fair point that
Folks, isn't it just TIME for another iconic Michigan moment in The Game? It's been a long time since Howard, Biakabutuka and Woodson. Since then, it's been painful moments and memories - Gonzalez getting loose, Crable hit, failed 2 point conversion - and generally getting our asses kicked. A punt return for a TD for Peppers would fit the script and follow precedent most perfectly. But I'd be happy with other possibilities as well. A key TD catch for Chesson? A big interception for Lewis?
I'm so jacked up I can't sleep. I'm surfing a constant triangle between this site, MLive and the Detroit News for any new tidbit of information. When I read about Jimmy joining the Grave Walk last night, I was ready to run through a wall.
Happy Thanksgiving, GO BLUE, see you Saturday!

Saturday we UNLEASH our shiny new Harbaugh!
Yesterday marked the 30th anniversary of the Harbaugh to Kolesar TD bomb that clinched the game against OSU. One of the biggest moments in the history of the big house.
Two sections taken from the Toledo Blade 11/24/85:
The kickoff goes into the end zone and Gerald White runs three yards on the first play. On the next play, Harbaugh notices safety Sonny Gordon is moving in to blitz. It means the Buckeyes will be in one-on-one coverage.
"It was a delayed blitz," Harbaugh said. "It gave me just enough time to throw it. Either the tight end or the wide out would be open."
The wide receiver was open. John Kolesar caught the ball around Ohio's 40 and outran William White into the end zone.
"We didn't know the guy was that fast," Pepper Johnson, Ohio State linebacker, said.
"I messed up," William White said.
"I'm sure they watched me on film and thought I would run that post pattern across the face of the defender (William White) on the play," Kolesar said. "I just dipped in and went over the top (ran around behind White)."
Getting open was the easy part. Getting the ball in hand was the hard part.
Kolesar said the contact lense in his right eye rolled up on the top of his eye, blurring his vision, and then he lost the ball in the lights.
"I lost track of the ball for about two or three seconds," he said. "I have to credit my eighth grade coach for the catch. He used to make us lay on our backs, throw the ball up, and then close our eyes and catch it by sort of feeling it into our hands."
See video of the play and Bo's thoughts in the first reply:
Some interesting things going down in 247's crystal ballz today, all related to the DL.
- DT Jordan Elliott - who Steve Lorenz indicated is one of the top 3 guys UM wants for the DL class - had both Ace and Lorenz crystall ball to UM today. He will be on campus this weekend. Buzz building on him.
- DT Chris Daniels - who is also a UM target - suddenly has a OU crystal ball to Oklahoma from Lorenz.
- DT/DE Mr. Gary - who visited Ole Mi$$ this weekend just got a crystal ball projection from David Johnson to UM. Who is David Johnson? 247's Ole Mi$$ writer.
Tea leaves - Gary "It's happening... even Ole Mi$$ money won't sway you to the SEC...". Chris Daniels - we only have room for so many DT spots and Jordan Elliott is headed our way. Thank you for your interest.
As the infamous 'Sheed Wallace said "(crystall) Ballz don't lie". Esp if they are Ace, Lorenz, and Wiltfong ballz.
