Petway nails threes to death metal. Seriously.
After watching the Kovacs fumble on Sat, I was left wondering where has shin angles (better tackling) and stripping ball gone? I would think after two years of drills brought by the GERG we would be better on both accounts since they were to be stressed. What seems strange to me is the regression outside of certain contributors on tackling and ripping the ball. I can forgive the latter since you need to tackle first before ripping the ball out, but I am sort of surprised with this being year 2 in the quest to have one of the better tackling teams that also creates turnovers. We seem to do a lot of reaching, but that could be due to poor angles. Some people are naturally better than others (David Harris), but it can also be taught hence the GERG's comments when he first joined the team.
I wanted to share with the MGoBlog community a suggested new nickname for Denard. Denard Dieciseis. Kinda like Chad Ochocinco. But better. Let me know what you think...
Alright, I know everybody's discussed the Rufus v. Brutus thing ad nauseum, but I just read through the Page 2 Q&A about that, and saw the link for the Oregon Duck's fight. I posted this as a comment in the mascot fight thread from today, but I thought it was just too good to leave buried down there. If this is too OT, feel free to delete, but hopefully you all can get a good laugh.
I just love how the duck taunts him as he is beating him up. And the cheerleaders don't really know what to do.
The talk of Lane Kiffin going for two got me thinking...
We've already missed one PAT on a bad snap, and I could see it possibly happening at least one or two more times on the season. However, that's not the main reason I think Michigan should go for two after every touchdown. It seems like with Denard running the offense, we would have a really high success rate at 2pt conversions (I think it would be higher than 50% at least, which would make it statistically a good decision to go for two).
The media was making a big deal about all the Florida Gators getting arrested during Urban Meyer coaching span... Why because they are a top teir program. Why hasnt the media attacked MSU? but we get the attention for going over in practice time for stretching.
What are the total # of arrests under Dantonio? i know florida was 30 right?
Whos winning the criminal battle MSU or UF?
Looks like Jewel Hampton is out for the season again, after missing last year with a knee injury.
