that is nice bonus change
I haz sad.
Football team wins and wins big on the road. Denard does his Denardy thing and runs for hundredry jilliion zillion yards, Gibbons puts it through the uprights (even when he misses), D is dominant, gets a pick 6 and wins the turnover battle for a change this season.
Yet no glorious front page muppets. No "you can't have one without the other" glorious, wonderful, lovely, Muppets.
Does anyone know why?
Edit: And now I know - it's Purdue (not a Muppet-worthy win)
When faced with insomnia, I apparently update the recruiting rankings. Scout's (sorry, Fox Sports Next's) new layout is an absolute unnavigable travesty. As there was all of one new commitment this week, that's all I've got. Changes since the last rankings:
10-1-12: Illinois picks up Tyler White.
|Big Ten+ Recruiting Class Rankings|
|Rank||School||# Commits||Rivals Avg||Scout Avg||24/7 Avg||ESPN Avg||Avg Avg^||POINTS*|
^The average of the average rankings of the four recruiting services (the previous four columns). The figure is calculated based on the raw numbers and then rounded, so the numbers above may not average out exactly.
*The product of number of Commits and Average Average
NOTE: Unranked recruits are counted as two-star players.
On to the full data after the jump.
Good God. They make Maryland's look like they were designed by Michelangelo.
Nice to see 300 yards of rushing. Seems to have been Hoke's message for the past two weeks.
Defense was dominant. Anything they got had to be spectacular or hard earned.
Clock killing. We were on the field for a LONG time.
FG kicking, aside from the crossbar one.
Kick off coverage was eh (fumble recover aside)
Fitz... Suffered today from the "8-9 guys in the box to stuff Denard and I don't have an extra blocker like he does and we are not passing the ball." Even still, 1.1 ypc sucks.
WR drops. Don't know if it was because of the cold or what... but there were at least 3 good gains that Denard put on the money that the WR dropped.
Needing 24 carries from Denard to win. Seeing him rack up yards was nice and he didn't take any big hits... but there should have been another way to win this game.
