|11 hours 15 min ago||Yards per attempt||
Total yards is stupid for comparison. Some teams have had BYES already (MSU) and if you're up a lot, you're going to run it more. Better to look at YPA.
Now that makes more sense. We are #14! MSU #82, haha.

You're right. They should be throwing food on the field too.

|3 days 13 hours ago||Am I an alarmist?||
Umm, Perhaps I'm seeing this incorrectly as the plays aren't in their full length, but Miller at Center consistently dives his head under to look back, then looks up, then immediately snaps it. I see no delay. Isn't this what MSU exploited a few years back in back to back games to jump the snap? Should we be worried?
|3 days 15 hours ago||Same feeling||
I tend to agree. JMFR should have a star. How could he not if he was considered the #1 LB for 2014 according to 247sports? Link. I know, I know. He's moved to MLB and has been sub-par at the new position. But the season hasn't even finished, I don't think you can take away his "star" status quite yet.
A little less surprised that Frank Clark didn't get one, but I can understand that logic.

We are the Minnesota gophers of the 70s and 80s. Pray we don't become the gophers of the past two decades. I can't handle that.
|1 week 3 days ago||Away games||
Wow 2023 will be a b**** for OSU. They'll have 6 road games. The Big Ten starts a 9-game schedule starting in 2016. In odd years, OSU will play 4 home and 5 away games. Now adding @ND, that's going to be 6(!!!!) road games. They should have @UM, @Indiana, @Rutgers and two from the Big10 West.
edit: you know, now that I think about it, that's not going to be that tough. 6 aways games is going to be the norm. For instance, UM has set itself up to have 6 road games every odd year starting in 2017 Florida(Arlington), 2019 @Arkansas, 2021 @VaTech, 2023 @UCLA, 2025@Oklahoma
|1 week 4 days ago||Denard single-highhandedly||
Denard single-highhandedly won us many a game. If not for him, I worry what our record would have been during the span of his career. Sure there were some games that got away from him, but you can't expect perfection 100% of the time.
|1 week 4 days ago||Injuries||
I understand that coaches don't want the opposing team to know who is injured so they can gameplan around it... but seriously... it's annoying.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||The punk coverage just makes||
The punk coverage just makes me sad. When presented with facts, why can't the coaches see one formation is vastly superior to the other? Are they presented with these facts? Do they even care? Mind blowingly sad.
At least on the receiving end we have two players that I'm been sorely missing since Breaston-a-plooza.
edit: looks like creelymonk10 beat me to it. Took too long to type.

Time to redact your post. Add me to the list of "does not work still". Firefox 31.0 (updated)

too soon, man. too soon.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Blame game||
Why should the school blame themselves? Clearly the only person to blame is the one who made up the story. You certainly don't expect to be blatantly lied to. Let alone with a whopper of a hero story that is "backed" by his family members.

I can think of stranger stories...

You know, if you don't like it, you don't have to read it. They're not putting a gun to your head. Just the same as you don't read every article in a newspaper. Pick the one's you're interested in and read those.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks||
Seth, I will say I hate "fantasy football", but I actually do enjoy the site's draftgeddon. As you mentioned, it's more of a top 100 type thing and I do believe your combined work helps me understand our opponents better. So thank you. Before each game I actually recognize the names now and know who to fear or cackle with glee as we make said player look silly.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Gross||
Not a fan of any color turf. It's just too fake and distracting. Perhaps I'm in the minority, but I'd much prefer having a real grass field. And if for reasons that can't be (poor drainage, muddy, etc.), then I'll accept turf but keep it green.
Now kids, get off my *real grass* lawn! /steps off porch.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Despite the lack of "push" to||
Despite the lack of "push" to be a leader in previous years (aka keeps to himself; it's not a bad thing), Gardner is practically the only offensive senior. If he doesn't get one, it would be shocking.

As long as Brian isn't allowed to take any Miracle fruit beforehand. I'll attest, you can drink straight vinegar and not have even a tiny bit of reaction.

The end of OT season can't come fast enough...
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Think Auburn fans. In all||
Think Auburn fans. In all likelihood it's split 50/50 or 60/40, and there's no other team that compares. So maybe 50% of the state of Alabama hates the Tide (think Auburn fans), whereas only 40% hate Auburn and 10% hate Tennessee (think Tide fans). So the Tide wins, "most hated". Makes perfect sense.
edit: beat me to it. I'm a slow typer.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Help clarify||
I'm not too up to date on what the repurcussions would be. Do any policy changes have to be voted upon by all power conferences? Or can say the SEC decide they want to pay players $10k, wherease the Big12 wants to only pay $3k? This could get tricky with differences in recruiting tactics and I for one would hope that all power conferences would have to play by the same rules.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Anybody else initially||
Anybody else initially mistake this for Jarrod Wilson and think, "AMSHG strikes again!". Basketball is so not on my radar right now.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I agree wholeheartedly. My||
I agree wholeheartedly. My idea would be a legend jersey patch with the name and/or number on it. Possibly even a sticker for the helmet. But let the player keep his original number. Jordan Kovacs will always be 32 and not 11. And in the future I would have liked 32 to become its own legend patch for gifted walkons
|6 weeks 2 days ago||At first I was like "damn,||
At first I was like "damn, could they have picked a player with more of a gut". Then my next reaction drifted to... "are they laughing? is this a joke? they clearly aren't super hyped". Now I can't tell if I'm being trolled or those really are the new uniforms.

Exactly. We should be releasing live wolverines after each TD

Kind of in line with the above poster. The victim has come forward and said she actually started the fight. I can't tell you if that means she started throwing punches or verbal abuses first. But I think that's part of the reason for reinstatement bc her penalty for the altercation was only a month suspension.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||What was the BIG thinking||
While msu got the sweet end of that deal, it was only temporary. They also got screwed in general like UM by having a schedule of @OSU and @UM in the same year. Their home schedule in odd years will be as bad as our home schedule in even years.

MSU never sent an alert to the students so it wasn't taken that seriously, apparently.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||On second thought...||
This should be a posbang thread on the sole reason that OSU is now in the same division as us and Sparty! Now our rivals ACTUALLY have to play each other. No Sparty winning the Legends by skipping OSU and Wisconsin in the same year. And also the elimination of "The Game" being meaningless if both Mich and OSU having already won their divisions.
