What does lmgtfy mean?
Welp, that's recursion for ya.
you can't do that; it's worse than typing "google" into google!
That's like crossing the steams!
Dr. Egon Spengler: There's something very important I forgot to tell you.
Dr. Peter Venkman: What?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Don't cross the streams.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Why?
Dr. Egon Spengler: It would be bad.
Dr. Peter Venkman: I'm fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, "bad"?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Dr Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Right. That's bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.
to test a the voltmeter's battery?
The voltmeter tells you how many volts the battery is.
I'm sorry, but what does battery mean?
You don't have to take the battery out to measure the voltage. If you put wires on both sides of the battery and connect the voltmeter to the wires, you will get two circuits in parallel; one which powers the voltmeter, and one which is being measured. Circuits in parallel have the same voltage across them, so you would be able to measure the voltage.
Winston Zeddemore: Ray. If someone asks if you are a god, you say, "yes!
Is that like two guys with bad gas sitting next to each other, so their "steam crosses?" I'm out of touch with current college idioms.

I believe it means Seen In Another Place.
If I'm wrong, FML.

Robinson was looking at the biggest hole he had seen all season long. There was nothing between him and the end zone. But as he headed into the cavernous opening, his foot was inadvertently stepped on by a defensive lineman who otherwise was being controlled by Patrick Omameh. Robinson stumbled, fell backwards, recovered, scrambled to the outside, and picked up seven yards.
I remember that play distinctly, but in real time did not pick up just how unlucky we were. Hoping we'll get a video clip on the UFR this week.
Thanks for sharing.
and our defense missed tackles inadvertently.
See, I can play this game too!
Are you saying the MSU player caught Denard with his foot on purpose? Because if he did that's a penalty.
I have been trying to tell my friends this exact same thing all week, but no one wants to hear it. All they say is Robinson got shut down and Michigan got destroyed. That game very easily could have gone the other way.
Might be time for some new friends.
Everything your team did on offense is because you were better on that side of the ball Period. I give full credit to your defense for making the interceptions. On all three a bad defense allows the TD, a mediocre defense breaks up the pass, and a good defense intercepts it. However, if our offense (particularly Denard) were playing like it had in the previous 5 games, you would have been down 14 in the first quarter and it would have been neck-and-neck at the end. I still think you guys would have pulled out a close win, but the blowout was due to our offense.
There can never be too many.
most of the media are jumping off the Michigan and Denard bandwagon faster than you can say "Just like last year".
The MSU game was a deflection and a couple of bad passes away from a completely different outcome.
The Indiana game was a 1-yard fumble away from a blow out.
We are already written off as being frauds and people are predicting 5-7 or 6-6. They say MSU "figured out" Robinson and that is a template for all the rest of the teams - so bye-bye season and bowl. Ha Ha - swoon like last year.
What did they "figure out"? How to get Denard to throw into 3 man coverage and ignore the open guy? Did the 3 guys all yell "I'm OPEN!" to deceive him? Is this what Iowa is practicing right now?
I think there are going to be more teams DENARDED this season if their game plan is based upon 3 Denard picks per game.
...entirely. I would say that I'd hope the coaches are telling DRob that his reads should go like this:
- Number 1 option: wide open = throw; not wide open = check down
- Number 2 option: wide open = throw; not wide open = tuck and run (fast)
Confidence is one thing, but his accuracy is not quite there yet where he can consistently fit balls into tight spaces. Remember, we have four downs to earn a first down. Oh, and tuck and run replaces throw the ball out of bounds or through the end zone - the advice most QBs should follow when the secondary shuts all the routes down.
But all a defense has to do is get 3 gifted interceptions and hope for some luck to slow down Denard. Can't all defenses do that on purpose? Oh, it's not that easy? Didn't think so. Denard will be Denard again and no one will be able to "stop him" without some luck.
I think Denard's accuracy is not too bad when he throws quickly and in rythm. (as with many QBs). He is spotty when he stops, buys time, and then does the "who's open...who's open...who's open... HE'S OPEN" pass.
For example, these two plays against ND did not hurt us, but terrified me for the future.
I couldn't love a player more than I love Denard. He is a passer that left HS 16 mos. ago. He has a lot of growth left. He'll be fine.
The link takes me to the whole game highlights.
I happen to agree with your assessment of Denard, btw.
For some reason the links work if you open them in a new tab or page, but the start time-target doesn't work when you open as a pop-up on this page. Anyway, plays at 4:03 and 10:50.
come simple "answers".
1. MSU shut down Denard - Easy to assume this unless you look at the film.
2. The defense was worn down by MSU - not really. It's just bad.
3. Michigan is a fraud - Jury's still out, by improbable.
End result is that we are not a good as we hoped and not as bad as we feared. Season's not over. Our team has learned and this too shall pass.
i did not get to watch most of the game and have enjoyed seeing/hearing most analysis. i dont mind negative talk about us because those people do not actually take the field for us every saturday! i think we were closer than the score indicated. however, we can all give our own opinion until we are BLUE in the face (which is fun and the reason why most of us post), however to shut people up our boys must perform on the field! when they do to the tune of more wins then we will feel better about anyone who talks about M Football! GO BLUE beat iowa!
So the team will be ok if I have my towel?
I used to view the towels as bad luck... but now I'm not sure. Might as well bring it. It's the pom pons that are bad luck.
Everything will be ok as long as you have your towel.
At least as far as the bug blatter beast trick, out of all our opponents, msu would have been most affected by a towel.
Never forget your towel.
MSU had a game plan, they challenged Denard to beat them throwing the ball, it didn't happen on that day. I do believe that Denard learns from it and will continue to grow.
MGoShoe has it correct. On Denard's second pick, once he pumped the ball he should have tucked and ran with it. I hope the UFR shows the snap shot where that entire side of the field is wide open and no one on Sparty had contiain on him. The only MSU player on that side of the field appeared to be Treadwell and he actually "jumped" on the pump. I believe the coaches will point this moments out to Denard as an opportunity to take advantage of his speed. Tuck and run. Need to learn that balance between when to sit in the pocket and when to run. With Denards special skill sets, yes there are times when running will be an excellent option....
When the game ended my thinking was "they dominated us." After rewatching the Every Snap videos, I revised my take.
Defense: surprisingly solid apart from 2 huge run gaffes and Christian being thrust into action too early by Rogers' injury. Apart from those three plays, very solid.
Offense: picked up good yardage consistently running, had guys open consistently passing. It was just poor execution throwing and catching it. Obviously, make 4 of Denard's throws accurate and maybe we score 31-42.
My opinion now: we were dominated in the sense that a team that makes the 6 biggest plays is going to dominate the game. MSU did that and it's no small thing. It's everything. You have to make big plays. But we were not dominated in the sense that we got beat on the line of scrimmage, or beat schematically.
And for all the "they don't get the rivalary" / "they don't care enough" talk, that's not what I saw. We dominated the first quarter. (No, seriously: http://espn.go.com/ncf/playbyplay?gameId=302820130) But it looked like we were trying too hard at times. And it looked like we played too emotional, which splattered us when things started to go south.
Did their QB overthrow a wide open receiver in another trip?
These were plays that left points on the field. Statistics are often misleading. Anyone who is a football fan knows that.
