Dantonio was a successful DC at OSU before he became a head coach. I doubt anyone's that worried about his defensive bona fides, more that he's on the older side and the trend has been going against that.

Papago Brewing in Scottsdale. Good beer, also a bunch of guest taps, and good pizza.

Guess they'll have to go after Spencer Hall too since he used to (maybe still does?) sell those EDSBS shirts with a burning couch on it.

Rules numbered 1-100: Don't be a dick.

Much as it would have been funny to ruin OSU's national title hopes, I'm a Michigan fan who roots for Michigan. National championship all the way and it isn't even a contest. A football win makes a difference in which third tier bowl the team goes to, yippee.

If Jimmy Graham can be a TE for fantasy football, Devin Funchess can be a TE for the purpose of these awards.

Well, UMAD? seems to be what the UMAD's reaction is to the kvetching.

They need to look into trading Deng ASAP. Impending free agent and very good player, someone will give up some useful stuff for him. And then tank as much as possible, hopefully get into the lottery.

Make it so.

Harlan County... I'm just imagining a team full of Crowders and Givens and Bennetts and Crowes and maybe a few Limehouses.

Owen & Engine has the best burger.
Kuma's has a really good "a bunch of stuff piled on meat". There's a reason pretty much no one orders a plain burger at Kuma's -- the basic patty is pretty average.

Prairie Moon is a good beer bar in Evanston. Theres also World of Beer which is a little more sports bar-y but I think pricier. Or screw tailgating and drinking and go have a burger and shake at Edzos.

And known in Chicago for having been a dipshit whose mouth wrote a check his ass couldn't cash when he was at a bar near US Cellular Field and got his ass beat. And tried to claim it was some gangbangers or something just randomly attacking him rather than what actually happened.

That was Saban's agent doing his job. He can extract more money out of Bama with the Texas threat.

I wouldn't be surprised if they designate Penn State and the homecoming game as "premium"

And they have big receivers and a pass catching tight end and hey wait a minute that's pretty much what Michigan is recruiting these days.
The Bears, after years of being a terrible offense, are 3rd in the NFL in scoring. Maybe Hoke and Borges should pay Trestman a visit this offseason and get a copy of that playbook.

Is the show going to be called EEEEEE BARWIS ?

I'd like to see a comparison of technique on the running back pass blocking. I feel like Fitz (and Green on the rare times he's in there on a pass) just sort of wait for the guy, which by physics results in them getting blasted back or chucked out of the way. Vincent Smith I think attacked the block more often rather than just waiting to be run into, and his blocking actually worked. And of course Vincent Smith had good pad level.

Levert making the leap raises the ceiling of this team in so many ways. It lets Spike do what he really does best, takes pressure off of Walton, and allows an utterly ludicrous lineup of length if they want with Caris, Stauskas, Irvin GR3 and Mitch. Holy crap, is this looking like yet another "Beilein is a genius talent scout" point. At this point rather than worrying that they missed some top targets for 2014 instead I can't wait to see what they do with Chatman and DJ.

Eh, Metrics is a fine player, he had 13 and 9 in his first game for Maryland (against UConn, not a guarantee game opponents). Just didn't like it at Michigan, it happens. In the end it's probably better for all parties concerned.

I think the only way the current playcalling would actually work is if we had Tecmo Bowl Bo Jackson starting at RB as well as QB Eagles in our offense.

That Gregory guy really was everywhere.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Most good offenses can and do||
Most good offenses can and do run quite a few things out of the same formation so the defense might know "ok, it's probably one of these 8 plays" but that's not terribly helpful because if you guess one of those plays and you're wrong you probably get roasted.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Walton's actually a fine||
Walton's actually a fine scorer, but he's a distributor first and given the weapons on the team I think he'll rack up the assists first. He's got a good outside shot and he can play D, and with the other guys on the squad who can also do some ballhandling (Nik, GR3, Zak) to a lot of ballhandling (Spike and Caris) he won't have the huge pressure to be the lone ballhandler. I think the biggest issue in the nonconference season, and it might stretch into the conference season, is that there isn't an "alpha" scorer type right now. Last year obviously there was Trey, and THJr had that attitude too. I don't know who is going to do that this year. Thankfully, there's a fair bit of time, and there's enough OOC tests that I think it will be more clear by the time the B1G schedule rolls around.

I would love to make it but am busy with a wedding (rehearsal dinner at the same time that night).
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I think the bigger issue is||
I think the bigger issue is his back. Even if he has zero post moves (which I don't believe -- the bigger issue is whether he's developed a shot out to 15 feet and can make free throws so that he's playable in crunch time) he'll still be one of the better bigs in the country because of being a monster on the boards, an excellent passer (particularly for a big), generates steals that most bigs don't, and motor motor motor. He'll still get plenty of put-backs even with Burke gone because that's what high-motor rebound machines do.
But he isn't any of that if he's sitting on the bench in street clothes, and a back problem can sap your explosiveness and really put a damper on your motor if he comes back but isn't 100%. They're notoriously wonky, you think you're fine but you're not and then one false move and it's a setback.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||You're forgetting to look||
You're forgetting to look down at the protection minuses in addition to the regular chart, which largely tracks running plays. And given the low number of running plays Michigan ran, the interior line's numbers on the day on the chart are wretched.

Soldier Field even after the "remodel" isn't very good, but prior to the remodel it was so bad they would set up portapotties in the concourses because the bathrooms were so woefully inadequate.
