good luck gents
You may be getting ahead of yourself, MLive dude. Drake Harris had 8 catches for 243 yards against Watts-Jackson's OLSM last fall.
i find this extremely interesting
i may have altered the title
i thought this was america
like I said on twitter: that was almost as intense as Iowa NIT games
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
Grab yo brew and watch the offensive slugfest..............
In this world there are opinions that exist and then there is truth. My opinions happen to be true.
I am really not sure that I need to see that again.
Speaking as someone who was AT that game, I don't have the stomach either.
Now, if the Big Ten Network wanted to show just our offensive drives from that game, I would be all for it.
Go Blue! Always!
You dont wanna see a team who kept hitting back everytime it received a haymaker? Sure the defense was atrocious, but the resiliancy of that team is something to admire.

That is to say, the defenses really struggled.
Judge me however you want, but I don't have the stomach to handle the defense in that game. I have no problem fast forwarding past GERG's defense.
the Illini's offense.
USING GRATUITOUS AMOUNTS OF CAPS LOCK SINCE APRIL 2011
It was on last night at 4 AM or something too. Quite a mistake letting my state friend watch that game while everyone else tried to sleep. Even worse was that it was followed up by MSU/ND from last night.
I watched it earlier today and it was just as painful as the first time. Maybe they'll show this game to the players as an example of how not to play defense.
Tressel suckles at the teat of FAIL
exactly. a healthy reminder of who we not are.
im gonna pretend like i don't know what happens and tip cars over after. you'll recognize me because i'll be the guy tipping cars over after.
Most insane game ever.
That was my first game. Hated watching the defense but loved the offense that day.
The place went nuts when we finally stopped the Illini.

Just watched it again. Let's agree to create an NCAA bylaw mandating that Iowa have a tight end on all plays and that the tight end always stand straight up with his hands on his hips prior to the snap. This is important people.
It's all John Navarre's fault.
.....and it took a lot of beer to forget that game.

and then when we have a top-10 defense in 3-5 years, we can all just laugh and pretend it never happened
"This is an elite job, and will continue to be an elite job. This is Michigan ferodsakes!"
That game reminded me of the scene after the botched execution of Eduard Delacroix (Someone forget to wet the sponge that sends electricity to the condemned man's brain and they had to fry the poor guy for several minutes,creating a big mess.)
Anyway, afterward the warden chews out Paul Edgecomb: quoting from memory here but it went something like...
Warden: What the hell was that?
Edgecomb: A successful execution.
Warden: You call that an execution?
Edgecomb: Well, he's dead ain't he?
I imagine the same sort of conversation after the Illinois game...
Brandon: What the hell was that?
Rodriguez: A win.
Brandon: You call that a win?
Rodriguez: Well, we wound up with more points than they had, didn't we?
He doesn't want to go down!
The Bruins/Canucks game just went to OT, during the break I'm on BTN.
We're down 59-52...and my blood pressure is way too high.
As bad as the D is, they do show spurts of quality. Hopeful/confident that Greg (not Gerg) can finely hone those bits. They also show large quantities of WTF. Hopeful/confident that Greg (not Gerg) can make those batches disappear.
Now 59-59 (that TD was a gift from Valhalla).
5 4 3 2 1 Touchdown!
Touchdown Billy Taylor!
Gerg could have just been called "GAH!" by the end of the season.

Abort, Retry, Fail?
Our defense just looks clueless out there. You can see where the "don't watch film" comment came from. And for all the yards he got before Tate came in, it still shows Denard has lots of room to grow. There were a lot of unquarterback-like throws.
Luckily, both can and should get better.

I thought it was interesting that Brian Griese was more or less calling Tate out for not taking the open receivers, (usually in the flat) and forcing the ball where it didn't belong. He made a couple of statements in the last two U-M drives of regulation. And he was definitely not impressed with the defense. Particularly when the wheel routes were open for touchdowns twice and once again for a 1st and Goal inside the 5.
I watched about half of it. I had forgotten how bad our defense was?
