hope i'm wrong, but i heard through the grapevine that gary may be done for the year. here's to hoping those grapes are wrong.

you must have missed 2008
|10/14/2018 - 4:32pm||the milton wildcat play…||
the milton wildcat play early in the game was a head scratcher. and no mason usage at all; despite several short yardage opportunities, some near the goal line, also boggled my mind. but overall, they mixed up the plays a lot and the QBs legs won the day on offense.
i couldn't believe our receivers could not get open at all throughout the game against what was supposed to be an awful secondary. don't know if it was poor route design or lack of effort.
|10/14/2018 - 4:17pm||i definitely bashed the OL…||
i definitely bashed the OL after the ND game and was extremely worried about the remainder of the season. but give those guys (and the coaches) credit, because they are leaps and bounds better. i can't get over the improvement in pass protection in just a few weeks. i realize shea has avoided several sacks, but the improvement is there. the run blocking was a little shaky in the first half but they tore it up in the second.
kudos to the OL. we are now a legit top 10 team.

but let's ignore wisky's injuries on D.
|10/12/2018 - 3:05pm||ya, what a joke.

ya, what a joke.
1. said he never heard of the walton battery (eh hem, littering) incedent. i find that implausible, given that it was plead down and i have to believe the athletic dept knew about it, since according to other reports, that's where complaints against athletes go.
2. said he never heard of the walton gang rape incedent. again, too many people knew (AD, asst AD had meetings with the parent and victim). my guess is that the victim got a 7 figure payment to go away, we haven't heard anything from her after the story broke.
3. payne admitted on tape that he and appling assaulted that victim. she said no, he said he stopped but appling kept going for more. again, nothing happened.
izzo is scum.

that is revisionist history. that said, most people, including myself, were very happy and optimistic AFTER year 1 of Hoke.
|10/11/2018 - 11:56am||...except chase is literally…||
...except chase is literally right there in front of the ref's face two steps from the QB. there is no way that ref can avoid seeing that hold; those chase acted a bit, imo.
|10/09/2018 - 3:56pm||exactly. likely dozens of…||
exactly. likely dozens of kids. for sure add iowa to that list.
|10/09/2018 - 1:02am||don't forget about mike…||
don't forget about mike martin. also a DB a few years back. wisky has been an unexpected dirty team against us for years.
|10/07/2018 - 2:13pm||"the down never happened". …||
"the down never happened". those are your words, not the rulebook. the rulebook should, indeed, disclose an exception here, but it doesn't.
|10/07/2018 - 1:30pm||ARTICLE 1. a. A penalty is…||
ARTICLE 1. a. A penalty is completed when it is accepted, declined or canceled according to rule, or when the choice is obvious to the referee. b. Any penalty may be declined, but a disqualified player must leave the game whether the penalty is accepted or declined (Rule 2-27-12).
b - indicates any penalty can be declined. That rule does not state on exception for offsetting fouls. If there is an exception, the rule book should disclose it.
|10/07/2018 - 11:54am||yep. a definite screw up…||
yep. a definite screw up there; either by the refs or harbaugh.
|10/07/2018 - 11:42am||personally, i like the TD…||
personally, i like the TD pass to Bell the best. he avoided the rush, then threaded the needle through two defenders. helluva play.
|09/29/2018 - 11:12pm||if this was on the play i…||
if this was on the play i noted below, harbaugh did get after the refs after we punted; for the 2nd time after the illegal formation.
|09/29/2018 - 11:10pm||was this on the shae keeper…||
was this on the shae keeper early in the 4Q that went for about 30 yards? i just got home from the game. the microphones on the refs were terrible at the stadium. couldn't hear a damn thing. they showed a quick replay and i couldn't see a hold anywhere on that side and the damn side judge threw the flag.
|09/27/2018 - 1:13pm||that's my take too, fwiw||
that's my take too, fwiw

you can be our bruce willis. small price to pay.

I heard from UM staff at a tailgate after the Neb game that WI game will be at 7pm.
|09/24/2018 - 1:11pm||DL have to run a helluva lot…||
DL have to run a helluva lot more than OL on each play.
|09/24/2018 - 4:38am||better than 97? no way. …||
better than 97? no way. that team gave up under 200 yds and 10 pts per game. it was sick. they didn't need to blitz to put constant pressure on the QB. and woodson took out the other teams #1 receiver every game.
|09/24/2018 - 4:28am||you mean like most teams in…||
you mean like most teams in the country to this point
|09/24/2018 - 4:27am||improve the safety play then…||
improve the safety play then you will have a near perfect D. too many big plays given up, even when guys are in position to make the play.

then respond in that thread where it belongs
|09/23/2018 - 5:13pm||the vegas line was 18 and UM…||
the vegas line was 18 and UM won by 46. and my Neb friend said before the game that their DL was the team's strength. take that for what it's worth. the team deserves credit, especially the OL, for that beat down.
|09/23/2018 - 12:46pm||Kudos to the OL. they have…||
Kudos to the OL. they have been bashed mercilessly on and off the field, including by me. they appear to improving each week. hope it continues. if so, great chance at a special year.
also, this blowout allowed a lot of young guys to play. holy crap, it appears we have a lot of fast and skilled WRs, a stable of RBs, and no worries at QB depth.
|09/23/2018 - 10:45am||well, the defensive players…||
well, the defensive players were calling each other out late in the game. a fight broke out between a few of the players. a lot of pushing, shoving, and yelling. i sat 5 rows behind their bench and witnessed it.
that team may be broken.
|09/23/2018 - 12:58am||i heard a stat before the…||
i heard a stat before the season that the entire BIG missed 6 xtra points all last season. nordin had 3 of them.
|09/23/2018 - 12:55am||ha. i was saying that too. …||
ha. i was saying that too. but that was a helluva 4th yard pass. damn alligator arms.
|09/21/2018 - 11:22am||agree USC stinks right now…||
agree. USC stinks right now but to put the blame on Drevno is stupid. this would be the first time i've ever heard someone say (be it nfl, ncaa or peewee football) "ya, our offense is terrible. it's our RB coach's fault".
|09/20/2018 - 7:09pm||they could also fake the…||
they could also fake the handoff to thomas and run a QB waggle the other direction with the HB sprinting that way too, giving patterson the run, pitch or pass option.
save it for osu
|09/20/2018 - 2:48pm||i would think it would be…||
i would think it would be much easier to attend meeting with the mavs on short notice from his dallas home than living in LA. there is also this from another article:
"An acquaintance who used to work the business side of the Mavs once told me that Mark Cuban was so intent on micromanaging each department's actions, they came up with a defense plan so they could get some work done. Any time the boss asked about the day's events, they'd have a story. Only it might not reflect the actual scope of their actions."
|09/20/2018 - 1:24pm||From an article about his…||
From an article about his Dallas area mansion:
"Mark has a special office built at his residence from which he carries out most of his business ventures from, since he moved in about 15 years ago."
So I'm guessing he spends a lot of time with the Mavericks than LA shark tank.
|09/20/2018 - 1:16pm||what injury? what kind of…||
what injury? what kind of surgery? you ask a question about players with a similar injury, but don't describe his injury.
|09/20/2018 - 3:50am||idk. i think i would rather…||
idk. i think i would rather have AJ Dillon.
|09/17/2018 - 10:33pm||meyer keeps tripping over…||
meyer keeps tripping over his own lies. in the espn interview, he claims that he never knew of any domestic abuse by smith. never discussed smith's domestic violence issues or saw the pictures provided to his wife. he also has said he didn't know about the dui.
he goes on to say that he kept smith on board so he could continue to provide for his family and to help him through his troubles. he said he wish he would have fired him long ago over those troubles? but what troubles? he said he knew of no domestic abuse or dui. he actually said his mistake was basically being too caring for his players and coaches.
what a lying disingenuous piece of garbage.
|09/17/2018 - 5:55pm||i had to listen to the 2H on…||
i had to listen to the 2H on the radio for the first time in a long time. man, brandstatter and dierdorf are absolutely brutal to listen to. don't know how regular listeners tolerate them.
|09/16/2018 - 1:11am||osu moved miller to wr so…||
osu moved miller to wr so barrett could take over at qb. so not sure miller > barrett. in fact, he wasn't. terrible passer.

Bolden's targeting call against sparty is the worst in the history of football and it will be almost impossible to top it.
