|09/01/2018 - 11:23pm||I said it in the game thread…||
I said it in the game thread - for me this was the game when the honeymoon ended for Harbaugh. I am done with the trips to Rome, the “enthusiasm unkown to mankind” and the marketing hype that is Jim Harbaugh. His team was unprepared, looked confused and - this is the worst part - seemed to lack the mental toughness to respond when punched in the mouth.
The examples of what I’m on about are penltiful - a stupid targeting penalty by a starter at a position of need, an OL that hasn’t improved from “the worst unit in living memory” level of last year, a holder who takes his eyes of the ball, a QB sliding short of the sticks, a punt returner catching the ball on the five and then compounding his mistake by trying to juke two guys, and wasting time with that clapping thing on the second to last drive.
BTW - Everyone in the world knows when the ball is gonna be snapped. First the clapping, then the QB sticks his hand down, then one-Mississippi, two -Mississippi and then go! If my dumb-ass can figure it out, you bet ND had it down. So will everyone else. You’re making it harder on your worst unit.
Finally, I am putting none of this on the players. This isn’t one mistake, or one poor performance. Systemic failures like this are the fault of the coaching staff.
Honeymoon’s over guys. You need to deliver or pack.
|09/01/2018 - 11:05pm||That is a just result. We…||
That is a just result. We were out-prepared, out-played and out-couched all night. Out D played better and ND frankly lost interest. It was a miracle that we had a chance.
Our OL and coaching staff have many questions to answer.
|09/01/2018 - 10:53pm||Ummm - come on D!!! One…||
Ummm - come on D!!! One stop and give Shea some time.
Remember - we need to beat the refs too.
|09/01/2018 - 10:43pm||So, what was most…||
So, what was most disappointing from tonight
1) Lack of any offensive game plan, or
2) The D being several steps worse than last year, or
3) the OL made no progress despite Ruiz at C and the simpler plan, or
4) the realization that Harbaugh is not bringing the same passion he had at Stanford and San Fran?
|09/01/2018 - 10:40pm||I expect dormer homerism…||
I expect dormer homerism from the rest of the NBC crew. Hearing it from Terico is really disappointing. Guess he needs money too.
|09/01/2018 - 10:04pm||This is so familiar. The D…||
This is so familiar. The D gives thee O a couple of changes which are completed squandered. Then, he D finally just gives up. This is basically the bowl game, except we looked decent in the first 15 minutes of the bowl.
Wait - they called a TD back for ND. Wow, I’ve now seen everything.
|09/01/2018 - 10:00pm||He can claim he was mislea…||
He can claim he was mislea again - into believing that Michigan has a functioning coaching staff.
|09/01/2018 - 9:59pm||Yes||
|09/01/2018 - 9:57pm||The staff still has no plan…||
The staff still has no plan. There is no identity - no “this is what we do well.” The OL doesn’t help, but thee play calling seems totally confused.
|09/01/2018 - 9:53pm||So, we are an option team,…||
So, we are an option team, huh?
|09/01/2018 - 9:50pm||I wish I had been on a…||
I wish I had been on a planed and missed the last five years of Michigan Football.
But, I’d still be mad about this pile of dog crap.
|09/01/2018 - 9:47pm||WTF - That reeked of…||
WTF - That reeked of disparation from a staff that has no ideas and knows it has been out worked by the opposition.
|09/01/2018 - 9:42pm||LOL - No scramble drill. No…||
LOL - No scramble drill. No one had a clue. Unprepared and mentally soft.
|09/01/2018 - 9:35pm||Jim - I think you’ve checked…||
Jim - I think you’ve checked out and lost your edge. Prove me wrong.
|09/01/2018 - 9:27pm||I love the ND people talking…||
I love the ND people talking about the rivilary being back.
YOU CHICKENS ARE THE ONES WHO CANCELLED IT!
|09/01/2018 - 9:15pm||So many mental errors. We…||
So many mental errors. We are choking. Mentally unprepared, physically out matched and totally out coached.
Seriously, what the fuck did Jim do all off-season? Has he just checked out completely?
|09/01/2018 - 9:08pm||LOL. Never mini drama. We’re…||
LOL. Never mini drama. We’re gonna let them score.
|09/01/2018 - 9:04pm||Here it is. Need a stop here||
Here it is. Need a stop here
|09/01/2018 - 9:02pm||Gotta stop them or we waste…||
Gotta stop them or we waste the return.
|09/01/2018 - 8:54pm||REFS - they don’t need your…||
REFS - they don’t need your help
|09/01/2018 - 8:52pm||Hate to say it. A TD here is…||
Hate to say it. A TD here is a death blow.
|09/01/2018 - 8:51pm||Kelly going for it has Jim…||
Kelly going for it has Jim confused. This is so embarassing. Shit man, even Rich Rod beat ND.
|09/01/2018 - 8:45pm||This is the game were…||
This is the game were Harbaugh’s honeymoon ended.
|09/01/2018 - 8:43pm||Our kids are soooo…||
Our kids are soooo unprepared. They are just clueless.
|09/01/2018 - 8:41pm||Kelly is waxing Don Brown…||
Kelly is waxing Don Brown. Total ownership.
|09/01/2018 - 8:36pm||Cool. Points. Whooopie!!!||
Cool. Points. Whooopie!!!
|09/01/2018 - 8:33pm||I think Ruiz and the RG went…||
I think Ruiz and the RG went before others. Looked odd, but was legal.
EDIT replied to wrong comment
|09/01/2018 - 8:31pm||Fuck it. Go for it||
Fuck it. Go for it
|09/01/2018 - 8:28pm||Use a TO||
Use a TO
|09/01/2018 - 8:27pm||So, that sucked. Bu Wimbush…||
So, that sucked. Bu Wimbush has to regress. Our OL looks just as shitty as last year. We have to roll Shea out every pass play.
|09/01/2018 - 8:25pm||Cut and paste that comment.||
Cut and paste that comment.
|09/01/2018 - 8:20pm||Well, finally||
|09/01/2018 - 8:18pm||So - We went with “let’s…||
So - We went with “let’s pass”. ND went with “let’s stunt b/c that killed them last year.” And we went “let’s die.”
What exactly has this coaching staff been doing for last nine months?
|09/01/2018 - 8:15pm||And there’s the QB I…||
And there’s the QB I remember too.
|09/01/2018 - 8:14pm||Awww. There’s the OL I…||
Awww. There’s the OL I remember, Good Heavns
|09/01/2018 - 8:12pm||Ok. Unleashed SHEA||
Ok. Unleashed SHEA
|09/01/2018 - 8:05pm||Getting owned. ND making…||
Getting owned. ND making plays. We look unprepared and uninterested.
|09/01/2018 - 8:01pm||bye Josh.||

Throw ALL THE COFFEE MUGS!!!!!!!
This sucks. Poor guy. Hang in there Tarik, we’re all behind you.

Actually, EVERY Michigan fan there should have this sign. Just tons of ‘em.
|06/06/2018 - 9:57pm||Good news.
Ok. I just…
Ok. I just wanted to comment on the new site. Still, its good news.
|06/01/2018 - 5:45pm||So easy if the issue is Assistant Coaches||
Tell JB he gets 1.03 Million for Assistants - if he stays.
|04/04/2018 - 10:47pm||Hug time?||
After reading this, I just want to give Beilein a hug.
|04/03/2018 - 9:13am||Can’t get down||
We were playing with the house’s money for at least two weeks. We lost the last hand (with a big pile of chips on the table ), but we are waaay ahead.
We also lost to flat out the best team in the Tournament.
So, it would’ve been nice to steal a game, but my head is held high.
|04/02/2018 - 10:08pm||Our D is good enough||
To try to win going inside. Nova sucks you into trying to match their 3 point shooting. You can’t. Gotta try to keep contact.
|04/02/2018 - 10:04pm||Difference||
They hit their threes. We miss them.
|03/31/2018 - 8:44pm||At the in-laws||
I’m going to behave. So, do me a favor and have one for me!
|03/31/2018 - 6:56pm||Feel for me||
I am in Canada watching on TSN. Dickie V has the call. I cannot tell you how much he is all over Loyola. Want to barf.
|03/31/2018 - 6:51pm||This||
|03/31/2018 - 6:39pm||Last commercial killed our momentum||
Hopefully this one kills there.
Hitting some shots would help.
