I think Brian laid out the argument that their defense is terrible not their offense.
You say ND has talent on offense, well so does Iowa. He said McNutt is a notch below Floyd and they have a quality 2nd receiver. Combine that with a running back who is better or equal to ND's and that's why he has them scoring 28 points.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||my two cents||
I personally don't mind Matt Millen as a color commentator especially when he is with Sean McDonagh who is pretty good.
I think the best team they could put together would be Sean McDonagh with Todd Blackledge (who has to suffer with Mike Patrick who is horrible). I also like Kirk Herbstreit a lot, who appears knowlegeable, non-biased, and knows what to say.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||i am in Perth, Australia||
i am in Perth, Australia right now and have been for the entire season. I have used the free streams from the liveblog (firstrowsports.tv or vipbox.tv) and these work pretty well for the most part.
Like others have said, Internet is not free in Australia so you will have to pay if you decide to watch on the computer through streaming.
If you wanted to go the bar route I haven't had any success in Perth with finding the games. Most of the bars close early around Perth (around 12 a.m.) so it doesn't make sense for me. The time difference would make it 3 a.m. in Sydney so I don't even know if the bars would be open.
So your best bet is probably to use your laptop and pay for Internet and try to stream the game (ESPN doesn't work for me).
Hope this helps.

I don't mind our head coach being compared with one of the greatest NFL coaches ever. They both have boring press conferences but they both win.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||i like the noon start time,||
i like the noon start time, especially on the road. i would rather not play a late afternoon or night game in Iowa City.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||since we are on this subject,||
since we are on this subject, what if MSU makes the B1G Championship and beats whoever makes it from the Leaders division (most likely Wisconsin). If they beat Wisconsin twice they are obviously in the Rose Bowl or BCS Bowl of some kind. If Michigan we to win out, would the BCS take an 11-1 Michigan team over a 2 loss Wisconsin team? Or would there only be one Big Ten team in the BCS?
|2 years 19 weeks ago||i guess i would be interested||
i guess i would be interested in a defensive UFR of an Alabama or LSU game just to get a comparison to U of M. I obviously know that they are much better, but it would be entertaining to see what their scores would be.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||i guess to that extent that||
i guess to that extent that we are going to question the PA call we could have instead run a different PA? like the QB OH NOES? since almost everybody thought denard would run for it, why not do that if you wanted to fake out the defense... i didnt like the call, and i thought we should have just run it, but if we were going to do a pass why not do one that will completely suck up the defense and allow denard to see the blitz coming?
|2 years 21 weeks ago||on the first interception||
on the first interception (the second picture) it actually looks like he is stepping forward and not throwing off his back foot. Am I just seeing it wrong? I think he just overshot Hemingway on that throw. The other two though... Yikes.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||Ace, Thanks for the weekly||
Thanks for the weekly round-up. Is it at all possible to get stats from the other guys that might commit to U of M in 2012 (Yuri Wright, Brion'te Dunn, Garnett, etc.)?

"It’s funny because I was watching tape of Northwestern against Michigan State from last year last week and watching their defense [to study] Northwestern’s offense."
I think he was just getting a head start on film study of MSU's defense.

well texas did lose 55-17 to oklahoma. i think it is all but assured we go ahead of texas

Gibbons and Broekhuizen straight up for LaMichael James.

any chance that guy becomes a michigan fan? i wonder if brian kelly sent him a handwritten note...
what a class act coach hoke is.

foot meet mouth.
im not sure how this really helps a team's morale, especially after that beatdown last weekend. it definitely could have been more PC.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||videos are back up. does this||
videos are back up. does this mean the copyright thing got resolved? will we have videos for the UFR this week?
|2 years 22 weeks ago||and we won without much||
and we won without much production from miggy or vmart today. not likely that burnett will hold them down tomorrow. porcello needs a solid, not great start, and we should be good. but of course i will take 7 innings and no runs from porcello too.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Agree with lots of other||
Agree with lots of other posters. I root for the Patriots against any other NFL team, mostly because of Brady, but it is the Lions by a mile.
It would be a win-win situation though. I would be happy with either outcome but would prefer most definitely a Lions victory.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||this is an apt comparison in||
this is an apt comparison in my eyes. they both won as coordinators early (Bollman helped in the 02 Championship as well as getting to the 06 Championship) and GERG won 2 Super Bowls with the Broncos and was also a decent coordinator at Texas. I think it does have some to do with having great talent around you. They didn't completely forget how to coach, but let's not mistake them for amazing coaches either.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||you can flip to the OSU||
you can flip to the OSU Nebraska game during halftime and during commercials. its not that bad.
the BTN doesn't schedule the football games anyway so they just air the game whenever it was scheduled for.

great wallpaper, and very creative. this wallpaper is now my screensaver.
the artwork is much appreciated. good work.

isn't he like 6'10" or so? I guess I am wondering why he couldn't play the 5 more often since jordan morgan seems a bit undersized for a center. is he just be a natural 4 in belein's offense (i heard he can shoot somewhat decently)

"but you don't rush for 320 yards with a bad offensive line" - Brian
but Eastern Michigan did for the first two games... hehe
|2 years 23 weeks ago||is the little brown jug the||
is the little brown jug the best college football trophy? is there anything that comes close?
|2 years 23 weeks ago||i agree with this sentiment.||
i agree with this sentiment. I would not be opposed to seeing fitz get 15 carries and smith 15 carries, and have denard work on throwing. i would rather not see denard have more than 5 carries or so unless the situation really called for it.
i also hope to see gardner get some playing time, as minnesota quite possibly could be the worst opponent we face all year (there won't be many opportunities left for gardner to play)

duke is pretty good if they get kyrie irving back for the tourney

believe they have to win again against princeton in playoff game to get to NCAA tourney though

We want OSU over PSU (as much as it pains me to write that) because OSU is not a bubble team and PSU is.
Also Crisler is sold out for this Saturday's game...

What's the deal with gibbons? Is he keeping his scholarship next year even though we have another kicker already signed?
