Also hope V.Smith's head is alright.
This is maaaaybe premature there, ESPN. Maryland #1 FWIW.
Also hope V.Smith's head is alright.
Srsly. That dance and faceplant was scarier than if he had just stayed down.
And Stonum's crotch too! I'm pretty sure my groin would have ripped in 16 places if it was me making that kick return.
It definitely looked like the knee. However when they showed him later I swore he had a huge ice pack on his ankle. Hoping for the best either way and wish him a speedy recovery.
Any injury updates? VS looked like he might he have a concussion.
...I hope my head is okay.
I do hope that all our players are healed for next week. I pray for a healthy Mike Martin if only so he could stomp a mud hole in TP.
Fuck Ohio State.
It is now the Game week. I know this is hard but lets keep our heads up. we have the biggest game of the year ahead of us and this would make this year a complete success. The team can do it and anything can happen. GO BLUE.
Wait there's another game left?
can kiss my ass
Oh my.....let the hate begin.
Justin Boren is a fat deep-fried twinky eating, sloppy looking sack of dookie.
Edit: He also smells of cat piss and nursing home.
match up better against OSU than Wisconsin. If Michigan offense can get off to a fast start, they have a shot of springing an upset over OSU. Wisconsin, Michigan defense have no chance because they can't stop against the power running game.
Win this game and the bowl game and we will all be slapping each other on the back all off season.
If we do that, I don't think our backs will be the only thing we'll be slapping.
I'm a Michigan fan, born and raised in Ohio. For 6 consecutive years I had my birthday ruined by Michigan losses. . . I'd like to start of new steak of depressed Buckeye fans on Thanksgiving weekend.
and now I live in Philly...so fuck Penn State too.
I have never seen UM beat OSU as a Michigan fan...
I hope this year the pain ends.
Who were you a fan of while Michigan was whoopin up on OSU
Are you like seven years old?
To be fair, I started watching UM football and taking it seriously when I was 12 or 13, and that was 2003. So I am more or less in the same boat.
I am on the same boat as you. I was a freshman in 2004. I think it is tough for so many to understand what it is like to never beaten your rival. I could care less about this rich rod stuff. UNITE AS ONE AGAINST THAT DAMN TEAM DOWN SOUTH!
I want Michigan to beat the fuck out of OSU.
But people in the other threads are saying we're 7-5 and we already lost to them! What's going on here???
Honestly, I'd take whatever happened against Wisconsin everytime the week before OSU if it meant that we would be able to beat those asstards in the state South of here. I hate Ohio State more than any other team that plays Michigan. I want Pryor served on a silver platter for Thanksgiving dinner.
But with today's additional injuries to Roh, Smith, etc, it's awfully tough... maybe my outlook will improve as the week goes on, but I doubt it... Not looking forward to dealing with another obnoxious fan base right now...
i hate the suckeyes. lets go into the worlds biggest toilet seat and crush them nuts. rip tressel and pryor's heads off and shit down their necks. hate week has begun GO BLUE
Did anyone else feel like this game went by super fast?
The first quarter was only a half hour long. The run game will do that.
That's super fast. Of course, that happens when one of the teams can run just about the whole second half.
better against OSU? What do you base that on? Michigan's stalwart defense, their superb special teams... or I know, it must be their efficient mistake free offense? This team will finish 7-6, accept it and make peace with what's coming. The only question to be asked against OSU... is the typical one asked before a firing squad... do you want a blindfold or not.
I'm Grumpy. Grump grump grumpy. Blah blah blah. I am fat too. If I were on the team my teammates would want to kill me. Blah blah blah. I root against my team because it makes me feel good win and lose. I suck at life. Blah blah blah.
That we see some new formations/packages that we haven't seen yet that have been in RR's back pocket specifically designed for this game. D Rob will lead us over, around and through the evil sweatervest empire and to the land of sweet, sweet victory.
Go Blue. Annihilate tuos.
I would like to see the football version of the flying V.
I'm pumped already. I really like the Game being on Thanksgiving weekend. Go Blue!
4 years I have spent hard-earned money on season tickets. This was the last one. THis was a fitting end. I ahve no doubt that one day michigan (quite probably under Rich Rod) will return to greatness, but you are lucky if you werent at michigan these four years like myself
98, 99, 2000, 2001 seasons for me. I am more in love with Michigan football now that I was when we were expected to win every single game. The heart in this team and what they have put in to get us to greatness in the future is awesome. We will all owe them when we are cleaning up in the years to come. At least you got to see 4 years of Michigan football. A lot of people can only see it through their tv's. You don't know how lucky you had it these last 4 years.
The turn will be that much sweeter for those of us who have remained steadfast and endured the good and the bad. We'll be back.
I think OSU will be playing the run. Time to open up the offense and throw to open up the running. TP could make more mistakes and may be our only hope. Our defense will give up their normal 35+ points to a good team, so the offense will have to be clicking to have any chance against OSU.
I don't get the optimism here. We're likely looking at a carbon copy next week of what just happened today. Unless the offense scores on every possession they have in the first half next week, it will be very difficult to win. O State's defense is as good if not better than Wisconsin's. Handing off to a RB or the QB keeper won't get it done. They are predictable plays after a whole year of film and able to be stopped by a well coached defense. Denard must throw accurately downfield from the beginning of the game for us to have any chance.
I'm pretty sure Wisconsin was quite predictable today and we couldn't stop them.
Those predictable runs got Denard 121 at 5.5 per as well.
Our offense is not where it will be next year or beyond but the main problems lie elsewhere.
To Denard for some nice stats, but isn't it all about the W's? My point was that we may need throw to set up the run, and do it earlier, next week. Playing catch up in Columbus won't be a fun experience.
Yes, bring them on! I wish we could fast-forward to next weekend.
I thought so at the beggining of the season. I thought so when wiskey beat tOSU. The D may be slightly better, but their offense isn't even close. Wisky's rushing attack should run over our D like a steamroller just on sheer mass. I'm pretty sure after today that we have a chance at least against the buckeyes,
That's Judas Boren, and to think I held his dad in such high regard. I do think we match up better with that team down there. I am just sorry our boys have to set foot in that awful town.
has a small penis.
Pryor is prone to mistakes, especially when throwing, so I'm not as worried about OSU's offense as I am about their defense. We're going to need to score a lot, and we can't have a blanked first half like we did today.
3 Things I Wish Would Go The Way of the Dodo Bird:
2) the "you suck" chant
3) see 1 and 2 above
If we dont stop the run the most basic formation in football we will lose, and the offense must be consistant and we need pryor to make misstakes, but I feel we have a chance
Only seen Michigan beat them once where I was old enough to know what was going on. (age and 2003) and Now for the past 4 years Ive been to every game and would absoultely love to kick their ass. I think I would be happiest I've been in years.
