and... i like them? I think I like them.
Touche salesman. My head isn't completely in the game right now.
It's 21-10. But Sparty is driving.
..... you'll hear the sound of Dantonio's agent faxing out his resume to every 0-2 division I program in the country....
That's bad if Burkland is seriously hurt. He's a proising right tackle and already decent enough.
Yeah it does not look good either. Hope the kid is ok.
It doesn't look to good, having to get carted off. God, I hate seeing serious injuries to kids. At least he has plenty of eligability left.
yikes, looks like Sparty loses their RT. wish him the best
MSU has their starting RT down and it looks pretty bad (ankle?). MSU can't have injuries there.
Looked like a couple players rolled into the back of his knee. Dont want to speculate but maybe ACL?
When he was carted off, he had his shoe off and his leg wasn't stabilized. I'm pretty sure it's his ankle. Hope he's okay.
#51, looks quite small
a hyperextension perhaps? Wish him well soon whatever it is.
Drink everytime they note that Cousins is a 5 year senior.
"Gary Gray deflects it incomplete"
Finish your liquor cabinet.
You gotta know Dantonio is thinking about it.
What a stupid call. You need the 3 anyway. Might as well kick it, take the points, and take the ball after halftime.
What is Sparty doing?? Everyone saw that coming.
The entire ND coaching staff should have been fired at halftime.
Dumtonio strikes again.
Awful play call by Dantanio. After last year of course they're looking fake. And with you getting the ball to start the 2nd half, take the three points to make it a one score game.
When even my wife is saying "hey, that was a dumb call. Why didn't MSU just kick it", you know you are in trouble. The MSU magic may just have run out for them after last year's magical run.
If you want to skip highlights, Minnesota-Miami is about to start the 3rd quarter. Man, Kill is one red dude.
Also, Army driving on Northwestern on CBSSN. Although, crowd is at least 40% NU fans.
The ball fell off the tee. Miami's (NTM) kicker kicked it anyway, and the refs blew it dead. I know they'll blow it dead if the kicker stops, but if he kicks it? I've never seen that before and wouldn't have guessed they'd kill the play.
I understand this isn't the most legimitmate thing in the world, but Steele thought Western, Toledo and Northern Illinois were the 3 best teams in the MAC. Wisky is up 35-7 against Northern early in the 3rd. That would compare favorably to Michigan's game against WMU and of course OSU's game against Toledo.
I am glad we dont have Wisconsin on the schedule this year. Russell Wilson has taken that offense to another level.
Is the jerel worthy hype dead yet?
Hopefully. That kind of came out of left field. Some thought he was a top 5 pick!
Didn't understand the hype on Worthy. Showed no motor, didn't show any burst or quickness. Bad hand usages.
This is hilarious. 28-10 ND.
To be fair, this is what Michigan would have gone through last week if ND wasn't so, uh, generous.
Wisconsin could be on our schedule. What about the Big Ten Championship game? Gotta believe.
Dantonio's trick plays aren't working that well today, eh?
Another Dantonio fail. He runs the wildcat, goes for nothing. Two plays later, he runs it again, loses 11 yards.
I recommend people follow along with this thread. Already 85 pages in, but worth the shits and giggles.
That is what the LiveBlogs look like when Michigan isn't manhandling the team they're playing. After the second drive, people were calling for Gardner to get in.
I give the mods so much credit when it comes to sifting through a typical liveblog. I saw people calling for Gardner as well, and it just seemed insane. Teams go up and down during a game, and sometimes you get pulled in to a per-play mindset.
ND is playing pissed off today. Everyone knew it would be that or please fire our coach now (again)
I didn't know who would win, but I definitely thought MSU would keep it close. If Notre Dame won, I thought it would be by a field goal.
I honestly thought they would be defeated. MSU just doesn't look that great outside of Cousins. Hell, ND is still behind in the TO margin. Why hasn't MSU figured out that Gary Gray still plays?
ND still has to play the 4th quarter...
MSU is averaging 1.1 yards per rush so far. Their Oline is very suspect.
Stay tuned. Kelly tends to get conservative when leading.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
The big difference is that MSU has nobody like Denard who can just take over the game. For as good as Cousins is as a pocket passer, he needs a good line to protect him. MSU's looks to be average at best, and so Cousins is going to be harassed all game.
Also, UM got really lucky last week that ND didn't find a way to convert a couple of their chances. They are playing much better this week, and it shows.
62 Yard TD pass for N'Western: They just tied Army at 14.
Why does ND shut down their offense as soon as the 4th quarter starts?
