Your preferences are custom designed for Michigan football lol
|12/10/2018 - 2:32pm||Fair point. If I had the…||
Fair point. If I had the time or the will, I might be all over Florida boards saying risking getting mauled by the M defense isn't worth risking the injuries... ;-)
|12/10/2018 - 2:01pm||Not suddenly. After he…||
Not suddenly. After he dropped all the easy passes in the most important game of the year, when our injury-depleted and injured DL couldn't get any pressure, and needed to stay off the field.
|12/10/2018 - 12:32pm||The pain comes often, and…||
The pain comes often, and sometimes all-too-sharply, but I enjoy being a fan very much.
I wish more people here did!
|12/10/2018 - 12:27pm||I expect shut-down defense.
I expect shut-down defense.
On the offensive side of the ball, I expect lots of chunk runs early from Evans and Tru, with 1/3 of the downs being a nice 15-25 yard completion to a variety of receivers, leading to several quick scores early.
Then, in the second half, a mix of more successful running with a whole lot of a healed Dylan McCaffrey making good throws to crisp routes in the short game while trying to keep the ball inbounds. Drives will chew more clock and still be successful.
After putting up 42 in the first half, only 21 on offense in the second half, but bolstered by a defensive or special teams score as well, the game's perfection is only marred by one sad field goal a-la-franklin.
What happened in The Game hurt a ton, but I'm over it. Hope springs eternal. It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine.
Happy Holidays, everyone
|12/09/2018 - 7:57pm||Y'all really have no idea…||
Y'all really have no idea how much people down here listen to Penis Finebaum, and his anti Michigan crusade has been in full gear--nevermind that each year before signing day he assures is that Jim is gone to the NFL. Bagmen or not, Petenis shouldn't be allowed to carry on like that. If not an NCAA violation, how about felony libel?
|12/08/2018 - 11:58pm||Actually, our bagmen = a top…||
Actually, our bagmen = a top notch education and an unsurpassed alumni network, which in the end is worth more than what Bama's bagmen pay, but you can't expect 90% of 18 year olds to perceive that.
|12/08/2018 - 10:23pm||When the football recruit…||
When the football recruit flip thread gets five times the replies as the 10-0 bball posbang thread, it's not a basketball school.
|12/07/2018 - 12:27pm||Would be so much better than…||
Would be so much better than Cuba, right?
How about a pacific cruise toward Japan, following some great battles (and hitting some of those island nations with some huge/raw OL prospects!) and ending in Japan?
|12/07/2018 - 12:26pm||Yeah, because these trips do…||
Yeah, because these trips do nothing to improve the education or experience of the students, or the maturation or cohesion of the team of athletes... /s
WTF is the matter with you people? These trips make better human beings; it's not like he's arranging team excursions to the tattoo parlor and the car dealership... is that what you want?
|12/07/2018 - 12:22pm||We won a bunch of meaningful…||
We won a bunch of meaningful games this year. All these people who are like "8-4, but 6-6 is a real possibility, with a ceiling of 9-3 and floor of 4-8" before the season, now crapping on us at 10-2 with great wins over Wisconsin, Penn State, and MSU. GTFO this board.
Coach is making men. And these men are playing better football each year. And a big part of our success this year was maturation and team cohesion.
So these trips absolutely do help win games.
Never mind that they are very attractive to high school kids who have been counting on football their entire lives to get them out into the wide world.
The trips are great. Your comment is bad, and you should feel bad.
|12/07/2018 - 12:16pm||I dunno... the top group is…||
I dunno... the top group is at least as good this year...
|12/07/2018 - 11:37am||Hoke's a great guy, but…||
Hoke's a great guy, but... Recruiting is getting the kinds of players that we need. Can't get all your top choices, and academic requirements are limiting us. But looking at this 2019 class that promises to finish up with a couple more top kids, I'm not ready to have Hoke back for anything beyond Special Assistant for Clapping.
|12/07/2018 - 10:25am||Actually, they could pick up…||
Actually, they could pick up UCF, Memphis, Houston and still be about the same as the Pac12... would also gut the Group of 5 a bit as a bonus, keep them in their place.
|12/06/2018 - 7:34pm||For cultural experience,…||
For cultural experience, Cuba is a non-sequitur with the rest that have been done/planned.
Something in Asia, or maybe a cruise of the pacific, tracking big WWII battles in the spirit of the Normandy trip... that would be more like it.
|12/06/2018 - 5:37pm||Natty Lite is at least as…||
Natty Lite is at least as good as an NIT championship or a loss in the Sweet Sixteen.
But a football championship is like a bottle of E&J XO Brandy
|12/05/2018 - 10:32pm||Pete Finebaum is an asshat…||
Pete Finebaum is an asshat. There wasn't anywhere else to put this, and I didn't want to make my own thread for it, but felt a strong need to say it.
He and Carter are most definitely trying to affect recruiting, and neither has the capacity to imagine the family and relationships considerations that make this the ultimate in life and job satisfaction for Harbaugh.
He's going to coach here into his 70s. And will still be physically able to whip the ass of whomever is the suckeye coach at that time.

|12/04/2018 - 6:25pm||I think a lot of commenting…||
I think a lot of commenting and voting is still reflexive expressions of pain from The Game.
|12/04/2018 - 5:59am||1. There are a dozen teams…||
1. There are a dozen teams that could have beaten Saturday's Alabama
2. More football
3. Great players that catch fire
4. Cinderella runs
5. Multi-game weekends at one venue
6. More conference champs = continue to punish Notre Dame
7. Less stars whose last college game "doesn't count"
8. More teams with more practice so player development advantage doesn't exacerbate gap at the top
9. Rematches of The Game in the same season. Possibly twice (!!) if B1G goes to "best two" divisionless format
|12/03/2018 - 5:09pm||If we're gonna go nuts, let…||
If we're gonna go nuts, let's go all the way.
16, including all conf champs, with other bowls are to determine the 6 at large via combined scoring of votes from ten committees (one for each conference).
March Madness, meet December Delirium
|12/03/2018 - 1:03pm||Exactly. And the attitude…||
Exactly. And the attitude that it's meaningless does in fact say something (even if in a small, understandable way) about the way they view the school, the program, the team, and their teammates. How can it not?
I understand why players do it, but I still strongly disagree with them and dislike it.
This has fluctuated over time. If it continues, they ought to go back to not counting bowl games toward team records or player stats.
Anyway, I'd keep my comment to myself, but why waste a chance to have one of the most nested comments since 3.0?
|12/03/2018 - 12:43pm||MSU? FURMAN!!!
Of course, MSU in a smelly sort of way, and Furman in an awesome sort of way.
Michigan gets my first place vote. What team do we not beat right now?
|12/02/2018 - 12:42am||But the CFP committee has…||
But the CFP committee has been propping up LSU for just this occasion... it's irrational to put Georgia ahead of Oklahoma, but could well happen, since they've been telegraphing it for weeks...
|12/02/2018 - 12:15am||Don't really care if we play…||
Don't really care if we play a team that we've played often; it would be nice to have a more formidable opponent to test/display ourselves against.
Just win an win big.

We're football fans. We're all crazy. But you, my friend, take the crazy cake.

It's only been a week. Let her indulge in the pain a bit. It's part of the football fan experience.
|12/01/2018 - 8:27pm||Well, that stinks. UFR will…||
Well, that stinks. UFR will tell, but it felt like Steuber was a big weakness in Columbus...
|12/01/2018 - 1:06pm||We're in way better position…||
We're in way better position than UT. These kids may be great high school players, but there's no guarantee that's going to translate to anything. I live an hour south of Nashville--UT fans are entrenched in the 13th circle of the BPONE.
Best of luck to them
|12/01/2018 - 1:03pm||We're still hurting terribly…||
We're still hurting terribly from last week, but after a fair amount of analysis, I'm not convinced that we wouldn't have won a rematch today if the B1G did "2 best teams" instead of division winners (a la Big 12).
How much reading of the various analyses have you done this week? Especially with a month for Chase, Rashan, and Aubrey to heal up, I think we would get to Tua, stuff Alabama, and make a game of it.
Also, one of the best parts of making the championship game would have been a bunch of extra practices.
Bottom line: I don't think there's *really* a way, but if I had to choose between in the CFP or not in the CFP, I'd choose in AND WIN!
GO BLUE FOREVER!
|11/30/2018 - 8:34pm||Losing too many regular…||
Losing too many regular season games is a bigger deal than postseason day of the week...
|11/30/2018 - 6:57pm||I like where our offense is…||
I like where our offense is headed. Dylan of next year will be better than Shea of this year. But Shea of next year will be better still. He needs that time, and this offense needs for QBs to have a couple years to season before they're handed the reins.
|11/27/2018 - 11:55pm||The offense was actually…||
The offense was actually pretty good, and would have been that much better if we hadn't suddenly, mysteriously taken all RPO out that we had added in mid-season. We don't need an overhaul, but that sure was a strange decision.
|11/26/2018 - 11:48pm||If their guys are all faster…||
If their guys are all faster than your guys, and their QB can throw dimes... wtf you gonna do?
Never mind that we were able to apply zero pressure. I thought that if I went back and slowed it down, I'd find a bunch of holding. Maybe indications that Chase wasn't 100%. But I can't get the stomach up to go back and watch it again.
|11/26/2018 - 11:40pm||No... we should f*king beat…||
No... we should f*king beat OSU
|11/26/2018 - 9:56pm||Georgia would get in, and…||
Georgia would get in, and the suckeyes would still be ahead of us.
There. You have your weekend back.

These passing offenses make me jealous sometimes. I'm sorry coach. I'm ashamed of myself. 5 yards (we're better than 4) and a cloud of dust!!
