|26 weeks 5 days ago||Living in Alabama the last 9||
Living in Alabama the last 9 years and begrudgingly seeing Saban's program firsthand, I totally agree. Bama's OL year in and year out has been top notch. Just look at all of their great RBs that have gone on to be mediocre in the NFL (ie the OL made them great). Getting the OL right is the most necessary foundation to a great, stable offense.

Just curious RollDamnTide, do you live in the state of Alabama? If so, what area? I've lived in Huntsville, AL since 2005.

What a game by Hardaway! Let's hope his new found shooting stroke continues well into the tournament. If he can continue to be a viable main offensive threat like he was this game, we have the potential to go several rounds deep into the tourney.

I haven't read all of the previous 200 comments, so forgive me if this has been considered. But how about a list a nominees get accumulated over the course of the school year, and in late spring/early summer there is a week long open voting period on the blog as to who gets accepted.
I don't think it should be limited to 1/sport/year. With the above idea, you'll have the list of everyone over the year to vote on, and the acceptance can be limited to the top 3 or 4 vote getters that also meet the percentage criteria. Brian can make the call each year whether to limit it to 3,4 or whatever based on his persuasions.
I like the sliding scale Brian thought of as well.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Does any body else find it||
Does any body else find it odd that it seems like we've completely failed to capitalize on our successful season with respect to recruiting this past month or so? All of our big name recruits have come before or during the season when the coaching staff's ability was still in question. Now, after seeing their success, it seems like our top potential recruits have all ended up elsewhere. I thought they'd be running to us with a program like Michigan and a great coaching staff. What's up??? It's frustrating to see us sink in the rankings after our tangible success.

A 3-loss state team will not be ranked ahead of Michigan. I guarentee it. I think it's perfectly fine to root for Wisconsin in that game.
As long as Georgia loses to LSU we'll be fine.

" but at least with [Meyer] at the helm, we’ll not only get beat by a clean, talented program"
I'm not sure if somebody has already brought this up, bought Meyer had anything but a clean program at Florida. He had so many players get in trouble off the field that it's difficult to count them all. In most cases, Meyer gave them a slap on the wrist and let them play shortly there after.
If Meyer goes to Ohio, it will be more of the same.

I don't know if I'd call special teams a push, since they had a turnover on one and Gallon averaged 15.5 return yards on four punts!
We actually won the special teams battle decisively! When was the last time we could say that?

What a beautiful statement that has been nonexistent the past three years.

Man, I hate the fact that we lost to that trash.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||We did punt a lot on State's||
We did punt a lot on State's end of the field, but the problem was that it was always 4th and long. If it's 4th and less than 5 yards from inside the 40 I see Hoke going for most of those. But they were all 4th and long. And also, Hagerup was pinning them back quite well, so maybe that played into Hoke's thinking as well.

Dantonio suspend Gholston?!? Yeah right. Most likely he'll give the kid an at-a-boy. The little prick. It was probably at Dantonio's bidding.

|3 years 38 weeks ago||Another possibility is that||
Another possibility is that due to the timing of the play, Schofield didn't really have the chance to over run the SLB in the 2nd case. On the interception play, Schofield would've had to look through the gap to see the LB coming, in the 4th and 1 it appears the LB came through the gap at the same instance Schofield got to it.
While I don't doubt the idea that the coaches pointed out what he did wrong the first time around, the timing of this play may have made it easier for him to fix his initial mistake.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||These coaches have totally||
These coaches have totally won me over. That strip by Gordon to cause NUs 2nd turnover was beautiful. That's pure coaching and was entirely forced by the defense. Gordon stopped the runner, and waited to go for the ball until there was another defender to stop his progress. Hoke was stoked about it too. That was the first time I've seen him hyped up on the sideline. It was good to see.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||The 'tackled in bounds' stat||
The 'tackled in bounds' stat doesn't mean as much these days with the new rule change from a few years back where it's only in the last two minutes of each half where the clock stops for going out of bounds. Announcers still make this mistake in a lot of games where the commend a guy for getting out of bounds or a defender for tackling in bounds.
Another worthwhile point is that Hoke made another great 4th down decision which led to our 2nd touchdown.

" The Buckeyes defense eschewed pressure to focus on coverage, figuring that the only way they were going to score points was by getting pick-sixes"
Great line. It's funny because it's so true. Oh, I hope Ohio's incompetence continues through the end of November.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Man, Brian, I never thought||
Man, Brian, I never thought anyone could make me depressed about a 58-0 blowout but you just about succeeded. Baby Seal U Jr. or not, this was an extremely encouraging (and enjoyable) win in my book. We executed very well on both sides of the ball, and while the opposition has some to do with that, Michigan still had to do their part to make the plays and they did. Items of note that I took away:
1) Continued development/signs of promise for BWC & Countess.
2) Competency in the offensive passing game.
3) Domination for both our OL and DL.
4) The safeties barely had to do anything for the 3rd game in a row.
5) Flashes of creativity from Borges.
6) Domination of a Division 1A Big Ten opponent!

It actually saved Denard on that play. Because the shirt was elastic to some extant, the defensive player wasn't able to bring Denard down. So it seems to go both ways

Well done, sir!
I haven't read all of the comments above, but I'm sure they include some of the ideas for improvement that I am thinking of. I look forward to this evolving into a great tool over the rest of the year.

That 'Mad Magician' video is awesome! I've never seen that before. I love the creativity shown throughout it. Anybody know what year that was from?

Is there any chance that you can pass forward the survey results to someone in the athletic department. With mgoblog's clout, you'd think it would count for something.

Unless I missed him before, I believe this is the first tv shot of the year for him. I feared that he had graduated.
