Night games open thread
Just when we were ready to take over TWiS, Nebraska throws at pick at their own 30 in a 21-21 tie game.
Pelini is out. He can take Funk with him out the door.
I am excited to watch Florida State v. Miami. I got a Founders Harvest Ale in the fridge to maybe take some of the sting out of this loss... I wish we could still start up drinking threads...
At least we will probably beat Nebraska next week? I'm looking for anything positive.
Indiana again in the red zone under 1 min
And they blew it
At least we're getting a good SEC fight at the end of the game here in Florida-Georgia. Sheriffs on the field!
Hail Mary time in lincoln
HE GOT IT!!!
Nebraska does a Stewart to Westbrook.
Westercamp = Westbrook.
NEBRASKA WINS ON A HAIL MARY!!! LOL
Today's game stunk. I want Nebraska to lose. I'm tired.
No matter. That play was a reminder that college football is the greatest game ever.
Nebreska winning helps Michigan hurts Sparty badly. Had Nebreska lost the division was basically locked up.
Miami walks into this game tonight a 21-point underdog, and yet, looking at most of these numbers, I find that interesting...

Look at strength of schedule and Miami's performance at home against WF. You know the same team that Syracuse shutout.
Has any coach ever gone from potentail USC hire to 4-5 and 0-5 in the conference?
Kiffen tried. Came close once. I kid. I kid.
Just want to play Grand Theft Auto right now.
Getting ready to watch a real football game in FSU v Miami...
How long has it been since jimbo fisher took over for bowden, and they are just now back to the top of the heap?
Is the time table the same for this michigan program? How much longer?
Not a good comparison.
FSU was struggling as well under bowden, who also had some terrible recruiting gaffes...which jimbo had to correct. Why is it so bad of a comparison?
then Hoke did. FSU's problems stemmed from a decrepit coaching staff who lost the ability to coach. The talent was there for success.
So when hoke went to the sugar bowl and won...the talent was not here?
Do recall that team was a mixture of RichRod and Carr recruits. As we have seen the past two years the RichRod classes have failed to produce enough quality players for UM to sustain that first year of success and the team is having to play freshmen and sophomores as a result.
It also doesn't help that Michigan is getting substandard OL coaching.
FSU had depth issues as well. I am not saying that our situation was as good as theirs was...but the fact still remains that Jimbo has turned the team around, and are back in the NC picture. While we are getting progressively worse.
MSU went 6-7 in MSU's third season under Dantonio. If we are going by records MSU got "progressively worse". But guess what happened in year four? 11 wins. I'm not saying that will happen at UM, but it does show that a drop off is not necessarily a harbinger of bad things to come.
Also, Fisher was Bowden's OC. He was part of the program for a couple of years before he took over as HC. FSU was already running his offense(and recruiting for it)when he took over.
FSU's depth issues were nothing like Michigan's. And they didn't switch from a spread to a pro style offense. Also Fisher was on Bowden staff which means FSU didn't have to go through the who fractured recruiting class because of a coaching change/search thing.
I like the Canes, but I love Winston. This kid is 100% raw fun.
Can someone get jameis Winston some glasses?
What is this sorcery that Florida State is using to move the ball?
FSU is basically a video game.
Hire the O-coordinator from Oklahoma State.
The one the fans wanted fired after their game with West Virginia?
Was just joking. You know with the "Fire Everybody" going around.
Cannot imagine this thread will be busy. Lots of pissed off people like me. I am about to go to bed.
