U-Conn Game Open Thread

First road game, so 110.000 more of us in front of our tvs and computers. People who never found any tv coverage can probably head to the Liveblog for quick updates. Bounce back day. Go Blue!

Y'all are way too crazy about this. I live in Columbus and will get lots of crap and I'm not overreacting. Goodnight. Sad to see mgoblog turn into MLive.

I consider poor Threet and Sheridan semi-Michigan heroes for what they tried to do that year. They sucked it up and beat a good Minnesota team after being eliminated from bowl consideration. They played their hearts out in Happy Valley against the B1G champs. Not saying I have fond memories of that team, but they at least gave effort.

We are going to get prison raped in the B1G.  Michigan must hold the record for the amount of streaks that their opponents have broken on them.  Seems like 5 times a game I have to hear about "Well this X shitty team hasn't been able to do such and such for 10 years but they just did it".

It didn't work against Akron. It isn't working against UCON. Please try something different. Please show to the Michigan fans that you actually know football and know how to make adjustments at halftime.

Our OL and DL performance the past game and half (and arguably all season) is worse than anything we put out there in 2008. I've watched every game since 1995, and this is worst OL and DL I've ever seen at Michigan.

Playing at this level, there's not a winnable game left on the schedule.  These past two games are by far the worst teams we're going to play all year.  I'm not saying I predict we're gonna lose out, because I'd like to believe we'll eventually pull our heads out of our asses.  But Minnesota would beat UConn by double digits.  Indiana would have had an insurmountable lead on Akron by halftime.  We are playing like a bad FCS team.  How is this even possible?

i'd rather watch miley cyrus twerk than watch this.

i'd rather watch twilight on loop for the next week than watch this.

i'd rather have vegeta beat goku early in dragonball z than watch this.

Once you're shaken, thats it. He has comeback before but this is going the total wrong direction. The common theme with all our qb picks? Our qb coach. Borges. Time to hire a dedicated guy.

I'm sure I'll get negged for this, and I know I'm not thinking rationally right now, but still, I don't care.

Fire Darrell Funk. I don't care if the O-Line comes out and improves in the next half. This is a joke, and an embarrassment to Michigan Football when teams like Akron and UConn are completely thrashing your offense and looking like the damn Pittsburgh Steelers. These are the kinds of games that must make Jake Long, Steve Hutchinson and Jon Jansen vomit with rage.

If this is the type of product we're going to see on the field going forward, I really have to question Hoke's ability to coach. He's an amazing recruiter, no doubt, but the problems aren't going away. They're not even getting marginally better. They're getting worse.

Neg me all you want. Call me a shitty fan. I don't care. We're way too talented as a team to get pushed around by these fucking scrubs.

Regardless, our O-Line should not be so bad as to get pushed around and thrashed by the likes of UConn and Akron. Notre Dame, MSU, OSU, I'd absolutely get getting pushed around by. But these are two of the worst teams in America we've played the past two weeks, and they're completely kicking our asses on the line.

At this point, it's a coaching problem. You can't sit there and tell me with a straight face that UConn is out-talenting us. Fire Darrell Funk. This is an embarrassment.
