Football Display Case
i find this extremely interesting
i may have altered the title
i thought this was america
like I said on twitter: that was almost as intense as Iowa NIT games
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
Did...did Les Miles just use proper clock management?
Hail to the college whose colors we wear,
Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue!
up to his tricks
I like how in that AT&T commerical they talked about that stupid ranking thing on the phone and every single team was an SEC team in the ranking.
You are a lazy ESPIN analyst - the Hemingway 4th qtr 2nd and goal ball did not, as you wrongly stated, "Hit the ground first so it was the right call by the official"
The ball did NOT hit the ground first, Hemingway made a heckuva catch. Moron.
Take your "oh, i want to be a dr so i don't have time for football at osu" crap somewhere else... Your facade of being an "educated football player" is a bunch of BS to everyone who hears your inch thin analysis.
One of John Cooper's finest. Jackass.
Michigan Men by choice, recognized by deeds, tested and proven by time.
Verne Lundquist is . . . a . . . . little . . . . slow . . . . on some of these calls.
Naah...it's just all that SEC speed that makes him seem slow.
Teams so close, it would be a shame if a bad call ruined this game.
Am tired of the nonsense that "ref's don't decide games". That's BS.
Some teams are so even that a bad call will swing the game. To say "well Team X should have done A, B or C" is BS because Team Y will counter them with another play or similar. So, when teams or even, and the refs blow it, yeah, that's an issue.
So, we got homered today, pure and simple. Congrats Kirk, Jim Delany misses Denard's head twist and sends the 3 blind mice to officiate our game. Jokers.
This is really not a particularly well played game.
Being big-time means being able to make plays on both sides of the ball, not just defensively.
"Stats are for losers. The final score is for winners." -Bill Belichick
Reminds me a lot of UM/OSU 1971-1974.
Which is to say I don't agree.
Have you watched these teams play in any other games?
Pitt QB is sacked in the closing minute but hurls the ball forward just before he hits the ground. Ruling on the field is a fumble and a Cincinnati recovery, but replay correctly overturns it and calls it an incomplete pass.
But replay can't call a penalty, nor can the officials after the review, so the obvious intentional grounding that the official would certainly have called if he'd correctly ruled incomplete on the field isn't called. It's 2nd and 10 instead of 2nd and 30.
The 20 yards keeps the drive alive and turns out to be just enough to get Pitt into field goal range...
...which they miss, so I guess justice is served.
Still something for the rules committee to look at in the offseason. It ought to be possible for the field officials to tell the replay official what they would have called if the call on the field is reversed, so the reversal is into the proper result.
I am not a fan of using replays to review penalties, but all of these helmet to helmet calls that have become the norm lately are starting to drive me crazy. There was a leading with the head call in the OSU/ Stanfod game, that in both real time and replay did not look bad at all. The officials called the pentalty which cost OSU the ball on the Stanford fumble and a OSU TD.
I wish in penalties of this sort, there would be some sort of check on the officials. I know they are trying to protect the plays but it is getting ridiculous.
You can sum up this sport in two words, 'You never know.'
Wait, we play this Alabama team next year?
Mostly, but Richardson is gone for sure. I would have much rather player them 2013 or 2014.-
By 2013-2014, Hoke will have his program in shape to outplayer Alabama ;)
but at a wedding in cleveland, they just played "hang on sloopy" and the only scotch here is JB. Shoot me.
ALWAYS remember the golden rule: He who has the gold, makes the rules
Single is always better.
Oregon gets a pick and scores on the first play from scrimage. 7-0 Oregon over Washington
Trick play fail. What a pick.
Edit: NVM. No way that's a pick.
Edit edit: Unless it is?
HOKEAMANIA RUNNIN' WILD
I thought I heard one of the announcers awkwardly try to refer to Wake Forest as the "Demon Deeks". Maybe it was just me.
Abort, Retry, Fail?
Demon Decs but yeah, that's a shortened nickname for them.
In the old days, I think Alabama gets the reception at the one.
But under recent rules, I think the INT call was correct.
Just like the Donovan Warren / Bill Lynch gum-throwing call.
We're getting dangerously close to "WTF WAS THAT?/MAD HATTER TIME."
...no way a 6-6 game calls for a rematch for Ntl Chmpshp, right? Right? RIGHT? Aw, c'mon! That's worse than koolaid crazy!
Wow... Mattieu had a fucking dirty cheap shot on Dre Kirkpatrick. That was just messed up. Hit him right in the throat...
How do the stud Wolverine defenses of old stack up against these monsters?
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.

It's hard to compare, because back then you could stockpile talent by giving 125 scholarships over 4 years...
At 3:10 in the 4th quarter. He sees an opening about 2 seconds into a designed run play and takes it for 20 yards. Sadly I couldn't even fathom Denard ever having the presence of mind to do that. Forget about his terrible passing, his best gift is running and he can't even use that talent to capacity unless told explicitly when to use it. How are we suddenly going to beat any other team we play with Borges and denard doing what they do?
I never thought I'd say this... But I'd rather have John Navarre.
I meant designed pass play
That d-line was amazing in '97. Linebackers would wreck Richardson all day. Safeties / corners were all honey badgers.
Oh yeah, and Saban's hair just went limp.
18 yd QB scramble.
I'm must be forgetting a couple, but I can't think of a single scramble by Denard on a pass play where he hurt the defense with a significant gain.
I'd think that Borges would have a play or two up his sleeve to take advantage of that situation.
Nobody runs a straight man against denard where every lb has their back turned.
The last time Michigan played in a defensive struggle this ugly, it was 1950 and they were playing in a blizzard (Snow Bowl).
I remember that game. I was like, -40 years old.
What about '95 Purdue?
I sat behind the south end zone. Holy shit, that was brutal weather. My cap froze to my hair.

Meanwhile, Alabama dance team......lots of 8's and 9's in that section.
The make up is way too much for me though. Tennessee girls are prettier btw.
Ahem. Billy Bob disagrees.
"They will meet a dastardly fate here for that! There isn't a Michigan Man who wouldn't like go out and scalp those Buckeyes right now."
so is it just first team to miss a fg loses? I can't see either team scoring a td
10 mgopoints says bama wins in OT, their offense seems to be more consistent. If you say that about a 6-6 tie.
I'll put up 5 Borges Bucks that LSU wins
I hate Saban, would like to see LSU win.
dick move by tyrann Are he and Tom Gholston friends?
