Michigan vs. Notre Dame Open Thread

UPDATE:

Meeeeechigan - 35, Notre Dame - 31


Greatest. Comeback. Ever!

There are no word, only happiness!



We have a loooong wait until kick-off.  So leave us your thoughts throughout the day on all the college football happenings.  We'll be updating both here and on Twitter, so be sure to follow us there if you're not already.

While you wait, you can always check out our scroll through our Notre Dame posts this week (and get a few laughs now, just in case we don't come out on top during the game).

And proving that we'll beat the hell out of Brian Kelly's sideline antics like the dead horse it is, we leave you with this pic of a very huge-headed Kelly berating Touchdown Jesus.

UPDATE:

It's almost here!  Just got the pic below from AHS!

Indian Summer
Nothing can steal your heart away
Quicker than Indian summer days
When the sun is warm & the shadows are cool
The lake water stands like a bright blue pool
The warm sand begs you to bare your feet
The balmy air is meadow sweet
Leaves are falling from colorful trees
And nature has moved in merely to tease..
She comes with her warm days just to betray
For winter is only a breath away --Sallie Hinds
GO BLUE!!

Who's watching Game Day??

Mikoyan said...

Well, I'm off to take pictures at the EMU game....should be fun again.

John said...

Wow, this is the quietest Game Day I have ever heard. No wonder its the "quiet house." Your first night game vs. a huge rival and this is how you show up? I think I hear some keys. And not booing Kirk??? You can't even hear desmond speak when they show up at the shoe.

TitleIX said...

John....
It's called pacing.....
Long wait till game time!

TitleIX said...

Rockets!

Paybacks a bitch aint it O-State

phil said...

With the Toledo score so far, it looks like Ohio State is beginning their own version of "The Rich Rodriguez Years."

Josey Wales said...

Although this would easily be the worst loss for OSU... ever. I would like to take this opportunity to point out the Toledo team Michigan lost to was 3-9 !

Andrew said...

Turkey Juice = vodka & 5 hour energy drink...
F - OSU
Go BLUE!

Rigby said...

Anyone watching the Penn State game on ABC? I've never heard such a poor audio balance between stadium sound and studio announcing. Very poor. Can't even hear the CBS announcers (not that they ever say much worth hearing).

TitleIX said...

@Rigby. Yep, all I got is crowd noise from ABC's Broadcast

bigGexpress said...

ESPN and ABC's sound is often terrible. I know it's exciting and the first night game in Big House History. But, man I hate waiting all day. I just as soon they played at noon every week. I know, WHAAAA!

TitleIX said...

Yes...hard to wait! No beer yet, which, honestly is tragic....
But if the ole girl starts now she will be asleep by 8

Mikoyan said...

EMU won

Yost said...

Damn, I'm having a hard time sitting still!

And hats off to you, Toledo. Oh so close!

John said...

close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. A W is a W.

i'm going to look to see if the domain www.firehappygilmore.com is available.

Bigasshammm said...

I'm bout to put a hurting on my liver. Compliments o Labatt Blue. Go blue

Bigasshammm said...

I'm bout to be real pissed if this GA game isn't moved to another station at 8

Andrew said...

no shit Big A

Andrew said...

it's on ESPN news
GO BLUE!

Bigasshammm said...

Holy sexy ND cheerleader uniforms. Wow

Rigby said...

It's still early, but this could be a looong day.

Bigasshammm said...

So ok

Hate no names on the jerseys. Idk the numbers well enough yet.

What the hells with Hagerup the punter is he suspended again?

Defens still sucks.

Beer

phil said...

There's a great "Brady Bunch" rerun show over on Channel 19. Just saying...

Seaner said...

Well, it's clear our defense isn't going to win this game. Hope Denard and Co. get going or I'm going to have to find another game to watch.

Rigby said...

This is already getting ugly.

Seaner said...

Texas getting embarrassed at home by BYU is kinda interesting...looks like a repeat of last year.

Bigasshammm said...

I hope we never wear these fucking uniforms again.

Bigasshammm said...

Jordan kovacs DESERVES to be an all American. He'll make a hell of a Michigan secondaries coach someday.

Ramona said...

GOTTA get some first downs! I'm supposed to be asleep

Rigby said...

Watch for it...Kelly's head is gonna explode soon.

edit: MY head is gonna explode if Denard doesn't get some of those throws on target.

phil said...

Don't give me a second half which makes me wax nostalgic about the Rich Rod era.

Bigasshammm said...

Yay. Now we get to suffer through the worst fucking halftime show in history. No thank you I'd rathe watch NASCAR. And I fucking hate NASCAR.

Ramona said...

I could not love Frank Beckmann any more than I already do.

LOOVED even more, his Shamrock reference towards the end of the half.

Again, I couldn't love Frank any more!!

Yost said...

Lucky to only be down 10. That was awful.

Bigasshammm said...

That punters knee was fn down. BS

Ramona said...

Why are they not protecting Denard better?

Bigasshammm said...

Because they weren't recruit to "protect". They were recruited for the shred.

phil said...

It's one thing to turn over the ball alot like ND is doing, but to turn over the ball repeatedly and still win the game? WTF???

Bigasshammm said...

Has toussaint or shaw ran the ball at all today? WTF?

Rigby said...

The reads and throws from Denard have been terrible tonight. Some easy dropped passes, yes, but poor passing. The second interception was inexcusable, especially with a man open for a touchdown.

Seaner said...

Me thinks this should be the last night game at The Big House. Daylight seems to be marginally better for Wolverine football. Marginally...

phil said...

That "we whipped them" commercial just isn't sitting right with me now.

Bigasshammm said...

Yes fuck this whole mess.



Seriously I waited all fucking day for this? NDs not even playing that good.

Bigasshammm said...

How do you not know the clock is running at the end of the 3rd? Omg get s fucking clue guys. Totally wasted an opportunity.

Rigby said...

If Michigan pulls this off...

OMG. Unthinkable that they could come back after everything that's happened. I'll say this for our boys, they don't give up. +1 for team moxie.

Mikoyan said...

Are the refs wearing shamrocks?

Rigby said...

OMG!! ANOTHER turnover in the red zone for ND. Craziness. Now let's capitalize. GO BLUE!

edit" HUGE catch for Junior!

Rigby said...

@Mik...I think so. I saw just as much pass interference on our last interception as there was in the end zone for ND. I think those dumb hats must be too tight.

Mikoyan said...

Jake Ryan? That's my boy!

Rigby said...

I think I just woke up all of the neighbors! Unbelievable!!

Mikoyan said...

Sweet!

Andrew said...

oh fucking shit..i just puked...

Rigby said...

What kind of coverage was that???

Rigby said...

TOUCHDOWN MEEEECHIGAN!!!!!

Mikoyan said...

Awesome! Bo is smiling on this one!

Ramona said...

Oh, my word!!! There are no words!!

We are back!!!!

Bigasshammm said...

Un-fucking-believable. I woke my 3 yr old up and I brought her down to show her why. Wow. Eclipses the MSU ge from a few years back in my view.

kmac1257 said...

Bless their cottonpickin maize and blue hearts!

bigGexpress said...

Has anyone ever seen anything like this in a college football game? That is that wildest game I have ending seen in any sport in my life!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yost said...

Greatest. Comeback. Ever!

There are no word, only happiness!

Rigby said...

Just saw Denard's post-game interview. It's impossible not to smile with him. Impossible.

KillaB43 said...

I seriously didn't think I could have a man crush on anyone more than I had on Mike Hart. But Denard has done it. Quite the accomplishment

Seaner said...

Holy $hit, hallelujah, where's the Tylenol? I can't believe what I just witnessed. Hope tomorrow morning when I sober up the score is still 35-31 Michigan!
