Congratulations to this group of young men who have overcome so much (in football terms at the least), and never quit! I am thrilled for them, they deserve it!
Hail to the PLAYERS!
Tate came in really clutch. But I jsut want to know the status of Denard. Other than that...
WERE GOING BOWLING BABY!!!!!!!!!!!! BOWL ELIGIBILITY SHFJHFPDUFHPADUIOFPOIDF!!!!!!!!!
Denard was one of the first players on the field jumping up and down. Hopefully the hand will recover but I feel good about Tate running this team.
not hand, Denard is fine
I'm really proud of our team and coaches. There were so many times when it felt like last year (if not last years game against Illinois), like the team was collapsing, like sloppiness and poor decision making were going to doom all of their strides once again. But they never gave up. Even with Denard out, and Tate fumbling his first play, the offense never gave up. Even after failing to diagnose a misdirection play for the third time, the defense never gave up. The team played their hearts out through three overtimes and it showed. They deserve this win more than any team I can remember. I'm proud that we got to share it with them too.
when Tate came in I was like:
"I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced."
And at the end I was like:
“These blast points — too accurate for sandpeople. Only imperial stormtroopers are so precise.”
Such a great game.
at the end I was like:
"The force is strong with this one."
fuckin texas bowl muthafucka!!!!!!!
No one gives a crap which one it is!!! I get to watch a meaningful college football game in December this year!!!!
being a dick. I am truly happy!!! Go Blue!!!
Your point total is amazing.
know what happened. I only had like 750 points in the middle of the day yesterday and I got an email saying I lost all of my points. Not really sure what happened. I don't even fucking care though. Go Blue and Thank you Mr. Forcier.
Did you perhaps refer to our agriculturally-inclined brethren to the West with a word that beings with "S," ends in "a," and has "partin" in the middle?
Look at my history. Just meaningless drivel. Oh well.
No quit in this team.
best thread I've ever seen!!
We are going BOWLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
my arteries hurt.
I'm only 24 and I feel like I was gonna have a heart attack...but it would be totally worth it! One of the best games I've ever been to! TOTAL BEDLAM!!! WOOOOOOOOOO!!1!!!!!111!!
Mike Martin came back in the 2nd half and played through injury. Shaw had a huge impact on the game late. BOWL GAME!
You can tell the impact he had in the 2nd half. Illinois was far less effective.
Did you see Barwis crying??? I think the tear was made of cement
It burned right through the turf and down to the center of the earth.
Saw Denard clapping after the game (on the field). No badages or wraps on either hand. Let's hope he's good for the Boilers.
But I didn't think our D played that bad. Compared to last week, I actually thought we would get stops at times.
This looked like a different defensive team (aside from the 65). A lot of stops, held them to a couple of field goals in the read zone... and the BIG STOP AT THE END.
They seemed to be more agressive and loose.
I have never been SO HAPPY with giving up 65 points in my life. HELL YES GO BLUE!!
Mike Martin- what a beast still playing and contributing even though he's obviously limited. Courtney Avery- making up for JT and then some. Tate stepping up and giving us what we need. Wide receivers- making it happen when it counted. ROY ROUNDTREE OH MY GOD. HURRAY EVERYONE PARTY TIME.
Junior was absolutely amazing in the OT's. Clutch clutch clutch.
Roundtree and Hemingway can each wear .5?
How about 1A and 1B?
Let this be the beginning of another 33 year bowl streak.
Did we ever find out what happened to Denard? Awesome play by Tate though.
Maybe (though I doubt it) this gives the RichRod haters a couple days off. I have never respected a group of Michigan players more for their perseverence in difficult circumstances. They could have given that game up...
Those who stay.
I'll take it, too. I'm not concerned about the RichRod haters. I've given up trying to reason with people who believe that Lloyd would have gone 9-3 with the '08 team (and that only poor coaching kept the '09 and '10 draft numbers low). No -- it's the moderates that interest me.
Happy drinks tonight instead of sad drinks!! Yay!!!!
Great win for the team. Right now, it doesn't matter that there were 65 points given up. All that matters is that they stopped those 2 at the end. Everyone left their hearts on the field, and I love them for it. Congrats, enjoy it, you guys definitely deserved to get a win.
I'm drunk, tired, and I pissed in my pants a bit during the game. Congrats players, drink an extra one tonight.
is the time that I love coming on this board the most. Great win today and BOWL ELIGIBLE!!!
Courtney Avery really stepped up today.
How about Ray's big stop? D got gouged, but I saw some positives. Not as many missed tackles today. Still beyond poor, but hey......they won.
Never give up! So happy for these kids and coaches. Ugly ugly win but just what we needed, a win.
Our D made some stops today, but everyone take some B-blockers to control your heart. The 4th quarter turnovers were dong punches to the max, but man did we fight back and earn this win.
I did all my chores for the last 3 days, I stood up at just the right times, and cheered and shouted words of encouragement to the TV at just the right times. I'm sure you guys did too, and with all that karma, we won! Oh yeah, and the players were awesome too!!
The way our receivers played today - any aspiring receiver would be inspired.
Here,s hoping to see Arnett under the block M banner!
Its actually just 'The Players' /s
AWESOME GAME. Give me some recruits!!!
Of course we're all exstatic that we are making a bowl game. Whheewww. But I'm at work and everyone is wondering why I am so happy just because we made a bowl game. That sucks cause we've stooped to that level. But this it, another streak started. Go Blue! Fuck these suckeye fans!
The UFR's for this game will take him forever!
Kudos to Avery, I thought he covered better than Floyd.
Cam Gordon at spur > Cam Gordon at FS
Roh at DE >> Roh at LB
Obi still sucks!
Fun game and many more heroes and goats, but I'm ready to celebrate a bit more.
Hah! I didn't think of that - he might want to farm them out to the same place that Groening and Fox ship out drawing the Simpsons...
The players stayed playing hard the whole way through. I am wore out from watching it, they must be exhausted.
Does Barwis work with the fans? Many of us were exhausted by the end.
Martin showed his heart getting back in the game.
Hemingway had an amazing RAC.
what a win! i am so emotionally invested in this team...the Wolverines! love em or leave em!
HOLY fuck finally... If we could of not had the turnovers the game would of been well in hand.
That game made me feel like Jibreel...I be like DANG. Great effort throughout and it was cool to see them all so happy at the end of the game.
this is the most passionate, excited, and yet humble group of players i've ever seen-- no wonder all of michigan is behind them, they deserve it.
speaking of which-- Hail to the crowd and the MMB at Michigan stadium! that was an inspiring show of crowd support
kill my wife's p---- tonight! She doesn't even know either !!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
will welcome the Wolverines with open arms! I'm there what a game!
There is no quit in these guys. Go Blue!
did you see that stuff? Did you see his speed as he almost tracked that guy down? Dude has made potential. Good stuff Ray! Its great day to be a Michigan Wolverine!
HAIL TO THE VICTORS VALIANT
But I would like to go on record as saying, WOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Great effort all around!
What else can you say? This team played with heart today, they never bowed out, didn't let the mistakes sink in, and kept doing what they do.
Great game! Exciting finish! Good job boys....
I am so happy for these players. They are young and doing their best, let's stay behind them.
I have had a rough week, bad work week, we had a miscarriage this week, I nearly got into a car accident, I wiped out on a log on my Saturday morning run and have a massive welt...and if we would have lost I would want to just crawl into a cave. At least something is going my way today.
No quit, all fight. Go Blue!
on the Field and their parents in attendence/or in their abodes! Hail to the fans and the University of Michigan! Hail to A2 have fun stary safe tonight! Go Blue beat purdue!
