A-Train....Doh!

Go Blue!!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.

Fitting we're the poster child, Michigan has taken it on nose against spread teams more than most.

I was honestly expecting to read about app state AGAIN, but this was kinda refreshing to see the NW game instead of the mountaineers!!! Oh well, what r ya gonna do??

Still can't believe we lost a game in which we scored 51 regulation points. And people fretted over the 45 we gave up to Illinois as though it was an anomaly.  If I remember correctly Drew Brees dropped quite a few points on us that year as well.

Now its coming back to me. Up 28-10 and we went into a shell offensively. Content to try to eat clock, punt and play defense despite having Henson, Walker, Terrell, and A-Train

Pretty sure the halftime score of the NW game was also 28-10.   If the owner of the car who's OSU flag I snapped off that night is reading this.... I am not sorry.

I was actually at this game.  I can vouch for the prevent offense we played in the second half.

This game was the worst I have ever seen us play defensively and considering we had RR for 3 years that says a lot.

actually, i think it was 28-10 sometime in the 2nd quarter of the N'western game that year, then Nwestern rallied to make it 28-20 or maybe even 28-24 at the half??? i was on the way home from work and remember Bo being interviewed at halftime, and was amazed he was not swearing his head off about the horrible defense!!!

My thoughts
1) in the 3 recruiting classes, leading up to that disaster, I was sounding the warning bell, at the freep site, that dline recruiting was so-so at best....result? Only one lineman that year weighted over 260 pounds...we got pushed around all year
2) Ugh...A-Trains fumble
3) How bad would that defenses stats be without the time consuming, high powered offense opposite it?
4) Michigan taking the foot off the offensive exelorator in both the purdue & nw games with the lead

I will say, as horrible as that game was to watch from a defensive standpoint, I am very optimisitc from an offensive standpoint for this current team after watching that game.  If Morris can live up to the hype and give us another Drew Henson-like talent and our coaching staff can bring in some stud receivers, I shudder to think what our offense will look like in a few years! 

 

GO BLUE!!!

Yeah, I was at that game too. I had a deja-vue moment when M went ahead 28-10 - this will be just like the Purdue game when we led 28-10 and eased off the peddle. Knowing that just one more first down sealed the game - A-train gets the ball and looks up at a gaping hole, but wait - a pancaked NU lineman reaches up and knocks the ball out. OH, THE HUMANITY! Had tickets on the 40 when all you had to do was show up in Evanston to get between the 20s. This is still the ONLY M loss that I ever saved on tape. All the other Ls ended up being burned to remove the bad karma. NU is a small-time program - but they can burn you if you don't pay attention to what's going on.

What I remember the most from that game is how our defense looked a step slow

I vividly remember that painful game. NW was not a bad team in 2000 and that was one of those games. I felt bad for ATrain. That was a tough game to lose but we lost to a better NW team than osu did in 2004, small consolation that is.
