Do you know how I can watch the game from my Learjet 31 while flying to a private resort in the Maldives?

Jonathan Taylor is scary. I honestly think Wisconsin might have won this game if they just handed it off to Taylor every single down.

The Milton thing was boneheaded. 

Otherwise, it's just poor WR routes and/or decision making by Shea.

Should be up at least 20-7. Very frustrating. Shea needs to throw the goddam ball sometimes and let our athletes make a play.

If I were a Wisconsin fan, I'd be PISSED that they're not running it with Taylor every play

Really bad call to put Milton in there. Like horribly bad.

So much for Wisconsin's secondary being bad. We can't get open with all the goddam time in the world.

Personally, I appreciate the warnings. Haven't read the freep once since 2010 and have no plans of doing so anytime soon.

The Mason touchdown run photo is great. Given his position, #18 for Maryland should be able to make that tackle short of the goal line . . . But then you remember it's Ben Mason.

Careful using our defensive performance against Maryland's run game as a predictor for how we'll do against Wisconsin's. Very different challenges. Misdirection and options versus physical pounding. I think we can match up well with Wisconsin, but I'm a little worried about how banged up our DTs and Gary seem to be.

I hope Jim is watching the NW-MSU game. When we play State, we should pass every single down. Seriously. Every down. Maybe run in the second half if we're up three scores.

10/05/2018 - 1:57pm Thanks. Darn.

Thanks. Darn.

10/05/2018 - 1:16pm Haven't really kept up with…

Haven't really kept up with recruiting this year, but I'm wondering if there's any reason to believe that Logan Brown could flip to us? Is he totally solid with Wisconsin? If we embarrass them on the field in a couple weeks, could that make a difference in his recruitment?

It's a knife in the belly to have the best player at our position of greatest need right here in state but committed elsewhere. To a school that sucks at recruiting. 

10/04/2018 - 9:46pm People seriously need to…

People seriously need to knock off the "saving the playbook" nonsense. We were on the brink of losing this game and playing from behind until the very end. You better bet your ass the coaches were doing anything and everything they could to win this game. I don't think it's too extreme to say that if Harbaugh lost this game, it would have been hot-seat time, staring down a 6-6 record with a demoralized team.

10/03/2018 - 9:13am Nothing really new if you're…

Nothing really new if you're familiar with his takes.

Claims that a big part of the team's problems are psychological: the players don't know how to win and don't truly believe that they can be great, in large part because they don't have a real "signature" win.

Also claims that Don Brown's man defense is exploitable because it demands too much of linebackers in coverage.

Finally claims that the offense is too archaic and if we turned Shea loose, he'd be just like McSorely.


10/02/2018 - 9:36am For a good example of how to…

For a good example of how to do it well, watch any MSU game against us from the past few years. They draw up some great offense to exploit our much more talented D.

09/09/2018 - 10:56am 10-3 assumes we beat at…

10-3 assumes we beat at least two of Wisconsin, MSU, Penn St, and OSU. That is optimistic to me, given the evidence before us. Not out of the question, but I think the likelihood of losing to all four is greater than beating two of this group.

Your sack statistic is misleading. There was pressure on the QB on almost every pass play.

WTF! FS1 on Sling TV doesn't have the game?! "This program is unavailable on Sling TV"

09/05/2018 - 4:55pm One thing about StubHub that…

One thing about StubHub that I learned the hard way is that there is a cutoff (I think it's two hours) before the event start time after which you can no longer purchase tickets on StubHub. A couple of years ago, I was monitoring tickets to a MLB game on StubHub with the idea that I'd buy them about an hour before the game, but I got locked out because of this cutoff. Had to pay face value at the box office at the stadium instead. Not sure if this policy still exists, but something to be maybe be aware of. 

09/03/2018 - 1:20pm If we play like we did…

If we play like we did against Notre Dame, we are losing at least five games this regular season. No way we beat OSU, PSU, Wisconsin, or MSU if our offense looks like this and if our defense continues to give up big chunk plays. Odds are we lose another games, as well. Based on the evidence from Saturday, I'd call Northwestern a toss-up and Nebraska close to it. 

There will be bridges at the end of the season, and there will be jumping off of them by the fan base.

You kind of made your own point regarding "Hongiford".

Yeah, the 2012 (Kalis, Magnuson, Bars, Braden) and 2013 (Kugler, Bosch, Dawson, Fox, Tuley-Tillman) classes were stacked at offensive line. Hoke whiffed in 2014, but overall you can't fault his OL recruiting. Both the 2012 and 2013 OL classes were better than any OL class that Harbaugh has yet to put together. From a recruiting standpoint, OL has to be considered the biggest disappointment under Harbaugh to-date. 

08/21/2018 - 11:06am Thanks for this analysis. It…

Thanks for this analysis. It should be a wake-up call to a large portion of the fan base who think we're going to make the playoff this year. I think our OL will cost us at least one or two games. The issue with the OL that's highlighted nicely here is that the best evidence suggests they're average, and there's really not a whole lot of room for improvement beyond that due to physical limitations (this year). 

Defense will be great but will inevitably have a couple of let-down games where the opponent gets into the 20s or 30s. For example, we've held Ohio State to <20 points once in the past 15 years, and they've scored >30 in 10 of those meetings. Hell, we've only held MSU to <20 three times in that same span. To win the conference, Shea and the skill position players will have to be outperform expectations and consistently so. The difference between the skill position players and OL is that there is a ton of talent among the former, so if they end up on the high end of possible outcomes, we could have the offense to capitalize on this good defense. They'll have to score 20ish points every time out and also be able to go blow-for-blow in the higher scoring games.

Wyatt Earp starring Kevin Costner is far better than Tombstone. Could never understand how anyone could prefer the latter unless you're just into sweet gunfights and jumpkicks and stuff like that.

Ah, damn. Was so hoping we'd catch fire this game. Can't afford to go 2-12 from deep here. Feels like the dam is about to break.

Don't usually resort to this, but the refs are blatantly trying to keep Loyola in this game early. Total ticky tack nonfoul calls on both of Teske's and this one, while letting go hard contact on our guys on the other end.
