Wow. Wilson is amazing
Big 10 Title Game 4th Quarter Open Thread
No Michigan game=every thread gets bombed by posts.
Im at the game or more social watching the game at a bar or with friends. Others too I guess.
Whats that now?
If UW wants to win, they are going to have to hustle. They have to know that they won't be able to stop MSU if they get the ball back, so they need to score quickley, then let MSU score quickley, and then have a winning score again at the end. I don't think this is going to happen.
This is the game here.
Yes. 1st Down Badgers!
Edt: Double yes -- TD Badgers
Edit Edit: Triple yes - 2 pt conversion Badgers.
Whoa. I still want Wisconsin to win.
TD - Wisconsin!
Is it me or are the guys calling the game annoying?
42-39! Go Badgers!
I found them annoying in that game too.
They are the same guys.
Which is ironic as this has reminded me of a MAC game several times.
He reminds me of a high school kid calling the junior game.
My "favorite" was one they said "a great play be Worthy gets negated by a penalty" and ignored the it was negated by a penalty on Worthy himself (offside) and that the head start he got in commiting the penalty made the great play possible.
Do people really not know who Gus Johnson is?
What a catch! TD and 2
on my DTV feed because I read your post and 15 seconds later saw the play you already called!
"OOOHHHHH WHAT A CATCH!!!!" = my new text ringtone :D
Anyone have a stream that is not the firstrowsports one? It's blocked at my work.
Nobody talks about Gus Muthafuckin Johnson like that and gets away with it.
How dare you belittle Gus Johnson's commentating!
DUCKWORTH! HOLY SHIT!
How do you guys not know who Gus Johnson is? Do you not watch march madness? He is the best.
I know who Gus Johnson is lol. I actually love his enthusiasm as an announcer.
LOVE the commentary on this game.
So does the winner really matter for UM's BCS hopes?
There is a possibilty that MSU can lose and still be ranked higher than us.
If MSU loses by 3 or loses in OT, I'm not sure they will fall below us.
Two point conversion successful!
This game = Wow.
Do we need them to at this point, or not?
We might not jump the winner of this game.
Absolutely dominated, and is losing. Me likey...
This is the only conference championship game that has been remotely close.
When Wilson threw that 4th down pass up and they got that crazy catch all I could think of was Major League II.
If Gus Johnson reacts like that for a big 4th down conversion, his head is going to explode if Sparty scores on the next drive. this is by far the worst broadcast crew I have EVER seen/heard.
I'm so confused...Gus Johnson is making think it's March!!
I would take Gus Johnson's enthusiam while calling a game over Craig James, Pam Ward, Matt Millen, or any of the average commentators at ESPN.
like a hockey game, no?
Me and my eardrums
These guys are genuinely excited to be doing this game. Im glad to see and hear their enthusiasm. After weeks of Spielman crushing my fun watching UM games with his hate of our team and undying praise for all things buckeye.
That said, does anyone else feel Wisconsin did that last drive through sheer player grit, despite the work of their coaches?
That drive reminded me of UTL, when Denard was throwing prayers, and the good guys kept coming down with them.
we already passed Oklahoma it's ok.
Will we get jumped by Baylor or TCU?
Gus Johnson makes college football even better!
Can't wait to see the winner of this game take a shit beating from Oregon. Go Ducks!
If MSU wins on a last second hail mary again I am going to punt a baby
that fucking announcer sounds like Jim Rome. I hate Jim Rome, "Mr. Tough Guy".
Oklahoma, Georgia, and Houston are all dropping behind us for sure. And there's no way that the Sugar Bowl is picking MSU over us.
Think there is a chance we get leapfrogged by TCU, Baylor, or Clemson?
Clemson: A possibility, but unlikely.
TCU: No chance.
Clemson has blowout losses to unranked Georgia Tech and North Carolina. It seems highly unlikely.
Baylor won, but their "big" win against Oklahoma doesn't look as great now with them getting plastered. Should hurt them in the computers.
Houston probably drops below us, not definitely. Baylor probably jumps us, Clemson possibly does. Thats a net gain of between 1 and 3 not including the Big Ten winner. Wisconsin loss almost seals the deal for us, but might not be necessary
Now let's see if Wisconsin can play defense when the chips are down.
Gus Johnson call of last Wisconsin drive was epic especially 4th down catch
This has been a great game today
That's going to get overturned.
That was not a catch.
holy christ this game is unreal
If the game holds up 42-39 I still think that Michigan gets in. Houston, Oklahoma, Georgia, and possibly Va Tech should drop out of the Top 15. If Michigan and MSU are both still in the Top 14 I think a 10-2 Michigan team who has won its last 3 games, is a more appealing team to the BCS bowls than a 10-3 MSU team who just lost IMHO.
This is the same crew that screwed us twice, so it will probably stand.
As soon as he hit the ground he bobbled it so how the hell could that possibly be a completion?
Cue meltdown on RCMB.
Are these the same guys who officiated our (Beat) Ohio game?
If so, WTF???
Even Ron Zook is calling Dantonio a pussy for that one.
One time, please.
Punt was a good call. I'm not confident about Wisconsin's ability to move the ball on offense, which means MSU will probably get another shot.
They have scored 42 points on them, and Monte Ball has rushed for over 100 yards and 3 touchdowns. How are you not confident?
really great effort, but a good call there. Where was that call when we were looking for it?
Kinda surprised Sparty punted there. Wisky's offense has been awful and two first downs ends the game no matter what part of the field they come on.
Edit: Wisconsin's defense, obviously. Not offense. Although that looks bad too right now.
Dantonio realizes that Bielema will do the predictable run-it-up-the-middle thing and he'll just line up to stop that.
Play action pass.
That's why Brew is out of work.
Go for the win, not running the ball three times.
Great - tell Russell Wilson he has to get just ONE first down and the game is over? Yeah - that punt call was awful.
I would roll Wilson out here giving him a run pass option. The boot maybe wide open off of play action
get a first down Wiscy!
A 3rd down conversion all but kills MSU here.
they should have gone play action on first down when Sparty was thinking stuff the run.
Did Wisconsin seriously just call an iso when everyone knew they were running?
Terrible. If they playfake, they get a free first down and the win.
That's the worst play calling I've ever seen. What was Bielema thinking?
lets go Wiscy D.
Time to step up.
EDIT: Glad to see the still teach acting at Wiscy lol
Did I say Bret was an idiot? WOW throw the ball!!!
Terrible play call by Wisconsin. You have to pass it. You haven't been able to run consistently all game.
The last 4 plays were some of the worst playcalling I have ever seen.
And UW will now lose. Again, 2 min is plent of time to score a TD for MSU considering they UW D.
EDIT: Or running into the kicker. Wow.
HAHAHAH STUPID SPATANS!!!!!!!
Did they run into the PUNTER
That was the best Sparty NO moment EVER!
Less than 4th and 5? Cos that would just be sweet. Sparty NO!
Dumb play MSU lol
Now Wisc runs out clock
and there it is.
dumb dumb dumb
How do u get a running into the kicker at that moment I the game? Where's the popcorn?
Sparty Nooooo! Yes!
Sparty NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ahahaha
That was some nice discipline by Sparty.
THAT RETURN!!!!! NEGATED!!!! SPARTAN HOPES AND DREAMS CRUSHEDDDD!!!
What a finish!
There's your 60 minutes of unnecessary roughness right there.
"I'm just glad we don't get caught" . . . Oops.
genius quote really sums up things. Hilarious!
Sparty's gonna Spart.
Just like the good old days.
That is stupidity at it's highest !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sparty just Sparty'd like they have never Sparty'd before! SO BEAUTIFUL!
Seriously, why couldn't you either get blown out or win. Damnit you motherfuckers.
And msu's luck just ran out
He's just lucky he isn't a south american soccer player. They tend to shoot people for plays that dumb down there.
Holy shit! That guy must feel horrible!
The awesome punt return will make the Spartan tears even sweeter!
homophobia, chest-puffing, complaining and frustration abound.
And msu's luck just ran out
SPARTY NOOOOO!!!! LMAO
Karma is one hell of a thing. I recall Narduzzi saying post-M game "I want sixty minutes of unnecessary roughness." Seeing him all gonzo out on the field almost made me puke, but I also think it had everything to do with the roughing call.
Ducks are going to feast. I believe that MSU D would have given them a pretty hard time. We'll never see it now, though.
Oh how sparty of you...
have fun in the irrelevant bowl sparty :D SPARTY NO!!!!!
Not that I didn't enjoy the ending but....stupid, stupid, stupid, Sparty.
Why even attempt to get close to the punter? You had a good return game, 1 timeout and 2 minutes left. That was a John L. move.
Bonfires are fun...
Sparty tears taste like candy and rainbows!
Michigan jersey for the Sparty game next year. Enough time will have passed for the pain to subside, and it will take a moment for the memory of this absolutely soul-crushing loss to resurface
A sign for next years game, a picture of gholston and "My names not Tom :'("
That put Crable to shame. A rare example of losing your head even for Sparty.
sparty got what they deserve
ENJOY THE RIDE HOME TO E. LANSING
claims he doesn't know if anyone touched the punter. stay classy.
His scowl is awesome. The presser with the questions was fun to watch. He owned the call though and took the heat off the player.
Dantonio pick a huge wedge of food out of his teeth in the 2nd quarter ... his hand drenched in saliva then eat it. The guy is an Ogre.
Isaiah Lewis....... Karma's a bitch.... The god's said you would pay for taunting Denard... heheeheheh
RCMB is a conucopia of shadenfreude at the moment. MSU pulls a SPARTY, NO! as only they know how...
The whining and bitching is de-fucking-licious. And they have the nerve to call us babies? Suck it. Hide yo' couches folks.
"Why would any MSU fan pay attention to what any former umaa player has to say unless they are your doctor, dentist or lawyer maybe your boss and its highly unlikely any of those scenarios exist"
Highly unlikely? I'd say insanely likely unless you're working the drive-thru for a living.
