It's numbers. Numbers, numbers, numbers. The lifeblood of any program is recruiting. And increasingly big ten programs have less and less of a pool to pull from. Tradition matters. Big named coaches matter. But weather and closeness to home are mattering more and more. In 1980 the state is *ichigan and Florida had the same population. Today, Florida has double the population. There's a reason why teams like UCF, ECU,etc have seen their programs improve. I think the big ten, long term, is in trouble. It hurts to say but I don't see how you could think otherwise. We need to continue hiring big name coaches and co's. Improve OOC schedule. And recruit southern states like maniacs.

Alright guys. I just woke up with the beautiful colorado sunshine in my eyes and remembered the dream I awoke from. Ohio state was struggling with Navy initially and then boom, the cable went out. When it finally came back on it was 56-0 good guys. Here's to dreams coming from the sunshine. 

Go Bucks!

We have a lot of Texas transplants here in Colorado - by far the most annoying people on earth. When I hear someone bragging about Texas my response is usually pretty short and sweet "oh, it's that great? You should go back". Conversation over.

Meh with your rationality

Honestly though, not that it matters. Seems like a lot of guys on here defending him. I wonder if it were one of our guys, would he be receiving the same benefit of the doubt from BAMA fans.

And then I realize...of course not. Not to mention, they don't have a kick-ass medium like 11W on their end

Calm down. He doesn't play for Ohio State so there must be a reasonable explanation.

I just laugh with both excitement and embarrassment when I see only THREE seniors on that impressive list. Excited that it appears to be a strength of ours for many years to come. Embarrassed for those opposing teams QBs. Especially Devin Gardner. Oh, Devin. Your career at scUM will end so badly. As it should, as it has for many of those before you.

Coming down on recruits and giving them a hard time due to them not choosing your school is wrong, dead wrong. But spare me the "let them be, folks" bit. It's funny how it usually comes from the ones following the every little move of these kids on social media. Really? Me let them be? At least I'm not retweeting videos of them running around in the snow half naked. Kinda creepy if you ask me. Following recruits this closely is dumb. Really really really dumb. And you have only yourself to blame for their behavior on social media ad for being upset/pissed off when they don't choose your school. Downvote away. Couldn't care less as per usual.

And it's pretty obvious that Jones is all MSU

Braxton has or is very close to his ceiling. Would I love to see a Troy smith type of improvement in the passing game? Yes, but it's just not gonna happen. The James Clark's of the world will have to wait another year. Downvote away. Couldn't care less

Just call it like it is. Has the coaching and the defensive play calling been suspect? Probably. But the bottom line is we do not have the Jimmy's and Joe's...yet!

A good number of players on Defense were just misses. MAC players at best.

I really doubt Morris is drawing up a gameplan to just have Boyd drop back and drop bombs into Watkins' lap all day long. I fully expect Clemson to use a short intermediate passing game, wideout screens (watch for the misdirection) and maybe some sweeps to exploit this defense. They will neutralize the defensive line and the game will be theirs.

63-38 Clemson
