Northwestern and Michigan played in a truly, truly awful football game. The scoreboard spelled "M00N" for far too long, and really, it was a lot of suck. That's fitting, since Pat Fitzgerald said earlier this week that the Wildcats were "embracing the suck." There was so much suck in this game, that we're dedicating an entire post to embracing it in Vine form. (Vines via ESPN).
1. Letfy punt
Hunter Niswander mishandled the punt, and in an effort to get it off, he kicked it with his left foot. It went 20 yards.
2. Best fumble ever?
Michigan fumbled after the ball hit the player in motion.
3. Devin Gardner attempts offense
On Michigan's next possession, Devin Gardner fell over while trying to hand off the ball. Nobody tripped him. He just fell.
4. Tony Jones PUNT RETUR... oh :(
Tony Jones never returns punts. Earlier in the game, he called for a fair catch when the Wolverines weren't within 30 yards of him. This is why.
5. Devin Gardner attempts offense, part two
Devin Gardner had a player wide open down the sideline. He chose to make this throw instead.
6. Northwestern attempts trick play
After finally getting good field position after the interception return, Northwestern started its drive with this trick play. It ended up punting.
7. This is not how to down a punt
Northwestern finally had a good punt! Then they kicked it into the endzone.
8. COME BACK BALL COME BACK
It did not oblige.
9. A perfect ending to the suck
After driving down the field to score a touchdown, Northwestern went for 2 to win. Trevor Siemian slipped and fell.
