1) I think Nolan De Jong has been pretty reliable. Not a Merill or Trouba level of reliability, but a solid player. Seems like Bennett level potential.
2) Totally agree on Hyman. That dude generates a ton of chances.
3) Everyone on this team is Darren Helm*. So many chances but no finish.
*Apologes to Helm, who is on a 40 goal pace since he finally came back from injury.

What are the odds he's just stealing from a blog again?
|3 days 14 hours ago||Well, in a reasonably||
Well, in a reasonably officiated game I'd feel much better because it would be three points.
Never agree to play in Cameron.
|4 days 15 hours ago||Better to win ugly than to||
Better to win ugly than to lose. But Red's going to be pretty pissed with all the turnovers and puck chasing.
|4 days 18 hours ago||He's a national treasure,||
He's a national treasure, even if he did write a phenomally misinformed piece about Tom Brady's origins a few years ago. Because no one in Boston has ever gotten that story right.
|4 days 21 hours ago||He'd have to change the focus||
He'd have to change the focus of his graduate work, no? Isn't the rule that if your current school doesn't offer your desired Master's you can transfer without loss of eligibility?
|5 days 22 hours ago||We did OK last year in||
We did OK last year in Columbus. Wasn't fantastic, but holding them under 400 yards and to two TDs when our offense couldn't do shit all day and turned it over 4 times is fine. We just need the talent + experience, which is getting there.
|5 days 22 hours ago||The simplest answer is 4||
The simplest answer is 4 senior offensive linemen + Miller + Hyde vs. a youthful front 7 that hasn't been tested like that before this year and was missing some key parts. And not enough speed in the secondary to feel safe playing the safeties at the line/cover the constraint plays (or just flat bombs) that Meyer runs.
I'm not 100% that Mattison really understands how to stop spread offenses, but I'm not sure that game is a great indicator for us to look at. Their offense really is terrifying.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Basically:He's sick ad||
He's sick of ad hominen attacks. If you argue with his ideas that's one thing, but increasingly the criticism of his writing is about him and not what he's saying. Or doesn't address what he's actually saying.

And tore his ACL playing soccer, IIRC

If he restores the self-moderation stuff the majority of people who are not spamming stupid bullshit can restore order around here and everyone's experience will improve.
Well, except the trolls.

Chantel Jennings says his foot is in a boot. So yeah. Ridiculous effort.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Lane Kiffin? Really? Did||
Lane Kiffin? Really? Did you see how much his players haaaaaaaaaaaaated him and suddenly played hard when Ed Orgeron took over? And it's not like Ed Orgeron is a good coach.

It's either Yost's teams or never. Good stats are hard to find from that era.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Oh, if Alabama and FSU win||
Oh, if Alabama and FSU win out there's no shot for OSU. The much more interesting question is if Auburn beats Alabama and then beats Mizzou/South Carolina next week.
I feel like 13-0 against this Big Ten is not as impressive as 12-1 Auburn?
|6 days 20 hours ago||Knowing how the media treats||
Knowing how the media treats the SEC, I would definitely not be surprised if Auburn jumped them with a win today.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Was a really good play by||
Was a really good play by OSU's DE, I think. Made Gallon have to throw over the top instead of just back on a line. If he leads him downfield a little...
Of course, if the fucking replay booth gets the fucking call right on Gardner's "fumble" it's an entirely different game.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Pelini getting another year||
Pelini getting another year should makes Borges a little safer, because that OC is someone who worked minor miracles this year.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Didn't have options. Maybe||
Didn't have options. Maybe he can escape to his left and pray to get there. Maybe.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Gardner was great, backs were||
Gardner was great, backs were much better in protecting, interior line got lost on one stunt but was otherwise pretty good in pass protection.
DO THAT MORE
|6 days 20 hours ago||So that's Borges third or||
So that's Borges third or fourth good game in three years. Kudos.
Glad we got the return of aggressive, gambler Brady Hoke. That makes me feel better about things.
If they get that fucking review right...
|6 days 20 hours ago||Really missed Ross and Willie||
Really missed Ross and Willie Henry's going to need to learn technique to beat the kind of talent they've got at Ohio State. He had a rough day, in particular. At least I think. Hard to say considering the comprehensive beatdown they handed our line.
That offense is just generally terrifying though. Bad performance, but not the end of the world.

He ran for Senate in Texas and got like 1% of the primary vote.
|1 week 2 days ago||If you watch the game, the||
If you watch the game, the holes are ridiculous. He's touched within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage like once in the first half.
|1 week 2 days ago||Wow, like 10 seconds for||
Wow, like 10 seconds for Craig James to make me want to punch him. That might be a record, even for that asshole.
|1 week 2 days ago||Are you referring to the MSU||
Are you referring to the MSU game that started our run of success? Because we were like 12-9 when we beat them the first time and 1-6 in conference or something like that. And then got crazy hot.
Because Beilein teams improve, rapidly.
|1 week 2 days ago||Not for nothing, but Duke||
Not for nothing, but Duke should have lost to Vermont at home. They suck at defense. Like, GERG Borges kinds of sucking.
|1 week 3 days ago||It's much closer to 4-7, with||
It's much closer to 4-7, with two losses about as embarrassing as the one Florida suffered.
|1 week 3 days ago||Good coaches do two things as||
Good coaches do two things as far as the players currently on the team:
1) Put them in a position to succeed.
2) Coach 'em up, to borrow a cliche. You should see players getting better as a season/their careers progress.
Now on defense, we generally see both of those, and when they fail at #1, like that fourth down where we were playing stupidly far off, Mattison says that's his fault and points to specifics. But mostly guys are put in a position where they can do well, and you almost always see guys getting better (aka the Heininger Certainty Principle, but also, say, Raymon Taylor or JT Floyd going from Worse than Johnny Sears to serviceable but not athletic enough to stay with the real stud WRs).
This does not happen on offense. I can't think of anyone who left better than when Hoke/Borges arrived. And they're not put in position to succeed, and Borges doesn't admit error easily.

Don't you think that if he wanted to be a head coach he would have been one by now? Seems like a dude who just wants to be a DC.
