to play football, not to play trumpet
|5 years 13 weeks ago||This as our D's best performance to date||
There were breakdowns..sure, but they actually tackled and had 3 and outs.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||I think injuries have held Denard back more than anything||
Just imagine his numbers if he doesn't go out against BG, and plays out the full game against ILL, and that isn't even adjusting for the fact that at least a couple of his INT's are totally attributable to his bum shoulder.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||The QB chucked the football at the last moment||
I was pissed about losing the sack, delirious about the win and impressed with the Frosh's presence of mind all at the same time.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||That tackle by Avery on 3rd down right at the||
1st down marker was unreal. I literally haven't seen a Michigan defenseman make a "You ain't going no further son" tackle like that for a looong time.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||I am not so sure they let Stew go||
He still does have a darn good winning percentage and is mathematically in the race for a Big East title.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||How would that be political?||
Fox claims to be a "un-biased" source of news.
They would just happen to really like Shirwell's "Family Values".
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Then you clearly haven't read his||
supposed conversation with Bill martin after the 2008 season. That was hilarious.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Technically Woolfolk would also be a||
returning starter since he was one when he got injured.
btw, Magnus, wanted your take on the Demens hype and the Woolfolk hype.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||What they fail to mention or understand is that||
DC's will gladly have Denard launching air missiles all day than hav him galloping all over them.
Until he has a B10 game where he burns the secondary to a crisp, this meme will not die.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Suggestion for alternate model.||
Take the number of yards predicted for the offense and use the yards/point of the defense and THEN predict the outcome of the game.
(Hope this is clear, I can clarify if you need).
Defenses that create a lot of turnovers will be better modeled with this predictive scheme. This will also account for bend-but-dont-break defenses that give up lots of yards but not too many points. NOTE: Jokes about our "bend-over" defense will not be appreciated.
Your prediction is actually (loosely put) using two random variables without a joint probability term right now.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||I am breaking out the ol Simmons||
"I am afraid to say anything"
|5 years 14 weeks ago||If I were you, I would check if the offer is||
still open. If he is a big fan he might have already lost it already with all the bad luck they have had.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Completely legit on an official visit||
Pearl hosted a barbecue party at his home for players not on an official (maybe even during a non-recruiting period, I am not sure).
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Harbaugh knows very well what is||
involved with an NFL HC job ( I've seen him on the Ravens sidelines a couple of times). I am not at all convinced he would give up the perks of a college job for the NFL. If anything, he will jump for a big payday in college FB (LSU maybe?) .
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Wow, the TW reference really hit home.||
Brian regularly makes fun of the blame ND fans put on TW's recruiting but fails to realize he is doing exactly the same.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||To be fair they weren't "beasts" under RR||
either. They were barely serviceable.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||Yeah, that was funny.||
Also you can't hit stop on the timer as soon as you see the screen in Windows because it only *starts* all the startup applications then. It still needs to start connecting to Wifi and start the AV software at a minimum.
|6 years 11 weeks ago||Why doesn't Tiger Woods||
win every single tournament he plays in? That i one of the dumbest questions I have ever seen around here.
I know people get shocked when favorites lose but one play, that takes a special kind of crazy to ask why they couldn't guarantee that they would get it.
|6 years 11 weeks ago||One of the interceptions was clearly a miscommunication between||
him and wayne (read based on safety blitz). I would hardly call that a "terrible" throw.
|6 years 12 weeks ago||What's your point?||
What's your point?
|6 years 12 weeks ago||Not begrudging at all I think.||
Just curiosity I guess. Simmons always keeps track of his "predictions" and mentions it at the end of his picks column...fwiw
|6 years 12 weeks ago||GBMW consists of the same morons||
that claimed Omameh was tearing things up and was a lock for All-American. Why the hell are you reading them?
|6 years 14 weeks ago||Stating the obvious (this includes||
paraphrasing what Brian has been saying forever) is not contributing.
Also, asking a question and answering it yourself == LAME.
|6 years 14 weeks ago||It is remarkable how you manage||
to comment in every single one of the 1000 threads every day without ever contributing anything..not even by mistake.
|6 years 14 weeks ago||I think RR is doing an okay job (B-)||
but your statement is retarded. So if try my very best in an exam and still answer very little correctly I still deserve an A??
|6 years 15 weeks ago||RR is very internet savvy||
I bet his bulletin board just redirects to MgoBoard.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||I doubt if visiting||
Sparty fans will have the requisite points to actually neg anybody.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||This is awkward but I also wanted to apologize||
I've been reading this site for a few months now and just signed up for an account and got over-excited and posted a lot today. Apparently thats a no-no around here.
I have learned my lesson and I will keep quiet for the most part now.Sorry for the trouble (I got an email saying I was annoying too many people).
|6 years 17 weeks ago||Sorry my bad||
I misread that.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||Can we||
get Dantonio's take on this already?
|6 years 17 weeks ago||I think this years game might have made it||
into the list piggybacking on the RoboHenne-BE game.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||That should seal the deal right there.||
Can't let her get away.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||Not a great idea to rely on||
past streaks especially this year.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||Can't generalize like that.||
When we have Sparty to drag our (B10) class level down, any mention of class is throwing stones when in a glass house.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||No way they come in to the||
big house and beat us. This is the last year Sparty even gets within 2 TD's of us.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||Agred on Boo freep link||
I go to detnews for all my news now.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||I bet that 4-6 number||
is padded a little bit in an effort to try and catch somebody offguard
|6 years 17 weeks ago||Did they ever try a hard count to try and draw them off?||
Or would this be something you wouldnt burden a frosh QB with?
|6 years 17 weeks ago||Wasn't there talk of a light issue for||
3:30 starts. Granted that might have been for Nov games though.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||AA in the fall is pretty||
but I would go to Gainsville or LA if I was looking for a pleasure trip.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||That would be ND's old tagline||
The new one is :
All your Burgers and mayo are belong to us
|6 years 17 weeks ago||Hard to understand how you are twisting Tom's comment||
|6 years 17 weeks ago||This info really helps. I am curious||
What do you guys(IA fans) think of the coaching match-up? Looking through my M&B glasses I would call that in our favor...
|6 years 17 weeks ago||If we get to PSU 7-1||
and then get Molk back..lookout, new years day bowl here we come.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||Stanzi is the kind of QB that we don't match up well with||
Hopefully we can just outscore them.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||Speaking of Mr.Sheppard||
Last saturday was the first time I saw and I have to say, I would MUCH rather have Tate or Denard. I just don't get the hype for that guy.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||As long as Brian doesnt go paysite on us||
I don't see why one would ever pay anybody for this info.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||Agreed||
A healthy dose of Minor rage is what we really need (for the good of the O and the D).
|6 years 17 weeks ago||Why is Tate wasting time with that loser||
I think he conveyed what he wanted in the presser.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||Pearlie and Dequinta||
definitely fall in this category. Losing them really hurt us and we didnt know until the last week so I am not sure if there was a lot of time for us to play defense ( no pun intended) on that.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||I loved how RR had fun with that comment||
and didn't blow a vein like Dantonio would have.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||I think Tate is so chilled out||
that he really comes into his own only when normal human beings would be close to cardiac arrest.
