The only newsworthy part about this is that they felt the need to wear college football playoff patches on their jerseys, which is the most MSU thing ever

This actually wouldn't be the most far fetched idea of all time, the lions do have a ton of talent to work with and you'd already have a solid DC if you could retain Teryl Austin. I don't see the Ravens actually letting him go after one bad season due to a crazy number of injuries though

But should Bush really feel indebted to us because we offered two of his teammates and they accepted? (If we'd be disappointed taking them without Bush, should've never offered them IMO.) Or because we worked with his father for a satellite camp that was clearly mutually beneficial? I want him to make the decision to come here because he actually wants to, not feels pressured to.

The 2012 team went 8-4 in the regular season with losses to the #1,2, and 3 teams at the end of the season, with the 4th loss to Nebraska when Denard got hurt. I really don't get why everyone is so quick to bash that team.

Even more surprising considering he's Andre Rison's son, who had a great career at MSU and most assumed he was a lock to go there. Also this trend has to be concerning for them, with 4 decommitments in under a week. I'm loving every second of it.

I couldn't agree more. For anything that is not a live game, I have no reason to watch ESPN anymore. Their daytime talk shows are awful. Most of their talking heads often try to just get by with offering commentary on drama that is going on within a sport, instead of the sport itself. And even for highlights, sportscenter has gone from must watch TV to unnecessary for me. It's much easier to take out my computer or iPad and find highlights of just the specific games I'm interested in, and I don't have to watch all the ads or fillers that come with watching SC.

They had almost the exact same timeframe the last time, when they fired Kiffin mid-season, and look how that turned out. 

IMO, they need to stop looking for a USC guy like Sark was. It's that same thinking that got us Hoke. You hire the best coach, period. And I don't think Haden should be the one doing it either. 

10/12/2015 - 4:07pm I know TDs thrown for a QB is

I know TDs thrown for a QB is usually a very important stat, but I wonder how well it translates to our analysis of Rudock, as it seems that our offensive playcalling seems to heavily prefer to run the ball in for a TD rather than pass in red zone situations (nothing wrong with that IMO). I mean Rudock himself has at least 3 rushing TDs as far as my memory serves. Doesn't mean Rudock isn't doing his job as far as moving the offense down the field. Edit: Also, some quick googling shows we're ranked #14 in the country in red zone efficiency, so maybe the strategy of running it there is a good one.

And as far as INTs too, if you acknowledge the Utah game as an outlier (possibly chemistry issues with Perry), you're looking at 3 interceptions in 5 games, putting him at 7.2 INTs/12 games, which are fairly close to Cook's numbers.

Some great points. I've been amazed by the improvement on defense as well, but that's what great coaching will do. The secondary looks so much better it's absurd. It's been beaten to death but I think Manning coaching DBs with no previous experience doing it was a horrible decision.

And I'd argue with regards to the run game that they're not exactly identical, we racked up huge numbers against App St and Miami(OH) last year and that probably makes those stats misleading.

Apologies, was looking at it on the app and all the columns didn't show up at first. Knowing the TD/Int ratios are the exact same, all I have to say is wow. It's amazing how everyone else elevating their game can mask mediocre QB play.

There were many who said the only reason RR wasn't successful here was because he couldn't or M wouldn't put up the money to get Casteel as his DC. And now that looks like a flimsy statement at best, so yeah I'd say it's pretty relevant.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Harbaugh would have done wonders with Gardner, and it's a damn shame Gardner never got the coaching he needed.

As far as your analysis though, you left out turnovers, which would be a major factor to compare as well. The YPA is also interesting, Gardner's was 7.65 to Rudock's 6.46.

Because the objective is to win the game, not hurt other players. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that we play very physically and as long as we're playing clean, it doesn't bother me too much if other players get hurt. It is football after all, and players will get hurt. But do we have to make a thread counting the number of opposing players we hurt, and treat it like it's an accomplishment?
