Let's get it on
The Game Open Thread
Play like you belong at the University of Michigan today (coaches, players, everyone). Please. Go Blue. Fuck Urban Meyer. Fuck Ohio. God Bless
Checking in from Korea, 2am Sunday. Woke up just to feel the pain. But this year, I didn't bother to make it a special early morning game with my son. I think it better that he just miss this one.
Michigan has this. Just believe baby.
HERE. WE. GO.
your maths skills leave something to be desired. It is disappointing to see the red, but it's nowhere near 50%.
If he is talking about people on the field, he isn't as wrong...
Anyone have a working stream?
Student section looking like shit is my first thought
Hoping they are still filing in
If we are all fire Borges, then can we fire the students who don't show up for the kickoff if MICHIGAN / OHIO STATE. F'n disgrace.
cOuld someone please provide a live stream for The Game?
Holy shit...sea of red on the opening shot.
Fucking fair weather fans.
Some damn how, some way- let us pull this fucking game out!
not great, but working:
if someone finds a better one, please post.
Can't wait to come read this thread over later! GO BLUE.
best stream links anyone? Post the good ones.
There is always hope. ALWAYS. Until there is no more. The no more is not yet. NOT YET.
FUCK. THIS. SHIT. UP.
Embarrassing how many Buckeye fans are there. Disappointed in our fans
I'm missing my first OSU home game since 1985. My wife's dad died on Wednesday so we're sitting this one out. I tried to give them away to the guys in my tailgate and nobody wanted them. So four empty seats for us.
Not fair weathered - just not able to make the trip from Cleveland today.
You could have given them away to me
I wish I had.
So much fucking red. So god damn embarrasing
There would be more.
If so get off MGOBlog and cheer for the good guys. If not STFU!!!
And all the apathy dissappeared with that kick in the air. Emotions literally roared back. Long road ahead, but Beat Ohio!
Crowd noise sounds weird. It sounds like ABC has it super muted
Interested. I thought it sounded loud
Maybe my TV is just goofy but the announcers voices compared to the crowd noise sounds a lot different than Im used to
Loud for me.
This defense needs to be stout today
I like the aggression so far. Hope they keep it up.
Damnit OSU ST. Why can't you guys suck at something?! Anything!
that'll be a touchback. his knee was in the endzone when he finally downed it
I was thinking too. We should start on the 20
Or is this a different rule than the NFL?
Different rule than NFL. As long as the ball doesn't cross the line you're good.
I don't think it really matters either way. Regardless NFL or college I don't think you can have any part of your body in the endzone when it is finally downed.
I thought it's where the ball is... Could be wrong. NFL the body can't touch
Only the ball matters. Did it break the plane?
Doesn't matter. It's if the ball got to the plane
The crowd sounds much more excited than I am.
Don't get conservative here.
That's gotta be a touchback right?
Kyle Kalis should be really fired up for this game today
I've been wondering where the PA comeback's have been for a while. Those were money in the bank everytime last year
Get on your horse Gallon!
Why wasn't he calling these plays weeks ago?
A 3 and in to start
it's seems Gallon never scores on those catch and long runs
The one which we didn't get, they bombed a TD and recovered the onside kick? God Damn. Why did I think of and write this?
Yes! I was a little worried when JG didn't score, I will admit
Me too I was thinking here comes three run straight up the middle for nothing :)
Pistol= Option everytime. Great start
Fuck YOU Ohio.
Emotional investment exceeded
You are seriously going to use one drive to suggest Borges is a great coach?
1) This isn't the time for that and a series of decent playcalling doesn't change the shitshow that this season has been. He's coaching for a 700K job -- I'd get expect him to go all out.
2) remember last year when he looked like a genius in the first half?
Give him eleventy-billion years and he still wouldn't get it done.
AND WE SCORED ON OFFENSE!!!!!!!!!
WITH A 99 YARD TD DRIVE!!!!!?!?!!!
WHAT IS HAPPENING
The question is, does Borges go back into his shell as usual?
Well that makes me smile.
If we're going to win, this is how we're going to do it . . . stubborn D, through the air to Gallon, Funchess, and Dileo, and on the feet of Devin Gardner.
I think we will see Al pull out all the stops today. Like what I've seen so far
Can't start better that that. Go Blue!
Keep it up!!
I don't do coronations.
I want all the emos around here to have to eat their words lately. Go Blue.
Me too Timmmaaay. And I'm one of them.
Defense doing a good job to contain Braxton Miller so far. Keep it up boys.
Just read the OP for the first time and all I have to say is, "Mom, I honestly thought I was gonna be raped for a second. He had the craziest look in his eyes. And at one point he said, 'Lets get it on.'"
The OP is so not a raper.
Was an awesome play call. Wow.
These open receivers are worrying.
Tighten up in coverage boys!
Great throw. Great catch. Shittier coverage. Fuck
Why do the coaches hate Jarrod Wilson so much?
Instead of Wilson?
Cliche as it sounds, sixty minute game and they're not some pushover. They'll get theirs, let's just hope we get more of ours.
Our secondary needs Peppers badly.
Josh Furman with the WHOOPS.
Pretty bad, that.
I still cannot understand why Furman took Jarrod's spot. Furman has been clearly worse
They give up long bombs to Ohio every year. WTF is Furman even doing out there. There's a reason he hasn't sniffed the field for 4 years
Wow. Just wow.
Does Furman have nude photos of Hoke and Mattison? No reason he should be playing.
Furman just got burned
I do not get it man.. why is josh Furman on the field?
You beat me to it. He has never been a good player at Michigan.
Great pass, better catch but lack of QB pressure.
They used 7 on the line.
Why is Furman out there? Is someone hurt?
Only we rush 4 an have wide open revivers behind our coverage. Terrible. Might as well bring the house.
I screamed "where's the safety?!?!" and then I saw it was Furman in the replay.
Maybe he sits?
Well that sucks.
Shouldn't 3rd and long be automatic blitz to make him make a quick throw?
Was much hope. Just a fool's hope.
That was about the fourth time OSU has had a receiver open. This was just the first time he connected. If I'm OSU, I'm throwing more. We rarely get a pass rush.
Flag down of course
Why!?!?!?!?!!! So fucking stupid!!!!!!
These are the type of flags that make people think someone is paid off.
I'm sure there are good reasons Furman is playing. Playing good defensively is not one of them sadly.
Just take an AK and blow off our foot -- wht not?
Can't win when we actually make plays and shoot ourselves in the foot
not sure why he is in the game
That's a bs call.
That's embarrassingly bad officiating. Holy shit bad.
Evidently pancakes are now holds?
He didn't even hold... Ohio player drug him down to make it look like a hold. Garbage
How do we get robbed at the House?
He had his hands inside and drove him back.... wtf..
Al wasnt quite ready to call a play?
That penalty might be the key to the game. We'd have been at their 5 and looking to score.
Big Ten refs clearly want Ohio in the MNC
Lewan hurt, that is clearly what is needed...
The one time Norfleet gets a great kickoff. Unbelievable.
Looks like they know what we are running
Nice completion to Drew Welker.
That was one of the best plays Devin has made all year. He stayed in the pocket with his eyes down field.
we are playing a WHOLE lot better so far
GET SOMMEEEEEEEEEE UHGGGHHHHHHHH
Two touchdowns in one quarter? Who is really calling the plays today?
Al is letting him guest coach
If our defense can hold up...
Fuck you Ohio.
The O line is playing VERY VERY good so far
And this is a dream? Correct? If so, where is the naked supermodel?
Wile is scaring me with these PATs.
Where as this all year. No joke, I want to know
Borges saved an entire playbook for today.
we have played terrible all year ...just to shock the world in this game
We're undefeated when Fitz scores a TD.
Damn......Does this feel like the Capital Bowl 2007 or what?
71 with a hold on Gedeon.
Defense fucking failing us big time. We won't win a shoutout
Yeeaahhhhh....defense is going to need to play today too
When the announcer says "We'll this play has Miller written all over it" and your defense has no idea, that is a problem.
Because Mattison isn't immune to being stupid. Apparently he switched with Borges today.
Our safeties are killing us. Avery wasn't even close.
Put in Morris!
Borges switched brains this morning
And not show his lack of speed.
So, it looks like it's up to Michigan's offense to win this game.
No ... Not a shootout. Tighten up D.
Nice of the defense to not show up today. How the fuck do we have nobody in the middle I the field?
DAMN DAMN DAMN
Just why are these guys playing?
I wonder if they're thinking of not roaring safeties now? Haha
Norfleet looks like the Juggernaut. His helmet looks too big for his body hahaha.
Someone post a comparison picture.
GET JARROD WILSON AND THOMAS GORDON ON THE FIELD.
At the SAME TIME.
I LIKE BUTT
Can they just let the game end now?
The rest of the season look even more retarded
Borges is a fucking genius!
dont start this yet ..its only the 1st quarter
I just do not get why Michigan was not using this offense all year. These plays would have kept teams from sending the house after Devin.
What play haven't you seen before?
Yup. The world we live in is fun
WE are playing great so far on offense
Hate to say it but so far Al Borges has called a masterful game. Lets see if he can do it for 4 quarters. Defense has to step it up. Oh the irony
Does that now double our YTD screen total?
Borges is literally trying everything. He knows his time is coming...
They fell for the throwback??
This ish cray
I still think we are doomed, once Ohio State adjusts to the UM offense, Borges will be unable to adjust.
Same here. But at least we have scored TWO count em TWO legitimate touchdowns today.
Yup and Michigan can do nothing to stop the Buckeyes.
Extend Borges!!! Infinity years and $Texas
Were we just sandbagging all year?
I know the Ohio game means everything, but this is ridiculous.
So let me get this straight. The game is basically looking like a freaking shootout and Borges is holding his own? And Mattison is getting used?
Am I in opposite world? Am I now mGrowYoung? Are burritos good for me? Can I keep drinking without stopping.
Burritos are always good
Burritos were good for you. Life is cruel
2008 Capital One Bowl-esque 1st quarter.
Who are those guys?
Gawd if we win this will Borges stay? That's horrifying.
To be fair ... OSU is a much better offensive than defensive team but hope that our defense can have a better day than the Indiana game.
we won't score another point, much less gain first downs, after halftime......it's the Al BOREges plan of action
I agree that the key will be to see how the second half is played. We have been historically bad in adjusting to the way opposing teams adjust to us.
I came in expecting a blowout. . . My expectations were low and my defensive guard was up. Now I'm feeling emotionaly vulnerable again . . .
Devin Funchess makes me hard. Sorry for the weirdness
Fuck yeah Funchess!
Fuck yeah! Fuck yeah! I'm swearing out of fucking happiness!
we are playing freasking AMAZING
What is life right now???
Funchess!! I've never seen a better stick on the landing ... Never broke stride
Hey defense. Stop pooping out there
Who ARE these guys?!??
Funchess is insane. The offense is rolling.
Kinda of funny how when the blocking is superb, the offense seems to really take off, isn't it?
Agreed. But why is the blocking "taking off"? What changed?
Either way this is wonderful.
We've just been executing better. It's that simple. Guys are picking up the proper assignments and winning at the point of attack.
Sometimes it's that simple.
No, it is kinda funny how the screen game keeps other teams from using nine man boxes and sending a blitz every play. The offensive line has pressure taken off of them by the playcalling that Borges refused to use all year for some reason, until today.
We've been using the screen game all year in case you haven't been paying attention (You haven't, I know).
Kind of funny how actually making open field blocks in the screen game opens up the screen game.
I'm so happy with our offense - individual players making great play after great play.
But, I'm just so confused with what I'm seeing.
Where has this been all year?
It is pissing me off we could have been way better this year if Al opened this offense up
And 75% of the forum was screaming for it for weeks.
Using screens to set up other plays. Who would have ever thought this style of offense would work? Oh, everyone but Borges until today.
We haven't been throwing lots of screens? Really. TIL.
Let's go BLUE!!!!!!! Let's go D!!!!!
If we stop giving up huge plays (i.e. put Gordon and Wilson in forever).....I'm going to get my hopes up
The O line is giving time Devin is making proper reads... just A great day
Come on Mattison - let's force a turnover here!!! Offense is holding up their end, surprisingly!
Exactly. The short routes gives the line just enough time to not fuck everything up. and gives our receivers a chance in the open field to make plays. a la Devin Funchess, Jake Butt, JG.
Props to the kids on offense today. Oline is in beast mode.
Hell yeah, fucking right!
Crap, not u.
Forget the past. Go Blue!
Glad you sold your tickets still???? Go Blue!!
Is Borges saving his job?
No, but this will screw up the dudes word count and may be a reverse jinx.
Willis just threw a punch
I LOVE it!!
Ohio #1 took a flat out swing.
Wow...guess they werent expecting us to show up either.
what just happened? it looked like an all out brawl.
#1 for Ohio is gone. Maybe Clark for us
There should be multiple Buckeyes ejected for throwing punches.
I wanna see Brady get in there and beast Urban
FUCK OHIO STATE
al finally woke up and left constraints of his and hokes stale predictable O, getting creative and actually matching personnel and abilities with calls / scheme....praise the lord, hopefully he doesnt drink the spiked kool aid at halftime. front 4 desparately needs to bow up and make plays in run game....defeat blocks and dont let your LBs get smothered. O finally strings some plays and drives together, safeties and DL need to take care of business. even with OSU making calls at the line, mattison will still have the right call on in 8/10 situations.....gotta execute the call and win 1on1's
Wilson is gone...
Loved seeing Dymonte Thomas out there in the OSU bench's face. We win out on that brawl because Wilson is gone
Hall is going to get suspended.
we got the best of this, so that's good.
Fuck you fat piece of shit.
I love that Michigan is fired up but let's use our head the rest of the day.
get a turnover
Middle fingers in the air! Stay classy fucking Ohio
the tension level just went up to full capacity. This is gonna be interesting
"This game just got a lot more interesting"
-My Wife (Alabama alum)
She have a sister?
To all the fairweather fans who sold thier tickets. A big F U from me
Oh yeah. Couldn't agree more.
JOE MOTHA FUCKIN BOLDEN!!! We are gonna win this shit!
I love football Xs and Os.
Furman is not good.
get FURMAN OUT THE GAME
Take Furman out!
I went over the 1000 MGoPoint total two years ago in the victory over USU.
I'm nearing 2000. Thinking ahead.
should not be in ...Where is WILSON
Hurt or at least in the dog house right?? Can't believe he wouldn't be out there....?
holy fucking HELL!!!!!!!!
This is looking like a real game
You stay classy, Maurice Hall. Might have ourselves an old-fashioned ballgame.
All you bitches who talked about not even watching... yeah.
Can we play the second half!? My only question
I wouldn't be opposed to just canceling the second half
And arrange some lightning to happen
Fuck yeah! I said make them bleed and they will crack! Urbz has the weak chin!
OK, I know the fight is over. but how awesome (and wrong, we would actualy *want* it to happen), but HOW AWESOME would it have been to see Hoke spring across the field and beat the shit our of Urban?
That would have been the best UM highlight since Woodson's MSU interception.
These boys going to make me cry they keep playing like this!
You can thank me for this guys. Fist OSU game I've missed since 85-team is obviously inspired due to my absence....
No seriously......your welcome.
Grammar police: you're.
That was the beer typing. Beer sucks at grammer.
Borges please do not let up
Where has this play calling been all year?
Good throw back call
Hey refs, how about calling a penalty on The team in white from time to time? K, thanks!
You do realize that they already kicked 2 of them out, right?
But deservedly and there was no penalty.
Hit 'em with a third big play.
A lot of people thought it was going to be a clubbing, but we've got a bat fight on our hands, gentlemen.
I don't want to punt this half..
