lol a lot of o-linemen do the same thing.  they usually try to coach them not to do that, but if the player thinks he needs to position himself differently to gain an edge, they'll do it anyway.

 

11/12/2018 - 7:47pm Correct.

 

Correct.

tv showed hill walking down the tunnel, wasn't limping or staggering , didn't need help, so if it's a concussion I would guess it isn't severe.  Maybe he misses next week but probably back for Ohio, I would assume.

Also curious if Winovich is ok.  lol, he landed right on top of another player's bent knee, impacting the crotch area ....

I hope they're able to rest some guys against Indiana.  Hope Peters gets some playing time next week.  He should have gotten some more Saturday if he's the true #2.

late to this thread but Brandstatter is pretty rough as PBP.     I'm not at the point of wanting him replaced, but getting players wrong is very irritating, yeah.  Get some new glasses or ask for a bigger monitor in your booth or something.   You'd think he'd have learned what good PBP is from Beckman.

Shortly after the game the Purdue head coach's wiki page had his job description changed to "Urban Meyer's Daddy".   Was changed back sometime Sunday, but I got a chuckle.  Also this is the first time I've tried to embed an image on the new site so here's hoping it works :)

Faked the FG attempt

https://www.lansingstatejournal.com/story/sports/2018/10/13/michigan-state-penn-state-football-fake-field-goal/1630585002/

At this point MSU attempts fakes often enough that I'd just tell my players to always expect a fake.

I don't know about your entire OL being a "trouble spot" in the graphic above.  Even w/the troubles MSU has had w/OL  I saw several times your interior 3 OL push PSU's DL around.  I think this game will be close.  Or maybe I'm just telling myself that because I don't want to deal w/my boss (who went to MSU) on Monday.

After watching the PSU v MSU game, I don't see how you can label their entire offensive line as a trouble spot.  I saw several times MSU's interior OL handle PSU's line on run plays just fine.

Face it folks, MSU is better than we like to think.  This will be a close one.

" Many people are saying Shea Patterson should be benched "

lol what?  How many of these people are multimillion dollar head coaches? none? that's what I thought.

"This offense puts a lot of pressure on everyone on the field to do their job perfectly on every play. "

As opposed to Hoke's style of offense, where people could screw up half the time and everything would work just fine.... oh wait, uh... yeah, I'll take Harbaugh, still, thanks.

Also Northwestern had a bye week before us, so more time to prepare something new to throw at us.

The defense has been the strong point during the entire duration of the Harbaugh era.   Don Brown's been particularly good at shutting teams down in the 2nd half.  I will never understand why people are worried about the defense when the offense continues to be the weak spot.

 

 

 

10/01/2018 - 11:20am Maryland has had a bye week…

Maryland has had a bye week before us, just like Northwestern did.  I predict another close game.

And then Wisconsin has a nice warm-up scrimmage against Nebraska the week before they play us.

I figured it was all just talk but after that absolutely ridiculous "holding" penalty against Higdon, I'm starting to think these guys clearly have it out for Harbaugh.

Carr was 6-7 vs OSU
        10-3 vs MSU
         5-4 vs ND
         6-7 bowl games

were people expecting Harbaugh to do better?  The only thing you could count on was beating MSU, and that was at least partly due to  MSU being not very good every year.  OSU, ND, bowl games were always competitive.

Best comment, and also why I stopped listening to sports programs.  It's pretty much all of the above, over and over.

For a moment, I thought to myself "Did Patterson get hurt in practice?" and panicked.

I'll see myself out.

He isn't going anywhere.   We would all experience an overdose of schadenfreude if he were to go, but let's just admit to ourselves they'll never have the nerve to destabilize their football powerhouse.

They fought tooth and nail to keep Tressel and they'll do the same for Meyer.

I'll believe Meyer is gone when he is actually gone.

06/04/2018 - 9:57am playcalling wasn't an issue

playcalling wasn't an issue IMO,  plays were there but we had QB's that couldn't get it done.  OSU game was good example of this IIRC.

who else are you going to get if not Harbaugh?  we got the guy everyone wanted.

EDIT:  2016, three games lost by 5 points.  that was the year UM had a chance to win a championship.  Wouldn't have ever happened under Hoke even w/same talent. We are now rebuilding, IMO.   If defense remains where it was (very good) and offense just moves up to slightly above average, we'll contend again.   2018 hinges on QB play IMO.

"More $$ for mental health support."

This.  This is the last area of health that people are still uncomfortable dealing with.  As a society we've poured billions into research for cancer , which is good, but I doubt if the same level of attention has been put into finding treatments for mental health. Resources aren't limitless but more needs to be done.

Laughing so hard at this thread I'm crying.  This is THE BEST thread on this board, EVER.   It can't get better than a 3AM update on the 9th place US bobsled team followed by dozens of drunk posts.

01/29/2018 - 1:49pm She beat up on a lot of women

She beat up on a lot of women who weren't as athletic or skilled as she was.  First thing I noticed about Holm was that she was every bit as strong as Rousey and I think Rousey didn't know how to handle it.

Then she came back (looking fit as can be, FWIW) and lost to Amanda Nunes who was an even worse matchup (than Holm) for Rousey and it showed.

Anyway she could have a long career in WWE and parlay that into more movie and TV roles like many pro wrestlers do.  She'll be fine.

01/10/2018 - 11:46am Honestly I don't care for the

Honestly I don't care for the Hoke comparisons.   Hoke's trajectory was down from the first year and never recovered.   Harbaugh took a bad 5-7 team and went 10-3.  The following year had three razor thin losses.  This season took a step back due to OL and QB, and it's that simple.   I think the OL will be serviceable next season.   Defense will be good again.  It all hinges on solid QB play.

You answered your own question.
