We didn't need that
Outback Bowl Open Thread
2pt try no good, up 22-21
Denard the play before
It's ok good try.
Gorgeous Al is throwing the kitchen sink at SC.
Is he really?
Is gonna be really good next year, his inexperience is the only thing holding him back
He's missing wide open recievers. But, hopefully the pass rush has something to do with that. I think he'll be good next year too, but he hasn't passed that well today.
We've had the ball 31 min. They've had it for 13.
Keep Devin dinking and dunking on passing plays less than 15 yards. Keep running Denard.
Throwing jump balls to your 5'8" receiver should not work nearly as well as it does for us.
Jeremy wishes he was 5'8"
We're playing well.
Wonshder Whatsc Lou Hotzsch is schaying now
Sorry if I'm late to the party. How many yards does Denard need to pass the rushing yards record?
How many more yards does denard need to pass pat white?
Has 79 rushing yards so far
He needs 8 more yards
Jeremy is Megagallon.
Gotta let him run!
Seems like a real stand up guy
where SCar had the ball deep in their territory and espn decided to do an expose' interview with Lattimore and we completely had no idea what the penalty they called on us before that big QB run for them before they missed the FG
To the guy who was worried about his new lady thinking he had anger issues...I've been with my gal a long time and we were joking about my anger issues after that BS call and not knowing and not caring about what Lattimore had to say
Get one right here, put 7 more up, and then ride the defense to the W
What's Denard's rushing total up to now?
Time for the D to stop the big plays!
We're gonna win this game
Did that just say 1st and goal? Lol.
Haven't heard his name all day
Limited ability will do that
From their own 17 yard line? Silly ESPN accuracy is for real sports networks.
I do not like Frank Clark being held so much.
Courtney Avery has been playing better than I believe some of us expected to day. Kudos
First gotta get a stop, somehow.
Time to go all Mattison on them.
My bad y'all
How are they that goddam wide open??!???!!!
We can't keep rushing 3-4. Get some pressure on the QB!
That is all.
Come on D!
Nice to see the D coming up clutch..
Mattison wants to bring the house but know our secondary SUCKS and can't cover the receivers long enough.
games like this are agonizing
Games like two and three years are agonizing. This is fun.
Just realized the guys with legends jerseys don't have the Outback Bowl patch...
Do our guys know they are supposed to be covering the guys in red?
Another open receiver. Weird.
Just one holding call today...
Wow glad they ran that...Looked we were like 15 yards off the slot guy
I believe people were looking for one Craig Roh.
Must be thinking of blondes.
As far as I can tell Denard only needs7 yards
Thanks for the update...I hope ESPN is keeping track as well.
We blocked a FG!!
BLOCKED!!!!!! WHAT UP FOOOS!!!!!
Thats how you win football games.
Michigan just got their invite to the BLOCK PARTY!
Now I wish we had kicked the extra point earlier.
I won't lose sleep over the decision to go up by 3 instead of 2 though.
Is it just me or is SC's qb moving a lot right before the snap? He shuffles his feet and jitters almost every snap. Shouldn't that be a false start?
GO F N BLUE!!!!!!
SEC speed that.
Love watching other teams have misadventures kicking field goals.
Nice job special teams.
Good shit! Lets crush their will with a TD drive right now!
Spurrier: "LOL! What is field goal?"
Is this really happening, I can't believe it!
Yes Baby - it is real! I like this game!
And Denard has the record
A sweet and time consuming TD drive folks
spurrier will probably decapitate him
What a great first post!
Every time we're in the position, Al gets cute. He calls a great game, we get a lead late (or get close) and then we do something we haven't done all game.
Al, stick to what got you here! We don't need a HB Pass, a Quadruple Reverse or a screen to Taylor Lewan.
The special teams battle is now 7-6 from SC. They giveth and they taketh away. Meanwhile, our kickers are boring and it's great.
That's like the 5th time Gardner has had a pocket and he just runs up into the rush? WTF
He's got the record
Think he just got it!
Get 2nd and short or medium and control the clock. Just run Denard every first down.
Was that the record for Denard?
Is killllllllling us man
If he could make half those f'ed up throws, this game would be over
WTF is that call?
Dammit gardener. Pathetic throw.
We'd have this game.
OMG Gallon was gone for 6.
I don't think he got it y'all
I don't care that we got it...That is fucking stupid ass call
FIRST DOWN MICHIGAN!!!!!!!!!
This is bullshit
Chaos and weirdness.
This is bizarre
What just happened?? Why do that?
Refs plus all of the points!
We have bedlam
I'm not sure what is happening right now.
WHAT JUST HAPPENED
There is no way he got that....
Sit down Spurrier, WHOOO!
(and it doesn't stand for" World Trade Federation"...)
Wasn't that ball short?
I see no way how replay can overturn that lol call by the ref
I think we got shorted on the spot.
So much for the refs being anti Michigan. They just don't know what they're doing period.
Ball coach and a thousand Cocks running around that spot.
I think a coach actually jumped over the ball.
Would've ha some considerable YAC if that pass is completed on 3rd down smh c'mon Devin
Making Mork like calls out there.
I don't think we got it.
A whole chain link short! Go big east!!!
Didn't they dissolve the conference?
Va Tech fans are laughing...
(even though that play was called correct).
I have no idea what the refs are looking at but ill take it
This is some pretty crazy sh*t here...what's the ref doin??
We cashed in all our karma for this one if it stands...wow
And then measure it with the utmost precision. Drives me nuts every time.
Wow. These refs will never hear the end of that one.
Am I wrong that they an only challenge the spot, not the refs incompetence?
We have a lead.
That was looking like the MSU fake punt there...
Wait we're aren't ND!!???
Did we pay the refs?
It's the Michigan Difference
Don't waste that.
It's a terrible call, but you can't overturn it.
We shall never speak of this again
I will say that the camera angle was off just a little. But wow there is no way that was a first. Who ran the ball?
For the make up call now!
I guess that is justice
Goofy shit in this here game.
Karma. There goes the record.
Edit: Thought that was Denard. My bad.
Damn...ball dont lie?
Ball don't lie.
I can't even be mad at that.
And now it doesn't matter
That's an alltime .gif there
Where's the flag?
Not a flag on a running back.
Head to head contact on clowney... That's how smith's helmet came off... So...
You can hit running backs in the head. They lower the shoulder while running so its almost impossible not to. You can also hit qbs in the head once they cross the line of scrimmage and are deemed a running back. You can also hit wrs in the head once they are in possession of the ball but not while they're in the process of catching it.
Is why we shouldn't run power I
Vincent Smith up the gut? Vincent Smith up the gut.
Stop posting. Or just pull the trigger. You're miserable, we get it.
WE ARE NOT A POWER RUNNING TEAM
That was unreal!
That seems about right.
I'll take that call
Is that a helmet to helmet also on the fumble?
And I wish you the best in your pursuits
That's what I thought too.
Hit I have seen in my 23 years of life
Would like a word with you.
I felt that one here in California! Thought it was an earthquake for a second there!!!
And now we are done.Refs pissed em off it's over.
And the very next play is a TD...I want us to win.. It's a fucking blog guy.,.. I can call things the way I see them...and I don't see us winning after that series of events...hopefully I'm wrong, but chill out.
That is simply an incredible play.
Makes sense to not block the best defensive player in the nation. Poor Vincent Smith.
Vince probably doesn't even know where he is after that hit..
He supposed to go unblocked and then picked up by the pulling guard. Poor execution.
RIP Vincent Smith
Thought his head was still inside the helmet. Vinny Smith has taken some big shots this year.
That could be...
not that we deserve it, but i think that's the rule
Interesting point - they would go nuts if that is the call (replay)
Not that it matters after the turn over, but every camera angle on that spot was from behind the ball. We never saw an angle that was from the side. I'll take the judgement of the guy who was standing right there.
Just righted the ship there. Come on now D do what you should have been doing after that horrible measurement.
260lbs meets 160 lbs at full speed = Carolina ball
Probably try some more Vincent smith up the gut. That always seems to work
That can happen when you run iso with a 160 lb. tailback. Two fucking lineman decided NOT to block Clowney for some reason there
Our TE didn't even attempt to block him , but regardless what past play with Smith up the middle would drive Borges into calling a power one with him thy would end in a positive manner? What a fucking ass clown.
SC deserved the ball there, but let's establish a couple things. Smith up the middle...bad. And why the fake punt? Defense has been pretty darn good outside a few big plays. Make them drive the field.
Is enough to make me go for anywhere.
Thats probably the last carry of his career
Just tip you hat and play D.
Gonna have to see that shit all over ESPN now. Posterized.
We have controlled the game but they have the big plays.
Whoops. Violent hit, that could be a momentum changing and game altering play. Oy.
I have no idea what it will take
We get one and piss it away.
Hemet to helmet Sean crable troy smith what?
To go for it instead of play defense
And our secondary decides to just say fuck it again... fucking pathetic effort. They should all be ashamed of themselves for the way they played today.
You should be fucking banned for your pathetic posts. You should also feel ashamed. These are our 3rd and 4th string corners. They shouldn't even be in this position. Act like a fucking adult.
BS. It was Taylor and Gordon. Both starters
Don't bother using facts with him. He's really not worth arguing with. Some of these guys refuse to accept the fact that sometimes are players need to be criticized for the way they are playing. It's nothing against them as people, but it's a pathetic performance.
You're not criticizing. Calling someone pathetic and saying they ought to be ashamed isn't criticism, it's being a giant, gaping asshole. Especially when those guys are only on the field due to injury.
Raymon Taylor played last year....Countess was hurt in the first quarter of the 1st game... I think he knows how to play by now...
You do realize you acting like an asshole doesn't influence the game or the program at all?
Taylor wouldn't be on the field if Countess and Floyd were available, hence the 3rd and 4th string comment.
Seriously? We are down our two best guys, playing freshman? I don't like the results, but I don't fault the effort.
Sorry I thought Gordon had started numerous games....I bow down to your knowledge of football.
He did not have possession when in bounds.
No way that should be a catch he's a juggalo
Plenty of time on the clock...
We don't need no stinkin pass defense
guy never had possession
Appreciate you allowing your sub par teammates to get torched today.
Dumb fake punt cal. Dumb call with Vincent Smith up the middle. Wasted a good second-half comeback.
It will be 2 & 25 after penalty...just wow, if so
Too bad it was a catch.
too bad indeed, it coulda went either way really
Hoke must recruit better DB' s in order to get to the next level. The current group simply isn't good enough.
Better DB recruiting? Check.
If you know Hoke can you pass along my suggestion? K thanks
Countess is hurt
Floyd is high
and the recruiting class including a bunch of DB's is top 5
please move on
There are plenty 5* DBs in this thread. Not those kind of DBs? Oh, nm then
Dymonte Thomas solves all
Hate to say it, but he caught it
Floyd would get burned too.
Give their defense a chance to rest...we were wearing them down.
About taunting calls negating touchdowns?
That's only if the taunt occurs before the touchdown. Like a receiver running away from someone and shaking their finger. Know the rules.
The amount of big plays we've given up is embarassing.
Demand excellence, stamp feet, pout
At least we might get good field position with the penalty.
I disagree, but whatever. My opinions don't count for shit.
How the fuck can that be a catch?????
We'd have the ball again with a lead.
Time to get momentum back somehow.
Od much rather a blooming onion than some coconut shrimp.....
I wouldn't say a fake punt is against Hoke's personality. He has shown a tendency to gamble quite a bit.
"Come on, coach, you should have known that if you went for it, we'd get it on a questionable spot and then turn it over?"
Going for it on 4th had noting to do with the next play on 1first. A million things could of played out.
We got the fake. Why the hell would you complain about getting a first down?
Would've been smart, luckily we didn't need to.
no more hand offs to Smith, I think we've seen enough of that
Fucking stupid ass ref making that shit call gave them karma. Stevie Wonder saw that ball was short.
Why is clowney acting like he just won the national championship? He's had 1 tackle today.
Well it was a pretty nice tackle...
He is a beast when you don't block him.
So is Tom Gholston.
Gruden he is the second coming
He changed the whole game and erased a bad call all on his own.
The announcers have him winning the Heisman...
Forced fumble, and a fumble recovery
Time for a Norfleet return from a short kickoff!!!
I don't blame Hoke for the fake punt; I do blame Borges for the worst running call in the world on the next play.
You mean vincent smith up the middle doesn't work?
? He led with his helmet right in v smiths face
If he doesn't bend over he gets Vinnie's helmet in his nuts again.
For fucks sake, all ESPN is doing is showing that replay on every channel including ABC. Talking about the Heisman already? Get off the EESSSEECC cock.
I've been keeping a count in my head re Denard's overcoming Pat White's rushing record but I am not sure
Yes but espn didn't feel it important enough to share on the screen. Not sure if they said anything about it because I'm listening to radio.
He has 88 yds
No. We had momentum and a fired-up D. No need for the fake punt.
Replay from the back shows his right for taking up white paint. ESPN only showed it once, but it was pretty clear. That wasn't a catch.
Lol @ norfleet
I wanted Norfleet to get a shot.
Nice one Norfleet. Where's he fit in his dance lessons?
and good throw
Stick to it Al.
Short passes and Denard. That's it. No Smith, no anything else.
Wat the fuck is that call???
Oh God. Lizard brain is back.
Should have given it to Smith
We got that one. They didn't stop the play.
Someone go smack Borges. He's reverting to second half Ohio.
Sheesh. First down.
We lucked out on that one.
