I think 30 is a good number. The NBA clock is too quick there isn't enough skill on the floor to get good looks in 16-19 second after crossing mid court. 35 seconds tends to make the game stagnant with a lot of "motion" with no actual attempt to get to the basket.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Disagree||
New coordinators means new systems. Could move team to more spread on offense or from 4-3 to 3-4 on defense. If you are a projected DE in 4-3 scheme but don't think you fit into an outside rusher in a 3-4 that change greatly affects you.

I think you made the point, other teams did it while legal. The fact they have multiple incidents where they were on the wrong side of the rules gives them little to no slack. From spygate, to manipulating injury reports, to deflategate it just shows the "we are above the rules" mentality.

Many former players have said NE manipulates the injury report. From misreporting how or what a player is injured, to making guys "questionable" when they are clearly out (or completely healthy). It may not be "against the letter of the rule" but it is not acting in good faith.

Two ping pong balls, one each for Ghana and USA are placed in a bowl, a second bowl is filled with two ping pong balls numbered 2 and 3 respectively. A FIFA representitive draws a "team" from pot 1 and then a "place" from pot 2. That is how advancing is determined.

In Goal- Junior CJ Motte (brother of Tyler) 2.31 GAA and .925 save percentage. Is playing better lately after a slow start.
Scoring- Sophomore Matt Robertson has goals in 7 straight games. Senior Garrett Thompson leads the team with 20 pts. (9G, 11A). Although Ferris seems to have pretty balanced scoring with 9 players in double digit points through 17 games.
Defense- Senior Scott Czarnowczan (Captain) is an offensive puck moving defenseman who can score (4G, 10A). Junior Jason Binkley is a more physical defenseman who has 15 pts to go along with 31 PIMS.
Recently Ferris has been giving up a lot of shots, but not so much "quality scoring chances" it will be important Michigan gets into scoring areas and creates traffic to disrupt Motte.

Hoke- "I think it is a comination of all 11 guys out there. I think at times we hit on 11 cylinders, at imes it's 10, others it's 9. Seems to be rotating through"

It's more due to how he continues to throw players under the bus, while acting like the OC is doing his job perfectly. People say he can't call out Al, well why can he call out players then? If he's going to put it on the players, throw Al right in there with them.

He seems perfectly fine calling out the players, so why stop there?
|1 year 21 weeks ago||I've lost faith||
After this exchange I have changed my mind, don't think Hoke is the guy moving forward:
Angelique- "Can you put your finger on what's the issue with the offense?"
Hoke- "I think it is a comination of all11 guys out there. I think at times we hit on 11 cylinders, at imes it's 10, others it's 9. Seems to be rotating through"
NOT A SINGLE MENTION OF COACHING? If I was a player on the team I'd be pretty tired of being thrown under the bus just to protect the OC.

I'd say 2014 is Hoke make or break year. We all heard that 4 years is benchmark (insert RR sympathy here) and coming off potential 7-5 season and under .500 in conference record anything less than 9 wins and Hoke might be gone.

The hash marks are a main issue. In the NFL it condenses the field and doesn't allow for a lot of runs to a massive open wide side of the field. It's one reason the read option struggles in NFL.

So UCLA has 3 true freshman on the OL and their offense looks 1000x more prepared and multiple than ours. Can't be youth, Jim Mora staff is COACHING!

Who were the big physical WR's last season that were breaking jam coverage? Don't think anyone would have called last years OL "rock solid" good yes, but far from great. Also have same running back (along with bigger back in Green) as last year.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Poorly worded||
Guess I worded it poorly. I would say 6-3 would be the "filler" teams. Like you said a complete division (32 teams) almost could have been eliminated by not using 5-4 teams.
Finally, good luck on your playoff run, small school playoffs are a lot of fun. D7 Espeically could be interesting with Harbor Beach moving from D8 (Defending State Champs) up to D7 this fall.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Div 9||
Division 9 is 8-man football. I can't exactly tell you when it started but it is for the uber small schools.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||I thought the same thing, I||
I thought the same thing, I assume that the Fed's would become involved if it can be proven that the guns traveled across state lines, or took place when Hernandez was in Massachusetts and Pouncey in Florida. Also seems like all of this caught Miami GM/Owner off guard and they were scrambling in the locker room.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Geographics||
It's simple, cost savings you can't expect a school to travel across state (or down from UP) 2-3 times over a playoff run. The cost of buses, food, hotels (on long trips i.e. Marquette) for 80+ kids and coaches can really hurt schools who already are working on small budgets.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Big difference||
I personally think there is a HUGE difference between "Hometown Pride" and following a local high school team vs following individual minors who are being recruited. I agree it is sketchy for grown adults to follow high school kids twitter/facebook/etc. Going to watch an alma mater or following a school where you live is different.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Agree||
I would like to see 4-5 divisions this would be simply done by making 6-3 the required minimum record. Too many 5-4 teams make the playoffs. I know it's an opportunity for kids to have playoff games but honestly most of the time those teams are matched up with 8-1 or 9-0 teams and get simply hammered.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Defending Champions||
Division 1- Detroit Cass Tech
Division 2- Brother Rice
Division 3- Grand Rapids Christian
Division 4- South Christian
Division 5- Portland
Division 6- Ithaca (51 straight wins, ties National Record)
Division 7- Ishpeming
Division 8- Harbor Beach
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Safety||
I actually would go with the safety, even though in the moment most fans would be freaking out. Hypothetically gain 20-30 yards on the punt that you plan on doing anyway.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Duel- Citizen||
Not to reveal too much personally but US/Canadian citizen and well aware of Quebec's secession talks. I still don't think you can compare Quebec to Germany or Denmark.

Was more referencing the similar paths the two have taken. Werner came to the US for his Senior High School season, much like the expected path of Froholdt. Also, Sagesse is a Canadian kid, much different than European recruit.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||BBrown FSU history?||
Does FSU's history with Bjoern Werner give them any advantage in Froholdt's recruitment?
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Yes 2-1/2 years in which||
Yes 2-1/2 years in which means most of the kids who this staff has recruited are freshman or redshirt freshman. Also scoring 34 in regulation can't really be categorized as a failure.

|1 year 29 weeks ago||Not to knock Porter but||
Not to knock Porter but Buffalo doesn't exactly have enormous talent at any postion. Porter has been beaten out by rookies Grigorenko and Johan Larsson. Hodgson is the only guy with any real NHL experience at centre for Buffalo.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Zach Redmond also||
Also I think the fact Zach Redmond still has a two way contract added to letting White go and Trouba stay. I for one hope Redmond can make it back to the NHL after almost losing his life on the ice last season.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Constructive vs Bashing||
I've seen plenty of comments regarding the need for certain recruits IF the commentor brings solid reasoning and/or statistcs to back their position. (i.e. "why are we bringing X number of smaller receivers in a class when we have Y already on roster with Z number returing). This is much different than the bashing of a recuit saying "this kid's film looks like he doesn't belong in the MAC why would RichRod ever think he could play at Michigan"
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Slight Difference||
In baseball and hockey though the contracts are regulated by either MLB, or NHL (Canadian Junior leagues also monitor junior contracts). If the NCAA had no collective bargining with the players than their would be no checks and balance like MLBPA or NHLPA has over underage signings.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Quick Question||
If you are having high school seniors enter into contracts with agents wouldn't parents need to be involved? Most high school juniors (when recruiting really picks up) are not of legal age. So what measures would be available to protect underage kids and or uninformed parents from business savy agents.

You can use last years team stats because last year 59% of students didn't show up... Those are connected statistics. You had a top 10 team for the majority of the season and students didn't show up.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Different System||
I think the major problem with last years line is similar to what you are seeing this year. Guys who are upperclassmen were recruited for a completely different offense. Their skill set isn't aimed at Hoke's offense. This is why you see guys like Kalis and other young guys getting action early in their career.

At some point I think someone has to step in and make the decision for Jerry Kill to step away from football. I in no way want to sound unsympathetic but at some point enough is enough. For his own safey I hope someone that cares about his health can connect with him and convince him that being a head football coach might not be the best for his long term health.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||WOW||
Collin really talking up the quality of people that make up the Michigan fan base and alumni. I usually don't agree with a lot of his stuff but seems like he understands Michigan Univeristy.

Now that I can get behind, he probably knew by age 16 he was turning pro in one sport or another (most likely baseball where no college would be needed) and simply was your protypical "dumb jock"

Weeden didn't need T. Boone Pickens money, he already had a nice $565,000 signing bonus from the Yankees. Plus his five seasons playing minor league baseball.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Execution vs Ability||
On the contrary I think execution is more on the OC than you are leading on. If Borges is asking guys to execute things outside their skill set than that is squarely on him. It is on any OC to put his guys into the best possible scenario for success.
Personally I think there have been games where Borges has done very well at this (read: Notre Dame) yet other times where it looks as if he isn't giving the offensive guys a chance to execute within their abilities, and therefore has taken the majority of the blame. I guess what I am saying is "you can't ask someone to do something in which they are least likely to be sucessful", and expect 'execution' to carry them.
