here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
Didn't see if Dileo ever got a shot. Was Gallon yanked after that flub? Can't believe that happened again.
I am fortunate enough to have tickets in the new club seats. For those who have not been in the seats, there are 3 speakers per section that face us in the crowd and play the miked band and what little Rawk music there was. Since there are only 8 rows of seats the sound bounces off the glass behind us and the noise level is very high. I am wondering if people in the regular seats found that the decibel level was considerably higher than anything last season. I am hoping so because despite being farther away from the field I screamed like crazy.
I thought the game was great and wouldn't change much of anything. My daughter (16) thinks there should have been more Rawk music and less band. I'm more of a traditionalist and feel if the band is audible, I am very happy to have them provide the music rather than piped in music.
Anyway, please let me know what those of you in the stands thought of the noise level. BTW, I loved the fireworks and the Brock walk. I don't think there was a dry eye in the house.
Keith Jackson narrates the rededication video. Best part: hearing a new take on "Hello Heisman."
I'm not going to attempt to analyze this on my own. Begin internal discussion and panic.
“All you need to know is I’m out.” - Tate Forcier
Less than a minute had passed since theMichigan football team beat Connecticut, 30-10, in the season opener and sophomore quarterback Tate Forcier appeared to make his decision.
Through his words and his body language, he had no interest in remaining at Michigan. When asked if he had a minute, he responded with those eight words.
Those eight words said a lot.
As the rest of his teammates celebrated a win, Forcier looked like he lost. He spent most of the game sitting on the bench, a towel alternating between his shoulders and wrapped around his head as he watched fellow sophomore quarterback Denard Robinson run through, over and past a fairly hapless Connecticutdefense.
In those moments, Forcier looked like he wanted to be anywhere but Michigan. After the win, he went straight up the tunnel. He was the third person spotted out of the Michigan locker room, hugged a few people and began to walk off.
He blew off fans attempting to get autographs, instead jumping on his cell phone and searching for family and friends
The ever reliable TomVH did, in fact, post a conversation with Mike Forcier, so here's the link. Quotes and what not can be found there.
so who cried at the opening of the game during the walk? I thought it was freakin awesome, and definitely teared up. Not sure how much they showed on tv, but it was cool. Great flyovers too. Really the only thing that wasn't great was the one piped-in Journey song! Great game, Go Blue, we are undefeated!
I just have to say how continually impressed I am with Denard.
He was so humble in the post-game interview, and so geniunely happy and delighted about the win, and when the reporter told him to go enjoy the victory, the way he said, "Thank you, alright!" just had so much sincerity and humility in his voice. It was almost as if the magnitude of what he had achieved on the field today had just begun to sink in for him at that exact moment. Seeing that was cool. And he had no arrogance or pretension whatsoever. What a great moment for the kid, and for the team. The fact that he worked hard, made improvements in the offseason, and that paid off for him in such dramatic fashion today.... just exemplifies everything that is truly good about collegiate athletics.
He just seems like a really good kid, I'm proud that he wears maize and blue!!
