|1 week 6 days ago||The excuses never stop...||
In the post game press conference, Izzo says they had some outside distractions this week (presumably the inquiries into MSU's response to sexual assault complaints) and goes on to say about the media that he was "disappointed in some of you". It sure seems like he is blaming his team's effort on the media asking pesky questions?! #LOL

Another thing to think about: the team was in the double bonus! You don't want to be settling for 30 footers when you're in the double bonus.
However, I'm sure that's not the play Belein drew up, it seems like Purdue disrupted the action pretty nicely and M was out of timeouts.

As Space Coyote said, sometimes they switch, sometimes they don't. But maybe Brian is making this statement based off actual game observations, not just a stat sheet?
Try watching individual players (not the ball) on defense, especially GR3 and Stauskas, and I think you will not be happy with what you find. Mutliple times a game, they lose their men on defense. Some of the times may not be entirely their fault (due to a miscommunication with a teammate, for instance), but often they just fall asleep watching the ball and lose their guy.
It is very frustrating, and I think a large part of the reason why this team has so many problems defensively.

I wasn't looking at his feet, I was watching the ball. I'm pretty sure the Purdue defender tipped the shot before it hit the backboard...but hey, I'll still gladly take it!

A measly upvote wasn't sufficient...this was a great read & very well done. Thanks for posting!

I feel like I should respond to this comment, but unfortunately I know nothing.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Perimeter Defense||
IMO many of the defensive problems are happening because of a lack of perimeter defense. Opposing guards are able to get in the lane far too often and far too easily. Whether it's bad closeouts or lack of quickness or just being flat footed, the on-ball defense on the perimeter is just not good. Tough to play defense when the opponent is living in the lane.
I don't know if it would help, but I'd like to see them bust out the zone a bit more just to try it.

After many years or lurking, I didn't start posting until points were capped at 5. Very excited for this, my first ever pos-bang. Please don't be gentle!

Completely agree. They recently built one a block from my work; everyone hyped it up so much and I was really excited to go try it...only to get there and find that it is an entire restaurant built around subtle variations of the McChicken. I honestly don't get it. Glad I'm not the only "crazy" one.

Try Big Bob's in East Grand Rapids, and get the Briazzo! Such a great pie, plus they usually have some great beers on tap.

I have read a lot of great comments on this board, but this one stands alone as the funniest one. Great post, it caused me to laugh/cry/choke so hard that my wife was worried about me.

And 4. Is no one else reading this? I would like to be able to read the rest , and see the score prediction.

The superstitious part of me thinks that releasing this before we play PSU this year is just asking for them to beat us and have a bunch of their fans tweet about #karma.

In re: to your third point, you know what would be a GREAT way for currently unpaid players to make money, even no name players from SW Missouri and EW Iowa State? Throw the game for gamblers.
EDIT: Also, downvoted for the purposefully inflammatory title

Despite some of the grim conclusions, I really enjoyed this UFR, thanks for the analysis.
I, too, am worried that we will insanely continue lining up double tight end I-forms and eating grass.

Dude, when you start at 3-9 its hard to trend anywhere else but up. And when you start 11-2 its hard to trend anywhere else but down. These trends don't prove anything.

Hard Gay has downvoted basically every single "There are..." post. He seems to hate them. If you hate them, just don't click. Easy!
I personally love them and look forward to seeing them. Please continue posting them!

I dislike Ohio the school plenty. I don't understand all the hate for the actual state and everything associated with it, though, as many people near and dear to all of our hearts came from Ohio. To name a few, our Naismith Award winner, our current football coach, many of our current players, and many of the greatest football players in school history, including our two most recent Heisman winners.

Go Maroons :) I'm an old geezer compared to you, there wasn't even football yet at HCHS when I graduated in '00. I remember the first ever middle school football game was held my senior year and we had an enormous tailgate for it, then watched them get smoked like 49-7 or something. I was very surprised we won a state title so quickly!

Yeah, sorry about that - I hit the wrong reply button, my bad!
So it probably couldn't be Brookhuizen, then. Wonder who it was. The survey just said it included 19 outgoing seniors. Could possibly include walk-ons?
