My favorite moment of this game was when one of the announcers talked about the rain in the Forrest Gump voice. If that was McElroy, he wins my September Heisman.
Loved watching the very end! It is so satisfying to see the Michigan player's smug satisfaction after the long pass to Manningham at the end, especial because I know what comes next! They thought they had it won.
Their tears are still delicious even after all these years.
He alone can build a wall around elite talent and make every other program pay the price!
I am so tired of MOOBS. Gross, pale, flabby old moobs.
Several weeks back in a Hurry Up (12/1) after Walker had decommitted, Birm wrote this:
Over the summer, the critically acclaimed short story "Decommitment Season: You Chose Too Early" came and went, claiming a number of awards such as "Most Likely to Wear Another Teams' Shirt to Your School" and "Maybe You're Not as Good as We Thought."
Lets start a kickstarter campaign in support of that fake punt attempt! I'm sure the entire state of Ohio would gladly contribute $5 a piece to support another one of those beauties!
How can anyone honestly boast of the mighty SEC when this florida team won the SEC East?!?
I was simply asking a question to determine if I was reading his comments correctly. Hence the question mark at the end of the sentence and the further clarifying question, "am I reading that right?"
Would I have said it differently, probably so, but that wasn't why I was asking.
So he is sorry for the disruption he's caused and the timing & setting of announcing he's leaving, but he is NOT sorry for criticizing the coaches/play calling or saying that MSU wasn't the better team? Am I reading that right?
Whenever a losing player immediately declares that the winning team isn't the better team (especially when that winning team lost the turnover battle and gift wrapped the opponent 14 points), it is beyond poor form. It reveals a mindset that I feel has plagued this team the entire season: they simply think they are better than they've played. They regularly seemed to dismiss their unwarranted struggles against inferior opponents, swatting away legitimate criticisms with an air of complacency--"Don't worry; we're fine."
It isn't the passion that concerns me. It is the underlying arrogance that can lampoon the coaches, dismiss the evident superiority of the winning team, and declare he isn't returning to school immediately in the aftermath of a humiliating loss.
When he does, he likes to spread the microphones out wide, empty the chairs behind him, and then run a QB draw up the middle.
They essentially moved Zeke to freaking Fullback for the most important game of the year! Idiots!
That was the worst offensive game I've ever seen. Seriously, has anyone, ANYONE, been surprised by the 3rd down, empty backfield, qb draw?
Since when did Zeke become our fullback?
Not a good look all the way around.
Sadly, the team seems unified...against the offensive coaches.
Nope, you're not overreacting: changes need to be made. This offensive staff that is calling plays has lacked coherence, cohesion, and competency. This isn't a one game problem. Remember: we barely beat a directional Illinois school!
(Edit: Not meaning to be snarky to you, I'm just frustrated. I re-read my post, and saw it could have been read as against you, but that's not how I meant it.)
For post game presser, here is what Beck chose to do: split everyone out wide, and then run JT up the middle
This offensive staff is broken...period. This entire year we haven't out schemed anyone, just out "athleted" them (inventing words in my frustration). What an atrocious game plan.
After Cardale took the sack that resulted in a fumble, Urban looked really frustrated. I thought I saw him saying, in a visibly irritated way, "Throw the ball. Throw the ball."
