Most of these kids are NOT going pro. If they make their college decision based on something other than academics, they're shooing themselves in the foot and being influenced to do so.

Like I say though, take away money and kids are still gonna choose ASU, and not for the business school.

Not as bad as it seemed. On a couple of PSU runs, they got neither open looks at the rim nor from the 3pt line, but managed to just hit every single 2pt jumper and floater from about 7 feet out. You can't prevent EVERY shot, and most of the time, a team isn't going to shoot 52% on those opportunities like PSU did, more like 40-45, which would've made this a 20-30 pt blowout, instead of 13 pt very very solid win.

The key, as I see it, is that if you map out Nuss' career, you see progression nearly every year, and no BAD offenses. With Borges, you had some truly great years, but they were interspersed with regressing years, and with truly bad years. The argument was that the "bad" years weren't really his fault, being hamstrung by the coach. But now we know that's not true. Brady won't touch the offense.

Here's what I saw on a review of the thread:
You all need to take a freaking breather, folks. Seriously, 2014 is over. Step back from the ledge. Here's the truth of the matter.
1: Fouls were almost even for and against, 17 to 18. That's almost exactly par for the season.
2: In his first Big Ten game, our FRESHMAN PG had a 4 to 1 Assist to TO ratio, pulled down more rebounds than anyone save our C, shot poorly but did anything but hog the ball, and hit 66% on FT's, his only two misses coming in big time pressure. He also had a lights out steal.
3: The Morgan/Horford 2 headed monster was never supposed to play this kind of minutes, so excuse me if I think a 7-for-10, 3-6 FT, 11 Rebound, 2 Steal, 1 Block, 17 point combined performance isn't too shabby for what approximates a single player. I find it hard to believe McGary's overall numbers would've been that much better.
4. Seriously, people? You're going to criticize Stauskus? The guy, who, should he get hurt, you can pretty much wrap the season up and toss it in the trash? He does everything but make breakfast. If he has the occasional miss on an open look a FT or makes a bad foul, well, who would you RATHER have in there?
5: Beilein, the coach who took Zak Novak and Stu Douglass & gang to the NCAA Tourney, who schemed out a way for a bunch of midgets to beat a bunch of California Redwoods, and he doesn't learn?
6: At least get your criticisms straight. In one game, every guy on he team was both awesome and horrible at everything!

It was called pretty equally both ways for the most part - towards whichever offense. The problem was that it was called too much. Every little thing.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||It was bad||
And looking at the box score, I still can't figure out how we won, except that Stauskas had ice-water at the line, and Irvin could finally shoot. Heck, he was about the only one that could.
I WAS surprised to see that spike only had 5 points and 2 assists. It seemed like he did a lot more. I guess a three from the parking lot will do that.

I don't trust BA's reviews more than simply identifying if a particular beer is BAD. So long as it doesn't rate below a 2.5, I presume it's palatable and I consider it. For instance, Arcadia's Whitsun is one of my favorites, but it only ranks about a 3.5 there.
We usually have 25 or more people for our dinner, so asking for a sample, trying it, and then deciding to order one usually means I'll get my beer just in time for my entree to arrive. Plus I'm not sure if it's tap or bottles.

If Stauskas and LeVert shoot the lights out, we should have an easy season? I never would've guessed it.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||For the record||
I was there, and these are the things I can report:
Lohan will be out a couple of weeks at least. He left for the locker room shortly after going off the ice. He was keeping all of his weight off of his right leg, AND seemed to be favoring his right shoulder a lot. He's not just hurt. He is injured. two teamates had to help him off the ice.
Hyman SHOULD be injured, but is evidently fine. He got nailed by a tech player a few inches bigger htan him right on the corner of the boards at the north end ofthe Michigan bench. If the padding weren't on that coner, he'd have spit his face open. Nasty.
Red made a TON of line changes. I was questioning it, becauseit seemed we had trouble getting anything going offensively with all the changes, but it paid off in OT big time.
Tech is way more talented and skilled than their record indicates. HOWEVA, they didn't do much creation. Their shots came on effort plays to get breakaways or catch a puck in front of the net. They rarely got into an offensive set.
Clare should get some freedom to come up more on O. He won several foot races for pucks or to get into a defensive position, and definitely has speed.
Racine is a little rusty if his pregame practice means anything, but his glove is lightning and he's still your starter when he shakes off the rust.

You actually answered my question! Thanks!
So one year for player development, and no specific cut off date for that development to take off, so long as the development is evident SOMEWHERE in production.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Hmmm...||
I can't argue with that one.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||That's kind of the point||
Although I'm not nearly so negative on him (he single handedly won as many games as he single handedly lost), you just said exactly what I said. He was too good to take off the field (plus we had no other options), but because of the way he was built, as a QB, our offense had to be the DENARD OFFENSE. It takes time to make a paradigm shift from the DENARD OFFENSE to something else. How long?
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah||
I think we all agree they tried it about a game and a half too long. But that makes more sense than assuming our coaches are idiots that have been running the wrong offense all season.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Okay||
That's fair. However, I'm not sure I would agree that taking over mid-season for a player that everyone expected to come back within a week or two (initially. Remember, nobody thought he'd be out through the end of the year.) counts as much, because I don't think they spent much time adapting the offense. They had fewer QB runs, but overall, they still ran it like it was Denard's offense, under the assumption that he was coming back.
Remember, I'm not talking about Gardner improving (which he has, albeit in fits and starts). I'm talking about finding the right formations and playcalls to get the most out of the players you have now.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||And...||
How long does it take to figue out how to best compliment players? How long does it take to figure out what offensive style will be the best for a team for the season. I mean, you can score an instant touchdown with a good hook and ladder. Should a team make that their base play?
|25 weeks 5 days ago||I actually agree||
But since Denard left, do you think it makes sense to give more traditional, I-Form power running an honest go? And since we haven't done it in years, do you think an honest go is half a game, or half a season, or what?
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Let me play parrot||
I'm just going to say the same things everyone else has said in this thread, but here it is:
If you think that the rush (biggest point of contention last season) hasn't improved this season, look at the numbers.
If you think the offense is worse this season than last season, look at the numbers.
If you think this TEAM is worse this season than last season, look at the numbers.
If you think that some of the game plans, especially offensive, have been questionable, you're entitled to that. The sure are infuriating sometimes.
If you think that some close wins against obviously inferior teams and a reak type loss in Happy Valley are a HUGE PROBLEM, look at the entire history of college football.
If you thinki bitching and moaning because your favorite team is 6-1 in a way that displeases you makes you look cool, look at yourself.
I swear to god, half the fanbase is like Minny fans when Glen Mason was coach. "Sure, we're winning, but not how I WANT us to win! GRRR!!! I AM ANGAR!!!"
Truly, why are you on this site if you aren't looking at the numbers? There are other sites where you can bitch and moan about things you don't understand. Here, our generous authors are numbers acolytes. It is what they believe and know. It's what we readers believe and know. They don't lie.
|25 weeks 6 days ago||It's rarely luck||
RPS is a way of controlling player point values.
If a D has been blitzing all day, you don't wanna give a reciever +3 every time a screen goes for 30 yards.An RPS call in this case demonstrates that the O Coordinator recognized that a blitz was likely and called the appropriate play to make them pay for their blitzing.
Occasoinally, especially early, an RPS can be luck if a team is doing something they haven't shown a lot of in the past. If a team enters a game playing a very soft D that they've not run before, kind of like our ND defense was, the O coordinator might get a "luck" RPS for an early short field throw. However, as the D keeps doing that, more and more of those plays can be attributed to the coordinator putting the offense in the right position to take advantage.
|25 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah||
That sounds like a herniated disk or something. Those things never quite go away. Hopefully, it's muscle spasms or something instead.
|25 weeks 6 days ago||Rock Paper Scissors||
An RPS +1 Means a play was just the right call by the O or D coordinator to take advantage of the opposing team's O or D. A +2 or +3 means they did that really well.
An RPS -1 -2 or -3 means M's coaches made a terrible play call that was just what the opposing coordinator wanted them to do.
|25 weeks 6 days ago||Question||
Is the arm rotation just for balance/momentum, or has he actually trained his legs to respond somewhat to signals directing his arms to move?
|26 weeks 15 hours ago||Traps||
He has them.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||Congrats||
Just getting there and starting is a big accomplishment. Finishing at all is doubly challenging! You can't win 'em all.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Curses||
I owe you one!
|28 weeks 1 day ago||The next person to suggest||
The next person to suggest that fans of a team shouldn't own/wear team jersies is getting smacked upside the head.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Good deal Timmy!||
Seems like good starts for THJ and Trey (Trey especially considering his Summer League issues). Good to see Sims finally getting some NBA run as well.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Eh...||
Lose the attendance record because a game is played in a place that's not even a sports arena? Fine, whatever.
Secondly, this is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. You won't even be able to see any of the players!
|28 weeks 1 day ago||No choice||
It's interesting you would say that. I never said or implied that we NEEDED another presence at RB. Just that it would be interesting to see and I hated wasting his athleticism. When you say "no choice", it sounds like you're very dissatisfied with the talent we have at RB now. If you really are dissatisfied with it, why would you not want to try other bodies there?
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Bah!||
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Oh yes||
DB is his position, for sure. But with his RS burned, it just seems sad to leave that athleticism off the field.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Specifically||
I didn't recommend that it SHOULD happen. Simply asking what people thought. It probably would be a bad idea. At the same time, I dare you, DARE you to watch Jibreel Peppers highlights and not have "Instant Charles Woodson" flash in your brain. And he's a long way till he's even a freshman yet.
I would think you would know me well enough to know that I'm not screaming, "STAHR RANKERNS! PURT HIRM IN THUR GERM!"
|28 weeks 2 days ago||He does?||
I don't think two TERRIBLY SURPRISING REVERSES per game really qualify as a few carries.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||You just know||
If it was a 55-3 win, they'd all say, "Well, Minny sucks hard, so that doesn't prove anything." Iowa's play against MSU today shows that they're a damn good (for Iowa) team, and Minny was 4-1 with some solid wins. This was an EXCELLENT 29 point win.
Georgia just needed OT to beat Tennessee! Georgia is #6 and Tennessee sucks worse than Minny by far.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||There you go||
8 Posessions - 5 TD's. Fantastic.
13 of 17 passes were at least catchable. 14, really. That one was over Dileo's head, but he had two hands on it. Your WR's need to make plays. QB's are rearely going to be dead on for every throw.
When we weren't running into a stacked box, we got penetration and holes to run through.
Remove the sack, the bad snap fumble and the rushes from the 4th quarter clock kill drive starting at 7 minutes, and suddenly we rushed for 4.6 YPC. I'll take it up down left and right.

I try to try as many craft beers as I can, and I really enjoy most of them. But if you have the following beers, you have everything you ever need:
Goose Island 312
Bell's Two Hearted
That's it. Drink and be merry.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||I wonder||
Have we had a QB since that could see and make that little toss at the :55 second mark? Of course, Devin would just run for it (correctly). The caverns that were opening up in the middle on pass plays were hilarious.
Also, not this game, of course, I can't think about Navarre vs. Minny without thinking about the Transcontinental in 2003. Best Transcontinental ever.
|30 weeks 4 hours ago||Correct||
But many people have a problem with that, because they view it as a sort of servitude. Students sign an agreement to plaqy a sport in return for their scholarship that the university CLAIMS as a certian value, but in actuallity costs them much less than that. Most people feel that the athletes should be earning something more presently tangible, and that's what this would fix without making them actual pros.
If they're smart, they'll use it to pay their tuition and it will work out exactly the same. If, however, they choose to do otherwise, they would be able to. (Not to mention this would encourage talent to stay closer to home, thereby leveling the playing field, because now, in-state tuition discounts would come into play.)
|30 weeks 10 hours ago||Many will be sad||
And yet, this is the way it should be. Things like this game should never have existed. Then we wouldn't be in the current crap house we're in.
|30 weeks 15 hours ago||Why not?||
Three is easy. They're working under the coaching staff, and they're not displacing anybody.
Four is harder, but colleges have been trying to convince us for years that they don't get an advantage from the sports. What's new about that?
As for six, I know we had paid interns, so I'm not sure what's up with that.
