|7 weeks 2 days ago||last 7 1/2 minutes of the game from Johnson's perspective||
We are lucky Johnson wasn't thrown out for the nut punch. Here is a breakdown of the last 7 1/2 minutes of the game from Johnson's perspective.
I've omitted Johnson's three with 45 seconds left, and the 2 free throws he did hit. Just focusing on the negatives which greatly outweigh the positives.
2:25 Johnson attempts a pass to Withey that is deflected by GRIII who takes it in for a dunk
2:13 Johnson get the ball in the back court, and decides to keep it there for the next 12 seconds
14.0 Johnson lets burke blow right past him for the easy layup - down 3.
12.6 Johnson misses the front end of a 1 and 1
4.1 Johnson collapses on top of McGary on the screen, and Burke drains "the Trey" as Jonson get up to his feet.
4:02 Johnson can't get around another McGary screen and Burkes drains another three
2:59 Johnson pulls up for a tough 3 with Burke guarding him tightly with 16 on the shot clock and misses it
2:20 McGary sets ANOTHER screen on Johnson to free up Burke - Johnson no likey the screen, and tries to tackle McGary. This displeases McGary and turns him into Tim Duncan - he drains a turnaround jumper to give us the lead again
1:44 Johnson pulls up for a jumper and bricks (michigan rebounds)
1:02 Johnson switches to McGary, burkes throws up a wild shot, and McGary boards and puts back for two. Johnson looks confused while watching this happen.
55.0 Immediately after Kerr says "You've got to get a good posession here" Johnson turns it over to Robinson, who drains both of his free throws (we're up 5)
0.0 Johnson takes a terrible angle, drives way too wide to get to the basket, and his pass out to Tharpe is WAY wide, which gives Levert time to close and forces him to rush his shot.
End of Game - Great closeup of Johnson shattered, bending over with his "HATE" tattoo clearly visible.

The Trey, but specifically Bartelstein coming into the frame from the future.

I performed a detailed statistical analysis of Stauskas' season, and after reviewing the numbers, came to the conclusion that yesterday was awesome.

I thought he looked like a freshman....Was happy it was him and not someone we are going to need to play this year...

Burke slapping the court in front of the msu bench after we went up ten was fucking classic.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||You think?||
You think Ohio fans respect us? Admittedly, I've never been to the shoe, but the stories that i've heard don't seem like the type of thing born out of respect. Same goes for interactions in Ann Arbor....

that thinks that this is the worst thread ever.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||I truly don't understand Brian's obsession with Norfleet||
They guy seems to have horrible instincts on kick returns, routinely brings balls out of the endzone that he should not, and hasn't even sniffed snaps at RB this past fall.
Agreed that it reflects very poorly on the safefy situation, but that is it. You definitely can't write off a guy that has only been on the team for a few months, but you can't annoint him as the next great thing either. I always though that he was kidding, but the lenght of this post leads me to believe otherwise.

I think that he should have plastic surgery to replace his current weak jaw with this one. Expanding it by 100% (as was done here) makes it look like the size of a normal mans jaw.

Try to imbibe it.

Hard to win that way. Amazingly we won one.

Guys, I crunched some numbers using a highly advanced algorithm, and I think that I've got this pegged.
Denard will be 5/14 for 468 Yards, 7 TDs (amazingly) and 6 INTs
9 carries for 45 yards and 1 TD

Has he gotten into an NFL game?

At first, I thought this meant making 16 a Legends jersey, and giving it (with denards name on it) to someone next year. I still thought that was a bad thread.

Beyer is on crutches in background during the post game speech.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, but not until well after the fact||
I walked like a Zombie to a class after the planes had hit (but before the towers had collapsed) seeing people with happy faces and thinking to myself "You don't know what just occured, or how fucked up things are going to get in the world from here on out..." They are my last memories of the world or life before 9/11, because most of the people that I saw had no idea that it had happened..
I still don't know why I went to class, I guess I was just on autopilot / in disbelief as to what had just occured.

How did you feel about our defense 2 games in last year?

I read this and thought, "wow, this is a very unbiased piece by Brian"....then realized he didn't write it....
Funny how a game like this can bring back the emotions of the Rodriguez era.

1. He was being interviewed after a game, and was patiently answering all of the questions the reporter had for him. As the interview was wrapping up (midfield) the reporter said to him, OK, why don't you go celebrate with your teammantes, (or something to that effect) and Denard's eyes just lit up, like it was the greatest idea he had ever heard. He said, OK, then just sprinted off ot be with his teammates.
2. His long TD run against Ohio - Seeing the intensity and knowing how much the game meant to him, winning it for himself and for his seniors.
|38 weeks 6 days ago||Google site search||
I love this site, and feel like a jerk for complaining about anything on it, but the search functionality is pretty awful. I've often wanted to find old posts on things and really struggled.
Also, because people get so worked up over people reposting things (which I tend to think is pretty lame), some improvement to the search would be much appreciated.

Coming in from NYC to be there for his last game. Without question my favorite athlete of all time.

Denard is definitely my favorite player of all time in any sport on any team.

If there has ever been a recruit that I am not afraid of losing it is Shane Morris.

This comment / opinion falls squarely under the category of Politics, and this blog isn't the place for it.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||My guess||
Would be that he moved to TE because they thought his ceiling might be higher there, turns out it isn't, so they are just letting him play his natural position. I think that this is more an indication of his lack of development than of the development of other players.

I worked as a valet parker with Victor Hobsonin in college, and he hit a construction barrier and just parked the car as if nothing was happened, walked back and sat down. Being too terrified / awestruck to actually ask him about it, I buffed as much of the scratch out of the car as I could (using my collared shirt) and also just proceeded as if nothing had happend.
