Oh, certainly, coaches can be and often are wrong. I'm only saying that some random poster that thinks he knows better than Hoke who to put on the field is almost unquestionably wrong.

This man gets it.
|11 hours 5 min ago||A couple things: I think||
A couple things: I think you're an idiot if you really put much stock into who Hoke says is the starter right now. It's pretty clear that who he says is starting changes almost weekly and does not mean much.
Second, you are not at the practices. Hoke is. I'll defer to the guy who sees all of the team practices and is paid millions of dollars to do it.
|11 hours 33 min ago||I really don't think any||
I really don't think any stock should be put into who Hoke says is the starter. He is just giving reporters a line of crap, and has been all offseason. At any rate, the DT is one of the most heavily rotated positions on the field, so who is the starter there means a lot less than any other position anyway.

Screw it, with a decent OL Michigan is the best team in the league, bar none. We have a much better QB and better skill players than MSU, and our defense looks to match or surpass them this year, especially with all they lost on that side of the ball.
Edit: yes, I know this post is OT, but I'm responding to the OP's comment that Michigan would have a great chance of being the 2nd best team in the conference with a decent OL. Carry on.

So a school from Pennsylvania is playing a school from Florida and the game, which is being played in Ireland, is in jeopardy because there is a volcano that might erupt in Iceland.

Don't sleep on Navy or Cincy. OSU has had quite a few early season near-losses over the years, one of which against Navy, if I'm not mistaken. Cincy is not great, but good enought to beat them if they catch them sleeping.
This is probably the OSU team with by far the most question marks I can remember in a long time (maybe excepting 2011). It'll be interesting to see how they handle it. I don't necessarily think they will lose more than 2 or 3 games, but they are much more vulnerable than in years past.

"I want appropriate punishments, be they in the program or legally, administered."
I think we can all agree on that. Missing spring practice is not really punishment. Dantionio has had a history of light or non-existent punishments (remember Chris "out of jail Thursday, playing Saturday" Rucker?). That is my point.
|2 days 9 hours ago||I really don't understand||
I really don't understand your logic here. We can't be upset that his punishment is effectively nothing? When MSU fans like to claim that Hoke takes it easy on punishment?

Glenn Winston came back to haunt him.
And I'm still convinced that their blowout loss to Iowa in 2010 was karma for him reinstating Rucker without missing a game after a DUI.
|2 days 12 hours ago||No kidding. As someone who||
No kidding. As someone who was in school during the Rich Rod years and stayed until the end of every game, I am actually kind of mad that he was leaving on the last drive of a 1 point game.

Miller is 6-4, 299 lbs. That is not that small for an offensive lineman. He's actually bigger than Molk was, if memory serves.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Players DO improve as they||
Players DO improve as they get older. Hoke being positive and Miller potentially taking over Glasgow is a very good sign.

It is a home and home with a decent major conference team. This is exactly what we should be scheduling.
Did you want Alabama, or something?
|2 days 17 hours ago||I get what you're saying, but||
I get what you're saying, but won't opposing defenses also try to set the offense up for failure? They will not take it any easier on them than they did in the scrimmage.
Unless you're talking about tipping plays to the defense in order to put more pressure on the offensive guys.

We have a bunch of freshmen and sophomores starting on the line, is what's happening.
|3 days 16 hours ago||From 11w: "My theory: losing||
"My theory: losing Braxton (even though he is Heisman-worthy) will benefit all of the surrounding offensive tools that this team has available, and therefore make this team better because we aren't relying on one man to make all of the plays. Braxton could have set all sorts of records this year, but now JT & Co. will spread the wealth; and we might see a whole bunch of studs emerge from this injury. Here's to a speedy recovery for Braxton."
That's... Very wishful thinking.
|3 days 16 hours ago||They may have worked out the||
They may have worked out the kinks by then, but any way you slice it, this OSU team will not be the same one we would have faced otherwise. Even if their backup is pretty good, you don't just replace a Heisman frontrunner.
Not to mention, their whole team besides the defensive line is basically one big question mark. This could be a lean year for them, for OSU standards.

Well that was the 2007 defense, but I agree completely.
|3 days 21 hours ago||What grace does he have to||
What grace does he have to fall from? I honestly don't get ESPNs obsession with him. He was a good qb in college, but not spectacular in my opinion and not the type that would excel in the NFL.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Their defense still has major||
Their defense still has major issues/questions in the secondary, and lost their best LB by far. And they have a similar situation on the OL as us, and return virtually zero of their production on offense if Braxton is out.
I'm not saying that their offense will be a tire fire, but it could look pretty ugly for a while. I do think they will be OK, but I doubt very much that they make it to the conference championship game without Braxton.
|3 days 23 hours ago||You know what's funny?||
You know what's funny? Michigan has won a BCS bowl (or any bowl) more recently than OSU.
This has nothing to do with Braxton, but I just thought of it.

We get very little respect because that's what we deserve right now. I do think that those who haven't been paying close attention to Michigan probably will dismiss them again this year, though.
|4 days 17 hours ago||MSUs offensive line was||
MSUs offensive line was absolutely terrible until about week 6 or 7 last year. If we come out of the gate looking bad (which seems like a near certainty at this point), there is still a nonzero chance that the line improves drastically throughout the year, much like MSU did last year.
That, and we are basing our assumptions on very limited sample sizes. Hoke has mentioned that the line had been performing better than we saw in the scrimmage.

I'm hoping that the jerseys and pants they wear for the game match the maize on the helmet.
