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.

07/02/2018 - 9:28am Jevon Kearse 2.0 - Seems…

Jevon Kearse 2.0 - Seems like a physical freak.  I really like this class we are putting together.

Sadly, I thought the exact same thing :(

06/22/2018 - 6:17pm I won't lie, I am excited. …

I won't lie, I am excited.  CWebb is one of my favorite players of all time.  I know it isn't rational knowing a lot of what happened, but it would be awesome to see him at the big house.

05/24/2018 - 9:11am I'm off tomorrow, and I will

I'm off tomorrow, and I will be cycling to and from our cottage, floating at the cottage and drinking at the cottage.  I can't wait.  There aren't many better places on Earth than Michigan in the summer time.

05/02/2018 - 3:03pm I always thought Carmelo

I always thought Carmelo Anthony was overrated.  He won a title in college but never seemed to do anything to make other players better.  

04/30/2018 - 4:18pm I used to coach wrestling

I used to coach wrestling against Paw Paw when Jason was on the team.  You could always hear his dad.  He seemed like a good dude.  You would never believe he wrestled 190 lb when you see him now.

04/27/2018 - 8:05pm I'm excited but am sick of

I'm excited but am sick of winning the offseason.  I hope to God we wreck some people come fall.

04/15/2018 - 5:45pm You are correct but if he is

You are correct but if he is from Florida and committed to Michigan this weekend I'm pretty confident it will stick.  With the current weather, I want to decommit from living in the state anymore.

04/06/2018 - 1:16pm I think we got the bump last

I think we got the bump last year and the bump comes from having better recruiters.  I think Saddi Washington is going to tear it up on the recruting trail going forward.  The on the court stuff will help but I think having great recruiters will be the ultimate reason we get a bump.

04/04/2018 - 3:32pm I believe this is a 5 year

I believe this is a 5 year felony but that sounds impossible - MCL 750.532.  

04/02/2018 - 9:35am I'm pretty sure they are

I'm pretty sure they are better than us.  I'm glad we get them in a winner take all game.  We need to shoot the ball better than we have recently and play great defense.  I think we need at least 70 points and probably 75 to have a realistic shot to win.  I'll be a homer and take the good guys 74-69.  I keep telling myself we are playing with house money at this point and it has been a great season.  I feel the basketball gods owe us after 2013.  I've convinced myself we will win.

04/01/2018 - 8:40pm I just get so sick of ESPN

I just get so sick of ESPN talking about the SEC all the time in football and the ACC in basketball.  I was genuinely proud when the Big 10 had perfect record in the bowl games before the Michigan game.  For some reason I like to see the conference do well.  I was giddy when MSU lost to Syracuse.  In state bragging rights are nice.  I don't really see OSU as a rival in basketball for some reason so I don't actively root for them to fail as much.  I just don't hate them the way I do in football.

04/01/2018 - 5:50pm I generally root for the Big

I generally root for the Big 10 in situations like this.  I think I rooted for OSU against Florida a decade a go.  I remember feeling dirty but generally want the conference to look good.  Also, I've just never liked Villanova.  OSU football is much tougher to root for than the basketball team in my opinion.  

03/26/2018 - 12:52pm That Defense is just scary on

That Defense is just scary on paper.  Could be one of the best we have ever had.  If we find a QB and piece together an O-line we are going to be so dangerous.  

03/22/2018 - 10:11pm I'm just here for the

I'm just here for the Muppets.....Great win.  So proud of this team.

03/16/2018 - 8:53pm I'm starting to get a good

I'm starting to get a good feeling about this class.  It seems like some of the changes we made will be for the better.  I think giving Partridge a bigger role in recruiting will just the shot in the arm we need on the recruiting trail.

03/04/2018 - 6:41pm Time for the Muppets

Time for the Muppets

03/03/2018 - 7:08pm I never even considered

I never even considered firing him or anything like that but his recruiting worried me a little bit a couple years back. We seemed to miss on a lot of guys. You can see what he can do when he has the horses.  The 2018 class looks amazing.  They remind of the class that played Louisville for the title.  With all the information leaking from the FBI case you can see why we probably didn't recruit at a higher level.  Recruiting in basketball is just ugly business.  You really appreciate him being on the straight and narrow especially when he is winning all these games as well.  Just a total class act.

02/21/2018 - 6:19pm Partridge delivers again.

Partridge delivers again.

02/21/2018 - 6:16pm Wait, are we good at

Wait, are we good at recruiting again?  I'm confused as to whether I should be excited or griping about how far we have fallen.

02/16/2018 - 10:24am I like the hire.  McElwain

I like the hire.  McElwain was pretty good at his stops before Florida.  His inability to develop a QB was his downfall.   Does that sound familiar at this point?  I'm more worried about too many cooks in the kitchen again this year but I still think something is going to shake out.

02/08/2018 - 3:15pm I don't get it.  I thought

I don't get it.  I thought they had ability to franchise him.  I would need to see more than 5 games before considering an offer like that

02/08/2018 - 10:35am I'm really curious what was

I'm really curious what was off this year with the class.  From very early it didn't seem like we were in on a lot of elite guys.  Combine that with missing out of the guys we thought we were going to get just magnified things.

Maybe it was the subpar season but we got off to slow start recruiting even before season got rolling.  My personal belief is that we have a couple coaches that are subpar recruiters.  Obviously Partridge and Mattison are great but I think losing Wheatley really hurt us.

02/07/2018 - 11:00am I'm pretty level headed and

I'm pretty level headed and this is brutal.  Over the last couple months we lost our top two recruits to Alabama and Georgia.  We lose our final 3 games.  OSU just rolls in and takes Friday and NPF and we don't win a single recruiting battle that I can remember other than Barrett.  We missed on OL Patterson and it seems like we are on the outside for the Rice transfer.

We are down to 19 in the composite while even PSU is at number six with 3 five stars.  People can say this stuff doesn't matter but we are making life real hard on ourselves going forward.

Patterson better be eligible.  The football Gods owe us one at this point.

02/07/2018 - 10:47am Wow, we didn't have a good

Wow, we didn't have a good day.  I'm glad it is over.  I will take some good news at some point in the future.  The last 2-3 months was just a series of dong punches on the field and in recruiting.

02/07/2018 - 10:44am This sucks, they just roll in

This sucks, they just roll in and take whoever they want.  You have to give them credit even though it makes me want to die inside.
