The defender on the puck is supposed to take away space and the d to d pass, in an attempt to make them go down low to the corner where you are more able to take away space/get a turnover. Like the person above mentioned, some coaches want you to hedge more aggressively as this PSU player does so if the player does make the d to d pass you have a decent chance of deflecting it for a breakaway. *If the above poster is right, I'm guessing PSU has a few guys who are good at this and are coached to do this. I know Red has coached this in the past as well, as do many coaches.

Thanks for the post. Really interesting read and I read quite a bit about Brady but there were some nice new quotes/stories.

I read this site every day. I rarely log in or comment, but this is exactly how I feel. I wish I could upvote this more.
I can understand why people are bothered by how much athletes, actors, and CEOs make, but saying someone isn't worth a salary that they are currently earning is completely ridiculous. If I offered someone $10 to mow my lawn, that may seem like a lot to a lot of people (let's say most of the world), and not much at all to someone who grew up in a very expensive area; but to say that the kid cutting my lawn isn't "worth $10 per mow" is ridiculous, because he clearly is to me, and I'm paying him that exact amount.
Same goes for CEOs, if the shareholders don't think that person is worth it, they can fire him. For actors, entertainers, and athletes, don't complain if you go watch their movies, buy tickets to their shows, watch them on tv, or buy tickets to sporting events. It's that simple, the Yankees will determine how much ARod is worth, if they are wrong and overpay him in terms of a sports contract, too bad, that's their problem. This is why the Patriots and Red Wings have had a lot of long term success, they have done well with not spending too much of their salary cap on a player not playing up to their perceived potential, also known as worth in a capitalistic society, at the time of their signing. This applies to actors and actresses, as well as to CEOs. You are worth what someone is willing to pay you and you are willing to accept, nothing less, and nothing more.

Thank you for this. Especially at this time of the year a lot of people are buying things on Amazon. This is an easy way for any Michigan fan to help support the blog.

Sorry, I'm in Houston and it is on here. Sanders (ugh, why not in the bowl game) just fumbled a punt and the Cowboys have it at the 5 yard line.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||My take, they didn't burn||
My take, they didn't burn Cole's redshirt just for this one game. He is your starter at LT, Mags stays at LG and Braden is obviously your RT. The question is why didn't Kalis start when he was clearly the best RG option? If it's the back then I'm surprised he played at all so i doubt that is it. If it is just a nod to a guy (Burzynski) who worked hard and deserved a start in a game they knew they should win and to get a look at other guys (specifically Miller) without a strong Kalis next to them or get get a likely back-up some PT with the first team and build confidence, then okay. As long as Kalis is good, I believe RG is his spot to lose. With that said, I'm going with Glasgow to C. I believe Miller will struggle against stronger teams, and every time Hoke said Miller was beating Miller at Center I always got the feel that in his head he was saying ("well, for the first game since Glasgow can't play") and that he wasn't talking about anything past the first game. That is my my opinion but I think we saw a lot of good things, and lots to improve on for our OL.
One question, does anyone know if Bosch played at all?
It would be interesting to see if they try to get him a redshirt this year if they feel they have other options as back-ups that are nearly equal and they want him (a guy who showed flashes but needed more time/strength like almost all freshman) for an extra year.

This was excellent! So many subtle hidden messages while everything you said still made sense. Really got me more excited for tomorrow; well, if that was possible.

So what you're saying is John Belein über alis somehow had something to do with our German coach beating Ghana in soccer! I love it!

Double post...I'll add that he should have a decent QB throwing to him.

Awesome news. As a Pats fan, I don't believe there was a better place for him to go. Should have a really good chance to make the roster and compete for the 3rd WR spot from day 1.

He just got named the #1 star on SportsCenter as well. Cool to see him get so much attention on tv since we know this will affect our program prestige and recruiting.

I would like to thank you while hating your post.
You sir, have made the use of an asterisk completely necessary when showing the swearing stats for this game. Otherwise, I really disagree with the use of this language on this board. Good day.

I'd close that first parenthesis before continuing to bitch about the next generation...
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Here I'm not a student||
Here I'm not a student anymore (so admission standards were actually lower when I got in) and I think I can help make you a more educated snob:
1) GA is a complete mess. They are trying to give everyone individual seats and there WAS a huge line for this game today. I was at the Central game and I noted that a line that used to take 10 minutes took 30. They can't get people in fast enough.
2) Good luck selling an Akron ticket for $20 last year to a non-student. This year, HAHAHAHA. Here is my question to the board, I could have gotten student tickets for $5 all week long, how many of you bought one? I'll bet it's a very very low number, because who is going to pay for the ticket, then pay to validate it, then want to stand in line to get a good seat...
3) Today is a big Jewish holiday (I'll let you do some research to determine what it's called), and read 1 and 2 for why no student went to the game or could sell their ticket.
4) Seniors are pissed off (as I would have been) and I'm sure frats had big parties today. Students will get there early for big games against Notre Dame, the first game of the year is always special IMO, but Akron? AKRON? Nope, not going to wait in line for that game. Just watch, this will continue under GA, the way the lines work, it will be advantageous to show up 20 minutes late.
5) GA makes this looks worse than it would have in the past. in the past, everyone is spread out and the same, very low, amount of people isn't all jammed into the front rows. So to your sharp eyes, it looks more aesthetically pleasing.
I will finish this by saying I was rarely ever late to Michigan games, I hated how empty it was when i went there, but I have never liked the idea of GA and don't think it will work the way you wanted. Here is my biggest problem with all the alums bitching and saying we should make the student sections smaller, quit bitching and make some noise at the games. The "empty" student section is still louder than half the stadium filled with old people, so at least they help the team more. All I care about is our team winning and the students help way more with that!
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Same reason people were||
Same reason people were giving away free tickets on here this week. It was supposed to be Akron...a blowout.
I graduated very recently, still have some friends in Ann Arbor, a brother at Michigan and family lives nearby. I will tell you this, my parents sold their tickets for around $20 since they went to a family event out of town, my brother couldn't give his ticket away because who is going to validate a student section ticket with GA now? No one. It's hilarious that people on here don't realize how much time a football Saturday involves, and against Akron no one is going to wait in long lines to get a good seat. I talked to numerous people after the ND game and they all said GA was a huge success, but only for big games and that the student section would be empty against Akron.
Did you go to this game?

|3 years 27 weeks ago||Honestly, my first thought||
Honestly, my first thought was this is arbitrary and kind of ridiculous. Then I immediately thought, how many first round draft picks did Alabama have last year?
What is interesting about this is that some players get drafted higher in the draft because of "potential" and some players get drafted lower due to "size" (just one example), which doesn't change their effectiveness in college at all. But, it is a very interesting way to rank a team, piece by piece. It actually is a great way to take out things like, "coach play calling" and "strength of schedule" when judging a college football team.
Honestly I would think a good portion of Alabama's contributors are going to be drafted in their career, with seemingly a few in the first round every year now.
Two ideas to improve on this, I like the idea of including only contributors, but if it's a true freshman or redshirt freshman, you can't downgrade them. This would make it possible for us to grade other teams that we know much less about and make this more statistical.
Second, when ranking a player, think to yourself, if I was drafting a college team, would they be a first round pick. This way, players like Troy Smith (sorry but it's a good example) or Russell Wilson are higher draft picks than they were due to size or specific style of play.
This would help JMFR, and to this point hurt someone like Frank Clark.
