Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through

- I live about 6 miles from work and it took me close to 7 hours to get home. I fiinally had to park my car in a subdivision about a mile from my house and walk the remaining route last night.
- Media is saying that when the snow started around noon or so, the temp was right around freezing and quickly dropped which caused everything to ice over.
- In addition, all of the schools announced mid-day that they were closing early...which means parents have to leave early to get the kids...and it snowballed from there. I saw one headline that said "this is what happens when 5.5 million people all get released and hit the streets in about 90 minutes."
- Once that happened, the salt trucks were rendered useless because they couldn't get around.
- Per the commenter above, Atlanta is very hilly. I found out last night that the cause of the delay on my route was a Coke truck that couldn't make it up the hill started sliding backwards and then jack-knifed.

|14 weeks 2 days ago||Magnus - Do you think he changes OL coaches?||
I am just curious. I wonder how much of it was Funk's coaching and how much of it was Borges' predictable play calling? I mean, no matter how technically sound (or unsound) our offensive linemen are, no "technique" is going to be able to overcome a defense that practically knew what play we were going to run based upon our formation. Again, I am no expert and would love to hear more informed opinions on the subject.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||This is an interesting point....||
Michigan had a number of kids from LA, TX & Big 12 country in the early to mid-nineties because LSU (Hallman & DiNardo years), OK (Gibbs, Schnellenberger, Blake years), & TX(McWilliams, Makovic years) were all having down periods AT THE SAME TIME. There was roughly a 12 year period ('87 - '99) where all 3 schools were floundering simultaneously. That all changed when LSU hired Saban (2000), OK hired Stoops (1999) and TX hired Brown (1998). I would bet that many of those kids would have stayed south if OK, TX, & LSU were performing better on the field.

|23 weeks 5 days ago||I have a serious question and bring this up....||
because I have no expertise on offensive line play. What were some of the comments? The reason I ask is I am absolutely stunned (like all of us) at how bad this line is? Is it OL coaching? Talent? Offensive scheme? Lack of the depth and the 2 years RR recruited a total of 1 OL player coming back to haunt us? What is more perplexing is that the line wasn't this crappy the last 2 years. Is it the fact that we have no semblance of a coherent offensive game plan that hurts the OL performance?

|26 weeks 3 days ago||So I have a question about this......||
Borges prefers the West Coast type of offense. He's even written a book about it. Isn't the pass supposed to be used to open up the run? The stubbornness is mind-boggling. Is there a possibility that Hoke has dictated to Al what he wants to run even though Borges may want to do something different? I know this might sound far fetched, but I am still trying to comprehend our futility on offense and the obstinate refusal to try anything different. Just a thought.

he buries the LB charging up the field. Should Fitz have bumped it a little more to the outside? It almost looks like he cut it back into traffic. He may have had more room by cutting it outside after he got past the other LB that came up to fill.

|36 weeks 3 days ago||Keep in Mind That He is Not A Statue Back There Like Mallet.....||
The kid played tailback the beginning of his high school career. I am not saying he is made of Dilithium, but he does have enough speed and escapability to make defensive lines pay if they pin their ears back and don't stay in their lanes. That is a huge difference when comparing him to Mallet.

won't release him from his LOI, are they able to sign someone else or does it count against their scholarship limit?
|50 weeks 4 days ago||Definitely Agree, but what I haven't seen mentioned is||
the 85 man scholarship limit. Remember, back when Bo was coaching they had 105 scholarships until 1978. From 1978 to 1992 they had 95; from 1992-1994 they reduced that number down to 85.

For this game and the way he played today!
|1 year 8 weeks ago||One Could Also argue...||
that Saban started the whole ESSS EEE SEEE revival when he first got to LSU. If you look at old interviews when he first got there, he came out and said the first thing he knew he needed to do was "re-vamp the recruiting strategy" and overhaul the roster. His dubious roster management techniques were duplicated at other SEC West schools and it literally has been an "arms race" ever since.

Our H.S. team this year has the # 1 or #2 rated RB in the state (depending on the rankings) and a high 3*/low 4* QB both committed to Alabama. In addition, there are 3-4 linemen that have committed to play at Georgia, Tennessee and other D-1 Schools.
As the OP said, there is no off-season and even middle school students are "highl encouraged" to attend off-season conditioning.

this should be a new MGOShirt or next season
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Agreed....||
any sort of capable competition is good. It will be interesting to see where the trade-off lies. We might not get 10-15 channels for $30, but would you pay $50 or $55 for 200, 250, or 300 channels?
|1 year 15 weeks ago||I apologize in advance for this question..||
I was traveling and only caught the second half of the game....but, where was Demens? Did he get injured? I didn't see him in there.

Which one would we prefer or think has better upside?

still wonder how things would have turned out if Martin redshirted his freshman year and was playing on this team. In addition, it is too bad Roh and BWC weren't redhirted their freshman year so they could be back next year to anchor the line. I still cringe when I think about BWC burning his redshirt on the extra point team.

|1 year 23 weeks ago||We can say all we want about Smith's..||
inside running ability, but he is one hell of a blocker. On the last pass to Dileo, he got a great block on the blitzing backer. If he doesn't, Gardner is toast and there is no way he is able to pass the ball. I will miss his toughness next year!
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Cool...||
thanks for the info. -- I never played defense so I wouldn't know how to evaluate what is or isn't "technically correct"about his play. I just know that I see him flying around making plays!
