It's great to be a Buckeye!

Yeah, those hand motions by Mattison were very, very strange indeed!   I saw that during the game and I'm thinking "what exactly is HE CALLING FOR THERE?"  Time to send the kids outta the room.
Would love to hear the audio on the Roby smack talk.
Dear Lord its great to be a Buckeye.  Its 8:43am and Michigan still sucks.  Now, onto Basketball...

I saw the last part of the hand signal on TV live... I thought maybe he was telling his squad that it was over and to humanely end it all for themselves.  After watching this clip, I don't believe its appropriate to speculate what he was trying to tell his boys.  Did he ever coach with Sandusky?

After seeing those Greg Mattison hand signals AACC will have to keep an eye on him.
In the second gif I cant believe those idiots ran that young lady over.

O H I O is the Buckeye State

Does anybody have an image of Urban after Hyde got the last first down? that look like one fired up man where this was more than a game to him.

I keep hearing about how emotional he got after the final run by Hyde to seal the game, but failed to see it on TV or any clips.  Would love to see what he did

So that second .gif is bound to go down in history as the "Justice Hayes punch .gif" for reasons that are both obvious and perhaps unfair.
First; I think that Justice Hayes should be punished for that cheap shot.  I think he should be punished severely enough, and publicly enough, that the Conference wouldn't have any thought of weighing in.  I don't expect much of anything public from Hoke, who is becoming more and more secretive about injuries, discipline, etc., the longer he has to deal with the press.
Second; can you fine felllows please explain what is going on at that time?  It is the pre-game warmup.  Michigan is coming out of their tunnel in the southwest corner, with their bench on the opposite side of the field.  Michigan is assigned to warm up in the north half of the field.  But the stadium staff, and several OSU coaches, are pushing Michigan into running up the west sideline, the OSU sideline, so as (I presume) to avoid interrupting the OSU warmup in the middle of the south end.
Then, with Michigan trapped into entering along the west sideline, the OSU players, including captain Zach Boren, make matters worse by pushing into the onrushing Michgan team.  Boren looks like a real punk in that .gif; reminiscent of his Pickerington days.
There is an OSU female team manager who gets knocked into by an OSU player, who was bumped into by Michigan's #3 (Marvin Robinson), who was inexplicably routed into the group of OSU players by OSU assistant coaches.
After-the-fact credit goes to Luke Fickell, who saw what was his guys were doing and tried to pull some of them back.  But not until this .gif was effectively created.  There is a B1G official there as well, trying to create some space for Michigan to enter the field.  (The official almost got caught with Hayes' punch!)
Every big stadium is different, as to how teams enter the field and get to and from their lockers.  Many teams set it up so that the benches and exits are on opposite sides, forcing the teams to cross each other.  But it is peculiarly awkward at Ohio Stadium.  I presume that it is by design and intent.  If this is how Ohio State sets it up, I suppose this sort of thing is to be expected.  I hate the part of the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry that includes these little shoving matches, on both sides.  Ohio State sort of set the standard when they entered the field early for the 1973 game at Michigan (10-10 tie) and tore down the M Club banner.

Hate is hate. That's why rivalry games are such a big deal. The Auburn-Bama game was a real yawner--the Tigers played without heart or energy. That's not a real rivalry! Now, that Oregon-Oregon State game, there was pushing and jawing after every play!

Never met an M fan that wasn't butthurt about the Borens. If they'd all gone to UM like dad, Zach would be your hero, and not a "punk"

hail2victors9's picture

He's a very good player/leader etc.  I didn't follow his recruiting, but I've always heard that if Justin didn't do the deed when RichRod came to town that Zach would have been blue, too.  I think we tend to dislike our rival's best players, especially if we were #2 in the recruitment.

Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!

Yeah, but I've never seen mgoblog start crying about Fragel or Hankins, guys who got taken out their own backyard during the RichRod days. Yet, when you hear the name Boren, Wolverine tears seem to ever be accompanying.

M Man's picture

I've said my peace about Justin and Zach in the past.  To summarize; the Borens apparently freaked out about Zach's not getting a Michigan scholarship offer and that is why Justin got pulled out of Michigan.  Had nothing to do with Rodriguez other than that Rodriguez's offense didn't use a fullback.  But the Borens went out of their way to attack Rodriguez.
And Zach clearly got the last laugh with a stellar career at OSU; for him to have finished as a credible linebacker is the icing on that cake, because Michigan might have done well to offer Zach as a linebacker even if the Rodriguez spread didn't use a fullback.  I have no doubt that all the Borens would have been blue if that had happened.  And I'd expect that Michigan fans would have felt the same way about the Borens as OSU fans do now.
I never once criticized the Borens the way that others did.  I never supported the phony accusations that they weren't good players (they were) or that Justin was fat and lazy (he wasn't).  I only insisted that the Borens were screwing with people's heads when they issued that weird press release about "family values" at Michigan.
At the same time, there is a certain Pickerington-psycho element to the Boren family: the newspaper reporting quoting Justin that his dad yelled at him so fiercely at high school games that he "thought somebody might call the cops;" the school-switching for Zach; the stories of Zach's, uh, intensity in games like the one against one of the Dublin schools where he was said to have spat in the face of the opposing QB; the stories from OSU players about the Boren brothers' intensity in practices...
I was disappointed to see Zach act like a punk on tv before this year's game in Columbus because after last year's game in Ann Arbor, Zach was such an admirable standup guy, even in defeat, looking to shake the hands of Micihigan players and coaches.  As a junior, he looked all the world like a senior team captain.
So that's my story on the Borens.  As for Fragel, he was given lavish praise by Angelique Chengelis of the Detroit News when he committed to Ohio State, and I always agreed that he was a very classy recruit from a very classy high school background (Grosse Pointe South H.S.)  A recruiting triumph for Tressel.  Hankins came out of a Sparty-dominated h.s. program that was just a lot of ugliness for Michigan.  (MSU's helmet-twister Will Gholston was a Southeastern Jungaleer too, and he was virtually adopted by an MSU-alum coach/mentor.)

Just saying, you don't see a single one of us crying about cheap shots on the actual field from special teams guys and running backs that rarely if ever see the field. That's far less class than some cloudy references to something that may or may not have happened years ago, which is more a portrait of a MICHIGAN ALUM than his kids. Think about that.
Furthermore, prepare for 4 more years of an upstanding, hardworking Boren, much like the one that sacked your QB hard, seemingly in response to the hit put on Braxton Miller by your DE, Cam Newton-- er.. Frank Clark.

M Man's picture

I was just responding to the .gif-meme; I otherwise wouldn't have even seen, much less commented on, Zach's pregaming.
The personal fouls by Michigan players in the game were all rightly called.  I think the game was pretty much rightly called on both sides.  But our Dennis Norfleet did indeed get away with a facemask that should have been called on your kick return.  I'm sure glad your guy (Philly Brown?) didn't get hurt by that foul.
I have no excuse for, nor even any comment on, the case of Frank Clark apart from the fact that I hope we get more great players from Glenville.

Fair enough, may the many defeats your team receives at the hands of mine be accepted as graciously as this one, and good day to you, sir.

Gotta find a picture of Coach Hole in his three sizes too small t-shirt. Short sleeve, 'cause he's a lard.....sorry, bad ass.

bigbill992001's picture

And...........he ain't Woody.

Hovenaut's picture

That's a fat.


Coach Hole just clogging up the vernacular.....

Maybe he ups it a notch next year and decides to pick a fight with a yard marker.

<<<<<  This!  That's right, Hoke!  Keep being a total dick.  It makes it that much more fun to beat your ass!

Real fans stay for Carmen.

Good collection of gifs. I don't think I'll ever get tired of the gatorade bath and Hyde mocking Detard!

M Man's picture

Hey!  Watching the BTN replay, it just occurred to me what those bizarre Mattison hand-signals mean.  They mean, "Send Jake Ryan, Frank Clark and Courtney Avery on a safety blitz; sack Braxton Miller and cause a fumble."  Which is exactly what happened on the following play.
Thank you for your continuing interest in Michigan football and we look forward to your visit in November, 2013.

Dangerous troll post. True on that particular play though. 
Maybe should have dialed up a less self pleasurable call and a couple of Hyde run blitzes in the 4th, down points and needing a stop. 
I don't often talk shit, but when I do, I make sure I win the game. Got what you deserved, M Man. UM played a bad game and deserved to lose. We played a bad game and won. So it goes. 
I didn't down vote the post because his point is true, even if it is on the troll side for M Man.

7 yards and a cloud of dust is a beautiful thing

It seems AACCMan's true colors are coming out.  He was all cordial and nice for the past year only because we lost.  Now that we put the stink bears back in their place he gets a little chippy.  Stay classy AACC.

The last GIF just proves that Hoke won't be a "gentleman" about getting beat.  He better get used to walking off the field at years end with a loss to OSU.  GO BUCKS!

I could watch the gatorade gif all day.. Watching Boren, Stoneburner, and Sabino all around Meyer (and the look on Meyer's face) made my day. He's not blowing smoke when he talks about those seniors.
