I'd be interested in their numbers of fumbles and pick sixes as well. The former is what drives me crazy with DG. The way he carries the ball while running is, imho, inexcusable. Also, three more picks is actually pretty significant, but I was surprised that the difference wasn't larger.

Not sure how gardener on a bad wheel differs from John Navarre, Peyton manning, Carson Palmer, or the dozens of other statute abs when it comes to getting hit

I dunno Westwardwolverine, if your son had a set of boobs I'd bet Magnus would never take his eyes off of him on the field, and thus never miss any concussion symptoms.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Just another||
Just another low level coach serving his own interests. Whether it's conscious or not, all of these coaches have a vested interest in absolving Brady of responsiblity for the Morris fiasco. They spit out bullshit platitudes like "Everybody plays hurt," "You know your own players best," and so on, but what they are really doing is covering their own asses in case they mess up and get one of their own players hurt. The less responsiblity they have, the easier their job is, so why would they criticize one of their own for being irresponsible? It's asking the guards to guard themselves.
|10 weeks 22 hours ago||You're ignoring differences in the increase in risk||
Since driving (like any other action) has an inherent risk, you have to look at the increased risk brought about by the immoral/illegal aspect, not simply the flat risk of drunk driving. So for drunk driving, you need to look at the increased risk of accident that results from being drunk. In the supposedly analogous case of the gunman, you'd need to look at the increased risk of accident that results from waving the gun instead of say, waving your hand (fixing the relevant alternatives isn't easy, but the gist is here). If, as I suspect, waving the gun increases the risk in that case much more than drinking increases the risk in the other case, then we shouldn't treat them similarily.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Oh,||
I don't think SpaceCoyote is gsimmons is either. I didn't mean for the "interesting pattern" thing to suggest that. I just thought it was interesting that another coach who defended a coach got tired of this blog's (might not have been Brian so much as the message board posters in gsimmons case) persistant criticism. Like it or not, this blog fosters a good deal of group-think behavior. For a long time you couldn't say a bad word about Rich Rod without a full-flame war breaking out. There's some evidence from the turn-around at Texas that GERG isn't a total space-cadet-- though WTF was that beaver?-- but he'll forever be a total moron around here. I think the vitroil directed at coaches is difficult for other coaches to deal with.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||I agree with you||
Brian, I agree with your position in your post. It is bullshit to pull a scheduled game after season tickets have been purchase. However, your response is childish. SpaceCoyote was wrong, but politely and gently so. You're apparently still salty that he didn't agree with you about Borges so you bundle that with his post here to call him a Yes Man. That wasn't called for. It would be on par with me claiming you have Oversensitivity to Criticism disease on the basis of this post.
Your claim later in thread that he's disagreeing just to disagree (essentially trolling) is similarly silly. If he's trolling, he sure does it in strange way, mixing it in with extremely helpful and insightful posts about technical football details. Finally, I don't understand who the "we" are supposed to be who "get it." I guess that is supposed to imply SpaceCoyote just isn't a real fan or something like that because he disagrees with you. Again, he is an awfully well disguised "fake" fan if that is the case.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Wasn't there a guy||
Wasn't there a guy named "simmons" or something who was a coach and who defended Scott Shafer around here who left because he got too frustrated with everyone saying Shafer was just a jackass and didn't know how to coach? Interesting pattern.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||I the past||
haven't Ace and Brian bitched about the poor Wi-Fi in the stadium? Now everyone is pissed because Brandon is trying to fix that. Whatever. If Rich Rod was flying in from Arizona to install the antennae, everyone here would fucking nut themselves with joy.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah RR was||
great here. Not like it was his recruiting that l left the OL in the shitter, just like Carr had before him. I'll take barely beating Akron over losing to Toledo any day. I'll also take occasional wins over OSU and MSU over none at all. But I guess year 6 was the year it all would have turned around for Rich.
RR is a good coach, but he performed poorly at Michigan. I think Hoke is a good coach too, and he's already performed better than RR. You don't like Hoke and that's fine, but the hyper-optimistic alternate futures you and others construct for RR are laughable. You really think RR was just going to build up a juggernaut and crush Urban Meyer's OSU and an MSU team that did beat Meyer and then Stanford? On the basis of what evidence? Certainly not his track-record at Michigan, nor his single BCS bowl victory at WVU. Just the nebulous sense that he "was trending upward", which is pretty easy to do when you start off losing 75% of your games.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||Exactly.||
We had a crappy season and now everyone on our coaching staff is an idiot, including the new OC that just recently, according to this place, replaced THE OMG WORST, REFUSES TO THROW BUBBLE SCREENS coach in the history of mankind. Nevermind that we are finally retaining players after years of comically massive attritrition, WE NEED TRANSFERS!
|26 weeks 3 days ago||Oh calm the fuck down.||
Really. He's playing for one year, and as we saw last year, one good player does not a good OL make. If we develop the young OL, we'll be fine. If we don't, we were gonna be screwed anyway.
|28 weeks 2 hours ago||Hope he goes||
I hope he goes somewhere with good programs in European languages. That's the best preparation for his basketball future. At least this dispells the notion, founded on some pseudo-intellictual article he wrote for Huff. post and fans natural tendency to hold their team's players in high regard, that he transfered because he wanted to go to some grad program better than Michigan.
|28 weeks 18 hours ago||This merits a shoulder shrug||
and that's about all. Horford seemed like a good teammate and was a servicable back-up center, but that's about it as far as on court contributions. The difference between him and Morgan, especially defensively, was stark this season. The team would be better with him, but he was never going to be more than a back-up level player forced to start this season.
|31 weeks 20 hours ago||That last GRIII shot||
was a terrible angle. It's very different shooting a 17footer head on and from a 45 degree angle to the basket. He needs to go to the fucking basket.
|31 weeks 5 days ago||I'm sure Bielfeld||
is a good kid, and he's working his ass off on defense. But why the fuck did he shoot 2 threes?
|31 weeks 5 days ago||Our bigs just||
Our bigs just are not good and Horford is significantly worse than Morgan. Morgan is just getting shit on by the refs and Horford has been brutal this tournament.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||I'm here for a negbang||
I been down on Robinson and was hating on him this game. I'll take my medicine.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Interesting note:||
In the past this board would be filled with calls for GRIII to set-up, but now we've just given up on that. If Caris and Nik aren't going it done, then forget it.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||About||
about as much sense as your post. They aren't rebounding, they aren't protecting the rim, and they aren't finishing at the basket. The guards shooting is only part of the problem. The reason we only have 12 fucking points isn't because the Purdue guards are making shots.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Our bigs||
are playing like absolute garbage. Terrible.
|34 weeks 3 days ago||So the defense||
was fine, but we don't trust the guys running it? Sorry, but the turn-around from the joke defense RR & Greg fielded has bought this coaching staff plently of leeway on that side of the ball from me. *I'm sure that means a lot to them*

|35 weeks 20 hours ago||I don't understand||
why anyone would give two fucks about this anymore. I can't wait for WILL THE FAB FIVE RETURN for a 30 year anniversary mentioning of their names during a timeout at Chrisler.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah you're right||
GR3 played awesome!
|35 weeks 5 days ago||LeVert is actually||
playing pretty well. We'd be down 20+ without him. MorFord isn't good, but no one in their right mind thought either of them were going to be offensive stalwarts. Irvin taken what, three shots? He's a 3 point shooter put in the game for the sole purpose of sparking offense with his shooting. Stauskas is the only one who is close to GR3's level of shitting the bed today.
**Update: 4 minutes into the second half Stauskas, LeVert and Morgan are all playing much better. GR3's contribution: late help and a goaltend.**
|35 weeks 5 days ago||There is a bit of myth||
about GRIII, in that people think he's fast. He's not. He's got a slow first step on offense and doesn't have quick feet on defense. Notice that he usually guarded by a guy much larger and seemingly slower than him, but he can rarely get into the lane. Part of that is his weak handle, but part of that is his speed. He can jump high and has some good moves to finish once he's at the rim (not just dunks, but lay-ups around defenders and so on), but he isn't a complete athlete who can just out outrun, outjump, and outmove guys.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||Haha,||
my bad. RGIII would probably be a better college basketball PF than GRIII at this point.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||RGIII||
is, to be nice about it, not a very good player. He's crazy undersized to guard Wisconsin's center, but he has apparently given up on offense. He should've gone pro last year-- the Flint Tropics would have loved to get him.
