Tate to Mathews

Submitted by Md23Rewls on September 12th, 2009 at 7:37 PM

All the sports team I cheer for have spent the past decade crushing my soul, so I have always considered Henne to Manningham the greatest sports memory of my life. It has been topped. Someone get this on youtube so I can use it to cheer me up whenever I'm sad.

Both were great plays. I think Henne's is #1, and Tate's is #1a, just because today we could have still kicked a tying FG.

Nonetheless, Mathew's was a hell of a catch! I also wanna get some highlights on YouTube ASAP!

What makes this touchdown so special isn't just the specific game context (WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!), but the larger context of the program. After the slow decline and the disastrous 3-9 season, this is the sort of thing that can help define an entire era. This can help make Michigan RichRod's program.

My voice is so hoarse screaming at the Pallazzo casino Sports bar! It was awesome having a few Wolverine supporters there and a bunch of Irish being silent at the end of the game!

Seeing Forcier today, I couldn't think of a good comparison other than Roethlisberger in his rookie season for the Steelers. He actually made plays, not just "managing games" like other rookie qbs. And while Henne was great as a freshman he didn't dominate games the Forcier did at points today.

the play wasnt so spectacular, but i agree the context was huge.

if you watch a classic michigan game from the past decade that we won, almost inevitably the game is won on a spectacular reception at the end of the game. usually involving some sort of fade pattern (which is more aesthetically pleasing than a simple out route). i believe edwards and terrell both had some goodies of this kind. and of course manningham in the state game was classic.

guys, i think in the next 4 years tate will surpass this one once or twice.
