"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.

Now that I think about it, I was out of the country when Borges was fired and Nuss hired. Although I hate Rosenberg, I wasn't clear about it, but I actually wasn't ripping for him for stating it; I assumed there was some truth to it. I was just stating that I didn't hear anything about it and also that without any credible reason to believe, it's a stupid opinion to hold.

Don't be a dick. Make like a tree and get outta here.

I'd be very surprised if we lose all 3 of the big 3 games, especially with the hits ND and OSU have taken. I think we'll win 2 out of 3. I really have no idea how good Maryland is, but they seem like they'll be dangerous. Understandably, no one's talking much about them. We will lose at least one game against a weak opponent. I wanna say 10-2, but 9-3 sounds more realistic. However, I'd be surprised and disappointed with 8-4, unless there are a bunch of devastating injuries. Not specific at all but oh well.

That makes more sense. The bottom 4 are screwed. I saw 5 games in 5 days and even though it seems 4 days hasn't had an effect in the tournament, that seemed like a real bad idea.

But...how is his body more tanned than his face? Maybe just weird lighting in that photo.

I didn't realize it but in another thread others said that if they were back here they wouldn't be practicing at all so that alone is huge.

I haven't heard of anyone suggesting that it was Brandon's idea to hire Nuss. It seems like a ridiculous thing to speculate. An AD personally choosing coordinators sounds like a disaster.

You want him to get ass tackled by his own guy like Sanchez did?

#17 Really surprised to see more A&M grads in both Houston and Dallas compared to Texas grads. Is Texas just that much more popular elsewhere in the state? Or they have much more national appeal?

The biggest stadium in the world is actually in North Korea. I didn't realize India has the 2nd biggest though.

The poster worries about rebounding, but it's hard to say how big of a problem that is when he acknowledges effort is lacking due to the competition. Having said that, thanks to him.

Wouldn't they be practicing if they were back here? Are they really getting extra practice there? I suppose real games even against weak competition mixed in with the practices is a benefit though.

No, because Hoke delegates responsibility. He's a defensive coach.
Also, are you saying because elite NFL QB's do it, Gardner should too? Or was that just an unrelated comment?
|1 day 5 hours ago||I'd like to hear someone like||
I'd like to hear someone like Space Coyote chime in, but I just can't buy that it didn't matter in an RR offense. Sure, you can audible, but once the play starts you need to make reads, and RR's not doing that for him. However, perhaps there is something to being a freshman and 3rd-stringer, but if it was something taught, it seems he would have known about it.
EDIT: After scrolling down, looks like it was probably just called out by the line or RB.

Fuck Dodd. He's blaming autonomy but mentions they're 2.1 million in the hole right now, which has nothing to do with autonomy since that hasn't even begun. He doesn't blame rising coaches' salaries of course. I don't know all the reasons for their budget deficit, but obviously they have some unique problems being in the middle of the Pacific.

Above average? i don't think even the most optimistic are looking for that. I'd be thrilled with regular ol' average.

Clearly Hoke fucked up giving him the #2. He doesn't understand tradition here. Time for him to go.

I was at that game, but I wasn't bothered by it as much as some people obviously. I think because it was just so shocking. Also because I can't hate App St. for it. It was a great win for them obviously. The OSU loss that season was much more depressing. One thing more annoying than people incessantly compalining about the loss, though I do think it was stupid to schedule them again, is people who are actually getting worked up over beating them again. Yeah, we'll have our revenge on that FCS team! That'll show we're back.
|5 days 2 hours ago||Obviously Hoke wasn't afraid||
Obviously Hoke wasn't afraid to let go of Borges, and I'm sure he would have let Funk go too if he thought that was the problem. Everyone is concerned about the OL, and it certainly won't be our strength, but can we at least see how it goes in a real game? We've still got 2 weeks, the OL is still young, our defense is going to be damn good, and time and again coaches always say the defense is ahead of the offense before the season.
Remember when the Lions went undefeated under Marinelli in the preseason in 2008, and then because the preseason, especially a damn scrimmage, reflects the team perfectly, the Lions just blasted everyone in the regular season and won the Super Bowl? Oh wait...

There can be a bunch of reasons for that. I can think of plenty of games RR's teams played poorly well before the 4th. It could just as well be that RR was trying a bunch of new tricks until the other team figured it out. Also, how did RR have such good teams at WV if they apparently couldn't bench press a broomstick? It's easy to point to RR's time at Michigan and blame it on whatever you choose, not so easy to criticize RR's WV teams.
You can work your pecs without a bench press. A lot of people criticize the bench press as one of the big NFL combine stats. Is it true that Barwis didn't have them work on the press at all? Or just underemphasized it? I don't know the average, but Brandon Graham got 31 reps at the combine. Looking at the records and some of the lower showings, that seems pretty good. Obviously he had pecs. Anyway, core and legs are way more important.
I'd agree with LordGrantham. Wellman and Barwis are/were not the problem. They just talk about those guys so they have something else to write about. www.bodyrecomposition.com run by Lyle MacDonald is a great resource, along with the forums there. He tries to base things in science as much as possible (although the science on bodybuilding is not great actually). One thing he criticizes is a poster talking about THE way to get big.

Good memory. Apparently Hart20 just watches DiNardo's twitter feed.

Yes, that's why Hoke wanted an open scrimmage. The point was to make Nuss, Funk, and the OL look like shit.
