Ok, if we don't beat Iowa this year, then I think we're cursed
Gameday/Noon Games Open Thread
Right now NW has 201 yards on the ground, and 25 through the air. Michigan might not have to pass on a single play against Iowa.
ESPN2 is showing something worse than the Lattimore injury. It's Iowa football.

That Marcus Lattimore injury was one of the worst I've ever seen. I feel for the guy. But wow. Not for the weak stomached
I didn't see it but it sounds like it was incredibly painful. In a situation like that, can they just give the guy a shot of morphine (or an equivalent) on the sidelines? I hate the thought of someone having to endure that.
Good question. The morphine/analgesic would have to be administered/signed off by a Doctor I assume, but if they have it and Dr. is present, I would like to think so. Like you, I sure hope so too; though I wonder if the shock is keeping any pain away, for now.
it's unusual for us to have morphine at a game. toradol is much more common and sometimes used. first and foremost if the knee is dislocated, it needs to be reduced asap. as stated before, the popliteal artery is at risk. usually after the knee is reduced, the pain is much more tolerable. then we place the knee in an immobilizer and apply ice. players usually players do not require an injection of pain medicine. if xrays are available they are taken.
Cool. I know you're responding to the above but thanks for the insight!
Hopefully they keep their foot on the gas to close this one out.
I'm kind of afraid to check out Black Heart Gold Pants. I don't want to see utter insanity
Another interesting note, Kyle Prater only has 7 receptions for 41 yards on the year. Not as impactful for NW as originally expected I'd say.
Iowa....LOL, wow just plain pathetic. Meanwhile Ferentz continues to take that huge paycheck.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAWKEYES. WE ARE GOING TO ABSOLUTELY KILL THAT TEAM.
It's going to be awesome.
Dear Lord, what happened to Texas, and how are they even ranked right now? Maybe Mac Brown just lost his drive or something.
There are no tires left to burn in Iowa. It's just smoldering rubber.
That Marcus Lattimore injury reminds me of Tyrone Prothro.. in every way. Tyrone still has a limp to this day, hopefully its not as bad at all. Hope he makes a Willis Mgahee type recovery.
AIEOHG (angry Iowa entire offense hating god)
Looking across the landscape of the B1G, there is NO excuse for Michigan to not go to the Rose Bowl this year. Going 11-2 and winning a BCS bowl last year was a failure to Hoke... If we don't win the B1G this year, definitely a failure.
very true, but winning tonight is a tall order to fill. it can absolutely be done, but hoke and co. need to bring their a-game. nebraska is a different animal at home.
As it should have been, the pass is incomplete, so yet again, Iowa has to punt it away at their own peril. An end-over-end punt takes a couple bounces and is not returned. I am guessing they would rather not add a punt return for a TD to the list of things that went wrong.
Wow. Iowa has Gaglione down now. They seem to be a few injuries away from literally playing shorthanded rather than figuratively.
Starting to look like Iowa could be a great game for our backs to finally get on track running the ball this year. It would be great having some balance going into Columbus.
Another Ash pick. Wow.
Thought he'd try the old Tebow jump screen. He's not Tebow, he should probably set his feet.
I've been saying it all year but why have they been given the benefit of the doubt? They're awful.
Agree. After the Red River Rivalry debacle I can't believe anybody still talks about them.
I'd like OU to beat ND the same way today though.
My guess is it's called the Longhorn Network and/or just being Texas. But I would also like to see OU give ND a Texas-esque beatdown and finally shut Lou Holtz up.
Even with that TD by Iowa on a drive that seemed to take about a month, there's nothing in the stats that says Northwestern can't hang onto the lead, right? Right?
I said the play when Northwestern didn't get the 4th and 3 would be the turning point. I stand by that. This is where Northwestern blows the lead...again.
I read that last sentence in Valenti rant voice.
"When a team plays Northwestern, no deficit is too great to overcome. This is a fundamental law of football."
Question: if Iowa is THIS bad, how much do you play Denard if we're still in the driver's seat for the Legends Division with The Game the following week?
Because he's the starting QB and it will be senior day. Also, this is Michigan fergodsakes.
I think you might have accidentally deleted part of your response...? I'm in no way saying that he should not play at all. However, I do think that you need to have some sort of leash on him to keep him healthy. I'd anticipate that we'd limit his carries that week anyway, if we can. Say we're up 3-4 TDs. I'd probably send him out there to "start" a drive and sub him out for Bellomy (so he gets the applause that he deserves). In the scope of the season, we need him 100% against Ohio State.
Northwestern keys to the 4th quarter:
- Do not implode
- Employ the rushing version of the tradition Penn State offense and take eons off the clock
EDIT: That was an awfully timed turnover by Northwestern. They were in a position to score and force Vandenberg to channel his inner Geno Smith...wait, what?
I cannot even fathom the meltdown that will occur on shaggybevo if Texas loses this game
What channel is that game on?
For me, it's on Fox sports detroit
Thanks. I never want to miss a chance to see Texas lose.
On fox sports... At least in Ohio (Cincinnati Area)
Sorry this is off topic but I am in Vancouver, BC for the next two weeks and was wondering if anyone knew of a Michigan Bar. ESPN2 is not available where I'm staying.
Unfortnately for Iowa the lead got too big, NW will be fine. Even if Iowa takes this down the field and scores, it'll take them 7 minutes to do so
Never underestimate the power of northwestern to blow leads
Iowa d looked terrible in the first half. If colter can run all over them, denard shouldn't have a problem when we play them
nice to see Iowa establishing the run down 18 with 7 mins to go....
I think they are attempting to say that they could have done this all game, if they wanted, and if they didn't have a reason to be deathly afraid of using running backs. In any case, it's generally easier than watching Vandenberg throw.
At this very moment, I want nothing more than a Kansas win.
Did she just say, "play cock"
