I listened to Hysteria a lot as a kid.  It seems a little cheesy now that I'm older but I've got a soft spot for 80's hair bands.

Once again, I fail on the internet - It is McShay's draft 1.0

12/11/2018 - 1:47pm This feels like the scene in…

This feels like the scene in Billy Madison where the two kids explain to Adam Sandler's character that he is in loser denial.  I'm sure stranger things have happened but I'm not holding my breath.

12/07/2018 - 2:54pm I think we are already…

I think we are already starting to see an uptick in recruiting.  I like getting 2 top 100 kids a year with one of them being top 50.  Those kids tend to stay awhile and you can sustain success.  The 2018 class was amazing.  The 2019 has a Top 50 kid and the 121st ranked kid, and the 2020 has the composite 65 rated player.  I don't think we are ever going to live and die on one and done kids.  Coach B just does such a good job with player development that we lose guys earlier than anyone expects.

12/07/2018 - 11:16am I think Bush is the best…

I think Bush is the best Michigan linebacker of my football fandom which goes back to about 1986.  I never thought anyone would challenge D. Harris but I think Bush is my guy.  I also always had a spot or Jarrett Irons.  I never understood why he wasn't more of a pro prospect.

12/05/2018 - 12:47pm I knew we would lose…

I knew we would lose Matthews, but was hoping to have Iggy and Poole for at least another season.  Tell me again why more top prosepects don't want to come here and play.  We are turning into an NBA factory for semi-under the radar kids (non-one and done).

12/04/2018 - 11:58am This is just great news. …

This is just great news.  OSU may keep humming along but there is the potential for cracks now.  Haskins will probably go pro which means a new QB next year.  OSU will always have great talent but Meyer was just a beast to deal with no matter where he was at.  I think OSU will come back to the pack a little bit.

12/01/2018 - 9:43pm 330 yds in first half. …

330 yds in first half.  Maybe they are just good on offense

12/01/2018 - 6:06pm If we would have won last…

If we would have won last week, this board would be losing their bleeping mind over the thought of getting left out when we went on the road and lost by a TD in the first game of the year.  If Alabama loses, that is exactly what would have happened.  If the result holds this a great argument to expand to 8.  You have the potential for two 12-1 conference champs to be left out in the cold.

12/01/2018 - 5:27pm This is exactly why there is…

This is exactly why there is no point in playing anyone with a pulse in the non-conference.  The SEC plays no one and they still get two teams in.  Alabama is awesome but their resume sucks.  They beat LSU and pretty much no one else of substance.  If the panel really wanted to send a message they would leave them out.

12/01/2018 - 5:08pm I was just thinking the…

I was just thinking the exact same thing watching the game.  These schools just have better athletes.  I'm not bad mouthing our kids but there are NFL type bodies all over the field.

12/01/2018 - 4:34pm Both teams just have…

Both teams just have exceptional athletes on each side of the ball.  I don't really care who wins but it is fun seeing the talent all over the field.

11/29/2018 - 11:12pm Brutal.  A reminder of how…

Brutal.  A reminder of how blessed the vast majority of us on this board are despite the fact that we pout like small school children.

11/29/2018 - 3:42pm I'm going full internet…

I'm going full internet conspiracy theory and am thinking Pep is moving on and this kid got wind of it.  I have no facts or information to back this up.

11/29/2018 - 10:23am I thought this guy was all…

I thought this guy was all Blue.  I hope he signs with the good guy but recruting is just a strange beast.  

11/28/2018 - 8:07am I also don't get the…

I also don't get the Kingsbury idea.  I think we need more of a tweak.  We should use a little more spread, RPO and continue to have an athlete at QB.  I think Clemson is who we should be looking at for ideas.  They are pummeled OSU and are physical on both lines.  When they are at their best they have an elite type at QB.  Also, they don't recruit like OSU or Alabama.

11/26/2018 - 12:09pm I think he has been hurt all…

I think he has been hurt all year and I think he is making the right decision.  It was a joy watching him during his time here

11/25/2018 - 10:10am P. Cambell and Curtis Samuel…

P. Cambell and Curtis Samuel come to mind off the top of my head.  We just couldn't handle those guys.

11/25/2018 - 8:51am Bush and Gary have to go. …

Bush and Gary have to go.  Bush reminds me of those FSU and Miami linebackers of the 90's that are just built for the NFL.  One of my favorite Wolverines.  If I was him I would sit out the bowl even if I was healthy.  I think I would be happy if one corner stayed but I just have a bad feeling they will both bolt for the NFL.  I think everyone on offense should come back.  Most of them were unable to RS (Gentry excluded) but the rest of them could use a year to get stronger.  We still should be pretty good next year.  We just seem to be missing that one dynamic offensive piece that OSU always seems to have.  

11/24/2018 - 2:06pm It is what I was worried…

It is what I was worried about.  Despite that they have played subpar, OSU has superior athletes.  Watson is really struggling.  I wonder if we see Ambry in second half.  We are still in the game.  Offensive game plan was not good but if we play one good half, all is forgiven.

11/11/2018 - 6:30pm Forget NCAA violations, this…

Forget NCAA violations, this is a direct violation of the Bro Code.  This is insane but I'm greatly enjoying it.

11/04/2018 - 6:18pm I've always been a pretty…

I've always been a pretty level headed fan but I'm just stunned by the improvement of the offensive line.  In no universe did I think they would get to this level.  I was begging to see the young kids Hudson and Mayfield the first several weeks.   Like they say, if you listen to the fans you end up sitting with the fans.  It has been a fun ride the last several weeks.  The coaches deserve a lot of credit.

11/04/2018 - 12:42pm We were about one inch from…

We were about one inch from going to the playoff that year.  We wrecked people before that Iowa game.  It does seem like this team is peaking but the 2016 team was one or two plays from being one of the best Michigan teams in recent memory.

11/04/2018 - 11:10am I was thinking to how…

I was thinking to how similar this year is to 2016.  We are probably going to be 10-1 heading to Columbus for a monster showdown with OSU.  Kind of crazy that we are staring down 10 wins for the 3rd time in 4 years with the way we complain on this forum (myself included).  I really hope we get over the hump this year with OSU so we can officially quiet all the critics.  We are light years from the Hoke and RRod years.

11/02/2018 - 1:25pm I agree with you a 100…

I agree with you a 100 percent.  Gray sounds like a kid that wants to be a little bit closer to home.  I hope he chooses the good guys but can understand how difficult of a decision it has to be.

10/25/2018 - 11:47am It won't matter because…

It won't matter because there is so much football left.  Almost all the one loss teams will have two losses by the end of the season.  The SEC, Big 10 and Big 12 will just prey on each other the next couple weeks.  We just need to keep winning games and it will work out.

10/13/2018 - 10:05pm I can't remember the last…

I can't remember the last time our Offensive line wore down a good team.  It feels like the early 90's

10/13/2018 - 9:02pm 3 more points would be huge…

3 more points would be huge but I can't complain because we are out playing them.  We should be able to move through the air all game.  We need to be aggressive.

10/13/2018 - 8:27pm Yep, it is a bad night for…

Yep, it is a bad night for Gary to be out.  We will need to score points tonight.

10/10/2018 - 11:20am Georgia is building a super…

Georgia is building a super power.  Georgia and Alabama appear to be starting a very impressive rivalry.  Good Luck to the kid no matter who he picks.

10/06/2018 - 4:38pm I thought the play calling…

I thought the play calling was way better.  There were more formations and wrinkles.  We saw less zone read which was good because Shea never keeps it.   Offensive line has gotten better and better.  We still could be 11-1 or 7-5.  It just looks like we are opening up the playbook which makes me optimistic.

10/04/2018 - 6:04pm I think I agree with you.  I…

I think I agree with you.  I was watching the game and thinking the kids were playing pretty well but I just hated what we were doing on offense.  This just isn't what I expected in year 4 with a competent QB.  We were much more dynamic when Jedd Fisch was here.  It is hard to win with such pro-style unless you just have superior guys across the board like Alabama and Georgia.

09/18/2018 - 3:27pm I really feel like we are…

I really feel like we are close.  That being said, close could still be 8-4 or even 7-5.  I know that seems insane but I think we end up being a much better football team than last year.  I just hope the record reflects it.  I feel like if we were in the West we would probably be 10 - 2 not that it matters at all.  OSU seems like a playoff caliber team and I can't figure out the rest of the Big 10.  I think Wisconsin, PSU and MSU will be nail biters.

09/15/2018 - 7:42pm I honestly thought the kids…

I honestly thought the kids performed better today.  I hated the play calling in the first half.  Harbaugh was treating this like a scrimmage and he didn't want to put anything on tape.  They kept run blitzing us so the pass was going to be there.  It was hard to watch but we have some weapons on offense.  I just wish we would get more creative.  I remember watching his stuff and Stanford and being in awe of it.  I hope we see some of that this year.

09/12/2018 - 4:43pm I know the coaches are…

I know the coaches are smarter than me, but I'm having flashbacks to O'korn last year and their extreme loyalty to veterans.  I want to see one of the young kids (Hudson) at tackle.  At least it looks like we could be much better on the o-line next season and I have reason for optimism this season.

09/04/2018 - 3:09pm I see us 9-3 or 8-4.  If…

I see us 9-3 or 8-4.  If will be better than last year because QB play will be much better.  I still think we beat MSU and possibly PSU.  OSU and Wisky are going to be tough.  NW won't be a cake walk.  I think we are very talented and tackle play is going to be soul crushing all year.  I hope someone like Hudson makes a Lewan type RS freshman jump because it could save the season. 

09/03/2018 - 10:32am I 100 percent agree.  Our…

I 100 percent agree.  Our schedule is difficult enough.  No upside to taking this game.  You can't work out the kinks.  Even if you win ugly against an inferior foe (MSU and PSU), you are 1-0 at the end of the day.

09/02/2018 - 6:22am We have had bad luck with…

We have had bad luck with the offensive line in general.  Newsome, Hamilton flipping to Stanford late, Wilson to Georgia, Ekiyor to Alabama.  It is a shame not having an offensive line may derail the season.

08/22/2018 - 2:58pm This is interesting.  I'm…

This is interesting.  I'm really starting to wonder if Meyer gave them an ultimatum.  A couple game suspension would be such an easy resolution to this thing.  They don't really lose anything and get to save face.  This is one of those it would be great to be a fly on the wall moments.

I honestly enjoy it as it gives us something to talk about until the season starts.  It also gives me a flashback to the Barwis days when it seemed like we were constantly talking about this stuff.

08/21/2018 - 8:54am We purchased a cottage and…

We purchased a cottage and had our first summer on the water.  We added a fishing kayak, Sea Doo, and a pontoon.  Lots of memories were made.  Michigan during the summer is the best place on Earth.  If you are wondering the fishing kayak is my favorite toy.  There is something about just floating and fishing with a nice libation.  That is about as good as it gets whether you are catching fish or not.

08/21/2018 - 8:35am Personally, I love this…

Personally, I love this stuff but it seems like we do this every season when talking about our strength and conditioning guys.  Every year we are bigger stronger and faster.  I'm just ready for the season to start so we can see the results on the field.

08/09/2018 - 10:35am I may eat my words but would…

I may eat my words but would rather face Haskins than Barrett.  Dual Threat guys have just wrecked us over the years.  I always wished Michigan had a dual threat guy.  It just seems like college football has shifted that way with spread offenses.  It seems like almost all the elite teams have someone that could hurt you with their legs as well as their arm.

08/01/2018 - 6:32pm I think he is gone.  I think…

I think he is gone.  I think he resigns.  His wife is implicated in this as well.  I think he falls on the sword and moves on.  It isn't just him involved in this.  It isn't just the lie.  There are Title IX implications.

08/01/2018 - 6:15pm I'm not sure how they bring…

I'm not sure how they bring him back from this.  I know this is OSU but they are going to get crushed and they would deserve it if they reinstate him.

07/28/2018 - 3:06pm I'm all in.  We were spoiled…

I'm all in.  We were spoiled in year 1 and 2 and forgot how bad the previous decade was.  If we get good QB play we can beat anyone.  He made us relevant again.

07/25/2018 - 7:59am Is it sick that my first…

Is it sick that my first thought is I wonder how long it will be before they update this on NCAA football 2014?

07/14/2018 - 3:08pm This one stings.  Bball…

This one stings.  Bball program is still in great shape but he would have been a great fit.  

07/04/2018 - 11:46am Yep, like previously…

Yep, like previously mentioned - Sandlot, Jaws, Top Gun, maybe Jurassic Park, Point Break, or Terminator 2.  I saw the last 3 during the summer when I was a kid so they get nostalgia points.
