Hilarious!  Especially the FACT at the end.

12/03/2018 - 6:14pm I agree that the playoff…

I agree that the playoff should have 8 teams.  That would presumably have put Michigan in this year, so it would more interesting for us (as opposed to playing low ranked Florida).  Also, Ohio State and Oklahoma both deserve bids, as does Washington.  UCF would also gets its chance, along with Georgia so we could see how good the SEC really is.

Alabama v UCF

Clemson v Michigan

ND v Ohio State

Oklahoma v Georgia

Seems much more interesting than what we actually have.

4 coaches?  Harbaugh, Hoke, Rodriguez, Carr.

Were you even alive in the Schembechler era?  He would win the B1G every year, then lose to USC in the Rose Bowl.  This is similar to Harbaugh who beats the teams he should beat, but loses to the really good teams in the big games.  For better or worse, that's how Michigan has been during my lifetime.  1997 was delicious exception.

11/24/2018 - 9:25pm Yeah, I'm not so impressed…

Yeah, I'm not so impressed with Haskins.  He had time and receivers who can run after the catch.  Patterson has the better all around game, but had to scramble a lot.  Our wide receivers were good, but Gentry's several drops hurt.

3 by Poole, check that Livers (was actually Brooks). That hair is playing tricks on the announcers.

Yup.  ESPN3 feature, apparently (hear announcer chit-chat during timeout).

Yeah, that was LOL worthy throughout, but the ending was the cherry on top.

Nice job by both Punt and CounterPunt!

Educational!

11/14/2018 - 11:04pm The beauty of this Michigan…

The beauty of this Michigan team is that its strength is on defense, which doesn't show up in the box score.  Thus, Cassius Winston is all-everything, while Zavier Simpson is nothing, in spite of besting Winston consistently.  

11/14/2018 - 10:59pm It looked to me like Nunez…

It looked to me like Nunez did draw the charge.  Refs saw otherwise and called the foul on him.  M would have won by 50 if not for referees in 2nd half

Brooks gets 6 points on 2 shots, 4 assists, 0 turnovers.  The new MAAR I hope.

10/27/2018 - 1:02pm Well said!

Well said!

10/22/2018 - 1:46pm Right.  Gary is probably…

Right.  Gary is probably weighing a number of factors and alternatives.  For example, he may want to come back, but not if he can't go full strength.  There's also the issue of permanent damage.  So he's got a lot more to consider than we are aware of.

Same for Bosa -- He didn't quit on the team.  Rather, he suffered a season-ending injury for all practical purposes.

10/22/2018 - 1:37pm On the other hand, this has…

On the other hand, this has good publicity for our program.  Your average viewer sees and knows Michigan backed it up.  How many football fans are fastidious about this sort of thing?  It's a spectacle, and the media loves it.  Try to be above it all like Hoke and there is no reward.

10/22/2018 - 1:34pm Yeah, I love Gardner's…

Yeah, I love Gardner's passion, and intelligence.  He writes well.

10/22/2018 - 1:29pm Yeah, I liked that Hoke was…

Yeah, I liked that Hoke was a good person, but he didn't stick up for the team when Spartans were jumping on the pile and pulling on Denard's facemask.

10/22/2018 - 1:27pm LOL!

LOL!

and not show up in regular games.  This points to a lack of depth, perhaps.  They can win, but not consistently.  

10/15/2018 - 11:15am "Michigan MUST NOT commit…

"Michigan MUST NOT commit stupid penalties" [Mr Grainger]

Michigan has committed very few stupid penalties this year.  Most penalties are judgment calls, and we had quite a few go against us (but not many against Wisconsin).  If you are playing hard (you know, blocking or defending Felton Davis), then there will be potential penalty calls.  These will not be stupid penalties but rather the cost of playing on the road.  Have to play through them.

10/14/2018 - 10:24pm Right.  One common opponent …

Right.  One common opponent -- we beat Northwestern on the road, Spartans lost to Northwestern at home.

10/13/2018 - 7:36pm This gives them extra juice…

This gives them extra juice but, more importantly, gives us extra urgency.  They've won a few they shouldn't have won against us over the years, so this ensures we will take them seriously.

10/13/2018 - 7:34pm Dantonio is not a great…

Dantonio is not a great coach.  A great coach needs to show more consistency and gets his team prepared for all the games.  Remember, Harbaugh has a better record since arriving at Michigan.

10/12/2018 - 1:23pm Yup.

He said out loud what…

Yup.

He said out loud what a lot of 5 stars are probably thinking, and it's not necessarily a bad way to think.  Football's a rough game, so there's some logic to getting the career going as quickly as possible.  On the other hand, there's no guarantee that he'll deserve to start as a freshman or play in the NFL after 3 years in college.  Confidence and ambition are good, but so are wisdom and enjoyment of life.

10/11/2018 - 2:47pm LOL

LOL

10/07/2018 - 9:39pm Yeah, those are good!

Yeah, those are good!

10/07/2018 - 3:54pm I disagree. The 2015…

I disagree. The 2015 Michigan State game with the blocked punt unlucky.  But the spot in the 2016 OSU game was the difference between us going to the playoff and not winning the B1G.  That spot was just a 50-50 call, and on replay it looked like the refs got it wrong.  Not that we should have won the game, but there was some bad luck involved in our loss.

10/06/2018 - 10:32pm Should be a good game next…

Should be a good game next week.  Wisconsin is better than any team we've played since Notre Dame.  But they're not as good as Notre Dame, and this game is at Michigan.

Plato, Socrates, Aristotle?  MORONS

Yes, I was laughing out loud all the way through.  The Penn State / Princess Bride spot was my favorite -- also Indiana Jones..

1st & 10 at NW 29: (12:49 - 2nd) Donovan Peoples-Jones run for 25 yds to the Nwest 4 for a 1ST down

The next play was our first TD.

I actually followed and understood this one.  Thanks!

09/22/2018 - 10:35pm Yeah.  The pass interference…

Yeah.  The pass interference calls have been equally absurd.  

09/22/2018 - 10:34pm Yeah, it's hard to believe…

Yeah, it's hard to believe how arbitrary that penalty is.  

09/22/2018 - 10:29pm Disagree.  He tackled the QB…

Disagree.  He tackled the QB in normal fashion.  There was no "launching".

O'Maury Samuels on end around.

Expectations for Martinez a bit too high.  He's a true freshman in first road game, I believe.

M offensive line looks good.  As does defensive line.

Love the advanced moneyball stat and graphic representation!

09/15/2018 - 10:50pm Yes, it's horrible the way…

Yes, it's horrible the way it is.  Totally a judgment call, but huge penalty or nothing.  

TCU QB just threw TD pass to OSU defensive lineman.  I guess I can go to bed now.

Tiny Feather was great at fullback that year.

Coaches need to practice too.  You take what the opposition gives you.

09/11/2018 - 6:05pm I agree, StephenRKass.  In…

I agree, StephenRKass.  In fact, that's been my number one complaint with Harbaugh -- not giving the second string QB enough playing time.  QB injuries happen all the time, and we need to be able to win with when that happens.  Same thing for the OL.  For some reason, we can substitute all the other positions, but for QB and OL it seems that we never take the starters out unless the game is out of reach, and even then sometimes we don't.  Coincidentally, QB and OL have been our weakest positions.  At least McCaffrey was forced to get some playing time against Notre Dame, due to Patterson cramping.
