Agree that it was the worst game so far. A lot of turnovers on offense which led to easy buckets. The team dropped a spot on Kenpom because the game was a lot closer than expected, but it’s still nice to be 10-0.

He does this every week with Penn State’s opponent. Not really newsworthy.

10/27/2018 - 10:18am They walked at 9:55 this…

They walked at 9:55 this week. No helmets.

10/21/2018 - 9:38pm Off the top of my head, I’d…

Off the top of my head, I’d say spelling bees and trivial pursuit are both very winnable in Columbus.

10/21/2018 - 8:22pm Yep. This was explained on…

Yep. This was explained on twitter by Mike Pereira almost immediately after it happened, so it’s not a mystery. MSU actually only had 10 men on the field, then ran a guy out late. Refs have to give the defense time to sub when that happens. It was a legit call. If you sub late, you need to call a timeout or take the penalty.

10/20/2018 - 3:49pm Not sure if they even…

Not sure if they even practice against a defense, let alone in rain and snow . Shea playing scared and the running backs can’t hold onto the ball. In case that wasn’t enough, the play calls have been pretty poor as well. 

10/19/2018 - 9:53am I think the movie relates to…

I think the movie relates to Urban Meyer’s recent inability to remember events.

10/16/2018 - 5:17pm There’s zero chance news…

There’s zero chance news this big isn’t on the board almost  immediately. It hit twitter several hours ago, so just assume it’s already here...multiple times.

10/09/2018 - 6:25am Valenti has a lot of…

Valenti has a lot of competition for that bottom spot. I actually think Drew Sharp or Rob Parker would probably claim it in a vote. Valenti has some fans (mostly state people), but I’ve never met one person that liked Rob Parker. People softened on Sharp after he passed, but he was almost universally disliked as well. 

10/01/2018 - 9:37pm I didn’t miss his bigger…

I didn’t miss his bigger point. I’m not an idiot. It’s not a good or accurate point he made. First of all, it’s better when you have solid upperclassman. Pining for freshman to play means the team probably isn’t that good. I mean I guess Purdue is hyped about Rondale Moore, but their team still sucks. Also, we have had freshman make plays in meaningful games recently. DPJ and Tarik Black both did so last year. He made an incorrect statement based on a “woe is me” attitude without sharing any evidence. You chimed in because you’re a condescending, negative asshole.

Any time you speak with any of your accounts I think about the research showing that “negs” in online discussions actually make behavior worse because the person acts like a martyr or they believe they’re the only one speaking the truth to reconcile all the negative feedback. Then, they just get worse and worse because it’s easier to lean into those beliefs than reflect on one’s behavior. You are the embodiment of that in my mind.

10/01/2018 - 4:35pm Ronnie Bell scored a…

Ronnie Bell scored a touchdown literally last week.

09/30/2018 - 10:00pm I think Purdue would be a…

I think Purdue would be a scarier matchup for us. Maryland is 15th in rushing offense and 119th in passing offense. I feel better about stopping the run than Purdue’s passing game.

09/30/2018 - 9:55pm The week before the MSU game…

The week before the MSU game, Michigan plays Wisconsin and state plays PSU. Neither team will be able to overlook the opponent.

09/30/2018 - 9:54pm They seem pretty one…

They seem pretty one dimensional on offense and Michigan has been pretty strong against the run. I think this is a good matchup.

09/29/2018 - 3:32pm How do so many people not…

How do so many people not know that Clemson fans go on the field after every game? 

09/29/2018 - 3:30pm Clemson fans go on the field…

Clemson fans go on the field after every game. It’s one of their traditions.

09/29/2018 - 11:59am I disagree. I think he seems…

I disagree. I think he seems like a decent guy. He grew up in Detroit and worked at Second City for a while. Went to U of D as well. Solid local guy and good story in my opinion.

09/23/2018 - 6:19pm “For once.” Thanks for…

“For once.” Thanks for saving us all. You are truly the hero we need with your unique and mature insights. I missed the thread that 100% of the rest of us agreed we were basically the new Alabama.

09/23/2018 - 6:07pm This is something that…

This is something that should be in the snowflakes-offense thread.

09/23/2018 - 10:45am Black Pit of Negative…

Black Pit of Negative Expectations. Edit: way too slow - should’ve refreshed to see if someone had answered.

09/12/2018 - 6:28pm No. Next question.

No. Next question.

09/10/2018 - 5:49pm There was a “fan” a few rows…

There was a “fan” a few rows away from me on Saturday that was almost as bad as you describe. Yelled complaints the entire game very similar to your example. I just kept wondering why he was there since he had obviously resigned himself to be miserable regardless of the play on the field. To make others miserable I guess? I’m hoping he’s not a new season ticket holder and won’t be coming back again. He seemed like a terrible person.

09/08/2018 - 11:02pm You talking about God’s Plan…

You talking about God’s Plan by Drake? I don’t recall Lil Wayne being played.

09/04/2018 - 9:10pm I look forward to the…

I look forward to the feature of being able to see who wrote a post before you open it. The diaries have it, so it shouldn’t be hard to add to the board.

09/04/2018 - 5:48pm Pitbull’s real name is…

Pitbull’s real name is Armando. Much less interesting than “let’s go.”

09/03/2018 - 1:26pm Braylon Edwards, like many…

Braylon Edwards, like many Michigan fans, was having a hard time with his emotions on Saturday night. He had a tweet that he later deleted. He is now suspended from big ten network.

09/02/2018 - 2:52pm It is always weird when…

It is always weird when someone from a different fan base posts here, as if they are going to say anything that any Michigan fan doesn’t already know. We obviously follow the team and we don’t have access to Urban’s medicine cabinet, so we know the records. We also remember watching Hoke and know the context of the seasons/games. I would much rather have Harbaugh at this point. 

09/02/2018 - 10:01am Those were not all bad calls…

Those were not all bad calls. Defense was undisciplined and gave away a lot of points with those drive extending penalties. Definitely not “bad luck.”

09/01/2018 - 9:30pm Speight was injured.

Speight was injured.

09/01/2018 - 9:29pm That was a rough first half…

That was a rough first half. The defense was absolutely terrible. Huge disappointment after all the offseason hype.

09/01/2018 - 8:55pm That’s why you’re not a…

That’s why you’re not a captain.

09/01/2018 - 8:16pm As it turns out, the…

As it turns out, the secondary is a fairly big weakness of this defense after all.

09/01/2018 - 8:00pm So dumb by Metellus. He…

So dumb by Metellus. He could’ve raked the ball out and instead he lowered his shoulder right into the receivers head. No awareness whatsoever.

09/01/2018 - 7:35am Honest question, why would…

Honest question, why would anyone pay to have Rob Parker on their show? That guy has never added value to anything. Add me to the list of people that are shocked he still has a job in sports. 

08/31/2018 - 8:56pm No one is saying they…

No one is saying they shouldn’t be excited. If you aren’t excited about your team at this time of year, then you’re doing it wrong. My first comment was about the abundant optimism of any fan base, not just ours. In the same vein, whichever team loses will have those same people seething with anger and despair. It’s all part of what makes this sport great. The only people that truly suck are the “woe is me” crowd that can’t ever seem to enjoy anything and always look for a reason to complain.

Go check out the ND sbnation site onefootdown. You will see that many over there are predicting blowouts as well. I’m sure other ND sites are similar. Both fan bases seem excited about their team’s chances.

08/23/2018 - 10:13pm My favorite national college…

My favorite national college football podcasts are The Solid Verbal and 247sports College Football. I prefer both of these to The Audible or PAPN, but those are ok too.

I listen to a few Michigan specific podcasts as well, mgoblog included. Maize n Brew is pretty good. 

My favorite non cfb podcast is Doug Loves Movies. 

I walk all a lot as well, so I also listen to a lot of podcasts. Not through YouTube though. I use other apps.

I think he had about 20 cock rings delivered to the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, so....yeah.

08/14/2018 - 4:58pm All of the ND sites have…

All of the ND sites have been reporting for a while  that he is likely suspended the first 4 games. It is a university suspension so Kelley has no control over it. Also, Kelley cannot comment about it due to student privacy rules (according to those sites), so there won’t be an official announcement.

08/13/2018 - 8:37pm None of these have been…

None of these have been listed on the guide. It is airing at 10 tonight in Big Ten and Beyond slot.

10 pm according to BTN twitter 

08/13/2018 - 8:36pm Yeah, apparently it is…

Yeah, apparently it is Robinson, a backup OT.

I thought Mayfield was going against Hutchinson in that clip. 

08/08/2018 - 10:35pm Umpteenth to comment? It…

Umpteenth to comment? It says the amount of comments directly on the post dude. There were 28 before I posted this. That was the easiest thing to research out of everything you wrote. 

07/26/2018 - 9:41am College success obviously…

College success obviously. This is a ridiculous question for a college blog. 

The reason people like to tout NFL success is for better recruiting, which leads to more college success. Otherwise, NFL success is worthless in relation to my enjoyment of Michigan football.

07/17/2018 - 5:10pm I’ve never looked into the…

I’ve never looked into the prices at other schools. Do you know if there is a big difference cost-wise between Nebraska and here? I usually take my family to one game a year, but I feel that most games are priced to high to want to go more often than that.

07/11/2018 - 9:29pm Downvoted because of the…

Downvoted because of the lame teaser title. Any title with an ellipsis is terrible. If the title is actually informative, people can avoid the topics they don’t like.

A rule on par with no politics, which  you chose to blatantly disregard.

06/17/2018 - 8:10pm It is not possible to…

It is not possible to coordinate to increase star counts unless they are sharing a time machine. R/cfb karma was frozen a while ago for the game. People are pretty much what they are at this point.

06/13/2018 - 6:19pm Good news, bad news on…

Good news, bad news on twitter the karma freeze. Bad news is I’ll only ever be a 2 star in this game. Good news is I can go back to not reading reddit.

06/12/2018 - 11:28pm I think Edward Norton is…

I think Edward Norton is excellent, but he doesn’t seem to be in as many movies lately. He was great in primal fear, American history X, fight club, and rounders. For some reason he hasn’t taken on the same quality of roles in recent years.
