stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
I personally cannot wait for the flood of Fitzgerald gifs that come out of that obnoxiousness. I am not a gif creator, but I imagine him on a trampoline or wearing a cheerleader outfit with pom poms, pigtails & skirt.
As for Demens, my friend & I watching on TV were both saying before the play started "Why are they only putting 3 on the line? Why are the rest playing so far back? Oh boy...." and then as the play ended "OHHHH!, That's why so Demens could tee him up. THAT WAS AWESOME!" I really need to start trusting Mattison more. He really has earned it at this point.

Although, it was a terrible day for the defense. All Northwestern does all game is pitch the ball or not pitch the ball, and it looked like we had no idea how to defend this simple thing until the last drive. This is the first time the D looked ill-prepared under Mattison.
I know the stats won't look that great but this is a really hard offens to prepare for and adjust to. I don't think it's a case of being ill prepared. Up tempo/option offenses are just difficult to prepare for. Look at what Texas A&M's up tempo did to Alabama today.
See Air Force. It seems the option is Mattison's achilles heel.

Well, that and also be hyper-efficient at passing the ball. Their two QBs combined to go 14-21 for 183 yards and 3 TDs. Only one of their four TDs actually came on the ground.
up the middle early on. The D had to pretty much anticipate the whole smorgasbord.
There's a reason why nobody stopped Nebraska doing this for two decades, and why Navy and Air Force run effectivelymdespite having no talent: the option is hard to defend.
Don't forget that NU had a bye so they had plenty of time to work on tweaks to the option.

This tackle reminds me a lot of the Brandon Graham hit against MSU in 2010(?) at the goaline.

but that defensive alignment seemed like a straight up dare from Mattison. It's almost like he was trying to force the offense into handing off to the dive back by giving them a look they couldn't pass up... then LOL Demens.
One of the great things about this tackle, aside from its technical soundness, is that Tyris Jones, in his very limited time in the game for Northwestern, had 2 carries for 2 yards. This was not the 2-yard carry.

Gasp. Hold breath. Turn Blue!
Michigan Resurgent? Michigan Resurgent!
The beatings will continue until the uniforms improve!
OH YES DOT GIF
Avatar is a reference to this. Go Blue!
Is there a way to make this my desktop background? I just can't stop watching it!
I'll have one, please. http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=espn:8617394&startTime=01:40
Gibbons just looks like a nerd in the GIf...I can see him thinking 'What do I do now' alot...
I remember, during one of the (post-game?) pressers last year, that Hoke was asked what he likes most about the team, and he said "I like that they like each other". The random silliness between Roy and Gibbons couldn't be a better example of that, particularly one between a special teams player and one from the offense.

I am rock hard after watching this.
you are not required to share.
my god, perfect form in that situation.
Look at Roh getting upfield to force the give then hopping back the 2 yards to the LOS to remove the cutback. He defies physics with that move.
It's hypnotic. Can't stop watching.
No matter who had that ball, the qb, the RB on the dive, or the pitch man, it looded like we had that play defended and stopped
I saw this play once from the endzone camera. That would make a mighty fine gif. No skills or I would do it myself.
He keeps getting back up and trying to get that first down.
....but Demens...just keeps beasting the kid.
