The Big Ten Network's Preview of the Michigan 2012 football season will premire tonight at 10 PM. It's the final stop on their tour, they were in Ann Arbor yesterday after visiting MSU on Wednesday. Looking forward to it.
BTN Michigan Preview at 10 PM
According to my guide
I suck at telling time
With some Bo action at 8:30. Need the preview somethin' fierce -- jonesin'
10:00 ET on my guide as well, with the 2011 Michigan v Ohio State game following at 11:00
I hate BTN's analysis (hardly better than ESPN's, imo), but I'll be watching regardless, as this is really the only opportunity to get inside The Fort.
Gerry Dinardo does very little for me, doesn't seem like he's a great analyst.
I also think that Hoke probably showed these guys very little. He's been very close to the chest with everything so far, and I doubt he had the team run anything besides the basic schemes with the camera's on them.
and I live waaay over on the west side of town, but I can hear the marching band practicing. Mostly the percussion.
It's coming. Just a few more days.
The next week of work is going to be bad....
^^^^ This. Don't take it for granted. I played snare in hs marching band and still get chills from a good drumline. My MMB album has gotten some serious play in the past week.
I'm glad they're still bringing the noise.
I live on S FIfth and have heard them several nights in a row until 10 or so.
Gets me pumped every time!
There were still people around working on stuff.
I'm sitting in front of my TV drinking a beer in anticipation of OMG FOOTBALL!
Not the Bo special -- I'm alright with this ;)
Is going to be Denarded.
Talking about the 06 OSU Game. Crable.....
Lol Dong Forest sighting to open the show.
Ahhhh something with, hopefully, substance.
Yawn... show me some actual footage, please
I don't think Jerry gets it.
Let the Fred Flinstone jokes commence
...as a Clint Eastwood State Fightin' John Wayne.
Yabba dabba don't
BTN doesn't realize that Roy changed his jersey number.
you a have 1 and you have a 2 and you mix and match and presto magico, 12 and 21, who cares really, anyway? you'll figure it out.
Yeah thanks BTN for your indepth info, the fort pretended to let them in, hilarious. Hoke gonna have some surprises for Saban, everyone chalking up this game as a Bama win, take it to the bank, we'll see. I think we surprise them and win, just a gut feeling.
Talkin bout Roy and show highlights of Devin.. Love it
They used Gardner footage when mentioning Roy Roundtree... someone didn't give them the memo on the number changes. Fail
Loving how when they discuss Roundtree, they show Devin. Got the numbers mixed up.
"welllll... " Drink!
They were talking about Roy Roundtree and were showing #12 at wideout catching a TD. Too bad that's Gardner now and Roundtree is #21.
Just showed Gardner making a few catches (1 for a TD) - He looks like a monster at receiver..wow.
Does anyone hate how the announcer says, "BTN Noooooowwwww". And like growls it? It makes me cringe every time.
I like it. It's so over-the-top, it's funny.
Noticed they covered up the fences that used to have holes in it with Blue border with Michigan designs on it. Some of it says 3 Heisman Trophy winners, 895 wins etc.
Looks nice and keeps people out.
Love the phrasing. Fencing entrepeneurs out there, you've got your ad campaign!
Dinardo and Griffith are giving me kind of a downer vibe here - let's get on the positive guys.
In truth they are being pretty objective but I want to hear why we can beat Alabama.
They did the same thing last year and we won 11 games....just saying.
Good point - it's just annoying when you're listening to it.
Someone forgot to tell BTN that Roundtree isn't #12 anymore. Haha. Stupids.
Like the shadow, coach!
Wr is the "area" of most concern. Maybe in 7 on 7.
Jerry Gallon will get it done
Devin's got some abs. I remember talking to some friends on Pioneer's football team who went up against him, and they called him "110% man." That he is.
You could grate cheese on Gardner's abs.
Love that they haven't showed BTN one padded practice. The hell with the media, no news is good news.
looks like he's 30
Denard just threw a horrid pass! PANIC!
Denard is wearing a solid white practice jersey! New jerseyz!!!!!!1!;@/
Wow, he really shouldn't have been a 4 star to rivals
Terry Richardson "may not have an immediate impact now, but may have an immediate impact later."
Good hire BTN.
Interesting they mentioned T-Rich. I thought he'd be an automatic redshirt for this season.
Our helmets have (wings) with three stripes coming off of them, or Adidas would have found a place to put stripes on the practice helmets. To match the super stripey practice jerseys, that is.
the 1 is too many campaign.
I must have missed that. Could you give a quick explanation?
It was about violence against women. A number of influential guys talking about how even one instance is too many.
I saw that one with the sound turned off and had no idea what the message was supposed to be.
Glad to hear Terry Richardson "will have an immediate impact later."
But a small part of me is beginning to believe that Kovacs has had enough of telling the "former walk-on" story.
Tom Dienhart's front tooth...
Love the Gardner hype. I generally try to keep expectations in check when talking about position switches to areas devoid of depth, but he actually looks like the real deal.
He sure looks the part from the little I've seen and it's encouraging that everyone from Sam Webb to the BTN guys are impressed with him there.
Roh, Campbell, Black, and Washington as the front four? Definitely not what I thought it would be.
That's a beefy d-line
I laughed when I read your signature and saw your use of "beefy" in your comment.
That hype about Gardner really makes wonder.
The "elephant tusk" road jerseys seem to have become the practice jerseys.
Anyone know when the official depth chart is going to be released? Day or two before the game?
Thursday before the game. HOWEVA, for the really interesting battles you'll probably get an X OR Y. For example, the depth chart at LG will almost certainly read "Mealer OR Kalis OR Burzynski"
Mario Ojemudia running a lot with the ones. I like what I'm hearing. I'm sure he's just situational, but I would love to see a good pass rusher like him on the field.
Seriously? Now theyre going to replay Ohio @ MI? Do They not know that I have to work in the morning???
Let's wear all Blue. Let's wear Blue pants. Let's wear Maize jerseys. Let's not.
Tom Dienhart said he asked Jerry Montgomery who would start at Dline and he said Black, Campbell, Washington, and Roh. No mention of Beyer nad I did not see him in any of the clips of practice. Revsine also said that Ojemudia was getting a ton of reps with the ones . . . am I missing something about Beyer??
That worried me a bit too, he's going to need to step up big time in Black's absence. I think most practice reports have been positive on him though, and Pipkins didn't get much of a mention either, so I wouldn't think too much of it.
This is the only remotely insider information we've received about practice, so we're gonna overreact to everything.
Patience, you must have.
I think this means that Q Wash is the first sub at the interior positions. Rush ends are coached by Mattison I believe and not Montgomery. Starting line should still be Roh-Campbell-Black-Beyer.
I remember in spring practice interviews all the d starters mentioning Q repeatedly with the others like Black and Campbell and I just shrugged it off as positive buzz, but if he's stepped up enough to be a solid interior lineman then our DLine just went from speedy/athletic to BEEEEFCAAAAAAAAKE!!!!!!!!!! in a big hurry.
I'd love to see Qwash at NT and BWC go 1 on 1 inside. Can't help but wonder how much of this was planned (if true) and how much of it was just smokescreen to keep the lid on our lineups and starters before the Alabama game until it's too late for them to gameplan for us.
Wait a minute, the Dline is going to be to be Roh, Washington, Campbell, Black?
I pray that Quinton has made monumental strides. Why no mention AT ALL of Pipkins?? WTH
Looked like a moose! From all the descriptions of him in HS I thought he would look like Eric Riley in shoulder pads. Loving this freshman class more and more.
blinded for some reason after the Denard segment ...
