Me either. More tough teams that Michigan must beat to go undefeated. Why would we want that? 

12/07/2018 - 6:42pm How would adding those two…

How would adding those two teams to our conference benefit Michigan in any way?

12/06/2018 - 4:09pm No, but basketball winning…

No, but basketball winning it all would be super cool. I was a sophomore in 1989 when basketball did win it all, and I went the elite 8 game in Lexington, KT against VA. That was amazing. 

But Michigan football is the only sport I really care about, so winning that again in my lifetime would be the best.

12/05/2018 - 2:53pm There are many issues with…

There are many issues with the way things are now and what might happen with the change. A few:

  • The East and West divisions are so lopsided with team quality. The East division teams are much better but only one team can win the division. 
  • The Game as the last game of the season is a huge asset for both Michigan and Ohio State to bring visibility to both programs. (Yes we've been losing, but when it's more even that will go away as a problem.) The visibility is an important thing for recruiting and revenue. Don't give that up.
  • In our homer focus, we just assume that Ohio State and Michigan will always be the top two teams in the Big 10. That's mistaken thinking. Other combinations will happen quite regularly.

You know, this is an accomplishment and does make me feel pretty good. 

11/27/2018 - 11:34am So next years schedule is…

So next years schedule is even harder than this year?  We could lose to any of these teams:

wisconsin

iowa

penn state

notre dame

msu

ohio state

I agree with you: I love bowl games. 

11/26/2018 - 5:16pm Agree with all of this…

Agree with all of this. Defense was it.

11/26/2018 - 2:04pm For me this is the Tipping…

For me this is the Tipping Point Game. It's not a wake up call that we have to try harder or some other offensive scheme (and for sure not another coach, JH is great), but what's in it for Michigan to get beat every year in the last game? What's in it for the rest of the big ten teams? Sure they might win the conference every seven years, but OSU will win every other year, or every year, or three years in row or four. 

I see nothing that will change that. Sure we'll win the game once in a while, but parity? Not happening anytime soon. Domination? Never going to happen. Go and think otherwise and wait another entire year of your life and then another and then another, but it ain't happening.

So, if those are the facts, then what do you do about that? Blast me if you want, but that's my realization after hoping once a year for something that doesn't change. 

11/26/2018 - 11:57am I believe in harbaugh but…

I believe in harbaugh but that game was all about superior altheletes burning our defense at will. No scheme was going to stop that. 

11/26/2018 - 12:02am Completely agree. The…

Completely agree. The defense was blown out. Why we keep harping on the offense that did ok I don’t understand. 

I’ll be haunted by visions of fast receivers running full speed across the middle with a defender three feet back all game long. 

Or the guy standing alone in the end zone  

 

 

11/25/2018 - 11:52pm Osu gets top talent every…

Osu gets top talent every year, so does Alabama. Yesterday’s game also made it simple for me: we are not at the elite level with Osu. I saw how fast they were. I saw how skilled they were. You saw it too. Did you see that jet sweep? 

Yes we are way better now with jb and he’s my guy. It’s less about Michigan and more about osu’s ability to recruit and that’s not changing.  

 

 

11/25/2018 - 11:38pm This. 

This. 

11/25/2018 - 1:12pm Good column. I realized…

Good column. I realized yesterday that we are never going to be Ohio state’s equal. Never. We may win once in a while but their program is among the three best in terms of talent and always will be. I know lots of anger will come my way for this but it’s reality. 

And you know what? That’s reality for every other big ten team and their fans too. Why stay in a conference where there’s an automatic loss for every team who plays them every year?

11/25/2018 - 11:42am Agreed, both Notre Dame and…

Agreed, both Notre Dame and Ohio state were epic failures of a supposedly elite defense. That was not on the offense: the defense could not stop them. We all realized that in their first drive. 

11/24/2018 - 10:33pm That game was all talent gap…

That game was all talent gap. 

11/24/2018 - 6:17pm This.  I watched the product…

This.  I watched the product of top physical athletes beat the crap out of us. And it will always be like that I’ve realized.

im not down on the team or coaches. Five and four stars are superior and always will be. This game was my last straw with playing osu. No more, we need to cry uncle and leave this game for good. We just can’t have an automatic beat down guaranteed on our schedule every year. If you don’t like what’s happening then change the situation.  Seriously. 

11/24/2018 - 4:49pm We need to leave the big 10… We need to leave the big 10 and go independent like Notre Dame for football. We will never beat them. The rest of the big ten needs to do the same. Osu will always win the conference.
11/24/2018 - 4:26pm We need to leave the big 10…

We need to leave the big 10 and go independent like Notre Dame for football. We will never beat them.

11/24/2018 - 4:20pm It’s not the coaching. They…

It’s not the coaching. They have superior athletes. 

11/24/2018 - 4:01pm We need to leave the Big Ten.

11/24/2018 - 4:01pm We need to leave the Big Ten.

We need to leave the Big Ten.

11/24/2018 - 3:09pm They are better athletes…

They are better athletes. That’s it. 

11/24/2018 - 2:00pm We will have to score on…

We will have to score on every trip from here on out. Pass pass pass.

11/24/2018 - 1:10pm No pressure on the qb. 

No pressure on the qb. 

11/24/2018 - 1:50am How does a team that lost…

How does a team that lost big to Purdue, almost lost to Maryland, barely beat penn state, had a hard time with MSU’s defense have any chance against the most hard hitting players we’ve seen in years? I was at the penn state game and couldn’t believe how good they are everywhere. 

31-21 Michigan

That’s award-winning sports writing right there. 

11/22/2018 - 4:41pm What a change in a year: I’m…

What a change in a year: I’m not worrying about the offense but I am about the defense.  

11/22/2018 - 10:46am Same here. 

Same here. 

11/19/2018 - 11:11am We are better in reality not…

We are better in reality not on paper. Look at mutual opponents.  

11/18/2018 - 7:32pm I watched the entire Osu…

I watched the entire Osu Maryland game yesterday and can say that osu SUCKED.  They were so bad at football I couldn’t believe it. Just when I thought Maryland would get crushed like always they cam up with a huge drive. I’m pretty confident in our team.  They are really good. Knock on wood.  

11/18/2018 - 10:58am Osu looked awful yesterday…

Osu looked awful yesterday against Maryland for Christ sakes.  But remember that if they win they go to championship game, so they will be highly motivated too. 

11/18/2018 - 2:31am I watched it too. Osu was so…

I watched it too. Osu was so bad everywhere. Fumbles, giving up big runs and passes, penalties- it was a shit show.   We were not a shit show today.  

11/18/2018 - 1:53am My son saw #2 kick a field…

My son saw #2 kick a field goal and shouted “Shea kicks field goals too! Man he’s good.”

yes he is kid.  

11/17/2018 - 11:22am I’m for hedging.  Osu losing…

I’m for hedging.  Osu losing today guaranties we play for big ten title, even if  we lose against them. Given that we could easily lose on the road against osu regardless of the osu Maryland outcome I’ll take the big ten game in our collective pockets.

Agreed.  We could be invaded by mars and Alabama will make the playoffs.

I laughed out loud at this: "In 2016, Michigan roasted Rutgers by a scoring margin (78-0) that would even the most hardened middle school bully would consider over-the-line."

That's double-plus good work right there. 

11/07/2018 - 4:36pm Wrong, they will take "the…

Wrong, they will take "the best teams in the country" and that would be AL, not MI (in their minds).

11/07/2018 - 4:33pm Completely agree with this

I was there in person with my son--his first game. We watched the second half at section 2 row 6 about the 35 yard line right behind the defense. In person these guys are so fast and tough it's crazy. PSU had zero chance in that game, just a complete domination everywhere you looked.

10/29/2018 - 4:57pm Just laughed out loud on a…

Just laughed out loud on a conference call I was listening to.

10/25/2018 - 5:22pm I want to see Rutgers Rutger…

I want to see Rutgers Rutger someone else. That would be like matter and antimatter coming into contact.

Yes who gives a shit.

I don't think they're very good this year.
