Also, you can add the best D2 college in Michigan (Hillsdale) is 6-1 with their only loss coming in OT at Michigan Tech earlier this year. They have a showdown coming with Tiffin in a few weeks.

Paul Chryst was a game managing shit-show tonight. Harbaugh was not.

Surprised Sparty has shown two trick plays today with Michigan up next.

Poor execution excuses are things that should be only valid in very limited situations. I think Don Brown had some interesting personnel and formations that were kind of, um, out there early Saturday. However, Brian was spot on with his criticism of Gil and the crossing route with Kinnel of how the coach called the right scheme and it wasn’t executed correctly. 

However, contrary to what Sexy Al and Clapping Hoke think, a longer term issue with execution is not on the players at all. Either the coaches are not teaching the plays and concepts well or they’re presenting a terrible game plan.

I’ve only been to a handful of Michigan football games, yet two I’ve been at made this list: 09 Indiana and 13 Akron. I must not have very good luck. 

09/29/2018 - 11:56pm He blew through two time…

He blew through two time outs before the 4th down play. If he keeps both and they still get stopped short, he would’ve had all three and may have been able to get the ball back. Oh and giving the ball to Sanders was idiotic.

Proud of the comeback. Not impressed with the sloppiness, lathargic start and penalties (minus the Higdon ‘thing’).

Can’t wait for the Harbaugh and Brown apologists to explain this one and how they’re still the coaching staff Michigan needs.

Will Michigan put 79 on them this time?

Reminds me of a bachelor party I went to and one member of our party fought two guys of another bachelor party about which bank they worked at regarding how Chase was better then PNC and vice versa. Seriously.

About time.

But did you tweet at him? That’s what really counts. 

09/17/2018 - 3:58pm Did Hoover Street not go to…

Did Hoover Street not go to the Akron game? That has to be the worst victory in Michigan Stadium history. I was at the game and there was no part overly enjoyable. That was also Dave Brandon skywriting day. 

09/17/2018 - 11:21am Watch carefully at the end…

Watch carefully at the end. Devin is clearly agitated immediately following the end of the play and it appears the same ref runs over to confront Devin! The sun belt should fire that guy.

Still trying to run too many formations and concepts. I would have thought by year 4 someone would figure out this isn’t the NFL.

Air raid from pass pro. We need to work on the latter. It’s pretty clear we can grind teams, but if we’re going to win anything of significance we’re going to need to throw passes from the pocket.

Paw Paw Brewery, though exceeedingly small, would’ve been a solid place to check out as well. Thanks for the write up.

Honestly this was more disheartening than I thought. Too cute yet again with so many formations and schemes that are not the bread and butter of this team. Where was a basic draw play at?

Lol. I’m 99% sure he used it for Chris Davis and Adam Dunn too.

I hope Rod yelled “Country Strong!” as Mario socked him repeatedly in the jaw.

Who asks these dipshit questions about “what does prepared look like?”  

09/05/2018 - 9:33am Dismiss all members of the…
  1. Dismiss all members of the offensive staff
  2. Go out and find an offensive coordinator that has had college football success and give them full control.  It would not be a deal breaker for me but with all the high schools running variations of the spread, it is probably time to go to it in some fashion full time.  However, the most important thing is to get a plan and stick with it
  3. Advise Don Brown that some aspects of his play calling could be better.  IMO he's done an A- job but not having any spies on Wimbush (that I noticed) and having McCray cover Barkley last year was embarssing
  4. The last is the most important but probably the most difficult: The arrogance of the program has to go away.  Michigan has tried for too long to to try and re-create a world in which it is 1985 still when they have the best players, the best coaches and the best scheme.  Both the Hoke hire and the Harbaugh hire have both been for this reason.  Now, Harbaugh actually has the skill to possibly make this happen, but with each gut-punching loss it is looking less likely.  Having Hoke ramble on about how "This is Michigan blah blah blah" and Harbaugh's "Who's got it better than us" make me cringe.  Michigan has to find some way to get a massive "chip" on their shoulder.  I know some of you won't like this, but I respect the fact MSU is pissed off 24/7.  Even when they've had far superior teams to Michigan, they still find a way to keep the underdog mentality.  
  5. Lastly, recruiting and development. Sneak in a spy to Wisconsin and find out what their secret is, especially with the Oline.  I suspect it is the fact they have had consistent coaching for years, continue to run the same offense and are not forced to put anyone on the field before they are ready.  It is a bit surprising to see Michigan, throughout the Harbaugh tenure, have to put people on the field (Oline, QB) that have no business being out there, whether it is because they aren't talented enough or should be bulking up.  How you feel about this team if Mason Cole were the LT? That should have been the reality and not wishful thinking.  I understand transfers are going to continue to rise, and you're never going to recruit a team of choir boys, but the focus should be on finding kids in recruiting that are comfortable with buying into the system and being prepared to red-shirt.  Also, too many home run swings in recruiting without a backup plan.  The one thing I actually liked about Hoke was his recruiting philosophy:  If you commit to Michigan, visits to other colleges ends.  This is strict and not everyone will like it, but to me it is a good way to keep from getting left in the dark but late cycle de-commits, which really seems to have hurt Michigan recently.

Just my two cents.  

09/03/2018 - 5:38pm Here’s the big difference:…

Here’s the big difference: It was .1% Rich Rod’s fault Sheridan was one of the two best QB’s he had in 08. It’s 99.9% Harbaugh’s fault there is not even one average Big Ten capable tackle on the roster for 2018. 

09/02/2018 - 10:13am 7-5. We’ve become Tennessee…

7-5. We’ve become Tennessee north in every way, shape and form. Every team with an above average Dline is going to pummel us. 

09/02/2018 - 8:57am Perhaps because they had a 2…

Perhaps because they had a 2-1 turnover to touchdown rate?

09/02/2018 - 8:50am I sincerely hope the next…

I sincerely hope the next coach has never met Bo. If they have never heard of him, that would be even better. Someone needs to get rid of this stench of arrogance inside the program, and it needs to be someone from way outside the program. Granted, 1/4 of the people will flip out it’s not a “Michigan Man” but continuing to run this program like it’s 1985 where Michigan thinks they have the best talent, coaches and scheme which live in a never ending bubble of hype needs to stop. 

09/01/2018 - 11:11pm The most overrated coaching…

The most overrated coaching staff in the country. It’s not even close. 

We need a head coach that’s not going around proclaiming “who’s got it better than us” when we never win anything of importance. Michigan is doomed to forever medicority as long as this joke of an Oline continues along with the arrogance of this program. 

09/01/2018 - 10:43pm Arrogance. People shit on…

Arrogance. People shit on MSU on this board all the time, but look at them. They walk around with a huge chip on their shoulder 24/7 and it takes next to nothing to get them even more pissed off. Like them, hate them, hate me, but you can’t argue that they are not soft, especially comes to rivalry and big games. Michigan caves at the sight of any big game and in my opinion it’s been perpetrated by the former coach walking around saying “this is Michigan blah blah blah” and the current coach, who took over a program that’s won nothing recently (and nothing himself at the collegiate level) telling everyone “who’s got it better than us!” Well Jim, everyone does right now and you like a higher paid version of Hoke with a bigger mouth.

Zordich might be my favorite coach on staff. His unit performs at a high level and you can’t beat his quotes.

NW Purdue is interesting. Both teams with good moments early in the game. 

08/27/2018 - 1:48pm I personally would’ve saved…

I personally would’ve saved this column until after the season to see if it went well or not, but I get the sentiment. To me, this season seems like crossroads for Michigan  - both for Harbaugh and the program in general. I understand Michigan probably will never operate a ‘win at all costs’ football program, but damnit it’s depressing year in and year out to get hyped up for whatever reason then still end the season with an ass kicking from OSU. Maybe it is time to treat football like an Iowa fan. 

08/27/2018 - 11:35am Omg, last thing we need. 

Omg, last thing we need.

Clowns wear vanilla body spray? 

08/21/2018 - 8:59am 1-10 the ND game is probably…

1-10 the ND game is probably a 12. Same with MSU and OSU. If this staff, with this talent level, can’t solve the ranked team, road game riddle I’m not sure how much optimism there can be for the future. 

08/16/2018 - 6:55am I took it to mean ND fan’s…

I took it to mean ND fans feel what’s coming back on their o-line is just as good as what Michigan is bringing back on their d-line. They must either love Mo Hurst or they’re delusional. I’ll lean towards the latter. 

08/14/2018 - 10:44am Yeah, I’m not going to get…

Yeah, I’m not going to get excited about this one unless Michigan pummels OSU and PSU and something happens to Meyer. 

08/13/2018 - 8:42pm 5 losses last year. 

13…

5 losses last year. 

13 turnovers in those game. 

That shit can’t happen anymore.
