If history holds, the losing team will score with less than 3 minutes left, only to see the winners drive the length of the field to break their hearts. Hopefully TB gets the ball last.

Balls were re-inflated at halftime. Stripped of his unfair competitive advantage...Brady immediately began playing lights out:
Brady, 1st half: 11/21, 95 yds, 1TD, 1 INT, 4.52 yds/attempt
Brady, 2nd half: 12/14, 131 yds, 2 TD, 0 INT, 9.3 yds/attempt
Brady opened the 2nd half with 9 straight completions and led the Pats to TDs on 4 consecutive drives.
Also, fumble prevention...bah. Would deflated balls have kept the Colts from tackling Blount, who averaged 4.9 ypc and ran for 148 yds and 3 TDs??
THERE WAS NO COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE.
Given how the 2nd half played out, the Colts should have petitioned the refs to allow the Patriots to re-deflate the balls...

and still can't believe I am saying things like "of course, that was 30 years ago..."
|2 days 20 hours ago||Given that BBSBs are decided late||
you would do just as well flipping a coin
|2 days 20 hours ago||OK||
I apologize if I offended you, that was not my intent.
|3 days 1 hour ago||So, so simple, given that balls were re-inflated for 2nd half||
-Brady, 1st half: 11/21, 95 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT, 4.52 yds/attempt
-Brady, 2nd half: 12/14, 131 yds, 2 TD, 0 INT, 9.4 yds/attempt
-Patriots 2nd half drives: TD, TD, TD, TD, punt, punt
-Luck: 12/33, 126 yds, 0 TD, 2 INT, 3.8 yds/attempt
-Maybe an underinflated ball would have been easier for L Blount to hold onto...but it wouldn't have stopped the Colts from tackling him. He averaged 4.9/carry
|1 week 4 days ago||Yes. Painful to endure as fans||
However any lingering sense of entitlement, any illusion of immunity to a downturn, any idea that our tradition is so strong that things will just kind of take care of themselves, should by now be appropriately shattered. Things never take care of themselves, they have to be done the right way all the time. The right coaches, the right players, the right AD, a united athletic department, up-to-date facilities, well-conceived processes efficiently executed...

Does anyone have video of the pep talk he gave the basketball team prior to the 1989 NCAA regional final vs Virginia? (Wolverine Historian, I am looking at you)
I remember seeing it on TV right before the game but I've never been able to find it on YouTube. Made me feel like I could have suited up and scored 25 - all 6'1" and 156 lbs of my slow, unskilled, non-athletic self.
Michigan went on to score 102 and win by 37.
|1 week 4 days ago||Reminds me of what someone once said r.e. Fred Biletnikoff||
"Not real big, but awful slow"
Except for Devin it would be "doesn't block, but drops a lot of balls"
Of course Biletnikoff did wind up in the Hall...

but they are still evil
|1 week 6 days ago||Harbaughcalypse...||
|1 week 6 days ago||Good for them||
They got a title in just under the wire before the beginning of the Harbaugh era.
It's going to be a long time before they have a shot at another one.
|1 week 6 days ago||SCIENCE says it could be as you say||
After all, add 6 and 9 and you get...15!
The stars could be aligning. Need to make a few more calculations before we know for sure...
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Unreal?||
Who raised you?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Hart was great too||
but Wheatley is the most exciting back I've ever seen at Michigan (started watching in mid-80's). Guy was a threat to score on every carry.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Hey buddy||
Just ignore all negative comments; there are a few in every crowd.
Nothing can wreck this great day in the life of your family!
Just one more thing, and this is important:
Make sure to get video of the first time your baby tastes ice cream. Priceless!
|2 weeks 2 days ago||You are great parents||
and I feel better about the future of our nation!
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Nobody!||
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Congratulations!||
It's good to know that there are still people in this world who are raising their children to believe the right things.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Geez, lighten up||
I saw this after the c/o 2033 was added, still initially thought "new recruit," and I am not bothered by a fellow Michigan grad bragging on his new son.
Apparently with 100+ pos-bangs, most other people aren't either.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Sorry, double post||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||And I'll tell you what||
It is not at all inconceivable that we could beat OSU in 2015.
Harbaugh's 1st-year W over a fully loaded, #1 USC squad, with Stanford having been a 41 point dog in that game, gives confidence that anything - ANYTHING - is possible.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||The return of The One||
officially brings The Dark Times to a close.
May he and his Armies of Righteous Anger cut a swath of Vengeance and Holy Destruction through the B10 and quickly restore balance to the universe.
|4 weeks 1 hour ago||Shouldn't be a problem,||
apart from the normal difficulties anyone has facing top offenses. Saban had no trouble with Urban's FL teams once AL was fully rebuilt.
The Bama model consists of 1) dominant DL, 2) good overall team speed on D, and 3) an offense that chews up clock while grinding opposing defenses into paste.
We should be good to go on all counts.
|4 weeks 2 hours ago||The One has returned...||
Let all Evil, green or scarlet, know...and fear
|4 weeks 2 hours ago||Quietly?||
Don't think so
|6 weeks 13 hours ago||"We'll never survive!"||
"Nonsense. You're only saying that because no one ever has."
|6 weeks 3 days ago||All the way back to the 70's!||
Not many QB's get multiple W's vs OSU.
Now that would be an interesting list...which UM QB's have multiple wins vs OSU? Which ones played the best vs OSU??
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Don't forget '97 vs Iowa||
Michigan was down 21-7 at the half after giving up a punt return TD as time expired.
In the 2nd half Griese threw for 2TD's and ran for another, preserving Michigan's only perfect season of the modern era.
