|04/29/2018 - 4:30pm||Not "dumb" at all||
Intelligent. Yeah winning at ND is great. But, remember Florida last year? 4-8 Florida? Preseason ranks mean ZILCH. If we beat MSU, at MSU, to get to 7-1 or 8-0 then great. I'll take a win over msu midseason vs a close loss at nd because it matters how you FINISH not how you start.
So tired of the hype tribe. I'm a blue blood. Show me something real and on the road and I'll join the champ or bust train.
|04/29/2018 - 3:14pm||Agree||
Some of blind homers here are hilarious. Perpetual hype machine. For sure we will be better if everyone (expected to start) stays healthy. But so will msu. So will osu. Bottom line is we have to beat 1 or both to have a prayer of getting to b10 champ game.
We have NEVER been to even a b10 champ game folks! Pump the Damn brakes...
|04/29/2018 - 3:10pm||Not sure about that||
Again: Michigan needs to WIN an away game vs opponents with a pulse before crowning them ANYTHING or predicting a contender. Especially night games.
|04/29/2018 - 9:05am||To be contenders you have to win B10||
To win B10 you have to win B10 East.
To do this, we have to do something we haven't done in 15 years: beat osu and msu in same season.
And in 2003? It was at MSU and HOME to osu. As it ALWAYS should be. We've been utterly screwed by b10 schedule going on a decade it seems
|04/29/2018 - 8:57am||If we go 10-2||
With losses @msu and @osu it will be a solid year but par for the course with Harbaugh, my opinion. Shows me he can't win big road games and this might be the ceiling.
If we go 10-2 With a win at either msu or osu, then I'm more hopeful going forward and it was a good overall season.
Go 10-2 and somehow make B10 championship game? Great year but again...how did we do vs main rivals.
|04/29/2018 - 8:52am||Only way I will feel good is winning b10 road games||
In Oct-November. Especially night ones. Don't even have to win convincingly. Just win! One!
|04/29/2018 - 8:48am||Got to win on the road||
Against decent squads. No more excuses. Lost to some good teams on the road last season but overall this has been Achilles heel for Harbs.
Win important b10 games on road before ever uttering "contender".
|04/29/2018 - 8:45am||We will be improved no doubt||
But pump brakes on "contenders" talk. Lets win a meaningful ROAD game for once.
Sick of the hype. Lets be the unhype for once. No doubt this team will be better but I'm taking nothing as a certain W outside of 6 games this year.
|04/08/2018 - 11:35pm||The Perdue hit on Speight was dirty||
Watch the 3rd episode. Watch that play...in real time it is an egregious late hit that possibly changed parts of the season. The dude had no business doing it and should've been tossed from the game.
|04/08/2018 - 11:31pm||Seemed like the young dudes didn't mind.||
At one point they take control of the cameras and go around dorms pretending to be MTV cribs. I don't think this is the "beginning of the end" of JMFH but I do pray it's the beginning of the end of Michigan's entitlement mentality. B10 does not fear us. They hate us and our colors and logo and iconic helmets and Jordan brand sponsor. They hate us cuz they ain't us. Return in kind and beat these haters!
|04/08/2018 - 11:24pm||Ok, cool||
But he definitely doesn't play or act like a guy who ever had it made. He plays angry and has a constant motor, like he has something to prove every snap. Most of our defense plays like this, which is very enjoyable. If our o line was half as nasty and scrappy as the d line, we would've won 1-2 more games last year for sure.
|04/08/2018 - 2:29pm||Defense had dogs, dudes who were hungry and coachable||
Offense had guys like Speight who cares what idiots on Twitter think and who lazily does a one hand handoff only to fumble it away, only then to get reprimanded by Harbaugh.
Practice habits on offense seemed sloppy to me. Realize its an edited film but this just seems to come through.
|04/08/2018 - 2:11pm||People straight up disrespect the UM football brand||
Like, everywhere. And they relish it because of the past victories. Our warriors need to be reminded of this daily. Screw putting the Bunyan trophy out for a few days prior to a game vs state. I want a Damn wall plastered with D'Antonio's smug grin and quotes from all his wins over UM. There should be reminders everywhere about OSU and the flat out disrespect they have for "SCUM" and all their corny jokes. We need guys Frickin upset and focused.
|04/08/2018 - 2:04pm||My opinion is that I'd rather see major rivalry wins NOW||
Then chants about "having it better" or comments by Harbaugh before air force about "the 7th ranked Wolverines". That is a dumb, entitlement mentality.
Nobody in the B10 fears us, except Rutgers and UMD. That's a fact. Row-your-boat goober doesn't fear us, D'Antonioso at puke green doesn't fear us, Frickin IOWA doesn't fear us. Show up on the field. The motivation should be "nobody respects us". Saw a little of this vs Florida in first game. Defense made it personal.
|04/08/2018 - 1:57pm||We need d-o-g-s like winovich, gary||
Winovich wasn't heralded coming out of Pittsburgh...in fact during the show he notes he was "just a backup scout team TE" his first year. But he's tough, nasty in the trenches and gives all out effort.
Rashan is a beast who had all the hype but clearly has an NFL goal and demands greatness of himself.
We need men like this to get back to the top, both sides of the ball. No more entitlement.
|04/08/2018 - 1:57am||Michigan needs to show that dog, that chip||
No more entitlement on our side either. Realize you're middle of the pack but hungry as hell to establish greatness. Tired of the "most wins" intro and the "whooos got it better" chant. Lots of teams and fanbases do, indeed, got it better.
Other top B10 teams sure as hell don't fear us, and overall the awful teams just want to beat jim Harbaugh, because of his persona...
|04/08/2018 - 1:46am||Lol completely agree||
Like "tell this guy great td but also xyz"?! Seriously? Sorry, if you have to tell your QB to go focus and level set his wr, you might have issues at the position.
|04/08/2018 - 1:40am||Watched first 2 so far||
Harbaugh is so darn goofy. I'm sure he's a great offensive mind but really strange as a coach. Seems personable though. But can you win it all like that? It is clear he had tremendous patience with what he knew was a young squad.
|03/18/2018 - 2:53am||Dude has played & represented so well for this school||
He should rightfully be considered one of the better players to ever come out of UM. He's like bizzaro-brave Dirk nowitzki. He took a chance on college and it is paying off for all involved.
|03/18/2018 - 2:49am||I was in my car, returning home from mgm live outside dc||
Literally was expecting the worst, since down 2 with 4 sec left. Pulled up to my parking spot as the three was announced real time. Had to stop the car. Started screaming. Called my dad but he was asleep. Unbelievable finish. Something I'll remember forever. A great day in my fandom for sure. On par with trey Burke jumper vs Kansas.
|01/21/2018 - 11:05pm||Welcome Vince!||
We had a mayor down here in DC by same name so easy to remember.
|01/21/2018 - 11:02pm||Agree and Ben mason is a throwback||
A throwback type player who gets his job done, be it on special teams or as goal line pounder/td vulture.
Harbaugh has an eye for talent that fits his scheme.
|01/21/2018 - 10:26pm||Only the away jersey left||
So I got it for $13. Not a bad deal!
|01/13/2018 - 3:37pm||Lol agreed||
Instead of three yards and a cloud of dust, call it three fouls and a cloud of bricks.
|01/13/2018 - 3:31pm||Harbaugh has won at Sparty||
He's just presided over two horrible /inexplicable losses at home. Here's hoping he evens it up in 2018.
I think coach B's cool, reserved attitude towards msu gets under their skin even more.
|01/13/2018 - 3:26pm||Love it||
Will be even better to see these posts after UM football shuts up the crowd in 2018. Fingers crossed.
|01/13/2018 - 3:20pm||I'm tempted to crack something too||
But trying to finish a dry January. Big Michigan wins make it tougher tho!
|01/13/2018 - 2:23pm||Wow did not see this coming||
Lets go blue!!! Little brother is red faced right now
|01/11/2018 - 10:05pm||Lol agreed||
We played well but it wasn't an as kicking. And we squandered a record lead.
No more talk, agreed. Moral victories aren't in the record books.
|01/11/2018 - 9:39pm||The drought has been horrible||
The Damn conference has been run by jimmy d since darn near the 1800s...and Michigan rarely gets a fair schedule or shake. That's reality. If we ever make the b10 game, and jimmy d is still in power, I truly hope we the fans bring some signs or some towels (like barstool did to Goodell opening NFL night) to call out this guy.
|01/11/2018 - 9:36pm||We need a vocal leader||
Like...when was the last time we had a baker Mayfield type? A dude who everyone respected and wanted to go to battle for? I see O'Korn literally get smashed into ground intentional, late, in the rain vs msu, in front of refs (no call) and our o line does nothing. Nothing. Where are our warriors? Our swag? Why is our o line so non physical at point of attack at times?
|01/11/2018 - 9:32pm||I want to see some "fight" and scrap in this team||
Not in a dumb way...but play with swagger. When you fall down, get back up. When you are toe to toe with msu and 4th quarter looming, don't back down.
Ultimately, need QB to step up. Need a vocal leader out there. And need an o lineman to play with some pop.
Defense will be fine. We have guys like Chase and Rashan who don't back away from anything.
|01/09/2018 - 8:26am||They said Tua family moved||
From Hawaii to Alabama. Friends...that is BAG MEN and a booster backed move if I've ever heard of one.
|01/09/2018 - 12:53am||Can you seriously deny that refs impacted||
GA QB runs for yardage, gets tackled, after whistle Alabama player stands over him and literally pushes his head down in a clear unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. No call made. GA forced to pooch punt short while later.
|01/09/2018 - 12:49am||2 Starters at QB knocked out on late or excessive hits||
I posted about this after Wisconsin and about half the board called me a whiner. Bottom line is that our two best QBs were knocked out by late or excessive hits to the head and neck area and not a single flag thrown.
|01/08/2018 - 10:46pm||We've got to get a QB next season||
Someone, anyone. If Doyle can do it or kid from FL, start 'em right away. Pocket presence, toughness, basic accuracy. Nothing fancy. We need a Ford Focus not a Ferrari.
|01/08/2018 - 10:30pm||When will B10 commish retire or leave?||
|01/08/2018 - 10:29pm||Yep||
Big missed call. But, shouldn't be surprised with this guy / B10 crew.
|01/08/2018 - 4:42pm||This. Times 100.||
Lets just beat 2-3 rivals on the road please.
|01/07/2018 - 4:59pm||Hey Iran is in the World Cup||
And they dominated Asia to get there... Maybe their prediction getting closer to reality?
|01/07/2018 - 4:57pm||No doubt||
And we have a pool of 4 stars this year, all of whom show good potential. At least 6 of them by my count with potential for more.
|01/07/2018 - 4:54pm||Agreed||
And the fellas at Army bowl were impressive too. Should all be contributors.
|01/07/2018 - 4:46pm||Lmao||
I get that a five star is preferable. Excluding Gary, and hopefully Solomon/DPJ, the five star pick ups for Michigan in past decade have been hugely underwhelming. Contrast this with guys like Jeremy Gallon, Blake Countess, Mike Martin, etc.
|01/07/2018 - 12:26pm||Good point||
And may we never ever schedule them for first game of season again...at least while Saban reigns
|01/07/2018 - 12:18pm||Lol there's that MGoBlog snark||
Needed my daily fix.
|01/07/2018 - 10:44am||Agree||
I'm wondering if there's anything that maps this data/analysis back to coaches. Im sure there is. I.e. what has been D'Antonio's "miss rate" and how the heck can we emulate him, at least on those pieces that round out our classes or in the state of Ohio?
|01/07/2018 - 10:40am||Lol touche||
|01/07/2018 - 10:37am||So a program like Texas||
Is that just massive coaching and development error then? Or talent eval? Granted their recruiting level fell off a bit earlier this decade but they are in the "big 4" state of high school talent riches.
|01/07/2018 - 10:03am||Agree||
I'm pumped for this recruiting class. Because I'm NOT hearing too much about it on national level and I love that. We do better under the radar. No more hype, just get dudes with motors and chips on the shoulder. Love it. All three guys today looked guy. Go blue!
|01/07/2018 - 12:09am||He dominated in the same fashion though||
Doesn't have the same ceiling (though who truly knows) but all I'm saying...he dominated like Gary did the UA game 3 years ago. Man against boys. These "boys" are evaluated as 4 and 5 star o line recruits. Hutch dominated them. In a real game. Do I think he's Gary? No...but this performance was on par. And future is blazing bright.
