Second half? Refs will start throwing flags on every play
Last comment nerds
One of the most important discoveries of all time has to be AC Power correct?
Go damn that break was so long
Lock this thread cowards
Once you see that the OSU logo with the words in front of it looks like Porky Pig "That's All Folks" ending, you can't unsee it
This game is shaving years off my life. Gotta say though I'm a big fan of the refs letting them play through everything even though it's hurt as much as it's helped
Is this halftime taking forever or is it just me?
go for an onside
So is this game over? I almost forgot about it it’s been so long
Would be awesome to get a UM-ND playoff semifinal game.
In b4 locked
I’m watching this game so I can see good football in a rivalry game instead of whatever you call that game in Gainesville right now.
Gus with some flashy spectacles.
What is that yellow button on Gus Johnson’s jacket
RIP pop smoke
Big moon Saturday respects the W💫💫
Day still holding out his beanie baby collection will come back in fashion
We are only 4 games away from a guaranteed 2 loss CFP team. The winner of this game loses to Wisc. Georgia beats Bama and OK and OK St trade games.
Gus Johnson is obnoxious
You misspelled "passionate".
What are some restaurants outside of your region that you see commercials for during CFB? I'm in southern California and have never seen a Daxby's. I don't think we even had Chick-fil-A until fifteen years ago or so.
You aint missing out
Ohio State fans travel well
Gus Johnson looks like an old baby like Benjamin buttons. Get him a hat and a scarf or something for his naked old baby head.
I wonder how much it cost Ohio University to air a commercial during this game.
If Jim Harbaugh was a Migo he'd be Take off
Jim Harbaugh watches the cleaning lady.
Is the cleaning lady a bad show?
No, fool! You're supposed to say things about Ryan Day!
Regardless of the outcome, it's nice to see a competitive game
Don’t jinx it
Yea I don’t have a dog in this race and I’m enjoying this game so much
happy holidays y’all
Happy holidays and fuck you
It’s 2:02 PM, and Michigan still sucks
Hey that’s our thing
Harbaugh about to try some 200iq onside kick shit here
Whatever happens, glad we didn’t get blown out like Michigan State did…
I'm glad we're playing to win. Mistakes on both sides, both teams want it. This is the game I wanted them to play. Why would we care about MSU? MSU played like a FSU team against Ohio State. No other Big 10 team was that bad.
Rose bowl at the very least yay
I’m ready for pain
The fact that there was fighting in the corridor is the best thing that happened all first half. Glad the physicality is still alive even through the decades and the “PoiNtS oF fOcUs” on stopping brawls
Brawls are the best part who doesn’t love that stuff
HOW BOUT DEM DAWGGGGGGSSSS
Play a real team, it’s the last week of the season
Can’t play a real team when we are the only real team in the nation unfortunately
Ohio state stopped blitzing for some reason, every time they blitzed Cade couldn’t get the ball off accurately, hopefully the continue to not blitz, that’d be cool
It'd be great if the snow stopped
Snow football is best football
Edit: when I’m watching from the bar
I don't like B1G football
Please for the love of god, someone blow out the other team. I don’t know how many more quality losses the Bearcats can take
The loser of this game isn’t a threat to UC
Final score 30-31 Michigan wins for the first time in 8 years. Never thought I’d say this but go blue!
Fuckin hell I love Notre Dame. Why not
there were some egregious missed holding calls on hutchinson in the first half, hopefully harbaugh talked to the refs before half
Have you watched a UM game this year? This is literally happened every play all year long and they never call it. It's like some illuminati shit lmao they ain't calling it in the second half either. Such BS
I swear there's holding on every play these days. Just the egregious ones get called.
The championship game should be best of 3, 1 game in Canada in an open stadium, 1 game in Singapore in an open stadium, and the 3rd if needed in an enclosed stadium.
Both teams looking good. Second half better be just as good.
Ryan Day tells his kids Santa isn't real.
Jim Harbaugh still believes in Santa!
Wait, Santa's not real?
Ryan Day lied.
Oh thank god!
FOR ALL RYAN DAY LOOKS LIKE HE DOES CRYPTO, HE SOLD BITCOIN IN 2015
JIM HARBAUGH DUMPS HIS LIFE SAVINGS IN TETHER
Inb4 lock. 29-27 Michigan
OSU players flicking off the Michigan players in tunnel was hilarious
Pardon my French but 🖕🏻
Dude stfu lol.
This is only for the NYC crowd, but after years ad YEARS and YEARS of terrible Montefiore ads, we finally got a heartwarming one that hit all the right notes. Good on them.
AAAAAAND RIGHT BACK TO DAVE FUCKING CHOKSI
Jim Harbaugh picks Wario when he plays Mario Kart
The problem with wario is?
Bourbon with a little egg nog in the coffee, Two Hearted tall cans.
Two Hearted is my favorite beer
Felt I needed something even stronger for today lol
Coffee bourbon from a local distillery around my sister's. It's serviceable.
At this point vodka straight. If things don't don't improve may ditch the glass and go straight from the bottle
I felt this comment lol
Sweet Water - Hazy IPA. 🍻 Go Blue!
Getting-cold coffee. Got work after the game. :(
Oh look more fake fights. Lovely
That shit really drives me crazy. Love the bad blood, but save it for the game and cut that shit out.
Jim Harbaugh sold his Pokémon cards in 1999
I would run through a wall for Charles Woodson
Ryan day doesn’t collect Pokémon cards
What happened to the good ole days when OSU flairs wouldn't use a certain letter in this thread
I was thinking that as well I don’t see any ❌
A few are doing it
Shit I'🅱️ doing it and I hate OSU
Please don’t make Charles Woodson sad, god
So annoying that mods split up our big game threads by half. The NFL sub certainly doesn't bother
Never been in an NFL game thread, I usually stay in the Brown's sub thread. How many comment do they usually get? The Reddit servers can only cache so many comments
It’s usually at the request of reddit Admins
Jim Harbaugh is leading Ohio State at halftime
Ooof, that Speak For Yourself looks like a budget First Take...
It might rub some the wrong way, but I enjoy sportscasters leaning into their fanhood.
It seems like it happens more often nowadays
Analysts, but Gus Johnson is a big Michigan fan, do you think people would be happy if he started being super pro Michigan. I think it would anger quite a bit of people
Fair, it should probably stay with the studio crew and not the announcing team
Harbaugh's message at halftime: "We're fucking them up. We're gonna fuck them up. Unless we fuck it up, in which case they're gonna fuck us up. But they're not fucking us up. We're fucking them up! Let's go fuck them up! Don't fuck it up out there"
That's the spirit of his message more or less
I don't want to hear, "Don't fuck up." I want to hear, "Fuck them up." You play to win not to lose.
The Cleaning Lady looks like the worst Breaking Bad ripoff ever
“The cleaning lady”
I mean my expectations for network TV couldn’t get any lower but are you fuckin kidding me fox
Someone get Woodson in that locker room!
The Cleaning Lady doesn’t look like the worst concept ever but it’s a Fox original so that just instantly makes it a no from me
Churchillian speech by Woodson there.
Michigan alumnus confirmed
We really have a series called the cleaning lady now
I just wish I could afford one
The cleaning lady? Are you serious?
Let’s start a fucking brawl in the first half game thread!!!!
Ok,. FUCK OHIO STATE
Jim Harbaugh thinks weed should still be illegal.
Ryan day narcs on kids who smoke weed
Speaking as an neutral fan, I love this. It's snowy and the teams legit hate each other.
How tf do they block out the band sound so well
Fake band perpetrated by the government.
Network has to pay royalties if they don't so they are motivated.
Woodson is awesome. I've loved the guy since 1997. One of the best football players ever.
And, he is a better person than ball player. Gives back, especially to U of M hospital, a ton.
Charles Woodson is a treasure
He's one of the reasons I'm a michigan fan
We should have played this game in Columbus because of the game getting cancelled last year change my mind you cant change my mind
Get over it, spoiled long enough
Now gimme your lunch money we’re buying a ticket to Indy
Disagree. Even years in C-Bus, Odd years in AA. Let’s keep it that way.
Woodson is the only Michigan player I've ever liked
Desmond Howard’s a likable guy.
UM losing their Woodson talisman, could be big
100 points, eh, Ryan?
What happened to Georgia Tech the last two weeks? I mean they’re not a good team but you would think they would at least look like a competent football team against ND and Georgia.
They are not even trying. They punted at Georgia’s 36-yard-line, down 24-0.
My heart is racing right now. So damn nervous
Ryan Day keeps Cheez-Itz in his pockets for a mid game snack
sounds like a great guy
Are there people who don’t do that?
Woodson...I love to hate him, but I love him!
This feels so much like 2016. Bad weather. Close game.
And an ultimate OSU win.
Such a humble fan base
When will the 2nd half start?
In between the real show which is all these gotDAMN commercials
Not soon enough
>second half thread
We have about 2 hrs left of commercials to get through.
When halftime is over
Locker room fight. You love to see it.
My feed keeps freezing. Wth is happening? I see some refs and players shoving?
Woodson makes me want to run through a brick wall and im not even a michigan fan
So is that ref who is supposedly an Ohio State fan actually reffing this game?
Random Mgoblog posters says it is confirmed. I cannot confirm the accuracy of the confirmation.
“This is not the first half this is the second half”
Some hard hitting analysis right there.
As in depth as the replays.
Thanks Harv… o wait
I’m only rooting for Michigan because I think Harbaugh is hilarious and I don’t want him to get fired.
I’ll take it.
He is hilarious and I hope it works out here.
"If they don't score another point"
Holding that Ohio State offense scoreless in the 2nd half would be the most impressive defensive performance I've ever seen
What jabroni designs a stadium where the teams use the same tunnel for the locker rooms. Just askin for trouble
TUNNEL SNAKES RULE!
One constructed in 1926 when football was played by graduate school students in top hats.
Think I’ve got most of that right.
Also put the tunnel at the 50 yd line so teams can’t even run out of it and down the field properly. Big house is janky as hell, bad stadium. Lots of seats though
All it does is increase the hate and intensity between the two teams. I love that they have to go through the tunnel together
It was designed with tunnel fights in mind
The one that wanted exactly what they get out of it 😂
Cheerin for you UM bros
Thank you friend, hope you win the PAC-12
The alliance has never been stronger
Best of luck against those Beavers!
Jim Harbaugh drives 65 in a 70 in the far left lane while driving a Prius.
I’d drive 55 in the left lane if you were behind me.
I love woodson
He's great. Wish he could get out there for the 2nd half, bet he'd still make a difference.
