I think it is fair to be critical of Floyd. You are right otherwise though.
I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
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.
Grudon was brutal today. Half the time he had no clue what was going on.
Kids played hard but we lack explosiveness. Hopefully young talent develops and we add some playmakers via recruiting.
He's a good leader but never had the physical tools. Made zero plays this year.
Maybe in the NFL as a coach. As a player, no
Great story, bad ending
I am content.
Could have used you today JT.
........MAX KUDOS TO WILE!!
...I f'in hate Michigan football. I'd be a much happier person if it wasn't for the stressfull bullshit like what I just wasted the past few hours watching. For once, Borges (who I still despise) doesn't call a game like he's up in the booth watching cooking shows the entire time, and in return the defense decides to take a shit in the middle of the field and let's Ace and the rest of the f'in Cocks catch them with their pants around their ankles. I can't take this shit anymore.
Now on to Michigan basketball where the players are all competent (except for McLimans) and all the coaches consistently call a good game.
honestly, can't imagine anyone missing you around these parts. Good luck on your journey.
Honestly don't know who you the hell you are and why you act as if you've never seen an over emotionally attached U of M fan over exaggerate their frustrations in an attempt to try to come to terms with a loss/sub-par season.
I've clearly been around a lot longer than you and have contributed more to the forums than you have and someone likes me because I've managed to maintain a +2 karma, so stop trying to fight my temporary douchebaggery with yours. Thanks.
............ you really just typed this: "Now on to Michigan basketball where the players are all competent (except for McLimans) and all the coaches consistently call a good game."........................C'mon
What? You think McLiman's is good?
Ugh. Now we wait 8 months to see what we got. We could have won that game. I wish we had. Thank you to all the seniors!
A comment so great you posted it twice!
I believe that we will compete for the national championship in the 2014 and/or 2015 seasons.
...............most games are decided by a few plays - other than a punt return and 3 (approximately) 50 yard pass plays ....we win - dammit
Michigan fought hard and could/should have had this game if they could have wrapped up the QB once on that last drive or not given up so many huge plays. Bottom line...This team doesn't have stud playmakers. I am hoping there are some on the way. Before RR, we always used to have some on offense and defense. The only ones we have are Denard and Devin. If is frustrating to lose the way we did today. With one or two big-time playmakers, this could be a much different football team.
crazyy how often UM had to blitz this game to get anything. When the DL did appear to make a play they couldn't get the sack. Ryan, Clark, and Black all failed to sack the QB on plays that could have won the game.
Got to bring him down.
Gardner, also not too sharp most the game. Played good enough to win, but could have controlled the game if he makes better throws. Gallon got open ALL game long.
Just like against Bama and OSU. Gallon is the only WR who can make plays and get open vs. good teams. Prob should have had 200yds if Gardner is on point.
Overall, UM coaches called as good a game as [ossible. UM just needs more playmakers and a little more consistency from Gardner. He was just good enough to win though. D couldn't close the deal
Missed most of the first three quarters attending my best friend's granddaughter's 2nd birthday (this is what happens to you when you grow up, kids). From what I saw it was a helluva game where Michigan just got out big-played. Carolina had what, one sustained drive (and that one at the end of the game)?
Clowney's hit on Vincent Smith won him the Player of the Game...that was one of the most amazing hits I've ever seen watching college ball...I'm glad Vincent wasn't hurt, and I can't really blame him for losing the ball. From a karmic point of view, come on...the 'Cocks should've had the ball one play earlier anyway.
Watching their QB's just shrug off Michigan tacklers was pretty discouraging. Can't believe the combination of strength and balance those guys have (that's what I'm telling myself rather than choosing to believe that Michigan tackling on defense still reflects echoes of the RichRod era).
Very sorry that the Florida guys on the team couldn't come back home for a win. Especially Denard.
Freaking UNIFORMZ were awful. Couldn't read the numbers on the jerseys in the sunshine.
This should have been Hoke's first year result. His ACTUAL first year was a remarkable (but dearly needed and appreciated) overachievement...I await Team 134 with a mixture of anxiety and uncertainty. Maybe Charles Woodson will retire from the NFL and come back to complete his degree and use his final year of eligibility on the field...secondary help is badly needed.
Just watched the PAC 12 smart kids run all over the People's Republic of Madison on their first possession. Looks like another loooooooooooooooong day for the B1G.
You win some you lose some. It's the attitude and effort that you come back with after a loss or poor play that makes you loved by your teammates and by fans. So, Kovacs couldn't run the guy on that TD pass (maybe even a few others). He showed great effort, he was a great leader, and if he wasn't in there it would have been way worse. We were in the game and it could have gone either way. A couple of those near sacks could have easily won it. The pressure on that last play a second earlier could have won it. Sometimes you lose.
I don't think this loss hurts us that much considering we played pretty well. It tells us that we can play with a good SEC team. We're not there yet, but we're not that far away either. Countess comes back healthy, Devin gets some more experience, the o-line puts on some beef. Most of our proglems/challenges have been addressed and they simply need time to take effect. I believe this loss could be a beneficial experience for us to show that we still need more work and effort to get back, but we're getting close. So, let's not be so negative towards guys who did things the right way, played hard, had a good attitude, and did their best. Lets send off those seniors with a thank you. Dealing with a loss is a part of competition.
Holy shit...I am only commenting here so I can be part of a 1000 post thread...a first for me!
I'm pretty sure this is the longest thread of all time now.
