Who is "our?" I honestly don't know who he's referring to when he says that. The players, the fans? Why not just call it "the" game. He sounds like such a controlling asshole all the time.
|8 hours 27 min ago||I haven't watched all of them||
but Once Brothers is probably my favorite out of the ones I've seen. I like when history gets involved in sports. I don't feel bad for Vlade in that situation, but it is interesting to see how a quick, impulsive mistake can haunt you the rest of your life. They still hate him in Croatia. I think all of us can find times in our lives where we did something stupid and regretted it, but were lucky to not have it affect us that much; the show gave me pause and made me thankful for what I have, and to be more thoughtful of my actions in the future.

That was a smart move that was much appreciated; it's bad when your female boss stops by and you have a girl in a bikini up on your screen
|5 days 13 hours ago||I watched a bit of the 2nd half||
I don't know squat about lacrosse, but for the 10 real-time minutes I watched, OSU scored 4 goals and U-M didn't even get the ball past midfield. They had a play where the U-M goalie just chucked it up for grabs just past midfield, the OSU guy easily jumped in front of the U-M guy, stole it, and went right down and scored. I assume that's bad.
|5 days 13 hours ago||You say that while the ND game is on||
No team is more entrenched in tradition than they are. Just replacing the shitty grass they have with field turf caused a complete uproar (they just had an interview with the AD Swarbruck, and he was doing his best political doublespeak to justify it) and the mere thought of putting a Jumbotron in there would give boosters a heart attack. Yet they still roll with a full spring game.
|5 days 13 hours ago||QBs are making some nice throws, but I agree||
That TE across the middle doesn't have anyone within 5 yards of him, and the play where Prosise turned around and outran their entire secondary was comical.

defense perhaps suspect without Tuitt and NIx

but it was a wild Tigers game
|1 week 17 hours ago||If you're a fan of golf, I imagine it's a big deal||
My cousin is a huge golf nut; he's got the country club membership and watches the golf channel all day on the weekends whenever he isn't playing. He takes time off work to watch the Masters. A couple years ago, I carpooled with his family to my aunt's for Easter, and I didn't pay attention to the fact that it was Masters weekend. Big mistake. We had to stay at my aunt's till like ~8:30 PM (dinner was at 2 and I would have gone home at 5 if I drove myself) because my cousin refused to go home until it was over. There was a Tigers game that went to extra innings, and we didn't see any of it because the guy refused to give up the remote to the only TV in the house. So I have a certain hatred for the event because it wasted my evening one time.
I used to play golf when I was a kid -- it was good way to hang out with my dad on a Sunday morning -- but I couldn't give two shits about the sport now. Waste of money. If I want to enjoy the outdoors, I'll hike through the woods for free.

I wasn't into recruiting at this time and honestly don't know who either of these guys were. Which is similar to how football was for many fans back in the old days before the current public knowledge of recruiting we know today. The only recruit I ever remember hearing about was Baraka, due to the extreme hype, and I had absolutely no knowledge of the recruiting class until the first game of the fall came out and the game program had a full roster. Now we know what these kids had for dinner in 8th grade.
|1 week 2 days ago||A few name screwups||
I think I heard a Gerald Wilson as well
I half-expected some Brian-isms like Taylor Lou-en near the end there
|1 week 4 days ago||Some interesting OL combos||
Glasgow was at RT the whole time. He sealed the edge pretty well out there, leading to two of the big runs. Miller had a few OK blocks and I don't know if that guy's completely out of the equation at center. There was a play where Ryan came completely untouched, and I don't really know who to blame because literally no one made an effort to block the guy; neither of the two sets of combo blockers had anyone go to the 2nd level (they both stayed locked on their double teams). so there was just nobody there to do anything. Either way, it's hard to evaluate the OL when there were a lot of weird line combos out there.
The TE blocking is still sketchy. Williams got burned on one of the early runs. Khalid HIll looks really slow off the line and blocked air on one of the TFLs. It seems that whenever the defense slants inside, and the TE has to basically reach block, they get completely burned.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Version 4.0||
of the Spring Practice Hype Guy That Never Plays a Down
3.0 - Nathan Brink
2.0 - Mark Moundros
1.0 - some guy before Moundros that I can't remember
We thought Glasgow was going to be the guy last year. Little did we know.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The thing that screwed them||
was the scramble at the other end to tie the game. They didn't get the first shot up early enough for a proper 2-for-1; I think it went up ~35 seconds, which is about 5 seconds late, assuming you make the shot and want 5 seconds to come back down after playing defense. The scramble took about another 10 seconds off the clock and you have no chance to come back down later. Now you're at the mercy of your defense. They played defense fine, the guy had to make a Trey Burke-esque 3 to win the game, nothing you can really do about that.
|3 weeks 10 hours ago||There's only 9 graduating seniors||
9 graduating + the 4 they banked = 13 currently available for 2015
Here's the scholarship count
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I like 2:04 of the junior highlights||
Very Jake Ryan-esque in shedding the block. Good instincts and doesn't shy away from contact. Doesn't look like he'd have any trouble bulking up and playing safety if they needed him to.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||OL lacks a leader||
While I'm not one to jump on the "Lewan was bad for this team" bandwagon, it's pretty clear he was no David Molk.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Still one of the biggest "huh?" thread titles ever|
|5 weeks 14 hours ago||Illinois opened up a 20-6 lead on Iowa last Saturday||
and gave it all back in less than 10 mins
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Virginia keying on him in the 2nd half||
Had 13 in the first half, I don't think he's taken a shot in the 2nd half. I haven't seen a rebound, either.
Just now he got fouled on a drive, and missed both FTs
|7 weeks 14 hours ago||That is really funny||
you can see he's trying to raise his hands up to cheer, but all he can do is kind of heave his arms up in the air.
|7 weeks 17 hours ago||Terone Johnson just completely deflated||
like the end of the Toronto Raptors rollerblading mascot GIF
|8 weeks 7 hours ago||I remember that game||
Pretty sure that camera guy got hit by a full cup of pop. He just went completely apeshit and actually almost hurt himself jumping down from the camera stand; he was still pretty high in the air and he had to duck under the safety bar that was on the thing. His dismount was awkward as hell. I don't know what he expected to be able to do since there was a big wall there. I want to say it was 97 because I had row 8s in 26 that year and was close enough to see much of what was going on.
The plastic shield came the very next game, I think. People still made an effort to arc stuff over the shield and hit the guy.

Hey, let's play a song you play during a 4th-quarter blowout right during one of the most tense moments of the game, great idea
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Devin Gardner got a lot better||
he wasn't doing loop-de-loops in the backfield and throwing picks into his own endzone anymore.
Lewan and Schofield had already maxed their potential pretty much, so it would be hard for them to improve.
The others...pretty much stagnated. Especially the people on defense. I expected the secondary to be much better and they were pretty bad. I expected more from Thomas Gordon especially; huge dropoff from Kovacs. Quinton Washington -- I don't even know what happened to that guy, he just didn't play at the end of the season. The CBs weren't fantastic, maybe they had little faith in their safties and played tentative. People are rightfully harping on the offense, but it wasn't a banner year on defense, either.

GERG has taught me it can always get worse.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||"Stunning" is his "tremendous"||
I think I heard him say it 3 times in one sentence yesterday
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Congrats to both||
they come from a different background than I do, and when I was in college I used to be very judgmental/competitive about that sort of stuff, but they put in the effort and 100% deserve it.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Barring a big jump from AJ Williams||
we have to pin our hopes on Khalid Hill or maybe Shallman. It'll be interesting to see their weights when the spring roster comes out. Hill was 258 and Shallman 237 (same as Butt and 3 inches shorter) at the start of last year. I doubt Paskorz plays much since he basically maxed out at 255.
