So. That happened. If you are feeling like David after Dentist, you are not alone.

And you can't have one without the other…

Let's not blow it against Purdue!

WOW.  Just wowwww!   Basketball at the Big House!

What a crazy game. Just got home, listening to the highlights on WTKA. Poor Frank Beckmann is gonna be having some laryngitis. For that matter, so am I.


(Edit:  Inadvertently posted this as reply to BillyShears... sorry. Here's a +1 for your troubles.)

than winning a game 67-65 is losing a gaime 67-65.  It's still a +1 in the W column, so I'll take it.

Now maybe the boys can relax, have fun, and play football.  The harder they've tried the worse they've done of late.  Time for a good old-fashioned blow out over Purdue!

Unbelievable.   I just watched the OT again.   The tipped ball immaculate reception by Hemingway in OT2 provided the proof this was destiny.  

Go Blue!

The only way this could feel better is if we would have stopped Leshoure on the 4th and inches in the 2nd overtime to seal the victory. We fell apart after a goalline stand last year, it would have been nice to see it reciprocated. 


That being said, its pretty nice when my only complaint is about a better way to win the game!

Blue in Seattle

based on the commentary from this site about our secondary, ending the game on a near sack from pressure was the only way to end that game.

I watched the combo move between RVB and Roh 10 times in a well, basically, in a Roh.

just imagine the QB's thoughts going through his head,

"oh shit! oh shit! oh shit! no where to run, no where to run, did I leave the oven on at the apartment? oh crap I'm still in this play! why doesn't it just end? no where to run, just fling ball into the air, it's hopeless, I'm so sad, doom, doom, doom, doom..."

Alright, I hate to admit it, but as a senior I don't know the significance of us playing these two. I know when the band plays them and all that, but how the two songs become so connected to the marching band?


I was sharing the joys of MGoBlog with my dad and he asked why Michigan plays these songs. I felt dumb. Please enlighten me.

via MVictors:

Jerry Bilik’s "Temptation" and "War Chant" were performed first as part of two different half time shows in the mid 1950s.  As is done now, highlights of half time shows were performed at postgame shows.  Both feature the percussion section and both were immediately popular with the members of the band and the public.   War Chant was first performed with a dance–one of George Cavender’s most imaginative creations.  The clarinets were to dance like "wild" Hawaiians on hot coals.

It should be noted that "Hawaiian War Chant" was performed around 1950 by the MMB in an arrangement by Jack Lee.  Besides "Temptation" and "Hawaiian War Chant", Jerry Bilik wrote several other percussion features:  "I Got Rhythm", "Pick Up Sticks", "Log-o-rhythms", "I’ve Got Hawaiian Temptation" (a weird combination of all three), and probably others that I cannot think of at the moment. 

None ever reached the acceptance as did "Temptation" and "Hawaiian War Chant.”  The phrase used by the announcer, "You can’t have one without the other…" was coined by Dan Spaulding, the MMB announcer before H. H. Hanson.  He said the phrase on the spot for a postgame show.

Am I reading that correctly? They played the bed intruder song? I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry about the RAWK they're playing.

Seven nation army could be heard through the tv broadcast...I know the White Stripes are a Detroit product, but really? I don't think we need to hear that the week after we were curb stomped by a crappy PSU team.
