Submitted by Thorin on September 9th, 2012 at 7:04 AM

As I said on Twitter of my highlights, Danny Kanell speaks too soon, only good things happen, the band plays. Watch the whole game if you dare.

Thanks, man.  BTN2Go International was supposed to have the game available since 11:00 am my time (Bangkok).  The piece of shit service did not have the game available on time, the stream is slow, it stops, it skips, etc.  And do you know when customer service support for the "BTN international" is at work? When the international viewers are sleeping.  What a fucking joke.

Also, thanks for letting me vent, it's been a frustrating few hours.

Always nice to have HQ video instead of just streams.

So I don't have time to do full game wraps (with pics!) and I've changed my name since I don't live in seoul anymore.  Here's some bullets from the game.  Warning: I'm a bit drunk right now.

1. Will Campbell.... eeeeeeeeesh. 

2. Desmond Morgan.  He is what he is.  I.e. not athletic enough to make plays.  But if he's not getting beat out by others.... there's probably a reason. 

3. Jake Ryan, talent, like a homing missle without such a great homing mechanism.  Great upside,  the second half Airforce really went after him.  He made them pay on a couple of critical downs, but when they cracked on him.... ugh.

4. Bad scheme with the corners our option assignments were utter shit.  

5. Dammit Countess!!!!!!

6. Black and Clark look like they could improve with experience, but eeeeeeesh. 

7. Funchess! wooooooo!!!!! Needs to gain a few pounds to be a factor in the run game, but he's got the height and speed to be a receiving threat.

8. Gardner.  hrmph.  If he had been practicing as a WR for the last three years, he'd be more productive.  I'm really hating on the Ann Arbor PD right now.  Stonum is sorely missed. 

9. Gallon,  there was a reason we winced everytime he was returning punts as a frosh. He's a slot receiver, any other use of him is suboptimal

10. same goes for Roundtree.

11. Thank god for Umass

12. I reallly, realllly, reallllllllllllllllllly hope we beat state this year.  I don't think there's any way we beat ohio, short of a braxton miller injury. 

13.  8-4 looks like a ceiling unless the D-line improves.

You been drinking pussy juice or booze? Cuz you sound like a huge pussy with comments like this! For the love of Yost! Is it me or is our fanbase a whining bunch of pussies?!? I'm beginning to wish we were delusional homers rather than this negative doom and gloom all over the place. I understand Team 133 has issues, but teams with issues can win games, especially when they have a Sr. QB like Denard at the helm. Michigan doesn't have to dominate every opponent, all they have to do is just enough to win. Sheessh!

Yes it was necessary.

As to your first two questions, no, pussy juice does NOT have guava extract in it, at least not naturally.  Further, no, although it eminates from a location only a few inches away from the booty, pussy juice is completely different from booty sweat.  I can see how you'd be confused, but to the true afficianado, the difference is obvious

I am just sick of all the whining coming from our fanbase -- it's unbecoming of Michigan Men.

Yes.  Calling somone a pussy is a pointless personal attack and it is a vulgarity.

Now, telling people to stop complaining is not pointless.  However, people will react to our football team's situation how they like and they will act accordingly.  Telling people to stop seeing things the way they see it is bootless and telling them to stop posting their negative views on the internet is an abortive task.

All you are doing is complaining that people are complaining.  You're not actually helping anything.  But I guess I'm not really helping much either, so I'm done responding.

And I am complaining about you complaining about me complaining about other people complaing. :))

I was being vular for effect.  My apologies to your sensitive side.  I am just so happy that Michigan football is back.  I don't mean "back" as in contending for an NC, but back in the sense that it in season.  I don't follow other sports.  I hate the NBA, not a baseball fan, and don't really follow hockey anymore.  I watch the NFL as I love football, but Michigan football is the only team I really pay attention to.  That said, what I love most about it is that it is always different.  I love seeing the kids develop as players, and how the coaching staff works to enhance that development.  Some kids are great, some not so much.  What annoys me about our fanbase is that it seems to be full of unrealisitic expectations, coupled with overly critical types.  Honestly, I'd rather have the former coupled with complete homers.  I understand that guys want reality, they think of themselves as intellectually and "fanhood" superior to other fanbases because they're not "homers."   But, just because you're not a homer, doesn't mean that you have to be so critical, and act like a pu...I mean a wimp...and make statements like "we're never going to be Ohio..."  Even if you feel that, don't freakin' say it.  What does it possibly accomplish?

I understand us analyzing every play and player, that is fine.  It just seems to me that many Michigan fans are very hard to please, and they forget that these kids Michigan is still suffering from the effects of our lowest point in program history.

Thanks for the post. One quick question (sorry if you've answered this already): are you going to put games this season on the tracker board? Being able to download games is probably the greatest thing about the internet, so thanks for all that hard work.

find out why their play by play guy (Wischusen) kept saying that Air Force offers no athletic scholarships. There's no tuition at Air Force which is what a scholarship effectively represents. The implication that Air Force has lesser athletes because they don't offer scholarships is ignorant. They have smaller players for obvious reasons and they have a lot of smart, great athletes.

I think the first Denard touchdown was a read option that Denard should have given on.  The end was right in Denard's face and Fitz had wide open room.  But then again, once Denard realized the end was standing there for him, he just followed Fitz and took the hole himself.

Maybe why Borges shifted to just running the QB ISO (or whatever the play is where the H-back and the RB go in front of Denard).

I also like the TD to Gardner, where the play action (and not play action off of the RB since they didn't do anything, but play action off of Denard) sucked the corner right off of Gardner leaving him to stroll around until Denard could throw it.

purposely watching Demens on every play. Sorry, but the guy sucks at LB. About 90% of the time he is blocked out of the play, cut down by a lineman or back, or too late on the play and it goes for 6+ yards. I'm expecting his UFR rating to come back negative double digits.

The more concerning matter is this was Air Force.
