|10/17/2018 - 9:34am||Its the national media -…||
Its the national media - their switch flipped and now they regurgitate how great Michigan is now ad naseum after beating an extremely weak defensive Wisconsin team. And the sheep take it as gospel.
The thing i noticed is, on this site and 247 site and rivals site, how our offensive line is suddenly awesome! Its a little better, yeah, but holy fuck look at the lines we have played the last few weeks - our line is still average (which is better than last year and beginning of the year i admit) but people are now greatly over-hyping our O-Line.
BTW, Purdue is going to beat OSU this week. You heard it here first!
|10/16/2018 - 9:33am||i think Mgoblue98 is correct…||
i think Mgoblue98 is correct. This purdue team may very well upset OSU. Purdue is MUCH better than their record suggests. I don't think OSU is going to come out with their "A" game, Purdue will. There is a very good shot of an upset this weekend.
|10/15/2018 - 4:56pm||Everyone on this message…||
Everyone on this message board (and zach shaw at 247) is GREATLY overrating our offensive line. They appear to be taking care of business because they have played Wisonsins worst line in 79 years and a 1 man Maryland defensive line. And cupcakes before that (except ND).
Our line play is definitely better. No doubt. But holy shit pump the fucking brakes people! Our line is still average, and people are throwing out some crazy shit right now.
Michigan States front will make you realize how good our line is again, as you WILL be screaming at your TV set.
But we still win.
|10/15/2018 - 9:09am||I have to believe that PSU…||
I have to believe that PSU is/has serious slipped in the race for him.
I also HAVE to believe OSU has slipped due to both the scandal, and recent rumors of liars health issues.
I do believe that Michigan was probably running 3rd for him at one point. I also believe that Michigan very well could hold a slight lead at this moment, or be right there with OSU.
There is no drama at UM. UM offers the better education. Our DL continues to be arguably the best in college football year in and year out under Mattison. He has to see all this, right?.
|10/14/2018 - 5:34pm||Your dead wrong. Lewerke is…||
Your dead wrong. Lewerke is a VERY good QB. He has a shit run game and a shit offensive line, and basically every win is because of him.
He can scramble. He buys time. He has above average accuracy and a pretty good arm. Saying Lewerke is bad - well sorry you are not being objective and are a fairly bad analyst/scout.
That offense is complete shit around him. He makes it serviceable alone.

OMG too funny, i missed that one 5 years ago!
|10/12/2018 - 3:44pm||One thing about this game i…||
One thing about this game i forgot to include because i was busy masturbating over the Axis and Allies comment - im worried not about us kicking their ass on the field, i'm worried about us keeping 2 or 3 of their drives alive by fucking holding/pass interference penalty's. It has now come to fruition that every time our opponent throws the ball, im EXPECTING pass interference to be called :( I HATE that feeling!
|10/12/2018 - 3:41pm||Favorite comment of All-Time…||
Favorite comment of All-Time (and there have been some great ones!)....
as an avid axis and allies player (i have at least 5 games going at all times on gamesbyemail.com) - and an avid board game player, i KNOW how fucking long it takes to set up a board game, especially revised edition!
|10/12/2018 - 2:38pm||I absolutely agree. He is…||
I absolutely agree. He is going to go somewhere to start as a freshmen. Ok. Go ahead.
Freshmen OL SUCK! they SUCK. So by his sophmore year, he may be average. His junior year he would be average or above average.
Why they hell would Michigan want a weak link for a year?
The problem is, he will go to OSU, they WONT start him after promising he will start, he will stay there until he is a senior, and kick our ass his junior and senior year.
To go somewhere where your promised to start - naive.
|10/12/2018 - 10:13am||I wanted Hoke to succeed in…||
I wanted Hoke to succeed in the worst way. I really, really liked the guy. I could not stand Harbuagh, and was glad Michigan hired Hoke instead.
However, the moment my tune changed and i stopped trusting Hoke was during a must win game at Nebraska in 2012 i believe it was. Michigan was ranked, and the game was a big game for us. Denard was hurt. Hoke played Russell Bellamy instead of Devin Gardner because "Gardner did not practice that week at QB" (Garder was a transitioned WR at that time if you recall).
Now, i can see putting Bellamy in their 1 series. Maybe 2. But holy fuck stubborn Hoke REFUSED to pull him and replace him with Gardner, even after missing his first 10 attempts, and finishing with 3 of 16 for 38 yards and 3 INT's. Hoke (bellamy) single handidly lost that game (a very winnable one at a very important time). That was the moment i lost TOTAL faith in Hoke, and knew i should have bit my toungue, put my pride for Michigan aside, and wanted Harbaugh as coach isntead of Hoke. It was the WORST decision i have seen by a coach. (ok, playing Morris is probably first).
|10/11/2018 - 3:32pm||Uggggh, reading the comments…||
Uggggh, reading the comments section of that hello post. And this line ..... wow did UM whiff on a ton...
Michigan now has 11 commits in the class of 2014 and should be finished recruiting linebackers with Ferns and Winovich in the fold. The Wolverines currently have room to take ~15 players in the class, though that number should swell to around 20 when all is said and done. The main targets moving forward are SDE Da'Shawn Hand, 3-tech/SDE Malik McDowell, slot receiver Artavis Scott, and a trio of highly-ranked defensive backs: CA ATH Juju Smith, CA CB Adoree' Jackson, and IL CB Parrker Westphal, with the latter the most likely to end up in the class. They'll also likely take one more offensive lineman, though the top candidate for that spot is less clear—IL OL Jamarco Jones is the highest-rated target and has Michigan among his favorites, but Ohio State is presumed to hold the edge in his recruitment.
|10/11/2018 - 8:59am||You want kids to get on…||
You want kids to get on campus as soon as you can. They would not delay his visit, it would only hurt IMO. Who knows if he ever takes it in the future. You get his visit while you can. I don't think this is a good sign.
Harrison visiting is a great sign IMO. I hope the crowd is into the game. Hope our ends show out to, but its hard to against Wiscy because they pass 8 times a game.

Even if it is not Georgia, aren't we sitting 3rd or 4th?

Chase may be a bit better than Patrick Massey or Dan Rumishek.
|10/05/2018 - 9:10am||Isaiah Wilson still blows my…||
Isaiah Wilson still blows my mind. Lock for Michigan until he wasn't. Something happened quickly.
|10/01/2018 - 12:30pm||It does seem that their are…||
It does seem that their are quite a few injuries, but also remember that some are 'fake'. Some of the players will fake an injury to save a timeout or slow down a no-huddle offense when a team is on a roll, or defense is tired or discombobulated.
It sucks as a fan, unless its your teams defense the offense is pounding no huddle with a ton of momentum.
|09/30/2018 - 10:48am||5 straight first and 10's,…||
5 straight first and 10's, and Harbaugh ran the same fucking play - slamming Higdon up the middle for 1 yard. The definition of insanity. I am so fucking sick of our offensive play calling. Its a joke. At least our defense is fun to watch.

2 are running backs, 1 is slot. There are not 3 recruits who will play RB in this class.

Purdue is off to a horrid start, and it will probably get worse.
Root for Washington State over USC. USC is off to a horrid start. Ford very well could take a closer look at us if USC keeps falling apart.

One of the ones we had zero chance of getting unfortunately - Rattler. Im not high on this QB class this year anyway.
|09/19/2018 - 12:31pm||DL and RB are the strongest…||
DL and RB are the strongest position groups. Im fine with the entire DB group as is also.
OL is ok - would like to grab one more guy because we know it is tough to scout the success of that position. Need a Tackle though.
Not crazy at all with QB, WR and LB recruiting.
|09/18/2018 - 9:39am||What thread by him are you…||
What thread by him are you referring to? I would personally like to read it, because he is probably fairly correct.
Just because an opinion is not super rosey doesn't mean it is incorrect. It just means you probably do not want to believe it. Take for example my new favorite analyst, Doug Skene (does a couple thingys a week for Rivals). Read his opinion column after games, and compare it to the other guy in the same thread (this week was Ryan Van Burgen). Skene is objective/real. He is a stud analysts and nails what is wrong. The other guy is always super rosey.
There is something wrong with this team (besides just our 2 tackles). I cannot pin-point it yet, but something is wrong. On paper, this should be a more talented team than 2016, 2006 maybe. This team should be destroying everyone, Notre Dame included. But they are not.
One thing i can say is that Patterson is an absolute stud. Kid is amazing. If he had time to throw he would be setting every single season passing record Michigan has. I hate that we will probably be wasting his talents.

You think im funny? Whats so funny about me? Do i LOOK funny!?!?!?!
|08/30/2018 - 9:55am||Nice being a contrarian, but…||
Nice being a contrarian, but this score is impossible. The only way this game is even close (ND comes within 10) is if there are alot of horrible roughing/PI calls on our defense. Only chance ND has to keep this game close is the 13th man (refs).
Michigan blows the fuck out of ND. This Mich team is more loaded than any Michigan team i recall - prob 2006 or 2003 loaded, and if this team wins less than 10 games this year, i will have lost complete faith in Harbaugh. THIS is the year, because after another mass exodus to the NFL, next year will be another 5 loss rebuilding year.
If Michigan misses the playoffs this year, it is a complete waste of elite talent and absolute failure on Harbaughs part. He is pissed and under some pressure from last year. He knows what he has this year and is focused.
Michigan pounds the living shit out of ND Saturday, and only way ND moves the ball consistantly is because big penaltys on our defense.
30 - 10 ish and that is with at night on the road loud crowd refs in their pocket! Were too loaded, focused, talented and well coached.

Local band here in the tri-cities (Bay City, Saginaw, Midland) name 'The Rock Show' is a very good journey tribute band. Lead singer does Perry very well.

Who is hotter, her or the blonde?
Obviously Marsha Brady over both.
|08/14/2018 - 3:43pm||I always had nuetral…||
I always had nuetral feelings toward Durkin. I always thought his defenses were a product of inheriting from Mattison, plus he had Mattison on staff. It was really 75% (or more) Mattison's defense IMO.
I have way more respect for the coaching job of Don Brown than Durkin. What Don Brown did at shitty BC with shit players against amazing offenses trumps anything Durkin did anywhere. There also seems to be great chemistry/respect between Brown and Mattison.
|08/03/2018 - 3:49pm||I find it extremely hard to…||
I find it extremely hard to believe he is a better blocker than McKeon - i personally really like McKeon as our #1 TE. He has the best hands and can block the best. Gentry gets the nod as a strict big play TE, but McKeon is Jake Butt 2.0

Look at Higdon's YPC last 2 years behind one of the worst OLs at Michigan.
If no one is on the Higdon bandwagon by now, im not sure what games they are watching. Hes arguably the best running back since Thomas.
|07/16/2018 - 10:36pm||Imo anything less than…||
Imo anything less than making the playoffs is a disappointment. This returning team is just too good. The players know this too. And Harbaugh hates losing more than anyone ... magnify the frustrations we felt last year by 10 for him. Pressure is on him especially because next year will be a rebuilding year after sending 9 guys to the league.

Did you giggle seeing Hinton dropping 10 spots on 247, thus dropping him from 5* status on composite? glass houses.

I love your optimism, but you are setting up hundreds of people in there to be disappointed. You think we are higher on the pecking order than we actually are on many of those recruits.

I would too. He is the first person i thought of. Black, in his limited time, looked like an absolute stud in the making.

There are a bunch of guys that are getting rating bumps for sure. And it’s for all the right reasons. There are also at least 2 possibly 3 that are getting bumped the other way. What’s important to me is we are going to have twice as many (probably 3 times) that are moving up than down.
This staff does an excellent job finding gems. Make no mistake about it.
|07/03/2018 - 8:27am||If you read the evaluation…||
If you read the evaluation of him from 247 sports, you would think he is a 5* or borderline 5* very high 4*. The rave about him. Then you look at the ranking 247 sports gives him .... mid 3*?
Why the hell are services so out of whack? Laziness.

With this returning defense, if we get 9 wins, that would be extremely fucking unsuccessfull. Im sorry, and screw the schedule (great teams - schedule doesnt matter) because anything short of the playoffs with this team, and it is an unsuccessful season (back to back).

"Every young Wolverines fan will eventually declare someone the “Greatest player in Michigan history” until some older fan corrects him: It’s Tom Harmon."
That is because an even older fan cannot correct the old fan that says Tom Harmon. #1 RB is Willie Heston, not Tom Harmon.
Great list though.

If in-state recruiting rankings mattered, Beilein would have been out of a job years and years ago. The key is to find good, solid coachable players who fit your scheme.
If your going to star-gaze in-state players who commit elsewhere then write your negative opinion on it as gospel here, please go post elsewhere because all your going to do is drive the community here away to other sites (unless that is your goal).
And if you keep doing it, this site needs to ban you, are at least put in place a rule that if your at so much negative points, you cannot start a new post or even post period - only read.
|06/01/2018 - 3:13pm||One of my top 5 players of||
One of my top 5 players of all time never comes up on these lists. The best defensive back pre/post Woodson IMO ... Tripp Welbourne. If your young, your excused. I urge you to look him up. If you watched Michigan football late 80s shame on you for not listing the best safety Michigan has ever had!
