Regardless of what the talking heads say, we're not going to jump Notre Dame unless they lose.

Rivalries happen organically. You can't force them. 

In a few years Ped State might join the hallowed ranks of our archrivals if we play great games against each other for high stakes. 

11/08/2018 - 3:27pm That one's probably my…

That one's probably my favorite of the entire piece.  That startled a very loud burst of laughter out of me at work. Got some side-eyes from the coworkers. 

11/08/2018 - 1:06pm This is always my favorite…

This is always my favorite article on this site. Love it to death. 

Having said that... this one needs a once- over by a copy editor. Lots of typos and errors (how many times did Houston play Houston when they played against SMU?).

Well played, sir.

Complete speculation on my part, but personally I'm hoping that Chris Partridge is paying close attention to how The Don is doing things.

Coach has locked it down in preparation for this game. Has no time for anything but laser focus on beating Ped State.

Giggity.

I wonder if that's just as fraudulent as everything else he sells. 

10/29/2018 - 3:13pm What would you consider…

What would you consider their job is if not to ask questions that we, as fans, want answered?

Thanks for stopping by, Coach Ash.

10/25/2018 - 9:54am This is gloriously awful.

The Black Pit of Negative Expectations.

It's a Brian thing.

Bye, Felicia.

Pretty amazing that most of us will be around to see Michigan's 1000th win in a few years. 

10/14/2018 - 6:08pm Personally, I choose the…

Personally, I choose the 2016 Citrus Bowl against UF as Harbaugh's needy game. 

But the UW game is a close second.

North and South, Higdon!  NORTH AND FUCKING SOUTH!

10/11/2018 - 8:24am So, incredible as it seems,…

So, incredible as it seems, the ref is saying that our DL doesn't get calls because they 1. Are Too Good and 2. Have too much discipline/self-respect to collapse like a soccer player shot by a sniper when they're actually fouled. 

Based on the Holding Graph, that is borne out. 

But let me take the opportunity to say to that:

"What the fucking fuck?"

Drew Sharp.  All day, every day.

I may or may not speak for everyone when I say this...

But shut the fuck up. 

10/04/2018 - 2:26pm To paraphrase James Carville…

To paraphrase James Carville:

"It's the commercials, stupid."

The game is far less fun to watch live,  either on TV or in the stadium, because of the crass commercialism associated with it. 

10/03/2018 - 1:39pm Have you seen the "holding…

Have you seen the "holding discrepancy" graph?

If you have and you've come away thinking anything other than "we're getting systematically screwed" then the delusion is yours.

Now if we could get them to admit institutional bias against Michigan football...

I actively like Pat Fitzgerald.

Fight me.

I may or may not have screamed something to the effect of

"Jesus FUCK, Collins! North and South when you're that close to the sticks! NORTH AND FUCKING SOUTH!"

09/29/2018 - 8:28pm And fuck you.
Stop watching…

And fuck you.

Stop watching if you're this pissed off.  The rest of us will somehow manage to soldier on without you.

Then why are you still here, you whiny little bitch?

09/24/2018 - 4:02pm Yeah, not sure I get this…

Yeah, not sure I get this one. Apparently i'm a little odd for finding "fake everything" to be unattractive. 

To each their own. 

09/21/2018 - 2:12pm OSU, MSU and Notre Dame.

OSU, MSU and Notre Dame. 

I view Minnesota, PSU and Nebraska as minor rivals a good step and a half behind the other three.

It also means that when there are things really worth being offended and/or pissed of about people don't take them as seriously.

You get your kicks from coming in here and pissing people off.

You need psychological help. 

09/15/2018 - 1:13pm Nebraska is rather poop.

Nebraska is rather poop.

08/28/2018 - 6:35pm Should we also question the…

Should we also question the groupthink that calls others who disagree with us "groupthink"?

08/27/2018 - 9:47pm Honestly, if you can't get…

Honestly, if you can't get excited about walking up Stadium (or Main) on game day to watch Michigan play football, particularly when we have as good a team as we do this year, I don't know what to tell you.

I get why Brian (and others) are sad or can't muster up the same excitement as they once did.  There's a hell of a lot negative going around in the world today in college football and beyond.

But we still have Michigan football.  It's one of the vanishingly small number of things that I truly look forward to year after year.

08/27/2018 - 4:54pm The South Carolina game…

The South Carolina game broke Brian. 

I understand why. That game is one that shouldn't be lost by a great coach. 

But if he couldn't haul himself out of his malaise long enough to write an optimistic article about a very good Michigan team maybe he should've passed the duty on to someone who could. 

Obligatory "It's his blog, he can do what he wants", of course, but aside from a small handful of fans here who seem to revel in misery, I think he's forgotten who his audience is. 

08/20/2018 - 2:37pm While it's sad for us as…

While it's sad for us as football fans, I can't help but think that ultimately Grant will make us prouder off the field than he ever would have on it. 

That's not a slam on his potential as a player. It's a statement on his qualities as a person. 

Go Blue forever, young man. 

08/16/2018 - 10:01am Yes, I do, since you're…

Yes, I do, since you're cherry picking to suit your narrative. I'm not sure why you're choosing to ignore his first two seasons, but only you can answer that. 

Clearly, though, you're not particularly interested in context when it doesn't suit your argument. 

I guess we'll both find out whether your concerns end up being proved valid or whether they're pearl-clutching as the season progresses. 

08/16/2018 - 9:52am A) The game was played away…

A) The game was played away from Michigan Stadium. In the South.  It was an away game. 

B) I guess it shouldn't surprise me that you want to move the goalposts. The reality doesn't match your narrative, after all, and if you're not the most negative poster on this board you're certainly in the running. 

At least we agree that we'll win. That's probably the most positive thing I've ever seen you post on here, so I'll take that and call it good. 

08/16/2018 - 9:15am First, Harbaugh HAS defeated…

First, Harbaugh HAS defeated a ranked team on the road: Florida 2017. They were ranked #17.

Second, it's a dumb argument anyway. Michigan has only played four games on the road against ranked opponents during Harbaugh's tenure. Of those four, three were against top 5 teams (#2 PSU and #5 Wisconsin last year,  #2 OSU in 2016).  In each of those cases we were the dog and in two of them John O'Korn was our QB.

You criticize people in here for being overly optimistic. I suggest to you that you're being overly pessimistic.

NOW I know it's football season!

You're entitled to your opinion.

Mine is that I liked how crisp and quick Shea's release is in that clip. 

08/15/2018 - 10:00am 2014.

2014.

It takes a truly impressive level of sustained ineptitude with no real hope for the future for me to feel depressed and apathetic about Michigan football. 

The 2014 season did that to me. I didn't even watch the last three games. Haven't to this day. 

08/15/2018 - 9:49am I realize that's just a…

I realize that's just a small clip, but i'm really liking the crispness and speed of Shea's release.
