Sure hope you're right, MGB. I think the guys need to come out of the tunnel focused and ready for bear right from the get go  GO BLUE! ! 

10/19/2018 - 4:52pm Not to mention that the refs…

Not to mention that the refs will make virtually every call against us, and any call initially in our favor will be overturned by instant replay.

Yay coaches! We're now bowl eligible. Now go devise things appropriately devious for Sparty.

Hate to say it, but a great win for Sparty. Oh well, the joepa loving goonies will go home crying.

27-10 Wisco. Reality comes calling. We aren't who we hoped to be based on results against inferior teams. Unfortunately, Wisconsin is who we feared they would be. Wakey, wakey, hands off Jakey.

Makes sense that he qualified to overrule. He did stay at a Holiday Inn Express the night before.

10/09/2018 - 2:05pm Maybe it's just me, but I…

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see 9-3 as mediocre. It's only hard to take because Urbz averages about 11-1 at OSU.

Jake Butt endorses this message.

Without a doubt, my favorite MGoStaffWriter. Gonna miss you. Hope you beat those health issues quickly and get back to MGoWriting.

But Hatter, at least he CAN write, which already puts him head and shoulders above most MSU attendees.

Just reflects the old axiom: seldom is anything as good, or as bad, as it first appears. I also fall victim to overreacting often, sad to say. I'm already sorry I posted this comment. Never mind...

10/07/2018 - 6:42am I can't get too excited…

I can't get too excited about this win. We beat a so-so team by about the expected point spread. I believe we are at our high water mark for ranking this year. No way we go better than 3-3 the rest of the way. Reality will start setting in next week.

10/06/2018 - 4:45pm Gotta admit it: I was very…

Gotta admit it: I was very apathetic about pursuing Shea's transfer here. Thought we were short circuiting our internal QB development processes. Man was I wrong! He's a great leader, and can teach the backups a thing or two about making plays. A great role model. (I think I'll go have another slice of humble pie.)

10/02/2018 - 7:11pm I love JH as our head coach…

I love JH as our head coach. During his first 3 years plus 5 games, he has a 32-12 record (72.7%). We should be happy with that. Unfortunately, UM is in the same conference with Ohio State. During Urban Meyer's first 3 years plus 5 games, he was 43-3 (93.5%) with a National Championship. During his last 40 games, Urbz has cooled off to 35-5 (a "lowly" 87.5%). Tough act by our arch-rival for JH to follow. Plus most of us MGoFans agree that we see no coach we would want to replace Harbaugh.

In some ways, Jim is an exact coaching philosophy flip-flop from RR. RichRod was hell-bent on developing a spread offense. He insisted his DCs implement his favored 3-3-5 defense despite its continued failure, because he thought we'd simply always score more points than our opponents. Didn't work out. Now Harbaugh insists on a difficult to learn pro offense which has its learning shortcomings, but its not important because our D is so dominant. The jury is still out on its ultimate success.

10/01/2018 - 11:38am PSU cannot play either Wisci…

PSU cannot play either Wisci or Michigan at 7:30, October 13...duh!

09/30/2018 - 7:28am This is the second time this…

This is the second time this year Harbaugh has done this. I guess he's just trying to show confidence in his offense now. Prior to this year, his MO after winning the coin toss has always been to defer.

09/29/2018 - 5:41pm If this wasn't so pitiful,…

If this wasn't so pitiful, this would almost (ALMOST) be humorous. Another shit show away from the Big House. Don't we even practice for these games?

09/26/2018 - 12:48pm Absurdly flawed study. How…

Absurdly flawed study. How can Michigan State be ranked 93rd? They are nowhere near that good.

09/26/2018 - 11:38am Coaches usually cannot …

Coaches usually cannot  leave "freely." There are contract guarantees and restrictions that make it costly to leave before the contracts expire. Also, it's okay if we pay the athletes, as long as those athletes then pay their own tuition, room and board, books, etc, like other students working their way through school.

09/25/2018 - 8:24pm That's asking an awful lot…

That's asking an awful lot. Patience and logic are not strong suits around here. I'll only hold off until the third week of B1G play. 

09/25/2018 - 6:59am Gardner also holds 2 UM all…

Gardner also holds 2 UM all-time single game records, albeit against a lesser foe. On October 19, 2013 at Michigan Stadium, he threw for a record 503 yards, completing 21 of 29 attempts, with 2 TDs and 0 INTs. On that same day, he also ran for 81 yards and 3 TDs on 15 carries. His total offense of 584 yards was the second record he set that day.

09/23/2018 - 12:52pm You're right. IIRC, weren't…

You're right. IIRC, weren't we actually at 2-2 after four games before we completely shat the bed for the rest of the year?

09/23/2018 - 11:47am Now hold on there. If we…

Now hold on there. If we eliminated tiresome meme posts, we'd eliminate about 25% of Board commentary. 

09/22/2018 - 5:14pm Man, despite the fact Nordin…

Man, despite the fact Nordin nailed the 50-yard FG, he missed a PAT. Some of his other PATs were just barely inside the posts. Coulda easily been a couple more PATs missed. What gives with him?

09/22/2018 - 5:10pm Yep. Even the PbP announcers…

Yep. Even the PbP announcers on TV were sorta chuckling about the blown holding call against Hutch. They felt the refs just didn't want to extend the misery. Doesn't negate the blown call, they just confirmed it was obviously a blown call, and were at a loss to explain it.

09/22/2018 - 3:57pm No doubt now who the heir…

No doubt now who the heir apparent is if Shea leaves after this season. Dylan looks cool, poised, and competent back there.

09/22/2018 - 10:59am Item 3 on your list would…

Item 3 on your list would help me to watch more non-UM football games on TV also. I can tolerate commercials (barely) during Wolverine contests, but for other games I'm bummed by seeing the same Buick, Allstate, etc. commercials repeated for the third time BY HALFTIME. College games are getting nearly as bad as NFL games now.

09/21/2018 - 8:57pm 97-0 UM, easing the blight…

97-0 UM, easing the blight on our only national championship in the last 70 years. 

09/21/2018 - 7:47pm Could it be that one of the…

Could it be that one of the reasons our offense appears to have been improving is that we've played successively weaker opponents? 

09/18/2018 - 6:57pm Not sure I buy that "OL will…

Not sure I buy that "OL will improve by the end of the year" thought. We've been chanting that for ten years, or so. Never seems to happen. Some of the hoped for improvement is no doubt offset by opposing DL improvements keeping pace with our efforts. We can't realistically assume that only our team will get better, can we? 

09/17/2018 - 6:39pm Less than half of our…

Less than half of our offense? No wonder we struggle at times. I think we should always use all 11 positions from now on.

09/17/2018 - 3:37pm Seems a bit much assuming…

Seems a bit much assuming Nebraska can bring on any QB with 2 legs and a throwing arm not in a shoulder-to-wrist hard cast.

09/16/2018 - 7:13am We don't stand a chance…

We don't stand a chance against OSU. Anyone who believes we do is full of shit. We are a decent team; they are elite. We are fucked until Urban Meyer leaves. Period.

09/11/2018 - 5:07pm Where are alien abductions…

Where are alien abductions when we need them? C'mon ETs, take Mr. Holland.

09/10/2018 - 1:07pm Went through the same thing…

Went through the same thing here in west Florida last year with Hurricane Irma. We lucked out in my neighborhood. In the very last few hours, the storm center veered just slightly to the west. No real wind damage, but we were out of power for 45 hours.

One of the governors in your area said it best, "Prepare for the worst; pray for the best."  Best of luck to all of you in the path of the storm.

09/03/2018 - 4:15pm Braylon, get outta town. You…

Braylon, get outta town. You're not welcome here anymore. 

09/01/2018 - 8:26am I'll forego gloating about…

I'll forego gloating about MSU's first-game woes until I see how we break from the gate tonight. 

08/31/2018 - 12:47pm A loss will cause me to…

A loss will cause me to swear off watching UM football forever and ever. A win will ease my conscience for ignoring the last time I swore off UM football for all eternity (right after the SC bowl game). 

08/30/2018 - 8:42pm What the hell kind of …

What the hell kind of "garment" is Fleck wearing? Actually looks like he's wearing a golden pajama top. Is that supposed to be a visual play on his initials. I'm no fashion guru, but that's just plain butt ugly, PJ. 

08/30/2018 - 6:38pm In addition to the 3 QBs you…

In addition to the 3 QBs you named, OP, remember to make room for the inevitable QB transfer Harbaugh seems to always covet.

08/30/2018 - 11:21am I suspect Russian…

I suspect Russian shenanigans with all computer-generated predictions nowadays. What does Brian's ouija board predict?

08/29/2018 - 10:08am Yeah, I noticed that during…

Yeah, I noticed that during his Monday presser also. Seemed unusual at the time, particularly given what happened to Black just a few days earlier. Said something like he's happy with the prep for ND. I'm not used to coaches not being hesitant about final preps for the all-important Game 1. The last time I recall that was RR in 2010 just before Denard's first season as a starter. We all know how well that launch went, much to UConn's surprise. Is JH that confident about our rejuvenated offense under Patterson?

08/28/2018 - 12:57pm Your "they can't be worse"…

Your "they can't be worse" comment is scary. A pox on you if the offense becomes cursed because of this dare. :-) 

08/27/2018 - 8:15pm If this prediction holds…

If this prediction holds true, this Board will go into meltdown. This would be a severe test for Brian's re-energized, bulked up hamsters.

08/27/2018 - 6:15pm 120.25 hours from right now. 

121.25 hours from right now. 

08/27/2018 - 1:03pm We have the defense to be 12…

We have the defense to be 12-0 bound, but until proven otherwise our offense may be 9-3 caliber at best. Hope l'm wrong.

08/27/2018 - 7:17am Jon Jansen is a fine…

Jon Jansen is a fine addition to the program. I've always enjoyed his post-game analyses on the UM radio broadcasts. I'd sure like to see UM phase him into the broadcast booth as well, and Brandy out. Brandy's exaggerated enthusiasm is becoming quite tiresome, and he is certainly not a good PbP guy. Cannot deny that Jim is a great Michigan Man, however.

08/27/2018 - 6:50am Game Week is finally here! I…

Game Week is finally here! I sure hope Rashan is ready to go full steam on Saturday. I know I am. Enjoy the week, MGoPeeps.

08/19/2018 - 12:35pm Brings back fond memories…

Brings back fond memories. Nice catch, Indy.

08/15/2018 - 3:12pm Agreed. If they'd said…

Agreed. If they'd said Rashan was first team and Bush second team, I wouldn't have batted an eyelash.
