The fact of the matter is that their styles are completely different and they are different types of QB's.  I LOVE Braxton and as was pointed out earlier he was fantastic at making his own offense.  JT has many more weapens to distribute the ball to.  Braxton never had trult dependable wideouts nor did he have a dependable H back and if he did he surely didn't have them at the same time.  I do think from a "FAN" perspective that the offense runs smoother with JT at the wheel but you can't deny the numbers, leadership and the results that Braxton got.  He may simply be the better of the 2 because he did so much with so much less.

FWIW part 2...Coleman had 228 on 27 carries...1 went for 90, another went for 52.  That means he was 25 for 88 yards and 3.5 ypc the rest of the time.  Big plays and turnovers is what kills us.  I don't want to relieve rush defense obviously and I know you can't truly separate big plays from bad rush defense but maybe its not as bad as it has appeared.

Keith Byars running out of his shoe vs Illinois in '84.  It was my freshman year and our seats were in the corner of the endzone on the old track before it was taken out.  You couldn't see crap but everyone went nuts on that play and he ran into the endzone basically right in front of us.  I didn't know he ran out of his shoe until the next day on the game replay.  On my ipad and can't get it to embed!

I remember watching THE GAME with my dad and uncle a few times but when I actually became a die hard fan was Earles first season, '79.  I remember watchin the Rose Bowl that year and crying when they lost.  I hated Charles White with every fiber of my being!  I was 13.  Loved them ever since.  My first game in the 'Shoe was the next season against Mich St. I think.

Kentucky is always going to be a basketball school.  I equate them to Indiana.  Damien Harris is not going to elevate them to be a football power.  His decision has to be does he want to win and compete for championships or does he want to simply be perhaps the best player to play for Kentucky.  He's competing against Tim Couch, The Round mound of touchdown and...I can't truly think of anyone else. 

Bottom line is I do hope he makes the right decision for himself.  I wish him well no matter what he does.

I'm all for the entire town of Ann Arbor going up in one spectacular flame...I don't want them to be good...I don't need them to be good...and when they're bad my *ichigan loving friends are very quiet.

Having said certainly would help B1G perception if they were good.

We gotta get Remy a girl...

You are the absolute best when it comes to stats!  Appreciate them immensely!

Comment 21 Nov 2014

Ain't that the truth!  He would have been perfect for this offense.  The only time he was ever effective was when he ran a wheel or a screen.  A lot of wasted talent there but I don't blame him.  I don't think the staff knew what to do with him.

Comment 21 Nov 2014

I found this link which is a pretty good explanation of both.  Big difference I see is that reciever cannot make ANY contact beyond the line of scrimmage, where as the defender cannot make contact beyond the nuetral zone.  So basically the reciever cant touch the defender, but the defender has a chance to pop the reciever.  I think I read this correct

Comment 21 Nov 2014

I'm so sick of everytime a reciever falls down or doesn't catch the ball, he pops up with his hands out lookin for a flag!  Its like every play now. Its a shame that interference both ways have become so subjuective, Hell I look for a flag every play cause you just never know!
