Yes, these posts are now everything I ever hoped they would be when Michigan hired Jim Harbaugh. There's no longer really room for words; I made 42 GIFs for this game. The righteous punt anger only accounts for three of them. Let's get right to it.

Cookie Monster. Harbaugh and friends disagree with the lack of a PI call. Sione Houma gets first down, has magnificent hair. Heat-seeking Desmond Morgan sack. Two-point conversion. Well-blocked toss, Smith rage. Harbaugh fist pump. Harbaugh readies for takeoff. Never do this again. Hey there, pointing guy. Smith TD one. Smith TD two. Three nose chest um what. Wormley TFL one. Wormley TFL two.
This is great team defense. Willie Henry's belly flop onto the pile may not have been entirely necessary, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
14. Another Week, Another Mountain Goating
I love that Michigan's main constraint play consistently features defensive backs getting blocked into oblivion.
13. You're No Shoelace, Because I Just Grabbed Yours
If you're wondering why Michigan is so intent on getting their three best safeties on the field at the same time, this should help answer your question.
12. STOP JUMPING, OPPONENTS
This should also help answer that question.
11. Fumble On A Platter
If Bolden snags any more fumbles like that he may find himself getting the occasional snap at H-back.
10. Truck Stick, De'Veon Smith Edition
9. Truck Stick, Skillet Hands Edition
Replay confirms: thunk.
8. Bump It
Run for your third touchdown right in front of the ROTC crew, salute. Well played, De'Veon Smith.
6. Ref Fall Down Go Boom
Way to show appreciation for that gift roughing the punter, Oregon State.
5. Harbaugh's Huddle
I think he was hype, you guys.
4. If I Curl Into A Ball Maybe It Won't Kill Me
Nice of Wormley to leave the left tackle with a perfect view of the sack he allowed.
3. Hybrid Death Machine
Jabrill Peppers with a 20-yard running start can do this:
So, yeah, maybe next time throw that ball on a line. Or anywhere else. Any thoughts, Jabrill?
No, I didn't think that pass was a good idea, either.
One foot to the left and we're all cursing the placement of ESPN's wire cam. Instead, it's perfection. Full replay angle:
It's so nice to have the hilarious special teams stuff happen to the other guys now.
