First Michigan lost to Ohio State. >:(
Then, last night, the Lions lost to the Cowboys. >:(
Through most of the first half, the Lions looked good and we thought they were going to do it, but of course not.
I guess the refs made some questionable calls. There was what appeared to be a facemask grab committed by a Cowboy as he was about to cross into the end zone. I think the refs decided it was a touch, not a grab. Maybe it was, I dunno.
Another time, Caldwell was calling for a timeout. It looked like he’d called for the timeout a few times, but the clock was still ticking. Caldwell looked pissed.
That’s what I noticed. But, even if the refs didn’t make a single bad call, the Lions still would’ve lost. Looked like their performance dropped in the second half. Prater even missed a field goal. The final score was 21-42. Yay. >:(
So, now the Lions and the Packers share the NFC North’s top shelf, with 9-8 each. The Lions and the Packers will have the Sunday Night Football slot on, well, Sunday night. That will be the last game of the regular season.
Also, Friday night, Michigan plays Florida State in the Orange Bowl. I know Michigan will win. Wish I could say the same about the Lions when they play the Packers on Sunday.
