Hockey and football have lots of improving to do in this regard.

I've been saying 9-3 too. All the people that look at this team and this schedule and say that the floor is 9 or 10 are just the same old hardline homers who predict 11+ wins every year.

06/08/2018 - 8:51pm Well, the guy who played the…

Well, the guy who played the best was back-up for a while last year.

06/02/2018 - 4:08pm I actually thought that might

I actually thought that might be a reasonable prediction for basketball, but football? No.

05/29/2018 - 6:14pm All true. 4 years and no

All true. 4 years and no hardware to speak of looks bad to a kid who already has no memory of Michigan ever being a conference power.

05/27/2018 - 11:12pm Losing to Ohio State in 2016.

Losing to Ohio State in 2016. If they had won that then gone on to win the conference it would have validated them. Instead the program is still thought of as a has-been.

05/25/2018 - 4:43pm I absolutely am lumping

I absolutely am lumping people together. That is true. There is a ton of bad hivemind on this board and that's why. There are virtually no level-headed takes here. It's always about how Michigan is getting screwed and has bad luck and everybody else is overrated.

05/25/2018 - 4:31pm Nothing I said was even

Nothing I said was even dick-ish. They just don't want to ever hear dissenting opinions so they can preserve their echo chamber where Michigan is the best team in the country every year despite the results.

05/25/2018 - 4:14pm People take positivity to the

People take positivity to the point of idiocy here. Predicting 11+wins every year is dumb. Predicting that Black and DPJ would be better as freshmen than Chesson and Darboh were as seniors is dumb. Calling every 3* player Michigan signs "underrated" is dumb.

It's not negative to take an objective viewpoint or wait-and-see attitude. It doesn't make anybody less of a fan either.

05/25/2018 - 4:02pm If I honestly don't agree

If I honestly don't agree with what somebody is saying I'm not going to change my opinion just because that's what some other Michigan fan is saying.

Nothing I said about is even bad. People here just get so upset if you don't take a hardline homer position on everything.

05/25/2018 - 3:54pm I absolutely am trolling him

I absolutely am trolling him with the same dumb comment that gets pointed at me and so many others who don't immediately join whatever the latest circlejerk is here.

05/25/2018 - 3:53pm The joke was that Gary could

The joke was that Gary could not have been underrated because he was the top recruit in the nation.

05/25/2018 - 3:36pm Whatever you say, Sparty

Whatever you say, Sparty troll.

05/25/2018 - 2:37pm TE doesn't seems like a big

TE doesn't seems like a big position of need and Deal is a 3*. 

Not saying I'd be disappointed to get him, but is that really a "huge pick up?"

05/22/2018 - 11:56pm If a true freshman QB playing

If a true freshman QB playing in relief is a bigger problem to our defense than our defense is to him, then he is pretty fucking good.

05/22/2018 - 9:42pm That last game of his just

That last game of his just made everybody wonder why our offense never looked like that before. It was like he saved every last bit of creativity in playcalling for a Citrus Bowl.

 

Also, Arrington played like a beast that game. Pretty sure he made a couple circus catches.

05/22/2018 - 4:42pm Maybe people should stop

Maybe people should stop leaning into all the stupid tropes they've created here by being total homers. I'm sure people said Rashan Gary was underrated too.

05/22/2018 - 4:40pm Winning big games (rivalries,

Winning big games (rivalries, major bowls, etc.)

05/22/2018 - 3:46pm First comment already saying

First comment already saying a recruit is underrated. Mgoblog gonna mgoblog.

05/22/2018 - 2:57pm If you don't know if you have

If you don't know if you have a decent OT or QB then it's far from a sure thing that you'll be really good.

05/22/2018 - 9:32am That only makes it more

That only makes it more ridiculous to have Michigan at 5. Frankly, it doesn't even make sense to rank that many B1G teams that high. There's no way 5 B1G teams finish in the top 12. They play eachother too much.

05/19/2018 - 10:52pm Ohio State has just been

Ohio State has just been better every year. Better coached, better players, better player development. Be better.

05/15/2018 - 12:19pm "Unfortunately, for some damn

"Unfortunately, for some damn reason OSU keeps winning these coin flips from us."

Well, if that isn't an analogy for how this rivalry goes I don't know what is.

05/09/2018 - 9:00pm Southern recruit goes north:

Southern recruit goes north: "They don't know how cold it gets up there."

Northern recruit goes south: "They don't know how hot it gets down there."

05/09/2018 - 2:40pm Stars don't matter on mgoblog

Stars don't matter on mgoblog when we sign 3-star guys. Eeverybody just claims they're a sleeper. When we sign a 5-star guy, suddenly star ratings matter again.

05/09/2018 - 2:38pm Saying that Meyer never stays

Saying that Meyer never stays anywhere very long is like saying Harbaugh wears out his welcome everywhere. Harbaugh wore out his welcome once. Meyer bolted on only Florida. Every other time each of them moved was purely just a coaching job upgrade.

05/08/2018 - 5:19pm Most games are a pretty small

Most games are a pretty small sample size individually, but he played in 8 games while logging just 1 game with a QB rating below 160. He threw 2 passes in that game and completed 1.

For reference Peters played 6 games and logged 1 game with QB rating over 160.

05/08/2018 - 3:16pm They were 1-7 in conference

They were 1-7 in conference with only 1 of those losses coming by less than 10 points. Vanderbilt was BAD. Trying to claim otherwise is plain dumb and nothing more than an attempt to create a favorable view of Patterson.

05/08/2018 - 12:50pm Doesn't surprise me. Haskins

Doesn't surprise me. Haskins was already shredding us and other teams last year.

05/02/2018 - 10:57am People hate Harbaugh not

People hate Harbaugh not because they're threatened by him but because he's at Michigan and he's in the news a lot despite not winning anything.

will get you labeled as a troll on this board.  But it's possible to be realistic and still be a Michigan fan.  You don't have to predict a NC every year to be one.

 

You just commented that you don't have to make crazy predictions to be a Michigan fan but now you say Harbaugh should be making the playoffs every year. You're the one setting an unattainably high standard.

05/01/2018 - 7:33pm Then I guess you're right,

Then I guess you're right, MSU will be bad. /s

05/01/2018 - 2:09pm Penn State ranks ahead of

Penn State ranks ahead of Michigan in team talent.

04/28/2018 - 4:31pm I expect 9 but 10 wins is

I expect 9 but 10 wins is achievable. Patterson isn't exactly a polished qb. He turns the ball over a whole lot. Wide receivers are still almost entirely unproven. Ridiculously difficult schedule. They'll drop some but still be a strong team. Hopefully they'll be good enough that they can actually win a big game on the big stage (OSU, NY6 bowl, B1G, etc.)

04/28/2018 - 4:27pm I'd say 2 to 4 people

I'd say 2 to 4 people predicted 8 wins.

04/28/2018 - 4:23pm I'm pretty sure that FPI and

I'm pretty sure that FPI and S&p+ both project Michigan at 8 to 9 wins. 10 to 12 seems ridiculous.

04/28/2018 - 4:08pm That's a load of bullshit.

That's a load of bullshit. Some people did predict 8 or 9 wins and they all got downvoted and shamed for being "sparty troll" because, well... that's what mgoblog does.

Reasonable prediction = troll

04/28/2018 - 4:06pm MSU was arguably not better

MSU was arguably not better than Michigan til they beat Penn State and convincingly won their bowl game while Michigan got smoked by Penn State and embarrassingly collapsed in the bowl game.

The argument just became dumb after the season was over.

04/25/2018 - 5:23pm Empty promises til proven

Empty promises til proven otherwise. Prove it on the field.

04/25/2018 - 3:11pm It's kinda weird coming from

It's kinda weird coming from an AD, but he sounds like mgoblog after Harbaugh was hired. High hopes don't equate to success.

04/23/2018 - 7:36pm Michigan State has had a

Michigan State has had a better track record recently with O-linemen than Michigan. Until Michigan can show to develop offensive line talent, I don't know why recruits would choose Michigan.

04/15/2018 - 12:21am correlation, not causation.

correlation, not causation.

04/15/2018 - 12:20am Michigan is winning now. They

Michigan is winning now. They just aren't better than MSU or OSU which is understandable because they have hall of fame coaches. Earliest that'll change is when Dantonio and Meyer are gone.

04/15/2018 - 12:17am Why you should be optimistic?

Why you should be optimistic? You shouldn't be. You've probably been optimistic only to be let down for so long that you should take a "wait and see" approach. I expect 8 wins again and the preseason FPI is agreeing.

04/13/2018 - 4:36pm OSU didn't offer either

OSU didn't offer either Kinnel or Hudson.

04/13/2018 - 4:31pm 8 season wins with potential

8 season wins with potential for 9 with the bowl.

04/13/2018 - 4:15pm When was the last time

When was the last time Michigan was able to win a recruiting battle against OSU for a guy from Ohio? I feel like there's already no chance he doesn't go to OSU.

Digging into those deep stats to hit people with new levels of stupid.

So, McDoom and Crawford are just afterthoughts with bunches of underclassmen having leapt past them?
