People act like the two teams are even in all ways up to the game..ugh.  OSU has had a pretty big talent edge and we know that talent makes a big difference.  Michigan has the coaching edge, which has given the team a chance the last couple of seasons.  No matter how good the coaching or the game plan, when the game is on the line, the players (talent) have to execute and unfortunately, Michigan's players did not.  This coming season, Michigan will finally have top-notch QB talent, experienced WR talent, seasoned RB's, improved OL talent, and of course a top-rated defense with a lot of talent.....and all at the same time.  The future is bright! 

05/02/2018 - 6:25am Here are mine

Oldies, but goodies:

  • The Sopranos (best show ever) 
  • Breaking Bad
  • Six Feet Under
  • The Wire

Newer, but really good:

  • Ozark
  • Broadchurch
  • Game of Thrones
  • Big Little Lies

I have a hard time getting into shows, but the above did the trick. The Sopranos is the only show I can watch more than once - watched it 3 times and will watch again...truly a masterpiece all the way around. 

 

04/30/2018 - 8:51pm My thoughts

- High quality wifi

- Better and less expensive food choices. For example, how about hot dogs that are truly grilled, instead of those steam/boiled hot dogs (gross) they sell for $7 now.  Don't sell stale dry pretzels (choking hazard). How about nachos with something more than just cheese and jalapenos (where's the beef?)?  The last time I had something at Michigan stadium that tasted good was when Mr. Spots had a concession stand there abou 8/9 years ago.  

- Sell beer / alcohol

- Give away pom poms during big games, especially night games (remember Under the Lights? the pom poms were great)

 

04/29/2018 - 8:23am Question for you

Did you eventually get into Grad School?  I know someone who graduated with a 2.9 and he's thinking about starting grad school soon.

02/17/2018 - 6:59am Outside of unrealistic Michigan fans

Almost nobody predicted any more than 8 wins for Michigan.  The 8-5 season wasn't a suprise to non-Michigan folks, including Amazon. Michigan's record was actually better than what would be expected with the youth, inexperience, and injuries it had.   So, the idea that Amazon won't air it because of the 8-5 season doesn't make sense.  Maybe the original plan was to cover 2 seasons - the season of struggle and then the season of triump - makes for a good story. 

02/17/2018 - 6:52am This right here

This right here pretty much sums up the 2017-2018 season and a great reason for optimism with Patterson at QB:

"Michigan often just lacked a QB who could get his feet set and deliver a quick, catchable ball to make the most of conflicted defenders"

02/10/2018 - 6:34am I remember

I do remember Mr. Spots having a stand there making philly sandwiches and I have to say that since they left 4-5 years ago (?) I have not found any concession food I actually like, except for the kettle corn.  The kettle corn is really good. 

02/07/2018 - 5:30pm Yesssss!!!

He's a decent DC, but not a great one. I am glad he's staying.  BTW, I heard on another site that he was never offered the job.  Fake opportunity to create fake publicity for OSU. 

01/27/2018 - 8:24am What?

But, you've already admitted that at the time you were more concerned with getting yourself laid.  Now, as a 50 + year old you care????

01/27/2018 - 8:23am What?

But, you've already admitted that at the time you were more concerned with getting yourself laid.  Now, as a 50 + year old you care????  

01/10/2018 - 3:59pm Well deserved

Good things ahead for Michigan football!  

01/09/2018 - 5:53pm Make it 16 teams

Make it 16 teams and I'm all in!  Non-playoff bowl games are boring, but making them playoff games instead would increase excitement, viewership, and obviosy revenue. 

01/05/2018 - 11:54am I wouldn't doubt

I wouldn't doubt that Harbaugh pointed Taggart in Barnett's direction.  Win/win for Harbaugh and Taggart. 

01/02/2018 - 6:17pm OK.

So either way, you're right. 

01/02/2018 - 2:36pm Congrats

Congrats on making something of yourself. You should be very proud of yourself.    I appreciate the post and your attitude and completely agree with it.  

01/02/2018 - 12:41pm Game for 2nd place in the SEC

Auburn beat both Alabama and Georgia.  This isn't a national championship game, but rather a game to see who is the 2nd best team in the SEC after Auburn. 

01/02/2018 - 10:40am Huh?

Isn't Michigan football what this site is pretty much all about?  Should we all leave now?  You're disppointed, as all we Michigan fans are, but don't be irrational.  

12/30/2017 - 8:24am This one...

He's obviously in training to be the next annoying OSU superfan...

12/07/2017 - 8:46pm Uhhhh....

Eliminate the conference championships and in an 8 team playoff, there would be no more games for the 8 teams there there is now for the 4 teams - 15 games.  This season's eventual national champion will have played 14-15 games in the season.  

12/06/2017 - 9:33pm 16 teams

16 teams would be great!  It would make it more exciting.  How exciting would the NCAA Tournament be if it only had 4 or 8 teams in it? Not very.  Let 16 teams play it for the national championship. Most fans would love it! 

Rather than wait a month to play the first playoff game, get them going with 8 games two weeks after the end of the regular season (no conference championships), then weekly games until the national championship. This season could have been: 

8 games on December 9

4 games on December 16

2 games on December 23 

National Championship on January 2nd  

 

12/06/2017 - 5:34pm Playoffs

I want a 16 team playoff, but if Harbaugh wants 16 I DEFINITELY want 16. I don't get the argument that it diminishes the regular season schedule.  You still have to be good to make the playoffs and all the games matter.   All other sports have a playoff and we never hear "the playoffs diminish the regular season."  Nobody complains about the 60+ teams that make the NCAA basketall tournament and nobody complains when Michigan gets in as the 6th (24th best) or 10th (40th best team) seed.  Maybe we should skip all the other rounds of the NCAA tournament and just hold the final 4 since they are the 4 best teams.... why give a 6th seed a chance to be national champion when they weren't one of the best 4 teams at the end of the regular season?? 

The playoffs are exciting because anybody that's in them can win, not just any of the 4 teams voted in by biased men sitting around a table being all subjective about everything, changing their criteria to fit their wants, and then tell fibs about why they selected which teams and not others. Playoffs because the teams have to actually PLAY it out.  If you're in it, you can win it and I like that. 

11/28/2017 - 7:16pm Really really enjoyed this one

I really enjoyed listening to the podcast.  Great stuff!

11/22/2017 - 1:27pm Toilet Bowl Stinkers

Toilet Bowl Stinkers

Can smell them a mile away

Buckeye tears bring joy 

 

 

 

11/21/2017 - 3:02pm I will

Dance and sing like I'm 3 instead of 43.  Joy, pure joy. 

11/19/2017 - 1:19pm The tackle was fine, but

After the tackle, the defender continue to drive an uncouncious Peter at least an additional yard along the ground, pushing off with his feet to gain leverage to do so. How is it not unnecessary roughness??

11/15/2017 - 6:22am Ummm....

The post said nothing about Michigan - it was about NC State's ranking and yet, your reply was about Michigan. Did you mean to reply to a different post? 

10/31/2017 - 7:53pm But

LSU also lost to Troy!  Michigan lost to #9 PSU and #24 MSU and won all its other games. 

10/31/2017 - 7:42pm What the heck???

Clemson is at #4????  They lost to unranked Syracuse, but hey their starting quarterback was injured, so disregard that loss....  Michigan lost to MSU  after it lost its starting quarterback and it drops almost 20 spots.  Also, LSU at #19??  MSU at #24? Yeah, they beat us, but they also just lost to Northwestern...   Our losses are to two top 25 teams.....  That's bullshit. 

10/31/2017 - 3:00pm I love these!

I loved this podcast.  The discussion about the game, the OL, and the mindset of the team was great! Jack Harbaugh is a real gem. 

10/21/2017 - 7:35am Wow

Regardless of the reason for the suspension of the license, how in the world does that make it OK that he drove while his license was suspended?  He pled to "defective equipment" when in fact he was driving without a valid license?? The idiodacy of this is incredible.  Another thing, would a regular Joe be able to get a similar case resolved within 2 days? NO, he'd have to wait weeks!  Gosh darn those prosecutors in the wastland of EL.... Sick. 

10/09/2017 - 8:40pm How about

Some energizing music and some pom poms at the very least.  What happened to playing Sandstorm by Darude?  That to me is one of the best for a college football game.  I remember they played it at the first Under the Lights at ND and it was a terrific energizer.  SANDSTORM.

09/24/2017 - 5:12pm In my view

In my view, the DB committed pass intereference, essentially moving Perry away from the ball before it arrived (hence the ball was behind Perry) and picking it off. 

09/10/2017 - 8:21pm LOL...

This is all on Urban . Can't blame JT or Beck or Herman or Wilson. This is squarely on Urban Meyer's shoulders. He said things would change after Clemson. Well, he was right- they've gotten worse.

04/13/2017 - 5:52am But....

Michigan didn't have the WR talent in 2015 and 2016 that it does now, so there are more viable options.  I think 4 guys with 40+ catches each is not out of the realm of possibility. 

02/27/2017 - 4:29pm Yuck

IMO, those are downright ugly.

02/21/2017 - 8:32am Yeah, that was ridiculous

I can accept that sometimes there will be a foul that is not called, because maybe the ref was looking elsewhere or didn't have a good angle or something like that.  What I cannot accept and what nobody should ever accept is a ref calling a foul where he DID NOT see contact.  How can you call a foul that you did NOT see, that nobody saw, because there was no contact?!!? That irks me. 

02/03/2017 - 4:24pm Crisler was better

I liked it in Crisler better - much better view of the stage for everybody, plus the extra bathrooms and concessions were a bonus. 

01/17/2017 - 6:07am Eh

Barkley and Sanders were both from Pennsylvannia. Show me a northern/midwestern recruiter who pulled a 5* running back from the south or west and I'd be very intrigued. 

01/05/2017 - 12:20pm Not acceptable

The kid should be sent home ASAP or at least suspended for the first half of the game.  I guess we can call them the Georgia Bull-y-dogs from here on out.  Thugs. 

12/02/2016 - 5:19am Ugh.

MUST, MUST, MUST remove "most deserving" as part of the criteria. What does "most deserving" even mean?  It could mean something different for each person.

 MUST, MUST, MUST remove "conference champion" as a criteria.  The conference champion isn't always the best team in its conference, and in this case neither team playing in the chamionship is one of the two best in the conference. 

The committee's task and what they have verbally indicated is their task is to choose the 4 BEST TEAMS - that is the only criteria.  If they do that, Michigan cannot be excluded.  Go Blue!!

11/28/2016 - 4:43pm Not only that......

Michigan has 9 wins against bowl eligible teams 

Both Colorado and Washington have only 4 wins against bowl eligible teams.  They've been feasting on the weak...

Penn State has 7 wins over bowl eligible teams

Wisconsin has 5 wins against bowl elible teams

Go Blue!!

11/27/2016 - 9:31am There's more

Not only that, Schwarzel, who was barred from reffing the 2006 game because he is from Ohio, REFFED THE GAME YESTERDAY as well.  TWO Ohio officials allowed to ref the game.  Delaney needs to answer for this - can him!!

11/24/2016 - 7:37am Outstanding!!

That was awesome!!  Thanks for putting that together and sharing.  I'm pumped!!!

11/20/2016 - 11:56am So what?

It's the whole season that counts, not just the latter part of it.  

11/20/2016 - 11:56am So what?

It's the whole season that counts, not just the latter part of it.  

11/20/2016 - 11:55am Yeah

I didn't think it made any sense and neither did the other guys' prediction.  Where is Michigan in all of that?  No way they are behind USC or even outside the top 6 with a close loss to OSU. 

11/19/2016 - 9:26am Whatever the weather today

It won't be as bad as the weather during the 2008 game against Northwestern and we made it through that, so we can handle today's weather no problem. 

11/19/2016 - 9:20am 56-0 Michigan

56-0 Michigan. 

11/08/2016 - 9:46pm Texas A & M at #8?????

It is absolutely absurb that Texas A&M is at #8, still in the top 10.  There's something very wrong with that. 

11/02/2016 - 7:01am And....

Louisville needed a score in the closing seconds just to beat a 2-5 Virginia team.  I don't think Louisville is all that good, so giving Clemson so much credit for beating them is just plain wrong.  Not to mention, NC State's missed 30-something yard field goal gift to Clemson - that should have a loss for Clemson, which needed overtime to get the lucky win.  

BTW, who remembers Florida's Urban Meyer campaigning for his team to get in the championship game in 2007 over Michigan because while Florida did lose a game, it was a loss in overtime, which he considered only "half a loss".  So, using that logic, Clemson has half a loss.
