|1 day 8 hours ago||Why?||
USC will have a home field advantage and the refs will give them at least 14 points. Michigan has seen enough biased crews and played enough 11-on-18 ball this season. Let PSU be the foil for the "Rebirth of Mighty USC."
|1 day 8 hours ago||Fuck It||
No more making excuses for bad officiating. The refs cost Michigan both games. With competent, non-biased referees, undefeated Michigan would have played Wiscy for the BTC last night. All of the rest is smoke and mirrors.
Michigan is the #2 team in the country this year. I'm not ready to say they are better than Bama cause of how Bama cheats in recruiting, but I would have loved to find out.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Hmmm||
Put OSU at #4 and give them Alabama. Let the two most corrupt teams play each other and see how far OSU has to go before they can buy Alabama-level talent. While I am not happy at the prospect of Michigan playing yet another road game, this time against FSU, in the Orange Bowl, it's still a great result for Harbaugh's second year.
I think the most important issue for Michigan is to address the biased officiating. We didn't complain as much after Iowa, but officiating was largely responsible for that loss, too. If Iowa hadn't been given their gift "roughing" calls, Michigan would have been 11-1 even with the theft in Columbus and Clemson would have probably been relegated to #4 with an OSU-Michigan rematch coming up on a neutral site.
Sadly, the way it works out for Michigan is that they always have to be so clearly superior that horrible calls don't cost them games. I just want to see the refs call the games fair. If they had this year, undefeated Michigan would have played Wiscy last night.

You can't call OSU "cheaters" without calling the only program that cheats more prolifically than OSU cheaters, too. As in: "Cheaters, Clemson, Cheaters, Washington."
I am pissed that I am still waiting for the NCAA to level the playing field by letting players get paid like they should have been all along.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Speaking of OSU and Bama...||
I am tired of the NCAA not bothering to enforce their rules concerning benefits to recruits and "student-athletes." Anyone who is paying attention can easily figure out who is opening up the pockets of friendly boosters to amass incredible recruiting classes.
It's time to make it legal for players to take money so teams like Michigan can recruit on a level playing field with teams like OSU and Bama.
|2 days 6 hours ago||It does suck||
It does suck, and I wish he had gone to the MAC or MVC. He has the heart for major college basketball, but doesn't have the body. He'll make a great coach someday.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Front-loaded schedule||
IIRC, two of the teams they played in their first four games were defending state champions in their classes and another was ranked #2 in a different state. Whatever the case, they played three elite teams in their first four games.
It turned out to be a great move.
|5 days 5 hours ago||I don't||
I agree with not giving a shit. He wasn't good enough to start for a 4-8 team. I hope he goes to MSU and creates even more chaos with their chemistry.
|5 days 15 hours ago||Glad||
I am glad Harbaugh exposed the terrible officiating. The officiating in that game became a national sports topic this week and rightfully so.
|5 days 15 hours ago||OSU is next||
It's past time for OSU to get caught. When they were caught paying recruits and players, instead of stopping like Michigan Basketball did, they denied everything and escalated the cheating.
They are just one "smoking gun" away from vacating a lot of games.

I want six teams: all Power Five champions and one other champion. Making it champions only is the best way to make the conference championships actually mean something. Otherwise, why even bother having conference championships?
|1 week 19 hours ago||Best possible outcome||
I was happy to see Harbaugh reject the "code" and "out" the refs for their terrible "work." Harbaugh has a high profile and it''s great to see his voice being used to call attention to obvious injustice.
As for his anger, it is even better because while we "hate" Ohio State, Ohio State really does hate us. So does Sparty. It's great to have a coach who is going to hate them back as actively as they hate Michigan. There won't be an edge in "intangibles" for OSU or Sparty from this point forward.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Isaac||
Ty was the fourth-best back and his carries reflected his talent. So much for Rivals five stars being auto-Gods...
|1 week 19 hours ago||Ugh||
What pisses me off the most is that if they get refs from Michigan, they don't slant the game in Michigan's favor like Ohio people do for OSU. The slant only seems to go one way, and it's not toward Ann Arbor.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Come on?||
Stop dreaming about Peppers coming back. If Peppers was your son, would you tell him to turn down $15 million guaranteed on his first contract so he can risk injury to have a $50,000 year of education?
Didn't think so.
|1 week 19 hours ago||"Appears he's going?"||
Of course he's going. He will get a guarantee around $15 million at his projected draft position. Harbaugh will be the first to tell him he can't turn down that kind of money and really has all to lose and nothing to gain by coming back.
He has been a pleasure to watch and I hope he has a Woodson-like career in the NFL if he wants to stay that long.
|1 week 1 day ago||Hmmm||
I really think the playoff should be for champions only, but if it isn't, I would think the NCAA would love to have a rematch of a game that broke viewership and streaming records as one of its semifinals.
Not that money EVER has ANYTHING to do with the decisions made by "The Committee..."
|1 week 2 days ago||Not a conspiracy||
lIt's not a conspiracy, but something has happened to make officials hate Michigan and fuck them whenever possible. It was long before Brandon so we can't blame it on him.
|1 week 3 days ago||I am stunned||
I am stunned at the Herman to LSU news. I live in NOLA, and almost everyone I have read in this market and region pretty much thought Herman to Texas was a "done deal."
|1 week 3 days ago||So did I||
Not only to upvote, but to see if he had reached triple digits yet. I am surprised he didn't get triple digits for the best title all year.
|1 week 5 days ago||Indeed||
Can you imagine having to tell recruits that Ypsi is a great town to spend the next four years in? I would take them in via Ann Arbor on their visits.
|2 weeks 5 hours ago||Well...||
Since OSU is 12-2 against Michigan ever since Jim Tressel ushered in world class cheating via prolific bagmen at OSU in 2001, I am all for anything that can go in Michigan's locker room and give them an edge.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Maybe||
Slot guys get used more now. He may have actually had a chance to catch some passes.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||BS||
Ferentz didn't "outcoach" Harbaugh. He didn't even come close. Michigan was bad, the refs were worse and Iowa played their best game of the year.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I like it||
Every team needs to play a few tomato cans every year. Rutgers is not only a great tomato can, but it lets those NJ recruits play at "home" a couple of times during their careers at Michigan.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||USC?||
Though the system was actually created the way it was thanks to UCLA's 6-6 team that played in the Pac 12 Championship game against Oregon, USC is the kind of team that illustrates why they don't just give champions an automatic berth. Sorry, but three losses are at least one too many and probably two too many. The whole season counts: not just the last half.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Missing Years||
Mic higan had two periods of "Missing Years:" the one we just suffered through and the one from 1951-1968. The "Den of Mellow Men," for whatever reasons, had a lot more arrogance than results. They had a great year in 1964, but that was their only Big Ten Chammpionship during those years.
Michigan was 4-12-2 aganst Sparty and 6-12 against OSU. AFAIC, keep the Original Missing Years out of it and start modern football in 1969.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Speed Bump||
Due to graduation losses, I think we might have to put up with a "speed bump" next year and a 9-3 regular season. However, after next year's brief step back, I see Michigan as a perennial playoff contender.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||66th in FL||
Rivals had him as a 3* and only the 66th best prospect in FL. But there are a lot of great players in Florida. I am guessing he would have been at least a four star in Michigan, for example, and ranked a lot higher than 66th.
That is why it's so great to see Harbaugh networking in the south. Three-stars in FL, TX, CA and the 'Dirty South" states of GA, MS, AL and LA are often better players than four stars from other parts of the country.
