While UMass, IFast
Go Blue!

Andy said...

Rough start. UMass takes the opening drive inside the 20 and kicks a FG. Denard throws a pick into double coverage on the second play.

Andy said...

Touchdown Michael Shaw. 7-3 Wolves.

Andy said...

End of 1st quarter. Michigan leads 7-3. UMass getting first downs and driving. This may be a long day.

Andy said...

UMass touchdown. Uggggggggg

Andy said...

Denard sacked for the first time all season.

Andy said...

Missed FG. UMass still leads 10-7. Boo birds out. Visions of Appy State big and bold right now.

I am going to stop posting comments, because clearly it is having a negative effect on the team.

Andy said...

Wow. That was F*Ugly. The UFR for the defense is going to be interesting.

Michigan wins 42-37.

When you have not been to a bowl game in 2 years, style points don't matter.

Bigasshammm said...

Doesn't bode well for the rest of the season.

i dunno. D was just awful in 1st half. 2nd? seemed like w/ big lead, they were playing very conservatively w/ a team that was willing to run 8 minute drives, down 3 scores.

if (yeah, i know, "if") they don't drop the INT, or the punt snap, this isn't much of a story after half time.

next couple weeks will be telling.

BTW- quote of the day- Lundquist is talking about the 30 arrests of UF players during Meyer's 6 years (which is actually worse that Sweaterboy's- go figure), and Danielson says "i know that's a lot, but i refuse to call that a 'dirty' program".

really??? what would you call it, Gary?

Andy said...

I know everyone is mad.

Unacceptable is losing a game like this.
Disappointing is having it be so close.

Learn from it and move forward.

Yost said...

SiC,

LOL. That's a good one.

Andy, blogging or not blogging -- wasn't you, it was the "D"...and I use that term loosely. VERY loosely.

TitleIX said...

Ok! Back to reality! New Sparty unis? Ick.

Mikoyan said...

Ugly game but hopefully I got good pics.

ChicagoWolverine said...

Ugly, it was a victory non the less - healing pictures the defense has earned.

Andy said...

T9

You are so right. Sparty looks like an arena football team with those uniforms.

This game is painful to watch.

TitleIX said...

Worse and Worser. Brian Kelly has picked up his prickishness right where he left off.

And we better find some D or Sparty is gonna hurt us bad....

Andy said...

Sparty does not look that great on D either. Crist just picked them apart like they were wearing winged helmets.

The over/under for the Michigan/MSU game is going to be something like 120.

Andy said...

Notre Dame takes the lead in the 4th quarter. 28-21.

Sparty looks tired.

GoBlueBob said...

Too many damn close games tonight. I am dead tired from being up at 4:30am today for the tailgate but I cannot go to bed with Sparty just tying it up again.

Andy said...

Brian Kelly is an idiot. Went for it on 4th down on his side of the field with 6 minutes left.

Mikoyan said...

Wow....I gotta hand it to Sparty...

Andy said...

Sparty with the fake FG to win it in OT. Wow.

surrounded in columbus said...

So? Is Arizona really good? Or Iowa over rated?

Andy said...

Two quarterbacks from my son's high school are on ESPN channels right now: Wake's Tanner Price and Arizona's Nick Foles. Pretty cool.

whetstonebuck said...

Bear Down, Arizona.

Zona doesn't have a big enough lead to hold on through the second half.

wv = refiber.

What I will have to do if AZ loses this game.

Mikoyan said...

And my pics from the game:

srudoff said...

crist's performance makes me wonder what would have happened had he played the entire game against you guys.

whetstonebuck said...

Arizona beats Iowa. Four sacks in a row on Stanzi. Wow!

Way too many penalties.

Steve said...

This is my belief. To start every season you have to have a tune up game, a challenge game and a scare game. We've had all three and won. Let's Roll!
