Meyer said on Tuesday's Big Ten coaches teleconference his comfort level with his team and redshirt freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett is "night and day" from where it was just over a month ago.

"You expect with a good kid that works hard and a pretty good system of offense we have so I anticipated that we’d be much better (now)...."

And I've read countless other quotes where Meyer talks about how good J.T. is and how high his ceiling is. Heck, he even referred to him earlier in the season as "Guitonish", which is very high praise from Urban.

Why don't you try posting this on an MSU page then? Here, it just reeks of deflection and a "look over there" distraction attempt. This post sullies your already questionable reputation for being "reasonable".

Is that correct? HOW?!! Saban is making 6 or 7 million this year, so how is it possible that Weis could be making almost 4 times that much? Even if it is between 2 schools, that number seems way inflated.

Edit: Just looked it up. He will make a TOTAL of about $24 million, not just for this year. That total includes the money ND payed him since his dismissal in 2010, and the money they will still be paying him thru next year (a whopping $19 mil!) PLUS the money Kansas will owe him for the remainder of his contract (the rest of this year and next).

Md again has one of their top 2 receivers injured. Beyond that, they do not have the depth that UC has. And they're QB is not the gunslinger that Kiel is. So I have to agree with the assessment that UC's passing game was one of, if not the best, we'll see this year. But we'll find out next week!

I'd venture to say that MSU is still the best remaining test for our defense. Certainly their QB is the best we'll face this year.

Which STILL would have been the right decision from him. A lineman upfield would've been highly unlikely, but even with the penalty would've resulted in only a 5 yard loss. Me and everyone in my section were yelling at him to throw the ball away immediately when he got to it, which is what a QB should do in that situation.

I like his game, too, he's a ton of fun to watch! Tho calling him a mini Lebron is a bit of a stretch. I actually think Russell's a more creative and explosive scorer than Lebron, but in every other facet of the game, Lebron is better and way more dynamic.

But Westbrook is young and still learning the game. If he ever gets it completely under control, he'll be a top 5 player. I think he's already a top 10 guy.

Amen, Silver. Irving is still on his way up the ladder.

OSU69, Westbrook at #1 is highly questionable. Paul, Parker and Irving are much better distributors, with better assist-to-turnover rates. He dominates the ball WAY too much, especially when he plays on a team with a scorer like Durant.

Comment 27 Sep 2014

If only he could play defense, he'd be in the argument for the top spot. I'd rank him #4 based on his effectiveness on the offensive end, but he'll always be behind Paul because of his D.

Comment 26 Sep 2014

That reminds me, I owe him a check for $1.09

The key to good editing is to have someone else edit your content. Having an editor would be great, but it would slow the release of articles, so I say keep doing what you're doing, guys, and we'll live with the occasional error.

They've played Central Florida (breaking in a new QB), Akron, Rutgers and UMass. I think the jury is still out on whether their defense can slow down a good offense. Plus, they lack depth at every position.

When they face OSU, Md and Ind in consecutive weeks, we'll know what that defense is capable of.
