Agree- there is nothing else like it that I have seen on any other CFB blog

NU guaranteed to be ranked? Never underestimate their ability to lose to a cupcake

"So just look at the bright side.  Maybe Harbaugh is our Kirk Ferentz"

Man we have finally hit the "gallows humor" stage of the JH era

 

still, I did laugh out loud at this one

09/05/2018 - 8:47am this reminds me of a John…

this reminds me of a John Cleese comedy skit about how to truly irritate the hell out of people- the key is to do it while attempting to help them. People can't bring themselves to yell at an irritating person who seems to be trying to be helpful.

This thread is the equivalent of a housewife saying to her husband "there were actually two years since we were married when you weren't a loser"

"Either Harbaugh is letting his standards slip or he's delegating all of the blocking to assistants and not demanding accountability."

Both- it would appear

"The loonies will likely abandon the site sooner than you think" 

I might be wrong- but it seems the "optimists" smear critics with negative labels far more than the reverse. And "optimists" seem to just assume that critics aren't true fans more than the reverse.

Is there something about being an "optimist" that makes a person engage in dirty fighting, smearing and personal attacks more than critics do? Most of the critics seem to attack the argument, most of the "optimists" seem to attack the person making the argument and engage in lots of propaganda techniques.

Can't we just all be civil and respectful of views that differ from ours without the black ops tactics?

Change the outcomes of another 3 plays and UM gets blown out- then we are all having another type of discussion here

09/03/2018 - 10:47am You write a very kind,…

You write a very kind, respectful post here to the OP- as did so did many others who replied. It would have been possible for a poster to go the low road and ridicule the OP (I have seen this often on the internet) but the posters on this thread really showed the class and kindness that should be the norm everywhere

09/03/2018 - 10:13am "Won't stay away for too…

"Won't stay away for too long - can't help it. Just need enough time to let everyone calm down. I have a busy few weeks ahead of me anyways, and I don't want something that's a distraction and negative, so it's a good time to step away for beat. Let's beat up on some lesser teams and allow everyone to compose themselves." 

You have a very condescending view of those who are critical of the program as being overly emotional- many of us are very calmly pointing out serious issues in the program.

It would be helpful for you to be less superior to those you disagree with- just stick to facts

09/03/2018 - 10:07am "With Wisconsin at home and…

"With Wisconsin at home and MSU and PSU getting torched by group of five offenses this week, nobody should be trembling in their boots for those games. I saw nothing yesterday to say that, if this team improves week to week, we can't win those three games"

Its always amazes me that fans reasonably point out that we can improve and learn- and then assume that other teams won't also

09/03/2018 - 9:57am A lot of the optimism on…

A lot of the optimism on this team rests on QB play- but our history is that our QB's get injured

Why is it people assume Patterson will last the season? The o-line a SERIOUS issue to the future of this team

09/02/2018 - 9:03pm I think we improve also- but…

I think we improve also- but other teams will also.

Its a strange thing that many fans feel that their team exists in a vacuum. I watched a lot of mistakes in many games yesterday- PSU, OSU surely have defensive issues- who knows where Texas is going. Notre Dame had some key dropped balls that could have led to a big score roll up. 

But they will work on improving these.

My big fear is our conditioning- which usually rears its ugly head during the last 6 games of the season. Under the past years of JH we seem to lose steam and get sluggish in the second half of a game.

09/02/2018 - 8:52pm FWIW- this is a rare game…

FWIW- this is a rare game where both teams uniforms are of complementary colors.

When I was in NO earlier this year I was surprised to see zero interest in the Tigers- every sign, sticker, shirt was about the Saints. I wonder if anyone down there is even watching this game.

LSU does look better- maybe the LSU coach/Brady Hoke comparisons are off the mark.

 

09/02/2018 - 1:11pm I didn't notice much shotgun…

I didn't notice much shotgun from us last night- doesn't that buy the QB some time? Why didn't we use it? Is it a "high risk" type of snap in CFB?

09/02/2018 - 12:09pm "Regarding the coaches,…

"Regarding the coaches, Harbaugh played QB in the NFL for many years. He took a lot of shots to the head. I wonder if what we are witnessing now is the initial stages of his NFL-induced cognitive impairment."

interesting perspective

 

Its also the case that some people who are intense a lot as a younger person simply burn out

09/02/2018 - 11:41am A lot of hyper people take a…

A lot of hyper people take a med called MJ- legal in MI no?

09/02/2018 - 12:17am Sadly, your joke is our…

Sadly, your joke is our reality. I cannot see how we avoid multiple QB injuries again this year- its like groundhog day. Harbaugh's only real hope at this point is to get lucky. If I had a son who was a top QB prospect I would not trust JH with his future.

09/01/2018 - 11:12pm We have absolutely no…

We have absolutely no running game and our QB's get injured each game- kinda hard to win unless you fix those items

01/03/2018 - 11:49pm This is a good diary. I live

This is a good diary. I live in C-bus also and follow the daily news on the Bucks. 

You are very right about the lack of quality "feel good" wins. There is even MORE to this. The wins MSU and SC got must feel even better knowing they defeated a UM team with players ranked higher by recruiters (David and Goliath FEELS really good to David).

Also, HOW you lose is important. UM just seems to fade as the game goes on and never has that exciting "come from behind" effort that other teams have.

Playing sloppy with lots of turnovers and penalties also makes a loss FEEL worse. We are the team that makes the other team's fans proud of their team- we make their highlight reels. 

A lot of UM fans on this board saw serious problems with the direction of the program and were banned to Bolivia. 

01/03/2018 - 11:45pm this is a great post- Hoke

this is a great post- Hoke recruited well. I keep wondering at all the people out there saying we can't do better than JH- there are real good coaches out there. I do believe that JH can get us a Big10 championship- I am not so sure CFB motivates him enough to actually do it.
