How about waiting until they stop a good offense before labeling them as elite?  Or at least stopping someone late in the game when it means something. They've had one opportunity this year and failed.  Please don't tell me they shut down ND in the second half-the damage had been done and ND was pretty vanilla after building up a lead.

They performed poorly against Wisconsin, Penn State, and OSU (let's not forget the bowl game as well).  These statistics are very misleading when they come against weak opponents.

Which one of the coaches (or was it a player) that said DPJ was "becoming a natural" on punt returns?

May be the best advice ever to appear on this blog. You do miss the fun of options trading however!

I've been watching M football since my freshman year in 71. You must be thinking of a different Demetrius Brown-terrible accuracy and judgment.

We're the same age-he seemed to save his HR's for Sundays

Homeland, Billions, and Ozark. If you've never seen The Wire you should definitely get it-I believe it's best series ever (and I'm older than most of the people on this site).

So the fortunes of hockey are improving and basketball is on an upwards trajectory-now if we can just do something about that other program.

We've got a helluva lot better shot with NPF or Anderson than you ever will

Is it really a great idea to put a foreign protein into his lymphatic system for the next twenty years? Don't want to be a spoilsport but there is a health issue here.

01/14/2018 - 3:53pm Sucky people and organizations

Amen to that

01/01/2018 - 6:09pm oklahoma offense

1. We lack their playmakers

2. We have a substandard o line

3. We have mediocre play at QB

If you can fix that in eight months, please apply for a staff position

12/24/2017 - 10:04am Proposal

Dangerous move. I know someone who did the same thing, woman felt pressured to say yes. Marriage ended on very bad terms.

12/02/2017 - 7:50pm MSU

Hard to say they're fading away when they have a better record than us and after they keep winning in our stadium. Let me know the next time we achieve a quality win.

11/16/2017 - 4:31pm Spread

In the late 60's OSU was a 51 pt favorite over Illinois. I took the points and lost. It remains the best bet I ever made.

11/06/2017 - 1:17pm Black returning

If he's not ready until OSU I would save his redshirt; already burned for Collins and DPJ. It would be nice to have 4 yrs of Black and Martin.

10/26/2017 - 8:01am O line

I posted in 2013 that we wouldn't have solid line play until 2015. This is getting really old.

10/14/2017 - 8:25pm Prime time television

Another bad performance on national tv could damage our recruiting and at this rate, that's all we have to look forward to

10/14/2017 - 12:01pm Immediate impact

Amen brother. Would be nice to see some of our impact players actually have an impact. Or to see our not so highly rated recruits get coached up and perform at an acceptable level. Probably get negged for this but we have have underperformed every game since Florida. Don't see this with other programs that are allegedly dumpster fires (e.g. MSU)

10/13/2017 - 11:37pm Underclass QB

Many of the successful underclassmen playing QB (e.g. Darnold) are surrounded by talented upperclassmen-makes for an easier time

10/08/2017 - 1:36pm Elite RB recruits

If you fit that description would you come to Michigan to run behind our o line? We haven't blocked well since the Sugar Bowl. Najee Harris made the right choice.

10/07/2017 - 11:31pm Play selection

1). MSU has a relatively weak secondary

2). You're looking at a monsoon in the second half

Why not air it out when you have a chance?

09/24/2017 - 2:12pm MSU

I agree-their season can be saved with one victory. Their o line is better than ours and they have some talented skill people. I'm not convinced our offense can do much against them.

09/11/2017 - 8:05am Inaccurate throws

We've heard that Speight dropped weight during the offseason. Maybe he's gotten too light and too strong and his throws are sailing. I say let him pound the pizza and cheeseburgers and bring those balls back down to the receivers.

07/22/2017 - 10:33am Seating

There's no question that the sight lines are impaired at the lower rows but for some teams this is an advantage. For example to watch Sparty I would recommend the east side of the stadium between rows 3 and 9.

07/20/2017 - 2:20pm Torn Achilles

No sarcasm here-I genuinely feel sorry for anyone in this situation. Don't know if he was an NFL prospect-can't imagine giving up your dreams at this young age.

06/18/2017 - 9:22pm Where you live influences the

Where you live influences the feelings. I have to associate with sparties here in the Detroit area and their recent success is annoying. My former roommate lives in Dayton and never deals with little brother; he is surrounded by buckeyes. I have also heard former players say that OSU and ND were always tough games but that MSU was a dirty game. It's hard to respect a team like that. That's without considering the history of PED usage as well as the multiple assaults against women, students, and other athletes.

Lastly I've never met a buckeye who said he could gone to Michigan.

1. Said hello to Henry Kissinger when I lived in NYC

2. Passed Gen. Colin Powell walking in DC

3. Posed for a picture with 4 of 5 Russian Red Wings (no Fedorov)

4. Met Rodney Dangerfield in the bathroom of his club in New York

05/26/2017 - 11:44pm Student housing

My wife and I explored being landlords in A2 (we live reasonably close). Was scared off by the high cost and age of the buildings. Ended up buying student homes in a PAC 12 college town where we had a good contact. It's been a very good experience for us. Housing stock is newer and the demand has been high. Heard much negativity re: long distance ownership but we've done well.

Really never expected Najee (hope to be wrong) but having DPJ and Collins on the outside with McDoom in the slot would be dynamite.

Two comments after the first half: 1. Glad we weren't eligible for the Rose Bowl; couldn't hang with USC; 2. I don't think we could beat PSU now.

It sounds as though he made significant contributions to the world after football. What a terrible loss! This bothers me more than the loss of drug addicted or alcoholic celebs who are celebrated in the media throughout the year.

I went with my sons when they had Clarett. We wore neutral colors which was the same as wearing Michigan colors. One of their "students" tried to knock me down before the game-no problems afterwards since they won.

1960 World Series-Yankees won three lopsided games and lost four close ones including game 7 with Mazeroski's walk off. I felt sorry for the Yankees (didn't know the history of the franchise) and it fueled my lifelong Yankee fandom

03/08/2016 - 7:43pm Allergies and parasites

The first person to try this actually went to a village in Africa and walked barefoot knowing he would become infected. He became sick due to the infestation but when he recovered, his asthma and allergies were much improved. He (or someone else) tried to make a business of this by selling infected fecal material. The business was shut down by the FDA.

There is a legitimate research lab in England trying to study this question. The underlying theory is that a parasitic infestation will cause the immune system to direct Immunoglobulin E (IgE) against the parasite as opposed to triggering allergic reactions.

Everyone is an expert on pregnancy and child rearing so you will be bombarded with advice-ignore most of what you hear.

People have short memories and what they believe worked for them may be a result of sleep deprivation-trust your instincts.

Henry Kissinger (surrounded by security) walked by when I lived in NYC,passed Gen. Colin Powell walking to dinner in DC ( no security) and stood next to Barry Sanders while getting food at The Palace (don't think anyone else recognized him)

It wasn't one bad night-it was one night that was made public. Local police have told me about other incidents that were hushed up. That was obviously before cell phones and social media.

08/02/2014 - 10:52am Comcast pricing

I had cable and internet and of course was overpaying. Discovered that if you add a landline, they will reduce the total cost, give you faster internet and throw in some premium channels.

I use a landline so that wasn't a problem but for those who don't, buy a phone from Staples just for the installation and then return it afterwards.

Very happy for the young man and hope he can translate it to the regular season when there will be some semblance of defense played..  Kind of reminds me of recruiting battles-we do very well in February but not so well from September thru November.
