Remember how great the practice hype was on Donnal?
I'm glad I saw his 4 minute Kentucky highlight film posted by Skiptoomylou22. That makes me feel a whole lot better.

1 for 8 from the field (0 for 5 from 3pt) doesn't cut it.
Plus he had an 0 for 2 on one of his trips to the line.
|1 week 5 days ago||Probably confused by the grammar?||
What they speak is "Thee", not "The".
What appears on their university seal is "The OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY".
All those ignorant buckeyes have been mispronouncing "The", I assume, in an attempt to elevate their status.

It will be interesting to see how many season tickets they sell for next year. They couldn't sell out during their recent peak years. It will only go down going forward.

Click on "replay" tab at top of the page and find the game and click on it. The replay does not have halftime.
I could not stream it last night as usual without signing up to some unknown malware site. It was only streamed on two feeds.
Any game shown on ESPN is replayed within hours of completion.

|2 weeks 3 days ago||drzoidburg these are the facts about Brady & Henson||
In 1998 Brady was clearly the starter and Henson was the backup. Henson came in in bad losses (ND, down 36-13; Syracuse, down 31-7) or blow-out wins (Eastern, up 38-13; Hawaii, up 35-3)
In 1999 Brady did share the QB position with Henson. Henson became more of a change of pace QB. I don't believe he ever had more snaps than Brady in a single game. I believe part of the sharing was Lloyd trying to keep Henson involved so as to give him additional incentive from not pursuing his baseball career.
Brady 200 of 329 for 2427 yds
Henson 21 of 47 for 254 yds
Brady 180 of 295 for 2217 yds
Henson 47 of 90 for 546 yds
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Harwell and Kell||
teamed together on the radio before being split, Kell to TV while Ernie remained on the radio.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Nessler and Blackledge were great together.||
They say enough without being too wordy or overbearing.
Herbie talks too much. I prefer quality of what is said over quantity. Sounds like his mouth is too fast for his mind. He needs to slow down.
Fowler is terrible. He tries too hard to use different expressions and it sounds too clumsy and contrived.
Musberger was good in his prime, but he tries to be too overly dramatic, too often.
Give me Chris Jackson or Dick Enberg!

|6 weeks 3 days ago||I love the fact that Ruiz,||
even though a freshman, is an early enrollee.
I would feel a lot better if Filiaga was also an early enrollee. That's why I'm skeptical of him being an immediate starter, which it seems everyone is taking for granted.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||huntmich have you seen the calls in question?||
Google UM OSU 2016. Fixed?
Not all of the penalties shown are totally obvious.
Mikey Weber blasting Watson after the play was over right in front of the ref was one of the most egregious no calls I have ever seen!
Darboh thrown to the ground by DB before the pass gets there. How do you miss that!
The only answer to this is to allow a "replay for penalty review"
|7 weeks 5 days ago||jmblue look on the bright side||
The MSU punt block helped put them in the playoff where they got embarrassed on the national stage making their subsequent 3-9 season even more damaging to the future of their program.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Thank God the game wasn't close||
or Durbin would have required police protection!
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Durdin is the luckiest player alive!||
Can you imagine what would have happened to him if OSU had lost a close game?
He would have needed police protection!
|7 weeks 5 days ago||The beginning of the end for OSU and Urban Meyer!||
Phase 1, Glorious beatdown of OSU on prime time stage. Check
Phase 2, Urban experiences depression from loss. (UF Tebow bowl loss to UM redo)
Phase 3, OSU experiences massive recruit decommitting.
Phase 4, Repeat glorious beatdown in Ann Arbor in 2017.
Phase 5, Urban experiences heart palpatations from loss.
Phase 6, Urban resignation.

Where was the reverse to counter their aggressive flow to the ball on the sweep in the second half?
|10 weeks 17 hours ago||From row 70 you can see the entire field||
without watching a video board.
This is the row you enter the stadium at. There are 95 rows in the stadium.
I'd say the best seats in Michigan stadium are row 40 between the 30s.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||RCMB is the worst||
Its hard to read it very long............ even when they are in full meltdown. It's vulgar, vile, factless, and downright mean.
And they must be all alumnae, because all sparty fans will tell you is that "at least our fans attended our school!"
I once made the mistake of mentioning "Michigan" in front of my Sparty sister one Christmas and got the typical Sparty rant you hear about. Talk about an inferiority complex. I was shocked.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||We got the two top receivers in 1998||
Marquise Walker and David Terrell. We had the top recruiting class in the country. It also included Drew Henson and Justin Fargas the top rated QB and RB. They would all be 5 stars today.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Bad senior leadership, rebuilding year, no QB,||
mediocre line play on both sides of the ball. Once that negative momentum got rolling it snowballed into a super rebuilding year. and then they started to play like the old Sparty. Be competitive for half the game and finding a way to lose it at the end.
All three captains were on the bench at one time, Cox, Bullough, & O'Connor, with Bullough suspended one game for 2 personal fouls in one quarter. Reshcke being hurt didn't help
Lewerke looked competent, but he got hurt due to their poor OL. Their QB play could not have been worse. O,Connor and Terry were god awful. How did they beat OSU with those guys last year?
Dantonio is what he is. His coaches are all from his OSU ties. They provided his success. He is not some genius or innovator. Plays basic pro style O with hard nosed D. If MSU doesn't have both a good RB and QB they will struggle. They were extremely fortunate that their run lasted as long as it did.
Not only did we dominate the state in recruiting in a high talent year, but we even pulled a typical MSU type Ohio recruit in Hudson.
I can't wait to see what mediocre coach succeeds Dantonio, Narduzzi is their best hope.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||I had heard that you have to have Michigan in mind as a||
destination when you start CC. You have to take good basic courses that are required at UM (LSA). You should check with UM in advance so that you can take the courses necessary.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||His pass blocking is bad||
so he can't stay on the field.
You can't have him out there if the D knows its a run play.

My dad served in the 6th division of the Army in WWII !
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I only read the online newspaper versions now.||
I only kept getting the Sunday because I read it was worth doing so for the ads.
Now that all the ads are online, I stopped getting that. Couple that with the fact that buying the Sunday paper aided the Freep.
Now I only read the News online.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||OSU wins||
They are both overated and inconsistant but OSU has a much better defense and secondary!
However, OSU gets pounded by Alabama!
It's the only time I can root for Alabama!
|11 weeks 6 days ago||How about "THE F***ED UP osu"||
That seems the most appropriate!
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Does it really matter? Alabama rolls!||
2) Doesn't matter
3) Doesn't matter
4) Doesn't matter
Why do all quarterback-centric running offenses (esp Ohio State / Clemson / Louisville) all look like something that was created on a sandlot?
It just doesn't look like football anymore. It's a chaotic quarterback pass or optional draw on every play!
|11 weeks 6 days ago||I hate Miami||
I can never see me going to the game. Its more miles or you have to deal with that creepy airport.
