Harbaugh, like Hoke, is married to an outdated system - the whole manball thing just looks sluggish and slow compared to a more modern offense. Look at OSU and TCU - quick, fast, get rid of the ball, etc. Michigan's offense is painfull slow and slow-developing. Plays take forever to unfold.

09/15/2018 - 8:44pm The schedule looks good only…

The schedule looks good only in a sense. Where once we were going to a face a bunch of top-ranked teams - thus allowing us to get back into contention - now we're facing a bunch of also-rans.  Beating Sparty and Wisky won't mean nearly as much, because they're now be viewed as also-rans, and rightly so.

09/15/2018 - 8:14pm The B10 is embarrassingly…

The B10 is embarrassingly lame. First the scandals. Now the universally shitty play. There’s no arguing this.

Taxes pay for a society, you ignorant tool. You’re the problem. Feel bad about it. 

09/10/2018 - 1:00pm This is what happens when…

This is what happens when both teams lay eggs early on. If they were both undefeated, the game would be at night.

I'm 40! I'm a man!

10-2. Loss to osu. 

09/04/2018 - 12:59am Oh great. Another original…

Oh great. Another original thread somewhat feels compelled to start about a subject that’s been discussed ad nauseum. 

09/02/2018 - 2:21pm Agreed about Shea! He looked…

Agreed about Shea! He looked so small - to the point that I'm shocked to see all the speculation that he's a one-and-done NFL prospect. He just doesn't look NFL-sized.

09/02/2018 - 1:16am The loss of any one player…

The loss of any one player doesn’t unhinge an entire program. Top teams have depth for this reason. That Michigan has failed to recruit and develop a crop of linemen is the problem. 

09/02/2018 - 1:03am I kept reading that Shea…

I kept reading that Shea looks like Forcier. But I still wasn’t prepared for how small he looks out there. He’s got talent. But everyone is assuming he’s one and done, yet he just doesn’t look nearly big enough to be a high NFL pick. 

09/01/2018 - 10:04pm This team is awful. We are…

This team is awful. We are painfully overrated. 

09/01/2018 - 9:56pm Harbaugh’s offense is as…

Harbaugh’s offense is as bold and daring as Bo’s. What a fucking relic. 

08/29/2018 - 8:47pm Nobody gives a shit about…

Nobody gives a shit about playing Minnesota.

This (inevitable) white-trash implosion is magnificent.

A black person who points out racism isn't a racist, you backward-ass hillbilly.

08/25/2018 - 12:10am The only bright spot here is…

The only bright spot here is that Meyer will never fully escape this cloud (outside of Columbus, that is). The scorn will follow him everywhere. And it will eat away at him - because he's been so determined to sell his bullshit holy-man values and cement his legacy. But his legacy as a mercenary asshole has already been cemented. Plus, he'll continually by dogged by more and more negative reports. He's clearly an angry, tortured dude, and he will eventually implode - just as he did at Florida. Raback it.

08/25/2018 - 12:05am Simple. If a Michigan coach…

Simple. If a Michigan coach overlooks abuse, then lies about it, then blames the media, then attempts a cover-up, then fails to apologize, you fire his ass yesterday. Period.

08/21/2018 - 12:04pm The reporter's job isn't to …

The reporter's job isn't to "mess with their heads." It's to report news when it's ready.

08/20/2018 - 11:14am And The B10 deserves it.It’s…

And The B10 deserves it.It’s a national embarrassment right now. PSU. MSU. OSU. MD.   

08/19/2018 - 5:18pm I’m not sure franklin is…

I’m not sure franklin is great. But remember he started with a meh roster, then built it up. His record improved accordingly. 

08/16/2018 - 10:07pm I'm surprised nobody…

I'm surprised nobody commented on the fact that the post places Milton ahead of McCaffrey on the depth chart. The conventional wisdom seemed to place McCaffrey at #2. 

08/16/2018 - 12:10pm This may be the single most…

This may be the single most ridiculous comment I've seen in a while.

This man oversaw a program that killed their son.

They deserve all the say in the world.

08/14/2018 - 4:31pm Given that the school has…

Given that the school has owned the situation, and given that the training staff was summarily canned, I see no scenario in which Durkin is retained. A player died. Through negligence. No way the school wants Durkin around as a symbol of its tragedy.

08/14/2018 - 3:13pm It's inane paranoia like…

It's inane paranoia like your that explains so much.

08/14/2018 - 12:34pm If he's canned due to a…

If he's canned due to a player's death, he won't land a job above "Last Chance U" level. Guy'll be called D.J. Merkin in prison.

08/13/2018 - 5:19pm Hmm. Sounds familiar. Can't…

Hmm. Sounds familiar. Can't figure out why.

08/12/2018 - 12:12pm I’d call us a slight…

I’d call us a slight favorite. Zero chance we win by 21+. That’s just absurd homerism. 

08/11/2018 - 11:29am This article was about the…

This article was about the death. We posted larger scale follow up articles about the program in general. No idea why they were nuked. Mods weren’t paying attention. 

08/10/2018 - 5:57pm Another disgrace for B10…

Another disgrace for B10 football coaches. Fire them!

08/08/2018 - 2:01pm Urban Meyer has fired people…

Urban Meyer has fired people for a lot less. Zach was both a serial offender and, by all accounts, a very bad football coach. Yet he wasn't fired. Explain.

08/08/2018 - 1:39pm Love how OSU slappies…

Love how OSU slappies continually refer to Meyer's provably bald-faced lie as a 'misstep' or 'misspeaking.' He LIED - and not about something insignificant. Period.

08/07/2018 - 4:10pm And who also explicitly lied…

And who also explicitly lied at a press conference (and therefore essentially lied to the public) about an extremely serious issue. He did so in order to conceal something. In so doing, for good measure, he tried to blame the media for reporting facts. In this era, that's a god-awful look for a highly paid representative of a public university.

 

And, oh, by the way, he retained a coach he knew to be a serial abuser.

08/07/2018 - 12:52pm They are absolutely looking…

They are absolutely looking for a way to fire him. That's why you put someone on leave (because you have to go through vetting and channels). That's why Urban went off the reservation and defended himself via Twitter. If they were on the same page, they'd be on the same page. Ultimately, they may decide they can't fire him with cause. But there's no doubt they're looking that way. 

The Urban scandal, coupled with the wrestling scandal, opens OSU to way too much legal and PR exposure. The university's president/lawyers must appreciate that the football coach is very important - but nowhere near as important as the school itself. They can get another coach. They can't get another reputation.

08/06/2018 - 11:27pm The Big 10 has indeed been a…

The Big 10 has indeed been a huge embarrassment, thanks to PSU, MSU, and OSU -- all the land-granty pig-fucker schools. There's no getting around it. 

08/05/2018 - 8:07pm This OP is an asshole. 

You…

This OP is an asshole. 

You needed a whole thread beside the 16 other ones on the same topic? Without offering anything of value?

08/05/2018 - 8:06pm This OP is an asshole. 

This OP is an asshole. 

08/04/2018 - 10:15pm No, I think it's almost…

No, I think it's almost certain that OSU instructed everyone in their employ to avoid commenting except through official (and officially vetted) channels. There's simply no way they wanted him issuing a separate statement - one that throws his superior(s) under the bus. His statement made their jobs much harder. It's the sort of statement one makes in order to gain leverage in a contentious matter.

08/04/2018 - 9:33pm He's gone. This was…

He's gone. This was confirmed the moment he released a statement via his own Twitter account rather than thru OSU. He's angling against them.

08/04/2018 - 4:57pm So the Detroit media is too…

So the Detroit media is too hard on Michigan but too soft on MSU - safe to say that's your lazy and self-serving opinion? Everybody thinks the media is lazy except when it pertains to their team.

08/03/2018 - 7:35pm Here's a man with his…

Here's a man with his priorities in order. What a pack of rednecks.

08/03/2018 - 7:31pm You make a great point,…

You make a great point, Magnus. The fact that Meyer released the statement on his own, rather than via the university, suggests he's basically going rogue. He's angling against them. This won't end well for anyone there.

08/03/2018 - 5:25pm Notice how he tried to…

Notice how he tried to deflect the story by blaming the media. Then, in his statement, he admit he lied - but never apologizes for blaming the reporter and essentially accusing him of manufacturing fake news. Sound familiar?

08/03/2018 - 4:55pm Wow. Does this scumbag not…

Wow. Does this scumbag not have lawyers and representatives telling him to shut the fuck up? In true self-righteous hypocrite fashion, he's claiming he knew about the abuse all along but kept employing a serial abuser, then lied to (and blamed) the media to cover up his complicity, and now feels like he's a victim? He's also basically saying he told OSU and the program did nothing about Zach Smith. What a fucking shit-show.

08/02/2018 - 12:39pm Earle Bruce is Meyer's…

Earle Bruce is Meyer's friend and mentor.

08/01/2018 - 10:37pm Wetzel would be remiss to…

Wetzel would be remiss to NOT mention Trump, since Trump has taught animals like Boren to simply blame the media when confronted with bad news.

08/01/2018 - 9:32pm Pete C. escaped from USC…

Pete C. escaped from USC ahead of recruiting violations. No way a scandalized school like OSU hires another tainted coach. OSU prefers to taint coaches all by itself.

08/01/2018 - 9:27pm The passage is clear: If…

The passage is clear: If Meyer hears that a team staffer physically abuses someone, Meyer must officially report it. If he doesn't, he's in violation. What is unclear about this? It couldn't be clearer.

08/01/2018 - 1:54pm If you knew, you had an…

If you knew, you had an obligation to report it. Period. This is not a gray area.
