I hardly ever comment on this site any more, but logged in just to say "Hear, Hear". Well said! The guys at 11W do much better than any sports channel or magazine out there...and in their spare time, for free. They deserve to be appreciated, and I for one do.

Same issue here. However, the cover (banner) can be swiped to the right to check out the parts that are cut off in the original screen. Rest of the site (paging down) works great and all the stuff that's on the right in the desktop version (poll, buckshots, forum topics) appears at the bottom. FWIW, I also access 11W through the Flipboard app and it works great (being doing so for ages) - the only thing is no banner appears when going through Flipboard, only the posts.

Wow, just wow! Not only did mom kick MM out of her house, but Mark Dantonio too. Wonder what Coach D did. Story in the link above.

"Last night, Malik and his mother had a falling out over his decision to attend Michigan State. When Malik informed his parents that he would attend MIchigan State against their wishes, his mother threw him out of the house. Malikt welcome at his announcement today.

I’m told this situation started during Malik’s official visit to Michigan State. While at Michigan State, according to Malik’s mother, Mark Dantonio approached Malik in an “inappropriate manner” while his mother was not present. This apparently angered his parents and ruined their portion of the official in East Lansing. The “in-home” visit was suppose to address the situation in East Lansing but only inflamed the feud and cause Malik’s mother to throw Dantonio out of the house."

Awesome piece...and you hit the nail on the head. Fuck _ichigan a thousand times, stomp em, and wrench their guts out.

I'm nervous because this will be their bowl game, and I'll enjoy it only if we beat them, and if we win big, that'll be icing on the cake. Remember the first game of the season when we went for 2 after TD's, I hope Urban was preparing for this game..."because we can't go for 3".

I agree. The way Rich Rod was treated by TSUN is a disgrace, he never had a chance.

Comment 26 Nov 2013

To quote from Johnny "Part of me hates to watch this. Michigan is beset by injury, incompetence, and a coaching staff that seems utterly baffled how to manage a team filled with directionless talent. They're supposed to be our eternal rivals dammit, not a poorly coached JV team.

Another part of me says screw that, this is what you get when you let hubris and nepotism catch up to you with little to back it up. Every single thing that Ohio State fans told Michigan fans would catch up with them in terms of coaching and personnel has in fact caught up with them..."


This sums up my feelings exactly. Never forget the 90's, and how they were going on about how this isn't even a rivalry any more!! Dantonio was correct "pride comes before the fall" Muck Fichigan!

I always liked and respected Coach Bruce. He was the one that followed Woody with that glorious (but unexpected) undefeated regular season in 1979 (almost had a national championship that Charles White ruined in the 4th quarter at the Rose Bowl).

The masses were restless that 1987 season with ol' "9-3' Earle, but I was shocked and saddened by the way he was fired. Jennings lost my respect that day, while I thought Rick Bay did the right thing.

It gladdened my heart to see the "Earle" headbands the players wore, Coach Bruce looked spiffy in that suit and Fedora (he'd never done that before) and I cried when I saw coach being lifted off the field by the players. It was a great day, and in my mind, a fitting end to the "old school" Woody era.

That's going to be one tough game coming up Saturday. I trust Matta will use this game as a learning experience and the Bucks will be ready.

"That’s my master’s degree from Ohio State,” Meyer said, chuckling! This is a direct quote from UFM during at today's press conference. 11W and the community isn't making it up.

In their (Mgoblog) latest post "This Week's Obsession: Extent of Panic", one poster stated:

"SO WHAT IS THE POINT OF CONTINUING DOWN THIS PATH?!?!?  NEW COACH.  HIRE TRESSEL!!"

Oh, the irony!! Their tears are delicious.

Comment 16 Oct 2013

Like you, I have respect for the Hawkeyes. Agree that it'll be a close game at the half but we'll put them away in the second half.

Comment 14 Oct 2013

+1 for Curtis. I lost my dad and know how difficult it is to focus on the here and now. Different people react differently, and I hope Curtis has taken the time to heal mentally.

Comment 13 Oct 2013

After watching TSUN implode yesterday, I was thinking the same thing. The next 10 year war is likely Urban vs. BOB.

Hackenberg is going to be good. Despite the scholarship reductions, BOB has his team ready to compete, proving that he's a good, if not outstanding coach. Think of what can be once PSU comes out at full strength.

TSUN will always be our rivals, but PSU is the one that will challenge us most years for the BIG East division championship.

Hit the nail on the head. Like it or not, style points matter. I get that you can't compare wins, but Baylor did better than us, and we beat SDSU, a team that lost last week to an FCS team, by "only" 35 points. We needed to win both games by 50+ points to look "national title caliber".

It's still early, but with our SOS, we better start winning big to control our own destiny, otherwise we'll be depending on the teams ahead of us to lose.
