So in celebration in my pasing the 500 point mark (long time lurker) I thought I'd post something fun. As opposed to another "When will DB announce OMG recruits are gonna run" Topic.
Someone with a better memory and or google skills can probably point to the exact game I believe it was 2004 possibly 2005. I know it was against Minnesota, Michigan was up late with very little time on the clock. A stout defense just broke Minnesota's qb and they brought in a young back up. Everyone in the stadium except possibly our defense coordinator knew Minnesota wasn't going to throw and when we went into prevent I had that sick feeling we were about to witness something awful. With damn near no seconds left the Minnesota RB scooted up the right sideline for what looked like 200 yards and sealed the game for a heart breaker.
I turned off the tv in disgust and left my small one bedroom apartment putting on my Michigan hat and decided to go to Best Buy to grab some sad music to possibly hang myself to. Walking in was no treat as they lined the right aisle with new tv's all showing the "incredible run" I turned my head and made eye contact with an employee who upon seeing my hat left his register and said hey man you could use a hug. So there I was in the middle of the enterance hugging a 6'5 black man barely holding back the tears. I was not hard edge that day my friends. So whats your best/worst after game story?
So the genie gives you one to choose from...
A home Wisconsin win, in front of the Michigan Faithful, with some recruits, on Senior Day
A road win over chief rival OSU and Pryor to end their streak against us
As much as I'd like it to be OSU, I almost feel Wisky is the more important. I think our fanbase really needs the win in our own stadium, to help further turn around some of the doubters. I think OSU is still the perceived "better" team in the conference, and the "heat" for losing to them would less considerable.
I don't even know what the line is, but I would have taken the Rockets and the points.
After looking, it's only -9.5. I still like it. Rockets have been quietly having a really good season. The game against Notre Dame was equally their good play as it was ND's, well, usual play.
Rockets just struck. 6-0, PAT pending.
I don't mean for this to sound cryptic, or sound like I'm holding back info but I have heard from a few people that Michigan may now be in the driver's seat with WR Sammy Watkins.
I have also heard that Watkins may make his decision sooner than the Army All American game. This isn't 100% yet, and as everyone knows this can all change in an instant. So don't take this as set in stone, just something to note. He might announce sooner, he might wait, Dallas went back and forth with the same thing so we'll see what happens.
