TURDS ALL UP IN THIS MUG. /// "2010 Auburn Tigers, my favorite team. Unbeaten in all ways." -- Dan Wetzel, April 4, 2013, 6:29 p.m.
UM and OSU have as good or better facilities than anyone or the country and tons of money and good enough academics, so it generally comes down to coaching. When the coaching is equal, it's a heck of a battle. When the coaching is lopsided, well, so are the results. Urbie has the rings and, on paper, should be successful at OSU. I'm not 100% sold on his staff yet, so I guess we will see over the next couple of years on that. Hoke was a huge question mark coming in, but he has answered all the critics. And, so far, both Borges and Mattison seem to be perfect fits. I know everyone likes to call last year luck, but it was nothing of the sort. You cannot look at the way the defense played last year vs. the previous three years and call it luck. Could we have lost a couple more games? Sure. But you can say that about any team. And the recruiting has been stellar. So far, it has been as good if not better than Lloyd Carr's and LC won a lot of football games against very good teams. My guess is once OSU gets past this year with the bowl ban, it will be another bloody decade between the two schools. As long as we win one more game than we lose, I will be happy!

Yes. And if it's ok with you, we would just as soon forget most of the 50s and 60s.
OVERSIGNING, OVERSIGNING, GETTING RID OF PLAYERS!!!
Just like what you said Urb was going to do.
Man, that was a good one Butte. You should get paid for that kind of comedy.
Way to set a random date, go back 2 years and we lead the series.
Since the coaches poll era (1950) , we lead 32-28-2
Since the AP era(1936) the series is tied, 36-36-4

Random Date?!?!? You do realize that was when the Bo and Woody era began.
It's not a random date. It is since the arrival of Bo. If you would prefer, we can just stick to the entire history of the rivalry. I am fine with that.
Yeah yeah.... Modern era we're even.
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
Sorry, when is the modern era 'begin'? That is pretty arbitrary.
But whatever. I accept we have been pretty even for a long period of time.
Coaches Poll or AP poll. I think it's coaches poll that's considered Modern era.
Maybe when you guys get an OL it won't be so funny.
Nice one, butte. You always come thru in the clutch.
11 National Titles | 42 Conference Titles | 3 Heisman Winners | 78 All-Americans | 37 College Hall of Fame Members
We have an Oline. We have reasonable depth at every position. We took two good tackles last year. We don't have the depth that you do, but we have decent starters and good young gun. Yeah, we need more, but we're alright right now.
But, Oh our dline haul.
I'll take Michigan's DL and OL haul over OSU's any day of the week.
This is Michigan, fergodsakes.
Congrats to UMich. As much as I hate you guys, at least it keeps an elite talent out of the $$$$ECheat.
Now, may I ask ... are you guys done now? Can we please have the spotlight for a while?
And I shall rejoice in victory for another 365 days over That School Up North.
You're dline? Who ya got Big Daddy Pipkins, and Poggi? Spence, Washington, Pittman, BOSA, Price, and Possibly Hill, along with Hankins.
You're OLINE is beastly though.
Pipkins, Wormley, Strobel, Godin, Ojemudia, and Henry last year.
Poggi, Hurst, and Charlton this year so far.
Yea, we're all set.
Oh I'm shaking, I'm shaking.
Pipkins is maybe the only one I take.
Don't know man- check out Leon McQuay new top 3- Mathis is coming back to town soon- and treadwell could drop anytime- just keep riding in back- we'll let ya know when ya's can sit in front ..lol
And that's why you post on a message board while Hoke and Mattison get paid hefty sums to coach Michigan.
They're laughing at your oline also.
Oh yeah, not like I'm having a conversation with anyone on this board or anything. Don't forget our coaches get some good money too.
Meyer gets paid plenty for a reason. Your coaches (former and current, Fickell on both staffs) offered more than just Pipkins from that list. Poggi, Wormley, and Strobel all had OSU offers.
Seems they know what they are doing.
