That was a one-two punch. He dumped and then Damien Williams dumped... That 2015 was a rough year for decommitments... (Weber, Kirkland, Jr., Shaun Crawford, etc.).

Good for him. Great. Screw OSU. Let’s win next year.

This is my first negative rant against Harbaugh:

I just don't know why the playcalling is so pigheaded that they must give away a down by plowing the ball up the middle each set of downs. So unimaginative, so scared or arrogant or whatever.

Once again, timid, predictable playcalling is the biggest culprit in this loss...

 

12/21/2018 - 2:15pm Yeah, I decided to look, and…

Yeah, I decided to look at his Twitter, and then I got pissed reading all the stupid-ass comments from our fans talking about bagmen and what a dumb decision he was making. Speculating here is one thing, but trashing the kid on his Twitter is a constant source of irritation.

Middle schoolers should stay off of Twitter...

I think I'm going to watch "Castaway" tonight, as some of the recent crystal balls remind me of when Wilson floated away from Tom Hanks...

Indeed. Almost as juvenile as the Area 51esque threads inferring that the end of Michigan football is nigh.

I thought about having my pole smoked, but I forgot to tell my wife about that plan. I think I'll just go to bed...

12/11/2018 - 1:53am Why? Because I want…

Why? Because I want attention.

11/25/2018 - 4:50pm Yeah, I woke up and was…

Yeah, I woke up and was still pretty bummed.

But honestly, I thought we would have no chance against Alabama. Sure I would have wanted to see it, but we are not at that level. I also don't think we would beat Georgia or Clemson. I think we could hang with ND and OSU (with some scheme changes), but they beat us.

So that puts us around No. 6 in the country, or somewhere in the 6-10. A top-10 team that goes 11-2 with a victory in a New Year's Six bowl game. 

I didn't like the play calling, and we simply got outschemed by one of the best coaches in college football history against a team with some better talent. 

But shit, this was a good, not great season. People calling this the end of UM football, or how this whole season is a failure, is a complete joke. 

 

11/24/2018 - 4:26pm Yep. OSU finally got their…

Yep. OSU finally got their shit together, and UM got its doors blown off. Someone I know who is the biggest fan I know is really sick, and this is probably their last UM game. I was so, so hoping they'd pull it out for him.

Urbz is a fantastic football coach. Maybe among the top two ever. 

And I wouldn't take that slimy POS over our coach. Go Blue, and go JH!

11/20/2018 - 10:36pm Excellent work, as always. 

Excellent work, as always. 

I have to say that I have options at Shoe tickets each time, and I've never gone. The flight at Thanksgiving, and the cost of tickets and hotels, is a minimum of $2,500. I simply can't justify spending that money and leaving my family with the possibility of getting my ass beat in Columbus by that guy because I'm wearing maize and blue...

I'll take that money and go to Hawaii to get my ass beat, thank you very much... 

11/20/2018 - 3:04am If OSU beats Michigan, Urban…

If OSU beats Michigan, Urban will not talk to his wife about it, and he certainly won't have any recollection of the incident.

Be angry. Don't get cocky. Remember the last decade. Stay hungry. Be pissed. Don't buy the BS. And....REVENGE!

I have a Die Hard battery that does not have an opinion on this matter.

I've kind of dismissed this guy as a human at this point. He may win 10 NC, but no way I'd want this guy as our coach. He's going to sit at hell's coaching table with JoePa someday ...

09/12/2018 - 11:37pm It should be open tryouts.

Perhaps the Pistons should hold open tryouts.

If you want a stud football player, make sure his first name ends with "avious."

03/25/2018 - 9:41am It’s spring break and I’m a teacher

Critical day is today when I try to convince my wife that a 30-hour, one-way drive (compared to $4,000 in airfare for the family) could be a blast. She was caught up in the euphoria as well, so she is willing to listen. I put my odds of pulling off the finals at 15 percent...

03/16/2018 - 12:28am I can't drink either

Got a rubber-glove type of physical tomorrow, which might be more enjoyable than this game...

 

03/16/2018 - 12:26am Glad we're winning, but

This has been a 47-minute fart

03/02/2018 - 4:00pm My eyes

just broke their ankles...

02/08/2018 - 12:35am Sorry ... repost

Nothing to see here...

02/08/2018 - 12:34am Agreed, but...

Seriously, there have been some odd circumstances that would have been difficult to predict, and there has been a lot of bad luck with our most important position.

JH came here with the cupboard bare, and still found magic in a transfer, and he recruited a highly ranked QB after losing out on KJ Costello.

Then Speight beats out the inexperienced freshmen, and proceeds to have a decent year until the end (and he wasn't terrible). (YEAR 2) There was reason to believe that Speight was going to be a strength rather than a weakness going into last year. He was at least going to improve on a serviceable year that included a few hiccups.

But then he was consistent, got hurt, and Peters couldn't unseat O'Korn. O'Korn implodes., and Peters comes in and gets hurt, and we're back to O'Korn.

I mean, say what you will about how Bama and OSU and Clemson can roll out freshmen who perform, but they also had zero holes on the rest of their team. We just can't afford to have subpar QB play if we hope to become elite. Someday, perhaps, but not now.

Year 4 means either Shea gets in and becomes QB, Peters plays better and keeps Shea off the field, or McCaffery kicks all of their asses. Either way, logic points to a more stable QB situation from here on out.

We have a zillion sophomores and juniors taking the field this year that were part of highly ranked classes. The sky fell today, but I'm pretty optimistic moving forward.

02/06/2018 - 3:00pm Not with me..

I don't think I'll ever be into grannies ... not even when I'm a grampie...

 

02/06/2018 - 12:48pm It’s been a stressful, dry marriage year.

So I’m giving myself a six pack of Two Hearted and a pair of gloves as a Valentines Day present...

01/04/2018 - 1:01pm Seriously,

Is anyone surprised by anything in that document? Disgusted, perhaps; not surprised.

01/02/2018 - 7:30pm Agree

But so you know, I didn't blame RR; I blame hiring RR.

01/02/2018 - 2:12pm Still reeling from Rich Rod...

The Rich Rod hire remains the most colossal mistake of this program. It was almost like having your old dad  (who was kind of lame) leave the family, and mom finds a stepdad. He’s cooler, younger, but he’s not the old dad, and he makes a lot of mistakes trying to replace your dad. But ultimately, even after four years, he just can’t be dad, and mom kicks him out and brings back old, lame dad. Familiar, yet inept.

 

This sums up eight years of the program, and while this was all happening, all the kids now in college (or who we’re recruiting) have watched all the cooler dads in the neighborhood win father of the year awards.

 

I still believe Father Jim will fix this. I don’t know how he fits into my dad analogy; perhaps he was a guy on a mission in Africa who returned and replaced lame, old dad.

 

I have issues...

 
01/01/2018 - 5:14pm Top-five terrible loss

I don't ever think I've seen such a prolonged meltdown by a Michigan team in a single game. I remember a top-ranked Miami team fighting back, and I remember the Buffs' Hail Mary, but a complete breakdown with a 16-point lead while driving into the endzone to seal it with two minutes left in the third quarter. And then the fumble ...

Brutal day, Michigan brethren.

Brutal day

12/14/2017 - 2:57am I ran past the Christmas train on a running trail here last

Saturday. As I passed, perhaps a hundred kids were waving at me as I jogged by. It was the only Rocky moment of my life. I just wish someone would have thrown me an apple to make the memory complete...
