well that's just, like, your opinion, man
Simply, what went wrong? Was it the playcalling? The execution? The refs? The wind? Dirty plays? The 88% full moon (Waning Gibbous)? What are your thoughts? And before I get negged, the purpose of this post isn't to rag on anyone, I'm genuinely curious about your thoughts. And please, keep it sane. No personal attacks or any thing of the sort.
Personally, I think the defense played as well as it could have. They got the turnovers, they put the offense in positions to make something happen. The offense just couldn't get it done. Why the offense couldn't get it done? I think it had more to do with the play calling than the execution, although the execution wasn't pretty. We were able to move the ball running and then we suddenly switched to a passing offense. It made no sense. MSU was timing the snaps, yet we continued using the same snap counts. And that 4th down play call....deep breath.... I don't care how wide open the receivers would have been if Denard had time to throw. We needed a first down and MSU was giving it to us. We have Denard and an easy first down. WHY DO YOU PASS IT??? If someone has a legitimate answer, please tell me. The execution wasn't pretty at all, but I felt like the players were put into tough spots.
We could've/should've won that game. What went wrong?
Ugly uniforms for Sparty have become an annual tradition, unfortunately. But really? These bumblebee Michigan road uniforms are absolutely terrible.
I wasn't a huge fan of the UTL home uniforms, but I could deal with it as a one-time-only event. Is Michigan really going to become like every other school with lame third jerseys?
I'm seeing a lot of them, and no penalty flags. Is this bad officiating or am I missing something?
As always, I direct you to the LIVEBLOG on the front page, but for those who can't log into it, can't keep up, or just like the open format, here you go. Plus it saves maybe half of the halftime threads.
And if you're like me, you kinda switch back and forth between the two depending on which Michigan seems to be playing best while you're in it.
So i was just on youtube while i'm waiting for kickoff and found this and wanted to share, don't know ow old it is but i think it's pretty cool.
Here's how I spent my time waiting for the noon kickoff. That's what happens when your two-year old wakes you up at 7am on a Saturday.
Not too bad for a man and a jig saw.
Go Blue! Beat State!
