I know how hard this game is to watch right now and trust me, I have a hole in my wall right now after throwing my remote away after Iowas TD...but for people to blame RR is completely ridiculuous...can we actually look back and see what might cost us this game...


Okay, back to the game....

1. Denards poor decision which cost us a pick.

2. Vince's fumble

3. Lewan, etc. penalties

4. Secondary.

5. ridiculuous kickoff after 28-14.

etc. etc.

This was (and I hate when RR says this after we lose games but) it is just shitty execution. Our players just don't look in sync, I don't see the passion in their eyes, and I see RR beating himself up over petty mistakes that are costing us this game. RR is a great coach, and this is 100x harder for him to watch his players crap up plays than us. Look at it this way, even if we lose, we were still expecting to come out 5-2 after the first 7 games and guess what, we are gonna be 5-2 after 7 games.

I still have faith in my team, my coach, and my program to come back and change things around...

The way the offense has looked in the last 10 or 20 minutes...this game amazingly isn't over

Just a quick TD, defensive stop, another TD...tie game...


I also don't think it's RR's's not his fault the defense is so bad

I will help fuel the positivity train. How about Demens? Didn't he play really well? So at least in this hell hole of a game it looks like we found a MLB. I thought he has played consistenly well and made more plays in this game than Ezeh has all year.

I think what this season has shown me is this offense is unstoppable when it clicks. However, it can stop itself very easily.
<br>Our turnovers are also critical with our poor D, it's essentially a 14 point swing each time.

This is meant with the most honest intentions, but do you think it is unreasonable to assume that repeatedly bad execution has anything to do with coaching?  Conversly, I do beleive that good execution does stem from good coaching, so does the reverse hold true?

There's a linebacker on Michigan. I don't know his name because he never gets called for making the tackle. Obi?? Something like that.

Over and over again he ran INTO the pile of blockers instead of running to the hole. Michigan might have won this game except for the wide open holes all because the mystery man wanted to play doggie pile.

When do we stop blaming the players?  When does the coaching staff start taking blame?  When do we learn how to tackle?  When does the coaching staff call plays to put the defense in he right position?  I have supported RichRod since day 1 and I am on the fence today, but I think it is time to start asking whether he is the right coach for Michigan.

I can't say I'm that upset over the loss...sure it was frustrating with all the turnovers, kicking, ect. but two losses to 2 top 15+ teams doesn't seem all that bad to me considering the preseason expectations.

I came into this season expecting about 8-4, and that's what we look like as a team.  I think we'll be about 8 and 4.  We lost a bad one today, lost a bad one last week, but I;m happy with our team losing on young mistakes.  We've lost to two teams that we expected to lose to at the beginning of the year, though losing to MSU sucks. i feel happy about the position we're at.

Do we have a quarterback controversy? Hey, none of the team or coaches ever gave up. Did you see Tate rally the troops on the sideline? Much better than hiding under a towel at the end of the UConn game. Go Blue!

People who don't see the improvement of this team are kidding themselves.  I understand the ups and downs of a college football season, and that is a big part of why we love it so much, but to judge an entire coaching staff based on losing a game that we,"were supposed to lose" is silly.
