Payne is a great example of a player who should have gotten better before year 4. He is a great example of a 4 year player that couldn't go pro because he wasn't good enough to go until after he graduated. I'm not sure why you think that is a good job by Izzo.
Also, I love how Dawson got better every year. I mean, I guess technically he got better from 2012 to 2013 because he averaged a half point better and 1.5 rebounds better. So he's got that going for him. But when you miss the hardest part of your schedule (half of the B10 season) in 2013 because you punch a table and get your numbers because of your non-conference games, I don't think you can say he improved. He did have amazing games against Harvard and Virginia though. So he must be improved I guess because those games were at the end of the year.

I'm not quite sure I've ever heard anyone say that, in basketball, height is overrated. Just because you named 8 guys in all of college basketball who are over 6'7 and not centers/power forwards doesn't mean that is the norm. Not to mention, of the guys you listed, you have the probable first pick in the draft followed possibly by 7 other first rounders. Height is not overrated when it comes to basketball and I'm not really sure why anyone would think otherwise.

I didn't suggest the coaching was great. But thank you for saying I did.
But I agree, Kalis was supposed to be really good and by his redshirt freshmen year, he wasn't....Time to look elsewhere.
You are also correct. Freshmen lineman who can't block another D1 defensive line like Akron should probably be cut. I'm glad they weren't though, because we probably wouldn't have put up 41 points on OSU at the end of the year if we cut all our lineman.
|2 days 22 hours ago||So you don't think being an||
So you don't think being an upperclassmen is important for offensive lineman? I'm not saying our offensive line coaching has been spectacular by any means, but you realize that we don't have a single senior or junior at tackle or guard this year, right? Which means last year every one of these guys was a freshman or redshirt freshman. You think they should be fully developed by then?

You aren't getting the analagoy. In this analogy, Nik can't go back to college because it would be illegal for him to go back, not because Michigan wouldn't allow him. You know, just like it would be illegal for him to play NBA basketball and then go back to play college basketball again.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I'm not saying they aren't||
I'm not saying they aren't good. I'm saying using last year's final four run to say this team is good is ridiculous. They lost 3 of their top 5 scorers. Those same 3 guys were also in the top 5 minutes played for them. They "really only lost Armstead" the same way Michigan "really only lost Burke" from last year's team.

They didn't return almost everyone.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||That's not actually true.||
That's not actually true. Most of MSU's defensive starters were at least a high 3-star or a 4-star to one of the sites. They actually signed more 4 and 5 star guys than they did 2 stars. This myth that Narduzzi has no talent to work with is just not true.

I'm actually more afraid of LeVert going pro than Robinson at this point.

If Harris showed how to guard him, I hope every team we play gaurds him the exact same way. He had 19 points on 7 of 12 shooting.

The fact that he is the only person other than Stauskas that can take anyone off the dribble?

This is fucking dumb. Since Hoke knew what happened when he said the bit about "family matters" in the presser, anything less than saying Gibbons was kicked off the team for being expelled from school for sexual misconduct would also be a lie.

Why do you have the word "allegedly" in there for the OSU running back? There is a video of him hitting her.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Well technically they did a||
Well technically they did a little fading in one of those three seasons. I swear everyone forgets that they didn't win a home B10 game the year before last.
I think losing their offensive line is going to be the death of them. Their defense is going to continue to be good, but they just don't have enough talent to reload. They will still probably win 7 or 8, but I think that is the max.

This entire thread one big Spartan ass-kissing thread. This is pathetic.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Beating one single team that||
Beating one single team that is anywhere near as good as Oregon makes me quite envious. I wish Hoke had a victory anywhere near as good as that one in his tenure here.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I love when Joe drafts||
I love when Joe drafts Drummond, or Prince, or Stuckey, or anyone else that plays well relative to where they were drafted, it is easy and he should have done it. When he drafts someone bad, he is the worst GM ever and should be canned. I know you didn't really say that, but Joe gets zero credit for any pieces of this team who play well and all credit for anyone underperforming. Just a funny observation.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Oh man, I got so lucky you||
Oh man, I got so lucky you wanted to be a dick to me but ended up not being a dick to me. I'm relieved.
You know, for someone who didn't want to be a dick, you sure come across as a prick. The condescending attitude is what does you in.
Truth be told, I don't usually understand people who talk out of their ass, so you're right, I don't understand what you're getting at. First off, I am guessing Magnus doesn't give a shit if you believe he is a coach. Second, I'm not sure why him being a coach is a reason he should never use stats as to how well a unit played. Third, I would like to know what amazing barometer you are using to let us know how stupid everyone is and how smart you are regarding how good the DEs were this year. I'm guessin it isn't as good as, you know, statistics, but please enlighten us as to how you came to your conclusion. If it starts out with "I just watched the games and I got a feeling," then you lose. At everything. Fourth, unless you rewatched every game and and broke down plays for both the DEs and the LBs, you really have no business spouting off about how good the DEs were and how lousy the LBs were. I don't really care whether you are correct or not, but I think it fucking ridiculous that you are telling someone with quite a bit of football knowledge that their stats aren't valid because Frank Clark himself was "far and away much better" than all the LBers and Heitlzmen was on par with the entire LB unit, you know, just because you said so. Actually, it looks like your overall point was that Frank Clark was better than the LBers, which wasn't even the original argument. But please, tell us how your eye test is better than stats Mr joined the site 2 weeks ago.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||As opposed to someone who||
As opposed to someone who doesn't coach football using the eye test to tell us that 50% of our DE's who were on the field were solid this year while completely ignoring Magnus' point about Clark doing nothing in certain games?
I feel like you would be a good spokesman for Sex Panther. It's got real bits of panther in it.

Frank Clark has no felony in his record. So who is the convicted felon?
|21 weeks 3 days ago||To be fair, Northwestern is||
To be fair, Northwestern is probably not going to be bowl eligible and doesn't have a Big 10 win. I don't think Hoke should be fired, but to act like a triple overtime win against one of the worst teams in probably the worst BCS conference isn't a good thing no matter how you slice it.
And going for it on 4th and 2 is a lot different than going for it on 4th an inches. Especially when, at that time, we had scored exactly 1 touchdown in the past 12 quarters. Kick the field goal. If you are going to trust your defense (which is basically what Hoke was doing by going for it on 4th down inside the 10), trust them to stop NW from driving down the field after you tie it up.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||You know what is f unny...you||
You know what is f unny...you said Michigan was mediocre because they had consistent 3-4 year loser outside of the disaster years where it was worse. Dantonio has been at MSU for 6 years. He has had 1 season with fewer than 3 losses. He also has two 7-6 yeard, a 6-7 year, and a 9-4 year. You have basically just said we should respect Sparty for being Mediocre.You have also just said that MSU being mediocre has gotten them to the 3rd best B10 team. Your entire post is extremely ironic.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||It says Michigan has been||
It says Michigan has been shitty the past 5 years. Where have you been...is this news to you? In the spartans amazing 5 game seroes, Michigan has had 1 team with more than 8 wins. If Michigan's ceiling was beating the spartans 90% of the time and never making a BCS bowl game, I would be pretty pissed off.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||How dare he use his free time||
How dare he use his free time to do anything other than what I have deemed appropriate?!?!?! And while we're at it, I don't think he should be able to watch TV, play video games, or actually live the life of a normal human being. Dance for my amusement!
Oh, and you are a fucking tool.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||I can't fathom, after 2||
I can't fathom, after 2 straight games with negative rushing yards, one of those games against a defense that has allowed a silly number of shitty teams to rush for over 200 yards, a coach even using coach speak to insinuate that the playcalling was in any way correct. He is basically telling us that the players can't do anything correctly if the playcalling was right. How else am I supposed to interpret that? If there is nothing wrong with the playcalling, and we ran for negative yardage, who does that fall on?

Yeah, they would never have a list of easy classes to make it easier on football players to pass said classes.
Yes, Stanford is a better academic school than most schools. There isn't that big of a difference for football players.

I feel like you think this PSU debacle is all people are referring to when they talk about getting rid of Al. You remember last year, when the same points were brought up after losses that we could have possibly eon? You remember when bubble screens were talked about last year as a solution to teams stacking the box? Guess what... it hasn't gotten better. I'm not quite sure why you think it will.

Did you actually read the article? Because you seem to not know what was in it if you think the Freep didn't claim anything.

That what happened at Michigan was similar to paying student athletes. Oh wait no, that is what you were doing and were called out for being a troll. He was also trying to say that no other coaches did the same thing as RichRod so it must have been an awful thing he did. Oh no wait, that is what you said and were called out for being a troll.
