11/16/2018 - 2:14pm When people say "1st day"…

When people say "1st day" instead of "1st Rd" I assume they mean 2nd Rd which used to be 1st day until last year (or last 2 years?)

11/16/2018 - 1:37pm Can't stop watching that…

Can't stop watching that Haskins int because 1) trying to figure out what he's throwing at and 2) hoping he does that against us

11/15/2018 - 10:16pm I still don't have the…

I still don't have the ability to vote like I did with the old site. I also don't have the ability to create posts. Normally this wouldn't be a big deal but it's annoying to see users who have been banned and then created new accounts with more functionality than I have. 

Do I need to make a new account? 

11/15/2018 - 8:11pm Can you still sign to 88…

Can you still sign to 88 then get down to 85 by fall? Or did they get rid of that?

Brian's idea of a yearly cap instead of a total cap makes a lot of sense. Since they just changed the redshirt rule, hopefully they will consider that soon.

11/15/2018 - 12:22pm What I took from this FFFF,…

What I took from this FFFF, and included gifs, is we should throw deep against OSU a bunch. Their dbs struggled to keep up on vertical routes, and rarely seemed to get their heads around. Have to expect Shea to be more accurate with them than Ramsey. Maybe this explains all the deep shots against Rutgers.

11/14/2018 - 10:33pm The expectation from most…

The expectation from most here was conference championship and I think that's still the case. We know we can beat state. As for the tourney I think 2nd weekend still.  It's hard to expect any more because the offense can go really cold and general March craziness.

11/13/2018 - 10:30pm It won't surprise anyone if…

It won't surprise anyone if years from now we are finding out about a FIFA style bribery scheme from 1 or 2 conferences that inflated the ratings for their members. 

11/13/2018 - 12:46am Yeah I thought the tweet was…

Yeah I thought the tweet was going to be derogatory towards Zach and so the thread title was meant to bash the writer. 

11/11/2018 - 1:14pm Yeah I could not understand…

Yeah I could not understand why the announcers were harping on this point all game. There's a max of 5 games left, he can play in 2 more. I don't think you can expect any garbage time against osu or in the post season. If for some reason you need him, you don't want his first pass to be on the road at OSU. He needs game reps, if he really is better than Peters then screw the redshirt and play him in every game if you have to. It's not a huge deal. Milton looks like a freshman out there. Peters is better than him right now and I have confidence that Peters can beat Indiana and Northwestern.

11/06/2018 - 6:35pm Lots of stuff going on here…

Lots of stuff going on here. Post more often in smaller chunks so it's easier to digest, please. Also would help to constantly add to the side of people who stick up for Gary and others. Like Ive said it was obvious he wasn't pulling a Bosa. Also I don't get why everyone wants to jettison Peters so badly. He can win you a lot of games with this defense. 

The play of Evans this year has been pretty weird. We know he has the talent because he was so electric as a freshman. Maybe best RB on the team as a freshman. I think this year is just a case of Higdon sucking all the air out of the RB room as he tries to achieve his goals of breaking 1000 yds and going to the NFL. He will probably have a re-break-out year next year.

 

11/02/2018 - 10:52pm McShay said during the Iowa…

McShay said during the Iowa game that he had Stanley as the #3 qb...shows how weak the class is and that Shea (any player really) can easily make a move into the 1st round with a couple good games

11/02/2018 - 10:48pm I heard he didn't practice…

I heard he didn't practice all week. 

 

 

11/02/2018 - 10:42pm PSU does some things well…

PSU does some things well but Michigan is the more complete team in basically every facet of the game. The revenge tour thing has been talked about non stop, but Michigan beat the spread for MSU and Wisconsin so clearly the revenge tour means a lot to the players. 

Michigan has been able to use time of possession to grind everyone down. Even MSU and Wisconsin who try to use the same plan. PSU relying on big plays just means their defense will be on the field constantly. Not to mention for how "electric" their offense supposedly is they have not been able to pull away from mediocre teams. Look at App state, Indiana, Iowa, MSU...

Gary plays 5-10 snaps. Franklin calls a TO when he runs on the field for a 3rd down in the 1st quarter.

Tarik Black has 2 receptions

McCaffrey scores a TD

Michigan 38-13

11/01/2018 - 2:37pm Yeah I think the injury…

Yeah I think the injury thing was just a lame excuse like "you'll never beat us at full strength." Cause if anything, saying "he was injured, didn't practice, but we made him play anyway" just makes the coach look like an asshole. It was a bizarre thing for him to say when people are so sensitive to player safety concerns right now. 

11/01/2018 - 1:20pm Yeah...not sure how people…

Yeah...not sure how people have missed that. It's obvious from the first time you hear him. He's somewhere on the spectrum, you'll notice he always repeats himself two times, likely OCD. He calls every single day. And rick leach gives him shout outs. Seems like a kid that means well and loves Michigan football. 

10/30/2018 - 8:36pm No real insights here but I…

No real insights here but I get the impression that he does not have OC aspirations. He originally signed a 2 year deal to be an "offensive analyst" here, so thats a pretty big step back. And while, there may have been some sort of gentleman's agreement to eventually make him OL coach after Drevno left, that was not a given. That said he has a clause in his contract that allows him to leave for a head coaching job, so maybe he does want another shot?

10/28/2018 - 2:41am Overdrive is great for…

Overdrive is great for getting free audio books. One downside is that it's still a library service so sometimes certain books are "checked out" and you may have to several weeks to get a very popular book. Another is that you only have a few weeks to finish them before it goes back, so if the book is super long it may be difficult. But yes overall it's a better service because it's free.

10/28/2018 - 2:16am Radiolab is so over hyped…

Radiolab is so over hyped. They treat the audience like morons. Robert Krulwich is constantly like "OMG what!? The sky is blue? You don't say!"

 

10/27/2018 - 11:59am Exactly. I don't think Brohm…

Exactly. I don't think Brohm will leave this year. But there's no way he's at Purdue in 3 years. I can't see a scenario where Karlaftis finishes his career with Brohm as his head coach.

10/26/2018 - 10:38am Gray decommitting is over…

Gray decommitting is over blown. These rumors are the equivalent of all the board comments here talking about us flipping Dobbs and Brown. It's wishful thinking by the instate fans about local kids at a position of need. 

10/24/2018 - 10:15am Can someone with more time…

Can someone with more time than me go back to previous threads and call out all the shit posters calling Gary a bust and questioning his dedication to the team? The noise got loud enough his mom felt obligated to post so we should hold those idiots accountable.

Fwiw, I said in a previous thread that he wasn't pulling a Bosa and it was completely obvious from his actions: not dropping out, continued to practice.

10/22/2018 - 10:55pm Probably better to look at…

Probably better to look at it percentage wise. Those were very big classes so that breeds attrition. If you aren't the best at your position in your own class it's going to be hard to play. Also transfer rates are up across the country. It sucks cause when these guys commit and are at signing of the stars getting a lot of hype you want to see them contribute in some way. But it's just the way things are now.

10/22/2018 - 1:12pm The answer is no....and it's…

The answer is no....and it's obvious because if he were going to pull a Bosa then he would have dropped out of school by now. He isn't going to do that. He's going to continue to rehab and practice and try to come back. 

Also op the reason people are giving you shit about the thread is because it inevitably brings out a bunch of people who want to bash Gary, call him over rated, question his dedication, etc. 

10/21/2018 - 2:33pm We're in the east but yeah I…

We're in the east but yeah I said in the Wisconsin post game threads, their stats were very similar but Higdon was way more clutch getting key first downs. And he just pushed the #1 run d around, over 100 yards with no super long runs.

10/21/2018 - 1:06am Quick someone get Ron Utah…

Quick someone get Ron Utah to explain to OP why this thread it stupid.

PS the answer to your question is no. 

10/21/2018 - 12:59am This thought crossed my mind…

This thought crossed my mind as well. If we win the next 3 we are the B1G only shot at the playoffs. Don't think Delany wants to be left out again.

10/20/2018 - 11:54pm Higdon is the best RB in the…

Higdon is the best RB in the Big Ten. 

10/20/2018 - 5:58pm It started off real subtle…

It started off real subtle but the last paragraph is one giant "/s" that some people are obviously missing. Good job trolling the stupid media narrative about Harbaugh.

10/19/2018 - 7:29am What's crazy is that if Hoke…

What's crazy is that if Hoke didn't get fired he could be starting for us right now. Another example of how inept that staff was as identifying QBs.

10/18/2018 - 7:41pm Will be interesting to see…

Will be interesting to see how often they jet motion Davis. Probably a lot. This could get him matched up on a safety. 

10/18/2018 - 7:11pm You have a point for the…

You have a point for the Nebraska and Maryland offensive FFFF. But the Wisconsin d one was pretty optomistic and dismissive of Wisconsin. I don't think this is building up sparty at all. That's the most cyan circles on a non Rutgers team we've ever seen. I read this as they aren't very good and resort to a lot of gadget plays and throwing the ball up for grabs.

10/14/2018 - 12:58pm Higdon was better than…

Higdon was better than Taylor in this game. The stats are very similar and Taylor's are better, but Higdon kept picking up clutch first downs to sustain drives. Some of it was Chryst being dumb though. Taylor constantly fell forward to pick up chunks but his performance was nothing special. 

10/12/2018 - 2:31pm Is Harrison still taking an…

Is Harrison still taking an official for the Penn State game? I thought he wanted to see his 3 finalists all play each other. 

10/08/2018 - 2:21pm He was productive in hs and…

He was productive in hs and he's pretty good. Some guys are just gamers. Also he doesn't have to be the best wr on the team and can work in slowly. He's played in garbage time mostly. DPJ was forced into being the main wr after Crawford and McDoom regressed. Also our qbs, passing game, and offense are much better this year.

10/08/2018 - 1:03pm If you're pushing a kid out…

If you're pushing a kid out you just stop talking to him. You dont host him on an official visit. Schools can only host 56(?) official visitors per year, no point in burning one on a kid you're not interested in.

Edit: still very possible he told the OSU staff to promise him he'd be the only RB in the class and they said no.

10/05/2018 - 11:11pm Two really good points. Hard…

Two really good points. Hard to see former players bashing Bo or even Michigan if he's still alive. Also yeah what is going on with Carr. He should talk to his former players and set them straight. Or at least tell them to keep their complaints private.

10/05/2018 - 8:03pm Marcus Ray's comments are so…

Marcus Ray's comments are so ironic. He bitches about Michigan fans being full of themselves and stuck in the past. He acts like because he was part of the championship team that everyone should treat him like the GOAT. We get it dude, you used to be good. Quit bitching about everything and seeking attention. 

09/25/2018 - 9:09pm I believe he's calling him a…

I believe he's calling him a 3.5* because he's ranked 466, not 866 or 1066. The reason there's a need to differentiate is because assholes shit on a kid in his hello post. (See above). No one in this thread has said "his tape reminds me of David Reese" they said "his ranking reminds me of David Reese." Who is a starter at Florida...

09/24/2018 - 11:27pm MGoFilmClass: everyone go…

MGoFilmClass: everyone go watch a movie and tell us the symbolic parallels to Michigan's football season. 

09/22/2018 - 10:27pm Ian Stewart or Cornell…

Ian Stewart or Cornell Wheeler. 

09/22/2018 - 10:25pm Lol wut? Ever heard of…

Lol wut? Ever heard of freezing cold takes. Complaining on a blog about the staff taking Bell is a bitch move. Dudek should absolutely call people out, hell Ronnie Bell himself should call people out. But he won't cause he's above that shit.

09/22/2018 - 9:51pm If there was no jet motion…

If there was no jet motion and they just handed off for 2 yds up 40 would you still be mad? They weren't trying to fool anyone they were just trying to run the ball and go home

09/22/2018 - 9:45pm Yeah the thought process…

Yeah the thought process makes logical sense on the face: he missed 2 halves and Harbaugh always says the best way to get better at football is to play football.....but i mean yeah the rest of the backups were in and Hudson plays violently it was a risk 

09/22/2018 - 9:41pm Yeah the biggest problem…

Yeah the biggest problem with the refs is the lack of repercussions. If the NCAA cares about player safety why do they continue to let terrible refs get away with letting shit go, ie facemasks and head hunting by teams down a bunch. Force these refs to go back to division 2 until they improve.

09/22/2018 - 6:28pm Exactly. All week everyone…

Exactly. All week everyone was saying how if martinez started he was going to make Don Brown pay for his inability to adjust to mobile qbs. I get he wasn't 100% but Don Brown shut down Martinez and Scott Frost decisively today. 

09/21/2018 - 11:38pm I honestly never gave Penn…

I honestly never gave Penn State football much thought until the Sandusky bullshit came out. Then obviously I wanted their program to burn in hell. If anyone ever deserved the death penalty it's PSU. I didnt really think about them in relation to Michigan until the embarrassing loss last year. Because of that I'm actually watching and rooting for Illinois right now. 

So no they aren't a rival. Ive always thought their main B1G rivalry was MSU?

09/19/2018 - 9:33pm Does anyone know if he has…

Does anyone know if he has another unofficial planned to Penn State? If not that's another tea leave that bodes well for us.

09/18/2018 - 11:25pm Jabrill Peppers but fast!

Jabrill Peppers but fast!

Ambry Thomas but big!

Khaleke Hudson but with more interceptions!

09/18/2018 - 11:12pm Yeah the content is great…

Yeah the content is great but please stop the stupid autoplay videos on every article. It's really annoying. Also blackghandi is isiah hole?

09/15/2018 - 10:11pm I find the parallels between…

I find the parallels between Harbaugh and Frost pretty fascinating. Or at least the perceived parallels that the media is pushing, ie legendary QB coming home, had success elsewhere, historic program burned to the ground by prior coach, etc. Frost was the most hyped coach of the off season. I'd rather have Harbaugh and I don't think it's even close. I guess it's just my Michigan bias.
