11/14/2018 - 10:09am I don't think it's quite…

I don't think it's quite that simple.  I think it's:

  • Win convincingly over Indiana.  I know margin of victory is not an official criteria in the rankings, but if we just squeak by Indiana at home this weekend, watch us drop behind Georgia.
  • Beat Ohio
  • Beat NW
  • Stay healthy.  If we get racked with high profile injuries, the committee will ding us for not being as competitive

LSU at 7 is just a complete fucking joke.

Because the teams behind them suck even more?

11/14/2018 - 9:12am How about we're a tough…

How about we're a tough match-up for Clemson?  I don't know why we as a collective group continue to assess our place in the CFP from a position of inferiority.  Alabama is the best team in the country by a good-sized margin right now, no argument.  Anyone facing them in the playoff is going to have their work cut out for them.  But Clemson?  I'd love to face Clemson and sic our defensive line on their freshman QB.  The BC defense gave Clemson a game for a while and for lack of a more productive offensive, I dare say could've really provided competition.  Clemson has yet to face an offense with as many weapons as Michigan.

11/14/2018 - 9:01am Listening to the media…

Listening to the media narrative around Notre Dame this season, there definitely seems to be an unspoken suspicion amongst most that the Irish are pretenders, but nobody is willing to rate an undefeated team of their prestige accordingly.  It seems like most are waiting for ND to stumble so they can sweep them aside for the teams that everyone feels are better.

11/13/2018 - 12:24pm Patterson right now is…

Patterson right now is projecting as a 3rd or 4th round draft pick.  Maybe he can improve that with more impressive performances in the coming weeks, but right now, the business case doesn't appear to be there.

11/13/2018 - 12:12pm And of those 3 INTs, how…

And of those 3 INTs, how many of them were complete derps on Patterson's part?  One?

11/13/2018 - 12:04pm Well, then everyone just… Well, then everyone just pull up a chair and warm you hands next to the fire.
11/12/2018 - 9:27am Michigan is averaging 45…

Michigan is averaging 45 points per game at home and 25 points per game on the road.  This spread isn't as crazy as expecting them to cover a 40 point spread on the road at Rutgers.

It's a really slow week in the B1G, incredibly Indiana / Michigan is the most intriguing match-up of the week.

Damn, Zach Smith is spreading across the NCAA Power 5 like Agent Smith did though The Matrix

I think the run game suffered from the lack of RPO threat from Shea.  It was pretty clear that we weren’t going to expose him to any high risk injury situations.

Meanwhile, the Big 12 is running commercials making a case for why their conference has the toughest schedule because they all play each other.  #everygamematters.  LOL.

I guess the relevant question is how important is quality of food and drink to you versus game-watching environment.  One tends to be inversely proportional to the other.  Myself, I like Ashley's because I can get pretty much any beer or whiskey, and the pub food is pretty good, but it's also a fairly mellow crowd.

That said, I've never watched a Michigan road game there, so maybe that dynamic is different.

The food at the Blue Leprechaun is abysmal.  There's a reason it always has space on football Saturday's when all the other bars are full.

Boo...double post.

11/08/2018 - 2:33pm This is a bad take.  We want…

This is a bad take.  We want to play in Indianapolis and we shouldn't care about how we get there.  Let The Game be about whether we maintain our spot in the CFP or not, but this Saturday; Go Green, Go White.

11/08/2018 - 12:22pm I'd like to replace one of…

I'd like to replace one of the "Stay Healthys" with getting Tarik Black his first touchdown catch of the season.  It would be nice to get the guy back on the horse.

11/06/2018 - 4:11pm All good things come to an…

All good things come to an end.  It's inevitable that OSU will lose a game to Michigan in Columbus.  There is not guarantee that this is the year when we finally get over that hump, but all signs certainly seem favorable for that to happen, but it's still incumbent on the coaching staff and the team to make that happen.

We're the better team this season, let's go into Columbus and play like it.

11/06/2018 - 2:50pm The day will come when we…

The day will come when we finally stumble and lose to Indiana on the football field....but it will not be this year.

11/06/2018 - 2:49pm Ugh, I was present live for…

Ugh, I was present live for that game.  I was a 15 year old HS Sophomore at the time and it was my first experience with gut-wrenching disappointment as a Wolverine fan.  Sadly, it wouldn't be my last.

11/06/2018 - 7:24am That's adorable.  I want to…

This is adorable.  I want to pinch this fan's cheeks he's just so cute.

Michigan probably won't cover because a 40ish point spread is a tough line for any team to cover, but we're going to win.

Oh yeah, and this isn't Michigan's trap game.  Indiana is our trap game.

11/06/2018 - 7:20am Root for the meteor in the…

Root for the meteor in the MSU / OSU game?  C'mon.  None of us want anything good for either of these programs, but there is a clear decision here.  MSU winning virtually assures us the B1G East.  We want to be in Indianapolis.  We want a banner.  The CFP will take care of itself regardless of OSU's record if Michigan wins out.

Look at it this way, MSU is working for us this weekend, like many Spartans grads so often do in the workforce.  Just hold your nose and say, "Go Green".

11/06/2018 - 7:16am Exactly.  Northwestern…

Exactly.  Northwestern definitely has a favorable path to winning the B1G West, but it's far from a sure thing.

11/05/2018 - 3:07pm The only difference is that…

The only difference is that Harbaugh can back his arrogance up with results.

11/05/2018 - 7:41am The thing to remember is…

The thing to remember is that although we're riding high now, we still could come up short of the CFP and Conference Championship.  Going to Columbus to play OSU for the right to go to Indianapolis will be a tall order, regardless of how bad the Buckeyes are looking.  Make no mistake, all the naysayers who were flooding this board with their "Fire Harbaugh" diatribes back in September are out there, waiting for this team to come up short.

That said, I like the idea of a mea culpa call-out thread; holding these folks accountable for overreacting and trolling.  I will admit to be a little chapped at these guys dismissing my optimism as being a "homer" and "fanboy" all while calling for Harbaugh's head without offering the better alternative. 

11/04/2018 - 12:45pm Let's hang 40+ on Rutgers…

Let's hang 40+ on Rutgers and Indiana in the first half so Shea can sit most of the 2nd half.

its a great thought, but it really hasn’t been our pattern.  We’ve been notoriously slow starters; how many times this season have we been up by more than 3-4 scores by halftime?

11/04/2018 - 9:33am I was there, Row 81 Section…

I was there, Row 81 Section 8.  Wish I had brought my gloves - it was chilly.

Especially when you’re sitting that high up in one of the end zones; if there’s any wind you’re catching all of it.

11/04/2018 - 9:14am Damn, that’s sexy.

Damn, that’s sexy.

11/04/2018 - 8:21am We’re beating teams at home…

We’re beating teams at home by an average of 21 points this season, but Indiana is going to buck that trend?

Hold your nose and say “Go Green”...or “Go Meteor”.

I realize the trolls can’t flood the board with their Harbaugh is overrated bullshit anymore, but what the fuck?

Preach Ace;  CFS is no match for a Michigan ass-kicking of Penn State.

We are going to fuck.  Rutgers.  Up.

11/02/2018 - 12:24pm Let me be clear, I don't see…

Let me be clear, I don't see him that way either, but the popular narrative around the whole incident has been distilled down to the easiest and most visible target, which has been Webber.  The truth is much more subtle and most people can't be bothered to really understand it.  It's easier to adopt the black/white position of Chris Webber is a bad person and move on.

Nobody should boo, but I know there will be plenty on hand who will.

Maybe some people will just be saying Boo-urns.

I'm afraid that ship has sailed.  Chris will forever be the primary villain in the whole Ed Martin affair, justified or not.

Some performances transcend even the sublime.  This was not one of those performances.

No, we want him to attempt the saddest of FGs with under two minutes, down 42-0, only to miss it.

Root for Bama on the road to win big over LSU.

Root for Northwestern to pull more magic out of their hat at home verus ND.

Beat Penn State.

This isn't that difficult.

Marcus sounds like a guy who doesn't know what he wants to be as a broadcaster, but he's seems to believe that credibility only lies with not being pigeon-holed as a Michigan homer.

Trying to motivate them?  I'm sure Jeff Brohm appreciates the assistance.  Jesus, what a stupid and hackneyed attempt at saving face.
