To be a rivalry they’d have to play each other more than once every five years. Now, they may just meet in the SEC championship every year, in which case, you are correct.

Whenever I ask the doctors I know about something like this, they always respond that they’d have to see the person to be able to make any form of educated guess. Even when they speculate, they give loads of qualifying language and possible alternatives. Don’t know whether they’re just more cautious than you or perhaps the anonymity of the Internet enables you to feel free to make such proclamations without any firsthand knowledge, but the difference is interesting to me.

No, the students are paying tuition to go there, so should get absolute priority in all things related to sports tickets. As a freshman, I had to sit outside the student section because there was too much demand for student tickets (2007). That sucked because everyone in the section was old and barely cheered. Your annoyance at seeing a less than full stadium is worth a lot less than ensuring that every student is in the student section.

How is this a result of his blowup in Columbus, when his blowup in Columbus was a result of the worst officiating...ever? Plus, there have been issues between Michigan and Delaney since 1989, so don’t think it’s on Harbaugh.

I am bad at this

Not as bad as Northwestern

Is at football though

I was at that Iron Bowl, and yelling fuck Auburn in the middle of Dixieland Delight was quite fun

Have to get used to it though. Do you honestly believe those will get called in EL or Columbus?

09/20/2018 - 11:53am I know he has good…

I know he has good experience, but let’s not forget that Harbaugh’s offense at Stanford was awesome too. Here? It’s been fairly disappointing, likely in part because Big Ten defenses are better than PAC 12 defenses and also due to personnel. I’m just a bit more cautious in making such broad statements, I guess. He is certainly a great offensive mind, my issue is with definitively calling him the best. Also, does no one else see a flaw in running your only scholarship QB as much as he did against Colorado? I get that that’s his scheme and he’s trying to win, but would also seem reasonable to adjust the scheme, given the circumstances.

09/20/2018 - 11:00am This game seems like it will…

This game seems like it will be great for getting film of the occasional bust by the defense to work on for OSU. Also, let’s not get ahead of ourselves calling Frost the best offensive mind in the game. I think part of that is his being shiny and new, and the other part is Seth’s love of all things spread. Sure, they were able to put up a bunch of yards on Colorado, but many teams will. Let’s wait a couple of years to see how he does against good defenses before making such sweeping declarations.

09/18/2018 - 9:44pm Fuck boring safeties!

Fuck boring safeties!

The defense played like shit, no question. But, whatever happened to PI being waived off due to the ball being uncatchable?

09/14/2018 - 11:53am How would this result in a…

How would this result in a chip? He’s saying that he hates MSU more than OSU. Isn’t that what they’ve been asking for all along?

09/13/2018 - 12:56pm Ok, can we just please…

Ok, can we just please clarify that we’re only talking about online trolls and not people who have been said to resemble trolls?

Why are you the way you are?

09/11/2018 - 10:30am May be a bit of hyperbole…

May be a bit of hyperbole. Internment camps in WW2 and the outright suspension of habeas corpus in the Civil War were, at a minimum, more direct affronts to due process and civil liberties. While you may be correct, I think it is unwise to underestimate the strength of our constitution and our system of check and balances. As proof, the abuses that have become known have been deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. 

Sorry is overly political, just think that doomsayers are often misguided and overly negative (just as are people who think we’re headed to some sort of utopia, just in the other direction).

09/11/2018 - 10:17am Interesting, thanks for the…

Interesting, thanks for the correction!

If he wants to fly jets though, wouldn’t Navy be better? 

09/01/2018 - 1:39pm But doesn’t the decrease in…

But doesn’t the decrease in speed from the bounce(s) make up for the lack of hang time at all?

09/01/2018 - 12:35pm Hail yeah!

Hail yeah!

I know it's just WKU, but Hornibrook is throwing darts. He looks damn good.

08/31/2018 - 7:43pm Ok, so DPJ needs to chirp…

Ok, so DPJ needs to chirp Layne after every catch and get him to do something stupid. That is the only concrete thing I've taken from this game so far

08/31/2018 - 7:34pm That kick gets blocked…

That kick gets blocked against a decent team. That thing was so damn low

08/31/2018 - 12:24pm I don’t know, I’m personally…

I don’t know, I’m personally very worried about the interior of the defense. The DTs only got a 4, and the ILBs got a 4.5. Not sure you can be elite with those kind of weak spots. And, who knows about the safeties?? Very concerning

/s (if not clear)

We’re Michigan fans; we aren’t happy until we have something to gripe about.

Could be a safety thing. Have to think his helmet will fit better

Short pass to Evans

I still consider 2/7ths of the Big Ten East to be OOC games

08/29/2018 - 8:45pm If you’re going to…

If you’re going to arbitrarily pick dates, then I will too. From 1996-2007 (the 12 years before the dark times), Michigan went 10-2. If you prefer to keep in to Ten year spans, in Carr’s last 10 years, Michigan went 8-2. Including the Rich Rod years in a post claiming objectivity as being part of the years Michigan was good is disingenuous at best. Also, the 90s Michigan teams weren’t exactly world beaters, except against John Cooper

08/29/2018 - 8:36pm Do you prescribe what you’re…

Do you prescribe what you’re having? Because I’m buying it and want some more!

08/29/2018 - 8:35pm I may have missed that line,…

I may have missed that line, but based on the what I remember from the Jansen podcasts, I have a hard time seeing him saying anything like that, especially given how much he focuses on the importance of a dominant O-line. That sounds more like a mgoblog WTKA roundtable comment to me

08/29/2018 - 8:25pm This was fun. What are the…

This was fun. What are the predictions on the DE grade? Can the score go to 6? 

08/29/2018 - 3:38pm He didn’t. He played without…

He didn’t. He played without glasses or contacts, which seems even more difficult

08/29/2018 - 2:24pm Wait, what did Forde’s tweet…

Wait, what did Forde’s tweet have to do with MSU? I’m so confused by that reaponse. Have the OSU and MSU fanbases joined together in a partnership of awfulness?

08/29/2018 - 1:41pm A bratwurst?

A bratwurst?

08/29/2018 - 12:29pm If that had been the case,…

If that had been the case, then that would have been RR’s best team, given the deterioration of defensive play over his three years. So we likely would have just gotten one more year of explosive offense against bad teams and no defense against anyone.

08/28/2018 - 9:23pm Tru seems like the running…

Tru seems like the running back who puts up huge numbers at Navy or Air Force, causing everyone to wonder why that guy is at a service academy. I’ll take that

I believe you meant to say “Mork my words”

08/28/2018 - 3:19pm Well, when he has 30 rushing…

Well, when he has 30 rushing touchdowns, it’s going to be tough to argue against it, regardless of the fact that he also only will have had 30 yards rushing.

08/28/2018 - 11:57am DPJ shouldn’t be returning…

DPJ shouldn’t be returning punts because our WR group is so thin, especially now that Black is hurt. Losing DPJ would be borderline catastrophic

08/28/2018 - 11:38am At first I was going to…

At first I was going to complain about this being posted instead of the Michigan position previews, then I remembered that OL is coming up, so...keep the Draftageddon coming!

Making our depth concerns at WR look like riches

It’s also a slap in the face to those of us currently paying off a mortgage in the form of student loan payments. People only look at the 45-50K per year tuition costs. But, it is also 15-20K per year in living expenses, and then doubled or more due to the interest on the loans.

08/27/2018 - 1:34pm I guess I am confused about…

I guess I am confused about what people want Harbaugh to say about Durkin. If he says he didn’t see anything wrong while Durkin was here, then people will latch onto the Peppers comment and say Harbaugh condones the type of behavior that led to McNair’s death. Or, they’ll say Harbaugh doesn’t know what is going on on his team/staff. If he says he went over the line here, then people will ask why he hired him after the Stanford stint and why he didn’t do anything about it. It is the definition of a lose-lose situation for Harbaugh. He gains nothing by answering, as any answer will be viewed as an indictment on him. In that situation, rather just let people read into his silence than giving them a sound bite to repeat for the next week.

Grant as the 3rd captain, with Karan and Chase (also think Kinnel is a sleeper for it)

Or Urban as the guy from Memento

08/24/2018 - 9:09pm Given that he just described…

Given that he just described the OSU situation, and prefaced it by calling it an absurd, made-up scenario, I believe Seth was engaging in a joke about how disgusting it is that Meyer is still employed.

Wards Manuel’s email is on the University website: [email protected] I sent an email. Though I doubt it will do anything or ever be read, worth a shot.

08/24/2018 - 4:29pm I don’t think anyone other…

I don’t think anyone other than he knows for sure. But, his first conference commissioner position was as AD of the Ohio Valley Conference, so that time may have played a role. Here’s a good article on the beginning of the Michigan-Delaney distrust: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1990-08-16/sports/9003080807_1_wayne-duke-supervisor-of-football-officials-commissioner-jim-delany

08/24/2018 - 2:37pm Seriously would love it if…

Seriously would love it if Manuel came out and made a contrary statement. 

Edit: I say this knowing full well it would result in more phone calls between Delany and the refs before each of our games
