First of all... enough of the "Tom Herman was God" talk. At this point in '14, we were all calling for his head and his job.  A championship run apparently erased all of those foul memories forever. 

I love JT. But, the last two weeks he has been really bad/slow at making decisions when throwing. He's been a half second slow to throw all season, but his receivers have generally bailed him out. His long ball looks really bad, minus the great throw to Dontre.  He's a great leader and an excellent runner.  And I'm glad he's on our team, but get the passing game going fellas!

What drives me mad are lack of sideline adjustments.  Halftime adjustments are phenomenal and I cannot understand why they act all surprised when an opposing team throws a new wrinkle into their game plan and we can't adjust until halftime. 

When Urbans offenses are clicking, they look unstoppable. But, when they're struggling, there is absolutely no flow to anything. They try to get too cute. Pound Weber up the middle more.  Throw an occasional screen.  Dontre looks like he's ready to go off at any moment.  Why they can't get him more involved is beyond me. Where are the end-around plays at?  Jazz was killing us last night... until we FINALLY made halftime adjustments. 

Also, I'm a 45 year old guy who apparently doesn't know what a legal catch is anymore.  Conley's INT was a damn catch in my book. As was Marshon's overturned INT earlier in the year... Sigh.  

One last thing and I'll shut up. I think people forget how difficult it is to go undefeated.  In nearly 40 years of watching football, I have never witnessed a team blowing through a season uncontested and doing it all while looking fabulous at the "eye test".  We've got a great team and are going to be tough to beat. But it's going to be stressful at times.  GO BUCKS!!!!

I don't really have a problem with Barnett or Saban here.  Sure, Nicky wasn't very "PC", and he should know better, but times have certainly changed which is all I think he was trying to say.

Well that's too bad, if true.  I was really rooting for the kid.

Wiping that smart ass smirk off of Jake the snakes ugly mug still makes me feel all warm n fuzzy inside.

I have no ill will toward Iowa. But am I happy for them?  Eh, sure why not?

You know what? If this is about his recruitment, he needs to shut up. He's not bigger than any program. He's only hurting himself and if he doesn't tread lightly, he's going to be forgotten quickly. 

You don't come to Ohio State and cry about playing for those guys.....  Dumb, dumb, dumb.

All I know is when I was a 20 year old football player, I'd have never had the courage to question my coaches.  They'd have ran me to Cleveland and back! Oh the good ol days....

I don't know.  The first thing I think of when you have foul weather is to rely on a strong running game.  MSU did that, we did not even try... with our actual running back anyway.   This, folks, was a terrible coaching job,no, a pathetic coaching job.  

Still, firing Urban is just silly anger.
