I know they were thinking OSU would be keying on McSorley and they would catch OSU off guard but 4th and 5 with the game on the line you have to say our best will beat their best. If it doesn’t, you can live with the consequences.

09/30/2018 - 12:49am Agreed and there’s no way…

Agreed and there’s no way our defense will allow McSorely to gain 400 yards.

09/17/2018 - 7:48am Mattison is a great coach,…

Mattison is a great coach, but I don’t think there’s a consensus that he’s better than Larry Johnson. UM and OSU have that over PSU, but Wiltfong has said if Penn State was in Columbus he would have already committed to them. However Wiltfong also reiterated that Harrison has a better connection with the UM players and commits.

I live in the area and I was at his game on Friday. As the article states, the announcer did say that Zach wants everyone to know that he has hugged Urban Meyer. People laughed and cheered but it makes you wonder if he was taking a shot at him being suspended.

The guy genuinely doesn’t like attention and a lot of people around here are starting to believe it’s a UM/PSU battle and he’s only keeping OSU on the list to avoid the backlash. That’s not insider information and I’m not pretending to have any. I’m just sharing what people around here are saying. Also, his mom was very pro OSU and wants him to stay close to home so if she truly is okay with him going elsewhere, then he must have talked her into it and that would definitely be a good sign.

09/16/2018 - 1:13am No need to insult me and…

No need to insult me and other high school officials. Just kidding. There are some quality officials at our level. They just can’t take off a week or two a year from their regular jobs to pay for an officiating camp that’s as political as you can imagine and more about who you know than your ability to correctly officiate a game. 

09/16/2018 - 1:02am I think it’s because OSU…

I think it’s because OSU showed a huge weakness on defense. I think we will go to Columbus with a better team than we had last November and we will play an OSU team that looks to be weaker, at least defensively, than they were a year ago. 


09/16/2018 - 12:52am Why aren’t you posting on…

Why aren’t you posting on 11W? Do you have an obsession with Michigan football? Let me guess, you’re in your late 30’s or 40’s and Michigan ruined your Buckeye childhood? You post on this site instead of your own because you have become obsessed with Michigan. You probably enjoy a Michigan loss more than an OSU win. That’s fine. Enjoy it while you can. The series will turn soon and Michigan will start winning The Game again and when they do you will be the same miserable little boy you were when you watched Tim Biakabutuka run all over your defense.

09/02/2018 - 9:16pm Have we forgotten about the…

Have we forgotten about the Brenden Gibbons situation? If we were as good as OSU it would’ve been national headlines. Since we sucked, nobody paid attention. Let’s not pretend we don’t have any dirty laundry.

09/02/2018 - 9:10pm If Clemson offered to pay…

If Clemson offered to pay off a house and didn’t get him, makes you wonder what we had to offer in order to get him. - I don’t think Michigan is out there throwing that kind of money around, but you can see it goes both ways when you make those accusations. Michigan has landed a handful of elite players, Gary, Solomon, Ruiz, DPJ, etc.. Either Michigan is doing it too or it’s not as prevalent as people make it seem. I guess it’s possible that everyone but Michigan cheats and we are such a great school that every year we are able to get every top level kid who isn’t looking for a pay day.

09/02/2018 - 11:20am I understand the pessimism,…

I understand the pessimism, but OSU gave up 31 points to one of, if not the worst, power 5 team in the country. Their defense backs and linebackers look horrendous. MSU needed a late comeback to beat Utah State. If OSU or MSU had played ND yesterday they would be 0-1. I`m not saying I guarantee Michigan beats both of them, but let's not pretend that either of them looked like they were on another level from Michigan.

09/02/2018 - 11:14am Unfortunately I'm too stupid…

Unfortunately I'm too stupid to differentiate between hopes and expectations. I hope Michigan wins the rest of their games, so my expectations are that they will. I might say 9-3 or 8-4, but deep inside I think we will win them all and make the CFP.

Michigan should win their next 5 games without too much trouble. After that is Wisconsin and MSU. I guess that's when we will find out what kind of team they will be this year.

09/02/2018 - 10:46am No, actually I didn't…

No, actually I didn't realize that he flipped out yesterday. I'm not sure if that's good or bad because I'm trying to make sense of this team not being great in year 4 of Harbaugh. He`s turned around every team\program he took over by this point in his tenure. Michigan should have been the easiest to do it with yet he's 9-9 in his last 18 games (which has only been pointed out by every sports page in America this morning). 

If I want to believe the only thing keeping Harbaugh and his team from being great is whether he takes a pill or not, please don't ruin that for me. - jk...or at least I think I am.

09/02/2018 - 10:20am If OSU would've played ND…

If OSU would've played ND yesterday instead of Oregon State, you would've given up 60 points. You gave up 31 points to the worst power 5 team in the country. In the first 4 minutes of the second half your defense gave up 150 yards and 14 points to Oregon State...Oregon State. The fact you're here to celebrate shows how truly ignorant you are. Come back in seven weeks and compare records then. 

09/02/2018 - 10:11am I have wondered the same…

I have wondered the same thing because he went from being one of the most animated coaches on the sideline to almost the complete opposite. I don't think that's something you can control that easily. For those of us who have a tendency to yell at the tv when watching a game, we've all been in situations where we are watching a game with the in-laws or someone that you need to tone it down for. Then a bullshit flag is thrown and you find yourself jumping around and shouting "These refs are fucking cheaters" while everyone else is just sitting and looking at you like you're crazy. - Seriously you can't just decide to be calm and it has to be a hundred times harder for a coach.


09/02/2018 - 1:27am Patterson was a 5 star…

Patterson was a 5 star recruit, so in that sense he was a top QB. Ole Miss seemed to do fine without him today. 

09/02/2018 - 12:53am We will beat MSU or OSU…

We will beat MSU or OSU because we lost this game? If that’s true, maybe we’ll get lucky and lose next weekend and then we can beat both of them. 

09/01/2018 - 11:47pm Agreed that Harbaugh’s…

Agreed that Harbaugh’s demeanor has changed. I wonder if all the criticisms and mocking of his “childish” behavior in year one got to him. Maybe he lost some confidence with the lack of early success? I have no clue but he’s not the same guy that he was when he was hired. I’m still cautiously optimistic for the season because OSU, MSU, and PSU all struggled this weekend too. Hopefully Harbaugh will return to his old self with one big victory.

09/01/2018 - 11:31pm We can use that excuse…

We can use that excuse against OSU, but we have higher rated recruits than every other team on our schedule. We are probably equal or slightly ahead of Notre Dame.

09/01/2018 - 11:21pm It’s the first game of the…

It’s the first game of the season, on the road, with a new QB. This doesn’t hurt our chances for Big Ten or the CFP whatsoever. We have to get better to reach those goals, but if OSU, MSU, or PSU would’ve played ND instead of their cupcake openers, they would’ve lost too. OSU gave up 31 to the worst power 5 school in the country. MSU had to comeback in the 4th quarter to beat Utah State, and PSU needed OT to beat Appalachian State. 

Defense looks great again. We need someone to step up as a playmaker at WR and our o-line needs to improve. I may be crazy but tonight I feel just as good about our chances to win the Big Ten as I did this morning.

06/24/2018 - 7:12pm According to the insiders…

According to the insiders OSU wasn't sold on Gunnel and if OSU wanted him, he would've committed to them.

05/21/2018 - 9:27pm I don't think ND will be very

I don't think ND will be very good at all next year with everything they lost. I'm a self-admitted pessimist at times but I think we roll them by 20+. We may still go 10-2 or worse but we will be predicting a National Championship after the first game. I also hate ND more than OSU and MSU so that could explain the feeling.

05/14/2018 - 12:44am I’ve become a little

I’ve become a little pessimistic on recruiting but he hasn’t decommitted and he only said he would take an official visit. How does this mean he’s gone? It’s not like you get major colleges calling you and begging you to visit their school all the time. I won’t fault a kid for enjoying the process. There’s a reason he committed to UM and in the end I think he will stick with it.

05/11/2018 - 9:52pm I live in Delaware County and

I live in Delaware County and I have no idea what you are talking about. This area is very pro OSU. The word around here is the same as the recruiting boards...he’s not a lock to OSU. He LOVED his Penn State visit. It opened his eyes to what else might be out there. It’s an OSU - PSU battle with an open mind to UM. He has visited OSU over a dozen times in the last year. Loves his family and will probably stay close to home and go to OSU when all is said and done BUT it is definitely not guaranteed.

05/02/2018 - 11:00pm I don’t understand the the

I don’t understand the the thought that the game plan against OSU was successful but the QB just couldn’t execute. If your QB can’t execute the game plan, then it’s a bad game plan.

05/01/2018 - 9:39pm There’s four Big 10 teams in

There’s four Big 10 teams in the top ten (4 in the top 7 to be exact) and five in the top 25. Maybe OP meant Big Ten East teams...or maybe he said that and I read it wrong. If so, my apologies.

I don’t understand how anyone can have MSU ranked ahead of us. I’m guessing if the sportsbooks put a line on our game with them right now, we would be favored by more than a touchdown.

04/28/2018 - 7:46pm It’s not worth the argument

It’s not worth the argument because there’s nothing to argue yet. We had 11 guys drafted last year and still didn’t get the job done when OSU had the youngest team in the country. You can’t say we lost because we were young when they were in our shoes the year before and beat us. You can’t argue talent when you have the most guys picked in the NFL draft. You can’t argue that our Q.B. was hurt when theirs got hurt too and the backup came in and beat us. You have to sit back and take it with a smile because you know the difference has been the quarterback and this year we will finally have the advantage at the most important position on the field. I won’t be surprised if we not only beat them, but completely embarrass them this year.

Our defense is elite, skilled positions are elite, and if we can just get above average play from the offensive line (we now have the coach to get them there) we will be playing for a national championship next season.

04/28/2018 - 7:24pm But Hart never beat OSU. What

But Hart never beat OSU. What am I missing?

04/27/2018 - 7:15am I live in Columbus and most

I live in Columbus and most people didn’t care about the flag planting thing when it happened. Eight or nine months later, nobody cares.

04/20/2018 - 5:29pm Why was it a sad day for UM

Why was it a sad day for UM when he was fired? Because OSU beat us? The firing of Bruce was the beginning of the Cooper era. We went from the most evenly matched period of the Rivalry to one of the most dominant.

04/17/2018 - 7:41pm It would be okay if you would

It would be okay if you would have said I question if Harbaugh handled this properly but you come in blasting and calling the program a circus.

Seriously though, even if Harbaugh kicked him off the team for leaving to spend time with a dying family member (I’m not saying this is the case, just worse case) would that justify a death threat? My point is you can call the program a circus and blame Harbaugh, but there’s nothing he could’ve done in this situation that would deserve a death threat.

04/03/2018 - 6:09pm I think you say what many

I think you say what many people are thinking when it comes to recruiting, which is why there are 20 posts from people saying “oh no here comes Maizen to complain” BUT I don’t think you should do it in the kids Hello post. This is to congratulate the young man. If recruits do log on and read these, do you really want them reading the negative stuff? You can complain about recruiting, but please try not to do it in the Hello post.

04/03/2018 - 12:06am Villanova was by far the best

Villanova was by far the best team this year and they got once in a lifetime game from a bench player. There’s not another college out there that could have beaten them tonight.

There’s nothing to be embarrassed about, but I imagine there will be a lot of talk about how we got every break imaginable with our bracket and we didn’t belong. Hope I’m wrong and all the talking heads give credit where it’s due.

03/04/2018 - 8:13pm Agreed. I thought he was

Agreed. I thought he was trying to save his energy for the end but he didn’t get the one opportunity he was waiting on. There’s a reason Snyder is the best wrestler on the planet right now.
If there was another weight division we would have three grapplers crowned today.
Excited to see these two meet in the NCAA championship for the rubber match.

02/11/2018 - 8:31pm I believe they would be in

I believe they would be in different weight divisions in the Olympics. I know that’s not what you said. I’m just mentioning it. Great win.

02/08/2018 - 10:29pm Did you throw in the

Did you throw in the consistently part to avoid implicating UM? The previous two years we recruited at a high level. Were we bending the rules or is it possible that ther are only handful of recruits that require something extra?

02/07/2018 - 11:22pm Good point but I doubt they

Good point but I doubt they win the conference.

02/07/2018 - 11:20pm Agreed. Purdue wins out in

Agreed. Purdue wins out in the regular season and osu will lose at least one or two more games. Tonight was just ugly and they got the breaks at the end. 

02/07/2018 - 10:04pm Remind me how National

Remind me how National Championships, or even conference championships he won with those recruiting classes? The year they went 12 - 1, they were blown out by Oregon and the conference was terrible.

I’m not concerned though because this class was preceded by two great classes and next year could be special also.

02/07/2018 - 12:34pm And they have a PWO who is

And they have a PWO who is ranked higher than a couple of our scholarship commits. They are recruiting well, but I’m confident we have a good class that fits what we need and we will be just fine. It wasn’t what I was hoping for but since Harbaugh hasn’t shut down the program yet, he must be good with what we have.

02/06/2018 - 8:37pm We didn’t lose Friday because

We didn’t lose Friday because OSU said Partridge was leaving. If that were true he would’ve flipped back to us. He signs his LOI tomorrow. It’s not like he signed in December.

We have the best public university in the country. We arguably have the richest history in college football. We have one of the greatest coaches in football regardless of level and top of the line facilities. Unless we are signing a class of 15 or less, we shouldn’t have a class that finishes in the teens.

02/06/2018 - 8:09pm Agreed. I kept reading on

Agreed. I kept reading on here that we were in it and nobody had any idea who he was going to pick. I checked UF board and no mention of UM. Visit ND, Bama, and OSU boards and nothing about UM. I heard Wiltfong on a podcast the other day and he said he wouldn’t be surprised if NPF picked any of the finalists, then he added except for Michigan. Oh well. Hopefully he picks someone other than OSU or ND.

02/06/2018 - 3:29pm The point is OSU didn’t just

The point is OSU didn’t just call him a week ago and introduce themselves. They’ve been in the running for a long time. Most experts just underestimated his interest in OSU.

02/06/2018 - 2:59pm If it makes any better, OSU

If it makes any better, OSU has been in on NPF for a long time. He took an unofficial visit there over the summer and his family has a strong relationship with Schiano. His interest in OSU was just under estimated by experts.

02/02/2018 - 5:45pm OSU has back to back

OSU has back to back Rimington Award Winners under their new o-line coach and also led the conference in rushing yards. They have a lot to sell and the hardware to back it up. Hopefully it’s too little too late. If he doesn’t pick the good guys, I hope he picks Florida. Anyone but OSU and ND.

02/01/2018 - 12:57pm I could be wrong, but I

I could be wrong, but I believe most five stars are the four stars with great work ethic and a good attitude. That’s the reason they have risen to the top and separated themselves. They are naturally gifted, but there are plenty of guys who are gifted and it was all the hard work that made them the best of the best.

01/28/2018 - 9:58pm We know what it says without

We know what it says without the full picture, the concern is he purposely pose in a spot that would include the writing. The picture could have been taken from any angle but it looks like they tried to include the Commit part. He probably didn’t realize and it could be why he took the picture down.

01/27/2018 - 8:56pm Hey Magnus, I was on your

Hey Magnus, I was on your site and read that Sandidge cancelled his OV this weekend. It’s probably been discussed on here, but it’s the first I’ve heard about it. Do you have anything posted on who we are still chasing for the 2018 class? I’m curious to see how you think we finish and how many more guys we will take.

01/22/2018 - 11:11pm I would love to see Chris

I would love to see Chris Olave in this class. I think he’s underrated and will be a steal for whatever school gets him.

01/19/2018 - 11:13pm I’ve read on here at least a

I’ve read on here at least a hundred times, “trust Harbaugh”. This kid was a player that Harbaugh and staff wanted. You may not be impressed with his film but our staff was and that alone makes it a huge loss. Throw in the fact he went to OSU and it’s even worse.

01/19/2018 - 6:04pm Right now I would gladly take

Right now I would gladly take making the playoffs once ever four years.

01/19/2018 - 6:01pm What makes you think he

What makes you think he selected OSU because of his coach? It's not like he picked Illinois over us. It's way more likely that his decision has absolutely nothing at all to do with his coach.
