great analysis. I Kept hoping Denard would make a big jump a la himself from 2009-2010 or RG III over the course of his career. But in the end, he was who he was. A great athlete and runner but a limited passer with a tendency to make bad decisions and turn the ball over. You live by Denard, you die by Denard. And this year, we lost more of those toss-ups.

Was the problem that he threw the flag? Somebody please explain this to me
|1 year 50 weeks ago||roster mismanagement||
Gardner played great today, but it's too bad we lost the chance to control our destiny in the Legends division because he wasn't available at QB last week. When it comes down to it, the coaches took a huge gamble when they decided to have DG practice exclusively at WR all year. Denard takes ~20 carries/game and is bound to get hurt for a spell during the season. Backup QB becomes a really important position in that kind of offense. The gamble didn't pay off and we might have lost our shot at a Big Ten title because of it. Gotta put that on Hoke, ultimately. I'm not saying we should get rid of the guy or anything, but this was an incidence of roster mismanagement. They corrected their mistake, though, and I'm looking forward to watching DG at QB in the future.

Denard will not put up last season's numbers. Period. Last year we ran an up-tempo, no huddle offense. Add to that a Defense that was liable to give up big plays and the number of possessions per game for the Offense went up considerably. He simply will not approach those statistics again.
So long as we are winning games and Denard is healthy, I am totally ok with this. The great thing about Denard is, he is ok with it too.

is setup by the off-tackle run. You need to establish that running game before that play really works. I hope we can adopt that downhill running mentality. We certainly have nowhere to go but up from the Spring game. Sept. 3rd. CANT WAIT

Any idea if it is possible to stream this online somewhere?

do we fire him?

Don't sound so bad after 15-22

Glenn Steele and Rob Renes. Two guys in a similar mold

|3 years 46 weeks ago||if you DO chalk it up to inexperience||
is there really anything you can do except give these guys more time with their coach? 19 starters +2 specialists returning. If RR can retain his roster, then the execution should get better with time.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||He really doesn't have to bring his problems up, though||
I don't think it's about being self-centered, there was just no reason for him to continue making self-deprecating remarks. The stuff about how the money is nice and his pool is nice and miss Rita likes nice things, that just didn't need to be said.

I appreciate your work, Brian, but IME, It was a little out of line to bring up an unsubstantiated rumor on the radio.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||Question for the informed||
Who was responsible for calling the plays and putting together the offense that put up 41 points on the Gators in the 08 Capital One bowl? After only putting 3 points on the board against OSU, our offense looked wide open in that game and Henne had the game of his life. THAT offense could have kept mallet and manningham (maybe) around and could have helped us avoid the last three years. Maybe.

When I went abroad the two US college brand merchandise I would see the most were Carolina Tarheels and Michigan Wolverines. This is just one example, but I saw this guy, a Malaysian tourist, on the Red Sea on my way to Jordan
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Watching WVU D up Pitt right now||
The men behind their D-Line are stemming and moving, attacking from different positions on every single play. The are ballhawks, too. 3 turnovers with 5 minutes left in the first half. This seems to me to be how you eliminate the "bubbles." At all times, there should be at least 4 men rushing the QB. GERG seemed, in the beginning of the season at least, to be content to drop everyone into a 3-deep zone behind the line. When you have an inexperienced secondary and allow your D-Line to get double teamed, bad results are sure to happen.
I really think the best-case scenario for the D is to get Casteel on board. RR knows him, the staff knows him, and he knows 3-3-5, meaning we wouldn't have to switch schemes drastically again.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||I see it every time we lose||
and it is ridiculous. When things like Wisconsin and Penn State happen, people go straight for the pitchforks. We aren't used to losing, I guess. Perhaps ND wouldn't be better off with Weiss, but their pattern of coaching roulette should be exactly what we try to avoid
|3 years 48 weeks ago||what do the numbers look like without the Indiana game?||
12 drives and 12 TDs, right? That has to skew things.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||Yes, exactly||
if we have an Irish fan saying that other Irish fans were using a similar rationale for running Weiss out of ND, why would this be something we want to emulate? Do we want to be ND, where the entitled, whiny fan base cuts the legs out from under every coach who comes into town and sends them packing after 4 years, resulting in decades of mediocrity?
|3 years 48 weeks ago||this is the key issue||
We are scoring when the game is already out of hand. If we can get out to a fast start we might be able to force offensive mistakes from teams trying to play catch-up. The truth is the Iowa, Wisconsin, and Penn State were much bigger beatings than the final score would indicate

|4 years 1 hour ago||were we watching the same game?||
I can see the boxing analogy because these powerful offenses were certainly trading punches all game long, but I thought both teams looked very good and about as evenly matched as possible. Good news for us because we could clearly play with Iowa last weekend and Wisky would not have gotten past them without the fake punt
