Off the top, I am thinking it was McMillan, Samuel, Slade, Hubbard, Brown, Parry, and now Dixon and Booker.

If you think about it, Shazier has kept LBU going. When we roll into next decade we will speak of all the great Linebackers and that list will start with RDS. My expectation is for OSU to be Linebacker U of the 2010's.

I agree completely! They have a great scheme, but you can't loose a guy like Dennard and expect the next guy up to lock that side of the field down. Not the way they recruit. They are going to have to take some time to develop these guys.

Down year for MSU. They still beat SCUM though.

This sounds like a culture issue. Look at the video of the Bucks entrance to the big house last year. TSUN players were called over by a staff member to start shit as we took the field (can't find the video). Then we have the fight on the field started by Dontre's helmet being snatched off. There's also Lewan's sucker punch, and the punter that was dismissed after his eligibility was up. 

Did I miss anything. 

Their program isn't successful enough to get real criticism from talking heads, but anytime a guy gets thrown out of a club here the story is huge. We hear about the culture issues when Urban was at Florida, but I don't remember it being a problem until he signed on as TOSU Head coach. So it is probably Urban's fault.

I understand that these types of things happen at programs across the country, but we are starting to see a pattern here. From the looks of it there are some serious culture issues up there. I do give them credit for dismissing him, but I wonder what would have happened if there was no video ,and it was Funchess. 

Man I hope Hoke stays for 10 years. Another 10 year slaughter.

Well, it depends on the first injury. If it was a partial tear, they may have chose to stitch or suture the ligament back together. In this case I would agree that it could be susceptible to future damage. If they used a tendon from his hamstring, I would believe that would be a stronger repair. 

Just my opinion. I am no doctor, just been doing research lately because it seems I sprained my LCL.

Haven't even read this yet. Just want to say how thankful I am that you are back at it.

Hope the family is doing well.

Oh, and my sleeper is Rashad Fraizeir. He looked good in the spring game. He had to sit out last year due to transfer rules. That probably helped him gain strength and hone his craft. 

Judging from the spring game alone, it looked like he should be the guy to replace Spence the first 2 games.

I see Doran Grant having a break out year. He quietly out performed Roby last year, and did you see him smoke Dontre in the race off. He is a big physical corner with speed. I can't wait to see how he performs in this new look secondary.

You make a good point about replacing the offensive line. This lends more fuel to the EZE fire. I was watching some of his HS film the other day, and this kid is use to running behind a bad line. It looked like the OL was running a screen play, and EZE is doing his best Barry Sanders impressions in the backfield. Kid's got some serious talent.

It may not do anything for the SOS, but you gotta believe it is doing wonders for the strength of this team. 

Give them all byes. I want an angry battle tested team ready for the post season.

Comment 19 Oct 2013

Looks like the game plan was to take Roby out of the game. Every hit Roby made the defensive player somehow was hurt.
