The Denard Dropdown

Nice. Another westsider. My grandmother lives on the lake in Hamlin, so I've driven past those farms a bunch.

I grew up in Chili but went to MCQ - what about you? Always good to see some fellow WNYers.

I grew up outside of Rochester as well. When I was looking at colleges, I was told that RIT had too many bricks and not enough chicks.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||The 100 Yard Lie||
Whitlock's arguments aren't original and they aren't even recent. Rick Telander wrote a book in the late eighties called the 100 Yard Lie. I remember reading it in middle school; I never looked at amateur sports the same. Of course, Telander didn't call it "shamateur" because he wanted to attract a slightly more, shall we say, sophisticated audience.
Unfortunately, just pointing out that the NCAA is a hypocritical sham doesn't mean much (and shouldn't be an excuse for anyone to break the rules that they have agreed to play by); people have been doing it for literally decades and there is no sign that it will change any time soon.

As Chris Rock (not our Chris Rock) would say - Its the Media! Its the Media!
When the Freep first broke the news on our stretching violations, a good friend and OSU fan called me to say "Now you'll now what its like to have ESPN dragging you through the mud all the time!"

You can root for him while he is in high school every time he isn't playing McQuaid. Frankly, I'd have more fun watching his highlight reel if he sat that game out.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||A great reflection on RR||
When I pointed out that RR had held Denard out in these circumstances, in contrast to BK putting in his one-eyed woozy QB, my wife made the right point: "Good for RR, but it shouldn't be so unique that he comes in for praise for holding out a player". I think a lot of people forget that these are kids who will do anything for their coach, and their coach is an adult who needs to make the right decision for the health of his players. Unfortunately, this seems to happen too infrequently. Urban Meyer was potentially playing with Tebow's life last year when he sent him back in one week after a very serious concussion.

Or whoever the guy is who made that video. I love that guy.
I appreciate having Irish around (as well as any other knowledgeable, non-trollish FOOTs (fans of other teams)).
|2 years 29 weeks ago||The best thing about 2006||
Was what a surprise the entire season was... right up until the end. It was like Christmas every day after 2005. Although our nickel package was exposed against Ball State (as pointed out by others) and exploited by tOSU and USC, our defense was still a joy to watch.

I like the way you think, but honestly I would take dominating from Denard and showing up with reasonably competent playing skills from Lyons.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Hopefully||
The connection is that they'll both be playing for Michigan next year.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Blockers||
Bear in mind that one of the reasons a running quarterback is so effective is because he has an additional blocker when he keeps. Unless you want Denard to be that blocker, this isn't a great idea.
That being said, I'd bet we see this at some point this season as a trick play, maybe in the bowl game.

As someone who took JJ's negotiation class, keep in mind that DB has nothing to lose by saying this. Just sayin'.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||I still remembering watching that game at Scorekeepers||
and watching an incredibly terrible call in the fourth quarter (I can't even remember the play, but I think it was called a UCLA interception when it was clear it was not an interception). All these years later, I only remember the anger.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||For Foreign Language||
Das Boot, clearly the best. Au Revoir Les Enfants is great as well. But for something more recent, I have to go with Pan's Labyrinth.
