01/22/2018 - 9:19pm Warriner stays

Warriner is Gladiator and Urban is Commodus.

This is personal. It is not about money.

Warriner wants to watch Urban go down to a mauling running game behind his offensive line. In the Coliseum in Columbus. Like they did when they took down Bama. They physically whipped Bama.

Warriner wants to Whip Urban.

This isn’t business. This is strictly personal.

Is it worse than losing to them for 17 years?

God - It has been almost 20 years. Holy Christ.

This song is 1,00,000,000 times worse than that Friday song and is 1,000,000,001 worse than losing to them.

01/01/2018 - 4:15pm Something is wrong

This isn’t the Stanford model. It’s not even the Wisconsin model. This is becoming the Iowa model. A few close loses. A big win seems like it’s in sight against OSU. But it’s not, really.
The defense is a function now of a failed offensive philosophy and can’t carry the team.
The offensive coordinator and philosophy will have to radically change. The players are losing a belief in the system and the coaching.
The recruits are going to not commit.
This is a problem.
Harbaugh is a great person and man of character. The offense needs a new strategy and direction.

I can recruit some dedicated users to join if you need more players. Would be grateful for an invite if you’ve got slots still.

I would be happy to play as Army or any of the Service Academy teams.

07/06/2017 - 4:34am Yeah. Like WTF is this story supposed to mean?

I don't get it. You are HTD - Hail to The Dumbass.

Apologize here and return your 38-year-old earnings to a random (hottie) student at The Game this year. 

Blueblood2991 is spot on target.

This is pretty cool - Jourdan is the best Man Cover CB in CFB.

09/21/2016 - 3:56am It's fun to revisit comments

So... How does Ohio have an inferiority complex?

01/03/2015 - 6:39pm Could spend an entire day at

Could spend an entire day at a clinic coaching this one single formation, blocking, assignments and line calls, and how to walk it, rep it, and run it.

12/29/2014 - 9:27pm This is greatness...

Pure greatness...

12/14/2014 - 7:34pm They will beat Bama

Ohio will win that game.

12/14/2014 - 2:42am Not so fast, my friend...

Bama is a bit overrated. Defense struggles with spread. And can be pushed - Arkansas was within a missed extra point of OT. Ole Miss handled Bama and they are

12/07/2014 - 11:25pm OSU Not Losing to Bama and not by four TDs

OSU was on fire last night. Bo would have been proud. They have a shot at Bama.

09/21/2014 - 1:53am ESPN is annoying - even on a calm, sunny, warm Mackinac Bay day

Who will be the new Coach in 2015?

09/21/2014 - 1:50am Missed INT Call

Should be WAZZU 1st & 10... Missed call...

12/29/2013 - 11:11am Why does Coach Hoke not wear a head set during games??

Seriously - Why does he not communicate with the booth, why does he seem to be observing - he puts the game in his staff's hands and then is out of touch during the game at critical times.  I don't get his style - He is not effective.  He does not see the gap adjustments from the sideline on either side of the ball.  He just says things like "we need to do a better job ..."

Bill Snyder gets the most out of his team with less and he is engaged in the game and in game adjustments and ongoing planning. 

Hoke doesn't make any sense.  His approach has been ineffective.

Look at Ohio State.  They lose one game in 24 and there is a meltdown.  They ran off one coach, demoted a long time assistant, and are hiring a new DC.  They manage every single play, and they were communicating and recognized the 2 pt. play at the end of The Game and communicated it.

Michigan has players.  The interior lines of communication and coordination are not there.

I am not here to bitch.  I am asking a serious question.  Does anyone know why Coach Hoke does not wear a headset and why does he manage games as ineffectively as he has?  Other coaches do not behave this way.  Successful ones who keep their jobs and have solid staffs don't anyway.

12/29/2013 - 6:01am Hire Bill O'OBrien

Before the Texans do...

12/29/2013 - 5:52am Green was not the top RB in last years class

Not even close...

11/10/2013 - 7:46am Are you on the pipe?

Are you high?

11/10/2013 - 7:44am It was an outstanding

Post, sir!

11/10/2013 - 7:42am Texas A&M ... you're kidding, right?

Michigan would lose by 5 TDs

11/03/2013 - 10:15am "Please read 'The Fable of Bees' before you...?????? WTF

What kind of douche-baggery is that??? It's vagina-monologue-ness bullshit like that that allows a team to accept rushing for -48 yards. Why don't you STFU you little sandusky wannabe...

11/03/2013 - 6:06am Lewan draft status

Who cares - He has not provided leadership when it counted. He plays with no mean streak. No rhythm. He and Kalis are flat footed and can't slide or move and can't drive anyone forward. He played this way last year if you watch old video... Stands up. No leverage. No leadership during times of adversity. Just a lot of talk during camp and no communication on the field during games. Not a top 15. 2nd or 3rd round. If lucky. Best.

11/02/2013 - 9:35pm Please...

U of M is just weak. Don't attribute today's game to the best college defense you've ever seen. Bama of recent years, old Miami, LSU, ... Way better... U of M is just not very good...

11/02/2013 - 8:57pm D'Antonio was the DC at OSU in 2003

... When OSU beat "unbeatable" Miami... D'Antonio knows Defense and is a Tressel disciple... And look what U of M did with him for 10 years...

Get Harbaugh....

11/02/2013 - 8:46pm Dude....

You are on the pipe.... Not beating Ohio....

05/18/2013 - 4:26pm Hoke! from an OSU fan

Love Brady calling notre lame 'Chicken!'

02/06/2013 - 3:00pm TAMU does not cheat

You are making yourself look uninformed, dude... TAMU is legit, and players - esp. in Houston and all the Spread Teams in TX ... like 70% of them ... love that Sumlin and Kingsbury (before he left) have Texas wired and they are in the SEC... Beat Bama - the school is hot right now and that's why kids are playing there.  It's not because of someone cheating... Stop with the lame analysis...

02/06/2013 - 2:57pm C'mon man...

Nkemdiche's older brother goes to Ole Miss.  It's not a bad school and has a lot to offer.  Freeze is good with these kids and their families, and Ole Miss sells family... Give 'em their props...

11/24/2012 - 8:36pm UM Offensive Strategy - OSU fan perspective

You are describing Tressel-ball.  Disclosure - I am an Ohio State fan.

It can work - your first line is the right question.  What is the strategy?  If you are going to go somewhere between Tressel and Wisconsin - 21 personnel, TE/FB Pro-style, West Coast, then keep doing what you are doing.

It truly hurt and was terrible, just horrible what happened to your RB Fitz Touissant.  Tactically - yeah - lining up and pounding out of the I is my favorite play; however, you didn't have the backs to run that on that D.  PA and a pass would have made sense.  I was pretty surprised that UM tried that several times.

To the bigger question - you need to decide if you are going to play like USC, Stanford, Wisconsin, Alabama - Michigan of the 90's - or if you stop right now and play like A&M, Oklahoma State, OU, Oregon, OSU, Clemson, or even WVU.

I personally love the I based TE/FB run game and even though Ohio state is winning and scoring, I still don't like this Urban Meyer spread offense as much as I liked Tressel-ball.  Maybe it's because I'm old-school or just old.

That said, it does feel like Michigan is still in transition - Dick Rod had some offensive athletes, and staying with some sort of spread/ power run based offense would not be that much of a course correction for UM.

You have a good class and that QB Shane Morris is excellent and can do a lot of things.

Ohio State seemed lost at times offensively - or more accurately - Braxton Miller was still relying on his skills mostly vs. his progressions.  Game really could have gone either way.  OSU choked after a couple of gift turn overs.

I spent a lot of time thinking of how Denard was going to smoke OSU on jailbreak screens, quick trips/ quads screens, then Roundtree on the backside.  Didn't really see any of that and Ohio State was getting smoked by UCF, Purdue, and Cal and those teams are not in the same league as UM.

I do think UM has to seriously consider their offensive strategy going forward.  You are a national program and will recruit nationally.  Coach Hoke has done a good job in Ohio, and Meyer is ticking off a base of Ohio HS coaches by passing on some good Ohio talent.

That said, Michigan has historically done well in TX and there are tons of QB's, RB's receivers, OL types out here.  There are QBs from California out there, as are some great RB's.  Take a national view and - as much as I hate the spread and love the Power Run game, UM probably needs to go that way because this spread game is here to stay.  Either compete and go Big and Play an Alabama/ Stanford style game which UM did in the 90's or go spread and get an OC like Kliff Kingsbury or other proven innovators because Michigan still has a buzz and this was going to be a transition year and you have a good class coming in and Hoke recruits his ass off.

I wish OSU and UM both ran Power I but that is not going to happen until the game cycles back in a decade or more.  Other than Nebraska, OSU and UM are going to lead this conference for quite a while. O'Brien can coach at PSU - look at what they did without 10+ players.  They will be not half bad despite the scholarship reductions.  If UM had a Bill O'Brien type, that would work, too.  Just seems like UM is not yet set on who they want to be offensively.

Hoke can recruit.  He is loyal - I actually like that - got a kick out of him in his short sleeves today.  He's got stones and I called him names last year and I actually like him.  He seems like a great guy and the real deal - BBQ's for the recruits, loves the Michigan tradition and won't ever let the program or the players or his staff down.

There have been two tight games two years in a row.  These two teams will settle in to who they are going to be next year and they will be playing in Indianaoplis both next year.  I just hope they don't ever move The Game from the end of November to October or something idiotic like that just for this stupid conference game which will be boring no matter what is at stake.

This Rutgers, Maryland B1G 14 to 16 bothers me.  I liked the old days, or at least adding Nebraska and PSU whcih are good fits.  Otherwise, I like it that UM and OSU tee it up the last game of the year.  Every year.

Go Blue! Go Bucks!

09/25/2012 - 2:28am UM and OSU and the B1G are just not good

 

 am an OSU fan from TX, and enjoyed talking football with a lot of great UM fans a few weeks ago for the Labor Day kick off game.

I am really stunned at how weak OSU's defense has become - and am equally stunned at the production decline from UM.

Look, no one is going to beat Alabama; however, the performance of our two teams and the B1G overall is really hard to analyze.  OSU is struggling with weak teams and cannot stop anyone.  Their D was solid for a decade and I don't get Fickell and Vrabell and their scheme.

UM is in transition to the style of offense I think OSU should stick with (Bo: FB, TE in a 3-pt stance ...) and I get that; however, Denard is Denard, and he is not being put in positions to make him as multi-dimensional as he should be.

Both OSU and UM have good recruiting classes and the future should - should - be bright.  But right now, Hoke and Meyer as solid as they are, I don't see the B1G competing with the SEC.  Shane Morris is going to be solid, and UM is going to be good.  OSU will be good.  I just don't see the two schools or the B1G winning the NC until Saban retires.

I think UM and OSU will be competitive for the next decade in the B1G.  Don't see a NC unless something drastic happens like changes to oversigning.  The economy is not coming back in a big way ever again to the MidWest, and the recruiting bases will have to compete in the South and the West and those 5* players will stay home and we can plan on developing 4* talent and playing our asses off.  It is a different decade ...

Which brings me back to my opening line - having grown up in the NE/ MW/ B1G country and having lived in TX since the 90's, there is a solid population shift, and the base for our two schools is shifting and that will make it tough to win the NC.  Being competitive is one thing - playing for a legitimate NC title is something else...

Eager to hear from UM fans...

Go Army - Beat Navy!
