My first favorite was Mark Messner. He was always making plays in the backfield, it seemed. Tony Boles and Jaime Morris were my favorite running backs. Nobody hit the sideline and floated like Boles.

Woodson was absolutely special. I’ve never seen anything like that on a football field. He had his most amazing moments when they were most greatly needed and then kept on making them happen every game

Meanwhile, off the court, after leaving Duke in 2000, one-and-done star Corey Maggette admitted to accepting thousands of dollars from summer-league coach Myron Piggie. The NCAA not only didn’t strip Duke of its Final Four appearance despite the freshman’s presumed ineligibility as a result, they didn’t punish the university in any way. In 2003, point guard Chris Duhon’s mother was revealed to have been given a job working for a Duke booster that was never posted and for which she was unqualified and overpaid, and star forward Carlos Boozer’s father earned a job at a company run by close friend of Coach K only to be laid off just six months after his son left the university for the NBA in 2002. The league’s response? Silence.

02/01/2018 - 6:13pm One can hope

Obviously you’re joking about 9-4 but the rest of your post makes sense to me. Experience really is going to be the best thing for this team. Not only due to the maturing youth of the team but the familiarity with the playbook.

This interview with Speight references a new playbook and “some” new terminology before the last spring game.

One would assume that year two would be past any issues with that installation. Maybe some people with experience can shed some light on learning a new playbook?

01/21/2018 - 12:17pm Whatever

This is the trashiest form of bait. Lead with a personal attack and follow up with a half-baked explanation.

There is nothing in the 17+ years since the event that indicates any sort of Russian involvement in the theories that are offered as alternative explanations.

That nations meddle in each other’s affairs is an afterthought to those who study international affairs. Obviously this happens, but to show so clearly a recency bias to the Russian situation lends truth to the idea that you are likely unable to offer anything that resembles real analysis

01/21/2018 - 11:10am Cmon

Of all the bullshit reasons to blame Russia this one takes the cake

12/17/2017 - 3:26pm Yes

As of right now yes. The NFC south has a stranglehold on both the wildcard spots. New Orleans leads the division and Carolina and Atlanta are right there. Seattle is also in front of us. The problem also is Green Bay could pass us if if they win out

From a developmental standpoint putting him deep and letting him be the safety valve may be the best way to get him on the field. His coordinator has a history of putting his safeties in the pro bowl and he obviously doesn’t yet have the experience at the position. It probably should take him a season or two in order to get where he needs to be

Since Filiaga, Stueber, and Honigford are just now on campus getting ready to begin their first college practices they could be waiting to see what they have on the roster before making that kind of decision. If they already have a few projects they may not want another, intriguing as he is.

03/12/2017 - 2:24pm Get the band back together

Round 1 - Peppers 

Round 2 - Lewis

Round 3 - Darboh

Round 4 - Glasgow

Round 5 - Hill

Round 6 - Stribling

Round 7 - Smith

 

In all seriousness I think they need LBs pretty badly. Coverage was bad last year and now Rodgers has two new pass catching TEs to worry about. No Levy leaves us with a thin roster of LBs who can play at all, let alone cover.

Definitely payback. The game in '91 was the first big match up that I attended and Terrell Buckley ruined it.

He just said that his team was overworked and worn out when they lost to OSU in '14 due to the team schedule at the time. That they learned to give the players more time leading up to the playoffs. 

Apparently, I needed a reminder of how much I don't like Bama. Thanks, Nick!

Looks like it's not being re-aired. ESPN is showing the Wisconsin-Nebraska game late, ESPN 2 is showing tennis, and ESPN U is showing Clemson-FSU then the OSU-NW game. This is on my PSVue service so I guess it could be different per service or region

10/11/2016 - 4:20pm I'll be a monkey's uncle

I didn't believe you but upon further review, he did indeed play DT late in the 4th. Kudos to you for paying attention that long. The game was background noise to me at that point as I had a wicked head cold. I was sure that you just confused him for Dwumfor or Onwenu, but nope. 

However, that doesn't really bode well for his ability to see meaningful playing time. 

10/11/2016 - 11:41am No kids, never married

My sports zealotry took a nose dive in my 30's (right with my T levels, amirite?). I still love all things Michigan and follow my Detroit teams with a furious f5 rate but I've passed peak fandom while pursuing other life goals. 

10/11/2016 - 11:30am Devil's Advocate

From the perspective of looking at transfers seeking playing time, David Dawson will be going into his fifth year without seeing significant time on the field. This is pure speculation but if a true freshman comes in and beats him onto the two deep, or moves him off of it, then he would at least seem to be a candidate.

We've already seen that he isn't the 6th or 7th, maybe not even the 8th OL this year but depth would seem to indicate that he will at least be offered a 5th year.

There is also the Switzer Sweep (after Barry Switzer) which is a national title, #1 recruiting class AND the fulmer cup.

Yes, you can record. It's cloud based and saves 'my shows' for 28 days. I've heard that there is a 500gb limit but can't confirm. The controls (I'm using the ps4 controller) allow for x4, x8, x16, and x32 speed fast forward and rewind.

The dvr isn't perfect. You can't adjust recording time, like adding time, for an event so I don't know yet if it will record a whole game or cut it off at the appointed time

I signed up for sling to get a discounted roku 3 last year. I cancelled after 6 months because it's was poorly executed. It was choppy and cut out pretty often and I pay for better internet (50 down).

Two weeks ago I signed up for Vue and its definitely better. Better interface, better stream, and better value (especially with a dvr). However, if you don't have a ps4 then you're not getting the best interface available. I have a PS3 in addition to the roku and ps4. Oh and the mobile app is better too

08/14/2016 - 6:46pm The Year of the Position Battle

For DL I've got Gary, Mone, Hurst (assuming he stays), and Marshall penciled in as the starters (cackles). Kemp seems the most physically ready to play in a rotation but that's a ways away. A lot can happen. 

Battles to watch are on the right side of the OL, WR, DL rotation, LB rotation, and all of the secondary (as of this writing). 

With so many position battles we'll naturally see some players surprise and some disappoint. With such a young team it's not ideal that we start off with Florida. I'd rather have a few softer games to find out who are the Dudes and the Guys

08/07/2016 - 2:24pm 245ish

His recruiting profile lists him at 245. I remember him getting up to the 260 area, although that may have been as a young pro.
