Wouldve loved to see Jamarco/Prince play RT while Farris slid inside to guard and Price/Elflein to center. Unfotunately we didnt blow out enough teams this year to give these guys any meaningful reps.
Its never been about Cutlers physical attributes. He and Stafford are two of the most gifted QB's in the NFL. Its between the ears and in Cutler's case specifically, if he actually gives a fuck deep down. Dude is a straight gunslinger tho
It's an interesting question you bring up. There is no doubt in my mind that the coaches on the commitee woud prefer us, we simply have more talent at nearly every position. We would pass the "eye-test". Now the schedule thumpers and "quality win/losses" folks will be the ones holding us back. Either way beat Michigan.
If the outcome isn't pretty come Saturday evening, I know a good divorce lawyer juuuuuust in case ;)
Place was a morgue on Saturday. Before, during and obviously after the game. We lose crowd intimidation each and every year. It's quite sad actually. Even the damn student section was woefully quiet.
Frost wouldn't bite last year, he's not going to this year. He's not going to take a coordinator role, especially one he has to share with another offensive coach. Urban wanted Mike Sanford (currently ND's OC) badly last year, but why would he want to split duties with Warriner when he can be the guy at ND? I think the "dual" experiment sounded great in theory. And it worked for a season with the two of them at Kansas. It's time for a change in my opinion. Too many cooks in the kitchen.
Biddle is a butt nugget.
I'm planning on getting into AA around 8am hopefully (Cbus to my hometown of Toledo Friday, then the easy drive from Toledo to AA early Saturday Morning). Was thinking about parking at the golf course as I have heard it's a pretty legit set up. Any thoughts? I haven't been to a game in AA since they lost to the Rockets in the 2008.
I think we as fans don't put enough of an emphasis on the mental/emotional side of college football games. Just look around the country. Bama gets absolutely blasted by Ole Miss's offense at home. MSU loses to a Nebraska team having one of it's worst seasons in history. It's tough to explain, and there is no one single answer or excuse. Did anyone see any fire in this team all year? Or did it just look as though everyone was waiting for someone to make a play. Going through the motions. Coaches fed into this mentality, playing not to lose every week besides Va Tech. AFRAID to make mistakes. Everyone expected in the end we would simply pull away and get another win. Move on to the next week. That's the mentality this season. The Grind. There is no excitement that comes along with that, playing teams you are heavily favored week in and week out. No chip on your shoulder. No deep down fire in your belly that says lets get that extra yard. "Something" was missing this season. I think we all can agree that the game is a lot more fun when you go out there TRULY knowing you have something to prove. Hell that is MSU's most dangerous weapon. This team PROVED something last season. Complacency is a bitch, something the coaches and players must fight with. Urban's worst fear realized.
Unfortunately two players you didn't see here were Mike Thomas and Vonn Bell. Both ran directly into the locker room after the field goal went through the uprights. Both have most likely played their last game in The Shoe and will probably regret not taking part in Carmen with their brothers one last time in...
I might take some heat for this, but this stuff is straight up lame. 95% of this stuff has been recycled for over a year on Gameday and other social media accounts. The real ammunition lies with the hot sister. Always the hot sister.
I may be anti-aging myself here, but who in the hell is Richard Lewis???
Ya they just had a new baby a few days ago, so Jason withdrew from several over seas tournaments. At least it means he's at home haha!
Why is Aaron Burbridge not featured under receiving threats for MSU? He only leads the conference in receiving lol
I doubt Gameday would touch anything political. Thats dangerous territory. I could see Ryan Johansen. I know RyJo dates a girl who attends OSU, but how many CFB fans actually know who that is?
Most modern popular music in general is straight trash, whether it be county or not. I only singled out country music since Gameday for some reason has an affinity towards using them as guest pickers.
Lets be clear, if LBJ wanted to do this again, he would make it happen regardless of having a game that night or not. He makes the decisions in that organization lol. I think Jason Day would actually be pretty cool. He has a great personality and would be cool having someone from Aussie talking college football. And he made a cool $9.5MM last year in tournament earnings alone which is not too shabby. I just hope its not some trash country singer or some other B-level music talent.
LSU is in an absolute free fall. Even if they win out over Ole Miss and AtM, Fournette would need to go for 200+ in both of those games. He hasn't rushed for 250 in a single game this year, and has been held under 100 the last two weeks, so I don't know how he is most likely going to do that now. LSU is irrelevant, meaning Fournette's chances grow weaker by the day.
Well in place of my flask which would be easier to get picked off by security, I guess im gonna have to go with the Makers mark shooters tucked into my shoes.
Next three games will determine the Heisman certainly, and Zeke has the biggest remaining games to shine in. Fournette is essentially out after back to back losses. Henry is a clear cut number one right now, but like I said Zeke will play in much bigger games down the stretch, including Saturday. Corey Coleman is done as well. Deshaun Watson and Baker Mayfield round out the top 4 for me. As it almost always does (unless someone like Manziel/Tebow/RG3 have a straight up stupid crazy season) the winner of the Heisman will be on a top 10 team. Zeke and Mayfield have the most potential to move up by seasons end. So far I project: 1. Henry 2. Watson 3. Elliot 4. Mayfield
Are you purposefully ignoring Taylor's Junior season? The one where he improved in every statistical passing category and was a top 40 rated passer just behind Blake Bortles and Landry Jones and ahead of Braxton Miller. He also had a 10-2 (TD/INT ration) during his injury shortened senior season. His freshman season success was mainly due to smoke and mirrors by the Nebraska coaching staff. Martinez nearly ran the ball as many times as he had pass attempts. He had a tough sophomore season no doubt, but saying he regressed by the end of his career is simply silly.
Take all projections not for this years draft class with a gallon of salt. Way too hard to project that far, and thy always put players in their senior year class (JT/Hubbard) regardless of redshirt years and when they are draft eligible.
