12/18/2018 - 10:04pm Back in the 90s, my high…

Back in the 90s, my high school team played an already known to be OSU-bound junior RB in the state semifinals. He didn’t do much against us, we won, and went on to win state.

The next year his team won state, but he went on to an unspectacular career at OSU despite being a consensus All-American Prep and #1 player in Ohio. He was part of a top 5 OSU class under Cooper, right as Tressel was pulling the sweater vest over his shoulders.

He never saw the field at RB, became a DB, then hit hurt. Then I think he transferred to UC. 

People need to stop with the Groundhog Apocalypse Day shit. In those days, we were supposed to get all kinds of talent. Plenty of them flamed out and transferred, or simply were never as good as advertised. That same 1999 class had UM at 1. And what did Tony Pape do as an All-American prep? He was drafted in round 7 with Navarre and Drake. BJ Askew was the eventual star of that class...a full back. 

12/18/2018 - 1:13pm Are you mad at him for…

Are you mad at him for trying to pursue his dream? He was second in the BIG in rushing behind J Taylor, right? 

Do you think he cannot find a place as well as Rutger’s Gus Edwards did with Ravens?

As far as I can tell, every team in the league uses at least one RB on nearly every snap. The idea that the RB is no longer useful is like saying traditional TEs are no longer a thing, either. 

If anything, he can be a solid number two back on quite a few teams with not real good stars or not good depth: Colts, Jets, Bills, Dolphins, Giants begins Barkley, 49ers, Lions, Packers, Texans, Raiders, Chargers (he’s as good as Ekeler). None of these teams have reliable stars, thus relying on a stable. Higdon has god vision and leg drive. He has quick bursts, and solid lateral ability. 

Plus, now a bunch of young players can maybe, possibly, doubtfully get time (if only Evans and Wilson weren’t so trusted by JH).

12/18/2018 - 2:56am I partially agree, but your…

I partially agree, but your account doesn’t take into account talent. I don’t care about Jake McMurry’s ability to play through pain. Unless he runs the best routes, gets open, and makes fantastic catches and YAC, his better work ethic shouldn’t win time over a guy like Black.

I have no idea if it does, but I’d hate to be a starter and have to completely work back through fourth string.

Sure, count loafs. Rob Marinelli motivated Bears defense with loafs—if you loaf, you pay the price. But he was not replacing Urlacher and Briggs with practice squadders.

Internet speculation plus bored fans=middle of the night insomnia fillers. Let’s just go to bed and wait until Wednesday for real news.

12/17/2018 - 7:02pm Noncoach can save every…

Noncoach can save every young man from himself. The young man has to have a big say in whether he can live up to what is expected of him. I’m a college professor—I reach out and attempt to help every student who takes my classes. But some kids think that the easy treatment they got in high school still exists with college professors. It does not. Some of them get more help simply because they seek it and they earn it by following directions.

Way too many kids theink that our printed and lectured directions are suggestions, not requirements. So I am “gone” take Hudson and Walker’s poor tweet language as an example of their lack of a desire to live up to coach expectations.

12/14/2018 - 8:40am In football, that’s a lingo…

In football, that’s a lingo that flies. Why be so sensitive? I’m as “PC” as one can be, but if a young man acts like an ass, and in that world that is how coaches evaluate, then he’s not humiliating the young man. The young man is humiliating himself with his actions and he’s called out on it in blunt terms. There is a reason for such bluntness—it is a macho coach letting a macho player and other macho coaches know, in macho language, how to see the player’s impact as a person on potential programs.  Ooh, yeah.

Dont endorse Brown’s dude system if you cannot handle the trenches, too.

12/14/2018 - 7:35am Yes. They are like a bipolar…

Yes. They are like a bipolar mother. I love you; I wish I never had you; I’m proud of you; your wife’s a bitch; why do you hate me; I never said that.

Best thing to do is just ignore these kind of folks.

12/13/2018 - 4:19pm What does he have to say…

What does he have to say about not being a star’s impact? Who does he credit for the development of players? From the summary, there sounds like potential bitterness from a former player. Of course players have a huge role in their own growth, and I have observed Beilein is stubborn to play players until they can do twenty backflips blindfolded, but what has Austin Davis and the Blame McLimans of the world done to prove playing time? If a coach asks for a certain thing, listen to them and do it. The more talented, The I get the leash—but he often benched Moe early in his career due to his foul troubles and would leave him there for the rest of the game. Zavier has to re-earn his position. So what does Stu actually say? The summmary is pretty vague and seemingly critical of a coach who has taken UM to two Tourney finals and more Final Fours.

12/12/2018 - 7:39am That’s my issue with how…

That’s my issue with how much adults have put the limelight on these kids to where the recruits think they are more than just an object. How many actually worry about these kids, including the kids themselves? 

My problem with the Dax Hill decommittment was his delusion that he was “keeping it 100”—but he seemed to be asking for people to not react. How have people not learned: if you make your life choices up for public consumption and you get gratification from tweeting your future, expect blow back. Free speech allows everyone to say anything, so asking to be left alone after a big commitment change is a ludicrous expectation. One cannot be authentic, make big changes, and expect no hurt feelings.

That’s the sad truth of our current social media addictions. People put too much into these kids like they’re a damn TV show. We are living The Truman Show. 

12/09/2018 - 10:22pm Olave was a 3 star freshman,…

Olave was a 3 star freshman, and he burned a senior nickel who was having a great year. We lost due to performance, not talent gap. 

It is tiring how folks think the blowout defines a talent gap. Did you folks not watch Purdue and Maryland scheme past or nearly past OSU?

12/09/2018 - 1:41pm They don’t have the best…

They don’t have the best coaches, because plenty have flopped at other places. They have the most elite payers by a landslide. They are beatable by great coaches with near similar talent. Michigan is improving its across the board talent every year. It sucks that Dax Hill committed late, and bailed fairly quickly.

12/09/2018 - 2:28am So somebody gives evidence…

So somebody gives evidence back listening the better credentials Sumlin has, and you “go there” with your credentials? If you were good at your jobs, why you milling around these here blogger parts?

Mel Tucker blew as DC in NFL but has just been handed a college team. Bad coach or fraud as Georgia DC? Locksley at MD was a failure at New Mexico and UM, but great at Bama. Fraud?

Tell us how your credentials make your already written unsupported opinions any more valid now. I’m someone who values logic and evidence over “I didn’t want to do this, but I did more than stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night” guys.

12/05/2018 - 10:04pm He played this season? …

He played this season?  Missed him in the game and thought his absence was why we beat down Sparty.

12/05/2018 - 7:46am Politics included, Baldwin…

Politics included, Baldwin is funny. One has to love people who openly discuss trying to separate a person from his views to justify his humor, which just indicates that part of what one finds funny is in political views. 

Part of what makes someone funny to people is his or her takes on culture, on how people govern based on their views of right and wrong. 

Johnathan Swift was funny because his writing trashed the British government and rich for fucking over the poor. Same with Soviet writers  who mocked Dtalon and Lenin and the groupthink of Communist bureaucracy.

You try to slight Baldwin’s humor by slighting his politics. Why? Because you don’t agree with his politics. That’s the main reason one wouldn’t find him funny—one doesn’t find his humor matches his or her view of actual life.

The sensitive Trump lovers just need to acknowledge that. You don’t like that he makes fun of your politics, but plenty of us love that he points out just how stupid and wrong Trump is.

I mean, politics aside, I am just making an argument about humor, right? There’s no suggestive value to my politcal leanings—and those leanings do not matter in how I define the world as funny or not, right? I’m just valuing a person based on who they are—not who I am and what I believe! 

So please don’t make this political when I mention that I want to mention politics. We don’t need to go in for pages debating it.

(extreme sarcasm)

12/04/2018 - 4:55pm Right, those headaches…

Right, those headaches suddenly appeared after a scandal—like what was brewing with his health at Florida. Delusionaland is cheaper than Disneyland, so there’s that.

12/03/2018 - 6:09pm I don’t see how beating a…

I don’t see how beating a lesser ranked team will detract the naysayers from saying JH cannot win big games. To them, the game is outside the CFP, so the game means very little for any of that talk. We needed to play UCF, LSU, or Georgia for this game to be the “big game.” We lose to Florida and we’ve lost to a team we’ve beaten before and the complainers will hate on JH. We win, we’ve beaten them before.

JH can win big games, but can be win the biggest? He has yet done that here, but I think he can. Losing burns me, but I know it burns JH, which is why he’s gotten where he has—and why he’s taken teams to where he has.

To counter, though, the idea that this game has much significance is based on inside the program perspectives. To the average fan, especially the quick hot take fans here: the game means less because it is not for a chance at the trophy. And from a fan perspective, this game is boring. Still, I entertained getting tickets, because I love this program. Yet, there’s no reason to invest in a game with little national fan significance. 

Lastly, the entire BIG has to win their bowls, and win big, for any rankings respect. But we were not given the chance to go up against the second or third best SEC team when we are the second best BIG team. And OSU has to play an underachieving Washington. Yeah, we lose and recruiting and next year’s early rankings will be lower. We lose and lose Shea and any other surprise goners and that’s worse. 

We win and Shea returns, then we start next year as a top 10 team. Haskins leaves and we may end up ranked ahead of OSU next preseason. 

12/03/2018 - 7:54am Yep. Let us watch the MAC…

Yep. Let us watch the MAC champ lose in first round of a 16 to 20  team playoff that includes conference champs, at least the futile debates. 

I’d rather see two less OOC games (kids have to play extra useless games now because of megaconferences), more playoffs. Pay the smaller schools more to be the warm up. 

Move up The Game week, and all other games, too. Play conference championships at end of November. Start playoffs mid December. 

Guarantee all conferences have a shot with their champs. Give top 4 or 6 seeds a first round bye. I’d rather see those small schools get paid in a playoff than as OOC practice.

12/01/2018 - 3:02pm It has taken nearly a decade…

It has taken nearly a decade for Coach B to consistently get those top 100s. He won early with guys like Stu Douglass and has to take guys like Blake McLimans. You have some seriously selective evidence. It’s as if you’re afraid to acknowledge that Coach B used to not have a chance at any top guys until he started taking early looks at the GR3s of the world who were under the radar when they committed.

12/01/2018 - 2:58pm You’re an idiot. Higdon was…

You’re an idiot. Higdon was the first commit, and he just was first team BIG. Evans has has a better career than most RB recruits, including folks like Max Martin and Kevin Grady and Derrick...what was Mr. Twinkle Toes  name?

Evans better than Sam McGuffie’s career. 

Rarely has Michigan had a first or second year RB be the workhorse. Chris Perry was not Chris Perry as an underclassmen.

Chris Howard was never the best, but he barely touched the field in first two years.

O’Maury may pan, or maybe he gets it together.

We alsonhad Ty Isaac. But sure, name all the ones that don’t work out and insult the ones who do. That’s your MO.  

11/30/2018 - 5:03pm You’re the type of guy to…

You’re the type of guy to give Jeremy Lin 15 million a year for a few games in which he played out of his mind. Cool.

DMac is going to be really good, but this next guy is better bc he threw ten good passes shit is cliche as throwing people under the bus.

Patience is a virtue that most need to learn. 

11/30/2018 - 1:01pm Honest question: you say JOK…

Honest question: you say JOK gifted “a lot of points” last year, so don’t blame the defense. Why can you not see that OSU’s defense gifted us half our points this last name? How do so quickly and inconsistently rationalize points to validate your argument? There’s no objectivity in your argument when you only talk about what Michigan has done but ignore the other team’s contributions to the games.

Inlove Harbaugh, but be real. Be honest. This team lacked an ability to consistently score TDs. We kicked too many field goals and had too many stalled drives—and if you want an elite team you need to expect and demand an elite offense—or at least a Top 12 offense that can score TDs against elite competition.

it is ludicrous that defenders of the offense keep touting 39 points as if 7 of them were not handed to us on an extremely short field on an even more extremely one play drive. 

Middling offense does not win The Game, ever. OSU gave up 51 to Maryland and 49 to Purdue. They gave up 31 to a weak Nebraska team we shit out. 

Both sides of the ball need work. I expect next fall’s growth to be apparent, as Nico, DPJ, and Black are in their third year. Gentry will improve his hands/mental blips at end of season; and DMac or Shea or both will be better. 

But we need to see growth in execution and in play call. Harbaugh has to have his players stomp teams with long plays that quickly destroy the other team’s mentally, not just look to pound them physically. He needs to work more routes in motion, more slants, more quick outs, more crossing patterns, more skinny posts, more misdirection. 

39 means nothing when the other team scored 62. Those scrub points are like the points we gave up when teams we played finally scored at the end of big wins. 

 

11/30/2018 - 10:01am Belmont is a school that’s…

Belmont is a school that’s been making the tourney out of ASun and then OVC quite routinely. It’s been growing for a decade and is arguably one of the top 10 mid-majors of the past decade, consistently.

 

11/28/2018 - 7:56pm He saw what happened to…

He saw what happened to Kingsbury and realized this.

11/28/2018 - 7:39pm Thank you.

Thank you.

11/28/2018 - 4:58pm OSU did not have an elite…

OSU did not have an elite defense, so playing catch up and getting 39 is not the same as scoring first and having leads.

I believe that Harbaugh needs to tweak the offense—particularly how he calls games. This team stalls in the red zone too many times. The game is different if he takes more risks earlier and tries to establish a passing game. I’ve been understanding of the whole run to wear down the defense, but that is not happening in The Game. 

11/28/2018 - 4:47pm I don’t know why anyone…

I don’t know why anyone would question an offense that goes 3-and-out continuously and gets outscored by 17-0 in a quarter. I mean, great offenses always lay eggs when they desperately need points to stay in the game. 

I mean, guys, we scored 39 points on a team that gave up 50 to Purdue and Maryland. 

It is hard as a Harbaugh fan to not criticize the offense when people make asinine defenses of not scoring at all when that is the job of said side of the ball.

11/26/2018 - 5:23pm But do you have a life? Or a…

But do you have a life? Or a sense of worth that extends beyond signing up and trolling a rival to make yourself feel better. Your team won, so you have life issues to deal with. Maybe it’s that you’ve just got plenty of ass on that face of yours?

11/26/2018 - 5:18pm I’d love for people to…

I’d love for people to compare head to head, every starter for OSU and UM. There’s so much clueless blame on the star level of players, and so many times those clamors are for skill positions. Where was the head to head talent deficit match up? 2016 recruiting rankings: Top 5; 2017 rankings: Top 8.

DPJ is a 5; Tarik is a 4; Collins is a 4. Gentry is a 4-star. Evans is a 4-star who was part of a group that beat out a 5-star. Our WRs are as highly or more than there’s. Our DBs are highly ranked as there’s.

That Olave kid who scored twice on us in first half: a solid 3-star. 

Gary a 5. Bush a 4. Plenty of the back up LBs are 4 stars or were, but left. 

Long and Hill and Ambry, high 4s. 

It is coaching, not speed or lack of talent. 

Ruiz was the #1 center and a 4/5. Onwenu and Brederson are 4 stars. Winovich is a 4 star. 

It is coaching. It is the system they use to put talent in a position to succeed. It is year four and every damn position has either a 4 or 5 or a 3 who beat out a 4 or 5. It is bad playcalling and a lack of focus and intensity on The Game. 

But commence the circular debate because of the obvious that more talent means more chances for success at each position is genius and so new.

We have every position filled with a top 200 player in their year and people still whine about stars. 

 

11/25/2018 - 6:15pm 1. Don Brown needs to spend…

1. Don Brown needs to spend his entire offseason studying how to stop up tempo offenses that spread out and get ball off quickly. He needs to turn the Viper into a fucking QB spy. Hudson went backwards this year, and his only known plays were his targeting calls.

2. Teach the DBs non-press man. I’d like them to learn how not to grab the WRs all day long. 

3. LBs not names Bush need to be fast and learn to play in space.

4. No more damned man to man mismatches with LBs on RBs. Bush cannot cover the better teams on those motions.  They need a a set of automatic audibles that keep the LB inside on those empty backfield motions, etc.

5. Play more Nickel base defense to get DB experience against the end of year schedule. Ambry Thomas and company didn’t develop much. We relied on Watson (worst game of season) and no Hawkins or Woods or JKP at end of year.

6.  Enough with the everyone gets a say subterfuge. Pick a fucking offensive coordinator and an offense and learn it and commit to it. Or own it has the head coach and get better at play calling.

7. Yes, beat the dead horse and fire Pep Hamilton and Jay Harbaugh. Bring in Mike Hart. Ask John to take Jay, or move Jay to an analyst position. 

8. Go ahead and keep Jay, but do 1-7 as otherwise stated. 

9. Watch the NFL and study how to get some damn holding calls. 

10. Bring back intense Jim Harbaugh. Not media offseason weird Jim, but media day death look Jim. Jim Harbaugh who doesn’t like his own brother during Super Bowl week Jim.

I don’t care anymore about what the refs or anyone else thinks. I want weird Jim Harbaugh back—the guy who grates other coaches and makes his players love and hate him, but ultimately respect him. 

Have we seen him do any kind of pregame Bo-type speeches? 

 

11/25/2018 - 2:38pm They even called a catch and…

They even called a catch and immediate fumble by Higdon an incomplete pass.  And nobody said anything in the booth because, well, Gus Johnson and Klatt blow. 

11/25/2018 - 8:46am I want them to bury Urban…

I want them to bury Urban Meyer, not some wannabe replacement. The fans who just hope for favorable weather—I don’t get that, competitively.

11/25/2018 - 8:44am Are any of those teams…

Are any of those teams competing for the BIG? 

TCU was highly ranked when Ohio beat them. Since, where is that team? Again, this idea that beating teams with less ranked recruits, with less paid coaches, and with much less talent is supposed to make the season great is your view of “great.” I call that expected. I expected to win those games, and those wins felt good. But for the season to be great means beating our god damned rival at their own field and going to a BIG Championship game. For fucks sake, it was a solid season ended in malfeasance. 

11/24/2018 - 9:40pm If players are soft because…

If players are soft because of fans, then that’s some fucked up causation. Fan criticism doesn’t correlate to a team bombing in The Game by giving up 62 points. That loss is on the team. 

The coaches had a shitty game plan, and shittier adjustments. Don Brown stank it up. Harbaugh showed no creativity.

None of the players outside Bush and DPJ came to play. They had no god damned intensity, all season. The Revenge Tour became some gimmick. 

I want a cut-throat Harbaugh next season, starting with the bowl game. Or else he will need to go after next season. He has Shea or McCaffrey. He has Evans and who? He has three studs at WR. The defense returns most players, but lots of growth needed.

There is no way to objectively state that the worst loss in modern history of the program, to the rival, is not putting one on the hot seat. 

I know it is hard to fathom for us Harbaugh fanboys, but he’s not impenetrable after another big embarrassing loss, unless beating OSU is no longer something the university cherishes. The lore of The Game from our side is gone, for me. Harbaugh is a good college coach, and he was a better pro coach. That’s where it stands in the W-L. He’s built a contender, but he has yet to prove if he can build off of the losses and fuel his players to win the one’s that matter most. 

That’s just the sad truth of what happened today. It was not even a game in the second half.

 

11/24/2018 - 5:44pm They forgot to go to…

They forgot to go to Columbus. Absolutely, the worst performance by UM defense, ever, in my lifetime. 

11/24/2018 - 5:41pm Coverag on punts and…

Coverage on punts and kickoffs was part of the problem. We have them great field position all game. 

11/24/2018 - 5:40pm Return game was atrocious;…

Return game was atrocious; Ambry was mental. Blocking has been atrocious on kicks often this year, and this game was over on the blocked punt score.

11/24/2018 - 5:37pm Terrible coaching. Every…

Terrible coaching. Every year Harbaugh’s spark dies a little more. I’m disappointed that it looks more and more like he’s not going to bring The Game back, because I have kept faith in him. My faith is waning, and if he doesn’t win the BIG next season and go to playoffs, he should be replaced. He’s not the same guy they hired, personality-wise. He’s mellowed like Lou Pinella did with Cubs. He’s lost his edge. 

He has the players, but his offense is stale. 

And Don Brown has the fatal flaw. Every year we get thrashed by spread teams. We cannot cover RBs and WRs with linebackers.  

11/24/2018 - 5:31pm You stated a “great season,”…

You stated a “great season,” which is not the same as good. 10 wins is a good season. That you’re calling someone a bitch is pathetic as fuck. First, why be sexist? Two, why can’t you handle the difference of opinion without resorting to insulting another fan for their perspective. Third, you act like him or her disagreeing means he/she is not happy to have won those games.

However, a great fucking season does not result in the worst beat down I’ve ever seen my team take, and in The Game, with National Playoff implications. Fuck with your morality schpeel and your inability to let others vent.

The team was beat down, stomped, throttled. That’s not a great season. In a great season, ones team doesn’t lose, and sure as hell doesn’t get put in a submission hold.

I have nothing but love for UM, but fuck the fuck off with the name calling.

11/22/2018 - 5:37pm That is not what happened…

That is not what happened. Nagy's playing aggressive because he wants the offensive to believe in itself. Parkey has been perfect since that game. 

And Chase Daniel is not Rex Grossman. I don't even get that comparison. Grossman was a talented first stringer with small hands and a fumbling problem. Daniel is a solid passer who has been a career back up behind great players on solid teams. 

And Nagy's playbook is large, and Daniel has been with him for years. 

The bottom line: your hot take is based on not watching the Bears but on listening to talking heads. Or, if you were a Bears fan, you're one of those dudes who likes to quickly hate players just because that's a Bears fan thing to do.

11/22/2018 - 5:24pm Amazing that TJ Yeldon and…

Amazing that TJ Yeldon and Derrick Henry have done little in the pros. Ingram took a few years to really get going, so maybe they'll end up doing something. Tua Tag looks like a real pro QB, though.

And I love Eddie Jackson, as a Bears fan. Their defensive studs do more than their offensive guys--minus Ridley and Cooper. 

11/17/2018 - 10:10pm Not to be a Permit Patty,…

Not to be a Permit Patty, but your lack of an apostrophe in contracting “it is” is totally against the rules. You need the correct “it’s” because The Game doesn’t own itself. Also, you don’t need quotes around The Game, so, like...I already called the grammar police. 

11/17/2018 - 4:56pm They got the play off before…

They got the play off before the end of the first quarter. Slow-mo shows this crew blows.

11/15/2018 - 12:50am What makes you falsely…

What makes you falsely assume past years dictate how everyone makes assessments for future outcomes? 

Stop acting like Coach K didn’t just get the most loaded class he has had in years, if not ever. He got the equivalent of a Calipari class, only K a helluva better coach.

Zion and Barrett are studs at the top of NBA draft. 

In the era of one and dones, this is one of the best—last few years of Duke teams cannot compare.

11/10/2018 - 7:33pm More for two weeks from now:…

More for two weeks from now: keep working on the stretch runs. We cannot let Dobbins or Weber break one like Pacheco. 

I wish Harbaugh would stop calling deep throws into the sun. A few midday start times for games have resulted in our guys losing passes in the falling sun. Maybe that is to get WRs experience catching tough passes while playing weaker teams—or maybe theyre just making the call without worrying at all about viability.

11/08/2018 - 5:50pm Fans getting all big headed…

Fans getting all big headed now that UM is at the top are the first to go ape shit if we fall. I see no need to talk shit, especially when the team sucks. That’s like picking on the running ability of someone on crutches. What do you do if you lose a race to the team onncrutches after you’ve been cocky as hell at them for just existing?

11/08/2018 - 5:50pm Fans getting all big headed…

Fans getting all big headed now that UM is at the top are the first to go ape shit if we fall. I see no need to talk shit, especially when the team sucks. That’s like picking on the running ability of someone on crutches. What do you do if you lose a race to the team onncrutches after you’ve been cocky as hell at them for just existing?

11/07/2018 - 7:40am Inquiry. You know, curiosity…

Inquiry. You know, curiosity that leads to studying possible causation. 

Humans would never discover or learn anything new with such Doubting Thomasses (misspelling, intentional, and just playing).

11/07/2018 - 7:36am The mockery is not…

The mockery is not astounding from bloggers. I am pretty sure the best Madden and NCAA gamers didn’t go 20 yards back. 

Motion, spread, speed, slants, pick routes. The concepts that win for the average Joe have been more and more integrated prior to the popularity in the real game. This is not to argue causation, but to ramp down the denigration of the supposition’s plausibility. This is worth a qualitative study of coaches. Someone do a survey of pro and college coaches! (They likely will not admit the influence, but what a fun project that’d be for a PhD.)

One play I used for years of NCAA was to motion a WR and snap while he was behind the line on a drag or quick out route. That often lead to wide open receivers. I see this more and more with my pro team, and those like Eagles, Pats, and Chiefs. 

11/04/2018 - 11:44pm I don’t think it was hard to…

I don’t think it was hard to see this team improving. I repeatedly stated: we lost a close game on the road to a team that won a New Year’s Day Bowl last year. We were breaking in a new QB.

Fans are petulant, but that’s no reason to excuse them. This is year 4 and people still question why Harbaugh is a run-heavy guy. 

People need to work on developing a long view or they’re just consistently masochistic. Instead of doubting, how about the questions be earnest to learn and be respectful as to why Harbaugh does what he does?

I wrote it after week 1. Many Michigan fans are mentally soft and those on this blog typically never played and have ridiculous expectations for what the team should be doing. People have very limited visions.

Harbaugh is one of the best coaches. He hired Don Brown, and he is the one who righted the ship after last year’s anomaly. We are blessed to have him as our coach. The instant gratification folks can continue to criticize him—free country—but I am not looking the gift horse in the eye.

Do you watch other college teams play at all? Georgia and Kentucky? Or OSU at home versus Nebraska? That’s part of most quality games with ranked teams—those not involving Alabama. Have you not seen Penn state play other teams? The last two teams to dominate them are Michigan and Michigan. 

Harbaugh grinds it. I wish people would get that. He’s not interested in the deep bombs. He wants his teams to crush the other team, physically, first. Some of us find that pretty fun.
