Thank you, Coach!!

11/22/2015 - 4:37pm Advacning blocked punt?

Replay shows punt blocked, but ball still behind line of scrimmage. Looks like the rules say either team can pick ball up and advance it. We did, but play appeared to blown dead.

07/08/2014 - 12:38pm my condolences

I lost my father this year.  My heart goes out to you.

Take care of yourself and those you love.

12/28/2011 - 9:23am other have had similar "injuries"

Justin Gatlin (US sprinter) suffered a similar setback last summer. 

11/27/2011 - 11:24am D-Line calls its own plays?

How long has this been happening?  In what circumstances?  Is that why there is occasionally a "mad shuffle" of D-Linemen just before the snap?

09/11/2011 - 6:15am no sleeping in the Stadium

... you could have taken a bottle of melatonin on top of a heavy dose of sleeping pills and you would have stayed awake in the Big House.  It was E-L-E-C-T-R-I-C !!!  

09/04/2011 - 1:55pm "go to" back

Interesting too:  Borges said he wanted to go with a single back, yet on some series Fitz, Shaw, and Smith all carried (I think sometimes on successive plays).  All looked good, too.

09/03/2011 - 8:26pm not worth is

They screen real estate was badly used.  Probably 40% of the screen was used for printing "Michigan Stadium" (top), block M's (side), and not enough useful stats at the bottom (score: only some time; yard line: never; stats: rarely; and voice-to-text of what the announces was saying that resembled a non-English speaker doing  transcription (often gibberish).

For what this thing costs:  picture should have been much bigger, taken with better camera angles (most were taken with extreme zoom out, making players look tiny), and use of stats should be much more carefully selected.

Big disappointment.

12/01/2010 - 2:42pm Jamal Crawford

Anyone remember Crawford getting pretty seriously slapped by the NCAA when he was taken in by a family friend who provided him shelter, food ... and a generally decent life (and safer, too, with greatly reduced risk of dying young)?  ...   Comparing that case (providing for an athlete's well-being) vs Newton's (dad profiting FROM an athlete's prowess) and the two NCAA rulings is mind-blowing.   (Messed up our BBall team pretty badly, too)

09/09/2010 - 1:44pm UFR video "popping up?" HOW?

Would like to see the video that accompanies the UFR.   Don't see a link, instrucations ...

anyone able to help?


11/22/2009 - 4:45pm Red stands out?

I was at the game. Not a noticeable difference in opposing-fan attendance than at other games. I estimated 5% "red." My friend with me estimated 4%. My wife, watching on TV, said "whole stadium" was red. Now, there were some Buck-nuts throughout the stadium, but in very small pockets, and scattered. It may be that red "stands out" in ways that darker colors (blue) do not. This was NOT a red crowd.

11/22/2009 - 12:28am over-estimating # of OSU fans

I was there. THere was "some" red. But 95% of the crowd was UM. It was absolutely a home field advantage for us. Standing and cheering the entire game. While this wasn't just the sprinkling of red you might see when Indiana visits, it wasn't really different than any other OSU games over the years or games against ND, PSU, or MSU. Yeah, some of their fans were here. But WAAAY more of ours. (And by the way. I've been to Columbus. They sell us tix, too).

11/21/2009 - 4:04pm Close, even with so much against us

Minor didn't play. Carlos Brown and Martavious Odoms barely played. 25 turnovers, or so it seemed. Fumble for a touchdown, miss a field goal ... and I still thought we had a good shot to win until the last Forcier interception. There is a a lot of talent on this team ... Rod & Co will develop it.

10/04/2009 - 10:25pm Math is right ...

... if things are statistically independent. That means that if you miss the first 2-pointer, the odds don't change (i.e., they don't get worse, due to a more desperate situation) for the second one.

10/03/2009 - 5:25pm fake punt ... on Zoltan

RR said it was Z's read and decision during his post game press conf.

09/26/2009 - 7:49pm Good video showing call was correct

Take a look at this from a good angle:…

09/19/2009 - 9:58pm ditto

Have watched the replays many other times ... no problems. Today, just one screen.

09/18/2009 - 8:17pm punish the refs?

So, will the Commish punish them for not calling something? If not, isn't this hypocrisy?

09/15/2009 - 6:31pm KEEP Tressel!

if Doc Saturday is right, then Tressel remaining at OSU is to our GREAT ADVANTAGE. I can't see the things that Doc Sat does -- but if he's even half right, we are golden!

09/15/2009 - 6:28pm *KEEP* Tressel ...

09/13/2009 - 1:46pm Last play ... correct

Knee down, IN BOUNDS. Ball squirts out. So what? Clock keeps running! We win.

09/13/2009 - 8:42am loud ... and liked

one of the loudest games I've been to (20+ yrs attending).
Players say THEY like it, too:…
