We're still up 4 and have a efficient, low turnover offense. Trust this team and the coaches.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Seconded||
That was the kind of article about Michigan football I have not read for a while. Informed, concise, and without needless drama.
|44 weeks 1 day ago||Borges must be gone||
Even after last week, I was sure Michigan would struggle to 8 or 9 wins and the coaches would get another year no matter what we thought. Now, with a negative rushing game at home against a middling Nebraska D? With players that look like they are going through the motions? With the crowd booing our team? With no clear wins left?
Hoke must make staff changes at the end of this year or ride and die with them next.
|45 weeks 9 hours ago||Not a fan of the offensive staff||
Hoke is loyal to his guys and will not make hasty decisions to placate the fanbase. Youth and inexperience are big factors here and they will be used to prevent any staff changes this year. If there is no improvement next year then you will probably see both Funk and Borges gone.
As for the rest of the year, I think Michigan will still win 2-3 more games. Nebraska and Northwestern seem very winnable still, as does Iowa. Nebraska's defense is terrible and their offense has issues with Martinez injured. Northwestern is in a tailspin. Iowa is Iowa but it is an away game in a hostile atmosphere, so that makes it a toss up. Ohio State is the most complete team we will face outside of Michigan State and we will lose.
8-4 or 9-3 is what I kinda expected over the summer before people started hyping Gardner and saying the offensive line would be better than last year. This is still a young team and may surprise us all next year.
|45 weeks 22 hours ago||9-3 overall||
Win out except for Ohio State.
|45 weeks 22 hours ago||Hoke doesn't care what you think||
Youth and inexperience will be the excuse through this season and the next. If no progress has been made at that point then you may see staff changes.
|50 weeks 6 days ago||No offense||
but if UConn is so great why are you guys in the AAC? Why did the Big Ten and ACC pass you over?
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Leach||
Leach does seem a little harsh this season, but his team is a massive disappointment and he was never the friendliest. I'm gonna chalk this up to a tough transition to an authoritarian coach unless some other evidence is brought forward.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||48-17, Michigan||
Someone may already have this, but I'm at work and can't go through 6 pages of comments.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||At least||
we're not going to lose by double digits.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||It's different||
Rugby players are, in my opinion, better overall atheletes. Everyone can run and hit and do it for long periods with no breaks. In football, you have guys who are stronger or faster but not often both and lack endurance.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||they should try||
an option play
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Can LSU do it?||
Can they join the field goal party?
|2 years 35 weeks ago||for real||
This may be the worst game of the year for me, and I watched Louiseville take on Kentucky.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Second strike||
You would think they would want to avoid media fallout from transfers, like what happened after the Aaron Douglas affair.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||lol||
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Am I the only one having||
Am I the only one having problems with the direct download? From the first week, I can only get about 80-90% of the file; like now I'm only getting 38.7 megs of the 58.4 my browser is showing. I've tried IE, firefox and chrome all with the same results.
|2 years 50 weeks ago||Vandy South Carolina||
There was an interception called for SC when it was clearly simultaneous possession and should have been vandy ball. They reviewed it and confirmed the call on the field. Drove my vandy fiancee mad.

|3 years 3 days ago||Still just a rumor||
But I'm marking the time, just in case we have to fill out a death report for the Big 12ish

First it was the rumor that Craig James killed 5 hookers at SMU, now it's 11? Let's put these heinous rumors to bed, like the bed Craig James is said to have used prior to killing 5 hookers at SMU. That did not happen and Craig James is totally innocent of killing 5 hookers while at SMU.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||To Quote Jerry Hinnen from CBSSports.com||
"It's not possible for Michigan to earn "revenge" against the Mountaineers. The former is one of the most storied programs in college football history. The latter is an FCS program (a good one, mind) that, if they're lucky, might land in Conference USA the next few seasons. 30 Michigan wins can't equal the impact of one of Appalachian State's, much less the single one they'll likely earn in 2012. To suggest the Wolverines can "even the score" with Appalachian State is to also suggest the two programs are somehow equals, peers."
|3 years 2 weeks ago||This is like the episode of South Park||
where the Red Wings demolish a pee wee team and go on to celebrate to We Are the Champions. Except that the pee wee team actually beat the Red Wings 7 years ago and everyone will be constantly reminded of this fact.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Not that it is easy||
but it probably will not kill you. As people reference below, muslims not at Fordson go through two-a-days with no food or water regularly. Heck, last year Husain Abdullah became a starter for the Vikings after fasting through training camp!
Again, not saying it is easy (I'm not sure I could sit at a desk all day without something) but it is something that can be worked through.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||According to Magnus||
at http://touchthebanner.blogspot.com/2011/01/eligibility-count-for-2011.html, we are currently at 24 for next year (75 players currently on scholorship and 14 player with only this year of eligibility remaining).
Someone correct me if I am not understanding this correctly.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||Scoreless tie||
and stadium collapse.
Let me elaborate on the /s
1. I don't really want a stadium collapse.
2. I know games can no longer end in a tie, but I think they would make an exception if the stadium collapsed.
3. I don't really care who wins.

Don't forget about the the one, the only, the truly incomparable Leland Stanford, Junior University Marching Band!
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Forgive me if I'm wrong||
but didn't Yost build Yost Fieldhouse as AD and Crisler build Crisler arena as AD? These guys may have started as football coaches, but their legacies as Athletic Director deserve to be comemorated as well.

This eases my pain.
