06/29/2018 - 12:02pm If Devontae Dobbs doesn't…

If Devontae Dobbs doesn't think he cans see the field as a true freshman when OSU's current line is currently featuring a kid who has started every game since he was a true freshman, that's on him.

He was also Maize Haze, word to the true OGs. 

06/21/2018 - 3:57pm If that were remotely true,…

If that were remotely true, Michigan wouldn't offer all the same kids OSU, Clemson and Alabama offer. Basically every kid in OSU's 2018 recruiting class held a Michigan offer too.

04/16/2018 - 12:15pm I mean, you're wrong, but ok.

I mean, you're wrong, but ok. Clemson had the ball all the time because OSU's offense kept going 3 and out and giving it to them. Aren't you a Michigan fan? You see that movie every week. 

04/16/2018 - 10:19am So did everyone? Alabama

So did everyone? Alabama fared way worse. So did 2016 FSU. I mean shit, Ohio State had 9 first downs and turned it over 3 times. Clemson had the ball for 35 minutes. OSU's defense was really good in that game when the offense was an active liability. 

04/15/2018 - 11:14pm Ohio State didn't lose that

Ohio State didn't lose that game on D. They made Watson look pedestrian (259 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs). 

04/10/2018 - 3:26pm do you think shea patterson

do you think shea patterson would have? 

04/04/2018 - 4:01pm For the record, Patterson was

For the record, Patterson was a "pro-style" QB coming out of high school, so it was Ole Miss--not LSU--that didn't run an offense conducive to that.

What part about Patterson's commitment to Ole Miss isn't odd? He's an out of state kid with no direct or indirect ties to the program. He was the number 4 player in the country and the top rated QB, picking an SEC also-ran mired in controversy dating back to a string of similar sketchy commitments in 2013. How many best players in the country go to Ole Miss? His brother left a GA coaching position at LSU after Patterson picked Ole Miss over LSU for a lateral position at Ole Miss? Add up all the context, especially in the hadow of the ongoing issues with Freeze, and why isn't that commitment a little bit weird? 

Also, I only listed the five star/top 100 commitments from out of state. There were others from Mississippi who I didn't list that I'm giving the benefit of the doubt to as recruits who could have reasonably picked their in-state football school without receiving money to do so. I struggle to offer the same benefit of the doubt to kids from Texas or Tennessee or Illinois who pick Ole Miss.

In regards to your due diligence point, maybe in year one or two the risk isn't worth the reward, but the pressure on Harbaugh to win this year is quite palpable. As is the pressure to put a competent QB on the field. It isn't 2015 anymore.

04/04/2018 - 1:16pm I do disagree with the

I do disagree with the interpretation Patterson followed his brother around. It appears his brother followed him around. 

04/04/2018 - 11:58am I'm sure you gave all these

I'm sure you gave all these benefits of the doubt to the parade of five stars that got Ole Miss into this mess. Shea Patterson was the only five star who signed with Ole Miss that was above board because "Ole Miss was pretty good" and ran an offense every other big time program, with the exception of like, five, also ran. All the other OOS top 100 kids (Treadwell, Nkemdiche, Tunsil, Lodge, Jefferson, Anderson, Little) that enrolled at Ole Miss were in on the take, but Patterson was the only one who wasn't. 

Pardon me if I don't particularly buy that. Especially when you look at the circumstances surrounding Patterson's commitment to Ole Miss (brother leaves job at LSU for identical job at Ole Miss exactly at the same time Patterson picks Ole Miss over LSU). I'm not saying Michigan is offering Patterson any improper benefits right now, in fact, I'll explicitly say they aren't. But I think it's delusional to assume Shea Patterson's commitment to Ole Miss was 100% free and clear of any improper benefits, and if Ole Miss really wants to roll around in the mud here because their feelings are hurt, they can probably expose that to the NCAA.

There's nothing about the circumstances of Shea Patterspon's commitment to Ole Miss that look normal, and no one here would be pretending it does if he was pursuing a transfer to anywhere other than Michigan. Can you imagine how many threads would be on this board if OSU was trying to get his immediate eligibility? C'mon. 

04/04/2018 - 11:03am He was never committed to

He was never committed to LSU. He was committed to Arizona. It's arguably even more shady, because Patterson's brother was already on staff at LSU, Patterson picked Ole Miss over LSU, and then his brother immediately emerged on staff at Ole Miss. Why didn't Patterson just pick the objectively superior football school in his current home state with his brother already on staff over Ole Miss? 

04/04/2018 - 10:59am I mean, Harbaugh hires the

I mean, Harbaugh hires the relatives of his players all the time. Also, there's a school in Louisiana that is pretty famous for football, so idk. Besides, Shreveport is essentially Texas, it's not near the Mississippi side, and it's not near the NOLA/SEC side sections of Louisiana. it's not culturally similar. It's really aggressively giving someone the benefit of the doubt to say Shreveport, LA is basically Ole Miss. I'm sure if Shea Patterson was fleeing Ole Miss for Alabama everyone would be like "Oh yea, nothing improper with his commitment to Ole Miss and attempts to gain eligibility at Alabama."

04/04/2018 - 10:13am It is funny, right? I mean,

It is funny, right? I mean, everyone killed Ole Miss for being dirty because a bunch of random 5 stars with no ties to Ole Miss just went there out of the blue and got them into this mess, but I bet the random 5 star QB with no ties to Ole Miss who just went there out of the blue was on the up and up now that he's a Michigan recruit. Nothing to see there, I'll bet. 

03/11/2018 - 6:56pm Michigan went 0-5 against OSU

Michigan went 0-5 against OSU this year, and you're really gonna play the "shoulda woulda" blown 'em out last game card? 

02/27/2018 - 7:23am it's really my first and

it's really my first and middle name, you don't even know my last name!

02/26/2018 - 5:23pm I think the point of

I think the point of comparison is we both lost two B1G games to teams that are quote unquote "inferior" that the other team also beat. 

I also didn't say OSU's Butler loss was quality. I do think it's a better loss than U-M's LSU loss, but that doesn't mean either loss is particularly great. I also think if OSU played UCLA and Texas instead of Gonzaga and Clemson, we'd have two less losses, and there'd be no debate about OSU being ranked ahead of U-M. 

02/26/2018 - 3:48pm i agree. i thought osu looked

i agree. i thought osu looked pretty good in that game for a while, but their guard play just couldn't hang in the last 8 mins. will be interesting to see how the game goes on a neutral floor.

02/26/2018 - 2:15pm Agree with this completely.

Agree with this completely. OSU hasn't been very impressive in February. Of course they beat Purdue on the 7th, but they  also had close ones against Iowa, Indiana and Illinois, lost to Michigan and got demolished by PSU. OSU spent December and January pulverizing bad B1G teams, and spent February squeaking games out against similar competition. Maybe the week off before the tournament will help them since they're more shallow than usual. They looked worn down by the end of the season. 

02/26/2018 - 1:39pm I mean what isn't clear?

I mean what isn't clear? Michigan's best win is MSU, and OSU also beat MSU. OSU has the same overall record, and a better B1G record than Michigan. Both got beat by UNC. OSU has 7 losses and 4 are to teams ranked in the top 15. Michigan also has 7 losses and 4 are to teams in the top 15. Each team won their home game against the other. OSU lost to PSU twice, and Michigan lost to Nebraska and Northwestern. Neither team has an impressive non-con win, and OSU's non-con schedule was demonstrably tougher. Michigan's loss to LSU was probably worse than any OSU loss. Dismissing OSU's win over Purdue in Mackey is funny to me, when you specifically ask the question "What have they done that we haven't?" and then immediately dismiss the biggest thing OSU did that Michigan didn't. 

02/25/2018 - 6:53pm ok, see, this one deserved

ok, see, this one deserved more upvotes, this was funny.

You still haven't explained why waiting a decade and then thumbing your nose at everyone for cheating is any better. 

02/20/2018 - 3:39pm No (we also lost in 2000),

No (we also lost in 2000), no, definitely yes, definitely yes, no.

Penn State is Blue Iowa to me. I couldn't care any less about them. And I live in Philly now and see these people every day and they don't move the needle any percent. 

02/20/2018 - 3:18pm Why? Because the passage of

Why? Because the passage of time means the event didn't occur? That sounds silly. Either honor the guys who cheated, or don't. Waiting 15 years and then honoring the cheaters doesn't actually mean they didn't cheat, you know? 

02/20/2018 - 3:04pm See, I'm from Pittsburgh so I

See, I'm from Pittsburgh so I genuinely pity Shark's poor pathetic Browns fandom as much as MGrowOld perceives I pity his Michigan fandom. I don't have any hatred or fear of the Browns ever. However, I am terrified of losing to Michigan, even if ongoing results make that fear totally irrational. That's how you know it's hatred. 

02/20/2018 - 3:00pm Michigan honored the Fab Five

Michigan honored the Fab Five at halftime of a basketball game in 2010. Would it have been different to you if Tressel just smiled and waved at the 2002 team's little ceremony? 

02/20/2018 - 1:40pm I'm sure you hang your head

I'm sure you hang your head in shame over the Fab Five every day. 

02/20/2018 - 1:29pm I definitely still hate you. 

I definitely still hate you. 

02/11/2018 - 1:45pm it actually was one game

it actually was one game against indiana that made rudock's numbers look aggressively better than they were the other 12. 

02/07/2018 - 11:33pm No we weren't. We were glad

No we weren't. We were glad to get rid of Warriner as OC. But we would have loved to retain him at a demotion back down to OL coach, where he was very successful from 2012-2014. Alas, we had hired a replacement OL coach the year we promoted Warriner to OC, and there was no room for him to take a demotion down to his old job. Had OSU not hired Greg Studrawa to be the OL coach in 2015, I'd imagine we'd have been totally ok with Warriner returning to OL coach after we hired Kevin Wilson at OC.

Yea, I mean, if you change all the stuff Michigan did bad in the two games and keep all the stuff OSU did bad, maybe Michigan wins!

OSU screwed themselves by not self-imposing a bowl ban in 2011. That was a gigantic tactical error by Gene Smith.
