Up 52 - 3 with 3(-ish?) minutes left, LSU has first and goal on the one yard line. Les takes a knee four straight times to give the ball back to Ole Miss.
I get not trying to run it up, but isn't that way more insulting than running your offense while giving some hard-working walk-ons/benchwarmers the highlight of their lives?
Pending the outcome of the Oklahoma game, it's conceivable that LSU, Alabama and Arkansas will be 1,2 and 3 this week, basically sealing an all-SEC championship.
That's effin' correct, his our guy and we love him best . . .
"He's a stutter (step) guy," Nebraska defensive coordinator Carl Pelini said. "Early in the game, when he really hurt us with his feet -- those were times when we just broke down."
You saw what I saw. The 6-foot, 195-pound Robinson stutter-stepped. A defender hesitated. He ran round the defender.
And, boy, can he run.
He slithers through crevices.
He bursts through gaggles of tacklers -- sometimes it appears they're momentarily mesmerized by his quickness.
He explodes for sizable gains on broken plays.
He carried 23 times for 83 yards and two touchdowns -- numbers that don't bowl you over. Let's just say he looked more impressive in person than he did on the stat sheet.
On the week of Thanksgiving, it is important to look back and consider what we are thankful for, both as human beings and Michigan football fans.
I am thankful for Brady Hoke, our tremendous head coach. I am thankful for Mattison, our NFL DC who turned things around so much more quickly than anyone could have ever imagined. I am grateful for Borges, who despite some disagreements we have had this season, seems to have quite a pair on him when calling plays.
I am thankful for Mike Martin, Ryan Van Bergen, Troy Woolfolk, and the rest of the seniors for sticking with it through the most tumultuous career any players have ever had at Michigan. I am thankful for Jordan Kovacs and his inspiring story. I am grateful for Denard, Fitz, and the rest of the team, for representing the program in a way that would make Bo proud, and for sacrificing as much of their time as they do so that we may enjoy our Saturday afternoons.
I am thankful for 9-2 and a shot at a ten-win season. I am grateful for a possible chance to play in a BCS bowl for the first time since '06. I am thankful for the direction this program is heading, and the quality young men it will continue to shape. But most of all, I am thankful for a chance to smack Ohio State in the mouth, stand over them, and let them know that “WE’RE BACK!”
What's everyone drinking tonite? I am starting on a 6'er on Bell's Cherry Stout. One of my favorite winter beers the last couple years.
I am watching the USC / Oregon game and a ref called an incomplete pass (just a miscommunication between quarterback and receiver) as intentional grounding. Nuts, just nuts, I say. To me, any ref that makes this boneheaded a call deserves to be fired on the spot. And I don't even care for either team but it's just so terrible because every overthrown ball or miscommunication becomes intentional grounding.
But I pause because I haven't been watching all the games and maybe there was a worse one today. I thought I'd start this thread to help determine the winner of the Worst Call Of The DayTM and wonder if anyone saw a more heinous call.
