Spot on. I don't get the Tebow hate. Seems like a genuinely good dude.

The box score thing is a Harbaugh trait to the core. I remember during the 2011 coaching search looking through Stanford box scores, seeing tons of games where Stanford would outgain a team by like 75 yards and win by 28+ points. Part of it is that his teams take care of the ball, but a big part is that they make opportunities count and play well on third down.

I agree. I'm just saying that Magnus is incorrect when he says intent is irrelevant. It's clearly relevant by the letter of the rule.
|3 days 19 hours ago||I don't think that's true,||
I don't think that's true, Magnus. This is direct from the rule book: "'Targeting' means that a player takes aim at an opponent for purposes of attacking with forcible contact that goes beyond making a legal tackle or a legal block or playing the ball."

And it's not even close.

You're just going to allude to having a bodyguard and then not give us anything more on that?
|1 week 2 days ago||You really think that a guy||
You really think that a guy who has played football for years, and has been training with Harbuagh for this exact moment for the past 12+ months, is now changing his throwing motion in mid-season because Tom Brady stopped in to be the honorary captain?

I'm sure there's at least some reality to this -- these guys have editors and those editors want them to write simple stories that please a mass audience that follows Michigan casually. I bet many of them would prefer to write with more depth if they could.

Yep. Really, the two great concerns coming out of this game are:
Might still be awhile before we find out the answer to #2, but #1 is going to get sorted out in the next few weeks against better defenses.

I hope he's okay.
But I also demand that Ace gif that clip. It's perfect. The Tough Guy standing up getting ready to take the hit. Tough Guy backing off at the last second. Unexpecting Coach turning just as Peppers bears in. The wide "oh SHIIII" eyes. The hat flying off. Liufau saying "are you okay?" in slow motion.
A+ execution there.

I asked this last week. Scanning on the phone is fine, but be forewarned that your service might be crappy around the stadium, so the stubhub app may not load your tickets easily. I almost the band entrance last week because of this despite arriving a solid 15-20 min early.
|1 week 6 days ago||Totally agree, but I'm||
Totally agree, but I'm actually kind of happy about that, becuase I figure if more users come onboard, performance may suffer or they may decide to increase the price. It's a spectacular deal right now.

It depends on the area. In Ann Arbor, I only get ABC on demand. But all ABC sports are streamed live through the WatchESPN app, so you still have access (you just have to switch apps).

Looks like you're in luck, if it's worth 15/month to you:

Don't even need the playstation (why they branded it PlaystationVue, I have no idea). You can activate with the FireStick. I can't speak to the quality of the stick as I have the FireTV box, but many people like theirs.
Just 1 TV caveat: local broadcasts vary in place to place on what deals they have. In Ann Arbor, I don't get live ABC, but I get CBS and NBC and FOX. I get "ABC on demand," which is most of ABC's shows the next day. It may vary in your area, and so I think some people need an antenna for local broadcast.
For sports on ABC, you can watch them live through the WatchESPN app (using your PSVue login), since Disney owns ABC and ESPN. The only downside there is while WatchESPN lets you watch games after they finish, I don't know if you can start 30 minutes late and pick up at the beginning of the game.
PSVue also has really great reddit page that has a ton of info: reddit.com/r/Vue/.
|1 week 6 days ago||Same boat as you. I||
Same boat as you. I downgraded to the cheapest internet and barely notice any difference in speed, though I don't stream a ton of stuff at once. PSVue uses about 6mb of my 10, but I can still use the internet just fine while I'm watching. Two streams at once would be a no-go though.
|1 week 6 days ago||I've also heard complaints||
I've also heard complaints about Sling's picture quality. PSVue is 60FPS, crystal clear.
|1 week 6 days ago||DVR is all through Sony's||
DVR is all through Sony's server, so really, you're just calling up the one copy they have of the program that you "DVR'd" and they stream it to you. They only keep programs up to 28 days, so once a program is 29 days old, you can't watch it anymore.
For sports, I don't know who's watching 29 days after the fact, but I can see how it can be irritating for other shows (doesn't bother me, though).
The nice thing is that the amount of stuff you can DVR is unlimited. I can call up any college football game from the last month, on demand.
|1 week 6 days ago||FireTV/Stick + PSVue will do||
FireTV/Stick + PSVue will do everything you want for 35/month + your internet fees. I pay 20 bucks a month for Comcast's 10mbps, and it runs fine (though I only use 1 stream at a time). You'd need a stick/box for each TV, so there's that startup cost.
You get unlimited DVR of anything you want for 28 days.
The deal is almost too good to be true, to be honest. The quality is fantastic, and you get logins for BTN2GO, WatchESPN, and Fox Sports Go, so you can watch on any device or your computer.
|1 week 6 days ago||Kodi itself is just a||
Kodi itself is just a user-modded media playform, but the free TV streams you can access through it are the usual suspects (firstrowsports, atdhe, etc) that are obviously not legal. Not that anyone is going to knock down your door, but just FYI.
Also, you're going to deal with poor quality/unreliable sources just like any other illegal streaming. Michigan football is easily worth my $35/month check to PSVue.

I love the way you can sense, just from reading a transcript, how stunned the coaches are when asked an actual football question by the MGoStaff.
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||What makes you say that? Raw||
What makes you say that? Raw physical ability is very important in the draft, and Kalis has it in spades. Maybe scouts think that his targeting issues won't be a problem when there's more coaching time to address them.
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||I think issue was that many||
I think issue was that many of us interpreted Brian as saying Smith should have been cutting left, to the left of Poggi's block. At least that's what I thought when I initially started the discussion.
I think Brian is actually saying Smith should have cut hard right, outside of Asiasi's block. Which makes sense to me, though I think it's risky for backs like Smith to get too bouncy.

I thought the "runny air raid" was what happened after putting down a plate of Mr. Spots hot wings.

That's what always stuck out to me watching Harbaugh-era Stanford highlights. Luck standing back there with All. Day. Long.
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||I agree -- pursuit is no||
I agree -- pursuit is no problem on that play, though I have to imagine he's got contain responsibility for the RB there, so the gain is on him. That play is one of the big negatives I recalled. I would think that's a -2 on UFR -- Peppers saved it from being a 15-20 yard gain.
There are other examples of worse pursuit effort; we'll see if Brian raises it in the UFR.
Obviosuly, these are small caveats. He looks great for a freshman, and these are easily fixable issues.
|2 weeks 22 hours ago||I'll be interested to see||
I'll be interested to see what the UFR says on Gary. I'm guessing it'll be up and down -- I noticed 5 or 6 plays that looked like big negatives. Mostly pass rush lane issue and loss of contain when optioned -- things that you would expect to be difficult for a first year player.
I was also a little surprised to see him often coasting when the play got past him; I'm guessing that will be another thing the staff will harp on him for, especially given that his speed allows him to be a really effective pursuit defender. It's going to be fun to watch him develop over the next three years.

Because he Spreight the ball all over the field last week? Eh? Get it??
I'll show myself out.
