    What is hard to understand? I would laugh at an embarrassment that badly for a favorite if it was anyone. You guys acting like this is a new phenomenom and only specific to Michigan losses is so Michigan it hurts.

    MSU vs Bama
    OSU vs Clemson
    OSU vs Iowa
    OSU vs Purdue
    And now OSU vs Michigan

    But yeah, we are showing our ass by laughing at the national blowout embarrassment like every fanbase does about every other national stage blowout

    Michigan fans really struggling with completely routine behavior from outside fanbases. None of this abnormal or “weird” as some of you so passive-aggressively want to insist it is.

    There’s also a small part of me that would love to take some laps, maybe even a bath in the pool of Celemo tears, but I’m always too happy and giddy to follow through with rubbing it in.

    I was really excited to go back to work tomorrow and ask the 2-3 UM fans there how their weekend was in the most passive aggressive manner possible, but I woke up to an outlook reminder that I scheduled a vacation day for Monday. Guess I’ll just have to rewatch the game all day to stay primed for Tuesday instead.

    Good morning #Michigan Wolverines fans. Your defense gave up 62 points to OSU, you lost your 14th out of last 15 to them, and you’ve still never played for a conference championship. Must fucking suck to suck.

    But at least you have Harbaugh. The greatest coach ever.

    As a Michigan fan, I've gotten a lot of practice getting laughed at for losing to OSU, and I understand what you're saying. I agree with you that it isn't weird for outside fanbases to laugh and talk shit about the misfortunes of others. It happens all the time. We all do it.

    Where I think I disagree with you is, when you're the one getting laughed it, I don't think "weird" is the wrong word to describe it. If OSU goes to the playoff and gets murdered by Bama, won't it be at least a bit "weird" to you if/when Michigan fans talk shit to the point where they act like it was them that beat OSU, and at the very least act like yesterday didn't happen? It makes sense with the rivalry, but isn't there still probably a part of you thinking "Really? You're going to talk shit to me right now after what we did to your team?" I'm not speaking about any specific fan base or every post with this stuff, but it's just certain posts where it kind of hits you like that.

    This isn't just a UM thing for me. I found it odd a few years ago when Farva and some OSU fans talked shit almost every day for 8 months because MSU got shutout in the playoff. Granted, I'm probably wired differently than a lot of others on here when it comes to this stuff, but these are my thoughts. I wish you all a blessed day.

    Yeah, I just don't get that GB. I'm proud to be a Penn State fan (I know, I know). So if I'm at a different college game or event, I like to represent my fandom. Not sure what's so weird about it. Last night I was at a huge SC-Clemson party where everyone was wearing colors of one team or the other. I wore Penn State stuff and had people talking to me about them most of the night. It was fun. Also it was funny because three different people asked if we were in the B1G Championship since we beat Maryland. I had to sadly explain that we lost to both OSU and Michigan this season.

    I think I'm good with ours. My expectation was 11-1 or 12-0, B1G Champs, and Playoff qualifier.

    Though the season has gone nowhere like I anticipated, we are still 11-1 with the opportunity to win the B1G and make the playoffs. If we don't make the playoffs, I can accept that because we shouldn't get ass fucked by Purdue.

    I kind of looked at it as OSU can still salvage it but is currently behind preseason expectations. Michigan maybe met expectations but has a bad taste in their mouth. PSU is about at the low end of expectations. Wisconsin woof. MSU—that O. Iowa likely hopes for more. Minnesota and Purdue roughly met expectations and each had a big win to satisfy fanbases but also had enough moments to disappoint. Nebraska probably feels good about direction but missing a bowl was short of consensus expectations.

    I fucking hated this season. More than JLS which at least always turned to comedy, more than 3-9 which I came to accept pretty early on. It was clear that team wildly sucked and just had a weird mojo. I didn’t have playoff expectations with this team, but I thought we should win 10. We really fucking wasted this defense and I loathe every offensive coach sans WR.

    I would be satisfied. I'll still have a slight sour taste in my mouth as this appeared to finally be the year we could get rid of our demons with OSU, but we went 3-0 through the middle of our schedule that everyone said was going to define Harbaugh. And we'll finish ranked higher than we started the season. I still think we can't get to that next level unless some changes are made on offense. They refused to mold the offense to Patterson’s strengths which was making throws while rolling out and that concerns me going forward. We also need to at least play some zone at times so that when we go against teams that try and isolate our LBs on their RBs in coverage or pick on a certain CB we have a way of giving them support. Penn State did it last year and OSU did it this year. It’s Brown’s scheme biggest weakness if our line isn’t getting pressure. But overall we’re in a better place than we were when we started the year.

    Assuming we win on Saturday, I’m good with OSU. The defense has frustrated the hell out of me, but this passing game has been unlike anything I have seen.

    Yesterday was great. Playoffs or not, I’m good if we win. We’ve only been to the Rose Bowl three times in the last 35 years.

    I do think the MSU coaches deserve some level of slack for the injury issues so it’s hard to define what success would have been for this group. But clearly, we fell well short of success regardless with the ridiculous losses to Nebraska, ASU, and Rutgers. Some credit back for the PSU game when nobody thought we could keep it close.

    But part of the failure is how both the wins and the losses looked. I really do think the defense was capable of playing with anyone in the conference this year, but offensively I think the attrition especially at wr caught up to us and the coaches gave the limited group no favors...lack of a strong OL, rb, qb injury issues, and another botched qb controversy compounded it. There is no excuse for MSU putting an offense that bad out injuries, limited depth, or otherwise. You could make an argument it was the worst unit in the country by the end of the year. Insane.

    All in all, massive failure of a year.

    On the coaching change issue, it’s pretty clear Ohio State needs major changes on defense.

    Schiano should have been at Tennessee this year and I think he moves on as DC. Meyer has had the best man in his wedding as a coaching disaster at LB the last two years, so who knows if that change gets made.

    I think most of us are hoping Schiano and Davis move on and Marcus Freeman comes over from Cincinnati to coach the linebackers and fix the defense.

    Only other assistant that might be in trouble is the OL coach Studwara, but with the line playing better the past few weeks, we're probably stuck with him for another couple years.

    *obviously when Meyer makes it official, we'll have some other vacancies to fill

    He's been hurt. He's been a good player the last couple years. He just hasn't been an impact player, which is what he was supposed to be.

    Not sure if that's due to injury or if he's just a great athlete who doesn't have the pass rush moves to be better in that area.

    1) Bad shoulder for the last year-plus of his UM career; will be interesting to see what the NFL thinks when they take a look at it
    2) Doesn’t have an effective secondary pass rush move (resulting in getting himself too far upfield too often)
    3) Resisted moving inside even as a change-up; where he’ll quite likely play in the NFL anyway
    4) Was double teamed frequently, especially last season when he was healthy

    Freak athlete. Was not as productive as he could’ve been at UM.

    Because he plays the wrong position at his own insistence. I wrote a long post on our board about this a couple months ago but the gist is that Gary should be a DT but he refuses to. He was rated the #1 player coming out of high school because he was expected to play DT but got to college and saw all these rush ends getting drafted as top picks and wanted to do that also. So he insists that he plays DE even though his body type is built for a 3 tech DT. He weighs 15-25 lbs more than guys like Bosa, Watt, Clowney etc. and that slows him down just enough that he doesn't get to the QB in time. He's still been good at forcing the QB over to Winovich on the other side but that strength would be much better suited at helping collapse the pocket in the middle.

    It’s crazy to see this 2019 DL draft class, all guys that will seemingly be first rounders, had basically no production this season. Gary, Bosa, Oliver

    Sucks to get that talent and not really get to bear the fruits of it.

    Early entrant possibilities for PSU:
    DE Shareef Miller - Likely
    OL Connor McGovern - Toss-up/likely
    OL Ryan Bates - Toss-up/unlikely
    RB Miles Sanders - Toss-up/likely

    Those are the only 4 really considering or that would even be in the mix to consider. Miller comes from a bad home situation and just needs the money. Sanders may go due to a bad RB draft class if he gets a decent grade. McGovern would be the more likely of the 2 OL. I’d say more likely both return than both declaring.
