i'll be damned if i root for sparty...go badgers all the way
|4 years 22 weeks ago||i will wait||
i will wait until i hear it directly from d-mo
|4 years 29 weeks ago||personally i'd take this season||
personally i'd take this season, if only because the future seems a lot brighter for a much longer time with this team than the 08-09 team.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||chicago||
anyone in chicago and going to the bars for the game?
|4 years 45 weeks ago||the play i was referring to||
the play i was referring to specially was on the first play of a drive, both wisconsin safeties shifted down into the box
i do notice that the coaches are changing up the plays from the sideline, but on a standard first and ten play like that, denard needs to look up and realize both safeties are in the box against a called read option and send the slot on a seam route
|4 years 45 weeks ago||one more area of improvement/development||
with two years left of development for denard, one thing i do want to see going forward is improvement in his ability to read and adjust according to defenses
i can't recall seeing denard calling many (if any) audibles at the line of scrimmage
on some of the plays against wisconsin, they were read options; however, wisconsin was in a flat cover zero. what i hope to happen with a junior or senior denard is him recognizing the coverage and audible into a PA seam route

hahaha, by far my favorite part of this article is the lone user comment:
|5 years 3 days ago||martin will stay||
with the impending lockout and also uncapped season, i highly doubt martin will leave for the nfl, i'll still knock on wood just in case though *knock* *knock*
|5 years 3 days ago||the indiana touchdown||
the indiana touchdown at the end of the half is listed as EOH, the indiana points per possession should be 2.91666
the total points per possession would go up to 2.11666
|5 years 1 week ago||just to be safe||
i would remove that second scanned picture of the ticket w/ the barcode showing and repost the picture w/ the barcode part covered
it's never a good idea to post ticket pictures w/ the barcode showing
|5 years 2 weeks ago||does someone have statistics for tate from last year?||
because if memory serves me correctly, i believe tate had an exponentially better passer rating while scrambling on the run than standing in the pocket
|5 years 2 weeks ago||i could be completely wrong||
but i think lane kiffin's trying all the two point conversion just for practice. all those conversion attempts have come against hawaii and minnesota (perceived bad teams) and frankly why not? it's always good to have in-game experience for situational plays and if they ever need to use it in a key game, they would have the added advantage of experiencing it plenty of times in actual games
|5 years 2 weeks ago||regarding the defense, i agree in most cases||
that good/bad defense should not affect the 4th down strategy; however, we also have to take into account our defensive play-calling strategy.
With our "bend-don't-break" defense, we are expecting opposing offenses to move up and down the field and on with the caveat that we can hold them to field goals once they get in the red-zone. This being the case, it makes it irrelevant where offenses start on the field against us, they will always be expected to move up and down the field.
With all factors considered; i believe this further promotes the theory that we should be in four down territory starting from just outside of the opposing team's field goal range (~own 30 yard line) to our guaranteed field goal range (~opp 15 yard line)
|5 years 3 weeks ago||umass FBS record the last few years||
Seriously, why are we playing these guys? there's literally NOTHING to be gained...
|5 years 3 weeks ago||neutral zone||
essentially ineligible receivers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eligible_receiver) cannot advance beyond the neutral zone on passing plays otherwise a flag can be throw for ineligible receiver downfield; however, i rarely ever see this being called in college
|5 years 3 weeks ago||scary as it sounds||
it's moreso due to the fact that he is still developing as a QB
usually the hardest thing for new QBs to learn is working through the progressions. typically rookie QBs tend to find a "favorite" receiver and lock onto that receiver. If you watch the last couple games carefully, you do notice that dilithium has a tendency to lock onto his primary receiver and thus giving away the play (case in point, the roundtree throw which almost got him killed in the uconn game)
this is something that can be fixed with repetition, timing and trusting your receivers to be in the right places (imagine how good he'll be when he get's this down)
i hope it is sooner rather than later because good secondaries are going to take advantage of this and jump his routes
|5 years 3 weeks ago||sure||
|5 years 4 weeks ago||screen resolution||
what's your screen resolution? i have it in 1280x1024, 1280x800 and 1024x768
|5 years 4 weeks ago||xavier?||
did anyone realize denard's middle name is xavier? no joke! true x-factor baby!!!
check the "personal" section
|5 years 4 weeks ago||denard's stats||
should have been even higher, the wideouts played great but way too many drops...i'm not going to harp on roundtree too much but he did drop a catchable touchdown pass
|5 years 4 weeks ago||uh sir...sir...||
i'm sorry to inform u but u've just been...um...DENARDEDDDDD!!!!!
|5 years 5 weeks ago||what about this scenario from 2006||
with the divisions as projected, what about a repeat of 2006? we lose to osu in the game but then play them again in the title game the week after and eek out a win...with the votes the way they were, there would have been a solid chance that there would have been another rematch in the national title game
i have no problems with playing osu twice in a season but three times? that's just a little too much
|5 years 12 weeks ago||it was a dive||
iniesta definitely dived to exaggerate the foul but he had his man beat with a clear path on goal and heitinga reached out and grabbed his shoulder...it may be a soft yellow but 50-50 it does get called a yellow
just look at heitinga's reaction afterwards, he didn't even try pleading his case, he just turned around and walked off because he knew he committed the foul
|5 years 15 weeks ago||call me crazy||
call me crazy but what about starting torres in holden's spot? i feel like he could thrive here against ghana's packed midfield, and his crosses could do wonders against ghana's short back line
|5 years 41 weeks ago||simple||
just make a video of you burning it all and post it on youtube, i rather make money that way than selling useless garbage on ebay
|5 years 50 weeks ago||This wasn't a poem||
This wasn't a poem but i remember once i went back for a homecoming game two years after i graduated and while i was walking by the bongo guy on my way to the game, i suddenly hear him go, "hey! didn't you graduate two years ago?". Scary part is i don't think i've ever talked to the bongo guy...
