  • SPORTS MOMENT: The 2003 Fiesta Bowl, everything else pales in comparison. That season and especially the way it ended was incredible. I had an awesome rush for two to three weeks after that game, and it was far and away the greatest sports-related moment of my life.
  • NFL TEAM: Steelers
  • NHL TEAM: Blue Jackets?
  • NBA TEAM: Cavs
  • MLB TEAM: Indians
  • SOCCER TEAM: umm ...... soccer, really???

Exactly.  Hoke was an excellent recruiter.   While his first couple classes didn't exactly set the world on fire the minute they stepped on campus in Ann Arbor, a lot of those kids were gaining valuable experience.  Talent was never the issue.  They were bound to be respectable sooner or later.

So yeah, Hoke probably doesn't this year's squad at 9-2, but they wouldn't have been much worse either.  Hairball took over a talented, experienced football team that was tailor made for the style of football he liked his teams to play.  Their success this hasn't been surprising to anyone paying attention.

The whole offensive game plan was nothing more than a glaring admission that this O'Line cannot be trusted to block.  The coaching staff resigned itself to assuming the fetal position before kickoff.

The first vid should start at 8:18 (of D. Smith's 3rd and 23 over the shoulder catch) and the second at 14:57.(where we see D. Smith get behind MSU's secondary and haul in 44 yard TD.

The article has been slightly revised and what I was commenting on was this:

On Devin Smith's 3-and-22 touchdown grab: "You can't get beat over the top like that."

Which now reads like this.

On Devin Smith's 3-and-22 first down grab: "You can't get beat over the top like that."

I though perhaps Dino was conflating those two plays in his recollection, but it was probably just a typo.

Best COD mission.  I stopped playing after MW3

Exactly.  It burns sanctimonious scUM fans so hard knowing we emerged from Tat-gate as a bigger juggernaut than we were before.  The level of butthurt is so strong with that lot, which I find most glorious.

Well, I watched every season, so there's that.  To me, the show lost its way when it stretched the 1st season's central murder case  into the 2nd.  It never recovered after that IMO.
