lol we are consistently in the top 10 in class rankings
|12/17/2018 - 2:51pm||Could it just be that other…||
Could it just be that other teams have a similar number of transfers, and it seems like Michigan has more because that's who you pay attention to?
|12/17/2018 - 2:35pm||Players transfer out of…||
Players transfer out of every program (yes, even high-caliber former recruits). I don't think we have had an abnormally high amount of transfers, but I'm open to being proven wrong.
|12/17/2018 - 2:34pm||And this is why I don't…||
And this is why I don't really see it as a devastating loss.
Really sucks for depth, to be sure, but it's not like the dude was a game-changer while he was here. He was largely irrelevant.
|12/16/2018 - 7:07am||Spoiler alert- they'll be…||
Spoiler alert- they'll be just fine in recruiting and elsewhere.
|12/12/2018 - 8:22am||This is a sneakily tough…||
This is a sneakily tough schedule. Everyone was worried about the schedule going into this year, but I think 2019 may be tougher.
Army is always tough. @Wisconsin and @PSU will be tough, though I think Wisconsin won't quite be back at the levels we're used to, and PSU has likely already passed its peak under Franklin.
Add in ND, MSU, and OSU, and nearly half of the schedule looks like a tossup right now.
Edit: and I didn't even catch Iowa. Damn, 2019, you scary.
|12/10/2018 - 10:14am||I wouldn't have been shocked…||
I wouldn't have been shocked. OSU under Meyer had historical levels of success. It's kind of hard to match that, particularly when you're inheriting a mess of a program like Harbaugh did. OSU has lost a TOTAL of 9 games under Urban Meyer in 7 years. We are just not at that level. We are a hell of a lot closer than we were before Harbaugh got here, though.
And it's not like we have been outclassed every year. We pretty much did win in 2016, if not for some creative reffing.
|12/10/2018 - 8:17am||I get that the OSU game…||
I get that the OSU game sucked, but I'm increasingly annoyed at Brian and a lot of the posters here with your "BPONE" bullshit.
The football team still hasn't won a conference title. That sucks. But the reality is that Harbaugh has either pretty much met or exceeded expectations for the team 3 of the 4 years he's been here. Even 2017 was about right for expectations heading into the year, and that's after we had a QB carousel due to injury. The football team is better now than it has been since probably 2006, and looks to remain good-to-great for the foreseeable future. We've been a top 10 team in 3 of 4 years with Harbaugh at the helm. Not a lot of teams can say that in the last 4 years.
Basically, quit yer bitching. The sky is not falling.
|12/05/2018 - 9:49am||This is a ridiculous premise…||
This is a ridiculous premise, but hell, football season is effectively over so why not entertain it?
2015: Result would have been the same. That OSU squad was just flat out more talented. And pissed off.
2016: Likely UM win.
2017: OSU wins. Same reason as 2015.
2018: Likely OSU win. That OSU team is imperfect, but Urban had them playing ridiculous ball. UM had the perceived upper hand going into the game, but unless some major flaws in the defensive gameplan were addressed, we weren't going to win with the way their offense was playing that day. And even then, I'm not sure we could have stopped them frequently enough.
So, to your point, even if we had Urbz as coach the last 4 years going against Urbz (OSU version), we likely wouldn't be in a much better position. That said, it's impossible to know how recruiting would have changed over those years, so we have to assume that everything except coaching during the games would be the same.
|12/02/2018 - 6:21pm||To be fair, it must be…||
To be fair, it must be pretty rare to find someone who actually wants to be at Rutgers.
|12/02/2018 - 6:15pm||Just pull out the last…||
Just pull out the last couple of previews for playing UF and change some words around. What's so hard about that?
|12/02/2018 - 6:09pm||Sure, and we can down vote…||
Sure, and we can down vote you for your dumbass opinions
|12/01/2018 - 8:54pm||That was a stupid,…||
That was a stupid, inconsequential game in which both teams were complete trash.
|12/01/2018 - 8:53pm||..... becoming???||
|11/26/2018 - 7:12am||Thanks for posting this - I…||
Thanks for posting this - I meant to look this up myself - I knew the list of programs with 10+ wins 3 of the last 4 years couldn't be too long
|11/24/2018 - 6:10pm||You got any names? I'd be…||
You got any names? I'd be glad to hear them.
How many other teams have won 10 or more games 3 of the last 4 years? Not many.
Sure, we haven't won the conference. Turns out, it's pretty fucking hard to do that when you're in it with OSU led by Meyer, not to mention PSU and MSU.
|11/24/2018 - 6:08pm||I don't even think that's…||
I don't even think that's true. In 2016 we were absolutely one of the best 4 teams in the country and came a literal inch short from a probable playoff berth.
This year we shit the bed in an important game but can probably play with most teams in the country. We haven't hit the ceiling yet.
|11/24/2018 - 5:51pm||Every big game?
This is the…
Every big game?
This is the problem. The goalposts are constantly moving. MSU-PSU-Wisconsin was a gauntlet that we passed with flying colors. 2016 and 2015 featured multiple big games we performed well in.
We just haven't beaten OSU. Yeah, that sucks. But let's just be realistic about it. OSU is the 2nd best program in the country. We aren't there yet. We are much closer than we were before Harbaugh got here, though.
|11/24/2018 - 5:47pm||Our fanbase will be better…||
Our fanbase will be better off without people like you in it anyway.
|11/24/2018 - 5:45pm||Michigan cannot…||
Michigan cannot realistically hire a better coach than Harbaugh.
Sure, maybe we could pay someone less money to do marginally worse, but so what? Harbaugh is the best coach we can get. He's won 10 games in 3 of his 4 seasons. Carr didn't even do that. Michigan is competitive again.
Unfortunately, OSU is just at a historic high. Firing a very good coach isn't going to fix any problems.
|11/24/2018 - 5:28pm||That game really sucked.
That game really sucked.
Anyone who even implies Harbaugh should be fired is a fucking moron.
|11/24/2018 - 5:02pm||Well, 1st half of ND and all…||
Well, 1st half of ND and all of the OSU game
|11/24/2018 - 9:18am||Could have just been a…||
Could have just been a stinger. Really painful for a few hours, but easy to come back from
|11/23/2018 - 10:34pm||... heard what?||
... heard what?
|11/23/2018 - 9:33pm||Judging from how he looked…||
Judging from how he looked coming off the field, it was definitely a concussion, and a bad one. He didn't know where he was for a while
|11/18/2018 - 11:55am||Because Brian has any say…||
Because Brian has any say whatsoever in this lol
|11/17/2018 - 9:38pm||Luckily for us, OSUs defense…||
Luckily for us, OSUs defense is pure trash
|11/08/2018 - 9:04am||Wrap Shea in bubble wrap…||
Wrap Shea in bubble wrap until OSU. I'm terrified that we won't get to the game with a healthy QB yet again.
|11/07/2018 - 9:45am||Kind of a weird exchange. …||
Kind of a weird exchange. Why would you ask whether he knew but wouldn't tell?
|11/04/2018 - 6:29pm||(No subject)||

So there's this team called Ohio State that we haven't beaten in Columbus since Moby Dick was a minnow...
|11/04/2018 - 8:37am||Spoilers, man||
|11/03/2018 - 9:20am||It's a moot point, because…||
It's a moot point, because they won't lose.

If Bama loses, they'll go all the way down to #2
|11/01/2018 - 2:24pm||After?? Man, you guys were…||
After?? Man, you guys were way behind.
|11/01/2018 - 9:11am||Well now that we've covered…||
Well now that we've covered the weather, is this the biggest game of Harbaugh's career??
|10/30/2018 - 7:25pm||No one's going to mention…||
No one's going to mention Bench Mason a.k.a. Hammering Panda 2.0?
|10/29/2018 - 2:28pm||We scored more points on…||
We scored more points on them than PSU, and generally looked much better against them than PSU. It's not even like this was a bad performance, really. We Tresselballed them to death.
|10/29/2018 - 1:11pm||The only thing I'm really…||
The only thing I'm really worried about in this game is KJ Hamler getting loose on our secondary. He can do some damage. But McSorley has to get him the ball, and his passing has been suspect this year.
I think Michigan is going to be able to disrupt their offense all game, and I think by the 2nd half we will be running it down their throats.
|10/28/2018 - 9:15am||Member when people thought…||
Member when people thought the defense was a letdown after 4 games tho

Higdon is gonna tear this PSU defense up. They are no good against the run

Marcus Ray wants you to talk about Marcus Ray.
That pretty much is it.

Sure, let's not give any credit to the team until they win a national title.
|10/26/2018 - 12:51pm||The pride comes before the…||
The pride comes before the complete collapse of the program?
|10/26/2018 - 11:21am||They gon' lose.||
They gon' lose.
|10/26/2018 - 10:56am||I would prefer PSU win this…||
I would prefer PSU win this weekend to make our (potential) win over them look better. MSU can lose by 50 for the rest of the season for all I'm concerned.
Aside from that, I'm rooting against Clemson and Oklahoma.
|10/25/2018 - 3:13pm||Quite possibly, witnessing…||
Quite possibly, witnessing the birth of my twins.
|10/23/2018 - 10:32am||MSU matches up very poorly…||
MSU matches up very poorly with OSU. Their defense is very susceptible to the type of offense OSU runs.
MSU, meanwhile, lost their best weapon by far on offense, and Lewerke is apparently injured. I expect a blowout in favor of OSU.
|10/23/2018 - 10:29am||It depends on who comes out…||
It depends on who comes out of the West. If, say, Purdue or Northwestern end up winning the West, I could see ticket prices drop significantly.
Even Wisconsin might cause ticket prices to drop, because we've seen what happens when we play them.
|10/22/2018 - 12:47pm||The difference is that our…||
The difference is that our defense is actually good.
I'd be pretty comfortable projecting a win vs Purdue.
