How do you know we didn't survive? It's possible that many of us did not, in fact, survive and we are now existing in a parallel universe. Maybe that's why we haven't heard from Brian. Maybe he was one of the survivors, and he just can't hear us. Maybe he's been trying to reach us.

Methinks they should have done a little more research...
Hey, it's the the thought that counts, right?
|1 day 9 hours ago||Isaac's problem||
I don't think Isaac's burst was ever the problem. He couldn't take care of the football. I don't think he's gotten more than a couple snaps since the game where he fumbled 2 or 3 times (can't remember which game exactly... maybe Maryland?).

|1 week 12 hours ago||I don't disagree with||
I don't disagree with anything you've said, except that's not exactly what I was talking about. The scenario I'm talking about isn't so much when a cutback lane is opened up, but more when the LOS becomes a giant mass of man that the RB can't run through, but he keeps his feet and just runs around the pile. And it wasn't just Howard who has done that, but it's happened in just about every game so far this year.
As others have said, it's not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things, since this has been an elite run defense despite that happening.
EDIT: For a point of reference, this is the type of run play I'm talking about. You can see that the play is designed for the RB to go up the middle, there's nothing there, he keeps his feet, bounces it outside and picks up a sizable gain.
FWIW, this is how Brian recapped the play in UFR:

Thanks for the explanation. On the DB play, how do you teach that technique to avoid PI? Because won't you get called for that if the receiver goes up for the catch, but you get in the way without making a play on the ball? In other words, you see the receiver's eyes get big, etc, but then what? If you can't see the ball, you can't make a play on it. I mean, obviously Lewis and others haven't been getting called for PI, so they're doing something right, but are they getting consistently lucky, or actually executing on a specific cue? Does that make sense?

I have a friend who's wondering what movie their costumes are referencing. I'm a really busy person so I don't have time to respond. Can someone explain the reference? You know, for my friend.

On an unrelated note, how do you guys like your new Nexuses (Nexi?)? I had the Galaxy Nexus, then a Nexus 5, but then I jumped ship for the LG G4. The 6P is an intriguing device to me, so I'm curious as to your impressions so far.

Has anyone seen a reverse angle of Lewis' INT? I wasn't able to watch the second half live, and all the highlights are the primary angle where you can't really see how Lewis got the ball out of the receiver's hands.

RB at 1:02 mark showed a serious lack of vision on his run, reminiscent of De'Veon Smith. He should have bounced it outside, where he could have picked up a sizable gain; instead he cut inside into the pile of linemen, for a minimal gain.
At a minimum, he should be benched for that. Cutting him from the team would not be out of the question. Needs moar Wheatley.

This is a good point. Calipari is also someone who's faced sanctions at every school he's coached at, yet somehow has stayed above the fray at Kentucky. I guess he's just better at skirting the rules than Brown? Maybe UK's basketball program just has better connections who are able to silence issues before they get big?

This is what I do for front-page content. You can also double-click the articles to open them in a stand-alone window. Makes it look like you're reading an email, as long as you line up the paragraph breaks so there's no images in view.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Err, did that get updated||
Err, did that get updated after it was originally posted? If not, I totally missed that. I negged myself either way. I was serious.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||My thoughts exactly. I will||
My thoughts exactly. I will look forward to seeing the in-depth breakdown of his passes, but my guess is that, even with the INT's, Rudock will grade out fairly decently. When he biffed it, he biffed it huge and it hurt. But overall, I thought he was placing the ball where it needed to be and giving the receivers opportunities to catch the ball.
The last few years, it's felt like impending doom every time the QB dropped back to pass. I didn't feel that when Rudock was dropping back. There was a sigh of relief when a pass just fell incomplete, out of harms way. Rudock was far from perfect, but it was a starting point for the season, and certainly better than anything we saw last year.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Rudock||
Definitely hurt the offense, can't whitewash that. At the same time, he was hitting the short/intermediate passes with general consistency, and I do not think Shane would have hit the same throws in and out. As bad as Rudock was, that's the best QB play I've seen from a UM QB since...I don't know when.
OL looked good in pass pro, struggled in run blocking. Need to improve that.
I liked Smith's ability to bounce off the first contact. Definitely needs to improve his vision/awareness.
I see why Perry has been getting hyped. Some great blocks on screen plays, showed good hands on that last drive. Some boneheaded mistakes (I think the first INT was on him), but he's a true freshman. Bright future for him.
Butt was awesome. As expected.
Darboh looked very good, better than I expected. Excited for him.

Wow, this looks incredible. I just got a grill, so I am seriously going to try this out. I am very much a novice though. What temperature did you have your grill at to cook them for 30-45 minutes? And did you have them over direct heat, or indirect?

Well, he pretty much has to. In this business, there are those who can get the job done and those who just can't Hackett. Hopefully he's the former.

Hey, that covers all the bases for a receiver, coach! Oh, except for these couple things he mentioned off the record:

I chuckled when I read that too...but serious question: is he saying Jeremy Clark is playing corner? I thought he was a safety.

Fantastic how he draws a clear line in paragraph four:
So anyone who disagrees with him only proves that they had an agenda for getting rid of Hoke/Brandon and only used the Morris incident to get what they wanted. Based on the responses of 99% of the people in this thread, we're all just a bunch of manipulative kronies. Hey, at least we know where we stand.
This actually demonstrates some great foresight on his part. He knew this was going to ruffle feathers, so what better way to ostricize anyone who disagrees with you by making it clear up front that anyone who dares to disagree is a loon.
Uhh...so? Seriously, lines like this are what feeds the notion that America's kids today are totally pussified. These are minor injuries.
Dislocated shoulders are no fun. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that this is a more serious injury that could have long-lasting repercussions for the player. I'm kind of surprised that an ambulance had to be called for that, as I've seen a number of guys dislocate their shoulders without needing an ambulance called, but that's neither here nor there.
If the vertebrae injury turns out to be true, that is also serious. But the fact that Moss would include that in the article without having confirmed it seriously calls into question his credibility. That line itself (let alone the ALL CAPS AND EXCLAMATIONS!!!!!!!!!!11!1) blows a gaping hole in his credibility and professionalism. Is it a confirmed injury? If yes, then you've got a story and you don't need to resort to high-school level writing. If no, then you've got nothing and you make yourself look like a moron.
I don't even...dude is just throwing crap against the wall, hoping something will stick.
