This is maaaaybe premature there, ESPN. Maryland #1 FWIW.
I'm just gonna go ahead and quit sports now. No more watching, playing... not even going to my kids soccer games. Done.
Combined with No Pass Defense!
We need all the time we can get to try to score to come back.
That's right, we need to come back against Akron at the end of the game.
And time continues to run off the clock.
Akron just wants it more. That's all there is to it. We thought we could come in, sleepwalk through this game and curb stomp the shit out of them. If they win, they deserve it.
Plenty of time left, but still. One way or another this has been a disgrace.
Pathetic. Just pathetic. If we lose I will just not care about the rest of the season.
ARGH!!! TD them!
well, thanks for prepping this team to play a football game over the last 6 days Hoke.
To the "which is the worst loss in UM history" discussion.
No doubt, that App State team in 07 was vastly better than Akron. They were back-to-back FCS champs, which would put them well above Akron in a theoretical Sagarin rankings
It's FUCKING AKRON !!!!
OK, Devin. Time to put the September Heisman on the shelf and get to work.
dregs of the MAC in the Big House...
Akron just went 75 yards and then 67 yards on 2 consecutive drives on our "defense". Pathetic, just pathetic.
into this last series. Facing another big M humiliation if they fail.
How the hell are we playing so bad against Akron! Everything has been terrible. Offense, defense and special teams. This is Akron. Not even App State.
If we don't take the lead or tie it on this next possesion it may be game over.
Take your fat ass to Hardees
is lost out there most of the time too...all year.
welp, we can all look forward to a pink background and kittens for 2-3 days again.
This might be the worst coaching job in our history. And that's saying something after the RichRod years. Out coaches by Terry Bowden?????
The most disappointing game since the horror. A loss would ruin whatever hoke has built over the last two years
This will be permanent negative recruiting plan A for every opposing coach. Not to be melodramatic but it is digging an enormous hole for this coaching staff to dig out of. People are getting fired at Texas for less. Our perception returns to where it was during the end of the CArr era and the worst RR days.
and play with some 'ol 98 inspiration!
Boy, Sprarty's gonna have fun with us on Monday morning. FML!
Don't even know what to say
I dont think you can really overemphasize the fact that this is Akron. One of the worst teams in D1
crunch time baby!
We need to eat clock on this drive, I don't trust our D today
Why run out of bounds??
What the hell happened in practice this week?
hopefully we just ran completely vanilla offensive and defensive schemes in this game.
Nice pass interference there.
Just fucking score. A touchdown. Please. Seriously.
Fitz for TD!
I can't believe I'm saying this but we've left Akron too much time.
You are correct sir. Time for the d to step up.
TD, good. Still alot of time left.
Jesus, we need a stop, holy shit.
too much time
no reason to celebrate... Sorry.
Time for the d to step up.
2:49 still left to turn this into a historic upset guys! Don't let history get away from you.
Feels like it will end poorly.
Too much time for the juggernaut offense of the Akron Zips.
My anxiety has not lessened in the slightest.
Can't believe I'm saying this but there's too much time left.
You are correct sir.
Fitz should have taken a knee at the 1 foot line
28-24 Michigan 2:49 4Q
Also no more noon games. Hoke likes em, but that's too bad. Win this game by 50 then tell us when to play lol
Please. That is all
Please stop them.
It won't mean a damn thing if the defense doesn't step and get a stop here so the O can run the clock out. A lot of time still left, but Akron needs a TD as a FG won't cut it.
I really wanted to see Shane Morris, Derrick Green, Taco Charlton, etc. today...
have to be aggressive on D here
Get. A. Stop.
This game is ageing me fast.
Safety help please!
Why is jourdan Lewis still in???? There tearin him up!!
Is so necessary right now
It's STRESSFUL, to be, a Michigan Wolverine.....
Mistake after mistake after mistake free mistake
seems to read our defensive coverage fairly well. I could understand Rees last week, but this does not bode well if a C- quarterback is picking our defensive coverage apart.
Jeez...we give them time to set their protection every time.
on the D today.
FUCK! Another first down for them.
this is not good.
We have to check to a new play as well.
Great call to rush it by Akron. Our d is pathetic
Are we really going to lose this game???????????
Holding on them!
seriously... NO more first downs!!
3 and out?
Get some pressure!!!!
Well, at least they have to get a TD....
100% Worst Thing Ever(R)
I say decline the holding and take the loss of a down instead.
So....I guess the guy that predicted the score to be 42-10 came the closest this week....
it's notable that that was the 1st hold on them on our DL. our DL is so bad, they can't draw holding calls on Akron
i mean, it's one thing to not get much pressure, but at least be athletic enough to give them a tough go of it
A turnover would be nice. Just sayin'.
Please show 7 and rush 4 or 5.
Please show blitz, make them check at the line then back out.
This loss will be on the defense. If we lose. As bad as the offense has been, we've scored 28. If that's not enough for our defense against Akron, then we have issues. And we have issues.
Back in my day, U of M had average looking cheerleaders... Seems the tide has turned on that front as well.
Are you fucking kidding me?!?!
I'm gonna be sick....
Shit, is that a first down? FUCK!
You are correct sir.
worse than ap state.... Hoke will have to win multiple national titles to wash this one away. Not too confident in that possibility anymore
App state won multiple national titles.... they were a good fcs program... akron doesn't compare
We were -27 vs Appy state.... -38 for this game....
yep, appy st was actually a good football team
Oooh, not a first. MUST. GET. STOP.
Down to one play.
that was an idiotic playcall
One play to determine the game. I can't fucking believe it.
Worst. Win. Ever.
My thoughts exactly.
Worst win ever, ever.
with any swagger today.
I'll take it.
We don't deserve it.
If I see another player thump his chest in "pride" I'm gonna puke.
Worst win ever
Time to get my drink on and relax!!
Maybe I'm just some kind of entitled asshole Michigan fan, but I don't get why the players are even celebrating. Maybe I take this shit too seriously and should know better as an adult. I don't get why anyone is happy. I'm disgusted, and I don't even play for them. I'd be sick right now in their shoes.
You aren't. It's probably the true definition of sheer relief...but yeah. I'd go to the locker room and prepare for losers p and pizza.
28-24 Michigan. Ballgame.
Fucking absolutely fucking pathetic game. Fucking god damn it.
Honestly, that's like losing your virginity to an ugly girl. Yeah, you finally scored, but what's everyone going to think when they know?
Aw. Sorry your Zips lost.
I have a headache.
Play like garbage
We played like complete crap and managed to win. Not the first team in history to do that. Get a grip, we're 3-0.
I'd feel a lot better with that analogy if Akron goes 7-5 rather than their projected 1-11.
Really? Because I don't care much. This game is a distant memory and another win after our next game.
I agree. Today sucked, but it's over. It's a win. If we don't get any more or we get all of them, today has no bearing
Literally the worst Michigan win I've ever seen. I'm in shock. Either we didn't prepare one bit for Akron, the team was hungover, or we have A LOT less talent than we thought. I can't even process this right now, but thank God we won.
We're lucky that we didn't get a personal foul on that hit to the QB's head.
Cue the Muppets!
As bad as I've ever seen. Michigan was totally unprepared mentally to play this game, our offensive play calling was abyssmal, and our defense made no adjustments the whole game.
Devin Gardner and Al Borges are a very bad combination.
This team better show up on the road next week
So did anyone guess the correct score?
Very nice win by Michigan. I thought they played inspired this game. Great goal line stop.
It had to be the donuts.
The guy who killed us with turnovers, couldn't make any throws, and only made running plays in blowouts?
We won. Akron was full I mercenaries. Players from Florida state, Wisconsin, etc. Yea they played poorly their first two games but they have some talent. We're 3-0 and are a top 15 team. Relax
Too bad those mercenaries didn't show up when UCF was running them out of the stadium by the second quarter. They also might want to consider not giving up almost 700 yards of offense to James Madison. Very little of what happened today has to do with Akron being good, or even Akron being improved. They've lost 27 straight road games and haven't beaten an FBS team since 2010. This is not Florida State lite just because they have some transfers. Walsh College here in North Canton has a couple of ours playing for them (Jerald Robinson, JT Turner.) Maybe if we play Walsh next week, we can use the transfer excuse when we look bad. It's OK to admit we played shitty today. Doesn't make you a bad fan. All it means is you have eyes.
