10/11/2015 - 2:28pm It's a side-effect of having the lead

It's not really showing you anything meaningful about a team's performance, other than the fact that they usually have the lead and can grind out the clock.

Gallon finished fourth in career receiving yards

09/15/2013 - 5:09am I'm still not sure Stave's knee actually hit the ground

It looked to me like when he went to kneel-down, he hit his lineman's leg, preventing his knee from touching the ground. He then put the ball down, and the ASU player jumped on it, thinking that it was still a live ball. I'm not sure how you can fault the guy for laying on what he thought was a loose ball. I don't believe he was doing it to intentionally prevent Wisconsin from being able to snap it, like some people are claiming. 

 

And of course, ESPN failed to show a replay of the attempted kneel. Good job, good effort, WWL.

09/01/2013 - 4:55am TV Audio

Occasionally, TVs have settings like "Virtual Surround Sound" or "Dynamic Bass Boost" or some other marketing-speak for audio features that attempt to give you a Wow Experience. These features tend to have a strange effect on volume, much like you have described. If you are using your TV's built-in speakers, I would suggest looking for any similar options in the menus and turning them off to see if it makes a difference.

How many possessions in each game? Tempo-free is the way to be.

I learned things

02/15/2013 - 6:50pm From the source...

"Strength of schedule - The components here are similar to the team components. Because we’re measuring a team’s offensive and defensive ability, we can also assess its schedule in similar terms. The Pyth is derived from these components in the same way that is for a team rating. (This is also I compute conference ratings.)"

RPI is old news. KenPom is where it's at. He has our SOS at #8. Besides, whether our SOS is #1 or 8 or 25, it really doesn't matter.

01/30/2013 - 2:12pm Come on, Adidas

Not enough piping and striping. Does anybody know if these unis also have the Hulk-style ripaway feature like the basketball jerseys have?

01/29/2013 - 2:07pm More of a leader and just a winner

So you're saying he's grittier?

 

Also, Stauskas is a freshman, so he's not expected to be a leader on a team with older, more established players. And he's got a 19-1 record thus far.

01/21/2013 - 2:22am Let me clarify

According to the Seattle Times:

"Additionally, he owns the Sonics' original championship trophy, banners and retired jerseys and is permitted to periodically display them in Oklahoma City. For most of the year, the items will be kept in Seattle at the Museum of History and Industry. Bennett agreed to return their ownership to Seattle should an NBA franchise emerge here."

 

I have a hard time believing he will just give it up that easily.

01/21/2013 - 2:19am Wrong

Clay Bennet paid a little bit extra for the Sonics, just so he could take the history with him. What a dick.

10/02/2012 - 5:56pm Sorry to burst the bubble,

but that's not the Tanooki suit. The Tanooki suit would be the full raccoon suit that allows you to turn into a statue. Now excuse me, I have to go back into my parents' basement.

08/01/2012 - 2:45am Neither did I

I figured Hugh Freeze was some kind of movie villain

07/23/2012 - 8:32pm Safeco effect

I can understand how Safeco field hurts power/flyball hitters, but that's not Ichiro. His decline cannot be blamed solely on the stadium. It's been hard to watch him the last couple years.

07/16/2012 - 12:28pm .

I thought that was discussed in the last recruiting update. IIRC, he hasn't been offered yet, but would be a potential snake-oil candidate if we needed a late DB pickup.

06/26/2012 - 2:01pm Barry

What is Barry Larkin up to these days? He always seemed to be a smart guy, and with his name recognition I'm sure he could pull in some good recruits.

If he's going to start a coaching/managing career, now seems like a good time to do it.

04/20/2012 - 6:30pm It's probably not asking too much

It's probably not asking too much for him to drop about 10 pounds before the season rolls around. That would put him around the same playing weight as Junior Hemingway. Ricardo Miller is like Junior Hemingway, but taller.

03/22/2012 - 5:04pm I'm confused...

They care about defense in the NBA?

03/21/2012 - 9:52pm I would also

I would also take Elena Delle Donne

03/14/2012 - 6:15pm First world problems, yo!

One does not simply walk into Michigan and commit when the recruting class is full in March

02/29/2012 - 12:37am Don't you think

Don't you think the fact that it was our first night game, and a rivalry game, had something to do with that? And that's not even considering what happened on the field.

02/22/2012 - 1:33am Awesome

Yes, we are just like Izzo's teams that rebound and pound you to death, but without the whole rebound and pound thing. I also agree that MSU this year is very much an MSU kinda team.

02/17/2012 - 7:05pm .

AND MY AXE!

02/17/2012 - 1:16pm Exactly

He doesn't want to play for the Tigers. Anyone still suggesting it is a delusional rosterbator. I'm not too worried about who the fifth starter is, because it really isn't that big of a deal. You can piece together a fifth starter with veteran scrap heap guys or one of the prospects and still be fine. They had Brad Penny in that slot for a full season and still made it work, fergodsakes.

02/11/2012 - 5:42pm 2008 WISCONSIN

I remember a second game too...

02/02/2012 - 2:09pm I agree

Jordan Morgan has been busting his ass out there. Him and Burke running the pick and roll has been pretty fun to watch, too.

01/28/2012 - 2:14am Holy shit!

We're a one seed right now!? Madness!

01/27/2012 - 7:30pm .

You forgot the official Corch D hashtag: #GOHUNTERGREENGOBRONZE

01/27/2012 - 7:27pm Too much gray

I am not on board with Nike trying to eliminate school colors. Plus, the gray is overwhelmingly boring. Apparently they turned the PRO COMBAT EXTREME meter down from 11 to about a 3.

01/25/2012 - 6:11pm Why?

Not sure why this would be likely. He has never played a lick of 3B during his career. At least Miggy has some experience over there.

01/25/2012 - 6:07pm Defensive ability

Defensive ability should not be judged by fielding percentage alone. Also, most of Cabrera's 3B opportunities were long ago, when he was much different physically.

01/19/2012 - 2:13am Poop joke!

I enjoyed it. Well done!

01/16/2012 - 10:07pm Point taken

I'm just messing around, not trying to be a dick. Thanks for keeping us informed!

01/16/2012 - 9:05pm How

How would you rate it on the Arnett scale? Would you BKFinest it?

01/16/2012 - 9:04pm It says

It says nothing. Even if he comes back, he only has one season left.

01/11/2012 - 3:14pm Maybe

But would he be an overall upgrade over Kovacs/Gordon immediately as a Freshman? Doubtful.

01/10/2012 - 6:59pm Also

Bob Stoops, Urban Meyer, Jon Gruden, Bill Belichick, Phil Jackson, or Earl Weaver.

01/10/2012 - 6:26pm McNutt

McNutt is gone anyway, he's a senior.

01/05/2012 - 7:07pm Seems...

Seems like he's closer to Magnuson than anyone else, so I would guess it doesn't change anything.

01/05/2012 - 5:43pm You do realize

You do realize I knew that response was coming ;)

01/05/2012 - 2:41pm Edwin Baker

Has Baker graduated? Seems to me that it would be a better idea to get your degree than to throw it away for some time on a training camp roster.

12/28/2011 - 7:21pm Yeesh

I feel sorry for the kids that have to go up against that team. Scary.
