Thank you, Lord Football.
This is a wonderful football community. I love Michigan. But I just need this time for myself.
It's not you, it's me. Or its we. Whatever.
I'll see mgoblog in about 11 days-ish. Dios Mio.
+1 to you
I have some books I have been meaning to finish.
I miss the what are you reading, listening to and or watching threads.
Bye week and I'm on vacation starting monday...I can't wait.
I was never more excited in August for us to start playing.
And now I've never been more excited for us to stop playing.
SAVE US JAKE RYAN!!!
I think we could use it. Man these last 2 weeks have been scary.
What is going on with this team! This is RR all over again!
Well, no, lets not have that happen. Spend the bye week doing situps or working on your car, or maybe finishing that piece of furniture you have been thinking about. Or raking leaves. But we need the coach and the players, so they can improve together.
I'll take "Overreactive and Ridiculous Things" for $500, Alex
What is Outdated Jeopardy Joke, There's No Longer a $500 Clue?
We actually rallied back and won. Still scary, still undefeated though.
Notre dame got to a national title game in this fashion haha. Fuck. These games are no fun!
Got to the title game in games with opponents who might have had down years, but not historically bad decades. The last time we needed a bye week this badly was 2008. Our D is saving our ass. This feels like a 2-2 record and this isn't a good way to enter conference play.
Notre Dame needed OT to beat Purdue and should have lost to Pitt. Both bad teams and Notre Dame went to National Championship game (I think. Not real sure if they showed up.) So say we are a top 40 team? Close victories against bad teams. Same. I just hope we can improve (HOLD ONTO THE BALL), which is what nonconference schedule is for, right?
There have been many years where I have said "We are the best one loss team in the country.", or even some times "We are the best two loss team in the country."
This year I can safely say "We are the worst undefeated team in the country."
Can you be an undefeated team from a major conference in the beginning of October, and still be unranked? Cause that will be us.
Bad timing for a bye week. Gonna kill all our momentum from our last couple wins
And you sir and your heart enjoy your bye week.
had a wierd thing happen. Read your post and snorted a mouthful of Newcastle out my nose, the caught it in mid-air and snorted it back in.
Seriously thinking about taking this act on the road.
I'm shooting ducks in the UP next weekend. I need a week off this team.
It's a shame to waste beer, especially after a game like that, so I'm glad you got it back in there
If you get to drink the same beer twice?
Next week I will picture for one brief moment the O-Line doing stairs in the Stadium wearing pink skirts and then I will enjoy an autumn Saturday in Michigan thinking nary of nary doing nothing.
Maybe we can teach Devin gardener how to not fumble, our linemen how to drive block, and our D not to be so soft on every down.
Gives me a bigger appreciation for Denard. He would run it into the blender every play, get just EFFING DRILLED, then hop up smiling. Asking for more.
DG carries the ball one handed on his hip, fumbles every time he gets hit , and throws just as many int's.
bet Taylor Lewan is really glad he came back for this.
yes I said it. Other thn getting a win, this game was a complete tire fire. Michigan is going to get its ass kicked if it plays like that in the BIG.
Did you just copy and paste from the deleted "snowflakes"thread? I just saw that exact same comment.
Somebody tracked in the snow from outside.
but we settled down a bit in the 2nd half. If we'd stop turning the ball over so damn much, we'd be alright. That flippin fumble off of Da'Mario's ankle was a "of f*cking course that happens' moment. Defense was very solid
was soft up the middle. I'm actually okay with the guys on the outside, even with the occasional corner out route that was completed, or reviewed and actually dropped. But the 10-15 yd stuff across the middle should not be happening at this frequency.
Defense basically gave up 7. Not going to hold that 10 yard TD drive against them. More importantly the D line did show improvement, we got a sack with a 3 man rush. I think the D is good enough to win the Big 10 but the turnovers need to stop and the offense is really lost.
And the BIG sucks. OSU is maybe good, but they will get over-seeded in the bowl dance and they will be violated. I don't understand the universe anymore.
we can keep bye week turnovers under 4
when we only turn the ball over 3 times in a game.
At least we have a week where the team doesn't have to focus on the upcoming game. Hopefully they are able fix the mistakes we have been seeing the past two weeks.
They said they focused the last 2 weeks but I'm not sure how accurate that actually is.
what they have been focusing on....
I mistakenly let my wife know that there is no Michigan game next week, meaning that she will attempt to plan my weekend. I do have one thing I need to do, and that is trim back some of the faster growing shrubs, but I plan on having a cold so I can watch at least some football regardless (note: this strategy does not typically work until the afternoon games).
Have a hangover on Saturday. Stay on the couch Sunday just to make sure you are 100% for Monday.
Wife Day 2013. Survive and advance.
I expect and demand a post.
As a wife myself, it is intriguing to get a glimpse inside the minds of the husbands. What it also does is make me realize how lucky my husband is - I sit around and watch football all day on Saturday. Definitely negotiating material.
Do whatever she damn well tells you. You're welcome in advance.
...except this time. This bye week is going to feel very relaxing. Maybe I can grow back some of the hair I pulled out.
Vegas has us as a coin flip.
