|06/04/2018 - 9:57am||playcalling wasn't an issue||
playcalling wasn't an issue IMO, plays were there but we had QB's that couldn't get it done. OSU game was good example of this IIRC.
who else are you going to get if not Harbaugh? we got the guy everyone wanted.
EDIT: 2016, three games lost by 5 points. that was the year UM had a chance to win a championship. Wouldn't have ever happened under Hoke even w/same talent. We are now rebuilding, IMO. If defense remains where it was (very good) and offense just moves up to slightly above average, we'll contend again. 2018 hinges on QB play IMO.

This. This is the last area of health that people are still uncomfortable dealing with. As a society we've poured billions into research for cancer , which is good, but I doubt if the same level of attention has been put into finding treatments for mental health. Resources aren't limitless but more needs to be done.

She beat up on a lot of women who weren't as athletic or skilled as she was. First thing I noticed about Holm was that she was every bit as strong as Rousey and I think Rousey didn't know how to handle it.
Then she came back (looking fit as can be, FWIW) and lost to Amanda Nunes who was an even worse matchup (than Holm) for Rousey and it showed.
Anyway she could have a long career in WWE and parlay that into more movie and TV roles like many pro wrestlers do. She'll be fine.

Honestly I don't care for the Hoke comparisons. Hoke's trajectory was down from the first year and never recovered. Harbaugh took a bad 5-7 team and went 10-3. The following year had three razor thin losses. This season took a step back due to OL and QB, and it's that simple. I think the OL will be serviceable next season. Defense will be good again. It all hinges on solid QB play.

Anyway, I would claim it seems people had visions of NC's in thier head once Harbaugh took over. I 'd be happy with consistent wins over MSU and OSU, but those seem elusive as well.
The team is better off under Harbaugh than it was under Hoke or RR. But what's missing is solid QB play. Not sure when that will come.

I don't come here for political discussion, and don't understand why anyone would go to a sports blog for one. You can find that literally everywhere else. Further I would put forth that there is no discussion anymore. It's all just 'other side bad' and little else. And that line of thinking is getting to the point of violence, as today's events (bomb threat) show.
