Football Display Case
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents
Yeah, Eddie Lacy = Taylor Martinez is a great foundation to form an argument on.
If you form tackle someone properly they will go down. Read Bo's book he spends a good time talking about tackling in it.
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

Yeah, when Alabama's offensive line moves your front seven back at the point of attack it's pretty hard to get in position for those nice form tackles .
I'm talking about the missed tackles not the plays where they were obliterated. Did you watch the game? Are you actually trying to say Georgia didn't miss a plethora of tackles?
El Guapo asks "What is this plethora?"
"Play hard and with great effort"
Are you even reading what I'm writing? To begin with, I never claimed that the SEC played quality football, I claimed it was better than the Big Ten, and then I said that when Alabama engages your defenders at the point of attack it's hard to get into position to make good form tackles. How you got "Georgia didn't miss a bunch of tackles" from that is beyond me.
It would not have to be strong kool aid. Take off your rose colored homer glasses and look up for once. There is a FIVE loss team playing in the Big Ten "Championship" tonight. FIVE! If you think either one of these teams could hold their own against either Georgia or Alabama, I have some ocean front property in Kansas to sell you.
Stop the uniform changes! Contact Dave Brandon 734-764-9416.
Ok is that seriously your argument?There aren't many divisions in football that are going to put a great team in a conference championship game if the best two teams in that division are ineligible. Also where did I say they would hold their own against Georgia or Alabama?
Gus Johnson can make any game sound entertaining
And the Big Ten refs haven't even gotten involved yet!

so, is martinez gone after this year. that denard run he just had freaked me out.

he's not, redshirt jr
for what it's worth.
Yep, that's Simba made out of a pineapple.
Wow, honestly as a conference and as a team we need to increase our talent to match the sec.

We could start paying players like Bama and Auburn.
If auburn is paying players and had THAT kind of performance this season, that's the definition of a loser.
either way, we need those players..
Hey now War Eagle builds congregations!
Great idea! We'll start by moving the population back up North, make the weather better, loosen our academic standards and allow massive over-signing. That should solve the problem.
How do SEC teams have looser academic standards? Aren't the NCAA standards the same everywhere?
I think our league needs to stop blaming the weather and everything else and start committing itself to running better programs. That starts with coaching. No more hiring retreads like Ron Zook and Gerry DiNardo. And while Kill and Beckman were somewhat better hires, I'm not sure an SEC school would have gone for them. I'll be interested in seeing what MSU does about Narduzzi, who is sure to receive offers elsewhere. An SEC school would cling for dear life to the guy.
I'm assuming a Nebraska win is best for us, right? A Nebraska loss would put them in the Capital One Bowl and bump us to the Outback versus South Carolina it seems.
Strength equipment is expensive and guarantees you nothing. A strong will is free and can give you everything you want.
im still just happy we are going to bowls especially vs good/fun teams to play against. After 'those three years' im not taking bowls for granted anymore and seeing Big Blue play an extra game
well, im not sure if uk is going to a bowl this year.
Straw Poll revisited for those in the SEC thread: which offense would you rather have, UW's or Neb's?
With our current players? Neb hands down.
Yeah,l that was kind of the sarcastic point of the "poll". That thread was basically like "Bama because they're awesome! 350 rushing yards!", without regards to the fact that Bama has the most talent in the nation probably.
My niece throws better than Martinez.
Will TMart get drafted? Not shifty enough to be a speed back. Not big enough to be a power back. Can't throw well enough to be a quarterback. Too much of a cocky jerk to be a coach. I envision him hanging out in Lincoln for the rest of his life hitting on college girls.
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.

I just tuned in, how empty is that Stadium...
Just seen on twitter that Rick Majerous died.
That's a bummer. He was a real character that made college basketball better. He really cared about his players too.
And when we play as a team, when the old season is over, you and I know, it's gonna be Michigan again, Michigan
The attendance at this game is pathetic. Didn't expect this from Nebraska fans. Looks like we should only expect sellouts when Michigan and Ohio play in the BTCG. Fortunately it looks like that will happen every year pretty soon.

Not fortunate for the hotels that will host ohio fans. Blech.
what in the mother of god was that formation?
They stole it from my daughter's 4th grade flag football team. Not kidding. Her team lined up like that in every game and we always scratched our heads.
There's a time and a place for spontaneity.
Wtf was that play?
Wow, that was one hell of a play. Ah innovation. I miss you.
Coolest 8 yard play I've ever seen
Big gulps huh? Alright! Well, see ya later.
I like how Wisky runs outside the tackles.
I didn't think that was allowed.
CAN WE HAZ THAT FORMATION PLZ?
Pelini gonna pop!
but in reality, this is basically like watching two 7-5 B1G teams in front of a 50% full arena. You make us so proud Big Ten
I've noticed that the camerawork is (mostly) only showing the lower bowl when it shows the field-level shots. I guess it's so the hype shots that they get from this game won't have a wall of empty seats in the background.

Between Melvin Gordon and Montee Ball and now Derrick Watt, it seems like Wisconsin has basically established that they're going to basically run with the occasional short screen or flare. This suits Nebraska's very casual, unconcerned run defense.
So, the so-called "barge play", where half of the state of Wisconsin lines up to give the RB or FB running room, works very well against a team like Nebraska. TD Wisconsin. If you can find nine big guys, including a few good blocking TEs and RBs, a backfield that is a galactic void is not a problem. Important takeaway here.

how about pelini's face after that td?
You can sum up this sport in two words, 'You never know.'
I hope Wisconsin doesn't blow it like the first time they played Nebraska.
