AND KEVIN fucking GRADY doesn't get a touch????
1st and goal from the 1....
This team looks to have packed it in for the day. No heart whatsoever. This is a disgrace.
THIS DEFENSE HAD BETTER LEARN TO TACKLE. BRANDON GRAHAM IS THE ONLY DAMN GUY OUT THERE WHO KNOW WHAT HIS JOB IS. EITHER THE DEF.COORDINATOR OR THE PLAYERS NEED TO BE REPLACED. NEITH HAS A CLUE WHAT THEIR JOB IS. THERE ARE 4 PLAYERS ON THE WHOLE TEAM WHO HAVE BRAINS AND A CLUE. THE REST ARE DRAGGING THEM DOWN THIS LATE IN THE SEASON. RICH ROD HAS GOT TO GO. HIS ARROGANCE AND LACK OF AILITY TO LEAD THROUGH HIS STAFF ARE GLARING ON THE FIELD EVERY WEEK.
You don't put Minor in until fourth down?
There was a -14 pt swing.
The fact that it turned into a 14-point swing is just unbelievable. Okay, we didn't get the TD . . . but you let the Big Ten's worst offense go 99 yards then?
un fucking believable
We had a push up the middle every play, why stretch it out at all!?
why not just do a roll out pass????? everyone in the stadium and who was watching the game on tv knew they were going to run it! They're too fricken predictable
I am officially off the rich-rod bandwagon.
A stretch on 3rd down? And using your smallest running back 3 times?
Why not put in denard?
The guy is just an idiot
am getting there. If we don't win today, against a 1 win team, I doubt we make a bowl game.
I've supported the hell out of this guy since he was hired, even have an autographed 8 x 10 of him hanging in my living room. I can't believe the stupid ass shit this guy calls week after week. What in the world is he thinking???
same here. i've supported him through everything, but the last few weeks his playcalling has been absolute shit and he doesn't get his team motivated at all. If we don't get 6 frickin wins he has to go. And that is not being unreasonable.
Not with this talent, young or not. It doesn't take a lot of experience to stand there and catch a punt. When it happens this frequently, all the mistakes, it's on the coaches. Problem is, who could we find that would be willing to come to UM that's any good, coaching wise?
Spelled F U C K
Horrible play calling on this series of downs. I knew Michigan would find a way to blow this game in the second half. Now, another 3 and out. Great.
I was also going to mention, Michigan should have kicked a field goal on forth down. Playing on the road, you need to take whatever points you can get. Especially since Michigan has played awful on the road so far under RR.
RR is proving the haters right......slowly but surely.
I don't think I've ever quite seen a team quit like these guys the past few weeks. Notice how Northwestern is taking it to Penn State right now, also...
They only showed one replay and I don't have Tivo, but was Brown's knee/elbow/anything down on 3rd down? looked like he dove in before he was down?
Minor should have had every touch.
can't wait til we get a new AD - a Michigan man - who fires Rich Rod and his whole staff.
Typically, a team improves with the more experience it gains. We have gotten worse in an unbelievable way. Illinois is 1-6 and had not beaten an FBS team this year? THIS IS NOT COOL, SHIT LIKE THIS DOES NOT FLY AT MICHIGAN!!!!
was nearing it's peak, I repeatedly hear Mossman.
what might have otherwise been comical was aggravating today
CAPS LOCK BACK FUCKING ON. GREAT FRICKEN PUNT. JESUS H CHRIST I CAN'T FUCKING BELIEVE THIS DISASTER
My blood pressure is though the fucking roof.
Feel free to commit anytime. Your coverage skills and athleticism would be greatly appreciated.
Anyone watching this game
For the first time in a long time, I'm turning the game off early. This man has disgraced this program; all the negative press, the poor play calling, players that quit and give up. I've had enough of this.
What a way to inspire Ill. 2 scores down. The life is
sucked out of the D.
Terrible at recognizing a play and too weak to make a tackle, how was he rated anything higher than a 5.5!?
Minor should have been in since the first goal line snap.
Or a QB sneak would have been nice. Not, you know, 4 straight HB dives.
Rich Rod seems too stubborn sometimes to do what might be the most logical.
Thank you. He wants to do it a certain way and is always late in realizing what should be done. If we planned on running it everytime, why not line up in a heavy package with no WR's instead of that crap.
goddammmmfucciiiiinnnngg decision to not give Minor or Grady a touch before 4th down should be removed from all play dalling responsibilities ever again from 1st and goal. Oh. My. God. How?
And, why do we fumble so much. This is truly unacceptable two games in a row.
I hate to see this, I had such a high for him for the first few weeks, he is getting exposed.........
But I disagree.
I think he's done fine this game.
Right when I clicked "Submit" he fumbled again.
He's not doing well now but this can't be placed on him.
The past is in the past. Hopefully the team isn't reacting like we are and are instead trying to just win this game.
Sadly, I think in a few years he'll be an afterthought while Denard and Devin (Double D's, hehe) will be the guys in the spotlight. Assuming that Rich Rod is still here and fields any kind of relevant team.
we are a horrible team and that is hard to swallow.
Ball game. Beating Florida seems like it happened ages ago.
I've been all in for Richrod until this game. I still might be, but if the new AD is not, who could come in. Would you go for Miles? Brian Kelly?
I like Kelly, call me crazy but I just haven't been too crazy with Les, that NC he got in '07 was basically by default since everyone else lost. On the bright side, he has shown he can beat the hell out of OSU. Anyone is better than RRod at this point though. If we can't get Kelly or Miles, I'm sure someone with down's syndrome could be an improvement.
Getting routed by a 1-6 team. We don't deserve a Bowl
if we can't beat this team.
Oh jolly, this is such a wonderful feel good story, he walks on and makes the team!
He's a walk on because he misses basic tackles and is too slow for the position. Good teams don't play walk ons!!!!
So many people to be mad at, ahhhhh I'm breaking out the liquor!!!!!!!!!!
I Hate Football. UGH.
Well there goes what would have been a perfectly great Halloween party...all the neighborhood hotties dressed up as their alter egos, and me bummed from this damned game.
This game has got to be one of the biggest jokes i've seen in a while.
superbly done-- Very Timely. And from what amounts to-- a Long Time Ago.
You can get a sense of The Creeping R2 Revisionism that has been on this board for Quite Some Time Now, when juxtaposed with the above FYI R2 Stuff. And Revisionsim can be a Very Tough Thing, one way or another.
All that being said-- for Hoke, I think it is clear that THIS has to be settled On The Field for these next 2-games.
I dont remember what year The Above @-Ill game was, but I remember it. R2 had his chance to Settle It On The Field toward the end of his 3rd-year. And it Ended With the MsS Bowlgame Disaster.
But MsS was With GERG-- R2 needed a new DC. CARR-- didnt give R2 a Group Hug. And . . . And . . .
well, whadyouknow-- The Revisionism starts-up All Over Again
