Hmmmm, one of the most impressive plays of the decade, especially when setting a bench mark for the difference in the speed of the two teams, was the jet sweep by Paris Campbell last season, when he simple went into another dimension, leaving Michigan defenders sucked into his vortex .... It could have been a game of touch on that play and he still would have scored ..... that was Ted Ginn Jr. acceleration and pull-away speed - something that TTUN has never had .....

Did it really matter what seed we were slotted at ??  We were one of the top 3 teams in the country and should have been able to beat both LSU and Clemson for the right to say we're number 1 ... It really didn't matter who we played first.  We were better than Clemson, but dropped TD's, calls overturned by replay officials and conservative play calling in the red zone (1st half) were the difference in our game against the Flying Deputy Dawg's ...

I remember a team that just scraped into the playoffs at number 4, kicked the crap out of the number 1 seed and then hammered the number 2 seed in the finals to become champs - sound familiar ??

Karma is a bitch, Huckleberry Hound !!  LSU gets away with a hand out of bounds that eventually leads to an LSU TD (where was the f**king replay booth - having another cocktail ??) hahahahahahaha !!!  Then the Clemson LB gets tossed for targeting, hahahahahahaha !!!  Clemson receiver's catch is overturned by the replay booth, hahahahahaha !!!

I wonder if they'll have the balls to suggest that they got rooked by the officiating ???

Karma is a bitch and so is Dabo Sweeney - MFing Deputy Dawg .....

It seems like our first bunch of games, the team played like they had nothing to prove and nothing to lose, so they were shooting the lights out of the basketball and winning ....

As they started to listen to all the talk about whether they should be ranked number one, they made a huge mistake - they listened and from that point on, the shot-makers stopped making the shots, they started to squeeze the bat too hard and just couldn't find the range any longer.  Even when they took a short lead today, while Indiana went cold, it was like they were just waiting for the ceiling to fall and started making bad shot choices and of course, turn overs ....

This team was so much better when everyone chipped in and they played like they didn't have any pressure on them .... they'll be back and they'll peak at the right time - too much talent and good coaching not to have it turn around.... Have a little faith ....

The only reason I'd show up to ESPN's College Game Day, is to jump up on the table and take a dump in front of Desmond Howard and ask him if the object in front of him is familiar - it should be, since it's what a true Michigan Man looks like ......

I'm not sure I'd be anywhere near the NC game as the OSU head coach, but good for Ryan Day - ice water in his veins and a steely resolve to recruit like a madman .....

Comment 09 Jan 2020

While the replay booth did us no favors and cost us a legitimate 6 points, I firmly believe that one of the biggest issues that went against us was our defense's inability to contain a running QB (shades of last season's open field tackle misses).  Truth be told, the field was the same for both and both teams took advantage (JK Dobbins first TD run had their safety sliding on his ass and conversely, Proctor slide in an effort to stop the Clemson QB long touchdown run ....

We had dropped balls (both our offense and defense) and so did Clemson.  However, it was our inability to turn field goals into touchdowns that ultimately killed us ..... it happens and unfortunately, this was the worst possible stage for it to happen on.  I believe that LSU will absolute pulverize Clemson and expose their defensive coordinator (Day made him look like a fool on two 4th down conversions - one that led to a TD pass to Olave).

Comment 06 Jan 2020

Hmmm, those replay officials are finding all kinds of ways to screw both Buckeyes in Bowl games and now NFL playoff games .... Can you say, PUSH OFF ??  I knew you could .....  Obvious push off by TE Rudolph on the Saints corner for the game winner in OT - even the announcers said it was offensive interference.  How can so many obvious calls be missed by people with all the video evidence they need to make the correct call ??  Boggles the mind ......

I have no issues with Kirk, as I think he's a decent football analyst - not as good as Urban, but probably the most knowledgeable of the entire ESPN College Game Day group ..... I believe he loves OSU and is doing his best to be unbiased .....  I appreciated that he was adamant about the strip and score play counting ....

Comment 05 Jan 2020

I was getting pretty tired of hearing how much of a defensive genius Venables is - Day made him look like a fool on a number of plays (my favorite was the 4th and 1 and Fields went from a shotgun snap, to under center, stood up, ducked down and took the snap, while the entire Clemson defense was looking over at the Clemson bench for the signal (it's called watching film and seeing tendencies) .... If we don't drop three key passes, we win the game by 3 TD's (excluding the defensive strip and score that was wrongfully overturned) ....

OSU should have put 45 + points on that defense, if not for a few bad breaks, but that's why you play the game.  Venables is just another Brown from TTUN, when it comes to defensive schemes - good, but not unbeatable .....

One thing is clear - during the Clemson game, the on-field official, who was standing a few yards from the catch, had a perfect view of the catch, the strip and the fumble and consequently threw the bean bag indicating the fumble, saw the play at full speed and felt the catch had been made and it was, indeed, a fumble.  As far as I'm concerned, he did his job perfectly and made the correct call.  The person(s) sitting in the replay booth, despite having the same views that everyone had from the TV monitors and the ability to count the 4 individual steps the receiver took, with both hands firmly around the football, before being stripped, completely ignored the video "facts" and chose to over-rule the call on the field. 

Apparently, Stevie Wonder was working the replay booth that night .....  Full blame and hopefully, full punishment, should be directed solely at the booth for the ridiculous ruling, not the on-field officials (they got it right) ....

I remember watching Brent Johnson, who was a starting DE for OSU .... came from the Windsor region (must of hated the smell of Detroit wafting northward and couldn't wait to get south of that stench !!  

Couple of notable Canadian running backs - the current CFB leader - Chuba Hubbard (Saskatchewan) and the heart-breaker for TTUN - Tim Biakabutuka (played his football near Montreal) .....

Let's be honest, Michigan was just being Michigan - the defense simply quit once they figured the game was out of reach .... typical ....

Comment 02 Jan 2020

Sorry, fellas .... I hate TTUN and always smile when they play their last two games of the season under Hairball, because everyone knows that they will finish with two losses ..... But, for Saban to pull a bush-league move and refuse to take a knee with 26 seconds left, all I see is Saban lowering his standards to that of a "Michigan Man".  

If you want to send a message, drop 50+ points on TTUN, like OSU does, showing them that they were NEVER in the game and don't deserve to be on the same field.  Instead, TTUN was LEADING at the half and Saban had to rally his troops for the win .... He tried to make it look like a big 19 point win, instead of just 12 points against a team that should have been blown off the field.  So, he resorted to running a play with 26 seconds left - pure Pop Warner.  As I said in a previous post, OSU knows how to win with class, while Saban is still classless ....

I still hate TTUN, but Saban is a dick .....

Comment 02 Jan 2020

I watched a coverage guy (can't recall which game yesterday) run full bore, leading with the crown of his helmet, into the punt returner's helmet, without any call being made or reviewed.  It was straight up, the very definition of targeting, but because the returner popped right up after the collision, it wasn't considered for review.  The hit could have been used on a demonstration tape for officials, illustrating the very essence of what should be called "targeting" .... It was a vicious hit, much less of an impact than Wade's hit, but not even a sniff of a call ....

If this rule can't be enforced with any kind of consistency, then either scrap it, or move to college flag football .... it's now bordering on the ridiculous ....

Comment 01 Jan 2020

I despise TTUN and especially the ultimate HC poser, Hairball .... Beat them like rented mules, but pounding in a TD with 26 seconds left, is a pure dick move and I'll support anyone who calls Saban an ass clown for doing it ...... That's the difference between Hillbilly culture and Buckeye culture - win with class (physically dominate them, play tough, hard-nosed football, but know when to take a knee) ....

Mind you, if those "Michigan Men" defenders, would have put even half an effort into tackling Harris on the last drive, it would have been a 12 point loss, instead of a 19 point loss .... Typical Michigan attitude - when the going gets tough, don't bear down, just quit ....

Glad TTUN lost, glad Shea's last offensive play in college was an interception, glad that Hairball has reaffirmed his incompetence as a HC, but still think that Saban is a pure dick wad .....

Comment 01 Jan 2020

Hairball is an idiot (at some point, TSUN officials will figure it out), but Saban is a straight-up dick (even the announcer questioned why Saban wouldn't have taken a knee winning by 12, with 26 seconds left on the clock) ..... I think Harbaugh is the most media-hyped, overrated HC in college football, who is stealing millions from TSUN, but even his players don't deserve to have such a classless act at the end of what was a close game for 3 quarters....

On the other hand, I watched his defense just quit on the final series and let Harris run through arm tackles .... this is the measure of a "Michigan Man" - when the going gets tough, just quit and walk off the field with tail between legs .....
