Interesting to hear CC say so confidently that Braxton will be the guy and they will be the #1 team.
We won the challenge, but the top of our conference could have played a lot better. Wisconsin will still be a top team through the end of the season and I think we are going to get better and better as the season goes along.
I am really excited about our team for the future. I think it's becoming clearer that Russell will probably end up an one and done, but we still have plenty of talent in this class and the incoming class next year.
They don't need to just load up the box to stop the run, but they do need to stay disciplined. That is one of the weak points in our defense and that comes with the youth. Melvin Gordon loves to cut back and out run the defense to the end zone. Everyone must stay disciplined to keep from taking themselves out of the play.
Louisville is a National Title contender. You have to remember that a very good portion of our team has never played a collegiate basketball game on the road and the first game happened to be at one of the countiries elite programs over the last decade. Their two main contributors are two very good upper classman in Blackshear and Harrell and they have won a lot of games together.
I knew that our team would start slow in the environment, but the key is how they would react. They could have very easily rolled over and lost that game by 40 and called it not their night. This is an OSU team that has a chance to make a real run because they are going to get better and better with more games. They have great role playing seniors and a potential superstar in college basketball in Russell. I think the X factor is going to be Marc Loving because they can be really good if he plays up to his ability. I bet you Tom Izzo and the rest of the conference are more worried about OSU after last night.
Moderate - I went back and watched the Illinios game when he got some extra work in. It prety much confirmed for me what I figure we will see going forward. He threw a couple of really nice balls down the field in that game. He also made a couple of bad reads both running and passing. I have more confidence in him than I would Joel Stave though.
This game is going to come down to what most of this conferences games do and thats the line of scrimmage. Whoever successfully runs the ball better is going to win this football game. I think Herman and Meyer find ways to get points on the board. In the end though its going to be Gordon Vs the Buckeye defense. They have to show up against the run more than they have the past few weeks to win.
Hubbard has to be one of the most hyped freshman during his redshirt season that I have ever seen. It seems like he gets mentioned every week and I can't wait to see him play.
I have never really been bothered by anthing Beau has said, and I guess I don't understand why that comment upsets you? He mentions this site often and points people this direction to read the stories as well. I enjoy his show and he seems to be a solid around guy.
Every time I see this guy's name I always think about the good old days when Rodney Peete was a starting QB a million different times in the NFL.
I blame this on instagram damnit. Is there no auto spell check happening before this goes out on the line? I gurantee that this wouldn't have happened with Exchange-O-Gram.
Ill be glad excited if he picks the good guys, but I have a feeling the drama is hardly over.
I remember Steve Bellisari being able to put some hits on people and we all know he had plenty of chances.
I think our offensive line is still the key. You can bet MSU coaches have seen enough film to think they will win if they pressure JT.
Nick Marshall is a Senior so his salary comes off the books.
Does Mgoblog get the assist here?
I think tonight is Florida State's best shot at getting upset. I am looking forward to watching Lorenzo Mauldin for Louisville chase around Winston. This guy is a great football player if you haven't ever had a chance to see him play. He will be #94 for Louisville blowing plays up all night. His hair is the same color as their uniform too and its great.
Redshirt Freshman Billy Price. I really thought at the beginning of the year that it would be Hale or Underwood at LG. I know the line has had some up and down moments this year, but it will be interesting to see how good he becomes with 3 years remaining.
Wearing the only Miami Marlins hat ever purchased.
My wife makes some type of nacho dip with sausage, salsa, and I think Velveeta cheese. I don't know the exact recipe, but you can get them all over the internet. She makes that and a Buffalo Chicken Dip with Franks Hot sauce. I am sorry I can't be more help with the recipes, but I can tell you there is never any left over of either one.
Beer + High Definition always works for my guests.
It's like a race to see who can get to rock bottom first between the football program and Peppers career.
I hope Barrett is healthy because I think he needs some reps before the MSU game.
That is incredible to have a line that size at such a small school. I can't imagine what those other small schools think when they look over during the pre-game warm ups.
I think the biggest reason he tends to under throw the deep ball is because he waits a couple seconds too long to throw it, but that will come with more reps. He has also thrown a couple deep balls to Devin Smith that were right on the money.
This is unfortunate and I wish him the best. He needs to make the most of this and finish his time here with a degree.
