While nothing justified the twisting of Robinson's head, at least there was some basis for claiming Lewan wasn't the nicest fellow out on the grid iron.
What was worse is the completely invented story that a Lewan racial slur is what prompted Gholston to punch him. The claim was started by a poster on RCMB. Eventually the mods there told him to cut it out since it was just a completely fabricated story, but that never slowed anything down (and ever since that one comment by the mods, they just let the lie continue to be repeated. The idiots there know the story is false, but if Lewan's name ever comes up, there's still a half dozen or more posters using various labels to claim he's racist.

I seriously doubt it, especially if Harbaugh is involved, which I would expect him to be. Before the season started, Harbaugh said he ran a meritocracy, then asked the reporters if that was a word, or if he had just invented it. But, it's not just that he said it, but there seems to be evidence for it all over the field. He keeps players competing all season and is not afraid to replace a starter with a backup.

At least the calls to start O'Korn have died down. Speight is doing a really good job. O'korn seems to tuck and run at the first sign of pressure, which isn't always a bad thing, but I think he overestimates his speed and what kind of yardage he can get that way.
Remembering Rudock and watching Speight this season makes me wonder if Harbaugh is less a fan of athletic ability than he is intelligence and football IQ. Now that's just an impression, and there's not really any statistics that can prove such a claim, but whatever Harbaugh's approach, it's working. I also would not be surpised to see Speight as a round 2 or 3 NFL draft pick in a few years.

He's talking about after the interception when Glasgow is blocking for Thomas and takes out two Illinois players by throwing one into the other. Thomas still gets tackled right away, but not by either of the two players Glasgow blocked.

Not to take anything away from the Michigan coaches or players, but you do also need to give at least part of the credit to Adam for asking intelligent questions.

He took visits to ASU and Mizzou. Apparently Ferentz has a policy against commits visiting other schools and the Iowa coaches are the ones who sent him on his way.

I agree, except I'm not sure Baylor is all that far behind in terms of unimpressive undefeated teams.

Right. It affected his ulnar nerve wich caused numbness in his throwing hand. He injured it in the Illinois game then reinjured against Nebraska. He had problems holding and throwing the ball the rest of the year.

Maryland has not looked good the past two weeks, losing 38-14 to PSU and 31-10 to Minnesota. I'm not sure if their starting QB is still out with injury, but Will Likely injured his knee and might not play. Maryland will probably only win one more game this year, Rutgers.

McDowell was completely unblocked on three plays that I saw, and it wasn't because he was stunting or moving around. On one McDowell sack, the NW center just moved out of McDowell's way to double team another rusher, leaving an open path to the QB right up the middle. McDowell is very good, but NW's OL mistakes made him look even better.

Boise State has the highest winning percentage among Div 1 schools that were formerly community colleges.

Anyone paying attention already knew Harbaugh is here for the long haul. He is a family man and loves Ann Arbor as a great place to raise a family. JUB's confirmation of this is just icing on the cake.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||My fandom reduced quite a bit||
My fandom reduced quite a bit in the late 80 early 90s through the early 2000s due to a combination of grad school, then marriage, children, and moving to Oklahoma. When my children got into high school, they became interested in going into games and started asking me about football rules, and that got me re-interested in following Michigan Football. I even have attended some college football games with one or more child, including the Sugar Bowl, two games at Nebraska (one UM, one MSU), Oklahoma State's win over Washington in the Cactus Bowl, and last year's MSU debacle against Alabama (that I tried to keep my Sparty daughter from realizing how much I was enjoying the beat down).

I wish the ref had called a number for that infraction. It looked like a blown call--there really was no block in the back, but it's hard to be sure since we don't know who it was called on.

I'm not sure it was a called play. I thought the holder had trouble with the snap so did what he was supposed to do in that situation.

The SI reporter breaking this story is the same one who made up most of the story slamming Okie State last year. I wouldn't be at all surprised if he doesn't have a source at all. It's an easy enough claim to make.

The one comment (that he repeated several times) that annoyed me was about the officiating, when the Wisconsin NT was called for holding. Griese kept saying a Michigan player should have been called for holding (which he might not have been wrong about), but even after the replay showed the NT with an obvious hold: arm extended with a handful of the back of the Michigan player's jersey, Griese kept insisting he didn't see a hold. It seems like sometimes he just tries too hard to prove he's not a homer.

No, Wolverine Historian is who is being refered to. He's a poster who has put up edited versions of a lot of old games.

"To be honest I think we did [need a game like this]," said Butt. "We can look back and learn from this."
This was my thought as well.

|6 weeks 2 days ago||I agree. Why was there not||
I agree. Why was there not somebody on the OSU staff who knew the rule and threw a fit? With all the money paid for coaching and support staff, shouldn't there be somebody tasked with knowing the rule book backwards and forwards? Have that person stand near the head coach with a copy of the rule book and voiciferously intervene when the officials make an error like this.
