This wasn't just words buried in an article. It was front page, above fold, top corner, with color pictures...and logos - of two teams with no right to be anywhere in the conversation about a new years day bowl game. No one caught it.
|12/15/2017 - 5:10pm||I've loved Krennic||
I've loved Krennic (especially the delivery of the character by the actor Ben Mendoelsohn) from the first time i watched hit, but didn't hit me until more recently why.
Krennic is one of the only antagonists I've seen in SW who is also struggling internally with the Empire. While he is clearly a bad dude, I find myself still rooting for him in his power struggle with Tarkin, and gasping at his audacity to tell Vader to his face "I have a great many things to attend to." Would you tell your boss that if he asked you why you were agitated about meeting with him or her? I feel his pain a little bit. I think we all do.
We'll see what becomes of Kylo Ren, but to my knowledge I've not seen a character of the Empire struggle internally inside the system to advance the way Krennic is portrayed. Vader didn't necessarily struggle within the internal structure (until the end), but he had some other, deeper identity issues going on. Krennic's identity was clear, but in his way was internal setbacks and the Imperial power structure.
|12/15/2017 - 4:35pm||Hate to say it, but I can see||
Hate to say it, but I can see your points. I still loved having a deeper dive into the questions of the original trilogy. I would love to see this happen after the latest triolgy is completed as well. I also loved, after episodes 1-3, seeing some links to the original trilogy. Maybe it was just nastalgia.
See your point about some of the other characters. We get some history of Jyn - but wouldn't have hurt to do some flashbacks for Krennic, Cassian (he mentions briefly being in it since he was 6 years old and losing everying - would it cost them to use a quick flashback?) Chirrut, etc. That would have been great, and seemingly not very hard to do.
Also love your point from above about not wanting these one offs to be just tying back to the original trilogy. Agree! Would love to see these dive into the new trilogy as well. Keep expanding the universe, I say.
|12/15/2017 - 11:48am||Never understand people who||
Never understand people who rat on Rogue One because it was "things we know" or go full-blown Roger Ebert (masterbatory fan service, embarrassing CGI...WTF?). That was the fucking point, to take an instance that was critical but barely noted in ANH and expand on it. Leaving Tarkin out of it or trying to put someone else in his character would have been embarassing - kudos to them for trying something new to allow that character to live on. Sorry you didn't get any "memorable characters" from a plot line where they are all probably supposed to die in order for ANH to still make sense. How is it a "regression of the universe" when they take us to ump-teen different places in the galaxy we had never seen before? (and how the Empire operates structurally - we see a prison, and labor camp, how they store and transmit information, the destruction they sewed to fuel the Death Star).
Personally, I hope they take every single fucking instance in the new and old trilogy and expand on it. I love the concept of seeing behind the curtain of the first trilogy and the smaller clashes in this struggle, especially when we get to see the more daily struggle some characters like Cassian deal with - even though they might not be as funny and fucking swash-buckling sweet as Han Solo. Chin up and get over it, and be thankful we have new Star Wars coming out almost yearly. What a time to be alive.
P.S. - Krennic is the best and deepest villain since Vader. Was just at Disney after T'giving and I find their lack of Krennic-centric merchandise disturbing.

Good things can also happen. Barrett - seems like a decade ago. Eason. Fromm. Rosen. Darnold. Lewerke. Hornibrook. Don't have to go far to find freshman QBs in big programs making an impact. Especially when the opening day starter is out and the O is already limited.

I get a little queasy when I hear Pep and Harbaugh continue to insist that "we felt JOK was still in a good position to execute our offense..." They saw what we saw, right?
I'm hoping it's just a combination of wanting to protect peters and JOK publicly, and some pride in not wanting to comment on their own mistakes publicly, but that in real life when they are behind the scenes they are going "hahahaha man, we fucked that one up. okay, let's move forward."
Also "yeah, glad we finally got Evans on a LB" against Rutgers makes me think of debuting and using the "Pep-cat" last year against Rutgers and Illinois so it was stale by the time we got to games where we needed a spark.

All true. For me, I'm not necessarily excited about Peters playing for this season's sake (he's still going to struggle at times and make freshman mistakes - potentially next week against a better Minnesota team), but that he's getting the game reps and situational experience for next season and beyond. Anything this season will be a bonus.

By questioning why Michigan fans were delirious after the first completed Peters pass, Dorian Miller publicly outed himself to his coaches as having not watched enough film last week. The punishment will be swift and severe.

I agree with this team being likely 8-9 wins, and I thought that from the beginning of the season mostly because of our inexperience, plus none of our returning starters are players I would put in the All American camp. That said, why in the hell is 8-9 wins with mostly freshman and sophomores something that he should be taken to task for? I understand that we should expect a lot from Harbaugh and the staff he has hired, but holy shit, what program out there sustainging these types of losses wouldn't see some sort of hit in the win-loss column?

Is Kyle Kolbe, former standout at Clare High School (veer offense at the time) and "the winningest quarterback in the history of Northwood [MI] football" (also veer offense). I remember him from summer veer football camps. Can see how he so quickly and correctly disected Air Force's response. He probably did that a time or two in his day as he was piling up the most rushing yards for a QB in GLIAC history at the time.

I'm frustrated like anyone else. Thought he had worked his tail off this off-season and would have some of the blantant mistakes behind him.
Most all of his skill guys are very young and we need him. What we don't need is a fan-led QB controversy. We are 2-0 and they need our support. I trust Wilton's work ethic and desire to improve. Most of all, I trust Jim Harbaugh.
I support Wilton Speight.
