Worst half time show ever. Made me long for the days of "salute to barry manilow" & the like

Bigasshammm said...

Worst goal line offense ever. Why cant we punch it in from 2 yards?

Bigasshammm said...

BOOM let's go.

Bigasshammm said...

May are the recipients of the easiest schedule ever. I hate that they'll play for the big championship. I hate worse that they may play PSU. The big is seriously lawned this year.

Bigasshammm said...

That should be MSU. Stupid predictive text.

2nd team mopping up with 6 min to go? Students chanting "Beat Ohio"? The difference a year makes.

Brady gets it

I'm glad I made it home in time to watch the game.

9-2, meaningful November games, opportunistic, rugged defense; welcome back Michigan Football!

Thanks Hoke for reminding almost everyone (gotta work on that Sparty thing)that "This is Michigan for God's sake!"

What a glorious day in Ann Arbor! Not sure if there is a better place to tailgate than the AAA lot on Main Street, all due respect given to the Blue and Victors Lot pass holders--even GoBlueBob over at Pioneer HS. If it weren't for the flyover, we wouldn't have realized it was time to cross the street and into the stadium it was so festive.

Unfortunately, the student section, at best, was not quite full from my view in Section 16.

Dare I dream of a 10 win regular season????


Ramona said...

OMG. Did they chant "Beat Ohio"? I have not heard that since the end of a season, early 70s and we had just beaten Illinois at home. Next game would be against OSU there, with us unbeaten and them unbeaten. I was attending with my dad and as the team was heading to the tunnel at the end of the game, it seemed the entire stadium was chanting,unrehearsed, "BEAT..OHIO...BEAT..OHIO...BEAT OHIO!" It still gives me chills thinking about it now.

yeah, it started when we went up 45-17. it began in earnest over the last 5 minutes, and echoed on for a good ten minutes after the game was over

Yost said...


Seriously, I'm just going to say that for the next 24 hours.

Rigby said...

I hope I can find a replay of the game. I had to follow it from text updates d ue to work. Boo. Sounds good though!

I've been looking on ebay and stubhub to potentially buy tickets for the Ohio game. One of the selling points for a pair of tickets on ebay was, "You rarely have to stand." HAHA! Pitiful!

Ramona said...

Crock, thanks a million times over for that link. I will never forget that morning....anyone listening to WTKA probably heard close to Bo's last words.

Driving my son to school, 4th grade and already wanted to hear sports radio instead of Christmas music... we listened to the interview and I felt alarmed, when the WTKA guy asked Bo how he would be able to watch the game next day. Bo sounded weak yet resolute. I went cold from head to foot because it sounded like he knew his time was near, like he was saying goodbye,and taking care to do so in a reassuring way..... 'I'll be OK." said Bo. In the next minute the school bell rang and the air was full of swirling fall leaves and elementary school children running into the building. The sounds of life. After Matthew was inside and I was driving away, the news of Bo's heart attack was already on the air.
