Why do they keep running in the red zone like this?!?

Kick ball - should have been a penalty.  BUT without that kick the ref was still fumbling the ball with two seconds left. There’s no way we get the hike off unless Spartan Bob is the clock manager.  THATS on Harbuagh - he got too cute trying to send a message (three runs with no time outs??).  That’s terrible clock management.

First time since Maryland 7-3 in 1Q. We saw how that turned out. Everyone chill.

Is this our first time trailing since the NW game?

I’ll eat a lemon if Ohio state sues.  

10/24/2018 - 2:22pm I hear these stories about…

I hear these stories about college basketball players like Stu going overseas and wonder - who are these fans paying money to watch mid-tier American college basketball players, the majority of whom they've probably never heard of?  How is this a profitable enterprise?  What is does a player like Stu earn - a sack of potatoes?   

It's an awesome gig - no doubt I would love to do it - but I just don't understand how it's sustainable. 

10/23/2018 - 11:26am Why are people so convinced…

Why are people so convinced Brohm is leaving?  If he can get Purdue up and running that is a cushy gig - the only real competition (currently) is Wisconsin. It's not like the Big West is a gauntlet.  

He's in the Big10, playing for a school that could make him a God, with some history of success (Tiller, Brees, etc).  It's not like he's in the MAC.

10/21/2018 - 12:01am Big east widdde open, too.

Big10 west is widdde open, too.

Wtf deal did Dantonio make with the devil.  Luckiest coach in college football.

Yep. Dantonio voodoo.  Knew that was coming.  Stupid stupid harbaugh

10/20/2018 - 3:27pm Fuck.  That’s on you harbaugh

Fuck.  That’s on you harbaugh

Looks like this is their stupid drive

10/20/2018 - 3:15pm We’re due for one stupid MSU…

We’re due for one stupid MSU drive - caused either by defense brain farts Or dantonio voodoo. But there’s no way MSU scores more than 10 points.  One more TD more or less seals this game.

10/20/2018 - 3:03pm You can tell the game plan…

You can tell the game plan was conservative- don’t make a mistake and don’t put the defense in a bad position.  Well, it’s working - were up 7.  But they HAVE to open it more in second half. 

10/20/2018 - 2:54pm Garbage half by the offense…

Garbage half by the offense for sure.  The good news is we’ve done better in 2nd half every game....

10/20/2018 - 2:41pm Good thing they get the ball…

Good thing they get the ball to start the half too

I hate receiving the ball to start the game. Why not get your D out there?

It also includes a picture of the author, which is just as much a gem.

Hard to believe urban could come across any scummier after this summer, but alas he does.

Revenge for the 30 straight runs against rich rod

I bet she really loves that 3 incher

10/13/2018 - 10:27pm If I’m Wisconsin I’m pissed…

If I’m Wisconsin I’m pissed. This is one of the worst coaching jobs from an opponent I’ve seen in a long time. No response, no urgency, punting down this much, punting in Michigan territory...

10/13/2018 - 9:25pm Where the fuck is Mason…

Where the fuck is Mason tonight 

10/13/2018 - 9:17pm This is a game I won’t be…

This is a game I won’t be complaining about extra commercial breaks. Anything to give our DLine a break.

10/08/2018 - 7:50pm The cynic in me thinks this…

The cynic in me thinks this is all bull shit for him to get sympathy from the media and paper over some of his “misdeeds” from the summer. Also to lend credence to the OSU internal report that he sometimes “forgets things.”  

09/15/2018 - 10:59pm Hebie- what a garbage…

Hebie- what a garbage announcer. Slurping all over OSU

09/05/2018 - 5:25pm Ha. Here we go again!  I…

Ha. Here we go again!  I feel Brian's pain. 

 

Remember every coach that was on the hot seat that eventually got fired?  Sometimes all the time in the world doesn't matter.

 

(To clarify, that doesn't mean he should be fired.  But come on - this is a dumb take).

09/02/2018 - 1:28am What’s the difference…

What’s the difference between watching this game and watching the team from Hokes last year? Did anyone actually expect us to tie at the end?  With this offense, shit is preordained.

09/01/2018 - 10:58pm Lol. Can’t tell if sarcastic…

Lol. Can’t tell if sarcastic bc this is the Michigan’s fan mentality these days. “If the whole game didn’t play out the way it did we could have won...”

09/01/2018 - 10:48pm STOP HUDDLING

STOP HUDDLING

09/01/2018 - 10:44pm This isn’t just the OL -…

This isn’t just the OL - this is the whole offensive scheme starting from Harbaugh on down.  MSU did much better than us last year w sack of potatoes on the line.  Our offense is too cute.

Is it basketball season yet?

08/23/2018 - 3:44pm Assuming nothing else comes…

Assuming nothing else comes out, this will all be forgotten in a month when he starts winning again, and will be nothing more than a footnote should he ever win a national championship.

08/22/2018 - 2:45pm Is it me - or does it feel…

Is it me - or does it feel like the longer this goes the more of a chance he's getting fired?

07/10/2018 - 1:06pm I contend moving the ball…

I contend moving the ball anywhere after a yellow would hinder the game.  Right now, those tactical fouls are done to avoid counter attacks - its the only option to regroup should you be caught upfield.  If you disincentivize fouling you're forcing a team to keep more players back and in turn making the game more conservative.  You're also encouraging more flopping and diving to draw more yellows. 

One way to get rid of flopping is to actually treat "injured" players like they're injured.  If you're rolling around longer than say, a minute, where the play is impeded then you should have to go off the field for a set amount of time -say, five minutes - before you're allowed back on.  That way, players make think twice to fake an injury in stoppage time of a one-goal game.

05/16/2018 - 8:02pm eek

brian has more hottakes than steven a smith - well, at least the same amount - and the times i listen to WTKA or his podcast can be painful. 

i wish ace would stand up for himself more often.  i think his takes are more reasonable than brians, but he often backs down when challenged.

05/16/2018 - 7:57pm my "unpopular" opinion

people who hate on lloyd are idiots - especially because he gave us our only national championship in 50+ years.

03/31/2018 - 7:03pm These

Refs are fucking garbage.

The good news is we could not have played a worse half. The bad news is we may not play any better next half.

03/31/2018 - 6:51pm What

Are these refs calling??

02/21/2018 - 2:49pm I would die on this hill

I was at the OSU game this year - and have been for many of the previous years - and all I can think about is Michigan fans would NEVER have the same reception that OSU fans get at the Big House.  We're too nice.  Teams know it. Fans know it.  And it doesn't create a hostile away atmosphere. 

I am in no way advocating violence - but there has to be some middle ground between high fives and hugs with away fans and English soccer stadium hooligans, right?  

02/13/2018 - 4:29pm Price...and also schedule

I'll fork over a couple hundred bucks for one marquee game a year, but why would I drop a grand or more for season tickets to watch blowouts against Cinncinati, Air Force, Rutgers, or Maryland? 

Expansion has killed attedance.  Every year you have a couple MAC cupcakes but now you get a couple garbage B1G teams - there's no sense going to those games when its over by the 3rd quarter and half the stadium empties out.

Next year's home schedule is:

WMU

SMU

Nebraska

Maryland

Wisconsin

PSU

Indiana

That's possibly three but likely only two ranked teams and no rivals.  If Michigan's attendance was down this year, it will be even lower next...

I imagine it's the same across the country. College football is turning into the NFL - no one cares about Browns versus Titans because there's no history there.   What is the draw for Nebraska to play Purdue every year?  Or West Virginia against Kansas State?  You can go on down the line...I like my team but couldn't care less who they play about 75% of the time.  

EDIT: I just went through the schedule when my brother attended UM from 1996-1999.  During those four seasons (96, 96, 98, 99) they played ONE MAC team, Hawaii, and Rice.  Those are the only games against mid-major (or less) competition - three over four years.  

02/10/2018 - 11:23pm Meh

Oh good let’s add another cook in the kitchen.

02/08/2018 - 10:02pm Hate to break it to ya

But if playing or coaching college football is your only criteria for knowledge of the sport than you might as well stop reading mgoblog....

01/09/2018 - 12:25am Kinda

Wild nick saban in a national championship game pulled a starting qb with a 25-2 record for a freshman who barely played and yet we kept JOK in for the entire MSU game...
