I hope somebody in the media asks Harbaugh about those two plays and whether or not he's submitting them to the league office for review. In this way, it puts pressure on the Big Ten office to offer an explanation. I don't care about consequences to the Minnesota players (I'm sure there won't be any). But I want them to say, "yes, we missed those calls, those should be targeting calls [or at least one of them] and we will be reviewing our procedures with our officials."
I am sure this is a pipe dream fueled by tipsy-ness.

The crappy part is that the officials could literally have watched the replay. If they had and said no targeting, then fine. But there was no attempt. If Bolden was ejected for his hit, I have no idea how these two hits weren't even reviewed.

Whatever we think doesn't matter. Coaches were important to Mike Weber, especially coaching stability, hence why he dropped Michigan down. Then OSU does this? The timing of Drayton leaving was too convenient. I'd think being honest and forthright with a 17 year old should be more important than getting him to sign.
As many have mentioned, a LOI is a really bad thing too.

There are 2 threads on the front page right now that are all about UM's biggest rivals. Have you read all of the CC comparisons including Meyer and Dantonio? We compare UM's successes/failures to its rivals all the time. Also, I was right behind these people at a game totally not involving MSU:

One win 2.5 years ago makes up for stuggling like this?

I thought about that after I posted this. We're not anywhere near them.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||If Devin and Morris are||
If Devin and Morris are equally detrimental to UM's chances to win, you've gotta start Morris to give him experience. As much as I think Devin is a good guy and a great leader for our team, his play on the field isn't cutting it.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||100% agree||
Defense is above average, great. But the offense can't do jack. Saturdays are for studying. I hope the best for the players, but I'm done with the coaches. They haven't shown me a pattern of success for me to put any faith in their ability to beat a team as good as or better than themselves.

Nobody cares about the Michigan Man, it means nothing, it doesn't get the football closer to winning games, and keeps the program in the past rather than looking toward the future. We are becoming ND with all our references to past glories. Hell, at least ND made it to a national championship game. What does UM have to show for any of this? An uninspiring Sugar Bowl win? Screw the Michigan Man meme. And Paul Bunyan? Are you talking about the rough and tumble guy who's residing in East Lansing (and looks to be taking up permanent residence there)?

But it takes good coaching to bring out the best in them. Michigan is a talented team as evidenced by multiple services' ratings, but they have underperformed for years. What makes a good team great relies on several things: coaching is perhaps the most important. Under Luke Fickell, OSU went 6-7. The very next season with mostly the same players, Urban Meyer went undefeated. Michigan routinely outrecruits Michigan State, but look at who has been more successful lately; I attribute that to coaching. Hoke's record at Michigan has continued to deteriorate despite his excellent recruitment of players. He's the head coach and he is to blame.
The "true fans" talk is irrelevant to Michigan's on-field successes/failures. For the first time since I was 8 years old, I haven't gotten that butterfly feeling when kickoff for a Michigan game approaches. Does that mean I'm not a true fan anymore? I don't care. I just want them to win, and I want to look forward to Saturday football again.

What the hell are you talking about? "Street ball?" There are only "a few respectful young men out there, but not the majority?"

and you don't pick up on a Fab 5 reference? The Illinois student section chanted "crack house" to Jalen Rose after the bust at a party he attended. Jalen promptly went off for 23 points.

Michigan has good games and bad games. This one was a bad one. Why harp on it? The team that turns the ball over less and shoots better wins the vast majority of the time. All this post does is remind us of this fact. I'm getting tired of the faux-analytical nature of this blog. Basketball is a sport full of unpredictability. Shoehorning statistical analysis into it is a fool's errand. Kaminsky had a great game, Stauskus had a bad one, and that's basically it.
Don't get me wrong, I appreciate some of the meta analyitics like Kenpom. However, this game isn't explained by them as effectively.

has got to do something more than kick it out for a contested 3 when he has the PG on his back. Make a post move, come on!
|2 years 2 weeks ago||I agree with you 100% OP.||
I, for one, am sick and tired of coaches giving 3 word answers to reporters' questions and players giving cliches during postgame. The reporters are there for a reason, and that's to get an inside view of the game on the field. Well, Erin Andrews got exactly that. Don't complain when you get exactly what you want.

People unassociated with a fraternity or sorority are referred to as "Goddamned Independents" or Geeds, for short. It implies that they're un-bro.
