01/11/2018 - 9:18pm Reality Perspective

This team is currently unranked, and likely 3-3 in conference after Saturday. That is not the type of performance matching your program description.

01/02/2018 - 9:53pm Slow Down

This team is still unranked and on the bubble. Our rival is ranked Number 1. The gap between Izzo and Beilein is larger than Harbaugh and Dantonio.

01/02/2018 - 1:44pm Brian Has Recently Added Quite a Number of Sponsors

If I’m a paying sponsor, I would not be happy with anything the blog owner does to tick off the blog visitors. Perhaps he’ll get some feedback from them.

12/19/2017 - 12:01pm Numbers for OSU and Penn State?

Those are the benchmarks. Clemson’s results are impacted dramatically by the great QB play they have had the last three years. Averages are an indicator, but so are game changers at QB and RB. Harbaugh has not put such a player yet on the field in three years. OSU and Penn State have had far superior QB/RBs and that makes a huge difference.

12/19/2017 - 11:53am Still a Surprising Offer/Commmit

Both Oliver Martin and Tarik Black are RS, so they are like 2018 recruits as far as remaining eligibility. Also, not a fan of a kid committing without even visiting campus.

11/18/2017 - 10:19pm Bo Beat Ohio and Won The Big Ten

And he did it with all the previous coach’s players! Bo’s first freshman class at UM in 1969 did not play a down, since freshman were ineligible.

11/16/2017 - 9:04pm Donations to Motts Hospital and UM are Significant

Anyone that isn’t a criminal and donates money, as Brandon has done for many years and many millions, is OK with me. The more he gets in outrageous compensation the more he might donate.

10/26/2017 - 5:17pm Just Win Baby

Michigan could have also lost games to inferior programs, if not for good luck. Minnesota in 2015, a loss if the Gopher WR gets one more yard—goal line stand wins for Michigan. Two OT games at IU. Bottom line is Harbaugh is now even behind Franklin at Penn State. Even though Harbaugh is 2-1 against Franklin, Penn State has won a Big Ten title in year 3, beating OSU, and just schooled Harbaugh on National prime time. Franklin costs half as much as Harbaugh as well, and is not included in the OP metrics, since not considered elite.

10/26/2017 - 3:17pm Total Wins is One Metric

I would argue that a coach’s record against rivals and division/conference championships is more important metric of accomplishments. Harbaugh has a very poor record against rivals while at UM and has never won even a division title at Stanford and Michigan over 7 years. David Shaw won the PAC 12 in the second year after Harbaugh’s departure to the NFL.

09/27/2017 - 10:28pm Happy Harbaugh is Our Coach

Couldn’t name any coach better for us. But, he needs to beat OSU and win the Big Ten. Many ridicule Franklin at Penn State, but he did that in year 3.

08/08/2017 - 5:37pm JoePa Went for Two!

I was also there with a PSU buddy. The Nits scored their TD late to avoid the shutout. We laughed hard about JoePa going for 2. Listened to the PSU post game shows all the way back to Northern NJ. Great memories?

08/02/2017 - 4:46pm Great Game-Bo's First Win Over Buckeyes

I was also a freshman in 1969! We are both getting old!

08/01/2017 - 3:06pm Yes, A Great Read!

Perhaps we can get some pre-Red stories of Yost. When I was at school, the team played at the Coliseum and Yost was opened for hockey my junior year in the early seventies. I don't recall free tickets every being given out to students! The student section was located on the same side of the rink as today, but on the opposite side of the player benches. We sat out overnight to get our student tickets. My future wife took care of those tickets for me and my friends. I can still remember playing intramural hockey at Yost and eating subs at Pizza Bob's after games. The players at the time earned a few extra bucks by refereeing the IM games.

Caught a bunch off Marathon in the Keys. Biggest was almost 19 pounds. Great fish for eating! Restaurants there do a great hook and cook.

06/15/2017 - 4:21pm Good Thoughts

Another fairness issue is low salaries, in general, in rural areas of MI versus major cities. Admissions from farming areas may go up, along with more kids from the UP. Admissions have a lot of protected groups, including minorities and undocumented immigrants(that graduate from MI high schools). With two recent changes in admissions polices, undocumented immigrants are now treated like residents for tuition and now can get free tuition as well. Hope the cash cow of OOS students can continue to afford such subsidies.

06/14/2017 - 6:41pm Bill Martin Developed the Master Plan

As much as we all enjoy a good Brandon joke, Bill Martin put the Master Plan together and Brandon/Hackett/Manuel have been finishing those plans. The most costly one by far was Michigan Stadium at well over $225 Million. Designed, approved and completed under Martin.

04/17/2017 - 5:18pm Recent History

Last year Wilton started over O'Korn. Wilton had no starts and O'Korn over 10. Wilton won the job. I'm expecting Peters to start. Henne started as a true freshman under Lloyd with only 2 months on campus. Harbaugh will have Peters on campus for 20 months before he would start a game. If Harbaugh can't get Peters, his hand-picked guy, ready to play at a high level, he is not performing as the QB whisperer.

03/27/2017 - 10:16am Excellent, Was Just There

Chartered out of Marathon and caught a 19 pound mutton snapper-great eating. Also, went 20 plus miles out to Marathon Hump for Black fin tuna. Caught 10, lost 10 more. Between 15-25 pounds, so lots of fish to eat!

02/25/2017 - 11:03pm Still 7th

Can't get too excited when we are in the position we are in. If we win the last 2 on the road it will be different. Still are underperforming!!!!

They made an extra large sub back in the early 70's. Think the challenge was to eat the Destroyer in under 8 minutes. Go to place walking back from IM hockey games.

12/31/2016 - 11:40am Next Year is Key for Harbaugh

Next Year is Key for Harbaugh to Maintain Performance
It can be argued that Hoke's first two years are better than Harbaugh's. But then we all know what happened after that! Hoke went 3-3 vs Ohio, ND, and Sparty. Harbaugh 1-3. Hoke had 11 win season and a major bowl win. Harbaugh had 10-3 and a minor bowl win. Hoke was undefeated at home, but Harbaugh has lost 2. Hoke used RichRod players and Harbaugh used Hoke players in their first two years. Certainly Harbaugh's teams give us much hope for the future, but when are we going to get even an average OL? Harbaugh is the best coach for our program and we will need to be patient.

Obvious That Recruits Matter
UCLA's freshman dominated our seniors/juniors. Only one of our freshman played in non-garbage time and looked lost. I like JB and think he has done a good job, but the trajectory is not looking good. People always debate whether Michigan can be elite and compete with UCLA, Kansas and Kentucky consistently. For me it must be about competing with MSU. With JB's contract and age(relative to retirement), the AD has a hard choice. Make a change or ride out the next 4-5 years until JB retires.

MSU game last year-after getting the ball turned over on downs could not get a first down and then the punt that can't be named happened. Also, this year with Wisconsin, had multiple chances to run out the clock before the interception by Lewis.

Penn State had fireworks at their White Out vs. Ohio State. Seems like it was a major factor in the victory. The Regents would certainly let Harbaugh do fireworks.

Mostly Agree
Players should behave as part of the team for team activities. They have plenty of opportunities as students to lead or participate in commenting on social issues. Not sure how coach would react if the entire team demonstrated or if players choose a number of social issues to demonstrate their support. So, is it OK for groups of 7-10 players each doing something different to support police, not support police, support military, not support military, support gay rights, not support gay rights, etc.?

Student Tickets Level
Seem to recall that post the Hoke 2011 season student season tickets were 22,000. Then they dropped to 14-15,000 and recovered to about 18,000 with Harbaugh. Wonder why we can't get back to 22,000, which was for more expensive seats! That was before Brandon reduced student ticket prices by 30% which has been in place the last two years. So, it should be over 20,000, not under!
