....and ive been overserved today desk: Thomas rawls will be our offensive mvp next year and we will have the best defense in the B1G. Damn i am looking forward to next week. Go Blue!!
Bellomy will start at QB, with Gardner and Treadwell at WR and Funchess at TE, giving him 3 large and talented targets to throw to.
Jake Ryan will be the best LB in the B1G.
Will be? Already is in my opinion.
WOW! LOL! Ryan, 16 tackles, 1.5 TFL, 0 sacks. Shazier, 59 tackles, 4.5 TFL, 2 sacks, Sabino, 38 tackles, 2 TFL, 2 sacks. Most homer post I've ever read on here.
Your stats are outdated, Ryan had 11 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and 4 TFL yesterday alone. On the season, Ryan has 42 tackles, 7.5 TFL, and 2.5 sacks.

my bad. So what are the updated stats of the 2 Buckeyes I mentioned? Let me guess. Shazier, 90 tackles, 12 TFL, 5 sacks. Sabino, 60 tackles, 10 TFL, 4 sacks? You guys are crazy if you think Ryan is anything better than average. Crazy I tell ya. Scout team material if he's a Buckeye. Sorry to say it.
Doesn't Sabino have a broken leg? You're stupid. Plus Sabino only has 37 tackles with 2 TFL and 2 Sacks. Guy would be scout team material if he's a Wolverine. Sorry to say it.
why are you conveniently forgetting to give the updated stats for Shazier? Must be more impressive than Ryan's stats. And Shazier has been banged up all year.
Shazier makes more mistakes than he does tackles. The kid racks up stats because he plays completely reckless with no technique or knowledge of play. He's probably given your opponent 2 TDs per game on terrible reads or missed tackles. Not a good LB.
Stats are ok but you also have to consider the amount of opportunities. I know this might sound confusing to you so let me explain. You see your two Buckeyes play for a very poor defense. Most people would think this would hurt their stats but that is a mistake. Their stats might even be better than Ryan's' because of it. You see when the Buckeyes give up so many 1st downs they end up on the field more than Ryan. When they give up those 3rd and longs it just increases their opportunities for personal stats. Ryan does not get these chances when he forces opposing offenses off the field.
I hope this helps you with your confusion.
The concept of Michigan's D getting off the field because they get so many 3-and-outs is clearly completely foreign to the Bucknut.
Seriously, when we outscore our B1G competition 89-13, the defense doesn't exactly see the field as much as an OSU defense that has given up 103 points in only three B1G games.
My team will not go to a bowl game - bet the house.
I think you're too quick to dismiss the miracles that O'Brien can do..
he has done a hell of a job so far
Sounds like an introduction about an animal species on national geographic or something
he's a bucknut. they don't understand a lot of things. I think ryan hasn't played in the 4th quarter in couple games this year due to blowouts as well IIRC. could of padded on some extra stats if he plays the whole game, especially in garbage time
