I don't know it I'd say he's trashing him.  What Mattison did was unprecidented so it probably does warrant some criticism.  I'm personally happy for him if that's what he wanted to do.  I wouldn't criticism him for it, but we don't know the circumstances.  Maybe Mattison was mentor to him and he never said goodbye or something and he's hurt, who knows.

Maine, you may wish to research your team a bit better. The teary-eyed, wound-licking assistant referred to in the article also coaches safeties.

Meyer knew it was his last "Game". He could have and should have made it 71. Not that he will not be a Buckeye legend forever but if he had done that he would be a Buckeye god.

I'm mocking UM as a whole. Not just their defense. Karan Higdon guaranteeing victory prior to the Game was stupid on his part and gave our guys bulletin board material and boy did they use it in the worst way. If Partridge really is still feeling shame to this day about that loss all I can say is good. Everybody wearing the Maize and Blue failed in spectacular fashion that day and Winovich just made it look even worse with his "Mirage" comments later on. And as far as the defense goes that was Don Brown's defense, not Mattison's. Last I checked Mattison was only responsible for the defensive line last season. The secondary was the biggest problem for Michigan in that game (Brandon Watson in particular) as well as Devin Bush leaving the game.

MaineStrength's picture

You're talking about someone "running their mouth" while you do the same.  Talking by the other team has long been a part of this game.  It happened the other way around too.  Terry Glenn also did some talking of his own only to lose the game after his words.  Sometimes the shoe is on the other foot.  I'd guess a lot of people use various strategies to motivate their team when they lose.  OSU did the same thing in the 90s.  It happens, it's human psychology.  But, it's a bit hypocritical to criticize UM for talking when OSU has done the same unless you're willing to criticize OSU for it as well.

HS
BrewstersMillions's picture

I was thinking about this the other day. How does Michigan and Harbaugh specifically change the narrative on this thing? 

Full disclosure, as a disciple of Urban Meyer, I fully expect Ryan Day to embrace the rivalry the same way. But in order for Michigan to gain any level of credibility, how do they make this thing a thing again? Let's say it happens (and it probably will in our lifetime) and Michigan wins this year. Jim improves to 1-4. What changes? In my mind nothing, OSU still owns them. Does he have to win what, the next 3 at least to be taken seriously in this rivalry again? which would simultaneously drop Ryan Day to 0-3 in The Game?

I don't think any of this happens, but that is how far this thing has fallen. If  Michigan actually pulls off a win next year, nothing changes.

Proudly dispensing unbridled arrogance since 1983.

HS

Does he have to win what, the next 3 at least to be taken seriously in this rivalry again?

I think you're putting too much stock into last year's game.  It's not as though a double OT loss and a 31-20 loss are crippling.  They've showed they can play with OSU.  All they have to do is show they can beat them.  They don't have beat OSU the majority of the time to be "in the rivalry again", they just have to make the games close and win sometimes.

Ok, you do realize after last year's shellacking Florida proceeded to do the same to you guys in the Bowl game right? I sense a pattern here. 3 out of Harbaugh's 4 losses to OSU now have been double-digit losses (with the biggest deficit coming in his first season in the Big House of all places). When it comes to the Rivalry that's a lot of futility.

HS
BrewstersMillions's picture

And I don't think you are putting enough stock into it. It was a beat down of historic proportions that was the product of evolution. Ohio State is a superior football being right now and last November showed that. It was at best Meyers second worst team and by far it's most inconsistent. Harbaugh marched out a lineup of his players, his scheme, his Quarterback and they received the worst beating in the rivalry's history. It demonstrates your absolute best option at coach's short comings in the most extreme way. Heavy Man with no pressure and an offensive scheme that regularly uses a fullback? It's 2019. The fact that your guy marched that into a battle against OSU tells me everything I need to know.

CowCat's picture

As a TTUN fan said in a call-in show, the "Jim doesn't have his players yet" excuse is nonsense. By far the majority of the players starting for them are Harbaugh recruits.

A big problem for them is their players are slow at key layers of their defense, like linebacker and safety. That can't be fixed in a year.

A big problem for them is their players are slow at key layers of their defense, like linebacker and safety.

Their LBs last year were Devin Bush, who projects in the first round of the draft and Khaleke Hudson, who I'm sure will also test well in the combine.  

That can't be fixed in a year.

Tbf Bush was hurt for the majority of the second half of the Game last year (which was when OSU started scoring points at will on almost every series). I think losing him may have contributed to their defensive meltdown in a lot of ways (he was essentially the QB of their defense).

I can't blame him for feeling betrayed by his fellow coaches but in his line of work coaches move all the time. Moving to your most hated opponent takes it to another level and we've feel the same if Urban rehires at Scum.

Please, Coach Partridge, just grab a large glass of "Shut the fuck up", sit back and just wait for the inevitable pounding your Michigan Men will be taking, again, in AA .....

What irony? scUM players and coaches are the ones doing all the shit talking right now. OSU is quietly going about their business in fall camp getting ready for the 2019 season. You think anybody in Columbus really gives a damn about what a bitter low-level assistant coach thinks about last year's loss much less Mattison and Washington? So Mattison referred to your guys as "up north." He's an OSU coach now. That's kind of an unofficial requirement among our coaching staff to never refer to our rivals by name. If your players and coaches are that easily triggered by it it's going to lead to more stupid bulletin board comments like both Charles Woodson and Karan Higdon guaranteeing a victory over OSU again (which I hope happens at this point, it will give us the fire to walk into the Big House and drop 70 next season lol).

Coach talk always kills me. What else is he going to say? What gets me is he is going to do better and work harder. That means to me he was a slacker last year if he didn't do his best. Franklin another one with his BS after this season. No more cell phones in meetings again that shouldn't been allowed from the get go that falls on the coach's not the players. Then again their not elite.

As a UM fan I have no hard feelings for them.  I feel like GMatt made a business decision for more money and a better position and Washington went back home.  At the same time I love to see the fire from Partridge.  I think this makes the games more interesting.

I thought the same thing when Mattison and Washington joined the staff. It's one thing to start at Rival A, make a few stops and wind up at Rival B. Going directly from A to B? That's going to be an issue. How many coaches leave Auburn and go directly to Alabama? Texas to Oklahoma or Texas A&M? 

HS
CowCat's picture

I agree with you about how sudden the coaching migration was. But I don't think it will be a widespread trend. 

Al Washington is returning home. He likely would have taken an OSU job in the first place if one was open. Greg Mattison was basically demoted at UM and wanted better. Ryan Day basically cleared house on the defense, apart from LJSR. The opportunity to build something at TOSU has to be tantalizing to any established coach.

blu.fan's picture

Don't have a whole lot to say, but will comment briefly, because some will expect it, as I am a known Michigan partisan in these parts.

  1. Any real Michigan fan is salty. The record vs. OSU downright sucks. Nothing else to say.
  2. Agree with Partridge that it sucks for Mattison to go to OSU. Having said that, Harbaugh noted the obvious:  how can you deny someone such a huge salary increase, plus greater responsibility? It sucks, but is life. You can do a lot with $1.1 million. I also think it stuck in Mattison's craw not to be the defensive coordinator. Despite the record vs. OSU, I (almost) am completely fine with Don Brown as DC (and not G. Mattison). I think Brown is making some needed changes vs. the likes of OSU. We shall see.
  3. Washington going to OSU is not surprising. It sucks too, but don't blame Day or Washington. Move on.
  4. I have said, and will continue to say, that it makes no sense to say a doggone thing (as a Michigan fan) about OSU until you actually win a football game vs. OSU. Until then, just shut up and buck up. So I completely agree with Partridge's sentiments, but kind of wish he kept them to himself. I have made a vow never to predict a Michigan win, until it actually happens, and happens more than once.
  5. On the other hand . . . regarding Partridge and his comments, I don't know exactly what you do with reporters. What do you do if you are point blank asked a provocative question? Tressel was a master at lots of verbiage and saying nothing. Urban, less so (in the Fall debacle with press coverage about his assistant coach and the coach's wife.) I think Harbaugh has mostly kept his mouth shut. I mostly wish Partridge had just shut up, but it isn't all bad to wear your heart on your sleeve.

What a dumb ass coach. That’s great supply us with bulletin board material. He’s as big of a psycho as Hairball. Keep opening your punk as bitch mouth moron. Coaches don’t shoot off their mouths about an opponent. Bush and Hudson were good LB’s because of Al Washington, not Partridge in a pear tree. He has the same mentality as Hairball, psychotic. If he is the top recruiter in the Big 10, wonder why we have never heard of him, until he ran his idiotic, moronic and asinine mouth. You have to bite you tongue till it bleeds dumb ass!!!

I haven't been able to be on here much recently, so I don't know if this was posted in the past week or so, but to add to Michigan fan's misery, are the following.

1. Their spring "game" . It's a practice, with a very short scrimmage sometime late during the event.  So people get to pay to watch a practice this weekend

2. Because it's a practice and not a game, BTN has declined to broadcast it. So the only way to watch this practice is to online stream. 

3. Parking lots around the stadium will open at noon. The practice starts at 5pm. U/M has put out statements that there is to be no tailgating in the parking lots. 

In five years, U/M and Harbaugh have managed to take a spring game, hype it to hell the first year, TV, band, music, etc. and then water it down , and create so much disinterest in it due to the team's performance and their lack of catering to fans that it is almost non existent. Long time U/M fans are pissed off and I'm between feeling some sympathy for them and laughing hysterically.

Well incase you haven’t figured it out yet, Hairball thinks he is the smartest kid in the room where ever he is at. The guy has pulled more dipshit moves and tried more weird crap than any coach in College Football. He still can’t beat a school with equal talent, he still can’t get the most out of his players and the big one he continues to get his ass kicked by Ohio State every year. Now he has assistants making big boy comments whike they are a 2nd teir program. Maybe time to stop taking trips to Europe, stop having practice in Florida and stop trashing tradition like the Spring Game you Idiot! Try coaching a little bit you moron!
