+ 44 / - 36 at the moment.  Not sure I've ever seen such a polarizing post.

I really hope the PSU fans give him a warm welcome.  Hopefully they cut to him on the jumbotron (and its televised).

No more alternates, chromes, throw backs, whatever they hell you call them.  I want regular scarlet jerseys with grey pants at home, regular silver helmets with Buckeye leaves, and the white versions for road games.  Stop messing around so much, we're not Oregon.

Ok we look a lot better this year but those total pass yards allowed numbers are a little silly.  One sixth of our season was spent playing Navy, who went 2/4 passing.  Let's see where we sit after Cook gets his chance and Indiana's pass-happy offense goes at it.

As far as I can tell it's never happened.Other than Braxton, the last teams to win back to back were Michigan (Perry 03, Edwards 04), Ohio State (George 95, Pace 96) and Michigan (Howard 91, Wheatley 92).  In all three cases the first guy was in his last year at the school.

Never forget that when they were rating the high school quarterbacks in 2010, Braxton Miller was #2 - behind Jeff Driskel.

Comment 17 Oct 2014

I would too, but if the offense scores 40+ like they want to you're giving the other team a ton of possessions.  Margin of victory is probably a better measure for how we performed than the total points they wind up scoring.

The ACC is terrible, but I don't think there's any way the committee leave out FSU if they finish 12-1.  You can't make a big stink about finally having a true champion and leave out the defending champion with an equal record.  I just can't see it happening.

Comment 15 Oct 2014

Yes, but on the flip side, its entirely possible that without that loss the offense wouldnt find any need to evolve so much.  Do we run so many pistol formations and pull the tackle as often if we hadnt need to install it after losing to the bear?  I'm not sure.  Either way, no sense in looking back now.

Comment 14 Oct 2014

They did a good job of that too.  The basic idea was to take away the zone read and make sure Barrett couldn't dump it off in the flat, both of which would force the unexperienced kid to try to air it out.  I don't think it would be nearly as effective today, but I'm sure Dantonio/Narduzzi will have some new wrinkle ready.

Comment 14 Oct 2014

A bear defense can mitigate the risk of a big play if they're getting consistent pressure.  It's a virtual lock that MSU will play some Bear, as their d-line is by far the best we'll face all year.  In that scenario you need to have Barrett get some quick slants or drops off to Wilson/Marshall so they can't afford to have so many guys by the line.

I hated him because he beat us, but if I'm being objective Bud Foster definitely went genius-mad-scientist on us.  He basically knew it would get in the head of a freshman qb with all of one career start.  No way this would have been the plan against Braxton, who would have just run from the pressure.
