Walked by the practice fields last night and they were blasting in crowd noise in preparation for this. Looked like they were practicing a goal line QB keeper with Cardale. Was pretty cool to see at a distance.
We probably don't beat Wisconsin by as much with JT as QB though throwing those bombs which means TCU or Baylor gets the 4th spot in the playoffs.
MSU apparently has a trademark on "good defense".
Yeah and did he miss JT's last 2 games against Michigan and Indiana where the offense was god awful.
Minus the MSU game JT put up all his numbers against awful competition. He struggled bad the last 2 games he played against Indiana and Michigan. We dont win the national title with Barrett as QB last year. I think people really overrated how good JT is because his stats are all inflated due to a pretty awful regular season schedule last year. The offense looked at its best in the Meyer era under Cardale.
Also, we should be running the read option way less than we have been. We lost 2 QBs because of out overuse of it. I'd be so happy if we reduced the number of QB runs by 80%.
I feel more confident with Cardale at QB given our O-line and Zeke at RB. We don't need a running QB with Zeke, Marshall, Dontre, Braxton, etc.
Barrett had a ton of stretches last season where he was pretty bad- see large chunks of Penn State, Indiana, and Michigan games. He put up record numbers against a horrid schedule strength wise. On the other hand Cardale put up very decent numbers against 3 top 15 teams under a ton of pressure. I really don't get how this QB battle is so close? Good stats against bad teams vs. decent stats against great teams?
Or a Philly Brown / Dontre/ Jalin
We've been sooo bad at punt returns under Urban.
I would say that was more out of necessity since Cardale isn't the thrower that JT is. Urban went ultra conservative on the offense in the playoffs. Plus the oline the last part of the year was elite compare to the first half of the year before the MSU game.
If he has a Manziel-esque season he could very well be in the draft this year since he is a RS-Soph.
That's pretty silly. Should have kept 5. Everyone knows him as that.
Nike probably doesnt want to waste the massive stock of jerseys they already produced so they shoddily added a leaf to what was already in stores
Will be nice when the day comes that people dont get in trouble for pot.
Worth waiting until the Buckeye's clinch a spot in it. Was super easy to get tickets last year (didnt even sell out) and even a few weeks before the MSU game 2 years ago.
That being said. Really fun to go. Atmosphere at this game is better imo than games at The Shoe.
Don't worry, Shamrock Towing will find a way to get to that car.
The 2012 season had so many close and exciting games.
I think it's kinda fun to root for the Midwest. During OOC games and bowl games I want the B1G to win (minus Michigan). During conference play I like to see some upsets though.
He looks so slow. He's not gonna be good in the NBA for a few years
Also some of the names have faded too. Definitely should be replaced.
NBA offseason has had so many huge contracts for mediocre players.
I could see Urban wanting to bring Notre Dame back to glory after he coaches here for 5-6 more years then takes an ESPN media break for a year or two.
Weirdest June ever.
Getting to learn from Kobe is gonna do dreams for him.
God I wish we had solid role players last season. Wasted a year of the #2 pick in the draft...sigh.
Happy he's on the Lakers!
I would pay like 1000 bucks to see Lebron suit up in the scarlet and grey for a game. Cardale can just throw bombs to him all game.
