I think we'll have (relative) success on the ground again and begin to see a clear trend that the OL is improving finally. Gardner will be healthier and more dynamic running the ball, will probably throw for a lot of yards too, but also have INT issues once again.
Defensively, I hope to god we get the safety personnel sorted out, because Furman and Avery is just asking to get gashed in the running game AND passing game by that offense. That said, I like our front seven's unspectacular but disciplined style to stop the run game.
Michigan 31 - KSU 27

Gotta hand it to them, they took full advantage of the situation at their rivals, developed the talent they were able to play an aggressive style of defense. I don't like some of their on field behavior sometimes, but that defense is legitimately scary. Their offense does enough to win and is low variance, which is exactly what you want to pair with the D. Given the choice between MSU and Ohio, MSU was clearer the better and more deserving team.

Nope, Sparty straight up beat them. Ohio had some moments on incredible individual efforts, and got it going a little coming out of the half, but overall they were dominated on offense more than the score showed.
Sparty did enough on offense to get the win,

Holy shit, that coaches' handshake. *cringe*

Gotta hand it to Sparty, this defense is legit.

Looks like it's game blouses. Enough for Auburn to jump ohio if they win ugly?

Hopefully, he's just sick of the process and attention and this isn't a reflection of his feelings about Michigan. All the signs seem to be pointing the wrong way recently though. Too bad considering some of his previous comments from not too long ago made him seem like a lock.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Closest back in the day was||
Closest back in the day was the Naked Mile. After they cracked down on that, I remember most years kinda going out with a whimper as students generally filtered out of town whenever their last final was instead of having a single last hurrah night.
|5 days 17 hours ago||I agree we haven't had||
I agree we haven't had continuity, which is part of why this year has been so rough. In addtion to breaking in new guys, we're running things differently than we have. I just don't think we want to do that again and throw whatever comfort level and experience the young guys got from this year out the window and start all over again. The learning curve is steepest at the beginning.
|5 days 17 hours ago||I'm getting the PS4, here's||
I'm getting the PS4, here's why for me, in order of importance.
1. Pure power. More so than in previous generations, it's actually fairly straightforward to compare the two systems and the PS4 has a significant edge in graphics, both theoretically and in practice (lots of launch games are running at higher res and/or frame rate on PS4 than XBone).
2. My friends are getting the PS4, lots of them are XB360 converts too (like me).
3. Cost. I know the XBone has kinect included which is reflected in the price, but it's just not a feature I'm interested in, especially not for $100. Similarly, I'm just not interested in the entertainment connectivity features, I just want a gaming system.
4. Design. I really like the physical design of the PS4, it's slimmer and has the power supply internal to the device. I also like the fact the hard drive is user swappable.
|5 days 17 hours ago||I agree with most of what you||
I agree with most of what you said except for HW being equal. Many (most?) cross-platform launch games are running at higher resolutions and/or frame rates on the PS4. I agree, that's secondary to most people, but if you do care about how games look there is a pretty clear difference between the two.
|5 days 21 hours ago||Disagree. Taking a number||
Disagree. Taking a number from someone established so they can wear a legends number is one of the biggest things I don't like about the Legends Jersey program. Give it to the young guys as a motivational tool and let them try to live up to it.
|5 days 21 hours ago||OL||
I actually don't feel as scared about the OL next year. I know we've said it a few times already, but I really think 3 brand new starters on the interior this year will be the bottom for the OL situation. One upside to shuffling so many guys in and out is a lot of guys got playing experience, which is going to be invaluable. Miller, Kalis, Glasgow, Magnuson, Bosch, Bryant all got significant time. There's enough bodies there to get a starting line out of. With another year of S&C and working on technique, they could all be pretty serviceable, if not good. Depth is an issue, but some of the guys coming off of redshirts could probably fill that role, and Burzinyski actually looked pretty decent before injury, if he comes back for his 5th year. If Braden can lock down a tackle spot, it gets even better.
|5 days 21 hours ago||I think most people||
I think most people underestimate how disruptive a OC change would be. Whoever comes in will have a different system they will need to teach the players and position coaches below them. Even if they get another WCO disciple, there will still be a transition. Little things like terminology may seem trivial, but taken in aggregate with all the other little things that have to change, it becomes a big deal. Recruiting will almost certainly be impacted. With a defensive minded/CEO type head coach like Brady, the loss of continuity will be on par with a head coaching change, just on one side of the ball.
|6 days 23 hours ago||I dunno, Ohio will get||
I dunno, Ohio will get points, but if anyone matches up with them it's Sparty. Their ability to leave their corners on an island really frees up the rest of the defense to stop the run game. As much as it pains me to say, state has an elite defense this year and their offense is better than people give them credit for.

I think Sparty wins and I want them to. As annoying as the fans will be, I just can't stomach the idea of a school whose coach gets run off for blatant cheating coming back and having a shot at the NC a year later. Fuck Sparty, but fuck the Buckeyes more. The fact that state probably plays in the rose bowl either way just seals it for me.
|1 week 13 hours ago||My wife explaining pinterest||
My wife explaining pinterest to me was actually what made me realize my 2nd protip above. It's basically a way to collect all the pretty things in the world and "own" them in a way. She said it satisfies a lot of the same desires as shopping does. As soon as she said that, I got why women love it so much.
|1 week 17 hours ago||4 out of the 9 losses to Ohio||
4 out of the 9 losses to Ohio and 5 out of 5 of the losses to State can be attributed, at least in part, to messy coaching transitions. Wishing for a better product on the field dosn't automatcally and immediately make it so. If anything, constantly chasing short term fixes with coaching changes is what keeps programs in mediocrity (see ND after Holtz).

I missed any announcement too, but I always kinda assumed this was pretty temporary gig for him. On to saving lives and breaking hearts for Dr. Bubble Screen.
|1 week 18 hours ago||Predictability stems from lack of running game.||
If the OL, TE, FB, RBs etc can get us 2.5-3 yards consistently on whatever the base running play we go with (probably Power), it'll totally change the complexion of the offense. The system we've been trying to implement is completely contigent on that. We have enough weapons to take care of the rest. Another year of 0 and -2 yard runs though, I think we run into some of the same issues as this year with being one dimensional and predictable. I do think, even with continued issues with run blocking, we'll have more receiver weapons (yes, even with Gallon gone) and Gardner won't swing so dramatically from playing too loosely and too tightly with a bit more experience. As for Al, I think he'll have a little better feel for how to handle OL deficiencies should they crop up again. My hope is he'll be able to patch something together a little more quickly should the need arise.
|1 week 18 hours ago||I personally think penalties||
I personally think penalties for verbal stuff and lewd gestures is dumb. It's football, worse stuff gets said and gestured on the play ground. It's bad sportsmanship and we should condemn it but a suspension is way over the top. Save the penalties for potentially dangerous stuff or things that gain an unfair advantage.
|1 week 18 hours ago||For the guys||
Protip 1: If she has a pinterest account, it's basically like a wishlist.
Protip 2: Men tend to want stuff they can use for something, women often just want pretty things simply to possess them. You might be racking your brain to figure out what she needs, but what you really should be doing is figuring out what her aesthetic style is and buy something that fits that.

Love seeing some depth again. Nice to see the 2 deep populated everywhere except OT with quality options that have significant experience and/or are highly touted. We'll have lots of good athletes pushing from behind just to see the field in many positions.
|1 week 1 day ago||They are a minority,||
They are a minority, thankfully, but they exist and are vocal. Also, while much of the ire is directed at Borges, there are many here who say, if Hoke doesn't fire him, then Hoke himself needs to/will be fired. Maybe there haven't been serious challenges to Hoke's job now, but it's not hard to extrapolate what might happen if 2014 isn't all sunshine and magic.

Yes, coaches should be like Ronin. If they ever fail, they need to disembowel themselves in front of that fanbase.
