We made mistakes but the refs completely fucked this game for us.

You're blaming the refs?!?! how about denard missing a wide open roundtree to go up 7-0, then fumbling next drive in the red zone when it was 0-0. How about Roundtree not being able to catch a ball when theres a defender anywhere near him.

I thought it was all Greg Robinson's fault? This offense has been terrible in every big game; give me a break. Bring on a new coach!

Ignoring that the team has been a national joke for 3 years doesn't make you a better fan. Blindly supporting Rich Rod doesn't make you a better fan either. Guess what, fumbles and penalties go back to coaching. Anyone who knows anything about football will tell you that.

If you honestly believe that the small community of mgoblog who believes Rich Rod is doing a good job is right compared to the entire slew of football experts across the country who acknowledge he is doing a poor job, then it is you sir who is ignorant and a moron.

Fans like you are the reason Michigan fans were voted most ignorant in a poll of fans across the country.

Oh and please neg me

Not saying the refs have been fair, but Roundtree caught those passes all season. Just because he drops them now doesn't mean they are blown interference calls. The D got there a split second early, but that is just good coaching. Unlike our coaching. Hey Vincent Smith, run right into a wall! RUN A SCREEN!! He will SCORE!! (sorry, really frustrated.)

What about all the drops on catchable balls and Drob's ball security on the first drive?

This game could easily be 21-24 right now if Michigan had made 4 more catches and Drob hadn't fumbled.

Are we going to start blaming losses on the officials?  That sounds like Penn State fans, not Michigan fans.

Quit beating ourselves and this game is completely different.  Officiating is just the cherry on top.

Yards is all that matters and we've got LOTS of them!

This friggin crap about yards and offense is ridiculous. The reason the last three years have sucked is because 150 lb RB and QB carry the ball and get the ball dislodged by bigger athletes.

Commence your NEG BANGS!

we have fucked ourselves. But the refs have screwed us a couple of times.  Even the announcers have called them out at least twice.  Both of which would have resulted in continued drives.

I'm quitting the internet.  No more TV, I want to stay the hell away from the Midwest except for Ann Arbor.  This sucks.

Forget it.  If he goes, he goes.  He's a good coach, but maybe just not the right man for Michigan.  I also blame God and the universe, karma, etc.  How is this fair?  We haven't had any miracles.  I hoped that today would bring redemption for RR, but instead people now have a stronger case against him.  Not just a close loss, but we're getting destroyed in a game I sincerely thought we could win.

And what makes it worse is that there are things that aren't RR's fault.  It's not his fault that Troy Woolfolk got injured for the season, that his highly rated kicker hasn't panned out.  He stuck to his principles and suspended Hagerup, and we're completely fucked without him.  And when I look at the problems with the defense, I see problems chalked up to a few mistakes whose ramifications have been incredibly severe.
