The full measure of justice would be this man living another 175 years.

One of the great things about Michigan is that you can have both. A great football program and Apollo 15.

01/19/2018 - 9:45am This

I don't think this can be said enough.  These rivalry series have and will continue to swing strangely at times.  

01/10/2018 - 10:37am I understand what you mean

I understand what you mean but I think the problem is normal humans, you and I, for example, get wages and raises largely based on past outcomes and to a smaller degree on future production.  For coaches 'future production' plays a much larger role.

I do agree somewhat though.  I would rather see that money go to assistants or *gasp* the players.

01/08/2018 - 12:50pm Yeah.... if you have to

Yeah.... if you have to say:

"I've had a stellar career..."

Then likely you have not.

01/02/2018 - 10:49am I simply feel sorry for you. 

I simply feel sorry for you.  The rest has been handled by the other comments.

01/02/2018 - 10:45am The moment

I feel like this post may be the moment Brian realized Harbaugh wasn't everything he thought Harbaugh would be.  This is driven home by the fact that there really isn't any other option.

01/01/2018 - 7:44pm Glad to see that Ace is no

Glad to see that Ace is no longer drinking the Harbaugh Kool-Aid without pondering the decision is an improvement. This blog was dangerously close to becoming Maize 'n Brew.

I'll go with the consensus of just about everyone.

01/01/2018 - 7:22pm "A reckoning", give me a

"A reckoning", give me a break. There are so many holes in this team that need to be worked out before there can be any kind of #reckoning.  This is a ceiling 9-3 team next year.

01/01/2018 - 7:20pm You are delusional if you

You are delusional if you think a QB changes this team to anything better than 9-3.

12/20/2017 - 11:22am Too Early

It's too early to be disappointed.  I'd wait until national signing day if ratings and rankings are how you judge the recruiting classes.

Personally, I judge them by the number of wins and losses they produce.  That is solely on my belief that Harbaugh and Co. know exactly what they are doing.

11/22/2017 - 9:23pm I'd rather him just graduate

I'd rather him just graduate early and go home.  Couldn't do worse.  Take your Michigan degree and never come back.

"Shades of Desmond Howard!"

My personal favorite radio call.

11/21/2017 - 2:44pm Next Year

The "on track" and "next year" concepts are the most cliche examples of sports writing possible.  It makes me feel like a Cubs fan or a Lions fan. *shudder*

At the end of the year, as stupid as it is, football is about how many games you won and how many you lost.  The context or meaning for some fans, myself included, is who those wins and losses came against.  It may be a different line of thinking but calling it outright incorrect I believe is mistaken.  Fans want wins, quality is preferred, and I think to tell them otherwise is misguided.

I understand the non-linear trajectory that football is when you start digging into the nitty gritty but in my head recruiting and youth is just another way of saying "potential."  Coaching is the key to turning that potential into wins and losses and the bizarreness that is this season has eroded some faith in this coaching staff.

11/20/2017 - 2:34pm Here Here

I'll raise a glass to your misery and ours.

Let the pendulum swing back, please.

Hey look another excuse. We should have a pinned post of excuses for losing.

11/18/2017 - 4:31pm Harbaugh is just Hoke in a

Harbaugh is just Hoke in a different cloak.  Losing record against winning teams, losing record against rivals, and a losing record on the road against ranked teams.  When will the MGoSheeple see this?

Looks like you were more of an idiot than you knew.

11/15/2017 - 1:35pm Yep.

That is was.

10/18/2017 - 1:26pm Last Concert

The Hip's last concert in Kingston was magical. It was on TV no commercials, people were watching at parties, on their porches, everywhere really.

We were walking home from our friend's place when the show was over and there were people on their porches crying. No hyperbole.

It was losing a piece of your identity. 

10/13/2017 - 3:49pm I enjoy that Michigan's

I enjoy that Michigan's response to offenses negating Bush is, "Hi, my name is Bryan Mone."

Dragging ass Friday pos bang.

 

Go Blue!

10/11/2017 - 10:02am The RR years was a breakpoint

The RR years was a breakpoint in my life as well.  Gave me the perspective I needed to stop being so invested.  Now I follow the 24 hour rule same as the team.

10/08/2017 - 11:03pm "This includes Don Brown who

"This includes Don Brown who had his first major fail since he has been here."

This makes the rest of your little diatribe irrelevant.

10/08/2017 - 10:58pm I think this perfectly sums

I think this perfectly sums up what the reaction over last night's game is about.  People on this site need to understand that not everyone reacts to a game like they do and other people acting differently is not wrong.

10/08/2017 - 7:03pm Allowing 14 points when your

Allowing 14 points when your offense turns the ball over 5 times is not a fail.  That is extreme success.  Blow it out your ass.

10/08/2017 - 1:14am This is probably the most

This is probably the most pathetic post I have seen on the board tonight.  Boy is there a lot of competition. 

10/08/2017 - 1:04am I think 'possibilities for

I think 'possibilities for the season haven't been drastically changed' is where you are wrong here.  Being competitive against the top teams in the Big Ten looked easily attainable yesterday.  After tonight I can't see it happening.

10/08/2017 - 1:01am Year 3

Its year 3 and this is College Football. I don't want to hear about the future anymore.  The future is now and Harbaugh has had time to put his mark on the team.  OSU doesn't make excuses.  They just win.

09/26/2017 - 9:27am Eerie paragraph

"After winning out in the non-conference schedule, Michigan opened up Big Ten play with a trip to Indiana to face a program trying to climb out of a deep hole by hiring an offensive whiz with a penchant for trick plays."

Replace ‘Indiana’ with ‘Purdue’ and this might as well have been written about last Saturday.

09/24/2017 - 4:40pm Tradition

This type of loss has become some new traditon.

Sticky this at the top and close the thread.

Well done.

09/16/2017 - 4:28pm What during the first 3 games

What during the first 3 games makes you think that?  If the Purdue game isn't a defensive game I am terrified.

12/31/2016 - 2:19am This.  Man it didn't take

This.  Man it didn't take long for expectations to get out of hand.

12/31/2016 - 2:17am Sigh...

November and December have been tough months the last two years.

There are glaring deficiencies on this team that have created losses.  Lets hope it gets settled.

12/21/2016 - 3:22pm Really?

I mean if this was some topic about the latest cat meme or Harbaugh to coach in the XFL sure maybe its RCMB.  Its not.  Not even close.

Attempt to be a human being for a few minutes and spend the 45 seconds it took you to read the story make you happy/sad about how even children understand risking their lives for something other than themselves.

You can also decide to not click threads clearly "OT" if you want to stick to straight sports 

11/29/2016 - 2:25pm If the Cubs can win the World

If the Cubs can win the World Series AND Donald Trump can be elected President of the United States.

I suppose EMU can go to a bowl game. It fits into whatever theme 2016 has become.

11/28/2016 - 4:55pm Worth it

Hopefully it was delivered with some self reflection.

Who am I kidding?

11/28/2016 - 4:34pm To make you feel better

Carr lost his first 2 games against OSU and then won 5 of 6.

Note: I can't seem to recall how his final 5 games went. /s

11/27/2016 - 3:28pm I get it

But some people (#1 me for example) need a bit more time to process stuff. That game was a straight stomach punch.

Maybe tomorrow or Wednesday we'll feel better and your completely accurate example will come back to our rational educated minds and things will be better.

For now, just a bit longer, we are using this board to feel better.

11/27/2016 - 2:53pm 100% accurate.  24 months ago

100% accurate.  24 months ago this fan base was absolutely staring into the abyss of irrelevance with no forseeable way out.  Jim Harbaugh stepped in and without blinking turned this into a team to be feared.  20-5, just let that sink in.

11/26/2016 - 4:12pm I agree.  This must be what

I agree.  This must be what Sparty feels like.

11/26/2016 - 4:09pm Someone hold me and tell me

Someone hold me and tell me we will win this game someday.

11/25/2016 - 1:19pm I think this is the most coin

I think this is the most 'coin flip' The Game we've seen in while.  No matter what I read I have no idea how to predict an outcome.

11/23/2016 - 12:14pm I love Keith Jackson....

.....I like Frank Beckmann's call of the Woodson return just a touch more.

11/22/2016 - 8:53pm "We will continue to handle

"We will continue to handle this personnel matter internally."

So they will pretend nothing happened.  Right.
