Heiko said in a podcast that reports from practice were that he couldn't cover anybody.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Home games for NW||
Home games for NW usually feature a ton of Michigan fans, so that's not necessarily a bad thing.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Rock, Paper, Scissors||
It refers to the coach's ability to call the right play at the right time and/or have the right play design for the situation (e.g. properly throwing rock when the opposing coach throws scissors).
|9 weeks 1 hour ago||I like the idea||
I like the idea of a running efficiency statistic like Borges mentioned. I'm not sure if I've been living under a rock, but I've never heard it mentioned like that before. I think that would be an valuable thing for Brian, Seth, or another contributor with time to track.
|9 weeks 21 hours ago||Something||
Something can be unsurprising and upsetting at the same time.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||He returned to the game||
He returned to the game, so he's probably fine.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Good thing||
Good thing that wasn't offensive. Since when is it okay to insult others' religions on this board?
|9 weeks 3 days ago||It's happening at||
It's happening at every school, we are just not an exception. Time to change something (either stadium experience or our expectations).

I was a kickstarter.

What method are you using to ship the magazines? I am moving in a little over a week and can forward my mail, but if you are using UPS or Fedex i don't think I will get the magazine in time. Can I give you a new address to send it to? Thanks.

Kenny Demens taking over for Obi Ezeh in 2010 is a great example of this.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||oh damn||
oh damn, I gave up, the stream was too bad to make it worth my while.

nice diving catch by Peppers
|10 weeks 6 days ago||This team has some||
This team has some seriously funny guys. It makes rooting for them so much more fun.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Weren't some||
Weren't some on MLB Network last year? Did they commit to not doing that again?
|11 weeks 3 hours ago||I agree||
I agree to a certain extent. Reporters absolutely need to try to ask more useful questions. I'm really just saying that I'm somewhat sympathetic in general to the reporters at press conferences because they are walking a narrow line sometimes. Heiko wasn't exactly the best example for me to use for a few reasons. First, not every coach would be as nice to Heiko as Borges has been, and even Borges has been short with him at times. Second, Heiko writes for a much different audience than Joe Schmo from the local news. Regular reporters aren't pestering coaches about more technical things because they would be over the head of and/or uninteresting to the average reader.
|11 weeks 5 hours ago||I think it||
I think it goes both ways. Reporters ask lazy questions because they know that coaches rarely give candid answers. In return, coaches give crappy generic answers because they don't want to reveal real information and because they don't respect the reporters' questions. Look at how much of a struggle it has been for Heiko to get real X's and O's answers out of the coaches regarding certain topics.

Was a true freshman...
but he's not anymore.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||It probably||
It probably wasn't the students' money that paid for the tickets.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||I don't think snowflakes||
I don't think snowflakes need to be negative, we do snowflake threads after every game. It was started as a way to prevent everybody with a unique idea/opinion (i.e. snowflake) from starting a new post and cluttering up the board.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||I totally agree||
I totally agree, as long as he continues to not blow assignments back there he is an actual asset for the defense instead of the hopefully-not-huge-negative that many were expecting before the start of the season.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Yeesh||
Yeesh, this was sooo negative. Also you guys are kind of harsh to Heiko, I am interested to hear about what the coaches are seeing in practice.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||yes||
|12 weeks 6 days ago||If you are going to define dual threat so||
If you are going to define dual threat so narrowly then of course no one will be able to come up with an example of one who won the superbowl. The zone read has barely been present in the NFL before the past two years. Dual threat means a threat to pass the ball or run it, which Aaron Rodgers absolutely is.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Although people don't usually think of||
Although people don't usually think of him as a dual threat guy, Aaron Rodgers meets all the criteria. He's been one of the top three rushers on his team every year that he has been a starter, and he is excellent at extending plays and throwing on the run. So to answer your question, 2010 would be the last time a team won the with a dual threat QB.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I believe that was Tommy Schutt.||
I believe that was Tommy Schutt. He tried to commit here, but was turned away, then immdiately tried to commit to ND, but they also said no (I think, someone correct me if I'm remembering wrong). Finally he ended up at OSU and was going to be a starter this year before getting injured.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||I'm putting the over/under||
I'm putting the over/under for number of times I watch this game this week at 5. I've already watched two replays.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||I hate the NFL||
I hate the NFL rules for what is and is not a catch, they need a serious common sense revision.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||How?||
How? He said important player, not starting QB.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Whether he is||
Whether he is insightful or not his voice alone annoys the shit out of me.
