well that's just, like, your opinion, man
Michigan hit as many field goals in their win against the Spartans as [Michigan] did the entire year of 2010.

Out of Michigan's 900 victories, only 21 of them have come on a game winning FG. Here is the complete documented history of these heart stoppers.
I'm relieved we won but this game just angered the hell out of me. Bitching about the OC is so cliche, but these seem so obvious. Can anyone disagree with the following?
1. 2 years ago Roundtree made a living off a play born off the sheer terror of our qb's legs. MSU had all 11 guys in the screen on several occasions. Why can't we try a play that had guys open for 15 yards? One time just try it please. I. Lewis was begging to get burned today. They were swarming Denard. I didn't see any reverses, or counter action to take advantage of that fact.
2. We have a throwback screen that works like a charm. We ran it today for an easy 20 yards. Are we saying they never gave us a similar defensive look that we couldn't try it again? When a play is that open you have to try it again or put a wrinkle or variation and burn their adjustment, to never come back to it when we are struggling is mind boggling. Same for the screen play that the MSU guy made a great play on. We had 3 blockers and a ton of space run it again.
3. Get Funchess involved. WTF? We have a weapon and we just let him waste away on the sidelines. He's a match up problem. Get him involved.
4. Maybe this is on Denard but we have to get a quick screen audible installed asap. Did you see that play at midfiled when they blitzed 2 db's off the edge and we just ran right into it? Just toss it to the edge. Indiana made MSU pay with bubble screens all half before they adjusted. We couldn't explore that at all as they A gapped blitzed all game?
This gameplan was very infuriating.
Denard/Borges Cuisine was like a rice cake with no water today. Pretty bland and hard to swallow.
Welcome back Mini Mealer
It could be the ugliest trophy in sports, though I do like the base: a map of Michigan.
But now it's back in Ann Arbor, and given the guy who scored all the points, I thought it needed freshening up....
"Full statement from Ohio State," per post at 11 Warriors:
Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller left the game against Purdue late in the third quarter. He was taken to the Wexner Medical Center, on the campus of The Ohio State University, because of concerns of a possible concussion. He was examined – head, shoulders and neck – and he has been cleared. He is symptom free of all ailments and he is doing fine. He is in the process of being released from the hospital.
