While it is an over-used phrase, I still see Marshall, fumble risk and all, more of a slot/ get-him-in-space receiver.  He lacks the size and the WR chops to go up and grab long passes like Devin Smith did and others before him.  To cast Marshall as a deep threat WR is miscasting him IMHO.  Let's find other ways to use him -- fumble risk and all.

No.  It was when the score was 34-20 and the D could put the game away, only to allow IU's 2nd team quarterback to run nearly untoched for a TD with him laughing with his teammates afterwards on the sidelines.  A QB that no OSU high school talent evaluator would ever think to look at.   That play "out-disgraced" anything the Offense did.

Comment 04 Oct 2015

I hate to burst your bubble, FLA, but your praise of this D is exaggerated.  It doesn't take too much imagination to realize that against an elite Offense, they won't stand a chance.   They have been gashed on and off again by teams this season that won't even get a whiff of a meaningful post season.  

No offense....but you might want to take a breath before evaluating them.  Has the Offense put them in bad spots - yes.  On this we agree.  But the final TD run by Diamont was nothing short of laughable for all the wrong reasons. 

Comment 04 Oct 2015

Lots of focus on the Offense for good reason.  But not lost on that despite the "last stand" by the Defense, they allowed both quarterbacks to gash them yesterday.  The angles Powell and Bell took all day were lousy.  I had thought these guys came to play.....but the entire secondary, including Apple, looked lost and unfocused.  

Against a really powerful, healthy top 5 offense, these guys would be gashed.  We are in denial to think this is an elite Defense as of now.

Because so far this year, Cardale's decision-making has been shit.

I don't trust him either.   Hard to blame Meyer.  He has a QB in the game that makes lousy, irresponsible decisions.  He has so-called skill players who lay the ball on the ground unless their names are Thomas or Elliott.

And he has a QB on the bench who went from being a Heisman caliber QB to a shell of his former self wondering w t f happened to his career.

So.....with that as reality........what would you do?

Comment 03 Oct 2015

Here's a thought?  Worried about the Offense?  For good reason.   How about the Defense?  Count me worried.  

Our DBs?  They hang on to more receivers for dear life than a passenger holding on to a life boat. Please...don't make me laugh.

If you're worried about the D's a bigger worry:  The Secondary.....starting with a certain # 13.  Schooled.   Again.

It depends on what their (ND) record is.  A one loss team and they are "in the conversation".  If they run the table with their schedule and the injuries they've dealt with, they are in the playoff, no doubt about it.  

Comment 30 Sep 2015

Interesting call out on the length of (time in hours) college games these days.   I went to the HI game and came away with the feeling that I could only attend one game per year.  The "in-game" experience due to commercial time outs  has become such a buzz kill for me that I will be happy to watch the games at home on High Def TV. 

The most exciting part about being in the Shoe is the pre-game pagentry, "sight seeing", etc.  Regrettably, with few exceptions, it is no longer the game itself.  For those of you going to this year's night games vs. PSU and presumably,'ll disagree and I don't blame you as those will be crazy scenes.  But I promise you,you will want to strangle the official in the red hat until he gives the Ref the signal to start play.

And opposing Ds, which for  now.....are selling out against the run since neither CJ nor JTB have given them reason to move their Safeties back to protect against the long ball.  

As long as Jones is back-footing long passes and underthrowing them for a jump ball to our WR's you'll continue to see struggles vs. the run.  When Jones starts to burn Defenses with the long ball like he did against Wisky and Bama last year, it'll open up holes for EZE as there won't be as many guys in the box.   I am not an X and O guy like some of you who are coaches or grad assistants, but I can only go by what I have seen on TV and with my own eyes at the 'Shoe.

Comment 28 Sep 2015

I agree!  As a proud BG alum and Buckeye for fellow chest thumping Buckeye fans ought to remember that many, if not most BG fans.....and most other MAC alumnae and fans.... are also Ohio State fans.  Not all.....I don't need to be reminded that many native Toledoans are Michigan fans and there is a pleurality of lost souls in Ohio who are Buckeye haters and always will be.

That said....and especially when BG comes to the 'Shoe next fall, be aware that the BG fan wearing Orange that you are tempted to give a snarky comment a guy like me.....who will root his ass off for the Buckeyes the other 99% of his life.

Anyone pumping this UM team up doesn't have an ounce of football sense.


I'll give you another point of view: Anyone ignoring how well this UM team is playing right now, needs to get their head out of the sand.

Comment 28 Sep 2015

They aren't, but they are sure headed in the right direction.  And at least in my view......even with the loss to a good Utah team fairly noted, TTUN is playing the best football in the Big Ten at this moment.

Comment 24 Sep 2015

I didn't have a problem with it, cuz I just don't take it that seriously.   She is in show biz, after-all.  The more we remember that, the less anyone on ESPN, including Mark May, get on our nerves.  Like I's showbiz, folks.
