The team is rolling!  They are making plays.  The QB is directing the offensive game plan.  They are young, fast and fun to watch.  The defense is showing marked improvement from game to game.  They will get even better!   Diss the competition if you like but they are doing it against scholarship players and their peers.  MSU will present a big test so we should know what kind of team we have after that.

As for the QB position, I like JT's play over Braxton's.  He has a better understanding of the plays, throws a better more accurate ball (just compare completion rates) and looks more poised in the pocket.

Dr. Saturday website is saying Derrick Green 'is out for the year with a broken collarbone!  When it rains....its glorious

Agree.  Spare us from racial controversy here.  There are plenty of political blogs for that.

Sorry DJ,,,your cable "switch-a-roo" tactic, while brilliant, is likely to cost you more than a few bucks.  Suggest you read the fine print.

I did some business consulting work for a DV program 16 years ago.  While 85% of the police reports had the man assaulting the women the rest had both parties or just the women being physical.  Yeah, I don't know the particulars here and neither does anyone else.  How can you assume was Oden was the perpetrator?

Here's the thing.....Women often want and get their own way.  They rarely give in or up.  They can make a man go crazy sometimes.  I have many years of experience. No matter what your general temperament is they know what buttons to push in order to infuriate.  In the heat of the moment I have been temped many times to jawbone a women.  They know your tipping point and occasionally will try to goad you into striking them.  Some women love to play the DV victim so I don't give them that.  I know some will down vote this but this is true.

My advice to you young unmarried guys contemplating a serious relationship or marriage.....RUN!  The more erotic she is, the more psychotic she is.

After reading the NY Times article....My question is.... How does FSU get away with refusing to comment or discuss the case further with the Times? Are they not a "public tax payer funded institution?

 Also, compare the mainstream sports medias coverage of this (and M*chgan's cover-up of their place kickers sexual assault) with the TatGate "scandal".   I say double standards have been applied. 

Comment 14 Apr 2014

Good try but exactly how do you grade a "game" like this?  Both sides of the ball didn't do all that much.  Urban said they will be able work with the players for 2 hours a day during the summer under new rules.  I think they are going to need it to refine team skills.  I was impressed with the overall team speed, however.  Curtis Samuel looks like he has the whole package.  The defense was "aggressive" at the very least,... thank God!

Editing profanity is cool!  I liked this one....~~and, most absurdly, in The Washington Times (whose editor confessed this was “an attempt at a little humor”), alluded to as “a vulgar euphemism for a rectal aperture.”

Overall, I'd say heir football prospects for the short term, don't look very promising.  Hoke is in way over his head and this could be his last year if things go south badly.  I' am all in for a divided fan base in Ann Arbor over "should he stay or should he go?". Much like the end of last year but over the whole season would be fine with me.  However, no 42-41 at the Shoe this year.  They need to be stomped without mercy.

I wish they would amend their commercial to......" Serious Attorneys with seriously fake hair...."

Comment 31 Mar 2014

Actually I think we got the best of both worlds.  The B1G "conference" fans can brag that 3 B1G teams made the Elite Eight.  Yet, the two teams from up North had their hearts ripped out!  Bucky Badger is next. That's a great outcome in my book! 

Comment 27 Mar 2014

My guess is that photo is of Art Schleister.  Looks like somebody is spilling the contents of their bottle of Seagrams as well.  Both were such a shame. 

Comment 26 Mar 2014

OSU has always recruited talented players but talent isn't enough.  Many thought we had enough talent to win last year and I believe we did but talented players alone didn't get the job done!  These guys need to get coached up ( individually and collectively) and then we will see who rises to the top.  I think we had as much, if not more talent than MSU but we got out-coached, NOT out-talented.  Herman- Meyer and Fickel- Ash need to mold all this top 5 talent into a kick ass team.  The offense was up to the task and the coaching was nearly there.  The defensive talent was there but the coaching was woefully inadequate.  We can have all the talent in the world but if the coaches cant use the talent they have effectively, it won't amount to Jack shit.  Meyer is right with his vision for the defense and  Ash was hired to fix the defensive "clown show" we saw last year.  Aggressive line play has to be in sync with linebackers that fly to the ball and backs that press the opposing QB into making near perfect passes.  We had the talent last year and prolly do again this year too.

Akron has had its share of ballers.  Before LeBron " The traitorous SOB" we had Gus Johnson and Nate Thurmond.   

Comment 20 Mar 2014

Never any fun to see my favorite team lose and especially to a second tier Ohio school.  But the chemistry on this team was piss poor all year long!  I'm going miss #4 !  It will be a long time until we see another player like him!

Comment 14 Mar 2014

Your choices for the correct person to take the three is L. Smith, L. Ross and maybe Slam Thompson.  That's it!  Della Valle should not play, let alone shoot in this game.  -IO

Comment 14 Mar 2014

So....your not enjoying this "up & down" season?

Comment 10 Mar 2014

I feel like its good and bad".  Marcus is a walking talking contradiction here.  I think he's trying to say the publicity is good but the "salute" was bad.  Perhaps the opposite is true.  BTW, I watched the tape of that incident yesterday and there is no way only one UM player should have been tossed. Three of them would have been about right! Not that it mattered in the end for those jackwads.
