|1 day 15 hours ago||sure they could||
They gave up 19 to Ball State. I'd expect us to score 13-20 but 24 would hardly be shocking.
|1 week 12 hours ago||PSU and Minn probably won't be that tough||
They'll be lucky to score if our defense plays the way it's been playing. PSU's offensive line was destroyed by Temple, and Minnesota has a wet noodle attack.
MSU will be tough. Their OL is strong enough that we won't be able to just crush them at the line of scrimmage like we did to Ore St, UNLV, and BYU.
|1 week 1 day ago||that was a DO||
Hit Butt in stride well downfield.

I think the offense struggles again and sets BYU up with turnovers at our end once or twice. The defense gives up 2 or 3 bombs and not much else.
|1 week 5 days ago||no||
I thought the 4 point line quoted yesterday was about right. At 5.5, BYU looks like good value.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||based on what?||
UCLA didn't need to run up a ridiculous score on UNLV, they did more than enough to win easily. They pummeled the team that almost beat ND. The one question about them going into the season was the QB, and he's been fine. Meanwhile, Taysom Hill is out for the season.

UNLV is not good, especially without their QB.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I might have been in that room with you||
I walked to campus and on the way to the elevator in Lorch I heard someone mention a plane hitting the WTC. I went up to the computer lab and all the news sites were down, so a friend and I went over to the B-school lounge to watch the news on the tv up in the corner.

Our D should be able to shut down a one-dimensional offense.

His game has a lot of room for improvement. I'd hate to see him spend practice time on offense that he should be working on playing DB. Maybe in two years if he's hit the flat part of the learning curve on defense he could start working with the offense a bit.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Peppers||
He looks like a good freshman, not a senior. Making a lot of plays but also more errors than you'd expect a veteran to make. He's a bit like OSU's Ryan Shazier early in his career, or a better and more physically gifted version of Jonas Mouton.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Peppers||
He still has a lot to learn in coverage, but he's already a force when he plays downhill.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||resignation||
This game was pretty much interchangeable with any of about a dozen from the last two years, especially Utah last year. The defense is more or less ok, and the offense is terrible. Again.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||ugh||
The offense still stinks, although it isn't quite as toothless as it was last year. If Rudock can just play 90% as well as he did last year, we should at least get back to a bowl. But today was unforgivable.
Defense isn't bad. Lewis is excellent. Peppers has a long way to go, but he should be a consistent force before too long.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||this was a dead replay of last year's game||
So far, this team is a clone of last year's team. Adequate defense, absolutely no positives on offense.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||5th year senior?||
Rudock looks like a true freshman. Did he completely forget how to play the game over the summer?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||this may be the worst broadcast I've ever seen||
|4 weeks 3 days ago||try 4 years||
Under RR we had an inept defense and a serviceable but overworked offense.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||thoughts||
The run defense is solid.
The pass defense isn't bad. There haven't been any egregious breakdowns, although Peppers has looked like a freshman in coverage. Lewis looks good.
The run offense does not exist.
The pass offense has been hot garbage. Rudock had two horrible interceptions and two horrible overthrows on gift-wrapped touchdowns. I trust that he just played the worst half he'll play all season.
The special teams are adequate.

fan: "Ugh, Moeller, you're so conservative!"
Elvis floats one up for Desmond, who beats two Irish DBs and goes horizontal to pull it in, icing the game.
me: "Whadja think of that call?"

Hope I'm wrong.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||agree but...||
I would also make BYU a tossup. They were good last year until Taysom Hill got hurt, and he's back along with most of their other contributors.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||or maybe||
beating USC and losing to Washington St? That's what Harbaugh's first Stanford team did.

Here is the subjective % chance I give M to win each game:
Ore St 90
|5 weeks 2 days ago||that isn't very M of you||
Desmond Howard, #21.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||all of this is spot on||
Navarre is my all time favorite M player. He took all the unwarranted abuse, never complained, just kept his head down and kept working, and eventually got results.

Word is he hasn't been himself since his uncle Oberyn got killed.
