Yes, I know most of you don't want to see this defensive performance, but it's fun seeing Michigan's offense in this game. Roundtree set single game recieving yards record.
in re: is GRIII on a tear
Sorry, that's one game I'm tired of watching.
But talk about a game that symbolizes RR's tenure...I think this is one of the most embarrassing games I remember...from the lack of defense, the final score, and how we paraded around like we just won the Rose Bowl even though it was only a won against Zook and Illinois and a bowl eligible one....
Will this ever stop?
That game may have taken a few years off my life, but I love that game.
Maybe it's because I was at the 2000 Northwestern game and find it soothing to finally see us get the long end of the stick in a once-per-decade shootout.
of all time after Toledo and App State. Makes me ill to watch Gerg Defenses
Eh, we won. I'll watch any game we won and enjoy it. I don't see many people complaining about the Sugar Bowl or watching replays of that even though the team looked just as bad in that game (although that was a much better apponent).
Your post is ironic
Sugar Bowl was a great defensive game. Both offenses were strangled by the other team's defense (perhaps Michigan more so that VT). Vtech ultimately lost because Beamer's special teams failed. But it wasn't necessarily a bad game.
true in certain aspects. we could not stop va tech to save our own lives (remember all those 3rd and long, and the couple 4th down conversions?) except in the red zone, where we just completely stuffed them. Va Tech played a great all-around defensive game. like you said, they just made bonehead special teams errors that cost them the game. Michigan played great defense when it needed to, and was emblematic of the bend don't break philosophy.
Remember when our defense really really sucked?
Gerg's best defensive game under his tenure at U of M.
I was on my honeymoon in Bora Bora for this game. I bought stupidly expensive internet access from the Hilton just to watch the ESPN GameCast slowly change numbers. My wife was okay with this. The marriage is still going well, thank you for asking.
And I wanted to forget that game when I was leaving the stadium. Most disgusting defensive display I ever saw in person.
Wow, this has never been on BTN before!
Surprised no one has mentioned Tate's performance. That game gave us the last glimpse of Tate's immense talent which sadly went to waste.
Please, make it stop.
While the defensive performance was awful, that last play gives me chills every time I watch it. I was just so happy to be bowl eligible and it's awesome to see the sideline go crazy once Scheelhaase gets tackled.
Just Michigan men playing their hearts out
But I'm probably being bias, because my brother was on a unofficial recruiting visit that day...
