If we can get Hoke to decommit, can we get Mikey to stay?
|6 days 4 hours ago||This team is more "Sparty||
This team is more "Sparty no!" then Sparty ever was. That is all you need to know.
|6 days 4 hours ago||This is the least disciplined||
This is the least disciplined team I have ever seen. Stupid penalties, stupid plays, missed assignments, dropped passes. Hoke should not be around for next week.

Nice job Raymon. Don't bother running with the WR.

Also, if the ball is supposed to be on the stripe of the 32, why is it beyond the stripe of the 32 when they measure?

Also, if Ryan simply plays that straight up it is an easy play. His freelancing killed that play.

I have never seen a successful review of the spot, so I assume that this will be a first down.

Wait, does North Carolina even have athletic programs anymore? Aren't they about to get the death penalty, have the sanctions waived, and then given the death penalty again, just for good measure?

Instant classic! There is already video posted of the game!

Snap the freaking ball!

Have we reached the point at which Gardner's near-pick-sixes outnumber his completions? It has to be getting close.

Obviously by misidentifying his talent and keeping him on the bench the coaches also had fewer reps in which to destroy his natural abilities with their terrible coaching.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks for looking that up.||
Thanks for looking that up. Perhaps it was not another turnover at all. I just recall a sequence that was indicative of the season, where slight pressure on Gardner caused a very erratic throw that took the receiver to the ground in making the catch. Rather than hurry up and snap the ball so that the catch would not be overturned, Michigan huddled and a review was called for very late. We turned a manageable third down into a longer one that played into MSU's hands because we are unwilling or unable to run tempo.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Perhaps the terrible plays||
Perhaps the terrible plays are all running together in my mind, but was that also right after we had a short reception that would have put us into a manageable distance, which looked like it may not be a catch, and then we huddled forever giving them time to go to the replay and overturn it? I seem to recall that happening just before a turnover.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Every time that I think that||
Every time that I think that I have seen Devin Gardner throw the worst pass in the history of football at any level, he goes and outdoes even himself. Who says we have no player development? They develop into worse and worse players with every passing week.

I really wish that 11 wasn't an insurmountable lead, but with this offense it appears to be.
Aside from inability to put together a team that looks like it has played football before, the decisions make no sense:
1) MSU driving, defense gassed, time ticking down leaving no time for offense? Keep all timeouts in your pocket.
2) Offense useless, special teams and defense only chance to score points? Let kickoff go over head for a touchback.
3) Already let nearly all time run out? Run a play with zero chance of creating any chance of scoring.
It is just that we are bad at executing good ideas and gameplans. We have bad ideas and terrible gameplans, and fail to even execute those.

So when people engage in a difficult trade because they likely lack other, better options, you would help them by giving them fewer options?

It was competitive for a while, before IU's sixth string QB started playing like a 6th string QB and their defense started playing like a typical IU defense.

Hoke identified counting to 11 as an area for improvement over the final five games of the season.

It sure looked like a QB draw would have worked on that one, IF run decisively.

When you are in a short yardage situation and a defender jumps across, shouldn't the center just snap the ball?

Then again, DG under threw a 4yard screen pass earlier, so...

I think that having the other team completely blow a coverage and leave a man entirely uncovered in the endzone on fourth and long involves a little bit of luck.

If neither gets canned by the end of the season then we may have to change "leaders and best" to "complacent and mediocre."

It is certainly a threat to impact the bottom line in the future, and demonstrates an ability to do so.

He got hit so hard in the leg that they have been evaluating him for concussion-like symptoms.

DB reminds me of Jerry Jones, who is also an asshole capable of doing great damage to the team that he supposedly loves.

Not selling himself may have been out of necessity rather than an affirmative choice. Apparently there is not much to sell when it comes to Hoke.
