"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Maybe it's just me, but I see "Purdon't" as being in the same vein as "Spartina," "DickRod" and the rest.
See, that's your problem. The ASS doesn't like MLive-caliber insults.
Let all the other sites stoop to name calling. MGoBlog should be the "Leaders and Best" of the bloggesphere. (sp?)
Don't let the charts fool you. Mgoblog is the 4chan of blogs.
Hook and Ladder.
Why on earth is Purdue favored by 13 points???
not -13.....bet much?
Man, you almost gave me a ragin' chub there...
I was about to make an exception to never betting on Mich
I was trying to get a hold of Texas too to see if he wanted to make a little wager on the game......
Isn't it the hook and lateral?
I actually looked it up and surprised there's so much discussion behind it:
It says it's also known as the hook and ladder in that link...
it was Saturday already.
I would like to see Roundtree break his record this weekend in the win against Purdue.
Is Siller their QB?
Siller is out for the year. Their QB depth chart consists of 2 freshman :
I honestly couldn't remember if he was hit by that flu going around West Lafayette that eats ACLs.
(we have our own strain in Ann Arbor that enjoys ankles)
Actually, Henry is more hurt than Siller right now and they've been warming up Justin Siller's arm the last few weeks he just wasn't able to run.
Coaches say that they'll watch him run this week and if he can he'll be good to go.....
Somehow Justin Siller will make a miraculous recovery, be able to run, and go Siller 2008 on us. This time though we have Tate and Denard and some non-freshman offensive weapons. They have no one else on offense. I suggest we put three people on Siller (Gordon, Vinopal and MM) and let the other 8 deal with the rest of the Purdue offense.
I think it's going to be a helluva of a show in West Lafayette after the past two seasons.
every time we score a TD
Seems like Oregon does, even though part of me looks at Chip Kelly every time and says: "A$$hole". I like the aggressive play call and it seems to be a very tactical move as whatever team they're playing has a noticeable drop in enthusiasm after he goes for 2. Still think he's an a$$.
Michigan - 42 Purdue - 34
74-70 in 4 OTs
You could be right, but I think your score is impossible in a OT game, or at least unlikely. I don't see a team kicking a field goal down 7 in OT
Is that your prediction for the score at halftime?
Worst Big Ten team we'll see all year. Worst pass offense in the country, period.
Will is be the worst pass offense in the country after the game?
"Penn State is playing their second-string QB, a former walk-on. Worst pass offense we'll see all year."
All of us, 9 days ago.
That being said, Go Blue! We're totally winning.
As it turns out, he's a lot better than we thought after watching him strafe Northwestern too. Purdue, on the other hand, has played whichever QB we're likely to see and the results have not been good.
Unless Siller gets healthy and plays QB, in which case dammit.
Yeah, but this time we have stats to back it up. Purdue averages 4.7 yards per attempt - only four teams in the past six years have been that bad.
Purdue will throw the ball all over the field and make Michigan's defense make open field tackles. The good news is that they have one QB who can run but not throw and one who can throw but not run...I think Michigan will win 45-31.
If our defense continues to get better, and our offense plays well and limits turnovers/stupid penalties we should win relatively easily
41 points and 45 points in regulation the last two weeks.
Only four more points after five more turnovers from the week before. Three FGs (+1 missed) and six punts. Definite improvement.
Denard has had arguably his 3 best games of the year on the road. So there's that.
Denard loves himself some Indiana!
Go 'head, score 65 for all we care...
Wait, that might just be my baseless blind arrogant over-confidence in the offense's ability to glow white hot like molten metal speaking...
Well, not quite baseless...
Every game is a concern for us, we're generally a realistic fanbase that dips between light optimism and wallowing sorrow.
But hey, I'd much rather be that rather than 'of course we're going to win a championship every year' Notre Dame fanbase (also: Washington Redskins fans, Ohio State Fans).
Kenny Demens in pursuit for a tackle to run through Purdue's sideline and split Danny Hope in half.
Here is a current pic of this turd of a coach, so next week we can have a before and after Demens changes his life.
Love to see Demens 'Boiler Up' the catepillar on Danny Hope's face...
