09/25/2016 - 9:30am Go pick up Kenneth Dixon.

Go pick up Kenneth Dixon. He's on Ravens and has been hurt. But there has been alot of talk about him becoming the starter midseason once he recovers.

09/25/2016 - 9:28am I think Thomas but only

I think Thomas but only because Delano is hurt and not going to play. Think Yeldon because ivory is out

09/02/2016 - 10:00am Vue is the way to go

Gets you everything you need and works great.  Almost perfect for sports fans - all major networks, FS channels and BTN and SEC network.  

06/27/2016 - 3:53pm Considering he doesn't play safety....

Doesnt seem all that troubling.  

06/06/2016 - 1:28pm They actually invited 24*

04/28/2016 - 12:34pm Have you seen him play live?

Brian Snow at Scout said he wasnt in any rush to move him into Scout's top 100.  That's not a great sign.  

02/25/2016 - 11:38am I think Dawkins Should Start

I agree with the posters above that say Robinson is a better shooter and potentially a better scorer - in a vacuum.  However, basketball isn't played in a vacuum.  It feels to me like the issue is that Robinson is not athletic enough to get open against high caliber players .  As a result, he struggles to get open / get off shots.  Both are liabilities defensively, which is frustrating, but I worry that teams have figured out that Robinson isnt athletic enough / skilled enough yet to beat you off the bounce and so he can now be contained.  Guy has been relatively silent for a month or so.  Because of that - I go with Dawkins

08/10/2015 - 10:18am Auction - Agreed

Makes the draft so much more skill than luck - you can have any player you want.  We use a $100 fixed budget for the auction (some leagues use $200).  You have to have at least $1 last for your last spot.

Also, we use a blind bidding for waivers - no cue.  $1000 fictitious dollars for bidding on players each week.  Bids due by Wednesday night.  First come first served opens Thursday at noon.  We also charge $5 per waiver move.  

Also, we have a bifurcated pool and scoring.  Traditional 13 weeks and then tournament for half the pot.  the other half is based on a season long Vic Points system - 2 points for a win each week and then the top scorer each week gets 2 points, second highest 1.8 points, third highest 1.6 points, etc.  That running total for a 16 week season gets the other half of the pot.  We pay first and second prize in both (including portion of waiver pot).

Great dynamics in the pool. 

04/30/2015 - 6:31pm Well

Find it odd that he one of the mods, but lives on West coast, rarely makes events in AA and doesn't attend many camps. Most of the info starting coming from third party sources or Sam. Sam rocks of course.

03/18/2015 - 6:12pm I can compete at this all day....

8th Grade - broken ankle - football

8th Grade - dislocated thumb - basketball

HS - dislocated right shoulder - football

College - broken nose - elbow to face in pick up basketball game

Age 37 - torn meniscus - jui jitsu

Age 39 - broken big toe - muay thai

 

 

03/16/2015 - 10:40am Bracket Busted

I am in an elimination bracket - you must pick a winner each DAY and can only use each team once.  So, only worried about moving on each day - and, yes, I appreciate that I am unlikely to win, but that's why its called gambling.

08/06/2013 - 2:46pm Auction For Sure

So much more strategy, more involvement and, importantly, ever so much more fair.  Serpentine drafts are not fair and actually rather routine.  the problem is that given the crazy amount of FF information, the tops of drafts across leagues look almost identical.  the result is that, say, the 3rd pick in every league ends up winning it because they took players x, y and Z in the draft (right down the list). Saw it several times before we switched to auction - I would never go back.  

Use $100 in fictional draft dollars and you need to have $1 for your last roster spot on draft day.  I promise it takes about as long as a regular draft.  Best to find an outside other friend to auctioneer.  

07/26/2013 - 11:34am The delusion level is high in this thread

We are at about a 5% chance each for Fournette and JuJu.  If I were to guess:

Hand

Mcdowell

Nicholson/Westphal

Swain/Williams

Surprise (maybe the Hawaiian)

 

 

 

03/20/2013 - 11:19am PITT

is simply horrific.  I like the shockers here.  I watched PITT two or three times this year - so sloppy.  They can't be trusted one bit.

03/15/2013 - 11:47am I said this a couple months back....

GRIII does not know how to block out - McGary is better, but also not great.  GRIII has skyed (sp?) over kids his whole life and never had to learn.  Enter awful rebounding against men not boys.  

02/06/2013 - 1:27pm Issue with the Above - McGary

McGary, love him and his energy.  However, he doesn't block out for $hit.  I would say 10 of ohios points in the late second half were instances where he and/or GR3 had clear position, but didn't block anyone out and so someone behind them grabbed the offensive rebound, often a fellow big.  That is probably why he keeps getting pulled, he is relying too much on athleticism and not enough on fundamentals.  Good god I would scream in his ear every five minutes.  If someone has those Orebs by ohio isolated, you will see it repeatedly.  

02/03/2013 - 8:57pm Honestly

One of the worst shows ever put on television. Is your wife making you watch that instead of the super bowl? Deposit your man card please.

10/05/2012 - 9:54am Really?

I hope to God this never happens.  I can't think of something more stupid said by anyone.  Ever.

08/30/2012 - 9:13am And little misleading

By counting our freshmen in the two deep (Kalis, mags? Ross?) you are inflating our numbers with players who likely aren't ready for prime time. A four star Jr is much different than a four star frosh.

04/16/2012 - 5:50pm I bet we are only going to get to 24 - never have heard 25

My thoughts:

 

 

  1. Poggi - 70%
  2. LaCouture - 20%
  3. Treadwell - 55%
  4. Isaac - 80%
  5. Levenberry - 51%
  6. Cravens - 20%
  7. Fuller - 4% (three of his brothers went to VT)

 

02/09/2012 - 3:19pm Really?

I also heard that the wind is now blowing out of the Southeast in Alabama.  That has about as much influence on Kozan. 

11/30/2011 - 1:10pm If that was a copy of Mallrats

It would be mine.

 

Breakfast shmeakfast.  Breakfasts come and go Renee, but Hartford? The Whale?  They beat Vancouver once maybe twice in a life time. 

10/14/2011 - 1:09pm Well,

I cuss.  Alot.  Especially over the past three years.  That is just the way it goes.  That is why I am on the lookout for either a (i) Michigan fan or (ii) some other major college program lady.  She will understand.  I think. 

I still recall my Father screaming his head off at the screen when either MI scored or screwed up.  My mom was generally elsewhere. 

I don't plan to change.  Maybe that's why there is no lady.  ;)

 

10/07/2011 - 10:54am Sam Predicts the closing class

And you think that something else is more reasonable.  On the one hand, we have a radio guy, program connected, been in the recruiting game for many years.  On the other hand, we have an mgoblog member since early 2011 who thinks that another outcome is more reasonable.  Makes sense.

09/25/2011 - 11:59am The point

Is that he runs worse, passes worse and turns over more out of the I.  Not sure that the old I formation is some big secret that defenses cant crack given that 80% of teams run it and we cant do squat out of it.  So, if I were an opposing coordinator I would be pleading for more I form.

09/25/2011 - 11:56am One issue with your conclusion

Is that you believe that something 'bad' wil happen on the possessions that ended in turnovers.  That is impossible to conclude and, highly dubious, given the improvements that the D made in the other areas.  I don't think you can make any conclusions otherwise.  

09/25/2011 - 4:20am Unfortunately

though, there were many, many drops and many bad throws. it could easily have been much worse. Against a better team, I cringe. overall a very good day and big improvement. long way to go.

09/23/2011 - 2:31pm Great Post

I was watching my DVR of the EMU Michigan Replay and was listening to him and found myself wondering, is this guy a great football mind, and I just couldn't tell.  But that is not his job.  He lets the geniuses do there work and he does his, which is be the team leader.  By all accounts, he is doing a great job.  I couldn't agree more that he is a managerial wizard.  Its just surprising coming from such a tremendous meathead (takes one to know one).

08/18/2011 - 10:48pm i go mandb

the mo's mess is a thing of beauty. it is so good. i also love the #45 at amer's. zingermans - meh.

I now reside in nyc and carnegie is ok. I think Perrys in Chicago bends it over. And then some.

In NYC, just recently had the italian sub at Faccio's. It is absolutely another world. As far as italian subs go...perfect. I strongly recommend.

08/07/2011 - 6:47pm Thats not interesting

that sucks. He's our best wideout. By a mile.

Hagerup might be worse. I think we may be lucky because wile can punt too. No pressure kid.

07/11/2011 - 8:44pm writ of mandamus

is the justification for the filing. this will likely move quickly and not so much to the liking of buckeyes.

07/11/2011 - 8:34pm

didnt see msu complain abiut all the basketball players that wanted to play at michigan but didnt because of pending sanctions. I bet izzo hasnt looked back and wished he had to actually earn his cred. thats how it goes. be happy we are finally the beneficiary rather than the wolverine on the arse of a buckeye redneck's arse.

06/08/2011 - 2:00pm I agree with this

osu is now going to have to justify why (i) this guy was told GTFO and (ii) why there was no reporting.  In addition, if there were sales of say AJ Hawk memorabilia, while he was a student, plus his confession of having $10k stolen from his house, does 1+1=2?

05/24/2011 - 5:25pm Awesome

Which this was coming out Friday, just in time for the visits of Mr Stanford and Man-Beast Washington.

05/10/2011 - 6:10pm Why only a late emerging 2012?

We are still in on several supers in the 2012 class that could take the spot. Sure they are longshots, but there are several options. Mccrary, griii's teammate. There is the Indiana stud wing whose name I keep forgetting.

05/05/2011 - 11:41am Question

I have Apple TV and a Mac.  How can I stream, say hulu or your website, to my TV?  This is something that would be very useful for me, but can't seem to find anything easy to set it up.  Thanks. 

04/29/2011 - 10:09am This guy is an absolute terror

He is a monster.  I think he is a strong OSU guy, but man.  This is one of those years that you can make a killing in Ohio.  Nice year to be opposite a liar.
