|1 year 10 weeks ago||Jibreel Black||
Frank Clark is a fine choice, but Jibreel Black played an outstanding 2nd half. Forced the fumble that Clark picked up..a couple of sacks/pressures..Granted one was just a break down in the blocking scheme by Penn St. But I'm going to guess, based on UFR, that he was the best player on the field for Michigan Sat.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||I looked here||
Maybe I'm wrong..
2s play in Dayton, Philly, Lexington, KC?
edit: Nevermind, I see the seeds aren't locked into cities
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Agreed with the 2 or 3 seed..||
Not much difference. Almost would rather see them be a 3 seed, so they play in Auburn Hills? Well, a 50% chance of that, if a 3 seed.
And teams like UCLA and VCU as 6 seeds do not worry me, as I've seen UCLA play numerous times and think they are thrash. VCU, a team I believe you mentioned as someone dependent on turnovers.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||No, it doesn't||
What it means is MIchigan needs to spend tomorrow and wednesday fixing the pick and roll defense. They have today off. I like the hedging, but the book is out with how to attack. Thank god they have this 'mini-camp' to address the rotations.
With the 1-3-1, Penn St found those 2 wide open corner 3s that kept the game from going into 10+ territory. Sure, Vogrich had an error. But to run 1-3-1 half the game is not a long term solution.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||You don't see it?||
It says 'swag'
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Ugh..||
I agree with that second half of Illinois and Michigan St. How many 2nd half fouls did (or did they?) Illinois commit? I really don't remember many Mich St possesions where a foul wasn't committed.
A little worrisome after watching last weeks Illinois second half vs Michigan. The refs were calling a lot of the hard hedges on McGary and Horford (some legit). Bielfeldt's (if needed ) foot speed vs Zeller is an obvious concern.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Hardaway||
The one area Hardaway Jr still needs improvement is the handle. I don't know if it is an easy fix, but there seems to be a common attack on the ball when he starts to dribble. Either he is showing the ball to the defender too much or is just not a very good handler or his awareness of defenders around him are below average?
|2 years 6 days ago||Most and Least Variable||
You mention: "You can't guarantee success with folks as variable as OL"
What has the most variability and least on offense? Curious, because I don't know.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||The kid likes talking about himself..||
Lots of starting the sentence off with 'I'. Actually, every sentence starts with 'I'. Sounds like a great kid. May need to work on his writing skills, though.
|2 years 44 weeks ago||Nothing on campus||
There's nothing on campus to see. Brathaus is the local bar I used to go quite often. Really a dive bar.
|2 years 44 weeks ago||Trotters||
Lived in BG for the first 23 years. If you have't been to Trotters, you're really missing out. 5-10 min drive from the Ice Arena.
All you need to get there is the Brown Jug. Steak. It's located downtown on the west side of Main St., just north of Wooster. Tiny place, been there for as long as I remember (born in 73).
If you go to places like Jed's or SamBs, you're doing it wrong. Also, avoid the places you will see after you exit I-75.
If you do want pizza, Myles or Pollyeyes are the places to go.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Cespedes||
Cespedes wasn't going to leadoff anyway. Though you are correct that Jackson in the #1 hole is scary. He's a bottom 3rd of the lineup hitter until he cuts down on the Ks and increases his on-base skills.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Doesn't make sense||
That doesn't really make sense. Kosuke is a totally different player. Doesn't have the power Cespedes has. Fukudome is a contact, on-base player. Cepedes is a big swing, big power, big strikeouts type of hitter.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Actually||
The word is that he wanted to be a free agent in 4 years and the Marlins wanted him to sign to a 6 year deal. The money amount was the same (36 million).
|2 years 47 weeks ago||Mystery Guy||
Is the #mysteryguy the same as #mysteryteam? Because we all know the mystery team wins (Pujols, Fielder). Very Jon Heyman of you, Brian.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Add on to the Groping||
Brian, curious to see your UFR opinion on the Denard INT in Koger's direction. If you want to put some blame on the INT, Koger needs to be credited for at least half. He ran the route beyond the first down line (which is fine). But as Denard released the ball, you will see him basically continuing his route towards the direction of the end zone.
The goal of that play was to move the sticks, not see if he can break it for long yardage. Obviously, that would be fine too. But what he should have done is use his body to box out the trailing LB. Or at least come back to the ball. -.5 to Koger, in my opinion.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Don't forget||
I believe Russell Shaw went the JC route before Michigan
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Garrard not an option||
He is having back surgery to repair disc issue
|3 years 10 weeks ago||This:||
"They played zero coverage on Roy Roundtree and he went for whatever that was for a touchdown on a slant. If we run a couple more slant routes maybe more pure or better, and we may have had another one.”
Brian touched on it earlier today, but some of the plays/routes where the WRs were 20-30 yards from line of scrimmage didn't make sense, especially with the weather conditions. Needed to have more hot routes to exploit the CB and LB blitzes.
“No. I liked the play. If we execute the play, Koger’s in the endzone. We don’t make a block that we need to make, and that’s part of it."
That one was on Brandon Moore.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Craig Roh||
With an edge rush strip of the ball deep in Spartan territory. Whether that sets up the winning score or prevents MSU from driving down the field late in the game.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Some of these questions...||
Jeez. "You’re playing them a little later in the year than you have in the past. Does that extra couple weeks of cushion make a difference in preparation?"
If that person asking the question would do some research, this year's games are about in the middle of when they usually play.
Is it better to play rivals at the beginning of the year or the end of the year?
Huh? A strange question.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Honest question||
Very minor issue/question here. Does Denard play it safe and wait for Hopkins to turn his head to the LOS before throwing it or should he throw it sooner? Hopkins turns his head at around the 27 yard mark, the ball isn't released until he reaches the 31. Just thinking the sooner it gets to Stephen, the more he can possibly gain with YAC.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Is Brian getting grey hair?||
Or is it the pixels? And is it gray or grey? And why do I care if Brian has gray or grey or hair?
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Well, that's silly||
That's a silly statement by whomever that person is. Obviously, it would be nice to NOT see Denard get hurt, forcing him to leave the game for a period of time, but this is the backup QB. For 2011 the coaching staff HAS to be happy to have Devin as the backup. The guy can speculate all he wants, but he loses creditibilty from me.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Nobody cares about how good or..||
Just FYI, nobody really cares about the good or bad luck of your fantasy football team. Just sayin. It's similar to the people who complain about the bad beat in poker.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Will continue until||
Unfortunately, unless Roh and Black can find a way to pressure the QB, the blitz seems to be the only way to pressure the QB into hurried throws/mistakes.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||3, 4, 5, does it really matter?||
I really wish this whole star system goes away at some point. Obviously, it doesn't really matter what the kid gets. Seems like the kid has decent straight line speed.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||The best||
Thanks for that. Been on a SRV kick lately.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||I don't think that is correct||
That info seems to be spreading quickly. Sure wasn't shown in Back to the Future I:
