IIRC, Ohio seemed ready for this and had Miller audible at the line. They then proceeded to call a quarterback draw/run from the package, which always seemed to get a first down. I don't know how many times this actually happened; it seems like a lot in hindsight but may have only been a couple times. Typically I love the Okie package but once Miller blew it up a couple times I was changing my tune for that game.

Tell a doctor that only IV dilaudid works for your pain and you will get a lot of eye rolls (not to your face). That's classic for drug abusers. Not calling you one, after surgery you should be getting IV meds anyway, but just FYI.

See it all the time when people are driving and the defender is matching him, then at the basket the driver will jump straight into the guy and get the foul.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Completely agree||
The offense already has a lot of advantage in basketball. A good slasher type will take it right into a defender and a charge is his only recourse. Sure it may be over called a bit, but personally I like the call a lot.

Lots of Dutchmen from South Dakota, yours truly included. If you ain't Dutch, you ain't much.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||I don't think they are||
I don't think they are anything like Wisconsin in their style of play. They like to play uptempo. As for Wolters' shot, his jump shot does come off a little low, but it hasn't seemed to be an issue, probably because of his quick release, and when he drives his floaters are very difficult to block, even for big men.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||I went to SDSU for undergrad||
I went to SDSU for undergrad and Michigan for grad school and have watched a lot of both teams. Michigan should win easily IMO but they could get in trouble if SDSU gets hot from 3 (probably can say that about most teams, but SDSU has the tools to do it). I see the biggest challenge for Michigan being guarding the 3 off of pick and rolls. Michigan likes the hard hedge and that has a tendency to leave bigs open for 3, which SDSU enjoys, and Wolters loves assisting on. Also, Fiegen, though not a 3 point shooter, has a good 15 foot jump shot which he often gets open for in the same situation.
Wolters will be called on to score a lot and obviously can. He hits shots which look ridiculous like running floaters on top of being a great spot up shooter. He isn't all that quick but at 6' 4" can get those shots off over most anyone. He also protects the ball well and I don't see Burke getting his typical steals on him.
I see Burke and Wolters both scoring a lot but Michigan just out-athleticizing (athleticing? athleting? San Diegoans?) them. But I would not be surprised if SDSU hangs around with them. I was picking SDSU for an upset before they got Michigan and now I have to cheer for both teams, or no team, which is just turrible. Luckily for Michigan this is in Auburn Hills, because Jackrabbit fans travel well and could have turned many sites outside Michigan into a road game for Michigan.
