10/31/2018 - 11:46pm I’m a 25 year old male. I am…

I’m a 25 year old male. I am married to a 24 year old female and we have a six month old baby boy. We have been together for five years and married for two.

I watch every Michigan game live (on TV, not in-person) every year, unless there is an emergency or fall wedding. If I cannot watch it live, I watch a recording, typically within 24 hours of the game’s scheduled time.

She understands that Michigan football is by far and away my biggest passion, other than my family of course. So she gives me very little grief about watching them. She does however get upset when I suggest we should not make plans when there are other big games I want to watch that don’t invlolve Michigan at all. She refers to those as “Floaties vs Squirters” games and they piss her off.

She’s pretty amazing!

I know this works for me on Charter Spectrum, but unsure if it works with Comcast / Xfinity.

If you have a smart TV, Roku, Amazon stick, game console, etc. you can download either the BTN2GO or FoxSportsGo apps (both show B1G games). From there you just need to follow the instructions they provide. It just requires authenticating your cable subscription by logging in under your account.

-Download the app

-Select a game you want to watch (this will prompt an activate screen with some instructions)

-Follow the instructions (normally just involves going to a website on your phone, entering the code on the screen and then signing in to your cable account from your phone)

-Once you've entered the activation code, give your device a few seconds and it should give you access.

 

This is not as complicated as it appears. It takes me two minutes, just make sure you have your cable login (typically just an email and password). My wife and I live in Grand Rapids and use her parents' cable subscription (they live in Detroit) and get pretty much every game every Saturday.

Hopefully this helps!

Unfortunately true.

Yup. They are all young men. Let them hone their skills, better-learn the system and hope it works.

09/05/2018 - 8:09am Not a bad idea at all.

Not a bad idea at all.

09/05/2018 - 8:07am All I know is we are not…

All I know is we are not going to get another coach better than Harbaugh at this current juncture. Coaches are not dumb and in the last eleven-ish years we have had three coaches. Nobody with the track record Harbaugh has is going to commit to that. The only coaches I would want would be Dabo, Saban, and Riley. They certainly aren't coming here.

I would also argue that the two leagues that are the most difficult to win in are the B1G and SEC, mostly because schools in those leagues actually play defense. You might also be able to include the ACC in that, but they are horribly top heavy. I hesitated to put Riley in there just because no one in the Big 12 and most teams in the PAC 12 don't play defense, so it makes all of their offenses look amazing. The playing field, mostly in the B1G East, is going to make it insanely difficult for anyone to consistently win 10+ games / B1G titles every year. Urban, the only one who has done it consistently, out-recruits everyone and it's frickin Ohio State.

I personally did not expect 10-3 for two seasons straight after Hoke. That honestly shocks me to think about. So Harbaugh, to me, is currently the best man for the job. I agree that he needs to take a step back from offensive playcalling IF it is true that Jedd primarily ran the Offense in 2015-2016. Find someone with a solid offensive track record or pedigree and hand it off to them. I don't care what kind of offense it is as long as it works.

All in all, I think we need to give Harbaugh something that most coaches are not given these days (unless they win 10+ games a year consistently) and that is longevity. Allow him to get to his first LEGIT full class of seniors and fifth-year seniors 2020-2021. Coaches stand a better chance of winning consistently if they have THEIR upperclassmen in the system.

I am bad a conclusions, but that's just how I feel about all this.

Brady Hoke was a sanction.

09/05/2018 - 7:37am I pretty much agree with…

I pretty much agree with this. My boss is a diehard MSU fan and I was talking to him about the game. I told him it essentially came down to the OLine. Both QBs looked serviceable, WRs and TEs looked decent (I was not able to watch their routes much, was too focused on the OLine), RBs were also decent. Per usual, Don Brown made halftime adjustments that worked and shut down ND. The only spot I consistently kept grabbing my hair over was the OLine. I honestly think they should just devote 1/4 - 1/3 of the next two recruiting classes to OLine prospects and see who sticks.

08/16/2018 - 3:45pm Thanks for the opportunity!

Thanks for the opportunity!

01/07/2017 - 7:09pm Check Out

I want to, but I can't stay away. I just hope Brown and Baugh can finish the job with these top recruits. I just want to beat Ohio and players like Harris and Solomon will help us get there.

11/01/2016 - 3:47pm PoSU

I hate PoSU and I'm surprised I'm not seeing their name riddled all over this post!

10/25/2016 - 9:18pm Texas

Big 12 is weak and even if it ends up falling apart the SEC or B1G will take them in with open arms. Tons of in-state talent and you know you're going to get PAID!

10/19/2016 - 4:13pm Agree

I don't disagree with that. I was trying to get across that as long as Michigan wins, they'll be in. I know that's a "duh" statement. If they don't, they're going to need some major teams to somehow accrue two losses.

10/19/2016 - 4:09pm Past

I really don't think a team's past should be factored in, not when it comes to the CFP anyway. I know it's hard not to at least think about it when ranking, but the comittee should do their darndest to strictly look at this season's performance. We're all human, we're not perfect, but kust because Ohio has had four solid seasons before now shouldn't factor in to their CFP ranking this year. My point is that the winner of this game won't have to worry about a darn thing. They'll be in. Any Power 5 team that goes undefeated theough their regular season and conference championship should be in the CFP. The only time that wouldn't be the case would be if there were multiple undefeated teams, which rarely happens.

10/19/2016 - 4:04pm Rematches

I want to see the best four teams play for a National Title, period. If Michigan is undefeated by season's end, there is no doubt that they will be viewed that way. If we have one close loss to one of the top four teams in the nation by that time and we don't get in, I'll be pretty shocked honestly. But the success and failure of other teams by that time will also factor in. The CFP system is far from perfect, but I know they're working on improving it every year. We'll see how it all turns out.

10/19/2016 - 3:18pm Undefeated

Ultimately, the most important thing when it comes to getting into the CFP is to go undefeated. I know there's a chance Michigan still gets in with a tight loss to Ohio. But if Michigan wants to guarantee a spot, they "simply" need to go undefeated. With this defense and the competent offense, they have a solid shot at doing just that.

10/19/2016 - 12:24pm Breakdown

I think one of the writers for this site did a breakdown once and claimed that Scout appeared to be the most accurate in terms of rankings. They've all got their pros and cons though. I prefer to use 247's composite rankings as a guide.

10/18/2016 - 1:26pm "Bastard"

I love that you called your own child a bastard.

10/13/2016 - 3:56pm Coaches

Brian made some solid points about coach-poaching. To add to that, even if Drevno or Fisch were to take another job, I wouldn;t be too concerned.  If both were to leave at the same time, then I would be worried. Like Brain said, I don't think Brown is going anywhere.

10/12/2016 - 12:37pm Ohio

I love that I can look at the schedule and only slightly cringe at one game. I am confident that this defense will hold strong and we will have a legit shot at the CFP.

10/11/2016 - 12:14pm Interesting

I've been a fan since I was twelve (so eleven years) and I'd say it's grown or been maintained. I pay a crap load of attention to recruiting, which I didn't do until five years ago. If I can't watch a game live, people know to not give me updates, as I watch a replay the moment I get a chance. I don't have much passion for any other sports. I'll watch basketball, but don't really enjoy it and the same can be said for hockey.

My fiance made an interesting comment recently, however. I am also a fan of the Indianapolis Colts, my family is originally from Indiana and I sure as hell was never going to cheer for the Hoosiers or Boilermakers (fuck Notre Dame), and my fiance says that I am clearly more passionate about UM than I am about Indy. She says that my attitude is drastically affected by the result of Michigan games. If the Colts win or lose, I guess I'm just kind of "meh" either way. She also said my passion has only increased since Harbaugh took over. So overall, I guess my fandom has grown, but I expect things to change a bit once we're married and start our family, but I hope to maintain a decent level of fandom.

He sounds like he was possessed by a demon when he says "AGAAAIIN." I couldn't stop laughing.

10/06/2016 - 2:28pm Simple

Take off your costume once you leave the party.

10/06/2016 - 2:04pm Glad somebody did!

Glad somebody did!

10/06/2016 - 2:03pm Agree

That's been my concern about this. Someone is going to defend themselves because they are so frightened by the encounter and be prosecuted because the clown was unarmed or something. It's all just dumb and dangerous.

10/06/2016 - 1:58pm Dumb and Dangerous

I don't know if these bozos realize how dangerous their actions are. They are causing so much concern and fear that people honestly see them as a threat. If someone is armed when they leave their home, and one of these clowns "pranks" them, people could very easily be harmed or worse. Hopefully this all just goes away after Halloween.

10/05/2016 - 3:09pm Two for Me

In terms of what game I will enjoy watching because of how close it'll be, that's Maryland at PoSU.

I am also looking forward to seeing if IU can do something against Ohio.

10/05/2016 - 11:27am You are most certainly not

You are most certainly not wrong.

10/05/2016 - 11:15am Opinions?

I really don't care when games are played. Night games often have a special atmosphere and vibe to them, but that's about it. Why are so many people saying "this is how it should be" and the like?

If I recall correctly, The Game has been played early almost every year that I have watched, but I don't really care about kickoff time as long as I get to watch it.

10/04/2016 - 10:05am I would just chalk all this

I would just chalk all this up to having a couple of classes that had solid talent and now those players are gone. Their entire team isn't very good this year, not just the defense. Their O-Line is bleh, their D-Line is bleh, their QB is bleh, their linebackers are hurt, etc. I am skeptical of pointing at one single part of the game as THE reason a team is struggling.

10/04/2016 - 9:47am Down Year

I just think it's a down year in general for them. They are struggling in multiple areas and facets of the game, no one weakness is contributing to their record thus far. When you have success at the level that they did a drop off, whether it be mild or severe, is inevitable. In Ohio's case, Urbz "down years" consist of one or two losses. In MSU's case, Dantonio's down years are three or four losses. I think MSU could very well be 7-5 give or take a win this season, but I don't think it's the end of MSU's success.

10/03/2016 - 1:25pm Could not agree more.

Could not agree more.

10/03/2016 - 1:24pm Herman

If Texas gets the jump on this, they can put themselves in a solid position to land Herman. He has loads of connections in the state and was a GA there. I know Lousiana isn't far from Texas, by any means. But I imagine that that would be the place Herman would choose to go if he leaves Houston.

10/03/2016 - 9:32am Ehhhh

Our offense has a lot of question marks too. I'm not so sure I'd take us over them as of now.

I'd say the CFP rankings, as of now, would be 1. Ohio | 2. Clemson | 3. Bama | 4. Michigan. Houston, Washington, and Texas A&M are looming though.

10/01/2016 - 3:40pm MGoVideo

MGoVideo.com typically has it up without the score the night of or the next morning.

09/30/2016 - 2:41pm Someone mentioned earlier

Someone mentioned earlier that they think it will look less awkward once we actually see them on players. That very well could be the case.

09/30/2016 - 2:30pm I was thinking more toward

I was thinking more toward the right side along the waist line.

09/30/2016 - 1:58pm Jumpman Logo

The Jumpman logo on the shorts looks out of place. A very odd location, to me.

09/30/2016 - 10:41am Sparty Folks

I don't have any Wisconsin frands, but some Sparty pals are doing the trash-talking for them. I've been told that Michigan is going to be dominated by the Badgers and they keep pointing to last week's game as the evidence. I don't think Sparty fans realize how mediocre their QB is.

09/30/2016 - 10:41am Disrespect Compounds if...

they're Lions fans too. They all think the world (especially referees) is out to get them.

09/30/2016 - 10:21am Weather

I keep hearing all this crap about bad weather and it concerns me a bit. Even if it becomes a muddy mess, I can see us putting up 30+. Their offense is THAT mediocre and our defense is THAT good.

11/25/2014 - 11:23am 4 years

Record wise, I would be happy to see slight imporvement and then mildly sustained sucess.

2015: 7-5 / 8-4     2016: 8-4 / 9-3     2017: 9-3 / 10-2     2018+: 10-2+

I told people that we needed to give Hoke four full recruiting classes, in my mind we gave him three, but he doesn't deserve another year. Giving a coach a chance to bring in four FULL classes of players that he recruited gives him the best chance to have success. I see Harbaugh being like our Bob Stoops, except a little bit of a slower start. Consistently winning 9+ games every year and being in playoff contention more often than not.

Culture wise, I just want to feel like I can go to a game and enjoy it. My first game was in 2009 when I was 15. I had such an amazing time and I wanted to go back as soon as possible. I've been to a number of games since, and it hasn't felt the same at all. I don't like going to games anymore and I want to get back to the point where I am willing to shell out to go to a mediocre matchup.

11/17/2014 - 2:26pm Prayers and Stuff

Hopefully Frank figures himself out and gets his priorities straight. Something like this will more than likely kill his draft stock, seeing as how domestic violence is a huge problem for the NFL right now.

Hopefully the victim is okay and is able to get the proper healing she needs.

11/17/2014 - 2:11pm Graham Or Bust

I'm telling you guys, Harbaugh is a 99 to 1 shot. I like Graha, and I'd say he's a 5 to 1. Go Graham!

10/28/2014 - 1:56pm Realistic Options and One Unicorn

I am going to list candidates that I feel are legitimate and Michigan can actually get. Many of the coaches I've seen on here (Gundy, Patterson, John Harbaugh, etc.) are virtually impossible to get because of their current situation or the fact that they are coaching at their alma mater.

1. Jim Harbaugh

Almost impossible, but the rumors are giving me some optimism. His track record speaks for itself.

2. Todd Graham

Everybody seems to hate him because of his "job hopping." All of his moves were understandable in my mind and if he came to UM there would be no reason for him to leave. We are a final destination job, we fire you or you retire here. There is no leaving.

3. Dan Mullen

This year has made him look amazing. I'm sold on him, but I am not fond of the fact that he currently employs the oversigning system where they cut kids if they suck and don't guarantee their scholarship for all four years. I don't like that, but he's a solid coach.

4. Jim McElwain

He's turned Colorado State into a solid program in just three years. His track record as an OC is great as well. I feel like he and Mullen are on the same level.

5. Tom Herman

He'd come here in a heart beat and he has been learning under Meyer, who I believe is a top three coach. He's also a great recruiter.

6. Les Miles

He's old, but his track record is solid and I think he could stick around for a solid ten years and hand it off to an assistant.

7. Pep Hamilton

Colt's OC. He has college experience (Stanford) and he is currently running a top five NFL offense. He'd be very risky, but I have faith in him.

Unicorn: I am a huge Colt's fan and I know he has a few more years until he retires from playing, but Peyton Manning. Every OC who has ever coached him has said that Peyton is the REAL OC, not them. Peyton is playing the best football of his career, but if he were to randomly retire, I would love to see Michigan make a run at him.

10/21/2014 - 12:55pm Peyton Manning...

...for HC.

10/07/2014 - 4:31pm Go Rams!

I am all for Jim McElwain.

1. Jim Harbaugh

2. Todd Graham

3. McElwain

10/07/2014 - 4:28pm Struggling in Big Games

My guess is that he feels they struggle offensively in big games.

2013

FSU 51-14 | S Carolina 31-17

Not a ton of evidence, but that's my best guess.

I think he'd be a solid HC.

10/07/2014 - 4:19pm Graham is My #2

...behind Jim Harbaugh. The "mercenary" stuff is overblown. Michigan is one of those jobs that you don't leave unless you alma mater is Texas, FSU, USC, OSU or Bama. He would be at Michigan for a long time assuming he has succes.
