Did you illustrate your point in a post about JT Barrett by using Clemson in a game he didn't play in?
I was most worried about this game all season. In my mailbag question I said getting the team back up for the second week for a night game on back to back weeks against a team off a bye week would be difficult
It proved true as the guys just looked tired last night
I'm good with everyone saying they are unbeatable. Plenty of material for the other teams to punch them in the mouth
How does Meyer get the team back up from an emotional win on the road in OT to go to another hostile environment where you are playing a team who had a bye week again and puts everything into this week? Night game on road to night game on road is not common in todays CFB landscape, especially with both opponents having bye weeks the week before
That was the biggest WTF to me all night. I know Wisky hasn't run that a ton this year, but it has been a staple in their offense for as long as i can remember, and our coaching staff was unprepared for it in the first half
Just curious, would you say the same thing if his 2 WRs had come down with the 2 TD passes?
i agree he underthrew one badly last night, and overthrew Clark on his INT. Aside from that I didn't think he looked too bad. I also am taking this is a one game sample size. He played worse at home last weekend
No No No...8 SEC TEAMS. 7 is for other conferences.
Bama, A&M, Tennessee, Arky, LSU, Ole Miss, Auburn, Florida. None of them are good aside from Bama and maybe A&M. Half of the 15-25 range just to keep those CBS ratings up.
I'm surprised Penn State isn't even receiving votes. They have started to put some stuff together the last few weeks. Have accomplished as much as some of those SEC 20-25 teams
God It's like people just bash JT because they don't know who else to blame. Guy goes 17/29 last night, with his WRs dropping 2 for sure TDs, and dropping other passes as well. He could easily have been 21/29 with 3 TDs, and then he's an fing hero
Samuel has to come down with that ball
Barrett came through in the 2nd half and overtime. Got the crap together
I don't see Wisky putting up 20+, and I don't see OSU scoring less than 28
I mean this game doesn't matter one lick for the playoffs really. If OSU were to lose by 20, then win out, beat either Nebraska or Wisky in the B1G title game, they will be a 12-1 team from a good conference and get in.
Same goes for Bama this week in their game
Can OSU win the B1G playing Tresselball this year? People are worrying about the passing game, but isn't there a chance that our run game is good enough to win the whole thing if we have our defense playing well and Cam punting the ball and giving the D great field position (which leads to the O having great field position)
I mean our offense usually USUALLY does a good job of getting a few first downs and letting OSU win field position. When OSU wins field position, it is difficult to drive the field against our D. They give some first downs up, but it's hard to string a drive together to score points
5* predictions remaining. Rivals has us potentially getting all 3 based on the "predictions" sentence
Buy water and toilet paper. Batteries for a flashlight
Texas LSU and Bama have all been rumored leaders at one point or another, so of those 3 probably Bama
They indicate that these are not really weaknesses but the worst at what a good team does.
Can OSU pass the ball? I mean 150 yards and 4 TDs against OU in basically 2 1/2 quarters is pretty good. The numbers don't scream out great because OSU doesn't need to throw the ball.
Big runs? OSU has short fields often due to good defense and turnovers. Samuel's run against OU would have been for 90 yards if it was on 3rd down at the 10 yard line
The pass rush looked good last week and contained well against Mayfield. Do I wish we have Joey Bosa another year with Spence back from the NFL? Hell yea
Young team - Bama was one of the youngest teams last year and OSU was in 2014
He didn't get hit on that play...he just made a bad read. It isn't about unsettling Barrett, it's about letting him know he can't be careless with the ball ever. There isn't a QB controversy no matter what, but you don't want Barrett knowing he can throw INTs and that is acceptable.
Then he wouldn't have started the series IMO. It's a small thing but I do believe it was a message.
The series below, Barrett is in the game as seen by the incompletion on 2nd and 4. This ball is in a Rutgers' defenders hands and he drops it. Next play, IN THE MIDDLE OF A DRIVE, Burrow came in and handed off
2nd and 4 at RUTG 23
(3:58 - 3RD) J.T. BARRETT PASS INCOMPLETE TO MARCUS BAUGH
3rd and 4 at RUTG 23
(3:48 - 3RD) DEMARIO MCCALL RUN FOR 3 YDS TO THE RUTGR 20
4th and 1 at RUTG 20
(3:36 - 3RD) DEMARIO MCCALL RUN FOR 20 YDS FOR A TD, (TYLER DURBIN KICK)
Bama won the NCG last year after a great game by Coker. Kiffin has done a great job at Bama of getting guys to perform well in the big games on offense.
I am a huge JT supporter but his 17/2 ratio is a bit misleading. He has thrown 3-4 more balls there were in defensive players hands and dropped. It got him pulled in the game Saturday
We get vanilla in the second half and run the ball. People complained about it after the OU game too...only 150 yards and 4tds
I agree, but think OSU is less dependent on one player. They have proven they can win big games without Barrett
I generally agree however
Yes, other had to do their jobs, but Jackson is the spoon that stirs the drink. Their offense is dynamic because Jackson is there. If he's not there, the RB doesn't get his yards as easily, the WR's don't get 1 on 1 coverage to make those plays, and the defense doesn't get onto the field at the opponents 10 every drive, making it easier to stop points being scored.
