ESPN in all it's greatness just showed highlights from "The Horror" on their season kickoff preview. Damn them!
alternate headline: man does job
if you would not have scheduled the rematch for three years from now, this game would have ceased to exist!
It's what Dave Brandon would have wanted...
a media whore?
Selective amnesia helps...what "horror"?
This whole thing sucks. Now I have to re-convince the Buckeye fans around here that App State is a better program than Akron, YSU, etc. Doesn't Brandon realize it's impossible for us to get "revenge" on a DI-AA program. I'm sorry "Division I - Football Championship Subdivision".
There has been talk of App. St. moving to 1-A in the near future, so by the time we play them they could be at least out of 1-AA.
They will always be the 1-AA team that beat us in our own house.
i wasn't going to drink this early in the morning but you've now given me a reason
It's 5 o'clock somewhere, right? I'm there with you, but I'm at work so not so much.
Wait we played football for the past 4 years? When did this happen, where was I?
there are no highlights from the horror.
When just the announcement that we will play App State 3 years down the road kicks off the flood of "classic" replays, you know it will be a long 3 years, and especially a long 3 months in 2014.
of that game was when the team started to get "pumped" after halftime. I remember M. Trent getting that interception and strut running to the sidelines after flipping the ball and jawing a little bit. I remember thinking that the very fact that we need to be engaging a comeback was embarrassing enough. Had no belief they would actually lose at the time, but was already pissed.
It's time we got over the whole Appy State thing. It happened.
I'm actually loking forward to playing them again. Hopefully this time we will smoke them out of the building and restore order to the world. I think it will be cathartic.
Nothing good can come of that rematch. Even if we win by 50+ points the media and the haters will ask "remember when you lost to them in 2007?"
If we do we should have but we also look like dicks. If we don't we look weak and could have lost again. It's a lose , lose situation if you ask me.
That game will be forgotten when Michigan wins a national championship again. Two years before Alabama won the BCS title they lost to Univ of Louisiana Monroe, one of the worst teams in 1A, much worse than App St. Nick Saban then made an analogy to Pearl Harbor or 9-11 or something stupid. So all we need to do to shut up the haters is get back on top.
ESPN will show "The Horror" to start College Football season for at least the next 10 years and will probably show clips of it during pregame for Michigan's first game every year for the next 15-20 years.
Holy mircroscopic font size Batman!
It's irrational to think that he won't hurt the program.
when did this happen? the last thing I really remember is losing in the rose bowl to USC and then there's brief memories of beating Florida I think and then humiliating Notre Dame a few times...but I don't remember any "Horror". Strange
So it begins...
We can all agree that those years never happened, and thus move on......!!!!
2007 Notre Dame, Penn State, Michigan State, Illinois, Florida, 2008 Wisconsin, 2009-Notre Dame and 2010-Notre Dame, I'd still like to keep those.
But if everything else didn't happen, yeah. I'm fine with that.
Put fingers in ears. Then, go, "LALALALALALA CAN'T HEAR YOU" over and over.
These horrors you refer to must have happen on a different plane...not in this lifetime!
I always just own it. Yes, it happened. Yes, it sucked, and still sucks. But everytime an OSU, ND, or MSU fan brings it up they're just looking for a reaction. when confronted with the "DER APP STATE!" I usually say, "Yeah, I remember it. It happened. I don't let one game define my view of a program that has been around for 132 years. If you do, that's your choice." When I don't get worked up into a frothing, bumbling mess, they usually shut up or move on.
But if we ever schedule them again, they'll replay the game a bunch. Oh wait, like I said before, they already repaly it all the time.
best not to fret.
Sceduling App State isn't a media ploy it's a chance to even the score.
Don't hate on us daytime/early-morning posters who happen to have a few hours of soap operas to catch every afternoon. We have to stay fresh and current with all the developments. Plus there's "Ellen" on at 4, and she's perfect for doing our knitting, petting our cats, and posting on MGoBoard.
