 haven’t started season 2 of American vandal.  It’s up next. And I felt the same about season 1. About 4 episodes in I decided it is fantastic.

03/01/2019 - 4:02pm It's an overstatement to say…

It's an overstatement to say he wasn't used properly "at all," but it's accurate to say that he and other skill position guys were not used properly for too high a percentage of the time.

Perhaps he'll land at SDSU. It appears to be pretty damn soft.

02/05/2019 - 4:35pm Looking forward to a day…

Looking forward to a day when we stop talking about Harbaugh a some mysterious wizard who has a secret cache of spells, potions and football plays that he doesn't expose to the enemy.

There is no such cache.

He's a regular guy who also happens to be a very good football coach.

02/04/2019 - 4:40pm You've missed the point…

You've missed the point entirely. Nothing wrong w/ supporting former players, even one who didn't do jack squat in the game or all season.

The reason it's pathetic is that it's an obvious attempt at replying to the forthcoming UM tweets about Brady, as if there is anything remotely comparable about the two situations.

That's why it's a Little Brother move.

Purdue to this. I couldn't Purdue more. 

Purdue you Purdue comedy for a living?

01/31/2019 - 5:16pm There's no absolute free…

There's no absolute free speech right inside Crisler.

The nauseating part is the hypocrisy. OSU fans spew vile garbage routinely. 

I'm not saying that to justify UM fans returning the favor (and personally prefer that UM fans be above spewing utter garbage), but it's ridiculous for OSU players/parents/fans to act like UM is a bad guy and OSU is somehow above such behavior.

That was Ms. Wesson's implied claim.

This reply is a lock for 1st-ballot entry into the MGoBlog Hall of Fame. 

01/16/2019 - 2:37pm Not sure he can be coached…

Not sure he can be coached up further, but that's the best place for him if he's not reached his full potential.

01/10/2019 - 4:02pm Fair point, but I don't…

Fair point, but I don't think Barrett was "great" either. 

We definitely should have beat him the year he didn't get the first down, and we were very close in 2017. 

Take Meyer out of the equation, and I don't worry too much. I'm not saying we'll win v. OSU automatically or anything like that. I just don't go into the game with dread. 

Haskins was different. We knew that, if he was on and we didn't game plan for that offense on a good day and couldn't get pressure on him, he could throw darts all over the field.

Barrett could never do that on his best days.

01/10/2019 - 3:57pm It's a Revolution! or not.

It's a Revolution! or not.

I'm willing to try out any reputable new blood at this point. 

01/10/2019 - 2:24pm I don't care if they have…

I don't care if they have Hurts. He may be better than Martell, but he's not a great QB. 

01/07/2019 - 10:09pm Biggest disappointment is…

Biggest disappointment is watching the Clemson defense show man and shift to something else. 

Really basic defensive concept (mixing and switching looks) has fooled one of the best QBs in the country. 

Did we try anything like that versus OSU?

01/07/2019 - 2:29pm Cool tangential fact of the…

Cool tangential fact of the day: I have saved a Thano's Lamplighter take-out menu w/ Gary Grant's signature (we were there at the same time back in the day).

01/07/2019 - 2:27pm Mattison is/was a great…

Mattison is/was a great coach, but, whatever he was, he was part of a staff whose defense got curb stomped by OSU this year. If change can improve on that, then I'm ok w/ change. 

Switching allegiances is no big deal in sports/biz, especially for a promotion like this. We'd be cheering w/ open arms if we picked up a coach we liked from a rival. 

01/02/2019 - 1:16pm No disagreement regarding…

No disagreement regarding pace and lack of tempo package, but my impression v. Florida was that Harbaugh did this on purpose to get the game over. The writing was on the wall by the end of the 3rd quarter. 

We weren't ready or willing to play. Florida was ready and more than willing. 

Slowing the game down avoided a massacre the likes we hadn't seen for . . .  a month, and I think that's what Harbaugh was doing.

Sad, but that's what it looked like. 

01/02/2019 - 12:48pm I watched a bunch of bowl…

I watched a bunch of bowl games. Only a few teams looked flat and unmotivated, starting w/ Michigan. 

01/01/2019 - 8:04pm I know. That's the point. 

I know. That's the point. 

01/01/2019 - 7:54pm If OSU can keep good…

If OSU can keep good distance from Washington, and we get any goodwill b/c of missing key defensive players (particularly Bush, who was very sorely missed), we'll be 12-13. 

Otherwise, 15.

I have a feeling plenty of voters (other coaches, writers, whoever) look for reasons to punish/dump on Harbaugh.

12/30/2018 - 7:49pm . . . will sit out a 2nd…

. . . will sit out a 2nd tier bowl game and be judged by self-righteous keyboard warriors.

12/29/2018 - 8:46pm Yes.

Yes.

Thought: This is the dumbest, least considered post in the history of MGoBlog

12/29/2018 - 4:34pm It's not hard. "Still…

It's not hard. "Still processing loss and will evaluate everything about team when back home with time to give it real thought."

In other words, don't say yes or no, just put it off. That's easy.

12/29/2018 - 4:31pm That's bad, not just b/c we…

That's bad, not just b/c we need to make changes, but worse that he'd say such a thing this soon after a game without giving real thought to the issue.

12/29/2018 - 4:16pm Huh?

His pay is directly…

Huh?

His pay is directly relevant to his value as a coach. The results are not consistent w/ what expectations are and should be for someone at the top end of the pay scale. 

That's an objective concept, having nothing to do w/ inferiority complex of the commenter.

12/29/2018 - 3:56pm Why? 

He's not gonna leave…

Why? 

He's not gonna leave or get fired, but it's a fair-game question.

12/29/2018 - 3:37pm Funny bc I never express my…

Funny bc I never express my opinion about Bo here b/c the average person would lose their mind.

You only need to know about 2 games to know that Bo was good but not great. UM v. ND when he kicked to Rocket Ismail not once (dumb) but TWICE (un-fucking-believable).

And the Mich. v. Miami game where he turtled in 4th quarter, rolling out the red carpet for Miami to come back.

12/29/2018 - 3:32pm No. 

No. 

12/29/2018 - 3:30pm Nobody worth a damn would…

Nobody worth a damn will come unless Harbaugh agrees to relinquish control like in a normal HC/OC situation. 

But that's not gonna happen w/ Harbaugh. 

12/22/2018 - 3:09pm That's all of Paw Paw and…

That's all of South Haven, Paw Paw, and their cousins visiting for the holidays 

12/21/2018 - 6:38pm We offer scholarships…

We offer scholarships. Tennessee seems to be offering $cholar$hip$.

The new Ole Mi$$

12/21/2018 - 1:31pm Tennessee is the new Ole…

Tennessee is the new Ole Miss. 

Only one way to recruit like they are with their track record over the past decade, and it works.

12/19/2018 - 2:05pm So you're saying that, in 1…

So you're saying that, in 1-2 years, we'll improve to losing to OSU by only 20 points?

[that's a joke; ease up]

12/19/2018 - 2:02pm I wish I had as much free…

I wish I had as much free time as you seem to have. Congrats on your success, family money, or whatever you did to have the life you've made for yourself.

Meanwhile, back to the salt mine for me.

12/19/2018 - 1:57pm My issue is not w/ the run…

My issue is not w/ the run/pass ratio. It's with timing/downs (as you note) and overall style not taking advantage of athletes downfield and in more creative ways.

12/19/2018 - 1:03pm Easily the most frustrating…

Easily the most frustrating ongoing thing about this team. I don't care about Harbaugh's style. We have studs all over the field and play like it's 1985.

I'm not talking about going spread or anything like that. There were (and are) plenty of regular pro-style offenses that still toss the ball all over the field. 

12/19/2018 - 1:00pm Why the F should that be…

Why the F should that be deleted? 

It's relevant regardless of our class.

I cannot believe how ridiculous people on this Board are, as if it is some kind of sacred, safe space. 

If you don't like the thread, don't click on it.

Their tweets say "Welcome to Michigan . . . for two years."

How's this for positivity . . . 

The Lions have become the NFL version of the Wolverines?

12/18/2018 - 12:31pm The pit is not complete. …

The pit is not complete.  Give it a couple weeks until we lose to a lesser team due to our gutted roster having to play a lesser team with revenge on its mind.  

12/18/2018 - 11:40am Imagine being that person…

Imagine being that person and then being d-baggy enough to click on this thread and then even d-baggier enough to post a dopey (ie, low-quality snark) reply.  

 

12/13/2018 - 7:45pm Buh-bye.

I cannot imagine…

Buh-bye.

I cannot imagine that the coaches lack motivation not to get curb stomped again by OSU, but, if they do, perhaps losing him will help.

Get a life 

11/26/2018 - 6:11pm I don't hate you, but you…

I don't hate you, but you need to see a doctor ASAP.

There is no combination of losses that would put us in the championship rounds. 

WE GOT CURB STOMPED ON A NATIONAL STAGE

COMPLETE EMBARRASSMENT

I'm still a die-hard fan, and I still think this team is damn good, but that's just the bottom line. Full stop.

11/25/2018 - 3:45pm You're delusional. Not about…

You're delusional. Not about the refs treating us more favorably or at least not not-favorably. They don't think in terms of owing anyone anything over a period of years, and they certainly don't give a crap about playoff chances as it relates to how they officiate.

For the most part, ref bad calls average out to even over time. We've had bad games and good games. Our bad games have been some of the highest profile matchups and with highest consequences from the bad calls, but that's it. 

Stop watching cable news. There aren't conspiracies everywhere.

11/25/2018 - 3:08pm Is this real?

Is this real?

Stick with religion (tribalism, false premises, and delusions) and go to bed. 

11/25/2018 - 11:59am This is different. 

We’ve…

This is different. 

We’ve been killed by a specific type of offensive attack that’ exposes the weaknesses of Brown’s system. He doesn’t seem to do anything to address it.

Indiana exposed the cracks, and nothing changed.  Nor has it changed from year to year. Gameplan to slow the rush.  Let speeed demons run crosses. With enough time, one is routinely wide open and scampering. 

This was our best defense in years, and it was torched. Urban didn’t do anything fancy. He did what we expected. That’s on Brown.  

11/21/2018 - 8:40pm Trying to explain CRISP to…

Trying to explain CRISP to someone who didn’t have to experience it is difficult to do in a way that comes close to really conveying what it was like. Starting with the dopey meaning of the acronym, then the ridiculous lines, then the absurdity of the process itself.
