"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
Michigan vs. Nebraska 4th quarter Open Thread
Just bomb it deep and see what happens. And no more first down east-west runs.
Yeah throw it deep throw it deep!
I'm just not sure how we can score enough to take the lead. Not over but not looking good.
I'm here with my girls (7 and 10) on my birthday debating which I should wish for. Do I wish for a Michigan win or a Tigers win? What we decided was I would wish for Denard to recover and win the game.
I'd settle for denard returning for next week
Michigan win. Tigers are a lost cause.
and sorry it was such a pile of crap.
hope you wished for something else.
As painful as this is to watch, we're still only down a touchdown.
You should wish for msu to beat Nebraska in their next game
Quietly, Roh's been having one helluva game
wow just wow!
It's ok Bellomy, you only missed him by 30 yards.
Can we just play wildcat the rest of the game?
please no more Bellomy?
please no more Bellomy?
Is he that bad ?? I'm saying why isn't he in atQB
Where the holy hell is DG? I swore he was still on the QB depth chart. Bellomy is giving me painful flashbacks of Threet/Sheridan...
At least Threet could pull a pass out if his ass from time to time. This is terrible.
And cue credits.
you have a mobile qb. Your second qb needs to be ready to play at all times. Bellomy actually looks worse than Sheridan, and more than questioning the playcalling which has been iffy at best I am questioning Borges ability to coach a quarterback. After all he is the quarterback coach.
This is why 4 cupcakes at the start of the season would be best..Games over by halftime and the backups get game time experience but nope bring on a tough schedule
Fuck everything. Borges sucks, Bellomy sucks, and Denard needs to suck it up and at least try to come back in.
They guy is obviously hurt. Give him a break
You're talking off of pure emotion. If he can't grip the ball he can't grip the ball.
rabble rabble rabble
Denard could at least go over and talk to Bellomy and try to help him instead of just standing there. Not much of a team leader.
Denard's not Jay Cutler...
No. Bellomy is.
Yea let's fuckin blame this shit on denard too. Fuck
Just saying he could be over with Bellomy encouraging him.
i can imagine this would have made a big difference.
Denard: "Hey RB, you can DO IT!"
RB: "Thanks Denard, I didn't think I could. But now I DO!"
(throws three TDs to win game)
Denard: "See I told ya!" (big smile, wink)
RB: "You did Denard. You sure did."
(they both jump in the air for a high five, the picture freezes capturing the moment, and the music from CHIPS starts to play)
Isnt that weird considering how bad we seem to be playing.
We now know what msu feels like this year. Awesome
No just no!!!
This is the fear we all had when Devin went to wide receiver. There has been pros and cons to it.
Somebody finally caught the damn ball.
OH BELLOMY MAKING PLAYS!
Well now it's definitely over
Seems like a pass catching tight end would be bellomy's best friend. Wonder if we have one of those on the team.
Nightey night fellas
is the extent to which Denard has bailing out some deficiencies on the O-line.
I'm not ripping on the line here which has played well beyond my limited expectations coming into the season, but their job is made a lot easier by the fact that the other side has to contain.
It's true, this oline can't physically man handle any good defense.
Just a sickening game tonight.
I get he's a big ten old school coach, but you got a freshman, probably nervous qb in, why not call plays the plays. At least influence the play calls.
an inexperienced quarterback requires an inexperienced play caller. like dissolves like, or something like that.
this is a joke right? on the plus side my phone tells me that was a safety
Well let's just hope for next week and that denard is back so we don't have an elementary qb in
Hopefully Denard is ok and will be back next week, as obviously our offense is nothing without him. Russ, i feel bad for the kid, about as bad as possible for a major debute on the big stage. Hopefully, the rest of his career is much better than tonight. Defense was ok until the end when i am sure they were just tired from being on the field ever since the Denard injury.
Important part to take from tonight is that yes we failed at taking a commanding lead in the Legends, but we still can win the B1G championship.
