I know some people actually like a thread more than the liveblog so here it is.
So far I love the michigan helmets, and Love the throwback head ref hat lol.
we are lookin suspect so far
Also worse thing no names on jersey, so Musburger doesn't know whose who. He even confused The Michigan offense for the Notre Dame Offense
Seriously though, Mich D started off slow against WMU too, and look what happened
Also suprised no Fitz on first or 2nd drive so far
Fitz is hurt. Doubtful for the game
Someone just pulled a hammy who was the gunner?
Where's the fucking energy?
Who just got hurt on the punt?
Talbott I believe
On twitter Ace was saying Fitz didn't warm up, so he might not be playing tonight.
Gah, Denard could have run for a first down on that checkdown to Smith. He's getting time in the pocket, just checking down way too quickly.
This is way to quiet ... This is like going to church I dont hearr any noise from 115,000 im pissed
We need to roll Denard out on a run/pass option
The future may be bright under Hoke, but I think this season may be worse.
and easy schedule, Michigan should win 8 games easily
it's really fucking easy. No reason for Michigan not to win less than 8 games. Big 10 is down big time. A lot of winnable games with the exception of Nebraska(who is already down to Fresno State).
Jesus we're showing blitz way too early
when the offense sees the blitz coming the defense needs to get out of the blitz
But where is the coverage
I feel like breaking shit
Punched a wall
Defense is getting lit up
We r fucked
This crowd really is pissin me off get fuckin LOUD
:::cracks another beer:::
Every time I hear "Tommy" I imagine their QB as like an 11 year old kid
Seriously, we are just telegraphing our blitzes way too early, AND not checking out of it when Rees checks out of the play after recognizing it.
We look soft and inferior
My liver can't take another fucking year of this shitty ass defense.
Im bout ready to call it quits ....
Wow that was easy
OMG can we PLEASE check out of a blitz
Rees is 8-8. 14-nil.
Don't stop believing.
Could've drove a truck through that hole...
God..........Help us. They are making this look too easy. Keep drinking!!
This needs to be a sign to hoke that we need to take 2 more DT in this recruiting class
If we dont score here its going to get ugly
Can we at least compete?
Is a genius!!!!!!!
Martin better be hurt because he got his ass whooped
Keep the blitz coming but disguise it better and every once and a while show blitz and drop back or zone blitz. This is pathetic.
This is embarrassing....please someone end the pain!! All the hype and no backing it up....42-7 final
He should have freakin ran
This is ugly!!!!!!!!!!
Not looking good so far, but this is kind of what I expected. Rees is not going to be perfect, and we'll see what happens once he gets hit a couple of times. Mattison, though, needs to stop sending the blitz each time - they aren't getting there and they need to make the passes a little tougher.
Crowd is so silent. The shit is depressing. I went to Ohio's game today with my dad hes a huge Ohio State fan and they were going nuts!!! To silent Hate this shit.
Just made my first boilermaker of the night
Nice fucking throw...ball security problems, no defense, 2010 all over again...
2010? try 2008
Is he hurt? Oh noes.....there's a int.
FUCK FUCK interception
That was an AWFUL pass...DAMN IT
if we don't get a stop we're done
How 'bout them Tigers?
He didn't even look at where he was throwing to. Looks like the same ol BS.
And were right back in it. Cmon guys
You have to get him moving.
Where is talent development?
I can at least take an INT on a sailed pass. That was... I don't even what the fuck that was..
No Fitz + No Cam + No Woolfolk = No Win
I think Jake Ryan is our best LB in the last 4 years
The crowd is just making it to easy for him to audible
I'm feeling Mattinson breaking out the teddy bear soon
Dammit! That pick would have been nice.
Ticket increase not worth it.
Whoa, a 3 and out!
Can't allow them to score.
Wow Defense, our guys can be coached
I liked what I saw from the D on that 3 and out .
Watch the fake punt
I hope they Watch the fake
Rees is crap under pressure
especially when he is not tipped before the snap on where the pressure is coming from.
of the formation by nd. We are showing are blitz to early....
Let Shoelace run wild. Fuck it!
Is truly gone!
these commercials suck!
We have to stretch the field they are crowding the line ... Someone go deep even if you dont complete it just let them know u will do it
of the game right here. If we can march down and get a score we steal momentum back.
This could end up a nightmare day for Big Ten. Minn, Pur, Iowa, PSU lost. Mich, Ind. losing, Nebraska losing 17-14 at half to Fresno.
is looking good!!!!(trying to stay positive)
where the hell did roy learn to catch a football
not Roys fault. Too high...too hot
balls like that should have been attempted with a diamond hand, not an over the shoulder attempt
We traded a chance to score any second for what?
A defense that should be good in 2 years.
This is brutal. Sadly, I think Stonum would have gotten to the pass intended for Hemingway. We have to get it together.
A 3 and out here would be huge
Woolfolk is made of fucking glass.
Dude we weren't scoring much against the good teams last year...
In 35 call when we can a first down. Pathetic.
This team will get stronger as the game goes on. The new staff is able to make adjustments. Also, I just realized that when Hoke points, three fingers point back at him tripling the power of his finger during future uses.
Watching Floyd play, I gotta say the outcome of the Brian Kelly discipline ultimatum of him playing all the games or not at all, was as predictable as water being wet.
Rich Rod ran this program into the ground. I'm still liking our new coaching staff but wow we do no have the personell to match up.
Now there we go!
Here we go...
kovacs is gonna be all big ten at this rate
RB, WR and DT .........Great TD
fuck yea nice play
TD number 21!!!!!!
Hahaha Anshan, ow I may have just pulled a muscle celebrating!
Junior is a stud!
Nice touchdown by Desmond Howard.
Where is a jerseys lapel?
holy shit a high extra point
I called they need to go deep man coverage they are playing to many in the box..Hopefully Borges noticed that and will start taking shots
...for Koger in the seam.
we should be settle down now.
Special teams haven't been half bad tonight
Time for another defensive stop. Let's get our offense back on the field and at least tie this thing by half
Why are we dropping Martin
Quit your bitching about the defensive calls and alignments
Have another drink Floyd. Nice that taking 200$ at a charity event gets u suspended and unknown amount of time but 2 DUIs in 2 years you miss 1 game. Sad.
Nope, that was a good catch.
spot not so sure.
We cannot stop their WRs. Just can't.
Michigan forcing turnovers!
YES!!!!!! This is the big difference this year!!!
Yeah, It helped Sparty out ALOT last year.
Blake Countess!!! yess
espn3 cant handle the stream, need moar bandwidth. I jumped from quality 4 to 1.
Glad I could provide that jinx.
Cmon O the D is steppin up!
how many colors of the rainbow has kellys face been?
WEll, they do nothing with that opportunity.
Robinson's throws are killing me
I wouldn't mind seeing a little Devin
Can't get much more open, gotta put that on the big block M!
Please run denard!
Quit Fucking dropping Martin!
We are lucky to only be down 10. Getting killed in the trenches
We are lucky to only be down 10. Getting killed in the trenches
Well atleast Hoke was honest about our run defense
...a year makes with our offense. Dynamic versus stagnant. I don't think the Irish defense is that much better than last year...
Borges was handed the keys to a Ferrari and he's driving it like a Taurus.
I'm in the student section. They don't make undergrads like they used to. It's hard to get these kids to even jingle their keys. Half of them are piss faced drunk and can't stand up straight. Someone needs to teach these kids its "happily buzzed" before the game and "shitfaced drunk" after.
It's all about the first two drives in the second half. We stop them and get points and we get confidence while Mount Kelly blows its damn top. We're clawing our way back.
It's not their fault... their not used to night games!
First of all, that went pretty bad, and we are still in it.
Borges has to frankly let Denard run the read option more, and hope he can tally up some big plays. It comes down to this: can he make adjustments the way Mattison has?
Our defense has improved, and if it plays the way it played the last four drives or so, then we have a chance.
That said...ND is beating us in virtually every facet of the game. Our coaches have to change it up some.
Has Fitz even played?
If Al Borges is such a great offensive coordinator why was he at San Diego State at such a point in his career? This is a serious question, not a cynical one, I have wondered for a while now but all of a sudden feel compelled to ask.
It pains me to admit this but you might be right about Denard, I have been nervous about this game since last week's UFR .
read posts before you ask questions
Is it just me or does the Leprechaun look like he's from Jersey shore? I hope I'm not late to the party on this one.
All you need to know about how the first half is going: Denard is 2-9, 48 yds. You take away the one 43 yard toss-up to Hemingway, and he has thrown for 8 yards. That is not a mis-print, folks. Total yards is 268 to 90. Notre Dame's defense isn't THAT good. Here's hoping for some life in the 2nd half...
He fielded that punt on his knee - doesn't that mean he's down?
At least there's a new stadium record.
I love it when 113,000+ watch us get our ass kicked.
Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. This is fuckin ridiculous. Damn it
Don't worry, ND will turn it over here
Please keep making predictions. You sir, are golden
ND loves to turn the football over
The defense is making plays but the offense just cant do anything!!!
Koger baby get him involved more!
What the fuck?
I really want to see a little Devin....
Timing route gone bad!
Can we see a little bit of Devin please?
same crap different coaches
Seems that Mattison is trying to trick ND (imagine that), by "telegraphing" a blitz to have Rees audible and getting the opposite side of the D line to bear down and catch the running back. Nice to see the Defense making changes during the game.
Al Borges is making pull my hair out!!!
It's not over, but Michigan needs points fast.
get ready for a long ass year
fuckity fuck fuck
Keep the Hoke alive!!!!
It's 2 games, and denard isn't solely to blame, but dude can't throw.
And seems that the wr can't catch! Not all the QB fault!
The experiment needs to end and put him there. Peeps need to stop trying to fit a square peg into a fast round hole.
Our D is just as bad as last year and our O is significantly worse.
no offense but the d is worlds better than last year. I don't automatically assume the opponent is gonna score when they have the ball. Or that it is a guarantee that every 3rd and long is converted
OK they're only marginally better. They get more pressure and force more turnovers, but they've given up over 400 yards.
Kovacs (although he's awesome), Brink, Heineger (sp), Van Slyke. Even Alabama would have trouble with 4 walk-ons playing very regularly.
retarded. D has kept them in the game
We needed that!!
AT THE 1
Why wouldn't you have a play ready to go?
...and we are still in it?
Holy "trick play", Batman.
Meant to be, denard in the endzone...
May you see the field again
*never see the field again
...if they are going spread for the rest of the game. Thats the only way we win. Start looking for Koger & the fullback in the seams and along the sidelines...
Let's go BLUUUUUE!
Way to step up Hawthorne!
For sure 2 great plays
Michigan scrimmages from the 50.
I think #7 is showing he's a player
gives up that first down and more
Now go to Koger in the seam
We got a ball game!
fade to shortest guy? I'll take it
Bounce back baby!!
Made it a game
Jeremy has improved so so so so much. Im so hyped about this kid,
Brandin Hawthorne is playing a game
hawthorne starter for sure
Football gods on our side!!
This here is a good game. Time to #freedenard and close it out for Blue.
YES YES YES YES YES!!!
[quote]RT @Matt_HayesSN: Fifth turnover for ND inside the opponent 5 this season. unreal.[/quote]
Justice for the BS PI call. Mich gets 15 for ND roughing the passer
Junior's got a little of Desmond's magic tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
thats what happened when you keep throwing jump balls
Why Why why? damnit you can't keep going to that come on
Let's play DE-FENCE
lets go boys. lets make it 3 straight wins in the final minute
a punt return that hasnt happened since odoms returned for a td against purdue 2 years ago
Denard's HANDS from this point out!!!!!!
accuracy is crap...he needs a lot of work
fuck yea td
Michigan leads for the first time tonight!
this ride has just started...
FUCK YEAH LET'S PLAY SOME D
HELL YEAH. LETS GO D!!!!!!
Alright D you got this!!!!!!!!!
This is where Hoke needs to earn his money
Lets send nd home with a loss boys!
Thank god for the suicide plays made by the Shamrocks
kick coverage is atrocious...I can't wait for Hagerup to come back he should definitley help it out
Why do the refs insist on calling bullshit penalties
Okay I'm a homer too, but how was that not a penalty?
SPoke too soon. TD ND.
allowed them to score....DAMMIT
Fucking TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF!! How the fuck is this shit still going on!
WOW this GAME
oh my god
OH MY GOD
what a game!!!!!!!
I do believe there will be no articles this week about being disappointed in drob
I WILL NEVER FORGET THIS
That's where Roundtree has been this entire game!
Take that sparty little giants play!
True Blue always bounce back!!!
Better make some improvements, but if feels good to win! Hail to the victors baby!
Denard torch their d AGAIN!!!!!
TO HELL WITH NOTRE DAME!!!!
That was unFUCKINGbelievable!!!
Absolutely amazing. I can't believe what I just witnessed. That was the most incredible game ever. We own ND.
Can some say fighting BiTCHES of Notre Dame!!! Wish I could have been there!! Greatest game I've ever seen
One of the best games I ever seen!!! Period
