The question reads "Who is your favorite to win the Big Ten." Hand me my rose colored glasses. My favorite is always the Buckeyes. No defense is going to hold this team from scoring. The DBs will get it right. Their pride is on the line. Who in the hell is the 41% that has MSU?
We have neither of those problems, and that is why you won't see the Wildcat formation
Didn't Jalin run the wildcat against UC?
I think a great deal is riding on the Rutgers game for *ichigan. TTUN went from a favorite of 1 point to being a 3 point underdog. What happens if that TTUN does regroup and lays it on Rutgers? Hoke might be kept until the end of the season IMO. If Rutgers pulls off the win, Hoke will be fired on the bus.
Folks, JackFu just won the internet. There is no more. You may now use dial phones.
It is hard to argue with statistics FG27, and you are right. My belief is in the amount of playing time gives the edge to Dontre. Jalin has not had the chance to get into the flow of the game. Also, why did Urban choose Jalin to run the wildcat? Jalin has QB experience on his side which can lead to multiple threats in the future. But, if you are going entirely on running yards, Dontre should have gotten the nod above Jalin. I love Dontre and I can't wait for him to get even with *ichigan this year for the way that they mugged him last year. We are loaded with offensive weapons and it is a shame that the touches will be limited for all.
Jalin does not go down on the first hit. To me, Jalin has better vision. As many touches as Dontre has had, I can't think of any time that he has broken tackles or been that elusive. Dontre has great speed but he just needs a little more weight and vision.
I agree that we need to keep winning, but to advance in the polls we must win convincingly.
Devin Smith - 92 yards
Remember SM, this happened at PSU. They are not at the top of the list for sportsmanship.
Really! Can't something be done about that. I can't decide between Asian or Russian.
It is hard to believe that we have a 6'1", 240 lb. H back in Noah Brown. That is El Guapo size. This gives the position a lot more diversity.
"Fondly" had different meanings to me. Hoke the joke as the bumbling idiot that things did not go right and saw the team get worse. I think Brandon can take a bigger bow for this than Brady. For RR, it truly is fondly. The stiff upper lips at *ichigan could not get on board and support RR. RR was innovative in his offense and other college coaches tried to emulate his offense. *ichigan just was not the fit for RR and it was lucky for him that he got out of Dodge. If *ichigan thought RR was an embarrassment, I don't know what you would call the circus that is Hoke/Brandon.
I think it is really neat that we had two Corey Browns. One called Philly and one called Pitt to distinguish between the two. Philly has kept his nickname in the pros even though he said that he preferred to be called Corey while at OSU. Good luck "Philly". I think he likes the name now.
VERY! This is Ohio State. Never play timid. Give'em hell Bucks!
I am sure that will figure into the equation, but if the right coach becomes available, money will not be the highest priority. Whatever is best for the university and team will take priority.
Does this eliminate the Harbaughs? It is very difficult to get a good coach that does not have Ohio roots or close association with Ohio football.
My point is, that even though the coaches and a few players may be adults, the vast majority are young men 18-22. I hope I am not in the minority here. Booing does no good and it is does not support the team. Boos directed at refs on bad calls are OK.
Personally, this would break my heart.
Gary Pinkel would be a good choice IMO. He is 62 and might not want to leave MO. at this stage of his life. Hoke has recruited well, so there will not be the rebuilding job that Pinkel had at Mizzou. Gary is a leader and coach that TTUN has not had in several years.
I said yes, but I really feel for him as an individual who truly loves his job. This will be devastating to him and I hope that he immediately gets another coaching job. It is hard to put a finger on exactly what is going on up there. Hoke has recruited well but they are not playing up to potential. Winning would have taken care of the attendance problem. The next AD will not have to come up with gimmicks to fill the stands. It may work with pizza but not football. The cupboards will not be bare for the next coach but they need to get the QB position resolved.
This is really sad when people boo these young kids. Some people say they mean it for the coaches only, but the boos fall onto the ears of players. I don't think the boos will help the team play better. It could have the complete opposite effect by bringing the players down. Please, 11W'ers, don't boo our young team.
I think Desmond has taken notice of *ichigans play and has since dropped them to number 9.
Utes vs TTUN
I really don't care.
Toad1204 had the solution that I stumbled onto accidently. Just go to your user name and drag down slightly. The menu will remain open.
I stated this before on another thread not to long ago but help me from gritting my teeth. I don't like the statement of saying a players name in plural such as the Dontre Wilsons, Jalin Marshalls, Tyvis Powells, etc. Much thanks to all the Andy Vances, Hovenauts, Jeremytwofaces, Squirrel Masters, etc.
