|1 day 17 hours ago||Well, at least there's always||
Looking forward to eating and drinking heavily tomorrow.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Man, we blow chunks right now||
No inside game AT ALL, and in this one, no outside game either. Extremely disappointing.
|2 days 2 hours ago||My sincere codolences to the OSU student's family||
But, it sounds like an event that needs to end. It's good that Ohio State doesn't sanction or encourage it. However, it's probably going to take something like the police declaring it a public nuisance and hazard to get it stopped. With all the injuries (and now a death), health risks, and cost to clean up the area every year, they need to find a safer and more positive way to channel their enthusiasm for the Game.
|2 days 19 hours ago||One of my biggest and best||
Big House memories. I fan still picture John Kolesar running toward our end of the stadium in the fading light, running under Harbaugh's pass. Immortal.
|2 days 22 hours ago||I would hope that the powers that be at OSU||
are keeping a close eye on the Urban-led program. His history is dubious at best, and leopards don't change their spots easily despite your assertion that "Urban has matured".
|3 days 4 hours ago||Yeah pretty sure they do||
Speaking of bowl game stuff, I have a big collection of Michigan bowl game glasses going back to the early 80's. They all have the bowl game logo, year, and teams on the front, and the scores of all the games on the back. Some years recently I haven't been able to buy them any more -probably because no one made them.
|3 days 4 hours ago||Ha ha ha, so true||
I LOVE Christmas stuff, but I can't handle Bronners any more. Actually, there's a lot of junk there and your brain starts to fry after a while looking at the glitter and lights. Then there's the endless crowds of people with kids.....
|3 days 5 hours ago||Nothing to be concerned about||
one way or the other. I'd guess in the future, Michigan will definitely go into Ohio more and more. This year, they're leveraging relationships the new coaches have in other states first.
|3 days 22 hours ago||As NSD approaches,||
strap yourself in. It's going to be a wild ride!
|4 days 25 min ago||I'm really hoping Terrance Davis||
commits soon. We need another really good lineman in this class and he fits the bill. Delance may just be the odd guy out if he waits too long and wants to come here. But, the late stages of this recruiting year is going to be the most interesting one we've seen, maybe ever here. It has the potential if things go well, to make a huge positive impact on Michigan football in the coming years.
|4 days 2 hours ago||That's one of the saddest pictures||
I've ever seen. How horrible. We once lost a daughter at 4 1/2 months into the pregnancy, but this would be a lot worse I'd think. My prayers are with the Carr family.
|4 days 3 hours ago||Ain't happenin||
Even in the highly unlikely event Penn State beats MSU (which they won't), too many other things have to happen. Buy lottery tickets instead.
|4 days 3 hours ago||Yes, it's definitely both the OL and the RB's||
I pray the coaches stop running Deveon Smith to the outside though. Even if the line blocked most the time, it still is not going to work. Ohio State in particular will blow up any attempt by Smith to bounce it outside.
|4 days 5 hours ago||Ah, another year, another Syracuse||
FB coach being fired. I wonder if anyone can turn that program around.
|4 days 6 hours ago||24-14 Michigan||
Ohio slinks back to Columbus with their tales between their legs.
|4 days 9 hours ago||That's one of the biggest and best||
Visitor lists I've seen in a while. Hope the game goes in our favor.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Whatever the cause or reasons behind||
Corso's on-air struggles, there's no good reason to let him stay on the show so he can "go out on his terms" or because "he's earned it" or some other justification. No one wants to see another person struggle through something that used to be easy for him/her. I've certainly done my share of criticizing Corso, but I'm done with it. I hope that he retires very soon and enjoys the rest of his days, however long that may be.
|6 days 18 hours ago||Our bigs look completely outmatched||
In this game. And that's not by guys bigger than them in all cases. It's hustle and athletic ability too. I wish we could recruit some inside bangers who can score too. We'd be invincible then.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Congratulations to Coach Hartsuff||
Having rowed some myself and been in the Engine school years ago, I can't imagine how these guys balance the two, plus have any social life. Rowing is hard work and it takes a lot of practice to be as good as they are. Hats off to all these student athletes.
|1 week 22 hours ago||Yes||
White on white is boring to me and non-distinctive.
|1 week 1 day ago||Even if he's ranked #2, it doesn't||
mean he'd even be picked in the first round. Most teams (except the Lions) don't expend their highest picks on TE's. So, maybe that would work in our favor.
|1 week 1 day ago||That's really the height of laziness||
There's no other reason I can think of.
|1 week 1 day ago||We've had some great centers in my time||
watching Michigan football - Downing, Lilja, Vitale, Bass, Molk. But I think Steve Everitt was the best and, one of the toughest Michigan players of all time.
|1 week 1 day ago||I feel pretty good about this class||
right now, but the one caveat is LB. We badly need a couple guys who are capable of playing early, and if we whiff on either or both Jones and Bush, that could be a problem.
|1 week 1 day ago||Very sad for the Flutie family||
I've read about other cases like this and I firmly believe it isn't coincidental at all. Physical health and the mind are tied together very closely. I could easily see where the sudden loss of a partner/husband/wife could trigger something like a heart attack - especially if a person is older and does not have the strongest health situation.
|1 week 2 days ago||Free points||
|1 week 2 days ago||If we have 5 scholarship QB's next year||
already and we need to devote another one to Hill, I say no. Not worth it. Now, if he wants to come here and pay his own way, sure. At some point though, I'd rather we not have to rely on transfer QB's to be our starter. Bringing in guys we recruit and develop will be better in the long run.
|1 week 2 days ago||Not good||
It's really too bad if Reese goes elsewhere just because he can't get an EE here. I get that it's important to him. But I would think early playing time is also. Our depth chart at LB for next year should be a good recruiting tool, even though the crystal balls seem to not show that right now. Let's hope things take a turn for the better SOON.
|1 week 3 days ago||This is why the coaches need to go all in||
on getting Caleb Kelly here. They can all but guarantee him being a starter I'd think.
|1 week 4 days ago||Thanks for the preview||
Hard to believe Elon has even a 4% chance at winning, especially on Michigan's home court. Methinks the team formerly known as the Fighting Christians is going to lose by more than 19.
