|3 days 3 hours ago||good that he got his degree||
Hope he winds up somewhere where he can start on the field and get a good graduate degree off of it.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||more like MSU last year||
Everything seems ok, and then...
|5 weeks 3 days ago||why couldn't AT have just taken a knee...||
after he crossed the first down line?
And why couldn't we move the ball at all in the second half against the Boilers after going right through them every time in the first half?
|5 weeks 3 days ago||but they won all 3 of those||
OU's offense is legit, and OSU went into their house and beat them by 3 TDs. But as we've seen from OSU's last few weeks, hanging 45 on OU is like hanging 30 on an average B1G defense.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||let's hope so||
but last year we thought we'd have our Indiana issues taken care of by OSU, and we didn't.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||it wasn't a fake comeback||
With about 2:30 left it was 30-17 and MSU had a first down at our 18 and 2 time outs. At that point they were absolutely still in the game. Their last TD was cosmetic, but it was still disappointing to see our starting defense give it up.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||he just has a short memory||
The OSU game last season wasn't that long ago.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||more like 30% of the game||
The first 7 minutes, and the last 11. This was still our worst performance of the year by a wide margin.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||2nd half||
We didn't really start to go bad until after our FG. From that point we had 1 first down and 3 punts. MSU had 4 long drives, 2 for TDs, 1 for a missed FG, and 1 where they turned it over on downs. Over that period, they outgained us 227-41.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||MSU ran 70 plays||
Doesn't sound like much, but it's a lot more than our first string is used to seeing.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||what happened to Lewis in the second half?||
He had a great first half. Then in the second he was nowhere near the play on the arm-punt that extended MSU's drive to make it 30-17, then he got a PI call and got lost on the one throw to the end zone.
The defense on the whole was horrific today except in short yardage situations.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||this||
Their defense was bad last year, and they lost all of their better players including DeForest Buckner. They don't have the talent and experience to be good this year in any case.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||rec'd for Austria-Hungary||
Switch the fear ratings of Maryland and Illinois, though. Maryland has played ok this year. Illinois has been terrible.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Hurst won't kill the center||
He'll just run right past him and kill the guy with the ball.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||pretty much||
Wisconsin's O is meh but their D is legit, and Sparty's O isn't nearly as good as ND's leaky D made it look.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||I don't see anyone blowing LSU out||
Their defense is too good. They could slip past Bama with a few breaks.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||emergency||
They might have decided that they were only going to play him if someone got hurt and the game was still in doubt.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||even boring safeties||
struggle to single cover WRs deep. I don't know how much I blame Hill for what happened there.
Up to that point the defense seemed to have adjusted, as we had stuffed Colorado on 4 straight possessions.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||no||
The Fargodome is too small for an FBS team, and the fan/alumni base does not have the money to fund a big new stadium.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||sweet||
With the Hanson brothers rotating at tailback, there's no way we can lose.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||not only that||
They lost their one difference maker (DeForest Buckner) and had to replace all their starting LBs. Of course their 2015 LB starters weren't great, but they were ahead of the new starters on the 2015 depth chart.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||quibble||
Tying for second on Known Friends should be worth 1.5 points, not 1. Third place is worth 1, and tying for second should be better than finishing third. (I suppose if two guys tie for second no one should get third.)
|13 weeks 6 days ago||yep||
He looks smaller than his listed weight of 200, but he has game. He didn't look like a true freshman going up against college dudes for the first time.
|14 weeks 6 hours ago||St. Vincent||
Their population is smaller than Ann Arbor's. Not the county, just Ann Arbor. They aren't rich like Iceland either.
|14 weeks 6 hours ago||yeah||
When I read that I thought "I hope he's right about that one". Even if we're just talking about the season average as opposed to the end of the season, it's a bit optimistic to assume that an unproven player who's been riding the bench will be about as good as an above-average starter.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||heh||
More like "chuck it up in Braylon's general vicinity". That year, the definition of a well-thrown ball was one where you could say "Braylon can work with that".
|17 weeks 7 hours ago||Sundhage was the US coach for||
Sundhage was the US coach for only one World Cup, in 2011. The US didn't win.
|17 weeks 7 hours ago||Sweden didn't outplay the US||
The US had more possession, more shots, and more shots on goal. A tie game was a fair result. A shootout is just a coin flip.
The US couldn't beat Sweden last year in the World Cup either. This team always wins either the World Cup or the Olympics, but not both.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||yeah||
We have a bunch of DL/LB types wearing inappropriate numbers like 1, 2, and 3 when no one is wearing 60, 61, 62, 64, 66, 69, 94, 95, or 97.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||everything is cool||
when you're part of THE TEAM, THE TEAM, THE TEAM, THE TEAM!
