|3 hours 51 min ago||What I can understand||
What I can't understand is that after 4 years of working with a strength and conditioning coach a player can have zero muscle definition. Virtually every play gets bigger and stronger. I don't like to criticize players but Mark just seems soft and uninterested. Maybe it is confidence?
|3 hours 59 min ago||Yes||
I think it is doable with sensors. The NFL has used a basic sensor in footballs in preseason games for speed, etc..
Not sure if they have the ability to measure in inches. There are a crapload of different kinds of sensors - ultrasound, infared, GPS. It won't be foolproof but why sports has not adopred them in a big way is beyone me. They have GPS chips in golf balls now. I'm guessing if you do not use satellites but something within the stadium itself you could triangulate down to inches.
I'm not an engineer but know a bit about sensors.

Why not put sensors in footballs? In this day and age it would seem simple to put sensors in footballs, pucks, etc and also have something at the goal line, yard marker, etc. If the sensor is past the line it is a first down, touchdown, etc.
I can't figure out why they have not done away with umpires calling balls and strikes with some sort of machine vision. Seems like sensors would be perfect for hockey as you could sense when the puck crossed the goal line even when under a goalie.
Camera's seem archaic compared to sensors. I'm sure they would be glitches but it is worth a try. They have a crap ton of sensors in wearables that might be able to take the human element out of some calls - like targeting to the head for example.

What about Pittsburgh and their Mark "no D" Antonio coach Pat Narduzzi - he of the 60 minutes of "unnecessary roughness"?
He is a big of a prick as Mark "no D" Antonio only with more emotion. His DB's hold on every play then he bitches about it. The his players have a tough time in the NFL because they can't hold on EVERY play.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I am beginning to think||
I am beginning to think a close win is better than a blow out. Wasn't that the gist of Mike Hart's comments? You let them get close and take it away? Now they have more to bitch about and lose sleep over - rather than a blowout. If we had blown them out I was going to print up bumper stickerrs but if a close loss makes them angrier -all the better.

Thought it was pronounced Alabamer
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I think that was "prescription turf"||
I think that was "prescription turf" or some such thing at originated at Purdue. I think that sand/gravel was by design. " The growing medium above the liner is largely sand, which aids in drainage."
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I hate MD||
I hate MD more than any other coach because he as his players have no class - although in BB Tom Crean is a close second. OSU has been kicking our ass for a long time and you don't hear crap like this from them. I've been watching since the late 60's and there are always more in game cheap shots by MSU than OSU. There may be a hate between M and OSU but there is also respect. No respect for MD or MSU given his responses.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Opposite of MSU||
Good point, the exact opposite of what MSU does.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Liked the even handed Drew Sharp commentary||
He may have been a great guy, but you would not know it from his writing.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||How about Bullough?||
How about Bullough? You think MD said one thing to him about those personal fouls before he got ejected? Heck no. Watch how the Spartans tackle - it is crown first, and that has to be taught. No rugby style tackling for them,

Your mom just called she said she needs you to run to the store and pick her up another can of Skoal.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I agree, it is my major worry||
I think 4.5 is too low. I have seen too many MSU/M games for this not to be a pertinent question
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I watch all day||
I guess if you only watch Michigan it does not matter when it starts, but if you love to watch other games - I watch Thursday, Friday and Saturday - you can catch more football with noon games.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I am with you +1||
Noon kicks are better for football watching if you attend the games. You can get home for at least the second half of the 3:30 games. 3:30 may be great for drinking and tailgating but crappy for watching football unless you have an RV with a big screen. a short way away.

|7 weeks 3 days ago||My biggest concern||
My biggest concern is that Sparty will spear and maim because they have nothing to lose. I'll bet you see 5+ targeting plays with 1 or 2 being called.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Ann Arbor Junior High football||
Eons ago I played football in an Ann Arbor Junior High (to you youngsters that was 7th-9th grades). We were allowed to play tackle in 8th and 9th grade. We had 5 footbally teams - lightweight, two middleweight teams, light heavyweight and heavyweight. As a middle weight we scrimaged the lightweights and even a dozen pounds made a difference.
I know the heavyweights would have crushed us even if they only outweighed us by 30+ pounds.

There is a remake coming. Movie is not nearly as creepy as the book, Where the hell does Stephen King come up with this stuff?
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I could see them trot out an option ofense with Damon||
I could see them trot out an option offense with Damon Terry, something that they have not showed all year. Or a spread to run. Something that they have worked on all year, just for the Michigan game.

New verb: Maxwelled as in "O'Connor got maxwelled"
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Coincidence?||
Coincidence? That his brother had the "Sparty Nooooo!" moment by getting the leaping penalty that gave Indiana a second chance at a win?

Egotistical liar? Brandon should have gone in politics, he would fit right in with our choices in November.

But I was the only one I saw nearby. I thought everyone read this blog. How many of you did it at home to your TV?
