Our offense struggles against athletic defenses. Our defense isn't as good as our ratings might indicate, it has more to do with our slow tempo on offense.

Many of the people talking trash are those that our Sparty neighbors like to call "Wal-Mart Wolverines"-people who never attended the school, but buy the gear at Wal-Mart and talk about the team using "We" and "Us". Personally, I'm hoping for a competitive game, but believe we'd need several breaks, i.e. turnovers, to make that happen.

There is quite a bit of disdain for the SEC as a whole, based on things like oversigning and what is perceived as lots of corruption/improper benefits-we all assume that all of your schools are cheating, while ours don't. (Except for Ohio State, of course.) Whether it's truth or not, that's where it comes from. NOBODY has disdain for the quality of football you play, though...

My Brother is a big time Michigan fan & we had this discussion the other day. He points to Alabama and the way Saban over signs recruits (he is about as bad about it as they get). Also a couple of years ago when Houston Nutt signed 35 kids or something like that. Here is my answer.

Suck it up.... Why in the hell is a Michigan fan (my brother not you Jeff) complaining about recruiting in the SEC. Shit man you guys are ranked 5th in the nation right now in recruiting. The kids have to know that if they are one of 6 linebackers being recruited in this years class that the chance of ever playing for that team would be slim. They have to have their parents, their coaches, other coaches etc..... warning them that they may not make the roster.

Also, not even 2 years ago Slive decided to put a cap on recruits to stop the over signing stuff. I know that the Big 10 hates the SEC, no new news, and it is obvious, but equally an SEC team like ours could see Big 10 fans as being arrogant, whiny & spoiled. I can't tell you how many times I have had to hear about how freaking great the Rose Bowl is.

So here it is, either change your self imposed rules to match the SEC or quit bitching.

Most people up there also think the majority of people in South Carolina are racist rednecks. Just because a bunch of idiots believe something to be true does not make it so.

24.

I go to school in Pittsburgh and there's a lot of Michigan fans up here. Most are alums, but some aren't. Like most B1G fans, they absolutely hate the SEC. Most admit that they'll probably lose this game though and blame the OC. What worries me is that Michigan has more to play for; Beating a top-ten SEC team would give Michigan and the B1G a lot of cred. Michigan is a big name, but I'm not sure that alone will help motivate our guys.

You think Hoke will let Lewan go one-on-one with Clowney?

If Hoke is the OC, then I would definitely blame him for that mistake.

I do pull for Michigan and have no problem with them. However, this New years, this will not be the case!!

But thanks for a nice post. Excited to see us play a historically rich team. Yall (You guys for the Michigan people..damn yankees lol jk), aren't like it used to be but still well respected. Looking forward to a great game!

Oh, and don't worry, I hate Ohio St too!!

Default Michigan fans dont seem very thrilled.

Noticing on the Michigan boards there is very little talk about the game at all. One Michigan fan said they were less than thrilled about the Outback. Interesting.

Their ambivalence is understandable considering that many "Go Blue" folk thought they would be a factor in this year's National Championship race.

Technically, I guess they were a factor. They helped jump start Alabama's season in that beat-down at "Jerry's World" in week 1.

I think they've sold more tickets than we have, and we're a heck of a lot closer to Florida than they are. There must be some interest.
