10/28/2012 - 12:11am Lack of Audibles et al

I think even with denard in this would have been a tough game, but winnable especially with the defense playing like they have. 

This is a combination of issues, but the lack of audibles is getting to the point the of unbelievability. 

 

Not sure if it's borges playcalling, a lack of comprehension or ability on the part of Denard, or just a side effect of the super-super slow offensive style that leaves almost no time on the clock to audible if they wanted to.

But when I know it will be a run play, and when Nebraska's defense knows it is a run play and tells you so, and you still don't even consider changing the play even though they are stuffing you every time - there is something wrong. 

After watching Bellomy today, I think even if we win out this year (will depend on Denard coming back and playing well), I have no real hope for a stong season next year. We lose Lewan and our only passing/and or running threat, to be replaced with a talented but untested true freshman. 

 

 

09/15/2012 - 8:04am If your overseas and want the

If your overseas and want the best feed possible, then BTN2GO International is your best bet, 14.95 agame, 19.95 a month or 119.95 a year. Its worth the year package if you live outside of the country and watch both football and basketball, plus you can now stream ESPN games a week after they've aired. 

I haven't used it this year but the feed last year was better than ESPN Player. 

For other games ESPN Player will be your only official option. Biggest problem with the services (other than the cost) is the lack of commercial/half time. Would much rather have commercials than have the screen go to the espn logo for a few minutes. 

 

 

11/13/2010 - 3:48pm straight off the

bigtenticket.com feed, probably could have gotten one more of the punch landing, but I'm just pressing the play and stop buttons on the console.

11/13/2010 - 3:34pm Yeah and

Mouton sat for a game for after that. If Mouton sat, then  #3 should sit. 

lets go to the zapruder. 


This is where the whistle blows. Note the position of #3. 

 

Now. lets see what happens next. He ends up on top of denard.

The arm goes up.

There's no way that's not a punch  after the whistle. 

11/13/2010 - 2:02pm I could see that except

that play was long dead before he threw his hands in. Even if he was going for the ball, he threw a punch on dead ball - I don't think his intentions really have anything to do with it. 

11/13/2010 - 12:42pm So how about we make the

So how about we make the punch video a nice slow motion animated gif, and throw it up at the top of Mgoblog. Danny Hope can bitch about it later all he wants. 

11/13/2010 - 12:18pm Looks Like this.

11/13/2010 - 11:54am I live overseas and I've

I live overseas and I've watched numerous games  on the internet via bigtenticket. Last year i had numerous problems and the quality was very poor, but the one game on BTN this year was about a 100 times better in terms of quality than last years and was comparable to espn's feed, although ESPN's seems to less delay. 

It's a small sample size, and as with anything your mileage may vary, but I've found the quality of the BTN feed to be far far better than the free streams. Whether its worth the money is the real question. 

 

11/07/2010 - 10:13am When wolves cry...

This the shot you were thinking of? I think everyone was pretty understandably emotional. What a huge win. 

10/28/2010 - 9:48am also

we dropped at least three kick returns in this game. Even in 1997 they couldn't hold on to the damn ball. 

10/28/2010 - 6:43am Man,

I think it would be easy to UFR this game. Half of the running plays are "run up the middle, gets tripped up in the wash".

 

Is it just me, or does the Game just look so much less complex in 1997 than it does now?

 

10/05/2010 - 10:45am Come now...

come now, I was only speculating....

10/05/2010 - 7:43am Does anyone want to

Does anyone want to speculate?

Yes, lets. 

 

see what i did there?

but snagging either of those two would be a victory, and even if it was HaHa i would be well pleased. 

10/03/2010 - 11:43pm This.

The fact that Indiana

This.

The fact that Indiana had the the best passing offense combined with our terrible pass defense was the most important match up in terms of score during saturday's game, and I'm sure thats why so many people got burned on the spread.

The problem is that our defense this year, and this scheme for that matter, hasn't been tested by a strong running team or an offense as balanced as this one. Even with the game at Ann Arbor and the spread at +5, if there was a year where I would bet that Sparty could take this one home - its definately this year.

Really have to hope our defense steps up, our offense continues to play big and get blocks at the second level, and Sparty No!'s a few times this weekend. 

10/02/2010 - 11:21pm Yeah because nothing said

Yeah because nothing said 100% mantastic like the e cups on John Madden. The fact that their fat (big john), ugly as sin (lou holtz), or a talentless homer (Tom Hammond) hasn't stopped networks from putting male talent on the air, not sure why it should be different for females. 

Only difference is there wont be 10 threads about how ugly looking tom hammond is or how old and stupid lou holtz is. Glad to see sexism is alive and well in Ann Arbor. 

 

I'm a get negbombed for this, but its one thing to criticize pam ward for being a bad announcer, and another for criticizing her for being unattractive.
 
10/02/2010 - 10:06pm Yeah, well...

As much as I like Lewan, he better hope there is video that exonerates him, cause if there isn't i wouldn't be surprised if they sat him against MSU (even if only for a half). 

09/28/2010 - 11:59am Its cool yo.

Cause I figured out how Darryl Stonum can top this weeks style performance. Fast forward to 30 seconds in and behold:

Electric blue sequined neck tie/shirt combo > nerd glasses

Right, so not 12 gauge, Kilo Ali. I'm on it.

09/28/2010 - 11:41am Seriously though

Ya'll are some serious homers. This is hot trash and you all know it.  just cause there is a rap song about your team does not mean its a good rap song. 

Not to mention this rap never even mentions dilithium or the space time continuum, I mean how am supposed to take this effort seriously if they wont even go through the motions? 

09/27/2010 - 11:41am I thought for sure it started with this video....

 

 

but then Brian may not have grown up in North Florida/Atlanta like I did....

10/16/2009 - 11:01pm isnt epinion actually GBMW

isnt epinion actually GBMW too? and also pad levels. anything involving pad levels.

i think WLA and MGoblog should team up for t-shirts saying No Sugar Coat, or Excellent Pad Level, maybe you can throw Coach BT 5% of the proceeds as royalties.

10/06/2009 - 10:12am naw, aint that far south,

naw, aint that far south, just a bit too far east to get ABC.

So does abc sports live feed their stuff? failing that, im a assume that it being on a major network wil mean i have more options than just justin.tv.

10/05/2009 - 11:33pm So will the game be streamed

So will the game be streamed on 360? cause theres no local ABC affiliate where i live.

10/04/2009 - 11:45pm So will the game be on ESPN

So will the game be on ESPN 360 for those of us overseas? I know some of you hate night games, but im pretty stoked i wont have to stay up until 4am to watch the game this weekend.

10/04/2009 - 12:29am That walk-on was pretty

That walk-on was pretty spectacular on that last drive yo.

I think there are bad calls made sometimes on the defensive side, like only rushing three on some of state's early third and longs, but then our secondary is terrible. I think we may have a lot of guys who are capable of playing hybrid positions, but arent good enough to run with the thoroughbreds.

I worry that Warren is gone next year, with no one on-deck to replace him. Its also pretty telling when one of the best defensive plays in the secondary was made by Craig Roh.

10/03/2009 - 3:28pm nah,

your D is playing excellent, your Qb is clutch. you go go for the tie and force overtime and hope you can pull it off.

if we had lost by one because of a failed conversion, everyone would have been excoriating RR for his bad decision. As is, we pulled an overtime loss out of what should have been a blowout.

10/03/2009 - 11:09am btn network

Nah, the only things they stream for 2.99 are Volleyball games etc.

Football for overseas people(bigtenticket.com) is 24.95 a game, or 69.95 for a season pass, which is an incredible rip off when you consider that there are only two michigan football games carried (Today's game and the EMU game) and when ESPN 360 is like 6 dollars a game. Might be of more interest for fans of teams who arent regularly on ESPN though.
