It was Herman. The offensive play calling was the worst of the season. The D was about the same as usual.
Dantonio is definitely my 2nd favorite coach in the B1G. His NW halftime comments (and overall lack of smiling), and now voting OSU #1 in the coaches poll...love this guy.
Other than the figurative variety occurring on the field of play.
Seriously though, while we may get a win vs FSU minus Winston, that isn't what I want as a fan. I want to beat the best team at their best. That's the only thing that will give us true credit. Back-dooring into a national title won't win us any credit.
They actually played Oregon football, and Oregon last night again played true Oregon football rather than perceived Oregon football. True Oregon football is a lot like Stanford football, but Stanford football from when they lost to Utah (not real Stanford football). Stanford scored 63 points last night and was actually playing Baylor football.
Yes, he must have taken a shot to the head because he almost fell over when trying to get up off the field and had to be held up by coaches.
I remember that Braxton wore gloves on both hands vs Purdue for sure, and also against Penn State I believe.
Stanford is only a 4 point favorite over USC. I can't recall a smaller spread for a top 5 team vs an unranked team.
Yes, and unfortunately we aren't going to get that SEC title game push that they got. Also the argument that nobody wanted to see an OSU v Mich rematch for the title game (valid, the LSU Bama rematch was brutal) helped. I just hope we get in.
We can only hope that this team is like the 06 Gators. On the outside looking in, and ranked #4 (if I remember?) going into the last week of the season where they got voted up to #2 as teams lost. They weren't viewed as a #1 or #2 team all year until they dominated the NCG.
I would only hope that we don't have to wait until championship game weekend to jump to #2.
edit: They were #4 behind 12-0 OSU, 11-1 Michigan, and 11-1 USC. USC lost their championship game and Florida jumped UM after winning the SEC championship game.
