You're definitely right. Not to mention, the players that weren't developed under the previous coaches. It'll take time to rebuild regardless who's HC.
I agree Glover-Williams is definitely h-back material, though I have read a lot about him getting a shot at CB because of his FNL performance. I also think AJ Alexander or even Ward if he doesn't end up at CB.
It's pretty ironic Rich Rod's been successful everywhere he's been but UM. It Just shows me he obviously wasn't the problem. The guy wasnt given a chance from the start simply bc he wasn't a "mich man." I think it's gonna be really hard for them to get an elite coach bc of all this. It'll be interesting seeing how this plays out.
There's been really stupid comments from some "fans" this year. The attacks on coaches and players after the VaTech loss was just embarrassing. You'd think we were like 5-6 and need a new head coach. I'll leave that to the TTUN fans.
I agree 100%. He's the most important asst on staff right now. I saw a quote from an anonymous recruit saying they pay attention to fan sites and whats said abiut players and coaches. He couldn't believe our "fans" we're bashing Warriner said "he's the man" and is only looking at OSU now because of him. Hope he stays at least one more year but think its wishful thinking.
He'll probably win national coach of the year and the B1G will have someone else.
I'd like to watch it also. Don't seem to get it in Toledo.
"Wa wa well uh ugh I don't got..lol..i tell ya bring the head comb" I speak denture.
I think the coaches should call the game like its all or nothing. If we go up tempo and play extremely agressive on D it's gonna be tough for MSU to handle that all game. They've been winning because of offense this year so we need to overwhelm Cook and the Oline with constant pressure. I think it's gonna be a long day for Cook and the offense.
Totally agree, Withers ran the DBs like a separate team and it made for bad defense. The players said theres no more fighting between units, several times this offseason. That leaves me to believe it was a lot of the problem and why the D is playing a lot more together.
Well 7 unanswered, that's how we won 31-24.
He played about as much as grant, but didn't really make mistakes or have any big plays, so we didn't hear his name much. Grant made a lot of mistakes, bad penalties and missed tackles, so he stood out more for the wrong reasons. I think McMillan will really come on during B1G play.
There were pics of these out earlier this year. I definitely think they've been looking at doing this for awhile. I think it's gonna be for MSU. The black might not be buckeye colors but its intimidating as hell. I hate the Ravens uniforms but they do have a serious intimidation factor. This would be great to give a little edge to balance out the home field advantage.
Sounds like he's just very intelligent. Would be a great addition to the program.
That's funny, I live in Toledo, and you're totally right. My one buddy from HS stopped wearing mich gear during rich rod but after Hoke started wearing it again. They've got a lot of delusional and fair weather fans.
To be honest, the only bad plays were bc of the call by Herman. He admitted he made bad play calls. Barrett made all the right reads on options and threw some incredible passes. I can literally see him going thru his reads 1,2,3 pass to TE over the middle. Our D may have issues but they're young just wait til all these guys have a season under their belt. The next 3 yrs are gonna be awesome.
Pretty ironic, a media company suspending him for making comments like he's supposed to. I'm so tired of eSECpn's selective "reporting" and pushing their products. They used to just show games, highlights, and talk about them. Now they just create "news" and are like a one big infomercial.
Hubbard is obviously a stud athlete to switch positions so easily. I always thought he'd end up playing DE with his height and speed. Hopefully they get him settled at one spot so he can develope into a beast for us. I think if we keep Alexander and Moore in this class, hubbard will be kept on D.
What I don't understand is, he made an incredible one-handed catch his freshman year, and haven't seen anything since. There's so many times we throw a jump ball, he should catch, yet he never does. It drives me nuts.
Actually we evened that out with Tressel and added a few more wins recently.
