LOL that was the entire premise of the forum post, that his forearm was down :)
No - you can use your hand and only your hand to steady yourself but any forearm or elbow, and you're down.
Thank you sir.
Yes! I remember thinking how good our line was yet had barely heard Bosa's name. Good things.
Maybe. Quick summary: "be yourself"
Watch the hurry-up, non review fourth down call again. As Eze was rolling over the defender, seemingly staying up, his whole left forearm is down sorta behind the defender. He was down.
At least the NCAA has done so much to reduce injuries with their war on concussions.
Meanwhile you can break a players knees with a block like this. (I'm all about reducing concussions, but all injuries are a concern in my eyes. SMH at the NCAA)
Thanks for the info!
The problem is it didnt take an elite passing offense to shred us last year. Hopefully we are new and improved now though.
1) Bo Pelini: "I could care less about our ranking..." - you moron it's I COULDN'T care less, as in you care so little now that you couldn't possibly care any less.
2) Franklin: "Whenever you're the furthest from the ball, you have the best chance of getting on the field early." - Ummm what? What am I missing here? Maybe it's the beer in me, but I don't get it.
Noob here. Can someone explain cut blocking and why it's a concern and why Navy seems to do it more than others?
This times 1000. I am pretty sure the BUKEYES went 24-0, not Braxton Miller all by himself. This is a bump in the road and I am excited to see J.T.'s development along with all the other side stories we have (young O-line, young D with new schemes, tons of speed at skill positions etc).
Well, he was taking a water break..and it was during stretching...
They deleted duplicate guesses saving only the first guess for each guy. You must not have been first to guess Meechy.
Agreed. We really should have beat them last year. If we didn't give up a zillion yards threw the air on only a handful of large pass plays to guys that were WIDE open, we would have.
Not making an excuse - it's just that our passing D was just THAT BAD. And the supposed best D in the country wasn't exaclty shutting us down - we scored 24 unanswered against them.
And, as you point out, MSU on paper might not be as good this year. To immediately assume we'd lose even if Braxton was playing doesn't seem quite right.
You're on pace to win the Interwebs today, Chitown, with that comment.
It's actually kinda nice to not have clear-cut expectations now, and not be in win-every-game-or-bust mode (although we totally could run the table). It's more excitement to see what JT Barret, our slew of speedy skill players, and our new revamped D can do. Let's play some foosball!!
I'm going to love watching replays of the final seconds of
Appy State's victory Michigan's greatest shame over and over and over on ESPN, or anywhere probably, in the week leading up to that game, and especially on game day/pregame. I may set some DVRs even though video is plenty available on the interwebds.
Well done Jed and Speed.
i may have been a little conservative. But I would argue those runs - although the D knew they were coming - were in garbage time when the other team's will was already broken. I.E. Penn State - we absolutely obliterated them. They couldn't have stopped me if I was running the ball.
Cardale Jones is a lot like Tebow as a Freshman...huge and very hard to bring down. He's the type of guy you could bring in and you know he's running the ball, but he gets 4-5 yards anyway. Tebow destroyed us in the 2007 NC game this same way.
Yep, HIPPOS are protected.
Yes I most certainly did.
Ya’ll got you a good one, that’s for dang sure.
Amen. Darn tootin'.
...I think that will determine

Seriously, though, you're right - Iowa has an easy path also. I just see Iowa slipping up somewhere else being more likely
