He's served an 11 game suspension thus far, its not as if he'd be getting off without punishment.  Him coming back and playing doesn't send a negative message to anyone except opposing QB's.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Technically, the B1G CG isn't on our schedule yet.  My hope is they said a 10 game suspension was enough, and he got his life in order

I can't emphasize how much I want this to be true!!!!!!!!!

Comment 20 Nov 2014

At times he was, they like to move him around to try and confuse the offense.  Baldwin held his own against him nicely too, but Decker absolutely shut him down.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Not a midwest guy, but Nick Bosa should be the gem of the 2016 class.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Calhoun was hurt?  Not seriously, limping off then returning doesn't mean you're hurt.

Mewhort wasn't draftd in the 2nd?  Also, Decker not being as good as NFL quality Seniors during his Sophmore season says what exactly?

Comment 20 Nov 2014

 Urban even said decker was easily the worst starter last year.

Well, 3 of the other 4 starters from last year are starting in the NFL so I wouldn't read too far into that statement.  As for Decker not being that good, what are you basing that on?  How much of an impact did Shilique Calhoun have in the MSU game?  He's likely to be a 1st round pick in April.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

So we get Decker AND Warriner back next year, I like the way you think!

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Still early but I haven't seen him mentioned in any mocks I've seen.  Gotta think he comes back if he doesn't get 1st round hype, at least thats my hope.

Nothing against Durkin, but Fickell hands down.

As a LB coach, Durkin has produced names like John Bostic, Jelani Jenkins and Ronald Powell.  Not a bad list by itself but pretty thin when you compare it to AJ Hawk, Anthony Schlegel, Bobby Carpenter, James Laurinaitis, Brian Rolle, Austin Spitler and Ryan Shazier.

Fickell has done a tremendous job producing LB's at OSU.

As for Fickell as a DC, here's how I look at it.  2005 to 2010, Fickell co-DC on the field and Heacock Co-DC in the box.  Our D was stellar.  2011, Fickell leaves the D staff to be HC, we see a MAJOR dropoff.  2012-2013, Fickell co-DC on the field and Withers co-DC in the box.  Our D was bad.  2014, Fickell co-DC on the field nd Ash co-DC in the box, we see improvement.  How can anyone look at that objectively and say that Fickell is the weak link?

Comment 10 Nov 2014

Stoops would be a HUGE upgrade for them, but they still wouldn't be a threat to become the class of the B1G.  He'd give them more hope fot the occasional upset over us, but he couldn't consistently hang with Urban.  MSU fans would be the most impacted by the move outside of AA.

2012: Taylor Decker, Jacoby Boren, Pat Efflein, Kyle Dodson, Joey Oconnor

2013: Evan Lisle, Billy Price

2014: Jamarco Jones, Big Meech, Kyle Trout, Marcelys Jones, Brady Taylor

Doesn't look like anything is wrong with our OL recruiting to me.

Comment 30 Oct 2014

He'll face Joey for 1 season if he starts right away.  After that it will be Nick Bosa that is haunting his dreams if he's at PSU.

Comment 30 Oct 2014

Exactly, Brady Hoke was doing better at this stage at scUM than Franklin is at PSU.  Until we see franklin garner some success on the field, he's the next Hoke in the B1G.

Comment 29 Oct 2014

Haha, good catch.  Looks like he goes in with every intention of blocking but quickly realizes all 3 are afraid to hit the Beast so his services aren't required.

Comment 29 Oct 2014

Haha, me too.  I remember laughing at him alot that day.

Best part of the run to me is watching Marcus Hall absolutely destroy his guy which opened a hole you could drive a truck through at the LoS.

Comment 29 Oct 2014

No way it hurts his draft stock, he'll still be the 1st RB off the board in April.  If anything, NFL teams may like the fact that he lost 4 games of wear and tear.

Comment 29 Oct 2014

Sounds about right.  AJ Green got 4 as well for selling his game jersey.  Tat 5 got 5 games, but I think the extra game was the tradeoff for them playing in the Sugar Bowl.

Comment 27 Oct 2014

You better do it via text.  After seeing her react to a CFB loss, I wouldn't want to be front row to her reaction to being blown off.
