that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides
Previously Michigan was tied with Alabama with 1167 passing yards allowed. Following the Minnesota game, Michigan has given up 1314 yards through the air. Alabama has given up 262 so far to LSU with 6:44 remaining in the game, bringing their total to 1429. I'm damn proud of the defense this year, and having the top overall passing defense by yards going into week 11 is an astounding feat, especially with the loss of Blake Countess in week 1. Go Blue!
You lose to Nebraska, and your DC has to bring up Michigan
Narduzzi on Martinez: "He's faster than Denard, even though he thinks he's as fast as (Usain) Bolt. (Martinez is) flat-out faster."
edit: I guess in some fairness, he was asked to compare Martinez to Robinson. But to bring up the Bolt reference is just plain douchebag.
Don't look now, but Sparty is about to put us back in the Legends Division driver's seat. It's so great to cheer for Sparty, our team having made them inconsequential to the season other than serving Michigan's interest. They must be terribly conflicted over at RCMB.
In 2001, I watched a November game with a bunch of Michigan grads and we all joked about how brutal it is to get pumped over "bowl eligibility." One of the gals said "I will kill myself if I ever get excited over being bowl eligible." Of course we laughed, told her she was awesome, and never thought about it again.
Until 2008. And again in 2009. And again in OT against Illinois in 2010. After we won that game 700-698, I told myself I would never scoff at bowl eligibilty ever again.
This thread is an offering to the Bowl Eligibility gods. I understand that religion is taboo on this site, and I respect that. But I respect bowl eligibility more. Huzzah!
MSU helps us or sucks some more. Win-win. It's actually a pretty good day for games all around all day.
Mod Edit: Couldn't help editing the title. Staee! [zl]
