To be honest, I don't mind seeing things like this. Everyone did a pretty good job of keeping their cool, and we just had a little pushing and shoving. Added some color to the game without getting ugly.

That being said, you're always one swing away from a UC-Xavier situation.

Does it really matter how much is spent on students? More money does not equal a better education. Is Buffalo close to us? Are our admissions standards being lowered?

Don't think so.

Comment 30 Nov 2013

Why can't we just put people on the edges and trust our base D not to get gashed by their awful running attack? 

These clowns literally just running gimmicky screens back and forth across the field.

Comment 03 Oct 2013

As much as the schadenfreude is nice, rules like this are still INCREDIBLY lame and unfair to athletes. Keep in mind what happened to use with the tatgate nonsense. I seriously doubt Ha Ha Clinton-Dix came from an upper-middle class background and demonizing college athletes for taking money is a complete joke.

Comment 25 Sep 2013

This idea that students aren't "real fans" when they leave at halftime or early is a joke. Students bring it to the max when it matters, i.e. against any team that's semi-decent or in any big game. You honestly expect students to hang around past halftime during the early September noon games when they've been baking in the sun for 2.5 hours in 95 degree heat? During a drubbing of an FCS or MAC team? Students pay good money to both attend school and attend the games. The fact that they even show up in force to the clowny, joke games early in the season is testament to that dedication.

If you want to blame anyone, blame the athletic department for scheduling Noon games in extreme heat against garbage opponents while consistently raising the cost of tickets year in and year out. Blame the other Big 10 schools who can't figure out how to recruit and put a competitive team on the field. I honestly do believe that we have the best fans in the country, but you are really trying the patience and wallets of said fanbase when you expect them to get hyped week in and week out when they schedule is filled with creampuffs and the games are noon kickoffs.

Just got back from the Cincinnati St. Xavier- Indy Ben Davis game, which St. X won 34-7. Justin Hilliard was a force all night. He had at least 1 sack, an INT that he returned roughly 30-40 yards, and a forced fumble on top of numerous tackles. He has really filled out his frame over the off season as well.

I seriously hope Urban makes this guy a priority because he was playing like a grown man against one of Indiana's best teams as a junior.

Comment 16 Aug 2013

Guy looks great but that level of competition is yikes. I trust in Urban though, and there's no doubt he's a legit burner and I'm excited with what we can do with him.

Comment 14 Jun 2013

Nice to see Urban hitting up Cincinnati hard. I just watched Hilliard's highlights from his sophomore year, was making plays/reading defenses well against the best competition in the state. To be 15 and making those types of plays against Iggy/Eds/GCL competition is no joke.

Comment 07 Apr 2013

Lot of those highlights were against the highest level of HS competition you are going to find in America: X, Colerain, Elder, etc.

Reminds me a little of Luke Kuechly coming out of HS, not a lot of hype, under the radar, lax player, lot of room to build. Maybe not as fluid, but hopefully he has a similar career.

Man Shazier looks like a little kid in that picture, and he's huge. Curtis Grant looks like a monster, let's hope he plays like one this fall.

Comment 01 Mar 2013

Can't help but think that our recent D-line hauls in the past two classes are going to impact who we get in 2014, but this is a great problem to have. As long as Michigan doesn't get Hand, I'm OK if he doesn't sign here simply because we've gotten Washington, Spence, Bosa, Schutt, etc. in the past two classes. We've got great depth at D-line, they just have to show that they're ready for primetime next season.

Comment 27 Feb 2013

Really wouldn't mind seeing a true freshman get a start at LB. If all things are equal between someone like Curtis Grant and Mike Mitchell, give Mitchell the nod.

Comment 25 Feb 2013

I think the better point to make is that people shouldn't take the 40 time too seriously. It's too fun of an event, too much of a spectacle, and too far ingrained into the football-watching populace to change. It's fun to watch if nothing else. I'm sure coaches/GM/decision makers know how to balance the 40 time with game speed in making decisions (minus the departed Al Davis).

Don't touch the event, it's too fun.

Comment 23 Feb 2013

Noon games are the absolute worst for a student. No one wants to wake up at 10am hungover so they can go stand in the sun for 3-4 hours. So many people gave their tickets away/didn't go just because of Noon starts. The crowd is absolutely dead at this time.

My friends actually set up a Rule in 2008, known as the Boeckman rule, that dictated that during noon games we would leave the game whenever Boeckman entered the game to replace TP (barring injury). This was changed once Braxton began starting to the Bauserman Rule. This resulted in multiple first half/halftime bounces from the Shoe. To prevent this, don't have noon games and never play a Bauserman.
