Also offensive plays per game will affect this, not to mention Tressel's don't-run-up-the-score philosophy.  Smith was amazing but change is inevitable.

Definitely, it also may make it so they don't have to slow down at all. A handoff may require slowing a bit to take it cleanly.

Amir Williams and Curtis Grant have shared similar careers despite playing different sports. Both came in as highly ranked recruits that have generally been viewed as underwhelming early in their career but get a little better each year. Personally I always hope players like them find at least one year of legitimate success as a pay off for their commitment to this university.

I would never be brave enough to ask for anything, even something as trivial as a pen, back from Bosa.

After the Cincinnati game I called my dad and said something along the lines of "Holy **** do we have a quarterback and the next few years are going to be really fun".

2016 has a lot of talent at running back (Hill, McCall, Walker, Holyfield, etc.). Will we try to get two?  Or possibly switch someone to h back if we are lucky enough to have two that want in?

I think the day off was more to benefit us in the B1G championship game than in the Minnesota game. Everyone (backups included) worked hard to prepare for MSU. I'm sure they could muster the energy to keep going the week after but week after week without a little break wears you down by the conference championship. The surprisingly difficult game at TSUN definitely hurt us last year against Sparty, Meyer is just trying to avoid a similar late season burn out.

We need the B1G to help us out by guaranteeing us a game with Wisconsin or Nevraska every year. Make it the first conference game of the year so they may be undefeated when it is played and it won't be too close to the championship game when we may play them again.

At the beginning of the year I may have expected to enjoy watching Nebraska vs Wisconsin, but I definitely didn't expect to really care who won for the sake of our own future perception.

Lets get Conley some good experience in the next few weeks so he's more solid by the time we need the depth in the post season. This will also let Apple get completely healthy rather than let the injury linger. 

Samuel returned a kick at the end of the game, I expected him to take over as kick returner. 

We need to start getting the ball in Brown's hands in meaningful touches at the H to have two solid options again like before Wilson got hurt. Although two tight end sets, one close to the line, one wide, may become used more often. 

Personally is like to see if we can expand the wide receiver core by one with someone like James Clark so that if Spencer or either Smith spends time in the slot, we have enough fresh legs.

I think this team worked so hard during the week that a whole weekend is what they need to avoid burning out. Urban knows that the team will be in the B1G championship without an extra week off. 

I predict that weekend off will make us play better against Minnesota than if we started Sunday.

This is really worth reading. They discuss why we are so much faster than them. 

Comment 09 Nov 2014

Devin Smith's development this year is a huge résumé builder for Zach Smith. Corey Smith isn't there yet though. Damn, if you yell "hey smith" in the wide reliever room half the room would respond. 

But seriously, it took some time but I see solid development from all of our wide receivers. One good receiver could be luck, the whole group playing well is coaching. If you dot believe me, just ask TSUN.

He's a perfect sleeper agent that is very non biased most of the time so that he can have credibility now when he rises up and talks us one step closer to the playoffs.
