His stats were okay, but they don't tell the full story. He didn't really have much of an impact, and was almost a non-factor for a large part of the game. That OSU speed was too much for him.

If I remember correctly it was sort of like a split screen type of thing. They would show the play full screen, and in between plays they would have a split screen and the coaches/analysts would discuss the development of the game, what to expect, what happened. It was actually really cool to watch. I watched that and the spider camera on WatchEspn for the entire Nat'l Championship game last year, it was really cool.

Harbaugh has never been at the top of his profession, not at the college level nor in the NFL...that would require winning championships. His track record in the NFL so far resembles Rex Ryan's when Rex first started with the Jets. I'm not hating, Harbaugh is a good coach, but chill out man, you sound like an idiot. To be at the "top" you must win it all...like Urban did...twice.

"Cardale is a better deep ball thrower" sounds more like an opinion to me. Throwing a ball farther than someone else doesn't mean you throw a better deep ball. JT has some excellent touch on his deep pass. An 80 yard throw is meaningless if its not on target.

If you are using last nights performance as evidence that CJ is a better deep ball passer than JT, well then I think you are taking a tremendous amount of credit from Devin Smith...dude made some insane catches. Now I am not saying CJ didn't make good throws, he was excellent yesterday, just saying 2 of the 3 TD's don't happen w/o Smith's ability to take the ball.

They can run the ball and stop the run. They are pretty good against the pass as well. They are not very good at taking care of the football. The defense and MG3 carries the team. MG3 is the body and the defense is the head (brain), as Joe Frazier said...kill the body and the head will die.

I was thinking about this too as I was writing out the post and I could not come to a clear conclusion. Maybe these numbers can help us reach the answer to the question you posed. This is what I have:

Wisconsin is ranked 35th in the country in tackles for loss, and 21st in the country in sacks. Put into perspective, Ohio State is ranked 8th and 11th respectively. 

The stats will show that Wisconsin this year has allowed an average of 4.2 yards per play (#5), whether it be 1st, 2nd, or 3rd down. This does not tell us very much though. But for perspective, in this statistic Penn State comes in at #1 in the country, allowing 4 yards per play, and Michigan State ranks 15th at 4.7 yards/play, which is the same yards allowed per play by our Buckeyes. Now, take that into account and consider that:

1) they (they being Wisconsin) are allowing only 13.5 first downs per game (#1 in the country, PSU is #2 and MSU is #3, Ohio St. #23 w/19);

2) they allow 3.1 yards per rushing attempt (OSU allows 4 yards per attempt)

3) they allow 5.7 rushing first downs per game (MSU and PSU 1 and 2 respectively...OSU #39)

4) they allow 6.2 yards per pass attempt (#19...OSU sits at #13 w/ 6 yards per pass and MSU also allows only 6 yards per pass)

5) and they allow 6.4 passing first downs per game

After all of this data is processed, I really can't say I have a definitive answer to your question...what can you get it by looking at the numbers?

Ah yes, excellent point, So perfect practice makes perfect...now if only we can learn how to do things perfectly before we practice them. This might take a while.
