Jamal Crawford. FTW.

03/14/2018 - 5:58pm JCross

Jamal Crawford. Ever seen that guy catch fire in real life?

09/16/2017 - 4:37pm Except

Florida & Air Force > than any team they've faced, and Cincy is probably better than 2 of the 3. Our defense is much faster and capable of making impact plays... And for all of his faults, can we honestly say we'd rather have Hornibrook over Speight?

09/16/2017 - 3:59pm Last

3 throws by Rosen...

09/16/2017 - 3:58pm Memphis

Coach oughtta be ashamed. Might have just robbed his kids of this win.

09/16/2017 - 3:46pm Everybody loves Rosen

And hates Speight... But even Golden Boy's don't play the position without critical mistakes.

09/16/2017 - 3:42pm A lot

While we're comparing our circumstances to other programs... A lot of people that frequent this blog have a real hard on for offense and QB play. UCLA has a top shelf one, is ranked, and is currently losing to Memphis 48-45. If that garbage hold doesn't bring back Isaac's TD run, and 1 busted coverage doesn't happen, we beat an AF team that is tough to prepare for and plays just about everyone tough 33-6. I'll take our team 10 times outta 10.

09/16/2017 - 3:27pm Yeah

You're probably right. I should just be pessimistic and miserable about something I watch for entertainment and because I love it. It's not like the team has a championship caliber defense and very good special teams to help keep the the team afloat and give the offense, loaded with young talent, a chance to gain experience and get better. That's IMPOSSIBLE.

09/16/2017 - 3:11pm The Offense

I don't think the offense is hopeless. They move the ball up and down the field between the 20's, almost 400 yards of offense today and plenty of trips to the RZ is you make 5 FGs... It just seems like Drevno and Speight both overthink things inside the 20.

09/16/2017 - 2:58pm FUCK!

The injuries

09/16/2017 - 2:57pm Hmmm

Speight's fault?

09/16/2017 - 2:57pm Hmmm

Speight a fault?

09/16/2017 - 2:45pm Defense

Tired and on their heels.

09/16/2017 - 2:36pm No call

Illegal motion right? The man in motion has to run parallel or backward pre snap, doesn't he? Because he wasn't.

09/16/2017 - 2:27pm Risk reward

Offense struggling with the possessions they are getting, no need to keep the defense on the field with a silly penalty. Plus, you have an electric return man against a team that is consistently out punting their coverage. Give him a chance.

09/16/2017 - 2:23pm Flag

That's a terrible call. Ty can't catch a break getting to pay dirt. Offense struggling as is, but that's now 2 TDs unjustly wiped away by refs this season.

09/16/2017 - 1:47pm UofM

Will win, and will cover. Nancy's.

09/16/2017 - 1:42pm Over the top

The over the top negativity on here is comical. This young team has work to do, sure... But a lot of the miscues are self inflicted, thus fixable. I keep seeing that we're "not the #7 team in the nation". Maybe not, but the defense is going keep us in every game this season, and everyone knew a well coached AF team with 2 weeks to prepare for their SB wasn't going to be your traditional cupcake. Is PSU a top 5 team??? Everyone seems to be sucking their dick following their luckbox run last year, expecting us to lose to them. They beat Pitt 33-14... The same Pitt squad that is down 49-7 before the half this afternoon. Few college teams look unbeatable week in, week out. Actually, none of the do. Even Bama drops about 1 game a season. Relax just a cunt hair.

09/16/2017 - 1:19pm Again

Run all the way down near the RZ... Then pass, pass. Just do what works and then work on your sketchy passing attack once you have a somewhat comfortable lead.

09/16/2017 - 1:05pm Isaac

Ty hasn't done much wrong so far this season, but he should've just hammered it to the right/middle there for a yard or 2 and kept the drive alive.

09/16/2017 - 12:52pm Red Zone

The RZ play calling is ATROCIOUS. If your heart is set on throwing the ball on 1st down, why not try some quick hitters? Or your new toys on the outside are the size of small forwards. How bout a 3 step drop, fade? Basketball type players tend to win jump balls.

09/08/2017 - 9:10am GANG

Bang! Er-I mean tackle.

09/04/2017 - 5:52pm Speight

I think Speight gets way too much backlash from a sizable portion of the fan base. Is he Tom Brady or Chad Henne? Absolutely not... But I'd much rather have him under center than another Denard or Devin type, where you held your breath every time he threw a ball down field, or scrambled back 10-15 yards further while under pressure. He makes some critical mistakes from time to time, every QB does. He is also a primary reason we even had a shot at beating OSU or FSU last year. Sure, mistakes were made in those games as well, but that's more likely to happen against better, more athletic defenses. If you give him the overturned TD back Saturday (which was mostly him improvising and making a great throw that only his player had an opportunity to make a play on.), Crawford comes down with the first INT & he connects on the wall in TD later in the game (maybe doesn't try to throw a perfectly placed ball with only 1 pick 6 under his belt)... His line looks more 14-25, 250 yards, 3 TDs/1 INT. I doubt many, if any QBs in the SEC accomplish as much against Florida this season. He's enough to lead this team to a potential Big 10 championship & playoff contention. Especially once he builds chemistry will basically all New pass catchers, a reshuffled OL stabilizes & THAT defense & ST ability.

EDIT : I should've added the disclaimer that I LOVED both Denard & Devin. Denard for his unmatched excitement value, especially relative to the program's history, and his leadership and attitude. Devin for his toughness and the way he endured playing for coaches that hampered his growth and likely shortened his career.

09/03/2017 - 2:49pm Week 1

Best non Michigan thing I saw, USC long snapper obviously.

The best Michigan thing I actually heard, or didn't hear rather... I loved the guy as much as anyone, but grew very tired of having to hear all of the different positions Peppers could play, and how he would impact the game on EVERY broadcast. I'd equate it to having to hear how Denard's nickname was Shoelace because he didn't tie his shoes, even during games! So I enjoyed not having to endure that rundown for the Umpteenth time, or having offensive possessions wasted on gimmick plays that never really worked.

07/23/2017 - 2:57pm Face of Golf

It seemed like after Tiger fell from grace and hit his massive decline, everyone wanted to anoint Rory as the face of golf (Even gave him the video game cover.). Looks like Jordan barged through the front door and snatched the crown.

It's too bad that I don't care for Under Armor's designs, because they've locked up a lot of athletes that I respect and enjoy watching the most... Brady, Curry, Spieth, Phelps, The Rock, Kershaw, Newton. I'm not a huge Cam fan like the rest, but his style of play is unique and he's fun to watch.

04/29/2017 - 2:38pm The record

Is 11 by Miami... Would be kind of cool to break that.

03/23/2017 - 9:05pm I'm not

Mad or upset... Maybe a little sad about would could have been. Far from our best game. One sided foul calls and breaks once again... And still could have won. I'm very proud of these kids. The Seniors couldn't have played any better.

03/23/2017 - 8:33pm Mo

Had his feet set and got trucked... Then Zak does nothing and they bail Ennis out. Also, Ennis is not their offensive threat, Zak needs to be on Dorsey.

03/23/2017 - 8:28pm Guys

Have to quit passing up decent looks just because they've struggled thus far. A good look is a good look... And DWJ & Zak need to be more assertive offensively.

03/23/2017 - 8:21pm So

Oregon is allowed to lower their shoulder and push off, but we're not. Standard.

03/23/2017 - 8:01pm There were

Good things in spite of the uncharacteristic offensive struggles... Walton has been brilliant, Zak has been a mad man on the defensive glass, limiting second chance opportunities, and we're perfect from the line.

03/23/2017 - 7:57pm Poor Duncan

Is getting abused.

03/23/2017 - 7:37pm Our bigs...

Specifically Mo, need to anticipate that dive to the basket better.

03/23/2017 - 7:26pm I hate

Official/TV timeouts.

03/19/2017 - 10:41pm The other day

I was telling my brother after they completed the BTT run that this team was one my top 3 favorite Michigan basketball teams I've ever watched, and I've been alive for the NC in 89', The Fab 5 & The Burke-led Bunch... Much like the 2011 Sugar Bowl squad led by Denard & Co, which was one of my favorite football seasons as well, they weren't without their flaws, but they were resilient, clutch, and a lot of fun to watch. Now that they've made it to the Sweet 16, it could all end against the Ducks and I still think they take over the top spot overall. I don't want to be a prisoner of the moment, but I love these kids, I love this coach. They've brought me so much irrational joy over the past month and I'm so proud to be a fan.

03/19/2017 - 10:25pm I think

That maybe at this point, there's new motivation. Seizing the day following the travel incident, and then I read that the team was baffled by their seeding. Certainly aren't playing like a 7!!!

03/19/2017 - 10:22pm OK

I'm not saying either one would have been a cake walk or that they weren't capable of beating us... But I think I prefer this matchup. Oregon just recently lost a key piece to their lineup and they're probably still trying to figure out the best way to fill that void. URI was looking pretty impressive for an 11 seed, and it seems like the deeper the "Cinderella's" get in these tourney's, the more momentum and confidence they gain. But hey man, I was thrilled with the BTT banner, this is all cake and ice cream for me!!!

03/19/2017 - 3:49pm Why

Do they get NBA guys to help out during March Madness??? Kenny Smith has no idea what the fuck he's talking about! He didn't know we had 3 guys this versatile? That Wagner was capable of that??? Mo has been a stud and our best big offensively for most of the season. DJ has just recently turned it back on in both tourney's, which I am very happy about obviously... But if these analysts don't know, they should really just zip it instead of showing their ignorance.

03/19/2017 - 3:41pm He certainly deserves one

And I have no problem dedicating a thread or two to the obvious choices/stand outs each win... But I also think someone should create a Seniors/MAAR appreciation thread. Irvin was selective and efficient offensively, DWJ still led the team and had his fingerprints all over the game despite shooting woes, MAAR made timely plays when we needed them and all 3 played great defense and made UL's perimeter players a complete non factor.

03/19/2017 - 3:16pm Sweet!

Bang me!

03/19/2017 - 2:33pm BTW

This is one of the best games I've ever seen DWJ play. He didn't have it going offensively, but he still stayed engaged, got his teammates going early and often, and great defense on Snider. Oh, also amidst the shooting woes, he still stepped to the line like a G and knocked them down.

03/19/2017 - 2:21pm HELL YEA!

FUCK YES! FUCK LOUISVILLE! FUCK REFS! AND MOST OF ALL, FUCK PITINI!!!

03/19/2017 - 2:18pm I feel like

Danny Glover.

03/19/2017 - 2:16pm I love JB

But he needs to find room in the budget to hire an assistant specific to coach inbounding.

03/19/2017 - 2:14pm WHY

Didn't he pass it to MAAR??? And Walton needs to go get the fuckkn ball!

03/19/2017 - 2:08pm We

Get a lead, refs swallow whistles down the stretch. DJ was mauled.

03/19/2017 - 2:04pm Here's

What I love about this team... Even when the 3 isn't falling, we still have a chance to grind it out. If it is, they got no shot unless they go ape shit like Okie St.

03/19/2017 - 2:02pm Macho Man

Said it best... The cream ALWAYS rises to the top! And if you didn't know, he's a SAVAGE.

03/19/2017 - 1:48pm Probably

A 3 point swing because they got a FT and we were about to get out on the break.

03/19/2017 - 1:47pm NOT

A kicked ball. Unintentional, incentenal from a bad pass. Rule clearly states that.
