01/18/2018 - 2:20pm I'm in total "I'll believe it

I'm in total "I'll believe it when I see it" mode.  I've seen far too many rosy pre season predictions for Michigan football over the last 10 years that have come to nothing.  

12/31/2017 - 8:38pm I just don't share the same

I just don't share the same optimisim that many people here seem to have.  It seemed like everytime we came up against even a marginally competent run D this year, it was a slog.  The offense couldn't stay on the field and the defense got worn out.  I hope I'm wrong, but I think this is going to be a low scoring game that could easily go either way.

12/17/2017 - 12:31pm Star Wars

I'm a casual Star Wars fan and I left the movie a bit disappointed. It all seemed a bit forced, especially the parts with Luke, no pun intended. I’m not sure if Mark Hamill’s heart just wasn’t in it, or if it was bad writing or what, but something was definitely off IMHO. It seemed like the story was burdened by having to pay homage to the original trilogy over and over, i.e. the cringe worthy CGI Yoda scene. Hopefully now that Luke and Han are gone the series can move on. I thought Rouge One was an excellent example of the sort of story telling that can be created from the Star Wars universe without getting bogged down by past events, story lines, and characters.

The only thing worse than "THE SKY IS FALLING" people, are the people who overcompensate by proclaiming "IGNORE WHAT YOU SEE, THE SKY IS DEFINITELY NOT FALLING AND HERE IS SOME ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE FOR YOU".

11/25/2017 - 6:00pm *shrug*

Looking back on it, it kinda feels like that late hit penalty on Crable in the 2006 game was the moment Michigan's national relevance evaporated. Not much has gone right for this team since then.

11/17/2017 - 3:43pm 33-10 Wisconsin

33-10 Wisconsin

11/05/2017 - 3:17pm Win out?

Easy turbo.  We got curb stomped by the one ligitimately good team we played so far this year.  I'd say simply not embarrassing ourselves against Wisconsin and OSU along with showing some improvment out of the O-Line/QB would be a big win.  Bonus points for a bowl victory.  

10/27/2017 - 7:12pm We win because we are less bad than they are.....




10/22/2017 - 1:38am Anyone who watched Michigan's

Anyone who watched Michigan's preceeding games with any shred of objectivity could see this coming.  I feel like I'm watching the same shitty movie i've seen so many times since 2007.  Michigan shows obvious signs of problems, but somehow comes into mid October 5-1 or 6-0 and people just drink the kool-aid.  The first decent conference opponent we run into, we shit the bed and it's all down hill from there.  I thought we got off the ride with JH, but here we go again.  

10/22/2017 - 1:27am Sigh

It's not like I expected JH to never loose, but damn, this felt like a RR loss.  Completely out classed and outcoached in every possible way.  Sometimes I miss the 8-4 Carr years.  We lost, but outside of 2007, we were rarely embarrassed as we were tonight, and probably will be against OSU.  I dunno man, I want inner peace, but something is wrong here, you can see on JH's face.  

10/21/2017 - 6:36pm I'm so scared

10/21/2017 - 4:26pm 31-10 Penn State

I think this gets ugly. Michigan looses the field position battle on 3 and outs, turnovers and special teams miscues. The overworked defense can't defend the short field the offense keeps leaving them and Penn State blows it open in the late 3rd quarter.

I wish I could upvote this 1000 times.  Great movie.

11/13/2016 - 1:08am Meaningless Game

Mighigan attemped to out Iowa - Iowa today and suceeded magnificently.  At least it happened on a game that turned out not to matter.

11/12/2016 - 11:58pm Yea, I thought JH was all

Yea, I thought JH was all about the "meritocracy", so its a bit surprising that Smith has seen so much playing time.  Especially with this struggles to hit open holes. 

11/12/2016 - 11:51pm Get the fuck out with that

Get the fuck out with that nonsense.

11/12/2016 - 11:45pm This sucks, but given what

This sucks, but given what else happened today, its meaningless.  We are still right where we started at 8pm.  If we win out, we go to the playoffs. 

11/12/2016 - 11:38pm Those play calls after the

Those play calls after the last interception were straight out of the Carr/Debord/Hoke/Borges playbook.  I had really hoped I'd seen the end of that ultra conservative bullshit.  

11/12/2016 - 11:18pm This is still dangerous for

This is still dangerous for us if we can't get some yards and kill a bunch of clock. 

11/12/2016 - 10:14pm Makes sense, we are handing

Makes sense, we are handing them the game.

11/12/2016 - 10:01pm Eh, making bad teams look

Eh, making bad teams look good has been a Michigan tradition since 2008 or so.  Looks like it's dying off with Harbaugh, but like a bad STD, flare ups like tonight will happen. 

11/12/2016 - 7:29pm Clemson is playing like

Clemson is playing like toasty hot garbage, and at home no less.  Good for them.

11/12/2016 - 7:24pm I wish I could be as

I wish I could be as confident as some of you are.  I think this is going to be a pretty close game all the way through. 

11/05/2016 - 9:29pm Yea but...

....I love watching him destroy people on kick returns. 

10/29/2016 - 8:32pm The general consensus around

The general consensus around here (backed up by the stats) was that Michigan would completely dominate MSU.  So its understandable why some fans are in such an uproar over the team's performance.  I don't understand why someone can't be happy with the win and also look critically at how the team played.  Terms like "fluky" and "iffy" to describe what happened is rose tinted glasses nonsense and even more ridiculous when your 1st team defense is still on the field.  These weren't garbage time points.  They were genuine and somewhat concerning defensive breakdowns especially considering how dominate we were supposed to be.  I'm happy with the win, but it was far from the beatdown most (including myself) thought it would be.

I think Jed York deserves consideration.

It feels like 20 years.

11/21/2015 - 9:49pm It's nice to see a coach

It's nice to see a coach freak out like Harbaugh did.  I'd have to go back and watch it on DVR, but I'm pretty sure after at least two of those huge freakouts the defense recorded a sack or negative yardage play.  They really seemed to be feeding off of his energy.  So much better than blank stares and golf claps.  

OSU's tears of unfathomable sadness taste delicious, but they will bring their A game next week.  Michigan has a legitimate shot, but I'd sure feel better with Glasgow out there plugging run holes. 

11/21/2015 - 9:21pm Hopefully.  That is still a

Hopefully.  That is still a very talented team and I can't see them making the same mistake with Elliott twice, especially after watching the Indiana tape.

11/15/2015 - 5:16pm Michigan has been terrible on

Michigan has been terrible on the road for the last several years against anything remotely resembling a quality team.  The last quality win?  Sugar Bowl?  Capital One? Notre Dame 06'? Ouch.  

11/14/2015 - 5:35pm Refreshing to not throw in

Refreshing to not throw in the towel with :47 left in the half.  Those are the small things that can turn into big things in close games.  What a difference a year and an entire coaching staff make.  Hopefully another difference is halftime adjustments, as in, I hope there are adjustments, especially on defense. 

10/18/2015 - 1:05am Meh.  After the initial

Meh.  After the initial shock, I mostly feel indifference towards the whole thing.  After the unmitigated tire fire of the last 7 years this seems small.  Yes, the manner in which the game was lost was shocking, but it was also a fluke.  It was much more depressing for me to watch RR and BH teams go out and be totally uncompetitive with no signs of any meaningful player progression week after week, year after year, death by a thousand cuts if you will.  At least now I know there is hope for improvement instead of staring into the black hole of 3 man fronts, stuffed animals, vigorous clapping and competitive practices.  

10/14/2015 - 9:21pm Yes, yes and yes.  Exactly

Yes, yes and yes.  Exactly how I feel.  Fuck the last 7 years because they are making it almost impossible to enjoy this run.  I just keep waiting for the other shoe to drop, a 30pt blow out loss at the hands of a rival, a sudden complete regression on all fronts, teams doing what they havent been able to do all season against us.  It goes on and on.  I know its crazy, and our coaches are so much better than they have been in the past, but I just can't help that nagging negative feeling. 

09/26/2015 - 2:35pm After the last several

After the last several seasons I am struggling to comprehend what is going on here.

09/26/2015 - 2:20pm Well the O looks all

Well the O looks all disjointed, hopfully the D keeps up the pressure.

09/26/2015 - 2:18pm fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck

fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck

09/09/2015 - 1:24pm There is a lot of whistling

There is a lot of whistling past the graveyard around here.  I predict we will win, but again our O-line will struggle, JR is going to get forced into making dumb 3rd & long throws that will result in interceptions.  I think we get one rushing touchdown on a short field due to a turnover and a passing touchdown on a moonball thrown into triple coverage.  I'm going with 14-10 Michigan. 

09/06/2015 - 12:33am I agree with C and D, I think

I agree with C and D, I think our defense will be good, but it they could be even better if the offense could keep them off the field.  The problem is, when your QB is having to force throws because of constantly being in a 3rd & long situation, interceptions are going to happen.  In terms of B, I really wish Utah wouldn't have gifted us those garbage time points.  They looked like they were in prevent, just letting us pick them apart knowing we were killing time.  People shouldn't be hanging their hat on that series.   

09/05/2015 - 9:50pm I didn't see much in our last

I didn't see much in our last game that leads me to believe we will win 8 games.  I'm not quite sure where people are coming up with that.  If you don't have a run game, your offense becomes one dimensional and your defense spends the whole game on the field. Fine if your QB is a Payton Manning type throw god, not so fine if your QB is a turnover machine.  This has played out over and over again the past few years.  We'll devour some cupcakes and everyone will be happy until B1G play starts.  Then, once we face some real defenses, like we did at Utah, the wheels will come off.  Harbaugh will get this fixed, but it won't be this year.  I'm saying 6 wins. 

09/04/2015 - 11:10am Perry had some awesome blocks

Perry had some awesome blocks on the outside, I loved that.

09/04/2015 - 1:18am If I'd never watched a down

If I'd never watched a down of Michigan football since 2007 I'd probably buy what you are selling.  However things have happened since then, most of them bad and most of them started out in similar fashion to this.  No run game, turnover prone QBs, defenses that spend too much time on the field and predictible one dimensional offenses.  We blow or first game or have an underwhelming performance against a cupcake and people come out of the woodwork to proclaim how X coach is going to get it turned around and we are all overreacting.  All that bullshit never lasted past our first trip to the B1G woodshed and guys like you were bitching right along with the rest of us.  

09/04/2015 - 1:03am I'm confused as to why Mich

I'm confused as to why Mich waited so long to go into hurry up offense.  We were down 14pts almost all of the 4th and it seemed like things were moving in slow motion until about 2min left when the game was all but decided.  

09/04/2015 - 12:18am It has nothing to do with

It has nothing to do with being a fair weather fan. The fair weather fans are long gone after the last 8 years.

09/03/2015 - 11:58pm This game was a shit show for

This game was a shit show for Michigan. It's the same recipe we've seen the past few years. No run game, turnover prone QB, overworked defense and a general inability to put it together on the road. Hopefully JH does what RichRod and Hoke couldn't and find a way to fix this unholy mess with available players or else we are in for a long 4 years. At least Peppers looked good.

09/03/2015 - 11:43pm I still can't figure out why

I still can't figure out why they waited so long to go hurry up. We are down 14pts and acting like we are winning by 14.

Ruddock is DR without the winning smile and running ability upside.

09/03/2015 - 11:32pm At what point do we go hurry

At what point do we go hurry up for fucks sake? Does JH think we are winning?
