11/10/2018 - 12:17pm I'd rather see Christian…

I'd rather see Christian Turner and Tru Wilson each crack 100 today.  Karan has been doing WORK for us this year and needs a few light weeks before the GAME.

 

10/28/2018 - 2:31am I would recommend sampling…

I would recommend sampling the audio prior to downloading.  If your ears don't like the reader's voice it can ruin a good story.

10/22/2018 - 9:59pm I hope the defense carries…

I hope the defense carries Don Brown off the field on their shoulders after the shutout

10/22/2018 - 8:11pm Wow.  That was the first Bob…

Wow.  That was the first Bob Ufer sound bite I 've ever heard.  Surely they're not ALL as bad ass as that...

 

Now I'm going to have to stay up all night educating myself on all things Ufer.

10/20/2018 - 9:33pm Yeah, loved that drive with…

Yeah, loved that drive with Lombardi...

47-yard drive.  54 of those yards via penalty.

 

And that was their best drive all game :)

10/06/2018 - 9:30am Brian's Fear Level is 6.

I…

Brian's Fear Level is 6.

I think that is too low.

My fear level is up in the 6.5 range.

Then again, I eat a lot of chicken.

 

This one will give us another scare and be "closer than the experts think"

09/03/2018 - 2:26pm You win. Okay?  I give up.

You win. Okay?  I give up.

Michigan is going to rebound and win all of their games because several other teams have done it in the Big Ten recently.

I'm hoping your impenetrable logic holds true.  It would seriously make me very happy.

09/03/2018 - 1:50pm Yes, read the post and…

Yes, read the post and comprehend...

That the OP is going to angrily smite or subtly belittle anyone who tries to offer a counter argument.

09/03/2018 - 1:30pm Your entire thread is based…

Your entire thread is based off what OTHER teams did.

I'm pointing out what MICHIGAN has done in it's meaningful games under JH.

Which do you think is the more realistic indicator for our season, and which seems more idiotic? 

09/03/2018 - 12:49pm Not sarcasm.  I assumed…

Not sarcasm.  I assumed someone growing up playing football in the crazy heat/humidity of Florida would build up a certain immunity to playing in those conditions-- like training for marathon.  Are you saying this is preposterous?  It certainly could be.

I'm just connecting the dots I see--

I've never seen Devin Bush cramp up before.  The new S&C bulks everybody up with tons of muscle. Bush cramps up. Maybe 240 lbs isn't his ideal playing weight.

I'm sure he will still be stellar.  But I'm in the camp that believes MUSCLIER isn't always better.

09/03/2018 - 12:16pm So do you think our season…

So do you think our season will still be a success, or that OSU is the superior team to us?  Please explain for the idiots like me.

 

And do it in that angry, sarcastic voice again.

09/03/2018 - 11:42am I'm playing pessimist in…

I'm playing pessimist in this thread, but I hope to God you're right, bd. 

09/03/2018 - 11:32am Yes, I would think a Jim…

Yes, I would think a Jim Harbaugh team in years 3 and 4 would be close to the same level as an Urban Meyer team.  I think most of us have been expecting/waiting for that.

 

Also, YOU'RE the one who initially compared us to OSU(several times) in the OP, Mr. ALL CAPS

09/03/2018 - 11:23am Seriously.  All the talk of…

Seriously.  All the talk of our S&C coach-- then our All-american linebacker, who's from Florida, cramps up in 77 degree weather.

09/03/2018 - 11:16am So our biggest rival is not…

So our biggest rival is not an adequate measuring stick??

 

Personally, I want to be better than them in every way.

09/03/2018 - 11:12am Well, it we want to go back…

Well, if we want to go back further, we can.  But aside from beating a poor MSU team and Penn State at home, it's still a bunch of fluff.

 

If we looked at JH's entire tenure and scratched the cupcake wins, our record would look uglier than 9-9.  It is so frustrating...

09/03/2018 - 10:59am Yes, I chopped the Win-Loss…

Yes, I chopped the Win-Loss record to help my argument.   But that doesn't change the fact that in the last 18 games we've lost the 9 most meaningful games.  Our only "good" win coming vs Florida.

 

Why does anyone who points out bad things about our team automatically called a troll?

 

Of course I want us to win out.  But people are saying it was a CLOSE loss to a GOOD team on the ROAD, and brushing it off as if there aren't two more of those staring us in the face.

09/03/2018 - 10:45am THIS team and THIS coaching…

THIS team and THIS coaching staff is basically the same as last year (JH calling plays on offense, with input.  DB on defense).  Add in Shea.

 

The OP is comparing us to several OSU teams.

09/03/2018 - 10:38am Like we are the ONLY team…

Like we are the ONLY team that is going to benefit from a few easy weeks to let us "gel"...

09/03/2018 - 10:33am It's not after one game. …

It's not after one game.  Look at the last 18 games.  Take off your MgoBlinders...

09/03/2018 - 10:30am Are you choosing to ignore…

Are you choosing to ignore the fact that we are 9-9 in our last 18 games!?  Including 4 straight losses.

 

9-9

 

OSU is 73-8 under Urban Meyer.

 

Wake up.  We're going to string together a few wins vs crappy teams, but there's no way we win ALL 4 of the difficult games remaining on our schedule.

09/02/2018 - 11:53pm So i guess everyone is going…

So i guess everyone is going to write up a recap...

09/02/2018 - 10:03pm FWI, Shea's 227 yards…

FWI, Shea's 227 yards passing would've been our the second highest total last year(somehow O'korn threw for 270 yd's vs Purdue).  And versus a top 10 defense like ND, I think that bodes well for us.

I seriously think Shea could set some yardage records for us this year.  Here's hoping the Win-Loss column will look just as sexy.  Otherwise we get to watch Padd Statford on Saturdays AND Sundays this year.

09/01/2018 - 3:05pm Raj is a keeper haha

Wow.

Raj is a keeper haha

Wow.

This was closer to a Roast than a description of a universe where Michigan DESTROYS the Irish.  And it was deeply enjoyable.  Look out, Future Opponents.

08/27/2018 - 9:10pm I just want a Big Donkey to…

I just want a Big Donkey to ram at 'em.

And then ram at 'em again.

All defenses will succumb to the Big Donkey and all the ramming.

Problem is-- I just don't see a Big Donkey on this roster.  Maybe the catchy/blocky preview will leave me feeling more satisfied.

05/08/2018 - 9:51pm Ouch

Come on, Bloops. You're better than this.

I read nothing that would indicate his stock would rise. He went to two camps and he felt like he performed well.

Wow. No name guy from a tiny school. Trade the f down next time.

04/27/2018 - 10:01pm Kevin Smith 2.0

This reminds me EXACTLY of when the Lions drafted RB Kevin Smith out of Central Florida a few years ago. They even traded up to take Smith.

Exact same size, 6' 215. Considered a "workhorse" type runner, despite being relatively thin for an RB. At least Kevin ran below a 4.5 40-time. Kerryon didn't make an attempt.

I am not a fan of this pick. Prior to the trade, the Lions had the fewest picks in the draft. Now they have two fewer than the next lowest team. Also, Kerryon is underwhelming compared to the other backs that have gone in this range the last two years. Ugh...

04/16/2018 - 9:15pm What's Harbaugh's track

What's Harbaugh's track record at Michigan for finding gems on the o-line? I'm still waiting for one of these "under the radar" types to earn a starting spot on the o-line. Entering year four we have TWO linemen we are confident with and both were top 100 recruits.

That being said, welcome aboard, Jack! Instead of 'pancakes we can call them 'flapjacks'

I'm putting in my Crystal Ball: Georgia.

Tough to pull elite talent from that state. We've seen this scenario too often. Second place in a hat ceremony means nothing. Other negative sentences.

04/07/2018 - 7:20pm Seriously?

Seriously?

Singleton/Anthony/Ross aren't anticipated to make a great impact because the guys in front of them-- Hudson and Bush-- blew up last year, in what was only their SECOND YEAR ON CAMPUS.

04/07/2018 - 10:24am Turnovers are mostly random.

Turnovers are mostly random. But here's hoping the injection of more speed at LB and increased depth/experience in the secondary can swing the pendulum back in our favor.

04/07/2018 - 8:38am Not to worry, friend--

Not to worry, friend-- Anthony and Singleton AND Ross have all received some praise. About a week ago Don Brown was asked about his young linebackers and his reply was a Grinch-like maniacal smile.

04/06/2018 - 9:29pm This year's defense will be

This year's defense will be better than last year's defense(seems to be a rather unanimous opinion around here). Even with last year's offense, which did NOT have a game manager at qb for the most pivotal games, we were competitive in every game except one.

Losing 2 of 3 rivalry games would be a major letdown.

04/06/2018 - 3:23pm Reader request

I'd like a hind-sight analysis of last spring-- what we wanted to hear / what we heard-- to see what translated to the fall, and what was fluff. And what that might teach us about this spring, to keep me from getting too optimistic about this team.

Doing my best to reflect...

-Khaleke Hype 2017 (Uche 2018)
-QB hierarchy: I didn't believe O'Korn was outpacing Peters until JOK came in vs. Purdue (DM ahead of BP)
-Evans Hype 2017 (Now Higdon out front)
-Bunting was supposed to be Butt 2.0, then Gentry flashed in the spring game
-O-line struggling to find best 5 (same 2018)

Anything else you guys can think of?

04/06/2018 - 3:04pm 10-2 is not the goal this

10-2 is not the goal this season. Not with this defense.

I'd say JT Barrett is the better comparison. Hopefully Michael is as unbeatable for us as JT was against us.

Not going to watch the play. As long as they got the call right in the end I don't see what the fuss is about.

01/07/2018 - 11:30am Woodson was born in the HOF

Named to the HOF?! How dare they. Woodson was born in the HOF. The HOF was created with the sole purpose of commemorating ONE of his interceptions.

HOF should change it's name to Charles Woodson and Everyone Else.
