You could say a multi-millionaire family member or friend died, and in his will, you get his mansion and thus you have to move tomorrow.  

Or just do the traditional two weeks...

That's how we all go about something.  We just go about it.  Because it's interesting and people have interest. 

I need some Tylenol.

How are the Buckeyes perceived in Gainesville?

OSU has their former coach, and I hear many of Florida's fans are rather salty about that.  Especially a certain Orlando Sentinel writer.

Fuck them.  Wear it.  Tell them to suck your balls. 

OK, maybe don't tell them that.  But wear it.

Florida State had a ton of close calls last year.  Yes, OSU hasn't played as well as we as fans would like the last 3 games, but only 1 was actually close.  And OSU hasn't been behind in any game after about a minute into the 3rd quarter.  Now, if OSU starts having a lot of close calls throughout the B1G season, manages to win the B1G and go into the playoff undefeated, then get blasted in the semifinal game, they may have a comparison at that point.

Also, we don't have a QB that potentially committed sexual assault, stole crab legs from a store, and yelled "f her right in the p" in the middle of campus like a jackass.  Not to mention other FSU arrests.

Chiefs at home - definitely a win.  Seahawks at home, Bills on the road - both of those are tossups.  I'll bet the Bengals are 5-1 at the bye week and I would be pretty happy with that.

On the one hand, they have looked pretty solid.

On the other hand, I'd have said before the season that TTUN would be 3-1 right now.  I figured they'd lose to Utah and beat Oregon State, UNLV, and BYU.  I don't think BYU was anywhere near the #22 team in the nation - they're two miracle plays away from being 0-4.  They did give UCLA a game, but if that makes you a ranked team, then Northern Illinois and Texas Tech should be ranked right now.

The good news is that Utah is even better than I thought, and losing to them at their place by 7 actually doesn't look that bad, if you're one to play the "good loss" game (I think all losses are bad, I don't like to play the "we only lost to so-and-so by like 7 points, that's pretty good!").  The bad news - Jake Rudock is their QB.  

Beat MSU and maybe TTUN has a top 10 argument.  Until then, they're right where they should be - #22.  I don't think the Silver Bullets would have much trouble shutting down TTUN's offense.  I would be nervous about the offense going up against TTUN's defense, though, at this point in time.  Thankfully, there's still plenty of time to get the offense humming before having to face them.

The offense definitely took a big step in the right direction.  It still wasn't did feel like a few plays were left out there...main thing to fix in that regard is the deep ball, making sure it's deep enough so that it matters when the WRs get behind the defenders.  Cardale definitely looked more comfortable, made better decisions...very sharp throwing the ball for the most part.  Still too many silly penalties.  I was hoping they could get into the 40s or even the 50s...and it could have happened were it not for the deep ball issues. 

We can complain about the defense giving up some yards and allowing WMU to hold on to the ball for a while, but at the end of the day, they only gave up 12.  Could've played better, but oh well. 

Comment 24 Sep 2015

Complacency.  Because how else do you explain:

- A QB finishing 5th in the Heisman and a QB who won 3 starts against the #1, #2, and #13 teams in the country struggling against Hawaii and NIU.

- Four starters from an offensive line that pushed around Sparty, Wisconsin, Alabama, and Oregon struggling to push around Hawaii and NIU.

- A RB that went off for over 200 yards against Wisc, Bama, and Oregon barely cracking 100 yards against Hawaii and NIU (that, of course, relates to the blocking)

Of course, we miss Tom Herman, Devin Smith, and Evan Spencer.  Devin Smith was the deep threat, Evan Spencer did all of the little things to help the team win, and Tom Herman made up the brilliant gameplans post-VT.  But there's no reason that the offense can't succeed without those guys.  Get rid of the complacency and I think the results will be a lot better.

Comment 23 Sep 2015

I think complacency comes into play with things like poor blocking, not running through some arm tackles, not running the best routes possible, etc.  It's part of what's going on with the offense IMO.  

To me, the #1 thing is to get the blocking better.  And not just the line, but the skill players (those not wearing #15, anyway).  Block better on the edge.  This offense needs to have more explosive plays.  That will open things up.  QBs need protected better.  I do agree, pick a QB and go with them.  Unless they're having an Andy-Dalton-vs-Browns-on-TNF-last-season type of horrendous performance, don't be too quick to yank them.  Third is the playcalling - because I think the plays will work better with better blocking and a QB and offense jelled and in rhythm.

I will say that I've never gone to an away OSU game.  On the list of away games I'd like to go to, Purdue ranks near the bottom.  lol
