Have at it.
As I post this Roundtree is burst free on a bubble screen for a TD. Go Team MGOBLOG.
Bubble screen touchdown....Borges is already dreading the press conference..
bubble screen ftw!! borges presser should be fun lol
Bubble screen and great downfield blocking. Really great blocking. I love seeing that.
Anyone know how to listen from an iPhone??
Working great. Go Blue!! Gallon for Heisman!!
I use the iHeart Radio App. You can get WTKA on it.
How happy is Brian right now? I'm picturing him yelling "I told you Al" over and over.
pretty sure that was Gallon
A draw play for ILL 9 yards. Next play a TFL and an offensive penalty.
Looks like Desmond Morgan got 48
Who's wearing #48?
Mich D blew up ILL screen.
Desmond just wanted to make sure everyone knew he was wearing the legends jersey.
High snap, D stops, gallon returns to 34 of mich.
Iowa 19 MSU 16
I've noticed every time Jake Ryan makes a great tackle he always has something to say to whoever he just killed-I would pay $ to hear what he tells his victims.
Fitz getting some space. Liking that
Rawls earned some early carries. Good deal.
Crap. Hopefully just a cramp
Don't think he'd be banging the turf in frustration if it were just a cramp. We'll see.
Barnum injured, ILL 91 might have bopped the back of his left calf.
Issue, can't afford to lose any linemen
Nice catch by tree.
Tree catch inside the 10.
Whew! Held my breath on that one. Good play Roundtree.
uh oh...throwing hand hurt for Denard
Denard injured. Gripping his right hand.
Hate to see stupid injuries in a game like this
This is a bad day fellas...
Didn't want them under these circumstances, but Bellomy gets some significant snaps.
ILL goal line stand. Toussaint up the middle on 2nd and 3rd. Gibbons FG good 10-0 Mich
Its a shame our line cant get the push we are used to. Would have liked to see Rawls there...
I would have dialed up a play action. First play
Defense needs to shut them down now. Bellomy is capable of finishing this game for the win.
This game has changed dramatically if Denard can't go. I agree with Hoke taking the 3 points there with Bellomy in now. Points could be harder to come by. Hopefully Russell can prove me wrong.
Losing our RG and QB against Illinois when we look like we could win the conference fucking blows. Insightful but I am sick right now.
BORGES SHOULD BE FIRED! WHY RISK GETTING YOUR QB HURT?!?
Gerald Ford offsides again.
Bama blocked a punt deep in Mizzou territory up 14-0
I see the whole midwest is getting the rain as I flip through the channels.
just said that denard and Barnum should be back next series
Sound was out for me when he was talking
Bama has 208 yards with 2:19 left in the 1st.
Every time I watch Bama play I feel better and better about that game.
ND just took an int back pretty far
ND sure has a knack for getting picks. Two already today against Stanford.
Stanford is trying to give the game to ND just like UM did.
Oh, and DAMMIT Denard! Stay healthy!!
ILL 12 dropped a screen pass. 3rd & 8.
If Ryan's not there that is a catch and YAC
Another clutch drop. We got very lucky there, gentlemen.
The kid air it out a bit. I want to see what he's made of
Bellomy is in. I predict we run Rawls and Toussaint.
Hello my pulls a read option and takes it to the house. Raback it
Any news on Denard? It's raining cats and dogs here and we need Denard.
EMU loses 52-47 to Toledo. EMU RB Bronson Hill 26-283yards 4 TD's. Toledo QB 21-32 401 yards 3 TD's. Toledo WR-kick returner Bernard Reedy 407 all-purpose yards 3 Td's.
He's back in.
Footballs in Lubbock are made of lead apparently. WVU only has 7 points, and they're at least 2-3 minutes into their game.
There is a space time continuous anomaly. Funchess dropp
gotta help him out
Got to help the kid out.
Wow! Two straight drops. Help the young guy out.
What was Furman thinking?
What's with all these stupid penalties.
It was kicked too high.
you can't just run the guy over?
Tree makes the hard catch and drops the sure thing.
This game has the feeling of a dangerous game now. Michigan cannot let them stay in this game.
Will have to take control and place the boot upon the neck
This game is going downhill and fast.
Stressful with the injuries and penalties!
Receivers need to take those gloves off in this weather. Bare hands on leather works a lot better in rainy weather like this.
Everything is nuts when it rains like that. I think Funchess and Tree make both those catches if it's not raining, and Furman pulls up -- it almost looked like he couldn't see the guy. LOL!
If we wanted to motivate them any more then we already have I can't think of any better ways.
Two Hearted Ale.
Where does Ryan even come from each play
has an injured right pinky finger. Hopefully he can come back in.
Scheelhaase hit hard and down with injury after a 23 yard run.
Naw wind knocked out
Looked that way.
Oh wow that doesn't look good for him
Definitely a concussion
JT Floyd literally ran away from a blocker on that Scheelhause run
Too many injuries down there
You hurt our quarterback, we'll hurt yours.
Looks like Mattison possibly made the adjustments for them gashing us up the middle.
Have any of you tried threading on Maize N Brew?
I think it is the best site for blogging during the game, SBNation, give it a try, it updates automatically and just a great format. I use it for Bless you boys and Pride of Detroit sites.
I would really like to see Gardner at qb. I feel like he could gash this Illinois team with qb draws and options. They don't need him to throw with the weather the way it is and our receivers can't catch today anyway.
Or bring back Denard!
Obviously that is what I was hoping for, but going on the notion that he may not have returned.
ILL FG wide right.
Nevermind Denard is back!!!!!!!!!
Denard hands off to Toussaint for 4 yards.
Justice Hayes sighting!
Aaaahhhh ok. Happy Time!
Rawls runs for 6 2nd and 4 Mich
Rawls shoots up the middle like a missle for the 1st down on 3rd and short.
Denard loses a shoe, gains 33 yards, and knocks over a Mich cheerleader.
Denard just tackled a cheerleader. Oops.
Denard stiff armed a linebacker of a cheerleader!
She looked about 185lbs!
Can't build a pyramid without a base!
Dantonio for concussion protocol
Scheelhaase looks confused on the sideline, riding exercise bike.
Denard prances into the end zone!
Alabama-Mizzou delayed for lightning at 27-0 8:40 2Q.
Hoke staying true to his word with the short sleeves in this weather. Gotta love it.
That there Hoke is a MAN!
But he's not 40
West Virginia's "Point-A-Minute" defense is living up to its name, holding Tech to just 280 yards and 21 points in the first 20:58.
ESPN College Football Primetime is all SEC teams. LOL
21-7 Texas tech over WVU. So that's what happens when a team actually plays defense. Imagine if Denard had played in the Big East or Big 12. He'd have triple the yards and touchdowns and 3 Heismans by now, lol.
Defensive stand on 4th and 1.
Looking like Clay Matthews
Brian Kelly should be fired for Mike DeBoard.
Run. The. Football.
Dileo holds on to the ball and takes the hit.
We're using timeouts!! Nice!!!!
I love seeing Denard sliding, cerebral.
Bleh, Michigan punts with 30 seconds on the clock before the half.
Don't like penalties but I do like seeing Furman by the ball when the punts are caught.
"this game is a football game"
Seeing Coach Hoke on an a rainy October Saturday afternoon in a polo shirt and hair dripping wet. This guy leads from the front.
WVU=lol. #5 team I'm the country? Really? They need to rethink the way they rank teams.
Bwahahahahahahahaha @ ND
Do you have a quick run down of how things have looked so far in that game?
Sounds eerily familiar.
I feel for Roundtree in this game. Two big drops.
That last one I can kind of understand since there was a guy on him. The first one there was not a single defender within several yeards of him.
I hear you, I just saw his face and you can tell he is frusterated.
Texas Tech now has touchdown drives of 75, 69, 82 and 86 yards. In the first half.
Doege is 20 of 28 for 317 yards.
The Doege over WV.
With the loss to Iowa??
What does RCMB stand for anyway?
Red Cedar Message Board.
Is absolutely awful, no wonder the offense scores seventy a game. They have to I'd they want a chance to win
Imagine how bad Texas's offense must be--they couldn't even get 500 yards on this team.
Balls. Norfleet has em.
Too many cuts
He really years bad d's apart
Denard, are you shittin me? What a run!
The man. Touchdown Michigan.
I. Love. Denard.
Whoever made that "Is Braxton faster than Denard" thread last week should be forced to watch that play on repeat until The Game
Heck, I didn't make that thread but I may just watch that run repeatedly for years!
Man crush reinvigorated
RCMB is soooo classy...
"I'm rooting for Denard to have a career-ending neck injury"..
Demens making some plays today.
For president. I love this D
Denard is just amazing in space. They should've given him Desmond number. I feel like a kid again watching him run.
I'll send your wife over...
sorry that was uncalled for
Yeah, that was uncalled for...she waxes it...at least last time I checked :P
Was he in?
What the Funchess!?!?!
Denard put that right on the money!
Anyone else? Beuhler?
Time to bring in the reserves!
A shutout would be Awesome!
I swear Funchess is over 7' tall. The kid is an enormous target.
So you're saying he's Taco Pants?
Yes...and rarely drops a pass.
What a great grab from Funchess
I thought that ball was going to be way overthrown out of the back of the end zone. Then I realized Funchess was there.
Nice way to attack the ball! Different Michigan team these past weeks. Looks good.
With his current size and frame, I would not be surprised to see him grow to an athletic 270 lbs. Pretty scary for a safety to tackle that.
Is 6'5" and #2 for the Illini is 5'10". Profit.
1. the meaning of RCMB, and
2. Greg Robinson's favorite sideline toy.
Ridiculous Cock Munching Bastards
What it really means
Big Q is bringing it.
I want to see a shutout.
Still want to see the 2's and 3's get some run too!
The D is on point today!
I hope to see Bellomy in the next series. No need to risk Robinson in this weather.
Ok, let's let Denard rest up now for next week.
To come out. We don't need a bad injury!
Just a different feel to this team the past couple games. Look out B1G
but I agree.
Why must you test triple coverage Denard?
Right when announcers are talking about you wanting to play qb in NFL
Awesome punt and coverage.
Destroyer of Worlds
Thanks for the pass, replay guy.
Great, now we get Jake Ryan bloody tooth GIFs.
Ryan with a bloody tooth. The guy is an animal.
At this point, I'm just cackling maniacally.
I'm starting to think Jake Ryan might literally be Clay Matthews' long lost younger brother.
Why must you get sealed, playside DE?
please pull all starters.
ILL got a PF because an offenive player didn't sit out a play after losing his helmet. Chart that, Brian.
He continued playing with the helmet off.
Not because he didn't sit out a play, but because he stayed engaged for about 3 seconds after losing his helmet. Chart THAT.
That helmet off penalty is the dumbest rule change I.ve ever seen.
Ok let's get all starters out. We have some business to take care of next week.
Jake Ryan is a freaking beast.
I think he will have killed somebody before the game is over.
My mancrush on Jake Ryan might possibly eclipse the one I have on Jordan Kovacs.
Bonus coverage?! Fuck this.
How about they pull the Tech blowout in Lubbock in areas where M was the preferred game?
There's an entire quarter left. Wtf espn?
Y u must suck at sports?
Game is on espn
About Osu va byu
Why is my broadcast TV showing Beavers-BYU instead of my Wolverines!?
Enjoy beaver coverage.
This is insane, they take Michigan off and put on a game that no one in this area cares about at all. On top of that the Michigan vs Illinois game is blacked out on ESPN 3
The game is on ESPN
Can't find it anywhere (in Cincinnati)
I can understand the novelty value of Beavers at Brigham Young.
But I don't understand why Tech's attempt to put 1000 yards on West Virginia gets priority.
Nice way to blow up that play Commish!
I have directv and its on for me. Norfleet just had a huge kickoff return.
Punt return. Awesome speed by Norfleet.
...I'm pretty sure that was a punt return.
I'm still seeing a zero next to Illinois.
Yeah...punt return...that's what I said.
Norfleet! Now that dude is fast. Maybe 2nd to Denard?
I'm just wondering why he didn't make a small cut there and blow by the punter. He's insanely fast, probably about as quick as Denard. Note, I did say about!
Tackled by punter? Norfleet is terrible.
I got it on ESPN 3 now
Thank god for wood radio and here I heart app. Otherwise my M game would be over for the day. F u espn/abc
"Almost" good catches...
Bellomy throws his first completion of the season (and his career)!
He's had some rough appearances, I was really hoping that he'd get a completion or two before the end of the game. Go Bellomy!
Kids gonna be good in the future. This defense, even the backups are playing lights out
Bellomy has some promise...looks like a talented QB. Needs to refine some of his skills, obv.
He also needs to get rid of that ball tap he does before he throws.
What a difference a couple years make defensively...65 points compared to 0
Yet another sack! D looks very good today.
i love jake ryan
Really nice move from ojemudia off the line. Then great hustle to finish it off
Dang it McMurty!
O'Toole falls victim to the death stare!
Rawls to the house!
That was brutal!
In game. Pardon me ma'am.
Since we've got Jack Kennedy in as well. Go Blue Very Presidential win on day we honor the only prez I've shaken hands with and we play namesake of the other prez I saw in person. CSB I know.
Big ole bowling ball of fun.
I want to see this type of performance next week.
Maybe Fred Jackson was right about Rawls! Great TD run!
Rawls is too good for opponent's back ups.
Rawls may be inching closer to being the starter...
Lets beat those "green fuckers" next week, as one MGoBlogger put it.
Come on you RBs. Feed on each others' energy and improve your skill sets.
Jack Kennedy sighting!
He threw for a first down!!!!
I wish they'd hurry up and decide a game time for next week.
We officially own Illinois.
Gotta love this D.
For a well rounded victory
Just got home from work and coverage has been switched to BYU v Oregon St. What gives? Reasons to like BTN.
Can't decide if I want to root for or against ND. On one hand, a ND win could mean our only loss will be to top 5 ish teams. On the other hand, the ND fans will be even more insufferable.
Never root for Notre Dame. NEVER.
Drive Summary: 15 plays, 98 yards
Probably their best defensive possession of the day--they finally got their yards/play average below ten for the game.
Interesting little stat there.
I can't stand Notre Dame. Ever.
Good lord, someone teach the Stanford RB how to jump and reach the ball over the line.
EDIT: Second effort looks good, should be overturned.
