With four spots in the playoff and very few undefeated teams, all one loss teams are contenders of varying likelihood, but contenders all the same.

If JT can come out and play smart and confident and distribute the ball like he has been all year, I'll feel a hell of a lot better about the trip to MSU.

I am really glad that he gets to experience it in a very winnable game against an over matched PSU team before experiencing it against a formidable opponent like MSU. Assuming that PSU plays as poorly as I expect them to, this should be a great training wheels introduction into hostile road games at night.

Ok, I understand.  I just didn't read closely enough, but it sounds like we want the same thing because you still have the conference championships right after the season.  I wouldn't mind a one week break before them, but I don't like waiting to eliminate any of the eight teams in a playoff until late December or early January, with the rest of the playoff the weeks directly after, as I have seen suggested by others who support an eight team playoff.  More than anything else, I don't want the playoffs to be three straight weeks of games which would be more about avoiding injuries than being the better team.

If I had money to bet, and a way to do it that I felt comfortable in, I would jump all over that line.

I think he's thrown more interceptions than touchdowns up to this point.  Also, he has a completion percentage slightly below sixty.

I'm not too worried.

Mr Baker come on down.

I think everyone understands the need to win with a statement every game when you're trying to make up ground in the rankings. It's nice that he has the wherewithal to admit it to himself rather than be spiteful.

 I wouldn't necessarily consider this season a failure after some of the adversity we've faced if we still get the chance to play against, and defeat, a big name team in a bowl game.

i really agree with this. I just want to win out. If that doesn't include the playoffs, so be it. It will be a lot of fun anyways, and set us up well for next year because the team will be pissed about being left out. 

As for who we play, I just want it to be whoever has the best record and gains us the most respect by us beating them.  I'm more interested in getting closer to national respect than grudge matchups, but if we could have both at the same time I would be ecstatic.

It is relatively easy for us to make an argument about us not being the same team that lost to them. We were really young, particularly at quarterback, and have improved by an incredible amount already. Whether they buy what we are selling or not is another matter entirely, however that is our argument. 

Also, our fan base has money and would travel to Antarctica to watch us play. People may say this doesn't matter, but until small schools get into the playoff, I will believe that money talks.

I really want a number 16 jersey.  Has anyone seen any yet?  I have mostly just seen the and 1 jerseys.

Comment 16 Oct 2014

Meyer said they were trying to keep from wearing out Barrett's arm so I wouldn't be surprised if they practiced it more over this bye week. It'll have the most success if he has enough reps to run the zone read with the right reads consistently.  I wouldn't mind if we practice it but save it for MSU.

Playing both Michigan and Penn State already this year will make a defensive line look good, or at least better than they are, so I have no idea how good Rutgers is. 

Comment 14 Oct 2014

We seem to be recruiting a lot of lineman that have the athleticism to play end, and the size to play tackle. Personally, I love it. You end up with guys like Washington, and hopefully Bosa. Over time the coaches can maximize each player by specializing them as one or the other. 

Comment 14 Oct 2014

I like your criteria. Personally I will add get at least one interception that isn't a Nova mental breakdown like in their Penn State game.

After reading that article I doubt that FSU could field a team without help from the Tallahassee Police Department.
