mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
It's the last play, fourth down and goal against Iowa this year. Denard Robinson throws a pass into the endzone. The reciever is interfered with and can't quite bring it in. No flag. Iowa wins. M records its second loss.
It's the last play, fourth down and goal against Iowa this year. Denard Robinson throws a pass into the endzone. The reciever is interfered with and can't quite bring it in. The yellow flags fly! Pass Interference! There will be one untimed down. Denard takes the shotgun snap and takes two steps towards the line. The defense lunges forward on his motion. Denard pulls up and lobs a short one to a TE that has snuck behind the linebackers. Touchdown! Michigan wins! The season ends as it otherwise did. The final record looks like so.
Western M - Win
Notre Dame - Win
Eastern M - Win
SDSU - WIn
Minnesota - Win
Northwestern - Win
#17 MSU - Loss
Purdue - Win
Iowa - Win
#20 Nebraska - Win

Compare that to some other 1 loss teams:
#2 Alabama - 1 loss to #1 LSU, 3 wins over ranked teams #6 Arkansas, #22 PSU, #25 Auburn
#3 Oklahoma State - 1 loss to Iowa State, 2 wins over #11 KSU, #19 Oklahoma
#4 Stanford - 1 loss to #5 Oregon, no #25 wins
I'm thrilled with our season and the Sugar Bowl, and I'm not going to dwell on an unthrown flag. We still wouldn't have gone to the BIG TEN championship game, by right of head to head versus MSU, and so we still wouldn't make the Rose Bowl. Sugar was certainly as good as we were going to do. I can't help but wonder, though, where would we have been ranked? I slot us in about #4.
Mahlzahn Was the offensive mastermind who used Cam Newton's skills to a tee.
Is it just me who is surprised he went to such a small school? Even though lack of Head coach experience, justs seems like a school with a little more prestige would take a chance on a guy who helped win a MNC.
EDIT: Sorry for the formatting from iPad.
EDIT II: Fixed.
I was looking through some Michigan Stadium pics and I realized that these weren't UTL pics beacuse you can see lights on a pole in one shot and the unfinished suites box in the other. Can someone identify the game(s)?
Edit: Just to clarify, not my handiwork. Found it on mgovideo who found it on mgoblue. Just putting it out there for the people.
I was looking to see if there was a press release about VT's practices, but the only decent article I could find was this one.
I kind of liked this quote from one of their DB's (as you can tell by my thread title).
"He's very explosive," Hokies safety Eddie Whitley said. "I even play with him on the video game. He's a dynamic player."
So Valenti and Foster bring up Meyer stealing Pittman from MSU. Mike says Mich and MSU are in trouble because Meyer is a recruiting monster. Now the topic is brought up by
1. MSU alum
2. MSU lost the recruit
3. MSU has had the better team for 4 years
and over the course of an hour I heard 15 Michigan callers, 0 MSU callers and when they added on the topic it became who will have the better record over the next 5 years Hoke or Meyer. I think when they brought it up the 3rd time Foster said throw Dantonio in there as well.
I know usual talk radio caveats apply to screening out normal calls and such , but I think it is interesting how little buzz MSU gets. I may have missed it but where was the Sparty outrage over losing a recruit to Ohio or not even being part of the discussion about the top team.
