Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
I also just found this one in the interest of funny pictures: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/photos?photoId=2527272&gameId=323080135. Apparently ESPN cannot tell the difference between a 5'11" white guy who plays defense and a 6'5" black guy who plays offense. Check out the caption with the picture.
To an AP photo
In the next picture in ESPN's gallery, Jordan Kovacs (whose name is clearly visible) is referred to as "Michigan (sic) Lamonte Edwards".
Did they get a picture of Gravy Hulk congratulating Bartholamew Roundtree after his long catch?
Jake Ryan is kind of a beast...Man is he ever fun to watch while he disrupts the field, the guy seems to be everywhere.
Jake Ryan's great, but he really isn't doing anything special there in that .04 second clip... just sayin;
He uses would-be-blocker-guy as a weapon with which to hit the running back. I kinda thought it was something.
That guy is strong!!!!!
He basically manhandles the blocker (and in the process causes the blocker to impede the runner) and then bursts to the side, preventing the runner from gaining the edge, ending in a 5 yard loss for Minnesota. I thought it was pretty nice.
I think his point was that none of that was captured in the gif... I was thinking the same thing.
Then I'm going to destroy a qb blocker
was that he stayed responsible. He could have torn off after the RB and given up contain, but stayed home, saw the reverse coming, and blew it the hell up.
I agree, .04 seconds of Ryan eating a block isn't all that great. The play in the game was great, this GIF is not.
I agree this gif is dumb. I just want the straight up play.
A REFERENDUM ON MICHIGAN LINEBACKER #47 – THE NO MERE MORTAL PROVISION
The Provision would:
- Establish the constitutional right to maintain a long, blonde flow without retribution or scorn.
- Require opposing DC's to line up wimpy underclassmen TE's opposite Jake Ryan for the amusement of the Michigan fanbase at least twice per game
- Require Mr. Ryan make 160 tackles per season, of which 90 must be solo tackles.
- Require the Downtown Athletic Club to invite Mr. Ryan to the trophy ceremony every year until the expiration of his NCAA eligibiligy
Should this law be approved?
And I approve this message
Are full of lies. MLive says "ChopBlock's proposal would ... limit future ... players at ... Michigan."
While MVictors says "No ... More proposals ... From ChopBlock."
This ad was paid for by Wednesday Can't Get Here Soon Enough.
Yes, but Tremendous says:
ChopBlock's proposal...is... not... funded by insidious special interest groups looking to destroy the very fabric of society itself.
And Bleacher Report says:
Top 14 reasons "Yes on Seven" is underrated
So there's that.
We need a laugh in the midst of all of the negative ads about proposals. I know I got a few outta this one, good job!
During the game they brought up Cam Gordon's player profile with a photo of Courtney Avery.
They're the best.
Indeed. If only they covered all our games.
noticed that too.
if Borges et al. get the BTN feed upstairs, they could use it to their advantage. At least twice I saw the BTN line of scrimmage out of square with the field by about a half of a yard. Therefore, if the staff was paying attention, they would only have 9 1/2 yards to make the first down, depending on which way the line was running.
Anybody hear anything about his injury? (Impeccable, reliable, unimpeachable sources only, please.)
He abused that poor mini soda QB into the RB and then took him down for a 5 yard loss...I'm guessing that's a +3
Blaze....any chance you could slow it down just a wee bit? For the benefit of the older members of the board like me, Don and the avatar known as Herm.
The GIF doesn't pose any issues speed-wise for me. I don't think it's very interesting, but that's a different issue.
As long as we're talking about old people and speed: there are few things on this earth more frustrating to me than old people at the wheel. From the time the light turns green, it generally takes 4 seconds for their brain to register the fact, and then it takes another 3 seconds for their synapses to send the message to their foot to press the gas pedal, and even then it takes them 10 seconds to get through the intersection. If they're driving a Buick or a Prius, the process is even slower.
but not slow.
I'm not slow; I'm patient.
Bully. I have a special needs child who in school has to be bullied more than his fair share. Its not a funny word to him. I hate to be a debby downer because the posts are funny to anyone including myself.
Ryan is a talent plain and simple and I'm calling it now a first round draft pick.
Not to shit on Ryan because he's awesome but he's beating a block from the QB, any linebacker worth his salt should be able to throw most non-Cam Newton QBs like that
Uhhh you clearly missed when Chris Martin said Nelson is reminiscent of Tim Tebow.
It's nice to finally have a lb worth his salt again.
On the field, Jake Ryan is a bad man.
