corners did need to be exposed, but in the correct manner. having denard in the pocket with 7 rushing and getting in denards face while he throws off balance is not the way.
denard needed to be under center with a 2 step drop throwing to a wide open wr on a quick out. the ND corners were 10-12 yds off the line on almost every play. let our guy make a play one on one with their guy. our guy wins it's a great pick up, their guy wins it's still a positive play of 5-6 yds. MSU beat our heads in with this under RR. it works USE it!

wonder if he has the build to bulk into a sure handed TE?

who's side are you on? "if/when LC ever issues a statement" . thats the one thing that could take care of the whole mess. just have the most "Saintly" of all fucking college coaches ever" just issue a statement that he backs RR and the Mi. football team and a lot of this stuff will go away. to sit quietly at home and letting your name get used as a way to sabatage your schools program and team? and not say anything? thats just shit LC!
|5 years 19 weeks ago||no probably||
probably wouldn't have believed him either, although i might if he answered straight the first time and seemed credible. as for creepy. what i think is creepy is a guy spending time answering posts with whatever stupid shit comes out of his mouth and believes he is being either funny and cute.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||nope||
not really cuz just because you've now taken your meds and seemed to have calmed a bit, you're just making shit up. which is why in the post i asked for helpful insight. hoping to keep posts that have nothing to do with the topic to a minimum but i guess i asked for too much from the mgocommunity. my mistake, carry on all.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||did you forget to take your meds dave?||
don't remember asking for a minute by minute break down. there have been numerous threads talking about them being "gym rats" work-out warriors" etc. i have not heard about film study so i asked. as for your question i do not know what is normal either but i do know i do want some time spent there.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||yes!||
it really does matter to me personally. i want a smart QB back there reading the defenses and just chewing them up for yards and TDs. i would think that that would matter to all of us.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||very true||
+1 to seth. as i have been saying to my friends. i'd love to see an after signing day grading scale kinda like what the NFL has done. they evaluate the draft based on need and pick-ups. we needed a lot and got a lot.while i think ours was a very good class based on need and lack of depth. i will take exception to the fact that osu had a good class also. let's look at a few facts, osu has beaten us for quite a few years, been co or outright big 10 champs the last 4 or so yrs, just won the rose bowl, and this was the best they could do? we on the other hand have gone 3-9 and 5-7 and have pulled this kind of class, needs or no needs. if we can manage a 8-4 season with a good bowl game(win or lose) the recruiting of RR will soon put the big 10 championship in our hands more years than not.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||don't know about you!||
but i never forget about mike cox.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||ok mango66||
i understand your concern that maybe we used to "pull" in nothing but 5-4* star recruits. but go look at past yrs with Carr. nothing really great the last 5yrs. also i might ask "what did all these 5-4* fantastic recruits do for us"? that's right NOTHING! pull your head out of your ass and let RR recruit "his" guys and actually give him time to coach them. if at the end of 5 yrs we havn't done any better with RR i'll help you pack his bags and send him on his way, but for now stop whinning!
|5 years 27 weeks ago||true||
all the ncaa(well i'm sure not all) would have to institute is "that if a school where said recruit has previously signed a NLI early. if that school then changes head coaches before the normal NLI day. then recruit can request out of the early NLI with-out penalty. if coaching changes after normal NLI day then all previous rules about recruiting still apply" thank you for your cooperation.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||well i would agree magnus||
except that it isn't the "school" that produces 1st round talent after 1st round talent. i believe that that has to be put in some part(ok mostly) on the coaches. those coaches are gone(sneaky pete). while lane so far has not shown that same ability as a HC to get the talent to the next level. Tenn IMO under-achieved for the talent level he had.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||recruiting sites||
has anyone ever tried to go back 3-4 yrs and evaluate the sites predictions to see who is the most credible site? instead of just complaining about them. sorry i'm to damn poor to have paid subscriptions and i really don't have the patience to figure it all out.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||agreed||
i'll take RRs and his staffs word over the recruiting sites who only see tape. plus a big problem was all of our early commits. when scout or rivals recieve 5000 highlights of kids and review those commits early and place them somewhere in the top 250 then see the others later, those first reviewed tend to drop as they are not fresh in their minds(Devin) as the ones just reviewed.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||i agree BBR||
i also think that 2 losing seasons caused RR to think that findinf recruits willing to commit was gonna be a lil tougher, and offered too quickly and often. but here's to a great close on the recruiting season, a winning record, and our picks of the 2011 athletes.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||sorry!||
sorry lil baby impaler! still don't quite get the whole hoopla thing over rushing the court. it's not like it happens all the time. we got excited and worked up over a great athletic win. so what's really the problem? other than being one of the few posters who just like to say crazy shit just to see how many negbangs they can get. i think Dantonio is on the phone for you, thats up his alley.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||any one else?||
any one else but me thinking that a kid 6'6" and only 200-205 running a 4.6 40 hoping to bulk up, can't get barwisized and stay at 200 and drop a few ticks off his 40 and be a tall gifted very physical wr?
|5 years 27 weeks ago||permanant rivalries||
so we are giving up the best and most storied rivalry in college football? how isn't OSU-Mich a permanant?
|5 years 27 weeks ago||WOW||
i bet that car is worth a lot of money! the IROC Z is a chevy while the Trans Am is the pontiac cousin. but i guess who cares i just drank too much beer and decided to be anal about car models instead of making a decent try at actually commenting on the posts topic.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||tate and devins redshirt||
"if at any point he's our best QB option we are in trouble" Not so sure this is a bad thing.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||stronger big 10?||
i'm not real sure how to assess the bowl season, as it relates to big 10 regular season. did the big 10 suck when we were getting our asses spanked in the bowls? of course not. there were all the excuses about the long lay-offs. well maybe, just maybe, we finally used that long lay-off the actually prepare for some of the games. or maybe this year just happened to have better match-ups in terms talent and schemes. while i was very impressed by the play of our big 10 brothers in the bowls, i'm not real sure if we can use it to say how good(or bad) the regular season will be.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||all on defense?||
am i missing something? while our defense "blew" quite a bit. our offense with a beat up tate and an ineffective DR who hasn't shown the ability to throw well. i just wonder how much can really be blamed on our defense. i mean as far as everything hinging on our defense. tate not banged up, DR a better passer and our defense hardly ever sees the field to suck at, right?
|5 years 29 weeks ago||thank you!||
this is exactly why i come to mgoblog because they have so many paid top college athlete evaluators that i no longer need to trust in RR and his staff or any of the others. mgoblog people are the best.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||guess i was sleeping||
guess i was sleeping through all the holiday(and previous) posts. i missed all the "DG must start and TF and DR are now garbage" posts. the posts that i've seen have been that we really need to redshirt him. his size and talent is great but he really needs a year to get ready for the college game. Tate will be fine this year. although what i really hope is that DG is good enough to move into a back-up role, hoping Tate stays healthy and we can move DR into a percy harvin death machine to opposing defenses.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||missing the point!||
IMHO you guys are missing the point(or at least part of the point) if OSU always gets kids to high draft picks, juniors or seniors, regardless of what they actually do in the NFL. it is a huge recruiting factor for kids who look at an education as secondary thing when going to a college. kids just want to go to the NFL and colleges that do that on a regular basis have a better shot at commitments.
|5 years 30 weeks ago||totally agree||
i totally agree with Luginbill, but unfortunately he isn't the arbitor of RR's future. i hope the new AD is mindfull of the time it takes to completely tear down one type of system and install another. Luginbill and us fans might know that RR needs at least 4yrs, but it's not up to us.
|5 years 31 weeks ago||really!?||
you? being the one. we were all in breathless anticipation.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||star rankings!||
are we evaluating our recruits on their talent or their star rankings before giving out your "grade"? just wondering since the recruiting services(as has been overly discussed here) grade based on more of a pro set and we obviously run a spread our stars aren't gonna be there.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||funny||
+ 100 to you sir! just made me fall out of my chair! i just wonder if all those tutors Hankins was talking about isn't coloring their paperwork for them.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||balance||
while your overall thoughts may be correct. i think the problem occurs from the belief(mine and obviously others) that while a nebraska might once in a while provide a great game for texas. the weaker division is nothing but a whipping boy for the other and that is never any good. i say somehow use a very complicated system based on the last 15 yrs and divide the conf. based on strength of team. that way each conference has a shot every yr not just that once in a blue moon that someone other than Mi, OSU, Penn. have a remote shot.
