Been a Michigan Wolverines fan since Michigan beat Texas Tech 41 - 3 in Ann Arbor back in late September of 1976!!!

However I think 7 is worst-case scenario, more likely 8 or 9.
+1

If Maryland is truly "for real," I am worried about that match up.

A lot of folks are speculating that Harbaugh was doing play calling on offense yesterday. I hope (a) that is indeed true and (b) that will no longer be the case VERY SOON.

Maryland lost to Temple today; saw that.

Temple defeated Maryland last season, too. Deja vu!

Without even playing, they fell from 10 to 11.

MSU lost and fell out of the Top 25.


Is THAT where they got the idea for the 486-SX?

So far, Michigan D-line is playing like shit. Wisconsin has scored easy TDs on 2 of 3 drives so far. Moving the ball at will.

Very untimely fumble on Michigan's opening drive on or near the Badgers 5 yard line by a player who had no prior carries this season. It nullified a marvelous pass by Patterson on the prior play.

I say this with absolutely no malice in my heart, but are you trying to tell me there was no one in the entire UM secondary who could catch up with a big lumbering 225 lb. RB rumbling-stumbling-bumbling 72 yards down the field? :rolleyes :rolleyes :rolleyes

It will be a moot point when they lose to Wisconsin next week by double digits.

Terrible game.

The Mason fumble when Michigan could have tied the game and the brutal reversal of the Bell catch changed the game. I know people are going to be screaming about the coaches, but there are still 9 games left. Wisconsin is a great team.

Indeed they are this year.

Notre Dame game is now must win, IMO. A respectable performance in a losing effort in Madison would've been OK. This is anything but!

As far as coaching goes, all I can ask is: why does this team look so fucking unprepared on both sides of the ball?

I have no answers. I'm just going to see how it plays out. No sense in getting the pitchforks out.

I've said before I've been a fan since 1969 and it pains me to say this but I believe they should fire Harbaugh tonight. I know it's not going to happen but it's what I believe. They are totally unprepared after 2 weeks.

Terrible comment. They have a clean program and he's winning at a clip higher than program historical winning percentage. They will regroup and compete. The turnover on the first drive and the bad call on the second were H*** factors.
