Sorry, anytime I see a free throw stat of 31-19 when all other statistics are the reasonably identical it leads me to wonder.
the second I turned on the game and saw that Steratore and "TV" Teddy Valentine were officiating I immediately turned to the bartender and said, "I'm so sorry I will be cussing at the tv all night tonight. ted valentine brings out the worst in me."
Steratore and Valentine are freakin' horrible is the point of my message.
and Thad is also the guy who thought Amir Williams was a good basketball player.....
it's really hard to get TFL's and sacks when you are literally held or triple teamed pretty much every play. rewatching the mich st game and literally 9/10 plays he is double teamed and 6 of those 9 he is held with no call from the officials.
living in Pickerington I have ran into coach Hinton a couple times this year.
no kidding our loss is way better than bama's and we have a better win then them as well.
I was at this game in 05' and it was awesome!!! That catch silenced the crowd so fast just like what TTUN State did to us last Saturday. Hopefully the offense rights the ship and we pull out the W. Go Bucks!!!
agreed Knarcisi....I really have no clue how other teams have no problem running screen games against us and 1 receiver routes while everyone else protects and they still complete the pass....we send 5 out and cant complete ne thing....or why on 3rd and 8 we run a 5 yard out and it takes the reciever out of bounds....to me it is design and play calling that just had no imagination or fluidity and continuity within the scheme of the offense this year....also how badly the staff utilized braxton this year is criminal....
I also don't know how MSU avoided those offsides calls on their DL while Bosa gets called for the EXACT SAME THING three times.
I didn't notice that MSU was doing it were they?
Im alright with the designed QB runs....I just really wish we would use a rollout throwback screen on a team like every single team has done to us for 6 straight years....for some reason we never can stop it, yet we never use it against our opponents....also it is make me curious how badly the staff has used braxton this year....to often i see him out at wr in 1 on 1 coverage and all you need is to get him the ball and he makes 1 guy miss yet we never seem to run plays designed for it....
On top of that Illinois was stacking the box which killed any type of screen play from us.
for whatever reason idk if i agree with that....teams screen us to death when we run blitz and more often than not get nice gains doing so....especially on rollout throwback screens
Can't beleive they did not / could not review the TTUN fumble on the kickoff return
forward progress is not reviewable....however had that been ohio state i have no doubt the official would have said the runner was ruled down and thust been able to review it....officiating in the B1G is a JOKE!!!!
they need to do more recognition of what the defense is giving them....like 8/9 in the box fake a elliot run and quick pass out to a receiver in space....also the way they have utilized braxton miller this year is disgusting....when teams have to sell out to stop elliot inside a pull pass quick screen to braxton should be easy....other teams do it against us on a regular basis
+1 McGrind....it is ridiculous how bad officiating has gotten.....
1) They call targeting on the Illinois defender hitting Mike Thomas (to me it was a clean hard hit)
2) A couple of possessions later the illinois offensive player blindside hits darron lee in the head (it was more egregious than the mike thomas hit and was the same thing that corey smith got ejected for in the B1G championship last year......o did i mention the officials totally missed it)
or ya know like teams have done to us the past 8 years....run a rollout backside throwback screen....it for some reason always seems to work against our defense
what i dont understand is why other teams have no problem getting huge gains on throwback screens against us but we never seem to attempt them when the d is just teeing off and loading the box to stop zeke.
man this is one ugly game of football
Typical early third quarter timeout because the play didn't get in on time.— Michael Citro (@11W_Michael) November 14, 2015
I was 50 yd line 8 rows up and the same thing...couldn't see the flag but on the big screen.
this one from the 2014 cma fest is pretty good as well
definitely one of the best performances on live tv in a while....up there with Eric Church singing "The Outsiders" 2 years ago.
thanks Faux!!! I was in attendace for this game! one of my favorite games all time
i mean you gotta do what you gotta do lol
i still dont understand how he doesnt get up and field that punt....to me that is a 1st down you end up giving up most of the time and sometimes more when you don't field the punt....
