I believe that is why the onside is typically hit into the ground right off the tee, to avoid a fair catch. However if the kick is just popped up it could be fair caught.

Do yourself a favor and go to Miles, Carl's, or Dicks and try some of the irons. It's free and you really can't tell which set is right for you without hitting them. As mentioned getting fitted for the shaft length and lie angles for irons is also important.

My first iron set was Adams and they were solid, for me.

42-12 Michigan and may I suggest a format to make this searchable somehow.

If you are in the A2 area, then the Plymouth Whalers pretty close and are usually fun watch. I am going to miss watching Datsyuk,

10/07/2012 - 4:36pm Yeah, tough to figure it out

Yeah, tough to figure it out right. Michigan loses to #1 Alabama and drops to 19th in poll. A couple weeks later Georgia lays a goose egg against #6 SC and falls only to 12th in poll. Both started from number 5, and a SEC team only falls half the number of spots even though the team they played was ranked 5 spots lower. At this point I guess it is who cares and hope Michigan can win the Big Ten.

Still time to push it higher!

I would like to believe it is all because Alabama is so good, but blocking does not cause one hundred billion broken arm tackles.

Maybe that SEC dominance has some other factors. Interesting article, or excerpt really, even if the writer takes some leaps on what his numbers mean in terms of others conferences.

08/13/2012 - 11:29am You are nuts, or a troll, or

You are nuts, or a troll, or a trolling nut. Stonum never played for Michigan again in the end... He got a chance to improve himself as a person and he did not play a down for Michigan again. What is tougher than that? Would you kick the players with issues out the door without trying to help them? Is that better for you? I prefer our coaches treat our players as young men who make mistakes like anyone else and can benefit for guidance and discipline.

08/13/2012 - 10:50am I think we can trust Hoke to

I think we can trust Hoke to do the right thing here. Last year he was very stern with Stonum and I don't see a track record of ignoring playing conduct issues for people to be upset about. Not defining a specific punishment or timetable is a great way to do this. Fitz has to earn it back. This method gives our coaches a way to evaluate if understands his mistakes and is making an honest effort to change. Even sitting him out for one game, two games, four games etc... Only sets a consequence, it does not necessarily provoke change in a meaningful way. I would say bravo for handling it in a way that can help improve the young man as a person. We can debate if it was enough after it is all said and done, although even then only people close the situation will probably know all details about the punishment.

08/10/2012 - 9:01am First time?

Shea gets a piece of three guys on the play prior to the referenced play as well.

07/27/2012 - 12:48am Right on, I think people

Right on, I think people close to the situation that know Ftiz and know the exact details are better judges of what the punishment should be. I will be happy to let the coaching staff be the judge of that since they are privy to the facts and the character of player. Hoke and company have not been overly light in past, and I don't see a reason to doubt the coaching staff's judgement.

07/02/2012 - 10:18am He did look slow this year,

He did look slow this year, and he had horrible puck control on the boards for a power forward. He could not keep the puck when he had it deep, and he could not take it away on defense.  I think he had some lower body injuries this year and hopefully that was the issue with the missing spring in his step.

Denard says he is hungry and ready to eat. Did anyone else notice MSU mimicing the eating after their big plays on defense last night?

They will fit tight with shoulder pads under them.

01/03/2012 - 11:44am Yeah, it seemed like the

Yeah, it seemed like the popular opinion from the analysts was VT would be motivated by the negitive media around them being selected for a BCS game. Knowing what our senior class has been through with negitive media over their entire careers I find it hard to believe we will be lacking any motivation.

It will be the NHL's decision in the end, but saying the owner of the Red Wings would have no say is probably not correct.

It was the right choice at that time in the game, it would have had tied it if they made it.

12/16/2011 - 11:24pm Montana vs Sam Houston

With about 14 minutes left in the second quarter Montana goes for on fourth and a couple inside the twenty instead of taking the FG. They end up coming up three short after a good comeback. I hated the call when they did and although some CHARTS show fourth downs are too conserative in general, that has to hurt.


12/03/2011 - 9:09pm Seems like I remember the SEC

Seems like I remember the SEC argument when we had the one an two ranked teams(OSU/UM) was they were a better conference becasue the parity and number of bowl teams.

I could not tell if it was Hawthorne or Gardner, but I imagine Hoke was trying to keep players off the field and avoid any celebration penalties with :02 on the clock still.

No secrets given, ticket prices went up by more than 2.50 already this year.

08/23/2011 - 12:31pm Love sitting in the endzone

Love sitting in the endzone between the numbers. You can really see the gaps opening up on plays which you miss from a side view. Row 30 seems about the perfect distance.


08/19/2011 - 11:41am Hopefully there will

Hopefully there will be officers to keep traffic moving. I have gone to UM vs MSU games where the lots opened at a specific time and they had officers posted at the entrances making sure lines did not form.

08/19/2011 - 9:12am Agreed, it would seem to get

Agreed, it would seem to get "tired" would take some number of plays. Certainly no defense is tired if their offense goes three and out in the first drive. Maybe a break down by quarter, or look at third / fourth quarter specifically? After x plays or drive? Of course later in the game coaching adjustments might effect the effectiveness of defensive squad unless you consider those to be a wash.

I wonder what the average number plays/time a good defense is on the field versus a bad defense.

07/13/2011 - 2:31pm Plummet

That huge drop in defensive rating between 2007 - 2008 pre -GREG should be considered. It seems like comparing the GREG ave against this non-GREG average, or even against an all-time average, would have to take that event into account.

It would be useful to see historically how fast a defense can recover after such a steep decline, and how other D coordinators have faired the two years following a similar event.

He just earned some crystal on hole two. EDIT: score reading fail, just a bird. Hopefully he can stay above the cut line today.


02/23/2011 - 9:00am Wait there is more!

Updyke has participated in one of college footballs most storied traditions.

"Barnes said Updyke is a big Alabama fan, saying Updyke ran on the field in 1970 Bluebonnet Bowl with a box of Tide detergent and toilet paper, signifying "Roll Tide."  "

If you originally paid for trend-micro you should verify if the renewal is automatic. Sometimes you have to go opt-out of renewals specifically, or they will charge your card again.

Thanks, good to know.

10/06/2010 - 12:22pm How about defensive style?

I know Indiana's pass offense may have been the reason for so many three man fronts, but don't we need these young players to be playing out of base defense more so they can improve at it? I suppose it is a little catch 22, but most of this defense will be here next year. Not playing the base defense because of one or two weak talent spots hurts the development of all the players.
