Damn, you had to figure he would be shadowing Greene all game, who might be the most underrated/clutch player in the country. Don't know who else they would have to step up to the task.
I was at the game, and one thing that struck me when we first got into the stadium was just how pumped Wisconsin fans got whenever they saw some other Badger fans, like they were few and far between. It wasn't until we got into our seats and started doing a pre-game O-H-I-O around the stadium that you could hear and feel just how overwhelmingly pro-OSU the stadium was. By the late 3rd quarter, when the Wisconsin fans had left, there was one sliver/corner that was empty, and a pretty much packed crowd everywhere else. Easily 75-25 OSU, based on how loud we were, you would have thought it was 90-10.
Russell Wilson only set the all-time record for pass efficiency in a season, I'd say he's a good candidate (if we're just saying best since VY).
Gah, beat me to it by 4 minutes. Gotta feel good about our chances...
Forgot to mention, said his best relationship was with Larry Johnson
Had a great visit yesterday, and during an interview earlier today, stated that he no longer has a favorite, more a top group of Notre Dame, OSU, MSU, Michigan. Wants to get back to Notre Dame, and visit Penn St. at some point.
Love it. I say offer both Jones and Waller when Herman swings west (which I thought was this coming week?).
Does anybody think of Bryce Petty when watching him?
Has to feel extra sweet for these guys, considering that we've had our National Title runs foiled year after year by USC for about 5-6 years now.

Has anyone pointed out the "You're tip can remain anonymous"?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought this was the story Anderson was talking about, since it came out about 2 days after his twitter comments:
If so, talk about not living up to the hype.
Yup, this season especially is going to be a year-long zero tolerance policy
I think he's looking at Lattimore for the 3rd? We'll see on that one, he's certainly close. I agree that Webb could move up to a 5, I've yet to hear a negative comment about him this recruiting cycle, especially from the Rivals guys.
I think Jeremy is just saying that Sam could end up at tight end, rather than LB
Great insight Jeremy, glad to see you back at 11W! I'm guessing the committed QB you're talking about is Grier?
Nice, long strides, and that throw at 1:42... beautiful. Great size, nice throwing motion, fast... what's not to like?
You forgot the Dave constraint play: False start.
Alex, what do you think of Erick Smith? Obviously he just got the Bama offer, which could be for any number of reasons, but I've read some stuff on the Ozone and twitter about how he might be the best DB on the team? Considering how great the reports are on Lattimore, that definitely surprised me. Any info?
Ross, the idea of the offensive line selling the gun play action by carrying out the same pulls, etc. as they would when carrying out a misdirection run really seem to put pressure on the guards, in particular, as there's the pressure to first get to a certain spot, and then pass pro with completely different leverage and positioning than they would normally. For example, in the wheel route video, you can see Marcus Hall kick out and become the de facto left tackle. Makes me feel good about bringing guys like Marcelys Jones into the fold at guard.
This seems like an appropriate place to post this:
Don't think I'll ever have it in me to root for ND after reading this:
Zeke's numbers dropped his senior year? From what I understood, he rushed for over 2000 yards this past season, and had 30 some TD's, hence the huge bump in the recruiting rankings. Regardless, glad he's on his way here.
He was raised by his stepfather since he was 2, who has the surname Apple. He doesn't like to talk about his biological father, but he basically changed his last name to honor his stepfather.
