    That was a hell of a defensive stand by fsu at their own 1 yard line. Tho the 2nd down play shuda been a td


    On a side note - I have always liked the idea of a player who punts + kicks

    FSU really needs to go up by a couple of scores. Not worried about the Michigan O but if the defense keeps them in it they could make a game changing score.

    Thats twice fSU have hit a deep ball down the left in one quarter.

    I cant decide if the mich qb is good or dog****. He has made a few really nice plays and at least 2 horrific ones

    Speight has been injured, he's a bit rusty. He's actually a decent QB.

    He's young, only a sophomore, but with Harbaugh as his coach I think he'll probably become someone to watch. He's 6'6" 240 with nice arm strength and can move in the pocket.

    I nearly destroyed my entire living room and my heart stopped several times but I did survive to see the Noles pull out a win! Outstanding game by two very possible playoff tans next year. My favorite match-up outside the playoffs lived up to its billing.

    The game was a hell of a lot of fun, crazy 4th quarter....

    I do think the announcers went on a whole lot about Michigan being down Peppers and Butt as if the Noles were playing at the pinnacle of health. Didn't mention not having our best defender out, or our best red zone receivng target out, or that we were down to our 5th and 6th safety and started 3 true freshman and a true sophmore in the back.

    It was a fun game (I say that after the win), I do like Michigans defense and felt in the second half I could see why they were so hyped....the d-line especially.

    I really look forward to next season, the Nole return a hell of a lot of very good players, it hurts to lose the heart of our defense and offense, but I think there is enough depth to be fine going into next season....Francois will also be another year older as well as most of the line. Playoffs 2017.

    I forgot this game was on and didn't tune until the second half. Good win by FSU over a quality (er, I guess) opponent. I've seen Michigan play a few times this season and outside of Butts and Taco (hehehehehehehehe, I just typed those 2 words together), none of their other players were terribly impressive to me or really stood out. Same for last night. They all looked...slow.

    IMHO Francois was Michigan's best player. He single handedly kept them in this game. FSU should have curb stomped UM. Much was made about UM being down Butts and Peppers, but FSU was without their top 4 safeties and played true freshman in the secondary all night.

    This game made me really wish U of L had taken care of business against UK. If we did we'd be playing in the Orange Bowl instead of FSU. If Dalvin Cook and Francois' running gave Michigan fits, Lamar Jackson would have melted their brains. UM defenders would have just fallen over on the field with ooze coming out of their ears and noses.

    Instead we get an LSU defense that is precisely tooled to handle U of L. I don't see us winning the Citrus Bowl. It ain't gonna happen, unfortunately.

    Oh and tiny head gunshow Michigan man is my new favorite fan:

    Congrats on the win guys. A lot has been made about the amount of seniors Michigan has but as Lou points out they're slow and lack elite athleticism. Harbaugh is doing a nice job of bringing in better athletes and impact players but its going to take him more than 2 recruiting cycles to get them to the upper echelon of teams. The current team plays well together but lacks explosive playmakers. Overall a good season and trending in the right direction

    When i fell asleep fSU was dominant on O and their passrush was giving Mich nightmares. Must have been a strong rally from Harbaugh for this to end so close

    Ended up being a fun game, but much like with Ohio State, the lack of athleticism bit us in the *** a few times... namely in the LB corp without Peppers (though Mettellus didn't look bad, he only played in garbage time this year), and the OL. Also saw where some of the lack of football IQ in the safety spots, and OL also showed up.

    Disappointing end to the season, but as we continue to grow and get more athletic under Harbaugh I'm excited to see the growth

    Michigan would beat Louisville by 40. When you lose two top 20 pick it does hurt. Best player on offense and defense.

    And BTW, I'm an Ohio State fan.
