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.

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.

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.

02/07/2018 - 8:08am I don't want to be a totally

I don't want to be totally negative but we have really bungled O-line recruiting at or near the signing deadline the last couple years.  Losting Hamilton to Stanford, Wilson to Georgia, and NPF is brutal.  We are really lucky there was an early signing period this year so we had guys locked in before all our staff changes started happening.  I'm not complaining about recruiting overall, we just have had bad luck or something on these late O-line guys.

02/02/2018 - 7:55pm  I second M-43.  It is

 I second M-43.  It is outstanding.

02/02/2018 - 11:03am The main reason I think he is

The main reason I think he is charged is because the world is watching and if people see that there are no real consequences for this, it would be more likely to continue.   Contempt would be a good way to handle it.  The guy doesn't deserve a conviction for a crime out of this but like I said, the world is watching.

02/02/2018 - 10:56am There are plenty of things to

There are plenty of things to charge him with.  Disturbing the Peace, Resist Obstruct, maybe even some sort of Obstructing justice.  My bet is that he gets charged but ends up with some sort of deferred sentence.  I don't blame the guy but you just can't allow that kind of stuff no matter how much the guy deserves it.

01/31/2018 - 10:29am We have actually been

We have actually been recruiting linebacker quite well.  We had Singleton, Anthony, and Ross last year and they were all in the top 211 composite.  McGrone looks an absolute beast in this class.  I hope we land Reese but I am more more worried about our recruiting in the trenches.

01/25/2018 - 11:52am I wish the arena league would

I wish the arena league would come back.  It was something different but very entertaining.


Edit:  I guess it still exists.  I haven't seen or heard about it in years.

01/23/2018 - 1:09pm I gotta say out of the

I gotta say out of the sleeper recruits we have taken, this guy gets me really excited.  So many different things you can do with an athlete like this.  I hope he goes Blue.

I was just posting this.  I'm glad I checked the page one last time before posting.  There has been a lot of great news this weekend.

01/05/2018 - 3:33pm I was really hoping for an

I was really hoping for an innovator that had more spread elements but this could work.  If you tell me Harbaugh is going to be more active in the offense then I'm all for it.  I remember seeing some of the formations he ran out at Stanford and I just don't feel like I've seen them here.  I thought the best formations/playcalling I saw this year was against OSU and then if was just sad during the bowl game.  I will trust the coach on this one, but hoping we are more exotic next season.

01/02/2018 - 10:15am This year is a huge letdown

This year is a huge letdown but we are coming off back to back 10 win seasons.  I have a lot of gripes but am not ready to jump off a cliff.  We have been in a deep hole and it is tough getting out.  I hope we are smart enough to make some offensive changes but I'm going to take a deep breath and enjoy football season being over for a while.

01/01/2018 - 4:27pm I was one of the Peters guys

I was one of the Peters guys who questioned getting Patterson.  I think I changed my tune.  He looked lost today and it was clear the coaches don't trust him.  He is still young but he had a bad look today.  I don't understand why it has been so hard for us to find a QB.  I don't care who starts next year as long as we can find a functional QB.  

12/20/2017 - 1:32pm I've been hurt too many

I've been hurt too many times.  I'm not getting sucked in this time.

12/12/2017 - 11:13am I won't lie, this makes me

I won't lie, this makes me feel more warm and fuzzy about the situation not that it matters at all..  I'm glad Harbaugh sat down with everyone to explain the situation.  We should be loaded at QB for the foreseeable future.  I have a feeling we hurt some of the teams we don't like very very badly next season.  The schedule is tough but the talent on the roster is undeniable.

12/08/2017 - 8:42am I'm not saying that it is

I'm not saying that it is wrong to want to get the best QB out on the field.  I want to win games and you need the best players to do that.  However, I don't think it is unrealistic to think this could be brought up when we are recruiting against other schools.  There is this idea that you commit, put in the work, pay your dues and get your chance if you are good enough.  Other schools could certainly float the idea that the first chance Harbaugh gets to go get some outsider that he likes better he will do it.  I'm not saying it is fair or right but could certainly be spun that way.  Peters by all accounts has been a wonderful student-athlete and is getting ready to head into his 3rd year in the program after taking a beating for his team this year, and the fanbase has fallen in love with the idea of chasing some kid that didn't commit to us that we like better.  I want to win but feel like there should be a component of loyalty.  I know this is big buisness and I sound naive but I wouldn't love it if I was Peters.


12/08/2017 - 5:50am I think Harbaugh will open it

I think Harbaugh will open it up more Patterson.  I think the coaches would love to run more spread concepts but just coudn't because of personnel.

Am I the only one that is reluctant to go get Patterson? This would be basically 3 out of 4 years Harbaugh has rolled out a transfer QB.  I really like Peters and would hate to see him leave.   I get the competition is good argument but the optics look a little bad to me.  I wouldn't say I'm exactly against getting Patterson but it just looks a little wonky to me from the outside.  Once again, I'm sure the coaches know more than me but I hope we are able to keep our other QB's even if Patterson comes aboard.  Honestly, I'm not sure he beats out Peters or DMac.  Harbaugh's system isn't easy and I'm not sure you can just roll in and be the man.  Either way, it gives me something to follow during the off season.

12/07/2017 - 1:49pm I would love to see him play

I would love to see him play one last time but with what happened to Butt last year I would totally understand if he wanted to sit out.  It was awesome watching him play this season.
