No one…

This is not a thing.

No one places “blood filters” for arthroscopic ACL reconstruction surgery. The evidence is questionable at best regarding placement of IVC filters for patients at high risk for venous thromboembolism undergoing knee or hip replacement surgery. 

08/05/2018 - 11:33pm Yes, the kids are the real…

Yes, the kids are the real victims - Zach and Courtney Smith's kids that is - who had to watch their dad physically abuse their mother while Urban Meyer allowed him to stay on staff at OSU.

I’d probably give the edge to 16. That team had an “x-factor” in Peppers that opponents needed to account for and game plan against on defense and offense. Maybe a similar player will emerge for the 18 team, but for now it’s a relative unknown.

That felt like karma for the Poole shot. Tough loss, but I'd say we still got the better of it.

03/29/2018 - 4:01pm The better question to ask

The better question to ask would be how many of those guys benefitted or improved their stock from their time spent at MSU. The list really shrinks.

Goran Suton - came in as a prospect outside of the top 100, developed toward the end of his college career and became a second round NBA draft pick

Draymond Green - mid 4-star recruit, decommitted from UK after Tubby Smith was run out of town, developed over 4 years to become a dominant college player, first team all-american, and a second round NBA draft pick

Denzel Valentine - recruited as a prospect outside the top 100, developed over 4 years, earned NCAA POY as a senior and a first round draft pick

That's all I can come up with. So it appears that Izzo successfully "developed" 3 players to a high level of NBA potential over a 15 year period. Compare that to Beilein's growing list of unheralded recruits becoming first round early entry NBA draft selections (Burke, Hardaway, Stauskas, Levert, Wilson).

03/11/2018 - 7:55pm Wait, you are upset that

Wait, you are upset that Purdue (who we went 1-2 against) was seeded higher than us?

How could they seriously consider hiring him when he is looking at a probable show cause penalty for the Bowen recruitment?

03/05/2018 - 3:33pm Not to say that he is

Not to say that he is completely free of risk given we don’t know the pathology, but as far as his cardiac function is concerned, he basically passed an exercise stress test every day for the past 4 years.

Another win against MSU could see this team climb as high as a 4 seed. Bring on Sparty.

02/27/2018 - 11:04am That’s the role of the

That’s the role of the compliance department. They have to look for that kind of thing. If MSU compliance was able to identify and correct completely separate issue than the one discovered by the FBI probe within 24 hours, it seems unlikely that it would have eluded them for the previous 2 years if they were doing their job and looking.

It’s a poor look for a program currently under the microscope for failing to monitor their student athletes.

02/27/2018 - 9:56am To think that for the past

To think that for the past two years, the MSU compliance office failed to identify that Bridges had received illegal benefits, however, with help of the FBI identified and resolved this issue within 24 hours.

11/19/2017 - 9:12am It’s really difficult to

It’s really difficult to adequately evaluate the passing game this season given the fact that we have had to play 3 different QBs and had to replace essentially all of the receiving corps from last year (Darboh, Chesson, Butt, Asiasi). Pep and Drevno will almost certainly get another year to work the passing game out, and I️ think that maturing a lot of potential into talent will see or passing attack take on a very different look next year.

11/19/2017 - 9:04am Grant Newsome

Hopefully Grant Newsome is able to make a full recovery from his knee injury last season and return as a contributor to ease the loss of Cole at LT.

This was discussed on the wtka roundtable a week ago. Sam was hearing that they were looking at Nate Johnson for punt returns but also mentioned that Oliver Martin could get a look. There were a bunch of guys in the mix for kick returns including DPJ, Ambry Thomas, Nate Johnson, Chris Evans, etc.

Is this presumed to be the replacement for Jim Minnick? (Guy who left UM for the armed services)

07/17/2017 - 4:11pm No. It was always the plan

No. It was always the plan that Dakich would RS a year at UM to retain eligibility to grad transfer to another program for playing time in his 5th year. Everyone assumed this would mean stepping down a competition level or two. I don't think anyone thought the OSU roster would have fallen so far as to look like an appealing playing time opportunity.

Difference being that one coach made a 3 score game into a 2 score game while the other made a 4 score game into a 4 score game.

03/14/2017 - 12:30pm Precisely. The Title IX

Precisely. The Title IX investigation by the university is independent of any criminal investigation and is a completely different ballgame when it comes to burden of proof.

Furthermore, from my understanding, this incident had elements similar to, although with greater severity than, what LTT was removed from the Michigan football team for.

Chains don't matter when the possession starts on the 25. The line to gain is the 15 so if the ball touches paint a measurement is unnecessary.

Good call with less than a minute. Bad call with 4:40 on the clock. With that amount of time, you are giving OSU basically two chances to score for the win with them pushing the tempo, and you also allow them to make their play calling more aggressive in going for 4th downs. With a tie game, you can kick it deep, let your defense ball out as they had been all game, and get the ball back with better field position and more time/time outs without the pressure to need to score prior to OT. If OSU is gonna score in regulation, they are gonna win the game. By going for 2 that early, you are just giving them more opportunities.
