the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

- It is the pinnacle of both trendiness and comfort
- DE stays home to cover QB, QB gives. That, in essense, means that every player on the defense is matched with an offensive player. If you can account for blocks holding, that leaves the RB and the safety as the last "pair". That is a preferable matchup.
- DE crashes down the line, QB keeps, he is likely paired up with a LB, or also likely a safety.

Campus, from what I hear since I have moved away, is getting rough... Thuggish. OSU students are fine so long as you don't announce you are a Michigan fan (but if you have someone 1 on 1 they are usually ok).
Overall, not a bad place to live in the least, and I know it is doing well economically. Plenty to do, cool places to see... My speech is called "Go For It".

Heh, that picture was about 20 yards from where I was tailgating. I even remember the fan in the photo. Also, Brock Mealer was at my tailgate, but I was too shy to say anything other than "if any of these OSU clowns give you trouble, let me know. I got your back." to him. * 100% Certified Cool Bro Story™*

Is it just me or does the third picture (the one of the flying car) actually look like a video game?

Wow, that was a lot to read. I made it thru almost all of it, and its hard to get a feel for what to think. Couple of thoughts
1. Asshole coaches are straight up no fun. There's a difference between being tough and challenging, and being a dick. Sounds like kill could be the latter?
either way, tough way to go. I might have to follow this to see if there's any response or fallout.

I didn't even think collar bone when he hit, but that is a good point. I broke 3 bones when I played (including a pretty nasty broken arm), but the collar bone was by far the most painful.
|29 weeks 6 days ago||I agree about clock||
I agree about clock management.
I will also say that I want to see someone else get some carries at RB. I love V.Smith in certain situations, but I will literally pull my hair out if I watch Toussaint get pulled down by many more pussy arm tackles. Just a few carries for Rawls, pleeeease.
Otherwise, Ryan was a beast, as per ushhhh. I have little faith in Roh... I am sure he does some things that are good and I don't notice, but otherwise most times I see him shooting into places that open holes in our defense, or getting ridden out of a play.
My own personal performance I would rank as a C-. I didn't put my jersey on until second half, which is a big no-no, plus I totally mentally jinxed us a couple times (particularly their fake punt and Hagerup's shank... Sorry guys).
Lastly, Gibbons has earned 72 brunettes in his afterlife, and also DILEOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
|29 weeks 6 days ago||I am super curious as to what||
I am super curious as to what this injury was... It was a hard fall at full speed, but he did not seem to lose conciousness, at least from what I saw (he moved his arm after hitting, and most guys who lose conciousness like that seem to have muscle lock). My initial guess was a hip injury, or more likely a lower back vertebrae issue. Either would be terrible for a player with his talent, rival or not.
Anyway, I wish him the best. I will never hope a player any physical harm, but I sure as hell hope we kick his buckeye ass on the field.

I have to agree with regards to the DLine. I think this was their best performance, and BY FAR Roh's best game. I think he was finally disruptive and there to make the plays he had to (and those he didn't but you hope he does). Great day for Michigan, all around.
I also agree that Toussaint's issues are not all on him, but I would like to at least give "Bowling Ball" Rawl(s) a shot before garbage time, just to be sure.

Kind of my point, lost in there somewhere. The meltdown around MGoBlog affects all of us, but differently.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||The glaring thing is from||
The glaring thing is from reading these things you've written, it's pretty obvious your level of knowledge is below Brian's.
Please, address my where my lack of knowledge is rather than attack it so I may respond (likely tomorrow, last post for night... work, blah. This is way more enjoyable).
1) It implies Smith is a better runner than Denard and Denard only gets his yards off constraint plays. That is ludicrous.
2) Denard got most of his yards off scrambles/improvisation in this game and not runs. So I'm not even sure where you're getting this point from.
3) The constraint thing is just not even true. What was the defense cheating against exactly?
Not sure where I said or implied any of this. I merely stated that Alabama was a more talented team that was highly disciplined...
This is yet another example of a statement that is kind of crazy. Also, your whole premise for this statement was that Alabama was bigger & faster and THAT'S why it didn't work, and therefore that's why it doesn't work in the NFL... Um, in the NFL the teams are pretty much equals.
My point was the read option makes up for a lack of talent vs opposition to an extent. There are some occasions where it simply cannot due to the nature of the opposition, in situations where the defense if both athletic/talented AND disciplined, like an NFL team.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Clarification should have||
Clarification should have ensued, but what I meant was that what I find typically follows is that giving Denard the ball more often would have changed the outcome. You're right, though.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||I think we are talking about||
I think we are talking about different things. By "11 on 11" I meant that the QB is in play as a threat on the play. Of course the option is designed to remove a player from contention of making the play, but you are choosing a different route, essentially. Either way, the defense has 11 players in the play every play, whereas the offense typically has only 10 on a run (especially with the piss-poor bootleg sells going on these days). What I am trying to say is that the option lets you select, to some extent, how the defensive players match up with the offensive players. Two simple examples:
Your chances of reaching second level are much higher.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||I see, and you could be||
I see, and you could be correct about the guard pulling (I likely missed that if it happened), but the basics of a zone read are the same in that the QB has a key, just like a standard option, and it is possible they switched that key to account for the pulling guard. Also maybe not.
Regardless, expecting a QB to make multiple reads before deciding to keep or hand off the ball is illogical, when making multiple reads when passing the ball can be difficult enough, and you are reading two positions that are at the same time reading your play.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Oh man, it really was||
Oh man, it really was great.
Haha thanks for the humor. Disjointed thoughts are a result of my own fatigue, and there was much more clarification I could have/should have done, but already tl;dr.

I only posted this because I think a number of people would agree on me. If this was unoriginal content, I would have posted it in one of the numerous other threads, but more likely not at all. Yes, this is about me disagreeing with Brian, but I think many people agree with it and like to see their opinion expressed, even if through someone else. I don't think suppressing an opposing view is constructive.
