IMO, with a deep rotation like this, it's not that players "had better make the most of their opportunity," it's that they CAN make the most of them because they'll be fresh for 4 quarters now.
You weren't exactly wrong, they just stepped up when the lights became brighter.
Considering that's the biggest question coming out of this game, I'll surely take it. That's easily correctable, for players and coaches
It should scare everyone how good osu looked like, while only playing at maybe 75-80% of their max.
Given the backup qb's comments, I'll keep the same score, but switch the teams. ;)
34-24 Oklahoma. Hoping like crazy I'm wrong.
i agree okla didn't play the best against UH but I watched a team get dominated up front on both sides of the ball so IMO, was more of Houston controlling LOS than okla playing bad. I don't think osu is yet ready to control the los like that though.
Seriously, who is Ed Terwilliger? Not the first time I've seen that in the last couple days or so.. Hah
Hate that osu is the favorite. Wanted that slight little underdog edge.
Maybe it was the weather, defense, receivers not getting separation, but JT didn't have his finest game yesterday. Even when he was given time and had a receiver with a step, his throws were just off somewhat.
I don't expect that to be a theme moving forward though and I would still say the offensive line and DT/up the middle are the biggest questions heading into next week.
Malik Hooker is on an NFL roster at this time next year if he continues this kind of play all season. No disrespect to Vonn Bell or Tyvis but idk how they kept this guy off the field before now.
Didnt even have to look at the list to know Neil Armstrong was our most famous person. First man on the moon. Pretty cool from a place like Wapak.
1 Over. (66-17)
2. True (1 field goal)
3. True (Combine for 7, 3 passing, 2 rushing for JT, 2 for Samuel)
So instead 250-250 split, it'll be more like 500-200 is what you're saying? Haha
I believe the passing attack Tulsa has will provide osu with a great test leading up to Oklahoma next week. Just like BG usually has a solid shotgun, sometimes uptempo offense, these 2 games were good tune ups for that showdown in Norman. Will be interesting to see how osu fairs this week defensively. I'm not concerned about winning so much as seeing the defense tighten things up a bit more.
The only things worse than Wisconsin jumping all the way to #10 is lsu's Qb play and their play calling.
Those DT need to step up now in their leader's absence. That could be as vital as any part of this team to push for a deep run as this season wears on.
Stop the madness. Ohio State actually sucks and BG is trash. I don't understand how anyone could think that game makes Ohio State any better. Oklahoma, MSU, scum, they'll all smash osu by 30.
Can't afford any more injuries to the D line, specifically tackle, and don't need any to the o line either. Otherwise, this team is deep at the skill positions and although he didn't get a full playbook because of the score, burrow looked calm and confident for the most part in his limited snaps.
DT was my biggest concern to start the year and now a lot more so. The offense can help them out considerably by jumping out on teams early, especially against Oklahoma until those guys can get some experience and what to expect from playing more extended minutes.
Going to take a group effort to replace that spot but that Oklahoma game becomes even bigger for osu after the Houston upset.
45-14. Go Bucks!
1 Clemson. Watson would be enough said but he carries this team until the defense figures out how to replace their lost pieces and do so in time for FSU.
2. LSU. The defense and #7 lead the way, harris has his biggest game of the year against bama and they squeak out a close one for the west division title and then conf title.
3. Oklahoma. Quite possibly the most complete team in the country in terms of playmaking ability and experience, they escape 2 close ones early against UH and OSU to run the table in the down Big12 (I think texas finishes 2nd this year.) Still 3rd despite undefeated because of no conference championship.
4. OSU. A close early loss to okla in norman forces this young team to grow up quickly before they run roughshod over the conference. Theyll be ready for madison, happy valley, EL and the fighting khakis.
Unfortunately, OSU comes up short against clemson and the nation's best player who go on to win one this year against oklahoma.
I think clemson has a major rebuilding project coming after losing Watson next year so they need to get one now, if they can.
