    Man, I am extremely saddened that you got that HB Townsend to instacommit. He's going to be awesome but will probably be like 3rd string on your team lol.

    Ya Texas was mad to.

    I was shocked when I found him as a 4*. His build is by far the best you can get out of recruiting. I got literally the exact same guy last season.

    I had a user game opportunity pop-up while I was playing my game, so I didn't have time to save my highlights. For me, it usually takes 10-15 minutes to encode and upload the highlights. I will take this is as my warning, it shouldn't happen again.

    Whew.

    That was the sound of the collective deep breaths taken by the fans in Ann Arbor as Michigan closed out an extremely tight contest to beat Notre Dame with a game-ending field goal, winning by a final score of 32-30.

    Michigan looked in good shape early on, forcing and recovering an opening kickoff fumble. Then, they were unable to advance the ball and were forced to kick a field goal to go up 3-0. After that, the 1st half was almost all Notre Dame. The Irish would respond by scoring 17 unanswered points to put themselves up 17-3 and Michigan's offense seemed ill-equipped to answer. However, resuming the theme from last season, the Michigan defense would come up with big play after big play to keep the Wolverines in it, and the Offense would finally wake up with a couple of huge plays late in the game.

    After a Michigan field goal to pull the score to 17-6 in Notre Dame's favor to close the half, Michigan came out determined to claw their way back in to the game, and started the 2nd half with their third field goal of the game making the score 17-9. Then, Michigan would force a huge turnover and would finally capitalize on the ensuing drive with the first touchdown of the game for the Wolverines, pulling to within two following a missed two point conversion attempt making the score 17-15 Notre Dame with 2:30 to go in the 3rd.

    But Notre Dame would answer with an impressive drive to pull the game back to two possessions after a touchdown pass, putting the score at 24-15 to begin the 4th quarter.

    That's when the Michigan Offense figured out how to play football. After a couple of plays to get the Wolverines in striking distance, HB A. Moore found a hole on a lead run and took the ball to the house on a 33 yard Touchdown run to put the Wolverines back within a score, 24-22.

    After yet another big turnover forced by the Michigan defense, Michigan started its next drive deep in its own territory, down 2 points, and Notre Dame brought the house, hoping to stop the Wolverine momentum. Instead, they managed to leave a Wolverine receiver wide open for what would end up being a 90 yard touchdown pass to give Michigan its first lead of the game with 5:40 to go in the game at the new score of Michigan - 29, Notre Dame - 24.

    After that, Michigan had several opportunities to put the game away after two different stops by the defense, one on a 4th down conversion, the other on a turnover. But, the offense was not able to put it away and with just 21 seconds to go, the Notre Dame offense would finally break through in the 4th quarter with a touchdown that looked like the gut-wrenching nail in the coffin for the Wolverines' national title hopes.

    But the Wolverines had found success all day on returns and would get another nice one here, moving the ball past their own 35 to shorten the field with 16 seconds to go. On 1st down, the Wolverines went to their main receiver on a streak in hopes that they could get most of that ever-important yardage and connected on a huge play that put the Wolverines at the Notre Dame 40 yard line. With 11 seconds to go, the Wolverines knew they still needed another big play, and yet again were able to connect on a deep circle route and a great catch to put the ball at about the 15 yard line with 5 seconds to go. Michigan decided to run a play to the left to line up the kicker and used their last time out with 3 seconds to go. On the final play of the game, Michigan connected on the field goal to close the game with the win and the final score of Michigan 32, Notre Dame 30.

    Yeah we are advancing tonight as soon as I can get a chance to do it. Going to be out and about I think tonight but when I get home I will.

    And I'm fairly open, tomorrow day should work and night is kinda iffy. Sunday should be pretty open. My birthday is Sunday, though, so I don't really know exactly when I will be on.
