4th and inches and you have the most dynamic running threat in cfb and you call play action. This game is probally tied if we just run the ball.
Michigan vs. Michigan State/Early Games Open Thread
classless. Taunting, late hits, punches. Fuck you MSU.
TD michigan but flag
That I pay extra money each month for the ESPN package and my game has been blacked out since the 4th quarter started.
bottom line is we're the classy program and little brother has exposed their thug image on national television. We have great recruits coming in and we play clean.
Michigan is still a soft program.I think Hoke will change that, but this team is still has a ways to go before they reacquire the toughness they had under Bo.
flat out unprepared for MSU's blitzes, which I just don't understand. We did nothing to counter the blitzing all day. We played so poorly that we let MSU have 15 penalties, play like dirty bastards and never made them pay.
Their D is fantastic. But this is one of the worst displays of sportsmanship I've seen, the late hitting and cheap shots. Reminded of the U 20 years ago.
Take the 4 wins chumps.
Nice scramble Devin

anyone else really pissed that they just hurt our QB on a cheap shot
I'm one hundred times more pissed that our coaches had their heads in their own asses for the entire game.
Are timing our snap? They are jumping the snap as soon as Denard points to the ground...
depressing. Losing 4 straight years to this team, that was something I never thought I would see. And to add injury to insult, Denard got hurt on late hit by those dirty bastards.
motivation for next year
devin made 2 of the dumbest plays if not THE dumbest plays in the game. he throws after going 3yds over the line when he had lots of room in front of him. then he runs on 4th and 22?!
It's hard to blame Devin on either of those plays 100%. Let's cut him some slack, he hasn't played much in a Gameday situation. I mean on the LOS pass he probably thought his dropback and sack dodge had taken him deeper, plus he was looking pass the whole way so he wasn't looking for the sidelines.
And on the 4th and 22nd? Yeah that was stupid of him, but the alternative was to dance around the 50 all day waiting to get sacked. They had most of our receivers shut down so I doubt we would have converted
Hoke - you needed to step in and adjust Borges
Borges - you called a horrible game. Never put Denard in a optimal position. They are blitzing the play action side and up the middle all day long. Adjust Al...Adjust. - Nope you didn' we lost. That was the worst call in the fourth and 1. stupid stupid stupid.
Denard - you were challenged to throw and you failed. You threw a pick six to lose the game. You needed to sneak on that 4th and one. you need to think through your plays and be smart, not just explosive. Think Denard. Think!
Woolfolk - you cost us some big plays dude. I hope you dad gives you a sit down and reminds you how to play. You were slow and didnt contain...often
Running backs - where were you? Vince / Fitz. Hopkins as always is more of a risk than reward
Dline- you were pathetic - Martin, Van Bergen - where were you (Roh you have some good tackles)
Oline- you needed to protect Denard and open up lanes. Pick up the blitzes.
Receivers - their corners arent that good. Junior? Koger? Need to get open more guys.
Mattison - Where was you 2nd half magic?
We had plenty of opportunities as WE lost the game, MSU didnt win it. Way to go seniors, i just hope you have the balls to beat Ohio.
Like last year, MSU exploited M weaknesses that have been there all year.
we were able to overcome these with teams that are not defensive powerhouses. State's defense is still way overrated, but they are light years ahead of teams like NW. Every team the rest of the year wil stack the box and dare us to pass down field. It's not just scheme and offensive plan that didn't work, though. If we can't effectively pass, we will not be successful against decent defensive teams.
Horrible offensive play calling by Gorgeous today. Not only did he show a lack of faith in D Rob by unnecessarily inserting Gardner in the game but now he's opened up the floodgates for a quarterback controversy in Ann Arbor for the rest of the season. Denard deserves better than that! State defense played a dirty game and that definitely reflects on the leadership and that coaching staff. Gholston should have been out for that punch amongst other things and that pick six should have been negated for taunting. I'm so pissed right now!
