How else would anyone take that job?

10/17/2018 - 5:20pm That will be tough. Bosa and…

That will be tough. Bosa and Oliver are ahead of him just on the DL. 

10/17/2018 - 5:10pm I mean, you could just solve…

I mean, you could just solve this by paying them. Then you could withhold salary if you felt that way. Legally speaking, college athletes aren't getting a scholarship to perform a service. This is the reason they aren't taxable. (I didn't make that rule.) You would have a hard time withholding a scholarship on ground of a breach when no obligation existed in the first place.

10/17/2018 - 5:04pm With a current first round…

With a current first round grade, there isn't any reason from his perspective to come back quickly and play at less than 100%. I don't think the Bosa route is going to be common, but the safe 1st round guys probably will handle things that way.

So the problem with choosing not to play sports while injured to protect your long term health is....???

10/17/2018 - 4:55pm It will be interesting to…

It will be interesting to see where Gary gets drafted if he decides to sit out. Is he maybe the third DL taken behind Bosa and Ed Oliver? Maybe a Clemson or Alabama guy that I am missing? 

10/14/2018 - 3:00pm Honest question, who is…

Honest question, who is responsible for coaching the kicker? Maybe its an analyst? If there is a consistent technique issue, we should be able to fix it.

10/14/2018 - 2:59pm  The form is definitely off,…

 The form is definitely off, but I feel like his recruitment built up ridiculous expectations as well. Keep in mind that Kenny Allen once dorfed 3 kicks against Wisco in a close game and everyone seemed to be okay with him after a week. TBH, Quinn went 3 of 4 on kicks that weren't 54 yards, and you can get too bent about missing a 54 yarder.

Night game in September at 60 degrees = acceptable

Night game in mid October with a sub 40 deg low= hard pass.

10/11/2018 - 9:23pm Complaining about people…

Complaining about people standing at a sporting event is like complaining water is wet. An OSU game too.

What did you expect?

10/08/2018 - 12:44pm If you watch pre snap, he is…

If you watch pre snap, he is actually lining up in the wrong spot (right next Bush), then Bush pushes him closer to where he is supposed to be. Both Bush and Gil immediately run to the play. Gil gets there first because he is in Bush's way. More luck than skill there.

Revolutions is great. Mike Duncan's dry sense of humor makes him the Brian Cook of history podcasters. History of Rome was another gem.

My hatred for Buckeye Dan Capron is not assuaged.

09/28/2018 - 12:48pm I didn't expect to see this…

I didn't expect to see this here. 

Also, as a CPA, I am shocked he didn't take the 2 year ban as a settlement. The law and the facts of the matter are absolutely not in dispute. You can't lie and swing your market cap by $5 billion and not expect consequences.

09/22/2018 - 7:26pm Go Hoosiers.

Go Hoosiers.

09/22/2018 - 6:48pm To be fair, last weeks refs…

To be fair, last weeks refs were Sun Belt quality and once we got halfway through the second quarter, pity reffing took over.

09/22/2018 - 6:29pm It wasn't even "Marcellus"…

It wasn't even "Marcellus". Dude needs to brush up on his pre-Imperial Roman history.

09/09/2018 - 8:29am Illinois has the longest P5…

Illinois has the longest P5 streak of no bowls or NCAA tournament appearances, so they are a pretty strong contender. Its them or Rutgers.

09/08/2018 - 9:26pm I thought we had figured out…

I thought we had figured out by this point that it can ALWAYS get worse.

09/08/2018 - 7:05pm I was also there. Definitely…

I was also there. Definitely blue.

09/08/2018 - 7:04pm In addition to DPJs fumble…

In addition to DPJs fumble it looked like he kind of fought the first fair catch. He makes me nervous every time his is back there.

It's a BAAAD season for negs to not have consequences.

09/05/2018 - 9:27am 1. Discover an NCAA loophole…

1. Discover an NCAA loophole that allows us to bring back Taylor Lewan and Mason Cole.

2. Absent that, Hudson needs to play against some of the lesser competition so we can figure out if he can handle it. With the new redshirt rule Mayfield probably needs some run as well. I am NOT saying this will fix our problems or even be an upgrade in the near term, but we need to figure out NOW what the best option will be from mid October on. 

3. Stop running 5 wide, we are going to kill 3 quarterbacks the way we protect in that situation.

4. Bring back Mgoblog negging in a way that matters so that anyone blaming Shea for this mess can be sent to Bolivia.

Its significant because it a season and a half of football.....

09/04/2018 - 9:44pm I haven't thrown in the…

I haven't thrown in the towel on this year yet, but this is a poor post. 0-17 doesn't care how we 'feel'....obviously.

09/04/2018 - 9:42pm Even if it isn't his fault…

Even though it isn't his fault personally, it is definitely the fault of that position. This post is bad.

09/03/2018 - 3:57pm What pocket? There were 21…

What pocket? There were 21 pressures on 42 drop backs. 15 came from the edge.Most of the non-pressures were quick short routes. Was it Shea's fault that we averaged under 4 ypc too?

09/03/2018 - 3:13pm Twitter Fans: Play calling…

Twitter Fans: Play calling is too conservative

Me: If we keep going 5 wide Shea is going to get killed. 

09/03/2018 - 2:02pm Odds on how long Berkley…

Odds on how long Berkley stays on the team after this? lol. jk (maybe)

09/03/2018 - 1:59pm If you think Shea was the…

If you think Shea was the problem in the last game, you are the problem with the fan base. 66% completions under constant pressure, sacks killing drives deep in ND territory, dropped TD by Gentry, dropped FG snap by Hart, no run game. Last years QB would have gotten us shutout on that side of the ball.

TL;DR : Urban lies about lying

Larry Culpepper seems to be dead..........rest in eternal torment Larry.

As if being negged really means something right now. 

08/23/2018 - 4:53pm No, the B1G is worse. Not…

No, the B1G is worse. Not even close. The SEC allegedly cheats by paying players for services. The B1G is morally bankrupt. Coaches and staff abusing athletes is not the same as paying athelets.

To be fair, its not like our politicians were at the forefront of the MSU thing. The Gov has the power to can the MSU Board of Accomplices, but I am stuck having to vote again those clowns for the next 4 election cycles.

Durkin was a DC so his WR coaching skills are probably even with Zach Smith.

Was this still a question? Yes.

Chalk it up as year 4 of a 'competition' probably ending the way everyone expected it to since at least spring.

New compliance department program to ensure all helmets are GPS tracked and shoes are inventoried.

"much older with them, vs say, the Stanford years..."

So he looks older than he did between 8 and 11 years ago.....hmmm.

08/12/2018 - 8:42pm Are you saying him yelling…

Are you saying him yelling wouldn't have made JOK more accurate? Blasphemy!

08/10/2018 - 1:30pm This isn't new and it isn't…

This isn't new and it isn't exclusive to Comcast. Somebody needs to push back against the Sith Lord Jim Delany and his push to screw me out of every last penny. We need this to happen at least occasionally as part of market balance.

08/10/2018 - 1:25pm I really don't see Comcast…

I really don't see Comcast as the only evil in this situation. If they don't play hardball, TV prices will continue to be insane. My PS Vue has gone up $10 in the past year (25%) and I can't get Youtube TV because my user name checks out. Neither BTN or Comcast is innocent.

08/10/2018 - 1:19pm The key to negotiating with…

The key to negotiating with them is to have to other offers from competitors handy. Yesterday Comcast's best deal for me was 25 mbps+ HBO for $80 until I brought up an ATT offer and now I have 60mbps (its just me and I dont game) + HBO+ Cinemax for $50 after taxes.

My parents are paying $100 for some slow ass internet that can't stream HD plus there wall phone. I looked and Spectrum would give them TV+100 mbps + phone for $90 plus taxes. Loyalty doesn't matter here, you need to go to war for a reasonable choice. These guys are the used car salesmen of utilities.

6-0? Hmm, Apparently Urb forgot the 2008 Citrus Bowl too.

07/26/2018 - 10:40pm Well, if you were wondering…

Well, if you were wondering why nobody shows up to games I have a theory about that. We had a terrible home slate last year. Tons of dog games in the non conference and no MSU home game.

Is being waterboarded with cat piss better or worse than being sent to Bolivia?

07/12/2018 - 6:18pm I was raised in Allegan…

I was raised in Allegan County and the idea  that it is an OSU exclave is a laughable fiction. It slightly favors M over MSU. I don't know ANY OSU fans from home.

Um its not the anything of July.
