And both teams had crap play calling, what I said didn't change that MSU played field position. At 24 straight games weren't we all looking at that game where we were due for a loss? IMO weather, coaching, etc led to it. Disappointed but, the Stars were aligned for MSU to pull it out.
MSU played for field position, tressel ball. OSU couldn't exploit the weakness and pass, and had to face their strength against the run. In the end if we won by 3 with that performance we would still be blasted and unfulfilled.
I don't disagree with what he said, but his comments were only more ammunition for the national talking heads who were waiting for OSU to lose to use against them. Give MSU their due, they played tressel ball perfectly with the weather as an ally negating the big play ability of OSU. With JT at QB Zeke loses carries, that's the way it's always been. For what we believe is the best option at QB comes at a price for Zekes touches.
When you lose 4 games in 4 years, as a player youre probably not really equipped to deal with a loss, especially since this team was supposed to "repeat". I think a lot of comments were heat of the moment. And should have been behind closed doors
That was pretty much the same point I made. The offense did enough to win both games had OSU just had a mediocre defense that year. So being critical of a few play calls on offense and pointing to that as a sole reason for losing makes no sense when start to finish the D was horrid. Yes I agree bad calls were made, but we should not have given up 34 and 40 points to those teams
The D, doomed OSU more in those losses to MSU and Clemson than the offense did. You can say play calling sucked all you want, but the D was non existent those final 3 games.
MSU is a top 5 team that lost on a bogus call. Crap weather played into their strength with neither team really able to pass. Play calling sucked, but so did theirs. It's never easy to replace a good coordinator, it's not easy to go undefeated. These are facts and hopefully this is the shot in the arm to wake this team up and finish strong
Basically OSU loses to a very good team and we are trash, while we give teams like Bama a pass because SEC bias, Clemson hasn't lost but I wouldn't exactly say they have looked great in every game either. ND's best win is against Temple. With only 2 undefeated teams left I would say there are a lot of flawed teams besides OSU. Fact is, it's really hard to go undefeated. I'm sure douche bag McGee had this saved on his computer for a long time.
Saying OSU is a fraud is not giving MSU the credit they deserve. MSU has proven through the years they can beat top competition. The crap weather played in to their hands when we couldn't pass or catch the ball. Play calling sucked, but so did theirs. This was a game where the better rush D would win, and they had it and won field position
Stap it up and beat *chigan is all I have to say
I'm not concerned with players thinking about the draft. That's an excuse bama wants to play. If anything this is the stretch through the playoffs to prove your worth
I figured he would say that, as whatever anyone else would say to try and get out of a ticket.
The refs did completely blow the call. It's not as if the TD was remotely legit. I doubt any OSU fan would not blame the refs if that same scenario had played out against us. All I can say is MSU was living on borrowed time. Stole a win from *ichigan, struggled against Purdue and IU. They are definitely not nearly as good as they were the last 2 years
Cardale was a 3rd or 4th round draft pick last year, and he's still probably a 3rd or 4th round pick based on his physical ability. IMO he may have a longer NFL career if a team takes the time to develop him rather than drop him in as a starter day 1.
The QBs passed 19 times, which was more attempts than Hackenberg. Why pass when they can't stop the run? OSU is not going to abandon the pass

Why do bad things happen to good people.... Lol JK
0.09 Michigan is back! At 0.00 not so much lol
Can I have your wisky gear is funny
That wasn't the only way they said they tried to contact him if you follow the tweets on their board. That was time stamped to at least show the attempt was made before yesterday. The forum starts off as if Clarett was totally out of the process. You'd think if you're pitching an idea to the company you'd respond when they try to contact you. Perhaps he blew them off because they didn't try and make the shirt in 2012. Maybe there was a hold up due to the 30 for 30 rights. All I am saying is there maybe more than one side of the story.
Not exactly sure what went down but it does look like Homage tried to contact him in September. If they sincerely tried to make contact I'd like to know more, doesn't sound like they tried to move on with out his knowledge https://mobile.twitter.com/HOMAGE/status/644154120341852161
At 55% passing JT is not looking better. And yes it is simply as easy as not making turnovers and penalties. Two fumbles by Marshall kills a red zone chance and a start of a drive. Or a penalty takes a TD away on a swing pass. I just listed 3 passes that would have made Jones look better. Instead they ended with zero points. Keep in mind the other penalties that take a 3rd and short and turn them into a low % play or negates a good play. So yes fix those and and the offense is in better position
This isn't last year and JT is looking just as bad this year. If JT starts are you going to hold him accountable for the penalties and turnovers as well? I don't remember people doing it last year but for some reason CJ is responsible for them all this year. I'd much rather have the best QB play which seems to be CJ based on the selection by the coaches. I'd rather not lose a start for CJ to get better just because people assume JT is going to magically fix penalties and turnovers. Btw we have the best RB in cfb running the spread option takes carries out of his hands and gets the QB hit which I thought everyone complained about when we didn't feed the RBs enough the previous two seasons
The difference this year is that Zeke will have chance to crush the record books. The read option led to a lot of hits on the QB and limited carries for the RBs.
