Barrett & the skill players are only going to be as effective as the O-line allows. We're going to have a very good/bad season almost solely based on this. The weapons are there. We'll see what Wariner can do.

Pretty much only concern I have is the o line. That has contributed to the offensive woes most. Defense is doing a GOOD job defending a team that is hard to keep from the endzone. Have great glimpses on the backs, samuel & wilson are going to be a ton of fun. You cannot judge the defensive line off Navy & they are still holding their own.

JT is going to make mistakes. Adding line woes on top of that is the biggest problem here.

Torn on this. Part of me attributes this to him being injury prone & the staff intentionally healing as much as possible. 

Still, two weeks from game time and our starting QB isn't getting reps. 

(Edit: Past that, the closer the opener gets with no Xbrax, the more I believe there isn't much faith in his backups)

Guess I'm indifferent to rooting for or against Michigan being better. Understand the viewpoint on both ends. I guess, for me, it comes down to this:

1) I lived through the 90's. While both teams we're playing @ peaks, I dont feel any better about the losses. Would I dislike the losses more if we lost to worse teams? Maybe in the moment but the loss would still end up a loss.

2) This is Michigan football. At some point, they'll be right back in things and a perennial power. Whether it be the institution, history or sheer money, they'll get it right eventually. You had better believe I won't be saying 'Gee, it sucks we lost but I'm so happy it was to a great Michigan team,' whenever that inevitable heartbreak loss happens.

3) There haven't been enough tears from some of my northern friends (who proclaimed Hokey Pokey was the answer and yada yada), to satisfy me yet.

Right now, I'll enjoy the mess up there ... think back on how irate I was after spoiled seasons & wait for the next 10 yr war, b/c it will absolutely come back around eventually.

There aren't many UM fan/alumni on this board. The ppl who are, tend to be respectful & intelligent. Appreciate your insight and decorum here, something I hope translates from this site, there.

3 years of trolling? Oh my. "I'll teach 'em. I shall devote idiotic amounts of time to new names/emails!" This is kinda hilarious (and disturbing). Look forward to your next endeavor @ the library with a new ip.

I see Coach around once a week. A few points:

1) That punchline you gave hime is rated g, compared to some of the things said to him.

2) He doesn't shy away from knowing there are a few games in the series we should have won & puts it on himself.

3) He and around 30 other former coaches have tried to get to a playoff/edit the BCS since its inception.  Those guys absolutely have a hand in the final push.

4) One of the more thoughtful person(s) I have ever met.

5) I run a construction division. There are 20 year old guys who couldn't hold a candle to the level of activity this man has. He never stops.

6) He handed the Pitt job to Luke on a silver platter. The story on how Fick screwed that up is hilarious.

I actually do remember this from some of my Michigan friends when he was hired. There was absolutely nothing spectacular about his resume and there still isn't.

Awesome. This takes me back to a very lucky time in my youth. Got to be on that field for the 97 season, go to movies with the team (before carriage place became the dollar movies) & get to know these guys a little. Its unfortunate no title came out of these years. More than 15 years has passed and that team is still the most impressive specimen of talent I have ever seen. 

Just talked to Coop the other day and Joe came up. Would be interested to know if he keeps in contact with Walt still.

Great read.

I've been told Tress is preparing/working on a tell all book, in regards to his time @ OSU. Wasn't described to me as flattering & hope it isn't the case.

Comment 19 May 2014
Hope we extend that offer real soon. On a unrelated note, congrats and well ... condolences to Fickell on the news of twins incoming. Oh my.

As the staff has said, the upgrade will allow them to do much more and that is a great thing. Overall, I love the new site. Being unable to force desktop view is going to be hard to get used to but I'm going to give it time and adjust.

Love the new streamline design and good to know the updates allows staff to do more. I'm hoping that I'll be able to bypass the mobile view at some point but oh well if not. I'm so used to using desktop view for every single site I use that not being able to just zoom in and out is going to have me cursing for quite some time.
