I'm not afraid of Indiana. We're much, much better than them, and they've had some flukey shit go their way to get the results they have against us. As long as Yogi Ferrell doesn't play like Oscar Robertson again, they don't have enough weapons to hurt us. That Sanford guy was just running at the basket like Rodney Stuckey on coke, no chance of actually scoring the ball, and getting ridiculous foul calls.
We should beat them by ten, at least, all things being equal.

Coaches never sound good when they're underpeforming expectations. Hoke's "we've got to coach better" line sounds noble when we're 11-2 but grates when we're 7-6. It's easy to say "I've got to coach better" when you're pleasing the fanbase. It's harder to say it when it's abundently true and the fanbase is riled.
I respect Hoke a lot for continuing to put the blame for shortcomings squarely on himself even when the pressure mounts. Borges couldn't resist the sirens this season and dipped into this "execution" comments.
Izzo is taking it to a whole nother level. No subtlety at all. Shameful stuff from a college coach. From a grownup, really.

WTF. This Stanford thing is just careening toward the basket like an out-of-control sixth grader and keep getting bailed out with foul calls.

You'd think Indiana was 29-0 and Yogi Ferrell was a Naismith finalist the way we play them

Needs to get laid.
|2 days 6 hours ago||The reason this site is so||
The reason this site is so popular is because it's not a bunch of 50 year olds with parking passes in the Blue Lot and insider bitzzzz (althought they're getting more access, it seems). It's intelligent people applying thougtful analysis to a subject that usually has the luxury of neither. MGoBlog empowers the average nerd fan to have confidence in his or her data (i.e., personal observations and statistics). Sometimes they get it right (e.g., Borges), sometimes not (e.g., RichRod). But people "show their work," are intellectually honest, and nobody pretends to be something they're not.

This is all so fascinating to me. Who are you? I mean, who are you such that you are able to attend spring practices? Who is MaizeMan? Do you have friends on the staff? Do you work for the athletic department? Are you just making stuff up? I'm always curious who these self-proclaimed insiders are.

That guy shouldn't be taken seriously and single-handedly guarantees that that site will never be respectable outside its little niche following.
|2 days 7 hours ago||Huh, interesting. I've been||
Huh, interesting. I've been reading their message board off and on for about a year or two, so I don't know all the history. They talk regularly about having attended practices, and some of the info seems pretty darn specific. Most of it is pretty general, though (e.g., "Godin looks bigger and has a motor").
They hyped up Bellomy big time during spring 2012, and I caused a little fracas over there by calling them out after his historic Nebraska coming-out party.
I guess I find it hard to believe that somebody would put years and years into cultivating a lie like that. Pretty sad, if true.
I don't know what to believe anymore!

The guy with the handle MaizeMan over there--who authored the articles linked to above--provides some excellent insight and tidbits. I'm surprised they don't get more traffic than they do because of it. He's pretty balanced in his assessments.

Many believed that photo captured the ethos of the MSU fanbase so perfectly that it must be remembered forever. Kind of like the V-J photo of the sailor kissing the nurse in Times Square captured the ethos of postwar America.

I'm convinced that the schizophrenic complexity of our offense last season was about three-quarters of the explanation for our abhorrent line play. I expect our line to be better this year, even without Lewan and Schofield.

Yeah, Indiana will be confident and fighting for their postseason lives now against us. Would've preferred OSU win this one and by a lot,

Both games will be tough. We haven't truly dominated many games this Big Ten season (sorry, Nebraska).

That was an awesome play, you can see exactly how they drew it up to clear out the back corner and set a pick for GRIII to get over there alone. LeVert's pass was a little late and a little too lofty--came about an inch from being picked off and game over. High-risk play. Glad it worked.

Good point. Taylor Lewan was Taylor Lewan, and nobody on the roster can come close to providing the one-on-one advantage he gave us on the edge. I can live with getting beat off the edge every now and then if it means more than 2 yards per carry.

Hopefully these young guys bond together, become a brotherhood, and wear a chip on their shoulders. The talent is there, and if they have the right attitude, approach, and scheme and they'll be better than our line last year.
