Penciled in MSU starting QB this fall Andrew Maxwell sprained his knee in a scrimmage and will possibly miss the spring game. The really ironic part for all you people who were pissed we didnt take a QB in the 2012 class, is the fact that MSU only has one other scholarship QB on the roster Freshman Connor Cook. This is really scary depth as neither of these guys have ever taken meaningful snaps . . . ever! Iknow Sparty isreally high on their chances this year again but man, I didnt realize how thin they are at the most important position on the field.
MSU QB Maxwell hurt
Don't know why, but this made me think of th DP Show today when McLovin actually said "Kurt Cousins reminds me of Tom Brady." I literally got up and took a shit.
Why take a shit standing up?
If Larry David can pee sitting down, why can't we shit standing up?
I think a diagram would help your understanding of why this is a bad idea.
You mean you guys don't poop, while cradling the back? You can use the top to put the magazine you're reading and your juice. AKA the reverse cowgirl
Hey! Whoa! I am a Michigan grad. Please.
I have never pooped in a cooler.
The Michigan Difference.
But have you ever used a toilet as a cooler?
One time my roommate put a Smirnoff Ice in the tank of the toilet and took off the chain. Needless to say, I was down on one knee chugging lukewarm Ice later that night.
Cousins and Brady have in common is they played QB. That's it.
Brady can make throws under pressure, Cousins can absolutely possitively not do this.
Sounds like Maxwell will be stuck driving the getaway car for a while.
This is pretty much why Denard was only in for one series during the spring game. We have "ok-ish" depth at QB and we still fear what might happen if Denard gets hurt.
Also, MSU is counting on their defense to carry them.
wow and they make fun of us for our OL depth...
He got hurt in the spring game, but he should be ready by fall. But he still a 1st time starter.
Oh I c, read it on espn, it said scrimmage, so I thought it was the spring game. I'm sorry please up vote me back. =(
Asking for votes ALWAYS brings negs instead.
This kid had damn well better be ready by the fall. I don't want the East Lansing trash making any excuses after their long-overdue ass-kicking.
Their depth will get better this fall when they get Tyler O'Connor on campus. Will be essentially the same as ours was last year, with a starter, a second string sophomore, and a true fresman.
Doesn't sound too serious, but they definitely want him to get as many snaps with those new receivers as possible. I'll be really interested to watch their passing attack early in the fall.
Or maybe they'll offer a Michigan walk-on QB a scholarship.
We had better keep an eye on Mad Jack Kennedy
Boise State baby!!
MSU losing is worth putting up with Boise fans for a few weeks.
Since msu fans are the most annoying fans on earth.
All six of them?
I hate to say it, but I think Sparty will trounce BSU. BSU were scheduled to graduate 27 players this year, and they aren't a school that can reload. They expect to have as many as eight drafted, and six more who expect to get FA tryouts, for a total of fourteen very good players to replace. Losing Kellen Moore, Doug Martin, and Tyler Shoemaker, who went from walk-on to most TD passes in one season in school history, is going to hurt them a lot.
BSU might have enough to win eight or nine games because they are in the MWC for one more year, but they won't be sneaking up on any BCS teams this year. As much as I would love to see Sparty lose to BSU, I can't see the Broncos having enough "horses" to even make this much of a game.
Sparty may have to reload a bit, too, but they still have some of the good luck that has blessed them the last few years. They have somehow picked the best possible year to play BSU.
Yeah, I believe that BSU may actually be dead last among Div. 1A teams in number of starters returning. And one of those is a kicker who rarely kicked FGs. There is some hope for BSU, as they were able to get the backups some playing time in their many blowout games, but they still have to replace Kellen Moore who went 50-3 in his career.
They may miss Doug Martin too, but DJ Harper has started in the past and is no slouch. Also, former UM recruit Nick Patti has received a lot of spring hype here, and there is talk about him being in the QB mix if he can pick up the complex playbook quickly enough.
They will likely be physically outmanned against MSU, but with only ONE four star recruit on their entire roster last year they managed to manhandle Georgia in their opener. Coach Pete seems to get the most out of his guys, and if he can pull off the big win against MSU then he deserves a lot of credit.
Also, you can tell that Sparty knew that they were lucky to schedule BSU when they did, because the return game at BSU is in 2022. Way to go out on a limb there Sparty.
They can't reload? Here's their record over the last 13 years:
I'm not saying they didn't lose a lot, but they can reload just as well - or better - than anyone in the country. That's seven one-loss seasons in the last ten years, two undefeated seasons, and one four-loss season. It's not like they had Robbie Hummel playing for them for all ten of those seasons, either. Different guys, same results.
He has taken meaningful snaps - against Alabama during their curb-stomping on the day-that-was-forgotten. And don't worry, he's fully capable of surpassing Cousins, who as most would say, was simply a "game manager" type. The real problem is the lack of playmaking receivers since Cunningham and Martin, the dangerous 1-2 punch that was a constraint with Leveon Bell are gone.
I really hope Maxwell fully recovers. He's from the town where I live (Midland) and started at QB all four years at Midland High. A really bright kid and I know he's done the work waiting for his opportunity at MSU.
Nice! I'm actually from Midland myself and went to elementary, middle, and high school with Maxwell. He's always been a class act and I will definitely be rooting for him in 11 out of 12 games. (And he won't be a prick about it like Cousins)
I'm from Midland as well. Nice
family and I hope he's OK. Obviously I hope Michigan wins, but I hope his knee recovers.
QB was going to be one question for MSU.
WR/TE the other big questions.
Thankfully they have a surprisingly decent OL coming back and 3 capable TBs.
Predicted a more run-centric MSU anyway in 2012.
Why is that ironic?
Situational irony and the reversal of expectations: Despite having a fanbase that seems much more preoccupied with quarterback depth, it is revealed that our actual quarterback depth chart is much less perilous than that of our instate rival. Thus reversing expectations.
(Once again, though, Use #1 becomes most prominent.)
Its like rain on your wedding day . . . Like a free ride when you're already date . . .
Don't forget they have the infamously undervauled Tyler O'Connor coming in this fall! They'll be fine....
Prepare to get negbombed for using MSU in your title.
No worries. Maxwell is more skilled and a better athlete than Cousins. It shouldn't affect their B1G/National Championship run.
