So fatigue sets in for players as the game goes on, but only when they happen to be on defense? They are also taught to crash the boards on offense, after all. They don't relax from that?

Did you read the entire article? I'm on my phone so I can't copy paste, but it said that in their first version to police they said they weren't sure who hit them, maybe the guy in the red polo. But then in their second version, after they found out who the man I'm the red polo was, they changed their story to be that it was definitely the man in the red polo. That doesn't seem odd to you?

Previously we were led to believe that he instigated the fight and punched a guy in the face. Now it seems more likely that he joined an existing fight to help his brother, and then probably punched a guy in the face. Surely you can see how this is "better"?
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I don't understand why people||
I don't understand why people seem to get upset about this every single time there are rumors a commit may visit elsewhere. It seems pretty simple to me - Michigan is saying, "If you look around for contingency plans, so will we." It makes perfect sense - what is there to get upset about?

"Remind us at every turn."
Are we really reminded that often? They showed us last week, after we had been away from the mutineers for a while, to remind us of their nature. Was there that much "reminding" before? I don't think so. I feel like this is all an over reaction to the Jamie-Cersei scene from a few weeks back. To my recollection, the rape criticism has all occured this season, and all the rapey scenes this year were the Jamie-Cersei scene, and last week at Craster's. Unless I'm forgetting some?
Interesting note: Drogo essentially raped Dany after their wedding in S1 and there was no huge internet outcry or criticisms.

And so you went to Hope?! Or is the username a random coincidence?

Hah! Never expected to see a Calvin pos-bang here. Class of 2004!

Can't get enough of dropping the casual moran, excellent work.
|19 weeks 1 day 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
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Another thing to think about:||
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.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||As Space Coyote said,||
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.
|25 weeks 4 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.

Pretty sure his mom is reading this so you should try being a little more positive!

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.
