02/10/2018 - 11:02am Brian’s nihilistic response to the bowl game was a turning point

For me. I’ve pretty much checked out of this place since then. It is hard to have interest in a blog that doesn’t have interest in writing about the very thing the blog is dedicated to.

01/02/2018 - 11:45am Ok, cool

I guess I'll just take the same approach to reading your blog.  

01/01/2018 - 11:10pm How the fuck is that supposed to make us feel better?

In 2006 we lost our last two games, and our most important games and then set upon one of the worst decades of Michigan football ever.

01/01/2018 - 7:12pm 4 losses at a minimum

Same overrated and thoroughly mediocre coaching staff with zero reliable OTs nd a brutal schedule. 5 losses wouldn’t shock me at all.

01/01/2018 - 6:56pm Yup. There will be a minimum of 4 losses next year and 5 seems

More likely than 3. We likely have the same coaching staff with the same problems on O even if Patterson is eligible, plus the schedule is BRUTAL.

01/01/2018 - 11:02am What did he say that was

Wrong?

12/31/2017 - 9:36am Another miss for OT

Recruiting

12/30/2017 - 12:42am I’ll boycott you instead

Lighten up Francis.

12/28/2017 - 10:00pm Massive holding by Sparty

And of course it doesn’t get called

12/22/2017 - 12:13pm That would definitely change my view of the class

Hope that all happens but I have my doubts.

12/20/2017 - 9:10pm That would be great but

Not at all likely.

12/20/2017 - 9:22am Too bad

he's not a DT.

12/20/2017 - 9:20am We were not one of the top 5 teams last year

We were barely top 10.  Perhaps you conveniently forgot we lost three of our last four games?

12/20/2017 - 7:38am Can’t miss but they likely will

We are competing against OSU and Bama. We are the clear outlier

12/19/2017 - 10:32am Well if you can’t beat Sparty then recruit like them

if you look at Rivals we have remarkably similar classes.  I'm not sure if that is good or bad.  

12/19/2017 - 10:28am There is an almost zero percent chance

we end up ranked in the top 15.  Many of the top players are still uncommitted and none will likely be committing to us so most of the other classes around us will be moving up.  

12/18/2017 - 11:42pm Also misleading because this class won’t finish in the top 15

It may well not even finish top 20.

12/18/2017 - 11:40pm We are also behind Sparty on Rivals

And not too far ahead of them on 247. Man those 3-9 jokes seem like aeons ago

12/18/2017 - 4:52pm I think they go 11-7 in conference play

and win at least one game in the B1G tourney.  Which should put them at 22-24 wins and between an 8 and 10 seed depending on who they beat.

At the moment I don't know if they have even beaten a single tourney team yet.  VCU, Texas and UCLA are all suspect so far.    

12/17/2017 - 10:04pm That was a ridiculous call

That was a catch all day long and again on Sunday. Replay has gone way out of control. The only reason the ball moved is because he reached out over the goal line. The receiver had full control and made a football move. So stupid.

12/16/2017 - 11:58pm Yup. That loss killed a lot of faith I had in this staff

Including Harbaugh. Subpar play calling, scheme, personnel usage and development all on display in one giant shit sandwich of a game.

12/16/2017 - 11:56pm It won’t be a top 15 class after signing day

More like 20-30. It’s a Spartan-esque class IMO

12/16/2017 - 11:51pm Two?!?

We have at least three huge question marks on the offensive line alone.

12/16/2017 - 11:49pm No kidding.

Shouldn’t he be more worried about our super lackluster recruiting class instead?

12/16/2017 - 11:45pm Not this year there isnt

Our class is far closer to MSU than OSU. In fact, Sparty has a better class than us currently on some sites.

12/16/2017 - 5:14pm Username checks out

As does the avatar. Well done!

12/16/2017 - 3:49pm It’s sad to see UDM that bad

It would be really cool for the city if they could build a quality hoops program, but they seem pretty far off at the moment.

As for Michigan this was a nice game to watch some players break out of funks and get some PT for the bench.

12/16/2017 - 2:09pm All your three starz belong to us

Maybe they decided they need to recruit like MSU to actually beat MSU.

12/14/2017 - 3:07pm Just another highly rated dude who

isn't coming to Michigan.  Nothing to see here.  

 

More troubling is that we may be losing Tyler Friday as well.  The OL and DL recruiting this year has fallen off a cliff.  

12/14/2017 - 9:04am Nothing to be proud of Russ

Blech. What a crappy stat.

12/10/2017 - 11:09am Paragraphs might help but I agree with your basic point

They should have done a true rebuild starting five years ago. Holland stupidly and stubbornly clinged to a meaningless playoff streak as some sort of sign that the team was healthy and competitive when it was anything but. Now they have some of the worst contract in the league and the exact opposite approach you need in the front office to build a true Cup contender.

12/09/2017 - 2:52pm Can’t believe they won

That was awesome! Great atmosphere at Crisler.

12/09/2017 - 9:37am I call bullshit on the

He’d be a top 100 recruit if he were in a big city bit. Kids all over the country are scouted heavily by the services. He’s an okay prospect but no way he’s a top 100 kid.

12/07/2017 - 10:09am Your link says he is a 3 star OT

#513 player overall and #39 rated OT with just an okay offer list.   

So he's not a highly ranked guy, but we probably aren't in a position to turn away quality OT prospects.  

12/06/2017 - 10:25am Playoffs?!?
12/05/2017 - 10:32pm Would be a great pickup

But unless the OL play improves drastically he will be running for his life.

12/04/2017 - 10:28pm Because JB didn’t recruit well enough

For there to be a viable replacement at this point.

12/04/2017 - 10:24pm Nope. Duncan has no business being a starter

But that is what three years of recruiting misses will do to you.

12/04/2017 - 9:30pm Good lord that’s bad

Where were the substitutions to try and get the young guys back in when it was clear the vets didn’t have it?

12/04/2017 - 9:28pm This game perfectly encapsulates JBs recruiting flaws

Duncan should not be our starting 4 under any circumstances. Even with DJ leaving early that should not happen.

Of course we failed to bring in a guy like Kyle Young who we were in on but we appeared to prefer other guys at the 4 and/or we lost the recruiting battle to both Butler and OSU. How good would Young look as our starting 4 right now?

12/04/2017 - 9:20pm I can’t wait to hear how

We are on the right track!

12/04/2017 - 8:28pm This collapse is on JB as much as the players

Terrible subbing or lack there of.

12/04/2017 - 8:22pm Mo is absolutely

Shitting the bed.

12/04/2017 - 7:59pm Game over.

They blew it when they gave up a 7-0 run at the end of the half.

12/04/2017 - 7:56pm Kyle Young killing us

He was the one guy I wanted in last years class

12/04/2017 - 7:20pm How the fuck is a 5 point play even possible?

Simmons needs to stay on the bench.

12/04/2017 - 5:29pm Do you follow results on the field?!?

Who gives a fuck if we “win” the recruiting battle when they have owned us on the field for the last decade. The fanbase denial continues.

12/04/2017 - 10:23am Yea and by that logic, Indiana is right there with us

given the close games the last 3 years.  

12/02/2017 - 3:03pm Bullshit

No way that’s true

12/01/2017 - 10:39am And of course the NCAA

fails to do anything meaninful at all.  What a joke.  Cheating pays again.
