Countdown to THE GAME

Submitted by goblueram on November 20th, 2011 at 4:22 PM

I assume most of you are like me and cannot wait for this game, so watching the milliseconds fly by helps out.

....was opting for the clock that showed the time entirely in milliseconds. It was about a city block long at first. Glad we went with the web version. I shall definitely be counting down the milliseconds to next Saturday now, and live and in person from about 10 AM onwards at that.

Be my first time to "The Game". I am so pumped for this game. A lot of my family attends the school down south. They are already talking about how we will prolly win because they are having a down year. And if we win it won't happen again for a long time. I hate there fans/ my family around this time of the year. I think Michigan is going to have there best game of the year.

What is this "thanksgiving" you speak of. I believe the only date of note this week in Ann Arbor is Saturday, Nov. 26. Heck, they are even canceled classes Thursday and Friday so we could all mentally prepare to watch The Game.

If you want to wait around and miss the first series you can get a ticket for 20 bucks. Too many students are going to be on break to make this a tough ticket to get. Couple that with OSU's dismal season curtailing their fans enthusiasm for the game, will make tickets readily available on game day

It's a great feeling to know Michigan is going to give a great effort  and be well coached on Saturday. This team has talked about this game every day since Hoke took the job, and you can just best believe they are going to be ready.

Like Brandom Graham liked to say, "them boys better be ready". Better buckle up buckeyes, cuz you are going to get M's best shot. May the better team win.

I haven't been this excited about a game since my first game many, many moons ago.  I wonder what special surprises DB has in store for us - we've had pom-poms for ND, towels for Nebraska and what will it be?  Do you think they will have maize t-shirts for all?

Yeah, I still don't think you get what the poster is saying.  

2006 was the last time U-M won the two games immediately preceeding the OSU game.  

In other words, this is the first opportunity U-M has had to close out the regular season with three straight wins since 2006, which is something they've been unable to accomplish since 2003.

This will be the longest week ever. No more distractions, no more opponents to focus on, the only thing left is The Game.  Off to take a quick quiz then watch "The Game" on repeat until Saturday.  Go Blue!

I am getting very excited, but I feel like people in these parts are getting over-confident about the game. Ohio has looked good at times, and looked bad at times. We will get their BEST effort of the year, no doubt in that. Posey and Herron (might be banged up?) are playing their last 2 games, and they are really good players. We haven't seen a TE like Stoneburner (sp??). Their defense is very strong up front with Simon, pretty good at LB, weakest in the secondary; Denard's inconsistent passing ability can either make them look fantastic or expose them.

At the same time, Hoke clearly has the team peaking at the right time. Mattison is going to have a solid game plan that could lead to our most dominant performance of the season. Our secondary is playing well, line is getting pressure and stopping runs in the backfield. I think this game is on the offense. Borges has to call a great game, and he has the past two weeks. Denard needs to run, designed and scrambles. His scrambles can easily turn into 20+ yard gains if the backfield is empty. More important than Fitz is Hopkins who needs to get    some movement from the LBs he blocks. I just hope the players from Ohio on defense and offense play with a little extra. I think we win in one that is closer than we all would like.

17-7 Michigan

I'm so pumped to see this team play Ohio on Saturday. Through some of the biggest adversity that the program's ever encountered, they've displayed nothing but character, teamwork and perserverence. I have no doubt that Bo would love this group. I think that and an excellent gameplan to make Ohio one dimensional will be the difference.

unis look like this year.  Hopefully they show some respect for the Game and wear traditional regular away unis and not some Pro combat, bat shit crazy candy strip pieces of crap with Red helmets.

And there better not be a stripe of any kind on the shoulders of the Michigan unis either.  Those bumble-bee unis need to be destroyed, they are embarassing.

EDIT:  And by the way, Get off my Lawn!
