Great game for the fighting Jakes. Only marred by the nine touchdowns and 650 yards rushing put up by opposing QB Jake "Leidner" JakeManziel....
spoiler alert: i linked this
Was this thread realy necessary
Yes. Somebody had to point out the absurdly bad announcing.
"Minnesota brought that jug to Michigan...."
"That's clay from the 1930s."
They were horrible all game. We don't need a history lesson on Gardner after every incomplete pass.
My wife: They can't hear you
Me: But they're talking stupid shit
My wife: They still can't hear you!
Apparently Michigan State coach Jake Yost poisoned the water in downtown Ann Arbor. RIght before the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor. And that's how the Big Black Jug rivalry was born.
Good grief that was bad.
It was the Garmins, duh
to cut the score to 28-13.
Because as Mike Patrick pointed out, had Minny scored a TD, the Gophers would have been within one score, what with the new 11 point Super-TD.
"You don't want to have a turnover with that field position at this point in the game."
5:00min on the clock, Minnesota down 28-13. 15 points is more than a two score game.... I mean, crazier things have happened, but seriously.
But then again...Jakes gotta Jake
Jake Lewang held that trophy up like a boss.
Jake Jakenson from Jakesville! I'm Jake!
Said it in another thread but, I'd have rather had Beth Mowins and Pam Ward tag-team the announcing duties than listen to those jokers.
Wow, dude, that was harsh
1: stupid thread
2: the announcers spread the wealth well, and their QB deserved the hype: he's legit
You are so high. But that's a good thing.
Guy barely accounted for 200 total yards, 1 TD, and a pick-six.
World beater, he is.
Don't forget that fumble!
Add in the fumble and this discussion is over.
smear a different thread.
Go fornicate yourself
Can these guys be our permanent announcers?
I do this
i am pretty tolerant of bad announcers, but i had the game on mute after the first half
I am with you but i just turn it down really low seeing as if I dose off the annoucers getting all hyper will wake me up so I dont miss any of their awfulness
I want more posts about Fat Guy returner.
We need to kick it to the fat guy of the opposing team from now on.
Tshirt idea. "Special Teams Mission: Target the Fat Guy". With a silhouette of a fat guy with a bullseye on him. GOLD JERRY, GOLD!!!
This is the best thread since the 2011 gem that coined coach Gravy Hulk and Denard throwing to Bartholomew Roundtree and Freshman Hemmingway...
complained that MGothreads were not safe for home.
Wow, had no idea you were still around!
Worst part of the game was when Gardner's accuracy was so bad he threw a pick 6 to Countess.
to start about the run game that 3.2 per carry average after 35 runs and 113 yards rushing.
Truth be told, though, Patrick spent way too much time talking up Leidner. Minnesota played not to get blown out, and they got blown out, anyway. Even if the numbers suck, this is what it was.
The biggest number they didn't talk about was the lack of any Michigan turnovers, a first under Gardner. Michigan moved Funches outside and they made their Oline strength a strength when Schofield and Lewan lined up next to each other.
Incase you guys didn't already know, Jerry Kill had a seizure this morning.
Huh? The announcers said they were playing for the Little Brown Jake, IIRC.
It was nice that they mentioned how much Jake Falk cared about the jug.
On another semi-related to the game note, it really burns my lawn that the post-game pressers are by subscription only now.
YPC isn't killer but it seemed to me that was largely bcs. the playcalling in 2nd half was to milk clock. Run on 1st, run on 2nd, throw if necessary on 3rd. Which worked fine, in the end. On pass pro and when the playcalling got creative the new line looked v. good, I thought.
Everything's coming up Jake!
I will say that I am not typically one to gripe too much about the crews that do the call either, but in this case, I am seriously impressed that they did not mention something about how decisely Mitch Leidner would sip his Gatorade. It wasn't good, to be sure.
It's like he studied before the game on how to knock Gardner was ready to pounce on any little mistake.
having phone sex with a male customer? Apparently the customer's wife walked in on her hushand making grunting sounds on the phone.
Did anyone catch the Michigan-Iowa State game today in kinnick stadium? Pam Mowins did the play by play and he was amazing at it.
To find the history of the jug we've been taught is backwards. One of the tv dolts said at the end of the game that Minn had brought water from home, because Michigan couldn't be trusted to supply them with clean water. I wanted the other nimrod to correct him, but I believe he was kissing the Minn qb off camera
Hell of a bartender at a local pub in Bloomington, IL.
Mike Patrick's been horrible going on 20 years now.
Until I read this post I thought I was hearing things... Did you know Maxx is a real match-up problem?
never mind. Go Jake!
I was at the game, so I didn't get to hear the announcers. I'm guessing that they were awful?
Hammer by Keedy Black is a better song than the game the announcers called. YouTube that if you've never spent your time looking up lists of the worst things on YouTube. NSFW/H.
So I'm figuring that the post is suggesting I shouldn't be too upset that ESPN3.com isn't showing the game replay (at least not when I checked).
I also thought this post was going to be about the future of our defense when Jake Ryan is healthy enough to rejoin Countess.
Is how I would describe them... Minnesota fans, is another way. I understand the job of the announcers a lot of times is to take the side of the underdog in these games that everyone knows the outcome of, but today it was way over the top.
Boy I'm glad I didn't have to deal with announcers. Nothing worse
The radio announcers during the game
Wait, Datbull (4 lyfe!) was announcing the game today? I couldn't hear in between all the praise being lavished upon Maxx Liedner
Liedner now named favorite in Heisman race!
So the Minne QB was a pocket passer in HS...then gained weight and became a runner? Gaining weight = more speed I guess? Tebow like...just sayin
Oh I forget how many turnovers Gardner has plz remind me again...and again...and again...
Man that Minne QB is good! I think they found their QB! Yup found they did.
Kill not at game. Seizure. Not at game. Kill not at game. Seizure. Gonna step down ONLY if it effects game day...and only if assistants can't fill in. Gonna do what's best for team if he can't coach in games...unless assistants can fill in. mmm love kill.
Gardner turns ball over a lot...did I mention that?
..was that Mike Patrick didn't even discuss what Miley Cyrus is doing with her life.
Spoken more times than yards he passed for. Ed Cunningham really really loves him some leidner.
is Yon Yonson, I live in Wisconsin, I work in a lumbermill there
So who else missed the hand it to Norfleet and every fan hold their breath as he might make an amazing play plays? I really thought those would have worked late in the first half to pick up the pace after Minny ran the ball 100 times and our offense sat there waiting to get the ball back
