BTN's game of the week. Kickoff just started.
further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
It's also on ESPNU. Second half about to start
Funchess PBU first
Beat me to it.
my DVR----the complete, unedited version.
Its also on the Food Network.
It's the segment on Chicken dishes.
Spoiler Alert: Eminem is strange.
I'm putting the over/under for number of times I watch this game this week at 5. I've already watched two replays.
The crowd really sounds incredible on TV. I can only imagine what it must have sounded like in person.
Granted, we were yelling so loud that the lady in front of us left after the first quarter. I felt bad, but, like, if I'm there, I'm supposed to yell loud, right?
you did your job. We need more loud individuals like you.
For the record, I stood, screamed and clapped the entire game. Had ND fans right in front of me. I let them have a full dose of screaming throughout the game.
If you don't want to hear people yelling, I have no idea why you would go to a major college football game. At least bring earplugs or something.
MUCH louder in person than tv suggests
and the sound from the replays and the highlights didn't compare to the roar that happened live when Roundtree caught that pass. Sometimes you can hear the sound change when the ref turns on his mic and they try to hear him (like after Roundtree's catch) and the sound overwhelms everything
I was there for that too and thought the same thing watching it later. This year, it was when ND was going for it on fourth down. That was as loud as I've heard the place outside of the roundtree catch in UTL 1, and you can hardly tell on tv.
When will we know the kickoff time and tv coverage for Uconn?
Either tomorrow or next Sunday. The networks pick start time 6 or 12 days prior.
Would think the UConn game would be a noon kickoff on like ESPN2 but who knows.
On what other games there are. M going to a smaller program like uconn on the road is kind of a novelty. If the pickings are slim that day nationally I could see it being a regional abc 3:30 game. Especially considering than M may be a top 10 team at the time.
Watch ND's linebackers when you watch the replay. They're nuts.
They were super aggressive all game.
That's what I mean, nuts as in crazy, not nuts as in awesome. Really, really irresponsible.
It's not a new phenomenon. The difference is that this year, we actually made them pay with Gallon. They didn't back off and got torched repeatedly through the air.
Yet another reason why I'm not that concerned about our running game. Fitz pretty much maximized his possible yards against ND.
That and the zone read. That's what UM did in 2011 against the hyper aggressive ND LBs in the second half. Denard ripping those huge all came from the LBs crashing hard in the RBs.
That was my thought as welll re: Diaco. And yeah, I have the same thoughts about the running game. Would like to get a back over 100 next week though.
Watching this game again is like falling back asleep and having a favorite dream start again . . .
Starting to witness the hundred holding calls against Michigan while Beyer and Clark have their shoulder pads popping out every other play. The recent one against Miller was particularly egregious.
Didn't realize Gallon had such a huge game. Gardners end zone INT was really the only glaring mistake by the offense I think.
Asking this here is far better than starting another thread:
The Notre Dame DL really did not allow us to open up a strong running game, short of getting to the edges from time to time. The Notre Dame OL did not allow us to get to the QB much at all.
Is this the best set of line play that we're going to face all season? Have we seen the worst of it until late November?
Actually I thought almost all the throws to Butt and Funchess were underthrown. At least to Funchess, those passes in the endzone should be about 10 feet in the air but they were hitting him chest high and the DBs were batting them down pretty easily. I'm confident that will improve. Chesson was open deep on that first touchdown to Gallon as well, so I'm wondering how many other times he got open down the sideline. He'll start catching some as Gardner tries to spread the ball around more the next few weeks against lesser competition and hopefully he'll be more comfortable going to Chesson by the end of the season. Can't get over how good we looked yesterday though for it being the second game of the season.
Actually, I read that Tuitt had no solo tackles at all. His only real contribution stat-wise was the diving INT-TD.
I read this in a section that was praising the play of Taylor Lewan. They basically said that this is the 2nd top-5 defensive draft pick that Lewan has owned.
I was going to settle for the NFL.
Mr. Settle can go to the NFL after he leaves here.
Is there any video of the UTL I halftime show? I've heard about it but never seen it.
is anyone else as worried about Gallon's hamstrimg as I am? He looked very hobled on that last drive (I just watched the interception/pass interfenence call and he was favoring it badly). Hoke said it was sometuing he would have to continue to work through. it seems like something that could linger the whole season and really damage his effectiveness. I hope I'm really really wrong.
He can rest the next two weeks.
then @PSU. We shouldn't need him too bad till then
This is fun. There are a lot of things I missed when I was brown-out.
Desmond and Vogrich sighting.
Haven't been able to find it anywhere yet. Thought it would be on Mgoblue.com, but nada.
Herby is precient with his game management commentary here.
Anyone hear how that young woman ended up after just getting steamrolled on the sideline at the 9:46 mark of the 4th Q?
was wondering that too. she wasnt moving at all after that hit
Pretty sure I know what you're talking about, since I was horrified watching that collision from my seat in the south end zone. I wasn't ready for the game to go on, although everybody else seemed to be. It looked awful, but when the net was righted, she stood right up and I saw her wave someone off in a clear "I'm fine" gesture — must've just been tangled if she wasn't moving at first. I was amazed but delighted to see it; maybe the net frame isn't as heavy as the Lacrosse goal it looks like.
Wow that's good to hear. Thanks for the update.
That is one tough lady.
Was that Chris Perry standing next to Steve Everritt?
