This actually isn't a bad idea for them. They'd be top of the news cycle and Leach has been a pretty good recruiter for his level. They wouldn't win championships but a 5 year Leach cycle might get them ready for an up and coming coach.

This performance comes off a bye week when those rotten-rat bastards were going to 'fix' their offense?!  They have NO offensive identity nor do they appear to have a clue how to fix their problems.  Their issues might not be fixable.  Go Bucks!  Screw Blue!

I don’t known how Harbaugh recovers from this one. The fact that they had 2 weeks to prepare is the most perplexing.  I don’t understand why so many in the media had them ranked so high considering what they lost on defense last year. I live outside Ann Arbor and to be honest most of my buddies that I talked to this week said they were going to get drilled.  It’s possible that the team has something to motivate them after being embarrassed but I think the Harbaugh thing is coming to an end.   They would be better off with Traitor Ed calling the plays.

This game was a turning point for me.  I'd been on the Harbwaaa4Life train, but after seeing clips of his postgame conference and the pain throughout that man's soul, damning him to a life sentence of firsthand involvement in That Shartshow Up North would be cruel and unusual punishment.  I'd finally be okay now if they just mercifully let him out to pasture.

TTUN has no run game and at best a work-in-progress at QB.  On Def. they aren't any better.  Wisky has a nice offense, especially run game, but they have no Pass Def. and it's hard to say how they'd be against a top run game.

That said, Wisky may be a tough out.

Meanwhile, in C-bus somebody forgot to wake the team up after they started meditating on Hoppy.  Had me scared there for 6-7min.

They're in really bad shape. Coaching is terrible- bad scheme after a bye week, constant timeouts early, no change in scheme. Offense is terrible- WRs are best players but are basically ignored, OC wants to play in space but formations have two TEs, no legit starting RB, bad QB. Defense is terrible- same scheme without regard to opponent, defensive line is MAC level. 

I knew Harbaugh was not a savior but I didn't realize he was worse than Hoke or Rodriguez. They've regressed in every phase of the game. He offers nothing. Literally nothing. If they fired him tomorrow and replaced him with one of the top 10-15 high school coaches in America they'd be a better team.

It is shocking to find how exposed he is as a terrible, terrible coach.

That Yahoo article is a great read. I had no idea about this when it happened:

Gattis’ early struggles should be pinned squarely on Harbaugh. The offseason coronation of Gattis as a great hire included these delicious details in a story in The Athletic – “There was no interview. No face-to-face meeting. No get-up-on-the-board-and-show-me-how-you-run-this session. Not even a tell-me-about-your-offensive-philosophy discussion.”

Harbaugh basically put the future of the program on a 20-minute phone conversation, which is a bit like getting engaged after the first drink on a first date. And he did it knowing that Nick Saban had an opportunity to promote Gattis to the same job and declined. That’s impulsive and reckless even by Harbaugh’s standards, and was begging for more skepticism from an athletic director and administration who’d already seen a pattern of bad hires and dysfunctional offenses.

The death-rattle utterances of the fanbase on MGOBLOG:

I can’t wait to hear Jim say stupid shit during his press conference. I’m sure he’ll look confused and disheveled. I’m so tired of this booger eating weirdo being the face of Michigan football. We pay this man 8MM per year to studder, make rap videos, and get blown the hell out. Enough already.

Feels like the players have given up. That is a bad sign. When players have no confidence in coaches - we are in trouble.

Not sure why anyone is surprised about Don Brown's impotence. He has been a limp dick against good teams since he got here.

Can we agree Khaki Pants isn’t the answer?

I’ve never despised Hoke or RR as much as I despise Harbaugh.

I mean how can we be this bad?  If we get shutout then this team needs to just disassemble and focus on academics.  This is absolutely on Harbaugh's inability to rally the troops. Just fucking retire already, you don't have it. 

I'm not one to support "Fire the coach" but it really doesn't appear as if Harbaugh is the guy anymore. He doesn't seem to have a clue.  WTF with the call on the fumble? First possession.........it turned the game into a rout in one series. Where the fuck is the new guy offense?

This is going to completely change the way shit goes down here.  There's nothing to look forward to now. There's no speed-in-space, coaching has collapsed, no studs to watch out for.  We have absolutely nothing but other Michigan athletics to look out for.  Forget about OSU, we don't even have Rutgers as they'll certainly have our number.  We don't have the psychological integrity to compete.

I feel like we are cursed. OSU gets a 5 star QB transfer and he looks like Cam Newton. We get a 5 star QB transfer and he looks like Steven Threat. OSU hires Urban Freaking Meyer and he wins a NC. We hire Jim and he looks like he’s one step away from smearing shit on himself and living in a dumpster. DAMN IT!

As I said from the pre-season: Michigan is overrated.  The offense was an unknown quantity and that proved right.  The defense lost too many stars.  The WR core is highly touted, but what have they ever done in a game? Anyone?  This team is built on hype. Nothing of substance.  No identity.

There are a lot of doubters on here. If it wasn't for a few bad play calls, several poorly thrown passes, a fumble, missed tackles, the refs, poor execution, no running game, missed blocks, receivers unable to get separation, a couple of dropped passes, a taunting penalty, etc. we'd be in this game. Go Blue!

They're in for what looks to be, one terrible season.

Appears to me, the team is lost. If the coaches have lost the players (seems likely), pack it in.

Hairball is a goofy character to begin with, who rubs ppl wrong repeatedly over time. It's one thing with results. The record speaks for itself here.

Not even sure how they recover. Watching them yesterday I thought about Sparty & the stigma 'Sparty gonna spart'. You're always waiting for them to shoot themselves in the foot.

TTUN is Sparty. It's been such a long stretch of being irrelevant, don't know how they even get the belief back, that they can compete.

My hope is that they lose 5-6 games and Harbaugh steps down. He will not be fired, it just won't happen. After McCaffrey recovers from his concussion I'd like to see him or Milton start the rest of the season to gain experience because Shea Patterson is absolutely atrocious. I don't know what else to say, not surprised they lost but there's no excuse for the OL and QB play they are upperclassmen. I wouldn't be shocked if the Rutgers game comes down to the 4th quarter.

HS
jonping67's picture

I watched the 60 minute game on BTN because I wanted to focus on Shea and I could not believe how poor of a QB he is. Take a look at his feet when he drops back. it's like he's dancing in the pocket. Talk about "Happy Feet". And it's not just once or twice, but every drop back pass. How could this not be addressed after 2 years with the QB whisperer.

I hope they lose every game.

HS
CincyBuck's picture

So serious question: has Patterson gotten worse since he arrived at UM?  I remember him being good last year -- if not in the top tier of B1G QBs.  This year, in the limited times that I've watched him, he's just terrible.

HS
Invictus Buck's picture

I think every qb they have had under jim has gotten worse. I mean that in sincerity, they do not improve or even stay level.

HS
MGOBLUE0205's picture

Supposedly he injured a shoulder in the first game, not really buying that as the reason for his poor play. Honestly, I just think this is who Patterson is when you give him even more responsibility in the offense. Last year, he put up decent numbers behind a solid running game and wasn't asked to make the reads he's making this year. This is supposed to be the type of offense he is more comfortable in, but he's just terrible. He doesn't see the field, he's a one read type QB.  Perfect example was the Wisconsin DB falling down against Nico Collins at the start of a route, he was wide open downfield Patterson doesn't see him at all.

My hope is that you guys stick with Patterson, win all of the rest of your games through Indiana, give Harbaugh a 10 year contract in appreciation for his fine body of work, only to have OSU come up to A2 and beat you 62-0

buckeyeupnorth's picture

Unless Stephen Ross and other big time donors have a closed door meeting with Warde, Harbaugh stays. No program pushes a coach out unless they have someone on the line to reel in to replace them. Having Gattis as an interim would be a disaster, and I don't see any high level experienced coaches wanting the job. It's going to go to someone younger with less experience, but more open to modern, current schemes and structure. Less emphasis on taking student athletes on trips halfway across the world and more on getting quality players to buy in to Michigan. And that will mean rebuilding, losing games until you have players recruited that can play the system.

I don't know if the fan base will have the patience to wait for the above to happen, or if they will shred a new coach that doesn't come in and compete their first year in the CFP.

Unfortunately I don't have links for this info, but there's some insiders saying certain guys on the team will be benched this week including possibly Tarik Black, for basically being a diva. Don't ask me how Black thinks he's so good after breaking his foot twice, taking plays off and basically acting like he's T.O. There are others as well that are slacking off, not a good look at all and the first time under Harbaugh that this has happened. Shea Patterson's brother posted and then deleted on Instagram a rant about how Gattis and Harbaugh are both a joke and he can't wait for Shea to be great in the NFL. Which is completely laughable as Patterson will be lucky to play in the CFL. There is a lot of dissention on this team, combine that with all the other problems and I'll be shocked if they get to 7 wins.
