“On the offense last year, they had great spacing. That’s what I remember. Great spacing, great shooters, like Nik Stauskas, who’s not there right now. But they always have someone to fill the roles. They have a cutting offense, kind of hard to guard.”

That was especially endearing. Rather than fix things, Dave will probably work on finally beating Hollis in golf, because it really is all about Dave.

He really is a freak athlete, but that only gets you so far in big boy football. He has an explosive first step, but he doesn't use his hands well and bogs down/gives up after his first move is stopped. Not a lot of secondary moves/counters to what the lineman are doing to stop him. Contain has been and still is an issue.

I don't normally log on and pos or neg, but for M hockey updates I'll make an exception. We need mooooaaaar updates!

Just to pay respect to the Great Blood Donor (He gave, just not his). Your handle is tremendous, sir.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Make it slow and painful||
Dogging a former player is bad enough, but then trashing his coaching without providing any explaination for a lack of faith in his abilities to teach young athletes is beyond the pale. Even if Howard doesn't read this board, showing a modicum of respect is the expected standard.

The wind is always hard to judge, but a big gust is all it takes to turn "routine" into a tragedy. Those 19 were elite. For them to all get flashed over means something freakish happened. God bless all my brothers and sisters who place themselves in the path of danger. Two in, two out, and be safe.

You get free usage for life. I was chuckling to myself as I scrolled down the page waiting for it. "Who's got the bomb? Terrell's got the bomb!"

Great news about the team, and even better news that they have created their own following here. How many sports sites have a dedicated group of softball junkies?

How can you say that without adding a picture or a link so that the unwashed masses can also bask in her glory? Also, great call. She's ridiculous.

Unless I'm mistaken.

They see you hating.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||UCONN loves hip hop?||
Are these in response to the popular Thriftshop song? "What you know about rocking the wolf on your noggin?" My daughter is getting a time out for my knowing a line from that song.

Remarkably close to Beaver Lick, Sugartit, and the Big Bone Lick! Yes, I did plan a vacation around that.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Marrying athletes has drawbacks||
They never hesitate to call you out when you try to show off your prowess in their sport. Also, their b.s. meter is usually excellent and "no, dear, I still don't think you can hit me" will be uttered. My wife having a better batting average WHILE PREGNANT never comes up during coed softball. Ever. Good luck with that.

He would have been a huge pickup. We were the favorite for awhile. I think he was in Hart's class.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||That has to be great||
I've been dreaming of taking my babies out since they were born. The wife threw me some apprehensive looks when they got shotguns on their first birthdays, but watching them gut their pumpkin deer every year makes her laugh. I bet watching your child harvest one is one of those teary eyed, chest thumping moments we all live for. Congratulations.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||I bought a crossbow||
Two shoulder surgeries convinced me to buy a Parker Tomahawk. After watching my neighbor show me how to earn a scar and seven stitches, I learned to be accurate while keeping my thumb as low as possible. Yes, he was drunk and high, how did you know? The crossbow scope is accurate to 60 yards, and that covers my food plots nicely. Two eight points are routinely on my plots and pond, so this should be an interesting opener.

Toddlers trump cats for sheer mayhem any day of the week. You, sir, win the internets for the day. I've never owned a cat, but there is no way a dozen furballs could equal what my little one can do with a roll and that evil little grin.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||I think it also depends on how many prior games that day.||
Look at a Gus Macker tournament for decent amounts of data. When my teams sobered up on day two (usually after an early morning loss), we had a long road to hoe just to get to the finals. There were more games to play than a softball regional, but it the data would still be comparable. We were never eliminated in the finals no matter which bracket we came out of, but that was a pretty good team. I'd have to argue that relatively even teams should see the better rested team win at least 85% of the time.
**Edit- This was supposed to be a reply much further up. Kids are not conducive to mgoblogging.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Tiny Jebus and TJ||
Tiny Jebus came in when all hope was lost and won his spurs. I can't add much more to the exceptional commentary above on him. For any detractors to his game, I'd like to point out that the North Dakota team he shut out was likely the best college team since our 2007 squad. Kid didn't just win the game, he turned water bottles into wine growlers. He is my #1 pick.
TJ was one of the sickest stick handlers I've ever seen. He was the second coming of Comrie when Mike was a once in a decade type of player. TJ had the swagger and aura that made other teams fear him. His likenesses all seem to skate at Miami now. He was so good Brian referred to Treais(sp?) as a poor man's version of him. TJ is my #2.
How can you go wrong with any of these guys?
|2 years 24 weeks ago||Magnus||
Magnus isn't big on superfluous praise. He calls a kid what he is and doesn't get all slobbery on someone unless that kid is a bonafide stud. I read about a commit on this site and then run, not walk, my happy butt over to his site to see what he has to say. Combining the two gives me a pretty good read on who we are bringing in and what their strengths and weaknesses are.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||I think you are missing something||
It just doesn't feel right seeing the word "mustache" when it isn't following "tremendous" or "glorious". Otherwise, solid, solid post.

|2 years 45 weeks ago||Any word on J. P. Holtz?||
He's a highly rated TE that just decommitted from PSU. I thought I read he was visiting soon.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||If anyone knows how he feels||
It would have to be you. It would be very interesting to see your take on this in another diary. That, and I now drink a Molson Canadians every time you post something just to get a better read on your perspective.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||Or maybe you could follow the links from this page||
That way, Brian and Mgoblog get some love/credit from the ad agencies for directing people there. This is a great site that most of us spend a lot of time on. The best part is that it is free. The ads help keep it that way. If you buy the book through Barnes and Noble, but got to their site by using a link from Mgoblog, he still gets the credit.

Not challenging you, I just had not heard this yet. Link? Have A Seat Over There: Yuri Wright?
|3 years 6 days ago||Awfully hard to riot when you are||
hi-fiving your brah. It looked like the players/fans were going ape over injuring Denard. The only way they riot is if someone put a re-run of Jersey Shore on the jumbo-tron.
|3 years 6 days ago||Great post. Look at our recruiting||
The OL we are recruiting are maulers. Kalis and Mags are the kind of OL who move people. Braden is a huge kid with potential. Pipkins is a big, strong, nasty dude who plays low and eats up space. We tried for Sheldon Day, but struck out there. Anyone who isn't excited to see at least one of Wormley, Strobel or Godin slide down to the 3-tech needs to check their pulse. These kids are difference makers.
Hoke is building this team from the lines back. Our LB haul is impressive and all four of them are hitters. The RB for this class is probably looking at this game and thinking about how much we need a big back. Hope you are ready for a large workload, Mr. Dunn. Looking forward to watching you in spring ball after you EE and escape the insanity.
MSU's tackles don't belong on a 5-1 D1 team. That being said, we don't currently have the talent at DE to exploit them. Brown, Strobel, Wormley, Ojemudia and Godin are all going to have an open audition next summer and fall. You want early playing time? Show us a pass rush and you play now.
Blake Countess is going to be a star here. The kid played tough all day and was not afraid to stick his nose in and hit someone. As much as I have appreciated Floyd, his tackling is... Purdue level. I'm embarrassed. His coverage is much improved, granted, but Countess is the better cover corner in my opinion. T-wolf needs to get healthy and shouldn't see the field until after Purdue. Our safety play has been pretty invisible. After the past few years this isn't just an upgrade in play, this is the second coming of Brandent Englemon. Color me excited. The next step would be getting impact players. Mr. Thomas, just how early can you graduate?
