I'm sure there will be at least 3 or 4 more loses this season. Probably 2 on the road and may be one at home. I just  hope the shooting percentage improves as we head towards tournament time.

Two consecutive blowouts to end the season will turn many negative. Even with a few set backs, the program will continue to improve under Harbaugh.

Dude, the MODs were trying to save you. But you just kept posting something that happened over a year ago, along with complaining your year old news would not be posted. Now it is! Use a quick Google check the next time before posting.

Looks like the coach took a look under the hood and said this offense has a lot unused lithium and deuterium for an explosive offense.

Bryan Mone was suppose to be that kind of guy this past season. May be injuries in the past harmed his development. I thought we was going to be a standout NT or DT.

01/13/2019 - 4:32pm The more DT the merrier. We…

The more DT the merrier. We saw how our DE got banged up and injured this past season, then we found out our DT were not greatest at stopping the run or putting on a pass rush.

$$$$$, if you got the money you can have a beer or coffee with band members after the show.

Ten Years Gone and The Song Remains the Same are some of LZ great but underrated songs.

KC also runs an RPO-west coast offense.

I thought this game was going to be close. Yawn, Luck is so inconsistent!

IMO, Heart Breaker is one of their best songs and that is on II, so I rank II high. For some reason Physical Graffiti never got as much radio play. I rarely heard "In My Time of Dying" played on the radio in the mid 70s, may be it was too long.The Rover and Ten Years Gone got some play time. Kashmir was played way too much!

LZ was my favorite band when I was a kid. Dazed and confused is my favorite song from this album. LZII is my favorite album. PG is pretty good. I liked songs from all their albums. They were my gateway band into harder rock during the 80s, Maiden, Metallica and Slayer.

01/11/2019 - 1:23am Welcome to the team Coach…

Welcome to the team Coach Gattis. Remind Jim that he has a 5 star QB in Shea and several excellent WR. Lets use them next season and open up this offense! Should be fun watching the offense next season.

01/11/2019 - 1:14am Because Warriner will create…

Because Warriner will create the running plays (he had this experience at OSU) and Gattis will create the pass plays. Just like 2016 with Drevno and Jed. Gattis worked up the passing offensive game plan for Alabama this past year. Plus Jim wants to keep Warriner as OL coach and does not want him to leave.

01/10/2019 - 10:23pm Look like they were on…

Look like they were on cruise control. Good D, sloppy offense in the first improves in the 2nd. Road games in the B1G are not easy!

01/09/2019 - 9:12pm I wonder how Michigan…

I wonder how Michigan Stadium has had a 100,000 plus fans attend games since 1975. I think we have great Michigan football fan base. Plus Columbus does not have pro football or a pro baseball team like metro Detroit, so the only thing fans have in Columbus is OSU football.

01/09/2019 - 8:58pm I don't  understand why our…

I don't  understand why our fans are so unhappy about our football program. BPONE was in full force during the RR years and besides Hoke's first season, BPONE made another appearance. Harbaugh has gotten our program back to the Carr years from '02-'07. I'm sure he will eventually beat OSU, win the B1G and reach the playoffs in the next 5 seasons. I'm more excited about the football program since Harbaugh was hired.

01/09/2019 - 8:36pm Harbaugh has never replied…

Harbaugh has never replied to any my letters!  My last letter requested him to hire the best pass happy OC in the country. I told  him  we  have great talent at WR and QB and we need to use them next season.

Kool-Aid was invent in Hastings, NE back in the 20s. I guess it gives NE something good to take credit for.

If Brown takes the Temple job, then something big will be coming down the line. JH to the NFL Dolphins?

If you can't beat them join them!

It was great watching bama get bitch slapped. Though we may have go through 3 more years of Clemson being NC.

This game is showing that good offenses win championships. I hope Harbaugh hires a new OC who can open up our offense before we are left behind.

01/07/2019 - 7:44pm I think he got sick of our…

I think he got sick of our gimmick D and having a D you coached on get scorched by OSU and Florida was probably the straw that broke the camels back. I'm sure he would have stayed at Michigan if he was offered to be the DC.

01/03/2019 - 2:21am When Harbaugh leaves or…

When Harbaugh leaves or retires, Jay will be our next coach and I think he may do a better job than his Dad.

Letterman had SD on a lot in the 80s and 90s back when Letterman was funny, before he got old and grouchy.

01/03/2019 - 12:33am I would run into Harbaugh…

I would run into Harbaugh once in a while on campus, I was year ahead of him. But he was pretty cool and all the students liked him. He was very talkative when he was a student. I think he talks a lot more to his coaches and puts on a show to the media of a person with very few words.

01/02/2019 - 12:41pm The big difference is that…

The big difference is that we had a better overall defense in 2016. I liked Durkin's defense better. The more talented teams have learned to tear apart our gimmick defense. There is no way we should let FL score over 40 points or OSU score over 60 points. I'm sorry to say but we need both a new OC and DC.

01/02/2019 - 12:26pm This is how it was under…

This is how it was under most of the Carr's coaching years. Except Carr was lucky for the first half of his coaching career that OSU had Cooper as coach and Woodson was a superstar in '97. After RR was fired I was longing for the Carr years.

01/02/2019 - 12:19pm We still lack the talent and…

We still lack the talent and depth in the trenches. Our OLINE is improving but still not very good (we need good tackles, may be some of the young guys will pan out). Our DLINE has some talented players but most had injuries which shows there is a depth problem. Harbaugh will continue to gain talent but I think he needs a modern OC, since the modern offensive scheme has past him by, I don't think a run oriented RPO will end up beating good defenses. Given only 4 spots I doubt a weaker B1G will make the playoffs. OSU was elite but I think they will be slipping over the next few years and will no longer be elite, probably good like Michigan, so we could end  up winning B1G championships with 2 or 3 losses. Unless PSU becomes elite, I don't see the B1G championship making a 4 team playoffs. I think the playoffs will be expanded to 8 in a few years, so even a good B1G team with 8 or more wins will make the playoffs.

01/02/2019 - 12:01pm Well, hopefully Harbaugh can…

Well, hopefully Harbaugh can start beating OSU and win some B1G championships and make the playoffs, especially when they get expanded to 8 games. I don't see us winning that many NC but we could have that one lucky year like '97 in the future. But I will be OK with finishing with 9-11 wins most seasons, getting back to being .500 with OSU and beating MSU most years. This would be much better than going sub .500 like we did with RR and Hoke. Those were true BPONE years.

01/02/2019 - 11:54am Harbaugh realizes this…

Harbaugh realizes this himself. There is no way he is going to compete with the top teams. Harbaugh will become bored and will eventually head back to the NFL.

Bo would have blown a gasket if any player were to sit out a game that was not due to an injury.

01/01/2019 - 8:57pm LOL, JH is a million times…

LOL, JH is a million times better than RR!  I blame RR the most for destroying our football program.

01/01/2019 - 6:55pm Meyer dream job was to coach…

Meyer dream job was to coach ND. He said he would have loved to coach Michigan as well. I guess our coaching job just came up at the wrong time. I think Miles would have done a better job than RR and Hoke but we would probably be in the 9 to 10 win seasons with Miles but for a longer time period.

01/01/2019 - 6:50pm The title to your message…

The title to your message had me wondering if the NCAA wants to brink back the BCS bowl with only the top two teams playing.

01/01/2019 - 6:33pm I've yet to see this so…

I've yet to see this so called wide-open game plan. If it exist it is always way back in the playbook and never used for some reason?

12/31/2018 - 11:08pm I don't think Harbaugh is…

I don't think Harbaugh is going to tell us about any changes. Only time will tell.

12/31/2018 - 8:42pm There are quite a few team…

There are quite a few team members and a few coaches on this blog. They do not reply much but would not surprise me if Shea posts his comments here as aka MK.

12/30/2018 - 11:58pm Even though Shula was not…

Even though Shula was not that good of a coach, he was a great recruiter. Alabama was stacked with talent when Saban came walking in. I'm surprised he did not do better the first year. But his 12-0 season were all Shula recruits and that got the big recruiting years started which just fed back into a continuous success on the field and in recruiting loop. That is why that 2016 loss to OSU, when we had the game won could have started one of these success loops a lot sooner for Harbaugh. Too bad but he just needs more time now.

12/30/2018 - 11:40pm Harbaugh does not have elite…

Harbaugh does not have elite talent and depth to compete with elite teams. At least he is beating the teams in which he has more talent than and split games with teams with equal talent like PSU and in some sense WI. I hated the RR and Hoke years where we would often lose to team less talented. It was no fun when I drove 1000 miles to watch Toledo beat us at home or Wisconsin come into the big house and beat us like a drum. I think Harbaugh will continue to add quality talent and depth for the team to compete with the elite teams, even thought it may take a few more years. One thing that may help us out, is if the playoffs get expanded to 8 teams.

12/30/2018 - 11:26pm But MSU will have their 3-9…

But MSU will have their 3-9 or some other sub .500 season every 3rd season. This blog would really turn ugly if Harbaugh has a sub .500 season.

Who knows, Dax may be our next Woodson.

12/30/2018 - 11:00pm As Michigan fans our…

As Michigan fans our expectations are set way too high. We are back to the Carr years, post his NC. I think it will take a few more years before Harbaugh gains the talent and depth to compete with the big boys. I don't think OSU is one of these elite teams, so hopefully Harbaugh can start beating OSU. I just  hope Harbaugh does not leave for the NFL in the next 5 years.

12/30/2018 - 8:09pm The lions could have been in…

The lions could have been in the playoff race if Mathew did not have a few bad games.  They should have beaten the Jets and 49ers. I think if Matt did not throw the pick 6 against Chicago at home on T-day, we have won. Even though they finished 6-10, they should have been 9-7. I guess I'm more optimistic about the Lions being in playoff contention next season.

12/30/2018 - 8:03pm I was only 6 and was…

I was only 6 and was strictly a Michigan fan back then. So I don't remember that game. But I do remember watching the 5-0 Dallas playoff loss at my Grandparents house, with My Dad, Grandfather and 3 other uncles. I'd have to say I did not get interested in following the Lions until I was 8.

12/30/2018 - 6:56pm It is pretty impressive to…

It is pretty impressive to beat GB on the road and to shut them out 31-0. That must be some kind of record, given Detroit's dismal road game record at GB.

12/30/2018 - 2:14am Hate to say it but I was…

Hate to say it but I was hoping Brown would have been hired as a HC somewhere else. Good teams are learning how to defeat his pressure defense. But when there is no pressure, which is usually the case with good OL, our secondary gets torched going man to man. May be we really don't have the lock down secondary that is needed for his defense and we may never have such a secondary. Especially when teams are using quick pass slants to destroy us. Overall, Durkins' defenses were much more sound and better than Brown's, especially against bigger and faster teams. It will be interesting to see what way Harbaugh goes. I'm sure Harbaugh does not like defenses that give up a bunch of yards and points like our D has done lately. Next season will not be much better for us under Brown's blitzing system. I think we lose a lot of talent and teams will be torching us. I thought the offense would just score more points but I'm not sure that will happen after watching how they played against a meh Florida defense.

12/30/2018 - 2:00am Harbaugh has brought us back…

Harbaugh has brought us back to the Carr level (minus the one year with a special player like Charles and how everything fell in place), which is much better than the RR and Hoke years. I don't think Pep was capable of designing plays, others than the ones we have been running all season. Harbaugh needs to hire the best modern OC out there and let him design the offense and call most of the plays. It seems like we will have a lot of talent on offense and will need to find a go to back. A lot Michigan fans are unrealistic in goals. There is no way Michigan is even close to the top teams in college football. May be over time Harbaugh can recruit and build a team that may one day challenge the elite teams but it may be several years away. The only thing I don't like to see is how the team has fallen off at the end of the last two seasons. I like to see the team improve throughout the season and not peak in October and fall off in November and during the bowl game.
