that picture of Hyde in Michigan colors is hurting my eyes
On the iPad it's difficult to get to my account. I hit my account name or the logo and I don't get directed to my account page
Dear Thon Maker,
Please look at Thad's record of getting big men to the NBA:
1) Oden - #1 overall pick. Granted, he hasn't necessarily panned out but that's been because of injuries. However, he's still earned millions off that rookie contract and could win a ring as a backup with the Heat. Not exactly a bad life
2) Sullinger - a legitimate NBA starter and double-double guy
Hell, even Koufas and Mullins made it to the NBA and you seem to have much,much,much more raw talent than these guys had (probably combined)
The first year of the BCS was 1998
To be a top 5 back you have to have more than 1.5 seasons of consistent play. It's not necessarily a knock on Hyde; he had to grow up and sometimes the coaching staff just didn't give him opportunities (although part of the reason was probably said immaturity at times).
To be a top 5 means you're an all-time great. I don't see all-time great when I see Hyde.
Let's not be prisoners of the moment
So that means they'll put their 3 technique & best pass rusher to the field, correct?
Ross- Does MSU's defesnse set is front to the field/boundary or purely off of the offense's strength (ie. the tight end)?
I was hoping for a full Defensive breakdown this week but after that performance last week I guess Ross decided to forget it
If you're seriously afraid of Bollman and his "imaginative" offense then question everything you thought you knew about football.
Surprised Bosa didn't get in on that group Defensive Player of the Game
I say find a new friend because this one is obviously delusional and crazy
If we're undefeated and don't go to the national championship game because of the polls it would be disheartening but I wouldn't call the season a disappointment since there were factors outside our control
If for some reason we lose a game and end up at the Rose Bowl (especially if 2/3 teams ahead of us pick up a loss) then I think you can call it a disappointment since we had more control over things
Wow, I have no memory of this game whatsoever and this was my graduating year, haha
I would imagine that this works primarily for shorter passes as opposed to 5 step-7 step drops (posts, corners, in/out routes, etc)?
How do offenses get around illegal men downfield with the flash screen shown above?
Since the first part of the play is a possible run then the lineman would be moving forward; but normally if there's a pass isn't that illegal men downfield?
Or is the work around because it's a screen pass thrown no further vertically than parallel to the line of scrimmage?
Should we beat Purdue by 31? Absolutely , especially given what we saw on Saturday night against Penn St
But anytime I see a line that huge I stay away ( with an exception being if the Bucks are playing a crappy D 1-AA team. See: FAMU)
Since Beanie was the reason Antonio Pittman left after his junior year it'd be interesting to throw Pittman in this Wells v Hyde ranking
No offense to the people who voted for Hyde but I feel it's an example of getting caught up in the present.
Size,speed,power, and game breaking ability all go to Beanie.
Ask yourself this- who is a threat to take it to the house from anywhere on the field? There are more than a couple times when Hyde gets caught from behind when he has open space in front of him showing a lack of top-end speed/burst whereas Beanie took those same runs for 6.
Yes, Beanie had durability issues but he could get you 6 from anywhere on the field
regarding Roby- I'm not sure it's conclusive there was helmet to helmet. It may have appeared close but I don't remember the helmets actually making contact
am i the only one that finds it unnerving to honor a guy who was an accused child molester ?
great find on the tim fox back flip
2009 hands down,without a doubt since it was for a trip to the Rose Bowl
This certainly isn't the worse OOC schedule we've ever seen but it makes me go "meh."
Virginia Tech is a quality program and a team definitely needs to prepare for and NIU is a solid MAC school and is finding a good amount of success lately.
What makes me go "meh" is W Michigan and Hawaii
My feeling on scheduling is :
1 upper tier team from a BCS conference
1 obvious cupcake
1 middle of the road team. I'm thinking a decent MAC school or a team from a non-automatic BCS conference
compared to years past this is by far not the worse
