I'm not so sure about this:

 

Let’s start with the good. As we know, John Beilein prides himself on his team’s ability to play tough defense. A calling card of Michigan in the past has been their ability to chase shooters off the three point line, keep them off balance, and make them uncomfortable.

 

The D is great now but that's a recent development, not exactly a Beilein calling card.

Let's get 'em. Time for some payback. GO BLUE.

11/13/2018 - 11:18am I hate ND and have bumped…

I hate ND and have bumped them below Mich St and Penn St in my book, but you'd rather play Arkansas and Va Tech instead? I don't think either of those programs are particularly appealing or interesting and a win (or even an ugly close L like this year) vs ND goes much further than a similar outcome vs Ark, VT or Wash.

That Boston episode was great, best one they've done in a while.

11/12/2018 - 3:18pm Hahah I love it. 

Simpsons…

Hahah I love it. 

Simpsons is awful now but there is at least one good gag in every episode. And every once in a while, there's a gem of an episode.

Have some faith in the team, come on now

11/12/2018 - 1:15pm BEAT NOVA.

BEAT NOVA.

11/12/2018 - 1:09pm Yeah, the end of season…

Yeah, the end of season schedules in SEC are weird, mostly because they have to accommodate out-of-conference in-state rivals.  At least UGA-GT is a traditional rivalry (and who knows GT plays a wacky option offense that trips teams up sometimes).

But what I object to, and I complain about this every year, is the weak cupcake game in the 2nd to last game that all the SEC teams seem to have on the schedule. It's fine if you have to play an OOC rival in your last game but I think its bogus to insert an FCS team into your schedule in late November, especially when you take into account that other teams fighting for a CFP spot are in conferences that are beating each other up (I seem to remember a season a few years ago when Ohio State had to play Michigan State and Michigan back to back to end the season while Alabama got to play Georgia Southern before facing Auburn). 

11/08/2018 - 10:12am JUST BEAT EVERYBODY.

JUST BEAT EVERYBODY.

11/05/2018 - 10:04am Alabama looks like the best…

Alabama looks like the best team I've ever seen, if anyone beats them before the playoffs I'll be shocked. I watched that LSU game on Sat night and Alabama thoroughly handled them. LSU is pretty strong but they also never have a dynamic offense so maybe that's more on them than Alabama being so good? I don't know, but Alabama sure looks downright scary.

Still Alabama looks like suspiciously good. I understand that they're #1 and are undoubtedly the best team but I don't understand how they can be an a whole other level as every other team. They played a major rival, ranked #3 in the country and made them look like a high school team. They look so much bigger, stronger and faster than everybody else; they're suffocating on defense and unstoppable on offense and they hardly ever fumble or throw the occasional interception. They're terrifying.

Go to the HS game (or tell them to come over beforehand?) , tell your cousin's family you might take off early to catch the end of the Mich game. Monitor on your phone. If M is close you can boogie out towards the end of the HS game (hoping your cousin's team is winning in a blowout). If M is up big you can stay at the HS game.

10/31/2018 - 1:46pm Iowa is not a bad team but…

Iowa is not a bad team but every year they have at least one game they throw away due to Kirk's incompetence. They could've won this game. It was one of those games with coaching malpractice on both sides and each team doing everything they could to lose the game. Penn State didn't so much win as Iowa lost it. 

I'm hoping for a beatdown this weekend too. I can't stand Penn State.

10/31/2018 - 1:02pm That last drive was an…

That last drive was an embarassment. Seemed like Franklin was running a hurry up offense so they could get another TD and make the final score look bad (comparable to Michigan's beat down the year before). He's such a loser. Don Brown is gonna let him have it this year. 

10/31/2018 - 12:58pm Hell yes, LET'S DO IT. Take…

Hell yes, LET'S DO IT. Take care of business and show these punks who's boss. Want to see 2018 Revenge Tour leave a path of destruction. GO BLUE!

10/31/2018 - 10:35am Nevermind this. Let's not…

Nevermind this. Let's not lose focus of the YEAR OF SCORCHED EARTH. YOU'RE NEXT PENN STATE COME AND GET IT!!!

10/31/2018 - 10:30am Yeah - I think it put a chip…

Yeah - I think it put a chip on their shoulder and got them sick of all the talk about losing to rivals. I don't so much consider it the first game of this season as much as the last game of last season. THey've been a new team since then and I bet ND wouldn't want to play them now. 

Kick Penn State's ass.

10/26/2018 - 5:36pm 100% agree. The NFL is the…

100% agree. The NFL is the most heartless, corporate bullshit machine in the world. I used to love it but it's out of control now. I wouldn't mind it but its now all about being the MOST IMPORTANT THING in the f***ing world. 

10/26/2018 - 5:32pm Soccer is so old school that…

Soccer is so old school that there have been so few rule changes or style changes because the game is so simple.

One thing that definitely seems to have changed however is free kicks seem to be amazing now. I don't really remember free kicks being such a legit and dangerous scoring opportunity. it seems like every top team now has at least one dude who can BLAST a gnarly, bending, spinning shot and tuck it inside the post. I feel like that's something that has really changed. Players are so much better at this than they used to be.

10/26/2018 - 2:52pm NBA got bad . Used to love…

NBA got bad . Used to love it but they were definitely in need of rule changes. The game got too brutal, slow and uninteresting. But there was nothing like 80s-mid90s NBA playoff series - so physical to the point that you actually thought the teams wanted to actually kill each other ( I was a HUGE Knicks fan - still my favorite sports team, pro or college). My interest in the NBA began declining sharply in the early 2000s and after that Pistons run, I hit a period where I didn't watch an NBA game for like 5 years. But while the game is different now. 

THe NFL on the other hand is a complete mess. I used to salivate during the day for Monday Night Football but I don't even watch anymore. It sucks now and I find it completely uninteresting.

10/23/2018 - 12:23pm For real, Michigan just has…

For real, Michigan just has to win this game no matter what. If Ohio State loses all its games by then, so what? Just win the game.  FIND A WAY TO WIN.  GO BLUE!!!!!!

10/22/2018 - 12:18pm I knew NW was going to…

I knew NW was going to struggle in that game and not cover the spread. No matter who they play NW brings the other team down to their level. I don't know if any team in the country plays more close games than them. If they played Alabama or the Patriots they'd lose by 4 points. If they played the worst high school team in the country they'd win by 2. Could be a real interesting game against ND. ND hasn't played too many good teams and they've struggled against a few weak teams. 

10/22/2018 - 12:11pm Me too, I loved it. But,…

Me too, I loved it. But, then I remembered the Murphy brothers beat the shit out of him after that hah. Thank god that didn't happen.

10/20/2018 - 5:16pm He's got the 'fascie'…

He's got the 'fascie' haircut. Reschke probably loves him.

10/20/2018 - 5:10pm Defense was freaking…

Defense was freaking phenomenal. All game.

LET'S FUCKING DO IT!!!!!!!!!

 

10/19/2018 - 11:27am BEat they ass on 3!!

BEat they ass on 3!!

10/17/2018 - 1:12pm They need to win this game,…

They need to win this game, 100%.  They need to find a way and just win the game, if that means playing ugly, then fine. Just get it done. 

If they play well and somehow manage to lose then I might, might be OK with it (I'd still be pretty ticked off) But, I'll be furious if they come out flat and play awful the way they did against ND (and 1st half vs NW). I don't want to see them beat themselves again. If they actually play well, there are few teams who can beat them. GO BLUE!!

10/15/2018 - 12:33pm BEAT EVERYONE.

BEAT EVERYONE.

10/15/2018 - 12:25pm I remember that wild…

I remember that wild Illinois game (and that wild Northwestern game which was very similar). It was a night game in Champaign and there were two fumbles/bad calls that went Michigan's way, plays that would've been overruled if there had been replay. It might have been the last time Michigan got some luck from the refs.

10/14/2018 - 4:35pm They're not a bad team. But…

They're not a bad team. But more importantly they play hard. THey're mentally tough. And they play their ass off against good teams and especially Michigan (they absolutely have a mental edge on Michigan these days). Say what you will about 'disrespekt' but it works. They have an amazing record against highly ranked teams. That means they're better than they are lucky.

10/14/2018 - 3:29pm Yes, but they have better…

Yes, but they have better wins. They've beaten USC and Oklahoma and a decent TCU team. Michigan's only marquee win is a home game against Wisconsin. 

I'm a little nervous- I think this was too big of a jump. I fully expected Michigan to claw back and climb up the rankings but I didn't think they'd get here so soon.

10/14/2018 - 2:21pm Michigan needs to get…

Michigan needs to get psyched up now. Get tough. State is coming for you and they're going to throw everything they got at you. This is when a team shows how good they are. Its about time Michigan showed these punks what time it is.

10/14/2018 - 2:01pm You need to say positive man…

You need to say positive man. You can't drag this negative energy into next week.

10/14/2018 - 1:58pm I'm so damn psyched for this…

I'm so damn psyched for this game. Every game this year, every Saturday, I said to myself 'goddamn I wish today was the State game'. THank god its the noon/early game and we won't have to wait all day for it.

10/14/2018 - 1:53pm Seriously, ND might be the…

Seriously, ND might be the weakest undefeated team in the country. They've beaten Stanford (who is slipping) and Virginia Tech (who seems overrated) but seriously struggled against Pitt, Vanderbilt and Ball State. 

Michigan played like flaming garbage in that game and were still in position to tie/win. Bet Michigan would love to play them now. 

10/14/2018 - 12:37pm Yes - Michigan outplayed…

Yes - Michigan outplayed Wisconsin but it wasn't a totally dominant performance (until the end at least). It was nice they got the benefit of the weird long snapper call that extended a drive.  They also lucked out that Shea's fumble was recovered by McKeown and Hidgon's fumble went out of bounds.  For once those bounces went Michigan's way. Otherwise this was close to the most perfect game Michigan has played this year. 

10/14/2018 - 12:18am BEAT THE F*** OUT OF STATE…

10/13/2018 - 11:56pm I think Penn State is a team…

I think Penn State is a team entirely fueled by hype. If they're feeling themselves they are incredibly tough to beat. But, if they don't have much to play for, they're weak. This week I was on here arguing how important the mental game is and how important it is for Michigan to get in the right state of mind. But no one rides momentum and confidence better than Penn St.

After Michigan stomped them two years ago, they went on a TEAR that continued into last year. But since they blew that game against Ohio St. a few weeks ago they've come back down to earth. I hope Michigan crushes them.

10/13/2018 - 11:45pm After State took a major…

After State took a major risk and faked a FG that would have tied it. But Penn State got the ball back with a little over 5 minutes left with a 3 point lead and the momentum.  Franklin called three pass plays in a row (I'm fairly certain one was complete and then the receiver stepped out of bounds). They then punted the ball back to State and had only run a minute off the clock. State ultimatley punted on that drive (and Penn State gave it away again) but I still thought it was extraordinarily stupid that Penn State was in such a hurry to give the ball back to State each time.

Dantonio is a good coach but in this game Franklin helped him out big time. I'm actually looking forward to the Penn State game now.

DEAR MICHIGAN, PLEASE BEAT THE EVER LIVING FUCK OUT STATE NEXT WEEK. SINCERELY, THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE.

PS: you should rename this thread Michigan State beats Penn State to win the Sexual Assault and Institutional Cover Up Bowl. 

10/09/2018 - 11:52am Damn, stay up, brother. …

Damn, stay up, brother.  Stay tough man. I'll say some prayers for ya.

10/09/2018 - 9:56am No it doesn't. You simply…

No it doesn't. You simply cannot win without confidence. If you don't want to win, you won't. If you don't think you can win, you won't. It's that simple.

The best team doesn't always win, that's why they play the games. Otherwise there's no point. How many times do we see massive upsets and in the post-game interviews the underdogs say "no one said we could do it, but we believed in ourselves", etc. etc.? 

Inferior teams beat superior teams every week. It's not about simply believing you will win - that's not enough, of course. But, you can't win if you're not in the right mental state. 

10/08/2018 - 4:44pm You hit the nail on the head…

You hit the nail on the head, dude. Attitude is the biggest issue with this team. If they can get up for these games and play with a mean-ass attitude they will be truly tough to beat. 

Michigan State and Ohio State are  totally in their heads and they have to shake that. I want to see them stomp State and maybe run it up a little to show those punks what time it is. And that will get the monkey off their back for Ohio State. 

THis team STUNK last year and were still in position to win the State, Wisconsin and Ohio State games. And they looked like they were all working a job they hated. Think what they can do with a good QB and improved line and recievers? And with some added fire?

If this team can get in the right frame of mind, everyone better look the fuck out. 

10/06/2018 - 10:37am I hope they don't - I…

I hope they don't - I watched it all day like a hawk yesterday. Unless something truly unexpected happens, that's all she wrote and there won't be much of anything to break away to (aside from the continued dismantling of our democracy, which I'd rather not watch anyway). I also don't want a flashback to the '94 FInals when I was trying to watch the Knicks but NBC kept breaking away to the OJ chase - bad news I didn't want to watch. I finally got a TV (just moved) and I'm ready to get in some good watchin' today (man I miss the Miami-FSU games of old).

GO BLUE!!!

(we don't live in a democracy anymore, so might as well watch football. Vote in November, though. Make sure to do that).

10/04/2018 - 1:48pm Is there a cure for cliche,…

Is there a cure for cliche, old-fashioned racism? 

Don't get me wrong - there very well could be a conspiracy against Michigan out there. And I'm willing to entertain most conspiracies if they have even the slightest bit of substance but this doesn't. This is basically, 'some refs have Italian last names' + 'some mobsters are Italian'. It's lazy and stupid. 

10/04/2018 - 1:26pm BEacsue they have ITalian…

BEacsue they have ITalian last names they might be connected to the mob? Come on, dude., this is racist. Italian names are incredibly common in the U.S. And if its out of proportion to the number of players with Italian last names maybe it could be that the most of the players are black? This is bad.

10/04/2018 - 1:26pm BEacsue they have ITalian…

(doubled).

10/02/2018 - 12:28pm Me too, although I've been…

Me too, although I've been getting frustrated recently because they still look sluggish and unorganized and undisciplined. But,generally I always try to stay positive. You have to stay positive if you want to survive. If you go into any game thinking you're going to lose, guess what?- you're going to lose. 

Michigan needs to get out of its own head and beat these MSU and OSU punks. Two years ago they outplayed Ohio St and came away with a loss thanks to some badly timed mistakes and a generational screw-job by the refs. Last year, Harbaugh may have done his best single-game coaching job yet. He had a poor team that was absolutely outmatched by the Buckeyes and they still stayed with them most of the game. He has outcoached Ohio State two years in a row but Michigan didn't have the tools (or the luck) to win. Here's hoping he does it again but with a different result. 

10/02/2018 - 11:11am Yes, I'll take losses to…

Yes, I'll take losses to every other team on the schedule if it means we beat Ohio State and Michigan State (I would also like a W over those creeps at Penn State but I'm willing to sacrifice that as well).  That's worth a trip to the ServPro First Responder Bowl.

10/02/2018 - 10:54am Can Michigan State be our…

Can Michigan State be our Super Bowl? Can Michigan get psyched up to be beat these SOBs? Please? I know a lot of people here say that other teams, and esp State get psyched up to play us because they're our rival (I was just complaining about this in the other thread) but shouldn't Michigan get psyched up to play them? I mean, they're our rival, right? If M doesn't get pumped to play rivals, who do they get pumped up to play? Nebraska? Because Scott Frost talked some shit three years ago? After his own team got blown out?

I know it seems like I'm being harsh on the team here but motivation seems to be a problem for them lately. But, if they play with a fire and an attitude like they did vs Nebraska - I think they can beat anybody.

(While we're on the topic of motivation I am also a big complainer about the basketball team as well. I'm a huge Beilein fan and defender but a lot of the time the boys look flat or like they don't mind losing. When they get it together and are focused, I love them to death).
