Well, it brought us luck twice this year.  So I'm going with it again for our Open Thread post!

Behold the Michigan Marching Band and...

Go Blue!

I hope GERG keeps Roh at end and doesn't move him to linebacker if Mouton is out. Obi and JB can handle it. But expect to see Roh drop back into pass coverage on 3rd downs instead of Obi or JB.

Watching the BTN pregame show.

They just did a segment on Purdue's DE Ryan Kerrigan, in which they compared him to Superman. I just hope Taylor Lewan ate his kryptonite this morning.

StClairShoresBLUE said...

+1 for the D. Way to go guys!

hmbfossil said...

"The players tried to take the field, the marching band refused to yield..."

I think I may have found an answer for the Defense!

StClairShoresBLUE said...

i know its Purdue but the D look way better getting off blocks

TitleIX said...

Safety blitz? Who are these guys?

StClairShoresBLUE said...

shankapodamous!!!!

StClairShoresBLUE said...

that reminded me of that Nebraska bowl game.

StClairShoresBLUE said...

Michael Shaw is doubtful to return. Fits Toussaint get your helmet on!

Catie said...

HAIL!


Off topic, however I am in need of tickets to the Big Chill, thought I would put the word out here. Any extra tickets that you would like to sell, email me nursecatie at gmail. Thanks!

Tate for QB. I'm just saying.



I'm handicapped posting today since my phone is being used to broadcast the M radio guys since the BT coverage is epically terrible.

Bigasshammm said...

Change the Phucking QB!



This post brought to you by Pabst Blue Ribbon.

WV: Repeater

As in : Denard Robinsons keeps turning the phucking ball over.
He's a "repeater."

StClairShoresBLUE said...

Denard cant throw on the run he forces it every time unless the guy is wide open

Bigasshammm said...

I said it last year if Tate plays every snap last year we win 1 maybe 2 more games.
Had Tate played every snap this year we're 7-2 right now.

I guarantee it. He's been raised since birth to be a QB. Robinson is just gifted with talent. But he's NOT a QB.

StClairShoresBLUE said...

So put Denard in as a slot back? and Tate as QB......... hmmm

Bigasshammm said...

"Worst QB ever."

Yost said...

This is D-1 football, right?

Bigasshammm said...

My case in point.

Why is it whenever Denard is QB you never see him talk to the O-line or the receivers or direct the players on each play?
Tate is a fundamentally better QB and should have been the QB all year. He is a leader not just a round peg in a round hole.

StClairShoresBLUE said...

ok make a decision play one or the other. wait for it, wait for it, play them both! hahahahah

Bigasshammm said...

Stclair if DickRod wasn't such an egotistical ass they would have played them both a long time ago.

Any other coach with this team has Tate as QB and Denard as TB/Slot/Wr/punt returner/kick returner/do everything.

ANd this team is 7-2 or 8-1 with that lineup.

TitleIX said...

Some one talk me off the ledge please.....

Bigasshammm said...

This is why he should be fired. Michigan football is not a fucking embarrassment as it has been the last 3 years.

Bigasshammm said...

T9 jump into someone's waiting arms.

StClairShoresBLUE said...

i love the D today the are keeping our ass in the game. and i have to agree Tate gives us a beater chance to win.

Bigasshammm said...

I love it, now we've resorted to 2009 Wolverines. Denard comes in and we RUN RUN RUN RUN. How fn predictable.


I get more and more pissed off every game. I am firmly on the "fire him" sidelines. I don't care who they bring in anything is better. One more year of this isn't going to prove anything.

Bigasshammm said...

The rhythm is complete Phucked on this team now. Guaranteed Denard come in next series.
What a joke this team has become. I say we boycott the bowl game and don't go to it.

StClairShoresBLUE said...

The field is way too sloppy to try to scramble. if you are going to throw and dont have a play throw it away dont try to do anything stupid

Bigasshammm said...

Hats off to the defense though. Solid tackles. Making plays. Blitzing.

They've played their ass off while the offense has shit itself.

StClairShoresBLUE said...

why in the F%$#@ cant we get one game where everything comes together at the same time. today our offense implodes and our D steps up? and special teams i gave up on along time ago but damn

Bigasshammm said...

Beer 7 since kickoff. I never drink like this unless M is playing.

Bigasshammm said...

I think you have to blame the coaching for turning the ball over 50+ Fn times over the last 3 years.

It's fundamental football to teach ball security.

Derp.

StClairShoresBLUE said...

we need misdirection plays nobody can cut right now. get em going one way and and go the other to set up good plays

Bigasshammm said...

Can't believe we're going to win this game.

But I have a Christmas Ale and a Rome Y Julieta Reserva Real waiting when they do.
Here's to the last 65 degree day of the year I'm sure.

Bigasshammm said...

MUST have a TD here

Bigasshammm said...

Light it up!



I'm somewhat saddened that RR retains his job.

Bigasshammm said...

No TDs allowed by the defense today.

Gameball to them.

StClairShoresBLUE said...

very nice ham! i must say that i thought we would win by 14. turnovers killed us, and the whole bowl thing is a bit much. i dont like the things we do a lot of the time but i will go, to support the kid no matter who is the coach or where the program is going. not saying you dont support the kids but..... i like the drink selection

U G L Y we aint got no alibi ..... We' s ugly

New avatar pic soon.

Celebrate Bitches!

StClairShoresBLUE said...

open thread works A G A I N !!!!!!

Bigasshammm said...

I mean I'd leave it up to the kids. At 7-5 we're going bowling no matter what. But, like ND last year, if at 6-6 I'd totally support the team voting not to attend the bowl game.



To the back porch and the sun and cigar and beer!

StClairShoresBLUE said...

I am just sooooo happy for the Seniors with all the S%^t they have been through this BUD (light) is for YOU...... and me

StClairShoresBLUE said...

but mostly me

Yost said...

Well, I think we all know why this victory came to pass: the Open Thread Video!

Needless to say, it's going up again next week, although after Wisco hung 83 on IU today, it might not help.

surrounded in columbus said...

cudda been worse? 7 wins is 7 wins.

on a different thought- is it me? or was Chris Martin (BTN color analyst) shameless in his "love" of Ryan Kerrigan & all things Purdue?

StClairShoresBLUE said...

Curtis Martin beats HOPEs huge drum!!!!!!!!

StClairShoresBLUE said...

the love fest made me turn on Beckmann and Branstatter even with the delay.

Andy said...

News update: Curtis Martin is in the bathroom washing up after his long hot post-game session with Ryan Kerrigan.
