The downside of that would be that the new coach would be a little further behind in recruiting, so they would have to weigh both sides of that equation.

That would be a huge win for Hoke if it happens since The Game is in Columbus.  

I think by that point in the season that our younger guys will have enough experience to hold off any upset bid.  If the game was Up North then maybe UM has a shot, but it isn't.

Plus they are were a top-25 ranked team at gametime.  I know the SEC gets an automatic bounce up in the polls and all that.  Still a good win.

Put me down for yes.  

He could save his job with a victory over Ohio State and Michigan State in my opinion, so he could save his job in theory, but it is unlikely in practical terms.

In my experience, how an individual handles is adversity helps form their character, and is also a reflection of same.  

I wish you the very best.

40 times.

Man, I can't imagine that.  I had a friend who dislocated his shoulder  when he was a young man while wrestling and it led to repeated dislocations over the years until it was finally surgically fixed, but that is not the same as a weight bearing dislocation chronically.  Glad yours is fixed as well.

You must have known exactly what happened the second time even before the diagnosis.  Does not sound like fun.

Soccer probably puts more strain on the knee and ankle joints that football though.  More changing of direction and more continuous running.  Being able to play at age thirty three is amazing in itself.

True.  I actually put his name in the search bar though.  Maybe I didn't scroll down far enough on the results.

Comment 20 Sep 2014

Thanks for the insight.  The guy that I knew didn't have the congenital structural issue like you have, and was good to go the next year.  The injury for him was late in the season.

On a defensive end like Sweat, the stress on the knee is magnified especially during a pass rush.  If you watch the DE when they loop outside to try to get around the tackle, there has to be a lot of stress placed on the knees at that time.  

Glad you got yours fixed up.  I hope it doesn't bother you in the future.

By the way, great screen name!

You have a good point.  It doesn't have to be that Michigan is strong to make a strong conference as long as there are strong teams in the conference. 

The rivalry would cool given enough time if Michigan isn't competitive and that would be a loss.  It is good to get jacked up to play a true rival, and even better to beat that rival if they are a strong team.  That makes sense to me, even though it is a simplistic response.  

Comment 20 Sep 2014

I did a search and didn't see those come up.  I know Sweat may not be really considering OSU seriously but just thought 11W members would want to know.

Thanks for bringing it up.

Do you know if this really is a serious injury long term or not?  

Comment 20 Sep 2014

If he gets kicked off of the team then I would be shocked.  

Maybe after he gets drafted, but not while he is still has eligibility left. 

Comment 18 Sep 2014

The B1G needs Michigan to be strong, and OSU needs them to be strong and remain a strong rival.  If they go belly up that isn't good for us, and the only thing that will happen for OSU if that does occur is that we get less national respect because our rival school is weak.  

Just sayin'...
