Denard and Tate both have the uncanny knack of giving me a heart attack on 3rd downs. Both of these guys refuse to take the easy 1st down. Maybe it is their aggressiveness that makes them great or maybe they are just reading their keys, but guys please just tuck the ball and get the 1st or dump the 3yd pass and move the chains. They've done it their whole careers, but today was just ridiculous.
Most times they pull it off, but the few that don't just make me sick. I'm hoping it's just youth and understanding game situations, but what an exciting duo.
Do you guys think the same or am I on an island with Brian Griese?
Our freshman punter/occasional pk, Will Hagerup, gets a personal foul for mixing it up with with an Illinois strong safety after the whistle after a kickoff.
You rock, Will. That's a football player.
Getting absolutely curb stomped by KANSAS STATE? Looks like they have a real shot to finish up 5-7. Looks like we might be able to add a couple games margin to our all-time wins record.
"If the Michigan job opens up, Harbaugh will be the head coach in Ann Arbor"
Herbie just uttered this sentence during the Stanford v Arizona broadcast.
Knowing Herbie's penchant for being wrong about this subject, I'd say we're good to go with RR.
First game I can remember that Carl Grapentine wasn't behind the stadium mic for the MMB. A friend in the press box told me he has a non-life threatening illness that prevented him from traveling from Chicago this week. Hope he makes a speedy and full recovery and is back where he belongs for Wisconsin. He added to his duties as the MMB announcer when he took over the play-by-play announcing for Howard King several years ago.
If the play-by-play voice sounded familiar to you today, it was Bobb Vergiels who is the PA announcer for the Detroit Tigers. Kept waiting for him to announce that Curtis Granderson was taking over in centerfield.
