I am in the exact same boat, I never complain about the refs. Tonite is a different story. That was one of the worst refereed games I have ever watched.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||I've never understood why||
I've never understood why replay officials don't use different camera angles with the timestamp of each angle. You can nearly get a full 360 view of what's going on by freezing each camera angle at the same critical time. The video is captured digitally to fractions of a second.
I here the announcers always say "well, this camera angle has a good view for a second, but you lose view when you continue the footage. This other angle shows a little more." I scream at the TV to do a 2 or 3 or 4 screen freeze to show all angles at the same time!
This could be used with the same technology mentioned. Sync the tech in the football with the video footage, find the frame where it is conclusive the player is down, document the timestamp, sync the info, you have your perfect spot.
My FIL and I were discussing before the 'critical spot' how ironic it is that football spots with next to no regard to detail on every down except those that ended very close to the first down marker or touchdown. Why judge on milimeters for those critical spots, but use such a 'willy nilly' process for all the other downs?

I'd say my fandom has increased dramatically, but my emotional responses have decreased.
I love all things Michigan a lot more than I did when I was younger, but I haven't had the emotional rollercoaster I did when we would suffer big losses or big wins.

Over/Under on how many QBs we play? I could see Harbaugh throwing out Speight for the full first half + 1 series in the 2nd half (game is fully under control at this point), then O'Korn, Morris, Moores and Malzone to kneel down (holding out Peters as to not burn his redshirt).
***The over/under does include Morris (or any others) getting time at a different position other than QB

I'm going to guess it will be a very pertinent quote from Oscar Wilde, Kurt Vonnegut or Mark Twain.

There is a perfect opportunity for the B1G commissioner, Jim Delaney, to swing back and swing back hard. He should 'agree' with this proposal, but take it 2 steps further and request that all collegiate activities be performed only on class days as to not interfere with the true purpose of being a collegiate athlete. This would include playing football games on Saturdays because the weekends are there for the kids and that freedom shouldn't be taken away. This also includes New Years day games, any games played after the school semesters have completed, practices, etc. And the final part of the proposal would be to name it 'The Sankey Rule' so if for some odd reason it does pass, everyone will remember who it was that screwed it all up. Or if it doesn't pass, it will at least still have Sankey's name on it for the rest of history.
Then see how Sankey responds to the true 'intent' of his reasonings.

My buddy here in Nashville is a Miss St grad and pretty in touch with the Mississippi happenings. He's hearing that most of the violations are outside of football and nearly all of them happened before Hugh Freeze's start.
In my buddy's words: "The football ones are minor and/or involved past coaches. Probably going to get away with it. They don't specifically state that football was cited in that time. I'm telling you that they get away with it. I have many years of seeing them cheat."
I hope this is not the case, but figured I'd share some 'Insider Mississippi Knowledge' or whatever they call it in the Deep South.

At the very least it gives us a brief look into their perspective on what happened and what Jake is thinking. Sounds like he has the physical tools to be a solid player. Tough to turn that down if he wants in.

Being a father of 3 young kids and a 4th soon to be delivered, I don't even want to think of the pain the family is going through. No parent should have to experience such pain and loss. My heart is absolutely crushed.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those in a similar situation.

How soon before PJ Fleck is at a Power 5 Conference team? Personally, I'd love to see him take over Vanderbilt, but you can make an argument that WMU is a better job right now.
I'm stil having a hard time figuring out if WMU really is that much improved or if MSU is overhyped. Cook looked mediocre. Their defense was not very dominant. They did not look very confident, just frustrated all night.
First game caveats apply, I guess.

I was questioned publicly if I was a Michigan Football fan during the dark ages of Rich Rod and Hoke. I denied it 3 times before Harbaugh crowed.
