a gif would be better
well that's just, like, your opinion, man
a gif would be better
We had just scored a TD...I was so alarmed/confused/freaked out.
because stonum was not the receiver he thought Denard should have thrown to and he was worried that it would have come down as an int. I was looking for the egg he was laying.
Might be the face after he leaves DB's office if the OSU game doesn't go well.
wow, good one.
i thought so
Because he could stop hearing people bitch all the time.
This team is 7-4, just like Iowa.
In terms of records, we are just like Iowa. Unfortunately, all four of Iowa's losses were heart breaking last minute types. I'll take the progress our offense has made this year as a sign of good things to come in the future, but our four losses do not compare to Iowa's losses.
but at the end of the day, four losses are four losses.
You are right, but do you also feel that if our losses were close and in games where we had a chance to win less people would whine and complain?
They won last week and listening to the radio post-game sounded like the team lost. Same the week before.
This team could be 10-1 with the first loss today and we would hear people complaining.
Iowa's loses were closer and/or against better teams. They smoked Sparty (Michigan lost by 17), the smoked Penn State (Michigan lost by 10).
Ask yourself this, if the season ended today, which 7-4 team would go to a better bowl game? I'll guess that it's Iowa.
If the season ended today, as per your hypo, the bowl game would get the pick of the team they want. Michigan is a better draw in terms of national spotlight than Iowa. So yea, I would disagree.
You can disagree, but I'm pretty sure Iowa would be a better draw. They've played much better football than Michigan. They too have a national brand, especially with their recent success. It may not be Michigan's national brand, but it's still strong. They also travel just as well as Michigan fans.
I won't quarrel with you. Too much respect.
I apprecaite well thought out arguments on why. I just don't think Michigan offers bowls a better draw this year. Michigan isn't a guarantee of a good game. Still a lot of errors. Defense is what it is. Our national brand is a lot of name and not a lot of production.
A better bowl will want the best teams with national power. Iowa offers the best combination. The bowls don't want to risk a dud or blowout. Michigan is a risk there. Iowa offers the better game. That's all I'm saying.
But really, after the two BCS slots and the Cap One bowl, aren't the rest of the B10 spots, save for the Pizza Pizza Bowl kinda just a push in terms of which one is that much better?
Agree with this and the above. I think there's an argument that Michigan's offensive fireworks and the potential for a shootout in the game might be an attraction to some.
Obviously not the only thing to take into account (and I think Iowa would be taken over UM), but there is a bit more appeal of UM's offense than Iowa's.
does how well your fan base travels get factored into which team is chosen? I heard somewhere that the bowls take that into consideration based on the money it will produce for the venue and the surrounding area.
That's funny, but if you really think about the whole situation, RR is clearly in over his head and with the (deserved) beating he's taken in three seasons, if DB does the right thing and axes him before next season, I think RR will be the most relieved man in college football .
You should know the 'right thing' is subjective. For me, the right thing is offering him an extension.
He is not over his head, this is the best offense this school and conference has ever witnessed, even with the turnovers. Denard is the first 1500/1500 player and a true #1 back is coming in next season. The defense has 5 true freshmen.
The only people that would want to offer RR an extension are the blind faith UM fans and the residents of the states of Ohio, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and all of the MSU fans. Aren't you happy to be in that company, that should tell you something? When someone is so blinded, it's not worth my time arguing the position. His 3 season record speaks for itself.
You are trying to corner me by making a fairly bad argument. Coah Rodriguez gives this team the best opportunity for this team to win in 2011 and 2012.
And really, this isn't my first rodeo with this topic on this board, and it appears to be yours. So please, bring your A-game next time.
I hope I came across as a dick, becasue that was my intention with you. Normally I am far from that on here, but dude, you're bringing it out in me tonight.
With DR's numbers this year, taking into consideration how much he has improved since this time last year. I see a number of coaches simply converting DR to a Percy Harvin type but RR turned this guy into a star in the making in just one year.
Quit bringing out Bryan's dick!
Denard is the first 1500/2000 player. Which is even cooler!
ObjectiveUMfan, I'm donating my points towards you never being able to start a thread.
All I wanted was a thread that didn't have somebody saying RR could be fired.
Eat a fat dick.
Have no idea what you're talking about but here's the HD torrent:
Did anyone see this rumored Greg Robinson wolverine plush toy that he was carrying around? Is that a joke?
I've seen it, it exists
Wtf is going here? I feel really weird and want things to change.
I hope someone asks about this at the monday presser.
GERG has completly lost it..... can't wait to see what Brian thinks of this.
I honestly want to cry after seeing this. Is that the gopher from caddyshack?
Les Miles would be jealous seeing something like this... I think GERG might actually have lost his mind...
Someone posted a pic of it in another thread. Looked like he was shoving it in Demens' face.
EDIT: I see someone posted it here too.
he's talking about during the ncaa press conference when Drew Sharp asked if he would be fired!!! forgot where it is..
The whole sequence around that. As suggested, the gif is much needed.
Sorry, bud... best i could do. Someone far more talented than me at such things will no doubt get you what you need.
Man that was tough to see. Whatever you think of him, the man is giving everything he's got.
when ESPN came back from commercial after the first M touchdown. Try the 3:02:50 mark on the ESPN3 replay.
Bryan, for some reason, I can’t post to your last post?
Anyway, if you think my argument is so weak, find a Buckeye, Badger, Spartan, Hawkeye or Nittany Lion and ask them if they want RR fired after this season?
If you think 2011 or 2012 will be better seasons that 2010, I would love to smoke what you’re smoking. It would also help me thru another season should RR not get the axe before next season.
I bet you pray every nite for future powerhouse opponents like Deleware St, Massachusetts, Bowling Green, Miami (Ohio), Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, the “new” Notre Dame, Toledo (oh wait, we lost to them), Indiana, Minnesota and Purdue so we have something to add to our “win” column?
Wow what a jackass. You don't think its going to get better? The majority of the team for the first time under Rod will be majority upperclassmen.
If you're going to troll, at least have some knowledge of football.
I'm downloading the game right now, when it's finished I'll make a gif of it. I'll post it either sometime tonight or tomorrow depending on how long the download takes and how late I'm up tonight.
Does anyone know around what time in the game it happened? I know it was after we scored a TD, but I don't remember which one.
It was after the commercial break which followed our first TD
so once you download the torrent, what program did you use to cut and create a gif?
I use Gom Player to burst capture the images and ImageReady to make the actual gif.
Gom Player is free: http://www.gomlab.com/eng/GMP_download.html
ImageReady used to be packaged with Photoshop, but I'm not even sure if it exists anymore. If you find some creative way to get Photoshop CS2 it should come with ImageReady.
This is basically what I do, but I've made a few adjustments (like capturing every 0.05 seconds and the playback is 0.07 seconds) that I find make better looking gifs.
This gom player burst feature is going to make my gifs infinitely better. Thank you for this. As far as composing the actual .gif gimp is free and works really well.
My old man, a southerner with a penchant for colorful language would say, "That man looks so uptight you couldn't get a pin up his ass with a jackhammer."
I shudder to think what face RR would have made if we hadn't scored then.
