|5 years 10 weeks ago||That Henne||
makes me salivate. What a great throw. We can only hope this is the beginning of the Henne era, Pennington is benched once recovered, and we get our 2nd Brady in the league!
|5 years 10 weeks ago||omfg||
what a pass by Henne. You gotta love it. If you are not watching this you are robbing yourself!
|5 years 10 weeks ago||Argh||
I benched him in my ppr ffl not thinking he would already be a prime target in ny. Shame on me. I lost my game by 8 pts and he wouldve delivered the win had i left him in.
Great to see him doing well, and Henne is having the best game of his young career. 12 of 15 122 yrds and a td.
Go Blue! Normally Id have 0 interest in watching these 2 teams, UM gives us a game worth watching!
|5 years 11 weeks ago||You're right!||
The cup IS half full!

I only comment because I once had a connecting flight thru there. From the air, parts looked liked Vegas. From the ground, scared as shit. Their customs cards mention prohibited things, and say some will = DEATH (true!).
|5 years 12 weeks ago||I think denard||
is a qb for all his years. Unless UM gets another stud QB outside of Gardner, you have to keep him there, and even if you do, you keep him there from experience probably. I can see, though, him being a qb for 4 years, than an NFL team drafting him in the later rounds for another position. The man does have skills!
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Thats the thing||
If you put both in, the enemy D would expect a designed DR play. Depending on frequency of having both in (which should be rare), you put DR in as a decoy. But a play where one QB made a lateral to the other QB, only to have the receiving QB bomb one downfield would be sick.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||I always liked Gruden||
His TV stint just makes it more so. Hopefully after sometime, he goes back to a sideline where he deserves to be.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||agree/disagree||
50% of the time or more, 3 stars a are "meh". For an elite program, most 3 stars should be your back ups. Recruiting evaluations are certainly not perfect, and there are some great players who were lowly ranked, but on average, over the long term, the higher rated players have a higher success rate.
Agree with you 100% on the DC turnover + lack of Barwis traing. Gittleson's methods were severely outdated, and its going to be great when a senior means four years of Barwis. I hope GERG stays long term. He is not HC material, just a really good DC. Hopefully he realizes that and doesnt jump ship if our D has success and someone offers.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||I agree with most of that||
and I think the Cissoko bashing is a bit much. He's a good player that is generally in position. His size does not help, but most of his deficiencies are issues that can be coached.
Also keep in mind that UM puts him out there man a lot. I like his effort, and his attitude. I think he is capable of being really good, its just up to him if he puts in the work to make it happen.
Mike Martin is beast, and I love what Roh is doing. It's hard for me to call him undersized in a system that puts a premium on quickness. Yes he will add bulk in the program, but I don't think UM is now going for the big hogs. I know Barwis will never tell him to eat a pizza every night before bed!
|5 years 12 weeks ago||One of an athletes worse fears||
Weight room accidents can be far worse than many on the field. I remember in HS where a teammate over extended on a reverse leg exercise (cant remember the name these days - its the one where your on your back lying down, kind of doint a squat with your legs on weights).
It was one of the 1st days of training, the kid was new, and the coaching staff failed to provide proper technique on the machine. He overextended, putting his legs to a fully straight lock position, of one of his legs gave way and pretty much snapped. Yound kid trying to be macho + a coaching staff that didnt prep the kids enough = a debilitating injury. These days the staff wouldve been fired and sued to oblivion (perhaps overkill) - those days - they kept their job - amazing.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||I agree to a point||
But to a dedicated troll, its all the same. If you make a bunch of fake rah rah rah posts, you will get great rankings from most, especially koolaid drinkers. Then the troll is unleashed.
Conversely, you could make a great post, with a great argument, backed up with references, and get neg banged to hell because it didnt agree with some people, especially koolaid drinkers.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Only option 1 excludes arbitrary decisions||
While I hate to see garbage diaries or posts (which yours of course isn't, nice diary btw), all the other options would have the possible effect of stifling free speech. If free speech means an idiot gets by from time to time, so be it.
I would be more worried about excluding dissent. A point system means you would have to be a super dedicated troll, and after time they would fade individually. New trolls would of course pop up to be sure, but all would realize over time, spending hours to make a troll post, then banned, then more hours on a new account, etc etc.
There are posts and diaries that are worthwhile, and worthy reads, that may contain subject matter that disagrees with most people. You run into a bad situation if moderators actively forbid your posts just because they disagree. Ultimately, options 2 and 3 lead to option 4.
Personally, I love what Rich is doing, but if others do not, let them speak. Conversely, I hated Lloyd as a coach (and only as a coach of coarse). Back in the day, I would have made posts slamming him for decision making. If the mods felt he was uber, I would have been forbidden to make such statements.
The point system is the only system in my opinion.

|5 years 13 weeks ago||I think||
There is no doubt Tate, at this stage, is not only more advanced than Chad in so many ways, that he maybe more along now, than Chad was several years down the road.
Another thing, Chad, on any year, never showed the pocket awareness that Tate has shown in 3 games. Its almost like a violinist whose been playing since 4 yrs old.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Historically speaking||
and this is just observation based on personally witnessed things, I'm almost kind of worried for tate. This is the oh no the glass is half full argument, but, from all the things I have seen, and in many sports, it's quite often that the ones that start the strongest do not finish as such. And by this, I dont necassarily mean the collegiate career only, its sometimes the pros expectations.
Sometimes you see someone show such brilliance early on, and then what they showed was the best they ever did, ie, they never developed.
IF Tate develops and shows a good improvement curve, he will be in the pros. I have never seen a freshman, and rarely see an nfl qb, that can throw the way he does on the run.
At this point, I hope my Broncos get him!
|5 years 13 weeks ago||by duration i think||
John L was bad, but didnt last long. If someone is bad longer, doesnt that count?
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Lou||
I can agree with that, especially in recent times. He was terribad when the program quite wasnt. John Cooper still won, just not against us (so maybe hes the best!)
Corso - who knows. he didnt do well, but when you're handed poop and asked to make into steak, tough gig.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||On Indiana||
I think more so than the mac teams we played, we will rely on athletic and conditioning dominance. I fear not the hoses!
With the substitutions on offense, more that we have ever seen, the "let down" scares me a lot less with RR. I'm not saying it wont happen, just with less frequency than the recent past.
Go Blue and we will beat the line by more than a td!
|5 years 13 weeks ago||amen to that||
I've been on trips where we went quite some time out of our way because Gary was the direct route.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||At the moment at Halftime||
Miami's 2 leading WR's...........
Brian Hartline and Ted Ginn.. Oh no!
13 13 at half, Ill go with colts by 2 TDs after 2nd half.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Not to be slightly OT BUT||
I not sold on Kiffin, but I think he'll get UT there as well.
On a side note, espn's reporting, or lack thereof:
Headline from main page link - > Meyer rips Vols' play calling; Kiffin fires back
Headline from actual story - > Kiffin rebuffs Meyer's comments
The "rip" in question - > "When I saw them start handing the ball off, I didn't feel like they were going after the win," Meyer said.
"The way we lose a game there is throw an interception. Why put yourself in that position? Let's find a way to win the game. We're not trying to impress the pollsters. We're trying to win the game. A lot of it had to do with the way they were playing. It made our life a little easier."
A story from espn with all the integrity of some detroit outlets...
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Did he see #9??????||
I sent this email to Brian -
On the picture captioned "look at all that space" do you think Tate saw potential blockers instead. After seeing the great pics and video on your site, I think I've changed my opinion on the play. When I saw it game day, and in replay, I kept thinking the same thing - why not up the f'n middle! But now I see that pic, then I watch the video, and I cannot help but to believe he saw Odoms, and was expected a block. Stonum mad his block, and Odoms epically failed to throw a block. Oh the what if...
Would love to know what you think. Keep up the great work and thanks for the daily addiction.
(no, not THAT Bobby Sanders...)
What do you guys think? I would to ask Tate. I think he saw Odoms, and if the block would have been there, we'd be discussing a another magnificent play rather than a missed opportunity.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||ESPN?!?!||
Is this not a case of the news making the news? Did ESPN not know this beforehand? (of course they did)
This is as bad or worse than when reporters ask question every year about recruits who the coach cant talk about.
An ESPN show videos a coach with recruits, and then reports its a violation, citing the bylaw.
Kiffin is a 1st class douche, who unfortunately bears amazing resembles to the new coach of my beloved Denver Broncos, but this story is more amazing because of the source of the violation, ESPN, than the nozzle, Kiffin.
