I would think its JT who has the biggest chip on his shoulder.  This was HIS team and those were HIS B1G records last year before he got hurt.  Now his starting job is lost and he KNOWS he can play at a high level and lead this team.  Cardale may have a chip but he is still starting so....

Nobody has mentioned Conley and I think he has Ben the biggest surprise by far on D and playing like the next great DB that OSU always seems to churn out

Agree very disappointing.  We knocked their QB and leading NCAA rusher out midway through the game and still couldn't put them away

Willoughby missed the subsequent FG after the Miller penalty.  Also a big play was Bell missing the punt being downed at the 1yd line.  IU drove right down the field 80yds and scored a TD

I thought this was Bosa's best game . The whole Dline was just unblockable in the second half.

How refreshing to have a new crop of big men that look like they've hit the weights hard and look ready to play.  One of the criticisms I've had in the past is it doesn't look like some of the guys lift weights and then they get pushed around by the likes of Michigan St late in the season.  Didn't/Haven't see much strength development from the likes of Amir Williams, Sam Thompson or Marc Loving in their years here.

 Particularly in Lovings case I think he lost playing time because of his lack of strength.  Too many times he would get pushed around under the basket and he wasn't strong enough with the ball when driving and would get it stolen.  Loving isn't particularly fast or quick so if he doesn't make up for that with lower body strength then he becomes a liability on defense

Grandstaff was recruited for his outstanding shooting ability.  Kam Williams was touted as an outside threat when he was recruited but was largely inconsistent last year overall though he is not shy about shooting.  

I think KBD is going to surprise this year.  He hit several clutch 3's last year late in B1G/NCAA tournament games and I thought overall he was the best shooter on a team that needed shooters!  However I don't think he looked to score enough and often deferred to the upperclassmen.  He has incredible length(7"2 wingspan) and with an added year in the weight room should see his production improve.

Probably a misclick/typo as MSU might be a top 5 pick to win the title but not TTUN

Tiger in his prime still had lots of tournaments where he finished out of the top 10.  Rousey and Tyson completely dominating physically and psychologically.  Same with Shaq:  just physically imposing and unstoppable.  Shaq was the most dominant player of his generation.

I'll be watching it.  I usually order the PPV and bet on each individual fight.  Rousey is like -1600 and I'll still bet on her

I only bet UFC.  Not big on betting other sports but it's fun to order a UFC eventand have a bet on every fight on the card.
