That article was full of ridiculous suppositions and half truths. If it were a dispositive writing paper it would have failed. Harvard turns out a few clunkers evidently.

Urban won because of his recruiting. Take that away and what do you have? I don't think anyone knows. And, what about the headaches? Hw just looks WAY to happy to me on TV.

If you have any humanity and also like Joe Burrow, why would you wish that he was sucked into the career death hole that is the Cincinnati Bengals? I wouldnt with that on even UM players.

1. They are Southern, and MORE delusional than UM fans. 2. Every one of dozens of computer polls have the Bucks as No. 1. 3. Getting into the playoff means much.more than the seed. 4. They are Southern, and Louisiana ranks 48th in education by US News and World Report. 5. They are Southerners.

In every phase of our lives, family, faith, sports, news, government, health, dwelling, in EVERY phase we have blind spots and rely on rationalizations to explain why what is right in front of our face is not real or true.  I've heard it from Ohio State fans.  

Michigan's blind spot covered by rationalizations is not different in its existence, but in its intensity that they do things right and OSU is the next thing to satan's football team.  

I try with all my might to eliminate these blind spots and realized that a cloud over my head is a cloud and a stone in my shoe is thus.  Its difficult with me being human and all, but not impossible.  

Great analysis of Michigan's place in the world.

Favorite current thread, after a basketball loss, is "Are we a baseball school now?"

Good point. And, most of the mouth breathers making this excuse never went to college or had the brains to get into UM.

I dont think it is so much focus as the right staff and recruiting. Better players and better coaches win. The only way they improve is cleaning house and bringing in the best possible non alumni coach. And, I'm confident they will never do that because of their arrogance.

The funny thing to me is that the answer isn't that Michigan can do better, the answer is that Michigan is inferior. Half an NC in 70 years is indicative of a second tier program. Their fans are too delusional to comprehend this. There simply is no catching up; there is only understanding they are Wisconsin or Michigan State equals, not Ohio State.

Describing better cancer treatment, or knee surgery protocol or better antibiotic methods is not political. Nor is calling for better treatment for drug users. If you think this is political, it's only in your mind.

Earle Bruce killed what Woody built and it kills me to read glowing comments of how great he was. He wasn't and at the end, no national or even Ohio recruits wanted to play here. Cooper for all his downside, built the recruiting back up. Tressel kept it up and won an NC with Coops recruits. Meyer continued the climb and took recruiting to the ultimate level. My opinion is that Day is the best coach of them all and will continue the dynasty. Michigan has just made bad hires. Other than RichRod, they stay in the Michigan Man pool which isnt that good. Carr to Moeller to RichRod to Hoke and Jimmy, they weren't the best coaches or fits. They simply made bad hires. OSU made GREAT hires which includes Geiger and Smith. Not OSU people necessarily, but the best fit available. The manslaughter will continue until UM cleans house and hires better, or OSU hires another Earle Bruce. The lesson? Each hire within the school's alumni failed. Only RichRod of the outside hires failed. You could argue Cooper failed, but I tend to see him as rebuilding the program for Tressel to take over. OSU has made significantly better hires than Michigan and that's the sole difference.
