247 had an article recently to the effect of "Nebraska lands nation's top slot WR, per 247", talking about Tyjon Lindsay (I'm sure I butchered that name). We'll apparently not, per 247.

Can he play OT or DT, not even joking

Is that from the mgoblue roster? If yes it's very possible he's put on a good amount of weight since that training camp measurement.

What is he doing grabbing the guy's arm and falling down? He pinned the arm underneath and landed with his weight on it, could have seriously hurt that Louisville player. On top of it, he's flailing around and faking for the ref, as if he's being fouled. This dumb ass acting like he was hit in the face before he's actually slapped in the face a moment later. It's so justice.

They may be looking around, realizing nobody else is coming, an see an opportunity to get in the door to an elite high school and tweak M's nose by getting a head to head "win" if Taylor ends up there.
I wonder at what point we may go back after thekid who switched to BC. Tell him LB is off the table and he's a RB. Could do that if it looks like we'll only end up with 1 RB in the class

I was wondering this - I assumed he was hurt for a good chunk of the year. Can't remember hearing his name much

Several more ballz to ASU for him today
Unrelated, seeing Darnay Holmes ballz revert all the way back to UCLA is interesting. If true, would be a long way round to the team everyone assumed in the first place
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Irresponsible speculation||
Irresponsible speculation time: any chance Asiasi moves to DT? There are precious few options on the roster for conversion, and both OL and DL are needed. The kid's already larger than Hurst, according mgoblue.
Yes, he looks like a great one at TE and Harbaugh loves his TE and he'll never move him and this will never happen. But the need at DT seems so great. And the kid's a great athlete with power and I'd bet Mattison can get him playing really well.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Then he's just a RB and||
Then he's just a RB and you've lost the extra blocker. You've also limited the number of plays available drastically. Do you decoy and if yes, can he pass block? That's not easy to do as we all know. If you throw to him, can he catch?
10,000 mgopoints says if Harbaugh had done this late in the year (though by this I don't know exactly what you mean), ran the plays and it got stuffed - because to my original point all our stuff got stuffed in the red zone late in the year, which is what happens when you can't run or protect - you and a dozen others would be up in arms that Harbaugh didn't run the Pepcat. "It worked against Colorado and Rutgers and yada yada, why wouldn't we krep rinning it yada yada..."

Neither Irvin nor Robinson wanted that ball on the last posession. Hot potato.
And they let a freshman future dentist beat them. Never let a future dentist beat you.

Good thing you're not watching him because he's going to redshirt
|2 weeks 4 days ago||What are the alternatives?||
What are the alternatives? Have him throw? We tried that and teams sniffed it out. Use him as a receiver and catch the ball? That takes away the man advantage and none of us know if he can catch (jugs machine video or no).
You're talking about good teams late in the year who'd seen it. Maybe you don't put Peppers in, but he's your best player. And the regular offense wasn't doing much in the red zone those games either.
I agree no coach is infallible, but what is the alternative here besides observing that it didn't work as a fan and then complaining about it. Pepcat didn't work, regular offense didn't work. I say that's due to the limitations I note in my post above (which everyone already knows). But I'm open to a suggestion of what they should have done.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||What's interesting within the||
What's interesting within the "OSU doesn't have a passing game" story line is that most blame Barret's arm. It does seem at times as if they actually don't have a passing game, meaning no route tree or priority of reads. For so long it was run, run, run, chuck it deep to wide open guy. They have plays to get a TE open or pop a screen, but on 3rd and 8 there's no deep outs or corners or other multiple read combos with QB/WR timing that can meaningfully gain that yardage. It's another disguised play to get an athlete in space on a short throw and have them gain the distance.
Woefully oversimplifying and I understand they do have a tree and routes and all that, it just sometimes appears that they don't. Certainly in a game like this. And really their last 3 games against one decent and two excellent defenses. There's only so much practice time, and it's hard to find a QB that can make excellent reads in the run game, excel in that run game, and be a downfield passer.
They'll certainly be back though.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||You acknowledge that he's too||
You acknowledge that he's too soft at RB, then suggest putting him in at flex TE? Those guys hammer block and nearly every play and get a pass once a month. If you're suggesting you wouldn't have him block in that role but merely catch passes, you are making a case to tip a passing play every time he comes in, and that he has enough value as a receiving theat to alter the whole offense.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I still don't understand this||
I still don't understand this narrative. What is on the staff besides dragging a very good but fundamentally flawed team to within a play or two of the playoff?
Iowa: a consistent series of errors by the players themselves, any of which could have won that game. The team was 9-0, the pressure was on, road game against a good team with nothing to lose - Michigan has their bad game (I believe every team has at least one each year) and melted a bit. This happens when a team hasn't been accustomed to the pressures of winning. Lost by 1.
OSU: yes officiating, and a great game lost in OT. In Columbus.
FSU: M's offense didn't belong on the same field. Lost their two best players. Lost by 1.
Let me guess, you thought the offense wasn't very creative? This is such a lazy narrative. Didn't like the toss sweeps? Then I guess you must have liked the inside runs. Oh, can't run the ball inside or outside. Can't hold protection for more than a few moments. FSU DL literally chucking guys in a moment and sprinting at Speight. "Go deep, why didn't we test their safeties deep?!" They could not protect for more than a few moments, and our WRs got no separation on anyone all year. How the hell would we go deep? Can't run, can't pass. Do you think there's a magical scroll that allows even great coaches to solve that problem against good teams? There's not. And Harbaugh's staff still almost did.
What are your specific complaints? Iowa played like madmen, beat our DL pretty good. Otherwise the D was excellent at OSU and pretty good at FSU. Offensive personnel is nowhere near playoff level and wasn't in any of those games.

The phrase "if we fire Harbaugh" even being uttered at all shows how utterly foolish parts of this fanbase is. After two 10-3 seasons. Gross stupidity.

Hudson has been at safety for most of the year, as I understand it.
Very encouraging if Metellus can play SAM. Going to be a very fun team to watch in '17

You're working much too hard to make yourself miserable. Chesson was not nearly All-B1G this year, Darboh was fine, Butt was good but not exceptional, and the O-line was poor all year. Couldn't run the ball, couldn't get a first down when needed on the ground, Speight was on the run against any good team, how many critical plays did someone come through unblocked?
You're letting your emotion over this loss consume your reason.

Is this even serious or are you trying to swim to the bottom of the misery pool? Throttling PSU, beating Wiscy, which are two other NY6 bowl teams. Colorado as well. And yes, beating MSU on the road was nice after the last decade.

Speight barely had time to throw curls, forget about downfield. And our WRs weren't getting any separation

They don't get separation, they don't have elite speed. Some of that is chicken and the egg with Speight's accuracy.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Some of you are so angry.||
Some of you are so angry. The lack of even an average OL couldn't be papered over anymore (and no real playmakers at WR or RB), even with this defense. The fact that M still Almost made the playoff and Almost won the Orange Bowl is fantastic.
The loss was a bummer. But they fought like hell. I'm very excited for where this program is headed, can't wait for spring ball.
