Michigan-N'western's on BTN Now
I can't believe I'm watching the whole thing again.
It's over, I'm calling it. We're up 14-7, with our defense there's no way NW gets even.
What's crazy is I actually thought that yesterday
DO NOT TELL ME WHO WINS. THIS IS THE DVR ERA, DAMMIT.
Sweet, I had 'The Longest Day" on in the background editing a document, but all those explosions were too distracting. This is a little less disruptive.

Nice and calm back there. Sure doesn't look like a guy only getting his second start. He can be a touch late on some balls, but that will only improve with more reps.
They just showed Fitzgerald jumping around after the PF on Beyer. What a total dick move.
....and there's the Gardner pick. Yea it was a lazy toss, but young Mr Funchess has to go get that ball too, IMO. That's a feel thing he'll develop with experience.
If my math is correct, I figure we can get the ball back with about 18 seconds left. Plenty of time.
That was a great hit by James Ross. I thought he played very well yesterday. It's exciting to think about these young LB's
Ross - Frosh, Bolden - Frosh, Morgan - Soph, Ryan RS Soph
Team 134 will be very good with offense and defense being relatively young and schedule is a lot easier...
Love Kovacs pointing and telling the official what end they were going to play on. Good stuff Mr. Kovacs
Demens makes the play on third down too. WOW
had himself a game yesterday. Roundtree as well. Additionally, I thought Devin showed some nice moments of leadership. He never quit, and played particularly well in OT.
Rewatching the game, Gardner threw at least 4 passes that were awfully risky. Hope he can eliminate those risky passes, he can't try to force things against Ohio...
Agreed but one key difference between the two is that Devin misses low generally and Denard misses high. Devin's low passes are much harder to pick and seem (to my watchful eye anyways) to arrive with much more velocity than Denard's.
Having just watched the game on TV after being there yest I must say I'm even more impressed with Gardner than I was yesterday. 2013 might just be ok afterall.
Denard tends to throw behind his WRs, when he throws bad. Gardner seems to me was just trying to thread the needle a few times too many.
I have now shifted my greatest source of fear for next year to be replacing most likely 4 starters off the oline. Devin played a solid game against a quality big10 opponent regardless of what the naysayers say...with an offseason of dedicAted qb snaps, I see no reason why he can't be a very good quarterback.
Yeah, remember how awesome that 2006 Florida defense was under Urban Meyer? Greg Mattison does.
I understand that Mattison was part of that squad but I don't really get what you're trying to say. What does that have to do with Ohio's D this year, or Gardner's throwing?
OSU's defense last year had problems and those problems have continued to this season. A lot of Meyer's national championship reputation comes from Tim Tebow and Greg Mattison. Meyer has an awesome QB now, but they're a mess on defense.
Also, Mattison is awesome.
Yes Mattison is freakin' awesome. Mindblowing what he's done with the D.
Thanks for asking that. I didnt have a clue what he was trying to say but what with the mods all in an uproar tonight I figured discretion was the better part of valor.
You'd have to be a pretty outsized tool for me to even downvote you, much less hammer you for a response to one of my posts.
That was a joke. Not the part where I didnt understand your point about Mattison - I was serious there. No...the joke part came when I claimed to afraid to ask you what the hell you were saying due to your mod powers and all that.
