That was a face mask!!!!
Outback Bowl Open Thread
Now we got 8 months to be irritable.
To Denard right there. Not even on the field for the last play. Fuck Borges.
You need WRs on the last play. Denard can't run through the entire D.
Is so much better.
You are not smart.
It's about winning the game not creating a sentimental moment. Sorry
How the FUCK can Clowney be the player of the game?!?! He got the best of Lewan on ONE play and was handled the rest of the game! To be the best defensive player in the country, he made two plays.
I guess 2 td receptions and a punt return for a TD doesn't mean shit. Media bjs all around there
Maybe clowneys dick taste good cause there's a whole bunch of fuckers sucking it! Lewan kicked his ass all game!! He should get player of the game before this ass clown!! Overall better team lost on a bad call on the blitz but I'm proud of team 133 thanks to all of you!
To be fair, Gholston has been touted as an AA after tackling three guys a game. Standards are different with guys surrounded by hype.
That said, Clowney is very good. He just wasn't dominant today.
Well, Michigan kept it close.
Thats the difference...
We don't have enough playmakers. Impact guys.
JT Floyd you killed us today. Blake get well soon!
Yes. Damn it JT; this is on you
Cause he let his team down huge today.
Tough loss. Commendable effort. Live to fight another day.
with the dumbass call of the year, why blitz when you can force them to make a 45 yard FG?
Because a sack would effectively end the game or create a Hail Mary scenario. That and not blitzing doesn't guarantee they don't get enough yards for the game winning FG. The blitz sack was close on the previous two plays. It was just a hell of a throw in the nick of time.
Would rather go down being aggressive than playing a soft ass zone and getting picked apart. Plus they had the backup QB in there and the secondary blew the coverage.
It wasn't an all out blitz. Only one came and almost had him.
Everyone was pissed that we played the prevent in the exact same situation and let them get a field goal
Yeah but their kicker was clutch. This one would have been a head case if the game came down to his foot. He shanked one, had one blocked, and if (IF) we held, he would have had to kick from a considerable distance.
Great effort guys. That was a damn good team and they should have won. I hate to say it, but the secondary blew this game time and time again. Seeing Kovacs stand there and let Ellington run right by him for the clinching TD really hurt. Really tough game for Kovacs.
Shane Morris may not be redshirting. DG looked rough today. Daydreaming at times out there. Oh well. C+ season.
I'll give you 100 to 1 odds that this does not happen. There is no way that Morris beats out DG next year for the QB job.
Gardner was a little off today, but over all the games he's started this seems to be the exception, not the rule. Shane will be redshirted.
I think Shane's redshirt depends on the progression of Russell Bellomy
If we dont hire an actual QB coach who only does one thing, and DG's accuracy is still 50/50, shane could win the job. All comes down to footwork and who can make the hard throws. Devin did not do that today.
couldn't get the qb down
couldn't cover the deep ball on the blitz
story of the game
Thanks Denard, Craig, Vince, Jordan and all the seniors. It's been an adventure.
Taylor Lewan should man up and come back!
Please don't comment on a player's manliness...thanks.
As upset as I am right now, some perspective - 5 losses to 4* top 10 teams. Breaks, aside from a few, just did not go M's way. I would say the future looks pretty bright though.
The overall improvement in talent and fundamentals is exciting with this coaching staff.
Tough loss. Hasn't sunk in yet. They all played hard. Can't believe how many big plays we gave up has to have matched our season total.
Just wow unbelieveable.
I wish everybody on the team and all of us fans the best.
Thank you to the seniors and the whole team you played hard.
For those on the team remember this feeling and make it so that you never feel it again next season.
Hard fought game, I'm proud of our boys, thank you for your efforts and being Michigan Men, good luck to the guys moving on in all endeavors
too bad we didn't have a little more time at the end.
Go Blue!!! No matter what
Blame Al Borges! oh wait. . .
As upset as I am right now, some perspective - 4 of 5 losses to top 10* teams and all but one was down to the wire. IMO, the future looks pretty bright.
Kovacs has been one of the best players for Michigan these last few years. One bad play does not negate all he has done. Show some god damned class.
That blitz...if it had gotten there a half second earlier...or if Black can finish his sack....if if if. They were that close, but sometimes it just is not your day.
I for one am proud of the entire team and coaches. What a great effort against one of the best SEC teams this year. Thank you seniors, you will be missed.
With you here. Great game overall. We should have won, but we didn't. Kovacs was one if the guys that helped reshape our defense. And he's played his heart out every game for THE TEAM!!! And he should go down as an all time fan favorite player.
He is the epitome of the RR regime. I'll give him credit for being a leader, but he lacked the physical tools.
I think it is fair to be critical of Floyd. You are right otherwise though.
and the exciting plays. We will be moving into a new era of Michigan football with a pro style QB and offense and a defense that is sound, physical, and aggressive. Please beat Ohio next year.
A good game overall by both teams. Wish our defense is stronger but it's not ours to win today. I'm nevertheless excited about next year!
Please please tell me he will never play again. A sub 6 foot free safety who is SLOW?!?!?!? What the hell were you thinking in recruiting this guy RR??
Calm down and stay away from the Internet for awhile Gordon is a heady player who's not a great deep safety. We've known this for years, it not is today but that is what Wilson, Clark, and Thomas are for. Also who knows maybe LM3 just saw a chance for Hugh quality immediate playing time.
Man, I'm not even going to try to blame anyone this game. It's way too upsetting.
The hardest part of watching the game was listening to the announcers. It was all about South Carolina. Clowney got shut down today other than two plays and the announcers continued to praise him like he was dominating the game. Then they give him the player of the game with 4 tackles?! Lewan won the matchup in my opinion
When Michigan got the first down on the 4th and 1 it was apparent that they were homers when in the next play they exclaim they got at the position they should have got it after the TO. So much for unbias play calling.
