Do you have any of the footage of Desmond's number being honored? I was extremely disappointed to not see it on ESPN.
Video Of All Varieties: That Happened
[Ed: You know, I was going through my VOAV stuff today and ran across this from Boyz in the Pahokee, which is everything I was going to post, so here's the bump. Still looking for Denard's post-game Sportscenter interview.]
Al Lesar's lede from his column in this morning's South Bend Tribune:
ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Retro jerseys obviously didn’t fit well. Collars were too tight.
Watch the first video. It's at the very beginning.
I did I meant I thought there would be more footage than that. Guess I should have just gone to the game.
And thanks for posting these.
Here's a bit more from MGoBlue:
ESPN really dropped the ball with that. Their big primetime game was starting and they didn't bother to bump the silly SEC matchup over to another channel? The alumni bar I was at in DC had to resort to putting the ESPN3 stream on, with no sound for a bit, until that damn game ended. I hate the SEC!!!
but there's a good interview with him on mgoblue.com http://www.mgoblue.com/allaccess/ he talks about his first meeting with denard.
...because I still cant believe what I saw. Go Blue
BTW thanks for putting this great thread together
So if I understand the Desmond tribute correctly, that patch will always be on the #21 jersey?
If you look closely, Junior Hemingway's (/Desmond Howard's) jersey has the "Michigan Football Legend" patch on the right breast.
Did anyone see if the other #21 had the patch too? I assume there wouldn't be pictures. Maybe the 360.
Will there ever be more than one patch on a jersey?
I like the idea of the honoring the legends with patches on the jerseys, however I think the execution of the patch itself leaves more to be desired. It just looks like a guady iron on thing.
I would have liked to see something a little smaller and maybe Desmond's signature embroidered on it instead of the printed lettering.
The concept of the patches is very cool, but the patch itself should be a little smaller.
Want to know one of my favorite parts of the game?
SEEING LLOYD BRADY ON THE BIGSCREEN! I laughed my ass off and scream "Lloyd Brady!" with my friend, and everyone looked at us like we were crazy.
same here, people around me were going "Llyod"?? "Brady"?? "Whatchoo talkin bout, man?"
Thanks a lot for the videos. I was there and still can't believe it. Down 24-7 with 2 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. Wowza.
We just took the top three spots on ESPN Top Plays. Also, I love Frank Beckmann.
Does anybody have the radio broadcast of the game? I'd love to remix the highlight video with that audio.
oh yes thank you, can't watch those highlights enough
Ive watched Will Campbell on this play over and over again. I feel like he's arrived, absolutely blows his man off the ball and sets up the whole play
Could you imagine this on every play?
You're right, that looked like HS for him
WOW. Please let this be a sign he is starting to "get it." It's pretty apparent that he needs time in real games to get better and Mattison had him in there a lot in the 2nd half.
I like the highlights with the radio guys. I hope there's a torrent with their audio.
I doubt that's going to happen this week. If Pam Ward ever does another Michigan game, it might.
I did that last year for the IU highlight reel (I tried to grab the radio audio for last nights game but was waylaid by technical difficulties), and I will do whatever it takes to do it again whenever we're cursed with her presence in future.
I didn't see the late 3rd quarter pass to Hemmingway. How did Denard complete that pass?
Im sure the recruits were jumping around excited as all can be.... Does anyone have pictures of them getting into the game like the guy from last week ( his name slips my mind ) but im sure this game was a great in recruiting ...
Also does anyone have video of the celebration after the game with the crowd, the band playing and players jumping into the stands ?
Denard said he called for it. Roundtree never mentions it when twice asked about the huddle.
And now he uses "This is Michigan" as a verbal pause.
Good highlights. enjoy the overlap with the radio call.
Im proud of our DEFENSE we gave up a ton of yards but we forced TO's and came up HUGE when we needed it... We would have definitely lost this game if the D didnt come up big
Thanks for posting this Boyz n da Pahokee, i went to mgovideo first and watched them all! Great stuff as per usual. Great performance by the team! Even if they didn't come back with the final 30 seconds, they fought so hard. Being able to score four fourth quarter td's was special. So happy for Vince Smith breaking those tackles! My buddy broke my ceiling fan as we were jumping and screaming for him to score.
Anyone have the video of the Denard postgame interview with Fowler?
Anyone know what was going on with Hoke and Devin Gardner after one of the TD's (I think it was the Gallon TD)? It looked like Hoke was chewing Gardner out for some reason. Odd.
I could not tell if it was Hawthorne or Gardner, but I imagine Hoke was trying to keep players off the field and avoid any celebration penalties with :02 on the clock still.
and it was definitely Gardner. Given the timing when watching it, it definitely seemed as though he probably was trying to go celebrate with his team mates on the feild and got a good chewing out for it. Good thing too given the USC incident.
Has anyone seen the 101st Parachute Demo Team's video online? It looked really cool when they showed it on the scoreboards, would like to see it again.
If the defense can get some take aways and tackle well that should suffice until the defense learns to cover.
I really feel that this defense is going to really come along as the season progresses. We are starting to see some flashes from young guys such as BWC and Hawthorne. Kovacs is playing out of this world and JT Floyd looks improved from last year even if Floyd did own him. The defense still needs to gel and fully understand Mattison's playbook.
does anyone have Denard's postgame interview with ESPN. When he came back to the field? My recording didn't go long enough to catch it on SC.
Boys n da Pahokee mentioend this in reply to a comment a few above yours, but you might've missed it.... it's included in the torrent.
A question for those in attendance last night. Was the the most alive you've ever seen the Big House?
This is my 17th season as a season ticket holder, and with the possible exception of the '97 victory over Ohio State I have never seen the crowd into a game as last night.
What an event, it lived up to every bit of the hype!
