I agree with your premise, but that's not a fair comparision. Urbs was able to cherry pick a talented team with the perfect QB for his system. OSU may have had a down year for one year due to the coaching change, but the year before they lost one game. We lost 5 or more games for 4 straight years. Urbs walked into a great team and Hoke is trying to build one. I agree something has to change, but there is no comparing the two.
MSU Game Open Thread
When MSU's offensive coordinator looks like a genius compared to Michigan's, it is time to make a change.
We gotta be tougher out there. Physical. Michigan men. Toughness. Physical."
When the CB is playing 10 yards off, throw a quick screen to your WR. Brilliant. I wish we could figure that out
Commence self destruct mode: in 3 - 2 - 1.
Nice play State. Way to actually look at film and changes plays as needed to maximize your teams' talents and abililiies.
What's that like anyways? As a Michigan fan I've never seen that before.
How the fuck do we get our asses kicked two years ago in EL and then today we get our asses kicked worse....where the fuck is the development...where's the fucking toughness?
but I'll have to avoid it for a few days after this game I think. It's gonne be an inferno. Here we come 500 pts to post rule
I'd consider suspending posting altogether.
Hoke - we got out-toughed, out physicalled
Borges - we had a good game plan but didn't execute
Mattison - we knew we'd need to pick our offense up and didn't do it
JHC. If Connor Cook could was decent MSU would be winning by 30.
It's not talent, it's not home or away, it's not luck, it's not us rebuilding anymore. Sparty is winning because they're just flat out better than us from top to bottom. It's official. MSU is better than Michigan at football. I'm fucking sick.
Dantonio and his staff take lesser players and consistently create vastly superior teams. This is so obvious I don't even think its debatable.
They coach them up very well, but Hoke doesn't have his players.
FUCK THIS SHIT.
5 out of 6 to these fuckers...yeah I think they fucking own the state...this sucks
The o-line is basically nonexistent and the play calling by Borges is idiotic.
And the D has regressed this year and is playing below average today.
We might win a couple more since the Big Ten sucks but we're going to get destroyed by OSU.
Unless the o-line is much much better next year, I don't see any hope in the near future. But Lewan's gone next year, so it'll probably be worse.
easy call missed
Wanna know where the threat is? It's in east Lansing. Out coach us. Out develop. Out physical us. That's where the fucking treat is.
When do we start routing for losses so that we can get a new coaching staff again? Remember when y'all did up rich rod? How's it work, let me know.
I lol at all you people who said State's defense wasn't anywhere near legit
Cook gets hit by THREE guys and BACKS into the end zone. Soft soft soft soft soft...
That was not a TD.
but bad missed calls have led directly to 10 points for Staee. Just saying the 12-6 would be a different game than it is
MSU is about to score and put the game completely out of reach. There was a 2 second flash of Devin standing alone on the sideline. No coaches were near by. Why weren't they trying to provide some in-game guidance? Did this go on all game Has it gone on all season?
You guys have all got to stop panicking and being wussies.
As I read up above, we were only down 7 at the half.
Oh, and Hoke is a great recruiter. And lets face it, that really is all that matters, isn't it?
Jabrill Peppers will consume the sparties with fire from his eyes and bolts of lightning from his arse!
Not if he isn't coached properly. You can have all the 5 star talent on planet Earth but if you don't coach them up and put them in positions to be successful, then it's just wasted talent.
We just had a thread a day or so ago stating the Urban Meyer came into a better situation than Hoke because his team had an average of 0.25 stars better than Hoke.
What do you think the difference between Michigan's roster of 3/4* and MSU's roster of 2/3*?
Hell, I guess that really doesn't matter when its Michigan fergodsake.
You're fucking high or something. And recruits still need to be coached
I just hope we don't talk intangibles like toughness, physicality, and Michigan Men. I hope we discuss playcalling, scheme, coaching, and execution. Why isn't it working and what is Hoke going to do about it? It's time for someone to get called out. Bielema fired his o-line coach mid-season.
Who HAVEN'T they made look like a Super Bowl winning, Hall Of Fame quarterback?
THREE guys hit him outside of the two yard line and he dragged them into the endzone anyways.
State wants this game more and is playing harder, smarter and better than we are.
Denard says: "The game is OVA."
The worst coaching staff at Michigan...We are soft....
Hey, at least we've got basketball and hockey, am I right???
suck it up and put up a fight the rest of the way.... most of your fans have abondoned you, don't abandon each other
Ok, can Devin be Denard? With Denard, even in a game like this there was hope. Devin not so much.
Well, time to get obliterated. I think we just might break the blog tonight.
Seriously. This team is worse every year,. This team will lose at Iowa and at Northwestern. And OSU will be Hoke's first home loss.
Anyone want to go to Yost tonight?
Maybe our basketball team will beat sparty... they don't need as much physicalness so they'll be OK
we still have a chance to get back in this game...NEXT DRIVE!!!
