I am disappointed by the stolen base but satisfied because of the free taco tomorrow.

Edit: Apparently I have to wait until November 2nd I'm sorry I thought this was America

No, but you were referring to the original post and the closest thing I saw as reference to marquee opponents was,

4. Even when we have special games, like Dark Night In The Shoe, we still cant seem to get fully on board. There was a lot of scarlet in the stands and it STILL wasn't loud enough.

I guess if you want to refer to last year's 7-6 Penn State team that we all knew was bad going into the game as a marquee game, sure.

I guess I'm just frustrated because this somehow comes up at least 3 times a season when, in my opinion, it's a non-issue. Alternatively, the basketball games are a whole different story...

How loud do you think Beaver Stadium was for Penn State's big tilt against Minnesota earlier in the year?

Ohio State is every B1G team's marquee opponent each year. Of course the stadium is going to go crazy for it. We just don't see the games where they play a MAC team or Rutgers.

Knarcisi, I'll concede that it was a well-deserved loss and that a lot of things went wrong with the coaching that shouldn't have. I personally believe that the youth shouldn't be used as an excuse, but rather understood as one of the factors that contributed to a 4th quarter meltdown all-around.

The point of my original post was just to say that there's a lot of things that have changed from MSU -> UM -> ND and that it's not as glaring and obvious of a parallel.

1. Oklahoma (and the entire Big XII) plays no defense and OSU does; I think we beat them 9/10 times. Also, did you watch the same Wisconsin game that I did? Because they looked pretty rattled throughout and only took the lead for the first time well after halftime.
2. Oh come on. This is the first year I'm aware of that we've "played the young card" in the entire Urban era. They are statistically the 128th (out of 128 teams) experienced team in the FBS and it was going to come back and bite us in the ass eventually. I don't care who's coaching, there's no way around that.

As far as coaching goes, it's a lot easier fix when you have dozens of veteran, first-round NFL draft picks on the roster than when you have a young, inexperienced team making their third road start.
