Command & Conquer was such a fantastic game

Could Drevno be considered a "fire"?

01/03/2019 - 8:41am Yeah, exactly. And…

Yeah, exactly. And conversely, I'd be curious to see how the "terrible" Big 12 defenses would do against non-OSU Big 10 offenses. Would they still be terrible?? 

01/03/2019 - 8:37am I think this is a pretty…

I think this is a pretty good level headed summary of things. Just sit back and let the head coach do his thing, then we can start complaining again come late summer.

Probably not fair to expect him to foresee a 62-39 beatdown and Urban Meyer retirement. You should maybe just stop following/listening to Sam.

I don't disagree. Simply making the point that just because we scored 39 points, doesn't mean the offense was great. Obviously the defense was the main issue.

Honest question here.... what is the motivation for the program to be blowing sunshine on the Dax Hill situation? Placate the fan base? Sway other recruits?

12/17/2018 - 10:40am Sam indicated he had made…

Sam indicated he had made contact with Dax Hill's father I believe. It was after that conversation when Sam made the statements that this wasn't over yet.

Where's this "talk" of him transferring out?

I actually feel the same way, although I haven't watched much of Weber other than the games against us

12/17/2018 - 10:21am Yes.... but a goose egg in…

Yes.... but a goose egg in the critical 3rd quarter. The fourth quarter points mean much less after we were getting blown out.

And Aubrey Solomon, no? Selective memory I guess...

Reports are that he wasn't necessarily a big fan of Urban, but closer to Larry Johnson. So who knows...

This is exactly where I'm at. I love college football because of the week to week intensity, but at this point I'm tired of caring so much and then crashing back to earth year after year.

Basketball is a fun, casual watch all year, and then a blast come tournament time.

I hear you, but not allowing YAC against the OSU athletes and speed is a different level challenge for the D. We'll see!

11/22/2018 - 10:55am Yeah, this didn't make me…

Yeah, this didn't make me feel any better about the game. Hopefully the defensive FFFF will restore some confidence.

Well done, thanks! Like the choice of music.

Thank you for giving me a good laugh. Perfect reply.

Michigan. Except once it turns full cloudy at 3pm, then we're in trouble.

I think this is a definite possibility. Don't like injury speculation, but repeated head "trauma" / injury is not something to mess with.

I live overseas and this is all I use. Some of the streams require a US IP address, but I don't think they all do. If he/she wants to be safe, they can do a 30 day trial with ExpressVPN to get the US IP address covered.

Yeah, but don't you remember what happened last year after JT got hurt?

Only thing that would change this is if there's some accountability for the officials. I don't know what it is....  Maybe make them sit in front of the camera after a game and get grilled by reporters for some of their calls (like the players and coaches have to do). Then fine and suspend them for the really bad repeat offenders.... gotta be someway, or I agree, this current system of fan and coach complaining won't help.

Wow, brave! Hope you make it to the end. Enjoy!

Did that entire thread dedicated to you change your tune? :)

I found the link via Twitter. I do actually follow Nick B on Twitter, as I sometimes enjoy reading his less biased takes on Michigan. I definitely don't go perusing the Freep website for articles!

This was one of my first thoughts after the finishing the article as well.

Other teams (i.e. PSU) improve as well...

Great news. One small part of me was looking forward to seeing a little more of what O’Maury could do. Hope for a blowout so I can still get it.

Is the price different for Ann Arbor Golf and Outing vs. the University course? We paid $50 for WMU game at AAGO. Either way, it's definitely worth it especially with a car load of people.

09/19/2018 - 10:45am Park on the golf course,…

Park on the golf course, bring all the usual tailgate goodies, and have fun. I'm sure there are other tailgating location gems out there, but a golf course tailgate for your first visit is perfect for the full experience. $50 per car however.

This is exactly right and how I feel after reading all this stuff.

VPN to somewhere overseas. My "Wolverines Wire European Experience" doesn't allow any videos, just the text and photos show up. :)

09/14/2018 - 6:11am Thanks for this post as I'm…

Thanks for this post as I'm always looking for new follows. Here are my top ones:

 

@WolverineLounge, @wolverineswire, @Maizenbrew: general news and stories

@grant_newsome and @jakelong77: player's perspective

@sbell021: great at trolling rival fan bases (in particular Sparty)

@ItsAntWright: overall entertaining follow from former UM b-ball player

@SamWebb77: recruiting (although I typically learn more from Mgoblog) 

@AaronBDesigns: I like his graphic design work

 

I'm usually too focused on the TV to follow anyone for real-time updates. But occasionally will look at @Nickbaumgardner posts during and after the game to get some less biased takes.

 

09/03/2018 - 11:00am You're also going back and…

You're also going back and pulling the last 4 games from 2 years ago to make the 9-9 statement. Why not grab a few more games prior to that from 2016 then? 

 

Look, I don't disagree with your opinion that going 4-0 against our toughest opponents is highly unlikely. I just get frustrated when I keep hearing things like we haven't won a road game against a ranked opponent since 2006. Yeah, it sucks big time for us fans, but why is that relevant now in any discussions about this team? (I know you didn't make this statement)

09/03/2018 - 10:40am Yes, exactly. Recruiting…

Yes, exactly. Recruiting misses are valid points, but we should still put together a competent line. What were the star ratings of Wisconsin's current dominant OL?

09/03/2018 - 10:35am What does 9-9 have to do…

What does 9-9 have to do with THIS team? What does Urban Meyer's record have to do with THIS team?

09/01/2018 - 2:25am Seriously....why does it get…

Seriously....why does it get worse as we age?!?! Should have more important things to worry about now! Oh well.

08/31/2018 - 5:25am Here here. This will be my…

Here here. This will be my first season living overseas (France). I too am nervous about ensuring streaming the games is adequate. As you say, technology has improved, so hoping for the best! I did get a trial run in for the bowl game, which was successful. Although in hindsight, maybe that wasn't a good thing.

I'd love to take a nap as well, but I'm afraid I'll be too excited. Sunday will be painful! Hopefully for just lack of sleep reasons, and not the depression of a loss. I'm confident though! 27-7 Michigan win.
