01/14/2019 - 11:49am Simpson's step-back three…

Simpson's step-back three late in the game was one of my favorite things so far this season. Kinda sums up the run very well.

Let's keep it going, guys. BEAT WISCONSIN!

At OSU two nights in a row? (Forgive the stupidity on my part -- but why diz?)

01/12/2019 - 5:49pm Damn. Was really hoping for…

Damn. Was really hoping for Dookie to lose. On the bright side, Ohio State lost today (third loss in a row).

Let's beat em in hockey tonight again and make their weekend WINLESS. Sound good?

 

01/11/2019 - 11:12am It's far, far easier to have…

It's far, far easier to have one PSU fan in your office than be surrounded by (mostly) OSU fans. Trust me on this one.

Your ideas…

Dear Valued Fan:

Your ideas are intriguing to me, and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

Yours truly,

Captain Jim

 

(In all seriousness, though -- yes, it was nice for him to respond. And NO, Jim is NOT an idiot; he clearly is well aware that changes need to be made)

01/08/2019 - 11:25am Tressel and Meyer to…

Tressel and Meyer to Michigan, then? Eh?

 

 

01/05/2019 - 12:10pm I'm rather interested in…

I'm rather interested in seeing just how good BOTH of these teams are (or are not). 

01/02/2019 - 2:25pm Maybe...us?

01/02/2019 - 1:38pm I think it's safe to say…

I think it's safe to say that most everyone here is IN FOR LIFE in terms of Michigan football. And that's the way it should be. This isn't the NFL, where fan allegiances shift like the winds -- justifiably so, in my opinion.

Will this get better? Who knows. It might. But then again, it might not. But one thing's for sure: when late August arrives, we'll all be back, and fully IN. 

Until then, go basketball. 

12/29/2018 - 10:51am Let's win today. Our 2019…

Let's win today. Our 2019 Wolverines can beat the 2018 Gators. ;-)

People say this game is "meaningless." I couldn't disagree more. Let's get to that 11-win mark and go into the offseason with some big-time optimism.

12/19/2018 - 9:50am NICE THINGS have returned…

NICE THINGS have returned. At least for now. Let's enjoy them! 

12/17/2018 - 2:10pm We can't have nice things…

We can't have nice things two days in a row, apparently. 

12/15/2018 - 4:06pm A win is a win. 11-0, baby.

A win is a win. 11-0, baby.

A lot of stuff for JB and the coaching staff to look at, and fix. And I trust they will.

GO BLUE!

12/15/2018 - 4:02pm Good job, Jordan! 

Good job, Jordan! 

12/15/2018 - 3:58pm MATTHEWS! 

MATTHEWS! 

12/15/2018 - 3:56pm Way to go, Charles. Nice…

Way to go, Charles. Nice drive to the bucket, drew the foul, and sunk both. That's the way to do it.

Flowers is having himself a day. 

12/15/2018 - 3:46pm Iggy scores!

Iggy scores!

12/15/2018 - 3:46pm Teske playing very…

Teske playing very tentatively (read: NOT GOOD) with three fouls out there. 

12/15/2018 - 3:25pm I'm glad to hear that,…

I'm glad to hear that, because I am one of those aforementioned "old people." 

12/15/2018 - 3:20pm Now we're cookin' with gas…

Now we're cookin' with gas. Let's keep it rolling! 

12/15/2018 - 3:15pm Points in the paint? Anyone?…

Points in the paint? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller...?

12/15/2018 - 2:42pm This...isn't going well.

I…

This...isn't going well.

I expect a pretty good halftime speech to take place here shortly. 

12/15/2018 - 2:21pm Western is hot with the 3…

Western is hot with the 3-ball so far. C'mon, guys. Let's get it going. 

12/15/2018 - 2:19pm Sloooooow start for both…

Sloooooow start for both teams. And *wonderful* FT shooting on display for our guys early on. Heh. Why is that ALWAYS an issue? 

12/02/2018 - 5:25pm Two words:

Jake. Butt.

 

 

Two words:

Jake. Butt.

 

 

12/02/2018 - 3:39pm Here's why.

On the same day…

Here's why.

On the same day we play, this follows:

No. 2 Clemson vs. No. 3 Notre Dame (CFP Semifinal)
4 p.m., Cotton Bowl, AT&T Stadium, Dallas, TX, ESPN

No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 4 Oklahoma (CFP Semifinal)
8 p.m., Orange Bowl, Hard Rock Stadium, Miami, FL, ESPN

 

So, not only are we playing Florida -- AGAIN -- our game will be completely overshadowed by both semifinal games taking place on the same day.

12/02/2018 - 3:15pm All the ingredients were…

All the ingredients were present for some very intriguing non-playoff bowl matchups. Michigan-LSU. UCF-Florida.

And we get this. Again.

I gotta say it, folks: I love my Wolverine football with a passion, but right now, I have exactly ZERO interest in this game.

That'll change in the next few weeks, I'm sure. But damn. Come on. 

12/02/2018 - 2:42pm No thanks. All that banner…

No thanks. All that banner would do is remind people of the outcome on the field in Columbus on November 24, 2018. Unless you're an Ohio State fan, why the fuck would you want to remember that?

12/02/2018 - 12:59pm Georgia, a 2-loss team…

Georgia, a 2-loss team without a conference title, DID finish above Ohio State, a 1-loss Big 10 champ.

Which means, of course, if Georgia HAD won vs. Bama yesterday -- and they really had every chance to do so -- there is NO DOUBT in my mind at all that Bama and Georgia would have both made the playoffs.

And gee that would have been fun for all, eh?

 

12/02/2018 - 12:56pm Just make up a new bowl.

Just make up a new bowl.

Michigan vs. Ohio State in the Don Brown Redemption Bowl.

 

12/02/2018 - 12:45pm Sigh.

Sigh.

12/02/2018 - 12:35pm I'm not watching a single…

I'm not watching a single second of the playoffs if Georgia is one of the 4 teams. 

12/02/2018 - 12:34pm Ah, shit. There goes our…

Ah, shit. There goes our edge vs. Florida.

;-)

12/02/2018 - 12:32pm ND is one of the biggest…

ND is one of the biggest names in college sports, with an enormous fanbase. They are a traditional power with a long history of success and wins, even though they have struggled a bit in more recent years. (Wow, that hits a little too close to home).

They are in. 

 

12/01/2018 - 9:52pm Oh for fuck's sake...

Well,…

Oh for fuck's sake...

Well, if THAT happens, I think we'd truly see an expanded playoff system next season. 

12/01/2018 - 9:50pm Seems like a while ago now,…

Seems like a while ago now, don't it? It really wasn't THAT long ago, but...it sure as shit seems like it. 

12/01/2018 - 9:49pm One thing is for sure, Urbs…

One thing is for sure, Urbs is gonna keep the pedal down in the second half. Really, OSU's only shot at the playoffs is a win with such extreme cruelty that you look at the scoreboard and say GOOD GOD MAN.

 

12/01/2018 - 9:45pm Call me crazy, but I just…

Call me crazy, but I just don't think the Big 10 West is as good as the Big 10 East.

 

12/01/2018 - 9:41pm I'm pretty sure we didn't…

I'm pretty sure we didn't lose by 31, guys. 

12/01/2018 - 9:38pm Before we kiss NW's ass too…

Before we kiss NW's ass too much concerning their "great" game plan, I suggest we wait and see what the final score is. Because I'm thinking something like 41-10. 

12/01/2018 - 5:21pm Wow. Bama is taking an…

Wow. Bama is taking an absolute drubbing so far. It's early, but...

12/01/2018 - 4:22pm I don't think NW is gonna…

I don't think NW is gonna stay "somewhat close," but I think the door has already closed on Ohio State -- at least in terms of Oklahoma. Their hopes will stay alive (sorta) with Clemson and Pitt yet to play. 

12/01/2018 - 4:12pm You...don't REALLY think…

You...don't REALLY think that's going to happen...right?

I mean, yeah, that would be great. But I just don't see NW staying anywhere close in this game. I think it could get out of hand very early. 

12/01/2018 - 4:04pm Not all that surprising…

Not all that surprising. Memphis played them VERY closely during the regular season, and, of course, UCF is without Milton today.

12/01/2018 - 10:06am I can't watch today. I'm…

I can't watch today. I'm completely disinterested in football.

Basketball is a different story.

Ohio State will win tonight by at least 21 points. You can take that to the bank. 

11/28/2018 - 8:46pm Let's get this tonight!

Let's get this tonight!

11/28/2018 - 2:03pm Central Florida runs a VERY…

Central Florida runs a VERY quick, hurry-up offense, with very little time between snaps. Not sure I want ANY of that action. 

11/25/2018 - 5:06pm Still bummed, but I…

Still bummed, but I predicted 10-2 in August, with losses to Ohio State and -- Penn State, maybe? I forget. 

In any event, the season went just about how I expected it to go. The HUGE exception being, of course, the 62-spot put up yesterday. I really didn't see that coming, and neither did anyone else, Buckeye fans included. 

Go Blue, as always, but I really, REALLY want to win The Game sooner than later. It might be nice  a few times prior to my 60s, man. 

11/25/2018 - 3:21pm I nominate this for the…

I nominate this for the worst take of the day.
