Texas Baylor is on also!
Joey Andre Ware-ington calling that game? Puke.
How foo-baw is supposed to be played.
Rooting for Missouri since they are sorta Midwest....#MidwestFootball plus its gotta grind some people to see a newbie walk into the SEE EEE CCCCCCCEEEEE and win it all in thei 2nd season in the conf.
Makes the Big Ten look just as bad since Missouri begged to be let in and were snubbed.
No it makes the SEC loook bad as Missouri's earlier success has hurt their image. They weren't suppose to be able to play with the SEC teams without SEC players.
I think the SEC gurus would say that the SEC's higher level of competition has "toughened" up Mizzou faster than expected.
I'm sure they would, but no one outside of the SEC believes that.
Ya, the Big Ten got Rutgers and Maryland instead after all. What a deal! Big Ten looks great for not taking Missouri...
Shoulda called that hold on the two previous downs, too
great catch there by Auburn WR #GallonHands
Nice camera work
Plays at Toledo next year.
He replaced Saban.
That was one hell of a good catch by Mizzou for the TD
That was not a catch...
I got Mizzou in this one.
Barf..... But if I had to pick go Auburn
Got to go with bama haters
Pretty sure they showed a replay where you can see the ball rolling on the ground
Having Drake Harris and George Campbell will make a huge difference just like Green-Beckham and company are for Missouri.
UM is going to have a basketball team at WR.
Is there a more loathesome duo than Verne and Gary Danielson?
I used to like them both, but they've just gotten so terrible. Give it up, Gary, it was a Missouri touchdown. We know you're rooting for Auburn since Missouri isn't really an SEC team.
Well, he was right in real-time, the ball was spinning on the ground...
He may have been right, but to keep harping on it, as though Missouri couldn't have scored on the next play - man, if I was a Missouri fan, I'd just mute this.
It's amazing how much of a moron Danielson became once he flipped to CBS and started solely covering the SEC. He wasn't that bad before.
That being said, I really like CBS' production value for college football. They really do a great job, even if they're total conference homers.
Ya CBS does have great production. I do not understand why other networks are not reaching that standard.
for streaming the broadcast free on their website.
disliking Gary. But Verne is a great announcer--and just a lovable dude.
Rooting for Auburn because of Da'shawn Hand
See, when the SEC champ game is low scoring is because the SEC defense is so elite. But when it's high scoring it's just because how elite the SEC offense is
I know Auburn has a great offense, but the tackling and overall defense in the SEC has went downhill in a hurry.
NFL draft killed the SEC
If Mizzou wins does that mean Auburn will get at an large bid?
No. Loser will not get an at large under any circumstances.
No Alabama does no matter who wins.
Damn that's ballsy.
Auburn has balls of steel going for the onside kick
love the call win or lose on onside - good job auburn coach
Didn't see that coming
If a Auburn team that was 3-9 in 2012 meets a Mizzou team that was never good in the Big 12 in the championship game, your conference isn't as glorious as CBS might trumpet it to be
Read option looking good against mizzou
Is the #spreadstilldead?
Is anyone else starting to lose interest in CFB because the lack of defense?
Watch MSU tonight. I dislike them, but I'm pretty sure their defense destroyed us and many of the teams they played.
But they seem like an outlier. All 11 of their starters are in their third year in the program or more, which is not normal nowadays.
True. But you could add any team's defense that played us, except ND and OSU. That said, I think one simple change in the rules might help - with the spread making one on one matchups everywhere, maybe they need to make a rule that all offensive players need to line up between the numbers on the field. That way they're less spread out and could make it a little easier for defenses at the snap. Just a thought.
The biggest change I'd like to see is to slow down the hurryup offenses (except at the end of a half/game). Defenses should be able to have time to get their substitutions in. It's more tiring to play defense to begin with, so when you don't have a chance to substitute, that's a killer.
The cool thing is we'll know after tonight if that D was legit or their schedule was weak. Same goes for the OSU offense.
I'm still interested but it's definitely getting out of kilter. Offenses have too much of an advantage nowadays.
I'm sure Auburn could score on FSU, but I don't think they would have any chance of stopping them.
Off topic but as a guy from SDV Team 1 I am excited to see Marcus on 60 minutes talking about Operation Red Wings. Have my DVR set to record it now.
CBS games are good for that one thing I guess.
That is an unique skill set.
Ever hear of a guy named Bobby Gassoff?
Anybody notice the starting LG for Auburn ??
We joked about his long decision making process a few years ago, but I really wish we had him now.
I like Auburn's coaching aggressiveness. We need just a little more of that. I like their speed up offense, going for it on 4th, onside kick. Asspects of the misdirection running attack. Yeah, I kind of like it all.
Might be rooting for Missouri.
The only reason I would root Auborn is if they could unseat Ohio (won't happen).
Int by Franklin. Anybody check Vegas if he has money on this BC he straight missed about 4 key throws badly already.
well that escalated...
This game is sloppy. Oh I'm sorry Verne, "shows the sec toughness and parity"
Exactly what I was thinking. This game is not making the SEC look good at all. A lot of major misakes rather than great plays.
That play was a disaster from the get go.
How is texas/baylor only 3 - 3 at halftime? What vortex did we enter where a Big 12 game featuring Greg Robinson and Baylor's defense could every be low scoring?
With a brutal wind.
Related note, anybody see ucf at smu had 1000 people total?
They were letting anyone in free who just showed up to the stadium.
is having some trouble though.
Bad, bad, defense.
combo looks as good as OSU's.
Punters have been banned from the SEC
If this were the BTCG, everyone would be talking about how sloppy both teams are and that this is just an ugly game with too many mistakes.
But because it's the SEC, this kind of game is just about how tough the conference is, that they're playing big boy football, and everyone else is just fighting to catch up.
Both teams marching up and down, only defense being key turnovers.
Love how giddy Verne got from that doinked crossbar kickoff.
3-3 Texas/Baylor at half.
Proving without a shadow of doubt that changing coordinators midseason is sure to be a total disaster. Glad Michigan stayed the course and didnt get baited into making a switch. Look how crappy Texas's defense is playing now.
Because the weather has had absolutely no impact on the game so far...
He was familiar with Texas' personnel. Can you name an former OC who was in a similiar position to help Michigan??
Other than those three guys? Nobody. You got me.
That wouldn't having today with Baylor losing Tevin Reese would it now or the weather?? Baylor hasn't been anywhere near the same since he went down.
Do announcers even watch the replays they comment on? Mizzou receiver obviously caught that he was just out if bounds. I hate CBS
Mizzou v Oklahoma circa 2005
They look like a Big Twelve defense.
Colorado just stunned #6 Kansas with a half-court buzzer-beater.
Visions of Wiscy last year.
I just turned this on and to listen to the cbs crew one would think Auburn is winning this game by 40. It's an 8 point game fergodsakes.
Cause they turned it over twice - still sloppy, yet exciting half
Boom - boom again. Settle down big Verne!
"I predict teams are going to copy the triple option from the shotgun "
Really? You mean like northern Illinois, Arizona,and any other number of spread running teams? Fucking asshat.
You mean the same guy that said the spread was dead 5 yrs ago?
I love how Danielson is slurping up the read option attack now. What a derpfaced slappy.
Watching Auburn's rushing attack makes me sad that we're going to Manball. :(
Remind anyone of a noon game say last Saturday?
just needs to keep moving the ball. Auburn's D doesn't look great either.
Is this the Auburn announcing crew or CBS National? Wow are they shilling for Auburn right now - if I actually gave a shit about Missouri I'd be pissed.
Wears him as a hat.
And Gary wears a midget dressed as a troll dressed as Jim Rome on his. Gary definitely has an ass for a hat as well. He is far worse than Verne (2006 Florida hyping during game when they beat Arkansas; I care not for arguments about Florida jumping M and validating jump by waxing OSU 5 weeks after we played them, as I wanted another shot at OSU for the MNC).
That's hilarious. Time for some photoshop.
Typical SEC announcing. They always openly route for the higher rated team. Its a joke.
Of course, they're trying to make a case for Ohio State to get jumped.
I cannot stand OSU, but they absolutely should be in the championship game if they win. I dont know where CBS./ESPN concluded that the SEC gets an auto-bid to the championship game. The bottom of the conference sucks just as hard as any other league. The only really good teams in it this year are Alabama, Auburn, and Mizzou(?)
the right call. If Auburn wins, they beat another top ten team. OSU did have a convincing win over Indiana though.
That would probably be a Top5 team in Alabama and a top 15 team in Missouri. Don't start quoting where a team was ranked when you played them. That is garbage. And Auburn got soundly beaten by LSU. They were down 21 at the start of the 4th. LSU went up 14 about 5 minutes in to the game and Auburn never got closer.
because it will be more appropriate to argue about this issue of who is more deserving after both teams finish their games tonight.
Ohio had a nice run game, no bias but this Auburn running attack is nuts. Unlike Mattison and Michigan vs the Bucks, Mizzou is actually trying different tactics to slow Auburn down (tinkering between a three man line and four man line)....not working!
You are watching the absolutely awful tackling in this game criticizing Mattison. Seriously?
Mizzou held EVERY SINGLE OPPONENT under their rushing yards average this season, seriously?? Is it bad tackling or perhaps is Auburn's o line dominant and their rb's just very shifty and hard to tackle?
The only good offenses Missouri faced were Tex A&M and S.Carolina. They played Georgia when Georgia had lost both running backs. They didn't exactly play a daunting schedule to say the least. Their hardest road game was Georgia and they had nothing left by the time that happened.
I'll repeat: they held EVERY single opponent under their rushing yard average, in the SEC. Every single one. And you want to talk about "X team had an injury" and whom they played on the road. You ever been accused of not giving a team credit where credit is due? The point still stands whichever way you want to try to justify it; Auburn has a dominant running game. That being said, Mizzou is also a hell of a team
I see no reason to spare Mattison from criticism. He is an excellent coach, but even good coaches have bad games and seasons.
Look, I think Mattison is an awesome d coordinator. But he didn't adapt, and changed nothing when it was apparent what Ohio was going to do.....over, and over and over again. The only point I was trying to make is unlike Mattison, Mizzou is actually attempting at shaking things up on defense. And nothing is working. I've only seen a few missed tackles by Mizzou, what I have seen more times than not is an Auburn tailback 10 yards down field before a white jersey is even in the position to either make or miss the tackle.
I cannot stand listening to the CBS announcers slurp the SEC all game long
No offense? "Gary, SEC defense so gud"
No defense? "Verne, SEC offense so dinamik. Boner"
FSU would do to Auburn what Stanford did to Oregon.
Settling into this game after being out for a couple hours. To this point, 369 yards on 37 plays for Auburn, or basically about 10 yards per snap. They are also getting 0.757 points per play, so as someone above said, it seems like 277 yards of rushing would basically warrant the "Holy Rushing Game!" exclamation.
At the risk of sounding cliché football comes down to blocking and tackling. If you can't block it doesn't matter what scheme you run. It seems so simple but as we saw with Michigan it matters so much.
This is fun to watch. I get a sort of RR-era West Vrigina vibe from Mizzou in the way they are seemingly hybrid-type guys, really fast and agressive and athletic on defense especially. And the way they both check and re-check to defensive/offensive calls while at LOS...makes me envious.
Remember when Scott Loeffler said the reason his offense wasn't good at Auburn was because Auburn didn't have talent on offense?
— Smart Football (@smartfootball) December 7, 2013
future of Michigan football?
Remember when Scott Leoffler spent all those years studying under Mike DeBored?!?!
Has his offense ever been at least decent when he's the OC? Don't understand the Loeffler love other than he played and coached at Michigan. He's not good at all.
Not a great OC, though.
How does Baylor have 300+ yards of offense, no turnovers, and only ten points?
It would be interesting to analyse how the national announcers call SEC games relative to the score they are watching.
9-6 Alabama over LSU was an example of their fantastic defenses and was announced as such
28-20 Auburn over Missouri (at the half) is an example of their fantasic offenses and is being anounced as such
Heads you win....tails I lose.
Bama vs LSU was in fact an example of their fantastic defenses.
Other than that I take your point.
Even GREATER offenses at work!
Just need to amplfy the narrative that's all.
Anyone else think that it is strange when a conference recognizes players and teams that weren't part of the conference when they played? Mizzu QB from the 70's getting recognized and awarded something by the SEC is strange to me.
...would be the first year that two teams from the same conference won the National Championship?
What exactly IS the B1G official line on this? The B1G Network routinely shows Tommie Frazier highlights when showing their montage clips spotlighting all the teams in the conference...is this one of those things that we just politely agree not to talk about or what?
Can't help but notice only 2 teams playing in BCS League Champ games playing manball (Sparty & Stanford)
were won by teams that played Manball.
It really doesn't matter what offense you run. It's playcalling and execution that seperates winners and losers.
First Alabama plays manball and are clearly at least the 2nd best team in the SEC. Second what do you call FSU. They are definitely a power football team.
"Maul" may be a bit strong but yes they are now up two touchdowns.
No defense in the SEC apparently
Some epic ESSS EEEE SEEEE defense right there.
for having a bias towards the ESS SEE SEE is like complaining that NBC is biased towards ND. I mean, yeah of course they are. Besides Army-Navy, do they call any other conferences games?
Was Green-Beckham interested in us for a while? His name sounds really familiar
Not really. His name is familiar because he was the #1 rAted recruit a couple years ago.
Man, I want to watch this SEC game and just enjoy the game, but...
Watching Mizzu score after getting the ball at their 7 yard line with a little over one minute until the half... reminds me of what....?
Hoke really REALLY should have tried to get some points at the end of the 1st half. I like Hoke's aggressiveness usually, but I feel that was a MAJOR blunder than bit us in the ass at the end of the game. I stil can't believe he would just sit on it against a team like Ohio.
(get over it, I know. I'm trying)
will drive you crazy. For your own mental health let it go.
So let's compare end-of-the-half drives here.
Missouri gets the ball at their own 8 with 1:10 on the clock down 8 points. Drives down the field and scores.
Michigan gets the ball at their own 20 with 1:03 on the clock in a tie game. Gets a first down, runs out the clock.
Which would you rather have?
the ball? Michigan has neither of those.
Yes but they scored there through the air, something we were having success doing against OSU.
If it were me I would have tried to push it down the field.
And a QB who hasn't been beaten into the ground all year.
And yet they scored 21 points on the half, and reasonably could have made it 28 by at least trying instead of playing for the whistle.
Like I said, I don't defend it, but I do understand the decision.
You are right. They only scored 42 in the game, and they should not have tried to get more points. Strong arguement.
There are of course other options.
Gardner could throw a pick or fumble, or our offense could simply be stopped (I believe Ohio had some timeouts) and then they would be the ones with a chance to score at the end of the half. And then I bet you'd be complaining about us not playing it safe afterwards, since you seem to be always complaining.
No. After we got that first down run, THEN is when I would have played aggressive. Bad things can always happen. You can play call to try and avoid disaster (throwing deep, or telling DG to take sacks rather than risks, for example). If we would have been stopped, no worries. Not trying, for me, brought worries. As it turns out, I might have been correct.
You usually have to take some sort of risks to win. If you are afraid to take any, you will likely lose. That is a general, but very true statement.
The guy shooting footballs basketball style just got screwed with this ot session
Yeah, that would have been complete garbage if he lost.
Credit to him for not letting it affect him. If I knew I potentially got screwed out of 100k, I probably wouldn't have been able to concentrate in the OT.
but it got him $100K.
"OSU likely 60 mins away from a bid to the NCG" - someone on Fox
Is everyone in the national media really writing off MSU like that? I think MSU has a great shot tonight..
were favorable to MSU last night. Didn't see gameday this morning.
Much defense. Amaze discipline. Very tackle. Wow.
Maybe I'm putting too much thought into it, but the Dr. Pepper $100,000 football chuck has always rubbed me the wrong way.
It's great to see the winner's joy and think that he can build a great future with the education afforded by his winnings, but what of the loser?
I see the loser's life falling apart. I see her staring at the ceiling every night, thinking what might have been-- what that education money could have made possible. I find it scary to think that her future could depend so much on whether she could throw one more ball through a stupid hole. I feel like this competition produces both a good-feel story and a hidden, tragic one.
Anywho, go Tigers!
Of Dr. Pepper addiction.
Did anyone catch the Colorado buzzer beater vs Kansas?
Pretty nice shot
Yep, pretty crazy
This week, in a very special episode of the SEC Championship Game...
That our coaches don't acknowledge that tempo can give you a decided advantage.
You don't have to run a warp speed like Auburn or Baylor. But just using it to keep the defense off balance or to get a rhythm is worth it. Maybe not every possession, but why not sometimes? Just like why not throw screens sometimes?
We are so prehistoric that it drives me nuts.
Give your players the best chance to win...quit trying to be old school.
Start of the 4th quarter and the announcers are talking Mack Brown being out of a job. Nice.
Their QB is either horrible or having a horrible game.
Only game I watched Texas this year the refs hosed Iowa State and Texas won.
The bands will now demonstrate mitosis...
There is no way he saw where he was throwing.
...but so bad at Michigan?
Why is our luck so bad with everything right now?
WHY WHY WHY!!??
I also would not overreact to 6 games. Let's see what happens over a full year.
And he still may get 40 hung on him by Baylor.
But the fact that largely because of him they're even in the position to win a Big 12 title is crazy.
And he still may get 40 hung on him by Baylor.

For god's sake CBS please stop showing that last play of the Auburn/Bama game. Was it really necessary to add sparkles to it ????????????
Because it was magical.
...thank GOD for that play, I haven't seen DG laying lifeless nearly as much as I thought I would.
We of all teams (Clowney hit) know how much the media will fall in love with one play.
If the B1G would've taken Mizzou and Louisville
Lousiville was never going to happen and lets see how good they are without Strong, Bridgewater, and the Big East.
What happened to Strong? Did I miss something?
He isn't long for Louisville. Whether its the NFL or very like Florida he's headed for a bigger job.
They have arguably the best AD in the country, they'll be fine without Strong and co.
That said, I agree, they were never an option.
And of course it's not about competitive excellence, it's about TV markets.
I'm just tired of watching how awesome the SEC is and how BAD the B1G is.
I want to have conference pride again and brag about how dominant we are. Even if Michigan returns to glory, the conference is still pretty awful right now.
Best AD in the country? I think Strong has a lot more to do with the success at Louisville than the AD does.
Strong won a basketball national championship?
Look at their other sports like soccer, field hockey, baseball, etc.
They're a strong athletics department. Tom Jurich is widely considered one of the best with Jeremy Foley at Florida and the guy that just went to Texas. Hollis at MSU is always in the mix as well.
Mizzou bet UCLA in basketball today.
NCAA - "Don't bet on it"
So true. They also scored more points than UCLA.
I'd take Pitt over Louisville but ya Mizzu would have been nice.
I would've been fine with Mizzou and Maryland though...
That said, we need to get better before we worry about anything else. Auburn, Mizzou, Alabama, LSU and Texas A&M all could've easily won the B1G this year. Not saying they would, but it's not a far fetched thought.
That's 5 elite teams when UF, UGA, and UT are all down. I didn't even mention S. Carolina.
Have you seen Tex A&M play D? They would not have easily won the Big10 or any major conference. LSU was terribly inconsistent all year and almost capped it off by losing to Arkansas.
The Vegas sports books, who usually know a thing or two, would have OSU favoured over all those teams except for Bama.
So saying those teams could have easily won the Big10 is just wrong and quite frankly a joke. The Big10 is down yes, but I'll take the opinion of the guys of Vegas over yours any day and so would most people.
I said it wouldn't surprise me.
Also, you can go through an entire regular season and not play OSU or MSU.
Texas A&M could beat either of those teams in a B1G championship game...not saying they would, but it's not even a stretch.
I hate saying it, but in the SEC you can miss teams, but you can't miss everyone.
Missouri basically played A&M and S.Carolina. Both at home. The SEC and the ACC as well really needs to go to a 9 game schedule. With 14 teams 8 simply isn't enough.
Even without playing the toughest conference schedule, are we really going to argue about which conference is deeper or tougher?
Watching these teams makes me feel like we have a long way to go to compete with the best. They look like complete teams, they have good punters and guys who can actually return punts. They have big athletic defenses. They have competent offenses. Am I wrong? I just feel like it will take years for michigan to compete at this level.
It's going to have to happen in 2015 or I don't see it happening under Hoke.
That said, I have faith. As long as we can improve and develop the guys we have and hold on to these recruiting classes.
Watching Green-Beckham makes me think about George Campbell.
Watching the RBs make me think about Harris with Green and Smith.
2015 we'll have upperclassmen who were highly touted, we'll have depth and we'll have a favorable schedule.
Yes watching Green-Beckham definitely gives me hope with Harris and Campbell coming in.
OSU, MSU, and ND all lose a lot of talent. Golson will have a year's rust to shake off and ND loses most of their defense and offensive line, MSU loses 7 of their 11 defenders(and perhaps Narduzzi) and most of their offensive line, and OSU loses most of their OL, secondary, and Hyde. Smith could leave as well.
The challenge for next year lies with the team itself. If they make dramatic improvements on both lines and Gardner matures UM can win 10-11 games. The talent is there.
However, this is a gigantic "if".
Winning 10-11 games doesn't make you elite.
I certainly think what you've said is doable. In fact, I think it's the expectation.
But it's not this elite champinship level that we're salivating over. I am looking for us to be dominant. Top 5, Top 3.
They have plenty of size and speed themselves. Between these two and Butt and Funchess Gardner should put up great numbers next year.
I'm drunk so maybe I'm being too negative. It just feels like a long time since michigan has had a competent team in all phases of the game.
It's the truth.
Our special teams haven't been explosive since Breaston was at Michigan.
I wasn't a fan before I went to school there. All I've known is pain.
I've seen you do that alot in this thread...
require a message.
Neither team seems to play much defense, but we definitely have a long way to go to compete with the elites of college football consistently
Auburn's kicker has sissy looking pants.
Uh? I think he said no 1 loss SEC team should leap ahead of OSU if they win.
was that they flagged Baylor for showboating, taking away the pick 6. The only thing the guy did was slow down and break his stride, a very little bit. AWFUL CALL. Fortunately Baylor scored on their first offensive play.
I think the winner of the SEC should just get an auto-bid to play in the MNC and the runner up in the SEC should probably also get an autobid too. Matter of fact, next year when college football starts their four team playoff I think the 3rd & 4th place teams in the SEC should also probably round out the quartet.
Cause the SEC is like the best conference EVER.
....and all the other SEC teams (even without 6 wins) should get major bowls too.
You can stop. Danielson has the color job for CBS wrapped up.
34-31...great game thus far.
As long as it isn't Auburn. Another last second game winning score would be played forever.
So if things stay as they are:
I haven't given up on Auburn jumping Ohio if they can rip this one open.
To offer up a MIZ ZOU! Go tigers (the good kind!!!)
If Missouri were to squeak by Auburn and OSU goes down how much of a push would Bama get to pass Missouri?
My guess is Bama jumps them. Bama is in the title game if two of these three lose - Ohio, FSU, Auburn.
Puss in boots
The Increadible Hulk
Good Lord what plays do those pictures represent?
Ahahaha I saw that too
For most teams that use the boards to call their plays, each offense play is also given a category. For example inside zone might be movies and counter might be rappers. When they call the play at the line of scrimmage then they just use something that fits into those categories. They also have to determine if they are going to run the play to the left or right. Just using the few examples you have already and assuming that they're talking about the movies and not the actual comic book characters. Perhaps a movie that has THE at the beginning is a play to the right (The Wolverine) and a movie that does not goes to the left (Puss in Boots). They may be doing something different but this is how I learned it.
Auburn passes up ohio and they should.
No they should not. Unless OSU loses the undefeated champion of the B1G should play in the MNC ahead of a one loss SEC team
I don't think that is the case this year or the last few years.
Hopefully it gets back to that one day.
That would shorten the odds a bit, wouldn't it?
all by himself
...and I wonder if Smart Football is tearing out all of his hair.
Danielson on Malzahn's offense, "He basically invented it himself."
Lundquist, "Well he read a book called The Delaware Winged T and it's basically the same thing."
I hate GD.
The ump laying wood!
Nice elbow by the ref.
and with that tackle, the ref became the 3rd leading tackler on the year for Indiana....
Bad call on that false start.
The right call.
Only the guy directly across from the guy in the neutral zone can be influenced. In this case, if the OT jumped to respond then it would've been a penalty on Auburn. The WR can't react to a lineman or LB that isn't directly covering him at the LOS.
It's like a " find 6 different things" puzzle
451 yards rushing in 3 quarters. Meanwhile we had 530 yards rushing our last 6 games.
I is sad....
That was dirty.
Verne is positively giggly tonight.
...but that's not MANBALL
That was a disgusting cut by that RB. My god
There is a strong possibility Auburn eclipses 600 yards rushing in this game....
He caught the corner of that cart square in the middle of his back. Ouch.
That hit was so late, you have to seriously consider ejecting him.
One wonders how this team was 3-9 and did not win a SEC game last year. Coaching makes a difference apparently.
Nick Marshall also makes a difference. What no mention of Missouri's turnaround? They didn't change coaches. They just happen to have had a very young team that magically got better as they got experience.
That is remarkably insightful.
I am just looking forward to the 3 out of 4 eleven win seasons in 2014, 2015, and 2017 - since you are convinced Hoke is on a superior coaching arc than Dantonio ;) well in that case it should be 3 out of 4 twelve win seasons.
As for Pinkel, I think if you moved UM to the SEC it would have some trouble, considering we finished 8th this year in a lousy conference. And Pinkel has seasons of 12-2, 10-4, 10-3 in the past 6 years. So there is a track record there outside of 1 year. And as always Michigan has access to far better players than Misouri based on brand and recruiting classes.
well thats one of the dirtiest plays ive seen in a while
That should have been an ejection.
Ass hat should be ejected.
That pissed me off.
Good for Mizzou after that dirty play.
Last play I saw was the Auburn extra point
Yeah - looked easy, didn't it?
This is on pace for both teams scoring in the 60s.
That's about as dirty of a play that I've seen in a while.
I am not saying this is because of the spread. I just am curious as to why so many have awful defenses.
I wonder the same thing. It's like they you can only have one or the other. Look at MSU, great defense, not so great offense. It's one or the other.
they alter their coverage POST snap. That is hard to account for as an offense.
Defenses? Eh, not so much.
They go so fast that their defense is always on the field.
That is why I DON'T want Michigan to go this route.
But I DO wish that we would be multiple and go spread/no huddle on a couple possessions a game. It would also help us at the end of the game.
I'd much rather prepare for one type offense even if it is an up tempo spread then an offense that can beat you a variety of ways.
Half the world pauses tv and searches for the next famous gif
SEC or not, this has been fun to watch.
It's starts out great, but by the end you are ready for something different.
makes up for Danielson's general backwardsness--IMO. I love CBS's production style--love the NFL games too. It sure beats listening to Musberger
Man Bama must be kicking themselves in the nuts watching this game.
494 yards after 3 quarters. #StillNotMANBALL
I may be in the minority but I thought he he was just trying to stop him when he shoved him.
Stop him from ever playing again. Pushed him 8 yrds out of bounds.
Yes, correct- you're in the small minority
Definite minority; that was dirty as can be
How can you stop someone by shoving them?
Apparently Mizzou has no clue how to defend that play.

The 'M' on his stupid tattoo is Missouri's and not Michigan's Block M

I love the Mountain West!
I know LT went for over 400 in a game though.
I saw better defense at the 2010 Illinois game.
1,057 yards of offense after three quarters. I am calling "barn burner":
Bo Jackson is 51? Yikes, I feel old.

No defense. But very entertaining football
I'd hate to be a fan of either team watching this game, though.
