Mitch McGary didn't get any better when the tournament came around? Respectfully disagree.

Name: I thought it was a funny and stupid thing when I was a kid playing Perfect Dark for N64 with my friends.
Avatar: I graduated from Michigan for undergrad, but I'm finishing up my first year as a PhD student at Ohio State, hence evil Anakin Skywalker with the Buckeye eyes.

I had the greatest moment of my athletic life as a coach, not as an athlete:
In my last year as an assistant wrestling coach, our team made it to the regional finals against a rival team. The dual mostly went as planned, except for a couple dominos falling down the wrong way, making it look like we would be eliminated. In the last match of the night, our 125-pound freshman first-year wrestler was up against a state-ranked kid. Our kid was very athletic, but didn't really know what he was doing. Unfortunately, that's not usually a good situation in wrestling. Anyway, he wrestled the match of his life and secured us a 2 point victory to send us to the state tournament. The previous year we had beaten the same team in a similar close manner, and those two duals probably resulted in more adrenaline than I've ever experienced before.

I think it's hard to deny that he is a crazy person. I like him, but he is cray cray. Ever watched him on the sideline?

Where can I sign my kid up for the 4th grade coal mining team?

This is where I'm at. I love watching football. It is by far the most entertaining sport IMO. With that said, I am starting to feel guilty about it as more and more evidence piles up, and I think that society will benefit as its importance decreases.

Did the guy who got 23,000 MgoPoints in a little over a year by constantly posting on a message board just call me a neckbeard? Also, nothing about my comment had anything to do with the masculinity of a 17 y/o.

Every time this issue comes up, people like you question the masculinity or toughness of people who give a shit about high school kids who got deceived by grown men. Eat shit.

I made this early in the Hoke tenure when we were dominating in-state recruiting. Ah, innocence...

I'll be utilizing my OSU student ticket to wear Michigan gear in the student section.

Nice job mocking high school kids. Up top!

I remember very few returns period. It was pretty remarkable after last year.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||The 91st in net punting comes||
The 91st in net punting comes from frequently winning the field position battle and having a punter with a bunch of 30-yard punts that dropped opponents within the 5. O'Neill's punting was outstanding, and for that reason we called upon him to pin opponents deep at times when other teams wouldn't have used a punter. Any metric that has us bad at punting is a very flawed metric.
31st in punt returns puts us in the top quarter.
Punt return defense gave up several big plays. No argument there.
T-61st in punt blocks allowed. Is that one punt block allowed, or two? Sample sizes matter.
48th in return defense puts us close to the top third of the nation. Not great, but not bad.

#12 special team efficiency on ESPN and #16 according to FEI after last year's debacle is better than mediocre.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||I don't see the big deal.||
I don't see the big deal. It's not that abnormal for a historically awful program under the leadership of a coach with one year of D-1 head coaching experience prior to Ole Miss to suddenly start pulling top classes out of nowhere. Nothing suspicious about that at all.

That Sept 17 game at Oklahoma could be a doozy for OSU next year for this reason.

As a current grad student at OSU, we are not on trimesters. Classes started about the same time as they did at Michigan.

People who root for Ohio State are likely people just like us, except they grew up in Ohio. They are fans of a university. That doesn't make them immoral, subhuman, etc. Grow up.

That Michigan fan is being an annoying turd to another human being for no reason. Perspective.

|16 weeks 6 days ago||Returning 6 total starters||
Returning 6 total starters would have put them at #127 in the country this year on Phil Steele's list of teams by returning starters. I wonder if anyone else is going pro.

If we look at the numbers, Shane was never really that good at actual football. All of his accolades came from camp performances and arm strength.

I believe they lose 2 RS seniors, but they also lose Sudfeld. If they don't get a grad transfer, the QB situation does not look very good for them next year.

IMO just about any DC would have seen a significant dropoff with the massive personnel changes. Stanford returned three total starters on defense. With that said, I would prefer Aranda because of his more impressive track record.
