|1 week 1 hour ago||TD NC State!||
The talking heads were all talking about how great the Clemson/Louisville game was. The game I watched was an exhibition on how to fumble and turnover the ball. There was a stretch of 5 turnovers in 3 minutes of clock time, including turnovers on 3 straight plays. In total, there were 4 interceptions and 5 fumbles lost.

Michiga, down 4, at the Wisconsin 16 yard line, with 8 seconds to go. They run a Peppers sweep, but it's a fake. Butt appears to be wide open in the end zone, but a Badgers DB jumps the route and is streaking down the sideline for what looks to be a sure pick six.
Summoning all of his will, Peppers lunges for the ball at the Michigan one yard line, knocking it our of the hand of the unnamed Badger DB, attempting his best his best DeShean Jackson.
Grant Perry scoops up the, time on the clock long since reaching zero, and heads back up the sideline. He makes it to the Michigan 45 before running out of real estate. In desperation, Perry hurls the ball backwards, right onto the hands of Peppers, who has somehow rejoined the play.
Peppers reverses the field and runs it in for the winning score, 29-27.

|1 year 7 weeks ago||Fantastic recap||
This summary is fantastic. It perfectly encapsulates my feeling after the game. It was a game that went almost exactly like Vegas thought it would. You can see that Harbaugh is steering the ship in the right direction, but it will take a while.
Despite averaging less than three yards per carry, the team moved the ball well enough to be competitive. The defensive gave up a couple longer drives, but also made some great plays. Ruddock is not the long term answer for the Wolverines, but he played well enough today that the WOlverines will win more games than they lose. Grant Perry will improve his route running. Jake Butt played at the level we all hoped Funchess could've played at last season. Chesson got open more in this game than I remember anyone all of last season. Peppers is a gamer, and did everything he could to give the team a chance to come back in the second half.
At this point, we don't know who the quarterback will be when Michigan has finally put everything back together, but there are a lot of positives to take from this first game of the Harbaugh era. I only hope that the ship can be righted and the team put together for a season to remember while Peppers is still wearing the Maize and Blue.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Michigan/Utah in Canada?||
As far as I can tell, there is no legal way to view the Michigan/Utah game in Canada. If there was any hope that they would show it at a bar somewhere here in Toronto, I'd go out to watch the game, but the only games listed, including the Rogers Super Sports Package, are:
Florida International @ Central Florida
TCU @ Minnesota
Oklahoma State @ Central MIchigan
Duke @ Tulane
I hope Fox Sports One never broadcasts another University of Michigan game again!

He did have one 60 yardish punt return that he took to the house, but is was called back by a completely unnecessary block in the back five yards behind the play.

On a side note, when I occasionally visit Ann Arbor for gameday, where's the best place to pick up any of the top rated brews from Bells? I haven't had any luck finding Hopslam, Kalamazoo Stout, Expedition Stout or any of the bourbon barrel aged brews-mind you, I normally only make it back to Michigan 1 or 2 days a year. Brought back some two hearted and founders last year.

He looked pretty wobbly after the hit, but there was no mention of that on the broadcast.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||I broke out the tequila...||
...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.
|2 years 2 weeks 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)
|2 years 2 weeks 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.
|2 years 2 weeks 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.
|2 years 2 weeks 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.
|2 years 2 weeks 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.
