Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
Calling all Michigan fans in DC...
Does anyone know of a bar that'll have the game on Saturday? My cable was just knocked out yesterday (dumb shit roommate!!!) and Comcast can't get here to fix it until next Monday.
Being near a metro stop is preferable but obviously seeing the game is my #1 priority so anywhere short of Baltimore is okay with me.
Apparently via press release
For those of us who will be watching the game from our homes/bars/jails, the Michigan/UConn game will be covered by Sean Mcdonough and local hero Matt Millen on ABC/ESPN2. Heather Cox is on the sideline, so at least you have that going for you.
Also, College Gameday is in Atlanta for UNC vs. LSU. That game should be interesting, what with North Carolina no longer having a defense or anything.
After reading the secondary preview today and being reminded of those WR screens that killed us in the MSU game, I'm wondering how we can stop those. Everything we've read about the defensive philosophy this year seems to indicate that we'll be doing a lot of zone blitzes, which will send 1 or 2 of the LBs in a pass rush and have the rest of the D sitting back in zone. I can just see us getting torched time after time for 8 yard pick-ups just like on this play. Someone talk me off the ledge and explain how we are going to be able to stop this stuff. I'm guessing the 'overhang' players (spur and bandit) will have some sort of responsibility in the flats there. As a sidenote - what exactly was this defensive call trying to accomplish?? Both DBs on the bottom half of the screen are 8-10 yards off the line and immediately start backpedaling.
Hi all, I will be travelling to Toronto for the Labor Day weekend but still need to watch the UConn football game. I already checked the Alumni Association website to see if there are any chapters in Canada/Toronto but none were listed. Do any of you know where I will be able to watch the game, preferably with other UM fans and close to downtown (where I'm staying)? Thanks for the help!
It looks like Illinois has been hit by the by the secondary injury nuke too:
Phil Steele said today on ESPN radio that he full expects Michigan to win 8 games and go to the Gator Bowl.
I have heard the name and might have read some of his work in his preview magazine. ESPN was pumping him up as being the most reliable of anyone in the college game in predicting teams seasons ahead of time.
Do you all agree that he is more knowledgable then most?
Does what he says carry more weight then the your average dude like Huge, Ray Bentley, Kirk Herbstreet or whomever? Or his he just another talking head?
I won't ask if this gives you more or less confidence in the season, but answer that too if you want.
