Hate this call
Michigan vs. Northwestern (Open) Thread
My o-line sucks.....run power
I don't know whether this is smart or dumb, down by three. I'll tell you in a minute though. I'll wait until I have the benefit of hindsight.
Okay Jay, open fire...
We were going to the option..
It's the only play we run out of the pistol in this situation.

What on earth is Hoke thinking here? After watching Borges offense how could you ever go for it on 4th and 2 in field goal range?
My comments on my phone are seemingly in response to the wrong comments. Is this happening to anyone else? Im just asking because I dont want to watch this play
I think on the phone you can see comments from people that are banned. So it puts the comments on the next one down. Someone tried to explain it before and I think that is what they said.
and our touchdown less streak continues...fuck this
Dumbest fucking call of the year. Fire everyone!
What odds? We have no odds
You're right on that. I can't handle sarcasm right now
Gardner on a bootleg. How bout that. Borges is a mad scientist.
Awesome play call
“We didn’t tackle well today, but we made up for it by not blocking."
What in the actual fuck?
Burn motherfucker, burn.
Play action QB sweep...great call.
Brady Hoke don't wanna coach Michigan football no mo....maybe Les Miles does.
Al Borges is seriously the worst play caller in the country.
Why do you continue to put all of the pressure on your offensive line?
I fucking HATE you Al.
that's the straw. Fire borges. I'm done
I wish it was 2008? Fuck this coaching staff.
I've kept a level head all year but I'm about to split open and melt.
We've seen this movie before...
Defense plays a great game then you need to rely on them just one more time and they finally break.
So I guess this is where a defense with its spirits broken by an offense that offers them no support finally wilts....
Fucking Hoke there. This board is going to get fun
field goal 100% percent of the time. I cannot believe what I just saw. Worst call ever.
I'm not mad we didn't kick but ... Play action QB sweep?!
If you're going to run Devin...why not go shotgun QB blast with Green as a lead blocker?
Make Borges walk back to Ann Arbor.
Nice that we burned a timeout too. We wont need that or anything
Brady's got the headset on, we got this...oh wait he's just ordering Dominos
kick the fucking ball there. We can't move the ball. Kick it when you have points. Jesus lord
It'd be nice if we had all our timeouts here. Unfortunately, we had to burn one in order to call playaction on third and goal from the 11.
you grab the torches...
Only 3 more years of this shit!
Unfortunately, that's the truth, because Michigan football is a "family". Borges and Mattison have a contract for life.
Weeeeel we just gotta execute better ya know? Good playing uh just gotta execute it and uh hear football out there, ya know? Gotta play Meeechigan football uh this is Michigan fergodsakes
Yo Al. You met that boy Deez?
"This is the lowest day in my athletic career"...I'm beginning to think that's Coach Bo speaking from the grave...
Why is Northwestern going to win having scored only 9 points
The coaching staff does know it's not like in the NFL, tanking doesn't get you better players via a draft...
I still love me some Cam Gordon.
Alright D. One more time!!
Good god, maybe Gordon would provide a spark on offense, too.
I think the defense is being motivated by their anger at the offense.
If we fire Hoke who do you get to replace him? Honestly who would want this team or program that has been going down hill for a decade. Christ Brady Hoke and his coaching staff is the best Michigan could muster last time around.
Some HS coach from a powerhouse
Franklin at Vanderbilt. Just give him however much money he wants. He is running a clean program which has high academic standards and does a good showing against the guys in the SEC.
Vandy went to four bowl games in their history before he arrived and he is taking them to their third in a row.
Hire a PROVEN winner.
"Wellllll I did like the playcalling, We just didn't execute so we gotta go back and work at that this week."
TAKES HIM DOWN AND THROWS HIM BACK AN ADDITIONAL 3 YARDS, GRRRR!!!
Well, if they convert a 3rd and 22 I suppose we really deserve to lose.
I mean even more than we already do.
and damn if they didn't almost do it
I wish we had that timeout right now
Well- they didn't get a first. Cost us a lot of yards though
Nothing will change this year. What a horrible team and offensive team. Horrible coaching by Hoke and Borges. Now we are stuck again until he gets fired and then start again with another coach. 9 years with no Big Ten titles. It has been so long since we had a meaningful game and now it looks like it will be many more years before we are even competitive again. Michigan one of the bottom teams in the Big Ten over the last 6 years? Unbelivable. Unacceptable. Please fire these guys NOW so we can move forward quicker.
Jesus defense - without that penalty they get a first down there!!!!!
Hoke = world's most expensive hand clapper.
Norfleet finally take one to the house
or does it?
we need another 10 yarder...
Lets go motherfuckers!!!
4 and out.
from the future
Well.... if we do score.... they're out of timeouts. So there's that.
You know what would be great right here? Play action of some type! They'll never be expecting it!
They were giving Chesson a 12 yard cushion. Fire it out to him and let him run.
Way to stare him the fuck down!
It's 3rd down. RUN DEVIN!
Don't think Gardner even sees the defenders... amazing considering they're lit up like patriotic christmas trees
Did anyone else see Hoke saying this is someones last game?
NW linebacker play is outstanding today.
catch the fucking ball
Borges bailed out by Gardner
Not so fast, my friend...
Don't play for the FG.... we won't win in OT and no one wants to watch another minute of this game.
lol oh my god how many dropped INTs
What did DG see there? He threw it right in the LBs gut
Just run the QB blast
kick the 57 yarder right now...serious
Gardner should have had about 7 INTs on the day.
Worst possible play ever!!!!
fucking abysmal....FUCK THIS FUCKING SHIT....I'VE HAD A GOD DAMN ENOUGH OF THIS BULLSHIT
Worst thing DG could do there. That sack is killer
ahhahahah, im going insane
This is a joke.
I've lost my mind, AH-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
I don't know how I feel.
This is just crazy.
Oh My God.
WHat is happening?
Is this real life?
what the holy bejesus fuck nuggets on a stick?!?!?!?!
holy christ donkey balls grandma tits
This is ridiculous
he makes that but not a 33 yarder against PSU...probably still gonna lose this.
The worst team in the history of football when it comes to clock management pulls off that shit.
I could hear my neighbor screaming from here with the windows closed
shouldn't have even needed that. Terrible quarterbacking by DG. You CANNOT take a sack there
He pretty much got blindsided. That's on the OL.
No. It was a rollout to the left he tried to cut back to the right. If your reads aren't there throw it away. Live to fight another down. Almost cost us the game
Don't even care anymore. Just love the entertainment.
Early 20's and balding...horribly.
to Wisconsin, lol...
Al Borges appreciation thread is clearly warranted after this incredible offensive performance. How many teams do you know that can score nine points in four quarters of football? This is a masterpiece.
Fuck you with all my might. You're the worst.
Great job Kerridge
Play calling is bad
WE SCORED A TORCHDOWN
Thank you Butt!! DG tried to fuck it up again, but thank heavens for you sir!!
Jake butt-fucking Butt, fuckers!
We got a touch down!
Long hair don't care.
I don't even know just go get Les Miles (never gonna happen)
thank you jake butt, thank you
DG, make this a turning point buddy!!! TD! I don't even remember how to celebrate those anymore.
Stop them. You can do it!!
You're a great fan
Then go cheer for Syracuse if you really think that's going to be a more enjoyable experience
Worst kind of fan.
I don't know. The worst kind may be those who try and defend Borges.
Nah, I always want Michigan to win, regardless of coordinator. Don't misconstrue my statement as a defense of Borges.
It is far from guaranteed that firing our OC will make us better. I'm not a Borges fan, but if we fire him, better be for an upgrade and a significant one at that.
Now its the defenses turn to shit the bed!
fumble the ball already
Did you know Tiebreakers is on after the game?
Are you sure?
Gets paid $4 million to clap his hands.
And recruit like a BAUS!
Both teams want to play at the same end of the field
What are your measurements?
I'm eating Kroger cheeze its rather than real cheeze its. They aren't good
So what do you say, guys? Go for the winning TD, or play for a FG? I say FG. We don't wanna risk anything. We can try to win it in the third OT. That's just smart football.
Was moving backwards at the snap.
But I'm not saying anything.
With this offense there is no way I would ever risk anything.
Good god... I guess as bad as Northwestern has been at interceptions, it only makes sense they'd drop the fumble.
Wow Borges is going to go full on butt-clench now that Funchess almost lost it for us. Not sure I blame him
Ooops meant this elsewhere...
Cmon guys. Fight and get this win
Regroup. Get a breather...
Should've done this in the PSU game.
but this team has played with heart all game long; win or lose, the team really has been inspiring...
I do agree
Playaction hasn't worked all ... Season? Continue to deploy it.
We're only running 3 plays right now. Even though they're playing 9 yards off our WRs.
We were going to run PA again!!
It's 3rd and 8 AL! You're not going to run the ball!
Why were we in the I?
He's the worst EVER! What a fucking idiot.
Nothing more than an average MAC/MWC coach at best.
Wow, I can't believe that call actually got a guy open in the first place, but then to miss the catch.... damn
Gallon has been uncharacteristically terrible this game.
Can't blame Al for that one.
Gallon has to catch it. Gardner has to put a little touch on it.
Don't deserve to win.
Fuck you. This team is fighting to hard to deserve fans like you.
Alright. TD on this damn drive guys. Lets do it
DG did his part, Gallon just biffed that. Should've won the game right there and then
What a physically painful experience, to watch Michigan football.
The announcers point out that we have to go for 2 now, as if anyone's scoring any TDs in this game...
Wow, Gallon. Really, man? Any other night you would've caught that with ease....
Put Gardner put his whole body into that throw. It's raining, that's not and easy catch unless he puts it on your ribs.
Well executed play.
I don't get paid 600k+, but that was obvious. I win.
Gallon would have made that catch had that second half thread not been created. Get em Coach Schiano
Fuck that second half thread and the sell-outs that went there.
I may or may not have gone there last week.
Let's go guys. Getting into a good flow lets make it happen
Yes. Kind of amazing since it's basically two plays. I'll take it right now
My other screen is Auburn Georgia.
That game is crazy too but with touchdowns and shit.
2 plays here to get it. Slam it with Green
Some really inspiring play by Devin!
Alright defense.... make one more stand
YES!!!!! Let's go guys!!!! Let's get this 2 and then stop these fogeys
I called the option play too...it's the only play we run out of the pistol in that situation.
HAS SOMEONE STARTED THE DG APPRECIATION THEAD YET??
I'd like to add he's looking awfully good in that 98 jersey all the sudden...
Option. Called that just ask my girlfriend...no really ask her I'm never right c'mon guys I need this.
Sucks it has to come to this...but I appreciate these guys for giving everything they have.
If someone makes a snowflake thread before the game is over...that person should be banned.
Man, I thought TGordon had ended it
That option was a great call Al is still a fuck but man good call.
BBOOOOOOMMMM GET THE MOTHER FUCK OFF ME!!!
OK, can't possibly blow 4th and 23. Can't possibly. Can't be that cursed...
That's a duck! Catch the ball!
Gordon takes it off the wiener
How the hell did we win this game....
After that missed INT by Gordon there was no clapping by Coach Hoke...
That was bad. But good.
Yes yes yes fuck yes!!!!
Douchebags fans can eat my shorts!!!!
We win. Fire Borges. Way to fight out there players.
Poor Northwestern. We're a miserable lot and all, but shit. Those poor fucks!
Do we celebrate beating 0-5 in the big ten Northwestern in triple overtime?
Yes and you can go fuck yourself
You should probably get off the board. Borges will be expecting his blow job back in Ann Arbor, he'll be disappointed if you aren't there.
I'm not sure why my reply of "yes" to your question "should we celebrate a win over an 0-5 NW Team" turned into me loving Borges? I am no fan of Borges but I am a Michigan fan and will always celebrate a win.
Enjoy the land of mediocrity. I'm happy for the players. The coaching staff still blows. We might have Hand if Borges didn't cost us 2 games this year. Our stinking came at the worst time.
I'm gonna fuck my wife tonight, and I'm going to wait until overtime to score a touchdown.
Just the way she likes it.
What exactly is the touchdown? This says a lot..
..or it didn't happen
way to play!!! It might not have been the prettiest but it was one of the grittiest, GO BLUE!!!
Proud of the players, they fought their asses off. Happy for DG too, way to make plays!
Way to fight Gardner!!! Hoping these overtones are the anti ND pick and turns the tide. 9-3 here we come!!!
Overtones FTW! Son of a autocorrect.
Keep everyone We need to give this staff a chance the team is young and they need to execute better.<-NO
Proud of the players. Disgusted with the coaches.
