Actually, the B1G CG would be # 13.  But lets all hope he gets it against _ichigan on Saturday.  493 yards of total offense in one week?  No worries.  You have to have your best showing against your rival, after all.

I thought he had a veritable ar_y of stray cats defending his turf, not just Starcat.  I wouldn't want to be the one atte_pting to arrest hi_, that's for sure.

Indeed.  I have been sharing the 13 ga_e projections as they related to Heis_an conversations since it is awarded prior to bowl season.  The 15 ga_e projection is as follows:

259/400 passing for 3,625 yards, 45 TDs and 14 INTs.  213 rushing atte_pts for 1,158 yards and 12 TDs for 4,782 yards of total offense and 57 TDs.

Let's not forget who _ichigan's QB is.  Our defense largely contained Tevin Cole_an and Indiana's offensive line, he just broke 2 long runs, which he is apt to do against anyone (and one of the_ was because of a _isco__unication on the D-Line).  _ichigan doesn't have Tevin Cole_an, nor do they have an Offensive Line of any sort of respectability.  I was worried about _ichigan's defense until Frank Clark got dis_issed, but not really any _ore.  We should win by 30 points.

I'_ okay with the_ in the Power Rankings -- They are not intended to be a real ranking, but rather, how they are CURRENTLY playing.  When you _ake a ranked opponent your b*$%^, you deserve to be recognized for it, even if it is Bert.

I didn’t honestly know who the opponent was, just prepared the best way I could," Russell said. "And I just told myself whoever was guarding me, I was going to destroy them. So I just tried to do that and it landed good for me.

This quote actually bothers me a lot.  Why was Aaron Craft as good as he was?  Because he studied the film of each opponent.  He knew all of their tendencies and idiosyncrasies and exploited them.  If you think you are just going to destroy any opponent without film study and knowing who they are, the Big Ten is going to eat you alive.  Please prepare better in the future...

The fighting Bielema's just curb stomped Ole Miss today, for what it's worth.  It was only a matter of time before he started winning games, and they could be a contended for the SEC title next season.  Don't sleep on Arkansas.  Let's just hope they don't beat Mizzou next week.

If 71.4% is an off day, and several of them were dropped...  then...

As for the footwork, it's possible there's some nagging pain in the knee from a few weeks ago.  If so, hopefully that takes care of itself by next saturday.

Comment 22 Nov 2014

There is exactly 1 RB in the country better than Tevin Coleman.  His name is Melvin Gordon.  Coleman was going to get his yards, and the last one was after the game was decided, so you can't really complain too much about it.  

Comment 21 Nov 2014

Maybe JT will score 16 TDs against Indiana tomorrow.  That's the only thing I'm concerned with.

Comment 21 Nov 2014

I wish we would schedule Pitt in the OOC more often.  Another 72-0 victory would be good for the soul.

There were a few times last season where the football team outscored the basketball team in the same week.  With the potential that the basketbucks have this year, though, I wouldn't expect it to happen.  I say that OSU defeats SMU 63 to 57.

Comment 21 Nov 2014

Next Saturday has all the classic makings for an upset.  We have a dominating offense and a rapidly improving defense.  Their offense is a dumpster fire, and their defense, which hasn't been awful, just lost their best player.  Which means they have a great chance to surprise a lot of people!

On a serious note -- and this was definitely true last year -- Michigan has recruited well enough to have athletes that are just as good as ours.  Yes, Hoke is terrible at developing talent and even worse at scheme.  However, in rivalry games, when you have athletes that are equal to each other, expect Michigan to win a lot of one on one matchups that we've typically taken for granted this year.  Combine that with heart in a rivalry, and the fact that they have the opportunity to play spoiler to our national championship aspirations, and you have a solid recipe for a trap game.  And Brady Hoke would absolutely love to give a giant middle finger to everyone on his way out the door, so definitely expect some surprises.

I'm not shaking in my boots or anything, and by all measures we should dominate on 11/29.  However, we can and should take our dear friends from TTUN seriously this year.  But don't expect us to cover the spread.

Comment 21 Nov 2014

Would be great, but I don't think we keep Tevin Coleman out of the endzone tomorrow.  At the very least, he breaks one late in the second half during garbage time.  But I think they score at least a TD before halftime, it's the second half when they are forced to throw when our defense will eat them alive.

Comment 21 Nov 2014

I'm disappointed that it doesn't mention the fact that he uses your running back as a projectile to destroy you with.

Eleven Warriors never seems to be able to get media nicknames to stick.  Just ask Carlos Hyde.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

The only thing I am going to say in this thread is that it deeply saddened me to hear these allegations earlier in the week.

I grew up watching the Cosby Show.  It was one of the cleanest and most real to life sitcoms you could ask for, and it is exceedingly rare to find one like it today (there may be one or two, but not at the same level of quality).  In addition, Bill Cosby had a way about his humor that was clean and hilarious.  You might even say he was a stand up guy (pun intended).

If he drugged and raped numerous women during the '70's and '80's and lied to the world about the sort of man he was this whole time...  that hurts deep.  Was the clean public appearance just a mask to make the thought of rape unthinkable?  It certainly worked well, if true.  Makes me want to vomit.

They should make this in hoodie blanket with sleeves form.  The shruggie snuggie?

Comment 20 Nov 2014

I didn't want to be the first one to ask if he had 3.  I wonder if he ever surprised a girlfriend with that?
