Shock top belgian white.
It's... beer. I don't really have any description for it beyond that.
|4 days 6 hours ago||This is exactly correct.||
This is exactly correct. Right after the Canteen catch the ran to the line. This would lead you to believe they had 2 plays called which would be seemingly pretty good for the coaching staff. Miami called a timeout to keep them from running the play.
They also lined up to go for it on 4th and 1 after the timeout.
Unfortunately it seemed, based on the UM coaches reaction, that play clock was reset incorrectly. Now why someone wasn't watching to call a timeout if this is the case is beyond me but that isn't the first time they have botched clock management.

No one on the coaching staff is assigned to watching the clock?
I get that mistakes are made by the refs but in an important situation you need to have someone watching the play clock and ready to call for the timeout.
I know I know its Miami and they were leading but there is the only "practice how you play" mentality.

Defense was solid. Run D is really strong. Offense needs to help them out though.

My pops had a paddle when we were kids that we get 2 or 3 licks with when we acted up. When we were really bad he would cheat down to hit the thighs. Man that was the worst. My dad however understood the difference between giving us a spanking and beating us though which makes it a little more reasonable.

Was about to post the same thing. They are showing improvements. Maybe we don't think it's fast enough but we don't always get what we want. I think you need to at least let them get a couple big ten games under their belt to make a judgement on how far they have come from last year. Unfortunately that could mean bad things against MSU.

They were ran out of the gym in the 2nd half. It wasn't even close.
If anything it going down the way it did reinforces that the style of the Big Ten is old and crotchity and refusing to change.
The new up-tempo kid on the block reacted to what they were doing in the 2nd half and simply wrecked them.

USC Stanford at 3:30 is something at least.
But yeah the OSU game should have been at noon.
OSU-VaTech -> USC-Stan -> Start of MSU-Oregon -> UM-ND
Would have been a good run.

UM loses to ND then runs the table and wins the Big Ten
ND loses to USC and Stanford and goes 10-2
MSU loses close games to UM and OSU and goes 10-2
OSU loses to UM and goes 11-1
At that point UM is 12-1 with a Big Championship and has beat 2 teams that are likely in the top 15 on the road. Their only lose is an early season game against a team likely in the top 20 on the road. Not to mention how everyone else shakes out (whoever they play in the Big Ten championship game will likely be pretty high rated).
Unless all 4 other major conference champions are undefeated UM is in the playoff.

Except that MSU has no ultimate desire other than the Rose Bowl. Since winning the Big Ten is the direct path there (well it was before the playoff) they don't care about how strong the conference is.
Every hardcore MSU fan I have ever met has told me they would rather go to the Rose Bowl than the national championship game.
As much as I love the Rose Bowl and the Big Ten championship I have higher ultimate goals for Michigan than that and understand that having a strong conference makes it more likely that Michigan will get in.
|1 week 6 days ago||I would agree with||
I would agree with this.
However I marginally prefer "Yay Big Ten" compared to "LOL MSU"
I think the reason for this is if the Big Ten was suddenly smashing major teams from all the other conferences it might MIGHT stop the effin retard "SEC! SEC! SEC!" chants.

2012 is a year I really struggle with.
As much as I loved Denard I think if he starts 2012 as a RB with Gardner at QB we are a much better team.
We still get smoked by Bama but I think ND and Neb are wins. We likely lose to OSU since this was what we got anyway. But maybe win because Gardner and Denard have the full season at their respective positions.
Regardless in that case we are 10-2 and playing for the B1G title.
2013 was just a tire fire though.

I think I'm on board with this.
At the end of the day we might get beat by better teams. Unfortunately that might include the 3 rivals this year but I don't expect to see the Iowa or Penn State games of last year where we get a lead on a team that we are better than and then squander it away because we can't react.

Thanks for the update.
Shows what I know!
|2 weeks 2 days ago||From what I understand there||
From what I understand there is a meeting about it this week but outlook is they won't be back for the UM game. It's up to 5 players now as I understand it.
Then again its college football so anything can happen.
I think in general ND would rather lose games as opposed to vacating them so I give them credit for that.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||See and I don't understand||
See and I don't understand this either. 2012 wasn't a failure it wasn't even a bad year.
In the regular season we lost to 3 undefeated teams (2 of them by relatively close margins) and Nebraska when Denards arm exploded. When that season ended, especially with what Gardner did at the end of that year, I was super excited for what was being built. Even closing out with the loss to a very good SCAR team.
If Denard doesn't get hurt and we beat Neb we are playing for the BIG title and the season is a total success even if we lose to Wisky.
Last season however was a total debacle, as a great man once said. Yeah after 2013 you look back at 2012 and say maybe the offensive gameplan should have been better and maybe there should have been more improvement but realistically it was one year that got Borges the axe and was a reasonable reaction by Hoke/Brandon.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||So what you are saying is||
So what you are saying is "Cook just wins!"
Look the guy is a solid QB but Gardner is way more talented.
Last year when comparing the two Cook looked like a "winner" because his team had the best defense in the country. Gardner was never in a game where if the running game couldn't pick up 10 yards on 3 plays you just punted it away and waited for the defense to score a TD.
People seem to forget that in the 1st month of the season MSU's defense was not only steller but it scored more points than it allowed. Their defense LITERALLY won the game. LIke seriously they outscored their opponents.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Same to say he'll be one of||
Same to say he'll be one of the top receivers this year. I'm not convinced however that he'll even be the best receiver especially because this team wants to run the ball.
Heisman for a receiver only is basically a no way.

THE KNOWLEDGE has seen into the future to the point the english language has further devolved.
you're -> your
too = two -> to
their = they're -> there
At this time peek and peak have become interchangable.
THE KNOWLEDGE understands that his visions cannot be stop and they will become. yes yes.
Even THE KNOWLEDGE cannot avoid the future. As such he has accepted his fate.
