Watching that Iowa/TTUN game was the football equivalent of going to the dentist.
I can't thank Jim Tressel and Urban Meyer enough for what they've done to the UM psyche over the past two decades. They're a very damaged fanbase and program.
I am confident Ryan Day will continue the job.
I don't know why anyone pays attention to these polls, particularly this early in the season. This stuff will sort itself all out as the teams at the top start playing eachother.
On that note, can't wait to see us up against Wisconsin.
Hoke never got blown out by Ohio State
Think of UM's last 5 games...
Ohio State embarrasses them
Florida embarrasses them
Looks ugly vs MTSU
Looks ugly and barely beats Army
Wisconsin embarrasses them
*insert "this is fine" meme*
I can't wait for the next episode of the Michigan Podcast lol
1st and 20 and Wisconsin picks it up with a run up the gut.
I remained perplexed at how consistently mediocre-to-poor the QB play has been during Harbaugh's tenure. Patterson was decent last year but looks like garbage this year. Who's the best he's had there? Rudock? lol
Also, UM getting manhandled in the trenches.
I can't believe how bad Michigan is looking right now. I'm sure some of that is because Wisconsin is good but I think UM's coaching is horrible, with two weeks to prepare, they look lost and unprepared.
We need Georgia to beat ND. A one loss ND probably gets left out of the playoff considering the rest of their SoS and they have no conference title game.
This might be an unpopular take here, but I don't think Harbaugh is a fool. He's consistently had UM as a top 10 national program since he got there, aside from one year. They were inches from stopping JT in 2016 from possibly reaching the playoffs. I think his biggest issue has been not being able to recruit an elite QB since he got there, which is somewhat baffling. They've had a lot of mediocre guys under center.
I agree with this take. As underwhelming as Michigan has looked so far, with the bye week, I expect them to get it together enough to pull out a win this weekend (they get Runyan back too). Although the fact that the game is at Camp Randall gives me a little hope for Wisconsin but I still think UM wins , something like 24-17.
The locker room environment may not have been great when he left, but Meyer definitely didn't leave the cupboard bare when he left Florida. His 2010 class is still the highest rated class of all time.
I think the Meyer DL would be the difference in the ballgame and they'd win by 10-14.
When its the greatest QB season in Ohio State and Big Ten history, I think you should.
This is a very difficult question. Because the biggest reason the Bucks won the title was because of the defense. But the defense was amazing as a unit, playing cohesively together - not just from one guy (although it was loaded with individual talent).
Never thought I'd defend Lane Kiffin but he was actually a really solid OC hire for Saban.
I could watch Ted Ginn highlights all day.
Eh, counting 2011 and 2012 amongst the 8 is a little unfair. All the suspensions and coaching changes for 2011. Obviously the post season ban in 2012. 2013 was a disappointment for sure but that Michigan State team might have been the best team Dantonio has had there.
2015 is the big underachievement season. (note: we are spoiled but it is what it is)
I grew up during the Cooper years and its when I became a Buckeye fan, so I do have some appreciation for the era, even though TTUN weeks were always heartache. MSU in 1998 is tied with MSU 2015 as the most heartbreaking losses of my lifetime - just based on the team's talent and potential and what was blown with the loss. Nonetheless, Cooper does deserve credit for taking the program from mid-tier back to top 5.
Shut this thread down. We have the winning comment right here.
He's getting bashed because he talked trash about how the position was his and he was taking shots at Fields on twitter. If he had not said anything at all and then just transferred out, there'd be like zero qualms with it (like with Burrow). He just looks like a big douche for handling it that way.
After all that talking he did - this is the weakest move ever.
I totally agree that the suspension and the Smith drama was a major factor in him leaving. He was hung out to dry somewhat and his reputation took a hit. I still won't ever have any negative feelings towards him if he decides to coach again. He gave us 7 great years and is an OSU legend.
