Too many posts to see whether someone has already posted something similar, but a couple of random thoughts:
1.) Our loss to VT was 12 days after learning that we would be without Braxton and the staff had to prepare JT (and the rest of the team) for Navy versus VT who was playing William and Mary. I'll wager they spent most of their preparation scheming for the Bucks.
2.) Why is it that two of our "tougher" opponents get a bye week before playing us? PSU and MSU have bye weeks immediately before playing OSU. Both are night games, on the road, in hostile stadiums.
3.) Will Tom Herman learn from watching the PSU offense using the wide receiver screen to near perfection?
This was a tough win in a tough environment for a young team whose offensive line had </= starts compared to the PSU offensive line. Keep improving and let the chips fall where they may. We might only be able to be Big10 Champs and win our Bowl Game with the current playoff system. I would be happy with that for this team.
Hopefully everyone came out of this game healthy but we need to run JT less to keep him healthy for the MSU and UM games.
