This has been a great game so far, two teams playing like it's a bowl game...
Nebraska/Michigan game thread
a guy that's there to compete and win...
Denard looks better than he has all Big Ten season
I know it's been said they were a top tier team but I haven't seen too much (not that I follow them too closely) but they came to play today
should be a good one....GO BLUE,BABY!
Martinez looks the prized pupil of the Uncle Rico School of quarterbacking. Look for him to throw it over the closest mountain soon.
Like that d!
it sounded like the band was playing the fight song faster than usual; the crowd is loud, it sounds like a great environment for the game...
Spielman seems kind of aggressive with his, uh, 'playcalling'; didn't he call out Coach Meyer with that 'so you'd take Robinson out of the game?'
They typically do the early B1G game on ESPN together every week...and theyre horrible
They seem to clash
Really? Spielman is awful but I really enjoy Meyer.
I think it may just be my extreme hatred in Spielman's commentary that casts such a large cloud over the entire booth
I think you have to consider he's a football player commenting on a game, versus just some guy commentating...
So was this really something that could not have been said in the LiveBlog?
As the resident MGoBlog Post Nazi, there should be at least one open thread for the game. Not everyone wants to be a part of the late term abortion known as the LiveBlog
With me out of it? Serious question
Couldn't tell you, haven't looked at it since the game started.
Was this a thread that you probably could have ignored and just stayed in the live blog?
second bar you can go to...
Okay, tribute to Internet memes at half. Sexy saxophone guy is up now. Greatest thing ever.
Open threads are also more smartphone friendly.
the playcalling, denard running at times as an option instead of forcing the pocket passer thing...also, the defense continues to impress, geez even Coach Hoke might agree we deserve to be ranked...
is dominating in every statistical category. Too bad the scoreboard isn't reflecting it.
For most of the game that scoreboard hasn't been reflecting anything ;)
now we need to make them pay for it!
That could be big...
One thing I do like seeing with Nebraska is they'll hit you but they help you up right after. Respect
it's hard to dislike these guys. I'll give it time...
it could be a long game for that young man...
PI call, UM definately been on the wrong side of that deal this season.
Molk is like a highly mobile tree trunk. Did anyone see denard run into him about 3 plays ago?
Chris Spielman is an intellectual lightweight.
our defense is 'fo realz! Nice block on that kick...
That dude is really coming into his own...
we need to put the Huskers away here!
Jackson! Dang it.
Hopkins was locomoting! GET OUT OF MY WAY!!!
Woah Fake! Hoke RULZ!
Lloyd Brady sighting
Lloyd Brady sighting
If coach Hoke and coach Carr are standing next to each other is that also a Lloyd Brady?
I love Brady Hoke! What a gutsy call!
I'm 99.7% sure lloyd Brady was doing the dougie.
My grandma just pointed out Lloyd Brady
I actually have to agree with Speilman on this one, he should of used his feet...
Wile to punt from now?
iso triple option?
we may need one more TD to deliver the deathblow.
it doesn't help we keep getting this poor field position. we don't need to be giving the Huskers hope...
scoring play by Nebraska, the 'option-pitch', lol...
no kidding the triple option.
What's with Hagerup having such an awful season?
he was money last year.
Punting against the wind. Had a great punt with the wind earlier.
The last three yrs will forever haunt me. Two td lead heading into the fourth quarter with the ball and I am nervous as hell.
don't blow it!
Lol he barely touched him!
nice acting job
Is he there or not? Fitzgerald Touisant! Man has wiggle
Butchered his name
the keyboard. Speilman is comparing him to Barry Sanders; I think that's a bit too much, but Fitz, definitely has some effective lateral motion...
at the very least it changes the field position...
put this away right here right now.
to Koger...love my te involved in the game.
Great to see Odoms getting involved.
what a TD!
Tay Odoms Fan Club starts today.
9-2 Denard > Rainbows
So happy for odoms and denard and everyone else playing so well! I just wish hopkins had gotten to keep his td.
That's a TD boys.....wow nice throw...great catch
That was a NFL worthy catch right there, good job.
Great play and all but Denard does know he's NOT supposed to throw into double coverage, doesn't he? :)
crap. Another TO.
are we going to get a kicking game? Please dear God make it soon.
Edit: How is this trolling? We haven't had a kicking game for years and we still don't. It's been one of the most glaring deficiencies for this team the last few years next to the defense. Thanks to Mattison the D has been righted yet the kicking game issues remain. I, as a Christian, am pleading that the time until this issue is remedied be short. Or is it that this board has become so PC sensitive we can't use the Lord's name?
I don't understand, this run-run-pass thing is NOT going to work when you don't have confidence in your QBs arm.
Denard's thrown for as many TDs as Tom Brady, but he's NOT Tom Brady. You can't expect run-run-pass EVERY fricking time to work.
What happened to the Minnesota gameplan? Why can't we throw a short route? Have we throwing a slant all game?
oh wait, anotherr turnover, we get a do-over!
You can't expect Denard to be able to pick up those 3rd and 10s when you're trying to sustain a long drive and kick the clock. It's football. What did I say that was trolling?
We are winning 38-17 against a team tied for first in the division. Shut up.
EDIT: 45 now
It's stil a 3 and out when you want to control the ball...
I don't care if we're up 100-0 playing against the NE Patriots or Huron High School.
I'm SURE Coach Hoke and the Michigan players want to play 60 minutes of football.
Why do you make yourself watch football? You obviously don't enjoy it if you're finding things to get pissed about in this game.
Are you kidding me? I'm loving this throttling...WELCOME TO THE BIG EFFING TEN HUSKERS!
Just because I want to see us play 60 minutes of football and see us play well and execute doesn't mean I'm not enjoying this. LOVE IT! GO BLUE!
The cheerleaders are gonna keep warm doing all those flips. :) 38 of them and counting.
EDIT: 45 and counting.
Fitzgerald ladies and gentlemen.
have been solved...bring on the Buckeyes!
It needs to be said! Hello Michigan "D"
I like the numbers on the helmets...
with last years o...would have been playing in the nc game.
when if we,infact,had a d last year we would have been playing for a nc?
Why are you trying to start that argument all over again?
Wow the improvement of everyone at every position has been amazing! I love these coaches!
I was expecting improvement, but this year is awesome. BCS or not, 2012 will be epic.
- Denard Robinson's "WE EATIN!"
- Greg Mattison's tittie bounce
- And of course...Lloyd Brady going nuts in the stands...
I would love to see the Mattison clip set up against R. Kelly's "bounce bounce bounce bounce" from Ignition Remix.
....bounce, bounce, bounce...
has exceeded my expectations, Iowa game aside. Beating tsio would be icing on the cake of a great season.
This has been fun. The stadium was in attack mode all day. Nice prelude to the game.
Holy war paint van slyke...
Glad to see the subs in though!
You know its a good day when big will Campbell gets a sack
game boys. Bring on tsio!
This victory Makers is going to taste extra-sweet.
huskers flaws. Def coaching also...GO BLUE!
they played hard, with confidence, they played GOOD.
Bring on the Buckeyes...
What the hall happened?
ManBall is what happened!
I really didn't see us losing this game, but no doubt whose team was better today.
I will pat myself on the back for predicting on this board before the season started that Mattison was a huge hire and would turn your D around this year.
See you next year in Lincoln, Go Big Red!
Everything (almost) went our way today. That was nice. Next week will be tougher. STOMP OHIO!
Before the season started I didn't think he could stay healthy to have any impact for us. He's been huge as the season's come to a close.
What a game! I can't wait to see U of M smash the buckeyes! What do you do with a buckeye? You eat it!
...and then you shit it out the other end.
