"Insane one-handed catch sets up Badgers."



This may be easier to watch:

Good balance for a big and tall guy. He just made the NFL.

AllenS said...

... and Fumagalli only has four fingers on his left hand.

Yancey Ward said...

That still doesn't beat the Freeman catch against the Vikings for the Packers.

AllenS said...

make that 3 fingers and a thumb.

Mark said...

That really was not a one-handed catch. It was stopping the ball with one hand and bringing the ball in toward his body for a two-handed catch.

Yancey Ward said...

He may have only four fingers, but they are all made of StickUm.

Mark said...

This is a one-handed catch --

Michigan's Jordan Lewis Interception vs Wisconsin

rebel deuce said...

Sticky gloves - yawn...

Ignorance is Bliss said...

Nice catch. If he keeps playing like that he might have a shot at making Alabama's practice squad!

Unknown said...

He just scored an nfl contract!!

CJinPA said...

Nice catch. Yes, those modern, sticky gloves help.

gadfly said...

Yeah! He played an outstanding game against LSU as well.

PB said...

Nice kid. Nice family. Good for him.

Bay Area Guy said...

Incredible catch.

The Badgers are awesome in Football (they win 10 games nearly every year) and awesome in basketball (Finals 2 years ago with Frank the Tank Kaminsky).

And, of course, Rodgers is hot, so Green Bay is on fire.

Why doesn't Madison do something about the tremendous "football inequality" in Wisconsin? It isn't fair to us on the West Coast (49ers, Rams, Chargers all suck -- Raiders were finally good this season, but just lost their QB).

Here is a backhanded one-hand catch - Cato to Dobson.

Nine fingers scores again!

Ann Althouse said...

Congrats to the Badgers.

Original Mike said...

Well, at least the Badgers are doing their part to uphold the honor of the Big Ten.

Humperdink said...

"Nine fingers scores again!"

After your comment, I was watching closely. Incredible hands.

"One-eyed" Fred Arbanas (KC Chiefs 1961-70) came to mind.

Nice to see our host happy. Nothing like seeing your team win. Doesn't happen often enough for my teams--the Padres and the Chargers. And lately the Clippers aren't all that swell either.

Donald Douglas said...

I think I like the Badgers all the more being an Althouse fan, heh.

Excellent football game, in any case. Western Michigan could have beaten Wisconsin, so all the Badgers fans can count their lucky stars. They're on the winning side of all those missed opportunities.

Happy New Year, Althouse!

Ignorance is Bliss said...

The tough thing about being an Alabama fan is there are no pleasant surprises. ( There are also very few unpleasant ones. ) But if you go into every game expecting to win, they never have a chance to exceed expectations.

Kinda like being a Patriots fan.

Original Mike said...

Man, the Big Ten East has completely shat the bed this year. One last chance for them. Go Nits!

Earnest Prole said...

My grandfather, a football player from the days when eleven men would play sixty minutes, offense and defense, with no substitutions, used to say: "If you can touch it, you can catch it."

Mid-Life Lawyer said...

He just kept on making catches. Player of the game.

Big Mike said...

A team that played for the Big Ten championship beat the champions of the Mid-American Conference by a TD and two point conversion? Pardon me, but the word for that is "meh."

HT said...

This time might be different. We were very sluggish against Washington, and it turns out Kiffin had checked out. Now he's gone entirely and we will have a new OC. Let's see if we can get our mojo back.

Big Mike said...

@Original, I stopped watching after seeing Penn State muff a kickoff and throw two interceptions in their first three pass plays. Note to Trace McSorley: your team is wearing dark blue jerseys and white helmets. When you throw to wide open guys it's bad if they're wearing dark red helmets and white jerseys.

The Big Ten sent ten teams to bowl games, and that's a good thing. But going 3 - 7 is not so good.

Now, now, just because something is true, you don't have to say it out loud. Roll Tide. Clemson is going to be a very tough opponent next week.

If they had a drinking game every time the fawning press said "Lane Kiffin" during a broadcast, no one would be awake at the end of the game.

At home we kept saying, "Why don't they just give it to that Scarbrough kid until they prove they can stop him?"

They finally did. They couldn't. And good riddance to that worthless "genius".

aritai said...

amazing what Velcro can do. Or a human spider. A delight to behold.

HT said...

I know. How Jalen kept the ball so often I do not understand. Fortunate for us that game like so often during the season our D was all the O we needed. But Clemson is another kettle of fish. They have revenge on their mind. Last year's game was amazing. That onsides kick was a work of art.

eddie willers said...

Last year's game was amazing.

Dabo has a better team this year.






So does Saban.

HT said...

We may have a better team, but one, we didn't play like it against Washington.

Best catches:
anything Beckham
Prothro
the helmet catch Giants/Pats

Best strip - George Teague!!!

Big Mike said...

Oh! My! Penn State spotted USC 13 points and now is blowing them out.

Humperdink said...

PSU vs. USC Highly entertaining. Not sure PSU can sustain this offensive explosion. Personal foul calls are helping.

Meade said...

Penñ State might beat the over/under all by itself.

Humperdink said...

McSorley is fearless.

Humperdink said...

Over/under is 53.

Meade said...

Too many touchdowns.

Humperdink said...

"McSorley is fearless."

And not smart sometimes.

Comanche Voter said...

Out here in Los Angeles, the place is full of SC honks. Two of my friends turned the game off when it was 49-35 in favor of Penn State. Called them to let them know that the Trojans had pulled it out. Fotunately they had left the recorder on.

That said--the SC fans I know will be insufferable for several months. It was a great game though. Neither team left anything in the locker room--they came to play.

Big Mike said...

@Comanche Voter, 101 points between the two teams!?! I wouldn't have thought a college team could score that much if there was no defense on the field.

Gahrie said...

Great game at the Rose Bowl.....I can't wait until next year...

Fight on!

Gahrie said...

@ Big Mike:

How about 222- 0 ?

Blogger Meade said..."Too many touchdowns."

I concur.

Earnest Prole said...

Too many touchdowns

52–49 is a basketball score.

Lane Kiffin is out as Alabama's Offensive Coordinator. He was the one making those calls where Jalen kept the ball. That's a good way to get him hurt. Bama started rolling when they began giving Bo the ball. Something tells me he'll have many more opportunities next Monday night.

Clemson is out for revenge and there's a very good chance they'll get it. I have a lot of respect for them. Their defense is excellent and based on recent play, their offense looks better than Bama's. Their QB is very talented. They hung 40 points on Bama last year. I don't know if Bama's offense is powerful enough to score more points than Clemson will. I'll pulling for Bama but, if anything, this is going to be a harder game than last year's championship match. It may come down to who makes a critical mistake (like last year) or which coach is better on that given evening. It looks like it'll be must see football between the undisputed two best college teams.

Fumagalli is an Italian surname strictly bound to the city of Milano, Lombardy:

That's uncommon - most Italian migrants came from southern Italy, which is the poorest part of the country. On this same site, you can find the distribution of other Italian names you know: just write them in the input box at the upper-left corner and push the button "Trova" ("Find").
