"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

My main RB is Marshawn Lynch, not that that did much for me. I’m #3 in the league, but our rules (e.g. PPR) don't favor RBs.

A leg injury is so different than a concussion I don't even think you're a real person.

My two-year-old—who had never been to a football game before—absolutely loved the flyovers. We left at halftime, so we missed out on the bad rain, making it a great day for a kid.

It’s too bad it looks like this won’t reach overtime. The way it’s been so back-and-forth, they might each score 100 points.

Good call, self!

Looks like the ball moves when it hits the ground.

I tried searching for it. No dice. I don’t want to sift through an illegally-obtained torrent to get it. I posted the thread before going to bed and never even saw any replies. :(

Periodically, and without warning, I will feel the need to scream, “TYLER ECKER PITCH THE DAMN BALL” to this day.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||My thoughts exactly.||
My thoughts exactly.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||We’re in the driver’s seat to an extent||
If we can beat Iowa and Nebraska and Sparty loses to Iowa, we’re going to the championship game. I think the players are going to be fired up next week.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Yes.||
This is a real risk.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Taylor-made?||
FYI, the phrase is “tailor made,” implying that it’s been designed to fit, like tailored clothes. Not Taylor Made.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Yep. And IIRC, the receiver||
Yep. And IIRC, the receiver was very well-covered. I remember not wanting him to throw it, and he made the right choice.

Why not just call it the Wolverine?

Anybody find the hidden tickets?

I thought McColgan’s first-down reception was a good one. Pales in comparison to the rest, obviously.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||So it wasn’t really||
So it wasn’t really Delmas who dodged the bullet, but the kids in the other car…
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Gutierrez!||
I’m sure I’m the only MGoBlogger still watching this (and flipping back-and-forth to the Nevada-Fresno game), but check it out—our favorite long-term backup Matt Gutierrez is in the game for Omaha in relief of Jeff Garcia.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Great, now I need to find VS||
Great, now I need to find VS on my TV again.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||You’re probably right. Either||
You’re probably right. Either way, 97.1 will be almost undigestible if Michigan loses.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Nice try, Tressel.||
Nice try, Tressel.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Wow||
6'4" and 240 lbs.? And a 4.1 40? Unbelievable!
|4 years 29 weeks ago||If I were the DC||
I’d instruct the team to punch the opposing QB in the face on the first play. Have a walk-on do it, get him ejected. The whole game, go on the attack. Jam the shit out of receivers at the LOS, hit running backs as hard as you possibly can, and get in the QB’s face as much as possible. Make the other team think that the DC is fucking insane and wants his players to kill you. Once you have that, their will to play will be significantly less.

I’m in the same boat, as apparently we all are. Just once I’d like to have a comfortable win where I can sit back and laugh as we shred the other team on offense and stone them on defense.
We’d better beat Purdue or my psyche may collapse.

Maybe, but I like those better.

Turn it in.

Shows a lot about team unity at ASU if they’re stealing from other players.

When did Les Miles accept the Jets’ head coaching position?

Reminds me of Ross Ryan’s hit against CMU a few years ago.

I’m sure if you tried hard enough, you could find plenty of examples of good players looking lost at their positions in 2008.

I can go with that.

Even if they’re counting Roh as an LB, which they must be, this is ridiculous. Maybe they flipped a coin for everything other than QB.

After last year, this is one thing I’m worried about. Transitioning from Tate to Denard, let’s hope they remember and it isn’t lost in dilithium excitement.

I would have preferred to see him redshirt at this point, but he showed he still has some moves.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Slept in.||
I was out late the night before. Turns out I'm not as young as I used to be; I fell asleep watching GameDay and woke up having missed kickoff and a UMass drive.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||But why?||
At this point, isn't it obvious that the top-tier FCS teams are better than bottom-tier FBS teams? Why exclude them?
|4 years 41 weeks ago||He couldn't change the colors||
He couldn't change the colors on the charts? It's very confusing to see OSU represented with blue.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||When does he transfer to||
When does he transfer to Michigan State? Can he use his one year of ineligibility from transferring while he's in jail?
|4 years 46 weeks ago||I never thought that Chad||
I never thought that Chad Henne would do as well in the NFL as he is. Not that I didn't think he had the ability, but I didn't think he'd have a chance.
In college, I would have loved to see Adrian Arrington do more. It's a shame he left early.

Weber's. They have excellent wedding cake, let me tell you.
For drinking: honestly, some of our best drinking nights were at B-dubs. I know it's not an authentic Ann Arbor experience, but they're the one bar that didn't screw up a Four Horsemen.

Great catch by 88. That one would count on Sunday too.

Does anyone care about this stupid fantasy football game the announcers play? Is it that hard to talk about this game? You know, the one we tuned in to watch?

This has happened to me. Swerving around a metal ladder on the freeway makes any morning commute exciting.

What did you expect, logical discourse? Rationality? Saying "Wannstedt" without an 'h'?

The best thing was the moment of realization as you come around that first corner and see that the walls go almost all the way around and you've just crammed in uncomfortably close to somebody because you thought that's as far as it went. Right? Guys?
|5 years 28 weeks ago||Nice!||
He steps in front of the line and then throws a pick. All I can think of right now is the South Park police department.

These days, the phrase "ND upset win" is a little redundant.

14 yard loss one play, then he makes a guy miss. Make up your mind!

Too much NASCAR talk on ESPN these days, amirite?
|5 years 28 weeks ago||Gardner||
Anybody else think the Tate/Denard redshirt comment is RRod pretty much saying he wants to redshirt Gardner next year?
|5 years 29 weeks ago||Can he afford to just leave?||
Can he afford to just leave? There's a pretty big buyout IIRC.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||To me it seems like it's not||
To me it seems like it's not that RR isn't an "offensive innovator," but that he doesn't have enough of a supporting cast to trust the players with more complicated plays.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||It was an atypical onside||
It was an atypical onside kick situation. Calm down; it's not why we lost the game.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||Not only did Fitzgerald||
Not only did Fitzgerald impress, but when they put Mouton back in he gave up a TD run. I'm glad to see the team bench players who aren't playing well and giving other guys a chance.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||I thought special teams were||
I thought special teams were actually a strength today. Sure we missed that XP, but Zoltan kept us in the game by pinning them deep and we had consistently good starting field position with good returns. Really the worst black mark against our special teams is not expecting that onside kick, and you can't fault them for that, really.
|5 years 31 weeks ago||So those sleazy T-shirt||
So those sleazy T-shirt salespeople outside of the Union have for a while been selling shirts with the outline of Ohio and the words "WORST STATE EVER" inside. I recently noticed that underneath, they say "(Ohio)" - I guess they're targeting less intelligent shoppers.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Clicking that link brought||
Clicking that link brought back terrible, terrible memories.
I'm left with only this: http://i.imgur.com/LITTw.jpg

I'm 100% for this, so long as we don't play anyone after Ohio State ever (bowl games aside).
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Not a bad choice. A quick||
Not a bad choice. A quick search of Wikipedia shows me that the only other FBS conferences with all-public schools are the MAC and WAC.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||I just came here to post||
I just came here to post this. I think that DRob couldn't see through the ref, so he threw to someone he could see. Just like 15 yards too far.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||I was just throwing Iowa out||
I was just throwing Iowa out there as an example, mostly because of the distance. I wouldn't miss Indiana.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Just FYI||
Mute: characterized by an absence of sound; quiet.
|5 years 34 weeks ago||That Game||
I spent the majority of that game hitting on a friend of a friend who is now my wife.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||I think Barwis brought out||
I think Barwis brought out that 90-yard run.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Denard||
I'm glad we have him out there and throwing. He needs the experience, clearly, and sometimes the only way you get better is through adversity. Now that he's gone out there and thrown those interceptions, the coaches have some things to show him in film that will make him a better backup QB.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Even Worse||
Earlier, when they were talking about how far Eastern and Michigan's campus are, Chris Martin said it depended on how fast he drove...
|5 years 36 weeks ago||The Way I See It||
6 wins is the new lower boundary for this team. Anything less is a failure (and will cause us to hear about Rich Rod on the "hot seat" all offseason). 6 wins and a bowl game shows progress from last year, but not a lot. 7 wins is good, 8 wins is great, 9+ is amazing. And if we get 12 I'll shave my head.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||How about failing to cut away||
How about failing to cut away from a replay of the previous play, thus missing an entire play (Forcier to Hemingway, maybe)?
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Ring of Blood||
That's actually in the stadium, not on TV coverage. Johnny Sears brought his curse back with him.
|5 years 38 weeks ago||Minor Complaint||
Yeah, but it doesn't list the games as being long enough. I used to make detailed calendars for Michigan football that listed each game as lasting 3.5 hours. Looked better on the calendar.

An interesting note is that RR and Bill Martin have joint responsibility for scheduling opponents, with BM retaining final say. Hopefully we'll stop scheduling pushover guarantee wins like Appalachian State and Toledo.
|6 years 31 weeks ago||Dude||
On second thought, I won't be a dick.
|6 years 31 weeks ago||Feagin||
The announcers were saying something about Feagin taking warmup snaps yesteday. I don't understand why you don't put him in if you want to use him this year, especially when we were down 100,000 points at the end.
