doesn't have that much humidity. Alabama, heck yes.
|18 hours 15 min ago||It might mean||
for lack of a better term, the players execute/make plays. Once the play starts, they make the correct reads and react correctly to what the offense is doing.
|18 hours 20 min ago||DT and SDE||
With the way most coaches seem to rotate those positions, won't most of those guys probably being seeing the field? They might be fighting over who gets the majority of snaps, but the loser(s) probably isn't going to be relagated to the bench are they?
|18 hours 26 min ago||Great returns||
My memory is probably fuzzy but other then the return that was called back against OSU, I don't remember any other great returns getting nullified by penalty.
Put me in the catagory of never seeing what the hype about Norfleet as a returner was/is too.
|18 hours 33 min ago||Other factors too||
While the transition of the underclassmen to upperclassmen probably played a big role there were a few other factors going on as well.
Jake Long missed most of the 2005 season due to injury. He was arguably UM's best oline at the time. In addition, English was in his first year as DC in 2006.
2010 to 2011 was a complete overall of the coaching staff.
|18 hours 51 min ago||True but||
you usually don't want to be flip flopping centers do you? I understand guards and tackles sometimes shifting when an injury occurs but wouldn't you usually only move your center to tackle and someone new to center as a last resort?
|1 day 13 hours ago||Not sure||
how it all went down, but that is similiar to what Carr used to do. He never really 'fired' anyone, they were encouraged to seek employment somewhere else.
|1 day 18 hours ago||It's tough||
because you are only allowed a limited number of coaches.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Non-conference slate||
I'm pretty sure Appy St was scheduled under Brandon's watch.
|4 days 13 hours ago||Interesting point||
This has been discussed in previous threads but how much of this revenue that the schools generate is due to the name on the front of the jersey vs the name on the back of the jersey?
|4 days 13 hours ago||You don't think||
Harvard, MIT, Univeristy of Chicago, etc. are doing just fine without having 'robust and profitable' sports to prop up their donations?
Northwestern didn't just become a top notch academic institution when it's football team started to have success.
|4 days 13 hours ago||The thing I wonder about||
with what you mention is will there just be a separate division for football (the schools that can afford to raise the compensation for the football team), or could this separation of 50-60 schools from the rest affect other sports too? Would March Madness as we know it come to an end? Would Big Ten hockey be isolated and on an island of it's own? Of the 'Big 6' confernces the Big Ten is the only one that has D1 hockey teams.

As long as the UM dline doesn't look like a JV unit when compared to OSU's, I don't care how fast or athletic they are.
|5 days 18 hours ago||Mike White||
Illinois head coach is next to Hayden Fry.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Even if||
the 20-30K is an exageration it's probably not like someone heard they were 2-3K below capacity and through word of mouth/the grapevine it worked it's way up to 20-30K. You'd have to figure even with possible exageration, there is still a huge allotment of tickets available for Appy St.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Gardner and Gallon||
actually put up huge numbers in the passing game last year. It just gets forgotten cause the running game was so awful.
|1 week 16 hours ago||What's your definition||
of 'a significant time in the minors'?
|1 week 17 hours ago||NCAA baseball||
Actually puts a lot more players in the pros then once in a decade type circumstances. Sure a lot of people go straight from high school to the minors or from a foreign country to the minors but there are a lot of players who played NCAA baseball that go on to successful MLB careers: Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Barry Larkin, Jason Giambi, Mike Schmidt, Jeff Kent, Will Clark, Rafael Palmero, Fred Lynn, Dave Winfield, Paul Molitor, Mike Mussina, Tim Hudson, Todd Helton, Albert Belle, Ryan Braun, Lance Berkman, Jason Varitek.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Depends||
There might be a huge difference between the S&C program he had in high school and the one he has at UM. If so, it wouldn't be hard for him to put on a decent amount of good weight.
|1 week 5 days ago||I wonder||
if they are looking into what the costs associated with an MLS game are. My daughter plays soccer so we usually hit one or two of the local MLS games a year. One thing I like is the MLS games are easily one of the more affordable sporting events that my family and I attend.
|1 week 5 days ago||Ohio State||
While the defensive backfield might be green, a rock solid to possibly dominant dline could cover up a lot of deficencies there.
|1 week 5 days ago||Free||
You think the season ticket holders that go are going to be given free popcorn, parking, drinks, etc.? I could be wrong but I'm guessing while entrance to the Big House is free, the associated items won't be - parking, concessions, etc.

never gets old.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||2nd Rose Bowl win||
UM won some bowl games between the '81 and '89 Rose Bowls.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Hutchinson||
In 1997 (redshirt freshmen - the year you say he was a liability) he was 1st team all big ten by the media and 2nd team all big ten by the coaches.
In 1998 (redshirt soph - the year you say he was just competent) he was 1st team all big ten by both the media and coaches.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Your last sentence||
If a team is losing in the 4th quarter, especially by 2 scores or more, the odds are they are going to start throwing the ball more and reduce the amount of times they run ball.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, unfortunately||
I and others went into 2013 thinking the oline couldn't be worse then it was in 2012.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Jerry Hanlon||
Why doesn't Hoke give Jerry Hanlon a call and ask him if he wants to be a part time consultant for 20-30 hours a week????
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Uggggh||
"Brady [Hoke] needs to win," Schlabach said. "The problem is, Urban [Meyer] has turned OSU into a juggernaut and now Dantonio has built a really good program at Michigan State."
I thought Tressell pretty much had established OSU as a juggernaut. They just had a hicup when Fickell had to be head coach for a year, Pryor bolted for the pros and freshmen Braxton Miller had to play QB.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||One of the questions I have||
is does this give the players an incentive to not take classes or take the very minimum number of classes while they are playing?
What's the point of taking a full load or attempting to get your degree in 4-5 years if you know once your eligibility is up you can then focus on the academic side of things.
Or is this mainly geared to the players that leave early to try and play professional sports? If you're at the school for 5 years and do not get your degree, that's your fault - no more free ride for you. If you are at the school for 3 years, and turn pro, when that is over you can come back and try to get your degree.
