michigan stadium got rick roll'd!
Nobody was more estatic than me when this happened. But right now it just depresses me as a Dolphins fan. Throw the ball downfield damnit!!! I'm getting flashbacks from Sunday when he dumped it off to Lousaka Polite on 3rd and 8 for 1 yard on our last drive.
But really the last throw had to be one of the greatest in Michigan history. I mean he threads the needle over 2 PSU defenders and put in the perfect spot to avoid the defender on Manningham's backside. It's throws like these that help me feel confident that Henne is going to be a good quarterback. I still think he checks down too often and too fast to do so.
He was only a true sophomore here but I totally agree. Watching the whole drive really reminded me how unlikely the final outcome was.
Wow, that's a great point. Beyond the Breaston return, the 2 secs getting added back, and the final play, I had blocked out the rest of that drive. I must have been just short of a homicidal rage as Henne continually checked down, with only the very last throw going into the end zone when you need a TD to win the game.
Did anyone ever ask Breaston to see if he dropped that one pass in the flat on purpose? It would have gone for about 2 yards if he caught it and even more time would have come off the clock.
A great outcome and a great final throw, but man, that drive was a bit dodgy.
I have got to say, even though I don't despise Penn State like I do certain other teams, I always enjoy beating them. What a great game.
i don't know why. maybe it's JoPa. just looking at JoPa reminds me of being a kid ... looking at JoPa.
According to the broadcasters, Michigan's player of the game was a linebacker. Obviously this was decided before the game was decided, but still, it's been a while.
I think that's David Brandon at the 10:45 mark
I was surprised no one else had picked up on that yet. I didn't figure I was the first to notice.
Henne (dolphins), Avant (eagles), Breaston (cardinals), Manningham (giants), Hart (colts).
GO BLUE CRUSH PSU !!!!
He was a true freshman and redshirting then. Tate was in 9th grade at the time.
This was my freshman year when I was overly invested, emotionally, in the scoreboard at the end. I was one of the last people to leave Michigan stadium that night. No game remains more vivid for me than that one.
that is the best game I've ever attended in my four years at Michigan. The crowd was absolutely insane. Good memories
Only said Tremendous once and was referring to Penn State. I have to say I'm a little disappointed with his interview efforts after the game.
this is like watching Michigan porn. I love it.
how we love this game so much (me included) even though it was a highlight in an otherwise poor (relative to our then-standards) expectations. Just goes to show -- an exciting finish is memorable regardless of the season (I feel the same way about last year's ND game).
For all the bitching PSU does about calls that were actually correct, I'm surprised we don't hear more about Avant's heel landing OOB.
They have bitched about that one, too. But it was a correct call. His toes landed in first.
I have gotten a chance to watch the drive. I was on my honeymoon in Hawaii and didn't get a chance to watch the game, only highlights, and only heard about the 2 seconds and saw the highlight of the final play. From this video, the 2 seconds added doesn't look like it was Lloyd complaining non stop for them like the Penn State fans have said. It looks like the play ended, we called timeout right away, the clock ran past the timeout, and they reset the clock to the right time. Classic finish. Hopefully it won't be this close this year (meaning we roll) and we get an epic finish like this against TP and TUOS.
I cut out about a minute and a half of Lloyd complaining about the clock running after the timeout.
Amazing to think that UM went into that game 3-3 and 1-2 in the Big 10. The next year they were 11-0 going into the final game of the season.
Gave me goosebumps. I was 8 rows up in the endzone where Manningham caught the TD. One of the best days I've ever had.
I was in the north endzone, so I couldn't really tell what happened on the last play. I just heard the stadium explode. Awesome.
if the PSU safety does his job and steps back just 3 steps, henne's only option was probably Avant. That would have been a thread the needle throw.
good times, good times.
