|03/05/2018 - 6:02pm||I would like to think||
we are a 3 seed playing in Detroit. However I can't beleive MSU only dropped to #4 in the recent AP poll. You know we will get screwed and they definitely put MSU in Detroit. So it comes down to Purdue or Michigan for the second spot. I don't feel good about it based on the initial NCAA projections with purdue being so high. But then again they can't say it is head to head (Purdue winning 2 of 3) when we swept MSU. It will be very interesting. I am more concerned with who our second round opponent would be. Hoping for the 3 seed to get the 6 seed and avoid the #1's. The two #1's that I want to stear clear of is Virginia and Villanova. Would also prefer to stay away from Duke. Looking at the possible #5 & #6's, who would you like to see in our bracket? Arkansas, Nevada, young Kentucky, TCU, Miami, maybe Houston? I think WVU falls to a #5, but I would want to stay away from them with there high pressure and huge potential. I think they are one of the most underachieving teams this season, but could do damage in the tournament.

up until Drevno took over Oklahoma's play calling in the overtimes.
|12/15/2017 - 11:58am||Dantonio just following Harbaugh's instructions||
Harbaugh said he would prefer Dantonio kep Michigan out of his Bowl placement discussions. Dantonio listened and chose not to offer a remark. Perfectly fine by me. The reporter was horrid however. Should have gotten feedback from both coaches on the playoff system and he totally wiffed on how he brought up the pants. Should have just said how much they didn't sell for to get a quick response. Playing a guessing game was just stupid. Plus he left his California audience wondering?
|12/10/2017 - 12:20pm||Bush League?||
This artiicle is bush league if you ask me. Mentioning he doesn't blame the Ole Miss players potentially transferring for doing what's best for them, but that it is a complete bush league hack job by Harbaugh for accepting them. And that Harbaugh's on the hot seat. I am pretty sure this writer is a hack!
|12/10/2017 - 11:40am||Understood||
But is it assumed he automatically loses his? He is nowhere on the list. Not even listed in black as those without scholarship that are contributors.
|12/10/2017 - 11:15am||Scholarship Numbers||
After looking at the Touch the Banner breakdown on scholarship numbers, one name not mentioned is Jordan Glasgow. I thought he was now on scholarship? Was the scholarship only guaranteed for this past season?
|12/06/2017 - 4:31pm||Call us by our new name||
The Ole Mich Runnin' Wolverines! Best be careful though regarding tampering. Ole Miss is out for blood!
|09/16/2017 - 1:50pm||Great Start!||
Now someone hold up a trash can so we can get a turnover!
|09/13/2017 - 9:12pm||Big Ten is Tough Enough||
No need to schedule top non-conference competition when playing in the Big Ten. People have already been complaining about the 2020 schedule at Washington and Virginia Tech. Also want to avoid getting called out for playing a weak non-conference schedule. So I would focus on recruiting locations and mid level teams.
If we do well this weekend against Air Force, I say go ahead and bring on Georgia Tech. and if we don't then nevermind lets move on.
FAU - Hotbed for recruiting and should Lane Kiffin actually last more than a year or two would be a ton of fun kicking his ass!
UAB - Another way to stick it to Alabama without actually playing them.
Others would be Duke, Wake Forest, Houston, Baylor, California, Kentucky
Save the Alabama, Clemson, USC, FSU's of the world until the college football playoff!
|09/06/2017 - 4:12pm||3rd & 6 From the 12||
Michigan up 20-17 with a 3rd & 6 from the Florida12 yard line. Florida has everyone up on the line of scrimmage. I thought Speight completely botched this play. I think the move is to go to Perry who immediately beats the saftey with a open lane right down the middle. Speight throws the fade route poorly to Crawford. I am no football coach, but isn't a fade typically when you can get 1v1 coverage on the outside and to avoid the safeties in the middle? When the safteies crowd the line of scrimmage, I think it makes more sense to attack them and Perry clearly had his guy beat. Speight was determined to throw the fade and I don't think he really read the defense on that play.
Speight still gives us the best chance to win and I think he will improve in these areas. My concern is the overthrows as he seems to get lazy with his mechanics.
|09/06/2017 - 10:02am||My grades||
QB C- (At least we don't have to put up with Zaire!) I beleive Speight will get better. Remember where he has come from. Harbaugh had little faith when he brought in O'Korn and recruited Gentry heavily late. He was a 3 star recruit. He continues to beat out other higher rated recruits. He had a rough ending to last season with the shoulder injury. With Harbaugh and Hamilton coaching him up, this area should improve. He has a few more weeks to get everything cleaned up.
WR/TE C+ Too many drops. Harbaugh took issue with some blocking during the game from the TE's. Crawford only 1 catch for a measly 3 yards as he doesn't even turn to get up field. Perry showed promise, but stupid spinning ball habit cost him (could have gotten 2 penalties for this) Slow learner? With his off field issues, he needs to be squeaky clean and just play ball. Tarik did well after the one drop. DPJ, McDoom, and Wheatley need to get more involved.
DB - B+ This was an area of major concern and still will be with the lack of depth. Please keep us healthy back there!!! All did there jobs well with no major errors in coverage. Was pleased with Hill, Watson, Kinnell, and Metellus. Need to see more from Long.
|09/05/2017 - 6:26pm||Game Stats||
When do game stats become official? It sounded like Harbaugh was annoyed Gary didn't get credited with a half sack. On the other hand, Tarik Black is listed as having a sack for a 5 yard loss and a forced fumble when it should have been credited to Hudson.
|10/31/2016 - 11:54am||Little Brother?||
I think we need to drop the Little Brother reference. Do you really want to associate a losing program that is currently 2-6 as being any part of our family? We would be better off calling Western Michigan Little Brother now.
|10/31/2016 - 11:43am||Paul's Pants||
We should be able to paint the pants maize or at least blue when it belongs to us. The green needs to go!
|10/08/2016 - 10:24pm||15 punts and not a single||
15 punts and not a single block? Special teams going to get their ass chewed out!
|10/08/2016 - 8:50pm||Peppers does everything!||
I thought he was going to fire the cannon after that TD. Pretty sure he thought about it!
|10/07/2016 - 4:30pm||Michigan Wins||
|10/07/2016 - 4:27pm||I am going to try to tailgate||
I am going to try to tailgate at Johnson Park. I believe it is $45 to park though. Beats standing in line for a shuttle back to the car after the game. Remember, Rutger's fans plan to stripe the field. Odd sections are wearing black, even sections are wearing red. I think it make sense to wear maize in the black sections and blue in the red sections, but maize will probably work in the red sections too. Anyone recall how many Michigan fans were at the 2014 game? Could this year be close to a 50/50 split?
|02/05/2015 - 10:56am||And Sharp saying more shit||
about how Harbaugh's recruiting class only proves he needs more time. In a seperate article the FREEP takes a positive spin on MSU's recruiting class that could only manage to finish 22nd after back to back top five finishes. Why doesn't the FREEP focus on the fact that 22nd is about the best MSU can and will ever do instead of Michigan only a few spots back in the 30's being considered a failure by some! Michigan ended up with 6 four star prospects according to 247 sports compared to 5 by MSU. But one team is perceived as expanding their brand to land national recruits while the other just needs more time. Harbaugh and staff did a tremendous job in the limited time he had should have been the focus. Shit, the guy didn't even know who the top recruits where just 6 weeks ago. One thing is for sure, next year Michigan will be right back where it belongs well ahead of Sparty in the recruiting scene. Lets just see what spin the FREEP decides to put on it then.
|02/04/2015 - 5:10pm||Any concern that the LOI is not in yet?||
I need to see proof before celebrating this one. It has been a crazy day!
|01/13/2015 - 12:06am||I feel bad||
for our basketball team that has to walk into that shit hole tomorrow night.
|01/09/2015 - 8:42pm||Wheatley was my favorite||
but Biakabutuka was a close second. Can't forget his 313 yards rushing vs. Ohio in '95. My only question in regards to Wheatley, how does he let his son grow up being a Trojan fan?

Common are you for real? Go back and study the bracket my friend. Barring any upsets 1 plays 4 and 2 plays 3.

I would not let Rawls slip away. Why not offer to greyshirt him?

I haven't heard much on OL Pat Flavin recently. Is he solid with Illinois?
