Clark got the offer because as a freshman he was aready prototypical College QB size and cannon arm. I've watched him and he is a work in progress but 2 more seasons left so we have time to see if he lives up to the hype.  I'm not a big fan of offering High School sophomore or younger but I guess you have to take that chance as a coach or someone else will come in and gobble him up.

I totally agree with OP.  Gibson is a spectacular athlete but I just don't see him getting much playing time as our QB. Gibson excites me as anything else but QB.

Hopefully this is all just extra motivation for our players to prove that they belong in top 4.

We were told parking near stadium was limited so we took a shuttle from our hotel near the airport. Do not rely on a taxi especially after the game. We went down about 3 hours before kickoff and could not find a bar or restaurant that was even allowing us in the front door. We made our way to the convention center and found a place that was serving beer and food. The B1G has a large area setup in the main rooms that is worth checking out as well. Traffic from C-bus to Indy was heavy both ways so be prepared for an extra hour travel.

Andy Katzenmoyer in the 97' Rosebowl vs ASU.  3 sacks, 1 int, 12 tackles. That team was loaded but the Big Cat dominated that game and was incredibly disruptive. He was everywhere. 

Speilman's 29 tackle vs UM was pretty special too

You don't drink but you responded to a previous post about what you like to drink for The Game  " start with a few bloody Mary's then switch to beer".

Don't we have 11W Jail for threads like these? Dumbest forum I've ever seen and the guy that started it should be ashamed. 

Comment 28 Nov 2014

I don't think you'll need to or be able to go to the other side of the stadium to watch band at halftime. You should be able to see from your seats. I do recommend texting in your seats about 20 minutes before kickoff to see the band entrance.

What scares me the most is that Wisconsin can mix in the pass and  has a good defense to boot with Gordon running over/thru everyone. 

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Friend of mine was an assistant at a  small D2 University in the Pitt area  and went to several of his High school games to scout other players. Basically said he was obviously a freak athlete with speed, size, ups and pretty much everything you need to be a D1 basketballer except that he couldn't shoot outside, inside, any side. Sometimes you can work on that aspect of the game but most times you either got a shooters touch or you don't and TP didn't.

I like the new playoff system but I wish it didn't solely depend on a committee to simply choose the top 4. I wish that they could have implemented some sort of formula that includes computer rankings mixed with committee selection. I think the 3 most important criteria in selecting top 4 should start with 1. Strength of schedule 2. Head to head match ups 3. Quality of loss. ( in order of importance). I do t understand how Baylor could be below TCU when they beat them? 

I didn't mind the old system but wasn't a big fan of some of the polls they used to determine the final rankings. Don't fix what isn't broken? They seemed to get it right just about every year but I could see how they would want to add 2 teams to make it a playoff.  I really hope they do not add more teams because I really think 4 is plenty and adding more will just put teams that don't really deserve being on the field with top teams. 

Don't sleep on Condy Rice, she has a genius football IQ and will most likely be our next NFL commissioner. I like the diversity and she knows football!

Whatever you do DO NOT make the mistake of relying on a cab for transportation especially after the game is over because you will be waiting for hours. Personally I don't think I'd ever go to that game again unless I'm staying within walking distance to the stadium. We stayed near the Airport and the hotel was nice but we waited long time for transportation and we weren't the only ones.c

The topic may be something to debate in the off season but there is no doubt that this will be the HOT topic of next years pre season. 

Comment 02 Nov 2014

I think that we can win but there just isn't anything I've seen this year that logically says we go into EL at night and take this game. I think it will be a close game  but in the end we lose 14-10. JT's knee isn't %100 and his running ability is the key to us winning. OL hasn't sold me and if PSU can give us problems then MSU will for sure. There is such a thing as being a die hard Buckeye fan and having a sense of realism too. I really hope I'm wrong but unfortunately we can't win them all.
