Join for a live chat during the Michigan-Penn State football game

By Rich Rezler

Join for a live chat during the Michigan football game at Penn State tonight. Mike Rothstein will bring you details from the press box at Beaver Stadium in State College, Pa., while Rich Rezler moderates from a to-be-determined location in Ann Arbor.

We'll start up at 7:45 p.m. and continue through the end of the game.


3 And Out

Suzukisv (aka Robbie Webb / Scooter) claims that "nobody wanted to play for Carr".... wow, so 8 straight top 10 recruiting classes in his last 8 seasons... were filled with players that "didnt want to play for him"? LOL...whatever. The TRUTH is that the day Lloyd retired, he left 7 starters on defense, 8 starters on offense and the punter all coming back. The guys who "didnt want to play"....didnt want to play for Rich Rod. Not Carr. and that is a fact.

3 and out, Unlike you, I am willing to be pateint with RR. NOBODY WANTED TO PLAY FOR CARR. This explains the lack of talent on this team (D). I am a long time fan SICK of 3 yards and a cloud of dust (Bo never won an NC). It just does not cut it in the modern game (SEE Oregon and others). A "Michigan Man" WILL NOT Make a Difference in the NC hunt. I IS all about recruting in the modern game. STABILITY will draw the talent. Do You Realy Want Tressel Ball 2.0? SABOTAGE by the "Old Blues" has worked! Enjoy!

I wonder if Rich Rod is resigned to being fired? I would have expected some new wrinkles when you are fighting for your job not the same thing we've seen all year. If your going to give up the passing yards atleast don't give the 8-12 yard cushion. Too many easy throws that allowed PSU to keep making first downs.

The team was totally unprepared for tonights game. I think they read the Penn State is bad and believe it. Penn State isn't a bad team but they are a very average team. Two weeks to prepare and we still had the same mistakes, LB not getting of blocks, Corners playing soft, no pass rush, not much luck stopping the run, missed tackles, poor special teams play (but we did make a fieldgoal), penalties, dropped & missed pass opportunities on offense. I still love Michigan footbal and will watch every minute of every game but this one was tough to watch. I expected more especially after a by week.

3 And Out

Suzukisv...youve been blinded... Rich Rod has been a head coach for 17 seasons, not counting this one, and has had 6 losing seasons. That is 1/3 of his seasons (actually better than 1/3) are losing seasons....and that is a "great modern coach".... he is 4-16 in the Big Ten at MICHIGAN and has only won 11 BCS games since he has been here....yeah, great coach....great coach...uh huh.... maybe in Seinfeld Bizarro land, but not in reality. He is a decent OC for a spread offense with the right players in it and that is it.

I have reached my point in supporting this staff and honestly thinks that it is time to fire everyone and start over. How is it you have two weeks to prepare and you still look unprepared. I gave Rich Rod a lot of support but he has embarrassed this program for thelast time. I do not see Michigan getting to a bowl this year since they may only beat Purdue and finish 6-6. Sorry no longer good enough. Bring back Jim Herrmann and Jim Harbaugh, even though he will not come.


Sat, Oct 30, 2010 : 10:42 p.m.

i have been a richrod supporter but this game brought me to my boiling do you have 2 weeks to prepare and you go down by 21?i think if any game gets him fired it will be this one,this is a total disgrace.the only other time i felt helpless watching a defense allow big catches to no name players was on sundays watching the lions.time to start anew harbaugh come restore the honor of our program.


Sat, Oct 30, 2010 : 10:42 p.m.

Oh what could have been! The "Old Blues" have won! I know what will happen next. Since RR is not a "Michigan Man" he will be gone at the end of the season reguardless of what happens now. For Shame! This Guy IS a great modern coach! Remember 11-1 does not cut it in the NC hunt. The new Notre Dame (Always Rebuilding) is coming due to your(Alumni)Ignorance! Enjoy! What could have been.

Todd Blackledge got it right. It is really incredible how bad this defense is. What he did not need to say is that this is due to coaching. I realize Mike Martin was out. But the bye week changes looked worse out of the gate. I am a loyal fan and alumni of 40 years of weekends and I find it hard to watch.


Sat, Oct 30, 2010 : 10:37 p.m.

Whatever happened to defense after Bo? It started unraveling even with Carr, and I can't blame RR too much because he has put together an offense.... but I don't understand what happened to 100+ years of tradition with the defense after Bo.


Sat, Oct 30, 2010 : 10:34 p.m.

RR has never beaten a.500 team in the Big 10 conference. 1/2 his wins are against IU teams that are......1-11. Congrats, RR!


Sat, Oct 30, 2010 : 10:32 p.m.

a fan for 50 years and I've had enough. Michigan's D couldn't stop a one legged blind man.


Sat, Oct 30, 2010 : 10:29 p.m.

if rich rod has a job after that debocle,brandon should be fired too.


Sat, Oct 30, 2010 : 10:29 p.m.

three down lineman all night db's playing soft coverage and you wonder why we give up 30+? RR you just gave 4 weeks notice to the big ten. This staff has made poor teams look like top ten ranked teams. They have the defense set up for failure on every down. I can't even stand to watch another game only to hear commentators say how good this or that team is tonight against Michigan. Maybe they should take the wings off everyone's helmets because they certainly don't deserve to wear them.

Dj vu

Barnz I hope your right. 3 years of the worst defenses in Michigan history. We need a real coach not a gimmick offense.
