Doing pretty well over at MSU...
Actually, the program is in a much more stable place than it was a few years ago. Several great recruiting classes, we have talent on this team...just no one to develop it.
After RR last class graduated we had like 4 scholarship OL on the team, unacceptable. Jim, John, Miles, whoever comes in after hoke is fired at the end of this year will have a great deal of highly ranked recruits to develop and win with. That is something that just was not possible when RR and Hoke inherited the program...though their lack of developing their own classes makes this a moot point anyhow.
This team is perfectly set up for a coach that runs a pro style offense or even a passing spread offense to come in and be successful right away with the talent hoke has brought in.
We for sure had a terrible game, but give ND credit they are a good football team. I honestly believe they have a great chance of getting into the CFB playoff. Golson is twice the QB he was in his first season, and their LB's are legit. Jaylon Smith is an absolute freak.
Add into the mix we were down two starting DB's and a starting LB in an away game...it was a bad combination, especially in a road game to end a rivalry.
I stated last week on a UM forum that I thought there was the potential w would lose this game by 2 or 3 touchdowns...everyone laughed at me and said, "Hoke will never let that happen..." blah blah blah. Rational UM fans are few and far between even more so now days.
God you are so cool.
Ok, and over the span of time since the college game was invented UM has been better than OSU, I dont know about you but having the most wins in the history of a sport is a bit bigger than just a segment of time in said sport. When UM fans bring that up we get hammered for being "history homers," but every year all I hear is what our record is against team a or team b in the last 10-20 years. That is blatant hypocrisy...
So if they cant beat some of the worst UM teams in history, it looks better to lose to lets say alabama by 50 points...sure.
What was your record against UM the decade before that? If you are going to look at historical figures, you cannot just pick and choose time periods. The rivalry is obviously cyclical.
Ironic they "wanted a bigger challenge," yet they have lost to us 6 out of the last 8 years...
Nice try though haha.
Who the hell wants to see us play app state again? They could give those tix away and only have 100,000 in the stadium. It is really not that surprising...
You obviously do not know much about A2 police...and how much the loathe every student athlete...look at the history. They have never covered up, if anything they have pursued to the fullest extent of their power...
Total sucker punch, broke that guys jaw in three places...
Both of the bros LOVE UM...its MSC they did not care for...she gone.
We finally roll out all blue jerseys and this is what they come up with...holy shit I am going to have a coronary. The best helmet in sports should not be placed on top of this garbage.
He sure as hell doesn't, but G-Matt and Nuss do.
Illiteracy is a damn shame.
Its gonna be a rough year for the winged helmets on the road...ugh
I said, "You are coming off as jealous," not "Stop being jealous," or "You are just jealous." Please dont put words in my mouth.
Secondly, based on the fact peppers was regarded as the best or second best recruit in the nation by nearly every relevant recruiting source, and is the highest ranked recruit ANY B1G team has ever pulled in the modern recruiting era...there is probably a bit more expected of him than bosa or any of the other great recruits you mentioned.
And sorry, but you dont have anyone on your team that compares to peppers coming out of HS, for the reasons I listed above. Show me the player on your team that won NATIONAL HS DPOY...oh wait. You can argue that til you are blue in the face, but you are still wrong, so save the oxygen.
Again, not saying he will be all that...he could be a total bust, he hasnt played a down of football in college.
What michigan fan is pointing to that as a bright spot or something to hold on to? We lost the game, any fan who puts a loss on a pedestal is a complete moron. No one cares if it was close, no one cares if we had the chance to send it to overtime and beat ourselves throwing a pick. We lost, that is all that matters. There is nothing else to take from it, there is no moral victory.
You are right, after all you know a lot more about prospect scouting than pro football coaches like Herm Edwards, and Steve Mariucci...
Couldnt be the fact he A) either didnt give two rips about some dumb high school celebrity shootout all star extravaganza on espn 9 or B) they have a whole week to learn the play book and scheme if they are lucky.
You are coming off as jealous, just stop.
