Next week is the type of game that I live for. I hope it is the type of game that my kids will watch on ESPN Classic as they drive their hover craft to school. If JT can manage to convert on third downs, and if Bosa, Bennett, and Co. can keep Cook on his butt all night, it is OSU's game to lose. That said It won't be easy. They will be ready, and we will be ready. I am already getting pumped for this! May the work week seem short!

Heaven Forbid and I feel dangerously foolish for even thinking it, but if we had to roll with Jalin Marshall at QB, I would watch that game for sure. It would be extremely interesting. Again, I am perfectly fine with rolling with JT, or Cardale, or even an one armed Braxton Miller, but if it came to it, I still think we could put up points. We would have to run a true triple option, and our defense is becoming good enough to pull that off. Just saying that if it came to it, I would want to see it. Again, I guess I am just one of those people who want to see the world burn. I still want to roll with JT this week.

Side note: Cardale made this coaching staff look pretty good tonight didn't they?

I think this shows that the best teams can keep the best talent in-state and yet are still able to recruit nationally at a high level. You can't go all local like Maryland and you can't go all national like Purdue.

I like the simplicity of it all. It is not a thing where he is showboating or dissing anyone. It is a simple gesture that he didn't create. It kind of fits his personality.

I would really like to see an extensive package with Jalin Marshall at QB for games like this, where you still want to be dangerous but want to limit JT's carries. I watched him in High School, and while his throws aren't exactly beautiful, he can really run the triple option at an extremely high level. And he is strong enough to handle the QB runs up the middle. What I do not want is last week where everyone knew that the Wildcat was keeping it to the outside every play, but rather run a true triple option.

I would say that dropping Jefferson will probably really lock in the three guys we have right now. That is a great show of faith by the coaching staff to drop the recruitment of an absolute stud. If they would have continued to recruit him, I would have been pissed if I were those three. But dropping him is a great move. I would've liked to have him, but I like these three Ohio dudes better.

Well, as much as I liked him, there is not enough time for him to get back on the team, which means next man up. It hurts, and it doesn't even open a scholarship up for next year. I don't like this one bit. Right now I don't see any positives, but maybe he can use this as a wake-up call for whatever he issues were. He is the only person that can change this from a negative situation into a positive one. 

I wish you the best Rod Smith!

Some days I am angry and embarrassed for the sake of our conference and our rivalry, and then there are days like today where I can't help but hope they hire another Michigan Man who leads them onto short-term mediocrity followed by a gradual turn toward dumpster fire. As long as we beat them, I don't really care. I benefit from the laughter caused by their getting run off their own field by Minnesota in front of about ten (?) people, and OSU benefits by beating them when they are a solidly overrated. Win-Win.
