Basically the whole video was of the whites.


That would be the single greatest troll of the CFB season if we drop 70 on them wearing white, in front of a white out.

Urban's downplaying this whole thing. 

We blow out the rest of our opponents, beat MSU soundly,then handle the West contender, and we're in the playoffs. That's our only shot and Meyer knows it. That's the level he's trying to get this team to. He knows better than anyone what a team needs to look like, so if he's unsatisfied with last Saturday he obviously sees insane potential in this team.

Can someone teach me to do this for a living so I can stop feeling so shitty about putting off my course work?

J.T. is the best 5-wide QB we've had since Troy, but we also haven't had speed and consistency in the underneath routes like this since then. The scary thing is we keep this entire package next year, replacing Heuerman with a very athletic Marcus Baugh.

If every conference champion has two losses and unbeaten Ole Miss gives Miss St. a close first loss, both of the Mississippi teams are in the playoff. Especially if Ole Miss handles the East champion (likely Georgia). This is a pretty improbable scenario, but it would mean the Mississippis had done enough to deserve it. There's nothing we can do to combat the shitty conference perception, the damage is done. The SEC is reaping the benefit of winning on the big stage year after year for the last decade. They may not actually be the best conference, but there's only one way to prove it if the B1G gets another chance.

It's essentially double elimination at this point. Lose two and you're out.

Ohio State needs every two loss team to win every week and we're in. Assuming we win out. 

TAMU, USC, Stanford, LSU, Arkansas need to start doing work. If Alabama could lose one of their next two, that would be huge.

Because it isn't necessarily true.

Noah Spence is/was our premier pass rusher, his coverage skills didn't really change any games last year. He would be buzzing the flats every now and then this season, but our base 4-3 behaves like a nickel already because of how Lee lines up. And if we're going to rush 3 out of that look, I'd rather bring in Armani - who has quietly had an impressive season. On obvious passing downs, Spence would be making a difference getting to the QB, not snagging INTs and busting up slants.

To rely on the Leo constantly dropping back or sliding out to the flats makes the D a little slow on the edge. It's a nice trick to screw with the QB, but it's also a gimmick and can be seriously exposed on a flash/IZ package.

I respectfully disagree completely.

Wisconsin and MSU have been running 8 and 9 man fronts against Braxton his entire career. In fact, JT's style is much much more predicated to beating that type of attack. If we had had the confidence to go 5 wide as often against VT as we did Cincy, we win that game handily. They had just gameplanned the only part of the offense we had time to install. It was a shit luck draw, but we faced a bigtime D-coordinator with a green offense, he exposed the lack of experience - not lack of talent. 

Teaching an offense is foundational and starts from the bottom. You can't teach adjustment concepts before you teach your fundamental plays. We were perfecting our power zone concepts for the first couple of weeks, but now that we see what JT is about we can implement packages specializing his skill set. I honestly think if we play VT at the end of the year we beat them by 3 TDs. You can't call plays you haven't practiced, and you can't practice plays that aren't a part of your base scheme until you've had enough reps to perfect your base scheme. We only had the experience to run the base O against VT, and they were ready for it.
