This was originally a response to an earlier post, but I figured it would be fun to make it a post and expand a bit.

As told through Bruce Willis movie posters.

Game started out with the team looking:

Then Denard was hurt in the 3rd quarter and everyone was

Tate came in, but everything seemed a little off initially as him lining up under center felt like

Iowa then scored again to take a 21-point lead and the scene was pure

But then Tate led the team on a string of impressive scoring drives, and they refused to

Today sucked...

Came back from a party and didn't get laid (yes, I'm in college, getting laid is the norm...)

Michigan lost

4 midterms this wee

NROTC is a bitch

I have to get a new job because cleaning isn't paying enough

Aw fuck it, UM losing was the worst part of the week

Thanks for such a fun,creative post.  This was a truly great way to start the cyber-day.  We all need reasons to smile after yesterday.  I have a feeling you just gave one to a lot of mgobloggers.
