that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides
After watching the game on Saturday, I was hit with an epiphany not unlike Einstein when he happened upon Relativity. I haven't faxed over my data to Stephen Hawkins or the guys that wrote Elegant Universe. However, i do believe that i have identified the missing piece to Unified Theory. It is the newly discovered Denardian Effect. the problem that has been snickering at physics all these years, are the incongruities betwixt Newtonian and Quantumn Physics. Then String theory came along, but as yet has been unproven. Now with the Denardian effect we can see that mulitiplicitiescan coexist in the multiverse when Dilithium is present. Not just any dilithium mind you , but rather dilithium Nitrate. the nitrate end stabilizes the dilitium in our oxygen rich environment.the nitrate is obviously stored in the dreads.this would explain the game against Uconn.he was moving so fast in our part of the multiverse ( our side of the string) that it phase shifted the Uconn Defense to another string trapping it in a gravity well.So he was effect occupying two strings at once. This is why Matt Millen was able to call " There's six" before the play completely developed. Therefore validating string theory, and creating Unified theory. If any of you super smart science guys wanna chime in on my theory i am willing to share the Nobel Prize money with you. P.S. if you have Stephen hawkins email cc this post, I am sure he wants to be informed.
So I live in Chicago and was just walking down the street rocking a Michigan shirt. An old man pointed at the big block M on my chest and said 'Hey, good school!' I stopped and talked for him for a few minutes. He told me that he used to play football for Michigan under Fritz Crisler. The guy didn't give me his full name, but he told me that since he's Jewish, Crisler didn't think the fans would be supportive of him playing. So Crisler just started calling him 'The Dutchman' (I guess Crisler didn't think the Dutch could be Jewish? I don't know).
Anyway, I think he said he was a fullback. He had some pretty detailed stories of playing for Crisler in front of 98,000 people (was aware that the stadium now holds over 113,000) and was on the ball about the current team. Does anyone know if this is a real player or if I've just been Googling a senile old man's fictional past for the last half hour?
So, I usually hate Dinardo, but today he was spot on. Both C-Mart and the other guy (NW alum) stated that more pressure was on us this Saturday rather than ND. Dinardo blows the thing up stating that this is the 3rd most important rivalry game for Michigan (I don't completely agree, but I would much rather beat osu and msu than nd right now, not historically, but this year for sure). C-Mart then carries on about needing this for RR's job security and needing 8 possibly 9 wins to save his job. I know that this is a common theme amongst MSM, but I am starting to wonder about conspiracy theories. Anybody want to make predictions on their analysis of Denard, I am thinking we might hear, "He will get hurt if he runs 29 times a game" and for an encore C-Mart predicts that the Big Ten will adopt a championship game now that they have 12 teams in 2 divisions.
We all debated whether UConn was a good choice for the first game in the new Big House. Many of us expressed disappointment. Now how do you feel about it in hindsight? My take - good choice.
As per ESPN/SI - ND's backup center Dan Wenger has suffered another concussion and will likely not play against Michigan. He was supposed to be the starter as per Irish's breakdown of ND Offense here on MGoBlog - but he was passed over because of the first concussion in practice. The second concussion essentially eliminates him from considertation against Michiagan.
Obviously, hope Wenger recovers and there are no long term ill effects. Though you do have to think that in an already inexpeciened O-line, missing a fifth year senior is not very good for ND.
Thoughts on how this will affect the game?
Didn't get a chance to see any of Purdue Notre Dame. Just wondering what people thought of the new Irish, Crist as a QB, etc. I'm too impatient to wait for Brian's scouting report.
The game summary only says so much.
