“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”

I stopped at GERG. After I threw up, I read the rest.
You need a GERG warning at the top of this post.

It's incredibly depressing that we're hoping to be the 2012 version of MSU. Getting to 7ish wins while actually being good could be a disaster. The whole staff would be fired, there would be transfers, and we'd get a B-list hire.

Tired of where this program is heading?
I'm not publishing peoples' addresses and phone numbers for irate fans to yell at. If they want to, they can do their own leg work.

I just tried to do the same. It's amazing with StubHub advertised on the same damn page that they'll run up a $10 transaction fee on top of tickets that are 2-4x that of the resale market already.

There have always been holes in Narduzzi's defense. Frankly, there are holes in every defense.
Narduzzi makes a bet that college quarterbacks cannot make good decisions or throw accurately under pressure. He's almost always right. However, he needs great secondary play to make that defense work consistently. I'm not confident they can do that year after year. I'm also not confident they can do that against a player like Mariotta.

I think we've proven that's not true. We owned Iraqi and Afghani air immediately and only sort of owned the ground several years later. In a WWII context, that's a largely true statement. Today, not so much.
The Marine Corps "Small Wars Manual" was right, it's nearly impossible to defeat a determined insurgency.

Michigan has already had two bizarre box scores, Notre Dame and Miami. With Notre Dame, it's trying to figure out how you lose by 31 to a team with under 300 yards of offense, that Michigan outgained, that had no defensive touchdowns. With Miami, it's trying to figure out how the score was that close and the yardage totals so low given the utter level of dominance.
Michigan pounded Miami, but made a bunch of stupid mistakes that created a messy half. End of story.

Michigan should worry about: Maryland’s pass defense. When Clint Trickett looks like THAT, you’ve got problems.
Michigan can sleep soundly about: Maryland’s run defense. 3.0 yards per carry isn’t too bad.
That seems wrong?

|2 weeks 22 hours ago||The offense gets to control||
The offense gets to control when the play starts. It's an advantage teams should use. That doesn't mean sprinting up to the line and snapping with 35 seconds left, but it also doesn't mean huddling for 30 seconds, allowing the defense to pick its best personnel for a situation, and then getting to the and having to snap immediately without surveying the defense.
If nothing else, don't let the defense pick it's best personnel. You can stand at the line for 30 seconds just like you can stand in the huddle.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Adding the number of plays,||
Adding the number of plays, all else equal, should reduce variance and lead to the better team winning more often. However, all else isn't equal, so some styles of play and other factors may make moving slower more advantageous.
Different from tempo is GETTING OUT OF THE FUCKING HUDDLE! There's no reason to stroll up to the line with 10 seconds left and take whatever the defense gives you. You can stand at the line for 20 seconds without running a play while checking into an advantageous play.

My favorite part is when he gets clocked as he's getting up. Also, the 1920s movie playing dead thing.

|2 weeks 1 day ago||Michigan has given up 631||
Michigan has given up 631 yards of offense in 3 games. Sure, two of those teams are awful, but that's really good. The box scores say we blew out the two awful teams and played Notre Dame to a draw.
The loss to ND really hurts our shot at 10 wins, given that MSU still looks really strong, but I'm a believer at this point.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||That's an apples to apples||
That's an apples to apples comparison for most of the country. Very few teams have played more than one halfway decent opponent.
Also, we haven't averaged that kind of yardage without Denard since what, Tim Biakabatuka was around? The improvement relative to last year at this time, against similar opposition, is huge and Gardner isn't having to play hero ball to get there.

It's all about mobility. If you ever wore lineman's pads just 20 years ago, you could barely move your arms. I'm sure the materials and designs have improved, but it's all about allowing players freedom of movement.

How's the "drink milk" thing going? I feel like I'd be bloated and gassy 24/7, but I'm curious.

We actually are in agreement. The money grab is hurting a lot of people.
For me, I don't just want to lift. I like the body weight training and cardiovascular challenge. I like that I can do a basic strength program and a WOD in a reasonable amount of time.

Isn't that a "no-kidding" point though? The question should be what difference Rippetoe's programming would make relative to Aaron Wellman's. No one really knows that.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Rippetoe writes like a||
Rippetoe writes like a lunatic. I found this, Starting Strength, and Practical Programming to be brutal reads that had to be studied to get anything out of. He makes a lot of sense, but it's hard to see that through the writing.
This article seems based on a lot of anecdotes and conjecture. He's clearly right that Devin Gardner has athletic potential I'll never match, but that doesn't mean S&C coaches are idiots. The young guys who come into college programs look totally different and are clearly stronger and faster after 4 years in a serious training program.

I'm a Crossfit guy. Love it. It's fun, efficient, and competitive. Anyone interested in basic wellness should think about it as opposed to going to a gym.
Crossfit has a serious coaching problem. The requirements to open a box are absurdly low and idiots abound. I started with a great coach. I'm up over 500lb deadlift, 350 squat, 300 bench, etc from about 20% lower on 5-6 hours per week. I haven't had a real injury since I started.
Good coaches are great. Bad ones are flat dangerous.

It's cool. I think it's better not to delete those posts because it helps remind people that Ace Williams is an Internet click troll.

Art Briles and Jim Harbaugh are the dream candidates.
After that, Craig Bohl from Wyoming (via NDSU) might be a home run.
After that, I'm voting for Nussmeier. He's a rising star, regardless of last week, and is an offensive innovator.

Ace Williams is not and never will be credible. We're not in the business of letting his links on the board.
