Yes, it's illegal if Butt didn't come from the huddle.

Read-option should be illegal if you can't do that.

These refs seem to have money on the pont spread.

At this point I'm surprised when we don't get flagged for something.

Once again, Michigan can't get a targeting call.

Halftime:

Michigan 35
Zebras 6
Rutgers 10

And, since the zebras are being so sympathetic toward Rutgers, they're donating their points to Rutgers.

And we've got to go another half with those pinheads.

And that wasn't an illegal substitution, because Jake had nothing to do with the substitution.

Had the urban myth or Nick the Great called the play, it'd be the ESPN Play Of The Day, and they'd be hailed as play-calling geniuses.

Big Ten officiating continues to get worse and worse. It will continue to fail as long as the good old boys network remains in control.

Yeah that was bad. The non-targeting was worse. The guy aimed for the head, with his head. Enforce it correctly or get rid of it. UM's special teams needs to shore themselves up.

It is way past time for the conferences to start fining these officials. Or else have review on every play right from the TV booth. Let the TV guys tip off the officials. Twice these refs have spotted the ball at least 1.5 yards off, both in Rutgers' favor. These guys sure seem to be watching the spread, but Peppers and Ruddick are screwing up the works for them.

I did see a great sign on Gameday from Alabama (playing LSU)

"TIGERS SUCK I use this sign a lot"

Clemson
LSU
Auburn
Missouri

What happened on the penalty on Rutgers return?

Listening to game on radio and the play calling I'd horrible.

They ruled it was not targeting. So no penalty.

I'd kick an onsides since you're almost kicking from midfield.

Either that, or kick it out of the endzone. Just don't kick it to Grant again.

Kick coverage has regressed to the Hoke era today and the defense has looked very shaky considering the competition.

It's been an up-and-down day for the defense, but Chris Wormley is having a heck of a game.

43-16, good guys.

That was easy. Interesting decision to go for 2 there.
