2011 Michigan - ND will be on BTN at 10:PM Eastern Tonight
If you can predict when the fourth quarter starts. I still can't watch the first three quarters, even though I know how it ends.
I have to be in Ann Arbor this weekend, so I think I will stop by the press box and make sure that Don Criqui is fed and has adequate water. After all, he might still be waiting for some dort of signal and - ND homer or not - I think we should do the humane thing.
Was hoping this would be on this week.
It's been 3 years already?? So many emotions watching this game back then
I was at the game. Sitting in front of some miserable little shit who screamed his head off every time ND did something right. His Dad evidently hadn't taught him how to be gracious winner and just ignored his son being a little dick.
It brought me some joy watching them nearly run out of the stadium after the last touchdown, the little boy crying away.

I imagine that Notre Dame CB Gary Gray must hit the bottle pretty hard every time this game airs or is mentioned. The TDs passes to Hemingway, Gallon, and Roundtree were all completed while he was covering the receiver 1-on-1 in man coverage.
funny article from that year, a couple weeks before the game:
I still have this game on my DVR. Every time I think I should delete it to free up space, I watch the last 2 minutes and think, "nah... not just yet."
Rewatching this game is worthy of another live blog...
Denard scores on the drawn up fumble-at-the-goal line play
OT for a moment (especially for anyone who switched away from the Tigers-Indians game)---Detroit just took the lead in the top of the 9th 4-2 on a 1-out 3-run blast by JD Martinez, scoring Torii (lead off with a BB) and Miggy (single).
Tigers are still batting, 2 down now...
4-2 final score, Nathan getting the save, this time only slightly worrisome, as he gave up a 2-out single and then got the potential tying run to instead hit an easy fly-ball final out.
Now I can switch channels to the 2011 game.
[edit: it appears Stephen Moya pinch-ran for Miggy after Miggy singled Hunter to 2nd----just watched the replay of the game-winning HR, a huge blast that easily cleared the right-center wall.]
turn a pretty purple pretty soon?
This never gets old.
Tommy Boy just whooped!
Best game ever.
your UTL jersey to watch this tonight, WD?
Best game in the student section during my time at Michigan!
And Rees just fumbled. Even knowing what's gonna happen (and maybe because of it), watching this game is ridiculously entertaining!
Thanks for posting, or I would have missed it.
Oh how Denard loved throwing into double coverage
Face Palm Guy!!!
Throw into double coverage. Complete. Throw into single converage. Interception.
That Ryan tackle was huge. A key forgotten play that made the difference.
Only two minutes left and there's three touchdowns we haven't even seen yet.
One of the most incredible games ever.
That did not look like an actual 1st down.
Makes up for the phantom "index card" 1st down ND got at their place.
So much excitment when this score happened. No way ND scores on us. Now we all sleep happily
while ND drives for a last-minute lead TD, Jeremy Gallon goes unnoticed on the Michigan sidelines as he prepares his cloaking device.
It's over. 30 seconds left. It's over.
"WIDE OPEN'S GALLON! THEY LEFT HIM ALOOONE!!"
one of the very best moments in my long history of watching Michigan football.
DENARD WITH HIS BEST AARON RODGERS IMPRESSION WITH THE BACK SHOULDER THROW!
Brady going for the score here is when I decided "I'm alright with this guy as my head coach". Announcers all calling for him to just center the ball for the field goal, but Brady's like, "Nope, This is Michigan, FerGodSakes!"
I don't want to leave.
Still here, listening to Dynamite.
suspended in time.
In the meantime, though, a couple lasting images:
---the crew chief and the white cap he wore (the only truly "throwback" article I saw being worn that night on the field at The Big House.
---The bearded long-haired blond man who rushed out to congratulate the Michigan team in the end zone after time expired---wasn't that Steve Hutchinson?
Yes that was Hutchinson.
I must admit I will miss Musburger. I can't see Fowler making those calls that much more exciting.
'Out of bounds with eight seconds to goooo.'
When Brent Musberger calls Michigan/Notre Dame, we are 7-1.
Which game was the one loss?
That was my bachelor party. Couldn't have picked a better one. I'll never forget it. Absolutely electric that night.

Since I've moved away from Michigan that's one of the games I'm more than happy that I flew in to see.
Ann Arbor was alive that night, that's for sure.
Unfortunately I left my phone on and the battery was dead by halftime. I would have really liked to have a grainy cell phone victory video.
