He couldnt just accept the offer.  Had to wear them down with body blows first.

Fred Jackson was like Lombardi, only thirstier.

So...if we get Tillman in foul trouble...lights out?

Man, his ankles just healed too.  Dude cant catch a break.

Must win the next 3.  Let the chips fall where they may on the last 2.

We talked about a Tom Brady statue...I want a Zak Novak anuerism statue.

PsU should come with an asterisk.

02/16/2019 - 5:39pm Yeah just finished watching…

Yeah just finished watching.  Since I already knew the general gist of the game I focused on poole a lot.  He did miss two open/easy shots, and I had some really aggressive takes on those drives.  Mostly I saw him standing around a lot.  Seemed like the action was generally on the floor opposite him.  He wasnt cutting/screening much at all.

 

First I thought maybe he was sick/injured, but then he would flash and make one of those aggressive drives.  Maybe it just wasnt his day, but it seemed like it was part scheme and part missed opportunities that worked against his stat line today.  I did like that he facilitated and got some nice assists and kept his head up...so he was engaged mentally.

02/16/2019 - 2:04pm I only watched game tracker…

I only watched game tracker. Cant wait to see this on my DVR later.  But what happened to Poole?  He FG% was atrocious.  He is supposed to be our offensive catalyst, but he seems to be slumping at the worst time.

did he and Teske (until the end) just have an awful day?

02/13/2019 - 11:54pm Golldarnit!

Golldarnit!

02/12/2019 - 11:28pm Look, we played like ass and…

Look, we played like ass and didnt deserve to win.  PsU seemed to get every 50/50 ball too.  Some of it was luck, other was hustle.

 

But those refs were horrible tonight.  How they called Iggy for his 2nd when he didnt even touch a guy, yet they let PSY set illegal screens.  They missed an OBVIOUS double dribble.  It was a shishow of a game all around 

02/11/2019 - 10:20pm Fear the Amish.

Fear the Amish.

02/11/2019 - 3:10pm Not only that, they were…

Not only that, they were PRESSING.  You know Beilein is just going to run out the clock, but you choose to press anyway?   

 

Beat the press.  Throw down a nasty alley pop.  Hear the lamentation of their women.

02/10/2019 - 3:33pm I can see us losing at least…

I can see us losing at least 2 more.  So I am cheering for Purdue to lose 2 more.  

02/09/2019 - 4:23pm No one.  Literally no one…

No one.  Literally no one said we need up tempo.  

02/09/2019 - 2:58pm Totally agree.  I think…

Totally agree.  I think Livers has a lot more potential than what we've seen.  A product of sitting behind Teske and Iggy...but I really like Livers game.  My only qualm is he is a bit foul prone.

Agreed about Happ's benching.  It was crazy.

No, he was Herm

I dont mind statues of living people.  Guys like Woodson and Brady reached a pinnacle others may not reach in my lifetime.  But, I do think we should at least wait until Brady is retired.

 

Would love a Woodson statue of his MSU interception.  Maybe a Desmond Heisman one too.

 

Edit:  maybe a better Dez one is his TD vs. Notre dame.  More unique to him.

Dane fife is a coach at MSU now, so any time they show their bench I get to see that punchable face.

We easily had that amount for Ace.  Hes not even a 5* ;)

02/06/2019 - 9:21pm Absolutely.  For the…

Absolutely.  For the millions they bring in ticket sales, merch, TV revenue and championships....that's a superb ROI.

I mean we are "only" winning by 10 on the road in the Big Ten.  Where did our 20 point wins go?

02/06/2019 - 9:54am Or "Hey guys, turn it on…

Or "Hey guys, turn it on ESPN!  So-and-So is pitching a no hitter through seven!"

02/05/2019 - 10:43pm All year people have been…

All year people have been worried free throws would cost us a game.  Tonight, FTs may have actually made the difference in our win.

With MSU in the Columbus bracket I will feel less guilty cheering for a meteor strike.

The last good video games I played was before my son was born.  Assassins Creed 2 and the first Red Dead (started, but never finished).

We would also have to win the BTT.  

02/03/2019 - 10:41pm Absolutely. 

Absolutely.

Does not appeal to the younger generation.  I found that performance entirely boring.

02/03/2019 - 10:17pm I was waiting for "welcome…

I was waiting for "welcome to atlanta" to start playing.  It was a travesty he didnt participate.

02/03/2019 - 7:39pm Not many yet.  Sorely…

Not many yet.  Sorely disappointed the last few years.

I was a little kid, watching from my grandparents living room.  I nearly let some curse words fly in front of granny.  A paddlin' wouldnt have even mattered after that gut punch of an ending.

02/01/2019 - 9:01pm That's what I've been saying…

That's what I've been saying.  I think we are a top 10 team.  Not number 1.

01/31/2019 - 3:19pm Absolutely.  Harbaugh should…

Absolutely.  Harbaugh should give her a UofM jacket and a ticket for the game in 2 years at the shoe.  Invite her to sit with our parents/fans and tweet about fan experiences.

01/31/2019 - 1:41am The Michigan difference:…

The Michigan difference: covering them in foam first.  Doubt OSU would have done that.

01/30/2019 - 7:02pm Weird guys.

Weird guys.

Might as well.  Poole is bringing back the nut hugger shorts.  Let's bring back the old school look.

I hope Charles Matthews starts doing Free Throws underhanded.

Rec specs. 

LIkely knee pads and elbow pads too.

01/30/2019 - 4:54pm That's pretty much what…

That's pretty much what Northwestern did IIRC, and it's also why Beilein gave Z the green light to shoot 3s, even though he's not making them consistently.  Teams are going to try this and if he can make them pay even 25% of the time that might be a deterrent.

01/30/2019 - 4:52pm Noticed the same about his…

Noticed the same about his left hand.  You couldn't make varsity in our Hs if you couldn't make left handed layups.

01/30/2019 - 4:50pm Beilein seems to be good in…

Beilein seems to be good in that sense.  If you can prove to him something works, he rolls with it.  Whether it's this hook shot, Yaklich's defense, or Zak Irvin's wonky shooting motion.  Ok maybe the last one wasn't a good example.

01/30/2019 - 10:58am Not only that, but he has a…

Not only that, but he has a poor handle.  I dont recall the last time I've seen a player with so much raw athletic talent who gets the ball poked away, loses it on a layup/dunk, etc.  Maybe freshman levert was close.  I hold my breath every time Matthew's dribbles into traffic because it's either going to be a bucket or a turnover.

01/30/2019 - 10:22am Iggy and Poole are the two I…

Iggy and Poole are the two I'm worried about.  

01/30/2019 - 10:16am He actually mentioned it a…

He actually mentioned it a few games ago which caused his color guy to stop.  I dont think Dakich knew what he was saying the first time.

 

Dakich repeated the line last night, knowing EXACTLY what he was saying.

01/30/2019 - 9:55am I'd see Iggy has more of a…

I'd see Iggy has more of a fullback and Teske as your TE.

01/30/2019 - 9:43am Thank Yaklich for the…

Thank Yaklich for the defense.  We have a pretty good set of data that shows throughout his career, Beilein is a less than stellar defensive coach.  What we are witnessing is a 2 headed coaching monster.

 

Credit to beilein for swallowing his pride and giving up the defensive end of the floor.  Credit him for finding Yak....but the historic numbers are Yak's teachings.

Savior Zimpson is right up there with Frames Janklin.  Love it!
