Good lord. Yes, I understand that you read Mgoblog all the time and that you value its content over others' when it comes to M football. This is natural, this blog is the best for that, we know. But it's okay to acknowledge that sometimes something written about Michigan football not located on this website is decent. Yeah, it might not be "earth-shattering" and it might not bend your mind with new concepts and enlarge your grasp of college football in ways you never could have foreseen, but it could still be a decent piece of writing about the state of the program.

I think some of you guys are underestimating how difficult it is to write. And anyhow, articles like this are meant to be reflective of the current situation, not revelatory about it.

Because they sound like the names of foreigners. Also, it should be O'Pelini.

Maybe we can get Carr to come back. We'd promise never to complain about 8-4 / 9-3 seasons during which we'd beat Sparty every year, the Buckeyes every other year, lose a weird game at Iowa now and then (or whatever the analogue to Iowa is in our division), demoralize Penn State year after year, and then lose to USC or Oregon or Bama in a big bowl game most years by 10 or 14. Sounds good to me.

I have to say I'm happy we never pursued Fitzgerald like some people (I won't mention names) wanted.

After all these years you still think the ND game can tell us anything about the team? No one thought we'd nearly get beaten by UConn or Akron after last year's game. As usual, people were pretty optimistic after the victory. The ND game is always magic and illusion.

Also, I think college football is almost a different game from the NFL. I know many of us do not follow the NFL at all. CFB doesn't aspire to be like the NFL and neither does its fans want it to. It has its own (richer) history and traditions. Whereas, I imagine the MLS aspires to have the kind of talent and tradition that other soccer leagues have.

That's just within the state of Michigan. Nationwide, Michigan has a significantly higher following.

I thought his behavior in the State game was embarrassing. Any moral edge we might have thought we had because of the 2011 game was mocked because of Lewan.

True, but it has to be said that the goal is not someday to match MSU. The expectation for a Michigan coach is to have a clear edge in that rivalry. Our coaches from RR to the present have been failing that expectation. But don't get me wrong: I think Hoke should get another two years.

That's true, but he coaches for MSU, not Michigan. What's passable at State is not passable at here.

Dude, we're talking about scheduling Florida.
Anyhow, I assume such teams would rather play us than any other team in the B1G, aside from maybe OSU. This won't change because of some losses.

The B1G won't get respect unless it beats an SEC team. Same goes with the ACC.
The SEC is still the best conference, and I think a one-loss Auburn should get the nod over the Buckeyes, who are the beneficiaries of a weak conference.

Afterwards, the upset is rationalized just like every other upset is rationalized ("well, Gardner does have a lot of raw talent, and plus they had Gallon and Funchess, too, and the D is pretty good....")

When will this kind of gratuitous, cloying patriotism cease to be a part of nearly ever athletic event?

Carr may have been 7-4 or similiar in the week heading into The Game, but there are different ways to be 7-4. We're 7-4 in just about the worst way possible.
I felt the same way about Rodriguez's final 7-5 year.
A 7-4 Carr team might've underperformed a bit (and that might be an understatement) but it was never a total disaster over a span of games like we've seen under Rodriguez and Hoke. A 7-4 Carr team was always dangerous.

It is a truism: If you bring reason to any discussion of the US military's aims and high rhetoric, you will likely piss the majority of people off.

True, this idea that our "freedom" is under constant threat is overstated, to put it very mildly.

We have always known that academics is important to Hand. Now all of a sudden (since the moment he committed to Alabama) Michigan people are acting as if all he cared about was football. The same kid we praised as a potential recruit for caring about academics is now being treated as if it was only about football.
We know that if he wanted to study engineering he was going to choose Alabama. To me, this only makes sense if he was steered away from the engineering program at Michigan.

His Dudeness and Section 1 are truly two of my favorite posters. I'd also like to give a shout-out to jmblue, whose posts have emanated calm and sound reason for years now.

True, he's being civil, but he's openly challenging (repeatedly and at exhaustive nit-picky length) Brian's take on things. SC's civility doesn't change the fact that he's saying (with a certain level of aggression) that Brian's ultimately wrong.
You have to defend yourself against such a thing, and Brian's doing so.
|43 weeks 6 days ago||It's clear to all of us that||
It's clear to all of us that Brian and SC have been having a kind of dialogue about this. I don't see how you could take anything Brian said as abusing his power(!!) or slighting SC.
They happen to disagree, and Brian happens to be correct on this score :)

I thought it distasteful how Bolden and others celebrated after he (likely) concussed that Nebraska player. He wasn't celebrating any on-field result of the block, obviously. You should be able to take a player out of the play without trying to take his head off. But I guess that's football.

Eh, Space Coyote is a little too comfortable with Borges's playcalling for my taste. After every game, the pressers would contain reams and reams of thick paragraphs analyzing why he persisted in calling plays that were doomed not to work.

I assume that until Borges calls a decent game or is fired we'll see a post like this every day. It's just an indicator of the overall level of frustration.
