10/14/2018 - 3:58pm Well by that logic I’m…

Well by that logic I’m looking forward to Rutgers being Jim’s biggest win in a few weeks. 

Biggest win by far? This is objectively wrong. Full stop.

The importance of a win is also not just determined by the next game. Or by past years. Yesterday’s game will be a bigger win even after next week. 

10/14/2018 - 3:46pm But this Wisconsin team may…

But this Wisconsin team may end up losing two more games. PSU 2016 is bigger IMO. 

And winning next week will NOT be the biggest win of the era. Sorry but if we win Sparty will be 4-3. Yes it’s a rival but come one. 

10/14/2018 - 3:31pm Didn’t we beat 3 top 10…

Didn’t we beat 3 top 10 teams in 2016?

Including a blowout of the BIG Champ PSU? 

Seems like one of those is probably the best win of the harbaugh era. 

10/10/2018 - 11:46am Spot on here. 2016 vs OSU…

Spot on here. 2016 vs OSU was far and away the most important game in the Harbaugh era so far.

It will most likely remain so until we roll into Columbus at 10-1. In order to get there we need to beat the next 5 opponents, but that doesn’t make each of those the most important game IMO. 

10/07/2018 - 5:11pm Personally, I’d wait a few…

Personally, I’d wait a few more weeks before putting the NW win above WMU. 

If NW continues to play well and gets to 4-3 then I’d move it up. Until then, they are a 2-3 team with a really bad loss and one good(ish) win. 

Any wins over Wisc, MSU, PSU, and OSU will pretty much instantly jump all the games up until this point. And any losses to those teams (except OSU) will become our worst of the season given the circumstances.

We’re at home against Wisconsin and PSU. MSU is on the road, but they’re going to be 3-3 when we play them. Losing to any of those teams will be worse than the ND game. 

10/06/2018 - 9:15pm Seriously, up until last…

Seriously, up until last week everyone was saying that Dwumfor was the most disappointing player of the year. And now you’re terrified he’s hurt after a 20+ point win? 

Seriously don’t understand my fellow Michigan fans sometimes. The boys looked solid today, Sparty lost, and there are still so many negative nancies out there. 

Michigan did exactly what they needed to do these past 5 weeks, and have mostly looked good doing it. Relax and enjoy the ride! We’ll find out exactly what kind of team we have over the next 4 weeks  


10/06/2018 - 9:07pm Well if you’re taking away…

Well if you’re taking away the pick 6, I’m taking away the KO return TD. Because they certainly weren’t scoring in the first half without it. 

Sorry, but based on your comment, it’s an 85% chance you are a troll. 

10/06/2018 - 9:53am Come on man, you’re batter…

Come on man, you’re batter than that!

10/06/2018 - 9:30am Gotta find a way to turn…

Gotta find a way to turn that into a first date.

“Sorry I broke your leg, let me take you to dinner to make up for it. Or perhaps you’d like a ride to the hospital?”

10/02/2018 - 5:46pm Didn’t we play an FCS team…

Didn’t we play an FCS team in the RR era that kept it close? 

I remember we were never in real danger of losing, but the defense looked awful all game. Gave me an ulcer for the season to come. 

Edit: Had a moment to look it up. It was the 42-37 win over UMass. Gross. 

09/28/2018 - 11:15pm I think they said he’s…

I think they said he’s available to play tonight. 

Kelly just went with the dual threat freshman, and I think he looks pretty good honestly. 

09/28/2018 - 10:02pm I refuse to believe anyone…

I refuse to believe anyone actually likes the taste of eating a lemon by itself. 

That being said, whisky (nice job spelling it correctly btw) is the nectar of the gods. And neat is the only way to fly IMO. 

09/28/2018 - 8:41pm Ha ha nice. I was about to…

Ha ha nice. I was about to ask more about your Dalmore.

Best I’ve got is the Dalmore King Alexander III. Will probably have a dram of that later this evening. 

Currently I’m drinking Pfreim’s Pumpkin Bier and getting ready for the Colorado-UCLA game. Montez and Shenault are on my fantasy teams. 

09/28/2018 - 8:32pm I mean, Woody did punch a…

I mean, Woody did punch a college kid on the sideline on national TV. 

Let’s just call it a tie. 

09/28/2018 - 7:14pm Woody Hayes would like a…

Woody Hayes would like a word with you. But point taken. 

09/26/2018 - 11:01am While that may be true, how…

While that may be true, how do we know that Bryant won’t graduate from Clemson this year? And then work on a grad degree next year?

Overall, I agree with your point. This move is almost certainly 100% football driven. But these players can also have the best of both worlds. Come out after 5 years with 1-2 degrees, take your shot at the NFL, and then start your career when you can’t play anymore.

I also think we should be paying players, so they get even more of a leg up on post football life. 

09/25/2018 - 11:07am Yeah that’s totally fair…

Yeah that’s totally fair. Like I said, it’s a pet peeve of mine. I realize it probably doesn’t bother others that much. 

Maybe we could do a sticky about game times or add it to Ron Utah’s post? 

09/25/2018 - 10:33am I know it’s silly, but these…

I know it’s silly, but these threads really grind my gears. Call it a pet peeve. 

The rules for when game times are announced has been the same for years. And yet, we get these threads pretty much on a weekly basis. If anyone knew the game time for the MSU game, it would be public knowledge. No one has anything to gain from keeping it a secret.

09/24/2018 - 8:34pm There certainly is a…

There certainly is a universe where that happens. But it would take such an extraordinary turn of events that it’s barely worth talking about. 

First of all, we have to go 12-1. Guessing that’s about a 5–7% chance if you averaged win probabilities. 

Then ND would need to go undefeated. They obviously would have a pretty strong case to get in over us. Heck, they may even have a case with 1 loss to say...

Stanford. Stanford could also go undefeated and with their schedule (@ND, @Oregon, USC, UW, P12CG) would also have a great case to go over us. 

SEC Champ, assuming they only have 0 or 1 losses is going to get in. 

Undefeated Clemson is also getting in over us. Same with Oklahoma I suspect.

So there you go. A universe where Michigan is left out of the playoff, and probably for good reason if I’m honest. 

09/22/2018 - 3:51pm I’m assuming Gary just…

I’m assuming Gary just tweaked his shoulder slightly? He was rampant in the first half until they pulled him. 

DTs looked great today IMO. Marshall and Dwumfor both had stand out plays. Mone and Kemp continued to look solid. If Solomon comes back at some point, that position starts looking like a major strength instead of the ? it appeared to be after the ND game. Mattison uber alles. 

09/22/2018 - 2:21am Barring some really fluky or…

Barring some really fluky or crazy stuff happening, Stanford is going to walk all over Oregon. 

Chip’s Ducks are long gone. I’m honestly shocked the spread is only -2/-2.5 because Stanford is probably 10-12 points better on paper. 

09/21/2018 - 5:36pm Woohoo!! Go Blue! 

Woohoo!! Go Blue! 

09/10/2018 - 1:54pm That makes sense. I'm…

That makes sense. I'm totally fine with 1230 (PT) games as well, mainly for the reason you and the previous poster mentioned.

However, my preference is still the 9am kickoffs. I don't like waiting for the game to start, especially when it's a big game. And if I really want to, I can start hitting the beer around halftime without feeling too guilty.

Mainly, I like the option of doing things outside after the game is over. With the shorter days Fall brings, that's hard to pull off even with a 1230pm start. 

09/10/2018 - 11:58am First off, everyone has…

First off, everyone has different schedules and priorities, so there will always be varying views on what time is the “best”.  

That being said, as a West Coast wolverine who’s over 30, I enjoy the noon games, which are actually 9am kicks for me. Wake up at 6 or 7, drink some coffee, take care of a few things around the house, and then it’s kickoff time.

If things go well, Michigan has won, its 1230pm, the sun is shining, and it’s time to drink a beer and hit the outdoors. Doesn’t get much better than that, especially in the fall when the weather is perfect. 

09/09/2018 - 3:27am Pretty sure that’s Lewerke’s…

Pretty sure that’s Lewerke’s dad. Which makes it even better. 

09/08/2018 - 10:10pm Nothing new my dude. Games…

Nothing new my dude. Games times often get announced 7-10 days in advance. I don’t like it either, but it’s been that way for a long time. 

09/08/2018 - 6:44pm I got quite a bit of…

I got quite a bit of enjoyment out of this game. If you didn’t, I feel sorry for you as a sports fan. Learn to enjoy success, even if it’s expected. 

09/08/2018 - 6:40pm I really hope you forgot the…

I really hope you forgot the /s in your comment. Dude if you aren’t satisfied with this blowout, I don’t know what to tell you. The world must be a dark cold place for you. I’m guessing you were one of the “fans” grumbling after the first possession. 

I’m proud of the team today, all around. Played really well and dominated an overmatched team. On to the next one. Go Blue! 

09/08/2018 - 6:36pm Sounds like a problem with…

Sounds like a problem with your TV or eyes. The endzones looked Blue to me, and they are spectacular. 

09/03/2018 - 11:05pm I don’t know if 3 sacks were…

I don’t know if 3 sacks were all his fault, but I did rewatch the game and he was solely responsible for several blown up plays. JBB also had a handful, the pick was mostly on Ruiz and a poor decision by Shea. Saw Onwenu make one big mistake. Higdon actually did quite well in pass pro.  

But Runyan was clearly the weakest link, and I think UFR will bear that out.  

09/03/2018 - 10:05pm I don’t know man. I’ve…

I don’t know man. I’ve watched the game almost 3 times now, and he sticks out as the primary cause of most of the major play breakdowns. 

Many times I watched a play full speed, and then went back to diagnose where the breakdown occurred. It wasn’t always Runyan, but he was definitely the weakest link on the line. 

I agree that the personal attacks on him should not be happening, but he played very poorly IMO. 

By contrast, I actually thought Higdon did a pretty solid job in pass pro. There was the one pressure he allowed up the middle, but I think that was more on Ruiz because Higdon was trying to release into a route when Ruiz allowed a guy to go right by him. 

Long story short, if there is anyone else who seems plausible at LT, give him a shot. 

09/01/2018 - 5:34pm Problem is he may have…

Problem is he may have regained control, but it was only for an instant before it dislodged again. Look at it this way, imagine there is a fumble laying on the turf and a player jumps on it, has control for an instant, but then it squirts out again. That’s still a live ball 99% of the time. 

Once the ball is loose, it has to be secured to the ground. And the Texas player didn’t do that in my opinion. 

09/01/2018 - 5:22pm Pretty clear fumble IMO. I’m…

Pretty clear fumble IMO. I’m not rooting for Maryland, but I want Texas to lose. 

09/01/2018 - 5:21pm Lol, okay buddy. 

Lol, okay buddy.

08/26/2018 - 6:32pm What does this even mean? 

What does this even mean? 

I’m pretty sure Harbaugh will start the best player. Full stop.

What other motivation could there be than to beat ND? And why would you start anyone other than the guy that gives you the best chance to do so? 

05/13/2018 - 4:33pm I’m pretty sure posbang is

I’m pretty sure posbang is one word. Otherwise it looks a bit awkward.

05/09/2018 - 12:10am I wish we worked together ha

I wish we worked together ha ha! Although we may get ourselves into trouble.

05/09/2018 - 12:06am It’s one of my favorite parts

It’s one of my favorite parts of the job! Granted, I only travel 7-10 times a year, usually for 3-4 days each.

It’s the perfect amount for me personally. It gives me a break from the office, allows me to see new places, and meet new people. Sometimes, I can extend the trip by a few days to do some sightseeing or have the wife join me for a mini vacation at half the cost.

Plus, it’s allowed me to rack up enough miles to pay for flights on my actual vacations!

05/08/2018 - 11:12pm I’m a beer tourist. When

I’m a beer tourist. When traveling for work, I like to find the best local brews (and food if possible) and get the taste of the town.

I’ve also been known to splurge if there is a local sporting event going on. Went to Boston for the first time last May. Caught a Sox game one night and Celtics playoff game the next.

I’m also a history buff, so I try to explore towns from the angle, especially when I’m on the east coast.

04/15/2018 - 11:00pm I’m pretty sure they used

I’m pretty sure they used thermite plasma rockets, assuming they were operational in time.

That is unless they saw green smoke upon approach, of course indicating that the threat had been neutralized.

04/04/2018 - 11:02am Welp I definitely won’t be

Welp I definitely won’t be watching the championship if that happens.

ND winning the title will be annoying but fine. They are a great team with great coaching, and it will be well deserved.

OSU getting a title will also be deserved, but them getting one in hockey will be a bit painful since it’s been 20 years for us now. If they beat us in the title game it will suck even more.

I guess what I’m saying is, let’s win the whole damn thing!!

04/03/2018 - 12:20am Yeah because one year

Yeah because one year outweighs the 35 before it. JB is a great offensive coach, but the guys didn’t have their stroke this season. It happens.

We also played the best defense for a Michigan team, maybe in history.

The end result was an incredible run. I have no doubts or regrets about this season. We were the 2nd best team in the country this season for the 2nd time in the past 6 years. And I’ve loved every minute of it!

03/30/2018 - 9:18am Lololololololololol


03/29/2018 - 9:49am I think the issue lies in the

I think the issue lies in the number of threads about this. As you know based on the recent alumni census, there are approximately 589,000 alumni worldwide. If every one of them started a thread asking where to watch the game, that would make for a pretty crappy site.

Considering there is a list of all the places to watch, these threads are completely unnecessary. Not to mention, a simple google search for Michigan alumni association of New York would answer this question in about two minutes.

Doesn’t matter though, we’ll get no less than 15 more of these before the game Saturday.

03/28/2018 - 11:01am Is SpartanDawg an official

Is SpartanDawg an official term the university uses?

I know the term Michigan Man often rubs people the wrong way, and at times, it’s been downright misused, overused, etc.

But SpartanDawg? Really? With the “awg” spelling? I have so many questions. Where the hell did that come from, what does it mean, and who honestly thinks it’s a good idea?

If I was an alum of that school, I’d want that term to die in a fire immediately. But I’m guessing they love it over at RCMB.

03/25/2018 - 11:53pm I bought tickets from NoDak

I bought tickets from NoDak fans after tiny Jesus took them out a few years back. Loved seeing their sadness when I picked up the tickets. It a good deal too!

03/25/2018 - 11:45pm Yep been going on probably

Yep been going on probably for 10-15 years at the very least. We just haven’t got to see it much as fans these past few years.

Go Blue! Time to exorcise our St Paul demons, hopefully against Duluth! But I’d also settle for whooping the buckeyes.

03/25/2018 - 12:40am Woooooohooooooo!!!!!!! Go

Woooooohooooooo!!!!!!! Go Blue forever baby!

03/25/2018 - 12:22am Right there with you! Pouring

Right there with you! Pouring a dram of Ardbeg Uigeadail as we speak! Slainte!!
