East Lansing in 1985, we won 31-0 but still left about 17 points on the field with a missed field goal and two interceptions thrown by Harbaugh when we were going in for scores.
Still a nice win. A recap about this game in the Detroit News started with this...
"Spotting the University of Michigan two touchdowns is like giving Carl Lewis a 20-yard head start."
I miss the days of us being Carl Lewis. Today, we're more like a middle school kid running cross country but stopping every 30 feet to use our asthma inhalers.

George Perles' first year as head coach in East Lansing. He told the story of how he and Bo chatted before the start of this game at midfield. It started like this.
PERLES: I have to tell you Bo, I'm really nervous.
BO: You should be.

Maybe I need to stop watching college football other than Michigan.
All the teams I hate most keep winning. They play well. They're not like us with endless 1 yard gains on the ground. Their QB's have time to throw. They don't get burned in the secondary (to our levels) They don't make crappy teams look like BCS contenders.
Combine all that with the mess we're in and you have a whole lot of suck.

Stupid Notre Dame. If those f*ckers win, it's a day filled with the teams I despise winning.
Even a bye week gives the finger to a Michigan fan.

F*ck this. Why does ND look good so far?
|1 day 19 hours ago||Why the f*ck does OSU have to||
Why the f*ck does OSU have to thrive so much even after losing Braxton Miller??? Yeah, their schedule is weak but they're doing what you're supposed to do to crappy teams and their players improve from week to week.
I'm so sick of this same script. Michigan makes Ruters look like a national title contender (at least offensively) and OSU finishes them off in the 1st quarter and could easily win by 60.
God, not even a bye week can give me peace.
|5 days 3 hours ago||I will root for Rutgers even||
I will root for Rutgers even though I expect them to get pounded.
As for when we go to Columbus, I'm trying my best to avoid thinking about that at all costs. Because OSU's players actually improve while we...are currently in this hell.
Let's go on to less depressing subjects. Currently, this is probably the happiest us Michigan fans will be all season because last weekend's win combined with this weekend's bye week assures us of consecutive Saturdays with no pain....for the first time since October 2013.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Amen. I do kind of wonder||
I do kind of wonder how different the Minnesota game would have been had Gardner started. I know we were all frustrated with him at the time but Shane Morris was awful on epic proportions before he took the hit that started the madness.
Garnder is always going to turn the ball over much like Denard did, but the offense will still move better under him than Morris. We saw that as soon as he came into the game.

They're alright. Definitely the least hideous of all the alternates the team has worn. But nothing tops the traditional jersey.

Don't get me started on Notre Dame. They played four unranked teams to start the season and went from #19 all the way to #6.
Florida State better destroy them next week.

It's going to feel nice to go to sleep tonight and not have that feeling of throwing up.
Very proud of the players, especially that defense in the second half. Wow. Gardner showed a ton of heart. I just hope he's not injured worse than it looks.
Plus I've always despised Penn State, so this is pretty nice. GO BLUE.

Happy for Purdue but at the same time, damn. Even they play better than us.

Bo's reactions to players screwing up was pretty sweet. He'd get his anger and frustration out right away, as soon as the play finished. But he calmed down before the player reached the sideline and then had a talk with him that looked like a lecture but didn't look humiliating to the player, not like that asshole Brian Kelly.
Hoke is so calm that I think if a random stranger approached him on the street and screamed in his face, he'd just clap a few times and walk on. And he's probably been that way his whole life.
Although, if you watch any games from when Hoke was on the coaching staff under Carr, he actually did get animated once in a while on the sidelines and had expressions of disgust when a ref would make a bad call. So he is capable of getting mad, he just hasn't done it yet as a HC.
|1 week 6 days ago||Ever notice how often these||
Ever notice how often these miracle hail Mary's are almost always won by the road team? Doug Flutie and Boston College winning at Miami, Nick Saban's LSU team winning the Bluegrass miracle at Kentucky, Northwestern at Minnesota several years back, Kordell Stewart at the big house, ASU at USC.
In Michigan's case, I guess our game ending hail Mary would be Dresibach to Mercury Hayes against Virginia...although that would probably be a mini-hail Mary. We also had halftime hail Mary's, Demtrious Brown to Greg McMurtry against Iowa in '87 and Todd Collins to Amani Toomer against NC State in the 93 bowl game but those are never as exciting as game enders.
|2 weeks 1 hour ago||This team is agonizing to||
This team is agonizing to watch. Nobody would disagree with that. But the salt on the wound for me is continuing to see how happy we make our opponents. Whether its Notre Dame's defensive coordinator smiling and jumping around like a kid on the last day of school or Minnesota players hugging, high fiving and congratulating each other halfway through the 3rd quarter like the game is already over or the Rutgers players skipping and prancing to the sidelines once we've come up with another 3 and out...I'm just sick of it.
I'm tired of every opponent acting like its time for victory formation against us with 10 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. I hate it. I want to punch them but at the same time, I don't blame them.
|2 weeks 1 hour ago||Indeed. It's yet another sad||
Indeed. It's yet another sad thing that we've been reduced to. But we heard it long before this season even started. Over the summer, Hoke and the players kept making the comment that last years team was a few plays away from being 10-3 instead of 7-6.
When you go by that mentality and completely ignore how GOD awful you looked from game 3 to game 13, I guess we shouldn't be surprised when we now hear that wins/losses are just a statistic.
Florida fans may be in pain right now but I'd take their pain over...this..any day.
|2 weeks 2 hours ago||They beat one of their most||
They beat one of their most hated rivals and there's panic and anger in the air over how little they beat them by.
Cheer up, Florida. It could be worse. You could be Michigan and not be able to stay within 4 touchdowns of any of your rivals.

I wonder if this team could compete with the Northwestern teams from the 80's.

It seems like a big blur. How this program got so awful so fast and STILL can't do anything right 7 years later. It astounds me.
