Glad to see the SEC finish 0-2 in the final BCS year.
"I love it that Ivy League coaches are coming to our camp and Big Ten coaches are coming to our camp. South Florida is coming. We've got about 70 schools that are coming to our camp."
Glad to see the SEC finish 0-2 in the final BCS year.
ESPN plotting its return already.
Keep in mind the theme for tonight- FUCK the SEC. FUCK ESPN! Never forget that.
The BCS was merely a setback?
You guys who experienced 1997 are so lucky.
I'd give ANYTHING to be born in 1980 instead of 1995 so I could experience 1988-89 - 1998-99:
Our time will come again. One day.
I was at the Rose Bowl on January 1, 1998. Can't even describe how awesome it was.
When I was your age, I never thought that day would come, but it did and it was fantastic. Your day to shine is coming.
in 1991 how we suffered the worst beatdown ever (at the time of course) at Michigan Stadium, I could NEVER imagine myself ever wanting Florida State to win anything. But when Brent pointed out that they were chanting "SEC" in the first half, I became their biggest fan (for tonight).
First Grbac pass of the game, pick 6 by Terrell Buckley. Felt like some had a giant needle and sucked all the air and sound out of the Big House. But, if memory serves me correctly, we somehow got within 2 scores late 3rd or early 4th quarter. Lost by 19? Strictly from memory, something like 52-33. I remember on State after the game a lot of students were mocking the "semenholes". Anyone?
was that we kept pace TD for TD through the first half, until Grbac threw an INT going for an ~10 yard TD pass at the end of the first half. In the second half, they kept scoring and we didn't.
Sigh...I share your sentiment.
I became a huge Michigan fan after I enrolled to umich at 2008....yeah you know how it went from there.
I was only 3 years old when we won it in 1997.
Since I started really watching in 2002, I've seen us beat down by OSU nearly every year, them win the national title that year, them win six big ten titles in a row from 05-10, and play in two other national title games. After the shit ending to the 2006 season, I along with the rest of the country including ESPN, thought it was our year in 2007. Well...you know how that went.
NOW I have to see MSU and OSU play in the big ten title game while MSU plays a style of football exactly like what we used to play and finish the season 13-1 and #2 in the country.
Can you see why I'm frustrated as hell? I'm tired of watching the team I love underachieve.
I thought about that during the winter classic. What a great few years the late nighties were for us Michigan / Red Wings fans (of which I was neither then)
1996: Michigan Hockey
1997: Red Wings, Michigan Football
1998: Red Wings, Michigan Hockey
I'm surprised some of you made it through those years without dying of overwhelming happiness
I really took those for granted. After eating a few turd sandwiches over the last decade, it's been humbling and made me appreciate the good times more.
The decade from '89 to '99 was epic.
I remember Rumeal Robinson's free throws and the celebration that followed in/around South U like it was yesterday. We almost did it again last year...
New conference realignment: FSU to SEC
active to last year. The SEC streak continues!
Wasn't this announced when there were 14 seconds left in the game?
Florida blocked that move. The SEC wanted FSU and Clemson.
I love 2014!
How long until pitchers and catchers report?
I'm not even gonna touch that one.
Something like 40 days I think.
Anyone else catch the Ausmus interview earlier? Seems like a solid hire!
If anyone can find a gif of what Paul Finebaum looked like after seeing Auburn lose, I will donate all my future mgopoints to you.
seriously, I don't know if I could have handled another year of SEC bloviation.
Musburger caused me to mute the TV. I think he has a bigger hardon for the SEC than he does for Katherine Webb
He probably has one of those cardboard SEC logos they give out to the SEC champions and he sleeps with it at night whilst running his finger down it with Barry White playing.
Okay, that was too far.
Should have switched to one of the other ESPN channels, instead. My favorites were the coaches on ESPN News and only the sounds of the game (no announcers) on ESPN Classic.
I now know who I want the Lions to draft, the FSU kicker! That guy is legit!
Too bad he's only a RS Freshman...
Especially guys who finish 6th in Heisman voting and strike the pose in a game they lose
That's how it's done Tre. Now as punishment, I sentence you to have to go back to Alabama. I hope you'll learn your lesson there
This one is even better.
especially when you lose...pretty bad indeed
I'm pretty sure that with the four team playoff, presumably no more than one from any conference, the SEC's dominance will probably be seen as just a myth. I mean, you'll actually have to play two other teams outside of your conference that are ranked top 100.
Hopeful for more Blue in the post season, gang!
your presumptions would be wrong. I don't think the committee has a mandate to take a maximum of one team per conference. Bama would have been in the is year.
...when do we get to play for a champship?
Two more years of course
We have to win a state championship first. Then we can worry about a conference championship second.
Beat Appalachian State!
Great game. I look forward to seeing Michigan on this stage. I feel like 2015 could be that year, maybe even next year if things fall into place.
Exactly what gives you that impression???
F.U.C.K THE S.E.C
Saban, slow the hell down with your hand-talking. He reminds me of a third base coach sending signs, it's ridiculous.
