A lot of reasons but most of it I believe is he's from Columbus and sees everything through a lens of how you're doing against Ohio State.

The rules change by season but they're generally related to either Rutgers or Rutgers-like behavior. The original joke was there are 13 conference rooms (get it?) and then some teams lost to Rutgers and they lost their conference rooms. The owner of the building then asked us off air why Wisconsin hasn't lost theirs because they lost to Rutgers in basketball that one time. So we had to make it clear that you get your conference room back at the start of each year, however Ohio State and Maryland already lost theirs in the preview pod to scandals.

Dude, take a hint. I don't want to ban you for provoking a religious argument on the site.

Jeff Brohm - where does he go after the season?

Meant for the board

On behalf of a large number of very good people who read (and some who write for) this site, I would ask that you please not compare Jesus to Mark Dantonio.

Don't forget 3-0 (one of them a shootout) in hockey.

I don't know which insider you're referring to. I was getting multi-contradictory info on Gary this week and wondered if maybe the program was putting out false information to figure out who their leaks are. When we're confident about something we'll post it.

Save your pearl-clutching for when people get damaged not a rival's turf.

Big news drop? 

Too clicky. My guess is Tarik black has been practicing with the team again. I'm not an Insider

I'll fix. Don't know how that happened.

"level-headed" means his facial expression literally is the same whether his guys just committed a stupid penalty or his guys just got a TD on a fake field goal.

You are really damaging our narrative about State fans with these extremely reasonable and informed takes, man. I hope you stick around here after this week.

That is kinda weird Karpodiem created a new account to make it more obvious he is building an M film collection. Perhaps he meant to post on one account then switched to the other and didn't realize it had already posted?

10/17/2018 - 10:18pm Quick thoughts while Foe…

Quick thoughts while Foe Film uploads since I just charted all of PSU and IU:

1) They do an interesting A/C gap blitz twist instead of the usual double A gap blitz. This happened in the northwestern game

That's been in the playbook for a long time. The Double-A got famous because of that one year but A/C gap blitz is a standard of quarters defenses since those are the common gaps for the MLB and SAM (they just flip their normal gaps)

2) TE routes down the middle seam looks like something I can see them running more of

Lol they would if they could. They can't protect Lewerke enough so they've been running max pro or just going 4-wide (when they go 5-wide they get smoked)

3) They haven't really thrown the ball deep very often but I fully expect them to take a few pages out of ND's playbook and test Hill deep. Double move by Felton Davis should be expected

Again, an OL problem. Don't trust the tackles enough to dial up long plays, don't have the consistency with their under-center game to set up long throws. Their best run play is Lewerke's speed option, which as play-action converts to a rollout.

Thanks! Wish i had this copy instead of the B1G's crummy ass pixelated stream when I did the FFFF offense.

I had a bit that I deleted because the article was getting long about what happened with the FS, but since my bit was about breaking tendency and that was just a dumbass play by a terrible safety I didn't feel the need to belabor it.

I'm not getting off this train he can.

I didn't know that had happened. The whole podcast is up on our podcast feed now. It looks like our stream was cut off at that point.

The trick is to turn the damn output for the stream down to level 2/20 on the Soundblaster. Our headphones are at 14 and 16.

We learned this years ago but new podcast guy and when we ran into difficulties last week I forgot to do my normal checkthrough of his settings.

Thanks for the assist here. I made some updates to the post.

Ha, going to a game with a kid could be its own post.

  1. Every person needs to have a ticket even an infant in arms. Fortunately they haven't started charging for babies still in the womb yet.
  2. I'd recommend getting a seat near the exit and on the aisle in case they need to get up.
  3. You can bring in a few baby essentials in a big ziplock bag. If you're worried about what to put in there, ask any person with a 2nd child what they stick in their purse/cargo pocket on their way out the door now that they're not insane first-time parents anymore.
  4. Until they're 10 don't expect too much understanding of the game. The cheers are the cool parts. The wave will blow their minds.

You can extrapolate that I only got to see him a few plays and I don't cyan guys until I've got at least 10 plays where I saw them doing something good, bad, or indifferent.

I noticed right away but we had a site issue this morning that was preventing me from making any changes that took less than 2 seconds. It was insane.

Shhh. No. Nobody parks by Burns park. It's terrible. Everyone should stay away from Burns park. Especially Granger. Icky sticky things get on your car on Granger. Also they will ticket and tow you 1/5 times. Everyone stay away from Granger and what do you mean you recognize my car I'm sure Ann Arbor has hundreds of blue subarus with a helmet sticker and a box of HTTVs in the back seat.

Gary's mom reads the blog, ergo he's heard he lost his shield, ergo he's mad about it. Let's see what mad Gary does this weekend against the best OT in the league.

How to explain the difference between Magnus's site and this site.

Works in a comment, not as a thread.

Pretty big deal. Their backup WDE is a redshirt freshman walk-on who started the first two games and was not good.

I think that has a lot to do with the kind of passing they do. They pass on 3rd and long a lot.

Brian told me, in public, not to rip on opponents as much after I wrote about how SMU is terrible in many facets. This is a top 10 offense.

10/11/2018 - 10:24am Well we have their old S&C…

Well we have their old S&C coach.

The way they do it though is they have a large swath of Middle America to recruit from that hasn't been professionalized like the coasts and the South and the industrial side of the Midwest. Michigan has lost a lot of talent to players who transfer to big programs out of state, and the high schools have sent most of their talent to the big in-state programs. It's the same story around most of the country, and with 99% of high school talent filtered into about 1,000 schools the recruiters and the bagmen can sort through and get each according to his station.

Much of Wisconsin's recruiting comes from smaller schools because the small schools haven't sent their talent to get noticed. Wisconsin has all of those connections to themselves. Maybe half or more of their coaches played for Barry Alvarez.

They also have a large Polish population in Northern Wisconsin that has taken to football on a cultural level that you rarely see outside of the Deep South. The Watts come from there, as do all those weirdly named offensive linemen and linebackers they get. Wisconsin has that community virtually all to itself. It's not worthwhile for the rest of the country to try to scour all these farm towns and logging communities for talent that's been raised since birth to dream of playing for the Badgers then the Packers.

They also don't have any lower competition. The MAC is concentrated in the Rust Belt, and the small schools around Wisconsin don't offer full scholarships, so they get a bunch of walk-ons (e.g. Jack Cichy) who in Michigan might have been a Michigan State or Western Michigan star.

Iowa has similar connections around its state. The amount of talent in the Midwest is significant, but so diffused that scouts don't notice until it's too late for a rankings leap. If they got the same amount of attention that the Southern kids get I bet Wisconsin's classes would be ranked around 15 or so every year. However if they got that much attention they probably would have a lot more offers than Wisconsin.

i fixed your formatting issues. For future reference, remove all <span> because that doesn't play well with our site. Youtube embeds should be 100% width and 405 height.

Right now we're running a test through Google where they place ads in spots they find on our site and report back how well they're doing. Obviously ads inside comments are not something we'll keep regardless of what numbers they generate.

As I have told people before if you see that little blue triangle in the upper right corner the ad was served by Google based off of your interests and search history. If you have been searching for sex toys to be shipped to your office, or how to delete text messages that are subject to FOIA, Google is going to assume this is the kind of thing you want.

Now we all know you're a sicko.

i just literally ran into my office when i saw this posted. Thank you. There's a new company that replaced T3 Media and they are just as voracious as the last few companies used to be about laying claims on things. I had to go several rounds with them a couple of weeks ago over my Neck Sharpies upload.
