If Auburn did not use any illegal means like hidden cameras and such to figure out the signals, then there is absolutely no wrong doing. If AU was able to just look across the field and deduce the signals, then that's really good coaching on AU's part, and poor planning on KSU's part. I hate that it's always implied that it's a dirty thing if you look at someone's hand movements and then figure out what they're planning on doing. Is it dirty to jump the snap cout if you figure out the center's pattern's? Hell no.

So we sure Taylor is still out? Would really be nice if he was back facing this team...

What else could they do? They threw a bunch of money at him. And Manning is a great recruiter as well.

Pulling for AU because I would take a 4 team SEC playoff over MSU or OSU getting into the playoff.

Don't worry Coach, they were. They were.

Much easier to do in today's football where a good team gets to play like 14 games. So having the best streak in your programs history in today's football enviornment makes it easier to get 11 win seasons. Back in the day, only one B1G team even got to go to a bowl. Plus there's no ties anymore either. I think there were two Bo teams that only had one loss, but didn't hit 11 wins.

Soooo...this means UM is going win, right?
|1 day 5 hours ago||Purdue went down putting||
Purdue went down putting nearly identical stats offensively to UM, while allowing 100 more yards defensively and more than double the rush YPC. They also turned the ball over 3 times to ND. You can use 'feelingsball' all you want, but just by saying they 'fought the good fight' doesn't mean they actually did anymore than UM did.
|1 day 6 hours ago||But they didn't get handled||
But they didn't get handled physically. They outgained ND and held them to 1.8 yards per rush. The problems with the D were basically 'down two starting CBs'. Hell, even the OL got some holes, but the RBs haven't figured out the IZ scheme yet.
|1 day 6 hours ago||I agree with you. And if the||
I agree with you. And if the lynch pin for the entire 7-5 senario is losing to Utah, then yeah, basically his job is on the line against Utah in this senario. So it kind of is his most important game at this point.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Eh, Rutgers is probably worse||
Eh, Rutgers is probably worse than last year's PSU team. So far, they have a worse D and worse O (based on total yards) than PSU's was last year. And besides, UM should have won last year's PSU game. And this year's UM team is probably better as well. Not saying UM can't lose, but there's no excuse at this point for losing that game.

So you don't think it's the most important game for Hoke if it's a 'win or you lose your job' senario?
|1 day 6 hours ago||If it's a bad loss, yeah,||
If it's a bad loss, yeah, it's the beginning of the end. I guess the season could be fine, but there would be enough data to say that it probably won't. I think you'll also start seeing commits wavering as well if that happened.

Rutgers. No excuse to losing to Rutgers even on the road.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Maybe? I mean every game is||
Maybe? I mean every game is Hoke's most important at this point. He really can't afford to lose any, even if MSU and Ohio are likely losses. But regardless of what happens I predict no one will be happy anyway.
|1 day 8 hours ago||All these recipes will work||
All these recipes will work for gas grills. I have a gas grill set up for two zones to allow indirect heat, and it works great. I prefer gas because it's a ton easier to use in my opinion, and allows for tighter temp control. It doesn't get as hot as charcoal (though I have grates that produce more radiant heat to get the temp up on the direct side), and doesn't allow as easy 'charing', because it doesn't have direct access to an open flame. But that's ok because I, unlike some, so not like charring. It's just carbonizing the meat; do not want.

Honestly not sure, but I read the above referenced article yesterday and it said that Spence is facing permenant ineligibility due to the second positive test for a banned substance according to the B1G handbook. Also said that a 'source' said it's a long shot that Spence is reinstated. Basically kind of made it sound like it may not be totally in Meyer's hands.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Problem is that Spence's||
Problem is that Spence's actual return may be out of Meyer's hands. With the repeat failed drug test, it's a violation of B1G rules, and may be their decision. That said, I still wouldn't doubt he's back for the UM game somehow. That's just life as a UM fan. Also mixed feelings on him practicing. Can see pluses and minuses to both.

Good lord. I think you may just need to avoid anything Hoke says because obviously anything he says is an indictment of the last three years (which included an 11 win BCS game season).
|1 day 20 hours ago||Has UM beaten MSU and OSU in||
Has UM beaten MSU and OSU in the last few days? Then hell no, no one is happy.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Man, you must have been crazy||
Man, you must have been crazy busy managing the Coping Beverages Division last week. And last year. And maybe the year before that. And kind of all of 2007-2010. Actually, you can probably justify a whole new posistion to manage that section now that I think about it.
|2 days 8 hours ago||I think the Vikings||
I think the Vikings punishment is perfectly appropriate even before court procedings. Peterson has not been found guilty of any crime, so it's not alright to not pay him. but it is alright to say you're not allowed in the office until legal procedings are done, as long as he is still paid. It seems that Peterson accepted that as well. In today's society, I think waiting for court procedings to be finalized just isn't completely realistic. Hell, as soon as Peterson was reinstated, his lawyer filed a motion to have the court date pushed back until after the NFL season. In that case, waiting for the legal system means nothing probably ever happens.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Man, I've been wondering how||
Man, I've been wondering how the NFL could mishandle stuff so bad recently. I mean the NFL and the teams really only care about making money, and along with that, winning. Whatever they do ultimately goes back to that, as you mention with the sponsers. I wonder if the NFL and the Vikings were just not expecting such a backlash from the public. I can't say I'm in tune with the NFL's history, but perhaps when such things like this have happened in the past, the public just doesn't seem to care much? So they thought people wouldn't care this time? Maybe NFL fans are just changing and actually caring about this stuff.
The worse part for the Vikings is that like three years ago they basically suspended a player with pay for almost the entire season when he was accused of domestic violence (later aquited, and then rejoined the team). But when their best player gets into trouble, now he should play until the legal system works itself out? That was probably the biggest blunder.

Right after that play I was like "Damnit Gardner, you need to check out of that". A realy QB would have easily done that. Gardner -32.

To be fair to Brian, he's never called for Green or anybody to 'try and run people over'. He's always advocated the 'juke people' first and the truck stick as a last resort when there's nothing else. The people calling for the truck stick are, at least inY opinion, idiots who think a 'bowling ball' is he best option at running back, as if it actually worked at an elite level except for rare exceptions. Those people probably think Mile Hart's best trait as an RB was pushing the pile, while probably not paying attention to his ability to juke guys in a phone both. It is true that Smith is like a weeble wobble and just stays upright whenever someone hits his legs, which Green has not shown yet.

Can't say I learned much about his coverage other than he seems pretty raw at it. Regardless, him and Taylor (which sucks about his ACL tear) are the types of DBs UM needs to start recruiting more of if they want to make this press man scheme and almost base 4-2-5 work. Reminds me a lot of the types of DBs Virginia Tech and MSU constantly runs out. Gonna need a lot of those kinds of corners to run the amount of nickel packages they want to run.

Really good to hear. I was worried about him kicking around the D-league for a while. Guess they really see the potential and feel they can use it.

Only all fan bases that are angry with a lack of winning.
