Really? You want us to have a good belly laugh at people who shop at Wal-Mart? Too bad I'm not as rich as you to enjoy poking fun at poor folks.
"We're going to try our best."
Um, no. Sorry, but you're just wrong here. He's rushed for 1909 yards this year. You don't rush for that many yards by collecting enough boxtops, you get that many yards by running really really well, being the focus of the offense, and having a strong offensive line. After Western Illinois, his next lowest rushing game was 125 yards, and judging by the score, he sat for a lot of the game. If you think other teams have just been blowing him off, well, that's just not happening either. Everyone know what they're going to do. They're still doing it, which good on them and all.
Can he be stopped? Probably not dead cold, no. We can slow him down enough that they have to do other things, though, and that should get them off the field enough that our offense will build up a lead and get them off the gameplan. Frankly, it's not really important how many yards he runs for, what matters is the score at the end of the game. If we play them.
Well, we can still be B1G champions. Which we haven't been since 2010*. But, let's see what happens in the East, since, after all, there's a lot of football to be played. Freaking out about Wisco's running game is a little premature, since:
1) We have to win one of our next two games to get in.
2) Wisco needs to win its next two games to get in. (Well, there's more to it, but, hey.)
3) The best way to stop Wisco's running game is to hang fifty on them, anyway.
Well, that's a different case entirely, though, I think if Fickell goes, we just make Ash our DC. If Ash or both of them go. then get whoever is the best fit for the staff and players and that wants the job. If that's Muschamp, hire him. (I would argue that the confluence of this isn't very likely.)
(Also, I don't know why you got a DV, so have a UV from me.)
Well, depends what you mean by "Stop." If you mean "Hold him under 100 yards," well, sorry, that isn't going to happen, so just continue freaking out, since you have a pretty limited definition of stopping. That said, Wisco's QB is pretty much shit, so run the Bear, plug all the gaps with a body, beat your lineman and score on O. If we're up by two scores in the second half, they'll need to throw, and he'll sit.
All this is predicated on us playing them anyway. Let's not rush to assumptions.
Oh, and don't forget the amazing number of underclassmen, too. This is utter crazy talk.
Wait. So, in the first year of Ash/Fickell, (And it takes a couple of years to learn a D scheme) we're 17th in total D, and 25th in scoring D, and you want to fire them and get Will Muschamp? Are you nuts?
Let's be honest. All that matters is winning out for us- if we don't win out, then there's no playoff. If we do, getting in depends way more on people ahead of us losing than the score of the Minnesota game. I suspect there's a myopia at work here- we assume that the Committee is sitting around, analyzing this game in minute detail. I doubt that happened- they see "Yup, OSU won. Who won Alabama Miss State?"
Solid Mix, Ohio.
Hey, if it motivates him to go to medical school and cure cancer, works for me. 'Cause fuck cancer.
Isn't Archie his middle name? I just assumed "Two Time Heisman Trophy Winner" was his first name. God knows, if I won two Heismans, I'd damn well change my name to that.
If this is from the coaching staff, then Bosa graded higher. Remember, they look at every play with the play call sheet and the breakdown of the opposing play. They then determine if the player played their responsibility correctly, made good play against opposing players, and so forth. If Bosa graded higher, he played more plays correctly than Grant did.
If this is from the media, it was because of the last play.
I think the announcer said that, and just made a mistake- during the innings of college overtime, you swap who has the ball first. I think that little detail got lost in the excitement.
I guess I'm the only one who kinda likes the response? I mean, it would be hilarious, and more people deserve face-punching for saying dumb things.
Funny, just last week everyone loved Jalin Marshall on the kick returns... it's like he's a freshman learning the game, or something.
Hey, we'd all love improved quarterback play. But, that said, I'm assuming you fell asleep sometime in the second half, since Barrett won the game in overtime.
Because we didn't? Either you watched a different game, or you can't recognize different plays. Go watch the 3rd quarter again, pay close attention this time, and you'll see what happened/
It's a really, really good way to fumble if you don't practice it. And if you're only going to use it in short yardage, do you want to take time to learn it? Remember, the NCAA limits practice time pretty drastically.
I actually disagree. At this point, we need a lot of two loss teams- we don't want to be in a mire of 1 loss teams come decision time. ND has more loseable games on their schedule than FSU. If FSU had lost, they would have been more likely to win out, and we'd be up against them. If they win out now, they'll go, but ND has a better chance of getting dropped from consideration by getting a second loss.
I don' t have a watch, but Michigan sucks.
...Wait, there was some way other than elevenwarriors.com?
I read this first as "Tresselpunk", and though that would be pretty awesome.
That link has some images from the game, game. There may be dozens of people there.
