Hasn't been a undefeated team since IU. Only a blind homer would ever think his team had a shot to go undefeated.Was that sarcasm or were you serious?

03/02/2019 - 6:41am Happens all the time in the…

Happens all the time in the NFL, guys  under perform in college sometimes. But once they concentrate on just their football careers some find their potential/ceiling. Tom Brady comes to mind,chad johnson was a wr in a  option offense. Maybe a coaching change hinders their development. That's why they have the combine, and every year there are a couple players that come out of nowhere. And a lot of it is because of the 40. GM's just love a good 40 time. 

02/28/2019 - 7:47am Don't they have the kid from…

Don't they have the kid from Ohio, a true freshman wr from last year? One of many that'll come back to haunt Urban Meyer,AD, osu athletic department. 

I take it no one has a problem with Harbaugh relying on others to develop the most important position on your team, the QB. You would think a coach would want his finger prints all over the 1 position you want to be the program identifier so to speak?

02/28/2019 - 6:08am Ok, so that's the From Home …

Ok, so that's the From Home "Go To", how about your "Outside,Go To", ? I love Caribbean & Jamaican. My go to is jerk pork over rice & peas. Most of the time it doubles as my dinner in the evening as well.I figure, if I gotta spend $8 bucks for lunch might as well spend it on real food versus McDonald's, $8's gets  you a happy meal with faux hamburger patyy's, that greenish meat-ish, ask Maxine if thats a word?

Your typical lunch meat, ham,bologna,capicola. I also love liverwurst with raw onion and a spicey mustard.

Now its the pass rush and a obvious a coaching conspiracy. How else do you explain the #1 Defense giving up 55 points to an average team? All we been hearing is UM needed a QB the last 2 years. Just a QB with a pulse they said. 

02/14/2019 - 6:17am Even the GOAT, Tom Brady…

Even the GOAT, Tom Brady doesn't look nearly as good when pressured. I laugh every time they say that about Haskin's under pressure. No shit, thanks for that revelation. 

Where the pressure comes from makes a big difference. If the pressure comes up the middle it pretty much blows up the play. Haskins definitely improved on his pocket presence by the "Game", he did a nice job stepping up in the pocket vs UM and actually picked up 2 first downs with his feet. Like he had eyes in the back of his head. My point is all QB's look different under pressure.

Oscar, #1 Patterson knew Ole Miss was under investigation when he signed, plus his brother was an assistant coach .

02/09/2019 - 8:38am Swazi,

Swazi,

Ole Miss challenged Patterson's request, UGA did not challenge Field's request.

02/09/2019 - 8:33am Uh or maybe it took…

Uh or maybe it took Patterson longer because Ole Miss challenged his application whereas UGA did not challenge Field's application for immediate eligibility. Common sense would tell you a request that is challenged would take longer than a unchallenged request. Pretty simple.

02/09/2019 - 8:25am You think the UM OL & DB's…

You think the UM OL & DB's played well enough to win? From my seat it looked like OSU dominated all the position groups , meaning UM had a lot more problems that day in Columbus than just the DL & QB play don't you think? OSU's receiver on the first TD was wide open. UM couldn't cover the slot receivers at all. OSU picked on your $.05back the whole game. 

02/09/2019 - 8:07am UGA didn't challenge Field's…

UGA didn't challenge Field's application for hardship request for immediate eligibility. Ole Miss however did challenge Patterson's reasons for immediate eligibility.  That adds at least 2-3 months of depositions & discovery for both sides. surely lengthening the process versus a unchallenged application. 

02/09/2019 - 7:59am I think some here don't…

I think some here don't realise the biggest factor in determining a eligibility request? UGA did not challenge the application for immediate eligibility, Ole Miss challenged the  legitimacy of Patterson's claim of hardship. That alone probably speeds up the process a couple months. I thought Patterson's case was 100% legit except for the fact that Patterson knew they were being investigated when he signed his LOI. 

02/07/2019 - 5:39am Sounds more complicated than…

Sounds more complicated than just GPA. I don't remember if it is the 2nd or 3rd year, players have to be at a certain level for their degree to remain eligible. So that players can't just take electives and general classes without working towards an actual degree.

3rd round imo. Unless he totally kills the combine.

I believe antonio winfield was 5'9", one of the hardest hitting corners during his time.

01/12/2019 - 9:19am That works great against…

That works great against most teams. But most DC's of elite teams stop the run 1st. Good example is how msu 2015 @ Cbus, clemson 2016, UM 2016&17 and oklahoma 2017 shut down OSU with JT Barret. They were all-in stopping the run.you could probably add 2017 Iowa as well. They were willing to give up the occasional pass plays too shut down the run

01/10/2019 - 6:10am Arb Lover,  more about…

Arb Lover,  more about matchups than anything. OSU biggest weakness was @ LB this year. Um's offense only forces defenses to cover 60% of the field, cutting down the area drastically that our LB's had to cover . Or washington and mattison were involved in a conspiracy, either or.

01/09/2019 - 5:50am Shouldn't a well paid HC…

Shouldn't a well paid HC already be giving 100% max effort from day 1?

01/09/2019 - 5:45am OSU won their national…

OSU won their national championship in his 3rd year. Tressel won in his 2nd year. Urban won in florida 2nd year i believe. 

They say mattison was instrumental in signing Tebow.

01/07/2019 - 6:37pm There isn't a QB is the…

There isn't a QB is the league that doesn't get rattled by pressure. Even your geezer Brady isn't as effective with defenders in his face. Not many QB's look good when pressured. 

01/07/2019 - 4:37pm It's also rumored osu is…

It's also rumored osu is after Washington as well for LB coach.

01/05/2019 - 1:35pm I think the expectations for…

I think the expectations for the offense with a transfer QB in year 1 are a little high. I mean how much can a 1st year starter be expected to do, along with mostly inexperienced receiving core. OSU returned all of their playmakers that most had 2+ years of experience. Oklahoma and osu had first year starting QB's with multiple years in their programs big difference.  Patterson is just in his first year in the program. now next year should translate to a 3 year program guy.

My best account is a michigan legacy family. Great people. The owners father was friends with Bo and supposedly  part of the elite donors, the old right guard if you may. Lloyd was a respected member of the old guard.RR was the #1 rising young HC at the time. Accomplishing that @ WVU, crushing georgia in a bowl game to top it off. As i remember my clients version is RR claimed Terrel Pryor was a silent verbal to him & WVU but would follow him to ann arbor, done deal. The home run hire of the time. He delivered with DRob can't take that away from him. I think RR would have had a great year in 2011 with DRob was a once a decade guy, just phemominal how he dominated games. Hoke's first year would have looked much different without DRob, lightning in a bottle.

8 transferred and 2 were because of medical reasons. 2were OL recruits of warinner that transferred pretty quick. All about playing time and 1 expulsion from school.

12/14/2018 - 6:15am Everyone saw the maryland…

Everyone saw the maryland back destroy osu. Higdon just doesn't have the speed to get to the 2nd level against a team like osu. Some teams just have a hard time recruiting certain positions. Osu couldn't close on the top DL or QB's till Meyer and Larry Johnson showed up.

Totally agree IMblue2, he had a great opportunity. Unfortunately he didn't have his head screwed on right.

Bingo. I think Urbs rubbed Mama Harrison the wrong way somehow. I think Urban retiring will help with Harrison.

Actually they offered him a gray shirt, he declined and signed with UK. Harbaugh has processed early commits as late as november. 

11/25/2018 - 11:59am I made it a point to welcome…

I made it a point to welcome all ttun fans I ran into at the game. had beers with 2 guys from Detroit at the varsity club no less at 8 am pregame, lol.  I was surprised there wasn't many m fans at the game, considering how bad we have looked the last 4 games and that you guys were all pumped to finally have a legitimate QB. didn't see any over the line behavior towards Michigan fans. althoughj I didn't predict victory out right before the game I told everyone before the game our D matched up well with harbaughs offense. I also predicted harbaugh would stick with his antiquated power I offense that is easier to defend than Maryland's or Purdue's. running between the tackles and the RB screens were so predictable. offensively, I was worried about the don brown defense until I saw our overall team speed was still at another level vs Michigan. until harbaugh makes this rivalry a priority rather than just another game, the results may stay the same. 

***again, very surprised Michigan fans didn't show up en masse for this one.

11/22/2018 - 9:27am You would be right. Programs…

You would be right. Programs like UM, OSU and Psu's football revenue pay for all nonrevenue sports like women's lacrosse etc. In other words, the BIG athletic departments are self sustaining.

11/18/2018 - 8:18am Lol, $250, you won't find…

Lol, $250, you won't find any for that. A deck is going forv$1800 a piece, had OSU lost yesterday maybe you'd find tickets for that

come on guys spent big money on the game, win or lose ill be spending time with my son in the air force that deploys in December to afghnistan at the game.

yep just like the last 2 years, amirite? I think it was 17-0 in AA last year wasn't it?

So no angst about another 3 star? Didn't think we would see any till at least tomorrow.

I wouldn't count out Franklin just yet as much as that pains me to say, I think he's a fucking douche, he's had a couple really good recruiting classes that will keep them competitive the next couple years. Negative recruiting is his go to move like dumbtonio

To be fair it was announced that the rehab is going to take 12 weeks. The specialist that did the surgery is in Philly and will do the recovery rehab for Bosa in Philly. Would you really risk $60 million for one  bowl game or one possible play off game?

Gonna be a good game imo. Close game.

Rivers all day, he's a machine.

09/30/2018 - 9:56am His running style behind the…

His running style behind the LOS last year, was more suited for the next leval. Takeaway his TD on the opening kickoff versus OSU last year, osu completely shut him down. If he stays healthy he'll have a long and great career in the NFL. The Giants are the perfect fit for him. The giants have needed a real featured RB forever. Just like dallas was a good fit for ezekiel elliot. At the college level against the better defenses he danced around too much behind yhe LOS imo. But that works in the NFL much better than college.

How can you say ND shouldnt be on your schedule? They've been on yours and msu's schedule forever, making it a tradition imo. No different than having a PSU or Wisconsin as your 5th game.

       I agree only that i wouldn't want them as the very first game. Gotta have a tune up for a big game like that.  I'd love for OSU to have ND on the schedule as they are very hard to keep off the top 25 and are usually always overrated. If you lose you can still run the table and get in the BTCG and possibly the CFP's. Win and you automatically get credibility.  If you are a championship level team one game shouldn't keep you from  that championship.  

09/23/2018 - 8:17am I wouldn't hold a whole fan…

I wouldn't hold a whole fan base responsible for 2 callers on a local radio show no more than i would hold half of this blogs membership responsible for the handful of comments after the loss @ ND that it was time to move on from Harbaugh. 

         Some OSU fans like myself know coaches are not infallible. I think Meyer has made numerous mistakes possibly costing us at least 1 more championship. First mistake was naming Ed Warinner offensive coordinator for 2015. Instead of sticking to the gameplan already served up on a silver platter via the 2015 post season offense by Tom Herman,  Warinner wanted to do it his way, which failed miserably for 2 years. In that we couldn't back the D outa of the box.  2nd mistake is naming JT Barret the starter before spring practice in 2017. If not for wilton speights mistakes in the 2017 "Game", michigan wins that game by a score. Not the first Meyer erred in naming a starting QB.

MadHatter that might be envy, last time I checked cooks at a Big Boy restaurant isn't on par with a wingmaster @ BWW's. 

09/05/2018 - 7:16pm Kind of hard to ignore…

Kind of hard to ignore recruiting when UM doesn't have any OT's currently on the roster to do the job needed. 

But i digress. For one, more pass play's on first down. Secondly whats the answer to a aggressive pass rush? The good ole' screen pass where the rush is coming from. If most of the pressure is coming from the middle run a screen pass to the middle. The worst of the pressure sounds like it was coming from the LT spot so set up a screen to left. With a mobile QB like Patterson the option play is an answer as well. The middle screen with a shuttle pass is a good answer as well. As much as Runyon struggled attack the left side head on with a running play with a lead blocker or just punt on first down, hope for turnovers. Kidding if course.

As far back as high school whenever we played a team with a superior game changing player we ran right at him. It worked more than it didn't. 

UM just needs better players or figure out how to develop lower rated players like msu and wisconsin. Really unbelievable how um has struggled since BO. Moeller had it going in the right direction until his unfortunate and untimely demise. For most programs it's really all about the coordinators and position coaches as HC's are more and more like CEO's spending more time @ speaking engagements and recruiting and filling out title IX forms.

Imo stubhub charges wayyyyyy too much in fees, was buying tickets for the "Game" until i say $400 in fee's fuck that.  Bought better tickets @ the ticket master exchange paying only $80 in fees.
