"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
Maimi at Jacksonville at 1 pm.
Cause the only way to dull the pain is to root for the Jaguars. This can't go badly.
EDIT: previously neg bang.
108 yards on 18 carries and a catch for 10.
NFL is stupid about embeding highlights, but check out video of his 40 yard run here: http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/2014102603/2014/REG8/dolphins@jaguars#menu=drivechart&tab=videos
misery loves company. bring back the liveblog
(sorry if it's already been covered and I just missed it)
Gareon Conley has decomitted as being reported by various people on the twittersphere. Mattison was at his school today. Commence death and dispair.
Also hearing that he will take an OV to OSU, Cincinatti, and here. All is not completely lost.
Well, I've got nothing left. I watched that game and after three years of hoping that we would take the world by storm, I'm now just hoping that we'll win one more game. I can't even believe it.
I know many of you are in exactly the same boat. I like to tell my friends that at least understand sports that before 2008, the last time Michigan missed a bowl, I wasn't born. I hope they understand that losing just wasn't part of my DNA, particularly when it comes to my college team. Now it's been just about 3 years since we actually had a post season. I don't know how I'd endure another absence. I'm sure you've said something similar to your friends.
Don't you just want to punch the folks who don't think this is a big deal? Or who decide they're going to be a fair weather fan so they can irk you? I've got a bet with someone like that (yeah, I guess I asked for it) and I am not looking forward to paying it off because after 2 years of pain, I was hoping for a little redemption - I guess not.
So, back to present, it's hard for me not to think that the confidence of the team is now gone. I'm glad they battled back, but I don't know how this will go. I fear an implosion will lead to a loss of recruits, which leads to another 3 years of frustration. Can we survive a coaching change without a "lost generation?" Could this really go on 6 years? is it possible that we won't beat OSU for a decade? Is there any other option than to make a change after going 4-16 in conference? I just want to be sick.
And I'm just some fan. I can't imagine what it is like for a player. To be somewhere between 18 and 22 and to have your heart stomped after being so close so many times.
I just want Michigan to win - it's all I want. If I could go out and play to help them win, I would. But I'm too old, slow, fat, weak to do that. All I can do is cheer. I guess that is what I want you to do - just cheer them on. Make sure you do what you can so we have 5 more games instead of 4. After that, the situation will take care of itself.
Thanks for hearing my rant. I hope that, in some small way, it makes you feel better that you're not the only one wrecked over this football team. Keep that hope alive - Go Blue.
