"I may be dumb, but I'm not stupid." - Terry Bradshaw

Anything Yogi Berra ever said. A few of my favorites:

  1. "You can observe a lot by watching."
  2. "That place is so crowded, nobody goes there anymore."
  3. "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."
  4. "Always go to other people's funerals. Otherwise, they won't come to yours."
  5. "It's deja vu all over again."

I’m a big war movie buff, so my choices are a bit tilted towards that genre. Two stand out to me:

1. The scene from “The Pianist” where Szpilman plays Chopin for the German officer that finds him in the ruins of Warsaw.

2. The scene from “Schindler’s List” with the girl in the red coat.

Two very powerful, poignant scenes that are impossible for me to forget.

I agree with this, I think the way Sparty is trending helps, plus the history of Indiana/Maryland football being meh. It’s hard for me to get past 8-4. And that is absolute best case. Part of the reason is that Penn State, Ohio State, and even others like Clemson are very very good at getting recruits when they go into NJ/NY and the DMV, so I’m not just going to automatically assume that Schiano is magically going to start convincing kids that Rutgers is a better option than these other heavy hitters.

The whole thread this is attached to on Mgo is basically everyone accusing the poster of this monologue of being an OSU troll LOL

Comment 02 Dec 2019

He said on Twitter after the game that he won’t watch another OSU-Michigan game until they win. I don’t believe it for a second. He’ll be back next year for more and give the same spiel we hear every year, talking himself into expecting a Michigan win.

That being said, can’t wait to hear what he says this week!

I was privileged enough to be at both the Brooklyn Dagger and the beat down last year. I’d have to agree that the Brooklyn Dagger was the loudest roar I’ve ever heard in the Shoe but damn if that punt block last year wasn’t close. The next drive when Michigan was backed up right against the south end-zone was crazy loud. It was so loud that it hurt, my ears were ringing. And then Patterson throws that pick, things escalated even more from there. What a day

55-14. A close game would actually be disappointing given how each team has performed this season.

Comment 23 Oct 2019

It seems a bit early, I would like to see things unfold for the next few weeks/monitor Tua's injury. That being said, the amount of disrespect to Alabama on this forum is shocking. It's Nick Saban. And that roster is as stacked as any in college football. I'm pretty sure Alabama hasn't lost a game by double digits at home since he became the head coach.

My best friend is a NW alum. He loves Fitz, but his one qualm is that Fitz's nepotism gets the best of him sometimes. Case in point with the offensive coordinator. The play-calling, especially on early downs, is terrible, and they don't ever adjust their scheme to fit their personnel. This year is especially bad.

I honestly have a hard time seeing Northwestern scoring in this game. Their offense is truly that bad. OSU 45-0

For the fantasy football players in the room, the ESPN Fantasy Focus podcast is awesome. Those guys are right a lot more than they're not.

Comment 09 Oct 2019

He's 5th in the Big Ten in rushing?!? LMAO we really are spoiled

Comment 08 Oct 2019

I would rather have played like this over the first 6 games than look like garbage. I don't think they are going to automatically drop off just because they've been blowing the doors off teams. It's also a product of your coaching staff, and I'm not worried about the coaches letting the players lose focus as the season goes on.

Comment 07 Oct 2019

While I am very confident Day would not take this job, and the "But Ohio State is a top 3 job in college football!" crowd is correct, people have to understand that the NFL is a whole other beast. To some coaches, any NFL head coaching job is better than the very best college football head coaching job. Those coaches are the "NFL" guys. I'm not really sure if Day is one of those guys, only time will tell. But I can't imagine him going to Washington.

Comment 26 Sep 2019

Here is the push back I will give about this comparison: we already know what this Michigan team is. 2016 Penn State was a mystery. We know that Shea Patterson is not good. We have a fairly large sample size that proves it. He is not magically going to get better, I don't care what anybody says. 2016 was Trace McSorley's first year as the full time starter at Penn State. He turned out to be one of the best QB's in the conference. But he was a mystery coming into that season, and it took some time for him to get his sea legs under him.

Michigan doesn't have a Saquon Barkley. Saquon exploded in 2016, and we knew he was pretty talented from his performances in 2015. There is nobody like that on Michigan's offense. Yes, Michigan has oodles of talent at WR, but we know they aren't going to use them effectively (see; Patterson, Shea). Saquon is not walking through that door.

Joe Moorhead was extremely successful as an offensive coach at Fordham before James Franklin discovered him. What we didn't know was how well he would adjust to the Big Ten, but we knew he had been successful calling plays and installing offenses before. Gattis has never called plays before. Saban let him walk instead of giving him the keys to the offense. That is very telling to me. He's no Joe Moorhead.

We have seen all this from Michigan before. They won't completely collapse, but 9-3/8-4 is pretty much a train wreck when you think about their asinine expectations coming into the season.

Comment 26 Sep 2019

Let's get this straight: Chase Young is a Pro Bowl level player right now. His moves off the edge remind me a lot of Khalil Mack. Extraordinary power and he couples that with the ability to slip right under and around an offensive tackle's block in an instant. Even if the best lines in the Big Ten double him, he is a major issue. I could see him being in the 3 sack neighborhood against Rutgers alone. That would give him 7 games to get 4 more sacks. So yeah, I like his chances. Kid is the real deal.

Comment 24 Sep 2019

I was there in 2013 when Northwestern was actually ok and it was the College Gameday game. 75-80% of the crowd was OSU. ^ This is an accurate statement lol

Comment 24 Sep 2019

Ohio State is no worse than 3 if they run the table, in any scenario. It really is that simple. But I agree, lets beat Nebraska and then move on to the next game.

Comment 23 Sep 2019

Honestly, I might be a little too forgiving with that scoreline the more I think about it.
