The problem is that before 1975, the only bowl game any Big Ten team could play in was the Rose Bowl. So, whoever won the Big went on...and everyone else stayed home. It was a big reason why the Ten Year War was so intense, and why Big Ten teams generally have lower numbers of bowl appearances than teams from other conferences. I think that might skew your numbers a bit.

I think we've seen that the most talented team doesn't always win. All we heard ever since January was how much talent we have. While I still firmly believe we have the best head coach in the country, I think the coaching turnover, plus the JT/Cardale merry-go-round, plus a lack of leadership, made things difficult despite our talent.

But now there's only one thing we can do--BEAT _ICHIGAN!!

Imagine that the coaching staff made an unbelievable decision and went with Samuel instead of Zeke Saturday. The imaginative play calling, plus Samuel getting 20-30 touches, gives us a win.

Does Zeke still make the same post game comments? Of course not. He wasn't bitching because it was all about him; he was saying what we all felt--that this coaching staff didn't give the TEAM the chance to win.

This coaching staff was given the keys to a Ferrari at the beginning of the year and turned it into a smoke-belching Pinto. I don't see that changing Saturday, unfortunately.

Urban will have a lot of thinking to do in the offseason.

Poor Hackenburg looked like he was ready for the ER by the end of that game. Unless Dantonio forgets how to coach before Saturday, MSU's D line will manhandle PSU's front the same way they did ours.

Getting beat when your best gets beat by their best is one thing. Getting beat when their best beats your...whatever...isn't okay at any level.

And don't get me started with the warther excuse. We are OHIO State, for the love of God. We get weather in November. Both teams play in the same comditions, don't they?

We've seen this all season...just something missing from this team, for all the talent there. They haven't been "in sync" ever. I hate to say it, but that's usually leadership and coaching.

I feel bad that the coaches seem to have let these guys down.

Flew into Sin City West yesterday. Beautiful sunrise over the mountains this morning, and looking forward to seeing many Buckeye fans at the Bellagio sports book. We usually represent pretty well out here, so it should be fun. And you know I'll be betting the kids' college funds on the Buckeyes!

The only thing anyone should ever eat at Dead Crustacean is the cheddar biscuits. Damn, but they're good.
