Peppers at 10, which seems low.
So -- this is what I got from the B16 game film:
To me, it looks like Paige caught the pass, and then Hill got his hand in and knocked it out. I don't think I'm going way out on a limb or breaking any ground here. I was wondering if there are any other images/videos of this that we can immortalize. Can anyone point me in the direction of something better than a play filmed from 100000 yards away mostly covered up by a scorebox?
Also, lets just take a moment to see how sad Paige is after that play. Poor guy. I wouldn't ever wish that sinking feeling on anyone, but better them than me (because obviously me, as a spectator, would have felt worse than he did if the outcome was reversed).
EDIT: updated title for more clarity
I know we decided that we had no more fucks to give the Lions after spending them all yesterday... but they're beating the Packers 9-3 at Lambeau. Worth a thread.
Question for WH:
For Michigan football - In three of the last four games, the last play of the game decided the outcome.
Has this been a similar run before?
It was not pretty. At times it was downright painful. But we got the win against a team who's offense did what NO ONE has done to our D this year and has been in it with tough opponents all season.
We might not control our own destiny, but Harbaugh has instilled a fire and drive to win and compete that this team has lacked for a very long time. We've got 8 wins (and 3 on the road, which has been difficult for us to do since Carr retired) and we're still in a position to compete for a B1G Championship. This team is on the right track and I'm grateful where the program is headed.
Now let's beat Penn State.
You'll look at Indiana and dismiss them a bit. They couldn't win in conference play, including a loss to a Rutgers team that Michigan beat in the first quarter. Wins against titans like Wake, Western Kentucky, and Southern Illinois aren't too inspiring.
Alas. 40% of those losses come to undefeated teams that Indy played very close. I watched the loss to Michigan State, and though it appears lopsided, and it was in upset territory until the last 5 minutes or so. With games against Maryland and Purdue, Michigan could very well be playing a bowl-eligeable team this week.
There is a can full of expletives, none of them joyful, and I fear it will be opened on Michigan. With Penn State and The Game just after, I find myself concerned.
WHAT SAY YOU?

SB Nation has a top 25 composite ranking that uses the AP Poll, Coaches Poll, S&P+, Massey, and witchcraft.
OSU, Clemson, Baylor, and LSU are the top 4 (same as last week). MSU is at 8 (+3) and we've fallen one spot to #13.
