If his mouth wasn't open, I'd go with the "harmless fist pump."

Comment 21 Oct 2014

Josh Perry lost his discipline several times in both halves, and missed a couple of tackles for first downs.

Raekwon McMillan looked good when he was out there.

Comment 21 Oct 2014

Not trying to contradict Urban, but how much better could the offense have played, when it comes to scoring?  I say, not much (excluding blowout, substitution time which didn't attempt a pass).

After re-watching the game, there was the point where OSU was up 21-7, had two false starts which resulting in a punt.  Other than that, previous to JT's last possession where we turned the ball over on downs early in the fourth quarter, we scored TDs every possession (JT should have been on the bench, as Cardale needs passing attempts). 

Sure there were some poor passes that JT didn't connect on (two in the punt possesion), and a couple of others like the one he didn't connect with Dontre, on.  However nearly every possession resulted in a touchdown.

Comment 20 Oct 2014

I would after watching the Rutgers game.  While I'm not really complaining about their play, they sure didn't have many sacks against a "traditional pro-style offense."  I was expected Bosa to get 3 sacks and a couple of TFLs.  I fully expected to get 5-6 sacks for the game, with 4-5 coming from the line.

Of course the Personal Foul right before the half was probably the real reason Meyer was not happy with them.  More than once our guys were sucked into some late smack talk.

I'm not hatin' on Dontre, the kid is a good player.  But a lot of his speed is "visual."  If you watch him run, he takes really short steps, and pumps his arms really fast.  I would surmise that gives him excellent acceleration, but his top end speed isn't' so dazzling.  i was at the Spring Game, and before he let up in the student races, he was getting beat. 

I would love to see his vision improve on his Kick Returns.  Granted Punt Returns are hit and miss based on the blocking, but would be expecting him to give us more 1 and 10s at the 35, rather than the 25.

If that is the only negative thing he did, no.  Perhaps some community service at a battered women's shelter for an afternoon would be enough.

In the context of all of his recent transgressions (i.e. sexual assault), yes it does.

Comment 14 Oct 2014

What is to be gained?

  1. Experience for our young players (95% of our offense)
  2. More film to study for MSU.
  3. More chances for our OC to flex his brain and expand his play calling.
  4. More entertainment for us on Saturdays.

Really, looking at the B1G, it has looked like this since Tressel was squeaking by teams in 2002.   Outside of OSU, the league is really a handful of teams, year-in, year-out (new members not included): 

  1. _ichigan (not recently), so MSU is taken it's place.
  2. Penn State
  3. Wisconsin
  4. Iowa occasionally

So basically each year if we didn't overlook any teams, we were expected to cruise through Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Northwestern, Purdue. Then we were to expect a challenge from Iowa, Wisconsin, and MSU.  Then _ichigan and Penn State were supposed to be tough games.

I'll take the February 2014 version.  Props to her for her dedication and hard work, but you should not be able to see the cartilage between the ribs.

Comment 14 Oct 2014

And these are the 6 that we know about.  Is it safe to assume that there are other, unreported things that happened?

Comment 28 Sep 2014

BamaMike, you're a rational poster, and I have always enjoyed reading your comments; even when they are not hassling the SEC.

Teams should get what they deserve in the rankings. I can't believe SC was #13 after that TA&M beating at home. Then to get beat by the Mizzou at home, SC should fall out of the top 25. Then to watch Georgia struggle to put away Tennessee... 

Comment 28 Sep 2014

Which doesn't make any sense, because OSU = mouse clicks. Also I'm confused because last week there were several headlines about Wisconsin's record breaking rushing yards. 

Comment 28 Sep 2014

Herman calls too many QB runs. I know it's part of the spread offense, but he needs to call more screens (tunnel or bubble) and a few more options. The shovel pass on the option would take the place of a lot of the runs. Barrett is not Braxton. 

Comment 28 Sep 2014

It was a panic situation so I'm not upset with him, but wouldn't intention grounding be better than a running sack? 10 yards plus loss of down didn't matter with less than 90 seconds to go.

While we are on this subject, how do you snap over the head and out stretched arms of a 6'6" QB? 

Comment 28 Sep 2014

I agree with everything you said, but sadly came to this conclusion games ago. His physical tools made him dominant in high school, but apparent lack of vision has held him back in college. 

Comment 23 Sep 2014

To me, this is more damning than anything else, because all the fans said Harbaugh lied, now they clamor for him:

"I've heard guys give excuses and said Jim Harbaugh lied about what Michigan steers you in, as far as where you go as a degree. That's the farthest thing from the truth, because I was accepted into Michigan in the engineering school, and they took me out of it and put me in LS&A. That's a fact. So before people talk about what Michigan will and won't do, they took away your dreams. I wanted to be an engineer. It just so happened that I graduated from the school of business. … Michigan has never talked about Michael Taylor being a Michigan business school graduate."
