In case the LiveBlog doesn't get off the ground. Let's try to keep it clean folks.
things go poorly
Should we set up something separate for play-by-play since this thread is likely to be slammed with comments? Also, thanks for creating this thread.
ESPNU showed Denard warming up... Dude is ripped.
I'm pumped for this one! I'm looking forward to seeing Robinson and the rest of our offense racking up some big points in this game. If our defense can shut down Chappell then we'll slice the jugular that is the Hoosier offense.
Pam Ward just came on and I'm already annoyed
Have you noticed how close in tone and tenor Ward's voice is to the color commentator. Weird. And doubly annoying.
Apparently Pam Ward is wearing a wig made from hay.
and a channel that shows all of the women's college championships games on...
Let's see if this works?:
Yep, got a LiveBlog going, so if anyone feels like joining we can do live PBP
Nevermind, LiveBlog is up and running, hit the main page
Need to download something?
Pam Ward is not attractive. Why can't Michelle Beadle do this game?
Pam is more mannish than I recall.
No makeup for Pam today?
Uh ohh, must be a big game EspnU has Mr. Pam Ward on the call.
I think this thread will have more comments on Mr. Ward than on the actual game.
I would be totally fine with our road uniforms if we'd just get rid of those weird stripes running up the sides. They look like a floppy pair of suspenders.
That and Bill Lynch gum tossing.
Well, they aren't calling holding today.
Lets get em Shoelace & co.
run through the line like that because you just got to think to yourself those poor bastards on defense lol. Man that kid can fly.
Lets get a stop now D, because they cant stop our ground game.
omg, this is looking pretty for the offense.
Love Tate congratulating Denard just there!!
Did everyone else catch that??
Tate's turnaround, regarding attitude, I think is fantastic. Everyone blasted him (myself included) when he had problems, but now I think it's time to give credit where credit is due. Major kudos to Tate for turning things around, i love to see that.
Also credit our coaching staff too, b/c they no doubt played a part. The massive number of transfers are not good, but, there are good things they're doing too relative to coaching players and managing personalities well. Tate, IMO, is evidence of this.
quarterback to Michigan. He's displayed some awesome support to Robinson as of late. I know he's thinking "man I wish that was me playing" but he's not letting his ego take control of his attitude and that is a sign of maturity. He's a great teammate.
The Roy Roundtree curse lives on, just can't get that extra yd or two to get in the endzone.
Thing is though, there's no way he would have gotten that far were it not for the outstanding downfield blocking by Grady. So, I'm looking at that play as a positive for Grady, rather than a negative for Roundtree for not getting in the end zone.
Maybe they should bring Tate out for a series to do a slow drive, just to keep our defense off the field. These 90 second drives is going to where down our own defense....
The 90 second drives are exciting, but, yeah, I agree w/ you.
I am sooooo thankful you're nowhere near our coaching staff.....there are reasons you're watching this from your couch.
Cannot give up a 99 yard drive here.
Why can't we just have an even mediocre defense?
Yeah a stop here would have been nice, can't give up 99 yard drives and expect to win. Michigan's offense needs to keep the defense off the field.
and there's the 99yd drive just like Illinois
Man I'm getting some really scary flashbacks to the Illinois game right now..
Gotta cut down on those penalties
99 yards to a td? Well that bad snap caused it all. Should be 21-7.
I blame moosman
It will be a very long day for Mich
Man if we had a half decent defense.....the possibilities.
Honestly we could be a top 10 team if our D didn't suck so much.
Can't get any worse..
GERG. Worst coach in college football.
Don't know about worst coach but I don't understand why he is blitzing with J.T. Floyd
What he could he possibly do to be the worst? Light Kovacs on fire?
The heads in the sand on him being anything but the worst coach in college football are mind-boggling.
