He mis-spoke (Akin style). He meant to say, "We sucked balls."

While part of me wants to believe this is true, and that Michigan lost because they were stoned... nah. Believing that takes away from Appy State's victory, and they deserve that victory.

Toss in the embarrassing loss to Oregon the next week and the idea that they lost because they were stoned becomes less believable. Unprepared, overconfident, arrogant, with a lack of leadership and no will to persevere, these are far more believable than being stoned.

Uh huh. Still the biggest upset in college football history.

WTF? They're still talking about the Appalachian State loss?

Let it go, people. Let... it... go.

It's not your fault.

That doesn't make it any less hilarious. I was at my dad's (a Michigan fan) house in Toledo during that game, he said fark it and decided he was going to take a nap rather than watch the rest of the game, I woke him up as they got ready to kick the field goal, "Come on dad, they're going to win it with this FG." He put his glasses on just in time to watch the blocked attempt, he was pissed for the rest of the weekend, mainly because I was on the floor laughing my ass off for a good five minutes.

In a shocking revelation, this former player told me that over half of Michigan's defensive starters and several key offensive starters partied deep into the night the night before the 2007 Michigan vs. Appalachian State game, then smoked marijuana hours before kickoff in an effort to "see how bad we can beat 'em up if we are stoned."

Pot doesn't work that way.

to be fair, that was the overall tenor of the article. zero offseason training or game-week preparation.

Didn't you read the article? He's saying the second part, the stoned part, was because of all those first things.
 
2012-08-21 03:07:03 PM
Yeesh. If true, Carr lost control.
 
2012-08-21 03:12:58 PM
I was one of the equipment guys for that Wolverines team. The truth is that pot was just the beginning of the story. After smoking up, the players used it as a "gateway drug" to LSD. The team bought a whole sheet between them and dropped it all before the game. Henne and Long should've said no but they were listening to Dark Side of the Moon at the time so they thought it was a good idea. I'm not sure how the hits were distributed but one guy took a ten strip and later made the biggest error of the game (I wonder why). They took it all in the locker room before kickoff and It really started to kick in towards the end of the first quarter. Our best offensive playmaker saw the stadium melt and became convinced that the ball was out to get him. Then Ndamukong Suh showed up and was like "Damn yall trippin balls" and ripped a child in half, the end.

I'm sure most Michigan fans wanted to have them stoned after that loss.
 
2012-08-21 03:15:26 PM
Can he prove Appy State players weren't stoned as well?

How is the guy a sore loser? A sore loser would be trying to pin the blame on something out of the teams control. He is clearly pinning the blame for the loss on the teams lack of game prep, off season prep, and an attitude that they didn't have to work for the win, that it would just be handed to them.
 
2012-08-21 03:24:48 PM
Sad thing for Michigan is that Oregon's team likely was stoned outta their gourds when they kicked dat ass.

He's saying, "When you beat us, we weren't at our best."

It's subtle, but dicky.

I liked the part where he blames the players from "Ohio and the West Coast" lol

Actually, he's talking about how this team self destructed before any football even was played. He's commenting on how they didn't function as a team, didn't give their best, and how their hubris was punished by App State. He's also saying that was a warning flag about huge problems with entitlement and lack of drive in the entire program, and how he's hoping a new regime will bring Michigan football out of disgrace.
 
2012-08-21 03:41:33 PM
Not buying it. They would've been clear-headed long before kickoff.

I'm not denying that that is part of it. But, it still has the component of demeaning App State's efforts.

If I remember right, I think I was stoned that day as well.

I did read the article, hence why I made reference to them. And the stoned part smacks of simply trying to retroactively cover their arses. "Yeah, we were overconfident, unprepared, arrogant, our leaders were either not leading us or not respected by the players, and when the going got tough we folded. But we still would have beaten them if we hadn't been stoned, too."

Might be true, but sounds to me like someone just doesn't want to admit that Appy State just plain beat Michigan, in the Big House.

Yeah, but Michigan was a then #6 team knocked off by a 1-AA team. That trumps a #1 being knocked off by a 1-A team, IMO.

Of course they are. That loss destroyed that program for years. Only now they are just getting over it.

App State grad (sadly well before the Michigan win). I wouldn't be surprised if the App State players were stoned too, that's kind of the thing to do in Boone.

At any rate I'd bet about 99% of the App State fans were stoned.

/go Mountaineers!
//going to the App/ECU game in two weeks
///prolly stoned

The Muthaship: I'm not denying that that is part of it. But, it still has the component of demeaning App State's efforts.


I don't get that at all. He's saying they demeaned App State prior to the game, and got destroyed during the game because they were completely unprepared for how good App State actually was. He actually lays out how how any reasonably good team could have beat them in those circumstances, and points out they didn't just lose that game, but continued to lose.
 
2012-08-21 03:59:47 PM

Mr Guy: I don't get that at all.


He himself makes it sound like he was outside of the mentality of the group, which was 'we can hang 50 on 'em even stoned'. But, he was there where the partying was going on to hear it. He points out that key players on both sides of the ball were high. And only says they were high against App State. I'm not saying it's the main point he was trying to make, but it's the one that the writer ran with hardest.

/the key thing to remember is
//it doesn't amount to a hill of beans either way.

From the above linked article: It was the first loss in 33 games for the Huskers, dating back to the Missouri game in 1969. It also snapped a 23-game winning streak - both marks tops in the nation.

Not sure why this would matter. Unprepared is unprepared
 
2012-08-21 04:05:57 PM
When was the last time you heard "we beat outselves, they didnt beat us" when it was anything shy of excuses and butthurt? When you add the bonus "its because we wuz high" stupidity it just gets sadder.
 
2012-08-21 04:24:53 PM
I know they are different sports and all, but whenever I played hockey or indoor soccer when I was stoned, I was better than I was when sober. I suppose because those sports allow for a greater level of creativity with and without the ball/puck. There weren't designed plays being run. I knew where everyone on my team was at all times and time seemed to move a lot slower, and with both of those things happening, I saw plays develop better.
 
2012-08-21 04:44:21 PM
I was gonna win the game, until I got high.
I was gonna be in the Hall of Fame, but then I got high.
Now my team's a joke and I know why.
(Why, man?)
Because I got high.
Because I got high.
Because I got hi-igh.

They may be getting over it but the good folks in Ohio haven't. I'm a recent App State grad and drove through Ohio last weekend with an App State decal on my truck. I got quite a few random honks and thumbs up gestures from folks driving cars with OSU decals.

I remember seeing this inside the concourse of the stadium for the school I went to, everybody was cheering including me when ASU pulled it off but it made the Big Ten look real bad.

there should be no excuses. Michigan lost, App State won.

I have no doubt rich rod is a good coach. he just was not a good fit for Michigan, unless you are from Ohio.

Chris Ballas from thewolverine.com has covered UofM sports for a long time. He gave the article zero chance of being true. It cites one anonymous former player five years after the fact. If any part of it were true the writer would have been able to get multiple sources to confirm.
