mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
I am stuck at the office on a saturday getting some stuff done...Last time this happened I remember for some reason I could not find a good place online to listen/watch the game.
Links/Advice would be much appreciated!
Plain and simple, who you got?
I'll take Bama. I don't think Lee's simple game management is going to be good enough to beat Bama's stifling D.
Nice to see former U-M receiver Tony Clemons score a TD against USC (not). He looked good on the 27 yd. play. Normally I like to see former players do well, but given the history here.....
Well I hate to be the one to start complaining already but ESPN has announced the crew for the Michigan game.
Play-by-Play = Dave Pasch
Color = Chris Spielman
Sideline Reporter = Quint Kessenich
After Spielman's terrible "commentary" earlier this year I am hoping the radio and tv sync up well tomorrow.
Edit: Changed the title so no one was mistaken that it could be Pam Ward, sorry for the scare.
Surprisingly, after a fairly lengthy search of the site, I have not found any reference to "Wolverine Olympics" anywhere. I'm knee-deep in Three and Out and, on page 149, Bacon references this competition that Rodriguez devised -
whereby the seniors drafted teams of eight players, then tried to get the most points - given out for touchdowns and tackles, attending classes, getting above a 3.0, visiting Mott Children's Hospital, and so on - and to avoid demerits.
(emphasis mine). Does anyone remember hearing about this competition? Does anyone know if the tradition is being continued under Hoke & Co?
Seems like a very cool way to hold the kids accountable to their teammates in a much more intimate way, all the while feeding their competitive spirit. A way to hold each other's feet to the fire in all aspects of their college life. Mostly, I am very surprised that we never discussed this (or even heard of it) as fans.
Original Picture Pages here. Analysis courtesy Brian, as usual. Now the slo-mo works but I'm back to non-lower-case lower case letters. Whatever.
Setup: Borges is setting up 'damned if you do, damned if you don't' situations. On the play prior to this one, Michigan sent Hemingway, Roundtree, and Grady to varying depths along the left sideline. The corner stepped up to take away Hemingway (running the middle depth of the three routes), but Roundtree beat the safety to the outside for a big gain. This play is designed to get one man open no matter which way the corner plays.
Wha'hoppon: Gallon is split left, Denard in the slot right, and Hemingway split right. Pre-snap, Junior motions in, and the defensive reaction reveals zone. On the snap, Gallon runs, well, I'm not sure - it might be a streak, or a fly, or a post, or a post-corner (#7). One safety steps up into a robber zone and the other forms a Cover-3 with the corners. Gallon's corner runs with him and the safety comes over. Hemingway runs what starts out as a deep in, I think (#6?), but continues it all the way across the field, getting free of the robber and being wide open in the spot vacated by the corner. The LBs are occupied by the threat of the end-around first, then a potential Denard wheel route second, which prevents them from dropping into the passing lane. Gardner finishes both fakes, has a quick lunch, tweets "no1 w/in 10yds of me lol wide open" and proceeds to throw into double coverage towards Gallon. Armpunt.
