I don't see JT's time increasing significantly over the next 26 days. What can change though is play calling to offset the lack of time (IMO). I think the offense is at it's best when running up tempo, quick hit plays and utilizing multiple personnel. When the offense plays this way, we seem to move the ball efficiently. When the offense settles in and becomes predictable, defenses stack the box and pressure JT by keying on  the weakest link in the O line.

Call me crazy but I could see the winner of the B1G leapfrogging Michigan should Clemson or Washington lose. I think Michigan is stuck there at 5 unless both Washington and Clemson lose. And even then I'm not sure they get in.

JT is at his best when he is distributing the ball. Doing so gets most/ all of the skill players involved and usually involves more diverse, less predictable play calling, as well as up tempo. This also helps the offensive line because they're not asked to hold blocks as long, or try to protect when outnumbered because the defense knows what's coming/doesn't fear the passing game.

I agree, Shawnee. JT is a distributer. He is at his best when he is distributing the ball, utilizing different receivers, and hittting quick throws. When the game plan is developed this way, the offense seems to hum. Examples include last year's Michigan and ND games, and the Oklahoma game. Quick, efficient, diverse. Then, when things are humming, he can hit the long ball.

If Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, and Rutgers are recruiting you, You don't choose Rutgers. You just don't. 

I've lived in Ohio and NJ, and from my experience in NJ, nobody cares about Rutgers or Rutgers football. In my opinion, there's no way Ash can keep the best talent in NJ.  Not when he competing against football and academic rich schools like Ohio State, UM, and others. I think Ash would be wise to learn how places like Boise State have been able to build competitive teams.

My biggest issue with night games is that my kids have fewer chances to watch the Buckeyes play live. My eight year old son loves football, loves the Buckeyes, and loves watching his favorite players.  When I was a kid, my dad and I watched every game together. I don't get to share that with my son. Instead, I tell him who won and show him the highlights. 

If if all the biggest games (with the exception of The Game) are night games, my son only gets to watch games like Purdue, Indiana, Minnesota. He missed the MSU games the last few years, the Sugar Bowl, and the NC.
