01/16/2019 - 2:45am Fields will get eligibility…

Fields will get eligibility simply due to the fact the NCAA doesn't want to deal with the shit show that will follow if they deny him.

Young black kid verbally harassed by a racist and the NCAA won't let him play? National media would set up shop in Indianapolis for a week.

 

01/10/2019 - 9:11pm If you think there's anyway…

If you think there's anyway the NCAA doesn't grant Fields waiver...I've got a bridge to sell you.

NCAA wants no part of what will follow if they make a black student athlete, who was verbally harassed by a racist, sit.

What would follow in the media would be something to behold. They've already compared the NCAA to a "plantation" anyway. This would be the final straw. And it would get national coverage.

NCAA will probably take all of 5 minutes discussing this case.

01/08/2019 - 11:46pm No. Guess everyone who…

No. Guess everyone who presents an opinion other than the one you lemmings want to hear is a "troll".

01/02/2019 - 2:49pm What's your opinion of…

What's your opinion of Harbaugh's DUI?

12/29/2018 - 9:05pm Figures OSU lucks out by not…

Figures OSU lucks out by not playing Bama. Instead, they'll probably win the Rose and send Urban off into the sunset.

 

12/29/2018 - 7:23pm Harbaugh has lost this team…

Harbaugh has lost this team.  Anyone that doesn't see it is blind.

Look at all the players sitting out. All the transfers. The way players ignore him.

He's worn out his welcome...like he did at every other previous job. 

 

12/22/2018 - 3:43pm Did MSU out recruit OSU? Did…

Did MSU out recruit OSU? Did Iowa? Did Purdue?

There's a ton a parity in college football. And probably not much difference in whether you're ranked #5 in the recruiting rankings or #25. 

Urban was always a great recruiter, and decent x's and o's coach. But let's not pretend like Michigan had a bunch of nobody's on the team.  Michigan easily had the talent to compete over the last 7-8 years.  

12/20/2018 - 5:39pm Urban will be back coaching…

Urban will be back coaching OSU in 3 years after Day bolts to the NFL. Book it.

12/12/2018 - 3:56pm Pretty much known 2 weeks…

Pretty much known 2 weeks ago when he said he wasn't sure whether he would play in the Rose Bowl...that was a big clue.

He could have declared for the NFL last year, but elected to go back to school. So it was almost certain he was done after this year.

12/11/2018 - 4:21pm The irony is lost on you, I…

The irony is lost on you, I'm sure.

12/11/2018 - 4:00pm Yeah, censorship is always…

Yeah, censorship is always the answer.

12/11/2018 - 3:58pm Mlive, Freepress, and USA…

Mlive, Freepress, and USA Today apparently agree.

12/06/2018 - 12:03pm Urban already said he plans…

Urban already said he plans to stay in Columbus. Will probably end up getting a job in the athletic dept.

11/29/2018 - 6:27pm Only way Michigan could…

Only way Michigan could possibly get in is if OSU got blown out AND Haskins got hurt or something.

Absent that, they're not going to take a 2-loss Michigan over a 2-loss OSU that not only beat us head to head, but blew us out.

11/28/2018 - 6:14pm Uh, OSU does not want to be…

Uh, OSU does not want to be Michigan.  That was maybe true 80 years ago or whenever they started that gold pants thing.

Michigan is like OSU in the 90s.  Playing tight and not to lose.

11/21/2018 - 12:42pm lol. Sam is the biggest…

lol. Sam is the biggest homer out there.

11/20/2018 - 9:28pm Exactly. Anyone who watched…

Exactly. Anyone who watched knows it's not his ribs.  Probably separated shoulder to some degree.

I'd be surprised if he plays.

11/20/2018 - 6:41pm OSU fans don't seem very…

OSU fans don't seem very confident with this team. I'd say around half don't think they will win.

Don't be a dick and you won't have any problems. Start rubbing it in, or gloat, and I'm sure you will find trouble.

11/20/2018 - 3:10am Would be a lot less nervous…

Would be a lot less nervous if this game were in AA.

Columbus is a tough place to play. And Harbaugh's teams have looked underwhelming on the road the last few years.

We should win on paper, but I'm not sure how this team will respond to the kind of pressure they are facing.

The Game is as much mental as it is physical.

11/19/2018 - 3:23pm He can't quit without paying…

He can't quit without paying OSU. He could "retire"...if there's a clause for that in his contract.

Same reason other schools are forced to pay the coach's remaining contract if he goes to another school.

11/19/2018 - 3:12pm Actually, worst case for OSU…

Actually, worst case for OSU at this point is probably the Rose Bowl.

Most likely scenario is UM beats OSU and Northwestern, which sends OSU to the Rose.

 

11/19/2018 - 3:01pm Urban is under contract…

Urban is under contract until like 2023.  He can't just quit, unless OSU allows him out of his contract. That's the point of a contract.

I'll believe it when I see it. Cowherd talks out his ass most of the time. Did the same thing with Michigan's last coaching search

11/19/2018 - 1:56pm Maybe. But OSU has a lot of…

Maybe. But OSU has a lot of players on their team that aren't even from Ohio, so they probably don't have the same perspective on the rivalry as people who grew up with it. 

Why poke the bear is my point. Same way MSu always seemed to play out their ass after michigan players said negative things.  Talk after, not before.

11/19/2018 - 1:45pm Why give them bb material?…

Why give them bb material? Just my opinion.

11/19/2018 - 9:38am The only seats that are…

The only seats that are going for slightly above face (and still about $50 over face) are the bad seats. If you want pretty good seats they are $500+/ea.  Great seats well into the $1000's/ea.

11/19/2018 - 9:33am Cheapest tickets on stubhub…

Cheapest tickets on stubhub are in the $250 range and that's in 6c...which I believe is the Michigan section.

Not sure what face for this game is...$180?  Make sure you don't buy student or faculty tickets or you will need an OSU ID.

11/18/2018 - 6:45pm OSU was actually 7 point…

OSU was actually 7 point favorites in that game.

It was probably Oregon in 2015, actually. Or possibly one of their Oklahoma matchups.

11/18/2018 - 6:39pm Don't like the fact Urban…

Don't like the fact Urban will get to play the underdog role. 

Not even sure when the last time OSU was an underdog...Bama in 2015?

11/16/2018 - 1:58am With the way this team has…

With the way this team has played on the road the last few years, I don't see how anybody could possibly think this will be a cake walk. Throw in Urban's record in rivalry games, and there's a reason Vegas will basically have this as a "pick 'em".

I'd be a lot less nervous if this game was in AA.

 

11/13/2018 - 3:29pm McMurphy is getting blasted…

McMurphy is getting blasted for this now. Hard to imagine why he even printed this.  When your best source is the estranged sketchy father, I don't think I'd rely on him to make some serious accusations.  Maybe you go to print with this if you heard it straight from the horse's mouth (Trevon Grimes)...

Best case is this gets retracted, worst case is McMurphy gets sued...as it appears OSU is already gearing up for legal action.

10/15/2018 - 10:37pm OSU fans are concerned with…

OSU fans are concerned with Purdue. Has nothing to do with us. 

That said, they are banged up and will start to get more guys back at full strength as the season goes on.

OSU has tons of talent and they will be fine. And until Michigan they can prove they can play a complete game on the road, I think it's laughable for people to feel "confident" for that game. We haven't won a game there in nearly 20 years. Going on the road and winning in a hostile environment is one of the hardest things to do in college football.

10/14/2018 - 8:19pm OSU's defense was missing 5…

OSU's defense was missing 5 starters against Minnesota. They're not getting Bosa back for at least another few weeks, but they'll start getting some of those other guys back this week.

10/14/2018 - 2:23am Pretty meaningless stat. Has…

Pretty meaningless stat. Has nothing to do with the current season.

10/01/2018 - 9:23am Are counterfeit tickets…

Are counterfeit tickets really a problem? I could see that for big games when tickets are a few hundred bucks. But most of the games this year you've been able to buy on the secondary market for well below face, and in many cases in the $20 range. 

09/29/2018 - 11:49pm Not as dumb as Meyer taking…

Not as dumb as Meyer taking a delay of game on a 2 point conversion when he had 3 TO's

09/27/2018 - 11:47am Yeah, so much "silence" in…

Yeah, so much "silence" in Columbus that they let the police investigate and determined no charges should be filed.

Conversely, PSU were the ones who remained "silent" and refused to go to the police about Sandusky.

I have some apples and oranges you guys should compare.

09/26/2018 - 8:45pm Funny, I don't remember many…

Funny, I don't remember many UM fans calling for Taylor Lewan to be kicked off the team for threatening a rape victim? Or Brendan Gibbons to be kicked off the team for actually raping.  Or Hoke to be fired for playing Gibbons after he was kicked out of school for sexual assault.

Glass houses and all.

09/22/2018 - 10:54am $53 is the lowest price for…

$53 is the lowest price for a single ticket.  If you want 2 together they are $70/ea.

Lowest price right now for UM/Nebraska is $18.  And that's for a B10 matchup, not Tulane.

09/22/2018 - 10:35am Lowest price right now for…

Lowest price right now for Ohio State/Tulane is $75. With most in the $100-200 range.

It's not everywhere.

09/20/2018 - 1:27pm Looks like people are saying…

Looks like people are saying 4-6 weeks.  That would put him back well before the UM game.

09/20/2018 - 1:15pm OSU's d-line actually looked…

OSU's d-line actually looked better after he left the game against TCU.

09/20/2018 - 9:28am Meyer and Gene Smith don't…

Meyer and Gene Smith don't believe Courtney Smith was abused.  That's the difference.

It's a lot easier to apologize if you think you actually did something wrong.

09/19/2018 - 3:18pm Who was he supossed to…

Who was he supossed to report it to?  The police? They were already investigating.

09/16/2018 - 2:16pm I'm confused on what some of…

I'm confused on what some of you wanted Urban to do here.

How exactly would firing Zach Smith and cutting off his source of income help improve this situation?

Urban knew the police were already involved.  It wasn't like he tried to hide this incident from authorities.  Law enforcement were ultimately the only ones that could do anything here.

 

09/05/2018 - 8:54pm Improved? Yes? Currently…

Improved? Yes. Currently short of expectations? Yes.

UM didn't hire Harbaugh to be a small step up from Hoke.

Dumb article. No surprise from the Washington comPOST

09/04/2018 - 11:51pm Only way to hide o-line…

Only way to hide o-line issues is to run a spread with a mobile QB. It's too late for that now.

Defense will have to keep UM in games.  And that's a heavy lift when the offense can't sustain drives.

09/03/2018 - 2:02pm Would love to know why we…

Would love to know why we can't find some decent ex-Michigan players to represent us well in the media.

The only guy that can string a complete thought together is Griese. 

09/01/2018 - 10:31pm Culture of the program is…

Culture of the program is that it's "okay" to lose.

Go tell that to Bama or OSU.  It's national news when they drop a game.

08/31/2018 - 12:37pm What affiliation does Mary…

What affiliation does Mary Jo White have to OSU?

08/31/2018 - 12:30pm And the independent…

And the independent committee...
