UM Highlights vs. UMass

I think I broke my own record for getting a highlight reel out - I'm pretty sure it was less than an hour from final gun to availability on YouTube.

Sorry, only SD available right now. Hopefully, I'll be able to pull down an HD version and do a remix with audio from the Michigan Sports Network.


Michigan 30, UConn 10

My highlight video is up on YouTube.  90 minutes after the game ended.  I think it's a new track record.

That Would Have Killed An Ordinary Man

| No Comments

I take full responsibility for Michigan's loss to Toledo last Saturday. In all my 35+ years as a fan, that was the first game I'd seen at Michigan Stadium. Clearly, I am a jinx.

I did get one picture that seems to summarize things this year - good effort, lots of promise, but blown up and ultimately futile. It's Sam McGuffie's catch on Michigan's last drive, where he gets pasted by the safety.

Sam McGuffie can catch... and take a hit


I was going to offer the DVD I wasted recording yesterday's game to the first Oregon fan who offered me a buck for postage. However, apparently I went all "HULK SMASH!" when I pulled the disc out of the recorder, because the next thing I remembered, I was holding a pile of polycarbonate shards and bleeding from both hands.

(sigh) Back to the basement, I guess. I better straighten up a bit; it looks like I'll be spending a lot of time there this season.


I'd like to thank Comcast and the Big Ten Network for their pissing contest, which meant that I didn't have to watch you-know-what last Saturday. I knew Michigan's defense wouldn't be championship-caliber; I just didn't think it would be exposed so soon.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be in the basement sulking. Perhaps until Carr retires.


It Ain't Deja Vu When There's Video Evidence


I've already said everything that needs to be said about the Rose Bowl, and I'm not talking about the previous post.

Change the names and a few of the numbers from my post after the 2004 Rose Bowl and you've covered just about everything. For instance:

OK, now I'm a believer. USC is all that, and a six-pack, and a bag of chips. You know when your team tanks in a big game, and you think, "Well, they just didn't play like they could?" Generally, there's a reason for that, and it involves the other team. USC owned both sides of the line of scrimmage like nobody I've seen against Michigan since the '02 Citrus Bowl.
Of course, that last part should now read "the '04 Rose Bowl," but you get the idea. I was also pretty hard on then-freshman Leon Hall
. . . the one time poor little Leon Hall tried press coverage against Mike Williams, Williams dumped him on his ass.
because he eventually developed into an excellent corner. Too bad that A) he can only cover one guy at a time, B) nobody else in the secondary can cover anybody, and C) Leon's going to be playing on Sundays next year. If they don't land Ronald Johnson, teams rushing for less than 40 yards and passing for more than 300 may become a regular occurrence.


In Case You Were Wondering...

No. There are no highlights when Michigan loses.

Michigan 20, USC 17.

Happy New Year.


The Longest Week Of My Life...

...ends in four minutes. It will be the longest four minutes of my life.

But I don't think Michigan will win. aOSU, 24-21.

Just One More Thing To Amp You Up For Tomorrow

Here's The Charles Woodson Show, also known as "Michigan v. Ohio State, 1997." Woodson had a punt return for a TD, an end-zone interception that killed an aOSU drive, and a long reception that helped set up an Anthony Thomas 1-yard TD plunge. Andre Weathers added a pick-six to complete the Michigan scoring, and Glen Steele had at least two sacks and two other tackles for loss. You'll also see Marcus Ray dumping David Boston (the famous SI cover shot). Enjoy.
