All the sports team I cheer for have spent the past decade crushing my soul, so I have always considered Henne to Manningham the greatest sports memory of my life. It has been topped. Someone get this on youtube so I can use it to cheer me up whenever I'm sad.
Tate to Mathews
Great to see Mathews make a game winning play like that....
Both were great plays. I think Henne's is #1, and Tate's is #1a, just because today we could have still kicked a tying FG.
Nonetheless, Mathew's was a hell of a catch! I also wanna get some highlights on YouTube ASAP!
Wangler to Carter
Grbac to Howard
Henne to Edwards...
FORCIER TO MATHEWS.
Dreisbach to Hayes, a personal favorite.
I love me some Mercury Hayes. Is that a WR name or what?
Henne to Manningham, no?
Don't forget Jackson to Weathers, Ohio State QB Stanley Jackson's pick-six to Andre Weathers in the 1997 OSU game.
I always loved Jason Avant, so Matthews as Avant 2.0 is fine with me.
What a catch!
It's MATHEWS. There is only one T.
I'm never gonna spell it wrong again!!
Woa, you guys need to relax. Sparty is dominating us for in-state recruits.
Would it be wrong to say I feel like Mich won 2 games today?
Instead, you should hold a moment of silence.
Eh, that's kind of a Sparty attitude. MSU losing worth a hearty chuckle, but I'll never put it on the level of a Michigan win.
MSU is THE school in this state....riiiiiiight
i cannot party enough tonight!
Were getting the best commitments from in state. And were focusing more on the south, where the speed is...
What makes this touchdown so special isn't just the specific game context (WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!), but the larger context of the program. After the slow decline and the disastrous 3-9 season, this is the sort of thing that can help define an entire era. This can help make Michigan RichRod's program.
Oh yeah....OH YEAH!!!
You could see the tears in Lou Holtz eyes. You could see the glee shimmering off Mark Mays balding head.
EDIT: you could see the cream in my pants.
Trust me, sitting in a house with Ohio State fans and alums only and going down 3 with little time to go ... well needless to say this is a great feeling today.
is now officially born. What a game! Tate Forcier has the most incredible poise I've ever seen in a true freshman QB. Unbelievable win!
...has a sore throat from cheering. All in for Michigan. In Rod We Trust.
Great f'n game.
I have a migraine and an extremely sore throat from screaming all day. The best and most maddening game ever.
voice and sore nuckles wen i punched the ceiling on accident wen jumping up and down
My voice is so hoarse screaming at the Pallazzo casino Sports bar! It was awesome having a few Wolverine supporters there and a bunch of Irish being silent at the end of the game!
He was clutch twice on that final drive. OMG, that was friggin awesome.
Seeing Forcier today, I couldn't think of a good comparison other than Roethlisberger in his rookie season for the Steelers. He actually made plays, not just "managing games" like other rookie qbs. And while Henne was great as a freshman he didn't dominate games the Forcier did at points today.
the play wasnt so spectacular, but i agree the context was huge.
if you watch a classic michigan game from the past decade that we won, almost inevitably the game is won on a spectacular reception at the end of the game. usually involving some sort of fade pattern (which is more aesthetically pleasing than a simple out route). i believe edwards and terrell both had some goodies of this kind. and of course manningham in the state game was classic.
guys, i think in the next 4 years tate will surpass this one once or twice.
