Especially when a couple of those were proooobably pretty legit.

BUT!

That's how it goes. I'll take it! Michigan's got hosed by the refs enough in the past year that it's nice it wasn't us this time.

Yeah, I was mostly talking about all the late hits and cheap shots. I'm an Ohio U fan and watched their entire game last week and saw the same dirty shit in that contest as well.

I posted two interviews of both quarterbacks before the season and pointed out that O'Korn had a lot of confidence, and that I wouldn't be surprised if he started. People made fun of me for making this decision based on an interview, but now I think we have a new way to scout who the starters should be...

O'Kornucopians: a sect of M fans who believe that - in a world in which John O'Korn is M's starting QB - their lives will be overflowing with fruit and vegetables, and, most importantly, victories.

O'Kornutopians: a sect of M fans who believe that - in a world in which John O'Korn is M's starting QB - their lives (and, most importantly, M's offense) will be truly ideal.

UnO'Kornians: a sect of M fans who believe that John O'Korn is a mythical, flying horse-like being with a single, sparkly horn growing from the middle of his forehead and a rainbow-like mane & tail. As such, they believe him to have magical abilities including the ability to render poison water potable and the ability to heal sickness.

Note that there is a rather large overlap between those who self-identify as O'Kornucopians and those who self-identify as O'Kornutopians. Those who despise fruits and vegetables (particularly winter squash) typically self-identify as O'Kornutopians only.

UnO'Kornians, however, are a singular and - not surprisingly - rather fringe group.

From inept to fully functional offense with the change of a single player.

O'Korn felt pressure, avoided a lot of pressure, found open receivers in spite of pressure, delivered the ball to said receivers, and damn--he was on target. 

What a relief.  I think we found another Kaepernick. 

I hope we found another Kaepernick . . . .

He avoided some pressure. He made some nice throws. He also had to manage the offense against a bad defense and his passes were usually on one read. Maybe that's how this offense should have been with Wilton. That said I'm not sure that a one read pass offense is going to work long term. Glad the bye week is here.

I think everyone here is overlooking the only QB who was truly perfect on the day: Brandon Peters.

1/1, zero turnovers, 100% completion rate, every single throw he made converted a first down. The only thing that could stop him in this game was the clock.
