Or we could just pick divisions that aren't dumb. Even a North/South split is far more even than East/West

North: M, MSU, Minn, Wisc, Rutgers, Iowa, NW

South: OSU, PSU, Nebraska, Indiana, Purdue, Illinois,  Maryland

12/05/2018 - 3:59pm If Teske gets in trouble,…

If Teske gets in trouble, Livers should play 5. He can at least pose some problems for Ward in terms of making him guard the whole floor and is only 10 lbs lighter and 1" shorter than Ward.

12/05/2018 - 3:55pm There is a world of…

There is a world of difference between shooting 30% and 22%. My take is that Zavier gets two chances to make one and gets shut off if one doesn't go. Can't light possessions on fire. 

12/05/2018 - 11:58am The BPI must have been a…

The BPI must have been a work of genius to predict that we would have to get extensive minutes from the backup center. I mean, we were plus 17 with Teske and Livers at 5. Good call by BPI

If you think S Car and NW are going to be tough, we obviously have no chance against N Car, Villanova and Purdue right? Get a grip. 

11/28/2018 - 11:49pm I love the defensive…

I love the defensive intensity and hopefully the shooting performance is a sign of lasting improvement. Also, a big shout out to the crowd for making it tough on UNC. Crisler was straight up hostile.

I don't want Marcus to accidentally eat Brian.

11/01/2018 - 12:03pm Big time disagree. Jake's…

Big time disagree. Jake's calls are a pointless ramble. I could also do with limiting Dennis from the OC's Ufer impressions to once a year at most.

Avoiding the political implications of your question, only the governor has the power to remove the BoT for misconduct. There is no legislative process for doing so.

Curse of Marcus Ray in full effect.

Except that, you know, real human beings have to deal with this stupidity.

10/27/2018 - 11:33am The irony is incredible.

The irony is incredible.

I wonder what the fine for this will be.

10/25/2018 - 3:43pm You forgot the part where…

You forgot the part where Brian is no longer calling him "Karen" on the podcast. That takes the cake.

10/25/2018 - 3:37pm Can't argue with a…

Can't argue with a logarithmic scale that shows just how shaky a team can get.

10/25/2018 - 9:24am That should be the fine for…

That should be the fine for putting this in the diary section.

10/24/2018 - 12:39pm I would quit school for $20…

I would quit school for $20 million as well. Where does that line start?

10/24/2018 - 12:32pm I am not sure why you are…

I am not sure why you are bagging on 3rd WRs for having ten catches when we pass the ball between 15 and 25 times a game and are more likely to play two tight ends than three receivers. The biggest plus to Black is that he is more of a deep threat than Nico and a better route runner than DPJ. Both of those guys have played reasonably well, but there is a higher ceiling on the pass game than what we have seen so far. Black's return allows you to go power spread while keeping multiple deep threats on the field.

10/23/2018 - 3:54pm So I watched MSU play last…

So I watched MSU play last week and ......no, no they will not.

10/23/2018 - 3:45pm If you are going to root for…

If you are going to root for any team to lose, why not Clemson? With their crap schedule they would move to the back of the line with one loss. Plus nobody really wants to see them play Alabama again.

10/22/2018 - 8:19pm Harbaugh has a bye week. I…

Harbaugh has a bye week. I want him to keep bashing MSU to mess with them, because they have a game.

Burn the village, take no prisoners.

10/21/2018 - 3:05pm My only quibbles are that we…

My only quibbles are that we didn't go for on it that 4th and 5 from the 38 and we should have thrown more deep passes. Overall a plus performance, and I feel we aren't close to a ceiling in the passing game.

10/20/2018 - 5:45pm It was effectively a shutout…

It was effectively a shutout. Their only score was off the fumble in the red zone.

10/17/2018 - 5:32pm How else would anyone take…

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.

10/17/2018 - 4:57pm So the problem with choosing…

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.

10/11/2018 - 9:26pm Night game in September at…

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.

10/03/2018 - 8:06pm Revolutions is great. Mike…

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.

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?
