He is an excellent Olympic Sports director.

11/15/2018 - 11:36am Disagree. We are talking…

Disagree. We are talking about IU, not their opponent. Who cares about their opponent? It's IU week.

Who? I'm focused on Indiana this week.

11/13/2018 - 3:11pm Dude was in our bed…

Dude was in our bed thrashing at 2am because he was popping a tooth. His little head jerked back into the place that made him, and dad was down for the count.

11/13/2018 - 1:38pm Correct. Blackshear is a…

Correct. Blackshear is a major speed threat and Hawkins is late on his his switch call so he's frantically trying to let Kinnel know he's got to get to Blackshear.

I think I saw it once more. My rewatch of the game wasn't as deep as it usually is, and I didn't rewatch the last bit of garbage time.

11/12/2018 - 1:32pm I apologize. I'll do better.

I apologize. I'll do better.

11/10/2018 - 9:20pm Naturally.

Naturally.

We dutifully set up the camera facing Brian every week and every week he moves it

turned it WAAAAAY down this time. Also changed our setup a bit.

11/09/2018 - 12:27pm They do. Their kicker is 8…

They do. Their kicker is 8/10 and can hit from 50+ and they have a very good aussie punter. Blackshear returns punts and their kick returner is that 3rd RB/athlete.

11/09/2018 - 12:13pm Sorry I lost track of the…

Sorry I lost track of the tickets. I have been crazy busy and the kids have been home. They're literally shouting right now.

11/09/2018 - 11:49am Long enough that I was…

Long enough that I was worried Slack had deleted the conversation for being too long ago.

11/09/2018 - 10:21am lol he is not Adam Biggers…

lol he is not Adam Biggers. VERRRRY different people. 

11/09/2018 - 10:19am Yes but I saw it before I…

Yes but I saw it before I saw your note.

Not a diary

11/08/2018 - 2:18pm I'm sorry it was the best I…

I'm sorry it was the best I could do without resorting to Texas State film or running back passes. Seriously this is Rutgers's best day on offense.

We can't figure out why they work on our staging site but not when we push them. Been several weeks in a row we've tried.

It's politics now but soon it will just be a Friday night drinking thread.

11/05/2018 - 11:43am Good find. I bet someone got…

Good find. I bet someone got major hosed by this to get it changed. Because otherwise every time you could draw a penalty (which happens often considering there are defensive players trying to block a play that could go either side of them and lots of opportunities for a block in the back) on an interception you could then grab the nearest guy's facemask and trigger and offsetting penalty to get the ball back.

11/05/2018 - 10:20am What year did you ski? I…

What years did you ski? I skiied for Groves 1995-'98, captain in '98. Brighton League so we didn't compete very well at states or even regionals.

11/05/2018 - 10:15am Said it wrong the whole time…

Said it wrong the whole time on the pod and I was making fun of that. Shoulda put in quotes.

11/05/2018 - 9:33am That's a Google Play issue…

That's a Google Play issue with all Podbean pods. I don't understand it except maybe Google wants podcasters to switch to their platform.

11/05/2018 - 9:23am It did.

It did.

11/05/2018 - 9:22am I agree that regent should…

I agree that regent should not be a partisan position, but not on your characterization of Acker, since most of his career since graduation has been in public service. I think if he hadn't gotten sick and needed UMHS to save his life a couple of years ago he'd be running for U.S. Congress and most likely winning a seat. As with many other regents, Michigan is really profiting here off the fact that some of the best would-be candidates for higher offices would rather pursue normal careers and serve the university.

I also think you're vastly underestimating how many young attorneys work in personal injury. Might as well complain that too many bloggers are former message board posters.

11/05/2018 - 8:56am I'm disappointed this wasn't…

I'm disappointed this wasn't a podcast about politics.

11/05/2018 - 8:42am point well taken.

point well taken.

11/05/2018 - 8:02am I'm working on it now man. I…

I'm working on it now man. I was up till 2am with the other one. Please be patient; I do have to, you know, sleep.

11/03/2018 - 8:45am Yeah he's going to the NFL…

Yeah he's going to the NFL. Not an insider take, just an obvious one.

I added a bit from the Youtube version because I don't have the rest. It sounds not great.

11/02/2018 - 9:03pm I have been told that the…

I have been told that the end of the podcast cut off. I am on my way home and will try to fix it when I get there

had an audio issue today I had to fix by removing our soundgate.

11/02/2018 - 11:33am Eh. It was a placeholder…

Eh. It was a placeholder anyway while I searched our 2016 archives for shots of guys who played then. Finally found the right one.

11/02/2018 - 11:20am Isn't it? I thought that was…

Isn't it? I thought that was from his INT.

11/02/2018 - 11:03am Ah, it was 2016 Reid was…

Ah, it was 2016 Reid was ahead of those guys.

11/02/2018 - 11:00am Thanks! I'll make some…

Thanks! I'll make some corrections but I'm sticking by my analysis of the LBs, particularly Johnson. They're having him charge at any run action because his reads are too slow--when he's asked to do something complicated he gets caught in the wash, and when a lineman got to him he got blocked. I've certainly seen worse linebackers but to my eyes that was the spot Penn State was trying to cover up by playing unsound.

I thought Reid wasn't hurt until later last year (he was on my 2017 chart) but you're correct and I'll fix that. It was Christian Campbell who started all last year over Oruwariye, who was credited on PSU's website with zero starts last year.

She's cooler about it now that my football habit bought her a house.

Cover 1 is basically man to man with a high safety (the 1) who can cover for any mishaps in the run and give help against posts.

cov1.JPG

Cover 2 is your standard split-the-field zone defense. Everybody is facing the quarterback, everybody has an area they have to cover, and you carry anyone who enters your zone until he enters the next zone and the guy playing that zone can pick him up.

That is STILL our best shirt. Needs some updates:

Since when's a helmet offsides

Our linebackers were all injured

Our ends all retired

 

10/26/2018 - 10:04am Yes. 

Yes. 

10/25/2018 - 10:41pm Can't reference specific…

Can't reference specific players or else we would have so many shirts.

10/25/2018 - 2:56pm Ah, meant backside G and C…

Ah, meant backside G and C. Typo.

I think you might have been one of the few people who read a draft version that appeared for several minutes yesterday because we had a cache issue on the site that set every single article back to the version that was uploaded first. In a much earlier draft I drew it up with the defense in an under formation and that paragraph Was edited

We discussed the basketball Rutger, where you scored the winning points in the first half. However I can only find one instance of this happening. It was of course Rutgers versus Purdue a few years back

 

10/24/2018 - 7:35pm 1. Not following. This play…

1. Not following. This play attacks the backside. If they're reading the backside DE they're doubling the backside DT (the nose). The frontside (RG, RT, TE) is window dressing.

2. Just how I learned it. When I make those scheme-only diagrams for offense I will flip it to put the O on the bottom, but when I draw up a real event I keep the O on top always.

I do in fact have a maize laser. Only get to take it out once a year now. We leave it at my friend's Cottage on Lime Lake

Mike Tressel is his DC. And their former OC is on staff as a recruiting dude. Dantonio's program at State is an heir to Tressel more than any other program. They still have a very strong network in Ohio. 

10/24/2018 - 7:31am And Conklin, who is now one…

And Conklin, who is now one of the better left tackles in the NFL. The eldest Allen. And a host of defensive backs who were otherwise headed to Wisconsin or the Georgia penal league.

New accounts have to get to a certain point threshold before they can vote. The mods can see  a page  that shows the new accounts, and often block a new user if their first couple of posts are overly negative or causing disruption in a thread.

Umbig11 is legit, or at least I know who he is and why he has his access, and that he holds back much of what he hears. He's not going to be scared away by some skeptics.
