+1 Post midnight means it's a new day.
It's not UTL but this is the best situation. They have no excuse right now when they will be a primetime* game. I think they come out and win big and look like the team we saw the first two weeks.
*According to ESPN
The players seem to be more focused when the game is at night instead of noon if you know what I mean.
Why be sarcastic about it? At this point, we have no reason to believe that's not the case.
Hey, I was like that too in college.
As a young man your instinct to mate causes your hunting drive to be more active as day turns to night, making you more focused and energetic.
I just made that up. I have no idea what I'm talking about.
Don't let facts get in the way of a good theory.
Good, based on today, I might need more time to build up a buzz.
I suggest Bloody Mary's. The tomato juice and celery provide food so you don't have to stop for meals.
but i hear all the cool kids use pickles instead.
Gameday will be in Fargo, North Dakota and the primetime ABC game is 3-0 Michigan at 0-2 uconn.
That just says it all about next week in college football.
Crush them and get to the bye week. And when I mean crush, I wanna see them just blow uconn off the field. From what I hear, there should be a lot of Michigan people there. Michigan has a lot to prove next week.
so that's two... also my niece and her boyfriend, so now that's four - we'll make enough noise to sound like eight, although we're not sitting with them, so that reduces the effect
Shark . . . jumped.
first of all, games in fargo north dakota are what college football is all about. do we really need to see birmingham, or baton rouge, or palo alto again? if there isn't a marquee game (and there isn't), why NOT go somewhere off the beaten path?
second, and more specifically, they love their football there. it's a marquee fcs program, and their building totally rocks. check it out: http://youtu.be/nIqTcbDq088
(sorry, don't know how to imbed)
Over / Under on Gardner turnovers?
Extra credit for pick 6's
0 and I'm taking the under.
I demand flawless football.
So does Hoke, yet M has the leader in interceptions thrown...again.... for the second straight year... have fun in Vegas
Oh no the interceptions leader in all of 3 games played this season! In which Michigan won all of them, I might add.
Oh no! M just beat a 38 point underdog by 4. All is well. No, really... all is well... I might add...
Can you not?
You mean the qb leads the team in interceptions? Who'd have imagined?
Well shucks Brodie, I guess it's plum alright to lead the nation in interceptions then. Thanks for the logic son.
Hope we perform well and are awake next week.
Is it going to be a split regional coverage with ESPN? The ESPN game schedule also lists Kansas St.-Texas at 8PM on ABC, and I'll probably get that. Don't see anything on ESPN yet though.
Does it matter? M sucks now. didn't you know?
Love your avatar. Maybe it should be called Mgo-inverted New Mexico missing a tetris piece?
Can you not tell that it's a bomb? I don't know where you are seeing a Tetris piece, that clearly looks just like a bomb. Better shut down the city.
Blue hairs. Blue hairs everywhere.
We aren't as good as we looked last week and we aren't as bad as we looked yesterday.
Where do you live? I live in College Station. I hope I can find the game.
New Mexico. Checking out the DirecTV guide, ABC already lists KSU/Texas, and ESPN is Auburn/LSU. ESPN2 and ESPNU currently have games TBA, but they start at 5PM (7PM Eastern) and other games are already scheduled for 8:15 (10:15 Eastern).
I hope we're not left out in the cold (Yukon pun). I'm coming to New Mexico tomorrow and will be in Santa Fe all week for a conference. Good to know there are fellow Wolverines out there.
I live in Austin and have time Warner. I'm worried the game won't be playing anywhere here with UT playing at the same time. Not familiar with directv. Will a bar that has directv get the game here? And do abc prime time games show on espn3?
Same here. I live in Texas, and would prefer to not watch the damn Longhorns.
there is so much longhorn schadenfreude to be had this year.
Got so sick (when I lived there) of that hook 'em ghey hand signal they are so fond of using...
Would relish at their big baby crocodile tears
Big mistake UConn you have awoken the dragon. We kick butt at night.
Just no Brent and Kirk, please.
we need to do is find the guy on the team with the hottest girlfriend - put her in a tight shirt and make the camera man focus on her. Then ol Musberger will lose his shit again and just talk about her the entire time.
crap... was hoping for a noon game TV coverage wise. If they split ABC, I'm pretty sure we'll get Texas/KSU in Arizona. Fukk it my girlfriend is out of town next weekend, I'll just find a bar if we don't get it here on ABC/ESPN. Might wake up in a strange place but whatever...
take over UConn's stadium and run them out of the building early. OSU must have had 70% or more of the seats, it looked and sounded like a home game for them.
A night game may be better than a noon start, but if the emotion and focus isn't there it could get ugly. I figure we drop to 15 or lower in the polls after today's game.
I think we'll take over that stadium if seast are available. Not quite like OSU can, but a healthy 1/3 of the stadium will probably be maize
70% might be a little generous but the OSU contingent was well represented. I'm sure we will have a good showing for UConn though with so many M grads out east. In fact, here in NYC the alumni association has planned for a massive transport of alums from the city to the game.
This requires a significant restructuring of the day's agenda. Never expected 8PM.
We get a blowout in primetime and today will be forgotten.
Well not completely forgotten. You're not taking into account the thousands of DVR'd copies in Spartan households across the state.
If that's how they want to spend their time they can knock themselves out with it.
Stupid night games. Some people plan shit months in advance thinking there's no way UCONN will be a game at night and then this happens!!!!
Even with the TBA, wasn't there always an assumption that there was a more than likely chance this would be a night game? It's not like this was an out-of-the-blue proposition.
You're probably right but I never expected it. UConn for whatever reason does play a lot of home night games.
