"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

I almost upvoted you in agreement. That would have been embarrassing.

That's probably not going to happen against an end-of-half prevent Cover 4.

It seems that Hoke wanted them to throw instead of punt. I think I agree.
Bad things can happen on a punt return. You could try to be aggressive and go for the block, but you could end up roughing the punter which would give them a 1st down with time still remaining on the clock. You could try to set up a return, but a muffed punt ends in almost guaranteed points for Penn State.
Alternatively, you force them into trying a Hail Mary. The bad thing you're worried about here is a TD. Anything underneath is pointless because there is no time left. From the spot on the field they were, and their offenses proven inability to protect the quarterback, there was very little chance of that being executed properly by PSU. However, it is one more chance for your DL.
This might be a case of Hoke's DL mindset taking over. He's basically avoiding the most risk averse decision (letting the clock run out) to give his DL one more chance to make a play.

How about we just call it the Penn State game instead of UTL? #unbrandoning

Here is alternative way to stick it to Brandon: don't ever under any circumstances refer to the Penn State game as UTL. It is the Penn State game.
UTL 1? That was the Notre Dame game, etc.

I enjoyed this one, though for whatever reason it has a few random clips thrown in from 2 years ago:

The Ticketmaster page shows (generally) where each school sits.
To save you the need for clicking through, it looks like we will have sections 1, 201, and 202. Additionally, I would expect that we will probably have pieces or all of 2, 203, and 204.
I just received my tickets in the mail for section 1 last night. Behind the basket... yuck.

Looks to me like Nik should have helped to seal off the guy GRIII was trying to stop.
More to my original point, this is a prime example of why offenses tend to get a good percentage of their long misses.

While the Craft airball gif is funny, it is also quite depressing. Only 1 Wolverine (GRIII) sort of boxes out while the other 4 watch the ball. Stauskas actually moves out of the way to avoid boxing out. #whywearenotgoodatrebounding

Note the key word in your statement "nowadays". My Michigan fandom stretches much further back than "nowadays", so anything that has started occurring "nowadays" falls into the "new" bucket.

Brian, I think you're wrong about the WR off the screen on this play... I think it's even worse, I think we ran the play with 10 guys on the field (the missing man being AJ Williams who should be next to the LG). Notice that we have 4 guys off the line already, plus Gallon is on, so I don't think there is another WR off the screen, I think Gallon should be covering the ineligible TE in their tackle over formation.
