    This is pretty remarkable. What an example of hustling. Shawn Crable gets knocked down in the process of nearly taking down Michigan State's speedy running back Javon Ringer on one sideline, then runs him down 72 yards downfield on the other side of the field. Are you kidding me?

    I haven't seen hustle like this for a long time (check 40 seconds into the video):

    BTW, this play was instrumental in Michigan winning by three points this past season; State couldn't punch it in on this series and had to settle for a field goal. They lost by three points.

    Ringer, although he had major knee surgery, is still capable of doing 4.35 in the forty. There's no way in the world a linebacker should be able to catch him like that.

    Let's hope Crable doesn't do this, though:

    How Crable played against guys who will be working this summer at Home Depot is irrelevant. The NFL competition and specificly the NE Patriots is SO different a level.

    Although you probably think you are witty, you obviously don't know your Big Ten football.

    As Bill Parcells would say, "You don't know what you're talking about."

    Javon Ringer is a player who projected to be drafted just after the first round if he escapes injury and can show the excellent speed he possessed before the knee injury. He's already being talked about as a Heisman candidate, although of the sleeper variety.

    Running him down like that was not an easy thing to do. All heart and hustle.

    I am witty. DookFish don't do paragraphs. Pissah don't do Girly Ball.

    You can say what you want about the competition, but that play says some important things. It shows great speed for a big guy, and excellent hustle where he refused to give up. Be as witty as you want, but that's a great play, on ANY level !!

    I'm surprised the obvious Benjamin Watson tackle of Champ Bailey comparison hasn't been made yet.

    I bet Troy Smith didn't scramble much after that hit.........That wasn't exactly "real late".

    More accurately: he tried to tackle Ringer near the LOS and failed, got up and pursued Ringer, got knocked to the ground (again), got up a second time and chased him down.

    I do agree that that says "hustle" in spades. :rocker:

    Of course if he had done his job at the LOS, he would not have had to run 70 plus yards down field.

    Of course we have lot's of star LB's who occassionly don't do their job and I don't find myself able to picture ANY of them getting their scramble on like that.

    In college? I see it all the time in college, although most are not 70 yards, you may need to watch a few more college games, especailly mid level conference games.

    C'est la vie. After all, Welker's embarrassed more than his fair share of LBs.

    The Big 10 is not nearly as good as the SEC.
    And an SEC team is not nearly as good as any NFL team full of backups & ST's.


    Not trying to take away from his abilities, but comparing how a player does against the Big 10 with NFL competition .... seriously?

    You are right. There's no point in scouting college games because they are meaningless. Next season BB and SP will just conduct the draft purely based on measurables. What the player has shown to date on a football field is irrelevant.
