Alright just like last year this thread had to be done too. Seeinred, iNFaMousToM, and even weaksidetackle and his buckeye rantings are welcome!

Stupid Freshmen:
Detroit News said:
Two Michigan football players face trials on separate charges

ANN ARBOR -- Two University of Michigan football players are expected to go on trial next month on separate charges of indecent exposure and driving while intoxicated.

Wide receiver LaTerryal Savoy, 21, of Mamou, La., attended a pretrial hearing Friday on charges that he exposed himself July 23 to a 21-year-old woman he knew inside Michigan Stadium. He pleaded not guilty at an arraignment Wednesday.

He is charged with one count of indecent exposure, a misdemeanor that carries up to one year in jail and a fine. His trial is set for Sept. 21.

Linebacker Obi Ezeh, 19, of Grand Rapids, pleaded not guilty to operating a vehicle while intoxicated, also a misdemeanor.

He was arrested May 22 after his vehicle struck a utility pole. His trial is set for Sept. 19.

Nicholas Roumel, a lawyer for both players, said Savoy's case was accidental.

"In order for this to be a crime, this has to be done knowingly," Roumel said. "I get the impression he just forgot to zip up his fly."

Roumel told the Detroit Free Press he was still talking to prosecutors about Ezeh's case.

Head coach Lloyd Carr said in a statement that he will wait until the end of the judicial process before commenting on Savoy. He also said that Ezeh understands there are consequences for his behavior.

Two other Michigan players also faced charges this year.

Tight end Carson Butler and defensive back Christian Richards were charged with attacking a fellow student on St. Patrick's Day.

Butler was cleared of charges, while Richards was convicted of assault and sentenced to six months probation.

Both players were released from the team in March, but Butler might be reinstated.

FUCK YES.

Very little else gets me pumped up as much as seeing the Maize and Blue take the field. Just like every year, I'm really excited and optimistic about the upcoming season. I'll be at the notre dame ( :puke: ) game, and hopefully I'll be going to Camp Randall for the Wisconsin game too.

2nd-tier Appalachian State stuns No. 5 Michigan 34-32
By LARRY LAGE, AP Sports Writer
September 1, 2007

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- What was supposed to be a tuneup turned into a stunner: Appalachian State 34, No. 5 Michigan 32.

Julian Rauch's 24-yard field goal with 26 seconds left put the Mountaineers ahead of the Wolverines and Corey Lynch's blocked field goal in the final seconds sealed one of college football's biggest upsets.

The two-time defending champions from former Division I-AA were ahead of the nation's winningest program 28-14 late in the second quarter, then their storybook afternoon seemed to unravel late in the fourth quarter.

Mike Hart's 54-yard run put the Wolverines ahead -- for the first time since early in the second quarter -- with 4:36 left.

One snap after the go-ahead touchdown, Brandent Englemon intercepted an errant pass, but the Wolverines couldn't capitalize and had their first of two field goals blocked.

Appalachian State drove 69 yards without a timeout in 1:11 to set up the go-ahead kick, but it still wasn't over.

Chad Henne threw a 46-yard pass to Mario Manningham, giving Michigan the ball at Appalachian State's 20 with 6 seconds left.

Lynch blocked the kick and returned it to the other end of the field as the final seconds ticked off, and his teammates rushed across the field to pile on Lynch as the coaching staff and cheerleaders jumped with joy.

Appalachian State has won 15 straight games, the longest streak in the nation.

The Mountaineers are favored to win the Football Championship Subdivision -- formerly known as Division I-AA -- but they weren't expected to put up much of a fight against a team picked to win the Big Ten and contend for the national title.

Alas, that's the beauty of college football.

No Division I-AA team had beaten a team ranked in The Associated Press poll from 1989-2006, and it's unlikely that it happened after Division-I subdivisions were created in 1978.

Appalachian State's win does seem to pass the one second-tier programs used to regard as their crowning achievement -- The Citadel's season-opening win in 1992 over Arkansas that led to the firing of Razorbacks coach Jack Crowe following the game.

Michigan coach Lloyd Carr will not get fired after this upset, but he might've wished he retired after last season when the Wolverines won 11 games and played in the Rose Bowl.

Carr will likely second-guess a lot from the game, and the practices that led to it, and might regret going for 2-point conversions twice in the final 15-plus minutes.

After Appalachian State went ahead 31-20, Hart scored with 24 seconds left in the third quarter and the 2-point conversion failed as Carr tried to pull within a field goal. Following Hart's late TD that put Michigan ahead by one, Carr couldn't justify kicking the extra point and backup running back Brandon Minor stumbled to the turf.

The Mountaineers improved to 7-36-1 against top-tier teams since 1978, beating a team other than Wake Forest in such matchups for the first time.

Since beating Wake Forest in 2000, they had been respectable against strong programs, trailing LSU and JaMarcus Russell by two touchdowns entering the fourth quarter before losing 24-0 in 2005 and leading Auburn late in the third before losing by a TD in 1999.

But Appalachian State proved it belonged from start to finish, making up for a slight size disadvantage with more speed.

Quarterback Armanti Edwards threw for 227 yards, three scores and two interceptions while he kept Michigan guessing with enough skills running to have 62 yards rushing. Dexter Jackson caught three passes for 92 yards, and scored twice, including a 68-yard reception that tied the game early and provided a glimpse of what was coming over the next three hours.

Hart, who went almost two quarters without a carry because of an injury, ran for 188 yards and three touchdowns. Henne was 19-of-37 for 233 yards in a lackluster game that included a TD and an interception in Mountaineer territory.

Sure, sure, any likelihood for a national title is out the window. But we're tied for 1st in the Big 10. I'm confident the Wolverines will come out stronger than ever next Saturday, and then continue to roll from there. And Mike Hart will have 250+ yards next week too. After that, it's hello Pasadena.

I still have faith. It's only one game. Yes, it was a horrendous embarassment to the program, but I'm hoping it was a fluke. Not a fluke that App state won, because by all accounts I've heard they deserved it the way they played, but a fluke that Michigan played the way they did. Theres a lot of football left, and winning the Big 10 title would go a long way in easing the pain of this loss.

Uh, nope -- I see a 4 game losing streak and 0-2 at home to start the season. Lloyd Carr will be out after next week and the week 3 matchup with ND will become much more interesting because the story will be "How will the team respond?"

The Lloyd Carr era must come to an end. His comments after the game tell the whole story. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever that Michigan comes into this game in any way unprepared if Lloyd Carr takes his job seriously. For christs sake, you have (well, had) 2 guys that are (again, were) legitimate Heisman candidates! This goes WAY beyond losing to AppState (a Back-To-Back Defending champion team that could easily whip ND, the entire MWC, WAC, C-USA and about 20 other respectable D-1 teams) - this is about a 3 game losing streak that in each game has come down to a lack of preparation by players and the coaching staff. This is about an overall lack of defense for 4 years running. This is about 1-5 against the boys from Columbus in the last 6 years. This is about a 1-5 bowl record in those same years and an overall 5-7 bowl record.

Oregon averaged just under 450 yards of offense last year - today Michigan's D allowed 387 yards from a very good, but also not Big Ten-level Appalachian State. Oregon averaged 31 points per game last year and returns its QB, RB and 3 of 4 Receivers. To make matters even worse -- Michigan State looks much improved while Wisconsin, Ohio State, and Penn State all look as expected. Christ, at this point ND and Eastern Michigan look like the bright spots.

Jesus Christ quit with the logic, I'm trying to be optimistic here :action-sm

I could not agree more about the Lloyd Carr point, although I didn't hear his comments after the game. Obviously the team played like shit today, but at the same time, we have to think that it's not anywhere even fucking close to how they can (and hopefully will) play the rest of the season. I haven't given up yet, but if we lose next week, I may just have to.

Well, your defense has three weeks to put their game together, if they don't the Penn State offense just needs to keep the lead and our defense will do the rest this year. Beating our defense this year won't be as easy as it was last year.

As much as I wanted you guys to lose I've gotta admit an un-defeated match up of Penn State and scUM would have been much better.
