Wagner's still a work in progress overall, but man he's got crazy upside. He may be more skilled than McGary at this stage, although he doesn't have McGary's physique. In the long run, he could end up being the best pro player from this team. Hopefully for us that won't be TOO soon from now.
But Caris is still the man on this team, and I'm loving his increased assertiveness. He wanted that ball in his hands when Texas closed it to one point and he put us over the top. He's taken his game to a new level and it's fun to watch.

OK. But where is your cheesy pun about the Atlantis resort?
|23 hours 38 min ago||Our team outrebounded them||
Our team outrebounded them 38-24. The way we operate, our bigs often don't rack up huge rebounding totals. They box out the opposing team's big guy and then Walton or other guards swoop in and grab the defensive board.

Don't know why you're writing off Cam five games into his sophomore season. While his outside shot still isn't falling, the rest of his game seems improved. He pulled down eight boards tonight.

But are you ready to take a leap of faith on this team's chances?

While Charlotte isn't very good, they did play a somewhat competitive game (83-70) with Syracuse last night. So to completely blow the doors off them was nice to see.

I just assumed this was done by an American in the style of Taiwanese animation. Some of the stuff in here is pretty obscure.

Sadly, because of the Iron Curtain we never got to see the young Arvydas Sabonis play. He was said to be a megastar before the leg injuries. Even with no legs by the time he came here, he was still a quality player.

OK. And what do those numbers mean?

2009 and 2013 were bad. But those were exceptions, when we were in a tailspin and our fans sold off a lot of their tickets. Normally OSU fans are like 10-15% of the crowd, similar to MSU.

I don't think it will be that big of a deal. There were security checks after 9/11 and things still proceeded pretty smoothly.

They actually could have found some good material from our own fanbase after OSU choked. But this stuff is good enough.

MSU was mediocre for most of the time from c. 1970-2009. They've had a nice run over the last five years, and I think they'll be pretty good as long as Dantonio is there, but we don't know how much longer he'll coach.
PSU is on a stronger historical footing, but they seem to have made an uninspired hire in James Franklin. They actually lost to Maryland last year and nearly did this year as well. PSU won't stay mediocre forever, but it might be a few more years before they get it together.
Michigan and OSU should be strong for the forseeable future, but nothing's etched in stone. Even if you do lose to those two, you can still have a pretty good season. I don't think anyone's arguing that Maryland is a destination job, but a good coach might do decently there for a few years and then move on to a bigger program.

Historically, the Game has had lots of upsets. Only recently has it consistently held to form (unfortunately not in our favor) - though even then, the underdog has often given a good game.
|2 days 10 hours ago||The problem with these||
The problem with these comparisons is that it's our coach's first season and their coach's fourth. One would expect OSU's entire body of work to look better given that their offensive and defensive systems were well in place from the outset. For us the learning curve was steeper. Compare our passing offense now, for example, with what it was like in September.

How are these guys able to travel to every game? Are they actually gainfully employed?
|2 days 11 hours ago||All of Michigan, OSU, MSU and||
All of Michigan, OSU, MSU and PSU are not going to be good at the same time. We were recently down, PSU is still kind of down and MSU historically is not a powerhouse. With an elite coach Maryland can probably win a couple of those games.

I think you get the joke. But for some reason you feel a need to explain it to everyone else, despite everyone else also getting it.
|2 days 21 hours ago||One correction||
Bump Elliott's first season was 1959, not 1958. (You do have the correct score though.)
Interesting that we had a M00OS game in 1900.

Phenomenal moment. I remember a similar play in the '03 game (caught by Edwards) but it was called back for holding. The crowd was unbelievably loud when it happened.
I notice that Bo must have had stricter criteria for the stickers than Harbaugh does, as Jim doesn't have all that many considering he was an all-Big Ten QB in the last game of the season.
