I like how we have time to grow up once we get through OU. Army through Maryland will be an opportunity to develop depth and experience. 

Iowa will probably be the trap game similar to PSU this year.  They will probably lose several games before they play us then come out swinging against us because everyone wants to beat OSU. We will have just come off a big revenge night game against PSU and it is hard to bring your best stuff two weeks in a row.

Maybe we can hire him as a behind the scenes, non-coaching, advisor role.  That could work for at least a year or two before we either promote him or he gets hired away as a coordinator elsewhere.  Alabama didn't even wait for Sark's hangover to feel better before snatching him up.

When Brian Kelly pulled his NFL ripcord and left Eugene, Boise State coach Chris Petersen held interest in the job.

I think you have the wrong Kelly there. Brian Kelly is the one who has had a few flashy wins but falters in the most important games while he tries to micromanage everyone. Then again, maybe there is no difference after all. 

Hoping today is a 10 star day.

So they're expectation is that the committee will take both OSU and UM over the winner of the PSU UW game because of head to head match ups even though the conference champion will also have two losses?  Seems very unlikely.

Hearing that this young team wasn't hanging their heads or pointing fingers but was focused on correcting problems at halftime after two quarters like that may be the single most encouraging statement about this team yet.  Though it's less fun for the fans, we got a lot more out of our win than Alabama got out of trouncing the Vols  this week.

Weather is looking a little more positive tonight. Currently the highest hourly chance of precipitation for game time is 60% at 10:00 pm. I had seen it more likely and lasting longer earlier yesterday or the day before.

Although the tweet is highly unrecommended, it sounds like so,etching fans tweet all the time. It must be hard to keep that border between fan and commit because being a commit does make you a fan if you weren't already. 

Also, Stave was awful. He is Wisconsin's Bausserman except Stave started for what felt like 12 years.

Being number one over number two may have serious advantages considering opponent when the playoffs start. Personally I'd rather play Washington than Clemson if that's how it is going to play out. 

Comment 04 Oct 2016

Either Paul Chryst or Mike Riley will win it depending on who wins the game they play with each other. Both will lose to Ohio State, one of them likely will lose to us twice, but they will get it anyways. 

Comment 03 Oct 2016

I'm impressed that they have mastered this amount of variety with such a young team early in the season. 

We need a more developed deep pass game. I hope they make it a point of emphasis against Indiana and throw it deep several times. This will put other teams safeties in even more conflict than they should be now with the combination of inside and outside.

What progress do you want to see coming out of the bye week?  

How many runs will JT have against Rutgers?  It's Rutgers (sorry Ash) so I'm hoping five at most and try to get more wide receivers meaningfully involved.

he has very similar size to Darron Lee.

Honest question, are you sure?  I've seen mgo blog threads debating his height and I honestly think he's like 5'10", maybe shorter. Lee is a legit 6'1" that is often listed at 6'2".  I don't think he has the frame to be a true outside linebacker. More of a nickel hybrid which is fine but different.

I think OU has been dragged down by the current Big 12. The whole conference plays basketball on grass type football and it makes it hard to win games against physical teams.
