12/14/2018 - 7:58pm Nah. I knew it'd be on here…

Nah. I knew it'd be on here as soon as it happened. I think of this site the same way Roger Smith described his Mr. Belvedere chat room: "Those nerds are pretty punctual."

12/12/2018 - 1:42pm If true, I am proud that our…

If true, I am proud that our coaches enforce discipline and boot troublemakers. They don't try to cover shit up and make it go away, like some schools I could mention ...

12/06/2018 - 3:30pm Both would be great. But I…

Both would be great. But I always tell people there are three things in life I care about: My family, my job, and Michigan football.

12/06/2018 - 12:55pm I always liked that story of…

I always liked that story of how Tennessee had the bigger stadium for a short time in the 1990s. And them Michigan was like, "Oh, you have a bigger stadium now. I see. We'll take care that."

And then they lowered the field to install more seats.

12/06/2018 - 12:50pm North of Kansas.

North of Kansas.

12/06/2018 - 12:49pm Others can say what they…

Others can say what they want about Michigan fans being "arrogant" or "entitled." One thing they can't say is that we don't show up to support our team!

 

GO BLUE!

12/05/2018 - 8:18am That's right. Remember two…

That's right. Remember two years ago when Cowherd knew Harbaugh was heading to the Rams?

 

 

Jive turkey.

12/05/2018 - 8:06am Sigh. We go through this…

Sigh. We go through this bullshit every friggin' year.

12/04/2018 - 8:13am I have had no respect for…

I have had no respect for ESPN since "The Decision." If not for live sporting events it would be a complete waste of a channel.

11/29/2018 - 3:11pm Not to mention Peters was…

Not to mention Peters was essentially forced into action before he was ready.

11/29/2018 - 3:03pm So this wasn't the "commit…

So this wasn't the "commit watch" we were put on earlier in the week.

Are we still on commit watch? Or do those eventually expire like a severe thunderstorm watch?

11/29/2018 - 2:58pm Have you heard of Joe Milton…

Have you heard of Joe Milton? Or Cade McNamara?

11/27/2018 - 10:12pm But were they defeated with…

But were they defeated with dignity?

11/27/2018 - 5:54pm Now THAT'S funny.

Now THAT'S funny.

11/26/2018 - 4:53pm I've followed pretty much…

I've followed pretty much every Michigan game for the last 20 years. That Outback Bowl was the most horrendous choke job, in terms of turning a likely win into an embarrassing loss, that I have ever seen from this program.

11/26/2018 - 4:50pm I agree with the OP. A bowl…

I agree with the OP. A bowl win over a quality opponent would erase some of Saturday's taste in everyone's mouths. It would be a win in a "big game." And it would set Michigan up well to open next season probably in or near the top ten.

11/13/2018 - 5:04pm Oh my God! Carter scored!

Oh my God - Carter's in the end zone!

11/13/2018 - 4:57pm For shits and grins I…

For shits and grins I googled "Auston Robertson freep.com" and they had nothing on his situation. I googled "Auston Robertson detnews.com" and they had a short news brief from the AP. So ... neither paper paid any attention to what happened. Something tells me if it had been a former Wolverine and a chance to rip Jim Harbaugh they'd have been on this story like stink on a pig.

11/12/2018 - 3:59pm Me too, and I hope he takes…

Me too, and I hope he takes over before this year's Cotton Bowl.

11/12/2018 - 2:15pm Yeah, I completely fail to…

Yeah, I completely fail to see where Lomas was an improvement over Branstatter in any way. With everything that's wrong with the Lions why are they worrying about replacing a great radio analyst with a mediocre one?

Oh wait ... it's the Lions. And stop slouching.

11/12/2018 - 2:12pm It's almost like he's…

It's almost like he's getting the late-in-his-career Vin Scully treatment, where he only has to do home games.

11/12/2018 - 2:08pm Yeah, how many times are we…

Yeah, how many times are we going to beat this dead horse?

11/11/2018 - 7:47am Injuries or not, to me he's…

Injuries or not, to me he's an overrated player who fumbles too much and worries more about what's best for LJ Scott than what's best for his team.

11/10/2018 - 8:21pm It's not like it matters. Mr…

It's not like it matters. Mr. Ash will only be there another couple of weeks.

11/09/2018 - 12:47pm We've come a long way.

We've come a long way.

11/09/2018 - 10:42am "Okay, futureboy, who's…

"Okay, futureboy, who's President of the United States in 1985?"

"Ronald Reagan."

"Ronald Reagan!? The Actor!?"

 

(Actually meant this to be a response to UMQuadz05)

11/07/2018 - 10:36am It may sound odd, but I don…

It may sound odd, but I don't think there is a better match of a voice to a stadium. That booming voice cascading over that giant bowl ... it's great to be a Michigan Wolverine.

11/07/2018 - 10:34am I absolutely loathe the…

I absolutely loathe the White Sox, totally out of spite for the Hawk. You could replace him with one of those sound effects machines, except instead of sound effects each button just holds one of his stupid cliche Hawkisms.

I understand this is how the Tigers will replace Rod Allen.

11/06/2018 - 8:00am Totally agree on Champion…

Totally agree on Champion/Miller. I was pissed when the Lions made that move almost as much as I was when they booted Branstatter. Instead of firing good announcers perhaps they should focus on building a decent football team.

11/06/2018 - 7:54am I listen to all the games…

I listen to all the games and while Brandy certainly has his flaws and lacks the great descriptive style Frank Beckmann had, he has improved and you can follow a game with him. I have listened to a lot of college PBP guys on satellite radio and trust me, there are plenty of announcers worse than him. Look on the bright side ... We could be stuck with the nasaly whine of George Blaha. 

11/05/2018 - 12:14pm I tend to agree. But Fox and…

I tend to agree. But Fox and ABC/ESPN probably pay a lot more money for the ability to set game times. The B1G brass aren't going to turn down more $$$$$$$$$$$$.

10/30/2018 - 3:30pm The Browns have a coaching…

The Browns have a coaching vacancy ...

I'm just saying ...

10/30/2018 - 3:23pm That is completely…

That is completely unacceptable. Maryland should be ashamed of itself.

10/30/2018 - 3:21pm I saw an article where he…

I saw an article where he said he was definitely returning to OSU next year. And if there is one thing we know about Urban Meyer, it's that you can always take him at his word.

10/26/2018 - 7:59pm Whiskey and Vernors.

Whiskey and Vernors.

10/26/2018 - 6:01pm That thing freaks me out.

That thing freaks me out.

10/26/2018 - 3:29pm I was just being facetious…

I was just being facetious and referencing Sparties in general.

10/26/2018 - 3:14pm Hmm. Fits right in with the…

Hmm. Fits right in with the Sparties then, doesn't he?

10/26/2018 - 12:56pm Geez ... Karma really is a…

Geez ... Karma really is a bitch.

10/26/2018 - 12:52pm Depending on Lewerke's…

Depending on Lewerke's health (or perhaps not) MSU could lose 3-4 more games this year.

10/26/2018 - 12:42pm The NBA isn't highly…

The NBA isn't highly appealing to me. And people have been predicting MLB's death for 30 years and that soccer would become a major sport in the US for 40 years. Neither has happened.

10/26/2018 - 12:39pm I completely agree regarding…

I completely agree regarding the NBA. All sizzle and no steak. I haven't watched since The Decision and probably won't again.

10/24/2018 - 8:20am I never knew he was a State…

I never knew he was a State grad but it makes sense now. And since he's praising Michigan the Freep will probably fire him.

10/22/2018 - 8:20am That Wal-Mart Wolverine…

That Wal-Mart Wolverine bullshit really bugs me. I know they made it up because they are pissed U-M has so many more fans but what's the logic here? Just because I didn't attend U-M I can't root for it? I don't live in Detroit. Does that mean I can't root for the Tigers?

10/21/2018 - 10:53pm That's a good question that…

Those are good questions that no MSU beat writers will ask this week.

10/20/2018 - 7:06pm Wow. So much for Couch's…

Wow. So much for Couch's objectivity and professionalism. What a piece of crap.

10/19/2018 - 4:03pm There is a youtube video by…

There is a youtube video by WolverinHistorian with a lot of great beckmann calls. Just search those two words and it should come up. Great stuff.

10/19/2018 - 4:00pm The score I've been seeing…

The score I've been seeing all week in my head is Michigan 28, MSU 20.

10/16/2018 - 1:46pm That third-and-short stat is…

That third-and-short stat is a big improvement over last year. In 2017 it seemed like Michigan was in third-and-long all the time.

10/16/2018 - 12:06pm ^This. My biggest worry…

^This. My biggest worry Saturday is Michigan beating itself with turnovers and bad penalties. Take those away and it gets a lot harder for MSU to keep up.
