Is it even possible to get sick of those memories? It's time to Harbaugh some new ones coming up. Let's goooooooooooooo!!!

01/01/2015 - 12:33am Happy Harbaugh! I hope 2015

Happy Harbaugh! I hope 2015 is a much better football year.

WHO'S GOT IT BETTER THAN US???

10/31/2014 - 9:41am Ok I'll show up for the

Ok I'll show up for the posbang. This season has been so bad that posting in a posbang thread has become necessary.

10/12/2014 - 2:34am His dancing is so much better

His dancing is so much better live at the game. They don't show his full range of moves on TV. It's definitely entertaining and it pumps up the crowd.

09/11/2014 - 5:29pm Both UFR's confirmed what I

Both UFR's confirmed what I thought after the game: 31-0 makes no sense to me.  I didn't feel like we played a bad game.  In fact, I thought we played pretty well, mainly in the first half, yet we were still down 21-0.  It made no sense.  Either ND played at another level (which they probably did, the rest of the season will figure that out), or we made too many little mistakes.  But I didn't think it should add up to 31-0.

09/01/2014 - 3:00pm Wait, we don't? Refer to last

Wait, we don't? Refer to last year, the Rich Rod years, and many of the Lloyd years. Or was that sarcastic? I'm confused now. Although I agree App St is not the right reference point.

08/31/2014 - 12:28am Obvious attempt at a reverse

Obvious attempt at a reverse jinx is obvious.

But seriously I don't understand the Herbie hate. He's usually pretty reasonable. Agree that Pollack is intolerable.

Seth I'm so sorry for your loss. Please accept my condolences. I have been taking care of my seriously ill father for the last two years. As hard as life has become, every day with him is a blessing. God bless your father and your family.

03/30/2014 - 8:06pm Thank you. Respect. Go blue.

Thank you. Respect. Go blue. Always and forever.

01/09/2014 - 8:33pm This just proves that the

This just proves that the board, or maybe michigan fans in general, can argue about anything. Why is this so hard? Thank you Al Borges for dedicating yourself to the program. It didn't work out as often as we would have liked, but there were some bright spots. Good luck in the future. Again, why so difficult?

01/08/2014 - 10:45pm Great get by Hoke.  A sorely

Great get by Hoke.  A sorely needed breath of fresh air for the program.

12/04/2013 - 3:29pm This is an insanely hard

This is an insanely hard question for me. Maybe it shouldn't be because you should always take a championship in football or basketball. But football...especially against that team...I'm not so sure. Not clear cut to me.

11/26/2013 - 4:59pm That's correct, I made a

That's correct, I made a mistake in saying the fanbase.  I meant the negativity surrounding the program, of which we as fans have a very small role to play.  In this technology-driven universe, I do think a site such as this can lead to media picking up on the sentiment of the fan base, and searching for negative stories/angles that way.  I'm not saying it is the reason, but it has a small role in that.

As for our staff, for a defensive player, GMAT is as good as it gets aside from Saban, in my humble opinion.  But the instability surrounding the coaching staff (just offensive staff?) and general feel of the prorgram right now is leading to all of this.

11/26/2013 - 4:30pm This is what the madness

This is what the madness surrounding the fanbase results in.  Instability is what causes recruits to rethink everything.  I'm as frustrated as everyone else, but the attacks on Hoke are over the top for me.  This is his third year, and we have had nothing like Rich Rod level cratering.  I want the offensive staff to be shaken up, but beyond that, I still believe in Hoke, which seems to be a minority view on the board of late.

We need to relax and give Hoke a litle more time.  Patience is difficult, I get it, but I think that's what is required right now.  Chill out; it's not like we didn't have seasons like this, record-wise, under LC, or Bo for that matter.  The manner in which it has happened has been ugly, no arguments there.  But we've been here before, and, in my opinion, we are nowhere near as low as we were during Rich Rod's first two years.  Stability is important right now, and patience with Hoke is what is needed at this time.

I need a break from life.  All this sports nonsense just adds to everything else not going well.

This is a harrowing story that I had never heard about. Pretty damn inspirational.

In a weird way, Brian's writing is even more creative and entertaining when Michigan football is struggling.

And if posbangs were still around I'd be here for the gangbang.

I laughed. I clicked on the thread waiting for the OP to get slammed.

11/11/2013 - 9:53pm I'm so happy to hear things

I'm so happy to hear things went smoothly. I went through something similar with my father that did not unfortunately so we are still dealing with the complications. I read the thread earlier today and instantly got goosebumps. That happens any time I hear about brain surgery of any kind. Thank God things went well and I wish your wife and your family all the best. Go blue.

10/24/2013 - 7:35pm The fact that this thread

The fact that this thread exists is a pretty sad commentary of our fan base. Refs are relevant in most games. Lets wait until after the game to judge their performance and the effect it had on the game. It may be an issue but let's not complain about it prematurely.

10/18/2013 - 9:45pm Thoughts and prayers to the

Thoughts and prayers to the family. Terribly sad.

10/18/2013 - 9:46am I don't really think the

I don't really think the offense and defense should be compared because its pretty obvious which side of the ball is hurting the team right now. But if you look at talent alone, does GMAT have anything on defense approaching the talent of Lewan, Gardner, Gallon, Funchess, and Fitz? I think the answer is pretty obviously no. Jake Ryan is our best defensive player and he just came back. Countess can be included as well. But after that. I don't think the talent level compares favorably. Even so, while this is not a great defense by any means, it has been pretty solid.

10/15/2013 - 1:56pm But I wanted the post where

But I wanted the post where pictures are highlighted of almost every single play in the overtimes involving the obscenely simple quick pass to the outside 10 yard cushion. Guaranteed 5-7 yard gain when trying to get into better fg range. All I could think about was that specific post. Disappointing. But not as disappointing as big Al.

10/08/2013 - 10:28pm I'm more surprised that he

I'm more surprised that he hasn't mixed it up more this year and showed different looks. I think he did that more in the last couple seasons, with the okie package and various coverages behind it. Most of what we've seen this year has been the passive secondary alignment and calls. Maybe more varied packages are coming as the season and competition progresses. Regardless, I'm still a member of the In GMAT We Trust group.

10/07/2013 - 10:38am I'm not even sure what to say

I'm not even sure what to say in my reply except I wish nothing but the best for patients and family members going through a loved one having cancer. My family has been coping with my dad's brain cancer and resulting complications for over a year now. It takes its toll in every way imaginable. Sometimes you're just not sure if you have the ability to handle it anymore but you soldier on.

Does anyone else hate the jump because they have a completely obsolete computer and it takes too long to keep jumping to the rest of the post? Oh...it must just be me.

Anyone care to share ND specific hype videos? Haven't seen much yet this week.

CONTENT OVERLOAD! But were Michigan fans after all so...I just don't know man. Hope for the best and GO BLUE!

Hoke is insane. Welcome to Michigan Mr. Harris. Building something special.

I signed on just to say WOW! Hoke is tearing it up on the recruiting trail. Welcome to Michigan Mr. Campbell. Imagine the possibilities a few years from now.

05/20/2013 - 9:30pm Heiko amazing work. You've

Heiko amazing work. You've provided a level of access that is virtually unparalleled. Also thanks to Big Al Borges for agreeing to this type of interview.

I think it's perfectly fair to criticize the game plan that Borges comes up with. Generally, no one argues that he doesn't work hard or prepare proficiently. Criticizing (or praising) specific calls or strategy is fair game for someone that creates the strategy and makes the calls. We as fans obviously don't know as much as the coaches, but we should be allowed to make our opinions known. That is the whole point of this blog after all.

05/12/2013 - 9:18pm I didn't think of his comment

I didn't think of his comment like that at all. But then I laughed. Yes I continue to be 3 years old. I should be ashamed.

04/28/2013 - 4:11am More importantly Magnus:

More importantly Magnus: After perusing your site lately, I've noticed a definite lack of the usual "hot girl" tags. I know NSFW and all, but has there been a change in the direction of your blog? Are there now rules against this? Say it ain't so. It's a great bonus to an informative post.

04/27/2013 - 8:36pm It's great to see Mr. Kovacs

It's great to see Mr. Kovacs get picked up. It's a story of hard work, determination, and intelligence. I was just as guilty as some who always were quick to criticize his speed during the RR era. But he's just a quality football player who I really want to see succeed.

04/15/2013 - 8:25pm Have the parents been living

Have the parents been living under a rock? This is absurd even if he has been coaching the team for awhile.

04/15/2013 - 8:21pm I don't think they can keep

I don't think they can keep Dymonte off the field this fall. I've always thought he is the most talented defensive recruit we got last year. I'm excited to see how GMAT develops him and what type of player he becomes.

And of course, GMAT dominates press conferences.

04/14/2013 - 3:47pm Thanks Trey for the last 2

Thanks Trey for the last 2 years. The run this year was incredible. No more B1G officiating bodes well for his future. Good luck Trey!

This is a huge get at a position of need. Hoke and Co. keep getting the job done.

04/09/2013 - 12:11pm As usual, Brian sums it up so

As usual, Brian sums it up so well.

I was oddly calm before the game and leading up to it because I thought we matched up well with Louisville. I thought our preferred free flowing game would be perfect against them. And then the first half happened, and it was insane. The best I've seen in a long time. Yes, we couldn't quite get the job done the second half, but I'm so proud of them. They left everything on the floor and were right there against the best. I couldn't have asked for more. It was a great 3 weeks. Tough to lose, but the team made me proud.

04/09/2013 - 12:37am So proud of the team. The

So proud of the team. The effort. They were right there against the best. Great season and an awesome journey. Tough result, but nothing but respect.

04/07/2013 - 12:30am I'm just here for the.....no

I'm just here for the.....no wait, whooooooo!!!!!! This is awesome. What a performance. Especially the first half. Wow it's unreal because I was a preteen when this last happened.

I wish you the best Ace.
It's hard to properly explain the impact sports have. The connection to YOUR team. All I know is it makes getting through difficult times just a touch easier.

This was awesome. Damn I'm going to miss dilithium.

04/02/2013 - 1:35pm This is pretty much well

This is pretty much well documented in the scandal involving Tim Donaghy. It's quite the black mark on NBA officiating.
