Michigan state to win handily which would solidify a top 10 ranking and then have Wisconsin win out and be top 10 for B1G championship

One thing that was painfully obvious was that we just don't have enough speed in the secondary. In an 80 yard foot race our guys were getting left in the dust. To me that is a bad omen when playing any type of press at the line of mistake in the first 5 yards and we are toast. We had the same problem last year with Roby being the only one who could run someone down from behind. I still have visions of Iowa's TE's running away from Armani Reeves. >>>shivers<<<<

That was 2007, but your point is still very valid. Gotta win out and let the dominoes fall where they may. Too many things can/need to happen and it will suck all the fun out of the season if we focus on all of this every week

My $.02 would be that the most beneficial scenario would be for Sparty to beat Nebraska and be either in, or on the verge of, the top 5 when we play them. At that point, we would have to handle them convincingly (at least on par with what Oregon did). Then I would actually be pulling for Wisconsin to win out and play in the B1G championship. If they go into that game with one loss, they should also be well into the top 10. And again, we would need to pummel Bucky Badger. That would give us two quality wins over top 10 teams.

But of course, none of this matters if we don't win the rest of our games. And to that point I say, just enjoy the season!!

Yeah I wasn't 100% sure so I looked it up. From the NCAA rulebook:

12.8.3 Criteria for Determining Season of Competition. Minimum Amount of Competition.

Any competition, regardless of time, during a season in an intercollegiate sport shall be counted as a season of competition in that sport

Well I think it depends if that coach wants to lose to Ohio State every year or not

Comment 19 Sep 2014

Well medical redshirts must be applied for and then granted, so if he would be "able to play" around the 9-10 game mark and was then purposely held out, I would think his redshirt application would be denied rather swiftly. I think it would have to be a legitimate season ending injury to get one. That being said, who really knows for sure, the redshirt process seems to be one of those things that is decided in a dimly-lit, smoke-filled room somewhere

Also have to mention Kenny G's comeback against Purdue

And David Boston's punt return against Pitt with only 8 Buckeyes on the field

Andy Katzenmoyer destroying Korby Jones

Gamble's pick-six vs Penn State

Beanie's spin in the backfield then take it to the house in The Game

Miller to Smith heave to beat Wisconsin

Shazier's one-on-one goal line stand against Ball to keep him from breaking the TD record (which he would get later in the game)

Just be outside with a clear view of the southern'll see and hear the collision.
Comment 11 Sep 2014

I was a junior in high school. I was walking down the hall between 1st and 2nd period and heard a few other kids talking about it. Some of the teachers tried to go through the rest of the day like nothing had happened, others let us watch the TV coverage for the 40+ minutes we were in their class. As Hodge said, very surreal.

Also, I was at ground zero in 2007, and while it was not much more than a big construction site, it was still very emotional to be standing there and thinking about what happened just a few years before.

Guys we are 0-1 the last 1 time we played football, let's just stop playing!!

Comment 09 Sep 2014

You are correct in that it was 3 players total. Urban's first class (Noah Spence's class) would have had three more players if we were able to keep 85 scholarships. Then the rest of his classes would have been the same, i.e. only taking as many players as we have graduating/leaving.

However, I would argue that the scholarship reduction does have some sort of impact, especially this year more than the previous years because those three extra players would now be true juniors and/or redshirt sophomores and this teams could use some of those older, more experienced guys. BUT, on the other side of the coin, I also don't think that's they only reason (or even one of the most significant reasons) why we are in the position we are in.
