My viewpoint is that JT makes better use of the talent around him, while Braxton is possibly better in terms of being his own "weapon." If that makes sense. JT has made some big time plays with his legs this year, but Braxton always had at least 2-3 a game when he was under center, however, he didn't use the receivers around him nearly as well as JT does.  I can remember long droughts where Braxton never even threw a pass to a TE!

I gave UCLA a two spot jump over a Baylor team that has lost more recently than Ohio State and also hasn't played a difficult schedule.  UCLA making a move upward comes down to a. they beat a ranked team, and b. Ohio State's season has been good enough to keep UCLA from jumping them with 2 losses where Baylor's imo has not.

Comment 23 Nov 2014

Baylor didn't look great against a less than mediocre Ok. State team, and UCLA beat a ranked USC team... I think the jump makes pretty good sense.  And the CFP committee has shown in the past the tendency to have teams that play and win jump teams that are idle.

But that is why it would be so perfect.  To look at _ichigan, Brady Hoke, and the entire TTUN and say we don't give a rat's ass about you, and the tradition you speak of is only as i_portant as we _ake it out to be.  As bad as _ichigan is, I could see the Buckeyes throwing on the black unifor_s and that alone could take _ichigan out of their ga_e _entally and give the Buckeyes a serious psychological advantage.  Kind of like Brady Hoke's "no jacket/long sleeves" _ove his first year against Urban that was co_pletely ineffective.

What absolutely caused me to want to pull out what little hair I have left, is on one of Tevin Coleman's big runs (not sure which) you can see Grant, after the ball gets snapped, take a terrible angle, and he ends up getting eaten up by an OG WHO IS ALREADY BLOCKING SOMEONE!  So essentially, Indiana's undersized, not nearly as talented, OG whose name I don't even know, is on film blocking two Ohio State players (I believe he was engaged blocking Derron Lee when Grant basically just ran into him and got stuffed as well) at the same time on one play.

They wore the Alty's against scUM last year in the sh*t house, so I don't think they're against breaking out something other than the typical jerseys.

Comment 22 Nov 2014

Man, wow... I want them to wear black, and buy a black jersey, as much as the next guy... But there is a stark, real, and deeply cutting chance that you're reading FAR too much into this.  If it were me, I'd hold out the black jersey's until next week against *ichigan.

This is a great moment in the history of our favorite program.  He deserves this, not just for what he did as a buckeye, but for how he's been an example of what a legacy to a program is supposed to be.  Honored to have met him when I did.  Great person, great player, great buckeye.

In terms of duplicate threads on one topic, I will channel my internal Notorious B.I.G.  here we go:  Gimme da dupes, gimme da dupes, gimme da dupes!  I like em all folks!

Comment 21 Nov 2014

The only thing that confuses me, is that from the start UK didn't have enough to keep him there.  He commited to scUM to start.  So what's changed?  They're not any better than they were when he gave his pledge to scUM, so why is UK such a player in his recruitment now?

Comment 19 Nov 2014

You def. can't say that there hasn't been improvement.  I think the defense has imporved by something like 100 yards per game average...  I like the idea of muschamp as the sole DC, but Ash and Fickell have made strides this year and Muschamp and Meyer hate each other.

Comment 19 Nov 2014

Really have my fingers crossed, not just for what this kid does on the field, but for the fact that he's a good person.  Really hope he gets it together.

Comment 18 Nov 2014

For me it's not the fumbles, it's the damn drops.  On open looks, balls hitting him in the hand.  He's young though, can only get better.

Comment 18 Nov 2014

Struggles against the run?  You for sure confuse me... Let's look at the numbers.

1. Navy had 11 different ball carries run the ball and only got 370 yards against our defense.  Oh and they passed the ball 4 times.

2. UC rushed for a blustery 70 yards against Ohio State.

3. With 6 different carries, Maryland had 66 yards

4. Rutgers managed 149, but their best individual total was 83

5. Penn State had 16 yards, so a banner day for the pussy cats.

6. Five ball carriers for Illinois managed 106 yards against the Buckeyes.

7. Langord did go for 137 against Ohio state, but it was the 6th game in a row he'd gone over 100 yards, and he made it seven this past weekend.

8. David Cobb racked up 145 yards against the Buckeyes, but besides Gordon he's the best RB in the Big Ten.

Struggling against the run?  I'd say they're doing pretty good.  Cobb is an elite back, he's going to run for big yards against any and all defenses he goes against, and Michigan State is set up for Langford to have big games every time out.  When the Defense was supposed to give up little to no yardage, it has.

You might re-evaluate.

Obviously if the highly improbable happens and say, Missouri wins the SEC, I get it.  But if Georgia, even with two losses, on a hot streak, and a win over the SEC west champion (more than likely bama at this point), you think they'd get exluded?  I think it would be great if they did, personally, but I just can't imagine it.

Comment 17 Nov 2014

If they win out and win the SEC...?  You honestly think the CFP committee is going to exclude the SEC champion, no matter who it is?

Comment 16 Nov 2014

If Georgia wins out, beats a ranked Tech team, and then wins the SEC I think they could get in.

Comment 16 Nov 2014

You don't stop Melvin Gordon, but you have to slow him down, which our defense can do.  A big part of why Nebraska couldn't stop him was the fact that they didn't have what we have.  They don't have Adolphus Washington, and Michael Bennett clogging up all the holes in the middle of the line.  I think Gordon would go for about 125-150 against us, and maybe a TD, but we would limit them big time through the air, and if they score 14 points, that won't be enough to stop what we're going to do on Offense.
