just think their kids are stronger/ tougher than the oponent or that they don't have the courage to be creative? A PA pass there stands a great chance, because attacking the middle of the MSU D, when they expect it is a terrible call.
Rose Bowl Open Thread
Please tell me more about how Hoke calls UM's offensive plays without a headset.
Oddly, this makes me feel better because David Shaw, who most people think is an amazing coach decided to run right at the MSU D two times in a row. It's like he never even watched footage of MSU. This makes me feel better about Borges' dumb-ass calls.
It does? How?
Hell of a game by sparty
MSU has walk ons making huge stops to win games in the rose bowl...we cant even get four and five star recruits to do that shit lmao
You will have to deal with the Hoke apologist who will say “The line is young” (despite having 2 NFL linemen) and also “Give him time”. All the excuses in the world while, our rivals and others are getting the most out of their 3 start talent..
We haven't won a rose bowl since 1998..fuck
Haz this defense?
I can feel it...
.5 seconds later and that's a pick 6 to lose the game.
Another victory for MANBALL. /s!
Brent Musburger: "A green eruption." Gross, and maybe my new name for Sparty.
the only nickname we have for sparty now is superior...
2014 = 2013? I need to move to Europe and find a soccer team or something. All the teams I root for in this country suck.
Seriously. I wish I could at least move out of Michigan.
Better not be bullshit congrats to MSU thread. Fuck them.
Down 4 with 3 minutes to go to drive and win The Rose Bowl and that is the best offensive plays you can come up with???? Just terrible.
Gotta love MANBALL...
*sigh* I guess this is good for the Big Ten....
okay. The Big Ten won the Rose Bowl. Now the Buckeyes can lose big.
gets the final snap. Weird in some way
Well that sucks.
But, Congrats Sparty, they were the better team today. At least the B1G saves a little face.
I hate Tom Rinaldi with a passion.
Can I plead has a negbang?
I flew home to L.A. this morning through Chicago. Bunch of Sparties were on the plane who had been delayed overnight and were just going to make it to the Rose Bowl for kickoff. Flying back to Michigan tomorrow. I'm happy for the bastards.
Still think they're all on steroids.
My god. In two years we saw a zero loss OSU, 1 loss ND, 1 loss OSU, and 1 loss sparty.
All while Michigan is almost painfully impossible to watch.
If not for tattoos the national championship game last year would have been a joke - ND v OSU.
But your greater point is there - OSU ND and MSU were all top 5 type of teams sometime in the past 14 months. Those are our 3 rivals. It is a low point for decades for UM football in relation to where UM is to all 3 rivals. SIgh
....did Dantonio makes himself A Lot of money because of this season $$$$$$
to Hoke's pay scale
I would love to see MSU play an offense with elite WRs just once.
MSU does something Michigan has never done...win 13 games. Puke.
I don't like hearing about him talking about the strong recruits they are getting.
2014 please be better!!!
"we're deep..." -Mark Dantonio.
-Also what she said.
Are those Rose Bowl champions hats bedazzled?
That is one ugly hat!
the Curse of Mike Hart
They're just a MUCH better team. And it shows whether they win or lose this game.
It wasn't a bad call, stanford just didn't execute
I swear Borges was calling all 469 running plays up the middle into a stacked defensive line. What was Shaw thinking...
Bo and Woody both thought that call was too conservative.
Fake to the FB and give to the RB.
But why no helmet to helmet? Guy led with his head. 15 yards plus ejection.
One coach this season attempted to throw over the top against MSU and take advantage of their scheme, and big surprise, it worked.
share your wisdom with effing every other coach--who obviously didn't see what you saw.
He just got himself a big time contract.
I'm only happy for The Big Ten. It's rep is so bad nationally that this gives a dose of credibility to the conference.
Did they design these hats in 1979?
The Dantonio Way.
I hope OSU wins too...if Michigan is gonna be shit and our rivals are gonna be good. The conference may as well win. Just put me out of my misery.
As if I need yet another reason to hate being back in Lansing. I'll never hear the end of this shit. Le sigh, I miss GR.
just said hail to the msu spartans...he must die...
"Hail to the Michigan State Spartans"
It seems weird to use the word "Hail" when referencing MSU.
losing it for several years...I honestly think he got confused UM/MSU for a second.
Congratulations to MSU! They deserved it and hopefully our coaching staff is watching and taking notes how to get it done!
Gotta give em credit. They're at the point where recruiting numbers don't really matter anymore, they just continue to plod along in crushing fashion. See: Boise State, Virginia Tech. They'll come down to earth eventually, but they might ride this one for a while.
Crazy that this team that struggled with WMU and USF is going to end the season ranked in the top 3
Like the way Central Florida is playing. Get George O'Leary's agent on the phone.
For sure. Hopefully he doesn't lie on his resume this time.
13 win MSU...I've never seen a 13 win Michigan.
This thread was fun, too.
A "state of our open threads" analysis for this one would be interesting...the most frequently used profanity seemed to be "Borges", by a looooooonng shot.
