I stated above that I define elite as a team ranked inside the top ten at the time of the game.  But for your information:

2014 MSU - ranked 7

2015  Notre Dame ranked 8


Wisconsin ranked 8

Nebraska ranked 9

TTUN  Ranked 3 


2015 MSU ranked 9

2016 Clemson ranked 3

Other notables that I did not count

2015 TTUN ranked 12

Oklahoma ranked 14

Yes he has taken too much heat.  I totally agree.   For you stat geeks, here is one that I find interesting.   Going back to 1968,  if you rate a QB by how well he plays against elite teams, JT rates very high.   I define an elite team as a team that is ranked inside the top ten when the game is played.  

Rex Kern - 5 - 0 = 100%

Craig Krenzel - 5 - 1 = 83%

JT Barrett - 5-2 = 71%

Pretty good company.   

JT is also the only one of the 3 who has not lost to TTUN.  Kern lost to TTUN in 1968 when they were ranked 12th and Krenzel's one loss against a top 10 team came against them in 2003 when they were ranked 5th.

In Texas guns are allowed in any bar or restaurant that makes less than 50% of its revenue from alcohol sales.    If a place has a 50% sign on the door you can't bring a gun in, which in my mind is smart.  If the primary product is alcohol, not allowing guns is s good idea,   Also,  if you get stopped for an alcohol related indent like public intoxication or DUI,  and you have a gun in the vicinity, you lose your concealed carry license.     We should be held to a higher standard.

Not sure Urban has always been perfect at adapting schemes.  I think Herman was not maybe not Urban.  In 2014 Herman adapted the offense to a new QB style when Barrett was lost.  In 2015 after Herman left Urban/Beck/Warriner tried to shoehorn a 6'5", 250 pound QB into a read option offense.    We all know how 2015 worked out.

Same here.  Could not pass it up.  Maybe the best post in a long time.

Chis Ash comes to his office every day and thinks to himself  "you know, I had it pretty good at Ohio State.  Why did I ever leave?"

LOL  Did you really say that?   The first time we have 2 back to back 3 and outs, the board will be melting down screaming for Wilson to be fired.      Expectations are being set that is we don't score every time we have the ball the season will be a total failure.    We have to score every time and we have to beat each and every opponent by at least 50 points.
