I'll eat Jeremy's shoe if he's under 4.4. My guess would be 4.45 range. Clean breaks out of routes allows him to get quick separation, hence the running by people. He doesn't waste motion.

It's amazing how much analysis can be put into Frolf.

As mentioned above, we are playing with house money. It will come down to Jones... Can be make enough plays to beat Bama? Really, who knows?

Does no one notice how improved our D is? Hard to make a jump like we have as it is yet you all expect a jump to a top 10 D in one year. Crazy. Gotta remember that Apple, Lee, Bell, Bosa, Powell, McMillan are all underclassmen, too. Give it time.

This is true. But don't underestimate the impact that major sports success can have on the rest of the university. Donors and alumni love winners and are more likely to write that check to the English department. It's busted logic, but it's also the way people are. Also, it can have an impact on student applications. Think of how many alumni went to Ohio State because they grew up in awe of the football team. Think of it this way, the football team at Alabama is the most public piece of that university. What else do you ever hear about that school?

Also, don't underestimate the effect that a successful team has on the area and regional economy. Columbus and Ohio State football will be forever linked in the public consciousness. Area businesses make a killing on gameday because it is such a spectacle. Columbus companies use OSU event tickets to grease clients. When I travel for work, the buckeyes are always brought up by clients in discussion.

Now, I know Purdue will never be OSU, but if they won a few Big Ten titles in the span of 5 or 6 years, can you imagine the secondary impacts that would have on the school and the West Lafayette area? Outside of the Big Ten, what do average people know about Purdue? Do kids in California or Florida even know where Purdue is?

That Mgoblog article by Brian is completely ridiculous. He basically says he feels sympathetic toward Frank Clark, the abuser, and says people who dogged Clark for it are assholes.
