He looked pretty wobbly after the hit, but there was no mention of that on the broadcast.

...and Michigan immediately made it a one score game. I love tequila, and a I make a mean margarita, but tonight it's straight, and unfortunately, not very good tequila.
Defense held, and now we have a chance to take the lead. I know that, on every level, I should not be excited about Michigan winning against Rutgers, but, this is the hand we're dealt. I know that Hoke is gone unless Michigan at least 6-1 from hereon out, which is close to impossible.
I also know that, at 37, I have a finite number of Michigan seasons left to cheer for. As such, I will cheer for Michigan to win every game they play, regardless of whether or not a win may hinder the team's long term chances of long term success by postponing the inevitable.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Our best defense...||
...is penalties, dropped balls and errant passes. And the defense is light years better than the offense. The set of quarterbacks that play against Michigan over the course of a season would win the Heisman Trophy in at least 4 of the last 7 years.
Alter ego: When did I become so emo? Michigan will find a way to eek out a win, and pull out another close call against Penn State, before being annihilated by Staee.
(Even my alter-ego/evidence denying self knows that Michigan will be annihilated in two weeks. both know that this is a meaningless game. At best, a 7 win Michigan hemorrhages a few less recruits than a 4 win Michigan before the inevitable coaching change)
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Defense||
The defense on this team looked good in spurts. Loosing Peppers, even as a freshman, hurts a lot. Countess simply cannot play press coverage.
Unfortuantely, I don't know if we'll ever have a coach at Michigan that refuses to play prevent towards the end of either half with a lead of 1 point or more.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||That fake punt play by Rutgers||
was not a horrible playcall. The pass was horrid. It took about 3-4 seconds to reach the target. There was room down that sideline if the pass got there quickly. I don't think Rutgers needed to make that call up 12-10 in the first half, but they work best when you don't expect them. It was essentially a free TO, though. If Nova coughs up at least one more, we may just sneak away with a road win.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Two Touchdowns in one game||
...Including a Michigan(TM)/Manball 3 inch score. This is right where Hoke wanted the program in year four.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Not disappointed with that drive...||
...at least in terms of playcall and Devin's play. Pass to Chesson was ill-advised, but he made some plays, and got the ball out to Williams on the 3rd & 6.

or "How Devin got his Groove Back"
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I will now dutifully predict a TD on every drive this game...||
...just felt like they were ready to break loose. I think that, from here-on out, we see the Devin we expected for the next game and 3 quarters. As long as Hoke doesn't pull the reigns back in, this team may even play well enough to be competitive against Staee. The team has talent, but Hoke needs to just let Nuss run the offense on his own.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Beautiful catch by Butt||
Still love that we recruited a tight end named Butt. Nothing further to add.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||The Madden Offense||
Just pass the ball to Funchess on every down for the entire game. In video games, this works well for anywhere from 1-5 games until your star receiver is injured for the rest of the year.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||TD on this drive||
I honestly don't remember the last time Michigan scored a touchdown, so I really shouldn't be betting on them to score, but I think they will. It may be the 7% Dark Helmut talking though.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Great drive||
3rd down play playcall (and execution) were lacking. Given that we've seen some small changes, at least in terms of getting to the line with more than 7 seconds left on the clock, I am still cautiously optimistic.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||About to takle a Beau's Oktoberfest Mix Pack||
Just cracking open a bottle of "Dark Helmut Imperious Schwarzbier". Like Michigan's offence, I have no idea what to expect today, but I have to admit to feeling cautious optimism in both regards. There is no reason for Hoke to play it safe anymore.
Thanks for the Big Ten Network stream. I had the Super Sports Pack for a while, but was often disappointed to find out they weren't airing the Michigan game anyway, so I can't justify spending an extra $40 a month on the only package that includes the Big Ten Network up here in Toronto.
|11 weeks 21 hours ago||Perhaps he was fishing for an injury timeout...||
...To buy enough time to allow Bellomy to find his helmet. That's the only semi-logical explanation I can come up with. Of course, a regular timeout is the call, rather than letting the play roll with Shane.

You can search for sports by team name and should be able to find a stream for the game that way.

Junior Hemingway with a TD for KC. Waiting for Denard to have a play called for him.

Local Toronto Brew. 8.2% ABV, but suprisingly mild. Not doing anything to calm my nerves in anticipation for tomorrow's game. I have to remember to stock up on some Oberon next time I'm in Ann Arbor, so I can at least pretend I'm there.

I would love to see charges vs blocking fouls stats on a home vs road basis. And I'd like to see how those numbers compare in the B1G vs other leagues.

*I want to put down a snarky 42-37, but even with all our question marks on the defensive line, there is no way the Minutemen are putting up 37 this year. They put up 3 first downs, 59 total yards of offence, and 3 yards rushing in their season opening 37-0 loss to UConn. They had six different guys with at least one carry, and averaged 0.1 yards a carry:
C. Burns 11 carries, 17 yards

Heh...I googled Honky Tonk Hail to the Victors, because I wanted to hear what that sounds like, and the #1 hit is this thread.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||I've bought tickets through||
I've bought tickets through this sale for several seasons in a row now -- we make one annual trip to Ann Arbor to watch a game. Normally, we end up with the whatever the lowest doman game of the season is - UMass, San Diego State, etc. Most of the time, we've ended up with tickets in the end zone, in the top 2-3 rows of the stadium. Normally, I'm buying six at a time, so perhaps you can get better seats if you look for two instead. Having said that, even the very top row in the end zone is fine. There literally isn't a bad seat in the house, as far as I'm concerned.
