Let The Good Times Roll

Submitted by jamiemac on September 11th, 2011 at 3:11 AM

So what did everybody do tonight? I know what I am not doing. I am not sleeping, that's what. It's too tough to sleep when you cant stop laughing.

Other than, you know, winning did Michigan do anything well tonight? To quote Bob Ufer, 'who gives a damn'

The Michigan-Notre Dame rivalry. Where 14-0 leads go to die. And where Underdogs happen.

Hey, Elno. I quoted Raised On Robbery in my MGoDiary. I think that was appropriate in retrospect. CAW


Apparently, it still works like a charm. Even the Les Miles section was dusted off.

Ferentz, I guess,  is already in trouble without it

Actually, wait a sec, do those points MICH scored in the fourth quarter really count. I mean, they were down 17, I thought we learned a year ago that at that point whatever happens isnt relevant to form. So, Notre Dame won, right? HALOL

The Cubs were World Series Champs last time MICH beat Notre Dame three years in a row. I was not alive then. Fuck The Irish

Denard Robinson is Spanish for 30 seconds is too much time  to leave on the clock

Somebody tweet something about Jeremy Gallon right quick

Vincent Smith. Its funny how internet posters hate him, but coaches love him.

OT: The Tigers Magic Number is in single digits

I really dont have anything smart to say. This all just an excuse to create a party diary. The stadium was beautiful tonight. The players fought their asses off. Somehow they won. Go Blue.

As stupid as this diary probably is it may be my favorite one in Mgoblog history. I don't know where all to post my feelings seeing how there's literally pages of threads up but 6 hours later here we go: wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! That is all

Most important stat of the game: Michigan won the second quarter 7-3.  At the end of the third I was pretty pissed at you, thinking, "sure they won the second quarter but they're losing all the rest."  Now I recognize the genius!

Let the good times roll!

did Michigan do anything well tonight?

They were pretty good at not giving up when so many had given up on them. Also, recovering unforced fumbles, throwing and catching jump balls, getting WIDE open on the wheel route when it mattered, kicking PATs (!), not dropping kicks and having more points on the scoreboard at the end of the game than the other team. Also, while Floyd got his yards, they did a good job of not giving up the home run. They defense bent until ND broke.

I remember your 'Let The Good Times Roll" post after the ND game last year. Like you, I remember the 1987-1990 ND games well and hate the Irish more than Ohio State or any other team. Thanks for posting this. Looking forward to another one next year. 

Another thing they did well that I forgot to mention is pass blocking. Not bad for a bunch of kids who were recruited for run blocking. Also, Wile has made me almost forget about the Hagerup suspension.

But his 38 yard average yesterday isn't as good as Hagerup will do.  Just saying.  His kickoffs have been solid, and will get better as he gets more practice and experience.  I'm not sure why his last two kickoffs (other than the squib one with a a second left) landed at the 20 yard line.  He got away with one because the ND guy let it bounce over his head.  But, the 2nd one gave up a bunch of field position which helped ND score more quickly to take the lead back.

That was the most unbelievable game in Michigan history!  There...I said it.  Spool up the last two plays for every Michigan highlight reel for years to come.

That game was one for the ages!

Go Blue!

Michiagn football owes me big time on this game. I watched the first quarter of the game and shut
It off after Denard threw his lazy interception. The score was 14-0 at that point, so I shut off the
Big screen tv and went up to bed an watched four episodes of entourage and went to sleep at 11::00
Pm cst. I then wake up and grab my iPad and go directly to espn to see how bad they got beat.
I'm thinking something like 38-10. The first thing I see at espn.com is the picture of Robinson jumping
Up in the arms of Taylor lewan. I think why would they put this picture up if they lost?So I clean
Out the sleep in my eyes and read the caption that says they pulled out the victory on a last second
td pass by number 16.

So for the last three years I have not seen these games live on tv. I watch them they stink up th joint
I shut it off and they win. So Brady hoke owes me big time for not watching the game. It's been to
Nerve racking to watch, and I don't want to throw something at the tv or curse any louder so my young
Girls don't ask why daddy is cursing.

Thanks jamie. I had an incredibly long, incredibly inchoherent response in this space which I left there while letting Let the Good Times Roll play out and fortuitiously fell asleep in that time.

Short short version: AIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not the biggest fan of Pat Forde, but he's the only one who has brought up this Hoke quote so far: "Even if that play had gone incomplete, Hoke said he might have done the same thing on the final one. 'I may have gone for the touchdown and gone for the win,' he said. 'Why not? I mean, you play to win.'"

Hoke really encapsulates Michigan football. Has the Schembechler legacy coaching ethos along with just enough of that gambler streak that fellow Schembechlarian (coining that as the name for all those who come from the tree of Bo) Les Miles takes too far. Love it.

That Denard Robinson deserves the Heisman? His performance last night, as nearly every victory (and most of the losses) over the past two years shows, was the difference. How can he not be college football's Most Valuable Player?


September 11th, 2011 at 10:59 AM ^

Because I woke up this morning wondering if it was all a dream...although I guess my aching legs, bruised arms and lost voice could have been a clue. That was the best birthday in my entire life.


September 11th, 2011 at 2:22 PM ^

was the loudest, most amazing atmosphere I have ever experienced at a live game in 24 years of attendance. I will never forget how fun and raucus we were, and anyone suggesting the staduim was quiet is mistaken. Maybe TV blocked out some noise with fancy gagetry, but it was insane. GO BLUE!!! I will never forget that, and I am thankful I was alive to witness it.

...also results in a Jamiemac diary of what appears to be a drunken rant of every thought I had post-game, but better. Or, as Fred Jackson would put it: "This diary is like reading an intoxicated Shakespeare, but more elegantly phrased."
