Hate the way scheduling works...Sparty hasn't been to the shoe since the 6-7 season when they beat us in that crappy weather.
for the love of god!!! (said in Chris Farley voice) one of you change your avatar!
My thoughts exactly...what does bench press have to do with anyone other than Linemen and WR's trying to get off the line? They should have squats in there as well for the RB's and do some tackling drills to see what their 'shake' is like. The combine is pretty worthless imo...and that goes for everyone not just players like Hyde.
Rhubarb pie is quite possibly the best damn thing ever!!
Not saying that he needed to...just a question.
Question for Birm,
Has he even set foot on campus in his life?
sweet!! welcome aboard!!
exactly what I was thinking
who are the 89.55 people who think no? and why more importantly? lol...don't be shy come forth with your resoning.
I chose yes because He had a top 3 (B1G) defense when he was at Wisconsin, Herman hated going against him so that's saying something.
Edit : now 90.6 since posting this.
And I think he is stepping in...I think this article and interview proves that. What do you want him to do? Pull his son out of the best opportunity he will probably ever have in life just to prove a point?
Besides, His dad can't exactly force him to do anything at all. Marcus is a Redshirt freshman and is definitely at least 18 by now. Being 18 makes him an adult free to make his own decisions and live with the consequences. He also is getting underage drinking violations..he's not breaking into cars and stealing old ladies purses...put a little perspective on this situation please.
“No matter what punishment they hand out, what more can [the coaches] do? We need to know if Marcus has a problem and needs help. What is going on?
Did you happen to miss that quote? His own father is saying that the coaches have done all they can which to me seems like he's not holding them accountable.
Do you even read bro?
Those are really cool Jerseys! I wish I had $285.00 laying around to pick one up.
Devin Gardner will hopefully not have the same level of success next year, but this rivalry has become a lot more even under Brady Hoke than it was under Rich Rodriguez or the final years of the Lloyd Carr era.
To me, that has a lot more to do with Ohio State than it does with Michigan. Instead of improving and dominating them we are regressing down to their level (defensively anyway).
not to mention at that point they are adults and most of them are productive members of society.
wow, never thought about it but that is so true man. Once this class graduates (football) will any of the current players have experienced a bowl victory? I don't think so. That's a shame, it needs to happen in a big way next year for the football team.
I don't think so. Everyone tries to sell craft short by saying he's not athletic and can't shoot (he's had his troubles) But the kid is a winner and he holds the all time OSU record for steals and will eventually hold the record for wins as well I think.
As much as I love Circle-K and the National championship season in 02' I don't think you can put them in the same category. Just watch how much we struggle on Defense and creating turnovers when he leaves this year.
EDIT: After this year
So what you are saying is that when a kicker makes a field goal that it's basically a coin flip? OK
Holy Crap..just realized..what the hell ever happened to him? I know El Guapo was the man and he had Jordan Hall coming in relief...but when was the last game Rod got playing time?
for the record, I'm not the one giving you DV's
It is, The important factor is not that he left or "quit" but why. That's where we differ in opinion.
btw this is the last thing I am going to say here. It's getting really dumb.
you are right, I love a good argument.
I never said that I did, but it's pretty fucking stupid to think that he's just so tired of it all and just can't play another down for this "dumpster fire" of a defense. Not everyone is a whiny little bitch quitter.
The second part of your post is accurate, I also feel bad he never got to experience a bowl victory. But the first part is you taking leaps in your head (probably what YOU would think) You can't know what his thought process is in making this decision. And I can guarantee you the bond he has with this University and his teammates is so strong that they could have won zero games and he would still not have said "Fuck it".
Thanks, guess I'm just wondering why this is "news" now then.
