We can put Woodson, et all in the "Before time. In the long, long ago."  No foolies.

Love it.  When we beat them, I want to hear their excuses this time.  Not only that but it bones Sparty in recruiting.  Good luck going against Meyer and Hokeamania, Trolltonio.

Living in OSU country, the fans have been nothing short of obnoxious.  They said "Michigan isn't going to the National Title game so they shouldn't celebrate so much." Are you kidding? 10-2, a (probable) BCS invite and beating your biggest rival is cause for celebration.

Not to mention all the "well it's about time they won" talk.  Even in defeat, OSU fan's are insufferable.

After The Process, I'll wait for the press conference to happen before I buy it.

I try to comprehend the remaining support for Paterno but can't. Nevermind having read the Grand Jury report; what about the simple fact that JoePa passed the buck and never followed up to make sure something was done?

His legacy absolutely deserves to be ruined in this case.  Kids lives were ruined because of inaction by Paterno and others.  There is no other way about this.

11/09/2011 - 2:17pm Is anyone REALLY surprised by

Is anyone REALLY surprised by this clusterfuck of a cover-up? When money and The Brand are involved, men will do irrational, evil things to protect it because we are animals and animals only worry about survival.

The higher-ups who are already casualties made the decision that protecting The Brand and its image was more important than doing what was right and, honestly, would it be all that surprising if this had happened somewhere else as opposed to PSU? No, because money and power and self-image corrupt.

The fact of the matter (as has been touched on several times in this thread) is that while Paterno legally did what was asked of him, he didn't follow through and his actions (or lack thereof) resulted in a serial child abuser not only being able to roam free but to continue to do what he'd been doing on PSU's campus.

I won't argue that Paterno should've gone to the police or confronted Sandusky himself or anything like that but the simple fact that he did not once follow up, even after seeing Sandusky around campus for 9 years, says more about Paterno than anything else.  Which is a shame; the man did so much good and this one horrible instance wipes all of that out.

Paterno should be pushed out, should have this black mark on his career/life until the day he dies, and though it won't happen, he should be hit with criminal negligence for his lack of a follow up.

Excellent all around.  I love that Mattison seems forthcoming and honest.  There's always going to be a certain amount of coach-speak but these are the few pressers where I feel like I'm actually learning something.

He "momentarily" lost  his composure? Several times?

10/20/2011 - 3:55pm Coaching or Player Problem?

With the way others on the defense seem to be improving as the season goes (Ryan), I am starting to wonder if maybe Morgan/Demens/Hawthorne just don't have good read/reaction skills?  You would think something that is apparent to a blogger (no offense intended) would be apparent to a defensive coordinator, especially one like Mattison and that it would be covered in practice but at this point, who knows?

Either way, it's concerning and I hope Mattison can either find a way to mask that and lessen the read/react for those guys or find guys who can read/react (not likely at this point).

I've had the same issues including trying to access recent posts.

I believe the answer is one ski mask per scholarship year.  I wonder if it specifies color, though.

I want the offense to make at least one Purdue coach curl into the fetal position and weep uncontrollably.

10/18/2011 - 3:52pm Very thankful to Brian and

Very thankful to Brian and John for bringing this to the site and allowing us a little more insight.  (pre-ordered my copy, btw, and can't wait to get into it.)

That said, without going through every post from the three pages I have a general question that maybe can't be answered or is maybe a little naive:  when it comes down to it, why isn't the most important thing winning?  Rodriguez did it at WVU but it seems he really wasn't given a very good chance and that some wanted him to fail. 

I understand the decision to not bring in Casteel: when money is in play, those who control it can be greedy and opt to save a few bucks in the present when spending those extra few dollars could lead to something big in the future.

But this idea of a "Michigan Man" who is more about respecting the traditions of the past than actually winning games is (to me, at least) restrictive to the possible success of the program. Who cares how the coach manages to coerce wins out of his team (legally, of course)? Why is it important to do things the way Bo or Lloyd did it? Why the hell are some people so afraid of change?

I have to admit that I never attended Michigan and that, in my relatively young life, I've only rooted for the Wolverines for a short time (since '02) so maybe I just don't get it.  But it's frustrating to see the team struggle and, at times, undermine itself.

Like MSU? If anyone knows "classless", it's the brahs.

10/11/2011 - 1:56pm Completely agree on hating

Completely agree on hating the fans more than the players at this point.  Being in Ohio, it's been a whole lot quieter of late.  Here's hoping the NCAA comes down hard.

10/06/2011 - 4:35pm That Triple Option looks like

That Triple Option looks like it's going to be deadly if Denard can get the reads down.  This may be me speaking as a football novice in terms of play-calling/recognition, but is it safe to assume that there will be a pass option for Denard?  It seems like it could be an edge version of Oh Noes.

The next time Gee is in front of a camera, I'll be expecting Brian Fantana to walk in and say "Take it easy, Champ. Why don't you sit this next one out, stop talking for awhile."

10/05/2011 - 4:32pm So, Will Campbell is

So, Will Campbell is becoming, dare I say, functional. Which, between that and the overall competency of the current defense, makes me wonder just how bad GERG was.  Not to mention Tony Gibson was a mole. There's no other way to describe it.

Also: EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Countess.

I'm done.

I'm one more good game away from being full on "EEEEEEE Countess", logical or no.

How long before Football Cat moves ahead of Bauserman on OSU's depth chart?

09/30/2011 - 3:04pm I love Denard to death so I

I love Denard to death so I sort of hate saying this out loud (or in print) but: maybe Denard just isn't a good passing quarterback.  I would hope that, at this point, he's still just uncomfortable but he stares down receivers, over-throwing for miles, etc. and that seems like something a "good" QB wouldn't be struggling with.

I hope he can figure it out, get some confidence in the next few games before the meat and potatoes of the B1G schedule. 

I also hope that Borges pounds "if I have a chance to run, I will run" into Denard's head.

No one's going to talk about Les "The Animal" Steele, huh?

09/28/2011 - 3:48pm Wisconsin for two

Wisconsin for two reasons:

1.) Anything to potentially shake the psyche of an upcoming opponent.

2.) If Nebraska is getting crushed, Bo Pelini may kill and eat someone on the field.

Go Badgers! (and Pelini rage-slaughter!)

09/28/2011 - 3:43pm I would pay cash to see

I would pay cash to see Shanny break down the violation and the punishment in detail.  If only he could have done it for OSU; that would have been a cinema-length epic.

I've said it before and I'll say it again -- until we actually finish the game with a "W", I'm always at maximum terror-level.

Great job.  Although, after watching Michigan these last few years, my fear for everyone but Baby Seal U is "10".

Never was a big fan of his (I hated the Stars) but he was as pretty a skater as there ever was.  Always a classy guy.  Helluva career.
