|44 min 42 sec ago||Sagar Lathia||
sounds like a Game of Thrones character. I did a quick google image search and discovered that Sagar may or may not be white or Indian, male or female, or a fancy sports car. This image of Sagar Lathia is the one that will stick with me:
Nope, I was wrong. It's this image:

that MGoBlog's getting so many hits this week, Brian's going to be able to afford a merry Christmas, and maybe even move out of the basement.
|58 min 59 sec ago||Only one question||
Why is Hunter Lochmann the hero of the story? Isn't he the Chief Marketing Officer? i.e., Brandon's Mini-Me?
|2 hours 2 min ago||I'm the kind of guy||
who writes a weekly diary about boxscores. Been doing it for four years. Go read them and see if I'm the kind of guy who just looks for anything bad to say. I defended Borges long after it was no longer popular to do so. Nuss indirectly blamed the scout team for not showing the offense the right looks. Go ahead, Nuss with your ~million dollar contract and blame a bunch of freshmen and walkons for your failure as a coordinator to get our team into the endzone.
|4 hours 1 min ago||Scout team,||
meet bus. He's blaming the scout team for the offense's poor play. I think I've heard it all now.
|4 hours 15 min ago||I'm guessing||
that Gardner does have a boo-boo and it hasn't healed as quickly as they were hoping, thus delaying the announcement of the starter.
|4 hours 20 min ago||Thanks for your very helpful input!!||
Sounds to me like Elaine Benis wrote that one response, EXCLAMATION POINT!
|4 hours 28 min ago||context||
yeah, the context is so important. I was ready to downvote you for tweedle-balls, but that seems like an appropriate response to numbnuts.

about RichRod. Constant change guarantees continued mediocrity.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Well,||
I bet he starts with, "Well," and follows that with, "ah," and finishes up with a "you know."
|1 day 8 hours ago||Love that Demond||
It was really cool when he won the Heiman trophy.
|1 day 8 hours ago||Stay the course?||
Obviously you fix the things you can fix (punt team), but last year after game four was when they pulled Miller and started futzing around with the o-line. Just give these guys some time together to develop as a unit. They did pass to 10 different guys on Saturday, but they were almost all short throws. I'd mix in some deeper balls and let those taller WRs try to make plays. A long INT isn't much worse than a punt, and maybe quite a bit better than a punt considering our 18.2 net punting average on Saturday.
Stress ball security. Whoever makes a mistake sits for a series, even if it's the QB.
Scrap the legends jersey patches so that "The Team, The Team, The Team" actually means something and isn't just words.
If they switch to Morris, it's an indication that they are giving up on this season and starting to prepare for next season. The problem with that is, Hoke won't be here next year if Morris is the QB in a developmental mode and we end up 5-7. He'll only do that if he gets an ironclad guarantee from Brandon that he's coming back. Is Brandon that much of a meddler? Yeah, I think so.
|1 day 8 hours ago||Yards per play||
Considering that our offense is playing at a glacial pace, I think yards per play is the better metric to judge the defense by. Looking at that statistic, we are 10th nationally, which is still pretty darn good.

Brady's going to have a lot of time to play euchre.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Is that guy a Vampire?||
Maybe I've been watching too much True Blood on HBO, but he appears to be crying tears of blood out of his left eye, which is a trait I now associate with Vampires. If anyone has been maced before, or has experience with macing situations, can you tell me if that is normal?
|2 days 9 hours ago||The counter||
I think the guy responsible for counting is the player between the snapper and the punter. You want the punter thinking about punting, not counting players. Looking back at the play, it seems like the counter is the guy who is missing. They had 7 men on the line, two flex tight ends if you will, the punter, and empty space.
From the endzone view of the play, you can see the two gunners coming down the field, then 20 yards of open space, then 3 more guys, then another 20 yards of open space. So the alleys were not really alleys, they were wide open expanses of space, screaming run into me, much like the state of Utah.
|2 days 9 hours ago||The title||
refers to the fact that for the non-ESPN3 savvy audience, the game effectively ended with 7:34 (or thereabouts) still left on the clock. The title is not complete because the game was not complete, for me at least.
I don't think you are insane, but you may have a brain abnormality.

If I recall correctly, that's a photo of Saddam Hussein's PR guy who kept claiming that they had everything under control while our tanks were entering Baghdad.
|4 days 23 hours ago||when did his posts||
stop? Sorry. Bad pun is bad.
|4 days 23 hours ago||Hoke||
I saw an ad today for a maize and blue T-shirt with "FIRE HOKE" on it. If you see anyone wearing one on Saturday, you have my permission to call them an asshole to their face.
|4 days 23 hours ago||well,||
alcohol mixed with crowd psychology leads to real stupidity sometimes.
|5 days 3 hours ago||Pace||
The only good thing about the slow pace is that it reduces Brian's UFR workload by about 25%, saving him from a lifetime of crippling carpal tunnel.

He actually needs to eliminate one to get dow to a pair.
|5 days 8 hours ago||Worry about Michael Thomas||
Do I have to start referring to my brother as "Michael Thomas (NTMT.)"
|6 days 6 hours ago||The last person||
I recall being so upset about the ineligible man downfield thing was Chris Spielman.
|6 days 9 hours ago||26-0 vs Temple||
Yeah, I know we regularly beat up the MAC, but Penn State's whole schedule was MAC-like until they joined the B1G. Now it's schedule is MAC Plus. (That's my new name for the Big Ten.)
|6 days 9 hours ago||The enemy of my enemy||
is still my enemy, and I enjoy when they take shots at each other. Thanks for adding that perspective to the Dantonio thing.
|1 week 9 hours ago||Transcript error||
I noticed the transcript was missing the follow-on to the question right before the jump. It went like this:
Doug, do you think your offense is still saying "Ga-ga, goo-goo," or have they progressed to actual words, like, "ma-ma, da-da."
"Your strange baby metaphors startle and confuse me. I'm just a simple, unfrozen caveman co-ordinator."
Yeah, the question about Funchess was awful, but that baby analogy stuff was crazy.
