College football has not seen others succeed with less around them after having been broken by the coaching staff, OL, coaching changes and switch to WR in their career. Gardner has some transitive blame, but methinks the events of his career have been largely forgotten by those that share your opinion. 

11/05/2018 - 7:20pm I stuck with my 11-1, conf…

I stuck with my 11-1, conf champs, final 4 appearance prediction after the ND game and have had an inexplicable confidence in the teams ability leading me to not really even be that nervous before games this year, which is odd for me. I can't help but wonder if some of that blind optimism was out of bare necessity for survival, but I could get used to this. 

10/29/2018 - 10:01pm This is underrated.

This is underrated.

10/18/2018 - 6:02pm How can we expect Shea to…

How can we expect Shea to see it live when Kirk can't even see it on replay? Better question I guess is how did Kirk play QB?

10/12/2018 - 6:17pm Amen to this. We are a dying…

Amen to this. We are a dying breed around these parts apparently. 

10/12/2018 - 6:16pm You can not possibly compare…

You can not possibly compare those situations and come away with the opinion you have unless you are a troll.

10/12/2018 - 6:14pm Logic fail.

Logic fail.

10/12/2018 - 6:13pm I disagree with your opinion…

I disagree with your opinion so your opinion is bad and you should apparently feel bad but not really. I think I am the only one left who still cares about that hit job especially compared to the state media letting other scandals go. Oh well.

10/11/2018 - 11:24pm Add on top of this that the…

Add on top of this that the Badger fans always travel very well but the Brewers are in the NLCS this weekend at Miller Park. And though this is a Michigan blog as a Brewer fan I am absolutely freaking stoked out of my mind to type that.

 

Probably more tickets flooding the market from fans who had planned the trip but are now selling. I suppose that's still a small number compared to the M fans for reasons you already mentioned though.

10/09/2018 - 10:25am I agree 100 % as long as we…

I agree 100 % as long as we can throw in the "no discipline for coaches murdering video guys with negligence" caveat.

10/03/2018 - 11:01pm Leave this shit conference.

Leave this shit conference.

10/03/2018 - 12:04am I full heartedly disagree…

I full heartedly disagree. They helped set our program back 10 years with terrible journalism and failing to understand or put any effort into understanding what a countable hour is.

Is noone else outraged at the lack of coverage for actual scandals at the other state school in the last 10 years?

How quickly everyone forgets.

I respect and am thankful for the many posts you share on this blog and this is not just a hot take aimed at you but imo everyone with this opinion "is bad and should feel bad" or whatever the cool kids are saying these days. 

10/02/2018 - 3:52pm Shoes were sold but it was…

Shoes were sold but it was by a player without remaining eligibility so all is good.  Because we are Michigan and get the book thrown at us for stretching while other programs run rampant with abuse scandals, we had to get all the equipment together and prove it wasn't current players selling shoes in what undoubtedly would be a program-rocking scandal in this conference.

10/02/2018 - 3:49pm Bridges didn't play for…

Bridges didn't play for Michigan.

09/28/2018 - 2:55pm I get what you're saying but…

I get what you're saying but considering the fewer amount of games i think it's worth discussion as compared to number of fights at baseball and basketball games. I say this without having any data and using anecdotes only. 

09/28/2018 - 2:51pm I stand with you comrade …

I stand with you comrade (except in rare instances involving cats and toddlers where I can at least here arguments without assuming the adversary is insane).

09/28/2018 - 2:33pm So is this a football thing?…

So is this a football thing? Considering going to Wrigley for one game playoff should my crew tie the cubs and I've never been surrounded by rival fans at away game since my experiences are similar to M games at NW.

09/28/2018 - 2:30pm Toilet paper over/under…

Toilet paper over/under debate has surely led to fisticuffs as well.

09/27/2018 - 8:03pm Underrated and I lost my bet…

Underrated and I lost my bet on the under for how long it would take to get this one. Bravo.

09/27/2018 - 7:57pm Underrated and surprised it…

Underrated and surprised it took that long haha well played 

09/27/2018 - 7:45pm Username checks out?

Username checks out?

09/21/2018 - 11:50am Is Winovich being so awesome…

Is Winovich being so awesome causing it to appear as though Gary is not as dominant in pass rush? Just a thought I had. Sometimes comparison affects perception, not sure that's the case. More likely scenario is Gary has a bum shoulder again and is playin thru it cuz he is a badass teammate. That's what I'm going with.

09/19/2018 - 11:22am Last time I had a similar…

Last time I had a similar situation I parked in a hotel parking lot and got a cab to the golf course. This was before uber and took forever to get a cab on game morning, fyi ... I assume it would be better now.

09/13/2018 - 12:13pm That should probably now say…

That should probably now say 2nd most negative alumnus. Or does he still top Braylon? 

09/13/2018 - 10:50am Next question.

Next question.

09/12/2018 - 2:46pm And also why have they not…

And also why have they not been recruiting a ton of OTs?

09/12/2018 - 2:41pm I would be interested in…

I would be interested in this along with like how that happens and if it is feasible. Financial implications, going independent, starting a Wolverine Network, leaving the NCAA... everything is on the table.

09/11/2018 - 4:12pm It will be easier to leave…

It will be easier to leave and this would be a statement against not only MSU but also OSU, PSU and the conference itself which has been complicit. Only people we can't give the finger to on the way out is the NCAA itself, but if we start a new athletic association, I'm fine with that too, whatever the ramifications.

09/10/2018 - 12:42pm John Ross, Anthony Miller,…

John Ross, Anthony Miller, John Brown, Geronimo Allison, Taywan Taylor, Michael Gallup, Chris Godwin, Calvin Ridley, Jake Butt, John Kelly damn thats all wrs til the last two but the first 4 I mentioned are ready to go now if they're available in your league, others will take a bit of time.

AF, UK, push in M game (38-10), Sun devils, investigators 

09/07/2018 - 2:37pm We are well aware of the…

We are well aware of the remorseless wrath a program would be faced with for practicing and stretching malpractice in the eyes of the National Complicit Athletic Association.

09/04/2018 - 9:44pm 10-2, steadily improve…

10-2, steadily improve throughout yr, defense lights out when not facing mobile qbs, offense figures it out quick, smashes weaker opponents, and hangs with stronger ones without being able to throw it deep due to protection.

09/03/2018 - 11:30pm How many of those 17 games…

How many of those 17 games was Harbaugh coaching? How many were affected by coaching transition roster issues and cratered OL recruiting? The blocked punt game. The hometown refs terrible spot game. Mich has been incredibly unlucky and has not been good enough coaching, recruiting, scheduling, administering or playing football to overcome that bad luck. But cherry picking that worthless 17 game stat without context is very simple minded unless one is just trying to find a cute and concise way to say that things have generally sucked for M football for numerous messed up reasons over the last decade plus. 

08/31/2018 - 2:02pm 38-13 blue. Everyone with…

38-13 blue. Everyone with lizard brains will then be freaking out about how good we are. In reality we will not be that good yet besides our world wrecking defense, but the season is young and we will still have time to grow into the conference winning final 4 participant we will eventually become. Enjoy it.

08/30/2018 - 6:05pm This is fun.

This is fun.

08/30/2018 - 2:47pm This is my new name for the…

This is my new name for the conference. Let's win the Big Complicit Championship!

08/30/2018 - 10:56am 38-13 M and they are lucky…

38-13 M and they are lucky to get 13. Everyone will be gleefully talking about this crazy Shea guy who shows an ability to play the qb position capably and remind us all that it is possible to enjoy life again.

I weep for your weak hapless souls.

Open thine eyes and allow oneself to see.

08/29/2018 - 11:51am I don't remember anyone…

I don't remember anyone opining for Ulizio. That was a wholly embraced and completely understood "we are fucked" situation.

08/29/2018 - 11:23am I refuse to jump off this…

I refuse to jump off this hype train I find myself on. I shall not look out the window as we pass this stop. Nothing to see here, carry on.

08/27/2018 - 7:31pm Usually when I am this…

Usually when I am this optimistic I am able to check myself, step outside the box, attribute the appropriate % of homerism involved, recalculate... I just don't know anymore. 

I have a feeling this team will play with a fire we haven't seen before.

I'm all in on the hype train so what's the point in looking back?

Higdon 1350 yds 

Shea NYC invite 

Consensus #1 D with 3 AAs

Big Complicit Champs

Final 4

Let's go get it.

 

08/27/2018 - 5:46pm I feel pretty much like…

I feel pretty much like Brian does if you were to add in an impossibly illogical burning desire to fix college football by destroying our enemies cleanly and without corruption, rape, molestation, domestic violence, lying, coverups, lawyers, trustees and corrupt complicit conference officials because for some really naive reason I think it would help.

08/26/2018 - 1:05am Let's go get it. 

Let's go get it. 

08/24/2018 - 6:20pm I'd rather someone else had…

I'd rather someone else had won the job for other reasons but in regards to his ability there, things could slow down for him this year and he may take a leap at both wr and PR. Yes I was grinning while I typed that.

08/24/2018 - 2:49pm There was a thread yesterday…

There was a thread yesterday about leaving the conference. I thought it mostly in jest and didnt give it much actual thought. 

I am now officially embarrassed to be associated with this conference. Edit to say I am also embarrassed it took this long. And to where my original point was going... I support leaving the Big Ten 100%. We are better off independent if that is the only other option. Just in case Warde and co are reading this.

08/24/2018 - 1:44am Mobilizing forces in WI as…

Mobilizing forces in WI as we speak. Make sure they can't get ya from behind as those remorseless empty souled mouth breathers are known to do. No better day to die, sir!

08/24/2018 - 1:22am I just posted in another…

I just posted in another thread questioning how this is even possible and wondering if the same would happen here. I'm losing faith in humanity. Joke is on me that I had any left.

08/24/2018 - 1:15am In regards to cultism or…

In regards to cultism or tribalism I am wondering how that is possible. I have to believe that if this happened at Michigan, there would be massive outrage internally, right?

I mean, if the exact same thing happened at M next month with Harbaugh, Manuel, Pick an Assistant, President, Board... I would denounce the university and spend the rest of my life rooting against them harder than I've rooted for them. Right? I sure feel like I would.

Would I be blinded by homerism and move to victim bashing, reporter bashing? Am I high and mighty to think this wouldn't happen at M? Are we actually better people than other fanbases? How is this possible? 

Sports is such a great escape from life sometimes. This and everything else lately is only serving to confuse and frustrate the shit outta me.

08/23/2018 - 1:36pm I had this crazy ass idea to…

I had this crazy ass idea to start a new organization to compete with and eventually take down the NCAA. This could be a more feasible way to get the ball rolling haha.

08/23/2018 - 12:32pm Idk this whole way of…

Idk this whole way of looking at this just rubs me the wrong way... technology and medicine have advanced and lead to a world where half of us probably won't die from a plague. Ok great. How do we go about judging the moral compass and general good or badness of a society? There has always been good and bad. Frankly im struggling with how to say what I'm trying to say... Best of luck to all of us.
