Chick is also a UofMD grad, so he's more plugged in that other local columnists.

08/16/2018 - 1:34pm She was awarded an honorary…

She was awarded an honorary degree from UM in 1987.  Here's to a true Michigan Woman.

08/15/2018 - 7:34pm They return Ward, Winston…

They return Ward, Winston and Langford.  A solid veteran backcourt can be gold in college hoops. 

But if the freshmen can't contribute much offense, they'll flirt with the bubble.

08/15/2018 - 7:31pm Who cares? Just win the game…

Who cares? Just win the game and don't lose with excuses about weather or targeting penalty ejections.

08/13/2018 - 1:53pm Does that mean we'd have to…

Does that mean we'd have to forfeit our Outback Bowl loss?

08/13/2018 - 9:29am I thought his hamstrings…

I thought his hamstrings never gave him a chance.

08/13/2018 - 6:41am Gameday was there.  Corso…

Gameday was there.  Corso said it was a better game than ND/FSU the previous year.  I agreed with that hot take.

08/10/2018 - 10:13am I can also confirm that…

I can also confirm that PSVue does carry local channels in Detroit and many other metropolitan areas.  

Comcast sucks and I wish I had an alternative for Internet outside of Uverse.  

08/10/2018 - 8:31am OSU/PSU was a 3:30 kickoff…

OSU/PSU was a 3:30 kickoff last year.  Wouldn't surprise me if that's at 3:30/4:30 and we're at 7PM on BTN.

Also, FSU @ Louisville is the same day.  It wouldn't surprise me if ABC put that in prime time.

08/10/2018 - 12:38am JOK was decent against PSU. …

JOK was decent against PSU.  His only turnover came at the worst time, down 28-13 in the 4th quarter, but he was sacked 7 times and constantly under pressure.  He didn't get much help from his running game either.

I hope all the hype around the OL is legit.  If we want to beat good teams, our OL has to be a strength.

Anyone who is surprised without the /s must have forgotten Izzo's littering house guest.

Unless Urban doesn't have the authority to hire or fire his own staff, he did not follow basic human protocol of firing a wife beater.

08/08/2018 - 10:35am Unless Urban doesn't have…

So this means Gene Smith takes a permanent vacation?

08/07/2018 - 11:29pm I think we'd burn his…

I think we'd burn his redshirt if he plays after Game #4, but I'll take Dylan throwing bombs up 40 on MSU.

08/07/2018 - 11:27pm Must be an inside joke.

Must be an inside joke.

08/07/2018 - 11:27pm Must be an inside joke.

You had to be there.

08/07/2018 - 11:26pm Chuck Long - Thew a TD on…

Chuck Long - Thew a TD on his first NFL pass and it was downhill from there.

08/07/2018 - 9:41pm Not the "ND Preview Show"

Not the "ND Preview Show"

Yes, I know this will make no sense once the mods nuke that thread.

08/07/2018 - 5:25pm Thanks to the new redshirt…

Thanks to the new redshirt rule, I really wish we had a couple cupcakes on the schedule.  I'd like to see Milton get in a blowout just to throw one bomb.  Here's to hoping WMU and SMU are 40 point games in the second half.

08/07/2018 - 3:50pm I just knew this was an OSU…

I just knew this was an OSU-related post.  I think I'm at "check the site every few hours" stage.  F5 stage for me is game week.

08/07/2018 - 12:25pm I was living in DC, which…

I was living in DC, which was spared, but spent a lot of time on the phone that first day with my dad.  After living through 9/11 in DC, and watching the plane that hit the Pentagon moments before impact, I was relieved to hear it was a power grid issue.

 

08/07/2018 - 10:10am He's probably talking about…

He's probably talking about Izzo and Dantonio, though I'm baffled that Engler is still there.

08/06/2018 - 3:12pm We didn't jump the shark…

We didn't jump the shark with the Izzo/Dantonio stuff? 

I still can't believe Izzo AND Dantonio retired in the hours after the ESPN report.

08/05/2018 - 10:51am So he went from "Who?" to …

So he went from "Who?" to "the next Ben Simmons" in 24 hours.  Impressive.

08/04/2018 - 11:48am I guess if I had to choose a…

I guess if I had to choose a scandal, I'll take a pay-for-play scheme over people's lives being changed permanently for the worse.

As far as the NCAA is concerned, outside of PSU, we'll pay a steeper penalty than MSU or OSU...even UNC, which shows how toothless the NCAA really is.

But hey, I'm sure Grambling or Alabama A&M will get the death penalty for throwing pizza parties in the dorms for their athletes.

08/03/2018 - 1:34pm Whether Urban is suspended…

Whether Urban is suspended for the non-conference season (which I expect considering those are three very winnable games) or fired, OSU has to protect themselves legally. 

Pitino wasn't fired immediately at Louisville in part due to state law or some other statute.  So he was on "administrative leave" though he was not keeping his job.  Same thing may be happening here.

08/03/2018 - 1:31pm Does Brad Hawkins move back…

Does Brad Hawkins move back to WR?  I haven't paid much attention to roster attrition so I'm assuming he's still on the roster.

08/03/2018 - 11:40am I'm more annoyed by another…

I'm more annoyed by another FREEP article playing up how much MSU feeds off being disrespected.  And one of their references is the coaches poll that has MSU ranked higher than us.

08/02/2018 - 1:41pm Apparently because he can…

Apparently because he can bring the program down with him.

08/02/2018 - 10:36am I believe there is bi-tri…

I believe there is bi-tri-quad-partisan disgust for that guy.

08/01/2018 - 4:36pm Heard the interview in the…

Heard the interview in the car.  I believe the worse stuff he's referring to is the domestic abuse.  May not have anything to do with OSU or Urban.

Also, I don't know if it was the same interview or not, but someone definitely said that Smith told his ex-wife that he couldn't be fired because he'd take "all of them" down with him.  That could explain why he wasn't fired before. 

08/01/2018 - 4:33pm Both Cincy and BGSU have…

Both Cincy and BGSU have sent guys to the NFL.  These two just may continue the trend.  I wish both of them luck.

08/01/2018 - 2:39pm Random guy and now reddit…

Random guy and now reddit poster saying he gone.  Normally I'd call BS, but this story broke on Facebook, so why not?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

08/01/2018 - 2:13pm MSU?  Yes it's beat UM at…

MSU?  Yes it's beat UM at all costs. 

OSU?  I think they have gotten so accustomed to beating us that their "win at all costs" mantra is for national championships.  

Also, don't forget PSU got this whole thing started.  B1G East is turning into the "best" division for football and sexual assaults.

08/01/2018 - 2:09pm They recruited fine before…

They recruited fine before Urban and will continue to do so.  Anyone getting excited for that possibility should probably settle down.

08/01/2018 - 1:57pm Desmond's PR return is G.O.A…

Desmond's PR return is G.O.A.T.  His Heisman pose was on a CFB game for goodness sake.  It is the one play in Michigan history that will forever be part of the highlight reels.

08/01/2018 - 1:54pm That sounds like 11W people…

That sounds like 11W people trying to blame Michigan for this.  "Can't beat them legit, so get the HC fired."

Problem is, unless Warinner has a good excuse for why he didn't say anything sooner, he comes out looking as bad as Urban.

08/01/2018 - 1:51pm PSU was the compromise…

PSU was the compromise school, right?  I have a hunch that if anything, this helps their recruitment of Harrison more than us.

08/01/2018 - 1:38pm McMurphy no longer works at…

McMurphy no longer works at ESPN.  I doubt they're going to feature a story from a guy they fired.  They'll wait until one of their CFB reporters has a story and they'll run with that and flood the airwaves with Herbstreit (LOL) and other CFB analysts to break it down.

08/01/2018 - 1:33pm Give it time.  Brett…

Give it time.  Brett McMurphy no longer works at ESPN, so they'll probably get one of "their" reporters to follow up with a story.

Oh, LOL @ ESPN for firing this guy.  Smart move guys. 

08/01/2018 - 10:21am I can get with #3 from a…

I can get with #3 from a recruiting standpoint.  Winning that game, and likely the conference, would have led to a recruiting boon.  It would have validated all the Harbaugh hype.  

Until we beat OSU, we will not reach our full potential on the recruiting trail.  

08/01/2018 - 10:17am In general, I agree that…

In general, I agree that recruiting battles against Bama are worse than dong punches.

But I thought we lost out on Dee Hart because RichRod got fired.  We got in late on Najee, so it's no surprise he went to Alabama.

 

07/31/2018 - 9:52pm Yes

Yes

07/31/2018 - 11:57am Yay that and also because my…

Yay that and also because my wife will also be sleeping.

07/31/2018 - 7:34am The real Dennis Fithian is a…

The real Dennis Fithian is a Michigan fan, has been for over 20 years.  So this account would have to be an impostor.

07/30/2018 - 2:16am So OSU has been beating us…

So OSU has been beating us with non-5 star RBs? No, that does not make me feel better.

07/30/2018 - 2:15am The Giants still might draft…

The Giants still might draft him.

07/29/2018 - 2:13pm SSX

SSX

I bought a PS2 in 2000 just to play that game.

07/27/2018 - 11:25am I think this is more of a…

I think this is more of a BoT issue. 

Speaking of the coaches, if Dantonio didn't get put on the hot seat for Auston Robertson, nothing will.

And considering our passing game last year...

07/22/2018 - 12:07pm If passing TD's count,…

If passing TD's count, Russell Wilson accomplished that feat.  I don't know about rush/rec TDs.
