11/25/2018 - 12:03pm My snowflake:  maybe we are…

My snowflake:  maybe we are not good enough yet to devote significant practice time throughout the season to game planning for OSU.  We still have to focus on each opponent.  OSU used weekly practice time for The Game (per post a few days back).  And that's why they looked disorganized in some of their earlier games.

Agree?  Disagree?

Best comment I've seen so far on this!  (from Freep Reporter Chris Solari's twitter feed)

Over/under on Harbaugh running 41 different formations this year just out of spite.

It's fun to be generous.  Especially to people who have made your life more enjoyable.

I recommend after your visit to Bolivia that you not return to this blog.  

Instead, find one of many message boards where you can remain anonymous, unconnected and uncaring towards those who produce and participate in its content.  

I should think we will all be much happier for it.    

10/10/2018 - 6:34pm It seemed like in Michigan's…

It seemed like in Michigan's first series they had a lot more pre-snap motion than normal.  Very similar to what we were told Matt Canada likes to use.

Was that just me or was it something Harbaugh was doing to mess with Maryland?

10/02/2018 - 1:46pm I guess I'm still surprised…

I guess I'm still surprised why everyone is surprised by this.  

Michigan used to be elite and is still pretentious.  For the time being, Michigan are beatable and it always makes one feel bigger to take down the person(s) who was in power...whether you are a player, fan or even referee.  We also don't carry enough influence in the conference or nation for people to be worried about what we may think or say about them, so they can continue to 'beat a toothless lion.'  

So the way back to the top means we have to beat our opponents and overcome a lot of other factors as well.  Unfortunately that may be a hill too steep to climb.  


09/02/2018 - 6:44pm This post begs the question,…

This post begs the question, "Has Harbaugh demonstrated that he is not willing to develop three and four star talent?"  Last I checked we have for 5 stars on the current roster so I hope that assumption is false.  

Grammar police, am I doing this right?




04/03/2018 - 11:27am Really good thought.  Could

Really good thought.  Could be that!

The only other thing I've been able to come up with is that to Mo it was obvious what changed the flow of the game and he was upset about it.  His tone and body language just seemed chippy rather than down.

04/03/2018 - 10:00am Yeah, I for sure am not

Yeah, I for sure am not trying to fault Mo.  I'm just really curious what question he was responding to.  

And i know it's not 100% certain what he said, but it sure sounds pretty clear to me.  And if he did say something along the lines of 'how dare he ask that question,' what question do we think he was frustrated with? 

10/21/2017 - 4:04am Underrated post.  Sounds like

Underrated post.  Sounds like you have thought about/studied this.  Recommendations for where I can digest a bit more?  

10/15/2017 - 5:32pm We already tried Brady as HC.

We already tried Brady as HC.  But I guess we could try him as a QB coach...

10/14/2017 - 5:57pm I wondered what last weeks

I wondered what last weeks game would have looked like if we hadn't turned the ball over 5 times.

Now I know.

10/09/2017 - 12:46pm Totally agree with the

Totally agree with the 'growing pains' comment.  It stinks to lose to MSU.  It doesn’t mean the coaches are idiots and the future is bleak.  As fans, we always want to sacrifice long-term success for immediate satisfaction.

My thoughts after the game were:

We simply don’t have a great QB yet. 

We are not going to change scheme for O’Korn b/c we are building a system and are developing younger players into it.  Switching schemes for 6 or 7 games is short-term thinking. 

We are not great yet, but should be good enough to beat all but the best competition with where we are at the moment.  But we are not good enough to have a -5 turnover margin against that kind of competition and still win.

03/05/2017 - 9:37pm Sounds interesting.  I'd like

Sounds interesting.  I'd like to watch him play sometime.  Who does Irving play for?

What about when Harbaugh becomes POTUS? 

Will make things pretty tricky around here.

I thought Pepper's would be our starting QB?

11/05/2016 - 9:14pm OSU looks good.
And too bad

OSU looks good.

And too bad Sparty will be using all their practice time prepping to try to beat Michigan next year.

11/03/2016 - 3:28pm So it doesn't take any time

So it doesn't take any time or energy to interview for a new job, talk with your family about a major relocation and make a well-thought through decision?  

I'm not saying it lost them the game, but I also don't understand those who say it didn't have any bearing whatsoever on the preparation for The Game.  

10/10/2016 - 6:42pm Spate.  I'm sure he meant a

Spate.  I'm sure he meant a spate of QB's will be drafted this year.


10/09/2016 - 5:44am I mostly agree.
I understand

I mostly agree.

I understand you are excited, but the part about "a living, breathing opponent" was a tad too far, don't you think?  

jk.  Good thoughts!

Would another serious issue be that the young man has to resort to using a substance in order to feel happy or satisifed when he is supposedly doing what he always dreamed of doing with his life?

What are international viewers doing? 

I currently use my bro-in-law's BTN2Go login as well as a subcription to  will these be sufficient for this season?  (not sure what will happen when FS1 and FS2 start taking over)

Thanks for any help!

08/26/2016 - 2:58pm Very committed Christian

Very committed Christian here.

I normally do not discuss this kinda stuff online with strangers, but I found your authenticity refreshing.

I do not believe in the same God you do not believe in.

06/09/2016 - 6:24pm +1 for Murren.
Wengen - on

+1 for Murren.

Wengen - on the other side of the Lauterbrunnen valley - is my favourite!

is David: David and


is David: David and The Sleeping Giant? 

I thought in the story, David was David and the Giant was the Giant and they were both awake?

Unless, it wasn't a spelling mistake and they just forgot the comma and we are The Sleeping Giant, but we are afraid that we are no longer asleep.  So this: "Unless you're scared you have awaken (comma), The Sleeping Giant." 

I have so much confuse.


04/27/2016 - 6:26pm So you are saying that

So you are saying that interviewing for a job that requires both a change in role  as well as a major geographic relocation does not involve any time or energy to consider?  

03/21/2016 - 3:47pm I hope not.  I feel like the

I hope not.  I feel like the main lacking piece with this team is somebody with a bit of fire.  

I don't agree with disrespecting authority, but we have a team full of nice guys without a killer instinct.  

03/18/2016 - 5:04pm crazy thought

what if we win and Sparty loses?  

02/26/2016 - 5:28pm Sports writers have it so

Sports writers have it so easy now with Harbaugh.  

All they have to do is follow every single thing he does and then write an article that starts out, "Best (insert Harbaugh action) of the (choose one of the following:  day, week, month, season, off-season)" 



02/16/2016 - 7:26pm I can't wait for the infrared

I can't wait for the infrared camera angle.  I don't need to seem them score, I just want to see how hard they're working.  

02/10/2016 - 3:37pm Yep, that's what I was on

Yep, that's what I was on about! 

But in hindsight, maybe Harbaugh would go with know, to make his point but still feign ignorance.   

02/10/2016 - 1:56pm How many stakes do you think

How many stakes do you think he has already gathered up for their trip to EL this year?  

01/31/2016 - 5:22pm For all the

For all the MGoLawyers...

Would it be possible for all the players who have had their careers ruined by the Detroit Lions to file a class action lawsuit?  

Someone could make a boat load of money and finally put the franchise out of its misery.  

01/24/2016 - 4:39pm I haven't watched the NFL in

I haven't watched the NFL in aaages...but tuned in and feel like I've missed a lot.

Jim Nance?!  Isn't the HGH and Peyton thing a big deal?!  Do teams gain yards running the ball anymore? And...Jim Nance?! 

So many questions...

01/14/2016 - 5:42pm Perfect!


And is this further visual evidence of Newton's 3rd Law?  That guy is like the anti-Bielfeldt.

01/14/2016 - 5:09pm That's the one!

That's the one! was worth watching again!

The crazy thing is that's exactly what my face looked like during the entirety of the second half of the 2014 football season.  

01/14/2016 - 4:46pm Great gifs

I couldn't wait for the gifs from this game...but it's missing the one I thought for sure would be in!  

Robinson sank a 3 (in the first half, I believe) and the look on the staffperson's face sitting on the end of Maryland's bench was priceless.

Anyone else catch that?

01/05/2016 - 5:04pm Well if you are pretty sure,

Well if you are pretty sure, then I feel a lot better about it now.  Especially if he was probably given the ok.

12/02/2015 - 6:52pm I respectfully disagree on

I respectfully disagree on many points. (I do enjoy most of your posts!) 

If Harbaugh happily knew his DC was interviewing during the week of The Game, then it's not the Harbaugh we think we know.  

Harbaugh's circumstances in SF were in no way similar to the circumstances here and now.

There is no way that contemplating a major job and geographic transition takes 0% of your energy, time and attention away from the rest of your work.  

People are not upset that he is going.  They are upset at the timing and circumstances.  


12/02/2015 - 6:44pm Yeah, I just keep thinking of

Yeah, I just keep thinking of Harbaugh's face during the post-game presser and wonder if he was thinking, "our defense just got their pants pulled down all game long, and it's because my defensive coordinator was already loading up the moving van." just does my nut in.  

12/02/2015 - 6:24pm I know a few have mentioned

I know a few have mentioned this, but it really frustrates me that Durkin was deciding on this during the week of The Game.  Even if the interview didn't last that long, you have to know he spent considerable time thinking about his options, talking to his family, etc.

It had to affect the game plan.  

And I wonder if Harbaugh is upset about it.  Not that everyone is going to stick around forever, but to me I don't think Durkin handled this correctly.
