But pre-game, Da'Shawn Hand went into the first row of the stands through the band entrance to take a picture with a kid who had a sign that said:
"Te'o Still Snapchats Lenay"
With letters capitalized and such to spell ESPN. Obviously nothing big, but cool to see him so excited by the sign and the fans,
|2 years 4 weeks ago||Awful||
I was one of the ones who waited in line all day. I got to the stadium at 11 AM, waited for 5 hours outside the stadium until 4 PM. Then I waited another hour in the chutes waiting to enter the stadium. The waiting obviously wasn't fun, but I had no issues with it, I knew what I was getting into, so I have no complaints about that.
Once it hit 5 though, and they started letting people into the stadium, it was a fucking shit show.
Basically they now give every student in the first 22 rows a ticket saying what section and row they're in, and they have to show it to event staff to get back to their seat if they leave it at any point.
Instead of giving these out during the hour we were waiting in the chutes so the people who were waiting the longest and at the front got the first rows, they gave them out at the seats themselves.
So once they started letting people into the stadium, it became a madhouse and everyone just started sprinting towards their sections. It was a fucking mess, and we're lucky no one got trammpled and hurt. It also made it so people who got there at 7AM ended up in like the 5th row while people who got there at noon got the 1st. That was fucking bullshit and it needs to be changed,
On a seperate note, like I said I got there at 11, and I'm also greek life, so a big fuck you to all the anti-greek assholes out there.

|2 years 5 weeks ago||For me||
1) OSU- Their fan base is the biggest group of apologists I've ever seen. Any Buckeye player is the greatest at their position, Urban Meyer is the best coach, they are the best team, and anyone who disagrees works for "ESPiN" and hates OSU. They are all convinced they're going to go 14-0 this year and I can't wait to seem them lose and for it not to happen.
2) MSU- Obvious reasons. One good 3 year stretch has them convinced they can compete with anyone, which they can't.
3) ND- Another rival fan base, I actually respect them the most of our three rivals. When we beat them, I feel nothing towards them, and couldn't care less about how they do. But when we lose, and years like last year happen, I just need to see them lose to prevent the "ND is Back" group from gaining steam.
4) Alabama- Someone needs to knock them off their high horse, although until someone does they are allowed to be up there.
5) Oklahoma- Never had anything but bad experiences with their fans. One of the cockiest groups I've ever seen. Of course it's a small, inconsequential sample size, but it's made me not a fan.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Who||
Who the fuck cares who the starter is? Green will see carries against ND. Fitz will see carries. Johnson, assuming he's healthy, will probably see carries. Whichever is having the most success will see the lions share of them. Stop bitching over semantics.

I love when people start goign after grammar on this blog, because it means they can't go after the content of the post.
When did I ever say that my comment was eye-opening or insightful? I never said that, nor did I intend for it to be. I know I am firmly in the minority, that's what I wanted my comment to put forward, so I guess it succeeded.
And to take this statement;
"No one ever said that. Stop trying to act all high and mighty because it doesn't bother you. "
And turn it into;
"he is saying is that just because your opinion is the exception to the rule does not make it insightful and eye-opening."
Is a pretty damn big, and just plain dumb, leap to make. If he wanted to say what you're implying, he would have. What he meant to say, and did say, was no one ever said that, which was just wrong.
Also, I appreciate the douchey overtone to your post as well. Just because you disagree with me and can act like a dick when responding to my post doesn't make you right, it makes you an asshole.
And I know, get off your lawn.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Really?||
Really? No one ever said all that? Because multiple people have complained in this thread about not liking the changes because they're not used to them and how players can't make their own legacy now. The only thing no one ever said was the stuff about Hoke, but that was clearly an over-exaggeration.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||The||
The belly-aching here is so funny.
"Oh woe is me! A football player changed numbers! Now I'm not used to them being that number! My life is so hard, Brady Hoke should be fired!"
Look, this is a way to not only honor past greats, but also reward players who the coches think deserve it.
I'm sure no one is forcing these players to change numbers, they only do so if they want to. If they want to have their own number their entire career, I'm sure they can. Denard played in two years while Hoke implemented this, but he was still 16 the entire time. Even Kovacs who changed numbers will still thought of as 32, no one will say he's 11 now. It's a small thing, stop whining.

ESPN hasn't given out any 5 stars, and in the past two years the #20 has not been a 5 star, and he's a 4 star to 247 Composite. It really doesn't matter and I think he's a 5 star talent, but just to be that guy.

|2 years 23 weeks ago||So||
So because one they got one pick wrong means they have no "real insight" into any recruiting situation? That seems like a blatant over reaction to me.
Obviously I'm not going to live and die by their word. They will be wrong sometimes, like with Hood and Bunting, and Bars seems like the type of kid who they could potentially be wrong on. But to say they have no real insight is foolish. They obviously don't know 100% where any kid is going until the LOI is signed, but they definitely have a better idea than us as fans.
And Hood was also a very unexpected situation. He said ND was his #1 for the longest time, then said he wanted to stay close to home in NC, and then before giving any indication that that wasn't the case he committed to ND. Now obviously this could happen with Bars as well, where he does something the "experts" don't expect, but that seems to be the exception and not the rule.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Post by 247 Michigan||
Post by 247's Clint Brewster, one of the Michigan writers for the site, when asked what he feels about his pick of Bars to Michigan:
"Yeah I still feel confident but not quite as much as I did before. I know Barton Simmons has a great relationship with Bars and he still has him going to Michigan"
All the people who are saying that Bars is an ND lean are basing it off the fact that ND fans have said supposedly the dad wants him to go to ND and the only reasons his brother's didn't is because they didn't get offered. That may be true, and Bars may go to ND, but I've yet to see anything from any expert or writer saying Bars to ND.

Damien Harris, RB out of KY, has been very interested in Michigan, supposed to be a top 5 overall player talent, and we're the presumed favorites at this point.

|2 years 23 weeks ago||Fucking||
|2 years 24 weeks ago||No shit||
No shit it's depending on what group you poll. That's why I said students. The group I am talking about being polled in students. My point was specifically about students. The polls on Facebook I've seen are all student responses. The poll you posted is open to the public, majority non students, so of course the results are different.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||I agree||
I agree with all of that, but keep in mind we had a pretty bad home schedule this year, especially to the average fan. We only had one big time game, MSU.
Northwestern and Air Force were great games, but to the average fan, a non-MGoBlog reading, football obssessed, Michigan die hard, Northwestern and Air Force had no big name appeal.
I'm only saying this because for a lot of these kids, if you tell them that we're playing Northwestern the next day, they'll have no problem missing the beginning of the game because they think it's going to be a boring game and if they miss the beginning to drink they won't miss much.
If you give us this year's home schedule, however, with ND, OSU, and Nebraska, I doubt we see nearly the attendance issue. I'm still for the change, but I do think last year was an anomally with the awful home schedule.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||My take||
My Take on the situation;
Keep in mind that it's not just the "drunk sorority" student who doesn't like this change. A vast majority of students who have been answering polls on Facebook have said they hate it, Brian acknowleged as much in his front page post.
So while everyone here likes to bash the kids who are drinking, the so called "drunk sorority girl", for hating this policy, every student does basically.
Whether kids are pregaming or just sitting in their dorm room, most students would rather have a guaranteed seat at a certain spot that they can get whether they leave at 11:15 or 11:45. Now they have no idea where they'll sit before hand, and most people would rather do whatever they want than have to stand in line for 30-45 minutes before they normally would and still not be guaranteed a good seat.
That being said, as a current student and someone in Greek Life, I'm in favor of the change. I'm willing to leave 30 minutes ealier to get a better seat, I'll just start pregamming 30 minutes earlier. I think if you're willing to wait in line for an extra 30 minutes, you should get a better seat. I'm also fine with reducing the size of the student section. But just keep in mind, this isn't just Greek life who doesn't like this change, most students don't.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||I don't||
I don't know much about Knox, but from the little I've gathered, I don't think we'll have a great shot.
He originally wanted to be a package deal with a HS teammate of his who is remaining committed to Texas despite Knox decommitting, and Knox has since announced a top 3 of OSU, Miami, and UCLA. I don't think we'll be a big player, but who knows, it's still early on.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||1. McGary||
He was our best player in the tournament, and while some of that was because of Burke, he showed the ability to score on his own as well by crashing the boards or shooting a 15 footer or the occasional drive. And while Walton isn't as good a scorer as Burke, I do think as a true passing PG the drop is not as significant. I think McGary could be an All-American this year.
2. Go by situation
Obviously with no Burke and Hardaway, who were probably the first two options last year, there's no clear cut answer. So I say go by committee. Until someone steps up as the last minute guy, go by where we have the biggest advantage. If they're a poor perimeter defensive team, go with Stauskas. If we have the size advantage down low, go McGary, etc.
This one is a toss up to me. I think there will be a pretty even split of minutes, so starter doesn't really matter, but if I have to choose, I'll say Walton overtakes Spike by this point.
He started pretty much the entire year this year, and while at moments he struggled, he has an entire offseason to get better with Beilein now and grow. I do think both start eventually, but more because I think we shy away from the 2-big system and go with 3 guards again.
As I said, All-American potential, I think he becomes the best player and leading scorer next year.

As someone from NJ, 10 hour drive from NJ to Michigan is about right. A little on the quick side, but accurate.
Also keep on mind, Peppers, who is from NJ, is not considering VT. His top two are us and Stanford. Hand, from VA, has a top two of us and VT. And both these top two's are assumed based on what people have been saying, not the kid's official top two's.

If you want to play that game...
Michigan is 4-6 in their last 10 bowl games.
We have won the B1G twice in that span.
Also Va Tech has won the ACC 4 times in that span.
You can't play that game. It's not all about recent success, or else we would not be recruiting at the level we are. It's about coaching staff, and Hand's favorite coach is Bud Foster. It's about proximity to home, and Hand is from Virginia. It's about so many other things, saying "We're Michigan Fergodsakes", while a great rally call, is a cop out and just dumb to say in this instance.

*All recruit data according to rivals, current numbers based on OSU's roster on their official website.
OSU currently has 15 OL on their roster, which doesn't include the two incoming true freshman, so it's really 17. Of those 17, 5 are seniors, with one being a walkon. There are an additional 3 walkons of the remaining 12 players.
So next year, OSU will have 9 scholarship OL returning, and only one of those will have starting experience.
Since 2009, OSU has signed 17 OL. Of those 17, 5 are no longer listed on the roster as OL, meaning they have either switched positions or left the program.
In the same time, Michigan has signed 16 (technically 17 but one is the LS Sypniewski) OL. Of those, 3 have left the program or are no longer OL.
So in the big picture both teams picture looks bleak-ish, but Michigan has taken significantly more OL in the past 2 years and also at a higher quality.

Hell, look at the story of Brian Banks. He's already forgived the lady that falsely accused him of rape. That's something significantly worse than what Webber ever did, and what the woman did to Banks directly effected him, what Webber did, no matter how much we love Michigan, really didn't effect the fan's lives at all.

2 years ago, during the basketball season. Football had obviously been disappointing and this was the Darius Morris year for basketball where we were on the buble. I was looking for any coverage I could of Michigan basketball to drown out the sorrows of football. I was on ESPN's CBB blog right before the home MSU game and saw this site linked in the side bar. Came here, have been hooked ever since.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Because||
Because at times our defense is that bad
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Very nice to see||
Very nice to see this all in one spot. We can't get the 1 seed no matter what, but it seems like our most realistic shot at the 2 is for MSU to beat Wisco and Illinois to beat OSU, with us beating Indiana obviously. I think MSU will win tonight, so asuming we beat Indiana, it all comes down to Illinois upsetting OSU @ OSU. Possible, but I wouldn't bet on it.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||I agree||
I agree about the overall #1, but I do think 3-1 gets us a 1, or at least a very good shot. That would include a win over Indiana, plus most likely a win over MSU/OSU/Wisconsin as well. And since our championship game is so late on Sunday, it's very possible the committee doesn't even consider the outcome in seeding, they've done it in the past.
Also, consider MSU last year. They were a 1 seed last year with 7 losses, including losing their last 2 B1G games, and having just lost Dawson to injury. I think us with 6 losses would be very comprable to them last year, with a weaker field of 1 seeds to boot.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||I wouldn't say win it||
If we beat Indiana and win two games and get to the finals of the BTT, I think we could get it regardless, espcially if some of the other potential 1's lose early in their tournaments.

The second one I hate. Basically stole all the clips from the first video with a track that's much too overused.
Regardless, I am hyped, Go Blue, Beat Ohio.

Try to come off a little more condescending next time, and the maybe people will be more receptive.

Clown Question Bro
|2 years 38 weeks ago||Sure||
We don't have the best offensive big men, so that could hurt us, but not many teams have dominant big men in college nowadays, and I think the trio of Morgan, McGary and Horford is a very good trio to have. Obviously not as good as Zeller or Plumlee, but better than most. Also, everyone always says guard play wins in the tourney, if you have a guard who can take over like Kemba Walker did a few years ago, you can go far. And we definitely have that in Burke.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||One of the||
One of the shittiest weeks for Notre Dame in a while continues. I am enjoying it.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||This is||
This is why this team is so great. Played at times a pretty crappy first half. Burke and Stauskas were non factors for a while. Some bad defense. Morgan in foul trouble. Iowa hitting a lot of shots. And we're still up 11.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Better get it right||
Tom hates it when you mess up his name
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Yeah||
He's right guys. I mean a thread about a Michigan State Bowl Game? It's not like we do that for every bowl game that's played. We MUST be obsessed.
The thread about Narduzzi really seals it though. I mean, it's not like we also posted about Soup Campbell at Iowa getting fired and Chris Beatty at Illinois too right? It's not that we just want to discuss a potential major coaching change that would have an arguably top 2 D Coordinator in the B1G leaving the B1G, right? No, it must be our inferiority complex.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Maybe Last Year||
This year Michigan has attempted 297 3's out of 818 total shots, or 36% of the shots. That's higher than the average team, but not by much, and down significantly down from the 44% from last year.
Illinois on the other hand, has 384 attempted 3's out of 899 shots, or a 43% clip. Significantly higher than our clip this year, basically our team from last year. Illinois also shoots 37% from three compared to our 42%, so we're more efficient than them this year, and our team last year.
So not really. Try again later.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Yeah||
Yeah I did. The game win was obviously a good win for Illinois, but at the same time that game said more to me about OSU than Illinois.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||They||
They mentioned it during half time of the OSU Illinois game, it seems true.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Still||
Still Indiana. Illinois beat Ohio State handily, yes, but their offense wasn't that impressive and they rely too much on the three. They have a bad loss to Purdue already as well. I think we can handle them.

If Bell leaves, and it seems like he probably will, that offense will be putrid next year. They were a ranked around 109 this year and now they're losing their top two offensive threats. Rough.

And Purdue and Northwestern. Purdue is god awful, worse than either PSU or Nebraska and minus Crawford Northwestern is down there too

Cinci wins the first game against Pitt 70-61, which is fairly disappointing. Oh well, time for Minni vs State. Go Gophers!
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Wow||
This Pitt Cinci game has just been ugly. Pitt is up 34-26 at the half, but it's just been a foul fest. Go Pitt though, make our win over them look even better.

This is why we can't have nice things
|2 years 40 weeks ago||I'm a nitpicker||
Two major gripes:
1)Defense. Started off very poorly but been much better second part of this half.
2)3 point shooting. Not a great percentage, and if you're going to shoot 14 in a half, Stauskas has to have a couple

|2 years 42 weeks ago||I||
I blame Al Borges
|2 years 42 weeks ago||To the OP||
I don't know how "sincere" Hagerup's apology really is. With Floyd, this was his first time being suspended (unless there's an event that's slipping my mind), it would have been his last game as a Wolverine, and it would have been against his home town team. The language of his apology and just all the extenuating circumstances don't make me doubt the sincerity of his apology.
With Hagerup, not so much. If he was so sincere, he wouldn't have gotten suspended 3 times for the same thing and would have stopped by now. Maybe this is really the last time, or maybe it's just him pgyy-backing off of Floyd's apology to save face. I obviously don't know which for sure, but if I had to guess, I'd guess the latter.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||
This is me reading way too much into a 17 year old kids twitter, just for the funsies:
This report comes out saying he won't visit, and he's eliminated us.
He tweets 5 hours ago that he will visit us.
His most recent tweet is saying that he's going to wear number #1 next year in college, and he's going to be announcing soon.
That seems innocent enough, but he doesn't wear #1 in high school. Now it's possible he just wants to wear #1 in college, but considering how big of a deal #1 is at Michigan, there could be some connection there.
Now I know you're all saying, "But MichiganMan2424, if this is true, why would he come out and say he's eliminated Michigan? Also, you're an idiot for reading this much into a kid's twitter."
Well the second part is true, but regardless.
We all know WRs can be huge divas. While Treadwell hasn't done anything wrong in his recruiting process, he hasn't helped himself with that diva tag. And what would be more diva then at your announcement, pulling out a Michigan hat of a team you said you eliminated and committing there?
Now I'm not saying I expect this, but in the short time I've followed recruiting, if any prospect were to do this, it'd be Treadwell.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||He||
He doesn't have a choice, early decision is binding, he has to go to Northwestern.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Also, something||
Also, something else that I remember from last year's process, there are actually 3 types of deferral letters. Each one says something different, and depending on which letter your daughter received, that may say something about her chances.
If you don't mind, could you post the first few entences of the letter your daughter received? If you did that, I could try and tell what the general consensus on that letter is.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||You can't||
You can't get waitlisted at this stage of applying. When you apply ealy action/early decision, there are three possible outcomes.The first two are accepted and rejected, which speak for themselves.
The third is deferred. Deferred basically means that they think you may be good enough to get in, but they want to see how you compare against the larger, regular decision pool. No one who applies early ever gets waitlisted, you can only get wait listed after you hear back at the regular decision deadline.
Basically, now that your daughter's deferred, it means that Michigan wants to see more of her credentials. This probably means sending in her first semester senior year grades, any new standardized tests she's taken, or whatever else the school asks for or you think would help her case.
Then, once they get all that, they will make a decision on her application along with the rest of the regular decision kids. At that point, she will either get accepted, rejected, or waitlisted.
As for when she'll hear back, I'm not sure. My guess is the latest she'll hear back is whenever the deadline for telling regular decision kids their results are, which is sometime in April I think, but it could possibly be much earlier. It varies.
As for personal experiences, I go to Michigan now as a freshman. I know many kids who got in after being deferred and currently go here. But I also know a few kids from my high school who got rejected after being deferred. One of the kids I know who got in heard back 3 weeks after he was deferred. While I doubt your daughter will hear back that soon, it is possible I guess.

If OSU beats Duke they probably jump us in that case and go to #2 or #1, depdning on Indiana's result.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Holy||
Holy crap, Greg Davis is literally the worst offensive co-ordinator I've seen all year. Him and that entire coaching staff deserves to be fired. The fact that someone that mentally incapacitated can get a major D-1 coaching job is absolutely mind-boggling.

Fire Borges, and hire Dan Roushar to replace him!
|2 years 50 weeks ago||If he||
If he wants to go to OSU, all the power to him. I just hope we don't start bashing his character and all that like OSU fans did to Kalis.
If he goes to OSU, OSU is getting a very good player. It will suck for any good player to go to OSU, especially one who was committed to us, but if he does end up going there, which I doubt, in the end, it's football, he's done nothing to offend me.
However, he will have hopefully offended our current committs, who he used to wake up every day to and tell "Go Blue"and talk about Team 134 with. I hope those players are offended, and if he does go to OSU, make it their mission every year at "The Game" to show him what a colossal mistake ge made.

Honestly, anybody could win that divison at this point. Do we honestly think PSU is any worse than OSU, Illinois, Wisconsin, or Indiana? Purdue I think is better, best team in the division as of now, but they could slip up here or there and leave the door open for PSU.

MSU is the first team this year to not put up at least 10 points on EMU in the first quarter this year. Teams that have include Ball State and Illinois State, an FCS team. Sparty gonna Spart.

Exactly guys. Urban Meyer doesn't want to win! If he wanted, he could win by 40 any day of the week! This is all by design! It's that SEC style of play that will put OSU over the top!

I'm fine with it. Florida, ND, and Stanford should have all jumped us with their wins. Meanwhile only Va Tech and MSU should have fallen behind us with their losses. 3 go ahead of us, 2 fall behind, means we fall one. Makes perfect sense to me.

I hate how overrated ND is year in and year out. But after their recent string of mediocrity and their fans posting things like "I don't ever think we'll beat Michigan in my lifetime again", they have become a much more tolerable fan base. MSU has the most annoying fanbase to ever walk this planet, so fuck 'em.
I've accepted that the B1G is crap as of now. So I'm not going to even worry about the B1G's appearance right now and that a MSU win looks good for the B1G, all I care about is us winning the B1G. So I'm going to be rooting for the team I hate less, ND.
Also, it'll be fun beating ND again this year, especially after they've beaten MSU and have even more unwarranted hype than usual. And on the off cance they beat us, oh well, after the past 3 years I can deal with 1 loss to ND.

|3 years 6 weeks ago||Wrong||
In 2013, Touissant will still be the starter, assuming he doesn't leave early, so that's wrong to begin with.
Also I don't know if I'd call Rawls the second string back, considering Vincent Smith is going to be getting a ton of playing time as well. He'd be the starter if Touissant went down/doesn't play due to suspension, but Smith will also be getting significant playing time as well.
Green would have a chance to start in 2014, when it would be a 2nd year Green vs a 4th year Rawls, both with 0 years starting experience. Assuming Green is as advertised and isn't a bust, I wouldn't be surprised if he surpases Rawls.
In Auburn's case, it would be a true freshman Green battling a 3rd year Mason. I'd expect a 3rd year player who has played significantly in the two years prior and was a top 200 player to beat out a true freshman, regardless of how talented he is. So Mason would presumable be the starter in 2013, and hold the role in 2014 as well, making it harder for Green to play right away.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||I know||
I know I know, which is why I said truely. Hopefully it is for once.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||Moving||
Moving into my Freshman dorm and Welcome Week. Pray that I survive.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||I'm||
I'm actually fairly confident in our chances with Green. We're in his top two no doubt with Auburn.
If academics are truely high on his list, we have a huge advantage there.
If he wants to play right away, I think he has a better chance here as well.
Touissant will be a RS Senior so after he's gone the competition will be wide open between him, Rawls, Smith, and the rest of the backs. He could definitely play as a freshman even just as a change of pace back or a goalline bruiser, so he could play right away. And while I don't want him to, there's a slight chance Touissant enters the draft if he does well enough, so that would open up playing time right away.
In 2013, Auburn will have a RB named Tre Mason who will be a true junior and will almost definitely be the starter, he's currently the second string back and played as a freshman as well. And depending on the route Javon Robinson takes, he could potentially re-enroll in Auburn as a 2013 recruit, and he's a talented 4 star RB who would challenge Green for time.
If he wants to decide in October, he already has us penciled in as a visit for October 20th. If he were to decide in Ocotber, that means that unless he visits Auburn the next week vs Texas A&M, we would have the last visit, which would bode well for us.
And looking at Auburn's schedule, they have a brutal first 2 months. They play Clemson in Georgia, at Mississippi State, vs LSU, vs Arkansas, at Vanderbilt, and vs Texas A&M are all games they have before the end of October, and all are very loseable. If they struggle early on, that may change his opinion of them a lot.
They also have a new OC, former Michigan QB Scott Loeffler, so how the Auburn Offense performs under him matters as well.
Auburn is also the presumed favorite for top RB Greg Bryant. If he committs to them before Green, it's assumed they won't have room for Green, and once again, that makes us the favorite.
Now all of this could very well be me with my Maize & Blue glasses on, but I really think he have a legit shot with him, and after his reaction to his first visit here, I really think we have a good shot.

Gerry Dinardo does very little for me, doesn't seem like he's a great analyst.
I also think that Hoke probably showed these guys very little. He's been very close to the chest with everything so far, and I doubt he had the team run anything besides the basic schemes with the camera's on them.

Looks like the end of the night for Shane Morris with DLS up 35-0. He finishes 14-25 for 178 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT.

When Shane Morris is on he is freaking on. After a slow start hes been tearing up Pioneer, which has been playing a nickel the entire time
After Morris led a surgical drive down the field, De La Salle’s RB punched it in from a yard out to make it 35-0. 4/5 for around 65 yards.

|3 years 6 weeks ago||He started||
He started 2-9, has gone 5 of 5 with 2 TDs since. Nice to seem him start to play to the level we all know he can. Maybe some early nerves got to him? Regardless he's on track for 200+ yards and 4 TDs. That's a solid day no matter what, and if he plays like he has after the 2 for 9 start he can do even better.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||Eh||
Eh, it's Jesse Palmer. His opinion on this topic definitely doesn't deserve it's own thread.
I also don't agree with the idea that because we lost to App. State once we should never schedule them again. Are we scared of App State? Do we fear them so much that we never want to play them again? No.
If we're going to schedule a cupcake, why not App State? Yes I know, that "The Horror" will be brought up every time we play them, but maybe if it's brought up every time we play them, it'll make the players on that work that much harder not to let it happen again.
"The Horror" will never have not happened, and it will always be there as a loss in our record books. Nothing will ever erase that horrible feeling. But if we scheduled App. State 100 times, and beat them 100 times, I wouldn't mind.
