somewhere in the $5-12,000,000 he's getting per movie.
Open BCS Championship Bowl Game Thread
AH. Now we now the cost of dignity.
wings game is streaming for free on yahoo sports. watch two games at the same time! is a sports menage a trois!
'Bama fans are partial to Richardson anyways.
If the BCS is going to be on ESPN next year does that mean Pam Ward calls one of the games?
How can they call that one and not the other?
That's PI? Are you kidding? Atleast make the game fair for Texas, that's the least you could do after they lost McCoy/
You have got to be kidding me on the PF instead of holding.
What are these phantom calls.
Looks like we might be able to add "Pays off refs" to the list of dirty things Saban does. I mean if you're going to let those two calls slide on the Texas drive, you can't exactly turn around and nail Texas for some mutual pushing and shoving.
he tackled to hard and his helmet came off
Thought the ref was striking up a game of paper scissors rock
for trusting his kicker who I swear has been on the team since the week of Mike Price.
Had the distance...
I had something cool to say but Sam Adams and a week full of summary judgment made me forget it... bastards...
Watch out for the makeup calls heading Texas' way this drive.
im hopin for em.
Well there's one..offsides Bama.
I feel bad for McCoy.
I feel bad for everyone that hates the SEC hype.
Under statement of the century.
I got the impression colt couldve gone in but they wanted to protect his shoulder for his pro career
Gilbert has got to get way lower on a sneak. But no matter...
this officiating crew is the reward for the Employee of the Month at the greater Pasadena TGI Friday.
also, the Orange Bowl was the coldest ever.
Is Alabama even trying to over Shipley?
...evidently not so much.
I need Bama to win by 3 or less and I win my bowl pool
What kinda weird bowl pool you got going there cowboy?
It's margin of victory and I thought it was going to be total points so I chose the score to be 27-24 Bama. But the guy who ran it decided to do margin of victory and I'm tied with another guy who chose the margin to be 4 and someone else who picked Texas and would win outright. So I'm limited to Bama winning by 3 or less.
Shit. We got a game!
gilbert > mcelroy
if longhorn receiver didn't have dropsies it'd be a much different ballgame
Shipley is the player of the game if they some how pull this out. Tide is turning?
Saban better dial up the run game to run out the clock.
Somebody better help loosen Ingram up and get him back in this game ASAP!
Here goes Musberger with the "Growing up before our eyes" crap again...on noes!
"growing up before our eyes" - Brent used also that line in reference to Pryor during the Rose Bowl.
Hey look what happens when you catch the ball. I love when a former Quarterback can't see that everyone is dropping dead on strikes, but when they start making catches "Alllll of the sudden he play's like a seasoned vet!" No, how about, 1 of 5 players is doing what theyre paid to go to school for.
dude....did Tate transfer* and put on a Gilbert jersey?
*my bad had to be said.
Jeez, Gilbert looks like he'll be a good starter for UT for a few years.
i dont think we'll have to worry about being drowned in pryor hype, we'll be drowned in gilbert hype
gilbert needs to work on his release. its too long, stretches too far back. he's gonna get the ball stripped way too much like that.
You have got to be kidding me. Saban has played Carr-ball all 2nd half and now look. Well, if anyone has the RB to hold on and wind down the clock it's Alabama.
That was a big 2 pt conversion in Vegas.
Football is a funny game. Gilbert is clearly looking for Shipley on every play and it still works. You'd think Bama might try doubling him.
Oh how I missed Lloydball. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. I hope this completely backfires on Saban. You NEVER let a team just hang out and put on the brakes.
we've got ourselves a game. Hook em!
may well be time for saban to give Gump the nod for a change of pace
I have been thinking that all night.
WOOOOO TEXAS FIGHT BABY HOOK EM HORNS!!!!!!!
I'm calling the Heisman jinx for a fumble.
the texas defense is swarming. the momenergy is about to shift...
Ingram is the only reason why I'm not rootin like hell against Bama. God I hate the SEC.
Also, Muckleroy is an awesome name...especially against a QB named McElroy.
Why root for Ingram? Dude has Spartan blood.
Kid's got heart, moves and an awesome story. He's the best thing to happen to Flint since its GM days.
He's a Michigan kid and all around seems like a good, humble player and person. He can't have that much Spartan blood in him if he was smart enough to stay the hell out of the abyss of fail that is MSU.
Muschamp will make a good head coach?
Yes, but it'll take forever for Mack Brown to leave so that he can prove himself.
See Bo Pellini.
Jim, you've been around long enough to know that great defensive coordinators are almost a shoe-in to be great HC's.
Strange place to use a timeout, Mack.
That's 40 seconds saved. You have some control of the clock on offense.
3 minutes for Gilbert to possibly become a legend.
I love college football. Plus the Taco Bell Denise commercial is playing right now. Could things get any better?
Hook 'em Horns!
anyone else notice the SEC speed advantage? nor do I.
They only need a FG. I'm thinking it might be too much for the freshman.
alright gilbert. time to channel your inner elway.
Jinx by Herbie FTW!
Satan must have slid Herbie a few bucks for that. On another note that we as Michigan fans know so well, Freshman giveth and Freshman taketh away.
I don't think Peyton Manning was hanging onto that one.
I lay the blame on that one at his feet.
If that fumble's legit, game over. It is; game over.
not really.. 3 minutes is a lot of time.. they can hold them to a FG here.. or they can recover an onside kick after scoring
nice job Herbstreit...
What was with the blocking assignments there. The guy was lined up to come in untouched. The LT just slide down the line. Weird.
If bama scores a TD its over, but if Texas can hold, they still have a chance.
At least it got entertaining. Got to give it to the Alabama D. They came up huge when they needed it most.
Good thing you were on the West Coast, eh? ;-)
If you don't get it on 3rd down, do you go or kick on 4th?
I'd go for it on 4th if I'm bama and it comes to that.. if you don't get it.. they have 99 yards to go for the score
Is it too soon to start the UM-UCONN open thread?
hold them to FG and maybe there is a chance. Maybe.
And this has been and will be said a million times, but WTF with Texas not taking a knee to the end the half?
But would Alabama have gone into such an offensive shell if not for that play?
Ok I really, really hate the AT&T commercials. Much more so than any of the Verizon map commercials. And whatever happened to that Alltel loser?
but the Verizon mocking "there's an app for that" commericials are sooooooooooooooo much worse.
Truth but they probably just stole that from AT&T/iPhone b.s. commercials. I'll just go w/ Sprint and their extremely less obnoxious marketing campaigns.
Longhorn turnover returned for a TD would be cool if only to see Saban's head asplode
Dad is a criminal. Why does anyone hope he was able to watch the game?
His dad obviously made some mistakes, but that doesn't make him any less human or any less worthy of being able to watch what could possibly be the biggest moment in his son's life.
He's a criminal but he's still a proud dad.
Constant touch from the lock-up? Shut up, Brent!
What a clutch performance by the Bama D on that last play...damn.
and the Frosh.
But this thing is over.
Texas haters rejoice!!!
In my perfect world a lot of the talk tomorrow will be how close Saban came to blowing this game. There will also be TCU dance team girls riding around on unicorns.
and here come the ess eee cee chants..
.. I'm hoping for some sort of miracle..
That should about do it.
That poor kid Gilbert. I hope he gets over this.
Why is bama still running plays? They've won the game.
Oh ok, just to be dicks.
What do you expect it's Nick Saban
To everyone who's participated in all the bowl threads, BCS, New Year's Day, Sparty Nooooooo, pr otherwise, before you go - thanks. You've made the season of a bowllessness for Michigan a lot funner.
Same time next year? With a difference...the bowl WE go to.
Next year we all PHYSICALLY go to our bowl game together and have our own MGoSection.
I'll be there when we get there. I was before, and we will again.
In honor of Mark Ingram's studly performance tonight.
I haven't heard any Dayton Family in a while!
"Don't Hate the Playa, Playa, Hate the Game." -MC Breed, (RIP)
LMAO they almost knocked Saban the f*** out!
keep it classy nick satan..
why not take a knee?
LOL! Saban catches the cooler upside his head!
Pink is a good look on Saban.
Red Gatorade, white shirt, bad combo.
bama just earned two scholarship slots after that gatorade bath
Some of their JUCO prospects in their JUCO farm system are thrilled!
Hell ya C.Wood.
Jesus. No breaks.
is pretty much universally despised around these parts - but as a UM fan I'm glad he is no longer at MSU. He is a hell of a coach.
lol.. Dantonio has had more success against us in the same amount of time..
anyone with half a brain can be successful at the places Saban has been successful.
Uh...tell that to Jerry DiNardo, John L. Smith (and every other Spartan coach from the past two decades), and Mike Shula. Les Miles can pretty soon be added to that list of dunces.
ummm.. Saban was never successful at State..
He beat us twice in 5 seasons.. and only had 1 season above mediocrity... and didn't even finish that one..
There's a reason why I said "half a brain." Les Miles is borderline retarded..
When you say hell of a coach, do you actually mean a coach from hell?
he got outcoachd left and right... what are you talking about?
-actually, please don't try to explain
To quote our president on this one: "He's a Jackass."
That last touchdown just oozed class. That, and his trademarked "oversign and cut" tradition.
Saban isn't even happy.
Rammer Jammer chant doesn't fit in Cali, guys.
Saban should catch all sorts of heat for that last touchdown. They could have run out the clock. No need for that.
I was praying Colt would say "I would've given my first born child"...damn!
Colt was classy in defeat. That was pretty cool to see.
edit: The classiness, not the defeat.
Classy, classy kid.
Can have Denise.
I'll take Lisa Salters.
Feel bad for Colt in that postgame interview...
Dr. Pepper exec making the hook 'em horns sign. That, or he's a devil worshiper.
And then I noticed his name was like Richard Dickcock or something like that.
I knew there was a reason I've never liked that flowery-tasting swill.
Was there a guy on the stands giving the hook em' horns standing in front of all of the Alabama players?
Saban doesn't have time for this shit.
...he's got souls to steal...
He just walked off the field to video conference with a promising 15 year old linebacker from Mobile.
Did Saban just say his players "sold out"?
what just happened???? defensive player of the game pulling a rhodes scholar moment
Where will Saban end up next? He's quickly becoming a Larry Brownish vagabond in D1 college football.
Wil be back in the NFL within 18 months.
He looks like he hasn't taken a shit in 18 months.
I had to chuckle at Ingram referring to Bama as an "organization" and not a program. Good analogy.
BTW, what's the point of having a detachable trophy? Isn't it more likely to get broken that way?
