Boo Hoke going for 1 after scoring to cut the lead to 9?
2006: Michigan 34 Ball State 26 - YouTube
Disagree. You always put yourself within a score before going for 2.
The last game Bo saw in person and the last time he was in Michigan Stadium for a game. He died two weeks later.
Bo's last game (as noted above); Hoke on the sideline - for Ball State; foreshadowing of "the Horror".
That game was cold as hell and at the time I thought it was quite underwhelming to attend; now I look back at that and think what a fascinating moment in time it was.
Cold as hell? I was at this game and the weather was so good, I took my jacket off in the 2nd quarter. Now the Northwestern game the week before, THAT was cold as hell.
Wasn't this Hart's first 'lost' fumble in so many carries?
Yup, first in 600 according to the broadcast guy
it was a Morgan Trent big play on fourth down that finally put the game out of reach. Yes it was an ugly game for sure, but now I see what this guy named Hoke was about back then also. It may have been fourth and goal also but if not they were within 25 yards of scoring and going for two and getting a tie none the less.
Hoke + fleece = a few degrees above absolute zero.
watching this game with my step brother and we were talking about how impressed we were with Brady Hoke,and his game plan . In hindsight he was probably interviewing for the Michigan job.
Was Carr being nice in the second half and putting in secondaries? Because I don't quite see how else Ball State was basically a TD+2pt away from tieing the game after being down by that much.
