Hmm.

Alabama is the team that shutout the number three team in the nation in that team's stadium.

We've got a long way to go.

 

But we're trending...

Long way to go before this team can beat Alabama.

But the way they're improving week-to-week, sky's the limit.

But helmet-to-helmet is NOT the same thing nor a necessary component of "Targeting" in the NCAA. And the clear LAUNCH should have qualified it as Targeting:

https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2016/9/7/12829482/targeting-penalty-rulebook-ncaa-football

 

FTA:

No player shall target and make forcible contact to the head or neck area of a defenseless opponent (See Note 2 below) with the helmet, forearm, hand, fist, elbow or shoulder. This foul requires that there be at least one indicator of targeting (See Note 1 below). When in question, it is a foul (Rules 2-27-14 and 9-6). (A.R. 9-1-4-I-VI)

Note 1: "Targeting" means that a player takes aim at an opponent for purposes of attacking with forcible contact that goes beyond making a legal tackle or a legal block or playing the ball. Some indicators of targeting include but are not limited to:

  • Launch—a player leaving his feet to attack an opponent by an upward and forward thrust of the body to make forcible contact in the head or neck area
  • A crouch followed by an upward and forward thrust to attack with forcible contact at the head or neck area, even though one or both feet are still on the ground
  • Leading with helmet, shoulder, forearm, fist, hand or elbow to attack with forcible contact at the head or neck area
  • Lowering the head before attacking by initiating forcible contact with the crown of the helmet

Respekty.

We're playing checkers.

He's playing 3-Dimensional Space Go.

Dantonio deserves respect. He prepares specifically for Michigan because the stakes are higher when it comes to recruiting.

His teams play up to the level of competition consistently. And they don't give up, playing all four quarters. We shouldn't and I'm sure Harbaugh isn't, taking Michigan State for granted.

Wisconsin was great and all, but much room for improvement, and MSU will exploit those areas in which we fail to improve.

Most important quote from the article imho:

"Michigan State lives to disturb and disrupt teams that think they have their shit together, and Michigan definitely qualifies at the moment."

In terms of rate of improvement?

Absolutely.

The picture at the top of this article is my new wallpaper.

10/13/2018 - 11:30am It'll happen, and then…

It'll happen, and then afterwards the national media will conclude we still haven't had a "REAL" win yet and that Harbaugh hasn't demonstrated ability to beat challenging opponent.

10/12/2018 - 3:43pm I loved/love Hoke.

I loved/love Hoke.

He just wasn't the right head coach for us. And I think he knew it, too, and was bummed about it.

Don't buy it and put the money towards a new car.

Not that that car is too bad for the money.

But start saving.

I was watching Red Dawn, and the guy with the gun shouted, "Wolverines!"

 

So, I thought that was good.

 

Just wanted to participate.

I wish I had done myself a bigger favor and not look at this thread.

Looking forward to the day when a beatdown like this becomes boring.

I loved every second of this.

 

More, please.

Is calling timeout when you don't have any left considered a penalty?

Not in the Big Ten.

Until OL out of hibernation, the whole football program is in hibernation.

Honestly, the only REAL updates I think I really need to read (or should have read since RichRod) are strictly regarding OL.

That's it.

 

God Bless, and Go Blue!

If they're aware it is going on, they know to ignore it.

But it is only blown to draw the visiting team offsides, not the home team naturally.

Or while a ND ballcarrier is near the sideline (but still inbounds) in order to cause the defender to slowdown while figuring out if the play is legitimately dead lest they risk a late hit penalty, obviously.

Bad enough that the Stanford head coach called them out on it after it cost them the game.

08/28/2018 - 10:44pm Strange, strange, bullshitty…

Strange, strange, bullshitty, things happen in South Bend.

 

Even if we have the better team on paper and play better, we still can and have lost.

Just saying, buckle up. And remember when considering what could happen, nothing's too low for Notre Dame.

08/16/2018 - 1:54pm If we beat them, I know I…

If we beat them, I know I should be wanting Notre Dame to keep winning afterwards in order to make our victory look more impressive.

But damn, those unis make it so very hard to ever want Notre Dame to win anything. Ever.

But the real question is: did Urban Meyer's practice ever run long?

08/06/2018 - 8:16pm Good God, I'll never make it.

Good God, I'll never make it.

It's not a given that he goes Blue at all.

 

But it's hard not to see him in Ann Arbor when it was essentially a coin toss BEFORE this.

Unlike the wife-beating coverup, given this guy's history of creating entrapping footage using some questionable methods, I think this falls under the "don't pass judgement lest ye be judged" category.

07/28/2018 - 6:51pm Don't know what letter grade…

Don't know what letter grade to give.

 

Just know that I feel like he knows how to run a winning program and that I think at any given time it can come all together.But it hasn't yet and I feel like Harbaugh isn't flailing: he sees where the problems are and knows how to reasonably set about fixing them. 

But even for the best coach, sometimes a reasonable fix works. Sometimes you need go back to the drawing board.

I just feel at some point he'll get it all in synch.

So grade?

Tactically B-.

Strategically A.

Those Buckeyes and Spartans really suck, eh?

And to hell with Notre Dame, amiright?

07/20/2018 - 10:11am This has got to be the…

This has got to be the longest off-season ever.

Just feels like we're THISCLOSE to it coming all together. But I'm surrounded by rivals long overdue for a smackdown here, especially Golden Domers.

It's a slow burn this summer.

07/08/2018 - 10:27am Don't believe it.

Buckeye…

Don't believe it.

Buckeye who is enjoying burning ants under the magnifying glass is all.

(Obvious defense mechanism on my part at play).

07/02/2018 - 11:19am He's catfishing us, that's…

He's catfishing us, that's how Buckeye he is (I think. I don't have any inside info and this is just a defense mechanism...).
