Great game for the fighting Jakes. Only marred by the nine touchdowns and 650 yards rushing put up by opposing QB Jake "Leidner" JakeManziel....
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
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
yes, absolutely necessary. It was that bad. Guys, did you know he was a pocket passer in hs? Thought they would mention that fact along with the same 3 others all game long. hmm...
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.
