Help Finding Great Video Clips
Sorry, I wish I could help you with those clips. Frankly, I'd LOVE to see them if you ever do find them!
That Capital One game against Florida was one of my favorite Michigan games ever. So many spectacular plays on both sides of the ball. Our WR's were making circus catches. Our Defense was knocking the crap out of Tebow on just about every play. You could tell the team was in fact "playing for this man."
We'll probably never know why the offense looked so unrestrained (in a good way) in that last game, but it sure looked like someone gave DeBord a brain transplant.
What's often overlooked is that the defense gave up 30+ points. I'm glad they got to pop Tebow (America's QB) a few times, but I wouldn't say it was a great performance. Still, when you consider the disasters of App State and Oregon earlier in the year, it was decent, especially when compared to Florida's other opponents that year:
We do know, by memory and by the clip below...injuries.
Didn't see the clip ...
To your point, that wasn't the only Henne-Hart-Manningham-Arrington game where all the pieces were available. They'd just never been deployed quite like that.
That was the only game with everyone healthy the whole season. App state Mike had a bum ankle. After that for the entire rest of the regular season Henne had the shoulder injury that kept him out of action.
Not to mention Jake Long's ankle injury at the beginning of the season.
That's at least partly beside the point. The style of offense isn't entirely based on the availability of top-notch players.
Also, there were games in '06 when all those pieces were available. I don't recall seeing an offense like the one in the last game.
I think you meant to say '05 instead of '06
We lost 2 games total in '06...by 3 points @OSU where we scored 39 (ie the offense wasnt really an issue) and in the bowl game that was definitely a let down but wasn't at all close.
05 is where we lost a bunch of games by one score.
And that he called the games the way that Carr wanted them called?
This is the post-game speech (or much of the portion you requested anyway) from a then-fledgling BTN, with some of the on-field stuff from ABC:
Here is something else from the locker room, although the audio on this one isn't so great. Presumably, this was before the speech in the other clip, but I could be wrong.
Most of the great clips and highlights on YouTube are gone now. At least two different profiles that posted them all were deleted. I'm pissed.
Was the English thing even filmed? I thought it was just covered in the Chengelis piece that came out after the game.
There's one in every Meijer
