The world is broader than the 11W comment section. I see silly stuff about it on Twitter and Facebook all the time and even run into people in real life who think it's time for a change. Last time Matta had back-to-back years with fourth/fifth place finishes in conference he came back to win the B1G the next couple years. I'll give him time to whip this young team into shape.
You'll have to ask Johnny. It's his pic.
No mention of the first 2 drives in the first quarter against VA Tech? They were textbook....but I can understand overlooking them as VT took our punch and took the lead at the half.
Well, no mention unless you count this as a mention:
In fact, the season started with a nice drive, covering 64 yards on eight plays in just a tick over four minutes, culminating in a 24-yard touchdown pass from Cardale Jones to Curtis Samuel. The second drive of the year was a one-play, 80-yard effort, with Ezekiel Elliott doing all the work on one rushing attempt. It took 13 seconds.
Reality check: Sure Oklahoma in Oklahoma will be tough, real tough. But the other non-conf. games are against Tulsa and Bowling Green. Whoop-tee-doo.
If the 2016 schedule is the toughest since 2001, that says more about how weak the scheduling has been for 15 years, than about how tough 2016 will be.
This story is about the road schedule only, not the overall schedule. Moose out front shoulda told ya.
Apologies, guys. I suck. I usually write these at the office where I have a two-screen setup and it's easier for my brain. All the toggling back and forth between multiple windows on the laptop last night obviously confused my brain. It's fixed. The broader points remain, but I still owe you a beer. Perhaps something from Land Grant.
We didn't have a goofy enough picture of you, Eric.
Speaking on behalf of the author, I think Conner is one of those hard-nosed throwback B1G linebackers who maybe won't pop on the speed chart but makes up for it by knowing what's going on before it happens. I'm thinking of guys like Spielman and Wilhelm. I may be nuts, but I think Kwon could slide out and take some snaps on the outside because he's a physical freak. Perhaps I'm putting too much credence in what I've seen from Conner so far, which is solely high school tape and a Spring Game, but I am impressed by it to this point.
