Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Afternoon Games Open Thread
I think Iowa should start asking for their money back, because Ferentz definitely isn't earning it.
but they have our number. I can't believe Michigan hasn't beaten these chumps in recent years.
It's wasn't that they had M's number
Ugh...can tonight come any faster? It's like all the good games come on tonight.
Yea, this is an awful slate of games. Only the big tens suckitude has kept it mildly entertaining
On a business trip in Belmont, NC spending the day working in the hotel room. Was hoping to be distracted by some good football, but it doesn't seem like that will happen until tonight.
Tom Gholston not starting today due to missing too much practice this week. Way to live up to that hype.
But he's expected to still play. I don't get how this is a punishment at all. Okay, you can't be there for the first play, but you can play the whole rest of the game. So what?
The first play against EASTERN.
BTW, did anybody see the graphic earlier that showed to countdown to kickoff between msu and Western?
"'Pun-ish-ment?' Are you speaking English right now? I don't know what that word means."
Or, if you'd like,
Five Dollar footlong?
Head still spinning. Did the B1G just lose to another MAC school?
Come on Eagles, let's make it two!
Soon it will be "Did the B1G just beat a MAC school?!"
Try not to lose by 60.
Commentator in the Penn State/Temple game just stated, of Matt McGloin:
"he's the type of player you'll see fighting for an NFL roster spot next August".
Srsly. WTF with television these days.
Staee has the oldest band in the B1G, but it doesn't mean their footwork isn't atrocious.
I can't figure out why there'd be much difference among college bands in the average age of the performers.
Did a bunch of State's kids get held back a couple of years in school or something?
Did the guy I the booth really just say "speaking of pretty good, lets talk about Andrew Maxwell." Never thought anybody would utter those words after last week.
I can't stand the BTN announcers. They're determined to make every single team sound like a MNC team.
"The wide receivers are predicting a very different game is week!" Well no freaking duh, it's EMU! Come on!
Rebecca Haarlow may have unintentionally set her make-up gun to "whore" when she got dressed.
I haven't seen her but this is hilarious.
Ga Tech returner just safetied himself on a kickoff!!!
After stopping the Ginger one and Penn State:
"This Temple defense is better than anyone in the country thinks".
I am a Temple Owl all day and the above statement re: defense is beyond ridiculous.
Based on the BTN pre-game highlights, I am forced to conclude the MSU-Notre Dame game never happened.
I love Eastern's Jerseys. Nicest combination of green and white in the nation.
Funny, I was just going to comment on how bad I think they look. Kinda like the car of that punk kid down the street that has various pieces permanently in primer.
Well, I guess the jersey does look nice. Its just the rest of the uni that looks gross.
They look great
Oregon State forced a 3 and out vs UCLA and is moving the ball well right now. I have some friends who go to UCLA, so lets go OSU!!
Surprising how empty the Rose Bowl is with ucla ranked and off to a good start this year.
Too bad the team blows.
Be cool man.
...telling the truth =/= being cool.
I'm switching between espn and btn and I've never realized how much better the picture quality is on espn.
This is especially obvious in streams
...those Missouri helmets made me just throw up a little in my mouth.
But they are in the SEC.
That trumps all.
(insert Jerel Worthy joke)
Please tell me these are pro combat (or whatever their supplier calls it). These are right up there with the nd clover in the top five ugliest helmets I've seen.
Ps way worse than anything Michigan has done with their unis
I would like to point out that the last time time CMU ripped the heart out of a B1G team with an onside kick, field goal and some help with late penalties that later that day M, Tate and Matthews did something special in beating the Irish. Just sayin.
...that's means we will lose to Sparty in OT.
No, we'll lose to Iowa in OT
You're right. My bad
Apparently you need a hotter insecure girlfriend to fine tune your selective memory.
Maxwell is like an old man out there. He hobbled to the sideline after that last tackle.
Eastern needs to remember not to put the "E" squarely on the primer on the helmet next time.
It's sad seeing the Rose Bowl so empty. Must be at half capacity today.
I see a lot of empty seats in Happy Valley too.
What the hell was that noise in Lansing???
It sounded like Dantonio was crying.
