Day 14 Countdown to Kickoff
It's like being a kid again, waiting for Christmas to arrive
Look out for the MSRK negbomb!
I had almost forgotten about the "I'll just take that, thanks" interception by Morgan in the UConn game last year. He followed it up with nearly a 30-yard return too, as I recall now, but yeah, it was definitely a highlight in that game.
Two weeks now....it seems so close now yet these two weeks will probably seem like the slowest of all as I wait for the season to start.
The pick vs UCONN reminded of Sir Charles vs state....except that #2 was about a foot higher....and on the sideline......and gave us the great shoulder shrug afterwards...
More of a shoulder shimmy.
Is anyone going to tailgate before the scrimmage tonight?
I want to. Wondering if others will be.
Do you know what the parking situation is going to be?
Nope. Taking kids to dinner downtown.
Have any connections in the UMich dental school? Wanna work some magic for me? Haha. I'll be applying there next year. I'm on average in terms of stats for matriculating students, but I need something to separate me from the pack, if you will.
Good luck with that.
Edit: Just noticed your sig. Elaboration no longer necessary.
If you can wire me $500 I'll show you the world.
I don't even ask $500... all I need is your SS#, 2 credit card #s, and your mother's maiden name. I know this prince in a Nigerian jail... if we let him out, dental school is yours.
Maiden name: Merde-A-Toi.
He'll be gone soon enough.
He'll be gone soon enough.
Still here, bitch.
Slob on the knob.
I want to bring to your attention that this is the guy that created the Peppers torn ACL thread.
Would you mind sharing with me why you did that?
Well, I explained everything in the postbang 'no torn ACL' thread. Basically, I admitted it was a foolish and stupid joke. Something that I conjured up as I was passing time in a Brooklyn apartment. That's all there's to it.
...of Morgan's UConn pick. Damn, what a snag that was. Amazingly athletic play in an otherwise maddening win-that-feels-like-a-loss.
Our linebacking talent is so stacked. Very excited to see this defense play this year. 14 dayssssssss
I NEED FOOTBAWL!
I need that and BEER!
Panic, the oline looked horrible in those clips!
The way I see it, and like quiverfull will tell it, if you lay out some manure in the field, a good crop will grow.
Last year's performance will be the fertilizer for this year's bountiful season and us fans will reap in the return to glory!!
By the way, this Kool Aid is delicious!
2 weeks! Can hardly wait! Go Blue!!
Let's let ND have return to glory. I'd rather have has returned to glory indisputably.
Gardner's pick at 1:36 = yikes.
Defense looks great though
I'm as big a DG supporter as there is but man that conjured up some brutal flashbacks from early last year...
Is there any way to see tonights scrimmage without being there?
Unfortunately no. Even the little bit of actual strategy that Hoke unveils, he won't want on film
I haven't heard either way, but it's pretty unlikely they'd announce it this late.
Oh well, maybe some tape will be released afterwards. Nd is going to have an entire game of offense to watch on us anyways.
With all the talk of our line backers I just realized this is the first year we haven't heard anything about freshmen LBs playing and it's nice. Sucks to see a player like Bolden is already a true junior and he may not start until he's a senior so I'm glad they are finally getting a chance to redshirt some of these LBs.
Bolden starts this year.
I've always liked the way Desmond Morgan carries himself. Just seems like a good guy.
I hope that he has a great year. Can't wait for the season to start!
Unless you're talking about his sophomore year.
He's practicing corner right now because Hoke and Mattison have agreed that he's got the NB spot down and they're comfortable with him there.
He's the starting nickel.
Now he's learning the CB spot so he can move into that role in the future.
Even next year, either he or Countess will be the NB and the other will start alongside Lewis.
end up starting there at any point in this season, damn. He'd be almost beyond the hype.
I would be tremendously surprised if that happened. Plus, he can do some serious damage at nickel.
Next year JP will be at safety and Lewis, Stribling and Countess will be the corners and NB starters in some order.
I'm not a football mind in any way so I'm most assuredly wrong but I would think that could get the best players on the field at the same time.
