It looks like the defense paid absolutely no attention to the "fainting goat" decoy.

Did they think one of the defenders was going to stop and give him CPR?

I think the unit will get stronger as the season progresses. VT flustered them in the fourth quarter, they were behind and panicked. They just need to keep getting reps together and learn to trust themselves as a unit. I think their biggest problem is communication. They all have the athleticism to play with anyone. There are just going to be some growing pains this year.

I see people's tune has changed since we massacred Florida A&M last year. I remember everyone complaining about how dirty they felt after that win. I guess since we lost last week everyone's attitude has changed?

If these players wanted to play MAC competition then they would have went to a MAC school.

And at the end of the year when the playoff committee looks at our strength of schedule, in an already weak B1G, we have no one to blame but ourselves for scheduling schools like this.

It's a stat padding, garbage game against players that aren't as good as our third-team. Our young players get better reps in practice.

We are basically buying a win paying a school like this to come and play us. Games like this should not be on our schedule. Our team is not going to get better playing competition like this.

I don't care if I get down-voted, it's the damn truth.

The B1G has lost a ton of close games. I know it sounds like excuse making but the losses to LSU, VaTech, Iowa State, all could have gone the other way. 

It is excuse making.

The B1G is ALWAYS coming up short, and it has been happening for quite some time. At some point you are what your record says you are. This conference is simply NOT getting it done in bowl games or against OOC opponents.in the regular season.

Until this conference actually starts beating quality OOC teams, then they are going to continue to be considered a joke.

Times have changed. Industry is down in the north, and people are moving away for better  jobs. The population is declining in the north and increasing in the south, so High School football isn't what it once was in the north. Ohio is one of the few states in the region still producing High School players at a high level, and since the other states aren't, they are plucking more of our in-state talent reducing our local talent pool. Also a lot of people want to live in a warmer climate. There are many different factors, but the result is that the B1G is dying.

You have schools getting paid in this conference and doing nothing to earn it. Why should they care? They are still getting paid. These schools are ruining the conference, and Ohio State should leave before it is too late.

Urban lost to 'Ole Miss at Florida and then went on to win the National Championship. 

You see really good NFL teams lose to bad teams all of the time, and the best team doesn't always win the Super Bowl. It's hard to be perfect every week, and we are talking about the best players in the world.

Unfortunately in college football, one bad week can cost you a shot at the title. Considering it's a popularity contest, and still not a true playoff, it's hard to prepare for so many different styles each week with limited practice time. Plus we are talking about 18-22 year old kids.
