Reading the ESPN article, they list a lot of OSU player records for the game--most by OSU running back, only 2nd QB with 50yd pass and 50yd run for Braxton. However, what about a passing record for a Michigan quarterback in The Game? I would think that Devin's performance would qualify but I don't know where to look it up. Anyone know?
Records set in The Game yesterday
I'm pretty sure this was the second most passing yards for a Michigan QB (eclipsed only by the Indiana game this year, which means Devin holds spots 1 and 2 unless I'm horribly mistaken)
OP means vs Ohio only.
I think he's inferring that if this is this game had the 2nd most passing yards by a Michigan QB ever, only being eclipsed by the Indiana game, that Devin Gardner threw for more passing yards in The Game than any other UM QB.
Minus the turnovers at the worst times, he's made some noise. He's #9 all time in carrer yards...in only 17 starts. And with one game left, he's #2 behind John Navarre in passing yards in a season (needs 372 in the bowl to be #1).
Apparently Gallon had the most yards receiving (175) by any player in The Game. It came up on the screen late in the 4th quarter.
I believe Devin Gardner may have set the bar for the most completions in The Game as well. Just going from memory here, but I think Tom Brady had 30 or 31 in 1998 and Gardner had 32 completions yesterday. I could be wrong, but if it is correct, then it should be a single-game record against Ohio State and likely a top five performance all time for a Michigan QB in this category.
Don't concede 2014.
that the entire team is going to be watching SpongeBob or playing Duke Nukem for the next 8 months, instead of healing injuries, strength training, watching film, and preparing themselves for the next season, I would expect some different results next year.
Obviously the off season is long, but I would say the expectations for play are going to be higher next year.
OL is fragile. Witness Bama last night screwed up one blocking assignment and got stopped on 4th and 1...and that was with an "NFL" OL.
Wins in 2000, 2003 and 2011. It's awful and unacceptable but let's not go and take away any wins now.
3 ejections? That's gotta be a record. There are a few more 'M' records listed in the game notes.
That Hyde had not been stopped for a loss all season....until he was met by the long arm of the law in the form of Jake Ryan in the backfield, causing a 2nd and 12. I was so proud at that moment!
I enjoyed the Gedeon sack. Something about seeing players from Ohio making big plays against OSU has a bit of extra satisfaction. Seeing Butt and Deveon Smith play well was also nice.
He was stopped once in the backfield by Illinois or Indiana, but yeah, only two carries for negative yards for the season. That's gotta be some sort of record.
Most yards by one team (603)
Most yards by both teams (1129)
Most middle fingers in the air ?
Most combined points in the rivalry.
Michigan scored 86 all by themselves.
But I suppose it wasn't really a rivalry yet.
What records were set because we lost
You silver- lining moral victory pansies are something else.
Guys I'm sorry I'm not a very good "fan", because I apparently haven't sunk to the same levels of self-loathing and existential despair of all you downers. I'll try harder next time.
I too am not a true fan.
I suspect that we now know how Ohio fans felt during the Cooper years. As the old line goes, this too shall pass. If one looks at the experience index, next year Michigan should be the more experienced team. Indeed, I recall watching the WMU opener and whoever was the play-by-play guy being stunned when he found out how inexperienced Michigan was.
talking about Michigan?
Chalmers meant Central Michigan in the UM home opener.
But what would you rather have? Ohio beating msu and going to the mncg vs fsu and no sec in the game or msu beating Ohio and having another year of a possible sec champion and msu going to a bcs?
MSU has Pasadena basically locked up at this point because if they win they go as B1G champs and if they lose ohio goes to the national title game. So I'll be rooting for the spartans.
If OSU goes to the national title game, the Rose is free to pick whomever it wants.
But they will most likely pick msu
Don't they have to take the top ranked non-AQ if either the Pac 12 or B1G champ is in the title game, provided they're in the top 14? Isn't that how TCU played in Pasadena a few years ago?
I would love to see Ohio get trounced by FSU in the NCG. That way neither Ohio nor the SEC end up on top.
MSU beating ohio definitely. I don't care so much about the SEC in the MNC. I just want ohio to be denied.
Gallon passed Mario Manningham for 2nd all-time in recieving yards in a season. He is only 47 yards shy of breaking Braylon's 1330 yard record.

According to the OSU record book Michigan's 603 total yards is the second most ever against an Ohio State team. The record is 659 by Illinois in 1980; Dave Wilson threw for 612.
Again, these records don't go back to Yost's time, and I don't know how Michigan could have scored 86 without picking up a few yards.
