|4 hours 28 min ago||Thanks, I couldn't remember how it played out||
I remember seeing replay angles but not whether the officials did the same. Toussaint's reversed TD against OSU in 2011 would have been a good occasion to avoid replay.
|6 hours 5 min ago||Our first TD against MSU in 2006||
Terrific athletic move by Arrington and certainly his body was in bounds when he caught the ball, but thanks to Henne trying to throw this to Tacopants instead of the wide-open 6'2" guy, the first part of him to hit the ground was his torso and that landed out of bounds.
It was a second and goal from the 13 and we would have won handily with 3 or 0 points on that drive, but I remember the team rushing up to kick the PAT before they could review it. The replays did not show Arrington getting a foot down, the AOTS and shadows made it clear that he didn't.

|6 hours 18 min ago||The ball was held between his wrists as he hit the ground||
not in his hands, as his fingers are extended and not wrapped around the ball. Plus you could say that his left arm was the first part of him to hit the ground and that the arm landed out of bounds. A heroic effort on Cole's part but I don't believe it was a catch. Certainly many plays before and after that have been ruled no catch despite being more credible.
|8 hours 26 min ago||2 (maybe 3) fumble calls that went our way vs Illinois in 2000||
The one where they lost the ball was iffy. Questionable mechanism of losing the ball, the running back's helmet and then arm hit the ground before the ball came out, plus he appeared to recover it on the ground but Norman Boebert must have pulled it away from him in the pile.
Two plays later, Anthony Thomas fumbled but was ruled down, that was pretty bad. Ball out well before his knee hit the ground. Thomas scored the go-ahead TD on the next play.
Of course then Illinois had 2:30 to try for another TD but Todd Howard forced another fumble near midfield on Illinois' second play. No replay available online that I can see but it looks a bit iffy also.
Fourteen years later, Illinois fans are still cursing about this game.

Incredibly inept use of replay. Review it for a few minutes and still get it wrong. I guess if you have a cool Samoan hairdo and Brent Musburger has an orgasm while you're running toward the endzone, it's not possible to get the call right. Danielson actual makes sense during the replays.

I couldn't help but think of that when they (IIRC) awarded Notre Dame the ball after the Henne QB sneak attempt in 2005. Like they could tell what the hell happened in that pile.

Reporter: Coach, would you say that your style is more like Jesus, Sun Tzu, Pinochet, Charlemagne, or Toussaint L'Overture?
|1 day 19 hours ago||Some quality gifs in there||
I graduated in 1996 so I was well into the post-UM phase by this game. But I attended every home game except the close win against Iowa. I can't remember where I watched the game. Great win but very weird. Kinda like the game against OSU.
That horse racing gif is, well, tremendous.

Ahhh, that's better.
I like the brown facemask idea, not sure why they ever used gray, but white is okay. Everything else is rubbish.
I have an idea they didn't consider: more pumpkin pants. Always pumpkin pants please:

A difficult task but necessary when guy you idolized when you were 13 and he was 21, but you're now 37 and 45. He was very gracious.

It's a small company and a few potential participants had to cancel, but we had four excellent crock pots of chili available. I had a small bowl of each to be as fair as possible. I'm having a hard time deciding. I was worried people wouldn't eat the stuff; that was unfounded, free food is a huge magnet in any workplace.
I got a trophy for the winner, with the idea that if this becomes an annual event, it would pass to next year's winner. It's a small ceramic salsa bowl shaped like a Fresno chile:

|2 weeks 1 hour ago||A football player at my HS received one of those||
I think it was the 1990 edition. The recipient was a 5'10" 175-lb speedster that ultimately attended Bowling Green. My history teacher, then an assistant coach who has since turned a nearby school into a lower division power, showed it to me because he knew of my allegiance. It had Tripp and Vada blocking an extra point against MSU the previous season. Those dudes could sky.

in a player's face like that. The Every Three Weekly had a Lloyd Carr's Secret Playbook, which may have been Brian's creation. I have a copy on my photobucket account but can't access that from work. I came across this gem when attempting to Google it:

I've heard Lloyd speak many times. I can't think of one occasion where he spoke with exclamation points, much less in a way that indicated a double exclamation point. Even when he told the team "You just won the national championship" after the Rose Bowl it was in a deliberate, matter-of-fact tone. Maybe his quote was ghost-written.
