Sparty 3 and out. Of course.
Late Afternoon Games Open Thread - Christmas in East Lansing
Godamn it Sparty
Wtf is sparty doing. Run the damn ball.
Sparty is going to choke this away. Damn it.
meanwhile.....Sparty is starting to crap the bed.
Fuck you State!!! You had a pick 6 to end the game, no thanks. A 3rd down sack, no thanks. Fuck you Sparty.
telling sparty not to choke is like telling a dog not to piss.
Don't count out ND yet. The way their luck has gone this year, it's not over.
Make a fucking catch Sparty! Aaaaggghhhhhh!!!!!
Sparty is good for nothing. They are absolutely choking this game away.
Not that I care about WVU...but watching Dana Holgerson lose yet again brings a smile to my face.
...they sure do choke a lot.
ND will get the ball back with 3 min left. Way too much time.
It's too bad the ND game isn't be played on the B1G Network so we could get a "#Rees or #Gholson" Twitter contest going here for who gets the nod with the season on the line.
3 and out....no time off clock.
Fuck, Pitt went 3 and out with 3 min left
Just to be clear, Pitt is not winning this game. This is a typical ND game against a team that has a chance to upset them in South Bend. All Pitt did was give ND another chance to run up more yards. Then the Panthers will lose in OT. It's science.
NBC's broadcast for ND games are outright unwatchable unless you're a Domer.
One of these days, Narduzzi is going to a dial up a blitz that will be totally the wrong move and....oh....
Sparty and Pitt choking. You can practically smell it.
Way too much time for ND. Way too much oppotunity for MSU to Sparty this away
Went for 2 in 2nd OT.
And there it is. Eff you Pitt.
ND first and goal already...lol wow. One of those years
1st and goal nd, what was that defender doing
They only bring 4 again.....first and goal ND
So they randomly just give ND 7 seconds? And then Pitt cant cover.
Gohlson had literally 15 or more seconds to throw that pass.
Doing his best Devin Gardner impression.
TD for ND. All comes down to the 2-point conversion.
TD ND - 2pt conv upcoming
God damn it Pitt
State almost had another PF. Jesus
Fuck you pitt
And there's the choke.
DAMN IT ALL
Who didn't see that coming?
Fuck you, ND.
Pitt's defense went home after the first half.
4th quarter they just went to fetal position!
WolverineHistorian is right. Pitt will probably kick a field goal, then ND will get a phantom PI call and get a subsequent TD. I hate you Pitt
on the bright side...at least Pitt has the ball and has a very slight chance to do anything positive with it.
Pressure all day....get up 14 and then go into a shell. ND may win this in regulation?
This is one of those Luck of the Irish kind of games. Somewhere, Lou Holtz has a shit-eating grin on his face.
With drool, EVERYWHERE
Well at least it looks like MSU will hold on.
State still needs a first down.
Good field position and lots of time for Pitt.
PI gives ND a TD, opposing team blows lead, ND wins in overtime... I've seen this movie before.
They're trying to give it away in regulation.
If one of these teams have to win, I'd much rather it be ND at least. Nebraska/MSU controls our destiny a bit. ND is just annoying and the best they'll do is to lose 35-0 in the MNC game against Bama
Very questionable move by Nebraska to go for it on 4th and 9. They could have punted and pinned MSU deep, and then used their timeouts.
great pocket presence Sunseri...wow. Just keep backing up kid. No wonder the good sunseri went to Bama while you ended up at Pitt.
ND wins this in regulation
Yep. no doubt about it.
Notre Dame is going to win in regulation. Pitt you suck
The Pitt of despair...
Pitt isn't even trying to win this game.
Pitt playing for overtime. ND will win in regulation.
best part of all this is when ND gets moved to #1 for beating Pitt at home.
Pitt punting....ND should get decent position. Not that it matters if Pitt doesn't rush more than 4.
ND has to fall in ranking big time, even with a win here.
nd didn't gain any ground, but a win is a win.
To who? Oregon is the only team that can jump them without causing a team in front of them to fall behind ND in ranking (assuming an ND win).
darn luck of the Irish
I really think we beat Ohio. They allowed 22 more points to Illinois than we did. Both teams are around the same we just had a flat out harder schedule playing two top 5 teams and at Lincoln.
He's had the yips all day.
ND doing its best Pitt impersonation
Why is PItt calling a timeout?!?!?!
LOLOL that is so terrible.
Edit: I forgot this was ND's offense. Not so terrible.
Called TO on ND hoping to get the ball back. It's more likely it just gives ND 20 more seconds to win it to complete the full Bielema
So...I kinda like Sparty's D in this situation.
Sparty is going to blow it.
Pitts pulling an Indiana, calling the same play every down, and letting the opposing offense just walk all over they're defense.
Don't you dare F this up sparty, or big brother is going to come itno your room while you sleep and teabag you.
Why would Big Brother want to do that to himself?
Sparty is going to hold on....
Sparty is going to hold on....
Don't be Sparty, Sparty.
Hope they crush USC!!!
ND punts. Nebraska at 4th & 10 with :40 left and no TO's from their 45ish
and Pitt is playng for OT...wow Chryst, no balls at all.
Of course. Fucking Sparty.
LOL SPARTY My God.
GOT. TO. BE. SHITTING. ME. STAEE.
What's Brian's line? False hope is worse than death?
Epic Sparty no.
Gholston was offside. That's so uncharacteristic of him.
What is Pitt's goal here?
both are blowing it. Both will go to OT and both will lose
I'm not sure Sparty will even make it to OT. They could blow it in regulation.
Was it just me, or did anyone else shout, "NARDUZZI! BAD CALL!" right before the MSU pass coverage fell apart? Nebraska in FG range now....
Gholsten will always be an idiot
Fuck you State.
Really? I can fully believe it.
Are you fucking kidding me?!?!!? How the fuck do you call that PI??
Most epic Sparty of all...
what an awful call
Say call pass interference on every play this week?
On that pi bell almost looked injured
Big Ten Refs are PI happy today eh?
1st & goal nebraska from the 5 with :17 left
Of course. here's where Nebraska wins.
The PI's are ruining games today.
Jobbed by the officials there. That was just great coverage.
Edit: You edited before I commented it would appear
Yeah I queued that comment up before the zebras decided to destroy our Rose Bowl hopes.
Sparty's asshole has to hurt after that call.
Sorry, but no way that's pass interference, that was great coverage.
I almost hope Nebraska wins so Dantonio's head explodes.
horrible PI call against Sparty. And I hate myself for saying that
That PI call may have just cost Michigan a Big Ten Title.
The refs better get out of East Lansing as quickly as possible after the game. Sparty is gonna murder someone tonight.
(I've had this set up for posting for a few minutes)
Oh damn you Michigan State.
Wow Sparty.....absolutely pathetic.
Screw you MSU. You've got to be kidding me
Damn it Sparty.
and thousands of couches cried out in terror: "Noooooo!!"
It's OK. Sparty is just happy they trolled us. Didn't need the win.
No words. The refs just gave the game to Nebraska.
Oh well Nebraska will lose to PSU
And the refs screw Michigan in east Lansing, even when we aren't even playing there
Come on staee you are such a sad, pathetic team, can't you ever do anything good?
Fuck you, STATE!!''!!!!!!
"Spartans, what is your profession?"
Sparty's gonna spart.
go PENN STATE next week
MSU got completely jobbed. Two awful calls cost them the game.
So Pitt is up 20-6 in the 4th and MSU is up 24-14 in the 4th. What happens next???
PI call doesn't matter....blowing it on 4th and 10 is the reason you lose this game Sparty.
Obviously, I'm dissappointed Nebraska doesn't pick up another lose, but I can't help but laugh at Sparty. What a meltdown since that pick six was called back.
I'll have you all know that the refs ruined this game. This is not because I'm a butthurt Michigan fan, either. Sparty has a legitimate bitch with this one.
man, PI calls have really gotten out of hand.
ND and Nebraska both got TDs after horrendous calls.
SHIT! Thanks sparty.
Can I get a "fuck you state"?
FUCK YOU STAEE
Sparty is so absolutely worthless
WHO SAID IT?????? I KNOW SOMEONE SAID IT!!!! Oh well. Nebraska could still lose to Penn State I guess.
That wasn't even a Sparty NO! That was just a terrible call.
It was definitely a bad call, but they had already allowed NU to drive 60 yards (converting a 4th and 10) and into field goal range when it happened. They can't blame it all on the refs.
Your staple is defense and you're up 10 points in the 4th quarter. wtf
For MSU. Should have learned my lesson by now!
Sparty fans didn't even want to watch their team...empty seats. Why did I watch?
Because you're a Michigan fan, you understand sports, and support your team.
Sorry, I know, I know
Wow no helmet to helmet hit on Sunseri?
Dantonio just swiped the camera, but i understand he must be so constipated right.
I don't blame him. The last person he wants to talk to right now is the media.
I think he would've taken it like a man, a leader and a role model to many.
ND just got lucky they didn't get a roughing the passer call in OT. Guy lowered his helmet into the QB at the last second. In the NFL that's always a penalty. Now ND will score and win. Eff you, Pitt.
38 and Dantonio doesn't have the guts to put the game away? Punt into the endzone, give up a 4th and 10 and then give up the TD.
ND might lose
Welp....as much as that sucked, hahahaha Sparty. Your 2 yr run of luck in 10 and 11 are now an after thought.
Yeah, we needed Nebraska to lose, but at least Sparty spartying is a decent consolation prize
Please block this FG Pitt!!!!
Well...I guess we have the RCMB meltdown to look forward to.
Maybe we'll get some good ol' fashioned couch burning up in east Lansing.
Of coarse they make it
Golson is trying so hard to lose this game and Pitt is refusing to bite.
I bet a nickel Dantonio wins dumb punt of the week this week. I was literally screaming at the TV for him to go for it
fucking holding on ND and no fucking call
Thanks Sparty now I have to root for the pedo enablers. Terrible.
Do I hate myself enough to keep watching what is going to be an obvious ND win?
Yes because the goofiness and luck of the irish type thing that will happen has to be must see tv.
I am convinced Sparty derped away that game just to spite us
yea mayock and that god awful PI call.
ND Fumbles crossing the goal line. Please be upheld!
EDIT: That ball is out before he crosses the line!
i think that was a TD for ND
i take it back.. fumble
Please be a fumble
this will be overturned and be scored a TD...no question
He had zero control
Notre dame fumbles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's a definite fumble. Come on Pitt. Only need a FG.
This will be called a TD because it is in South Bend. No faith that the refs get it right
That's a clear fumble. But it will a TD because it's Notre Dame
Don't fuck this up Pitt!!!
lets go Pitt! let's go Pitt! let's go Pitt!
Lets goooo pitttt
Now don't blow this, Pitt.
They're going to blow it, aren't they?
OH. MY. GOD.
let's go pitt!
Swear to God if Pitt plays for a field goal I will kick something.
In Chryst we trust.
You have to give the Pitt defense a lot of credit, yeah it's a shit offense but still.
No one is to touch the ball except Ray Graham for this entire drive.
That was the perfect time for play action!
ok Harper......your chance to nail every girl on the pitt campus rides on this kick. Dont scew it up
oh yes.. ND tears taste so sweet.. hahaha... dammit.. if only
Are you kidding me? Fuck!
I HATE EVERYTHING
Are you kidding me?
I do not think it means what you think it means.
I for one did not see that coming at all.
godamn it Pitt
Why didn't they center the ball???!!!!!
I swear I just saw Jesus!
HE FUCKING MISSED IT
and you screwed it up.............why am i not surprised.
GOD hates me.
What are you doing, come on Pitt
Hey Pitt, maybe you should CENTER the damn ball. Jesus, I hate stupid coaching.
If so where the hell has he been the last decade?
I guess they change rule that they don't flip after every 2 OT's
Wow. Just wow.
...and they're going the distance with a team who shit the bed against Youngstown State.
Don't forget Stanford
You forgot Stanford...
Get rid of the ball
Mark May sucks!
so is ND really the number 3 team in the country?
To be fair college football in general is down this year besides Alabama, and maybe Oregon, are these top 10 teams really "top ten teams"
What was that, you had an open receiver, hit him
Pitt is just shitting the bed, now he fucking makes it.
Of course he nails it.
Oh, sure, make that one. Ass. Now ND scores a TD
Notre Dame is going to put it in the end zone right here.
Here comes a fumble.
Is there a reason Pitt isn't pressuring him at all?
Screw it. If Notre Dame wins out, so be it. Let them go to the national championship and get destroyed by Alabama. I'd be perfectly fine with that.
Think about the recruiting, money, and hype that they would get just from making it to a national championship game.
ND being in the title game is a terrible proposition for any of its recruiting rivals, and Michigan is one of them.
I could go for an int or fumble in the end zone right about now
Well, this is it.
If Oregon demolishes USC, I think they hurdle ND
"Team of Destiny"
these announcers are so annoying..
Well, you could turn off the sound and listen to Don Criqui on the radio.
I hope ND at least gets destroyed in the human polls. ND is the exact reason you don't leave it to a computer to rank teams.
I think it will turn out exactly the opposite--if they win out, at the end of the year ND won't be #2 in any legitimate computer ranking not bound by the BCS rules but they'll be #2 in the human polls. They're already behind Oregon and K-State at Massey, even before this.
Computers aren't affected by the relentless media drumbeat--the voters will be, eventually.
besides MICHIGAN winning today.. the rest of today/night sucks
I am having flashbacks to Chad Henne taking a goal line snap in 2005. Why doesn't this ever happen to ND?
Notre Dame has 9 lives.
FUCK YOU ND AND MSU
I hate college football.
That is all.
two chokejobs tonight..just brutal to watch
I hate this, god damn it, this is why we can't have NICE THINGS
Sometimes it's your year.
We had it last year, Notre Dame and Nebraska have it this year.
MSU up 24-14 and you just knew they were going to lose.
Pitt up 20-6 and you knew they were going to lose.
The only good thing about ND winning is that Manti Teo is a good guy.
That's a double suck
On the bright side, Iowa is going to have 30 seconds to drive the length of the field to beat Indiana. Who wouldn't love to see a 5-7 Indiana team in the B1G championship game? Especially if we get to play them.
Well the refs in South Bend did their job again. God damn it.
Here's justice: Oregon is killing USC. Notre Dame squeaked past Pitt in 3 OT. The Irish won't get a even sniff at the NC game.
ND winning is breaking news on the espn networks....really? Jeez
Sucks. I don't recall breaking news when Oregon or KSU are undefeated.
Indiana actually might go to the Big Ten championship game.
20 yards behind the play on an interception return might have kept Michigan out of the Big Ten title game.
