At some point isn't the Big 10 moving to 9 conference games?
|1 day 15 hours ago||yeah||
Shorter punt return yardage is nice but what is the net punt average?
|1 day 16 hours ago||Your list seems short||
you should probably add: Dave Brandon, piped in music, ticket sales (100K streak broken), why isn't northfleet getting more touches,etc.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Injuries||
put me in the camp that says it's no big deal if Hoke isn't going to disclose information. Funchess is a guy defenses have to game plan around. Not knowing whether he's going to play or not, forces the opposing team to put in a game plan with the assumption that Funchess will be playing.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Kind of but||
he went for on 4th down early in the ND game around mid field too I think.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Yup||
Total party drug .
|5 days 12 hours ago||I wonder||
if this is what dinner will be like at the Meyer household (first time trying to post gif, not sure if it will work): edit - guess it didn't.
|5 days 12 hours ago||Spence||
must not be in the circle of trust.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Seniors||
You don't consider Jake Ryan, Desmond Morgan and Ramon Taylor big contributors?
|5 days 16 hours ago||Davie and Weis||
both got 5 years. Is that a lack of patience?
|5 days 17 hours ago||Interesting||
If the current oline continues to do what they are doing (which at this point seems to be opening holes and giving Gardner decent time) if not possibly get better, I'd be hesitant about rearranging 40% of the oline. I realize you always want to get your best players on the field but one of the big aspects of the oline is playing together and working as a unit. Would you want to take the chance of possibly breaking up a serviceable unit knowing that maybe you get better but at the same maybe the changes blow up and the oline regresses?
|6 days 10 hours ago||Damn||
that's a fairly decent comparison so far.
|6 days 11 hours ago||2nd start||
Wasn't he the starting wr opposite of Gallon last year? Dileo was slot and Funchess was a TE at the beginning of the year. Chesson saw the field a lot last year.
|6 days 11 hours ago||To be fair||
Neither Darboh nor Chesson appear to be heavily involved in the UM offensive game plan. Part of that might be that Gardner doesn't get much past his first read, which if true, means if Darboh/Chesson aren't the first read for Gardner, they probably aren't going to get many pass attempts thrown their way.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Chesson isn't new||
he played a good bit last year. He was pretty much the 3rd option behind Gallon and Funchess and once Butt emerged, he became more like the 4th option. He didn't get a lot of catches because of that, but he was on the field a good bit last year.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Agree on the vision||
thing probably not being coachable. That's something either a running back has or doesn't have. It's happening so fast, it's almost all instincts and feel.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Look at the||
big brains on brad!!!
|6 days 13 hours ago||Pull guys of that power||
To be honest, none of those guys outside of Saban had much experience as a head coach at a big time football program before they landed at those spots. Miles and Brown were probably the closest with their success as head coaches at Oklahoma St and UNC. Meyer had coached at 2 mid major programs. Stoops had been a DC at Florida under Spurrier. Fisher had mainly been a coordinator at big time programs. Chizik had been OC at Auburn a bit before his head coaching stint at Iowa St. Tressell had been in 1-AA. Carroll had spent the better part of the previous decade in the pros.
Anytime you go on a coaching search it's probably going to be a crap shoot. Rarely, if ever, does a successful coach at a big time program leave to go to another school. You pretty much have to hire a coach from a 'lower tier' school or coordinator from a big time program.
|6 days 13 hours ago||Yes||
Heading into the 2013 season, most people were thinking the oline couldn't be any worse then it was in 2012.
|6 days 14 hours ago||Agree on rest||
UM should be Miami, even if it isn't pretty. With what I consider a dangerous Utah team the following week, I'd rather see UM make sure the players who are dinged up get as healthy as possible for Utah.
|6 days 14 hours ago||Kelly's first 3 years||
at ND were a combined 28-11 with a NC game appearance in his 3rd year. Hoke was 26-13 through his first 3 years at UM.
|6 days 14 hours ago||USC||
Heck you could go all the way back to 1990. Can't remember who was the USC coach that beat Bo in his last game (Homer Smith??) but from that Rose Bowl until Carroll arrived was nothing special. I think they only went to one Rose Bowl over that time frame (beat Northwestern).
|6 days 16 hours ago||Is there a way||
to sticky/create a link on the side for these recipes?
|6 days 17 hours ago||Agree on Cooper||
His first few years at OSU were a little sluggish but from '93 - '98, OSU was almost a permenant fixture in the Top 10 and in the NC picture a few years. In that stretch he won a Rose Bowl, a Sugar Bowl and lost in another Sugar Bowl. His record against UM clouds a number of good things he did at OSU.
|1 week 10 hours ago||RPS -2||
is almost generous to Mattison. Maybe the players could have played better but they were left in those positions to fry waaaay to long. Kelly and his offensive staff kept going back to well and UM didn't do anything in the first half to stop it.
|1 week 13 hours ago||His cable package/satelite provider||
must have blacked out NBC this past Saturday night.
|1 week 14 hours ago||Breaston as a freshman||
had 38 receptions for 444 yds and 3 TD's. He also returned 45 punts with an average return of 13.8 and returned 2 punts for TD's.
|1 week 15 hours ago||Bill Stewart||
In his 3 full seasons as Head Coach he went:
9 - 4
9 - 4
9 - 4 (co-champs of the Big East)
While a step down from the 3 straight double digit win seasons RR had in his last 3 years at WVU, that's not exactly a huge fall especially when you consider Holgorsen has gone: 10 - 3, 7 - 6, 4 - 8.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Hoke isn't||
divulging injury info unless the player is out for the year. So we can assume that none of those are season ending injuries but as to how long each player maybe out, no one knows. Heck, everyone assumed Peppers was going to play against ND until he didn't.
|1 week 16 hours ago||minor injuries||
Based upon how the secondary looked without Taylor (and presumably without Peppers since we haven't really seen him play), I don't think those are minor injuries.
If reports are true that Funchess is walking with a boot, that could be a huge blow to the offense if he misses any games other then Miami, OH.
