mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
Still a few games to go but you have to imagine Bama is the odds on favorite to play in the title game where they will proceed to destroy ND. Bama is a good team, and might even be the best team in the nation (certainly looked that way before the A&M game). Although it's annoying that the SEC is going to play in the title game again for sure now (if not Bama then Georgia) I can't really complain abou them deserving it.
Here's my question though, when was the last time a program caught this many breaks this late in the year to win titles back to back? Alabama didn't win its division last year, wins the title. Alabama behind three undefeated teams in week 11 and #1 and #2 lose (#1 loses by 30 to an unranked team?!) A great team for sure but I've never heard of a program getting such luck with how things have shaken out for them back to back years.
K-state is not going to make it to unbeaten; Oregon looks unlikely too that it would maintain unbeaten.
Of course USC is waiting for ND but USC looked just plain ordinary.
Alabama will meet (and beat) Auburn (hey, give us Derick Green!), and it will beat Georgia for SEC championship.
Of all scenarios, an Alabama-ND match probably is the worst that Brian Kelly can get.
What am I, a resident of the WORST STATE EVER, hoping for?
A vintage MICHIGAN win.
The perfect storm has been set for a revival of the amazing caps to the seasons of the 90s; a decent Michigan team meets an undefeated ohio team & ruins the hopes of the scarlet & gray...
underrated Michigan stars (see Biakabutuka) face off against Heisman candidates & outshine the latter...
ecstatic fans loyal tothe "best coach on the planet" begin to call for his resignation because of one perennial loss...
& "They do the talkin', we do the walkin!"
It would be so sweet.
What could make this one of the sweetest wins against ohio is the fact that THIS is their bowl game; if they lose this game, there will be no redeeming possibilities for them in January.
Also,A Moment of Silence Must Be Observed.
Where were you when you heard that you would never ever have another Twinkie, Orange Cupcake, Funny Bone, or Drake's Coffee Cake?
I don't like the idea of this brave new world that we will live in, but I can only hope that one day the brand will be revived.
Why this part is not OT; This bankruptcy can somewhat be attributed to Denard Robinson; he cut junk food out of his diet back in the summer; http://www.annarbor.com/sports/um-football/denard-robinson-has-cut-out-t...
Man, he must have eaten alot of Twinkies before...
In closing, Go Blue, help me forget the news of one of the worst crimes against snack foods since trans fats were outlawed... But more importantly, Beat ohio!
There is a nice article at "The Wolverine" on the win and the seniors last day, entitled "Here and now trumps the way we were."
(Edit: Bad link fixed.)
It must be very hard for Denard, Kovacs, Demens, and all the seniors to say goodbye to the Stadium for the last time as football players at Michigan. The last 5 years have been the most tumultuous of my tenure as a Michigan fan. I'm very glad to see the team where they are now, and I look forward to many good years to come. And I can't thank the seniors enough for all they've done. Bravo!
Bo left us 6 years ago today. Hard to believe it has been that long.
I'm sure he is proud of what he saw today and loves the job Brady is doing. Restoring the Michigan defense and transitioning the offense back to what Bo once ran.
Hope he enjoyed the game today next to Fielding Yost, Friz Crisler, Bob Ufer and other great Michigan Men in "football's valhalla" as Ufe once put. Hopefully he can watch another Michigan victory next week as well and have bragging rights with woody.
Thanks Bo, for all that you did in your time with us.
Starting at Nebraska, it seems like we've started letting punts roll to our detriment, even when they could be caught, and sometimes even returned. Maybe just a case of confirmation bias, or maybe we've just been getting really bad luck with the rolls, but it sure seems like we are letting a lot of yards/field position get away from us.
