I think it's important to remember that msu should be top 5, Nebraska top 15, and minn top 20 when we play them. That should help when comparing wins. I still think the Bucks need to blow the doors off of Sparty though. It at least needs to be on par with the margin Oregon won by. Maybe a little less because it's a road game.

2 losses would definitely make them more dangerous because at that point they're not getting into the playoff and thus don't really have anything to lose. A one-loss team can start to feel the pressure, especially if OSU starts the game quick. 

Essentially the difference between hunter and hunted.

Do you think playing so many freshmen yesterday will help them when it comes to recruiting?  Obviously they need to play more, but if they're going to burn these redshirts, you have to think they'll be more likely to plug some of these kids in the rest of the way.

I was thinking the same thing. It looks like after the first drives of scripted plays, hackenberg hasn't been very good. They're not that quick. And Akron probably would be up by a TD if anyone on their team could catch. I've seen about 3 dropped interceptions and 7 dropped passes.

He might be. Could be looking at the video board so he doesn't have to turn around, which tends to slow a player down.

Anything on Jordan whitehead?  It was reported after talking to him at FNL, urban pumped his fist as he was walking away. But no one really said much about it afterwards.

Does it make good business sense though. A lot of a linebacker's success depends on the DL getting to the QB or taking on blockers. I don't think it's a stretch to say that OSU is a lot better in that department and should be for the next few years. Also the other LBs you play with affect how you play and I think with Raekwon and Hilliard, that would be more enticing as well.

Another reason to play down the number of commits you'll take is to pressure some kids into committing earlier. If they think the limited amount of spots are being taken, it pushes the timetable. 

I feel like birm or Jordan talked about this working against them in one of the "calm down the massive freakout" posts going on when there were only 2 commits.

I hear everyone they're recruiting for '15 are all going to Kentucky

Interesting that you stopped there because 2010 had 2 DTs in the top 3 and 3 in the top 10. It's all about prospects. If there are DTs better at manufacturing pressure than any of the DEs then they will go quick. But the pure run stuffers aren't going top 5, that you can say with pretty high confidence.

I think the overlooked aspect would be the weather.  It's more difficult to have a track meet in conditions like they faced last year in Northwestern and against Wisconsin.  The SEC and Big 12 can spread it out and run all day because it's almost constantly sunny and dry.  To survive the B1G, a team needs to be able to ground and pound from time to time.  I agree that they need to open it up more, but I also think that it's just a different brand of football.
