Wow. This makes me sad. I grew up in Ann Arbor and remember going to Moe's when I was about 5 years old with my grandfather who had played football for UM 40 years earlier. Tears.

04/01/2018 - 7:55pm Spartans? Buckeyes?

Dreaded double post.

04/01/2018 - 7:53pm Spartans? Buckeyes?

Who cares? We won the big ten tournament playing 4 days in a row. Neither of those teams did what Michigan did this year. The “draw” argument is weak sauce. Ignore them.

Run McDoom in the wildcat or triple option. The alternative might be < 58 yards passing. 

10/08/2017 - 3:15pm Honest question about formations for Michigan

The article has the following quote (and refer to a 'mirage of creativity'):

> "They ran 40 different formations in the first half." 

> Forty formations. Three points. "

I did not think we had 40 snaps in the first half. Maybe the experts can comment. 

10/08/2017 - 3:01pm Cameras

Might be a good idea to revisit whether it's a good idea to have "Amazon Prime" cameras in the way. I'm not sure having an ' "unscripted" documentary series about Michigan's 2017 football season' is something we need right now. 

10/08/2017 - 10:16am Countdown clocks, respecting rivalries and visualizing wins

I actually liked that Bo (and yes I was living in AA in 1969) had a MF countdown clock on how many days, hours, minutes until the OSU game. I think we need one for OSU and one for MSU. I may be wrong and often am but it seems like we did not have the energy last nigt. think we have now shown that when you treat your rivalry games like regular games you get beat more often than not. It's time to respect the rivalries.

10/08/2017 - 2:09am Harbaugh

We are not going to get a better coach than Harbaugh. Who do you want? Meyer, Urban?LOL. Harbaugh leaves and we get Ed Orgeron or the equivalent. It's a game played by 18-22 year old kids. The UofM experience is exceptional. The D is amazing and the O needs tons of work. If you are critical then I suggest you listen to Bo's "the team" speech. It's time to back the team.

Even the most blue fans often forget that these are still 17-22 year old young men who are trying to progress day to day, often make mistakes and get hurt in this tough sport.I don't think Coach Harbaugh ever forgets.  I loved the "binoculars" comment from the coach.

01/10/2017 - 9:25am WAPO: "Nothing Better than Watching Alabama Lose"

One of the priceless quotes:

"Saban, you see, doesn’t smile.

So much so that commenting on it has become an Internet meme. When the Miami Herald’s Greg Cote witnessed the man smile he wrote of the moment, “There was a rusty creaking sound, an emission of hell’s gasses and then the release of screeching bats as Saban’s lips parted.”

Major recruiting opportunities without having a sat camp. Hail Michigan. JH will show 'em how it's done. I wish the boys a fantastic game!

Dred the word natty

11/28/2016 - 3:47pm Moving on now...

I started going to UM games in 1960's (with my dad, and my grandfather who played for UM) and this last OSU game was one of the top five disappointments in that span. Still, we need to move on and celebrate that the future is ours. We will get our revenge. And it's going to be sweet.

If we make the CFP this year I will rejoice but I am not counting on it. Otherwise. I hope we play the SEC runner up. I want to kick the living daylights out of them. Then I am going to get ready for next year. If you want to look at what the OL will do next year and in 2018 read "rags to roses" about Harbaugh's 4 years at Stanford. We are going to run the ball and it is going to be devestating. Hail Michigan!

 

11/26/2016 - 7:25pm So much $ in CFB...

With so much $ in CFB the refs need to be professionals. They are not. Look, the dam game tool 4.5 hours (every 1 minute of play was followed by 4 minutes of commercials). Coaches make 1-9M dollars a year. This is serious. Jeebux, get these jokers full time jobs and hold them, and the booth officials accountable. Stop rotatating the same losers in on us. This is just stupid. If you are going to treat CFB like a professional endeavor, get professional officiating. Lame. 

11/26/2016 - 7:09pm Year two of the Harbaugh reign and we are getting better...

So, moving forward. I am really excited about the future. Steel in the spine. Tomorrow better than today. Moving forward to a dominating bowl win over some SEC team. And then, when Harbaugh gets all his men on the field the difference will be felt. Love Coach Harbaugh, Love Don Brown. Go Michigan. The Future is ours. 

11/26/2016 - 6:59pm Can't deny I'm upset..

... at the refs. But when we leave up to the refs in East Lansing or Columbus or Kinnick we should expect the worst. People don't like us.

Good man. Sorry it did not work out here. He deserves to be happy. 

01/14/2016 - 7:20pm PBell was the Bomb(ed)

As a freshman in 1974 (when the legal drinking age was 18!) The Bell was the place to go. I'm amazed I survived all the pitchers of beer. Tons and tons of UM sports memorabilia on the wall. Sadly, they later had a fire and much of it was destroyed. Very happy to hear it is coming back and I hope they include some of that old, but very neat vibe.

11/30/2015 - 1:31pm Fatigue...

I think we often forget how long and hard the season is for athletes still in their teens and early 20's. We expect them to be machines and on Saturday we might point to the fact that the season started in August with so much energy being expended on the new program. I would expect that under Harbaugh there was more conditioning and work than under Hoke. Finally, we had some tough games away down the stretch that our team fought hard to win. I think rather than criticize talent that our team just ran out of gas. UM has treated every game like a playoff game since MSU and that intensity takes its toll. Neg me all you want, but sometimes the athlete comes up flat, even when they want, with all their heart and soul to play the best game of their lives. It happens.

11/29/2015 - 2:09pm I have not been more upset

I have not been more upset about an OSU game since 1968. The result of that game fueled our performance in 1969. I am confident that Harbaugh will recruit with enthusiasm unknown to mankind and we will get revenge. He will never forget. Love our coach and staff. Love the team and look forward to getting better each and every day. Forever.

11/08/2015 - 3:39pm Really don't care...

I really don't care about what is out of our control. The 4-team playoff is flawed for the obvious reasons. If we win out, we are big-10 champs and win a rose bowl. If we happen to get into the playoffs great, but there will be crying by someone.

It rarely can get better than winning the B1G championship and a Rose Bowl.  This is a Harbaugh team. He will make the best of what we have, which is good and no question is going to get better. I am so happy with Hackett and Harbaugh. We are a force again. Love the effort, the steel spine and the team.

I pity the Gophers in 2 weeks. For those folks upset at our coaches I will have to disagree. This was probably the worst loss in Michigan Stadium history. We are all hurting. I get it but I stand by our coaches. Harbaugh and his staff are the best in the land.

Volume was low, even in sec 23 row 50. Good show though. Temptation and Hawaiian War Chant were played by the band with alumni band after the game. We always stay for the bands after as it beats fighting traffic.

Harbaugh will get us ready for MSU. We will be competitive and I plan on drinking some good single malt scotch to celebrate. No team is unbeatable. Witness Stanford vs USC when Harbaugh was the new coach and USC was favored by 40!

OSU was natz champ in 1968.... then Bo showed up. As a Michigan fan back then this feels similar... I trust Harbaugh to take the fight to these guys big time.

12/10/2014 - 11:01am Risk and Regret

Don't issue an ultimatum until after his last game (12/28) if at all (I wouldn't at all). Pursue plans B and C as risk mitigating steps, but never rule out success for plan A until you're sure plan A is dead. After 12/28 there will still be time to get a good plan B coach. The REGRET of not getting Harbaugh exceeds the risk associated with B and C "at least given the comments we have seen here on MGB".

10/27/2014 - 12:38pm If we beat our rivals

If we beat our rivals 7/10 times we are the "bully". When we get toasted at that rate we are the "bullied". I watch every week to support the kids but can't stand to see our coach not train them to be tough.

Lord please intervene and get us a new AD and a coach who is a competitor and not a "nice man". Please.

Why would any self-respecting (new) coach want to come to UM for this?  Assuming Hoke may not make it to next year we will be hamstrung by observations like this in recuiting a new HC.

Why watch? Because I want the kids to succeed more than I want the coach and AD fired. And that is saying I want them to suceed with all my heart. I want them to know I support them.
