08/06/2018 - 4:30pm Dude looks like a bad man…

Dude looks like a bad man bajema.

07/16/2018 - 4:28pm Is it too much to ask copy…

Is it too much to ask copy editors to get "a part" and "apart" correct?  Opposite meanings. Drives me frickin nuts.

03/28/2018 - 10:37am Michigan was picked to finish 6th in the Big Ten this year

OSU was supposed to be good. ND was supposed to be good. MN-Duluth was in the playpoffs last year.

No other coach took a team from nowhere to the Frozen Four.

   

 

Just give Mel the damn COTY award already.

 

03/10/2018 - 10:44pm Crazy to say but 1-5

...would be a delicious record vs them this year. Maximum frustration for them. All good.

03/10/2018 - 10:15pm Lavigne should’ve had that

Unobstructed view, was able to get squared to the shot. Weak fucking goal.
Sigh.

03/05/2018 - 8:54am Either a 2 or 3 seed

Anything lower would be a total screw job.

02/23/2018 - 3:16pm How can M end up being ranked #15 or #16

...and be a goddamn SIX seed?  That is idiotic.

02/17/2018 - 6:16pm OP, How are following this?

In person, or is it on somewhere?

02/13/2018 - 10:23am JFC...

Harbaugh/Drevno have literally been here for TWO NFL draft classes!! Jump to conclusions much??

They put a walk-on into the NFL (glasgow)

They inherited Magnuson, Kalis, and Braden and ZERO experienced depth behind them thanks to HOKE. 

That horrific lack of depth forced Cole back out to LT because for C, other than Kugler, they had TRUE FRESHMEN.

Newsome was going to be a star and gets kneecapped by a fuckhead Badger CB.

Cole is only the 6th starting OL under them to graduate and he IS going to be drafted, too.

 

Stop being Chicken Little and wait for their OL recruits to bear fruit.

Look at Clemson and their patience with Dabo Swinney. Let's follow suit.

 

02/09/2018 - 11:33am Hmmm. Just the season before last,

the 2016 Michigan football team had the HIGHEST SCORING OFFENSE since Yost's 1904 team. 

Then in 2017 the offense fall off a cliff due to a putrid PASSING game.

The problem is Hamilton, not Drevno.

 

02/08/2018 - 12:27am Damn

that is an incredibly weak schedule.  Maybe even easier than Nebraska's.

02/07/2018 - 10:57pm Brandon Peters was so bad in the Outback Bowl

He was every bit as bad as JOK vs OSU. Check that. He was worse.  What a putrid display.

The QB position screwed over the 2017 season. 

01/13/2018 - 3:27pm Uhhh, 40% from three

is solid. Or are you just amazed by the low volume?

01/11/2018 - 3:32pm excellent and accurate post

I very much enjoyed a lot a great points here

01/03/2018 - 10:34am Crazy depth on D in 2018

So Don Brown gets nine starters back, which is obviously awesome, but he’s also getting ALL ELEVEN second stringers back, right?

Whoa.

01/02/2018 - 10:02am This kind of crap should stop

Don’t try to tell me that this Amazon stunt was not a distraction for our young men.
It is the exact opposite of “don’t talk about it, be about it.”

Need I remind anyone that MSU had an elaborate filming of their pre-season camp before their 3-9 debacle?

That should have been a cautionary tale, instead of hubris.

12/27/2017 - 11:03am THIS was literally the best summary I may have ever read

Just a perfectly accurate, rational, and thoughtful summary of Harbaugh’s first 3 seasons.
Thank you for this.

11/22/2017 - 2:19am Turns out LSU played out of their ass vs Michigan

...and of course came crashing back to Earth vs ND.  They had open 3 and after open 3 after open 3 early in their game vs ND.

How many did they make, you ask?  0 for 7 to start the game, and by the time they finally hit a fucking trey the rout was on. 

The LSU player who scored double-digit points and suffocated Robinson on D last night badly sprains his ankle literally 30 seconds into the game.

Last night's Demonte "Allen Iverson" Waters looked like just another typical frosh tonight.

LSU looked like a completely different team, and it had little to do with ND's defense.

WTF.

11/21/2017 - 12:13pm I thought his comments

about the fan base were snarky and bitter. He is not feeling the love.

11/18/2017 - 5:29pm Michigan LITERALLY has

...the NUMBER ONE PASS DEFENSE in the COUNTRY you fucking idiot. Check out the NCAA website.

11/13/2017 - 11:09pm Like OSU last year...

the Big 10 refs are going to protect their highest ranked snowflake and make sure it gets into the CFB playoff. Where it will promptly get destroyed and embarrass the whole conference.
Just call it even and let the best team win! I’m so fucking tired of crappy part-time refs deciding outcomes.

11/12/2017 - 9:56pm He’s missed 2 PATs

1 vs PSU and 1 vs Minny

11/03/2017 - 2:31pm did you mean to write "square quotes" ???

n/m

10/27/2017 - 3:22pm I foresee another ugly win

Rutgers gets early cheap points off of Michigan turnovers. Suddenly Michigan feels pressure to score, and Rutgers makes it difficult with their "bend but don't break" defensive scheme, which all of their opponents so far have torched...but our inept offense won't be able to.

I see a game like last year's Indiana game happening. Michigan is either barely ahead or maybe even losing well into the 3rd quarter.

Michigan will not cover the point spread.

 

...or maybe I'm just still bitter over that fucking loss to MSU.

10/25/2017 - 12:46pm Yes, Filiaga is projected as an OT

n/m

10/25/2017 - 12:44pm I question anyone who doesn't choose Michigan

of course, I'm a total homer, so there's that.

10/19/2017 - 11:36am FYI his father was an OG

n/m

10/15/2017 - 2:26pm Last year that "shamble"...

scored the most points of any Michigan offense SINCE 1905!

Chill out.

10/15/2017 - 2:26pm Last year that "shamble"...

scored the most points of any Michigan offense SINCE 1905!

Chill out.

10/11/2017 - 1:27pm That is BS

Cole did not have to attempt a cut block.  He made it out to the guy just fine. How about he just stays on his feet and drive block the guy into next fucking Tuesday?  Cole quit on that play.  He got tired and decided to attempt the cut and he failed. FAIL.

10/10/2017 - 4:41pm So on this play...

Cole sucked - TOTAL wiff and his assignment gets in on the tackle

Bedeson - uninvolved,really by design

Kugler - good block

Onwenu - no push then gets knocked over

JBB - okay he wiffed BUT did he make those two defenders adjust their angles of pursuit

Mason - good block

Wheatley - good block

DJP - AWESOME BLOCK! Gets a 2-for-1 because he blast one guy into another!

The LBs wreck this play if not for DJP.

Nice running by Higdon on this play, too.

 

 

 

10/10/2017 - 1:12pm How does the O get better right now?

Grab O'Korn by both ears and gently instruct him as such:

 

 "Hi, John. How's it going? Can I suggest something? If your first read is not totally wide FUCKING open go ahead and LOOK FOR YOUR GODDAMN WIDE OPEN CHECKDOWNS! Mmkay?"

10/09/2017 - 12:36pm you fucking asshole

n/m

10/09/2017 - 12:33pm On JOK's first two INTs

there are WIDE OPEN checkdowns that JOK simply has to go to, given the fact that his inital read is well covered.

McKeon was uncovered in the left flat on the first INT.

Evans was uncovered in the middle on the second INT.

Acres of open turf in front of both guys. Damn it, take what the defense gives you!

10/09/2017 - 12:26pm Watch the offsides play again

Bush GOT BACK before the snap!  That was a blown call by the refs.  Hurst got  TFL on that play.  It should have been a 3 and out, giving us more time for our final drive.

10/09/2017 - 11:02am JOK was 90% responsible for the loss

On ALL THREE of JOK's interceptions there were blitheringly WIDE OPEN checkdowns with acres of open turf in front of them:

 

1) First INT has McKeon leaking out into the left flat UNCOVERED

2) Second INT has Chris Evans completely UNCOVERED leaking out into the middle of the field three yards in front of JOK's FUCKING FACE.  Evans' first job was to pick up any blitzers.  There were no blitzers so he leaked out as a checkdown. Evans would have had the whole right half of the field open in front of him.

3) Third INT has Perry uncovered on the sideline.  Instead he shot puts it to Gentry who is double covered.

Were the coaches screaming at JOK to just throw the easy pass to the uncovered checkdowns?  If not, then THAT is what we should be criticizing.

 

04/25/2017 - 3:59pm I am hereby pronouncing his first name...

JAY - A - RON

(Key & Peele ref)

04/05/2017 - 1:05pm Irvin will always be remembered fondly

Zak resurrected his legacy. Every Michigan basketball fan will now smile when someone brings up his name. So happy about that, because he is a classy guy who just wanted so much to be great for Michigan. 

03/21/2017 - 5:26pm UCLA scares me the most

That's about it.  Kansas is freakishly athletic, yet freakishly undiscipined.  Florida and Kentucky are good.  Trying to beat Purdue for a 3rd time in a row would be worrisome.

03/21/2017 - 5:20pm Great writing, Ace

Your game has elevated like that of our beloved cagers. Really good stuff!

03/18/2017 - 8:42pm No shit Sherlock

He's saying the tournament games are the PROOF, not the reason.

03/18/2017 - 10:38am that's when I laugh!

(Shoutout to the Godfather of soul)

03/13/2017 - 1:02pm YASSSSS!

next question

03/13/2017 - 12:57pm You are correct

and I did think about adding him to the LEGIT list, but I did not because his sample size is so small.  But yes, it can be argued that he is yet another 3pt weapon.  Just a remarkably good shooting team. 

I loved our big men in years past, but many of them were a solid NO WAY from beyond the arc. 

And I agree with Beilein that our bigs still MUST have a solid and respectable ability to score inside the paint to keep defenses honest. 

03/13/2017 - 1:34am Michigan shooters:

Has M ever been this deep with solidly LEGIT 3pt shooters?

Starters:

Walton? LEGIT.

MAAR? LEGIT.

Irvin? NOW LEGIT.

Wagner? LEGIT.

Wilson? LEGIT.

6th man:

Robinson? LEGIT.

And now that this team pairs their offensive prowess with cohesive and tenacious defense it is REALLY fun to watch!

03/13/2017 - 1:27am Louisville's KenPom rankings are:

23rd offense

6th defense

Oklahoma State is:

1st offense (yeesh!)

133rd defense

 

Michigan is:

6th offense

69th defense

And Michigan's defensive ranking has been soaring upward.

Remember, to shut down Michigan's offense you have to be both athletic AND disciplined. 

 

03/02/2017 - 11:26pm What happens if NW beats Purdue?

Would M still be the worst 10-8 team of the the 3-way (M-MSU-IA) tie?

02/22/2017 - 8:47am It will be a "must win" at home for NW?

I expect that newly minted FT-against record to fall. The coin-flipping penis refs will insure NW gets the win.

At least figure skating ADMITS their "sport" is a subjective beauty contest run by judges.

02/17/2017 - 10:01am The turning point in the game was this:

When Happ set a legal, but unnecessarily dangerous, pick and absolutely DESTROYED Walton.  Up to that point Michigan was playing a polite, pretty lackluster game.  They were content to take outside shots and play passive post defense.

But then...

Michigan's players saw their senior team leader leveled by that rough pick and were like "Oh, it's ON now MFers!"  They played with a newfound piss and vinegar the rest of the way and that made all the difference.

02/12/2017 - 3:34pm They're 6-6

The above 4-2 scenario gets them to 10-8.
