Penn State has two things we don’t in the last few years. A win over OSU and a B1G title. We are right there per recruiting metrics - actually better than Penn State per average composite.

Over a five year cycle, we are recruiting better than Penn State by composite average. Not by much, but we are #2 in the B1G by composite average over five years. Our problem isn’t recruiting - we could recruit slightly better but then we’d be ahead of Clemson - our problem is just not getting over the fucking hump. Beating Ohio State, B1G Championship, CFP berth, etc. We are right there. Because Michigan offered the #439 ranked player in the country isn’t why we lose.

I know there is a current joke about emailing the AD/coaches, but I’m going to send an email about hockey broadcasting to the AD. If what you say is true about Minnesota hockey, then I’m truly baffled that we don’t have more televised Michigan hockey broadcasts.

Do we know if he wants the basketball team to lose a game?

Since 2010 this is the number of top 250 recruits per year compared to Ohio State.  Blue is U-M, red is OSU.  Source of data is 24/7 composite.



U-M has averaged 8.4 top 250 players per year versus OSU averaging 13.2.  In the Harbaugh era, it is 9.0 per year versus 14.0.

Dear Tom Brady,

I would like for you to get SB #6. 

Thank you,

It was maybe premature to lock the thread. I emailed Seth after the second post came up. There was also some Twitter buzz about the same time.  I locked the thread this morning because the article was released in the wee hours of the night and I was being precautionary.

There are 4 offensive assistants that have left Alabama so far.  When Enos was asked about whether he would be stepping up to OC prior to the Orange Bowl, he replied that they hadn't discussed it.  Saban said the same thing.  Saban then said they were going to review the staff after the game was over.  FWIW, Saban had to replace 6 assistants last year.  This is pretty common for Alabama.

I heard an Alabama fan emailed Saban his concerns.  I would expect that this gets fixed shortly.

The SB Nation site for Boston College was NOT happy that he was being interviewed here.  This is a good hire.  Per Sam's article -

When it comes to recruiting, Campanile is a major presence in the Garden State. He hails from a family that is considered football royalty in North Jersey where his father is a coaching legend and several other family members have also been standouts as players and or coaches. That rich lineage and his own on-field and sideline accomplishments allow his to walk in virtually any door in his home state and be known. That worked to Boston College's advantage. Now it will work to Michigan's.

FWIW, I kept your post up from last night because of your detail. There was a duplicate of the same subject, but it basically had one sentence of content. If you had posted this (OSU losing) with more detail I would have done the same and dropped the one/two sentence post. Now that being said, I’m not the only mod and I’m not always on. I do appreciate your detail though. I have read comments here from others that do as well.

Dear Jim,

Please recruit harder, we have noticed Nick Saban recruits really hard.  Also did you see Tarik Black liked a tweet? Lastly, if possible I’d like a cotton candy making session with the punters at the spring game. 



01/09/2019 - 8:48pm And Harbaugh doesn’t tweet…

And Harbaugh doesn’t tweet much. He could still do camps. I really don’t know why you’re upset. If he does a carnival and we lose to OSU again, none of it matters. Are people going to cheer extra really hard and make us win the game cause they got to do a potato sack race in Michigan Stadium in the spring?

01/09/2019 - 8:36pm Yup. People literally called…

Yup. People literally called for Harbaugh to stop with the antics - camps, trips, signing of the stars, Twitter, etc. So he did all that and we still lost games. Now we are supposed to cry for him to have a selfie day and turn the spring game into a carnival?

Subject of the offense has been discussed a whole bunch. Probably not enough substance here to retread the whole discussion again.

So I had my own fun.  I looked up 2013 and 2018 Michigan - both teams that went to the final.  Looking at record for B1G only for those two teams was pretty similar.


12-6 overall

8-1 home

4-5 away



13-5 overall

8-1 home

5-4 away


So then looking at the remaining B1G games in 2019, we are favored in every one except one - at MSU.  The four most difficult games left for Michigan are @Wisconsin -2.1, @Maryland -3.0, @MSU +3.8, and H MSU -4.0.  Torvik projects 27-4 for us now, and those seem like the most likely candidates. That would leave it looking like this -


16-4 overall

9-1 home

7-3 away

KenPom has them as #4 overall and essentially a bizarro version of #5 Michigan.  They have the #3 offense and #17 defense.  Michigan has the #20 offense and #4 defense.

“This will be my first year going into next season with the same offense and same scheme and everything,” Patterson said. “I’m definitely excited about that, because I’ll know it. I’ll know it like the back of my hand."

We have the people in place on offense that we should be passing for more than 200 yards a game. I hope this changes next year.

This is a place for discourse. When done correctly people don’t need to be told what they should think. I think that’s where you might be a tad confused. The fact that you stated “what they need to hear” makes me think you might just be trolling.

A review of your account proved to reveal many tirades and swearing - very little content or value could be found.  I would suggest that you read the FAQ before returning to posting here.  Have a great day!
