Was anyone hoping they were better on that final drive last year?

The last two years have been 42-41 and 26-21.  Let's get a few blowouts before we start worrying about our biggest enemy.

Steelers fan here - I remember when Drew Bledsoe got hurt for the Pats.  Not only did he suffer a very serious injury, but they had to turn to rookie Tom Brady.  I remember feeling kind of bad for the Pats - they had been so bad for so long, and they finally get good, only to see their star QB almost get killed.  I figured they'd be terrible again.

Moral of the story - I will NEVER feel sorry for any team, ever again.  Burn on!

VT is definitely still over our heads.  Silver lining - their win over Duke puts them in a position to still make a bowl.  Their next two games are not hard.

Great stuff.  Incidentally, this is usually the first thing mentioned in any coaching clinic.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

I'm challenging the "inconsistent" idea.  All of the top teams have a weakness, and I think you're overstating OSU's.

As another example, Alabama is impressive in being 5th in 3rd down percentage.  However, OSU is 4th.  TCU and their "unstoppable" offense?  48th.

Things just aren't as bad as some seem to think.

That Popovich article is fantastic.  I hate when people talk about the gods of a sport, or what should have happened, teams of destiny, etc.

Since the DLine is the current strength, I'll pick a LB.  I'll go somewhat current and say AJ Hawk.

He always seemed to know which way the play was going, so I'd take him to shut down the opposing team's run game and provide the occasional sack.

When he played, even the people I know that hate OSU were like "uh, yeah that dude kicks ass".

Comment 19 Nov 2014

I was kind of depressed in reaching the end of that game, because I really didn't want it to end.

I'd recommend the 3D version if you haven't played it.

Comment 19 Nov 2014

People seem worried if Braxton will transfer, but I think we should be worried about JT.

If Braxton comes back and starts, JT effectively has to sit out a year at OSU, so a transfer wouldn't really cost him.

I hate to say it, but I think Braxton needs to start his NFL journey.

Comment 18 Nov 2014

Of note - the entire 2002 defense played multiple years in the NFL.  I wonder how many teams can claim that.

Comment 15 Nov 2014

Miss. State's 3 big wins are LSU, Auburn, and T A&M.  All three lost today, and perhaps only Auburn will be ranked next week.

Try not to choke to death from laughter as you look up their non-conference schedule.  OSU should pass them.

Comment 15 Nov 2014

I thought the same thing.  After the MSU win, the tone at ESPN has completely changed.  Now it seems like they want OSU in.

Still though, they wield too much power.  But I think they want two SEC teams, OSU and Oregon.  Everyone wants FSU to just go away.

Comment 15 Nov 2014

Should we also bench Michael Thomas, since he had a few drops?  Maybe we should bench JT, since he threw that momentum changing pick?  Nobody is perfect.  Stick with Jalin.

You can't have players that are afraid of making mistakes.  Did anyone watch Gametime with Urban Meyer this morning?  He talked about that exact subject.

Comment 10 Nov 2014

I"m not sure this is a bad thing, in that it let everyone see that these two teams simply aren't what they've been in recent years.

LSU has lost a ton of NFL players the last two years, so they're definitely down and everyone knows it.  The fact that it took OT for Bama to put them away shows they're down too.

This game was proof that the SEC shouldn't get two teams in the final four.
