I agree that it's disrespectful but they've also beaten us more than not this century. Hope that finally changes this year. Maybe then the alternates will stop.

Ugh even the grainy, muted video made me sick. Feel for the guy, hope his recovery is smooth and speedy.

So just another example of Dave Brandon's complete incompetence. Unsurprising, but obviously unfortunate. Hopefully things are looking up from here, it seems to me (a very casual observer) that Michigan has done well recently.

Care to elaborate for those of us who might not have been following the soccer program closely?

I can't upvote either at 563 so I don't think 450 is it

I don't know how it will be after a game, but Grizzly Peak sounds like it'd work for you, and to a lesser extent Pretzel Bell. Both have better food than BWW, have plenty of TVs, and shouldn't be too crazy. Should be fine for an 18 year old. Grizzly Peak has better food than Pretzel Bell does, in my opinion, but they're both solid, and aren't soulless chains. Both are on the Main Street side of downtown, though.

Freshman Jake Ferguson has been

can't tell if this is an insult or you didn't finish writing the sentence

Do you have a source for the concussion stuff? I'd be curious in reading more about it.

Might work against Penn State but the Zone killer won't be very effective against us.

10/06/2018 - 6:26pm No. Replacing them with…

No. Replacing them with boring alumni (of which I am one, although I try not to be boring) won't make the atmosphere any better. At least the students cheer, get loud for the defense, and stand up. 

10/04/2018 - 3:30pm The stress level I'm willing…

The stress level I'm willing to tolerate depends greatly on the result, the quality of play and the opponent.

I would take a close fought and high quality football game that Michigan wins over a blowout over a crappy team that Michigan wins. But I'd prefer the blowout to a stressful loss or the M00N game. The best examples in recent memory are 2016 vs Wisconsin and 2011 vs Notre Dame.

I once fractured my pinkie finger so slightly it took multiple people looking at my x-rays to notice there was a fracture at all. It stopped hurting after a day or two. Hard cast for three weeks.

09/27/2018 - 12:08am 1. Hating Urban is justified…

1. Hating Urban is justified because he kept on someone he knew to be an abuser (or at least who he knew to be a bad example for impressionable young men) because he thinks he's some arbiter of second chances. He lied about knowing because he thought he could, and continues to lie ("it was a medication that affects my memory!" "does this medication ever affect your memory in terms of coaching?" "no it never has... it only helps me forget things I need to have not known about for plausible deniability!"). Also, he sees himself as a victim thus his "apologies" seem insincere.

2. I, for one, don't hate the school per se, in that I think there are good people affiliated with tOSU and it's not all bad. But at some point you have to look at the report they released, the day-long meeting ordeal and what they didn't look into (the text messages) and realize that they approached the whole thing with the ends all but decided - a suspension to give the impression of a punishment for pr purposes - rather than a process to determine the best course of action. Also, I worry the lesson will be a continuation of the Tressel culture where there's an implicit understanding that the head coach shouldn't know about things in order to avoid facing real consequences. The culture won't change until you guys make the difficult choice to change it. Keeping Urban was the easy choice.

3. When you guys come up to AA for the game, I always strive to be friendly to OSU fans even after we lose. The one time I went to Columbus, your fans largely came across as antagonistic and rude, and sore winners at that. I can handle some trash talk, that's part of sports fandom, but having been to other away environments (MSU, UW, PSU), it was by far the least welcoming. Just my experience. I'm sure you have some nice fans, though.

It pops more on TV. It might not dominate red but it's more dominant than our dark blue.

Our fanbase are largely self important people who sell their tickets to opposing fans rather than go and support the team (especially vs OSU)

Do you like getting good recruits?

This is why we're the only fanbase that can't do color-outs in our stadium.

You can put a t-shirt over a hoodie.

This comment reminded me of that youth football coaching legend twitter for some reason. I doubt anyone cares about my brain at 1:30 am, but if you don't follow it, you should. 

09/17/2018 - 4:58pm Collapsible water bottles…

Collapsible water bottles are allowed, or at least I saw a couple bringing them into the stadium as I was heading in. There's also free water cups at the hydration station by the student section (there may be more than one). I do agree the price for water should be reduced drastically especially on days like Saturday.

Didn't we drop 21 on Western in the first quarter? First drive was bad but after that it wasn't slow

09/16/2018 - 11:06am Hopefully OSU

Hopefully OSU

09/13/2018 - 8:25pm I hate you for making me…

I hate you for making me aware of this. I could have continued on in complete, blissful ignorance. (we lost 3-2 after conceding 2 in the last 5 minutes to take it to overtime, where we lost on a golden goal after having our golden goal shot go off the post)

09/06/2018 - 10:55am Yes, if they're on the…

Yes, if they're on the visiting team.

09/03/2018 - 11:59am Could've sworn Black caught…

Could've sworn Black caught one in one of those early home games before he got injured but I was wrong. To be fair, I was a victim of a fall wedding during the Cincinnati game last year but have no excuse for AF which I attended. The last WR TDs were against Cincinnati. Perry and Crawford each had one.

09/02/2018 - 6:53pm It's been a long time since…

It's been a long time since a WR caught a TD. It must've been Black's TD catch vs Air Force (?). Although, DPJ had that TD catch vs. Wisconsin that the refs screwed us out of. It's bad, though.

I want someone to explain how harbaugh is 'flashy'? 

08/17/2018 - 6:33pm The stuff that's gray with…

The stuff that's gray with maize accents looks wrong.

If Gary also had an older brother in the NFL these mock drafts wouldn't lean one way or the other. 

08/15/2018 - 9:29am This is the most irritating…

This is the most irritating thing to me, currently. Obviously a lot of low points over the past decade but that's the past and we can't change it. This is an ongoing thing. Did I think we we're going to win vs OSU last year? No. They had destroyed MSU and we had to start John O'Korn. But I went anyway, because that's what fans do when their biggest rival comes to town. They don't sell their tickets to said rival's fans. I was more pissed about that last year than the actual loss.

Does Michigan football count as a mistress?

Until we start hearing stuff about fall camp, Urban Meyer is about the only cfb storyline that falls in the realm of things I will be interested in enough to read. It's been a long off-season.

If you're near AA just stop by the athletic ticket office. They'll have them there for free. 

08/05/2018 - 11:39am I'd be interested in seeing…

I'd be interested in seeing the average per game over each season and how each game compared (and changed) the average. I'd be particularly interested in seeing that for two teams who play at the end of each season and who played a somewhat unusually refereed game a couple years ago. That'd be interesting.

I knew what he meant but that doesn't mean that that choice of words isn't most commonly used as a polite way to say someone died.

07/22/2018 - 4:52pm This season, you go on the…

This season, you go on the road to three major rivals who are all highly regarded, at least in the pre-season. Michigan has not won a road game against a ranked opponent since 2006. What are your plans to set your team up for greater success in these tougher environments and break this cycle?

Might sound like a troll comment but I'm really in the mindset now that it's basically impossible for us to win vs good competition on the road. Hell, last season we looked uninspired against bad competition on the road. The answer probably wouldn't do much but maybe encourage my hopes for this upcoming season a little more.

07/16/2018 - 9:50pm I wish my wife had taped me…

I wish my wife had taped me but she was asleep on the couch and got mad at me for rudely waking her up before getting mad at me for not waking her up to see it, as if I knew it was going to happen. 

07/15/2018 - 11:59am I'm pulling for France to…

I'm pulling for France to win because I said they would before the tournament and that is at least a small consolation for Germany choking.

A lot of comments have gone over your head if you think the political comments on the board only started after the Abdul El-Sayed podcast.

And anyone who complains about the local politics stuff is ridiculous. There's no way to be balanced between the two major parties in Ann Arbor politics.

07/01/2018 - 10:05am Every home game should be a…

Every home game should be a maize out, the students are just the only ones who follow through.

Fritz Haber

Developed Haber process to get nitrogen from the atmosphere for use in fertilizers, allowing for a much larger human population to be sustained.

also a huge proponent of the development and use of chemical weapons in WWI.

Both of these things were monumental for humanity, one good, one quite bad.

He's not even worthy of a properly spelled Hello post. Who would have thought this would be happening going into year 4 of Harbaugh? /s

to be fair, it was blatantly obvious because some of those tweets were the exact same things he was posting here, verbatim.

keep fighting the good fight!

making a sign that says "Recruit better, Harbaugh" and waving it around on the Diag would be more effective in improving that than being angry on a sports blog. Please leave us alone.

06/24/2018 - 11:30am Well we missed on those kids…

Well we missed on those kids. They want to go to different schools. My parents and older sister all went to Michigan State, that didn't stop me from wanting to go to Michigan. The staff can only do so much to convince vain kids to come to our school. The biggest draw is on field success and nothing about that can change until September. I have faith that the staff put in full effort to get their first choices, but the best kids have lots of good options and we won't always be their first choice. The staff can't control everything.
