Living on the boarder I can assure you that the smugness has never gone away from that fan base. Every year is the year, until it isn't.

The only thing to draw from this is Wisconsin is a really good team. I remember awhile ago when the home team lost to Purdue and USC in the regular season. We played Oregon in the rose bowl that year, a team that beat Purdue and USC. And we know how that turned out. Take the win and run, let the talking heads talk.

We are a running team, we have been a running team and we will be a running team. Like others have said the blowouts have had an impact on throwing the ball, defense and our punter have really giving us short fields to work from also impacts the deep ball and passing. JT has still had 4 or more passing tds on 3 of the 4 games so the yards aren't there but the production is. We did get a taste of the deep ball against Oklahoma so they do exist, but why do low % throws when the high % throws are there? One missed tackle on a short high % route and it's a TD, if it's a 5 yard gain because the guy gets tackled then it's still a positive.

This so much! We have so much talent coming in but it seems like folks are only excited about the next player. Truthfully we won't know how good any of these classes from any school are for another 3 years or so. I truly enjoyed watching some of these players for the first time (although at times it was hard to tell who is who).

Understand what you are saying but ... the offense is based off the run game and operates best when the run game operating at a high level. It sets up the passing game and keeps the chains moving. Zeke isn't a stopping the offense from excelling he is setting everyone else up. We are a run first team so we need a really good rb. I understand that folks want to see wr with 100 yards a game and the TE catch 3 tds a game. .that is not necessarily what the game plan is. If it happens then it happens but it all begins with a quality RB to very things started.

Ask him how many conference championships he won at Stanford then ask how many Stanford has won since he left. And right now Urban has the same number of super bowl championships as Harbaugh but had three more college football championships.

97 Rose Bowl is tough to beat for me but I would put the 2010 Rose and last year's Sugar bowl as equal close second. All very good wins that came at the right time for me.

There is more to being a QB than having a cannon for an arm, leadership (OVI aside) is one thing and to ignore his 2014 season would be a mistake. JT is more than capable of leading this team to the promise land again and his team mates seem to love him, what more need said?

Comment 01 Dec 2015

I will just say this, the 2014 season will just get sweeter for me as time goes on. Under Urban Meyer I have experienced some of the most satisfying wins I can remember. Beating bama, this years ttun game came at just the right time, I have enjoyed this run because I can remember the Copper years, always had talented teams but was always shy of greatness. We have greatness and I will always respect what it takes to make greatness, appreciate it when it happens because it can all be gone in a blink of an eye.

I also live in Northwest Ohio. And there are many, many ttun fans here, some I know well. As such I can say that we do not want and or need them amongst our ranks..most became *ichigan fans because every one else was a Buckeye fan. Yep, they just had that burning desire to be that guy. .there is also a sub set that can tell you the exact number of wins they have and why winning the "right" way is making it hard for them to compete. We do not need them nor do we want me.

He really seems to be getting better as the season goes on as well, Even if he isn't making he play himself he is always around the ball. Absolute beast this year!

Comment 23 Aug 2015
There were a lot of close games including the Sugar bowl. We tend to forget about that, and there was the turn overs issue that plagued is. Having said that the amount of points scored last season was scarry. Taking into account all the things the team went through the thing I will take away is just how improbable and special the season was. We will never see another like it.

I live in a small northern Ohio town and growing up everyone new my dad. Every where I would go they would ask me if I was his "Kid", it was annoying as a teenager but doesn't bother me now (I'm in my 40s and they still call me "Dave's Kid"). So I did a little play on words and came up with my username (Kid would have been to easy), avatar was just something cool that I liked.

Wow..hard to choose.

1. Have to go with Bo, Lloyd Carr was fired for basically having a "Bo" career (Carr did win 1/2 of a Natti) and while lewan is a lewang he will be a footnote in ttun history.

2. Prettyman gets the vote, I was born and raised in Stryker and this outrage cannot stand!

3. Desmond (and he should win the entire contest) what a douche, and I really, really think he enjoys being one.

4. Yost, my Michigan friends still talk about Yost, not as much as Harbaugh but they still talk about the "the impact he had on the game".

At the rate recruiting is going it would seem like we could be done with the 2016 class before the season starts. I know there are guys that are must takes no matter what but is there a possibility we could be full way before February? I have been following recruiting for awhile and I realize it is very fluid game but it seems like we could have verbals from most of the key targets before the season starts. So I guess my question is at what point do the staff become super selective or are we already there.

The difference in offense is really striking. Just watching the offensive line and how Boom and Saine had to fight for every yard while the line got no push. It does make you wonder what TP could have done in our current offense. But the defensive line for the 2010 rose bowl team was one of the best we have had. Very good group, my second favorite rose bowl.
