My first reaction to flipping on to the Big Ten Network was why?!?!
Then, I decided to watch it for historical purposes because I am that desperate for football to start.
I think you meant 2010. Or the game that had nearly 2008 total yards in it.
I was going to say..if I remember correctly, 2008 was hardly memorable. Would not warrant a Big Ten's Greatest.
The week after the 27-25 comeback win vs Wiscy, we got out to a 14-3 lead at home vs the Illini.
Believe it or not, we played a ~3 1/2 quarter stretch that year vs Wiscy & Illinois and dominated them 41 - 9. For that narrow window of success in 2008, I was really jacked.
Did I mention that we sucked after that?
Otherwise, it is pretty much a dong punch for us.
A couple weeks after this game, I went to Ford Field and watched Western Michigan beat this Illinois team. The Broncos held them to 17 points. Juice put together 2 decent drives all day but that was about it. Crappy 5-7 Illinois team that pounded us. Just terrible. But not as bad as the 9 loss Illini team that beat us 38-13 the following season.
Maybe I should actually put on the channel before commenting. It is the 2008 game, the one where we got killed and Juice ran all over out pitiful defense. Maybe its some Illinois special or soemthing.
=not memorable because I repressed those memories I guess
It is, Big Ten network is running programming geared towards on Big Ten team every day this week into next. Michigan was Monday, don't know who was Tuesday, Illinois is today.
I don't even remember playing against Illinois that year, then again I've blocked almost every memory from that year
To cheer up this post according to Helmholdt over at TheWolverine it seems that Kyle Kalis and his parents are coming back up to Ann Arbor for another visit.
This makes me happy. Thanks Denarded
I mean, that game could foreshadow how we would get our own mobile quarterback that's better than 2008 Juice Williams. Other than that, nothing I care to remember. Early leads did not count for much that season.
Then my penis hurt too much so I switched it off.
