Yup, it really sucks to be a Michigan fan. Going 8-4 with three of the losses being toss up games with the least talented Michigan team in decades really sucks. Man, how will I even be able to watch football when the #9 and #5 rated classes in the nation see the field for Michigan? Looks like it's going to be a long few seasons because Michigan lost the #17 CB in the nation who may not even play CB at OSU.
It is to offset the
"Enjoy your bowl game, oh wait"
I wish we had a group of corners THAT talented. Instead, we'll just have to settle for the 6th, 7th, and 17th best corners in the nation. Woe is us.
I'm going off from the composite rankings that compile the industry rankings.
Sorry man we used this last year....no taksies backsies
OSU didn't lack talent last year, they just decided to put one of the worst coaches in college football at HC for the season.
Where did you guys lack talent? You're defense went from abysmal to pretty solid...that takes talent , no?

To be honest the rest of the nation is using that joke as well. Just saying.
Congrats, he's very underrated IMO. Kid has monster potential. I'm going to be bitter about this 1 for a while. Oh well, its Friday so I'm gonna get shi.........I mean OSUfaced
You can have all those corners if you want, still isn't a guarantee to make your pass defense better.
The least talented team in decades? You think the 2012 skunkbears are the least talented scUM team in decades? Is your brain blocking out the RichRod era? Or let me guess, Richie wasn't a REAL M*chigan man so his tenure didn't count, right? I'm confused...
I know....I am all over it...I lolz. 1 month and this arduous process will finally end...it's been a terrible 7 months....
12-0 and 26-21. Apparently it was effective enough.
Ha, it'll be over before you know it. OSU looks like it will be in serious contention for preseason #1 next year. Idk if y'all will turn out to actually be the best, but OSU looks dangerous next year no doubt.
Yeah it takes talent, but a guy like Kovacs was solid and had good instincts, but he wasn't exactly a good athlete imo. In a couple of years it's hard to imagine a guy like Dymonte not being an upgrade. Also, Demens and Morgan were solid at their position, but again Michigan has better athletes that will hit the field in the coming years. The loss of Countess kind of sucked as well.
See, now this was a good post.
edit: That girl on the left in your signature is wearing an ugly color of shirt..she should definitely take it off ASAP...for.. science.

The defensive backs, running backs, wide receivers, and offensive line were all the least talented in a couple decades. Going off from recruiting rankings the defensive backs, wide receivers, and running backs all were lack luster players. The offensive line players were, for the most part, meant for a different scheme and were overall not that good because RR didn't really recruit OL during his tenure.
We better run...our schedule, is terrible. We gonna catch mad flak about it for sure...and we miss MSU and Brasky....
From '08 until now the talent has been down significantly at Michigan. Back in '07 Michigan had 10 starters who got drafted, and this year's team has maybe 5? So yeah, I would say the talent is down.
Talent man, talent. The Rich Rod teams had talent because he was using Lloyd Carr recruits for the first couple years, doesn't mean he coached them correctly. Hoke was left with a fairly empty cupboard and without the innovation of Greg Mattison, the team wouldn't be nearly as good as it is.
I think not playing MSU will help your SOS
Btw I would rather see Conley at WR than CB for OSU. I think he would be a good receiver for OSU, but I think he could turn into a first round CB if everything goes right. And I don't want to have to see Michigan throw against a guy like that.
Absolutely. Our 2008 and 2009 teams were more talented, just terribly coached.
