doesn't help that your M looks green
How did I get negged 3,000+ points? I mean I shouldn't have been so hard on the guy but I just came out of the Rucker thread.
Dennis you blundered
Apparently so. I was going to cash all those points in some day and fly to Mongolia. Damn those thieving mods.
Don't fret, you can still get to Mongolia, it is truly beautiful this time of year, but beware of the thieving hordes.
I am not going to waste my evening. I am on a one man mission to get you back up into triple digits, life has meaning again!!
they're a real bitch aren't they?
at least you didn't get the 10,000 point hammer!
I've been following this blog for a while but just now got up the nerve to post a comment. Sorry Dr. Steve. That one deserves every bit of negativity its getting. Even if I had points to be able to post, I wouldnt do anything that stupid. It almost doesnt even deserve a response. Just dumb.
questions end in question marks. Dr. Steve you have no question marks. Trollish? See how I did that?
aka Dr. Lou?
This board can be cruel. Maybe this OP had a few (many) facts wrong, but some of these response posts are a much larger embarrassment. Yes, GERG had made some mistakes. We can all move on with our lives.
Yes, this place frowns upon people who start new threads to post nonsense
more fingers than MGoPoints.
Harsh crowd tonight. (edit: wait, who the hell am I kidding? It's always like that here, that's what makes MGoBoard awesome)
Dr. Steve, you would do well to remember that correlation does not imply causation. There are a number of other factors to consider with our defense and believe me, they are plentiful. Anecdotal evidence and statistics are pointing vaguely towards your conclusion and whispering suggestively, but that's all to what it really boils down: foggy, unsupported conclusions.
Our defense is young. As a byproduct of this, they are inexperienced. You would do well to study the number of upperclassmen remaining in our defensive secondary and ask some questions like, "How many true freshman are all-stars the moment they hit the field in college?" This is a problem Coach Rodriguez is actively working on, but there's no instant fix. It requires time and just as importantly, patience.
Coach Shafer is a good defensive coordinator - there's no disputing that. He gets shit done. But what we don't know as fans (and this is important) is whether he was a good match for the rest of the coaching staff. I don't know what kind of work you do, but I'm a programmer. We have people that do specific types of coding, and we all work on a team. If one personality on the team doesn't fit with the rest of the team, it really bogs down a project - and can even lead to its complete failure. I would venture a guess at this being the real issue with Coach Shafer, but it's just that - a guess.
Where's the trust?
Doc, there have been some state trolls thats got us a little lathered up, please don't be offended.
Now back to your normal programing.
I talked to that same guy!!! He told me that GERG not only had the worst defenses every year for all 27 years he was in the SWC, but he also killed a guy. Possibly with a trident. And then there was the mystery of the higher than national average occurence of yeast infections during his tenure. Of course they were downriver from that bread factory...
You know, I heard that too. Must be true, since we have confirmation from two people that GERG had the worst defenses ever in SWC history, killed a man (possibly with a three-pronged weapon once wielded by Posseidon), and also lead to increased vaginal discomfort in women.
In all honesty, I didn't believe the guy for a second. Besides, I don't think its really fair to speculate on what kind of condition a man leaves a vajayjay in without any substantive evidence. I mean, srsly. I refuse to believe that a man with hair like GERG's has ever left a woman's mommy parts anything but satisfied. Say what you want about his defenses, but I'll just continue to believe that he is a kind and generous lover.
Clearly the board is a little punchy today, because this thread felt a lot like this scene, with Dr. Steve as the guard.
Too bad on this one Doc. Looks like you actually had some points when you started. Did your buddy mention GERG coaching a Super Bowl winning Denver D?
Robinson's tenure as defensive coordinator with the Denver Broncos occurred during their Super Bowl (XXXII & XXXIII) seasons in 1997 and 1998.Robinson's Bronco defense played superbly during the 1998 playoff run. The Broncos defense held the Miami Dolphins scoreless in the divisional playoffs, allowed only a touchdown as a result of a fumble on the one yard line against the New York Jets in the AFC Championship Game, and then allowed a single touchdown to the Atlanta Falcons in the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl after the outcome was secure.
after reading this Wikipedia entry about Gerg one can only come to the conclusion that he really must suck at defensive co-ordinatin'. Give the guy a break already...Dr. Suess, er Steve.
Dr. Steve is not a real doctor, but he did stay at a Holiday Inn last night
and he ate at Zingerman's
He's not a real doctor... He got his Masters degree, in Sci-ence!!!!
I hadn't thought of Dr. Science and Ian Shoales and Duck's Breath Mystery Theater in forever. A hearty +1.
As in Misdemeanor U? You are one clever fellow. Now hurry along home to tRCBM.
And remember when Robinson was the co-ordinator at Chicago U when they were in the B10? Yost used to run roughshod all over those defenses....
a defensive coordinator?
Signing it sloppily, Dr. STeve at the bottom was very doctor-ish.
Come on guys. The guy is a grandfather who probably has never posted on this board before, and probably checks it out once a month. It's one thing if he were a 19 year old who has been blogging his whole life -- but surely we can cut some slack to the grandfathers out there, who have better things to do than check blogs all day like we do to be up on the ins and outs of the M defense.
Asking people to be courteous might be asking too much -- but at least some consideration?
