|10 weeks 1 day ago||It was not roughing though||
Should have been a five yarder, plain and simple.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Damn||
If I didn't have to work I would probally snag a couple.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||When did Penn State become Alabama?||
Because the way people are talking about that game, you would think Penn State wasn't the average team that they are. I swear some UM fans are still conditioned to expect the worst.
I wouldn't call it pulling a rabbit out of a hat when you are favored, at least according to the line.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Yes, it was a fluke||
That play had a statistical probability of less than 1% of happening, are you really going to equate those odds with an interception?
|13 weeks 12 hours ago||MSU has nobody to blame, but themselves||
If you put yourself in that position against a 3-6 team where a bad call can lose you the game, you deserve very little sympathy. Nevermind the fact that Nebraska still would of had a couple more shots at it against a MSU secondary who couldn't cover anybody.
|13 weeks 13 hours ago||The pushed/went out his own call is not reviewable||
So only the officials on the field screwed them. They definatly deserve it, though. If they weren't a fraud of a team, they never would have been in a position to lose.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Tell that to Jake Rudock||
Regarding the targeting that was picked up in the Northwestern game. You can't use the intent of the rule excuse when it is being applied so inconsistently.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Rudock's td earlier in the game was a very similar pass||
He had to fit it into a tight window between the corner and safety. Not to say Rudock's overall play this season hasn't left alot to be desired, but to say he can't make that throw when he made a very similar one earlier in the same game is kind of silly.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||This was a case of luck falling into MSU's lap||
Not them making their own luck. End of story.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||What else would they do on that play?||
Their only chance was a block. They don't get any credit for taking the only option available or for Michigan's mistakes on the play.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Does Hill even fit what Harbaugh wants to do?||
Haven't seen him play that much, but from what I gather he is more a runner than a pure thrower.
|16 weeks 17 hours ago||Pass rush wasn't as good as I thought it would be||
With the exception of that last MSU possession, Cook had too much time for most of the game. Kinda disappointing, expected the d-line to put alot of pressure on Cook consistently.
|16 weeks 17 hours ago||Thinking the same||
Why even send anybody to cover when MSU wasn't going to bother returning it? Could have a full on max protect on, and even assuming the worst still happens you have guys back who can possible recover the fumble/bring down the MSU player.
|16 weeks 18 hours ago||Why the fuck weren't they in a max protect punt?||
I just don't understand it. At the very least it would have given them a chance to have somebody around the ball when it was fumbled.
|16 weeks 18 hours ago||Feel bad for the defense||
They gave up some plays in the passing game, but came up with the last stop that they needed to.
|16 weeks 18 hours ago||Not alone||
Was thinking the same thing on that 3rd down. A roll with a run/pass option still would have been safe call.
Now to be fair, 10 seconds and punting should still be a win, no way anybody could have foreseen the borderline impossible happening
|16 weeks 21 hours ago||No idea what the replay officiating was looking at||
Total bullshit. Win or lose I hope Harbaugh calls it out after the game.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||The only thing I could think of live was the rule had changed||
That is embarrasing for the NFL, the officials have to know the rules.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Double whammy||
It should have been Detroit ball again, the Seahawk batted the ball out of the back of the endzone illegally. Back judge was looking right at it.
I noticed it live, and couldn't believe it wasn't called. I thought maybe the rule had changed, since I don't really follow the NFL.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Seems like he is reaching||
Despite OSU being 5-0, maybe he is getting nervous about how dominant UM's defense has looked. The only valid point he made about the defense is that they haven't gotten to the meat of the schedule yet, but he negates that point in a way by saying that UM won't see much better offenses the rest of the year.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Not an NFL fan||
However, I do have to feel for the Lions fans I know, that is just brutal. If UM lost a game in that manner, I would probally end up breaking something.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Agreed||
In a normal year I would say the notion would be fantasy, but I really don't know what to make of the top teams this year. It seems like the top is not as strong this year, so far.
UM would definatly have to do more in passing game though, to legimately get into the conversation.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Agreed||
I don't have any idea what issues at safety he is talking about. The secondary generally hasn't given up any plays downfield, which means the safeties are doing their job.
Calling BYU a terrible offense is also not accurate, they are average at worst. The numbers UM held them to are impressive, regardless of how anybody wants to slice it.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Sucks for me||
This was going to be the first game I was going to be able to watch live, since Utah.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||Why would it have been a miracle?||
Seemed like a toss up kind of game going in. Think that was evident considering one team shot themselves in the foot all night and the game was still close.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||This team has enough talent to expect better than mediocre||
True, it is not exactly what Harbaugh wants yet, but let's not act like he was walking into a wasteland of talentless players like he did initially at Stanford. I think that was evident in this game, consider they shot themselves in the foot all night against a good opponent on the road and still were in the game. If they had mediocre talent they would have got run out the building making that many mistakes.
Do you really think mediocre the next couple years is Harbaugh's own standard for this team?
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Punch the idiot ump for not overturning on replay too||
It was clearly going to clear the yellow line without the fan interference.
Seriously, what in the flying fuck is going on with replay reviews this year? There have been quite a few calls that should have overturned. The only thing that I can think of is that the replay ump is protecting his fellow umps, by letting some of these calls stand.
|34 weeks 14 hours ago||The Tigers are just not an intelligent team at the plate||
Game ending double play was the perfect example of that. JD should have been looking for a pitch up to at least get the tying run in, instead he stupidly swings at a pitch low in the zone on the very first pitch. He should have elimated the low pitch as something he would not swing at before even going to the plate.
There is a reason why this team is somehow is at the top in OBP( which actually could be higher if they took more walks) and BA, but in the bottom half of the AL in runs scored. They are just awful at using their heads at the plate, with regards to situational hitting. The added speed is going to waste, because they don't do the little things to scratch out runs.
Hate to say it, but barring a move or two at the deadline and V-Mart turning into last year's version, the window might have already closed.
|42 weeks 21 hours ago||Have we been watching the same game ?||
The Wings actually have more scoring chances than TB, they have played far better today than in game one.
|42 weeks 21 hours ago||Actually feel better about this series after today||
It is strange to say down 4-0, but the play has been pretty even today in terms of chances. In game one the Wings didn't look like they belonged on the ice with TB, despite the win.
