The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
I've read a lot of opinions around here about Denard's inaccuracy in the first half but no one has mentioned the deep post route that Hemingway ran (similar to his be completion from the Western game) and Denard aired out but hit the turf four or five yards from Hemingway.
To me and the two friends I came with it looked like a beautifully placed throw. We were sitting in the south endzone 80 rows up with the play going away from us; we had pretty damn good view of the route and the throw. It looked like Hemingway ran the wrong route, maybe a semi-circle rather than a straight cut, and if he had cut straight to the ball and not let up he easily should have been able to get to it.
I'm not sure what it looked like on TV but I'm guessing it looked like a bad throw. To me it looked like it put exactly where it should have during his Western completion to Hemingway he "left short". I'm curious if anyone else remembers that through who was in the south part of the stadium and if they agree or thing Hemingway did run the right route.
who are you rooting for? I think I'll root for Notre Dame.
Notre Dame started the trend of terrible RAWK music videos with the one we all laughed at last year. And whether you like it or not, we now have Pop Evil's Michigan version. But the University of Florida has taken the cake with this traveshamockery:
Thinking about the game, is anyone expecting huge RPS scores (positive and negative) from the defensive UFR? The schemes seemed very creative and effective on the two INTs, but there were also many, many picked up blitzes and runs right into a backpedalling Martin.
This reminds me of what Mike Lombardi calls "Battleship Defense" in the NFL. The way he tells it, defenses that can't keep up will try to call the perfect play every time. When it hits, boom INT. When it misses...
I just got an email indicating that Fancam is now working. Try this link, which loaded.
