to play football, not to play trumpet
Michigan vs. Ohio State Game Open Thread
I'm here. I'm ready. go blue!
Beat those fuckers,
Sorry about the language. I'm just pumped up.
no fucking problem.
Beat Ohio! clap clap clap Beat Ohio!
We have a huge opportunity and this team is going to take it.
Waiting for my buddies to show up and can't stop pacing. I keep finding myself in a different room in my house wondering "what was I going to do?" Can't wait for this game. Beat Ohio.
I give Urban's disdain for Michigan 4 fakes out of 5.
His disdain for Michigan is more creation than reality. He had Michigan in his contract out-clause.
Real hatred, sure.
a bit forced. He even included a geography lesson for those who weren't quite sure.
are not sure.
Urban Meyer hates Michigan so much that while he coached at Florida, he had a clause in his contract to allow him to resign with out penalty if the Michigan head coaching job opened up and he was hired.
Did anyone watch Gameday and see the ohio players jawing at Michigan and bumping into them as they ran onto the field? Guess they aren't willing to give up the thug moniker so easily. Urban can't control his team.
No brainer Donovan? Thanks for justifying all the reasons I hate soccer
a bunch of classless turds.
Ironic that Fowler would say we didn't know the Michigan receivers names, and then refers to Roundtree as Ray
make their uniforms look even worse ... if that's even possible.
Hopefully, they'll channel their inner-Sparty.
this whole game comes down to michigan in the red zone. If we can score touchdowns OSU will get curbstomped. Conversely every feild go we kick today is one step closer to a loss.
I know its a simple way to put it, but it is true.
Go Blue, Beat Ohio!!!!
Little known fact: Michigan is north of Columbus, and is a school.
Simon is out.
Yup. Good for us.
I just heard on ESPN gameday that meijer said he would give rings to his players if they finish undefeated. That is ridiculous to me! I almost hope its a rules violation, lol.
I hate ohio so much!
Ah. The color of money
Corso picked Ohio...Victory is at hand!
What's up with the pot leaves on their helmets?
26-23 OSU...Michigan bounces back and smacks an SEC team in the Outback bowl while I gorge myself on a blooming Onion! Go blue!
Michigan "D" in a big way!
line I've heard today. Local TV here in hell talking to Tressel about the (dis)honor of the 02 Suckeye team during the game today. He said, "we can all get together, spin some yarn, tell some lies about it."
What does Landon Donovan have to do with this?
Sounds like gameday is at the USC library
(Although I suppose it is 9 am there)
Slate gray sky, snow flurries blowing around . . . this is what it's all about.
Stuff those cooler poopers!!
Beat Ohio! It's on now.
JT Floyd needs to find his inner Woodson today, and let it out
IM GETTIN' SWEATY-NERVOUS JACKED UP RIGHT NOW
Spielman. Great. Should be real neutral.
Shit. Time to watch on mute?
How do they allow this?????????
Can't wait to drink up Spielman's tears!
I love Norfleet.
Spielman FU@& ---espn is a four-letter word
Spielman calling the game + the sight of the Toilet Seat = Me listening to this on the radio.
You've gotta be kidding me with Spielman...At least they could have matched Griese up with him, keeping the PBP but making a 3-man booth.
Spielman is literally wearing rose colored glasses.
Did anybody think those helmets looked more shiny than normal? look at the blue
Radio by my ear to overpower tv commentary.
Well this could be ugly!
Let's hope it's the last one.
He is so bad
Nearly the same offensive play calls as last year and Michigan isn't ready.
Not surprised at all.
Go away you Lay down Larry, you only post when Michigan is losing or the basketball team is only up by 10.
Is the right guard or center jumping early, it seemed like it the last 2 plays there.
Exact same as last year..
Waaaaaay too easy. Come on man.
Worst start we could have.
Why is there always a wide open receiver? /cry
Dammit. Poor showing Defense. Let's tighten it up and get this thing back
Magnus was right.
CAN I PANIC NOW???
It's going to be a long emotional day. The defense will step up. We need to score lots of points today.
That is it.
Let's at least give DG and Denard a possession before the panic sets in...
I'm getting a bad feeling about this game already...hopefully its just indigestion
Floyd needs to line up about 40 yards deep next time. Smith didn't even make a move yet and Floyd turned all the way around, showing his back to Miller, and getting beat.
This game could be 100-99 the way it's going. No defense for either side.
So that's why we love Denard
Unfortunately, Floyd had to take full responsibility for the big play.
DENARD IS STILL GOOD YOU GUYS
O yea Lace is ready!
They still can't handle Denard, no matter what position he plays.
A quick 7 would help...quiet the heathens at Ohio Stadium.
I am interested to see G Mattison adjustments
Gallon was open there...
Ohio's secondary is going to be open for business all day.
I mean dammit.
A Boren...of all players. Kill me now.
We need a stop.
This looks like Bama all over again.
Can somebody please ban this dumbass?
He's not even a funny troll.
it's easy to ignore idiots.
I desperately want UM to whip their ass, but this has been a terrible start. Michigan plays like crap on the road. If they keep playing like this they will get their ass kicked.
It's trolling. You you turn so fast, maybe it's best you watch the games "alone."
Taylor Lewan just got beat so bad by a true freshman.....
There goes his draft stock
Taylor Lewan is a top 10 pick?
We need to weather this 1st qtr.
There we go. Get the ball back and move it down the field.
Thank goodness we got some pressure. LET'S GO!
Get the ball back and hang onto it.
Edit: or commit a completely needless penalty. Sigh. Take me away, Jane Seymour.
What is reynolds doing...that was so obvious
Joe Reynolds - what were you thinking????
Stupid ass penalty, and horrible punt coverage.
Please be so...
Is this gonna be a 1000 stupid mistakes game? Jesus thats an easy call. And if you're gonna block in the back at least actually block him.
OH MY GOSH. Don't freaking hit the dude in the back. How much worse is it going to get? Worst block in the back I've ever seen. What in the world was he thinking?
O-line has been poor so far (as expected), whereas defense has stepped up in the last possession. Go BluE!
If you can see the nameplate DON'T TOUCH HIM!!
Why is everyone so negative? Stop acting like ohio fans and support the kids.
Your a miserable little man aren't you?
Blocking in the back is the most ignorant thing you can do. Never understood it, such an easy concept to grasp. Yet, highly educated players and pros still do it!?
..by Reynolds but did he really even hit him?
Shut up, Lebron.
My nerves can't handle this. I need to see a touchdown here or my breakfast is coming back up all over my laptop.
We're not playing the Hurricanes....
I'm at work all I have is espn.com
What did lbj say or do ?
Go Bucks beat Michigan or something to that effect.
Where is the pi?
Looks like the fix is in. Obvious pass int.
Roy's lanky ass lookin like Anthony Carter! TD!!!
Hell fucking yes!Great block by Dileo!
Here we go.
Roundtree/Dileo slot ninja alliance!
There you go RAY!
TREEEE!!!! He has been so money.
Mattison adjustments + DG's cannon
nice play call and execution....TOUCHDOWN
Touch Down MICHIGAN!
Devin is a much better passer than Miller and is elusive too.
Spielman calling the game like he is doing OSU radio. Gave Michigan no credit for thrashing OSU "great D". What a joke ESPN.
Now we're talking. OSU's defense looks terrible when Lewan makes his blocks. And Michigan is tightening it up on defense. Horrid start, but it's certainly looking better.
Time to quiet the crowd.
Keep containing him. No more big plays.
Thank God cause our CBs aint getting it done right now
Miller looks a little slow, or the turf is slippery.
I can't wait for Blake to be back.
His services are much needed. I don't care about this #1 pass defense stuff . . .
Me neither, Michigan has some weaknesses in the pass D.
Didn't like the 3 man rush.
We need a pass rush or he won't miss a pass all game.
Gotta blitz on all 3rd and longs. Too much time.
We drop a ton of guys on a 3 and 14 and the dude is still wide open? Just stay deep and let him get it in front of you! It's the small things that are killing us.
Can't leave somebody wide open past the marker on 3rd and 15.
Avery played the wrong route
Yup, gotta protect the marker there, let them catch it in front of you.
So many of their WRs are wide open.
They're screaming about "the small mistakes killing us." It's universal.
If I didn't want a virus I'd look over at 11W b/c for sure they are lamenting how they should be up 21-0 and how their secondary is "terrible"
Get off the field D!
There we go.
Still don't like how much time we're giving Miller to throw, but good coverage there.
Bend, but don't break.
Good stop, but we need to get more pressure on Miller. He's not a great passer, but if he can sit there all day he can be effective.
Should have been off the field on 3 & 14.
Lots of points are going to be scored. We need to keep scoring touchdowns to win.
I can't believe the change in these guys from a couple of years ago.
One thing that has been both really obvious and frustrating in this rivalry the past 10 years or so is that OSU's DB's have been significantly better than ours by a large margin. They always seem to do defend our recievers better, tackle better, close to the football better, and just generally be bigger and faster. Whereas their recievers seem to be often open by larger margins and we don't stay with recievers or close to the football with our DBs as fast. Our last reciever to really be able to handle their DBs with ease was Braylon. But, we haven't really had anyone in that mold for a while with his size and talent. This has always been very obvious and frustrating to me. And, by the fact that they have Burrows and Woodard, both over 6' tall, both over 185 lbs, and probably both more highly rated than anyone we get, this trend will continue for at least another 3 years. For some reason this in particular bothers me.
An uninjured Blake Countess is better than anyone they have.
And let's wait until Burrows and Woodward actually play before declaring they'll be better.
Jourdan Lewis is no slouch either.
That wasn't intended to be a knock on us, we have recruited well in that area. But, our guys just don't seem to be quite to the level as theirs. Our fast and higly skilled guys either seem to be short, under 5'10", or small under 180lbs. None have the combination of height and size, none are 6" plus and 185 plus. And, I don't remember the last time we were able to land a top position player outside of our region like Woodard.
We have some good DB's coming it. We'll fix that.
We are playing disciplined D. Trying not to let Miller beat us with his legs.
I can't mother effing believe Tressel is allowed nonetheless will be honored at this game. Blows my mind.
NCAA is such a joke that OSU is laughing at them on national TV.
Ohio fans still think the program did nothing wrong. I'm sure the stadium will erupt when Tressel takes the field
It would suck, but I could see it. But this is their last game of the season BECAUSE OF HIM!
Especially since an undefeated OSU team has no shot at the NC, BECAUSE OF HIM.
What could be more Buckeye?
Karma. Irony. All that good stuff.
Lets honor him by beating the piss out of his team
Are they that afraid of Norfleet?
But it's nice to see things finishing well for Roundtree in his senior season. He deserves it.
Given we don't have anyone running the ball well (save Denard) how do we keep running play action and getting teams to bite?
Maybe it's instinct for LBs and is hard to just turn it off?
Yeah, that Waggle should have been used up weeks ago.
I don't know about you guys but I'm buying a ticket to Zero Dark Thirty.
I mean it Looks good. Just hope it's not another Act of Valor. Ugh that movie was unbearable to watch.
I expect to see Robinson unleash a long pass to a wide open Dileo or Gallon for a TD before the game is over.
I prefer Devin throw all the passes in this game
has to play tighter, they are giving them too much room underneath. And wow the pass rush is almost non-existant. We need Campbell and Roh to make a difference today.
To all those nay-sayers that we're getting crushed...SCREW YOU we're in this until the end!
Have a little faith in the team and the coaches.
What pieces of garbage Ohio State fans are.
It seems like the D is trying to build a wall around Miller and keep him boxed in, kind of how teams play Lace.
Great poise by Gardner.
That was an awful call
Wow PI on O.
That was a shit call!
Roughing the kicker and Michigan's ball
Horrible play calling
Wow that's some bullshit, no way that's pass interference.
Take that refs.
That's what you get you bullshit ref assholes.
That's the breaks we need.
Well, that's one way to move the ball upfield. :)
Yeeaaaahhh. That was a bs penalty. If they'll call that then they can blow the whistle on every play.
Is that Dileo's first drop of his career?
Where's the threat dropped the ball.
In other news, refs throw make up flag.
I saw no make up flags. I saw lots of brutality from the OSU knuckleheads.
Instead of a fullback by everyone, would we have recruited him, and saved ourselves a bunch of made up whining?
Nice run by Denard!
Does your team have any discipline?
Need to take advantage of their mistakes. Have to score here.
Why don't we ever give Hopkins a carry?
"Fred Jackson told me yesterday that Vincent Smit is the toughest running back he has ever coached!" Of course he did!
Yeah TD MEEEEEESHIGAN!
TOUCHDOWN LET'S GO!
I love it.
Suck it, Spielman.
Come on defense, get the ball back. Keep the momentum going.
Typical ohio fans, cheering for the man whose actions are currently preventing them from possibly playing in the Big Ten Championship or the BCS... I have so little respect for that inbred, short-sighted fanbase it is remarkable. They really are a bunch of fools who support a cheating system, a cheating coach, and a cheating team.
Complete lack of discipline. The hallmark of so many Meyer-coached teams. Rough the punter, rough the passer. Keep it up, boys.
Way to keep contain!
Kovacs needs to make tackles... Couple of key misses
Miller is trying real hard to make something happen on the ground.
How many false starts is that?
Get down boy
Is that you Alan Branch?
There we go baby!!!
Untouched, Miller is shook!!!
GREAT hit Frank!
Oooh weeee gotdamn Frank!
Hell ya you see that Ohio that's our Glenville kid!
Clark with the BOOM
How did Miller not fumble on that hit????
No idea, I think he went into shock and the muscles tighten up.
But credit to Miller for even hanging on to that ball.
I agree, with that hit I was surprised that the ball did not come close to coming out.
now that Frank Clark is getting sacks?
Frank Clark baby.
Put the hurt on him! Stay down Miller, you're gonna get hurt out there!!!!!!!!!!!!!
.....brax got WAXXED!!!!!
Just stay down, Braxton. More hits like those are on the way.
.....brax got WAXXED!!!!!
Just gave me a headache...in Alabama!
Let's fucking go! I'm going to keep drinking to help our boys.
This needs the gif treatment STAT.
One kickass play every game. Usually in the 4th when it matters most.
Miller got his I dotted there
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FRANK CLARK MY GOD PAIN TRAIN IS COMING WOOOO WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!11111

Anybody but a Boren come on oline!!!
Devin did a great job holding on to the ball.
Boren making plays < Ohio win. I hate that family.
Not to mention he's a converted linebacker. That shit is embarrassing on more than one level.
Oline getting embarrassed! I used to worry about losing 4 out of 5 starters, but they have sucked so bad this year, who even cares anymore.
Stupidest comment ever. They just said the o-line is number one in the country in pass protection.
The TEs failed to pick up a delayed blitz on the play that prompted your comment.
Alright Devin time to get rid of it quicker because you're not going to get Braxton time.
Damn gotta chip better than that.
Wow, we got away with that.
Definitely face mask, Michigan got away from it. Make-up call on the horizon.
Oline please do something and stop embarrassing yourself. I suggest throwing more short route and challenge OSU's secondary.
Now we gotta worry about the makeup call.
Michigan's D needs another stop here.
ohio has adjusted on defense. Time for Borges to adjust for next series. This is going to be a stressful two and a half quarters.
Please get us off the field again D.
Run game and we win hands down. Love Mattison but adjustments need to be made
I'll settle for a turnover.
defense getting gashed
Wow Miller is scary. He wants to run sooo bad.
Ohio is running the same play over and over for big yards.
Getting gashed up the middle. What's ping on?
Urban owning Mattison.
This is a battle. Just because this drive has seen the HB dive/draw success for 6 yards a pop doesn't mean Meyer is owning Mattison. Our D has been in pretty good position all game
Just got pwned
Wow, just terrible defense on that series. Absolutely gashed.
