Every now and then I get a little bit tired...
|3 days 17 hours ago||I was referring to Michigan's||
I was referring to Michigan's specifically - why not wear one of the best jerseys in sports?. Some general Uniformz have worked, but those are most often more legitimate throwbacks - Chargers baby blues, Rams royal blue, Bears with no white/helmet logo, etc.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Summed up perfectly||
Some of the Uniformz haven't been awful, that's true. But I agree completely with Brian's sentiment here:
I've yet to see an alternate uniform that looks as good as the real McCoy.

It made for good stories that the athletes came. Most of them didn't drink, they'd just meet girls and head for the dance floor. Some of the girls teams would show up too, they liked to have a good time.

I was in the Greek System while at Michigan and at a very large party (St. Pattys I think?) I was in charge of "Risk' or de-facto house security (there would be a big number of sober guys helping). We had 1 entrace and 1 exit for the party, IFC would monitor stuff, etc. Anyway, VIPs would regularly come in the "exit" in the snowfence and I remember a HUGE commotion at the exit with a lot of very large people. I ran over hoping that there wasn't a fight or anything when in the whirl of activity someone from inside yelled "YO LET THOSE GUYS IN!" at which point I yelled at everyone to calm down and said no one comes in that way. Someone yelled "don't you know who that is? that's Air Georgia!" I looked up and realized that I had been stopping the basketball team from arriving and was staring into Petway's chest. I mumbled "oh... oops..." and he was like, "so can I come in? Want to see my M Card?" I was like "uh, OK?" and they came in and a good time was had by all.

Although at this point a MBB preview that was a whole bunch of GIFs and "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" would suffice.

Under Carr that was the rule, and RR as well, not sure about Hoke. I'm not sure if African American Fraternities have always fallen under that umbrella or if the "Ban" was more based on IFC houses.

We can haz guard-play? I'm confused. From Draftageddon I thought Rutgers' DL was good?

He said that people will also go at him because he's a rookie. I think tha tthe original article was actually well written and nuanced, added good context to Nik's statements and made a lot of good points.

David Molk was our best offensive player in 2011. I wouldn't have wanted him receiving the snap.
In principle making it harder for defenses to scheme Ryan out was smart. Moving him to MLB was not the best way to accomplish that however (according to available data).

Actually it's kind of like taking the greatest running QB in modern NCAA history, the only one to have a 1500/2500 season and running a bunch of I form play action on 2nd and 13 hoping he develops a pocket presence.
Or moving a wildman edge rusher to the middle and hoping he can succesfully become Brian Urlacher, dropping into coverage and read-and-reacting
Countess was great when he could read and react in zones. He's not a shutdown bump-and-run corner who will dominate 1-on-1 matchups.
This staff seems to take square pegs who are doing great in square holes and say - LETS TRY YOU IN A ROUND ONE! You'll be great!
|1 week 4 days ago||See my post above||
It's almost as if the Peter Principle is the deciding factor here. The players have skills, they're just not being put in a position to use them! Jake Ryan was (IS?? do we know?) a very good edge rusher. He's not being allowed to do that. The argument is/was making decisions that are best for the defense, not the players, but I don't see the results of the experiment working.
What are the odds that this very veteran group could rotate back to the under as a base D? Put Charlton at SDE, Ryan at SAM, Bolden and Ross at the ILBs... you've got your NT/DT/WDE already. Would this not be a better defense?

Winning the lottery would be great too. So would beating PSU eleventy-billion to 0. If I had to guess, Bacon is being optimistic and wrong.
I'd love it if he's right though.

The football team is bad. And I feel bad. I hope Zoidberg is vindicated.

Hoke's behavior has definitely changed. Early on he would think for seconds about a 4th down, point to go and get aggressive. He would challenge his team to succeed. Now he punts from the opponent's 40 with nary a whimper. Brian liked one set of behavior (game theory), and dislikes what hoke's recent decisions have been.

The end of each post has gotten better and better... Bar is getting set pretty high here with Goblin Gruden.
Also - (hear me out) what about CFL coaches with college/NFL roots? The Bears' offense seems to have struck gold with Marc Trestman (former longtime NFL/NCAA QB coach and OC, then CFL head coach) - are there any out of north-field candidates in the CFL who have the experience with NCAA football to succeed?

"I want to see a huddle. I want our QB to get a play call from you and run it. I want our personnel split to favor seniors and tight ends. I want to give Morris a shot. "
Where was it this past weekend that saw M go no huddle and look to the sideline for an audible? That was the first time I remember under Hoke - Has Nuss wanted the quick-line-up-sideline-glance to happen all along? Hoke said no until it was a HUGE tire fire?
