You are 100% correct that Michigan is a step behind OSU right now.  Even if Michigan State didn't have so many injuries, I think Michigan is still VERY close, if not even with them just because the defense is so good. 

If Michigan keeps playing and improving like they are currently, The Game will be VERY fun.

Hoke was 34-38 at Ball State, 13-12 at San Diego State and 31-20 at Michigan

Harbaugh took a horrible Stanford team and made them better every year until they turned into a powerhouse. What Hoke did at Ball State and SDST doesn't even compare to what Harbaugh did at Stanford.    

Harbaugh's Stanford teams and players got better every single year in a major conference. Hoke's (teams and players) got worse every year in a major conference.  I think it's pretty safe to say Harbuagh is better and will be better than either of the previous two Michigan coaches. You can see how the team is playing compared to last season to notice that it's all coaching.

I think Harbaugh's formations are simple, but the wrinkles and motions he adds in confuse the defense and make his offensive system more complex than what it looks like from the stands or TV

Comment 28 Sep 2015

I think you have to look at 1) who is coaching the team now and 2) how they are playing

Harbaugh is FAR better than RR or Hoke, the defense is VERY good and the offense is well above where they were last year, but still need to improve. Michigan fans should be excited with how the team is starting off the season. You can see clear differences in their play and it's very encouraging. 

Comment 28 Sep 2015

It's a much improved and clearly a better coached team.  Ohio State is still, obviously, better, but anything can happen during The Game. You gotta give OSU the advantage, but if Michigan keeps this type of play up (and improving on offense), it could be a very great game in November.

Comment 04 Sep 2015

one of those was a miscommunication w/ a true freshman WR, but the other two were just bad.  Hopefully he'll figure it out and this was just a fluke game for him.

Comment 04 Sep 2015

I saw some stuff I really liked, I saw some stuff I really didn't...I didn't expect Ruddock to be horrible based on his 2014 season, so I'm not writing him off yet.  Deveon Smith's vision seemed horrible, but I'm fairly pleased w/ the D, especially Peppers...

I have joined here, not to talk crap (although some..frustration we'll call it...has slipped out), but to see the rivals thoughts on topics, who you're going after in the recruiting world, etc.  For the most part you guys are pretty cool and fairly level headed.  For the most part MGo is as well, but there's also dumb people that talk too much, but you'll find those guys everywhere on the interwebs

Henry and Hurst are both very good and Wormley will probably slide between SDE and DT now.  Hurts our depth for sure, but there's still talent there

Comment 31 Jul 2015

He obviously does not have the 3 NTs, but he can obviously recruit, find and develop talent, his assistants are second to none (I'll need to go back, but I think he has 5 former assistants that are now head coaches in the NFL and college) and he's had proven results at EVERY stop he's made - most of those teams have been major remodeling projects. 

Comment 01 Jul 2015

I don't think that's true at all.  You don't have to care about something you're commenting on.  Heck, 90% of the comments on the Graham Rahal visits the Woody Hayes Center are about QBs w/ their shirts off.  I can guarantee more than 90% of people on this site have never heard of Graham Rahal or care about INDYCAR, but the comments are still there.

Comment 20 Jun 2015

I would love for Michigan and Ohio State to determine the B1G title nearly every year, but not at the risk of losing "The Game"...I don't want them to play twice per year either..just once..the final game in November

Comment 19 Jun 2015

Dantonio a better coach than Harbaugh? No doubt he's a great coach, but Harbaugh has been very successful at both the college and pro levels and was/is the most sought after coach in the game, at both levels...time will tell.

I do think the B1G East will quickly become the #1 conference (even over SEC West) in the nation b/c of OSU, Michigan, MSU and PSU
