Tressel got us back to BIG title and a NC championship by recruiting Ohio hard, especially NE Ohio. That lockdown on NE talent also coincided with TTUN and their recent demise (no more Woods on, Howard, Kolesar, Grbac, etc.). I love getting the national guys, but I don't like seeing strong OH talent slow played.

I thought the D-line played pretty good also.  Bennett and Washington were tearing it up in the middle, Schutt looked good in his time on the field; Bosa spent the whole day tackling the QB who didn't have the ball (playing his role perfectly in the triple option) and Miller/Frazier had good performances; all the while waiting for Spence to return.  Navy knew where to attack (the edges in the 1st half; more middle in 2nd) and their success was due to our backers and run support corners/safeties not getting off blocks and making plays, not the D-line.  Their job is not to make the tackles all the time, but to free up the backers with double teams.

The key with those tackles is how many were after a 10-15 yard gain.  Plenty.  I thought the D did OK, but was surprised C. Grant wasn't in the mix at the LOS more.  He was making tackles, but they were after the Navy backs had some good gains.

Regarding the Bell/Burrows situation:  I was surprised to see Burrows start (I know, I know the depth chart listed OR), but didn't see much of #16 when Burrows was in, but saw #11 all over the place when Bell got in the game.  I don't want to hear at the end of the season again from our staff:  "I don't know why Bell wasn't in there".  This year was supposed to have better talent evaluation; especially on the defensive side of the ball.  Wasn't overly impressed with Powell.  Waiting to see what happens against an offense that passes more.  Will get a real good feel for the entire secondary and their skills.

Pure class and pure respect by both teams. The only call of the game that Verne and Gary got right: this is the way college football should be. Also love the fact that Tressel started that handshake in 2009. We are blessed to not only have great coaches, but great men who really have their priorities straight.

I thought Barrett looked pretty good in his 1st game competition since 2012. Linebackers had a chance to shine, but really struggled, considering they knew a run was coming every play. I noticed Burrows started but once Bell got in the game he was everywhere. Leave him in there.

Great win vs a quality, disciplined opponent. Glad they finished it off well to build some confidence. J.T. looked good enough, we're in good shape. Surprised we didn't see more power runs in the 1st half. It was there all say long.

It really pisses TTUN off that they are getting beat with Tressel ball and he doesn't even coach anymore.

Appy State all the way.  While a huge part of me wants them to be undefeated when we play them (anybody remember the Cooper years and that pain in those losses), another loss to them would be tremendous.  Either way, it's a win/win for us.

Nick looks like a college ready DL, just like his brother. He uses his hands very well, stays low and in that stance has great leverage and balance against the OL. He also has a nice burst of speed and a good feel for the game (as evidenced by the play where he lays off the QB and sniffs out the screen). He also is does a great job of getting his hands up to bat down passes when he can't get a sack. Come on bucks, lets get him.

I think he could be too, but it'll take some convincing.  He dropped Auburn or Tennessee (can't remember which) down the list because they wanted him at WR.

You forgot a team that now has something to prove without their star QB.

Thanks for posting this.  Truly a great read and the format was cool with the interviews and pictures while scrolling down.

"It's like a nightmare that never ends for Michigan."

That statement puts a huge smile on my face.  Hopefully the rematch is even better.
