  • We couldn't have run the ball that well against anyone last year, App State or not.  I was pleased with the O-line, we did exactly what we needed to do, some areas to still work on, but that's exactly what every other team in the country is faced wi…
  • Hoke has constantly done this "if the game were today/tomorrow" stuff in fall camp, it means literally nothing.  The starters he talks about today will change by next Saturday and the starters next Saturday may not be the starters heading …
  • MF4L: the OL doesn't require seniors, it requires experience, it requires not trotting out guys a year or two years before they should see the field.  It's hardly theory to state that OL is one of the most important positions for guys to develop int…
  • It's a preseason list so obviously whatever, but I found the QB "potential choices" mentions amusing:    Quarterback A: 208/345 (60.3%) for 2960 yards, 8.5 yds/attempt, 21 TDs, 11 INTs  Quarterback B: 223/380 (58.7%) for 2755 yards, 7.25 y…
  • (Quote)   Right, that's why Michigan State played 12% of their incoming freshmen last year, Michigan's most recent recruiting class had 50% see the field.  But sure, keep throwing out platitudes like "coach 'em up".  You have to build dept…
  • (Quote)   Agreed, thought this was handled well, like the part in the press release about, and I'm paraphrasing here: "we believe in second chances, but in this case that second chance will not occur here".   Unfortunate that the young man…
  • (Quote) 6 out of the last 8 sure seem to suggest otherwise...
  • (Quote)   I'm not sure you understand how recruiting and development works...  Hoke's guys are just now red-shirt sophomores and juniors on the team, we have count it, ONE senior offensive lineman on the team.  Last year's squad featured more than 8…
  • (Quote)   Whoa!  Let's not little things like objective data cloud our vision here, I've been told for weeks this team "isn't young" and that our coach couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag!  Nobody wants to discuss the veritable chasm…
  • (Quote)   Careful MJ, that doesn't fit the narrative around here!  /eyeroll   Listen, anyone extrapolating an entire season of play from a single scrimmage two weeks before the first game is welcome to do so.  Here's a novel idea, how about we see h…
  • (Quote)   Conjecture is fun! Who coerced him into firing Borges?  I love how he is the all-responsible head coach with whom the buck stops on all decisions and yet when he makes a decision like this, he had to be forced to do it?  Right...
  • (Quote)   Really TK?  Hoke fired Borges, which exactly NOBODY would've predicted before it happened, recall that he brought him along from SDSU.  There's simply no indication that Hoke isn't willing to make changes when changes are necessary.
  • Tough news for Miller. I certainly feel sorry for the individual player but this couldn't happen to a more deserving fan base.  And please spare me the "full strength" non-sense.  Guess what, injuries are part of the game of football as we…
  • Highlights and some presser footage here: [link=http://mgovideo.com/countdown-to-kickoff-2014-day-13/]http://mgovideo.com/count...o-kickoff-2014-day-13/[/link]

  • Braden locking down the RT spot is a pleasant development considering the hype he came in with, hopeful that what we are hearing about Miller beating out Glasgow for center actually holds and that allows us to use Glasgow at one of the guard spots...
  • Ha I forgot we are already scheduled to play Va Tech AND Florida...   I'm hopeful that these won't be series 9-10 years from now, we have a number of openings in the not-too-distant future that might work well:   EDIT: Forgot the change to a 9 game …
  • I would love to see us schedule a home and home with Georgia or LSU... I have a hard time believing it will happen based upon our track record with these kind of things, but let's see!   Head: Virginia Tech and Florida Heart: LSU and USC (just once …
  • So, I know we should all be worrying daily about development on the offensive line, etc, but I think perhaps one of the biggest themes currently flying under the radar this year is that this defense is going to be good.  Like scary good.  There's no…
  • (Quote)   Because that's pretty much what we are.
  • Without rehashing an entire offseason of disagreements, the AD seems to be keenly aware that the situation here was more than a simple turn-around job.  I find that Brandon's message is often poorly delivered despite usually containing a theme or po…
  • Anthony Thomas graduated following the '00 campaign, which was Perry's freshman season.  I'm not claiming that Perry was the #1 overall RB, etc, etc, etc.  Forget the rankings, the point is that sometimes players take a while to transition to the ne…
  • Pretty certain that what they are doing right now is trying Cole out to see if he can find a natural spot in the top 5, they already know Magnuson is going to play, so why not move Cole around and see if he fits the bill?  Supposedly will have thing…
  • How anyone can forecast the career trajectory of any of the freshmen backs after last year escapes me, particularly when you take into account the offensive line play or complete lack thereof in front of them along with the offensive system.  Chris …
  • Harris having to sit out changes the expectations of this wide-receiver unit in no way for me personally; it was already clear that Funchess, Darboh, Chesson, and Canteen were in-front of him on the depth chart.  We could certainly be in a worse pos…
  • I'm still trying to figure out how the re-alignment ended with us having to go TO East Lansing two years in a row as well as back to NW again...   Sitting here in May, I would like to see our defense WIN us some football games this season.  We have …
  • (Quote)   Pretty much exactly as I intended it to be: my take on where we stand and how that affects expectations for this season and the trajectory of where this program is headed.  Didn't proclaim it to be gospel, didn't pull it out of my butt eit…
  • So catching up on threads (I know it's been a while since I've been posting regularly), there seems to be this trend regarding expectations and a "HOW DARE WE" type of attitude that I simply do not understand.  It becomes unendingly tireso…
  • (Quote)   Not sure what overall number of posts has to do with anything, I disagree with your histrionics: I don't think the program is "deeply flawed", I don't think our head coach is "incompetent",  I don't think the leadership…
  • I don't think you can use Jake Ryan 7 months post ACL tear (an obscenely fast return IMO) as an example [;)]   I would actually argue that Gardner got better as the year went on, despite not having a line in front of him to speak of, despite being m…
