See, a lot of people are saying the D line looked good yesterday, but I thought they were pretty mediocre compared to this year. Once Bosa was out the only way to bring pressure was blitzing a linebacker or running 3-4 with Lee coming in as the extra rusher. Also, the D-line run support was gone as soon as Bosa left. Maybe I'm just being a pessimist, but I was left wanting for more from our young guys yesterday.
You know, I don't deny there is personal responsibility. I also see your point about calling him a d-bag for suing, but imagine if you were terminated from a job instead of being given a chance to go to rehab and overcome the issue; it makes it difficult for addicts with problems to seek treatment if they risk unemployment (Yes, I do understand football coaching is different and perhaps not as applicable here). You don't have to be sarcastic and condescending about my "books." I'm only making a statement that I believe to be true, and hope that anyone suffering from addiction can overcome as you did. I am also happy that you had the family and friends to support you; it seems that Sarkisian is lacking that, an often important piece to overcoming the issue.
I would love to see Winfield here (assuming he interviews well) because the homer in me wants to see a Buckeye Alum start his career. Maybe Galloway and Winfield could tag team it.
Yeah, let's chill out on the demonization of people suffering from addiction. As a current medical student I can just say that addiction is difficult, complex, and really tough to overcome. Statements like yours can make it really tough for people with addiction to overcome it.
This is the stupidest thing I've read. As if tweeting makes athletes perform poorly...taking 20-30 minutes a day to spend on twitter is not gonna break your ability to play. I know Tyvis personally and the guy doesn't drink or party ever (despite all of us asking him to join us), and puts more work into football than I ever imagined someone would have time to do. Get off your high horse.
Yeah, I'm pretty certain Herman could've called into any of the current HC openings and had a good chance of being hired. He already supposedly turned down South Carolina.
I think a lot of people here are over valuing a conference title. The committee is tasked with finding the 4 best teams, but if there is a toss up then they look at conference championship, head to head match up, etc.
A 2 loss Florida is not in. The only possible 2 loss team in would maybe be Stanford.
There is no silver lining. We need this to have a shot at the playoffs.
I would venture to guess that at least CM&T would agree with the tweet, as would most of the other hosts probably. I agree with the sentiment at least for pass blocking.
Eh, I don't really think it's a stretch. They beat FSU who is better than anyone else we've played this year. They also beat ND in crap conditions and caused the firing of a head coach.
I'm convinced that Tyvis is the most clutch player of all time. He makes stupid mistakes all the time, but when it counts he's always there making the play.
We all know the solution is to tweet him now. That'll help. /s
You would think at some point they'd just hire a coordinator from a B1G or SEC team, and be able to put up a defense with a monster offense, thus becoming a complete team ready to dominate the Big 12. Instead they seem content with the shoot-outs. I guess it is the Wild West though.
Oyster told me or I told him? Sorry friends for being a bad 11W member :(
Lolwut. Who called anyone stupid...I'm just saying let's keep the enthusiasm here at 11W and not be obnoxious at other websites, which I've noticed a fair amount of fans have been.
It's a great site, but I've seen a lot of people posting it around on other websites. I just think waiting a bit until after the game might be wise.
Hove, I completely agree. I laughed and felt great when I saw the loss. But going on other message forums (like reddit/r/cfb, etc.) to rub it in everyone's face is taking it a step further. I'm just saying that we can chill a bit now, and when we actually win in November go back to rubbing it in their faces.
No I'm not ass. I also enjoy Michigan losing. But making a website dedicated to Michigan's embarrassment, and then posting it to reddit is stupid when we haven't even beat them yet.
