This is what they need and what I would watch.  75-69 games wouldn't be any better than a 130-125 game.  What makes defense fun to watch is when a good defense goes up against a killer offense and can stop them, a la the Michigan Wolverines.  It's the same in the NFL or the MLB.  Everyone wants to see JV shut down the Yankees.  No one wants to see every team score 20 runs per game or 2 runs per game.  There needs to be some variation.

I wouldn’t consider an appendectomy and benign tumor to be major medical issues. 

01/12/2019 - 8:24pm Still leaves me more…

Still leaves me more confident in our chances this year to win it all.  There's no '17-'18 Villanova out there.  Duke is far from unbeatable.  Kansas is far from unbeatable.  Virginia seems similar to us but we're better offensively.  Izzo Beilein's bitch.  Tennessee I actually know nothing about, but Woodson won the Heisman.  I'd bet on us if I had any money.

Fleming’s film is freakish. He looks like a stallion at a pony ride for kids. Gains like 20 yards on guys on 50 yard runs. There are some promising quotes up on 247 with him talking about the combination of Michigan and Gattis and his interest. Seems to want to stay in the Big Ten at this juncture.

Illinois must be the best 4-11 team in the country.  Their defense is legit.

Might have to pull up the podcast for that one. He’s been talking for months about Mork cratering the program by hanging onto his buddies forever.

01/10/2019 - 7:16pm Actually Partridge's…

Actually Partridge's recruiting footprint always seemed to be all of Jersey EXCEPT the Catholic school powerhouses not named Paramus that routinely crank out 4 and 5 star players.  Their coaches all hated him because he got Gary and Peppers to transfer to Paramus and made the school a national power for a few years as I recall.

I could easily see them enjoying it more than Saban’s assistants enjoy their jobs.

01/09/2019 - 9:57pm Didn't realize Dakich was…

Didn't realize Dakich was coaching/GA for OSU until I saw him at the end of the game.  That's a bummer.  Not a Mattison bummer, maybe not even a Spike bummer, but a bummer.

01/09/2019 - 12:28pm Hate to be a cynic, but are…

Hate to be a cynic, but are there two worse places for a small, shifty back to go than Alabama and Michigan? Maybe MSU?  He’ll be moved to practice squad DB at either place if history is any indication.

01/08/2019 - 12:00am What does this even mean? …

What does this even mean?  What does being held accountable look like?  Getting fired?  That gets us nowhere.  Being blamed?  Everyone is blaming him that I've heard.  The end of the season was totally on the coaches and everyone and their mother is saying so.  So who's not holding him accountable?  You want Warde to come out and say Harbaugh sucked ass the last two games of the year?  I'm sure that would really help morale within the program.  Everyone knows it, and saying it specifically and in public doesn't achieve anything but make top level assistants less likely to want to come here.

01/05/2019 - 6:56pm I would actually say the…

I would actually say the opposite.  Rather have 3 vipers instead of three traditional linebackers.  Teams are beating us with speed not with size.

01/05/2019 - 3:35pm Excellent form on the ball…

Excellent form on the ball spin but I hope we never see it again.  Safety looked like he just zoned out or something on that TD.  Announcer talking about Michigan needing explosiveness was right up until he suggested better players would change that...  I don't see any offensive coordinators playing in this game.

01/02/2019 - 7:12pm Who was that DT that wen to…

Who was that DT that wen to UVA that almost came here with Hand? Did he ever amount to anything? I remember they were recruiting really well for a couple years there and clearly nothing really came of it.

12/30/2018 - 7:13pm Utilizing our best players…

Utilizing our best players on offense more effectively MUST be the priority all offseason. We have 3 WRs who could be going in the first two rounds of the draft and would probably all be competing for the top WR in the country if they weren’t stealing receptions from each other and were used more. Additionally we have one of the best TEs in the draft. Despite this, we play slow as F*** and depend on the run game even when it’s not working at all. There are other ways to wear a defense down than running it all game. For being so smart when it comes to football, Harbaugh’s stubbornness is making him look like a buffoon.

12/29/2018 - 2:30pm Well if the New Years 6…

Well if the New Years 6 bowls weren’t meaningless before they’re certainly beating every last drop of life out of them by playing highlights of the playoff teams instead of the teams in the game every single break.

12/29/2018 - 12:33pm No Dax today.

No Dax today.

12/22/2018 - 11:15pm Eeeehh.. I would amend that…

Eeeehh.. I would amend that to we HAVE played better basketball than anyone in the country THIS YEAR.  Right now we're definitely not playing the best.  I have full confidence that we'll pick it up in the conference schedule and in March though.

Coach in waiting for when Coach K retires?  

12/22/2018 - 11:10pm What the hell is Walton…

What the hell is Walton talking about?  All he can say is whatever happens you can't storm the court??  Get your priorities straight man.

12/18/2018 - 9:33am Well all we can hope is that…

Well all we can hope is that Larry Johnson leaves for Maryland and they can’t develop Dlinemen anymore. He was always going to be a bit of a project with a very high ceiling.

12/16/2018 - 11:23am I thought the two brothers…

I thought the two brothers both dropped out and went to play overseas? Am I remembering wrong? How would he still be eligible?

12/16/2018 - 11:20am Great pick and all and love…

Great pick and all and love Peppers, but that didn’t seem all that amazing to me. He just read the lob. Degree of difficulty didn’t seem that high for an NFL DB.

12/11/2018 - 5:18pm I think actually the problem…

I think actually the problem these days is that the media has stolen the narrative. The questions they ask are so obviously agenda driven so they can write a predetermined storyline that the players and coaches have to answer with as vanilla a response as they can in order to not feed that narrative.  This year’s team was the least PC one I can remember, and still it’s not good enough. Behind closed doors I’m sure the team understands very well the importance of the game. I couldn’t care less if they talk at all about it in public.

12/04/2018 - 10:34pm Basketball is so fucking…

Basketball is so fucking hard to watch sometimes because the refs constantly anticipate calls.  Livers just got called for two fouls, one where he clearly had his hand on the ball, and the other because he was running next to a guy and the guy decided to bump into him before his layup.  Both got called just because the shots looked abnormal and most of the time the defender would've fouled.  Gives me flashbacks to The Block that I don't want to have.

12/04/2018 - 9:10am Really blows that Urbz will…

Really blows that Urbz will go out undefeated against us, but whatevs. Having them at home next year with a new coach will hopefully help us get that monkey off our back. And you gotta think this will help with Harrison. Would be a nice consolation prize after Brohm decided to wait a year for a better job than Louisville and hang onto Karlaftis.

12/01/2018 - 9:35pm The problem seems pretty…

The problem seems pretty clearly to be not the playbook itself, but the play calling.  We saw a huge diversity of personnel and designs throughout the year, but way too large a proportion was just basic and predictable.  Shea showed he could handle any playcall, could handle the pressure, but then they shelved half the playbook in the most important game of the year.  I'm still all on board, but in game decisions have always been Harbaugh's problem, from playcalling, to clock management, to being too stubborn to kick it into high gear when we need points fast.  The other thing that seems to not be his forte is getting the team pumped up.  I truly wonder if that's part of the problem in big games.  Every locker room speech I've seen of his has just been hokey (not like Hoke, but hokey like a goofy dad... so a little bit like Hoke).

Someone forward to Zach Harrison.

11/29/2018 - 10:41am I would re-introduce real…

I would re-introduce real reporting rather than clickbaiters and hot take experts who work for the same network that owns the conference, so we could actually get some hard hitting reporting about Players getting paid and getting off easy for criminal activity. This will be regardless of if players start getting paid because you know those same teams are going to get fat signing bonuses beyond the set limit.

11/29/2018 - 9:13am Shit like this comes out all…

Shit like this comes out all the time. It’s a game of telephone. Probably some player was pissed that he did something wrong and they made him run and it transformed through 4 messengers into the coaches ran everyone into the ground. There’s no way that happened. The coaches have been around for a long time. They’re not that dumb.

11/25/2018 - 7:48pm I’m still all in on the…

I’m still all in on the Harbaugh train, but this is the most confusing thing about his tenure. He uses unique looks and personnel as trick plays continuously when they are very effective. He goes away from what’s working to go back to what might be working, but not as well. Pepcat, mason, RPO... the whole season seems like a setup for OSU every year and then we abandon the plan for game 12 and go with a simple dumbed down offense. It’s mindblowing. We need an insider to ask WTF they’re thinking with that.

11/24/2018 - 9:25pm They didn't refund you for…

They didn't refund you for the shirt you had made?

11/24/2018 - 9:22pm I guess the best sad loser…

I guess the best sad loser victory for us is for ND to lose, not make the playoff, have OSU go to the playoff and get beat 60-6 by Alabama in the semifinal, and we go to the Rose Bowl to play some equally sad PAC12 champ.  Luckily its not Washington St. because we would get air raided off the field again.  Aaaaaand ND scores...

11/24/2018 - 9:15pm Patterson could come back…

Patterson could come back and have everyone on offense back except Higdon.  If Charbonnet lives up to the hype and Evans can get a single block in his life the offense will be lethal.  Oh, and if Harbaugh fires Pep, and himself as OC.  Anyway the point is the passing game could be incredible if we'd pass it more.

11/24/2018 - 9:07pm Everyone keeps mentioning…

Everyone keeps mentioning this three second rule.  Three seconds is WAY too long to get pressure.  The QB is never going to need 3 seconds to let a route develop unless its a deep shot, which is a small percentage of the throws in a game.  Haskins had all. day.  The whole season we were seeing pressure from Winovich, Uche, Gary (although he rarely got home), and Bush basically immediately after the snap.  It seemed today like they were running into the chests of the Olinemen rather than into gaps.  Every single snap they were getting stood up.  Its like they forgot how to play.  Their Oline didn't suddenly become Alabama after giving up pressure to every other team in the Big Ten.  Our guys lost their minds.  In a bad way.

11/24/2018 - 9:01pm Welp Brohm has reaffirmed…

Welp Brohm has reaffirmed his commitment to Purdue and Ohio State put on a nice show for Harrison.  I anticipate coaching up more three stars on the defensive line and not getting any push for years to come. At a certain point you have to stop scheming to win and just have the talent and athleticism to win.  OSU recruits a 1-3 new 4.5-5 star defensive linemen every single year and it showed today.  When the chips are down it boils down to who's better one on one.  I'd say at least we had Gary, and I love the guy, very disruptive 11 games out of the year, but like it or not I don't remember a single impact play he made.  The offense put up more than enough points to win.  The defensive performance was just absolutely baffling.

11/24/2018 - 2:09pm I’m one of the player…

I’m one of the player interviews this week one of the guys (can’t remember who) said they hadn’t really gotten into Gil on OSU yet and I think that was Monday or Tuesday. Thought for sure that was a lie for the reporters but now I’m not so sure... separate from game planning, our Dline isn’t getting any pressure whatsoever. I thought their Oline was supposed to suck?

11/23/2018 - 9:30pm Cowherd has been yapping…

Cowherd has been yapping this week about how OU should get in above Michigan for the chance at Bama because the game would be more exciting.  This shit is so boring.  There is literally no suspense because you know every drive will end in a touchdown untouched.

11/23/2018 - 9:03pm What happened there?  Turned…

What happened there?  Turned it on right as he was freaking out.  Did they confirm a concussion and he didn't agree?

11/23/2018 - 9:02pm WVU just successfully…

WVU just successfully defended themselves by committing a totally unnecessary offensive PI.  The WVU offense is better at defense than Oklahoma's defense.

11/23/2018 - 8:57pm Whats the next level of…

Whats the next level of scoring fest above shootout?

11/20/2018 - 1:31pm And next week Brohm goes to…

And next week Brohm goes to Louisville... Don Brown’s reign of terror continues.

11/18/2018 - 11:21pm Yeah those are some pretty…

Yeah those are some pretty bad options other than maybe Washington but they may be on a downward trajectory with Browning headed out.  The list does make it seem like he's just looking for a reason to stay on the West Coast though.  Wonder why he's not looking at Stanford?

Blatant makeup call. Even more uncatchable than Maryland’s.

11/17/2018 - 3:42pm Blatant makeup call. Even…

Blatant makeup call. Even more uncatchable than Maryland’s.

11/17/2018 - 3:40pm If they go for two I’m…

If they go for two I’m betting a thousand bucks on us to win because it will show just how little confidence they have.

Our Defense will eat this Oline alive.

11/17/2018 - 3:32pm Lol that was unreal

Lol that was unreal

11/17/2018 - 3:31pm Much better for them to not…

Much better for them to not get it in on first down. OSU WILL score if they have over a minute left.

11/17/2018 - 3:17pm Gotta like our state of mind…

Gotta like our state of mind a lot more than OSU’s heading into this week of practice. Much better to go in saying “just keep doing what we’re doing and open up the playbook” than to be saying “we need to play MUCH better to hold up in this game.” The Amorality Bowl this week is sure to take a toll on them. Also Urbz is almost certainly gone after this year. He’s either doing very not well on the sideline or is pretending to do not well to have an excuse to leave. We may never know.
