I'm leaving this as a Gator Bowl thread specifically. Not sure the plan on the CiL either. I think too many of us are at the game.
Just heard on gameday that 6 starters on MSU have the stomach bug!
We could probably reach that in a quarter. Speaking of which, if people want to start new threads by quarter, I wouldn't be opposed to that. Having to load 300 comments per page is annoying enough, much less flipping through pages of commets within a thread.
How are we ever going to achieve it if we don't even try.
Though I doubt it would anyway. There have been road games in the past without the Liveblog, and they haven't had near that many.
Approaching the stadium. Let's get fired up!
Is to be the man that Fred Jackson thinks I am
All the Michigan duds are in full dress (including the bright Maize pants) and we're headed to a friends house to watch all the games.
The DVR is set so I can enjoy the Meeeeechigan Victory all over again.
The good news is the SEC East is 0-3 in bowl games now. Three of their wins were against the SEC East and four were against non-aq opponents.
So there is that.
Didn't drink last night (except for a couple of beers in the family Monopoly clusterfuck), and so it is on for today.
Let's Go Blue!!!!!!!
#1 rule in life: Never, ever, under any circumstances, play Monopoly with family.
Best case scenario you spend 4 hours pushing a hat around a board. Worst case scenario someone ends up in the ER or divorced.
Is what makes Monopoly so much fun.
Excuse me sir, how did you end up with thirty plastic horses lodged in your trachea?
The little wooden blocks had some chucking weight to them.
My wife was who wanted to play, which is odd because she's the one who complains about my domineering, control-freak personality during the game. I got bankrupted first, and so I think everyone else was pretty happy. The only flare-up involving me was when I got chided for taking too "long" trying to swindle Marvin Gardens from my son.
Let's Go Blue!
M GO BLUE BABY!
Is there enough demand for a CoverItLive? If so I'm happy to set one up if we don't get an official one from the blog.
No CiL? MgoBoard when Brian returns:
I love this team. I care more about the success of these players than I think I ever did under Carr. I don't know what it is. I still cared a lot about them then too. I think it's the tribulations of the past 3 years that make you realize that you really are a fan of the team and not of just winning. I don't take Michigan Football for granted like I used to. Anyways, leave it all on the field gentlemen. GO BLUE!
Ditto. There are more billion watt smiles on this team than I've ever seen. Love these guys regardless of what happens.
Met Gallon's fiancé, she's adorable, and says Gallon playing QB is real and a protection for DG's redshirt. He's excited and wants to go in. He's practicing at QB in the warm-ups. Was going to pick up her chicken strips, but thought this might be a violation. s/ sort of
Fitz is also running as 3rd string back
The cowbells are cop-out from a lazy fan base unwilling to cheer on their own. But they're nice people
can we please have a liveblog? I'm sitting many thousands of miles away with my hopes hinging on any stream I can find...
But if you want to post it here, I'll see what I can do. Though this is pretty close to the top.
Last minute front page Liveblog.
Miss. St. may be weakened by the tummy aches.
Just reported: stomach "bug" with MSU's team. Six starters affected.
Everyone on Gameday picked us to win.
Not sure if that's good or bad.
Please God no Matt Millen. Please!
that is all...
And I'm already tired of the cowbells.
I've found a stream. Should show the game *fingers crossed* http://www.channelsurfing.net/watch-espn2.html
Here we go!
Lets Go Blue!
as last time we won a bowl game. That's gotta be good, right??!!
O LETS DO IT
Fitz is actually playing!
Beautiful first drive!
Denard is good.
Things going well...
with missed tackles?
ARGH I am not sure what this defensive scheme is built to do. The 3rd and 11 throw had the receiver 1 on 1 and the corner providing a 10 yard cushion. Then again I have never played organized football.
I saw that matcup and before the snap I thought. Ok yup. However our boys came to play.
Another note, they are HELPING us by giving us touchbacks. Heh.
Can we just tear that reverse out of the playbook? That's happened more than once. AND GOD DAMN IT SHIT BLOCKED
to be the most god-awful annoying thing ever?
D stepped up big there...
Nice job D!
Denard is fucking playing incredibly right now.
Martavious you SOB!
That first quarter was fabulous. Cmon Defense step it up!
that was the most points scored in the 1st quarter of a Gator Bowl.
wow! Change it up coach, it's not working.
This defense angers me.
Rofl offside defense
Gee Golly gee whiz
Perfectly fitting ending .
This defense, makes my head hurt.
Halftime post. My wife is even shocked by how poorly Michigan is doing.
She has concluded the RichRod is out.
Herbie on the ESPN show just said it was time for RR to go and she said "Yes". An Ashleys, ABC, and main street dinner A2 alum with mninimal interest in the games other than the tailgating and show and band is done with him.
As poorly as the tackling and coverage have been, I think the 10 man defense TD is really a direct management failure, as is not manging the Tate class issues. It isn't a difference of style, or a new scheme, or a transition. Those are direct failures of leadership and management.
The Cap 1 Bowl, and the Michigan Stage fans can watch this one. We'd all be happier.
Coach Robinson, got my e-mail
