US Army career officer - Medical Service Corps. Been a long road since I enlisted back in the early 80's as a Private; had a nice government all expenses paid trip to Saudia Arabia in 90-91 and felt the need to return to the deserts of Iraq in 2004.

Overall can't complain, but the Army sure has changed in 30 years.

It's nice to have a defense that plays hard and to it's potential. Can't say that about the other side of the ball.

I just get frustrated with our inconsistency.  If we were really a top 2 dominant team, today wouldn't have happened. JT with all his records and accolades is just too inconsistent throwing.  He missed a wide open streaking post Samuel in the first to throw an incomplete 6 yarder.  Tim Beck didn't do that. Curtis Samuel with only 6 freaking touches?  JT running 20 times?  That's poor offensive scheming.  We dominate easy teams and play down to ok teams. We play tight against good teams.  It is what it is.

Beck not throwing the ball.  JT clearly not throwing well (don't give me any weather exercises either). He's inaccurate in good weather also. I like JT, he's a good leader and record setter for us, but I won't excuse his throwing inconsistencies.  We won but may drop in rankings not taking care of 3-7 team.

Maybe, but my $ is on Franklin - everything is there for him.  Big unexpected win, back story of finally coming out of the impediments of recruiting reductions, etc.

The down vote on this response is silly.  This response is exactly how I feel also.  I feel the committee will succumb to "conference champions" pressure and we will be TCU'd this time around.

Ok I'll bite Navy. Maybe JT is scrambling and extending plays due to his lack of seeing or throwing open WR's?  There have been numerous times this season when they are clearly open and he simply doesn't see them. That and being inaccurate on wide open opportunities.  It's great he can scramble but I was more impressed with Burrrow's short time on the field and his accuracy.  Granted pressure was off and subs were in, but he showed me a lot.  In either case, we are blessed at the most important position in football.
