I think they all assessed themselves very fairly. Reviewing yourself can be a very difficult thing to do. You typically dont want to put on paper the mistakes or areas you can improve upon, even though deep down you know your best effort may not have been given. I think they hit on exactly where there needs to be improvement and look forward to seeing these coaches reach their goals. If they reach their goals, no doubt the players and fans will have a quality season.
Is someone committing today?
I was at that game. If memory serves me, Wiley had like 4 TD's on 5 touches or something like that. Him and Boston were ready to play early! Would love to see a few of these young guys be as ready as those two were.
That is an awesome response to me being a moron! Can we at least argue the biggest criers in the NBA today??
Well, played, DJ. Its early and I havent had my coffee yet. Wow, how did I miss that!?
Alright, DJ, you're going to suck me in. Jordan didn't cry a third of what today's NBA players do (LBJ included). Its like todays players are trained to throw their arms up every time they hear a whistle. Certainly there has to be a bigger crier in todays game??
Dont children of employees of the university go to school for free? If so, OSU wouldnt have to use a scholly for him. Not sure if that is still a thing though, I believe it was back in the day.
The last time we saw Tresselball in the Meyer era I think MSU's kicker was running acrossed the field having kicked a game winner?
I really don't like Tressel and was happy to see him leave. Wish it didnt cost us a what it did but I was ready to move on from Tresselball. Also, anyone who thinks he was really just "protecting his players" when lying to the NCAA is looking at it with Scarlet glasses.
Absolutely despised Meyer at Florida until I listened to him do commentary for ESPN after he retired then wanted him at OSU so badly!
Hate College Gameday as well. It use to be a staple to watch but now as I've grown older I 1) dont have the time and 2) see it as just one more terrible "opinion show"
I love the alternate uniforms but hated the all black ones.
Wasnt Tai Streets studying General for like a Decade at Michigan?
Glad to know Meyer was way ahead of this thing. I imagine Meyer is a good judge of character and trust that they had a very uncomfortable talk about this situation. You have to take Schiano at his word as it would/will be very difficult to prove otherwise in this hearsay matter.
Brewster, you are spot on in this entire thread! Thank you!
I like it! Although, I would rather see Michigan at the top as a tune-up game before we hit the meat of the schedule.
Against our rival....and Notre Dame. For some reason found that hilarious!
Ha, I agree completely!
Am I alone in really liking the leather helmet? Would I want to see it every game? No, however, I think it works really well with these throwback uni's for one night.
One of the best posts I've read on here in a long time, Blu.fan! Well done!
Take away Lebron's size and what does he provide? If your answer is a terrible shot and receding hairline, you'd be correct.
Probably just a hair below LBJ fanboys. You know the ones, right? Hated the guy 3 yrs ago but now defend him til the end. Is that considered bandwagon or not? Because apparently if you appreciate the way GS plays basketball you're just a band wagoner.
I didn't say Curry had a great game. He had a very bad game! There's no question in that but when it was time to hit a shot he hit it. That's all I was saying. Don't act like Curry doesn't or hasn't hit big shots throughout these last two years! No one has done it better. Because he had a bad game means he doesn't have ice in his veins??
You act as if he was a non factor. How many layups did GS get because 2 Cav defenders followed Curry off the screen? Seems like Cleveland was defending him like a unanimous MVP.
I also believe I said he was Neutralized the entire game. That is giving credit to the defense.
Curry always seems to be there at the end when the team truly needs him. He is a closer and fans love to watch closers. You look at the difference all year in Curry and LBJ, Curry's face was constantly being shown closing games out in the final 3-5 mins. That's flashy marketability for the NBA and Curry. Where as Lebron is much more of a grinder and more times than not differs to teammates late in the game. I think you put LBJ on any team and they automatically become contender but while carrying 7 mediocre players to the finals is impressive, its done in about the most non sexy way possible. You take last night for instance, when it got to crunch time (under 5) who made the first dagger to remind everyone its game time? Curry was there! He was absolutely neutralized the entire game but when it was game time he nails a 3 and then Thompson gets in on the action to finish it off. Most people enjoy watching that kind of play and watching a player more times than not has ice running through his veins and is not afraid of shooting when things get tight. I think both would be great in any era. They are great players with unique skill sets. Could you imagine them on the same team? My god LBJ's ability to get to the basket and Curry sitting out there dropping 3's!?
