|6 days 23 hours ago||This was explained in the broadcast . . .||
so apparently you had already started drinking and just didn't know it! The ball hit a Michigan player before rolling a few more yards.
|1 week 3 min ago||Seeking preclearance from the Moms||
Proposed thread: Was the ball carried more or less than a yard past the 16 yard line? I thought a fresh new perspective would be nice.
|1 week 1 hour ago||Based on what I've seen . . .||
pretty sure 20/20 vision is not a prerequisite -- and it might be disqualifying.
|1 week 1 hour ago||If Harbaugh kept it to freeze the kicker . . .||
then why didn't he use it for that? There was a timeout before the kick, but OSU called it, and Michigan ended regulation with one timeout in its pocket.
|1 week 1 hour ago||It was 3rd and goal . . .||
and OSU had about 15 yards to go. So no possibility of a first down short of a TD, and they were in an obvious passing situation. No reason not to call the timeout -- wouldn't have given OSU any additional opportunities.
|1 week 5 days ago||Brilliant!||
So you're saying Speight only needs to play long enough to complete 8 passes, then we can sit him down to avoid further injury and O'Korn can take it from there? All those analytics and it comes down to this: Speight for 8!
|1 week 5 days ago||The best thing about Opponent Watch . . .||
Yes, it's well written. Yes, it's clever. Yes, it's often hilarious. But the best thing about Opponent Watch is that it's posted on Saturday morning right before the game.
It is Saturday morning, right? RIGHT??!?!?!!??
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Harbaugh is unfair!||
Surprised Brian didn't mention this one, since he searches out these folks on Twitter -- the ones who complain that Harbaugh being Harbaugh is unfair by (i) running up the score, (ii) using trick plays after Michigan is in control of the game, (iii) continuing to deploy Peppers on offense, (iv) going for it on 4th down, etc.

Not worth a separate thread, but former M goalie Al Montoya had a nightmare of a game tonight: 10-0 Blue Jackets over Montreal, and Montoya was left in for all 10. Thanks coach!

Can't he just toss it up and run under it?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Piling on . . .||
Just to push the refs even more into the negative, look at the second play of the first drive after halftime (a WR sweep). Brian says that Lewis "badly overruns the play," but that might be because the lead blocker (#65) grabs the front and back of his jersey and hurls him to the ground as the runner goes by - right in front of a ref, of course. Lewis probably overran the play even without the hold, but I'm pretty sure that doesn't negate the penalty.

or Seth's 77k points would be long gone. Fields? Just . . . no.

Very nicely Purdone.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||"Need to play a lot better to||
"Need to play a lot better to beat OSU" -- I guess that's not a negative statement about Michigan, or a positive about OSU?
|5 weeks 13 min ago||Fair enough . . .||
But then OSU is playing the undefeated number two team in the country, a team that has done better than OSU in every game against a common opponent so far this year. Which Michigan team are you talking about?
|5 weeks 39 min ago||Not true||
See below, under NCAA Rule 6, ball is dead as soon as it hits the ground in the endzone and it belongs to Michigan. That's why you'll see kick returners not even bother to pick up or cover the ball when it reaches the endzone and they have no intention of returning it.
|5 weeks 42 min ago||Recovery in endzone||
Under NCAA Rule 6, article 7.a, the kicking team can't recover the ball in the endzone unless the receiving team touches it first. So, as long as Michigan didn't touch the kick, the ball is dead as soon as it touches the ground in the endzone, and it's Michigan's ball.
|5 weeks 1 hour ago||So it would seem||
But apparently you think we're playing a different OSU team at the end of the season?
|5 weeks 1 hour ago||Which OSU are you talking about?||
The one that edged Wisconsin in overtime, the one that lost to Penn State, or the one that struggled at home against Northwestern?
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Why do so many people on here . . .||
have a difficult time understanding that Dantonio is a bitter little man?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Can't tell from this camera angle . . .||
but there was another guy (not sure who) who was equally BLINDINGLY wide open at the other side of the end zone. Would have been a tougher throw, of course, but Michigan sure confused the heck out of the Illini D with that play.
