I had a strong feeling Elliot was going to have a break out game. I actually feel ok about Apple in the long term this year. He was badly badly burnt. But like last year when decker was getting disabused by Khalil Mack, time to embrace him, help him with his technique and play some ball!  No team is going to beat you if their only offense is a couple balls over the top (see Bucks vs VT). 

I am not waiting for next year.  I want both this year AND next

I feel the answer to this is in the 45 (frakkin) first downs.  up tempo means the defense doesn't get to make down specific personnel changes and relieve fatigued linemen.  Nothing is as entertaining as watching a 300 lb lineman having to sprint off the field late in the game when he is already dog tired.  Also, giving the D less time to read and translate the O formation puts them on the back foot 'reacting' rather than 'anticipating.

MSU aren't as fazed by this as their D base seems largely the same with subtle variations depending on the Offensive action.

TOP for the Cincy game was what 41 to 18 minutes?  As much as their O was happy to have scored in 3 seconds... the cinch D couldn't have been that excited about spending 2/3 of the game on the field.

What was your first hint? And where have you been traveling without a signal for two years?  

Average is still better than last year. And you have go from god awful, to bad through average until finally you can glimpse good.

Apple got owned but grant seemed ok? Patience. They will slowly improve

abdullah sounds almost intelligent when being interviewed.  he is far and away the B1G back right now... showing good heart week after week.  have to admire the way he just doesn't go down.

No disrespect to our other ends but it would be fun once to come out in a 3-4 since we don't have spence and have both grant and kwon showing blitz. Then deciding based on audibles who to drop back or maybe let one of them come on a delayed blitz. Or.. Or...

im gonna go mess up our D on the Xbox ;)

Did anyone notice previously when Meyer said he was having the 1s practice vs the 1s last week?  I hope they don't let up at all this week in spite of the bye

Comment 15 Sep 2014

I know championship aspirations and blah blah we should win the B1G blah blah... I for some reason am really looking forward to the ugly blue and piss yellow uniforms having the Shoe drop on them this year.  More than most years in recent memory, perhaps its the knowledge that they may well get Hoke canned, maybe it's feeling Dontre has some payback to dish out, perhaps it's knowing there's gonna be blood on the field...

bring. it.

even though our WRs were doing more work... am I the only one that found it slightly disheartening that JT had to often go through all his progressions (though it was fantastic he had time to), sometimes up to 4 or 5... against Kent State?  Our WRs should have been abusing their DBs at will.

Then again watching D Smith run a non streak route was like a revaluation.

I'm right there with you brotha.  haters gonna hate, doubters gonna doubt... but win or lose we get to watch a lot more football before it's all said and done.  Let's just hope there's more winning than losing
