Was Sanford Robertson pissed about getting no return on his gift while Michigan had no designated offensive coordinator?

That's my new go-to "What if?" What if Josh Gordon had gone to Michigan?

12/29/2018 - 10:02pm Wish list for 2019:


Wish list for 2019:

  --Charbonet and Turner are the main ballcarriers.

  --Evans turns into a slot/APB, getting ball in space with regularity.

  --Don't be afraid to start McCaffrey

  --Black, Collins, DPJ 50 catches each

I'd argue 2016 Speight was the best, but Shea is running third behind Speight '16/Rudock. I kinda wish we were headed into next season with McCaffrey in charge, but Shea's going to be the guy to beat.

Back in my day (80s), seemed like anyone who went to another Michigan college would be like, "Oh, you go to Michigan? I am disgusted by your arrogance, person I just met."

And yes, I did visit Ferris a couple of times. The people who had no affiliation were always pro-Michigan, because winning.

Crazy how much lower the Nebraska numbers are than everyone else

Always heard OSU was a place that tries to weed out its huge number of freshmen, send them to Miami-Lima if they can't hack it.

Just hope we don't get matched up against Radford or Belmont early in the tournament

Saw a photo of Harbaugh at Trevor Keegan's house on Thursday if anyone cares.

Long way to go, but Iggy going in the teens certainly seems possible. Another guy who's NBA stock is going to rise is Teske. A 7-footer who can move his feet defensively and shoot outside jumpers will have admirers.

I think you're right. He's late round or undrafted if he comes out this year.

11/26/2018 - 2:31pm I think Michigan plays in…

I think Michigan plays in the national championship game in 2001 if Henson stayed. They lost by 5 at Washington, lost Clockgate game at MSU and at home to an average OSU team. M's defense was much better than expected that season.

Pretty sure Henson wishes he had stayed. It's a shame. He probably would have been a top-10 draft pick in the NFL as well.

11/26/2018 - 2:25pm Being a semi old-timer, can…

Being a semi old-timer, can't forget that Michigan dominated Ohio State for 25 years. From 1976-2000, led the series 17-7-1 and a couple of those losses were after Michigan had already clinched the Rose Bowl. Rose Bowl appearances were 11-3 during that time frame, back when going to Pasadena meant everything. Also ruined their perfect season 3 times in 90s.

The dominance wasn't like it is now in OSU's favor, but the cycle can change again and probably will soon.

11/26/2018 - 2:13pm Don't underestimate his…

Don't underestimate his impact in creating a ton of sacks for Winovich, Hurst and others. He drew the most attention when healthy.

11/26/2018 - 11:47am I feel like last year…

I feel like last year Michigan knew it was a clear underdog, came out focused with a great game plan, and if any slightly below average QB had been on the field, Michigan would have won.

This year it seemed like Michigan figured it could line up and do what it always does and win the game, while OSU was focused with a great game plan. Maybe Michigan didn't acknowledge the danger.

Not sure it's realistic to pick a turning point, but when Shea underthrew wide-open Gentry, then the blocked punt happened, I think on the very next play ... you wonder what could have been.

If Bump knew how to fill the seats, Canham would have loved him.

11/15/2018 - 12:36am Yeah, why are they No. 8?

Yeah, why are they No. 8?

Keep in mind, Michigan in playoffs equals ratings gold, which can lead to higher rights fees and more $$$ in NCAA execs' pockets.

Don't trust anyone running the show, but I think it's very possible Alabama gets left out if it loses SEC title game. The NCAA knows everyone is sick of Ala/Clem and anxious to get some new teams in there, not to mention new regions of the country.

11/04/2018 - 4:33pm And I remember a couple of…

And I remember a couple of times when Michigan had wrapped up the Big Ten title before the game and got whomped in Columbus -- 1982 & 2004

10/22/2018 - 3:33pm 1. So nice that when missing…

1. So nice that when missing a player of Rashan Gary's caliber, can feel extremely confident with the replacements. The Bad Hoke recruiting voids will soon be behind us.

2. As a student in the 80s, heard George Perles say a couple times, "We're going to get bigger and stronger, and we're going to do it the right way." I suppose it's possible he meant that when he said it, then realized he was going to get fired if he didn't resort to the wrong way.

Listened to some of it on Sirius. Got to respect Blaha's career, but he sounds like he's 85 years old now. Painful.

09/18/2018 - 2:24pm Been to a variety of games…

Been to a variety of games the past couple years because my son is looking at colleges and every time the stadium is half-empty by mid 3rd quarter.

I was at an FCS game broadcast on ESPN+ last Saturday and it still took forever.

09/11/2018 - 1:05pm What was Higdon's grade, I…

What was Higdon's grade, I wonder? He seemed to play well.

09/11/2018 - 1:04pm That punter injury was…

That punter injury was pretty shitty. He kicks the ball and takes a helmet to the shin, but play was blown dead for a false start and MSU gets penalized 5 yards while roughing the kicker ignored. That would really suck if I cared about that team.

09/05/2018 - 10:22am Good point. This, plus the…

Good point. This, plus the fact our two biggest rivals have decided nothing else matters besides winning, will make it tough. But Wisconsin is a good example of a program that succeeds in a rough environment, though it does have the benefit of playing in the BT West. Badgers' have built their whole program around the OL and every year having fourth- and fifth-year guys who are ready to play.

09/01/2018 - 11:25pm As horrible as we played,…

As horrible as we played, could have easily won the game. Sack on 2nd-and-goal at the 2, sack while in field-goal range in 2ndQ, botched hold, roughing the passer on a 3rd down stop -- that's a net 14 points on stupid mistakes.

ND pulled a couple great plays out of their ass, but this result was such a fail on Michigan's part.

08/11/2018 - 12:19am This story sounds a lot like…

This story sounds a lot like what happened at Northwestern with Rashidi Wheeler in 2001. He was clearly struggling in a workout with no coaches around and no one did anything until it was too late. Hard to believe the stupidity; feel horrible for the family.

08/10/2018 - 12:09am Don't know the true story,…

Don't know the true story, but this report is not the least bit credible

08/06/2018 - 11:18pm Think you make a good point…

Think you make a good point about Courtney Smith being much better off if Zach kept his high-paying job at OSU. Things must have gotten really bad for her to repeatedly involve police. Wait no, she was crazy.

Wonder if he ever improved at "Equate meeting room?"

08/06/2018 - 11:04pm Think I'm more concerned…

Think I'm more concerned with Kinnel/Metellus than anyone on D-Line.

My list would start with Shea, LT, RT, Black/DPJ.

07/19/2018 - 5:14pm Speight clearly deserved to…

Speight clearly deserved to start. I'll be asking myself for a long time, "How could JOK possibly have been that bad and how did he end up as the starting QB at Michigan?"

Underrated nominees: UCLA and Minnesota

What if you get an order and then that order is not listed as one of your options?

05/25/2018 - 9:33am amway

Seems to me like there could be something to this. Izzo looking for a convenient exit and probably $20 mil guaranteed has his people reach out to NBA owners who are all from Michigan.

05/23/2018 - 11:15am Dickerson

He has a lot of shiftiness for a RB his size. Blazing speed is overrated for a RB, but he still ran away from people.

His high school reportedly hired Eric Dickerson as running backs coach.

05/16/2018 - 10:02pm maybe by leaving early

I think Michigan would have played in the national title game if Henson played his senior year. Lost 3 very winnable games and defense was better than expected

05/16/2018 - 9:37pm Agreed

I'd like to see them try the maize jerseys with white pants at an early-season non con when it's usually hot.

05/11/2018 - 11:30pm Why

Why doesn't the No. 1 seed play in the first quarterfinal? Haven't they earned the advantage of getting extra rest and not getting stuck starting a game at 10:15 p.m.?

05/11/2018 - 9:10pm Hinton

Thing about Hinton is he has a dad who played and probably much like Devin Bush Sr., he doesn't want his son going to a place where playing school is considered an annoyance.

05/11/2018 - 1:52pm Watched

I watched Carton play in an AAU game last summer. When it was over, I assumed he was about 6-4, but I see he's listed at 6-1. Impressive for a guy that size to play at the basket as much as he does.

05/09/2018 - 11:07am Central

But Shane played well at Central, especially late in the season. I think Michigan wins 2 or 3 more games last year if Shane stayed and JOK left.

Glad to see he's getting a look with the Lions.

05/01/2018 - 12:40pm Bucks

As a student got hit in the face with a roll of toilet paper at OSU, but was probably asking for it. And it's not like it hurt.

04/27/2018 - 11:07pm So

So cool Michigan is doing this. Rome and Paris in consecutive years -- nowhere else in college football can you get this experience.

04/25/2018 - 2:10pm old news

The allegations about Butler have been going on for a long time. At one point, a player on one of the early Penn State powerhouse teams kept playing for him while her sister was suing him for sexual abuse. It all kept blowing over, but some of his former players have stayed determined to make sure this remains in the public light.

Butler has been hovering between predator and powerful club coach for a couple of decades.

04/20/2018 - 10:32am How

How has the atmosphere changed at Michigan Stadium since they cracked down on carrying in alcohol? As I'm sure many of you remember, in the 80s and probably earlier, you could take a 12 pack, wrap it under your coat and walk right in.

04/20/2018 - 10:29am Ohio law

Did Ohio pass a state law requiring beer sales at all college football stadiums? It dominates that map.

04/19/2018 - 2:52pm paw

Paw Paw is my favorite stopping point on the drive from Chicago to AA. We need this guy!

04/05/2018 - 8:04pm chance

Is there a chance Jack plays at Michigan? Asking because I have no idea. That ESPN story was very confusing.
