Seriously though...are we the Super Bowl for every team we play?
Vs. Indiana open thread
We just aren't very good.
We are terrible.
No, he has a very long way to go for "trust" to be associated with his name.
...enjoying the fact that he's calling a good game and worry about the defense, which is not playing well at all.
I was shaking my head at every prediction that Indiana would only put up 20-something today. Looks like I was right.
For being right you get.... A lonely night and a terrible hangover.
Damn. Now you're right.
From a game in the NCAA?
Nice play man. Nice.
Watch - Stribling will finally come up with one and make it a pick-six.
Everything inside and in front huh Gmatt?
Here's an interesting stat: Ohio State is ranked 30 spots LOWER (!) than Indiana in Pass Defense at 106th.
We better hold the ball last because this game is yet another example of Mattisons inability to defend the pass
Mattison isn't out there. I doubt he would be doing better than Strib though.
My computer can't keep up with IU's offense.
Wow defense is mind-bendingly awful today. They havent done anything right in a while
Cue the Benny Hill music....
I 'm usually a positive true blue believer, but I can't help thinking here comes the Devin pick six. He's do. Please be wrong, but this Benny Hill day says otherwise.
2 fracking plays and already driving. This is terrible.
in this game that pretty much amounts to a good defensive play
Fire Mattison thread.
We have no answers.
69-68 Michigan - Final score. Can I win stuff?
I'm just happy we have a two score lead right now.
IU just scored again.
Rich rod bullshit. Our program is essentially a joke
They better effing keep scoring, because this defense is dead.
They need an IU mistake. Oh, and maybe make a play on that mistake.
As long as we hold them to field goals and respond with touchdowns, I will be satisfied.
We each keep scoring and we will win by a small margin
Fuck this defensive performance. This is horrendous
Eat this up , next time we play it will be 9-6 in a trash tornado.
Indiana is good.
We like to say that when a team is rampaging us but this is a team that lost to Navy at home and is currently 3-3
err... scratch that. Damn it...
LOL what a joke.
How many yards are they going to give up? Embarrassing.
And I don't like it. Not one bit.
Say a Hail Mary, we need the offense to win this
Tell team Fat Tits they can all find other jobs. Fat Tits, by the way, is the new nickname for this coaching staff.
That's good! I like that
Is it cool if I don't call them that? Just, not what I'd go with.
That is all...
Get out. Now.
He coaches Arizona in football.
Clearly he's still in Ann Arbor.
We need to inside kick after every score. I'm serious. I'll take my chances with trying to get the ball back. IU is going to score a TD anyway whether it's 80 yards or 50.
Onside, not inside.
Actually not a bad idea
Ok a few. Indiana is thrashing Michigan's D in the Big House. Indiana.
Make sure they don't have the ball last
It took a week to get the offense together. Now we have two weeks for State. Well first let's finish this game I'm kind of getting nervous now. Come on defense you have got to get stops for us let's go and play.
If only UM could power out a long drive and give those guys a breather.
College football needs to change the rules. The hurryup stuff tilts things way too much in the offense's favor. You shouldn't be able to snap the ball with 20 seconds on the playclock unless it's the end of the game.
Stop crying and stop them.
Feels like that Illinois game under RichRod
How long has it been since we got a stop on IU? I don't think we've gotten one in this half. Seriously. So it'd be sometime back in the 2nd quarter
You are correct.
One stop would be HUGE.
Can't wait to hear Brady's comments after the game. "Well, you know...we need to play Michigan football." Blah, blah, blah!
Brady joke " well... This is was a very good Indiana team! Well.... This is michigan! ". I can't take it anymore. Fucking embarrassing
I don't wear red, this is Michigan, blah blah blah
This is the worst defensive performance by Michigan ever. Worse than Illinois because that one was 3 OTs. This is just ridiculous how fast we're giving up scores. Was there any coaching done this week???
interesting to know what the defensive players are being told on the sidelines between possessions.
Even if they didn't prepare properly all week, shouldn't there be some in-game correction?? Shouldn't someone be on the sideline right now telling the defense they need to run back to the line of scrimmage after every play??
Our defense is getting just shredded. Web looks like Braxton miller
IU - 5 possessions, 4 touchdowns and a field goal.
Press your CBs, 1 deep safety and take the other safety and spy the QB/take away short crossing routes over the middle.
Most unprepared I have ever seen a defense. Can't even stop 1 freaking play.
That damn Toussaint fumble is looming large now.
Or a vintage Devin pick or fumble
Just waiting for Borges to get conservative , you know that's next
I think they told Norfleet to catch the ball and run straight. Since that big loss he has done nothing but that.
Somewhere RichRod is smiling.
Now THIS is football........
Yeah, the Giants are winless...you are correct.
Get it to Gallon all day.
How can Gallon continually be open?
Where's Funchess, they've got like 5 guys on Gallon and they still can't cover him.
Please don't turn the ball over.
Am I insane for wanting to hire the IU offensive coordinator?
Would it ruin our recruiting to run that type of offense? What is the downside?
It's f'n incredible.
On the other side, we can't run but have still outscored IU. I don't think this is b/c of the type of system we run but rather a couple of our players are uber-talented.
but our offense isn't doing too bad either...
Agreed. If you can't beat em, hire them.
...that we're going to go to running the ball to keep the defense off the field.
and they just put up the total numbers for Devin, 504 a new Michigan record...
THIS IS A GREAT GAME!@!
Is the clock going backwards?
Gibbons's miss and their guy's career-long at the end of the half are looming large, unfortunately.
I don't even care they slip in the stretch every thirty plays , I'm happy!!!
And there's the inevitable.
This is one of those games we just have to survive, unfortunately. It sucks that we can't have both sides of the ball show up in the same game.....
Oh shit... Pain
That one girl's face on tv said it all.
Hallelujah! Defense finally steps up!
How can that happen
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!?!?!?!?
Never again under center.
the game. no faith in the D
There is the Devin we know! Wondering if he was gonna show up tonight! Smh
It's just a game it's just a game.....WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK....gonna take my meds now.
That's chicks face was priceless. Tell me someone got a picture of that.
There's the stop they needed.
didn't get it all the way back to QB
Gallon can still break the NCAA record for receiving, even if we lose.
Flow all the way to the fucking ball guys!!!!!!
HOLY SHIT SOMEBODY MADE A PLAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you, Gordon!
I was never worried.
Suck my defenses!!!!!
cause that WR was wide open.
That was like a fly ball. Let's not get ahead of ourselves.
Called it. No one will believe me but I called it.
FUCK YOU BORGES
oh hey d, there you are.
Again under center.
...is time came off the clock.
Fucking under center bullshit.
Borgess gonna borg
This is a Michigan thread not a NY Giants thread.
I didn't realize their starting QB was out on that play, what fate!
9.5 in the box.
Still not positive it won't work. Hahaha. This is so terrible I am laughing.
Manball check...nothing still.
Nope... I form still doesnt work
Great playcalls there
I wanna kill you for going to this stupid fucking I formation.
Quality trolling there.
Obvious troll is obvious
All we want, you suck. You are the worst type of Michigan fan. Please don't be one anymore.
Fuck your mother bigblue1981.
That was wholly unnecessary.
Go cheer for Calipari
She actually got an Aussie makeover recently.
Gardner for Heisman!
You made me lol
Why does it have to be like this???????
field goal would have done no good
DG you are okay
Is Gardner limping?
He's carrying our entire defense, I'm sure that wears on a man.
Offense is playing with a lot of heart... Just need the defense to make a stand over the next 6 minutes.
Ha, what is this defensive stand thing you speak of?
Power failure now please
I want to be mad at the defense for this but they've been bailing us/Devin out all year, he owes them one.
No shit, good call.
THIS IS SOME EXCITING FOOTBALL HUH?
Actually, we may need two more but I like the way the offense is going...
I'm not quite sure what the heck is going on in this game, but it's hurting my head.
If nothing else, this game will bump last week's game off the "instant classic" rotation.
Hell of an athlete ( sorry about religion) When he figures all of it out there all in trouble.
This made me laugh a lot. Thank you and come on defense get this stop now.
...sad to say cause I don't want a "gimme"
But if Roberson can't go...huge blow for them. The other kid has just been "alright"
Gallon still needs 37 yards...
That's akin to the South losing Stonewall Jackson, if he can't go that may be all we need...
...he is absolutely unbelievable.
If he can get more consistent, next year could be special.
Two good defensive plays in a row!
HE dislocated his thumb!!! That was gross!
If we get a few stops we can still win by 35
I fear 3rd down on defense like the plague.
Is Frank Clark back in the Witness Protection Program? Where are u Frank?
with 4 minutes...no, maybe not yet...
How the hell do they hang on to all these difficult catches?
PICKED OFF!! WOO!!
burn the tape. Never speak of it again
And get the hell outta here
rather beat up? Some are missing parts of the "U" and others the "I"; this has been a hard hitting game...
That would mean someone is hitting and or tackling someone. I think you are seeing things.
Hit gallon one more time
The way this game has gone, we need to be aggressive and try to score
First down please pretty please pretty please
No shitty conservative play calling here!
Still want a couple firsts
FUCK YOU BORGES
Hate this under center shit still
Has over 500 yards of offense!
C'mon! Stop playing conservative!!!!!!!!
Borges playing for the punt.
Up and run so we can give them back the ball
Man, this offense is just moving the ball at will and now you do THIS?
Just absolutely stupid.
Unbelievable. What an idiot. Laughable at this point.
We'll make this interesting. Roll Gardner out here
Big gain for Funchess!
Gardner got 500 passing yards?
Borges you done good today!
Seriously?! More freakin' conservative bullshit! If you get first downs, they lose!!
Hi deserved shit last week. Right now he is doing exaclty what he should be doing, burning Indiana's timeouts. He called a great game today, Give credit where it is due.
9 in the box somebody is gonna be open
great playcall on 3rd down.
Let these records never be broken again.
Ball game. Gallon looking to come up a little shy of the all time record. But a hell of a game and effort. Love that guy
I should say it should be ball game.
Would be useful
You old shit.
Don't you mean "We"? (Since you are totally a M fan and not a troll)
Thank god we didn't just play safe there.
Kevin Koger sighting on the sidelines.
they played some inspired football. That said, yeah we could have done better on defense...
That we play down to our competition...
Who cares? What are we going to do? We have some issues. Survive. 6-1.
there you go
I think it'll take a big offensive game against MSU/OSU for people to do that.
Another first down!
Fitz, you're alright man
when the opposing defense is beat down tired, good run by Toussaint...
Someone make a gif out of that last Fitz run!
looks like he is starting to run with authority and quickness again. Good for him.
I think it's just the fact that we are playing Indiana's defense
751 Yards of offense? FIRE BORGES
It was totally unacceptable.
His playcalling lost us the game, period.
Bring back the upvote!
Amazing what happens when you give Fitz some blocking.
Best offense output ever by a M team. Give Borges a raise!!!
OH NO CONSERVATIVE PLAYCALLING BORGES YOU SUCK oops it's a TD.
Onside kick please
What a performance, way to stay in this game. Fitz, great job!
...that doesn't mean that MANBALL will work vs. the rest of the B1G
We got man balled by IU receivers!
The Gmatt apologist have to say
I had complete faith in the Defense, even after last week's game. After today, I'm not so sure what to think. They clearly cleaned up at the very end, but 47pts, 500+ yds to Indy? My world is upside down.
On a side note...
Shawn Crawford 80 yd td first play St Eds vs St Ignatius.
the Spartans yet? A little concerned MSU stopped these guys to like 28 points...
It could be because MSU defense is much better than ours
Michigan should have this now. Indiana is going to need to start chucking up three's to come back now. Nice to see the young guys for Michigan hang in there after the loss of Burke and Hardaway.
Lord G's Us.
I will take this. Offense was put into a position to win. Defense has two weeks to analyze what went wrong. IU is pretty good at the offense. They also run a system that gives us problems. Need to improve but there is some life to this team.
After all the people flipping out about funk and borges...School record yards today. LOL Now let the complaining about mattison/hoke/and other defensive coaches begin.
You do realize this game is exactly why people are complaining about Borges right? Where was this offense last week against a better team?
Amen. Plus this is against Indiana defense.
We had an awesome offensive scheme last year against IOWA before the OSU game last year too (and see what happened at "THE GAME"...)
I'll wait until the MSU game to solidify my opinion.
We scored 40 points+ last week and We have them 14 with two picks early right? Execution, protection and consistency is our issue a product of being young. Our coach drop the end of the game last week but our execution of the plan not the plan is what failed.
hmmm. where have I seen this before. I know I've seen it somewhere.
I sense something, a presence I have not felt since...
That we just broke the all-time Michigan record for total offense.
RR had all time record before that...so what are you trying to say?
That you negative people who dont have a clue about coaching ftootball don't have a scapegoat this week. I don't think anyone here thinks richrod is anything but a genius as an OC (not a head coach). Therefore Borges beating that record against a B1G team is awesome.
Next game we play will be. 9-6 so enjoy this
This really doesn't mean anything to me. It's Indiana.
Put up 63 on a team that matters and I'll be impressed.
Well your comment really doesn't mean anything to the team. This is good because you come off as the stereotypical entitled fan that deserves nothing from the team but demands everything.
I mean you get 63 points 560 yes from the QB 21-29 5 total TDs. 369 yards from one receiver but yet it means nothing.
We almost beat the over by ourselves..
I'm doing a t-shirt design tonight with Borges, a pile of chicken wings, and the # 751.
#5 play vs state or did the white kid?
I called it. First team to 60 wins.
Only 'cause we got conservative! /s
8.5 point spread. Gamblers are on the edge of their seats.
Our pass rushers are faked out of their jocks with alarming ease.
You still care about defense? What are you mad?????
So do they kick a field goal to get the 50?
40 secs ever
Michigan 63, Indiana 47. McGary with a double double - 17 points and 12 rebounds. Sweet.
Their offense owned us till we got that last score. Great win, come on MSU
Can we keep playing Indiana the rest of the season?
19-0 at home, baby!
Was the qb vs state, sundfeld or Roberson? Anyone know?
A majority of the snaps were taken by sudfeld.
I know our d sucked but Roberson had something to do with that, big difference between those 2 qb's
but Sudfeld played the most and both td passes were Robersons...
get any semblance of a pass rush.
pinned ears back and went
And they put pressure on the defense, no question. On the other hand, I saw a lot of poor tackling out there today and that is something which is inexcusable.
We started the season with a stubborn dedication to the "pro set" only to have Denard and company settle into running the spread 75% of the time for the remainder of the season(Iowa...groan). We finished 11-2.
So who is looking forward to the return to I Formation against MSU in a couple weeks? You know it is coming. It's a road game.
If it weren't true
