11/05/2018 - 1:23pm the rules say:

 


ARTICLE…

the rules say:

 

ARTICLE 3. An invalid signal is any waving signal by a player of Team B:

a. That does not meet the requirements of Article 2 (above); or

b. That is given after a scrimmage kick is caught beyond the neutral zone, strikes the ground or touches another player beyond the neutral zone (A.R. 6-5-3-III-V); or

c. That is given after a free kick is caught, strikes the ground or touches another player. [Exception: Rule 6-4-1-f]


And if it is an Invalid Signal:

A player of the receiving team within the boundary lines attempting to catch a kick, and so located that he could have caught a free kick or a scrimmage kick that is beyond the neutral zone, must be given an unimpeded opportunity to catch the kick (A.R. 6-3-1-III, A.R. 6-4-1-V, VI and IX).

ARTICLE 3. a. A catch after an invalid signal is not a fair catch, and the ball is dead where caught or recovered. If the signal follows a catch or recovery, the ball is dead when the signal is first given (A.R. 6-5-1-I).

No Advance ARTICLE 2. No Team B player shall carry a caught or recovered ball more than two steps in any direction after any Team B player gives a valid or invalid fair catch signal (A.R. 6-5-2-I-III). PENALTY—Dead-ball foul. Five yards from the succeeding spot [S7 and S21]

No Tackling ARTICLE 5. No player of the kicking team shall tackle or block an opponent who has completed a fair catch. Only the player making a fair catch signal has this protection (A.R.6-5-5-I and III). PENALTY—Dead-ball foul. Receiving team’s ball 15 yards from the succeeding spot [S7 and S38].

 

he raised his hand above his waist -- to me this is an invalid signal but any hand waving/pointing that high could easily be construed by a defended as a fair catch.  I remember a couple years ago Jabrill Peppers did this as well and they blew it dead

10/19/2018 - 4:21pm Ron,

I love your football…

Ron,

I love your football takes. You're well rounded and reasonable in everything you say. Even this.

I'm also going to read this book you suggested because I get off on books like that.

Anyway, I bought a 1 billion dollar lottery ticket today.  I am not likely to win.  But the stats on how impossible my chances are worth absolutely jack shit tomorrow if I do win.  Just like everything statistically leading into this game vs MSU isn't worth it's weight the pixels that it takes up on my screen if Michigan doesn't win

What happened yesterday is not an indication of what will happen today -- none of these stats mean anything if we don't win

10/17/2018 - 4:51pm just so you know as of 2015…

just so you know as of 2015 people over 30 years old made up the following:

  • 26+ million holders of student loan debt
  • $840+ billion dollars wrapped up in these loans to people over 
  • 14+ million of these borrowers are over the age of 40, holding over $400 billion in loans

This has undoubtedly increased across the last 3 years as well, but current administration is not as interested readily exposing these numbers.

35 and paying of student loans is more of the normal now than an outlier...

I applied to both and didn't get in to MSU. Had MSU accepted me I likely would have enrolled -- coincidentally one Jim McElwain (who followed John L Smith from his previous stop at Louisville) told me he had a walk-on spot for me as a punter and I could try out as a receiver.  At the same time I was hearing from Michigan that it was highly unlikely I'd make the team, even as a walk-on.

I opted for Ball State University where i was promised a walk-on spot and tuition cost me nearly $4k/semester less

Thoughtful write up.  It was hard to feel like we weren't setting downs on fire every time in the fourth quarter running on first down. It's to see the numbers behind it and know that across the game it wasn't that bad.  Running on first down (even for only one yard) is a good way to set up play action or an read option (like the one that Shea grabbed 30 yards on that was called back).  I certainly wish we had thrown it deep on PA on one of those "set on fire" downs but we won and I'd like to never think about this game again

We were taught to prevent the receiver from catching the ball while not getting a penalty called.  Unfortunately what constitutes pi in one scenario will not be called in another, so you just try to get a feel for what you can get away with

03/26/2018 - 4:13pm it was a foul, and

it was a foul, and unfortunately by definition a flagrant.  That being said, there's no way the ref's didn't see the dude hooking Robinson's arm before hand (should have been called) that should have ended the play right then anyway.  He had to know when reviewing that there was a bad no-call that led to the flagrant
