I think Dantonio is the number 2 coach in the country...i think he took at least 5 years to get to a conference title....
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Not Me||
I see plenty of scenarios where they do...like 2015 or 2016 when our entire team is Juniors and sensiors and sprinkle in the Peppers and Damian Harris of the world. Mattison coaches defense like he is suppose to and Nuss coaches like a madman...Actually, If we are not in the playoff by 2016, I will be surprized.....
edit: oops missed the joke about getting "BAMA"s Nat C
|2 weeks 4 days ago||SO AGREE...||
It's almost like everyone forgot that the ONLY National Championship we won since the 40's was basically all defense! Forget about offense, play defense like MSU last year or us in 97...thats all I care about....
|5 weeks 4 days ago||the TE from NC||
that guy is a stud...thats who I would draft
|7 weeks 2 days ago||here is a quote from Funchess off of Rivals:||
"Freddy Canteen came in, and he's a blazer," Funchess said of the early-enrolled rookie. "I didn't expect that out of him because I didn't watch much film on him. So when he came in running that fast, I was kind of impressed. I kind of worked with him, making sure he can get a transition from high school to college. I told him today, him and [early enrollee] Drake Harris, 'You've got grown men playing now. You've got grown men that we're going against up here in college, you're not in high school anymore.'
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Perfect||
I personally thought that last year would see these changes, especially on defense...but regardless, no time like the present!!!
|7 weeks 5 days ago||the offense took a beating on this site||
but I remember a ton of times yelling at the games or at my TV for the defense to be more agressive (a great example was the end of regulation against the FRESHMAN PSU QB.....)
|7 weeks 5 days ago||EXACTLY||
become MSU's defense! I want a defense as good as MSU's. SO maybe (please please please)...we are trying to emulate MSU's. Press coverage, gap blitzing, etc....Jake in the middle helps become more like MSU and Ross at SAM as well...now we need Taylor, Countess, Peppers, etc.. to press the crap out of receivers....
|7 weeks 5 days ago||I love the trade||
Basically trading Ross for Ryan....Ryan is bigger and Ross is faster....A bigger guy is the middle is good, a faster guy on the corner is good....Perfect trade!
|7 weeks 5 days ago||I think thats it||
ROss on the edge and Ryan in the middle is the trade...I like that trade because I want more size in the middle and more speed outside...

He had a ton of great movies but writing that movie was the best work he ever did...it is so perfect...
|8 weeks 5 days ago||MSU||
what did they do the last 2 years in this running stat?...I think everyone on this site forgets that MSU was 7-6 two years ago...why? they played all of their games close and lost half of them (roughly)...I think we have done the same thing for 3 years. Played all (OK most) of our games close and only in the first year did we win more than ~ 1/2. That first year, we were lucky...but what happened to MSU the past year? I am willing to bet that this new running stat didn't change much yet they went 13-1!
How come? because QB obviously but I also think that a few other things happened - key positions had upperclassmen, several of their 3* guys turned into NFL players, their defensive system (which they have been using for 5-6 years) became cutting edge, etc...
In the end, football is played so much "tighter" than the old days (in terms of score). Yes, Akron and UConn should never had happened (I blame O coaching, OLine play, defensive "soft" play, etc.), but if you can improve one or two drives (i.e. stop 1 or 2 more or score 1 or 2 more) you became MSU from last year. Let's hope Nuss can change it one drive on offenese and Mattison grow some balls on defense.....
|10 weeks 2 days ago||I was listening on the radio||
today. He was definitely implying that we do not have enough black kids on the team. That was his point. I personally think its a transition thing, but Larry thinks its a race thing. White kids are not tough enough because they want an education. Black kids are tough because they don't care...I listened for about 2 hours and that was my take away.....
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Youth||
Senior Starters on Offense next year are Devin...thats it!...I count 3 on Defense (Ryan, Clark, Morgan)....Bottom Line is Hoke recruits are Juniors (I don't count 2011) and younger....what did you expect?
|13 weeks 2 days ago||claude shannon||
Not even close...from his masters thesis using an obscure math from Boole to everything involving information and communication (including the frickin web and cell phones)...he is it and its not even close...as a distant 2nd...Leith and Upatniks for inventing the hologram
|13 weeks 2 days ago||i worked with jack||
|13 weeks 2 days ago||awesome!...the smartest man who ever lived||
We wouldnt be talking on this without claude....he blows away einstein...everything today from cell phones to high def to the internet to computers...the michigan grad from gaylord set it all up....its unfortunate that his stuff is too complex for the average Joe to get...but i don't care he is THE MAN!
|14 weeks 2 days ago||i heard it||
I was listening to it and i think the OP minimizes his talk...he said it in totally mocking tone....he was a jerk which he usually is not....him and vadorkti were bitching that Hoke not answering any questions but Brandon did hence Nuss will take over soon because he was Brandon bitch...they laughed like little sparty jerks....GOD WE NEED KILL THEM NEXT YEAR'39;s hir...
|14 weeks 3 days ago||how about option 4||
Nuss came to hoke and said he was available...hoke thought about that and then fired borges...as an owner/mànager this has happened to me many times!
|14 weeks 4 days ago||not surprised||
I have had faith in Hoke and I know he will do the right thing...yes youth was an issue, but obviously Hoke felt it was more than that...I am sure he waited this long because Wilson Spreicht.....
|14 weeks 4 days ago||also||
Richrod had 6 Double digit losses and Hoke only had 2
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Just saw this||
OK, well our GM at our place (Pi Restaurant) was the bartender the night coach M got in trouble. Also, the waitress waiting on Coach M that night worked for me as well. So from them this is what happened....Coach M was not a good drinker at all, back in those days Excalibur was a place that alot of Michigan personnel went. That particular night, Coach M and his wife got in a fight...He started drinking more, she got more upset and to piss him off decided to dance with someone on the dance floor...obviously he even got more POed and more drunk, they had no choice but to call the cops, and the rest is history....sort of seems weird to lose your job over it....
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I am optimistic...||
First off, Manball is the way to go...Wisconsin has represented the B1G the last 3 years, MSU this year and Tressel's version of Manball before...Therefore, at least Hoke knew that manball was how you win the B1G. Step 1 accomplished.
Second, to do manball recruit OL and DL especially because the previous coach didn't care about OL and DL. Step 2 accomplished.
Step 3, get Dropback QBs who can process data quickly and take pressure off your OL and help your RB by not alowing 8 or 9 in the box...accomplished
4 - BIG receivers and TEs to beat man to man...accomplished
5 - Skill guys in the secondary who are big as well...accomplished
I could go on and on...but unfortunatley, the missing link is that this "stew" needs time to cook...Dantonio was 5-7 his 3rd year!!!, I will be shocked if we do not go at least 9-3 next year and basically dominate in 2015....

Once again you nailed it....this is all about experience and talent and finally coaching ...i know we have talent...i think we have coaching and i know we didn't have experience
|16 weeks 5 hours ago||i so agree||
We won because of our defense and Oline back in the day...and wouldn't get blown out because of it...the one good thing i saw from your data is that we did only have 2 double digit losses this year...whereas richrod's last year we had 6...i think these oline recruits will bring us back...think about it...back in the day if you started on michigan oline...you played in the nfl...QB too...anyway...i have been a huge hoke supporter...but i am nervous trusting him to teach our lines.....

you are correct about Coach Moeller and the incident.....
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Excalibur||
I own the old excalibur (and the banqet hall behind it) and used to own Il Posto Ristorante as well...I know the entire story about Coach Moeller (my favorite Michigan coach), but it happened before I took over
|19 weeks 1 day ago||hahaha thats awesome!||
I told my wife that jokes and she laughed her ass off too!
|19 weeks 2 days ago||I figured||
Funny I sell engineering software products and they brought me in because these products can perform a Monte style analysis. Good deal. I love your analysis on play-calls BTW
