Be careful what you wish for, guys.

Ok, yes this comment is too soon and in poor taste. But it's also amazing in the larger context in which it was meant. +1

+1 I walked right into that one.

02/11/2019 - 2:00pm Uh, yeah, that's NOT what it…

Uh, yeah, that's NOT what it feels like, at all. It feels gross but not in the way you described. 

02/11/2019 - 1:57pm I guess the Detroit Free…

I guess the Detroit Free Press knows who to call now the next time they decide that torpedoing Michigan Football will help them sell papers and avoid bankruptcy. 

At least we never have to worry about Beilein doing something this stupid like hiring Tom Izzo's kid. Total Hoke move imo. 

02/11/2019 - 1:51pm This is just stupid. Its…

This is just stupid. Its like hiring Vladimir Putin's son to be a US intelligence analyst. Except the loyalties run much deeper (in CFB). What the actual fuck?

Slightly off topic but check out the reaction of the Rutger bench when Zavier sinks his running hook shot:

02/06/2019 - 11:04am Don't wanna jink anything…

My apologies in advance if I jinx Michigan's entire season by writing this...

but Z is 11/12 from the free throw line in his last four games and 19/24 (.792) in his last 12 games, while he was 7/17 (.412) in his first 12 games this season. Has he finally got this figured out?

We get it. You're excited. We're all excited too.

You mean he's alive? Thanks for the info.

For those who found the time to watch this, does Haskins appear to be tipping they play (run or pass) as some have suggested?

Literally every name in the thread title sounds like a character from a Tarrantino film.

11/13/2018 - 3:28pm Good analysis but from my…

Good analysis but from my standpoint as a fan I'm not sure that it matters. Michigan is going to have its hands full with Clemson or Bama. I'm not sure I'd rather play one or the other in the first round. 

11/13/2018 - 2:58pm Harbaugh had a hand in 4 of…

Harbaugh had a hand in 4 of the top 7 on that list. Nice!

11/13/2018 - 2:56pm Remember how excited MSU…

Remember how excited MSU fans were when the program *finally* hired a recruiting coordinator? 

11/05/2018 - 5:31pm I don't know but Michigan…

I don't know but Michigan led 14-0 last year with a 3rd strong QB and Michigan is much better this year. I think this is Michigan's best chance to win The Game in a very long time and I expect that we'll do just that. 

11/04/2018 - 2:38pm Calling it now: Notre Dame…

Calling it now: Notre Dame is going to lose to Syracuse, Michigan wins out and ends up playing Clemson (yikes) in the first round. 

11/04/2018 - 1:30pm How do you pronounce that?…

How do you pronounce his name? Can someone type it out phonetically? 

11/04/2018 - 1:30pm Did DPJ even go through…

Did DPJ even go through concussion protocol? I know he made a first down catch on the very next play, but it also took them a while to review the prior play, so maybe he did. 

11/04/2018 - 1:26pm This isn't separate thread…

This isn't separate thread-worthy so Im just going to post it here but an odd bit of under-discussed trivia is that Shea originally committed to play for Rich Rod at Arizona:

TUCSON — Rich Rodriguez got some expected — but disappointing — news Monday.

Shea Patterson, a five-star quarterback in the 2016 class, called Rodriguez to tell him he was decommiting from Arizona.

I think that's exactly the type of thing they're trying to get these players to do. It might have technically been targeting by the letter of the law but it shouldn't be and I have no problem with it not being called. Further underscoring the point is that DPJ made a catch for a first down on the very next play, so he was fine from it even if it was a hard hit in the moment. That's football.

I have zero fucks to give and would be just find if I never heard Webber's "return" mentioned again. 

10/31/2018 - 11:22am Every one of our position…

Every one of our position groups is solid-to-rock solid with the exceptions of kicker and QB/passing game. kicker I definitely did not anticipate becoming an area of concern, so that stands out to me. Regarding QB/kicker, this has more to do with the fact that every other aspect of the team is pretty solid and Shea is still new to this system and these receivers, and none of the receivers really came in as battled-tested veterans aside from Perry. As expected, the passing game has improved over the course of the season but I think it will take a few more games and possibly even until next season for it to really start clicking the way it was in 2016. 

Overall, my expectations for the season were about a 7 or 8, but the team as so far delivered a pretty convincing 9. Great job.

While we're on the topic of Harbaugh quirks does anyone know why he prefers using a cabled headset rather than a wireless one?

Please defend Ohio State being #8 or even in the top ten for that matter.

So this is what amateur athletics look like in 2019, eh?

He's been overly critical of Michigan lately but he's also one of the more knowledgeable media analysis when it comes to evaluating who is good, who is a pretender, whose gonna beat who, etc. He's one of the few guys whose predictions are worth more than a coin toss. I wish he'd stop being such a prick because I really do appreciate and enjoy his insights.

I agree that their loss at the Big House next year will sting far worse than this one

Breaking: MSU's pride and false sense of superiority also done for the year.

He's going to be Michigan highest RB draft pick in a looong time.

Does anyone know if Nordin's missed FG against MSU was blocked? It sort of looked like it might have been based on both the trajectory and an MSU player having his hand near the ball's path, but I don't know whether this was ever confirmed or not.

Basically the Big Ten issued a formal statement that says Harbaugh and Bush did something wrong. Not fine-worthy wrong like Mork, but wrong nonetheless.

Sorry to change the subject but I don't think this question is new-thread worthy and I imagine its been covered...

It amazes me how seriously people regard fake internet points that aren't redeemable for anything.

While its not apparent from the time stamp, following the MSU game Shea retweeted this tweet that Chris Frey posted right after the Notre Dame game:

Because the editors at M Live and the Detroit Free Press are MSU grads. 

10/24/2018 - 10:16am You're correct that that is…

You're correct that that is their job. But what he did re: Hoke-Gibbons was over the top. The incident occurred, no charges were filed, and Gibbons was expelled. Hoke was prohibited by university policy from talking about it to the press. But Baumgardner wrote numerous articles criticizing Hoke for not discussing it with reporters knowing full well Hoke could not. It was a total hitjob and completely unfair. But hey, it got him his dream job at the Free Press, right? At some point he will attempt to pull that crap with Jim as soon as there's an angle and none of you will be defending him then. 

10/24/2018 - 9:37am You should never trust…

You should never trust Baumgardner. He was sitting in the MSU student's section rooting against Michigan not that long ago. He's a snake and will go full Michael Rosenberg at his first opportunity. He tried to do that with Hoke and the Brendan Gibbon situation, which Hoke was prohibited from addressing to the media, but Baumgardner nonetheless continued to pester him with questions about it and write stories calling Hoke out for not talking about it even though he couldn't. I will say this much: Jim and his staff have much greater awareness than past staffs of which reporters and beat writers are pulling for the other team. I think most of the fans do too, but not all of them do, and this thread is evidence of that.

Would love for Higdon to finish his senior year with a win over Mike Weber and the Buckeyes. 

10/23/2018 - 3:50pm I didn't graduate from Ross…

While I didn't graduate from Ross or anything, that looks like 38-4 to me, not 41-4 (it appears the 3-0 football/basketball record may have been counted twice). Just wanted to point that out to make sure anyone who wants to (rightfully) taunt sparty with this stat does so using the correct numbers.

Jesus. I thought this was going to be a video of him chasing down LJ Scott and preventing a TD. That backflip is impressive. Whichever NFL squad is lucky enough to land him will be getting a probowler with a 10+ year career. 

10/23/2018 - 10:41am His statement on this matter…

His statement on this matter should have simply read: "21-7. Fuck Sparty."

10/22/2018 - 5:34pm If someone wants to gif it…

If someone wants to gif it there's a hilarious clip of Gentry manhandling Tre Person for like 25 yards on Higdon's long run with about 4 minutes remaining in the 2nd quarter.

Stop with this. His team almost scored a point in a playoff game once. He's going to go down in MSU lore for that achievement.
