Redshirt freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett threw two rare interceptions and struggled with accuracy at times (you know, if you want to call 25-of-35 for 302 yards and four touchdowns struggling)

He had some difficult moments throwing downfield.  The stats don't tell the whole story.  Jalin's 54 yard touchdown was a touch pass that is nothing more than an extended handoff (there were at least a couple of those) and Jalin bailed him out on an overthrow with the one-handed TD catch.

Just not one of JT's better days throwing downfield.  They happen.

If Wisky is the CG opponent do not overlook what Tanner McEvoy brings to their run game.

The breakdown on Diamont's 50+ yard run was not good either.  Steve Miller went inside,and left no one on the edge as Perry picked up the tight end and was taken to the sideline.

 Gordon fumbles again.  That's 3 in 3 halves of play.

Yet another reason why I think Zeke is underrated.

I hope the committee isn't that simplistic.  TCU played Minnesota at home in the 3rd game of the season in nice weather.  Minnesota is playing better than they did back then, the game is at their place with temps in the low 20s and a decent chance of snow.  Let TCU play the Gophers now in those conditions and then compare.

With the way Wisconsin has been playing the past 2 weeks, especially on defense, I wouldn't pencil in Nebraska as the West's BCG representative yet.  Especially since the Cornhuskers have to face them in Camp Randall.

With Ohio State commitment George Hill lined up with him, Scott may be a part of the best backfield in high school football.

IMO, the best running attack in Ohio is Cincinnati's LaSalle's with Jarell White (sophomore) and Jeremy Larkin (junior).  Larkin ran for over 200 yards against Moeller, White ran for over 160 against St X and both backs ran for over 200 yards against Elder.  Those are insane numbers against that quality of competition.

I didn't see the offense grow until after the VT game.  Up until then it looked like a Braxton Miller offense without Miller (and Hyde).   The VT loss forced the staff to change.  It's not obvious to me that Miller couldn't run this kind of offense.

If he could take care of the cockroach problem while he was there that would be great.

This is the first time the offense was stopped for most of the game.  They scored 24 against Sparty (it should have been more and IMO wasn't all due to MSU's D) and 35 against Clemson.  Also, they picked up 300 yards in this game despite many mistakes and very good play on VT's part.  A little over 100 yards on the ground is not good  but offenses that really get stifled don't get 100 yards for the game.

The "one-off" explanation would fly better if this game had been in the middle of the season where the D had only a week to prepare,  But that was not the case.

These were bowl games from 3+ years ago, but both Iowa and LSU faced Georgia Tech, a triple option team.  With time to prepare, both of them shut the attack down.

In the end Navy got the ball quickly to the edge and had success.  That has me a bit uneasy until I see the back 7 perform in next week's game.

When this offense gels, watch out...it will be fun to watch.

Yeah, it will.  But that gelling is something that concerns me a little bit.  This is the second game of the season and I expect it to be a real test of the rebuilt OL.  Hopefully they gel quickly.

Yep, at least partially.  Legally the onus is on the driver.  But from a common sense POV it is on both.

When I am driving and approach an intersection with a green light I still slow down and look to make sure someone isn't blowing the light, whether they brain fart or are being chased by the cops, as a T-boning is going to ruin my day and maybe my life.  Having the law on my side doesn't make the result better.

I have seen it stated "One wants to be right, but not dead right."
