He didn't say anything about erasing. The current team and coaches, who did nothing wrong, want to move on. What's so awful about that?

Totally agree. The righteous indignation is so over the top. It's not the current players' or coaches' fault that some psu fans are crazy.

It was obviously PI. You'd be livid if that happened to Michigan.

I read these and I'm like, "does no one else on this blog have small children?" Every Saturday and Sunday is: wake up with kids at 7, play with toys/playdoh, eat, go for a walk, repeat repeat.

Not exactly a ton of other options right now. It'd be a risk, but not unrealistic.

Here's a guess: there's not room for true fan obsession of both sports at one school. One will always be prioritized over the other in terms of resources, marketing, etc. That's why you get flashes of brilliance in the "secondary" sport from some schools, but never consistent results. Among the list of true bball bluebloods with consistent success over multiple decades, none are also on the football list.

X-Com is awesome.

You would think the better measure would be turnovers forced per snap. A team that faces 6 drives of 20 total snaps with 1 turnover is not worse at forcing turnovers than a team that faces 6 drives of 60 total snaps with 2 turnovers.

You seem like you would sous vide, CF.
And I mean that as a compliment. I do too.
|6 days 9 hours ago||Since players always do||
Since players always do exactly what coaches tell them to do, could you inform Harbaugh that he should tell Speight to throw touchdowns on every play? Thx -- glad we'll get that solved.

How on earth was he "relaxed" before the game was over? We maximized our chances of winning, and then lost. That happens sometimes.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Dude||
The play-calling at the end of last year's game got us into a final play where we win 999/1000 times. How can you possibly second-guess that? If we throw on that series, you don't think something really bad happens at least .5% of the time?
|6 days 11 hours ago||God dammit||
I hadn't been pissed about that play for at least a few months. And now, there it is again.
|1 week 11 hours ago||I know you're entitled to||
I know you're entitled to your opinion, but if there's ever been an opinion closer to being objectively wrong than "watching football on TV is always better than in person," I don't know what it is.

The fans are awful, but the stadium itself is pretty great. Easily a top 5 CFB stadium, if we're being honest.

Wisconsin is not a top-tier defense?

I think Harbaugh would be plenty open to running a more spread-centric system if it suited his QB's talents. Kaepernik was second in QB rushing yards in the NFL in 2014, and they ran plenty of spread concepts with Luck.

It's not even close. Freddie is a moderately better performer than any of the others, and a much, much, much better singer than any of the others.
|1 week 4 days ago||Man, those responses are||
Man, those responses are pretty much music to the reasonable Beilein critics' ears. Reminds me of when Brandon was fired and the administration basically said it was going to do all of the things that MGoBlog had been pining for.
|1 week 6 days ago||I agree. I'm just trying to||
I agree. I'm just trying to explain why, though the numbers are similar, I still think Rudock was performing at a much higher level late last year than Speight is now.
I also think it's unlikely we steamroll opponents with running against OSU, in the B1G championship game if we make it (maybe Wisconsin again), and in the playoff or bowl game. Speight's going to have to perform when asked to do more than he has so far if we're going to win those very difficult games.
|1 week 6 days ago||It's true that Speight's||
It's true that Speight's numbers look fine right now. I think the concern is that he hasn't had to do anything in volume. It's much easier to put up good YPA numbers and completion percentages when you're out in front of every game and throwing 15-20 times.
Where Rudock was really impressive in the second half of last year was shouldering the load of the offense and throwing it 30-40 times a game while remaining efficient. There will be games where Speight is asked to do that this year (maybe just one game), and there's where my confidence in him is still a bit shaky.

Why doesn't LSU just agree to give up their home game next year to even the balance? Seems like everyone wins to me.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||On a football field, yes, I||
On a football field, yes, I think "legal" and "okay" are pretty much synonymous. You really expect players to impose additional rules on themselves -- placing themselves at a competitive disadvantage -- just to decrease the chance that opposing players get hurt?
Again, I'm not saying the rule is good. I'm saying I don't expect players to make that decision. Their job is to play within the rules, and they're not somehow dirty players for not restricting themselves beyond the rules.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||My point was originally||
My point was originally responding to Elmer. It sounds like you and I fully agree.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I don't disagree. But right||
I don't disagree. But right now, it's legal. I don't see how you can call any football player "dirty" by executing a perfectly legal football play. If we, as a collective, had decided it was dirty, or dangerous, or whatever, it would not be legal. Maybe that will change. But as of now, I can't assign any blame to the Wisconsin player.
If Harbaugh found a loophole in the rules that allowed him to have 12 players on the field, would you call that dirty? Of course not. Maybe the rule is dumb and should be changed, but he's going to look for every advantage possible within the rules, as any competitor would.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||C'mon. If it's legal, it's||
C'mon. If it's legal, it's not dirty. Injuries happen in football. There doesn't always have to be an enemy.
