10/21/2017 - 11:03pm The team looked overwhelmed

The team looked overwhelmed and lost in most aspects of the game. The offensive struggles don't seem to be getting better, and the defense appears to be regressing. I can't really figure out why Harbaugh can't seem to get control of things even after two years of his recruits.

Yes. Win the game. Then we don't need to have this discussion.

11/28/2016 - 10:56am I've never really understand

I've never really understand why they didn't just go with 8 teams from the outset. Gaurantee a spot to each of the five power conference championships, then have 3 at large spots, filled by the three highest ranked non-conference champions. You could have a provision to allow a spot for a non power-conference team that ranked high enough. If you're not in the top eight, or a conference champion, you don't really have that great of an argument to make the field. But restricting the playoff to only four teams is pretty limiting, especially with humans making the selection.

I'm waiting for the stand-alone movie that follows the engineering firm that keeps pitching those giant planet destroying space stations to the Imperials. They must be making a fortune designing and building those things time and time again.

Good old Myron Medcalf. I remember last year he expected Michigan to lose in the opener to South Dakota State, then throughout the tournament kept picking Michigan's opponents to win. From his record I'm not sure he even knows what sport basketball is, let alone has ever watched a game of it.

Sucks but isn't the end of the world; he's just one player in a team sport.  Can hardly blame him for going to a team with so much recent success.  Wish him luck in his career.  Go Blue!

Abandoning Ohio for a week and heading to the UP!  Can finally wear all my Michigan stuff without having to constantly hear crap from Ohio State fans.

That was the first thing he did in college!  And then he picked it up and ran it in for a touchdown.  The Jags should try to get him to fumble MORE.

According to the movie 300, Spartans live around a bottomless pit; that's what Leonidas kicks that dude into while shouting "This is Sparta!" 

The analogy was decent, but not completely accurate.  In real life, the Spartans LIVE in the bottomless pit of East Lansing, not just around it.

07/30/2013 - 3:51pm I suppose if you're limiting

I suppose if you're limiting it to a team we play every year, it'd have to be from our Division.  I can't imagine we'll ever be playing The Game at night, so by default it would have to be Penn State, since they're the only other big opponent beyond State and the Buckeyes that we will play annually.  It'd probably be more fun to change it up every once and a while depending on who we're playing rather than pick one opponent that always plays in the Big House after dark.

On an unrelated note, when you log in, does the password request screen say "You shall not pass!" or does it only say that when you input the wrong password?

That's a mighty lot of mathematical symbols and letters for people who "ain't come to play school."  Pictures might be easier for Buckeye players to understand.

07/25/2013 - 10:34am "Gardner's workout habits

"Gardner's workout habits this spring and summer seek to emulate the elder Manning brother's offseason regime. "We've been throwing every chance we get. Everybody has different class schedules, so I'll come in two or three times a day to get all the receivers in. A lot of people finally understand that every year we've just been so close, we just missed our chance to get the Big Ten championship.""

It's awesome to hear how hard the team is working to get ready for the season before official practices begin.  Every day I get more excited for this team to hit the field next month!

Glad to see Oakland was proactive on this issue by hiring Terrelle Pryor!

And hopefully trending towards the former, since most of our toughest opponents have to come to Ann Arbor this year!

Mattison will have the defense ready to play, and if the young players on the O-Line can learn quickly I think there is a lot to be optimistic about for this year.

That was my thought as well, although there's a good chance that it will cut down on the number of people fighting with you for those good deals.

Eh, I used to care about this, but then I realized I don't care what they wear as long as they win games and stomp our rivals.

Would any of you really care if they wore clown outfits and wigs en route to beating Ohio State or winning a national championship?  I wouldn't.

Does this mean their series against the Little Sisters of the Poor isn't going to happen now?

03/11/2013 - 12:22pm Beilein has never struck me

Beilein has never struck me as anything but a class act.  Obviously I'm seeing him through maize-colored glasses as "our coach," but I don't think I've ever seen him do anything that struck me as unsportsmanlike.  At most, I've see him get frustrated with his own players or maybe a call by the officials, but never jawing with other teams' players, pouting about a loss or rubbing a victory in an opposing coach's face.  Maybe I've missed something over the years, but I'm proud that Michigan has a coach who obviously cares about his team and the University but doesn't let emotions get the best of him.

As for Crean, I always thought he had done a great job at Indiana rebuilding their program without ever really doing anything which reflected negatively on him or Indiana.  After seeing what he did after yesterday's game, my opinion of him dropped through the floor, and it sounds like from what some of you guys are saying it isn't his first time acting like this.  Nothing wrong with celebrating a big victory or your team's success, but you don't need to act like a spoiled brat while doing it.  The players I can understand - they're college kids, and no one is expecting them to be above getting caught up in emotion, but as a coach I think you ought to hold yourself to a higher standard.  Crean obviously doesn't, which is too bad. 

03/01/2013 - 10:43am One would think Coach K would

One would think Coach K would know the easiest way to avoid being caught up when opposing team's fans rush the court: don't lose! Of course, its much more satisfying for the rest of us when he doesn't follow that advice.

That being said, if you're dumb enough to get in an opposing team's player or coach's face, you deserve to get smacked.

02/22/2013 - 1:20pm Sure, that's the moral of the

Sure, that's the moral of the story, but Wojo didn't tell the story right.  He says that in order to succeed that the gazelle has to be faster than "the fastest gazelle" instead of the fastest lion, and that the lion has to be faster than than "the fastest lion" instead of the slowest gazelle, it doesn't make much sense.

I understood what he was saying as it applies to the team; we've all heard that story before. I was just making light of the fact that he mixed up the story, that's all.  Doesn't change the fact that it was a pretty good article.

02/22/2013 - 9:29am Good article, but...

"Back on the screen, there was a brief tale of the gazelle and the lion. Beilein read it aloud, that the gazelle must run faster than the fastest gazelle, or it will be killed. And the lion must run faster than the fastest lion, or it will starve."

Good article, and it really shows the passion Beilein has for his program, but if that's the analogy the players are relying on, it might explain why they've looked so confused on the floor recently...

01/31/2013 - 10:29am "When Everyone Operates In-Sync."

At least according to this Scout thread.

"So, here is answer to all the questions about what is "We On." It is the team slogan for the season created by the staff and players. It stands for 'When Everyone Operates In-Sync.' In addition, we created a U-M fuse box in the locker room in which each player has a key word they focus on during the season. Each player flips their switch "on" before every practice and every game. So, there you have it. Go Blue! We On!"

No idea if that's accurate or not, of course.  I DO know that the MDen appears to be "sold out" of all "WE ON" shirts, sadly...

08/29/2012 - 8:36am Sweet - thanks Six Zero! 

Sweet - thanks Six Zero!  Great work as always.  Going on my desktop right now to annoy all my OSU fan coworkers.


Somebody ought to put together a wallpaper of Denard as Moses (Or Moses in a #16 jersey) parting the Red Sea.  Seems appropriate.

I can't see a volcano from my office window (although I can see the refinery from co-workers' windows). Frankly, a volcano in Toledo would be pretty awesome...a major improvement to say the least.

05/08/2012 - 9:20am How is David Cone not a lock

How is David Cone not a lock for recognition?


But seriously, the obvious ones are Harmon and Woodson.  I don't think Denard, as great as he is, has had an accomplished enough of a career to warrant recognition (absent winning the Heisman this year).  Probably no need to consider anyone who has had their number retired, either, since that's a greater achievement than having a patch sewn onto a jersey in your honor.

07/29/2009 - 3:53pm Multiple QBs

Wait, we potentially have MULTIPLE quarterbacks who could win games? I'd be happy just to find ONE QB who can win games for us. Heck, I'll be happy if Tate comes out and doesn't fumble every other snap, just so I don't have flashbacks to last year.

Now Stevie Brown, on the other hand...I fully expect him to win games for us all by himself...

07/04/2009 - 4:09pm Agree

I agree. Do you really think Pete Carrol frets over whether he's getting more good people from California than UCLA? Probably not, since USC is a program that seeks the best players nationally. If they're from Michigan, all the better. But if Michigan is bringing in the best recruits nationally and Michigan State cleans up on second-tier talent in-state, who ends up winning where it counts? It seems sort of dumb to make assumptions on how good a class is based on some invisible, arbitrary lines drawn on a map to determine how good a school's football recruiting is.

Go Blue!

07/01/2009 - 2:25pm Website is a Piece of Junk

I'm glad someone managed to place an order. I've tried 4 times to place an order yet when I enter my credit card info and tell it to confirm the order I get the same error message I did most of the time I clicked something last night. Although the site claims no order was placed, it doesn't give me much confidence to trust it.

I think I'll stick with the M Den for the time being. This new site has me pissed off for the moment. I'll wait till they work out the bugs.

06/22/2009 - 6:55am Punters can be a terrific

Punters can be a terrific weapon. Especially when they're playing on the other team and kick to Michigan, whereupon we invariably fumble. Its like a free 50 yards!

We need to coat Odom's gloves with glue...

04/28/2009 - 5:52pm Double-header

Maybe it will be a double-header like they did a couple times back in the early days.

Appalachian State AND Toledo, same day!

04/15/2009 - 10:11am Yes.

Actually, it'll be a Youngstown State player.

03/26/2009 - 1:14pm David Cone

I'm still pulling for David Cone to lead the team this year.

I mean, he's been around for forever, taking all this time to get ready to lead Michigan to their first National Championship in a decade.

This is going to be his breakout year.

Unless he sticks around till next year. Or the year after that.

03/19/2009 - 9:53pm We did it!

Or at least our basketball team did.

But I have no doubt the Wolverine faithful (especially this blog's readers and contributors) had some small part.


03/03/2009 - 10:42am This year's starter!

He is definitely my pick to be Michigan's starter this year.

Please, please, please, no Nick Sheridan.
