Winning the game isn't happening and the schedule is part of the reason why.

Every season at least a handful of our starters are "banged up" entering OSU.

We play the toughest schedule in the nation but refuse to use anyone but starters.

Every year end of season our starters are injured and gassed.

 

12/30/2018 - 1:21pm Exactly, people on the board…

Exactly, people on the board think we were at Alabama levels before falling off to where we are now. Statistically, Jim is above the rest of coaches, but below Bo. (I ran some numbers).

We have won only 7 major bowls in 50 years. Only 64% of the seasons in those 50 years ended up with a 3 loss or better season. So this season is pretty much "average" for Michigan.

12/27/2018 - 2:54pm For the 4 teams in the…

For the 4 teams in the playoffs and OSU in the Grand-daddy Rose they are meaningful.

Yeah, our bowls suck because we cannot win the Big Ten.

If we were in playoff or the Rose people would be excited. 2nd 3rd 4th place bowls always suck.

Just like 70% of the last three weeks of NFL games suck because who wants to see out-of-the-playoff teams play each other? Cowboys Giants anyone? Lions Packers? Falcons vs Bucs?

12/17/2018 - 8:21pm This is just going to get…

This is just going to get worse.

The NCAA needs to pay players. Both parties need to sign a 4 year contract. P

Same with basketball. No 1 and done.

No more giving out too many scholarships. No more transfers.

 

 

12/12/2018 - 12:12am Who cares I am really sick…

Who cares I am really sick of these "5 stars" hype. Like they are gods or something. If they want to go to Michigan then go.

12/08/2018 - 11:43pm I don't know why there is…

I don't know why there is all the crying here. I am a life long Michigan fan but our football program has never been "elite".

We have had one NC in what - 1/2 a century?

Bo has been our best coach in that time an he never won a NC and also lost 1/2 his games to OSU and 1/2 his bowl games.

We are a great program at a great school. Beilein hasn't won a NC either.

I am glad we have these quality coaches that excel with what they have that I would feel proud to end a son or grandson to play for.

 

12/04/2018 - 8:51am I'll have to agree with this…

I'll have to agree with this.

OSU has been reloading coaches and players all of this century.

I assume this will stay the same until proven otherwise.

Maybe we just need to get better instead of hope other programs fall apart.

12/03/2018 - 12:00pm There is a lot wrong with…

There is a lot wrong with the Panthers.

New ownership.

Team getting long in the tooth at a lot of positions.

Olson is one - been injured 2 years - now again - probably a career end.

Lots of starters on final year of contract.

Newton a dual-threat QB that no longer runs and has average accuracy.

 

12/02/2018 - 7:05pm Was better. With the…

Was better. With the injuries and people sitting out - do we see October Michigan or November Michigan?

12/02/2018 - 7:01pm If you send me your credit…

If you send me your credit card number, date and code - I will book you a room.

12/02/2018 - 5:31pm I agree, Clemson and…

I agree, Clemson and Oklahoma play no one.

It's been the same top 4 teams for almost a decade.

Make the top 8 play each other for a National Championship.

It would be Bama vs UCF, Clemson vs Michigan, ND vs OSU, OK & Georgia.

Those would be good games!

 

12/02/2018 - 9:12am ^^^This^^^

The Peach, Gator…

^^^This^^^

The Peach, Gator and Outback bowls are what you get when you are a middling Big Ten team. We didn't even win our division, much less the conference championship. At these bowls you play a middling SEC team with regional interest which are South Carolina, Florida and Mississippi State.

This is why we keep playing in the same bowls against the same teams.

Until we beat OSU and win the Big Ten we will always be in Bowl purgatory.

Football went even faster this year, it seems.

Hard to believe it's over.

 

11/29/2018 - 8:21pm Yep, now we know what the…

Yep, now we know what the Tar Heels felt - expected a good game and probably a road win based upon last year and a -2 kenpom. Then they get blown out and are now questioning their worth and the coach and fan base are apoplectic.

11/29/2018 - 7:21am We don't play OSU until the…

We don't play OSU until the end of January so that doesn't make sense.

11/28/2018 - 7:24am Not sure about this…

Not sure about this obsession with the offense. It played well enough to win the game.

The D had two of the linemen playing injured. This led to no QB pressure. With no pressure, one of the top QBs in the nation shredded the defense. It exposed our younger secondary to a situation they could not handle. We also lost the best LB in football halfway through the game.

Games are won and lost in the trenches, we had no D line for the game.

11/27/2018 - 9:46pm REALITY

Any other two teams…

REALITY

Any other two teams get destroyed by Alabama or Clemson and they get yet another rematch.

I'd rather go Peach or Rose that get stomped 100-14 by Alabama or Clemson. OSU will get stomped too.

11/23/2018 - 2:38pm We are going to get down to…

We are going to get down to the red zone.

The key is to not play conservative in the red zone and inexplicably drop passes, do false starts and other minor mistakes.

We have to be up by 14 at the half before all of the 2nd half voodoo and bad referee calls start happening.

 

11/21/2018 - 12:42pm Bank on Martell coming in if…

Bank on Martell coming in if we shut down the passing game.

Our D has to prep for pro-pass offense, as the article covers, and an option run QB.

11/20/2018 - 2:29pm They look like cousins off…

They look like cousins off the same side of the family stump.

11/20/2018 - 2:27pm OSU matches up well against…

OSU matches up well against Michigan's downhill running offense

OSU fans tend to forget that Bosa is gone and early season run D stats no longer count.

11/20/2018 - 1:50pm Urban isn't paid to coach,…

Urban isn't paid to coach, but to be whining at the refs the entire game.

Expect a 5-1 margin against Michigan on holding calls. OSU linemen will give "great protection".

Expect big UM defensive stops to be whistled about 3 times for pass interference. OSU will never get called - they have excellent coverage.

Expect phantoms everywhere. Phantom catches in bounds, TDs, defensive holds and of course phantom first downs.

Expect the announcers after many of these calls to start using teams like "unfortunate break" for Michigan or "borderline" or "could go either way".

Expect the refs to take a loooooong time to spot the ball and start play if the OSU defense is not set.

Expect a roughing the passer call at least once but never against OSU.

Expect a key Michigan defensive player to be out for targeting early.

This is what I expect to see every time The Game is in the toilet bowl - a lot of shit calls.

We are going to see a lot of Martell next week once Meyer watches the film.

So are we Alabama spotting an inferior team, nearly tied at half, or are we making trip plans for Tampa?

Rusing Rutger....I can't wait to see that.

Otherwise - QB hit so hard he runs into own end zone like Forrest Gump. A Reverse Rutger.

11/09/2018 - 12:21pm I live down in the SE, the…

I live down in the SE, the entire East Coast from NY to FLA to Tennessee to Louisiana think SEC and ACC are the top conferences.

They believe any mid-level team SEC/ACC can beat the top Big 10, Big 12, Pac 12 teams any given neutral field.

The SEC and ACC have won 15/20 BCS championships. The blowouts of Big 10/Big 12/Pac 12 in semifinals the last few years has added to this perception.

Until the Big 10 can win National Championships every other year, this perception will not change.

Furthermore, all of the national press and sports network people and most of the bowl games and their committees are on the East coast and are mostly all ACC and SEC alumni top to bottom of the organizations - and that is why you get such bias.

We are already #4 the next two games are cake - the GOAL should be NO INJURIES.

Starters out 10 minutes in the game after we build 24-0 leads.

One missed block could lead to QB with fractured neck as we have learned...

Every dope head I have ever met was an underachieving loser.

Your body filters a beer in 30 minutes. A toke can take 8 hours - worse if the dealer laces it.

That was Nebraska chance to make it a game. Now it will be 23-7 at half.

That won't happen. No way bama and Clemson give up 1-2 spots unless they lose.

Only way bama drops lower than 4 on a loss is if Georgia destroys Kentucky.
