If you click on the comments, it is pretty clear that there is little respect for the writer or who he writes for. Perhaps that is the real story rather than publishing a transcript of a phone call.

I was at the 2006 as well. The atmosphere was awesome; however, by the time the game was over and I walked back to my car, I was absolutely frozen. In short, if one is sitting in a living room with a cold one and the heat turned on, it would be awesome. If you are at the game and the temp is less than, say 20 degrees, it would suck big time.

I moved from Columbus to Arizona in 2001 so out of the sports talk loop. I listened to 610 George Lerner and John Corby with Matt McCoy doing the updates and Coach Bruce on Monday nights. Funny, snarky, political.

Can we get the Avengers to close this freaking portal before any more of our players are sucked up?

Try this from NBC Sports:

Alabama defensive coordinator Tosh Lupoi hired by Browns

Posted by Charean Williams on January 16, 2019, 7:40 PM EST

Alabama defensive coordinator Tosh Lupoi is headed to Cleveland to join the Browns, Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports reports. Lupoi will join Freddie Kitchens’ staff as the defensive line coach.

Lupoi was the primary recruiter for Tua Tagovailoa, Jonah Wililams, Najee Harris and Raekwon Davis, among others, and known as one of the nation’s top recruiters.

It is a good get for Kitchens, a former Alabama quarterback.

Lupoi spent five seasons with Nick Saban at Alabama, earning a promotion to defensive coordinator a year after after Jeremy Pruitt left to become the head coach at the University of Tennessee. Lupoi served as the outside linebackers coach for the three seasons before that after arriving as an analyst in 2014.

He coached the defensive linemen for four seasons at Cal and for two seasons at the University of Washington before leaving for Alabama.

The Cardinals traded up to take Rosen at #10 last year. I cannot too much of a way in which they take Murray at #1. They would have to trade Rosen before the draft and Rosen has not shown enough to get back what they spent last year. Then you take Murray at the #1 spot when there are many other much higher rated players at that spot. This is posturing and smoke and mirrors to see if anyone might trade up and still keep them in the top 5-6 position.

Comment 10 Jan 2019

Based on how the NFL jobs have been filled so far, I don't see Harbaugh moving back to the Big Leagues. It seems that most are looking for young (he ain't that), innovative (scratch that one), offensive minds (strike three); oh, and they have to be good looking, evidently (and that's a wrap).

Since the NFL doesn't appear to be an option, I think he stays put and rides this out. It is possible that he is sitting on a cliff somewhere singing "should I stay or should I jump" over and over again. At this point, I am not sure it really matters to Ohio State fans as "there will be blood" either way and it will not be ours.

Comment 10 Jan 2019

At this point, I would settle for consistency from the group. A tackle for loss followed by a 70+ yard run was just frustrating to watch. Do your job each down and we will be much improved. Harrison looked great for a few plays and then was missing, If Borland cannot improve his speed/quickness, then next man up. Hard to say which direction Werner will go and it is time for Browning to start playing like a 5 star. 

Comment 01 Jan 2019

I hope this is true for so many reasons:

- Day wins the first battle

- AW was a big Ohio Recruiter for them- double win there

- we upgrade the LB coaching position

- finally, because it will just cause another meltdown up north

I did wonder this as well. Harbaugh grinds on people and has worn out his welcome before. Is it just coincidence that we had some peculiar transfers, more players sitting out the bowl than our peers, and a nosedive in performance at the end of the year? Might well all be unrelated, who knows, but it could be an indication that he lost this team in November.

It would be easier to give Harbaugh the benefit of the doubt on this one if he was interested in the fanbase getting to know him and his program. Michigan Replay has turned into a charade. He doesn't do more than a couple minutes of pre-taped garbage when Gameday comes to town. He won't do on-field interviews. He shows up for pressers acting like a clown, with his Bo hat and bumbling answers that are increasingly vague, if not completely incoherent. He's receded into an almost non-entity the longer he's been here.

Combine that with the tweets coming out from current and former players in the last few weeks, the guys sitting out becoming the storyline before this game, and there being basically no effort from within to counter any of it in the days and weeks leading to the Peach Bowl...

Fort Schembechler is one thing. This is another. Everything about the program feels off.

It's really hard to stop once you start as we don't have to take any shots; they are far better at it.

Really? Jim Harbaugh is 1-9 against top 10 teams but this game doesn't show anything...We had all of our top players against O state and what was that score again?  Jim Harbaugh is NOT the fucking Messiah, Don Brown is so overrated its ridiculous, Pep sucks. Look reality in the face and face it.  I'm a Marine, we don't make excuses. We learn, we adapt, we overcome. Quit acting like this team is some great elite team or Jim fucking Harbaugh is. I'm seriously worried every kid that signed last week has a clause in their paperwork that would allow them to get out of it.

No actually, I won’t be. I’m not a roller coaster fan who celebrates the September heismans and then hates the staff in November. All season I’ve been waiting for Harbaugh and Co. to demonstrate why they were so hyped upon arrival. If you could ask any of my personal Michigan fan friends you’d know this.

All I read in this and most other blogs is how Harbaugh is one of the greatest coaches ever. Anyone who dares criticize him is crucified by the board. Well, I decided to take a “wait and see” approach this season. Nobody’s body of work deserves criticism until all the work has been completed. Well now the season is over. Four years of coaching and development brought to the world’s most pathetic crescendo. The wheels came flying off the bus in magnificent fashion.

Stand there and claim the entire team looked so so so bad (again) merely due to a few players sitting out. Stand there and claim that Harbaugh and Co. has this team on the cusp of greatness....NEXT year. Stand there and claim nothing is wrong and the team is “trending up”. Stand there and claim how we’ll easily beat OSU and win the conference next year because Day can’t possibly be any good and because Harbaugh. 

I am firmly in the camp of “I’ll believe Harbaugh is capable of better than what we’ve gotten when I actually see the ‘W’ next to the OSU game and the team proudly holding up the B10 trophy above their heads.” Until I see it actually happen, I won’t believe that this staff is capable of taking us there.

It's called PRIDE !  And if much of the fan base and players didn't feel it or care about winning, then why even accept a bowl bid ? 

You can spin it any way you want, but every - EVERY - OSU player is playing in the Rose bowl including all of their high draft projections citing that they didn't want to let their teammates and coaches down. Notice the difference ?

The program is an absolute joke. Since 2004, the team has lost the last two games of the year 9 times. During these 15 years, the team has beaten OSU once and has missed going to a bowl game as often as they've won them (3 times). Harbaugh is 1-9 against top-10 teams. Two unbelievably embarrassing blowouts on national tv to end the year. Can't even beat Florida anymore. 

The offense is absolutely anemic despite having the athletes needed to have a great one. Running speed guys up the middle, miserable blocking, not getting the ball to Collins, Black, and DPJ, tight ends can't block or catch, no tempo (even when they're down by multiple possessions!), awful time management, Shea hitting his (surprisingly low) ceiling, etc. Don Brown/the defense are straight-up trash when Michigan plays anyone with a pulse. Can't cover, can't get pressure, can't tackle. 

What a miserable year/decade and a half.
