12/10/2018 - 2:50pm I'm still mesmerized that…

I'm still mesmerized that Sideshow Bob is an actual person and he plays college basketball for South Carolina.

12/10/2018 - 9:11am I hope you are right.

I hope you are right.

12/10/2018 - 9:09am Is this true? Was he really…

Is this true? Was he really wearing an OSU hat during his official to Michigan? If true, that is some serious bullshit. 

I fear he might be that certain type of OSU recruit (like Terrelle Pryor) who is secretly a Buckeye the whole time but just wants to lead Michigan on, so that there can be another well advertised loss for the Wolverines on signing day.

 

12/09/2018 - 10:50pm When M loses key recruits…

When M loses key recruits like this, you know what pisses me off all over again?

A few years ago our new head coach decides to hustle and outwork every other program out there and conduct a bunch of summer camps ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, giving kids who couldn’t otherwise afford to travel to far away camps to get invaluable exposure. It was an unqualified POSITIVE for the kids. 

And then Mark Fucking Emmert caves in to the SEC and ACC and bans the camps FOR NO GOOD REASON. 

Just so the handful of power programs can continue to monopolize the sport.

Yeah I’m still fucking salty about it.

12/08/2018 - 7:21pm If M made the playoff I…

If M made the playoff I think this kid would’ve stuck with his commitment. But until M can prove it is one of the small handful of elite teams we will lose recruiting battles like this.

This one hurts.

11/13/2018 - 6:57pm Sorry. Hawkins is too slow…

Sorry. Hawkins is too slow to play safety for Michigan. 

That was painful to watch. He is a great kid. But either he develops more speed or he grabs some bench.

By contrast, look at the impressive amount of ground Long makes up coming from WAY away from the play. Now THAT is the type of speed we should expect from a DB on a Don Brown #1 Defense.

10/24/2018 - 11:40am I would like some…

I would like some clarification on when the 4-6 week timeline started.  Is that 4-6 weeks from the NW game? 

Or 4-6 weeks from when he stopped practicing after realizing he couldn't practice without re-aggravating the AC injury?

10/24/2018 - 10:29am ^^THIS^^

Harbaugh's whole …

^^THIS^^

Harbaugh's whole "he decided he couldn't play..." comment 100% fueled this.  Why fucking say it like that, Jim? It was kind of a bullshit answer that I figured was going to generate drama that the team DOES NOT NEED.

That is one old-school aspect of Harbaugh I do not love.  Often time he is not very understanding about injuries.

10/12/2018 - 4:27pm Sorry, but my BPONE has me…

Sorry, but my BPONE has me fully CONVINCED that Wisconsin is going to have two early scoring drives while Michigan's offense stumbles out of the gate, and we find ourselves trying to dig out of a hole yet again.   

All evidence indicates that this absolutely SHOULD NOT HAPPEN. 

Which is why it will. 

BPONE is real.

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

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.
