What will get "their" attention is if fat cat contributors start holding out on the rivers of alumni contributions coming into UM. That, and maybe a few sub 100k attendance home games.Regrettably, it all comes down to money.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||For some reason, the Utah loss needs to be listed||
I have just received an email from a relative who never emailed me before, who felt compelled to include a .jpg of an article by a Columbus sportswriter claiming that Michigan really was never any good. So I guess I you could say the Utah loss is bringing my family closer together.
The Utah loss hurts because it means that the rest of the season is likely going to suck, and that we will go into every game wondering if we possibly can win, no matter how bad the opponent is.
It also means that whatever concatenation of infirmities afflicted the team last season still exists in some form.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||If Hoke love Michigan as much as he claims he does||
He should resign. It's in the best interest of the team.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Can anyone on this thread||
Imagine that Hoke would do anything else? Especially after the video was released. York probably will get convicted, but may be able to plead down to a misdemeanor assault or some such if it's his first offense. Either way, I can't see Hoke having someone with an assault record on the team. And yes, I hope York turns it around.

I have it on VERY good authority (parent of fellow player on team) that Shaun's decommitment decision might well have been mutual. Not a secret in Cleveland (it was in Cleveland papers) that he was suspended temporarily from the team, as well as from the school. I know and won't say in this forum, but it was for something a lot worse than a late book report. Also, very frustrating to his teammates because he got called for taunting several times (@ 15 yards per) during games. Would not have lasted at UM long enough to contribute, IMO. I wish him well, and hope he cleans up his act.
|45 weeks 5 days ago||"Definition of Insanity"||
Is also the definition of what it means to be a sports fan. It also could apply to anyone who uses computers, where in my experience one actually does get different results by doing the same thing over and over.
Also, try not to focus too much on standings, and more on the beauty of a well-executed play, or a player who is "on fire" for a game o a few plays, or a player who I has reached the next level of ability. Works for me.
|1 year 2 days ago||If you don't think something is wrong here||
with the inordinate number of ACL injuries, download a sports app that lists injured players for each team and compare UM to other B1G teams. Michigan has - Darboh, Johnson, Pipkins, Burzynski, Bellomy (who doesn't even get listed), and Ryan (who's back) - for a total of 6.
The other B1G teams (I am listing when the app states "knee" as the cause of injury), according to the sports app::
MSU has - Jones
OSU has - none
NW has - Jones
Iowa - None
Nebraska - Williams, Long
Iowa - None
PSU - Lehman
IND - None
This is not random distribution, IMO. UM shold have 2, or 3 tops to be in the pack. Can this imbalance really be attributed to bad luck, player phenotypes, or the field surface? I don't think so. Someone would have to look at the program from top to bottom to find out.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||I was in Vegas||
Staying at the MGM Grand. I had money on that game. Never thought they'd pull it out.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||I'll take any positive stat I can get, but||
We're not exactly in elite company.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||You don't have to go back that far.||
Last season we played three teams that went undefeated for the season - and two played for the MNC. That doesn't take away the angst we are feeling heading into the conference part of the schedule. Also, we actually looked good against our first two opponents, which makes the seeming collapse all the more painful. I have tickets to the Minnie game. I wasn't expecting a nailbiter, but I am now.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||So if the box was stacked,||
That would mean single coverage for one or more receivers, right? But Gardner's passing stats were bad, and time after time he would run around the backfield looking for an open receiver, I presume. So can't Gardner look off receivers, or was U Conn's secondary that good?
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Devin looked rattled after the first TO||
We probably had more rushing yards than passing yards tonight. Was it because Devin got no protection or because the receivers were all covered, or because Devin was reluctant to throw?
|1 year 4 weeks ago||This is painful to watch,||
even if you don't like MSU
|1 year 4 weeks ago||OK, who had ND 17-13?||
ND favored by ~5 at gametime.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Actually, that's what this blog is for.||
It's in the EULA.

|1 year 4 weeks ago||I can't help but feel a twinge of loss||
every time the announcer mentions "Dennard" (sp?)
|1 year 4 weeks ago||MSU keeping it on the ground and brutalizing||
|1 year 4 weeks ago||If Akron would beat them by 50, then||
UM would beat them by 54? Just kidding.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||So, is Ohio really that good, or||
is whoever they played really, really that bad?
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Agreed. I hope Funchess and/or Chesson||
can do that - they have the reach/height.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||I guess we should be rooting for ND to beat MSU, but||
every time I see Kelly I want ND to get hammered.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||And here comes that insipid||
ND fight song.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||How many times do they have to replay that stupid||
10-10 tie? Shows how boring this game is.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||I am reminded of Kissinger's observation of the||
Iran-Iraq war - "It's a pity one of them has to win."
|1 year 4 weeks ago||ND will PI its way to a TD||
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Devin made some bad choices, but||
He won the game for us with his arm and legs. trouble was, Zips were double and triple teaming Gallon, and Gardner wasn't getting protection, at all in some cases. He needs to go through his progressions better/faster. Assuming they weren't being smothered as well. You know double teaming Gallon's going to happen next week. Fitz didn't look too bad, when he had help getting past the LOS. He can't run over players. Never will.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||At the time, we had||
Two yakety sax QBs for that game. I drove a neighbor up from Dayton and told him (jokingly at the time) that he could be witnessing history that afternoon - Michigan losing to a MAC school for the first time. I didn't know how prescient I was.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||"should I say, none of them have caught a pass..."||
No, you should say "none of them HAS caught a pass..." None is singular. This is, after all, a Michigan blog, fergodsakes.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||OK, when I saw the above photo,||
I was instantly reminded of McKayla Maroney. Was Beilein doing his impression of her?
