|18 hours 57 min ago||It's a noun||
Chode (or more commonly as I've seen it, "choad") is a noun, not an adjective.

You want the point where we lost the game (or lost the chance to the definitely win the game), it's right here. Up 1, yes there are three guys around him but Spike is right next to him, you at least try to make that pass, and in all likelihood it's either a completed pass and Spike is going to the line, or it's deflected out of bounds.
I assume Donnal just sort of froze in the moment, saying to himself "Just don't turn it over, just don't turn it over..." Which of course is right, but the next evolution as a successful college basketball player is "don't turn it over and get it to a good FT shooter, don't turn it over and get it to a good FT shooter..."

I mean, I guess it's not a separate thread, but
|5 days 3 hours ago||Can someone explain to me||
why pumpkin ales are becoming ubiquitous?? It seems inexplicable that every brewery thinks this is a necessary part of their lineups these days.
I can only assume this is further penetration of the Pumpkin Spice Latte-ification of America.
|1 week 21 hours ago||I'm confused||
Why would you feel much better about the next games if we're playing teams that are no longer ranked and the games become must win?
SMU and Syracuse are however good they are, the ranking has no impact on the actual team you play on the floor so the game is no easier or harder now that they've lost. So wouldn't we all want them to win as many games as possible other than the game against us?
|1 week 21 hours ago||Only one other player is in the 40/20 club||
Or you could say Ronde Barber is the only one with 40 INTs and 25 Sacks, and Woodson is now 5 sacks away from that.
|1 week 1 day ago||Odds don't necessarily equate to likelihood||
These odds don't necessarily mean that these are the most likely things to happen. Stoops and Gundy are the equivalent of a "public" team. People who don't know shit about the specifics of the coaching search will put money on those guys because they know the name, and the more money on them, the lower the odds from the casino so the casino doesn't take a bath if it does hit.
Point being, just because Stoops has the lowest odds, doesn't mean anyone anywhere actually thinks that's the most likely thing to happen.
|1 week 3 days ago||He||
He worked a very long time for ESPN which is where he "made" his name, and probably only moved within the last couple years.
Not saying someone should be disliked because they work for ESPN, but it's also the launching point for the shouting-contrarian-views-as-loud-as-possible "journalism" so the stigma isn't undeserved
|1 week 5 days ago||Actually||
I think it was actually Curly Bill who says that
|2 weeks 5 days ago||That's an oversimplication||
What a team needs to be championship caliber are really GOOD players at skill positions. And really good players have speed. But they also have strength. And agility. And smarts. And knowledge of the position (vision for RBs, routes for WRs, reads for QBs).
The point that you're making is really that MICH needs BETTER skill players generally to be a championship team. And I'd agree with that. But that's not just about speed, it's about a variety of deficiencies that 99% of players have, and it's the reason why MICH is not a championship caliber team.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Underwood?||
David Underwood? Or are you really referring to David Overstreet, who I did not see play but I can guess was probably pretty fast.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||This is all a bogus premise||
It's not like MICH is turning down the fast guys who go to OSU/Oregon/LSU/etc.
Ezekiel Elliot was a top 100 4-star, you don't just elect to take a recruit like that, he has to choose you. On the flip-side, MICH is not going to decline Derrick Green's commitment because he doesn't run 4.4. MICH gets the best players they can, they have plenty of very talented players, both big and fast (enough).
This isn't about finding faster guys or bigger guys. None of that matters if your coaches can't teach them how to play football.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Or like||
De'veon Smith and Drake Johnson?
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Maybe because||
there is zero evidence here. An anonymous post on a gambling website lists a bunch of games that a UAB player has bet on.
That's it, that's the end of the inquiry at this point.
JW is an immature guy at the least, and a rapist at the worst, and I don't think much of him, but come on. A single football player, even QB, doesn't have enough control over a football game to be confident that he could botch a half of football and just expect to come back from down by 21 on the road to a ranked team.
There's a whole hell of a lot of risk that you don't come back in that game. He's going to get way more mileage than $5500 by being a two-time national championship QB.

change the meaning of a term and assume it's not an insult just because you ignore the source material
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I hate to raise this||
I really do, I don't want to get down on anyone and I hope DJ is the answer, but....
Can we see JUST a bit more than a single second half performance against a team that is over 100th in defensive FEI after the game is already in hand? I really don't think the performance is all that meaningful other than proving that he is in fact fast (which is good, but ony one part of what makes a good RB).
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Eff this||
This is literally a cut and paste from the official mgoblue.com website. For example, see the use of parentheses around "N.H." for Duncan Robinson, but the use of brackets around "N.H." for Aubrey Dawkins
Please ban this self-promoting bullshit.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||AD search targets||
I'm not sure this is the point of the post, but I think there's at least something to be said for recognizing that, while the coaching search might wind up overly ambitious in terms of the targets because the football program is not as high caliber as fans would like to believe, the job overseeing the Athletic Department as a whole is in the top tier of 5 or so schools in the country. A football coach may not consider moving from Arkansas to Michigan a step up, but an athletic director certainly would.
Not that there aren't a ton of other reasons why someone wouldn't come (pressure, fundraising obligations, family situation, job security), but it's sort of like being the GM of the Yankees. It's not for everyone but you can't deny that it's pretty close to the zenith of the field.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||The AD||
While I'm not sure I agree with the assessment anyway, the Athletic Director is the buffer, with far more interaction with the football coach than the school president.
I would presume that a president who is not all that interested in/informed about major college athletics, but recognizes their importance at a large university, will hire an AD he thinks appropriate, and then largely trust that person to run that side of the university.

His family members. Well, half of them.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||What are you talking about?||
Gives PSU 2 or 3 plays to score? It was 4th down, they would've just punted it.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Return reputation||
I'm not really sure how or where it got started, but he's generated this "dangerous return man" reputation without actually providing a ton of big returns (I think the proprietor of this website has contributed to it). It's kind of like how Dantonio for a while was viewed as this strong disciplinarian despite evidence to the contrary, just because people kept saying it over and over again.
I think Norfleet would be more dangerous and more effective as a fully-used slot receiver/jet sweep guy than a returner, where's he's just fine but at a certain point, if you're always THISCLOSE to busting one but never actually do it, that might just be who you really are as a returner.

The internet does not have it for Directv subscribers
|7 weeks 5 days ago||No if you think about it, it does not make sense||
They ran off 39 of the 40 second play-clock from the game clock. They then took a penalty. They then ran 24 out of 25 seconds on the play-clock off of the game clock.
If they continued to take illegal motion penalties with one second left, they could end the game without ever snapping it under your interpretation of the rule.
So.... NO the call on the field was not correct.
But then again, the refs also think you have to put a football between two of your hands, then summarize Proust, complete the Kessel run (in less than 12 parsecs), and explain why doth Hamlet delay, before a catch is deemed complete.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, I haven't seen anything||
Yeah, I haven't seen anything confirming that either. Weird. Maybe someone should have checked him out on that immediately after he had trouble standing after taking a helmet shot to the chin....
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Concussions||
Well, he DOES have a history of making light of player concussions, so should fit right in.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Concussion vs ankle||
Let's assume he doesn't have a concussion. It's somehow ok for the coach to send a guy who hasn't been able to stand on his sprained ankle for three series back out again and again? '
Is the requisite for serious criticism that the player has to be having life-long health threats to his brain? or is it maybe, just maybe, ok to think that a coach is still vile for not pulling a player playing on a severe ankle injury?
|8 weeks 5 days ago||No no no no||
Fuck that. This is not armchair, "he should run more bubble screens" or "he should change the O-line coach" or "I heard that he knew that Gibbons was gonna get booted from school and glossed over it."
This is black and white, indisputable fact that he left a very injured, beaten quarterback in a blowout. It doesn't matter what his reputation is, it doesn't matter how players love him. He had a very likely concussed, and at least obviously injured QB (who had been obviously injured for three series). And he left him in the game.
Now if he says he didn't know he was hurt and waiting for Morris to ask out, that may be his honest "manball" view of the game and at least it's not malevolent, but it's flat wrong, just like some guy from Alabama thinks it's ok to say the n-word because all the folks back home do.
And if he did know and left him in the game, then he literally ought to be fired tomorrow.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||2008??||
Uh, you should catch the 20 years prior to that.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Mignery||
Does Mignery have a radio show or a platform or something? He's been referenced before, and I find it so odd that a random QB-turned-blocking-TE is somehow a significant voice for former players.
