Hoyer's ok.  He's not great.  I'm fine with him starting this entire season.  I think Manziel has the ability to be a pro qb, but based on his play from the preseason, he can't run an NFL offense yet.  Until he can do that, he shouldn't start.

Start watching this video at 2:15.  Leaving him in there after that? Jeez.  I felt bad for the kid.  All the stuff about concussions now and they don't even check him out? C'mon.

My issue is that, depsite the browns having highly rated o-linemen individually, put together, they have been average to mediocre as a unit over the last two seasons.  I have no experience evaluating lineman, but how do you have the best left tackle and center, and two highly rated (although young) guys at rt and lg, yet still struggle?

Braxton's game winner against Wisconsin in 2011.

Va. Tech is not that good.  Watching the game last week, other then their TE's and that one fuller kid, they were not more talented then us at any position.  We got outcoached, outplayed, and we made more mistakes.  When you're an average football team, you can't lay an egg against another average team like we did.  Today, VT laid the egg.

While a lot of this true, I don't think that this means that the BIG will never be down forever.  We don't need to win to win 6 straight NC's (although that would be nice) but we there is no excuse for losing to MAC schools regularly.  Biggest problem in my opinion is coaching.  Although we pay our head coaches competitively for the most part, most BIG schools pay their assistants crap compared to the SEC and other power schools (FSU, Clemson, USC, off the top of my head).  Say what you want about bielema, but on paper he was one of the top BIG coaches, and he left a job for life for a 600K pay raise b/c he lost at least one or both coordinators for 3 straight years.  Recruiting is tougher, but when you look at the NFL talent conferences produce, its about even.  The recruiting game is made for the SEC to take advantage of, and is overrated imo.

Whoops. Poor information from a friend of mine. Thanks for the correction.

Comment 02 Aug 2014

It hasn't sold out the big house, they didn't open the whole stadium, just the lower bowl.  so like 40,000, not 110,000/  ITs still pretty cool though.

Birm (or anyone)- how tall is too tall for an offensive lineman? At some point you lose leverage; I feel you rarely see above 6-7 olineman, and he's 6-9 and still growing?  He seems like a great athlete though.

Schembechler was the guy who started that quote I think.  Since then everyone other then RichRod has had Michigan ties for some reason.

Comment 20 Jun 2014

I realize this is an opinion piece, and the purpose of it is to drive conversation, but its never going to happen, for reasons you mentioned in the article.  Money.  Ohio state football makes millions.  Ohio state research makes billions.  If we leave the big ten, we leave the CIC.  And that is where the real money is.

Comment 20 Jun 2014

Miles is too old.  LSU will be his last job.  They'll throw everything at Harbaugh, but probably fail again, before turning to someone else. Maybe Narduzzi?  Not sure if they'll be over their michigan man thing yet.

Krenzel was the perfect tresselball QB.  Smart, Limited mistakes, made plays when he needed too, was just athletic enough to get the job done.  That gameplan against Miami was fantastic; and it was possible b/c he could run well enough to catch their defense off guard.  I'd take Troy Smith over him, but not TP, and I won't compare Braxton to him b/c the offenses are so different.
