Yeah, there is an app called Grab that comes with OSX - allows full screen, window or selection captures

B1G is a pretty small conference overall - there will be teams we are small against but MSU has the same issues

With Florida taking McElwain and Nebraska perhaps making a decision soon what will the rush be for us? If anything I think this means we can take our time as long as there aren't any other big time programs looking in the future.
|3 weeks 2 hours ago||I would like to know who||
I would like to know who suggested that Schlissel contact Hackett in the first place. Knowing this would probably give us an idea of where things are headed.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I fear that they have hired a guy||
I fear that they have hired a guy that is more interested in being the AD than helping find the “best qualified” AD for the job. The more time he spends making AD decisions the more he becomes entrenched. There needs to be a search committee dedicated towards the AD search and let Hackett play the interim AD only. FFS we need the best qualified and talented AD we can get.

I wasn’t at the game so I can’t comment on when the training staff was working on Shane’s ankle before the hit to the head but if you look at the tape you can see Paul Schmidt talking to him after he comes of the field while Shane is somewhat leaning on him and holding on to his face mask. Less than a minute later Shane is getting up off the bench with no trainers around (as you point out) to go back on the field.
After the running play that Shane came in you see him on the bench with Schmidt looking at the ankle. I would think a proper evaluation would mean actually looking and testing it which did not happen the first time Shane came out.

I’m not sure why he isn’t getting more criticism. He was only talking to Shane for a few moments before Shane went to the bench and was sitting there with no trainers around before getting called back to the field.
Shane was somewhat leaning on him with his head down and holding his face mask - he did not look like he should have been cleared to play and I don’t understand why his ankle didn’t receive any attention until after Shane ran the one play for Gardner.

They need to lose the wooshes or at least limit them to only a couple - very annoying

I've been watching the CBC feed since early on. Actually prefer the analysis better there as well. Granted most will not have this option.

I don't really follow international soccer outside of the World Cup that closely so I am not as passionate about the other events like the CONCACAF Cup. Since I've been a (World Cup) soccer fan USA has always (since 1990) been in and I think the only time we faced them (Mexico) we beat them.

The day I let what some random group of fans are chanting at a sporting event affect who I root for is when I stop watching sports.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Not sure I agree with your analogy||
Not sure I agree with your analogy since all these teams would essentially be in the same conference (keeping with your B1G analogy) and none of them outside perhaps Ghana (because of our history with them) would be considered a rival.
Also, since the Netherlands is one of the favorites to win 6-1 odds compared to Mexico 22-1 odds it would seem to be in the USA's interest for Mexico to win. If the Netherlands win it would mean most likely that we would have to beat Belgium (15-1), Argentina (4-1) and then Netherlands (6-1) to reach the final.
So I'm rooting for Mexico and the Swiss (80-1) but above all I'm rooting for entertaining matches.

I haven't seen all the games but Ivory Coast is pretty athletic and the Netherlands has a lot of speed at forward.

Not sure if International but it's the same feed that CBC is using.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||You are correct - in late||
You are correct - in late April they adopted a change (for the 2015-16 academic year) to the waiver policy for transfer student-athletes. From what I understand it eliminates the possibility of playing immediately and instead adds an extra year of playing time.
The NCAA certainly may have a bias to the new policy but the reason they are changing the policy is to allow the athlete to become acclimated to the new school for a year while dealing with the issue that caused the hardship - which, in this case is not really relevant.
In regards to chances of getting the waiver and timing:
The NCAA says there is no set criteria in determining the waiver rather a case by case basis. However, the following may help the cause if true:
- The family member is his Mother and not a distant relative.
- Proximity (Within driving distance)
- If the issue (ear) happened after not before enrolling at USC
Finally, they will need to submit documentation from his Mother's doctor so this could take some time for the paperwork to get sent and then the decision.
|29 weeks 6 days ago||Washington offered him a scholarship||
Washington offered him a scholarship and since Nussmeier was the OC/QB Coach (2009-11) there during the time he was recruited (he was a 2012 signee) I would assume that he was involved if not the primary recruiter.
Also, he was recruited and offered by Michigan and by SDSU so Hoke should be familiar with him. I couldn't find any character issues mentioned - most comments I read from Oregon posters were sympathetic about him wanting to get playing time. It sounds like he may have come to Oregon with injuries that set him back.
|46 weeks 3 days ago||Spot on||
So much unnecessary drama with fan bases these days. If you would just watch and support your team(s) and stay away from what rivals are saying you would be amazed not only how much more you enjoy watching your own team but sports in general.
|46 weeks 5 days ago||RE: Payne||
Whereas this may be a smokescreen I think losing Dawson might have actually increased the chance that Payne doesn’t play since Payne would have to play more of an offensive rebounding role without Dawson in there to clean up the boards.
I would think he dresses and he plays only if he victory is possible but I think Izzo views this team as his best and maybe last chance at winning a national championship and he wouldn’t risk that even to beat Michigan.
|46 weeks 5 days ago||Start over?||
Start over? Have you not been following our recruiting? We have had several excellent years of recruiting and I personally like the young men we have coming this year.
We are never going to get ALL the recruits - Ohio will always have an advantage in Ohio because many of those kids grew up Buckeye fans - so it will always be a battle regardless if we beat them or not. We did take advantage and pull in some kids that were Ohio leans in the last couple of classes but honestly how long do you think Ohio would be down? - especially with a recruiter like Meyer.
This is just like all the Sparty fans crying about the missed window during the Rich Rod tenure and aftermath - it would take years of them winning at a high level to erase the general perception of them as second tier to Michigan and this isn’t going to happen.

One of the best English comedies and Rowan Atkinson at his best - IMO he is much better playing the sarcastic, biting wit type role than the bungling Mr Bean.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||This could answer the question||
This could answer the question: Why was our offense good in the first two games and then struggled greatly since? (with the exception of Indiana). Teams know what we are running - to use baseball parlance we are tipping our pitches. This combined with our lack of a counter or deception (as Brian pointed out many times) coupled with inexperience on the interior of the OL line and we have what we have and that is an offense that can be stopped by even the worst defenses in college football.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||It's not that||
It's not that we just played a poor game at MSU - which many expected - it's that we have played poorly since Notre Dame against very poor competition. Oklahoma was obviously overrated but I wouldn't compare our situation with any top 20 teams right now.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||A lot of sunshine blowers on here||
The final score was nice but it was a close game and Minnesota got dominated by Iowa the week before at home. What is wrong with stating the obvious - this was an average performance with the main possitive being no turnovers.
Gardner had a good game statisitcally but if you watched the game you know that many or most of those throws were off target and took great catches for them to be completitions.
I think Fitz had his best game but the offensive line is still suspect - especially in run blocking. Bryant had a lot of trouble out there at LG - he was beat multiple times which I guess you can expect with his inexperience. Without watching the tape it looked like Glasgow was an improvement over Miller.
We are 5-0 but I am not comfortable with any of our remaining games.

Akron had a good game plan and they played very well. I'm not sure why or how they played in previous games but they have far more game experience then we have
|1 year 13 weeks ago||A couple of things||
This was for the most part an experienced Akron team especially on the line and Akron changed their game plan - they slowed down their tempo etc but we definitely played like we were in a hangover haze from the ND game.

It was embarrassing at half time... Why do you have to wait until the next game to tackle, block or give better effort.
