UTL II Open Thread Second Half
the trenches. Need OLine to get some holes to eat the clock in the 2nd half.
I would like to see the Dline get some pressure on Rees
They flushed Rees out on the INT play.
For 20 mins before becoming a nervous wreck again
Lines need to play better, but overall I'm happy. Gallon and Gardner are studs.
Chesson is a destroyer of men as a blocker. Jesus H. Christ.
Yeah, I cackled on that block. He hurts people.
Unfortunately, he's been invisible in the passing game. Gardner-to-Gallon is great, but we're approaching Marquise Walker territory here.
Don't let off the gas boys. Make them remember this ass kicking.
Gallon is a beast! I agree both lines need to play better in the second half.
Hopefully big Al keeps up the good play calling.
Gameplan has been great. Given the inability to get a push inside and the low level of receiver talent apart from Gallon, getting 27 points is outstanding.
Unimaginable during the Carr era.
Michigan's O needs to keep on keeping on, and the D needs to step it up (though that interception was really nice).
The defense has been pedestrian, but I think that is mostly due to not being able to rush 4 for pressure. It begins and ends with the hosses up front. If they start getting penetration, we may get more purple face.
Live TV freaks me out.
Eminem is very high.
So, who was the genius that thought that putting Eminem on live TV was a good idea?
Kirk, you're great but...
I love it. Like a young Lewan.
the D at this point. Better find a way to get pressure.
he has to bring pressure. our 4 ain't cutting it
Are they ever going to call holding or any penalty on ND?
Home cooking from that ACC refs. How did we ever agree to that?
Gashing the D like crazy. C'mon guys!
Impressive. Rees just picking them apart.
He needs to change things.
90 yard drive and it was fairly easy.
Is their O line really that good or is ours that bad?
No pressure on Rees at all.
Toussaint needs to be standing on the sideline
what is the best site to stream the game?
Michigan is still a ways away from having strong lines. Frustrating, but it is the truth.
Come on! Refs need to call both ways too
What happened to the whole just kick the ball out of the endzone routine?
Need a stop
?..Dial one up GMat
I'm not sure my nerves can handle much more of this.....
Somehow someway they need to get a stop. The offense is carrying this team. It's time for the defense to step up.
All I want is one holding call on ND. I mean jeeeez.
Should give GMatt a chance to squeeze the field. Need a stop.
That was a big stop. Now just run this clock down.
Just don't do that at all and do the worst thing possible.
that stand was beautiful.
That IS dialing it up!
Now finish them, offense!
GO BLUE GO USA
not a beautiful thing
Truly awful decision.
The run sucks anyhow.
Huge kerfunkle. What a colossal mess by Borges and Gardner!
Worst. Play. Ever.
....HOKE is buying some time for DG to calm down
Ending, 8 minute td drive
Yakety Sax. If we lose this....lord have mercy.
Sorry, Al has called a good game, but the last series is all on him. Go uber conservative for two plays, then put your team in a low chance opportunity on 3rd and long deep in your own end with a QB still learning his game and bad things happen.
this looks like the Ohio game last year. Al called a good game first half and is sittin on the ball in second
This is not good at all.
stop killing yourselves! And stop getting hurt!
calf cramps, come on.
Welp. That was a crappy couple of plays. Let's get a quick 3&out. C'mon!!!
I hope you have thick armor.
Special teams and penalties.....brutal
Why is everything going wrong now and no one is executing? Are we all really that fatigued that no one can execute anything? Man the eff up.
in Michigan history. Unbelievable.
Is happening. Int, td, calf injuries, now punts!!! Make it stop!!!
It's like we want ND to be in the game, to entertain the masses.
Wow, just wow...man up!!
can that be the end of the shittiness? I am ready t go back to the winning now
Fudge sticks! Almost had em. Luck of the Irish.
Great teams rise to the occasion; now is the time.
Now we need to take it down the field and score.
Stay tough Blue!
no matter what we do here, please please please please please no prevent defense on ND.
Herbie is an idiot. Those were brh legit calls. At best the first one was holding.
after 5 yds.
that's an nfl rule. doesn't apply here.
(thankfully. I hate the rule.)
Props to Al.
4 fucking minutes. Lets go!
Wes Welker type of move. I like.
He was clearly limping on that PI call. The kid is gutting it out.
Special Teams need to tighten it up.
The right to rush four!
How do they always have these Rudolph clones
I dunno but I hope our new guys are Rudolph clones too.
Hate the prevent.
like play lol....yayyyy
brain kelly sucha tool
Tommy Rees, Pinball Wizard.
Bout to be a lottttta salty and ND fans after this one.
Would've liked a naked bootleg there.
Great game. Fantastic way to leave this chapter with ND.
