02/06/2016 - 10:20pm You know it's a strong

You know it's a strong recruiting class when over half the players are mentioned as favorites or potential standouts.

That second song is stuck in my head.

07/28/2013 - 1:04pm So you also ran a 4.48 40 and

So you also ran a 4.48 40 and won the MVP at the Best of the Midwest Combine? 

06/19/2013 - 1:04pm I think the kid gets there if

I think the kid gets there if he keeps his good attitude and continues to work hard.  He has so many natural gifts for an offensive lineman.

06/18/2013 - 3:00pm Anyone named Tom is named

Anyone named Tom is named after Tom Harmon?  I wouldn't "doubt" it.

06/15/2013 - 8:30pm Bama likes physical corners,

Bama likes physical corners, so the offer makes sense.  I doubt it will happen because the kid and his father kept mentioning depth chart as a big reason they liked Ohio over Michigan.  If they are scared of competition, then Bama is the last place to go.

If he's got his mind set on the NFL, then Bama would be a better choice.

Instead of "Overrated" I wish there was an "Are You Serious?" option.

06/13/2013 - 8:30pm One of them might slide to

One of them might slide to right tackle...or with Shane that might be left tackle.

06/06/2013 - 3:05pm Yep, the original was the

Yep, the original was the best.  Even the name was better: North Stars.  Too bad the franchise had to relocate.

05/15/2013 - 11:48am I can't stay in the car for

I can't stay in the car for 11 days, so maybe I'll just buy a belt with a selt belt latch. 

05/15/2013 - 12:22am They must be assuming a class

They must be assuming a class much bigger than 15.

03/13/2013 - 1:12pm His dad did a nice job

His dad did a nice job addressing the negative feedback coming from State fans and explaining how they support Drake.  Too bad all recruits don't have parents like that.

03/13/2013 - 10:49am I'm just thankful for the

I'm just thankful for the person who invented Spring football.

10/05/2010 - 12:01pm MSU

MSU, because we need the momentum and confidence for all the other games before OSU.

09/25/2010 - 4:45pm One more thing...

It's not only the fumbles and kicks he shouldn't return, but other punts that he could have caught that roll for another 15 yards.  

Gallon is getting reps at the slot, so it's not like he would be completely benched.

09/03/2010 - 4:40pm Better question...

...why does Lynn Henning write at all?  He's equally terrible at all sports.  Maybe he could write movie reviews instead.

09/03/2010 - 11:48am Training Program

He must use the same training program as Carlos Guillen.

05/24/2010 - 1:37pm Sanctions

Here's some of the sanctions they are considering:

1.  No Fresca or Mountain Dew at the training table.
2.  Limit of only 3 players that can wear dreadlocks
3.  Marching band prohibited from playing any Broadway show tunes
4.  Must fly a banner over stadium saying "OSU is our Daddy"
5.  Defense can only use 10 players on 3rd down...shouldn't make a difference.
6.  RRod has to wear a sweater vest at all home games.
 
I can live with any of them except #4.

 

11/14/2009 - 4:59pm Improving

The offense has improved, but sometimes the play calling hinders its effectiveness. I can't stand that stupid QB power sweep where they use Forcier as a pure running back. It's usually 3rd or 4th and short and it never works.

As for the defensive back 7...hope next year is better.

11/10/2009 - 2:46pm DRob

He was a big time recruit and wanted by Florida, but not to play QB.

DG's passing in that last game was not great. He still has a lot of work to do on his mechanics and accuracy. Redshirt.

10/25/2009 - 5:55pm Beilein is a good talent

Beilein is a good talent evaluator, but it doesn't mean he will be right on every kid. I hope Cronin turns out to be a solid player, but from what I've seen so far, he has a long way to go.

10/19/2009 - 8:05pm I think it's part of his

I think it's part of his physical therapy...not sure if anything prescribed by his doctor can be penalized.

10/19/2009 - 8:03pm He's built like Calvin

He's built like Calvin Johnson with maybe even better speed. If he can go up and catch a ball like Calvin, then yes, he should switch to receiver. He certainly will never be a 2nd overall pick as a QB, no matter how much he improves.

10/18/2009 - 9:58am #3

The Coner!

10/10/2009 - 2:58pm Mulled wine, heavy on the

Mulled wine, heavy on the cinnamon and light on the cloves.

10/07/2009 - 8:14pm PSU

Penn State has been on a recruiting roll. JoePa is year to year, so what's the big draw? Facilities, the campus, location, gameday atmosphere, persuasive assistant coaches????

10/07/2009 - 9:34am Maybe it's a difference in

Maybe it's a difference in personality and how much they enjoyed their time at Michigan. Some people love to stay in contact while others are never heard from again. I moved away, so getting back after my playing days was difficult.

10/06/2009 - 10:01pm Charles Woodson was another

Charles Woodson was another really good freshman.

10/05/2009 - 1:01pm The only silver lining I saw

The only silver lining I saw was having Tate Forcier if we are down by one score and need a 91 yard drive.

10/05/2009 - 12:47pm Regardless of his tie color,

Regardless of his tie color, I enjoyed Desmond much more as a player than as a talking head.

10/03/2009 - 7:50pm They were too busy showing

They were too busy showing Clausen celebrate. If it was Golden Tate injured, they would have held a candle-light vigil.

10/03/2009 - 7:46pm Why do I feel OK?

Alcohol.

10/03/2009 - 4:58pm Agreed. Tate needed some

Agreed. Tate needed some oxygen, he looked spent after the TD.

10/03/2009 - 4:49pm They should have let him

They should have let him throw the ball before 3rd down...it sure worked during the last two drives.

10/03/2009 - 4:47pm Schemes

Our best scheme is letting Tate run around with the ball before finding a receiver downfield. If he gets hurt, good-bye offense.

10/03/2009 - 4:43pm It was better than his play

It was better than his play calling in overtime.

10/03/2009 - 4:40pm I was OK with giving Denard

I'm OK with giving Denard some snaps in the first half. I'm also surprised at his lack of elusiveness in the pocket. Tate needs to give him some pointers.

10/03/2009 - 3:27pm Why McGee?

We couldn't run the ball all day, yet in overtime Calvin decides to call two read options in a row. What, the success from throwing the ball for two consecutive touchdowns was too boring? What an idiot!

10/03/2009 - 10:43am I'm guessing a $20MM contract

I'm guessing a $20MM contract will change his mind.

10/02/2009 - 9:52pm Those two high school teams

Those two high school teams are something else. Even the water boys have a couple D1 scholarship offers.

10/02/2009 - 12:10pm Sparty Jokes

Did you hear that Mark Dantonio is only dressing 10 players for the Michigan game? The rest of the team can get dressed by themselves.

Q: How many MSU freshmen does it take to change a light bulb?

A: None. That's a sophomore course.

Q: What does the average Spartan football player get on his SAT?

A: Drool.

10/02/2009 - 11:44am The Book

"The Book"...he's more like a sticky note.

10/02/2009 - 8:33am I wouldn't be surprised if

I wouldn't be surprised if the betting volume is lower for this game. There are so many variables heading into this game. First road game for the freshman QBs, UM's defense vs a power running team, will a State QB show up, can State handle the spread? I would think there are several other games that would be easier to pick.

10/01/2009 - 3:01pm If it was intentional, they

If it was intentional, they would have written about the SEC.

09/30/2009 - 4:11pm The worst part about Caputo

The worst part about Caputo is he's arrogant at the same time. He really believes he has the upper hand on most issues.

09/30/2009 - 9:07am 91

For tripping Desmond Howard on that two point conversion.

09/29/2009 - 9:45pm Shake N Drake

I really think RR might have landed a gem in Tony Drake. He's playing against good competition and still piling up big yards. He's very elusive and seems to just blow by people when he sees daylight. Can't wait to see him play in the Big House.

09/29/2009 - 5:10pm Shot-putted

I was struggling to describe his throwing motion on shorter passes and you nailed it. If he can improve his throwing motion, his velocity and accuracy will both be much better. Good looking athlete.

09/29/2009 - 4:59pm Don't be messing with Pam

Don't be messing with Pam Ward unless Barwis has your back.

09/28/2009 - 5:07pm If healthy, Minor. He gets

If healthy, Minor. He gets so many yards after contact.

09/28/2009 - 4:55pm He seems to have everything

He seems to have everything to be a very good DB except speed. Give the kid 4.4 speed and he'd probably be playing on Sundays in the future.
