I wouldn't make too much of co-coordinator titles. In many cases that's about salaries and future opportunities. New head coaches are usually former coordinators so an assistant with that goal naturally wants the title - and the money, of course.

But that doesn't mean one thing when it comes to game day responsibilities. Each coach has the responsibility that Urban says he has. Period.

That was not the problem against PSU and UM. Prince struggled with a quick outside step in both games and players, namely Garrett Sickles and Taco Charlton, were in Barrett's face immediately. 

Occasionally Barrett will try to keep a play alive that isn't there. But that isn't the main issue.

That's always been my complaint with that loss. Kick it, go for it, I'm good either way. Just call time out and get yourself organized.

Disagree about the PSU offense though. They had hardly been a juggernaut that night. They had one drive with two jump ball long completions. I would trust the defense up 21 - 17.

I have no idea what basis UMinn had to make these suspensions. Sometimes evidence that can't be admitted in court can be used in an administrative hearing. The quantum of proof is much lower too.

That said, the Duke case was terrible for two reasons. Obviously young students were wrongly smeared and nearly convicted. But now every other accusation causes everyone to remember that case. Suspects are viewed as victims. The pressure to keep quiet means that very few false accusations come to light. Still due process is a MUST so everyone has faith in the result.

The problem is that today everyone, liberals and conservatives, assesses results based on their world view and no one trusts that the people involved actually did their job

Didn't this Barrett you speak of just win the Silver Football award after going 11-1 and lost that game by just 3 points when his special teams teammates imploded and he spent the entire game running for his life? Because the guy you describe sounds like the QB of some middling team going to the Poulan Weedeater Bowl. 

Is this QB of ours perfect? No. But I'm completely comfortable having him lead my alma mater in the CFP.

I'm ok with JT's decision making. He doesn't make the big turnover. That may be the key to this game.

I expect Clemson to start fast and OSU to reel them in in the second quarter as OSU makes it's typical adjustments. But a big second half turnover could be key in OSU's favor. And I love Barrett in the fourth quarter. That's him at his best.
