answer, you punish the wrong doing. This has been the historical answer and will continue to be the answer.

I was thinking the same thing as I realized the possibility of this play being utilized more.
Goalline plays seems much more difficult to execute with success. At least it seems like it to me without seeing any sort of data.

The goal should not be to win against this hated rival it should be to put up more points than OSU scored against them on Saturday.
Looking forward to a 77-0 win with the fourth string getting action.

I made a typo in my original statement but you caught the message I was conveying.
Michigan needs to play at a top level versus both teams. MSU can have few victories and play at a much higher level versus Michigan. Wisconsin has fielded great teams for over a decade now. So in this case the op's question is irrelevant and Michigan will need to have a high energy level and great execution versus both teams to win.
