Particularly fishy.

Chevy Camaro: Storied past. Big name brand. Went away for a while and came back with a splash. But still just a plain ol' fuckin' Camaro that isn't as cool or fast as those that drive it think it is.

The Music City Bowl? You never want your team to be there...but if by chance they are...Nashville's quite a party.

I'd rather have Day's offense with a halfway competent defense than Riley's offense with no defense.

I view CEO Coach as one that sets strategy, does university/donor stuff, etc. and gets out of the way of execution, which is handled almost exclusively by high performing staff with a lot of autonomy.

11/30/2018 - 8:47pm How can you objectively say…

How can you objectively say Dylan is more talented? You can't just throw contrarian opinions and not back it up beyond "because he is." Are you saying high school QBR? Like, what is it that makes you think Dylan is better than Shea?

11/30/2018 - 7:52pm You're telling me those two…

You're telling me those two are more talented than Nico, Tarik and DPJ?

No, I'm not at all. You're actually the one saying a backup, in limited spot duty against second team defenses, is better than a starter that's played at an award-nominating, high level all year. 

11/30/2018 - 7:26pm I can't even follow your…

I can't even follow your argument. I'm not saying there are practice reports. I'm saying if Dylan were actually better like you say we'd have heard about it.

You have someone who is just as talented, if not more talented than Shea at a younger age. 

This. This is the problem. Dylan is NOT just as talented, if not more talented. If he were, he'd be playing. If he were, he'd be a top-2 round NFL draft pick. If he were, he'd be a finalist for major QB awards. If he were, he would've transferred before the year started so he could play, start, and be a Heisman finalist (because that's the only tier above Shea), for literally every NCAA school except for, say, five. 

But, he's not. Shea is more talented than Dylan. Full stop. Are you suggesting that Harbaugh - whose core ethos in life is meritocracy - knowingly chose to start an inferior quarterback, a position in which Harbaugh has played and coached at an incredibly high level for his entire adult life? 

THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE SAYING. It's nonsense. 

11/30/2018 - 6:42pm Sure, you're right. If they…

Sure, you're right. If they're both equal, invest in the younger talent.

But, Shea started this year over Dylan for a reason. That means they weren't both equal. There was no QB controversy. No practice reports of "Dylan is better." No player leaks calling for Dylan to start. The Tua/Jalen comparison is irrelevant. Shea was (is) better. And one more year in the program will improve both quarterbacks. 

Think about what you're saying. You want to forego another year of an older, seasoned veteran that has 13 games at Michigan under his belt running a full playbook against first team defenses, and was a finalist for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, and at least a semi-finalist for the Davey O'Brien best QB award. 

And you prefer his backup based on a data set of 15 passes against the second team defenses of Western Michigan and Nebraska. 

THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE SAYING.

At #4, even vs Alabama, the chance of winning a national championship is something non-zero. 

In the Peach Bowl the chance of winning a national championship is zero. 

Crazier things have happened. I'd take door #1, however unlikely. 10-3 with a shot at it is better than 11-2 with no shot. 

11/27/2018 - 7:38pm To be honest, with how the…

To be honest, with how the schedule looked at the beginning of the year and OL uncertainties after the ND game, finishing 2018 with:

  • 11-2 record with wins at MSU, vs Wisc, vs PSU
  • Peach Bowl win vs UF
  • Final top-5 ranking
  • 10+ wins in 3 of last 4 years

I'm not THAT mad at the state of things post-Hoke. But, still, kind of mad. Because Michigan. And irrational. 

 

11/27/2018 - 7:34pm No. You're forgetting about…

No. You're forgetting about Notre Dame. 

Best case scenario is NU blows out OSU making their two blowout losses to mediocre teams worse than UM's tight loss to ND and blowout loss to OSU. 

UGA and OU needs to get blown out in a filthy way. And UCF lose just for some breathing room.

Won't matter what happens to Clemson. They lose one and they're still in somewhere at 12-1. 

Basically we'd need to somehow be the best of the two loss teams.

We scored 39 points. It wasn't Patterson not running the ball that was the issue.

You've been here for 9 years and this is the first diary you've read? You've missed some legendary content, my friend.

Not saying I'm pro-cannibalism, but it does solve overpopulation and world hunger at the same time.

Honestly, consider a rental with out of state plates. Seriously. A friend of mine had Michigan plates and just to be safe put some OSU stickers on the car. 

His car got dented and keyed. 

Fucking heathens down there. Mouth breathing, knuckle dragging, heathens.

While I agree this would be a long term good thing for CFP...I don't want UM to be the sacrificial lamb to make it happen. 

So...Roll Tide?

Therefore it's still a good thing. Because a 0 loss bama definitely would. 

I'm flabbergasted by the number of people that are rooting for 0 loss teams to stay undefeated. 

11/16/2018 - 1:54pm Okay lets break this down…

Okay lets break this down...

"This could, of course, change, but currently, multiple sources expect Michigan to lose Patterson."

Translation:

"This could, of course, change..." = We don't know for sure

"...but currently, multiple sources..." = but as of today there are some secret people I know but I'm not saying who

"...expect Michigan to lose Patterson..." = that are thinking privately that Michigan won't have Shea next year. 

In other words, some randos not affiliated with Shea whatsoever are guessing he's not coming back. 

Don't worry everyone. This could of course change, but I personally have multiple sources that expect Michigan to have Shea available next year.

USC has to be up there. UT (doesn't matter which one). 

11/14/2018 - 10:03pm With the Nightman on the…

With the Nightman on the loose? No way. Can't even think about whoores in a time like this. 

11/13/2018 - 7:09pm This is just wrong. You…

This is just wrong. You think a 0 loss ND team with a head to head win over Michigan is better for Michigan's chances than a 1 loss ND team with a head to head win over Michigan? Assuming Bama wins:

If ND wins out, it's UM, OU competing for the #4 spot. 1 spot for 2 teams. 50%. Need to be best one of two. 

If ND loses it's UM, ND, OU competing for #3 and #4 spots. 2 spots for 3 teams. 66%. Only need to not be last of three.

Give me the ND loss every time. 

EDIT: I also want ND to lose because then they're only one loss away from eliminating themselves entirely. It's lunacy to think you don't want a 0-loss team ahead of a 12-1 conference champion (UM) to lose. 

11/13/2018 - 9:28am Surprised no one has…

Surprised no one has mentioned Minnesota yet. Not much of a rivalry, per se, and we don't exactly play them all the time...but at least that has history and trophy to it. Penn State is...ugh. I'd rather say we only have two rivals OSU/MSU than give Penn State the satisfaction of thinking they're one of them. They deserve the Illinois treatment. 

11/09/2018 - 9:28am Yeahhhh. Don't think of it…

Yeahhhh. Don't think of it as a Rutgers game. Think of it as a Michigan game in NJ. Over half of the stadium will be blue. 

If Rutgers was playing Indiana I think it would be the ol' Brandon special. Two cokes and a ticket. 

11/08/2018 - 10:17am Probably more ND football…

Probably more ND football fans in NYC than Syracuse football fans in...existence. 

11/07/2018 - 6:49pm I equate ND to be like the…

I equate ND to be like the MSU team from a few years ago that got curb stomped by Alabama. Can't justify leaving them out, but today's version of Bama, Clemson, UM, UGA, and OU would all smoke ND. 

11/07/2018 - 2:57pm Cool. It makes sense to me…

Cool. It makes sense to me that they timed site changes for a bye week. 

11/06/2018 - 7:02pm I think if Clemson loses a…

I think if Clemson loses a close one to BC they drop below a 1-loss Michigan Georgia Bama and maybe OU. But would be above a 1-loss OSU. 

I think in this scenario Bama ND and Georgia are in and UM is in with a conf. title but if OSU wins the big ten Clemson is in. OSU has an ugly, ugly loss.

10/30/2018 - 8:07pm Not sure why you're getting…

Not sure why you're getting negged. I agree with this. There are a finite number of spots: 4. An undefeated ND team is guaranteed one of them. A 1-loss ND team is not. UM would win the Big Ten and win an extra game.

IMO there's no scenario in which an 11-1 ND team is ahead of a 12-1 Big Ten Champion UM team, even with the head to head. But, every scenario would have a 12-0 ND team ahead of a 12-1 UM team. 

Root for ND to lose. And for those talking about "quality of loss" an 11-1 ND team is still a top-10 team. 

Edit: Another way to think of this is would you rather be one of three one-loss teams vying for the final spot or one of four one-loss teams vying for two spots?

10/30/2018 - 10:57am I think we'll start at #6…

I think we'll start at #6 because of the lack of quality wins compared to other one loss teams. But in the coming weeks we'll have great opportunity to easily climb above. If memory serves, the CFP rankings are fairly fluid on a week to week basis and teams aren't immune to dropping a spot even if they win that particular week.

To be fair, he asked for a Michigan bar, not a sports bar. And I'd rather it be here with a comment + a quick reply and be done with it than another thread. 

10/27/2018 - 4:38pm Personally I’d rather play …

Personally I’d rather play (and beat) a highly ranked one-loss Iowa to get some extra credit for the CFP selection considering there may be other one-loss teams with viable resumes (e.g. OU). IF Michigan wins out, beating an unranked or lowly ranked NW for the second time won’t do much for the resume.

I had someone pour a whole coke on my head at the start of the game and the stadium usher shrugged and told me "welcome to east lansing. go green." girlfriend at the time laughed and said "go white". 

granted, this was in 2007 so it's been a while. michigan won that game and my girlfriend was super salty so i figured it was as good of time as any to break up with her. I drove back to ann arbor and have never been back to east lansing since.

No, not saying there's anything wrong with it. And not saying important details weren't excluded, either. t would be a totally unsurprising and accepted thing if it weren't for Tebow having a very well defined, Christian, wholesome, personal brand.  

This article makes Tebow out to seem like he's taking an underage kid to a skimpy dressed bar and then when Meyer wanted to kick AH off the team, he acquiesced to Tebow's pleas. Made it seem like Tebow spoke out of both sides of his mouth, so to speak.  

All I'm saying is this story paints Tebow in a more negative light than Meyer, which I think is true.

After reading that article, Tebow seems to be painted in more of a negative light than Meyer.

I was at this game and the entire stadium saw the facemask and boo'd the refs incessantly. Only after it was put on the big screen and clear and blatant facemask (and the refs looked up and watched it) did they throw the flag. 

I'm convinced that if the stadium screen operator hadn't put that on the video board, it wouldn't have been called. It truly felt like a "oh shit, well now we have to call it" scenario. Not an "ah we must've missed it" scenario.

So he warned at least one team not to draft Aaron and his friend Bill drafts him? Sounds like he's sandbagging Hernandez to other teams so he'd be available when it came time for the Pats to draft. 

But maybe I'm just cynical. 

But also, Urbz.
