Time to fire up the Michigan money cannon. I’ve seen firsthand the cars Bama’s players drive. Michigan needs to start playing by the same rules. Yes, already likely do some stuff, but nowhere near the same level

Perhaps making a few in live games would calm him down. Ive gotta think he is pressing a bit with all the misses. Feeling pressure and the accompanying increase in heart rate can cause problems that don’t exist in practice. If it’s at least partially mental, then yeah, making a few with everyone watching could have a greater impact than all those practice shots.

12/12/2018 - 2:30pm (1) Are you being sarcastic?…

Deleting my unnecessarily dickish comment after seeing your response. Cheers and happy holidays.

Serious question though: if you were an elite WR recruit, why would you want to come to this offense? I try to be positive, but have to acknowledge that this offense, among the most run and TE heavy in the country, may not be attractive to receivers. How many times all year did our offense attack teams with our supremely talented and athletic receivers? I love Michigan, but if I were advising a good high school receiver, I would tell him to go somewhere that will utilize him better.

In a screenshot put on Twitter by Zach Smith, Tom Herman responded to Zach Smith’s long, cuss-filled texts with a succinct “Ok, cool. Hook ‘em”

I believe the situation being obfuscated is who is Michigan's backup QB

But, Harbaugh said they have great special teams! We need a special teams FFFF because that could be the difference! (between a 40point win and a 60 point win)

But, Brady is the greatest of all time, so in this context, it is neither lazy nor incorrect to use it

11/03/2018 - 10:17am Or, ND loses, and that…

Or, ND loses, and that leaves two spots: one for UM, one for OU. it Isn’t a given that a one loss ND is in. In fact, I’d bet against it.

Four touchdowns and converting a two point conversion on one, of course

Go to Highlands Bar and Grill. It is awesome and even won the James Beard for best restaurant in America.

And for anyone, let alone an alumnus of Michigan, you are very poor at verb tenses.

Our Coach who art in Big House; Hallowed be thy name; Thy Wolverines come; Thy schemes be done; On the field as it is in practice; Give us this game our weekly fix; And forgive us our penalties; As we shall forgive none of our foe; And lead us not into losses; But deliver us victories and cheer; For thine is the kingdom of Bo; And the power and the glory for ever and ever.

His mistake was leaving the players alive to tell the tale

10/26/2018 - 3:52pm Because Saban seemingly…

Because Saban seemingly collects disgraced former Head Coaches? It’s like stamp collecting for him, I think.

10/26/2018 - 3:40pm Yeah, doubt that is the…

Yeah, doubt that is the entire reason he is there. Not like Bama needs any help beating Tennessee

10/25/2018 - 6:40pm I love Michigan, but let’s…

I love Michigan, but let’s not start any “we want Bama” stuff. We don’t want Bama. They’re a damn juggernaut right now. Everyone is paying attention to their offense (deservedly so), but their defense is also really good. Outside of an opponent having some crazy turnover luck, I don’t see how anyone beats them this year.

10/21/2018 - 7:35pm A huge part of being a great…

A huge part of being a great HC is hiring good assistants though. You don’t think Kirby Smart, who has proven to be a great coach, helped Saban build his dynasty? 

10/20/2018 - 6:39pm The reason what they did and…

The reason what they did and what Bush did aren’t in the same league is because theirs was an institutional decision, with backing from the HC. Bush’s actions were those of a single, pissed off guy. Any attempt at making the two equivalent is horseshit.

I can tell you one person who will be very impressed with them: Seth in his FFFF.

I kid, I kid.

10/10/2018 - 12:53pm To be a rivalry they’d have…

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.

10/09/2018 - 4:17pm Whenever I ask the doctors I…

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.

10/04/2018 - 9:57am How is this a result of his…

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

09/23/2018 - 10:12am Have to get used to it…

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!

09/15/2018 - 7:38pm The defense played like shit…

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?

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

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

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
