Totally agree on elflein. In what world should a center need to pull to cover a defense end? I could understand a guard in certain situations but asking your center, who already has the big job of snapping the ball and coming off fast, to pull to play tackle basically, a position he probably isn't well suited for is questionable at best.

But like the post below this, what penn state, wisc, scum, neb have done recently is in response to Ohio state. Hoke wasn't terrible in the beginning and had some decent teams in AA. But he couldn't beat an actually osu team, 2011 notwithstanding. They all needed someone who could recruit with Meyer and up the ante so to say.

I don't think "common opponents" need come into play when 2 teams play head to head. PSU would have a conf title in part because they beat the team they're now comparing them too. It would force the committee to make the distinction: better resume and stronger OOC scheduling OR conference title. Which is more important. Could easily see the latter.

Over the past 15 years Ohio State has lost 18 conference games - five coming during that 2011 blip alone. During that same period the Wolverines have lost 12 games to just Ohio State.

Wow. That's incredible.

Meyer and Meyer alone ramped up recruiting. And that includes recruiting harbaugh back to ichigan and opening the checkbook for him. All these teams saw Ohio state take off and when Ohio state said "come with us or get left behind", some of them decided to make necessary changes to come with them. But this started long before harbaugh ever arrived in AA.

My point would be: if the receiver isn't sitting still, and it's just a throw to a direct spot, Barrett isn't very good right now. He isn't completing hardly any passes where the receiver is on the move. Whether it's deep, short, or in between. You have to be able to hit the quick outs and crossing patterns like he missed to brown and even the screen to Samuel. The deep passes he misses usually aren't missed because they're "overthrown", but rather because they're not thrown on the correct line for where the receiver is running too. Idk why he can't figure it out but they better if they plan to make noise, assuming they make the playoff.

For the first time since Rutgers, this team didn't play to competition, took it to Nebraska early and often, sent a message to TTUN and the rest of college football but that they're not about to go away quietly this year. Peaking in November is urban's specialty and it looks like this year may be more of the same.

USV Rams first playoff appearance in school history. D7R28. Their coach is an alum of my high school and I went to school with his brother for a couple years. A big rival of ours that we always beat while I was in school. :)

I get it's easier to dissect and change after a loss but I thought last week would force changes without a loss. I was wrong. This team has quite a few issues and if your line can't control scrimmage it does make it difficult but playcalling doesn't help out one single bit. If you can't win LOS based on talent, you HAVE to be unpredictable. Osu is not. At all.
