I was at the game spin couldn't get a good look from the replays but was Fitz in or not? Sorry if this was already addressed it just seemed like a ridiculous call and I can't find any replays...

If his knee was down before the ball crossed the plane, the ball certainly wasn't as far back as they eventually spotted it (looked like about 2 feet out). If they had spotted the ball honestly, the tip would've been touching the endzone before the snap.

Wow, how cool during the last drive...Coach Mattison went to his seniors, his leaders. RVB and Martin and told them something to the effect of "you 4 call what you want up front. We're going to play coverage behind you."


The trust you have to say "this game is yours guys, go get it." That's awesome.


It's funny because I noticed this during the game, I saw Martin run out as a rush LB to the top of the screen and he was directing traffic on the DL.


At the end of the day, we talk so much about the coaching change and our new coaches. But it's the guys on the field that are playing the game and doing the work. Hats off to our seniors!

how long that video was, but I had a smile on my face the entire time.  It was a smile from the  pride that I have for the guys on this team.  All the future teams will be a little different, but if we have 10 to 15 more years of this kind of team unity, pride, humbleness, focus and desire under Hoke, man are we are in for one hell of ride....

Ohio, beaten.....

Watching that I'm wondering who is going to stand up and lead as Martin, Ryan and Molk have.  Yet I hear some of their comments on Hoke and know new leaders will emerge.

Molk on Hoke:

"He is us, we are him. I'd do anything for him."


"He taught the team how to compete."

interesting to hear Denard say "I'm glad I stayed" (5 min mark) when asked about he and fitz rushing for 1000 yards each on the season (2nd time in M history nonetheless, pretty cool). maybe the speculation of him walking after RR left wasn't completely unfounded after all
