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.
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.
A. Winfield on defense and Orlando Pace on offense.
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
Zeke's having a great year and for the most part gets over shadowed by JT's great year. Love them both!
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.
I am only interested in TG at any position other than QB. Not saying he is capable but I don't see him beating out any of the guys we have or will have.
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.
Herman has to call a great game and we can't lose our identity on offense like we did against PSU.
I think we play great on defense but will have trouble scoring. We have to hope that JT's knee is solid because I feel like his running ability is going to be essential to our offense. I see a close game but in the end we lose a close game 14-10.
We struggled against a decent Penn St defense on the road at night and I don't see it being any easier in East Lansing Saturday night. This is by far the best team we've faced all season and they will be " jacked up" to play us. We have to play our best game on both sides of the ball and hope that Herman calls a great game. Personally I see us playing really good on defense but offensively we will struggle to put up enough points in a close game that we lose 14-10. I really hope I'm wrong but I haven't seen anything from this team that makes me think differently.
No love for Golden Grahams?
Firstly- if Braxton can come back healthy and no complications. People forget that his type of injury has no garuntees that he will have the same arm strength as before. There is a chance his throwing days are over.
Secondly- gonna be really hard to not give Braxton his spot back but it is gonna be just as hard to tell JT he has to play back up for a season. Tough tough decision for Urban.
JT reminds me of Troy a little bit. Maybe not as elusive but as effective a passer we've seen in years. His future is bright and we get him for 3 more years.
I think MSU is still a legit team and with help they could possibly squeeze into a top 4 spot if they run the table. Personally I'd love to see MSU get another chance against Oregon on a neutral field. I thought they had there chances in Eugene but got outplayed late in that game. That is the only team I see with a legit chance form B1G and for them to move from 10th to top 4 isn't a crazy idea at all especially if there one loss was at Oregon. IMO
I usually find $10-$20 parking spots along N. High near Hudson. I found a lot behind Hound Dogs building at $10. Nice walk but I usually make a few pit stops at local bars along the way.
1.Troy Smith is the best QB OSU has had to this day. His senior season was as good as we will ever see and he got us to the BCS Title game and won a Heisman in a landslide. 2. TP had great success and won a lot of games as a 3 year starter. Probably the most physically gifted athlete OSU has ever had. 3. Krenzel got the Us the Ring and made big plays all year but the least talented of all four. Great leader and super tough dude but averaged 150 passing a game. 4.Braxton is probably best running QB we've had but an average arm.
I have a pair at 1C row 9 seats 6-7 that I will sell at face value. Has to be local exchange and I paid $238 for both.
I am dumping my tickets for that particular game because I'm having surgery on my ankle that Friday and won't be walking or getting out of bed for a few days. I understand everyone's concerns for marked up tickets but you all don't have to buy them. Pretty simple IMO.
Vivid Seats best available 2 seats together is $158 per and that is 12C Row 29. Stubhub cheapest pair together is $167. Yeah you can find tons of great deals for single tickets but seats together aren't as cheap. Cheapest 1C tickets on either were both around $300 each so I'm not far off. Someone make me a decent offer and they are yours. FYI 1C Row9 are pretty solid seats and great view point.
