I’m right up there with the rest of the Michigan fans on this blog as far as loving Michigan...it’s football team specifically. But homer-ism, over-overconfidence, and cockiness is every bit as annoying as the overly negative side.

I know it’s hard for people to maintain objectivity through maize n blue goggles ... but as with everything, you have to look at our football team from many different angles.

We all want it to be the best. But let’s face it, it has a lot to prove before it’s considered elite. Just sayin’....

That being said...root like hell for your team. No matter what. Be graceful with victory and in defeat. No shame in either.

Our day will come...and we are probably one great QB away from it being here. Here’s to hoping!!

telling us that Harbaugh is God are the same people calling for his head, or calling the QB a loser and claiming that all is lost when you go down a TD in the first quarter. And--while politics may be rightly banned--everyone brings all their daily bile to bear on their team and their team's perceived enemies.

The MSU game is the most important game on the schedule next year. Just win that game above anything else. The Buckeye rivalry is cyclical. We go back and forth with them (the Ten Years War), we beat them for regularly for a while (the Cooper years), and now they have clobbered us for a (long) stretch. We'll be back against them, for sure. But MSU? That is unnatural. They never beat us on any regular or any other basis, just the once in a while thing. Give them credit, they've taken full advantage of our down period. But enough is enough.

As has mine...not for the players, at least for the most part.

 

For the Sparty fans who ridicule Michigan at every opportunity, the Vengeance of Harbaugh and a fully weaponized U-M program cannot come soon enough. It's a matter of time. It may be as early as next season, if the offense can get its shit together and start making plays when it counts.

Don't get me wrong - I can't stand OSU, but I used to support MSU when they weren't playing UM.  However, the last time I can remember feeling like I supported them was the 2012 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl when they beat TCU 17-16.  Since then, the behavior of their fans, and Dantonio and their coaching staff, just makes me really fucking pissed off at times.  The hypocrisy of claiming victimhood and simultaneously bragging about the success of their program makes me sick.

 

Whoo... I feel better.  On to the Feats of Strength!

Oops, double post.

another greivance:

 

SHITTY BIG TEN OFFICIATING. 

I would like to punch that official who gave Ohio State the spot on 4th and 1 in the 2016 game. 

 

That guy...that guy was a homer and needs to never officiate another Big Ten game again, period.

My hatred of MSU will grow exponentially when the NCAA finally puts two thoughts together and realizes that MSU overperforms for the UM game every year in comparison to their other games, surprise drug tests their team at the game, finds short term drug enhancements, investigates and finds it a long term trend through interviews.

On such an important, gamechanging play you don't give it to them on a "maybe." A firstdown, in that instance, should be clearly earned. If the tables were turned, although I would have been happy, I wouldn't have felt great about being given the gift of a game winning call.

for taking away a 1st down on a maybe, couldn’t it? I mean there were 2 teams on the field that day. Everyone focuses on that one play. It looked like UM’s DL was gassed midway 4th qtr. Speights fumble on the goal line, the pick 6, Harbaugh’s 15 yard penalty extending OSU’s drive, not going for it on 4th down on OSU’s side of the field. etc etc. BTW merry Xmas everyone.

Heard him on Detroit radio. He doesn't want Harbaugh fired. Doesn't say Harbaugh is a bad coach. He says Harbaugh has to be better. That 1-5 against MSU and OSU is falling way short. I am not wavering in my support of Harbaugh but Toomer is right. And I believe if we asked Harbaugh he would agree as well.

But instead of actually listening to Toomer we would rather dump invective on him, read him out of the family and ship him off to Bolivia.
