"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

If this is lost on you and not good enough then beat it. You won't be missed. This staff has a decades worth of expectations to overcome and years of delusion. So far, so good in my veiw. I don't care if they lost OSU by 50. It still counts the same as the other 10 out of 12 years, and it shitty. After getting dragged across the filed in EL for two years to a couple plays making a difference thats a nice change. Michigan isn't what they were and with the parity if college football they might never be but this staff gives them a chance to compete and grow and win big games down the road. It's not a bad deal, so quit being babies because they'll alwayswin their fair share wiht this staff..

I was only slightly more optimistic. I pegged losses to Utah, MSU, PSU and OSU before the year. Glad I was wrong.

But I don't think Harbaugh cares about them like a lot of coaches and fans do. Its just BS fluff for the borderline useless media trolls. I actually wish more coaches would apporach them like Dantonio did with his "next question" presser. To me, thats how you deal with their stupid questions like "how big was 'so and so?' and "what about abou 'random kids play?'".

These kids are a 8 win team but won 9. Should have lost a couple more games but didn't because they've been though some "stuff" the last couple of years and learned how to say screw it, on to the next. I wouldn't have blamed them for shitting the bed after the MSU game with two losses.

Then screw you. It's year one! Year one after 4 years of clapping, offensive line "watching" and shitty play calling. It will take two years to fix the entitlement and learned bad habits. I expect Shane Morris to be a beast next year and be fired up to play. Same for BOTH lines too.

Having the 3rd or 4th biggest stadium in the world helps with a legit schedule having MSU and OSU on it helps. Next year...
|8 hours 59 min ago||Michigan fans||
Many of them are the biggest drawback to the job. Tough game but they're ahead on my meaningless schedule at 9-3. If OSU beats MSU or at least loses close to Connor Cook it might have been a game.

This program would kill for a couple 6 wins seasons. It's such a dumpster fire.
|9 hours 5 min ago||Good!||
The kids seemed to respond to him pretty well and played their asses off when they could have said screw it. It's Illinois guys, Bill Cubit is a legit coach and I think the Illini did well here given their situation.
|9 hours 9 min ago||Good coach||
Wrong fit for Michigan. That seems to be a bigger deal than I thought 6 years ago. I don't think a Pete Carroll wins like Dantonio at MSU or a Dantonio at USC. But when you win 75% of your games, you fit there.

Might be a good fit and Maryland and I'm not being a jerk about it. That guy is about Maryland/Rutgers peak to me.
|9 hours 14 min ago||Ugh!||
Shut the fuck up ESPN. You don't know shit and probably made up that Miles was out. You fucker give money to Skip Bayless and Stephen A Smith which equals zero credibility.

I've heard that before though. When MSU lost Cousins, Greg Jones and Gordon at LB. When they lost Bell. When they lost Bullough and Dennard. Yet they're in the hunt every year.

Like SEC overrated.
|1 week 2 days ago||Well said my friend||
The players who actually play the game handle losses better than many fans.
|1 week 2 days ago||Nope||
Over the years (especially this year) after suffering true losses in life I don't at all. After the MSU while still standing in the stadium I felt bad for 5 minutes and moved on. Perspective is something I have gained and getting mad at sports or "shutting down" seems really, really silly from mine. Hell, the players don't even "shut down" after a loss why should I considering how I little I have invested compared to them.

I wouldn't mind seeing the block M back on the pants too.

The fact the main card had fighters from Poland, Canada, Austrialia, Brazil, New Zealand, Netherlands, along with the USA really backs that up. It's pretty much the number two sport in Brazil after soccer and it's growing all throughout Europe but go ahead, use it as a dig against the American society.
|1 week 6 days ago||Randy Couture vs James Toney||
That to me is the textbook striker vs grappler fight. I don't think former heavyweight boxing champ Toney ever threw a punch in the fight.
|1 week 6 days ago||It obvious that he doesn't care||
He's only a multiple time woman beater who did jail time for getting caught the last time. He got caught because he beat the mother of his children in front of them. Clearly he doesn't give a shit that he is a pimple on the ass of life.

When I flip to that game I'm going to have to mute it because they are just turrrrble. The color commentator makes Matt Millen look like a broadcasting God.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Nice touch by all||
Often times those with the most invested in the rivalries get "it" while those with the least invested simply don't and never will.

From what I've understood MSU's commit policy is not that different than Michigans under Hoke. If you're taking officals, you're not commited. At the same time why not take a few free trips if you're a 17-18 year old kid and enjoy that part of recruiting now that your football season is done?
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe Bill O is a dick||
Ryan Mallett is also a dick. A dick who was being paid very well to hold a clipboard and show up on time. I guess that was asking too much for $2.5 million.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Probably not||
In most cases I would say no but at schools where womens baskteball is a revenue stream (Tennessee, UConn) I wouldn't be surprised.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Not too bad||
I felt for the most part everyone, both Michigan and MSU fans were better than most years. The only really ugly thing I saw was an adult Michigan fan that was taunting a MSU kid (about 12) and his mom. He was a complete ass but was booted just about the time the flyover took place and never made it to his seat. This was the first year I didn't see any fights before, during or after the game as well.
I'm sure it's out there but I think it would be interesting to see ejections over the years and see how they vary between noon and 3:30 starts. Since Pioneer, UM Golf Course and AAG&O were full before 10:30 a lot of people had plenty of time to get stupid.

Cardale Jones is lacking the deep threat WR's that he needs to be successful. Players like Devin Smith and to a lesser extent Evan Spencer really helped Jones become the the player he was in those last three games. I believe that OSU just increased their chances to win out quite a bit by going with JT Barrett because it will help open up lanes for Elliott and will result in more touches for Braxton Miller. To me at least, a backfield with Barrett, Elliott and Miller will offer up many options for the Buckeyes offense.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Exactly!||
Couldn't agree more. We show up, tailgate, watch the game and go home. That's our "prep" and effort that we as fans put into the game.
It was a great game, one of the best Michigan games I've seen in a while. I was in EL last year and watched pretty much the same team get plastered up and down the field. So when I see a game like yesterday I see the work that the players have put in and can appreciate their effort.

This is a very, very small sample of Michigan fans. If you've ever read the comments on a Detroit news site, MLive or even the Michigan football page on Facebook you would see that Michigan fans and others are very much a like.
