Huge assumption that an OSU fanboy could make it to the 8th grade.  Maybe in Ohio, but if this person lives in Michigan, no way could he advance to that level.

All same has ever said is that he's a great player..excellent talent...game changer.  I'm sure he was very excited that Dax originally chose Michigan, but why would he have to save face?  He didn't lose the recruit.  Was it his job to keep Dax committed to Michigan?

So you're saying there's a chance?!

Yes - because there is more to life than football. If you're as good as he is supposed to be, he will get to the NFL playing anywhere. Why wouldn't you want the better combination of big time football and education?  Frankly, if I were a parent with a child with that level of talent, I would advise looking at a limited pool of schools - Michigan, Stanford, ND, Texas, USC, and a few others.

This is the perfect post for myopic Michigan fans. Great job!  Were you posting it for the 11 point basketball win yesterday, the 10-2 football season, during which Michigan beat PSU, MSU, and Wisconsin (I know, they are all terrible and we should have beaten them by more points), or the OSU loss?

12/05/2018 - 9:42am And the three wins for day…

And the three wins for day were Oregon State, Rutgers, and TCU.  TCU looked like a great win, but a tough game.  I didn't realize TCU ended the year 6-6 with losses to Kansas and Texas Tech...ouch.

Hell, they'd even tear up Ohio State!  Look what Purdue did!

This does not seem like an accurate representation.  Perhaps there was some of this, but person 1 seems like a highly reasonable critic.  When challenged on this blog, I don't think many just respond with "settle down man."

There has been an awful lot of, "..better beat state and OSU...or....else" from many posters on this board.  Particularly at the end of last season and following the ND game this year.

10/17/2018 - 9:47am That's a huge IF.  When MSU…

That's a huge IF.  When MSU attempted the 2 pt conversion, there was 1 second on the clock.  The conversion was untimed, however the clock would start when any player touched the ball on the kickoff. It's likely that the 1 second would have run off (Spartan Bob no longer runs the clock).  It seems that this was MSU trying to get one point closer so that they could be defeated with dignity.

10/03/2018 - 10:29am If by "riot to listen to"…

If by "riot to listen to" you mean "makes me want to immediately turn off the radio" then I agree.  Even if he his valid points, his delivery is terrible and he comes off as bitter.  

If I recall, Marcus played in the consecutive games in 1998 where the Michigan D was torched by Notre Dame's running QB and then Syrcuase's McNabb.  I remember that as the start of Michigan's inability to defend running quarterbacks.  I would like to here him discuss that sometime.  I remember watching those games coming off a national championship year.  What changed....oh, there was no Woodson covering the defensive backfield. 

09/09/2018 - 9:51am Did you ever listen to…

Did you ever listen to Marcus when he was on WTKA?  This may actually be him.

Doubt many "fans" would be on board with taking the 3-9 season though.

A key point in your post is "...and this includes his 2016 nightmare season."  The nightmare season was 3-9!!  Of course there were probably not many one score games in that season, because they were so bad they went 3-9!

Nobody?!? had this game as a loss?  Not sure that's accurate.

Honestly, I saw Jim do that last year to his kicker.  However, he needs to get in the face of the Oline.

C'mon!  Don't tell people to put down the pitch forks!  I put all my money into "torch and pitchfork, Inc" after that Patterson fumble. Now I'm waiting for my 401K to really take off!

09/02/2018 - 12:09am Scheduling ND for the first…

Scheduling ND for the first game was a huge problem, especially given the circumstances .Game 1 for a new starter....on the road against a top 15 team is not the place to break him in.  Reminded me of the Utah game in 2015. Hopefully Patterson grows into the system like Jake did. Wish we would have been playing Arkansas at home today.

By the end of THIS decade?  You may want to reevaluate that statement.

Those are board members who are prohibited from receiving funds to manage; they would likely have influence over selecting fund managers, so that makes sense.  Do the universities mentioned have the same rule for alumni or donors?  I suspect that they do not.

Yes, Michigan's performance under Beilein is light years apart from OSU's, including Holtmann's first year.  2 NCAA Tournament Championship game appearances is the best evidence one could point toward.  I think that's all that really needs to be said.

...and Bill Clinton, Harvey Weinstein (big Obama and Hillary backer), Kevin Spacey, NY AG, Congressman Conyers, etc, etc.  Why do some act like only one political party has deviants.  Perhaps an agenda.

Did you hear the one about the sitting president who assaulted several women...then his wife, who was aware of everything, also ran for president?  You really can't make this stuff up!

Also, I don't think a city in MI could charge a 4% income tax - legislative limits?  The highest is Detroit at 2.4% for residents and 1.2% for non-residents - you have to charge it to everyone and non-resident can only by 50% of the resident rate.  Residents pay if they work within or outside the city limits.

07/02/2018 - 4:54pm Ann Arbor considered an…

Ann Arbor considered an income tax several years ago, which would have to be approved in a local election.  The City conducted polling and the response was an overwhelming "NO" even with the provision that property tax would be drastically reduced (I believe that is in the City Charter).  People just don't trust any form of government to follow through on such items.  Although, an income tax would generate millions of dollars for the city given the number of non-resident commuters.

07/02/2018 - 4:48pm Many local governments in…

Many local governments in Michigan (and across the US, Canada, Ireland and many other countries) are actually Council-Manager forms of government rather than "strong mayor."  The mayor and council serve the legislative function and the Manager (or in Ann Arbor "Administrator") is the Executive Officer responsible for day-to-day operations.  Given this form of government, your local government can still talk about the policy issues, but make sure there is a professional adviser to the legislative body.  You can also count on taxes being collected, complaints addressed, treasury managed, etc.  The Manager/Administrator is hired by the elected body.  In Ann Arbor that person is Howard E. Lazarus.  IMO, the Executive Officer selection is more important than the Mayoral election - but that's just my opinion, man.

Well, clearly "corruption, greed, and sloth" have a home with no boundaries on the political spectrum, as is evidenced throughout history.  However, the constitution does apply, therefore it outlines various items - such as appointments by the President, with the consent of the Senate and also electoral college.  Two items that many fail to understand, which was my point in linking.

Doubt that will ever happen.  It's been at 9 since 1869; FDR tried and failed to increase the number.  Both parties have had the White House, Senate, and House and the number hasn't changed in nearly 150 years.

I've heard Brian talk specifically about offensive line recruiting...you complain about every 3 star highs school kid who even mentions Michigan.  Then you fail to comment on a discussion about a 5 star offensive linemen says Michigan is at the top of his list.  Seems like someone doesn't really want to discuss recruiting, and it's you.

06/22/2018 - 1:13am Interesting take that…

Interesting take that Michigan's receivers are a "take your lunch pail to work" group.  The top 2 were highly rated, with DPJ being the #1 WR in his class and the #12 ranked player.  T. Black was also a high 4* that many think was underrated.  Depth is always good, but I agree that WR is not a position of need.

Additionally, some can now also admit that everything isn't a mistake made by the coaches.  Sometimes kids just don't want to come to Michigan.

Or maybe he likes other things about PSU that he thinks are a good fit for him.  You know, something outside of football.  

06/07/2018 - 11:28am Is this the same post as…

Is this the same post as yesterday, only for a different player?  At least change it up a little.  The, "If someone told me this would be happening in year 4 of Harbaugh when he was hired...." line is getting tiresome.  Can't wait to see the next post when someone issues a crystal ball pick or when a recruit puts a team list on twitter.

Seems like Brian is making a joke to me, but what do I know.  It appears that there are some writters/staffers/etc. who made the trip as a vacation, but will likely consider it "business" as far as the IRS is concerned.  Brian is just pointing to that in jest, IMO.

04/30/2018 - 11:01am Sure, some freshman are

Sure, some freshman are great, but you mention Lewerke as being so much more capable.  In his first year he was 31/57 (54.4%) with 381 yds, 2 TD, 1 Int - a 118.6 rating.  Last year Peters was 37/64 (57.8%) with 486 yds, 4 TD, 0 Int - a 142.2 rating.  Seems comparable, with the edge going to Peters.  But maybe I'm missing some intangibles that you are catching.

JB needs a raise!  He is worth every penny - a great coach and a better human being.  Sparty and OSU folks I know hate Michigan, but it seems that they all like coach.  Even after last night's loss, he was so composed and caring in all of the interviews.  I'm sure that he didn't feel like doing any of them, but he was awesome.  

03/31/2018 - 4:13pm I think you may have your

I think you may have your timeline and order of events confused somewhat.  MICHIGAN submitted the application to the NCAA on February 26, according to the Detroit News.  Michigan's athletic department, including its Chief Compliance Officer, worked with Shea's attorney in constructing the application. From reports, I recall the the NCAA delayed in sending the packet to Ole Miss.

03/30/2018 - 2:59pm Absolutely correct.  There is

Absolutely correct.  There is no slight here whatsoever to Michigan – or any of the other schools in the final four, as I see it.  It was an interesting article, and you could only interpret that the author was bashing anyone if you were looking to have hurt feelings.  I could easily see something like this being written by a Michigan professor, only with a much more negative view of athletics and its impact on academics.

Knights on Liberty has a large tv at the end of the dining area, and smaller tvs at the bar and other end of the dining area.  Also has great food and mixed drinks.  This is a excellent combo for watching the game and talking business.

03/13/2018 - 5:48pm I hope that Mississippi State

I hope that Mississippi State doens't get sued for something Ole Miss did.  That would be a horrible precedent!  Sorry, had to do it.

03/06/2018 - 3:51pm I think Michigan was expected

I think Michigan was expected to be average and exceeded expectations, particularly to close the season.  I pulled up about 5 preseason B10 previews and Michigan was picked to finish anywhere from 5th to 8th in the conference.  Michigan finished tied for 4th, but lit everything on fire to close the season; the team probably would have finished higher without the compressed schedule.
