I'd buy a hat and shirt! And wear it when I go to Michigan on business EVERYWHERE!!!!
I'm working on selling my two oldest to buy these tickets! Come on man be a FAN!!! (TIC)
BIG TEN COY is synonymous with the 2nd best coach in the league.
The National Lampoon is alive and well in this thread! LOL!!!!
So, does JT give Joe his first name back?
The QB switch seemed seamless! WOW!
When all the evidence is presented and cross examination allowed, the Pennsylvania jury found for the former assistant coach.
For me that is telling.
This is witty and funny IMHO. May not fully agree but you gotta admit, it's clever.
Good Stuff!!! Myself and our culture could use a big dose of this! IMHO.
And I'd like to see the resolve, focus, and progression seen after the VIiginia Tech loss all the way to the NC. Would be a wonderful deja vu!
Luke Fickle went from zero to hero after LB talent significantly improved. I remember hearing Cooper say that good players make a coach look good. LOL!!!!
We are getting some serious talent, albeit young, in that wide receiver and H back slot and we appear to be getting very, very capable passing quarterbacks to augment that talent. Further, the OL talent coming in and developing is nothing short of amazing IMHO. Add all that up and we will be likely singing praises of our passing attack in the years to come, I suspect.
Losing Corey Smith hasn't helped. This guy could cut and gain a step and he had wide receiver hands basically.
KJ Hill has been injured a lot. I can still see him catching everything with one hand in practices. His lack of health might have taken away a truely gifted receiver for this season.
I also wonder, although unproven and not a WR in high school, what would Torrence Gibson might have brought? I like having a tall wide receiver who can jump through the roof. We really don't have that for a big mismatch.
The combined miss catches (even Brown geez) and miss throws by JT along with OL problems amplifies the passing woes.
I will say, IMHO, Parris Campbell got in the way of Samuel on that throw by JT to Curtis in the PSU game where Curtis broke to the sidelines. IMHO Parris was almost tackled by defensive holding to cause that slipup and there was no call. This IMHO was even worse than the McLaurren no call as it was even more obvious.
Well, Talk about eating crow on a post! OUCH!
I love the enthusiasm of the PSU writer/expert. His opinion has been based on games to date I suspect.
The problem is that OSU has played a near infinitely tougher schedule than PSU with the sole exception of Michigan which dominated them and held them to 10 points.
Now PSU faces the best offensive team they have faced this year and it isn't even close. They have a decimated LB corps and we have one of the best run offenses in the country that can attack anywhere. They have lost their best defensive players from last year Austin Johnson, Carl Nassab, and Anthony Zethel and attack the QB by scheme as they have no one to dominate on pass rush.
Offensively they lost their QB and have a 6'0" QB who can run and just this year established a spread offense that OSU has practiced against with superior players for years now!
On offense PSU lost their best OL tackle a horrible position to lose and they move their LT to RT and move another inexperienced player in. They have freshman at both guards who have to contend with Hill, Landers and Bosa. OUCH.
Phil Steele has predicted a 21+ win for OSU. Rain, Wind, and Cold may be the best alley of PSU in this game and may keep that spread slightly under the predictions. If OSU gets up early and takes the white out, out of the game it could get real ugly.
This may well be the beginning of the end of the Franklin era. If, in two weeks of prep, he can keep it close, KUDOS to him and his staff. We play base in the first quarter and vanilla on offense so he may be able to do that initially. Real bad weather could keep him in the game. We will see.
Windy, rainy and cold weather.
PSU doesn't get into the endzone: 6
PSU can't stop time eating running game of OSU: 31
Should change the rule to having possession versus touching.
Of course I have not watched all the games of Whisky before this one, but I suspect they added more than a few wrinkles. I suspect they changed fairly significantly how they played offense this year and hyper studying of the game tape by players and staff only set them up for failure. I think most all of us can agree the halftime adjustments by Staff was borderline brilliant.
As for me, I'm going to give Chryst and Wisconsin staff a great shout out for a brilliant two weeks of preparation and for an outstanding game plan on both sides of the ball.
Whisky is FOR REAL!
Two things I surmise in watching away games that may or may not be accurate. First, with Jt and new receivers, Urban seems reluctant to pass the ball. Second, in away games, it appears the 'win the surest way' pattern of thinking seems to take hold.
Been there; done that! LOL! Try not to post during the game now. Too much idiot juice streaming in my blood stream at that time!
Certainly the case in the 21st half. I suspect a number of them were quick to forgive once we won. LOL!!!
I thought JT had a few bad passes and I also thought the receivers dropped or failed to catch a number of 'catchable' balls. When you combine both, JT has bad passing numbers.
Wisconsin seemed to bring a ton of the big uglies into the line area seemingly forcing McMillian to attack a big ugly and that took him out of the play again and again I think.
Was it me or did it seem like Wisconsin was getting away with an infinite number of holds?
Great win and give Whisky credit they had a brilliant plan of attack on both sides of the ball and the freshman QB is GOOD!!!
Just a friendly FYI. Hubbard is a true sophomore and he must come back next year to complete his 3 years out of high school requirement.
