Note: Trying a new style with these gifs posts—aside from the first image, you will need to click on the stills to open the animated gifs in a "lightbox" (like the videos in UFRs). This should alleviate most of the bandwith issues.

Within mere seconds of Pat Fitzgerald's reaction to getting the fourth-quarter late hit call on Trevor Siemian, my Twitter timeline flooded with requests for a gif. I was still working, however, and in the meantime the indispensable Tim Burke (@bubbaprog) captured the moment. If you're looking for the straightforward gif, click there. If you'd like to know the real reason why Fitzgerald was so damn excited, look no further:

[COME ON DOWN below THE JUMP for the rest of this week's gifs.]

Devin Gardner showed once again that he's a pretty decent athlete, too, scoring Michigan's first touchdown after laying out for the pylon (remember, click the image for the full gif):

This sparked another Denard/Devin dap gif:

Northwestern was able to score just before the half, and Pat Fitzgerald's celebration sensei was revealed:

In the second half, Devin Funchess did Devin Funchess things:

And then, of course, all HAM broke loose. Here's the broadcast angle of Roy Roundtree's catch:

Replay #1:

Replay #2:

Kenny Demens ended it with a crushing hit on 4th and 2. Broadcast view:

And replays from all angles, including Coyote-vision:

Brady Hoke was pleased:

Will Hagerup, Gif Legend, perhaps even moreso:

Other than the above, though, that sure was a boring November football game.

I've been cut out of Replay #2 but in the full TV view, my dad and I come into view just before the ball lands in Roundtree's hands. 

Love the Price is Right gif.  I'm going to have the theme song stuck in my head now.

Anybody else having this issue? They all work fine for me, but clearly I'm having a difficult time finding something that works for everyone—probably because that's impossible, but it's worth a shot.

EDIT: And it would be nice to get some details about what browser you're using and if your computer is usually slow loading gifs. Because, hate to break it to you, sometimes you're just SOL if you have a slow connection. These kind of posts can't accommodate everyone, unfortunately.
