Thanks for passing on that second down. Couldn't have done it without you.
Michigan Fans Everywhere
Brian Kelly circa 2011 is going to offer him a shoulder to scowl on, as will Charlie Weis circa 2009.
I think I speak for all Wolverines when I say, "Fuck Dantonio."
"Where's the threat?"
"PASSING ON MOTHERFUCKIN SECOND DOWN WITH THE LEAD NEAR THE END OF THE GAME!" ~ Charlie Weis, Brian Kelly, Mark Dantonio
I just plain don't like you.
I would call Dantonio a douchebag, but at least douchebags serve a constructive purpose in keeping ladyparts hygenic.
Mark Dantonio. Mark Dantonio!!!
DANTONIO.... THE PRIDE IS BACK LITTLE BROTHER!!!
Love ya buddy!
MSU played a helluva game considering all their problems.
To come out an play the way they did. Ian not too thrilled with our play calling though.
I can confirm that I was not thrilled with our play calling.
Dudes got balls the size of michigan stadium to call the fake punt on your own twelve
If that had failed, he'd be hanging out at the unemployment line with JLS.
Realize he took an inferior team on he road and basically handled us, right?
Basically, screw him!
Who cares about moral victories. We won, they lost! 1-3 in B1G play and headed straight for the Outback Bowl simply because PSU and Ohio arent eligible for that spot.
six games to go to a bowl game. They're not going to do that!!!
the line opened at 11 1/2 and not sure where it finished. Outcoached our staff and probably had the game won.
Once again, DRob stinks against a good D and if not for the awesomeness of Dileo & Gibbons, your drowning your sorrows somewhere.
Ummm so? Michigan doesn't cover more often than not. Maybe you should switch teams.
On their coaches out coaching ours (especially OC and ST).
How the fuck did our ST coach not expect a fake punt?
Why did Borges call the same three plays ALL game?
How the fuck did our ST coach not expect a fake punt?We have a special teams coach?
I have a hard time saying that they out coached us on special teams, on the basis of the fake punt, when you consider that the field goal they missed were the points difference in the game. Add to that that our kickers were four for four, which still continues to be an amazing COACHING story, considering what Gibbons had to come back from after his experience with the prior coaching staff.
This is true. There's really no way to say that they won the special teams battle today, not with the way the game turned out.
HOWEVA, it was indeed terrible to not be ready for that fake punt.
HOWEVA HOWEVA, it is also pretty funny that Sparty sacrificed yet another pre-Michigan game (what are they, 1-4 now in the week before Michigan?) and got nothing for it.
I'd say the coaching advantage goes to us.
Ready for a fake punt? Inside their own 25 yard line? I give credit to Dantonio for having the balls to call that up, but I'll give our ST coach a pass for not looking for a fake punt in a one point game with lots of time left in the 4th.
The bright side is that Sparty burned that play for nothing and now won't be able to dial it up again. We also didn't have to see the post game interview where he sits there with that stupid smirk on his face telling us what that play was called. I wonder if he feels complete now?
but neglect to mention that he doesn't throw the ball to himself. Is Denard frustrating at times.......yabetcha. We played the only defense on our scedule that is capable of stopping us and walked out with a huge win.
All brunettes are not pretty but they are still brunettes
Alabama and Notre Dame?
i've seen many very pretty brunettes.
but what would they be doing?
... they played a good game, but the stats were pretty even.
UM had 326 yds of offense and 12 pts. How exactly is that "handling"?
He handled us... but then he decided to throw the ball while trying to close out the game. He runs on that play and I think we run out of time before kicking the FG. Our coaching staff is as good as Les Miles when it comes to clock management.
In a completely frustrating manner, this seems to be correct.
What game did you watch? MSU had 2 drives the entire game, and 1 was the result of a very lucky and timely fake punt. Our O had plenty of opportunities and failed to execute.
Correction...An inferior offense on the road... That defense is still one of the better defenses we will face this year.
realize that we won the game, right? This is what MSU have done in all their games this year. Their defense has kept them in every game they played. The Vegas line of over a touchdown was ludicrous from the start.
All is right in the universe !!!!!!
He was playing to win. Just like on that fake punt. Major respect to him and his team.
Amen. Don't like the guy, but he had his team prepared, and ready to play. Also threw everything they had at us in order to try and win.
You can give credit to Dantonio for a lot of things.
But not for having his team ready to play. It's Sparty. Their obsession with Michigan is disturbing. Pathological. They're going to be ready for the game even if Perles or JLS or Izzo is coaching them. The history shows they're always ready to play us, no matter who the coach is. I'd think that they gave their players some weird Ludovico/Dollhouse hypnotic conditioning, except that I've met plenty of Sparty fans who have the same inferiority complex/obsession/paranoia syndrome.
played his hand by punting late in the game relying on the d to not BREAK but not to BEND!!
Kudos to GMat and coaches.
Didn't you go to state? That makes it not that surprising that you'd respect the team, sort of surprising that anyone could respect dantonio. I respect his coaching ability, there is nothing about the man to respect.
How can anyone look into those beady eyes and retrieve the word "respect" from their vocabulary?
Triple Stampies, No fakies
