O'Korn looked better on the field as a freshman than O'Connor ever has. Michigan's QB will also have great targets to throw to; MSU's throwing to a lot of questions. I like their running back a lot, but last time MSU had dicey QB, new receivers, and a great RB (Le'Veon Bell), their offense was bad and they went 7-6. Corley probably turns out to be a good receiver, but true freshmen receivers rarely are really good right away.
I kinda wonder if they don't get off to a good start and O'Connor isn't all that good if their redshirt freshman, or even de Weaver, might get a look with an eye toward next year, as this is O'Connor's last year. Terry is dollar store Denard basically (dual threat, but worse at throwing and not ludicrously good at running like Denard), he's not their solution, unless they want to run an offense from 100 years ago.

I remember being there watching him in his first start in 2001. He spent all day getting crushed by our defense, made some dumb freshman mistakes, but we came away with the thought that he'd probably be very good given his arm and his toughness. Not that we knew he'd be as good as he turned out, but you could tell right away he was different. Very few guys could take the pounding he did that day and still be playing (I think he missed a series, but came back) and standing in there to the end, still trying to make plays.

Running back is also the position at which a true freshman is most likely to be able to contribute. Doesn't require blocking or fighting the blocks of large humans like the line positions do and to some extent linebacker, doesn't have nearly the volume of possible patterns/responsibilities that a receiver or DB does, and of course, QB is quite difficult.

Oh, I'm sure it was North talking normally. That's what a stereotypically meatball sports fan, high school dropout, from Chicago sounds like.

Because he's also a poor man's Denard when it comes to throwing the ball, which, uh, yeah.

Gino's I find to be the worst, easily, of the deep dish places the tourists go. Lou's is best.
Pequod's is even better, but isn't where tourists go since it's up in Lincoln Park not near the El.

Game's probably closer if Glasgow could play, since the way to beat them was to force them to throw it downfield at our very good secondary. But if you can't stop the run, they aren't going to bother throwing it much.
And yeah, they were loaded with talent. How they turtled themselves into losing to an MSU team playing without its QB is still beyond my comprehension.

My high school was in a conference with a school (public, no recruiting or anything) that one year had a team with 3 seniors who all were eventually picked in the NBA draft (two 1st rounders, one 2nd), one of which became an all star. Needless to say, those games were not close.

Sounds like they need to get Solomon's mom up for a visit. At the very least, they can give her Gwendolyn Bush's number to chat.

There is definitely a huge difference between the magic injury getting the 5th year, and using it to get a 6th year. Or at least, you would think there would be. I mean, there's loads of evidence from MSU's own site that Davis wasn't hurt that first year, what with his "scout team player of the week" honors in there. I don't know how they walk that back, unless the NCAA just doesn't give a shit, and being that 6th years are pretty rarely granted, the NCAA probably does give a shit.
I think they're less worried about the 5th year ones because you're not having a guy a year beyond what you could have anyway.

To expound, prep school is still considered high school for NCAA eligibility purposes and thus it doesn't count against your years of eligibility to play football - you still have the 5 years to play 4 years.
It's more common in basketball. Spike is an example, a family friend of mine did it as well, go play a 5th year out east to play against better competition, fill out more if you're a skinny dude (friend was a 6'8" beanpole), get seen by more schools, and get a D-1 scholarship out of it.

At this point at the national team level, Jozy might just be a bench forward you bring in if you're winning.

Bedoya was exhausted, and it was obvious he was exhausted even before the yellow. Klinsmann even subbed him out not too long after the yellow. It was a dumb lapse, and it was obvious to a ton of people watching the game.
Same goes for Zardes, waiting until late in stoppage time to sub him out. He looked dead with 5, 10 minutes to go, and subs kill some time too.

Getting a guy from Mississippi to go out of state is notoriously hard. We've seen this before. And that was when both programs there sucked.

They mean a 370 guy, especially in high school, usually looks very fat, big gut, etc. Onwenu doesn't really look like that.
