  • SPORTS MOMENT: Every time I step into the Horseshoe, the 1997 Rose Bowl, the entirety of the 2002 season (especially "Holy Buckeye", The Game, winning the National Championship), the 2006 season - pre-disaster in the desert, the Game of the Century in 2006, the 2010 Rose Bowl victory against "unstoppable" Oregon, the next decade of CFB dominance under Urban Meyer.

I'm generally not a pessimistic person, but why do 9 get the feeling that Maryland is going to play out of their minds on Saturday? You know, like every shit teak does against Ohio State - especially during noon games. I really hope we drop 60 on those fools.

Given the red zone offensive woes, terrible 3rd down percentage and number of turnovers - all of which came in 5 of our supposedly easiest games of the year (a time when normally would see scoreboards lot up like Christmas), there's more than a few reasonable criticisms. Obviously the Twitter trolls take it way too far, but measured criticism is due, I'd say.

I loathe Penn State fans. They STILL worship Joe Paterno and legitimately believe they got screwed by the NCAA. And they STILL have the audacity to trash Jim Tressel and Ohio State for the whole tattoo thing. They also are 100% convinced the Big Ten has it in for them. Penn State fans are the very epitome of paranoid delusion.

I love Cardale and support him and coach UFM implicitly. But we're 5 games in and we're one of the worst teams in the country in red zone percentage, turnovers and 3rd down conversions. He's played well in spurts but hasn't converted when it counts. Granted, that's not all on him, but those are the primary responsibilities of the QB. It'll get better but taking ALL 5 games into account, I wouldn't say he's played great.

I tend to agree with the OP. Unless MSU chokes between now and then, they should have no more than one loss, which would make them top 10 in late November. If TTUN keeps winning and has 2 losses or fewer, they'll be very close to the top 10. The B1G West champ will also be very close, as with the two leaders - NW and Iowa - are currently unbeaten and likely won't lose more than 2 games before end of season. The playoff teams are obviously both top 4. Although our schedule is back loaded, it could end up being pretty solid when it's all said and done. Beaten 4-5 ranked teams - especially top 5-10 type teams is impressive. Screw anyone who bashes our schedule, as though games in September have any bearing on how a team finishes.

Not to mention the hardest part of the entire season: the players getting back their NFL Draft grades...

Dude. I agree that there are probably a FEW plays that get sequestered away for the big games, but you think Urban is sandbagging while two games against NIU and Indiana go down to the last play? No freaking way. We could've easily lost last week, as if Indiana would've scored they almost certainly would have went for two. Significantly holding back the game plan then losing or almost losing one or more games would be incredibly risky and irresponsible. If anything, the stupid ass turnovers and horrible red zone offense causes the staff to withdraw into a conservative shell later in the game.

It's frustrating to continue seeing the ball put on the ground and/or get intercepted. It's more frustrating when you consider that this issue goes back to at least mid-year last season. I'm an advocate of getting a little "tougher" on the guys who continually turn it over, but how on earth can you sit a guy like Jalin Marshall - especially after the Corey Smith injury? What other WR aside from Mike Thomas is capable of catching over 100 yards of passes in a game right now? Maybe Curtis Samuel if we can find ways to consistently get him the ball, but we're now dangerously thin at WR. This is when guys like Braxton, Dontre and KJ Hill/Parris/Dixon really need to step up if we hope to make a deep playoff run similar to 2014.

They don't negate the yards, no. But yards don't win games; points do. I believe Jalin will get it fixed, which is critical, as we sorely need his production, and even more so now than ever since the Corey Smith injury.
